AN engagement ring and a Tiffany ring were stolen from a house in Salisbury on Friday.

The theft of a silver Tiffany twisted ring and an emerald cut diamond, set in a platinum mount, took place at about 6:30pm in Radnor Road.

An unknown man reportedly entered the rear garden of the property and asked the victim if they would like their driveway repaired. The victim declined and the man left the premises.

When the victim re-entered their property, they discovered the two rings were missing from a small bowl on the windowsill. It is suspected the unknown man reached through an open window to take them.

The man is reported to be in his late 50s, white, about 5ft 8in tall, of medium build with sandy-grey, short, messy hair, and a ‘wonky eye’. He was wearing a fluorescent jacket and spoke with an Irish accent.

Both rings have significant sentimental value to the victim, and the police are keen to trace and return them.
