A bride-to-be was re-united with her lost £2,000 engagement ring after an eagle-eyed jeweller spotted it – on a customer's finger. Nickie Bose, 22, was devastated after she lost the ring – a family heirloom passed down by her mother Tracey – on a night out with friends. So determined Tracey, 48, turned detective and visited every jewellers and pawn shop in Swindon with photographs of the 14-carat marquise diamond.
And amazingly a worker at Hinds Jewellers recognised the ring when a woman walked into the store and asked for it to be valued.
The member of staff secretly called the police and the ring was recovered. Nickie was so relieved to get it back she simply accepted an apology and did not press charges.
