A national antique silverware and jewellery outlet is appealing for members of the public to help find the owner of a suspected engagement ring and note found on a bench in Leazes Park, Newcastle.


AC Silver received the ring and note from a local couple, who said they found the items whilst out on a walk near their home on Sunday 7th April.

The ring - a single ruby set within a cluster of diamonds with a gold band - was found in a small box along with a short note which simply reads ‘I’m sorry’. It’s unclear if the ring was dropped or deliberately placed in the park.


AC Silver is an antique silverware and jewellery outlet, specialising in buying and selling genuine antique silver items including jewellery, centrepieces, candelabras and candlesticks, timepieces and Art Nouveau silverware – to name a few.


Andrew Campbell, founder of AC Silver said,


“It’s not every day you come across a beautiful engagement ring left in a park, but to find one with such a mysterious note is very bizarre! We can only speculate as to why the presumed owner is sorry, maybe he couldn’t go through with a proposal, or maybe he broke his girlfriend’s heart? Who knows.


“One thing we do know is that we’d like to get to the bottom of it and reunite the ring with its rightful owner. Any information is most welcome!”
