Mother-of-the-bride searching for lost rings

A mother has sent out an urgent plea for assistance after losing her daughter and soon to be son-in-law's wedding and engagement rings on the way to the wedding.

Mother-of-the-bride Leanne Nolan says the rings were left in the back of a taxi in the city on Saturday night.

Leanne and her sister boarded the cab near the Mercure Hotel in Swanston Street around 6pm for the short trip to the Aquarium in Flinders Street.

"My sister and I were in the back seat and were getting tangled up in our outfits and my sister put the rings down,"

"When we got out she didn’t have them and we rang the cab companies and put an alert out and whatever but we haven’t heard anything" Leanne told Neil Mitchell.

The pair then had the unenviable task of informing the bride of the loss.

"She's standing there and she’s saying 'I want my ring, where's my ring'",

"It was horrible" Leanne said.

The brides wedding and engagement rings were in a small gold ring box and the grooms wedding ring was in a blue ring box.

Both boxes were in the same plastic sandwich bag.

If you know someone who might have found the rings or have any information as to their location please email online@3aw.com.au or call 96 900 693.

  • It's the love they show for each other that will survive a long marriage, not the rings they where on their fingure. I am sure there are a lot of people who have accidently lost their wedding rings, but still have remained faithful to each other.
