Mary Grams was working on her family farm in Alberta, Canada in 2004 when she lost her diamond engagement ring in the dirt while gardening. She thinks it slipped off while she tore a weed out of the ground. Don't you hate it when that happens?
"We looked high and low on our hands and knees. We couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it. I didn't tell him, even, because I thought for sure he'd give me heck or something," she said in an interview with the CBC.
She had the ring since 1951, the year before she married her husband, Norman, who passed away five years ago, so you could say that it meant a lot to her.
Because she was afraid that her husband would start an argument with her for losing the ring, she quickly had it replaced.
However after 13 years, her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley, while working on the family farm, pulled a carrot from out of the ground and saw this.
Daley spoke about the improbable find:
"I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law. because no other women have lived on that farm. 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."
Mary Grams was overjoyed to find the ring, and when she slid it on her finger, it fit perfectly.
She plans on keeping it on too, "because it still fits."
This isn't the first time a ring's ended up on a carrot. Just ask this German couple who had the same exact thing happen to them.
