Police are asking to help to find an 83 year old woman's engagement ring, which she had worn for more than 60 years. Officers have renewed their appeal for information following the first anniversary of the theft. The ring was reported stolen from a home in Chandlers Ford.
Police have pursued several lines of enquiry during an investigation, which included the questioning of a woman aged in her 40s.
The ring is described as gold/platinum diamond, which has five diamonds set onto a flat base. It has great sentimental value to the lady. Officers have been working with her to produce a digital photo-fit of the ring as part of the appeal
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "This whole experience is as though somebody has deprived me of part of my life. My future husband and I were living in Scotland in the early 1950s when we took the Waverley paddle steamer to Gourock. He asked me to go down and look at engines. Once there, he got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. The ring was so much part of me; a part that I feel is still missing. I've lost my husband, and now I've lost the token of his love. My home, my space, was invaded. I've never had anything taken before in my life. I don't understand how someone could do something like that. It still hurts. If you have any information, please tell the police."
