‘Put a Ring on It’ – to go

An alleged customer at Kay Jewelers on Klumac Road reportedly absconded with three engagement rings and a wedding band on May 14 after a salesperson was showing the jewelry to the man.

Salisbury police said the slim man, somewhere between the ages of 50 and 65, wearing a white button-up shirt, black pants and a fedora, came in and asked to see several rings just after 3:30 p.m. The man then grabbed the items and ran. He got away with a one-carat round Leo diamond in white gold valued at $11,299, a white gold half-carat emerald-cut Leo diamond valued at $8,999, a gold quad-diamond and accompanying band valued at $8,500, for a total value of $28,798.
