    Why do you want to know what it is worth?

    Does it look like a wedding/engagement ring?
    I would never be able to cash it in.. I would feel horrible for the person who lost it (them being a dummy or not :o)

    Was this ring attached to a finger in the snow bank? If so, you should at least call that in. Don't mention the ring though :bigup:

    Looks like an engagement ring.
    Chances are I won't be able to find out who owns it. I'll keep an eye out for lost ads though over the next week. It was in a snow bank from a plow at the end of a large parking lot. So who knows how long it has been there.

    post a pic.


    you might be better off selling the ring to a jeweler and selling the rock on ebay. Loose stones catch a mint on Ebay for the right cut/color/clarity.

    I'd never be able to keep it either.

    My Father metal detects and he has hundreds of rings from over the years and he always tried to help people find rings they've lost.

    Free diamond rings from Daddy ftw.

    Well, being that most people insure their valuables... I don't know why one should feel bad in this situation. I do somewhat feel bad who place sentimental value on material possessions, but that has little to do with this.

    Who would not attach emotions to a ring that someone asked you to marry you with?

    An emotional retard.

    It's a fucking ring. The diamond and gold didn't ask you to marry you, did it?

    Oh come on, Pat..
    The bling bling says it all :lol:

    Seriously though.. it wouldn't be the end of the world, but I would certinaly be quite upset if I lost something of value like that. Maybe I'm the minority on that, but its how I feel :shrug:

    I would feel bad just because I would presume that the ring-giver would be pissed.
