Woman left 'devastated' after wedding ring stolen from hospital

Stolen wedding and eternity rings.
Rings: The bands were stolen from the bathroom.

A woman has had her £10,000 wedding and eternity rings stolen from an Edinburgh hospital.

Christelle Visagie went into a bathroom at the Western General Hospital at 3.15pm on Tuesday October 23 and removed her wedding and eternity bands to wash her hands but forgot to put them back on again.

When the 33-year-old returned to the bathroom to get them, they were gone. Neither of the rings have been handed into security at the hospital and have been reported stolen.

The wedding ring is a platinum band with a single one carat diamond and the eternity ring is platinum with 24 diamonds around the band. Combined, they are worth around £10,000.

A police spokesman said: "The woman has been left devastated at the loss of her rings and is desperate to have them returned to her as soon as possible.

"Anyone who comes into possession of the rings is asked to hand them in to their local police station.

"We would also ask that anyone who can assist with our enquiries into this theft contacts police immediately."

Anyone with information can contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
