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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
