Hillsborough detectives seek owner of 1948 class ring

Hillsborough County detectives want to reunite a class ring from 1948, that bears the name “Gloria,” with its owner.

The ring was recovered in January from a Hillsborough pawn shop as part of a burglary investigation.

There is no school name on the gold ring that has a plain onyx stone. The ring has the letter “N” on the front below the stone. One one side there is an image of a sailing ship, and on the other is the year, 1948.

Inside the ring there are engravings of a first name, “Gloria,” and a middle initial and last name.

The ring was part of property taken during a series of burglaries through out Hillsborough County and Tampa, according to Detective Chris Fisher.

Victims of the burglaries have reclaimed some of the property, but no one has claimed the ring, he said. The sheriff is putting out the word because of its sentimental value.

Anyone who can provide the middle initial, last name and prove some connection to the year is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (813) 247-8200 to claim the ring.
