If we’re being honest, not many of us would go through the trouble of finding the owner of a valuable we found by chance. Pieces of jewelry can fetch quite a pretty penny, and what are the chances of finding the object’s owner?

But when Billy Buring found a class ring that wasn’t his under the seat of his 1968 Chevy Camaro, he knew that someone really needed this ring back. He started searching for clues about the owner.

The ring was from 1972, and he traced it back to Edmond Memorial High School. Initials engraved inside the ring read: “DML.”

He started searching for students with those initials from that graduating class, but his research came up short. That’s when he contacted police in Edmond, Oklahoma.

The department posted a photo of the ring on social media, and it didn’t take long for the photo to reach someone related to the ring’s owner. Delone Marie Lynch’s son was contacted, and he broke the news to his mom: After 42 years, her class ring was coming home.

The mom knew she hadn’t seen the ring in decades and had no idea where she had lost it. But Billy’ Camaro once had belonged to her, and she finally unraveled the mystery behind her ring’s disappearance!

Please SHARE if you love your class ring and keep it safe at all times!
