My object is a rather ugly ring. It is gold colored, but  the metal is probably stainless steal or something as the gold coloring is fading in specific areas. The gemstone is probably Onyx or Obsidian, it is also badly chipped. The ring looks pretty cheap.

 

I kept the ring with me for a week in my pocket. at no time was I tempted to put it on.

 

I know the ring once belonged to a refugee, and was left behind. I’m sure the ring has a back story and a history, but it simply did not register with me. It was still jus an ugly ring in my pocket. Most of the time I forgot it was even there. I wonder if perhaps why it was left behind. The original owner simply wanted to forget he had an ugly ring in his pocket.
