"It's not like there's a phone number engraved inside the ring where they could just call the person that lost it.." ~C.B.
A couple came in the store yesterday. They showed me a beautiful diamond wedding ring they had found walking on the beach on an out of state vacation. The ring held a diamond over one carat in size and I estimated the retail value at over $7,500! They found it back in October and have spent the last 4 months trying to locate the owner. They have reported it to the police department in the town they found it, and posted a "Found" notice on Craig's List in that vacation town. They watched newspaper listings in the "Lost and Found" section of the paper from that area. There is no way of knowing how long the ring has been buried in the sand on that beach, and no identifying markings that could link it to a person, time, or place. They did more hunting than most would, but not because they are more honest than others. Mostpeople want to give back a lost item to its rightful owner! They empathize with the person that lost it. They just don't know how to find that person! It's not like there's a phone number engraved inside the ring where they could just call the person that lost it...Oh Wait!...that's a GREAT IDEA! For a few extra dollars, you could have your phone number engraved inside your ring, hidden from view while you are wearing it, but easy to identify if someone were to find it!
Just think of the benefits of having your number engraved inside your valuable ring:
Lost Ring-Good Samaritan can easily contact you!
Stolen Ring-Police and Pawn Dealers alike could easily identify the rightful owner by your easy-to-spot telephone number engraved inside!
