The man and woman had been in Times Square late Friday night, and police say the man dropped the ring during the proposal to his girlfriend.
They asked for help, but police were initially unsuccessful at getting the ring out and the man and woman left without leaving their names or contact information.
The NYPD posted on social media. Police say the couple, who had returned to England, got in touch and the ring will get back to them.
