Woman's long-lost engagement ring found on carrot

  • CBC News       An 84-year-old Canadian widow got her missing engagement ring back after her daughter-in-law found it in a garden wrapped around a carrot

When she was washing the vegetables she noticed the ring and spoke to her husband, Mrs Grams' son, about what she had found.

The ring came off Mary Grams' finger when she was gardening back in 2004.

Now, in a surprising and unusual turn of events, 84-year-old Grams has been reunited with her long-lost engagement ring when it turned up fitted around a carrot picked from the family farm by her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley.

She was about to throw it out when a sparkle caught her eye and she saw the ring wrapped tightly around the carrot.

Grams searched "high and low" but couldn't find it, she told the CBC.

The carrot was able to grow through and around the ring after all these years.

"I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law", Daley told CBC News, "because no other women have lived on that farm".

She received the ring in 1951 from her husband, the year before they married.

A Canadian woman who lost her engagement ring 13 years ago while weeding her garden on the family farm is wearing it proudly again after her daughter-in-law pulled it from the ground on a misshapen carrot.

"Daley said while she was pulling the carrots and noticed one of them looked unusual", the AP writes.
