Jeweler gives wedding ring to wrong person, woman from Muhlenberg Co. searches for her ring

MUHLENBERG CO., Ky (WFIE) – A Muhlenberg County woman is looking for her wedding ring after she said her jeweler mistakenly gave it to the wrong person.

Jessica Piper has a lot of smiles on this Mother’s Day.

She spent it with her family, the sun was shining, but something is missing. His covenant.

Piper says she went to her jeweler for a little repair and never saw him again.

“My husband came in and said, ‘I’m here to get my wife’s ring,'” Piper said. “And they said, ‘We don’t have a ring. Someone picked it up.

They filed a report with Kay Jeweler’s in Bowling Green and implicated local authorities.

“After investigating the jewelry store, we discovered that one of the employees had just made a mistake,” Piper said.

A $6,200 mistake, leaving Piper without her most special piece of jewelry and a much richer stranger.

“They gave our ring to someone who was trying to get their own ring back,” Piper said.

Instead of bringing the ring back to correct the mistake, Piper says the man kept it and sold it.

“We were told he brought the ring home, and I guess he and his wife separated or divorced, and he sold it through Snapchat,” she said.

Piper says she didn’t even know what or how to feel next.

“Shocked and nervous, scared to think someone hurt us,” Piper said, describing her emotions.

So she took to social media to spread the word. With over 1,000 shares on her Facebook post, she hopes someone can find her.

“Everyone is devastated, and everyone always asks me about it,” Piper said. “Social media has been my biggest support.”

Her left ring finger feels more bare without it this month, as this weekend was her and her husband Cody’s birthday.

13 years together, four years married.

“We’ve been together since I was in eighth grade,” Piper said. “We met when I was 13, so we’ve been together half my life.”

Her ring was a symbol of their many years growing up together, and she hoped to have it until they got older.

“I would love to have it back. It means so much to me,” Piper said. land, so I’d like to get it back. I would do anything to get it back.
