Pilgrim High School Ring - Warwick, Rhode Island

Pilgrim High School Class Ring, Warwick, Rhode Island, class of (?). Inside initials are JEJ and it is stamped 10k. The ring has a large facet-cut oval black stone with the words PILGRIM HIGH SCHOOL surrounding the stone. The stone is shiney like obsidian. There is a building engraved on one side of the ring and a winged emblem on the other side with the word 'WARWICK' engraved beneath the emblem. This ring was given to either myself or one of my roommates in trade for food and a place to stay in Los Angeles during the hippie era. I do not know the name of the young lady who gave up her class ring for herself and her boyfriend's room and board, so many people came and went in those days from every part of the country. However, I have recently come across this ring again and would like to see it returned to her. Contact

Gold Watch - Barbara Lind - 1952

While attending Brigham Young University in the 1980's I found a gold watch outside my student apartment. Not being able to find the owner, I tucked it away thinking I'd try again later. But I totally forgot about it. Sometime last year, I found it in a move I made and wanted to try to locate the owner. There is an inscription on back. It reads "-- Barbara Lind -- 1952". *Note - Name of School and Award Title have been withheld for identification purposes* Thinking that the surname of Lind was probably the surname of the mother of a student, I contacted the Adminstrative Office at Brigham Young Univ. asking if any of their records showed a student who had a mother with the maiden name of Lind. They did find one...but in Hong Kong. With my permission, they gave this person my phone number to contact me. Unfortunately, this Barbara Lind was not the correct one as she graduated two years after the date inscribed on the watch. It would make me very happy to return the watch to the owner or perhaps the owner's child. Debbie

View a picture of the ring. I would be very grateful for any advice or information that you could give me. Mr G Lambley - Darwen Lancashire England.

Vineland High School Ring - 1921

My sister has an old high school ring which was found with a medal detector by our uncle at the beach. The ring is a womans ring, its gold all over - no stone, just an emblem on the top, maybe the school mascot. The school it was from is Vineland High School & the only Vineland High we know is in New Jersey. My sister would like to see this ring get back to a family member if the owner is no longer around. If there is any way you can help it would mean a great deal to us! I know there's not much to go on, but any idea would help. There are initials on the ring - if you have a relative who graduated from Vineland High in 1921, please contact to identify the initials. Contact Cindy
