Engagement and wedding rings STOLEN


My husband and I went overseas and the house-sitter broke & stole various goods in our home, including my car & petrol from my husbands motorcycle.

He brought criminals into our precious home, abused our trust and slept with various woman in my house. My most prized possessions, that being my engagement and wedding ring has been stolen.

The police investigation started 2 months ago with no positive results yet, whilst this criminal still lives his life quite happily. He has no remorse, said he would return a cash sum of R650 and pay for the broken items.

We have heard and seen nothing. The damages and theft amount to a total of R40 000. I desperately want me rings back - no money can replace the sentimental value.

Sincerely Yolanda Petzer

    I do wear them all the time but THIS ONCE I thought that they would be safer hidden, packed away and out of sight in my own home verses getting them scratched and losing them overseas on the beaches in Greece. I've never once lost or misplaced them in 14 years. Terribly sad. The thief has no concept of the value they have to me and my husband.

    Sorry to hear that, but why did you not take your rings with you? Aren't you suppose to be wearing them all the time?
