Lost class ring in Wrightsville Beach surf turns up a month later

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (THE WASHINGTON POST) -- In late June, Brian Neumann, a 22-year-old from Bethesda, was throwing a football in the surf at Wrightsville Beach, N.C., when he watched in horror as his Virginia Tech class ring slipped from his finger and tumbled into the Atlantic.

“It was like slow motion: falling into the water, sinking to the bottom,” he said. “It was so bad.”

Brian dived into the waist-deep water after the ring — thick, sculptural gold, set with a ruby-colored stone — but that sucker was sleeping with the fishes.

Then a month later, he got an e-mail from Shirley Fleet. Shirley works in Tech’s alumni office. A woman named Judy Mullins had stepped on a class ring in the surf. Her father-in-law, Bill Mullins, brought it along to Blacksburg, Va., on a business trip.

Nice

That was an extremely nice thing for the people to get the ring back to the owner; many would have sold it and got a fair amount of money. Last time I checked gold was around $1,800 dollars an ounce. It is good to see news like the guy getting his ring back.
