$98,000 ring returned without note


UPI News Service, 08/17/2006 

William Kaper Jr. got back his $98,000 ring sans a note but the Chicago-area lawyer isn't upset as he'd been demanding it from his former fiancee since 2002.

The 65-year-old Kaper filed a lawsuit a week ago for the return of the 5-carat diamond engagement ring. A courier dropped it off Tuesday at Kaper's law office in the original box but without a note, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Kaper says he gave the ring to his former wife of 25 years with remarriage in mind, says the report. But Kaper said the condition was if the plan didn't work out, she would return the ring.

He said by 2002, it became clear a remarriage wouldn't work and asked for the ring's return which, he said, she refused. The issue finally led to the lawsuit, which, Kaper now says, he will withdraw.

About the ring's return, Kaper was quoted as saying, she "handled herself in an elegant manner."

Kaper plans to take advantage of the publicity by auctioning off the ring at Sotheby's in December and use the proceeds for the couple's grandson's education.
