Sarah Chorne went to Kohl’s looking for a good deal, but didn’t know she’d be getting two items for the price of one on a recent holiday shopping trip.
An old ring was stuck inside a pair of men’s gloves she purchased Sunday night from a Kohl’s store in Oceanside, she said. Chorne is now looking to give it back to the owner, and went to Facebook for help. Her Sunday Facebook post about the incident racked up more than 2,800 shares by Thursday evening , though no one has come forward yet.
“I felt really bad someone had lost their ring,” Chorne said earlier this week. “I posted on Facebook as a long shot to see if I could find them.”
Chorne, 23, of Baldwin, said she went out for some holiday shopping Sunday, and when she got home, she had her father try on the Dockers gloves she had bought for a male family member.
“He said he felt something in there and then he pulled out a ring,” she said.
The ring looked older, more like a “family heirloom,” so she doesn’t believe that it was misplaced store merchandise, she said. It appeared to belong to a woman and had stones on it, though Chorne said she doesn’t want to give a too detailed a description so she can identify the ring’s true owner.
After finding it, she immediately placed a call to the store, but no one had reported losing a ring, Chorne said.
A national spokeswoman for Kohl’s said the company’s jewelry buyers did not recognize the ring as a product in the company’s catalog of merchandise when presented with a photo.
Despite the number of times the Facebook post has been shared and more than 100 comments offering support, Chorne said she hasn’t heard from anyone who has been able to describe the ring she has. Still, she is hopeful the attention on Facebook will bring the right person forward.
“I’ve gotten a lot of Facebook messages from people asking about it,” she said.
