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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
