LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — They could have been lost forever, long-forgotten mementos from home perhaps worn on a finger or carried in a pocket for good luck.
Somehow, the two 1970s-era high school rings found their way into Vietnam's jewelry market. Both were purchased from jewelry merchants there, and now both are waiting in Kentucky for their owners.
One is a 1970 Montgomery County High School ring that a U.S. contractor from Pennsylvania found in Thai Binh City last year. The other is a 1972 ring from a former Catholic high school Washington, D.C.
They have no identifying marks like initials.
Despite extensive Internet searches, telephone calls, even Facebook postings, the rings remain mysteries.
