Class rings are meant to be a treasured memento of high school days, but for two individuals those mementos vanished around 20 years ago.
Two class rings were recently turned over to the Turlock Journal and we are hoping to reunite them with their long lost owners.
Both rings are dated from the 1970s, but were found in the parking lot of the former Long’s store on Geer Road in Turlock sometime in the early to mid 90s. Jeanette Aja’s mother was the one to find them and they remained tucked away in a jewelry box until her passing.
“She didn’t know how to get them back to their owners, so she just held on to them,” Aja said.
Aja said she happened across the rings while going through some of her mother’s belongings.
“I don’t know how to find the owners either, but I thought the Journal might be able to help,” Aja said.
One is a man’s ring from the Turlock High Class of 1976 and the other is likely a woman’s ring from the Madera High School class of 1973. Both have blue stones. The woman’s has initials engraved on it.
Anyone who might have information about the owners of the rings is asked to contact reporter Sabra Stafford at 634-9141 ext. 2002 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
