Wife is desperate to retrieve family ring

A couple from Gauteng has endured two years of an anxiety-filled ring hunt, which up until now has borne no fruit.

Simone and Tyler Gonçalves paid a visit to Hazyview in 2015, but little did they know that this would be the last they saw of a 100-year-old ring which had been passed down from generation to generation as per the Gonçalves family tradition.

Tyler had left the ring in the room thinking it would be safe. Upon their return from a game drive, they discovered that they could not have been more wrong. Simone suspects that one of the cleaning staff might have snatched it while they were away.

“The ring first belonged to Tyler’s great-grandfather, and when he passed away, it was passed on to his grandfather. When the latter passed away in 1997, Tyler’s father vowed to take care of the ring until he was old enough to take care of it,” said Simone.

Needless to say the personal and emotional association outweighs its material worth. “As Tyler and his gramps had an extremely close relationship, he was and still is devastated,” she added.

Simone approached Hazyview Herald as a last resort, hoping to find it before their first wedding anniversary on December 8.

“I’m praying for a miracle. I’m hoping to give it to him as an anniversary gift,” she said.

Simone is willing to buy it back from anyone who might be in possession of it. Should you have any information, Simone can be contacted on 082-555-5121 or [email protected]
