A superstitious Australian who found a diamond ring 14 years ago has finally turned in the bauble after being “cursed with bad luck ever since.”

The ring was placed last week at Smithton Police Station in Stanley on Tasmania’s northwest coast.

The precious piece of jewelry with a large round diamond came with a mysterious note from an anonymous author.

“I found this ring on Alexander Terrace in 2007,” the note read.

‘I’ve been unlucky ever since. Sorry.’

Smithton police urged the ring owner to come forward to claim the trinket, which they said was the cause of “strange things” at the station.

“Don’t be Gol-lum anymore,” the police joked on Facebook.

“We would like to return this precious ring to its one and only owner because, frankly, strange things have happened around here since it arrived.”

The bizarre package quickly sparked residents’ imaginations and many shared their theories in the comments.

‘Spooky. Wonder where they found it and under what circumstances. I hope the real owner comes forward and fills in the gaps,” one user wrote.

“Looks like my mom is calling, but she’s in Hobart. Spooky to see this post because I haven’t seen my mother or that ring in ten years,” wrote another.

Other commentators speculated whether the original owner had discarded the ring in an attempt to eradicate the curse of the trinkets.

“Are you sure the owner lost it and didn’t throw it away?” noted one user.

“I probably would have gotten rid of it after a year of bad luck, not having waited 14 years,” another surmised.
