    Designer platinum and diamond ring returned, Reward Identical ring in my size

    Hit 3 beaches today and got 1 small silver ring and a few coins, Decided to try 1 more beach before giving up. Into the water I go only got 3 pennies and junk, hit the dry sand and half way down the beach at 6" this beauty shows itself.


    My first plat for the year!!!

    I got on the internet to look up Michael B. It is inscribed inside the ring and I believed it to be the maker. I was correct!
    I e-mailed a retail jeweler that sells his rings and asked for a quote on the ring , saying I had seen one and was interested in a possable purchase. I also called a major retailer in Chicago to ask the same question.

    First call was from the New York jeweler. Said the ring has 1.2 ct of diamonds, 5 mm wide, pt 900. Retail is 8,000.00 but they could special order one for 6,600.00

    Then the Chicago jeweler called said retail is 10,600.00 and they could order one for 8,600.00 plus tax so about 9,400.00. LOL

    I thanked each of them very much and said it was a little above my price range. Yea more like WAY ABOVE!!!!

    Thanks for all the complements. That is a once in a life time find.

    Update on designer plat ring found last month...RETURNED!

    As i said in a previous post, I called the designer to see if it was possable to find the owner. They said no, so I asked about sizing the ring for myself. They said I would have to send it to them through a local jewler that they deal with.
    Well last thursday I took the ring in to the jewler.
    This Friday I got a call from the jewler here in chicago. Telling me that between the time I called the designer and sent the ring in the designer figured out who's ring it was. Turns out it was the designers son's ring who is going to school here in Chicago, The ring was a present from the designer to his son for recieving his Bachelor degree.
    The designer deciced since I tried to return the ring and then wanted to size it for myself, as a token of his appreciation he will make me a ring Identical to the one I found and returned, Platinum and diamonds. Retail 10.500.00
    Doing the right thing may not be easy and not allways profitable but sometimes paybacks are nice!!

    Don't you love a happy ending.
    I'll post a pic of the ring when he presents it to me.

    Hi Ron!

    Great story! It was nice of you to try to find the owner and it was nice of the designer to actually make you a ring!

    Platinum Designer ring returned, UPDATE!

    Went down to the jeweler today and picked up my new ring. It is beautiful.





    For those that didn't see my earlier post. In Aug I found a designer ring , Men's platinem band with 100 diamonds. Called the designer and found out it was his son's ring. Returned it and the designer made me an identical ring as a reward. The jeweler is arranging a meeting with the man that lost the ring, he will have a reporter there for an article for the press.
    Here is the ring as found in Aug.

    Thanks for all the great comments over the last few months.
