    ring returned

    I found this ring this past fall, it is 10K gold and black onyx. I contacted the owners of the house and also the previous owners, neither had a clue as to whom it belonged to. I then started thinking of who rented the place in the summer and then realized a friends brother whose last name begins with R did alot of work on the house. He has since passed away, but I asked his brother if he had had a ring like that, he thought so but wasn;t sure. I then talked to a friend of his brothers who knew him well and he said he definitely had a ring like that and had lost it while working at the house I found it at.( I hadn;t told him where I found it). I thus returned it to my friend who was grateful to have a ring of his now passed brother.

    Whatever it is, it is valuable. If nothing else for the lesson learned or simply the experience of having been there.

    Good for you, Mainedigger. I haven't had the privilege to return a ring to its' owner yet, but I know after reading your story and many other like it, that it will be a most rewarding experience.

    Dick...I;ve been able to return a few rings and some WWII medals to the owners and owners family and that in itself is more rewarding than actually finding the item. I still have an old wedding band and a high school ring that I am trying to locate who owned them, to get them back to the owner or their family, I enjoy the challenge of the research of trying to locate someone from an engraved date or initials. Besides the enjoyment I get out of seeing the expressions and happiness of someone getting a lost item, it also promotes good will for our hobby and may make more people willing to grant permission to hunt their property, which is good for us all.
