Woman Says She Lost $34,750 Wedding Ring
She tells police it might have been lost at Wirth Park; meanwhile a man reports losing his $300 wedding band.
Ah, the inequities of the genders.
This week's police reports showed two complaints of lost wedding rings: a man's worth $300 and a woman's worth $34,750.
While that may an extreme comparison, the pair of lost rings are the third and fourth to reported missing in Brookfield in the past six weeks:
- On Tuesday, a Waukesha man, 45, told Brookfield police that he dropped his $300 wedding ring on the floor and forgot to pick it back up before leaving an engineering office at 155 S. Executive Drive.
- The day before, a Mequon woman, 43, told Brookfield police that she might have lost her $34,750, three-carat wedding ring while at Wirth Park for a baseball tournament June 19. The woman said she was retracing her steps from that Sunday and calling other places she visited, such as Qdoba.
- On June 5, a Milwaukee woman said she lost her wedding ring while shopping at Boston Store and JC Penney at Brookfield Square mall. She said it was appraised at $2,840 in 1998.
- And on May 13, a Wauwatosa woman told Brookfield police she might have lost her $14,000 wedding ring in the parking lot at Kohl's Department store.
