[LISTEN] Help solve the mystery of the Kirstenbosch diamond engagement ring

A Cape Talk listener was leaving the New Year's Eve concert at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, when he came upon a box containing what he says looks like an expensive diamond engagement ring.

I would very much like to make somebody's New Year by being able to find the rightful owner of this diamond ring.

Theo, Cape Talk listener

I have taken the box to the manufacturing jeweller and have confirmed that it's real and was sold, they don't know exactly to whom.

Theo, Cape Talk listener

The caller says Kirstenbosch has not received any queries about a lost ring.

Anyone who wants to claim the ring, says Theo, will have to verify they are the rightful owner.

If you can be of help in any way to solve this New Year's mystery, contact comments@capetalk.co.za.

Listen below to hear the full story of the lost ring.
