Rouhan, who was only married in November, had put the rings in a wallet inside her backpack, not being allowed to wear them at work.
"I'm a theatre nurse so you have to obviously not have any jewellery on," she said.
She has pleaded for whoever stole the rings to return them.
Police are investigating the theft, but Rouhan said there were no cameras in the areas nearby the changeroom.
