You’ll Never Figure Out How This Man Found His Girlfriend’s Stolen Engagement Ring.
After learning the ring was gone, Nico had drive with Caitie to pick her father up from the airport.
Nico drove to the airport in silence, having no idea what he was going to do. He texted Stuart saying that he had something to tell him in private. When they arrived at the airport, Nico ran inside to greet Stuart and quickly broke the news while Caitie waited in the car.
“Not only was it this heirloom that was given to me by her dad to keep safe and I misplaced it, but her father was still recovering from his mother passing away just nine months earlier," explained Nico. But Stuart was calm and told him they'd "figure it out."
Here's where fate intervened.
Nico decided to take a different route home to avoid traffic. At an intersection, he spotted a sign pinned to a tree on the side of the road. In big bold letters, it read: "Found Engagement Ring." If they hadn't gone to the airport to meet her dad and taken an alternate route home, Nico never would have seen the sign.
Nico left Caitie and her father at the house to text the number on the sign.
He texted the description of the ring and it was his! The good samaritans found the ring in a nearby alley where the movers were working. Nico assumed the movers must have thrown it out after thinking that the box only had a crumpled plastic bag in it.
The couple who found the ring almost threw it away, too!
But something told them to look into the plastic. Sure enough, there was a ring inside! “I didn’t even know the ring was missing until that morning. This all happened in the span of like two hours. I found out the ring had been stolen, I drove to pick up her dad and told him about it. The movers had to have seen it and thrown it away. Then my neighbors found it and almost threw it away, and then kept it. Then they put up this one sign, and it was the only sign they put up, on a street that I never go on," Nico explained.
A few weeks later, Nico and Caitie went to Paris for their dream vacation.
On New Year's Eve, Nico proposed to Caitie in the city of love. Of course, she said yes! He was also able to finally tell her about the drama of the ring being lost and found.
