    I went to a rental house to do a clean and check today and found a womans wedding ring in the bottom of the return boot and also an old Ted williams baseball card in bad shape. The home has 3 large central return grates in the floor, one of which is near the return drop. The ring is 18k gold with one large diamond and 4 smaller diamonds ( says 18k inside the band ). The house is not occupied now and previously had a gay guy living there. 10 years ago, it was purchased from the family of an old lady that passed away. Im going to take to a jeweler and see what its worth. The diamond is bigger than my wifes and I know what I paid for hers. No, Im not saying anything to the landlord and thats final! Man am I happy. Keep your eyes peeled you guys.

    You know, I had heard they were keeping Ted Williams chilled, so this is what they meant I guess.

    First off does anyone know if 18K is good gold? I thought like 24K was good stuff.

    Second, if someone had thought that they lost that ring in that house wouldn't your think they would have tore that return register apart!

    I am thinking that it is a glass imitation from an old time Cracker Jacks box. Either that or it has a curse on it by the old lady who died but is still looking for for her ring.

    There did I make your day??

    About 4 years ago my wife lost her wedding ring. I felt bad and bought her a new set for over 4 grand. After we moved out of that house I rented it out and ended up evicting them and they trashed the place. While I was cleaning it out I found her wedding set in the return. I let my daughter wear it home and show it to mommy. She about ****. But being that I was broke when we got married that old set was 500 bucks if that, so she still wears the new set.

    Keep that ring and don't tell anyone at work about it. Just family. And remember all the lousy crawl spaces and attics, etc that you had to endure before luck finally found you.

    Get it appraised on the quiet.
    typically rings are made of 14 to 18 karet as 24 karet is a little soft for the job and stones fall out.
    18 kt is good ring gold, just get the stone checked to see if its real too.
    and lucky you!
