Husband Sells $23K Ring for $10

Here’s one way to vaporize your net worth: sell your wife’s $23,000 wedding ring in a garage sale for $10. That’s exactly what a California man did while his wife, Racquel Cloutier, was in the hospital after having her fifth child. She had hidden the ring in a watch box to keep it safe from the couple’s 2-year-old twins, and when her husband cleaned out items for the garage sale, he thought the box was empty. After some hesitation, a blonde woman bought the box. “I’m trying to remain optimistic but I don’t know anymore,” Cloutier said. “I would never, ever keep the ring if I found it … Clearly [it] was in the box by accident.” Her husband, not surprisingly, “feels terrible.”
