A Woman’s Custom Engagement Ring Made of Gemstones From Her Mother’s Wedding Band Was Stolen in the Mail – Brides

When Victor Clarke proposed to Clarissa Mulloy, he popped the question with a one-of-a-kind, tailor-made ring that featured diamonds and sapphires from both of their mothers’ wedding bands. Now, the irreplaceable bauble has likely been stolen from a package in transit. Mulloy told WREG-TV, a CBS-affiliated television station in Memphis, Tennessee, on May, 1, 2024, that the gold band had broken, so she shipped the sparkler back to the original jeweler in San Antonio, Texas, for repairs via FedEx. “We sent it out on the 17th of April, and the same day, it made it to St. Rose, Louisiana,” she recalls. “Then, it went on to Memphis, and the same day, they determined the package was damaged.”

Two weeks later, FedEx told the couple that the package had been opened, and the engagement ring was no longer inside. “It was known that there was extra insurance on the package, and the jeweler’s address was on the package,” Mulloy notes. “There was evidence that there could be valuable items inside the package.” Mulloy theorizes that one of the FedEx workers stole the ring since the package was in transit before being determined “damaged.”

After receiving the news, the couple filed police reports in Memphis and St. Rose and reached out to pawn shops. They’re also tracking social media, hoping that information on the whereabouts of the ring will surface. FedEx’s security team is also conducting an investigation on behalf of the couple.

Mulloy told the outlet that her engagement ring has $3,000 insurance on it, but since the bauble features heirloom gemstones with sentimental meaning, it’s much more valuable and thus irreplaceable. “Because both of our dads are deceased, they were happy to donate them,” Mulloy explains. “I love the ring so much. It’s easily my favorite possession.”

If anyone finds the missing sparkler, Mulloy says that person will receive a reward. “We wouldn’t press charges at this point,” she adds. “I’m just hoping that this reaches enough people that maybe we will luck out, and someone will recognize it. It feels like such a big, heavy loss. Somebody else has it, and it could be anywhere, and there’s no way to replace it.”
