In November, the home of former Bears receiver Willie Gault was burglarized and his 1985 Super Bowl championship ring was stolen. But thanks to a sports memorabilia collector who spotted the ring at a jewelry store and a celebrity gossip web site that dabbles in sports, his ring has been recovered.

TMZ has the story of burglars taking $100,000 of Gault’s jewelry during that November robbery. But Gault told the website that Los Angeles Police Department officers have recovered the Super Bowl ring -- which understandably makes Gault a happy man.

"The ring didn't define me as a person,” he said. “I knew the accomplishments I made ... I came to peace that I wouldn't get it back ... but, of course, I'm thrilled that I did."

The owner of the jewelry store has been arrested for possession of stolen property.
