(UPDATE: Jan. 12 @ 9:40 am) – The search is over and an engagement ring turned into the Kelowna RCMP in late December has been returned to its rightful owner.

To make the reunion between the woman and her ring even more meaningful, police said it was given to her by her late husband.

“This is a story with a happy ending for the owner,” said RCMP spokesperson Ryan Watters.

“We applaud the good Samaritan who initially brought the ring to the detachment and are pleased it is back on the finger of the rightful owner.”

The misplaced ring was found in the 1600 block of Bertram Street and handed into the RCMP on Dec. 27.

(Original story: Dec. 28 @ 10:25 am) – The Kelowna RCMP is hoping to reunite a lost engagement ring with its rightful owner.

A good Samaritan recently found the multi-diamond engagement ring and dropped it off at the detachment on Wednesday.

According to police, the ring was found in the 1600 block of Bertram Street and was handed over to the RCMP after unsuccessful attempts to find the owner on social media.

“This ring obviously has great meaning to its owner and appears to be well worn and valuable,” said Cst. Mike Della-Paolera. “The ring is very distinct and has a word stamped on the inside.”

Anyone who believes this is their ring can head to the Kelowna RCMP detachment at the corner of Richter Street and Clement Avenue.

If you’re trying to claim the ring, you should be prepared to provide evidence of ownership or positively identify it.

The Kelowna RCMP will hold the ring for 90 days to give the owner a chance to come forward and claim it.
