The Lore of the Rings

North Texas class rings separated from their owners seem to be popping up everywhere -- from bars, hospitals and golf courses to roadways and pill bottles. A few have found their way back to the families of their owners, others are still waiting to be reunited and at least one remains at large. Find out more about each ring on the map below.
