The man who took Lupita Nyongo’s pearl-encrusted Oscar dress from the London West Hollywood Hotel earlier this week returned it Friday — not out of remorse, but because the pearls weren’t real.

TMZ initially reported that a man called them Friday claiming he had lifted the Calvin Klein design from the actress’ hotel room when it noticed the door was ajar. He says he then removed a couple of pearls from the frock, took them to Los Angeles‘ garment district to be appraised and found out they were fake.

When it was reported stolen, Nyongo’s stylist claimed it was worth $150,000, although the thief says it’s “almost worthless” because the jewels weren’t real.
