A 31-year-old woman who lost her engagement ring in Dublin city centre has appealed for the public’s help.

Lisa Quinn O’Flaherty was in the Grand Canal area of the city on Tuesday night, and spent some time in Lucio’s restaurant on Clanwilliam Terrace. She believes that she was wearing the ring while she was dining at the restaurant.

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.

Lisa is now retracing her steps last night in an effort to find the treasured ring. She walked from the restaurant to Café Bar H on the Grand Canal, and later again, she walked to the car park behind Clanwilliam Square.

When she arrived home, she realised that the ring was gone.

“I’m really sure that I was wearing my ring at the restaurant because I would have noticed if it was missing.”

“It’s really heartbreaking. I did the whole retracing my steps this morning and scanning the ground, but it wasn’t there.”

“I’m really upset. It’s my favourite piece of jewellery. It’s not even loose. It’s never fallen off before, and I was only drinking diet coke.”
