There is a substantial amount of money in play, as well as jewelry, etc.

My mother solved the jewelry problem for my sisters and I. She lost most of her marbles before she died and this helped her. She flushed the jewelry down the toilet and did not tell anyone for a long time. Loostening the bonds of physical possessions, I suppose. There were modest size diamonds (very modest, but of some value) in gold settings, among other things.
