Granddaughter Seeks Ring Stolen Decades Ago In Everett

Everett, Unusual Photos In Everett


A look at the stolen engagement ring.

Every once in a while we get unusual requests at for people or items from Everett. We don’t always run these but this one caught our eye. Twenty some years ago a woman interrupted a burglary at her home on Beverly Boulevard in south Everett. Among items taken were an engagement ring and wedding band. Today her granddaughter is looking to recover that ring or find out what became of it.

“I am hoping that due to the age of the robbery being unique, that submission of our loss on might refresh the memory of the person who took it. To try to make contact with us. Ideally, so we could get back the ring, or at least learn what happened to it. Some type of closure as to its status would be our goal.”

A look at the wedding band.

Below is the text of an online ad they placed seeking the ring’s return.

Also a couple of photos.

The black and white photo is of the engagement ring, the color photo is of the matching wedding band.

“Ring taken from grandmothers house in the early/mid 1990’s. She came home early- people were taking things from her home. Ring- yellow 14K gold with a center diamond. Two stones on each side of the center diamond, then a thin gold bar. Lastly, five small diamonds on each side after the bar. Color photo is of the wedding ring. Black and white photos are of the missing engagement ring. Wedding and engagement ring design are the same, except the engagement has a center diamond. No questions asked with its return. Please, if you have the ring.”

If you have information about this ring you can contact the granddaughter directly via email through herΒ gmail account, Thanks so much

    The long posting here because in reading this, I am really disappointed in the attitudes of the number of negative postings here: Wow, so looks like some of the people reading this posting feel that after a certain many years you can’t still search for something STOLEN FROM YOU? Would the hate for this posting be any less if the ring was taken just 10 or 5 years ago? Wow, just let the lady have her likely last chance at finding the ring or perhaps finding what happened to it. If you read, yes, READ the posting she is not demanding or saying, “give it back to me free!” If I had the ring, I would contact them and ask for a reward or compensation for giving it back. How old do you think the lady is if this happened 20 years ago, likely not “younger generation”, do the math. Perhaps the lady posting the ad is not listing a reward because she’s trying to avoid scammers and weirdos. Internet trolling- exactly what’s going on with the majority of the postings for the ad. NO REAL INFORMATION on the ring or even just, “good luck”. Just stating the obvious, “its long gone”, or rude, what they believe are cute and smart one-liners that are just confirming the ton of extra time and nastiness these people have in their hearts. Hope the rude, and cold-hearted postings here experience the same nasty reaction if ever they reach out for some kindness or help from their community. What goes around comes around. Let your haters be your motivators. GOOD LUCK TO SOME RESOLVE ON YOUR SEARCH. – non-bitter Everett WA resident πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Internet trolling– look up the definition while you are trolling for ads. Look up negative as well, clearly don’t have an understanding for definitions yet use them in postings. How is YOUR REALITY THE REALITY for everything and everyone to be measured against? The real reality is that this posting has upset, and frustrated so many people. Why? What’s it to you? πŸ™‚

        Being realistic, I am helping people by crushing the bit of hope they have- yeah, your a real great person. Thanks for nothing πŸ™‚

    Isn’t think where someone usually says “I have a right to free speech, even if you don’t agree with what I’m saying”?

    I think it’s stupid to expect that a ring stolen in a burglary 20 years ago will be found and returned to the grandchild of the owner. Even if someone HAD bought this exact ring from a pawnshop 20 years ago, then had seen this article in this obscure news paper, why would they return a ring FOR FREE when they had PAID for it? This is just the entitled bull that I continue to see from the younger generation. Calling someone a troll doesn’t negate that they may have a point.

    Nothing positive to say? Then you all negative above- internet trolls. INTERNET TROLLS IN EVERETT πŸ™‚

    I think the lady posting this was hoping for some information on the ring that probably holds great sentimental value. Think these type of comments are what they want to hear, over, and over, and over? The posting doesn’t ask for, “what do you think about my chances”. Lady just wants help. Can’t help her? Then why the trolling?

      Unless someone breaks in and steals it, then they might know how it feels. Sometimes it takes an unfortunate event to knock someone down and give them a moment to see what it’s like for someone else to experience loss. Maybe it’ll happen to you.

    I know from personal experience that sometimes stolen items come back to their owner. To the lady looking for a returned ring, I wish you much good luck and hope the ring returns to you. I know it must mean a lot to you. I have my mother’s wedding ring and I don’t want to imagine what it would be like to lose it. It may have gone to a pawn shop but what if the person who purchase it sees this post? Never give up hope.

    Don’t understand why this posting has brought out such rude, hurtful, and totally unnecessary comments? The comments are not clever or useful, they are just pathetic. Leave this woman alone if if you are of no help. Good luck on your ring search! πŸ™‚

    Wow, what a bunch of naysayers. If you have nothing to contribute but your negative opinions, that says a lot about you.

    Pretty sure that it was long gone to a pawnshop.
