A New York City woman says she accidently left a bag in the trunk of a taxi containing $35,000 worth of jewelry.

Among the items was a $15,000 engagement ring she had designed herself.

Mariko Spigner told the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1E6K1aW ) she realized she had forgotten the bag as soon as the taxi pulled away from a friend's apartment Wednesday morning in Brooklyn's Sunset Park. But it was too late — the cab had sped off.

She says the missing items also included a $2,000 wedding ring, her green card and her Social Security card.

The 42-year-old Spigner is a Japanese citizen.

She filed a report with the Taxi and Limousine Commission, which is investigating. The bag hasn't been turned in yet.
