84 year old Mary Grams lost the precious diamond whilst pulling a large weed from her garden back in 2004.
A woman has been reunited with her long-lost engagement ring after her granddaughter found it tightly wrapped around a carrot that was pulled up for dinner at their family farm.
Out of embarrassment she said she kept it a secret from everyone except her son, going as far as buying a replacement ring so her husband Norman would be none the wiser.
"I'm going to wear it because it still fits", she told CBC News. Her husband died five years ago, but she told the BBC he was a "joker" who would have been amused by the whole situation. Instead, Grams said she went to the store and purchased an identical, cheaper band.
The carrot was able to grow through and around the ring after all these years.
The woman's daughter-in-law found the lost ring.
Infosys to consider share buyback plan; shares jump
Manikanta also said Infosys is closing the trading window with immediate effect and the trading window will reopen on August 22. The Bengaluru-based firm had recently adopted a new Articles of Association that included a provision for buyback.
"Daley said while she was pulling the carrots and noticed one of them looked unusual", the AP writes.
No one ever thought they would see the ring again.
Grams, who no longer lives on the farm that's been in the family for more than 100 years, couldn't believe it when she received a call from Daley. "I've never seen anything like that".
"I had given up hope", said Lena Paahlsson.
And 13-years later, it turned up in the middle of carrot that had been growing there.
I asked my husband if he recognized the ring.
