Recovered wedding ring question
 
Whenever finding a ring with a date engraving, I will go to great lengths to research marriage records in the state where I found it. BUT !!
I don't not proceed to check other states in the U.S. because of the huge amount of time it takes just for a single state. I would like to know to what extent do you do to research lost rings that you find.

And what methods do you use as far as data bases that can assist you in this effort? is there any kind of a national registry that jewelers use?

If you have people who vacation in your state how would you find an owner unless it was engraved with a full name... I had that in a school ring I returned... I don't go out of my way to return stuff...

In the case of newer rings with wedding dates and initials, I was never been able to track the owner down.

I was successful in one class ring return where her name was etched in the ring,one where there was never a find and one currently posted on the school's alumni page where it will be for a year. If no hits then I'll put it in the pile.
