A heartbroken woman who lost her unique emerald engagement ring is “overjoyed” at finding it.

Lisa Quinn O’Flaherty (31) lost the ring in the Grand Canal area earlier this week (Tues 28) and had appealed to the public for help.

She spent some time in Lucio’s restaurant on Clanwilliam Terrace and believes that she was wearing the ring while she was dining at the restaurant.

After relentlessly searching for it for days she miraculously spotted the green emerald ring in the grass at Clanwilliam Square.

“Spotting the green ring in the grass was definitely a challenge. I was heartbroken when I lost it and I was delighted to have it back.

“I’d been back to the area every day searching for it and finally spotted the gold ring yesterday evening,” she said.

The bespoke ring, a yellow gold band with an oval shaped Emerald and ten diamonds in a cluster around it, was given to her by her now-husband when he proposed four years ago.

The pair have been married for three years.

“I was really upset. It’s my favourite piece of jewellery. It’s not even loose. It’s never fallen off before.”
