When a teenaged Chris Moody lost her mother’s ring more than 30 years ago, she never could have imagined how she would find it again.
Recently, Moody went shopping at Value Village in Prince Albert and something caught her eye at the jewelry counter.
After asking to take a closer look, she was surprised to learn it was the ring she lost.
“I burst into tears and asked if there was someone I could talk to about it and (the store clerk) called over one of the other girls and I was telling them all about how I lost the ring and how my mom’s initials are W.E. and it was her ring,” Moody said.
The price on the ring was $80 but after Moody’s reaction, she received a much better deal.
“These two girls said they didn’t care if they got in trouble, they didn’t care if they lost their jobs. But they said they had to give me my ring back and it was such an incredible act of kindness,” Moody said.
She added she will forever be grateful to employees Robyn and Jessica.
“It’s not something that (the girls) do, and not something they would probably do again, but they did that day and it was such a kind thing to do,” she said.
The ring was actually a gift from Moody’s grandfather to Moody’s mother, but Moody liked to borrow it. She was no more than 17 when she lost the ring while out roller skating one night.
Unfortunately, Moody cannot share the amazing discovery with her mother.
“She’s been gone for over 25 years, so it brought her a little bit closer,” Moody said.
