    Default what would you do?

    i found a men's gold ring w/diamonds (all could be fake) a few months ago. i have posted found listings for it on craigslist and have received no replies. i've also searched lost listings and haven't found one with a matching description. I would like to take it to the coin/jewelry shop and see what they'll offer me for it, but what if i went and they thought i stole it or something?!?! what if the old man that lost it figured some thug stole it, when really he lost it in a parking lot. or maybe it was stolen and later dropped where i found it?! i just don't want to try to go sell it and then be in trouble for something i didn't do.
    most people have insurance on valuables anyway right?
    how long is something "lost and found" before it becomes the finder's property?

    thoughts?...

    Hmmm that is a tough one. But if you feel you have made all of the effort to find the owner that you could, you cannot possibly make it your life's mission to hold on to it forever to find the owner. What, should you notify the police and let them take it, bag it and put in in a basement where someone else will steal it? Maybe I watch too much TV. I think you should take it to a jeweler and find out what it is worth before you start worrying.

    did you put a ad in the local news paper? bo was found out in the county and brought to the local pound and i got him the next day. i posted and watched in the area stuff and no one ever posted of a lost yellow lab. i waited a month before i called him my own. i know a dog is different than jewelry but i would say about a month or so...

    Maybe even call the police department and ask. They might even hold onto it for a selected amount of time, then if it's not claimed...it might be returned to you.

    I'd get it appraised before I did
    anything with it. If its real SELL SELL SELL!!!

    I would google the laws in the state you are in... or even call the police department and ask about the laws. Then I would see how much it was worth...
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    I agree I would advertise in the local newspaper and make them describe it perfectly, to claim, if you get no response and you know you have done everything in your power, I would take it and see if it is even real, then it is yours to do with what you choose.

    I would have it appraised and then print off the lost and found ads you've posted on craigslist. If you have proof you've been trying to find the owner, no one can accuse you of stealing it.

    That is tough but I agree with everyone above try the paper then see what it is worth! Good luck!

    I would check to see if it's been stolen..if not, and you made an effort to to find the owner.. I would go get it appraised by a few people and sell it. I don't think you're obligated to pay for an ad in the paper - but I would think if it were sentimental someone would post they lost it in the paper. Check with the police dept re: stolen items and how long and what you need to do to legally keep it in your possession
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."
