OAKLAND, N.J. (AP) -- A New Jersey woman has reunited an Arizona man with the high school ring that he lost 50 years ago.

Horst Adler, a 1959 graduate of a school in Quakertown, Pa., had given the ring to a girl he was dating in Philadelphia in 1960 or 1961. She kept it after they broke up and the ring wasn't seen until a woman in Oakland, N.J., rummaged through her late father's belongings.

Lette Magrini told The Record newspaper the gold and onyx ring with the initials H.A. intrigued her.

Magrini e-mailed the school's administrative assistant, who found Adler was the only H.A. in the Class of '59. A Google search located the 69-year-old in Mesa, Ariz.

It's not known how her father got the ring.
