IT’S the sparkling jewel that will add a touch of class to any outfit.

Cathy Todd was given a welcome surprise when she found a diamond necklace under her pillow when staying at a Southampton hotel.

Jurys Inn selected a room at random from their 25 UK hotels to hide the necklace in as it marks its 20th anniversary.

The 57-year-old software support technician from Huddersfield was staying at the hotel after her work Blue Rock Systems’ party when she found the handcrafted diamond set in an 18K white gold pendant worth £750, which was supplied by The Diamond Store.
