    I found an Ariel that passed away on 4/28/84, would you engrave the date someone died on a ring? Maybe if they passed it on to you? I would think date of birth would be better than date of death.

    I guess if she did it to memorialize them? Seems unusual but I could see myself doing it.

    There is an Ariel T. listed in Ancestry, who was born in in Harris County Texas on that date.

    There is also a Cathern Ariel E., born on that date in Riverside County California.

    I found Ariel T's facebook page, and sent him a private message.

    Is Cathern her last name Carl? There is a Ariel Cathern on fb but shows from SD.

    No, Cathern is her first name, and by all indications, that is the name she goes by - not her middle name Ariel.

    The one you found on fb sounds more possible then IMO. The ring was engraved Ariel so I would assume that she would have used the first name for engraving if it signified the birth of a child and birthdate.

    Was anyone able to find any marriage records involving the name "Ariel" and the date 4/28/84?

    FWIW Ariel is a common name in Mexico. I thought she might have named one of her kids Ariel & the date on the ring was a birth date.

    & Side note there are a lot of normal pedestrians in LA- there's a stereotype of people hating public transit or walking anywhere in LA but people do it.
    L'chaim!

    One thing to note that americans might not have noticed - the M/D/Y date format is almost exclusive to the US as the main date format. Perhaps the woman has Mexican or other national ties, but I believe this indicates the ring was made in the US, and the woman was comfortable enough with that date format to choose it in a setting she felt was personally important.

    I was thinking because the ring has two clear stones, that maybe those clear stones would signify the birth stone for the month of April, which is a "diamond".
    That said, the date being in April as well, could be a Mother's Ring, maybe?

    IMOO.
