EDMONTON — A man who plays Santa Claus says he’s disheartened after someone swiped his wife’s wedding ring at a charity Christmas party.

EDMONTON — A man who plays Santa Claus says he’s disheartened after someone swiped his wife’s wedding ring at a charity Christmas party.

Cam Fraser has been Jolly Old St. Nick at the Uncles and Aunts at Large Christmas party for the past 25 years.

He says he had his wife’s wedding ring in his pocket when he changed into his Santa costume on Dec. 6.

The ring was in a small bag from Independent Jewellers, and he said he was about to take the damaged ring there for repairs.

After Fraser finished entertaining the Uncles and Aunts and Large crowd — a mentoring program similar to Big Brothers and Big Sisters — he changed and headed straight for the jewelry store.

But when he reached into his pocket, the ring was gone.

“I was in denial … I replayed everything in my head.”

But the ring never turned up.

Now the jewelry store is working with the couple to try and get the ring back.

An ad with the store’s phone number was posted on Kijiji online classifieds Dec. 15.

The ring bag had the store’s logo on it, so hopes are someone will call it in.

The couple hasn9t reported the loss to police.

Fraser said he’s willing to pay a reward to get the ring back.

“It’s not a $4,000 ring or anything,” said Fraser. “The design of the ring, it was just very unique. It had meaning.”

The gold and white gold ring is set with five diamonds surrounded by five smaller diamonds.

One smaller rock is missing. The diamonds are set in gold Xs.
