A customer found it with a metal detector at the beach.

Cary, NC, jeweler Steve Prutsman made a family happy when he returned a class ring that had been missing since 1974, the Raleigh News & Observer reports. The article says a Treasure Isle Jewelers customer used a metal detector to find the North Carolina State University ring on the beach, and after Prutsman cleaned it, he could read the original owner’s engraved name. Prutsman researched the man online and, based on an obituary, tracked down his next of kin. The man’s daughter cried when Prutsman called her about the ring, which she believes was lost on a 1974 vacation to Hatteras. Treasure Isle Jewelers returned the ring to the family for free. It could have fetched $800 to $1,000 at retail.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
