    A find of a lifetime.

    I found the most amazing wedding and engagement ring set at the beach last week. August 6th. Platinum. Appraisal for the engagement ring was $13,600. I guess the wedding band, also platinum another $2,000 Made many inquires, posted on Craigslist Lost and Found. No luck. I posted on Facebook a picture of only the wedding band and that it was inscribed and asked all my LI friends to share and to ask all there LI friends to do the same. 311 shares later with some anonymous postings to other sites the owner was located. ( in 5 hours). Quoted the exact inscription. She stated that she also lost an engagement ring, also platinum with a 1.3 carat diamond and was so very happy for just the wedding band. That's when I told her that I had them both. She will be reunited next week when she returns from vacation.http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local...FlowFB_NYBrand

    Terrific find on the wedding ring set and on your efforts to find the owner. There are many people that would have just sold them.I really admire and respect your honesty. W.T.G.

    Don't forget, sometimes karma is right in front of you , paying you back and comes in the form of a nice diamond in your scoop. It's good to give back when you can but sometimes karma is giving you back already and you have to take it. Balance! Balance!

    Wow that was a great find. And you are a great person to return them. Question. Where were they? On the beach or in the water?
