UNUSUAL – It’s a story that seems to have come out of a fairy tale. Mary Grams, a Canadian living in the province of Alberta, found her engagement ring thirteen years after she lost it. The precious jewelry was discovered by the daughter-in-law around … a carrot.
Colleen Daley was collecting vegetables on the family farm, which has been passed down from generation to generation for 105 years, when she came across this curious specimen. the ring was discovered around a carrot.

The woman immediately maked the connection as she explained to CBC News.
“I knew that it belonged either to my grandmother or to my mother-in-law because no other woman had lived on this farm.” I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. Mother had lost her own years ago in the kitchen garden and had never found her. “And she resurfaced around this carrot.
Mary Grams can not believe it.
“I recognized him right away,” explains this octogenarian. It details how at the time, in 2004, all had returned the land from the kitchen garden, where it was sure to have lost it, to try to find it, but in vain. She had not even dared to confess to her husband, who died five years ago, that she had lost that gift she had owned since 1951, a year before their marriage.
Enchanted by this gesture of nature, Mary Grams is delighted to find that the ring still fits perfectly on her finger. And a carrot juice to celebrate.
