BELMAR, NJ — It’s been a month since Karen Farrell found what appears to be an engagement ring on the Belmar beach. And although it’s a longshot, she still hopes to find the person who lost it.

Farrell came to Belmar on Sunday, July 7 — the last day of an extended Fourth of July weekend — and took a spot along the oceanfront between Second and Third Avenues, where she discovered the ring,

Upon returning home, the Jackson resident contacted TAPinto Stafford-Long Beach Island, asking for the statewide news network to get the word out about her find — made of white gold with no engravings or identifiable markings. The ring does have a unique contemporary style and diamond cut, which would be known to the rightful owner.

“I do not want anything from this other than getting the ring back to the young lady who lost it. She must be devastated (unless of course she whipped it at her fiance’s head),” Farrell wrote.

Since then, the Belmar beachfront management and police department have been contacted to see if either had any reports of a lost ring — and neither did.
