Port Richmond Woman Finds Lost Engagement Ring Through Social Media
The holiday giving spirit seems to have spilled over into the new year in Philadelphia this week. According to NBC10, a stranger delivered a lost engagement ring back to its owner, Judy Kluska of Port Richmond, through social media.
Kluska was at the Cherry Hill Mall shopping on New Year’s Day when she noticed that her 33-year-old engagement ring was no longer safely on her finger.
“I was in a couple different stores returning things and when I was leaving, it was probably around 4 o’clock in the afternoon, I realized my ring was missing,” Kluska told NBC10.
After a return trip to the mall to search for the ring came up short. Kluska’s son, Jason, took to social media and added a picture of the missing ring.
After 11,000 shares on the Internet a man, John Kaiser, noticed the picture of the ring resembled one that his finance found on the floor earlier. Coincidentally, Kaiser lives just six blocks away from Kluska. He reached out on Facebook with a message.
“Within 24 hours, John had inboxed me on Facebook and said he found my mother’s ring,” Jason Kluska said.
Jason told his mom he had the ring with a humorous gesture.
“It was actually my sister Michelle’s idea that I get down on my knee and say, ‘Would you be my mother?'” Jason Kluska told NBC10.
Judy Kluska was in shock when she found out her son had the ring.
“He said, ‘I’ve got your ring,'” she recalled. “I honestly can’t believe it. I’m just so happy to have it back. I really never thought that I would see it again.”
Jason Kluska thanked Kaiser for his help and gave him and his family $1000.
“It feels great,” Kaiser said. “It’s kind of unbelievable. Small world.”
