(WTVM) - Social media helped return a long lost class ring to its rightful owner.

The class ring from 1968 has seen better days. It was lost for 45 years at a home in Alexandria, VA. The woman, who now lives at the ring owner's childhood home, found the ring in a pile of wood chips in the backyard. She took the mangled ring to a jeweler, who found the owner's initials inside.

After posting pictures of the ring on Facebook, she was able to track down the very surprised owner.

The owner offered the woman who found the ring a reward.

She told him the look on his face when he saw the ring was enough.
