OKLAHOMA CITY – A woman lost her wedding ring while out dancing at a club. Alycea Chandler was anxious to get the family heirloom back.  So, she took to Facebook to crowd-source the search.  The results were astounding.

“I never thought I’d see it on my finger ever again,” the ring’s owner, Alycea Chandler, told KFOR-TV.

Chandler was out dancing at Club One15 in Bricktown on a Friday night.  She didn't notice the ring was gone until the next morning.

“It was on my hand,” said Chandler. “I don’t know if it happened when I was washing my hand in the restroom, or taking money out of my pocket…I have no idea.”

So, she wrote a Facebook post to help find the lost ring.  The post was shared more than 2,500 times.  People in nearby states and even the United Kingdom saw the post. Somewhere along the way it ended up in the Facebook feed of the General Manager of Club One15.

He says a worker found the jewelry on the ground and followed their standard procedure.  He locked it in a safe at the club.

The ring was returned to Chandler on Monday.  Alycea tells KFOR-TV that the ring is worth at least $15,000.  She is considering leaving it at home in her own safe.
