Sara Lopez was both shocked and pleasantly surprised when she received a phone call that she had been waiting for.
The Miami resident was ecstatic to learn that a ring she had purchased from Jewlr.com had been found. Lopez lost the ring earlier this year while visiting Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, a beach in nearby Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Fellow Florida native Beth Andres, along with her daughter Samantha, was the one who discovered the ring. She had been visiting the beach on July 22 when they had stumbled upon the golden Double Baguette Bypass Ring that Lopez had gotten as a gift in April of last year.
Andres was determined to get the ring back to its rightful owner, so she posted the ring on her Facebook page, to see if she could find out who it belonged to. With a stroke of luck, a Facebook user who had made a purchase previously on our website, had suggested that the ring may be a design from Jewlr.com.
Andres took the initiative to recreate the ring’s design on the website and was then able to call in to provide more information about the ring. With the custom details Andres provided, Jewlr was able to determine that the ring belonged to Lopez.
“I can’t believe that someone found the ring, if only they knew how special this ring was to me”, Lopez said of the ring when we first reached out to her. “This ring has a lot of sentimental value to me and I have not been at peace since I lost it.”
As it turned out, the ring has an overwhelming amount of sentimental value to Lopez. It was made for her in honour of her late son, David Lopez, who tragically passed away in a motorcycle accident in December of 2014. Lopez ha lost the ring at the beach, which also happened to be her son’s favourite.
She described her relationship with her son as “very close,” which would explain why the ring meant so much to her.
Throughout the entire process, Andres was incredibly determined to return the ring to Lopez as she truly believed that it was special to its owner. She was right.
“I just wanted to get the ring back to whoever owned it because I imagine that it means a whole lot to someone and they’d be delighted to get it back,” she said.
