A Gabriel & Co. Story: The Lost Engagement Ring

Losing an engagement ring is every woman in love's nightmare. Sadly, for Ciara, it became her reality. "I went running one night and when I got home I look down and realized I had lost my rings," she said, "Me and my husband, who recently proposed after returning home from a nine month deployment in Afghanistan, looked everywhere.

I have never prayed over a material object as I did during these two days, because the ring was more than that. It had come from my soulmate. I was heart broken and devastated."  

Spent and exhausted, Ciara posted on every yard-sale website in Clarksville. Her message was simple. 

"If there are any good people left in this world, my wedding bands & engagement ring were lost last weekend...Please, please be a good soul and turn it in. I'm hoping it turns up. My husband and I have looked for 2 days now." Ciara also emailed all the local news websites, lost / found pages and soon had hundreds of people sharing her story across social media. 

That same day, a woman in Clarksville found a ring in a parking lot.  Naturally, she didn't know to whom it belonged but she noticed two engravings inside the ring. The first said "Gabriel & Co."

The second engraving was a serial number.  EVERY GABRIEL & CO. ENGAGEMENT RING HAS A UNIQUE SERIAL NUMBER.  NO TWO RINGS ARE ALIKE.
