A RING set with valuable stones that have been in a family for generations was stolen during a break-in in Leeds.
Ria Corey was out with her husband Scott and friends for lunch on Saturday when thieves smashed into their home on North Park Avenue in Roundhay.
They stole a white gold ring set with three sapphires that was given to Ria, 32, by her father. The stones had been passed down at least four generations of her family.
Two digital cameras, an iPod and an iPad were also taken.
Mrs Corey, who usually wears the ring but had had forgotten to put it on, said: “I’m devastated. They took the one thing I value more than anything.
“I just hope someone has an ounce of decency and realises what a loss it is to me and hands it back.”
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or anyone who is offered the ring for sale is asked to contact PC Matthew Driver in the priority crime team at Stainbeck Police Station via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
