Did you lose an expensive wedding ring set?

MONROE — Maybe it was a stressful day, a careless moment, or just a hole inside a pocket.

In February, though, someone dropped an expensive wedding ring set inside a Monroe bank, and no one’s come forward to claim it since.

Julie Stuvland, an evidence technician with the Monroe Police Department, has been trying to find the owner.

The ring set was found at the Wells Fargo branch along U.S. 2, Monroe police spokeswoman Debbie Willis said.

It was on the floor, near the teller counter.

Bank staff held onto the rings hoping the owner would return.

In May, the rings were placed in Monroe police custody.

Investigators took the set to a local jeweler who could look for any identifying marks.

They were told the rings had been custom-made by a shop in east King County, Stuvland said.

Police sent pictures of the set to the jewelry shop, but that didn’t draw any fresh clues.

They posted lost-and-found notices online, and contacted national insurance groups, in case someone had filed a claim.

Stuvland doesn’t like to give up.

Last year, someone in Monroe turned in a class ring they’d found. The ring was from a high school in the Midwest.

Stuvland was able to reach the class reunion committee and track down the owner, who was living in Monroe.

Lost items often make their way to the local police station, but usually it’s wallets, keys and bicycles, she said.

Police are holding back some key details about the ring set. They hope the rightful owner will be able to provide specifics to prove it’s theirs.

Anyone with information should call the police department at 360-794-6300.
