You’ll Never Figure Out How This Man Found His Girlfriend’s Stolen Engagement Ring.

Making the decision to propose to the person of your dreams is a huge step for someone to make. You try to make the proposal something that your partner will never forget. You want everything to be absolutely perfect, including the engagement ring. The ring you choose is extremely important, especially if the ring you use is a family heirloom. This man had his worst nightmare come true when the heirloom engagement ring he was given, went missing.

Nico Bellamy is 27 years old and is head over heels in love with his girlfriend, Caitie Schlisserman.

In fact, Nico was planning on asking her to marry him. After Nico and Caitie had been dating for quite a long time, Caitie's father, Stuart Schlisserman, had a surprise for Nico.

The morning of Caitie's sister's wedding, Stuart took Nico aside and gave him an engagement ring that belonged to Caitie's grandmother.

“I joke that it was a not-so-subtle hint to get on with it already, but I think in reality he expected that after being together for seven years, I’d probably be proposing at some point in the future and he wanted his daughter to have a family heirloom," Nico told PEOPLE.

Nico put the ring in a safety deposit box, and continued waiting for the perfect time to pop the big question.

He wasn't quite ready to propose, yet. Nico wanted to wait for the dream vacation the couple was planning.

Time had passed and the couple hired movers to help them move into a new house across town.

Because Nico wanted to keep the ring close to him, he withdrew the ring from the safety deposit box. He put the ring in a plastic bag, which was placed into a box, and into his backpack.

When he went to retrieve the ring, Nico was horrified to see that his backpack was unzipped and the ring was gone!

"When I dumped everything out and realized the ring wasn’t there, I ran to the bathroom and threw up immediately,” said Nico. He assumed that it must have been the movers that had taken the ring. He called them but received no response.
