The man who lost his wedding ring at the age of 18 to a thief told ABC News he would have preferred to be buried with his missing ring.
The man said he wanted a ring that had been taken off and buried in a cemetery with his family, but was disappointed when he couldn’t find one.
He said he was disappointed he didn’t get to see his ring when it was taken.
He is one of several people who have contacted the ABC about missing or stolen jewellery in recent weeks.
He was told by the Metropolitan Police it was an unusual occurrence.
“They didn’t really explain why it was missing, or why it wasn’t returned, and I don’t know why they didn’t find it,” he said.
“I don’t understand why there are people out there who are not safe and that they are still missing and that we need to look at ways to help.”
Mr Rizzo said he has been looking for the ring for four years.
He hopes to be able to find it by next week, but will still be waiting for his engagement ring to be returned.
“My fiancee and I are planning on doing some more weddings this year, and that’s just to try and get that ring back and see if it can be put on the registry,” he told ABC radio.
“We’re not looking for money, we just want to make sure that we have that ring that we lost.”
