Woman gets back $30K ring after 14 years
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - June 10, 2011 (WPVI) -- A woman in New Mexico has been reunited with a $30,000 diamond engagement ring that she lost while making dinner in 1997.
Santa Fe police say the ring was returned to its owner Wednesday. It had been in a police evidence room for more than two years.
The police department said a few weeks ago it would auction off the ring if no one came forward to claim it. Some did, but police told the Santa Fe New Mexican that no one could prove it was theirs.
Detectives found the right owner when the woman provided paperwork proving it was hers, including a receipt and a picture of her wearing the ring.
The owner says she lost the ring while preparing dinner.
