BALTIMORE, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- A receptionist for the Baltimore Ravens said her boyfriend lost her Super Bowl ring in the Chesapeake Bay.

Toni Lekas, one of many team employees to receive a ring when the Ravens won the Super Bowl early this year, said her boyfriend, Chuck Lykes, was wearing the ring at a party on a boat in August and it came off his finger and plunged into the water when he grabbed a rope to help dock the boat, The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday.

Lekas told The Caw blog at baltimoreravens.com her boyfriend searched the water for the ring, but was unable to find it.

"I never cried," Lekas said. "I was too mad to cry."

However, Lekas said the ring was insured and she was relieved when team officials were able to convince the NFL to approve the creation of a replacement.

Lekas said the new ring will not be put in any dangerous situations.

"Now it's going in a safety deposit box," Lekas said. "I'm not going to keep it at home; it's just too stressful."
