OKLAHOMA CITY  - A night out in Bricktown leaves one woman frantic, after her wedding ring turns up missing. So she posted a picture on Facebook and it spread far beyond Oklahoma.

"I never thought I'd see it on my finger ever again," said the ring's owner, Alycea Chandler.

Alycea's search made the rounds on social media, after she unknowingly left the family heirloom behind at Club One15.

"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."

In fact, it wasn't until Saturday she realized the ring was gone.

"I honestly didn't notice, my husband noticed," said Chandler. "I was in shock."

But her ring was safe, locked in a safe back in Bricktown.

One of the workers in the bar had found the jewelry on the ground.

"We followed procedure, took it, put it in the safe," said Adam Coury, General Manager of Club One15. "That was about the last thing I had heard about it until today actually."

He heard about it, as did KFOR, through a post by Alycea that caught fire on Facebook.

"I thought it was a long shot, I knew some of my closest friends would share it for me," said Chandler.

The post was shared more than 2,500 times, was spread in nearby states, reportedly shared even in the UK, and ultimately made its way back to Adam's feed.

"I got a message from this lady...she said hey, I heard you may have a ring," said Coury. "The fact that I can trust my staff, even with small things like that, you can't replace that."

The ring was returned to Alycea Monday afternoon, and for her it's truly a ring that can not be replaced.

"I have something to pass on to my son someday, from his grandfather that he never got to meet," said Chandler. "That means the world to us."

Alycea tells KFOR the ring is worth at least $15,000, and she's now considering leaving it at home in her own safe.
