In 2013, a documentary was made based on Payne's life called The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne. Payne, now 87, would enter jewelry stores posing as a well-to-do woman looking for a diamond ring and ask to see an assortment of items. Using her charm, she would eventually cause the clerk to forget how many pieces were outside the cases and leave with one or two pieces.
