AN Exmouth man is offering a reward to trace his fianc�e's engagement ring which was stolen just weeks after he slipped it on to her finger.
The 41-year-old man hopes the cash reward will secure the return of the much-loved ring - which he designed for his future bride.
Because the ring holds sentimental value, the couple vowed to hand over the cash and ask 'no questions' once it is returned.
The groom-to-be, of Rosebery Road, who does not want to be named said: "As the days go by, we are doing anything we can to get it back."

Just weeks after he presented his 45-year-old care worker fianc�e with the 18-carat white gold, half-carat diamond ring, it was stolen when a brazen burglar walked in the front door of the couple's home and stole the woman's handbag from the foot of the stairs.
Unable to wear her ring to work, the mum-of-two had taken it off and placed it inside the box for safekeeping.
