Man accidentally sells wife's wedding ring for $10

Posted: Updated:

A California couple is asking the public for help locating a woman who the husband accidentally sold a box to without realizing his wife's $23,000 wedding ring was inside.

KTLA reports Racquel Cloutier put her wedding ring in the wooden watch box for safekeeping while she was in a hospital delivering her fifth child.

Her husband Eric didn't realize she had done so, and sold the box with the ring inside at a neighborhood garage sale for $10.  The ring was not insured.

The Cloutiers are hoping the woman who bought the box will see the story on the news and return it.

“It’s my wedding ring and its a one of a kind,” Cloutier told KTLA. “It’s such a bad feeling whenever you lose something, especially when it means so much to you.

The couple is offering a reward for the return of the ring.
