    Sorry for your dilemma. On another note, my wife says that you need a manicure.

    I agree with scubadetector, enough time has passed that this ring has been given up for lost, at her age would probably not be worn and with the damage if even kept, would be tossed in a drawer. It might just end up with other scrap gold and in her check but that is my opinion. You are more likely holding the other person's ring and again, with the amount of time...Long forgotten.

    Well, one deciding factor could be the size of the ring. Sort of like Cinderella. lol
    Good luck with the outcome.

    If she was lying, why wouldn't she have just said, yes it is mine, and skipped the rest of the story. Obviously it means something to her. Go ahead and send her the ring and ask her to send it back to you, if it is not hers and she can not locate the owner. Most people are honest

    I would make her identify the ring before I sent it to her Tommy. Ask her what metal it was made of, what type and color was the stone, was there a sports or band/choir emblem on it. If its hers, she should be able to identify it easily. If not, then you can look for the other person if you care to. She could just as easily go scrap it like you could.

    the local library may have the year books and you can research it there
    but have to say as strange as the story is i think it is hers
    think about it this way if she said "omg i though i lost it at school" would you still think she was pulling a fast one
    she did not have to give you ton's of other info
    also i will bet she only thinks it was taken by her baby sitter...i could of been a family member who was their for a visit
    that would explain how it got back to her home town

    Check out the junior class annual for that graduating class. Maybe another person has the same initials and moved before their senior year.

    ^^^^^ This... If I'm reading this correctly it was you who contacted her ? Even if it actually belonged to the other person with those same initials it sounds like she really believes it's hers and it made her day to think it's coming back to her after all these years. If you keep it now you're a dick.. lol Sorry but you asked..

    I think the lady in California did indeed have her ring stolen from her but, not the ring you found in Michigan. I bet if you can locate the other person with the same initials, you'll also find she lost her class ring.
    I don't understand why if the lady you contacted knows there's another person with the same initials. Why didn't see just give you her name so you could try and contact her?

    if she was lying , she would have come up with a more logical excuse for it being there.
    This does not mean 100% it is hers, however at this point.
    If it may be hers and you don't want to cause Fighting if another shows up with a
    story also. I say give it to her.

    Don't , whatever you do, Get authorities involved.

    This will just take away from this being a Good Deed into a pain in the ass for
    at least 2 People.
    you & the woman you already talked to.

    look at the Facts :
    You called the school they located a person who matched the initials. You call this person you send pics of the ring she says it looks like hers..

    It has her Initials & it's the year she Graduated .
    Do you want to Screw her over, now that She knows this ?

    If somehow there is another & the school puts her in contact Later
    and an issue arises. You have the Contact Info to forward who has it.
    along with the story you were told.

    AMEN. What Trapperart said should be gospel. We all need to do what we feel is right. I have friends that respect my decision to return rings, I respect theirs to be pirates. As long as NOBODY tries to cram their views down anyone's throat this is how we get along. My thoughts immediately would be scrap. They haven['t missed it for years and it is broke, they would never know it was found.

    BUT, you do what you feel is right and don't look back. I have returned golkd rings and haven't even so much as to get a thank you. I returned a silver bracelet a guy was given when he was 16 from his parents in 1944 and got a letter with a 100.00 bill in it. It is how you feel about the situation. Do what you feel you should do and live your life. No matter what the outcome, you did what you believed was right and so be it.

    Now keep away from my gold in Michigan!
