Losing a priced possession is heartbreaking. It is even worse if it was with you for the past 36 years. That’s what happened to the owner of a bakery shop in Leavenworth, Kansas. She lost a diamond worth $4000 from her wedding ring while making cookies and is still looking for it, per KMBC 9. Dawn “Sis” Monroe feels it might have fallen onto the dough she made on April 5, Friday.

"I looked down at my hand, and the center diamond is gone," said Monroe, the owner of Sis' Sweets Cookies and Cafe. The bakery staff claimed they used up to 119,000 rubber gloves last year and never had such an experience. The owner spoke about what happened after she lost the diamond. "We kinda went back to the kitchen and looked around," she said. It was her wedding ring and had been with her for nearly four decades. Her husband selected it for her and she lost the main diamond on it.

Unfortunately, they could not find the diamond anywhere. "I was crying, and all he could say was, 'You still have me,' so that made it all better," Monroe said. She assumed the diamond fell into the dough when rolling and making cookies. The ring had been there on her hand every day for about 36 years. After searching everywhere, they concluded it might be in the chocolate chip, sugar or peanut butter cookies.

To ensure the customers do not bite into the diamond, the bakery issued a warning asking the customers to be careful while having a cookie. "Mainly cause I didn't want anybody to break a tooth," Monroe said. She wrote on the bakery's Facebook page, "Bonus if you buy cookies today. My diamond is missing. It is not required of me to wear gloves when I bake. My heart is beyond broken. If you happened to find it, I would forever be in debt if you would return it. It's a marquis cut. I'm sorry if you find it, but I don't take my ring off for anything."


People on social media were also empathizing with Monroe. Jane Hanley commented, "I know how heartbreaking losing a precious piece is! I pray someone has the kindness and respect to return the diamond!" Roxie Summers wrote, "Eating your cookies and if we find it I will rejoice and get it to you!! We love you!!" Kari Anderson-Ernzen expressed, "I would be tearing up cookies!! Dawn this breaks my heart!! I pray someone will find it!!" Shelley Scott-Welton shared, "I hope you find it (at home). I lost the stone out of my class ring many years ago while I was waiting tables. Good luck."


Monroe said she wanted to replace the diamond if not found because the ring was too dear for her to take it out from her finger. It has been about 10 days and she hasn't found the ring yet. She posted on her Facebook page, "I want to reassure all of you that my diamond has not been found. I lost it last Friday. It could have only been in the batter that day and that day ONLY. We make our cookies every day from scratch. This story has gone viral nationwide and the story has changed I'm letting you know the facts that it cannot be in any dough now. I have no control over the media and what they are putting out there."
