Racquel Cloutier thought it would be a good idea to hide her $23,000 diamond wedding ring ina plain watch box so that her 2-year-old twins wouldn't find it while she was away at the hospital delivering her fifth baby.

Her husband Eric wanted to keep the other kids occupied, so he decided to have a yard sale -- and accidentally put the watch box (with the extravagent ring inside!) on display for $10. Reportedly, a blonde woman purchased it.

The couple is hoping that she hears the story and returns it -- they're trying to stay optimistic!
