RINGS RETURNS AFTER YEARS MISSING
With a dose of romance and nostalgia we bring you the story of a Canadian woman’s missing engagement ring that reappeared after 13 years, stuck on a carrot on the family farm. Mary Grams, now 84, lost the ring way back in 2004 while weeding on her farm north of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada. She was called away to help elsewhere before she could search for it and it remained missing until just recently. “I went to the garden for something and I saw this long weed. For some reason, I picked it up and it must have caught on something and pulled [the ring] off,” she told local news.

While Grams maintains that she had a general idea where the ring went missing, she was unable to find it after weeks of searching and thought it best to buy a replacement before her husband learned of the loss. “I didn’t tell him, even, because I thought for sure he’d give me heck or something,” Grams told the Blot.

About a decade later, after Grams had moved away from the farm, her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley, found the missing engagement ring wrapped around a carrot. “I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law because no other women have lived on that farm,” Daley said. “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.”
Daley helped Grams snap the ring off of the carrot, and the 84-year-old placed it around her finger and said she would make sure to keep it safe the second time around. “Anything I do outside, I’m going to take it off and it’s going to stay,” Grams said. “I should’ve put it in a safe place in the first place, but I didn’t.”
