‘That is beautiful, man.’ Actor Jon Cryer thrilled to get his wedding ring back thanks to Vancouver jewelry sleuth

Standing on Vancouver’s iconic seawall, Vancouver’s iconic rain hammering down as the dark closed in, Jon Cryer was despondent.

On Friday night, the American actor had been walking to meet some castmates — he’s currently in B.C. because he’s playing Lex Luthor in the Supergirl TV series — when he pulled a hand out of his pocket and heard a tiny “ping,” he wrote in a Twitter thread that has since been shared by thousands. He walked a few more steps before he realized what had happened.

His wedding ring? Gone.

Cryer, probably best known for co-starring on Two and a Half Men, for which he won two Primetime Emmys, says he turned on the flashlight on his phone and began an ad hoc grid search of the pavement and soggy strip of grass, all the while wondering if it was possible the ring rolled right into the ocean.

Actor Jon Cryer finds lost wedding ring thanks to Vancouver jewelry sleuth

Vancouver’s Chris Turner says his passion for helping people recover lost jewlery is all about the smiles.

The star, best known for his role in the sitcom Two and a Half Men, is in Vancouver filming another project and in a lengthy Twitter post that’s been shared by thousands of others, he said he lost his wedding ring while out walking along the seawall under the Cambie Street bridge Friday night near Cooper’s Park.

Cryer, who was married in 2007, said he searched online for a service that could help him find the ring and found Turner’s TheRingFinders.com, a global directory

Collaborating artist and model say they will no longer work with Vancouver fashion designer

An Indigenous artist who has collaborated with Vancouver fashion designer Chloë Angus says he will no longer work with her in response to concerns about cultural appropriation and misleading marketing.

Kwakwaka’wakw artist Steve Smith said on Monday that he is retracting an earlier statement of support for Angus and cutting off his professional relationship with Chloë Angus Design.

He joins Linnea Dick, who has modelled for Angus’s catalogues and runway shows, in reconsidering the collaboration.

Dick, an orator and writer of Kwakwaka’wakw, Nisga’a and Tsimshian descent, published an open letter this weekend that says she feels “betrayed, misled, and deceived” by the designer.

“It’s no longer good enough for allies to provide opportunities for Indigenous people while still holding the strings behind the scenes, but rather essential now to empower Indigenous communities to create these opportunities and collaborations on their own terms,” Dick writes.

“This can’t happen with non-Indigenous ‘allies’
