Found this and don’t know what to do

I found my ex’s gold HS graduation ring, she gave it to me as a commitment ring. It’s been years since I’ve seen her and we are not in touch, but I could probably find her via the Internet. She is married now and so am I.
My question is do I try to get it back to her or just sell it? I’m sure she has/had things of mine that I’ll never see again.
If I were to try and get it back to her, I’d just use regular mail with no note or return address and just hope it gets there.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I returned a bunch of stuff to my abusive ex with with the teeny weeny, because I feel it was the right thing to do. Paid a good chunk of change to send the stuff back to his sorry ass via UPS. I did it, because it's what I would want someone else to do for me. Honestly, I feel better about myself, and like to think that I was sowing some good Karma for myself.

    Just try to make sure you have the right address to send the ring back to before you attempt to send it. Since it's been so long I do think you ought to leave a letter asking the receiver to send it back if it isn't her, because you want to return back to her specifically. It might sound corny, but doing the right thing is rewarding.

    I was walking down the street when I living with my relatives in Texas, and I saw a wallet on the ground. I picked up the wallet, looked at the driver's license and saw that the owner lived right nearby so I went up to his door, rang the bell and said, "you dropped your wallet". He was so grateful, and I left feeling so good! It was a totally worth it, and now I have a wonderful memory to share with people about doing the right thing.

    Here's a note to any scumbag opportunistic people, I NEVER checked to see if there was any cash in the wallet, because it wasn't my business as it wasn't my wallet.

  • I'd return it if you can find her address. I found some crap from my ex and just dropped it in the mail cause thought she might want it. Never heard anything back from her(not that I wanted to) but felt good just returning something she might potentially want. My good deed for the year I guess

    • Was it years after you’d last seen her and was is something kind of valuable? I don’t want to send it registered mail, because I don’t want her to know where I live these days.

      • It was a couple of years. Like some of her old Army stuff I thought she might want. So it cost a few bucks but felt like,I don't know, closing a chapter or something like that.

  • Who the hell would buy a hs graduation ring lol. It's not like a college ring from MIT or the Citadel. Hit her up on fb and ask if the wants it back or just mail it to her if you have a current address. I had to trade a ring I bought an ex for valentine' s to get my nespresso coffee maker back. Maybe she has something of yours you want and can barter.

    • It was a thing in my HS and she was in color guard and all those girls got one. I didn’t buy one and was saving room/money for my college ring which I never bought either. This damn thing is like an anchor now.
      I’m going to look her up on the internet and just mail it thru the post office. If it makes it fine, if not, I tried and it’s gone.
      The only thing she has of mine that I cared about was my virginity. If she has something else, I hope she puts it under her pillow as her husband pounds that thing I got to first. :)

      • I meant secondhand, who would you sell it to.

        • It’s 14k gold with a semiprecious stone. So a pawn broker or any jewelry store that buys gold - and most of them do.
          They melt it down for the gold value.

  • I think it would be nice if you returned it. If you can find her address, she could probably find yours. It's not hard, so I wouldn't worry about that aspect of it.

  • It's been years, if she gave a crap she'd have asked. I'd throw it out or sell it.
