    mother's wedding ring stolen from rightful heir

    I would like to know what my friend could do about her mothers wedding ring that was promised to her by the mother on her wedding day, as well as when she was in hospital. Her step father went and gave it to his mother, who then went and melted the ring down and sold the gold for cash!!?

    Many times an oral promise of a gift will not hold up. The gift was not completed during lifetime so it would go into the estate.
