OKLAHOMA CITY -- A woman who lost her $15,000 wedding ring has Facebook to thank for returning it to her.
“I never thought I’d see it on my finger ever again,” the ring’s owner Alycea Chandler told KFOR.
Chandler unknowingly left the the family heirloom behind at Club One15 in Oklahoma City's Bricktown neighborhood. But she didn't realize it until her husband noticed.
"I was in shock," she said.
Chandler posted a photo of the ring to Facebook, hoping that someone might have found it. The post was shared more than 2,500 times in multiple states, and reportedly even shared in the UK.
One of the people who saw the ring in his Facebook newsfeed was ClubOne15's general manager Adam Coury. One of his employees had found the ring on the floor over the weekend, and Coury had put it in a safe until he could find the owner.
“I got a message from this lady…she said hey, I heard you may have a ring,” Coury told KFOR.
The ring was returned to Chandler Monday, and for her it’s truly a ring that can not be replaced.
“I have something to pass on to my son someday, from his grandfather that he never got to meet,” said Chandler. “That means the world to us.”
Chandler tells KFOR she’s now considering leaving the ring at home in her own safe.
