Thanks to Facebook and one kind stranger, a Philadelphia woman found her engagement ring that she lost on New Year’s Day.

Judy Kluska was shopping at Cherry Hill Mall when her precious ring of 33 years went missing.

“I was in a couple different stores returning things and when I was leaving, it was probably around 4 o’clock in the afternoon, and I realized my ring was missing,” Kluska told NBC10.

After having no luck finding the jewelry when she retraced her steps, her son, Jason Kluska, posted a picture of the ring on Facebook in the hopes that someone would recognize it.

The post was quickly shared over 11,000 times.

That same day, John Kaiser, a man who only lives six blocks away from Judy, found the ring with his son and fiancée when he was at the mall.

When Kaiser’s mom went on Facebook, she saw the photograph of the ring and immediately knew it was the one they found.

“Within 24 hours, John had inboxed me on Facebook and said he found my mother s ring,” Jason told the news outlet.

Jason, wanting to tell his mom the great news in a clever way, got down on one knee and said, “Would you be my mother?”

Judy was beyond shocked.

“He said, ‘I’ve got your ring,’ ” she recalled. “I honestly can t believe it. I m just so happy to have it back. I really never thought that I would see it again.”
