Couple loses $14k wedding ring at Dave and Busters

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A couple stopped in Albuquerque for a night of fun at Dave and Busters, but lost something very important to them — a $14,000 wedding ring. Now they’re hoping to get it back.

“You can’t replace what that ring means, unifies, signifies and just how it identifies us,” said Josh Green.

It started Wednesday night when Josh and Jillian Green stopped by the Dave and Busters in Uptown to take a break from their road trip from Reno to Mississippi.

Jillian took off her ring and placed it by the Kung Fu Panda machine as the couple tried their luck at their favorite game. After three or four tries, they moved on.

“I went right behind it to the Jurassic Park game, and we were playing that for 20 minutes and I realized I didn’t have my ring on,” said Jillian Green.

By the time she realized her ring was missing, it was too late.

“Ten feet behind it is the Kung Fu Panda game, and so we went back there and it was gone,” she said.

Jillian, who is in the Air Force, and her husband, say the ring cannot be replaced.

“The value of the ring, money-wise, means nothing to the value of the ring what it means to us, and what it signifies, unifies for us,” said Josh.

Dave and Busters would not release the security video to KRQE News 13 or the couple. They said the manager told them the video was too blurry, but Jillian and Josh say they do not blame the restaurant and they just hope someone will return the ring.

“My ring, that I have, signifies everything of her. Her ring that she had, signifies everything of me and together it created our spectrum, our world.”

The couple is offering a $500 reward for anyone who can help locate the ring. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
