@Treejewel19:   I’m disgusted with that bride.  Did anyone at this breakfast call her on this?

I would locate the local police department and ask where the public lost and found is (sometimes it’s there, or sometimes it’s somewhere else).  I hate thieves and I equate someone who found something that isn’t their’s without making some concerted effort in locating the original owner a thief.

Yes I think I’d report it to the store, but wouldn’t trust walmart, so I’d leave them my number.

If i didn’t hear back I’d take it to a jewler to check if it was a diamond, maybe it wasn’t.

If it was I’d then take it to the police.

If it was still unclaimed after the alloted time then I’d take it, b/c what else would they do with it

IF it was I, I would do my damn-dest to find the rightful owner.

Store – Newspaper Ad – Police etc.

Lol, but then again I am an Older Bee…

And I’ve had seen the sh!t that MS KARMA can pull on people when she ain’t none to happy

To mess with Karma, is to ask for trouble

What goes around, as they say, is sure to come around

Guessing your PROUD Bride is too young to have realized this as of yet.

Sorry to say it… but sadly, she’ll learn…. the hard way.

I’d try to find the owner of course!

More than the retail value, that’s got to hold some sentimental value. You can’t replace that.

@Treejewel19:  I’d go out of my way to return it. I’d probably post a “found” notice somewhere without a photo, and return it if someone could describe it to show it was theirs (or better, show a photo). Either way I wouldn’t wear it, at least not until a ridiculous amount of time had expired (like a year after finding it).

Since I’ve returned stuff before, I’m pretty confident that’s what I would actually do.

Omg, I would absolutely go out of my way to try to return it! And I hope that someone would do the same for me!!!

@Treejewel19:  Omg!!! I’d do my very best to find the original owner!! I’d leave a note and my number at the Walmart, then go to the police.

That poor woman somewhere out there must be crying her eyes out :'( :'( The bride of the wedding you attended was very selfish and she should know better, being a bride herself. You (or someone else) should call her out in it.

@asianbarbie:  agreed with the leaving the number at walmart. I wouldn’t trust them at all to actually return the ring to the owner.

I would post an ad. However, people get super creepy on lost-and-found sections on places like craigslist…at least from my experience. 

Other than asking the police if anyone has filed a report… I think I would probably give up after a certain amount of time. 

I don’t think it’s something to brag about finding…

I feel bad saying this, but I would actually keep it. I’m so bad at identifying gems, the thought of it being a wedding ring wouldn’t even cross my mind (unless it was engraved of course). 

I’ve returned stuff and I don’t consider myself a dishonest person. I just know that in this particular situation, I’d probably be totally unaware of the ring’s worth.

@Treejewel19:  If I found a ring in a parking lot I’d leave my contact info. with the surrounding businesses and contact the police.

@NauticalDisaster:   In this case it was a solitaire engagement ring with a soldered wedding band –  pretty obvious that it’s a wedding set.  Why would you keep it instead of at least turning it into a lost and found?

@Treejewel19:   Also, if I were you, I’d contact the local police department myself and see if anyone has reported the rings missing or check your local Craigslist or something.
