KELOWNA - A Penticton woman in Kelowna for a doctor’s appointment lost a ring with huge sentimental value and RCMP are asking for help to find the missing jewelry.

Police say the 69-year-old Penticton woman lost the ring somewhere in the 400-block of Cedar Avenue in the Mission area of Kelowna.

“She lost her precious ring somewhere between her doctor’s office and her vehicle parked on the shoulder of Cedar Avenue not far from Pandosy Street,” Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release.

It’s a custom-made, 14-carat yellow and white gold ladies ring with diamonds and an opal.

O’Donaghey says the ring contains gold from her mother’s wedding ring and diamonds from her grandmother’s wedding ring.

“The opal stone in her ring had been given to the woman by her mother at the age of 12,” he says in the release. “The opal itself was a gift to her mother who was a Scot from her father, who was a Canadian soldier.”

If you have found this lost ring you are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
