A Canadian woman named Mary Grams lost her diamond engagement ring while weeding her garden on the family farm 13 years ago.
Grams thought in 2004 that the diamond engagement ring was gone forever. She did everything to find it and believed it was rototilled or something happened to it.
This week, her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot, which was pulled from the ground on the family farm.
Grams, now 84 years old, told CBC News that she recognized the ring right away when she saw it. She added that she had the diamond engagement ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman. She immediately replaced it and never told her husband what happened.
“I didn’t tell him, even, because I thought for sure he’d give me heck or something,” said Grams. Her husband died five years ago, a month after their 60th wedding anniversary.
Colleen Daley, her daughter in law said the carrot she pulled from the ground looked like a finger wearing a ring. “If you look at it, it grew perfectly around the [ring]. It was pretty weird looking. I’ve never seen anything like that. It was quite interesting,” she said.
Daley said she believed the ring belonged to either grandma or her mother-in-law because no other women lived in the farm. She added, “I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot.”
Grams felt relieved and happy to see her original diamond engagement ring, which still fits on her finger after so many years. According to her, “I am going to wear it because it still fits.”
