Woman hopes to retrieve lost engagement ring
Tara Sharp is hoping to get her engagement ring back.
The last time she had it was Sunday, Jan. 19 when she and her family went swimming at the Sam Ketcham Pool in Williams Lake.
"I took my engagement ring off and put it in a zippered pouch in my purse, before going in," Sharp said. "When we came out of the pool, I grabbed my Chapstick (from the zippered pouch) and put some on, I put it back in the pouch and believe I forgot to zipper it back up."
Since posting information about the ring on Facebook, Sharp received a message that someone had visited a local jewellery store asking how much a ring was worth, that looked exactly like hers.
"He was heading to a pawn shop so I phoned and learned a couple had been there with a ring."
Sharp went in and showed the pawn shop owner the picture, he said it looked like her ring.
"So now there is someone out there, that either has my ring or knows where it is, and I just want my ring back," Sharp said.
The ring is a size nine, white gold with a four-prong setting. It has one centre diamond and two rows of diamond chips circling it.
Sharp has reported the missing ring to the Williams Lake RCMP and said if anyone finds it they can drop it off to the local detachment.
