Mary Grams misplaced something very important to her while she was working in her garden 15 years ago. Her diamond engagement had been lost and she was never able to find it.
You will not believe where the ring was eventually found! It recently came back into her life when her daughter in law was working outdoors. She was in the process of digging up carrots for dinner.
Once she pulled a carrot from the ground, she immediately knew what she had found. Colleen is responsible for finding the ring, which happened to have encircled the carrot perfectly.
If we did not know any better, we would have assumed that the carrot was getting ready for a wedding of their own. Mary was stunned, as she had assumed the ring was lost forever.
You know what they say. The things that we are trying to find tend to be in the last place that we look, mostly because we are done searching at that point. All jokes aside, this is one of the most incredible stories that we have seen in some time. It is one thing for the ring to have been found during a dig. It is quite another for it to have perfectly encircled the carrot like this.
The ring had been in Mary’s possession since 1951. She received the ring from her husband Norman and even found a replacement after losing it in 1966. She did not tell Norman what had taken place because she was worried about the potential backlash. Mary is currently residing in Alberta but the family farm in Armena is still going strong.
The farm has been in the family for 100 years now. Colleen realized that the ring had to belong to one of her family members as soon as it was pulled from the ground. While Mary’s husband Norman had since passed on, she is still going to put the ring back on. Most miraculously of all, the ring remains a perfect fit. What an amazing story.

Editor’s Note:This is one of the more unusual finds that we have ever seen and we simply cannot get over it. Congrats to Mary and Colleen for being able to locate this prized possession once again.
