Eric Cloutier will likely never be allowed to forget what happened to his wife wedding ring.
With his wife in the hospital after giving birth to their newest child, the California resident decided to let his other children participate in an annual community garage sale. Among the items Cloutier brought to the sale was an empty watch box, which sold for $10, ABC News noted.
The day after his wife came home, she went looking for the box. When he told her that he’d sold it, she became very upset. It turns out she had hidden her diamond wedding ring — valued at $23,000 — in the box for safe keeping.
The Cloutiers — especially, one imagines, Mr. Cloutier — are hoping the unknown blonde woman who purchased the box will return the ring.
