Woman Lost Her Wedding Ring, 13 Years Later Finds It In Most Bizarre Place Possible

Oct 10th, 2018

Weddings are beautiful and this is one of the most cherished moments of our lives. One of the highlights of a wedding is when the couple give their wedding rings to their partners. This is a prized possession that you cherish for the rest of your life. Weddings are not complete without the wedding rings. This does not only symbolize that you are married but also serves as your promise to each other.

An 84-year old woman named Mary Grams from Alberta, Canada lost her wedding ring in September 2004 while she was gardening. She said, “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 was searching for her ring for weeks, crying over it for days. She finally gave up and just bought herself another ring, similar to the one that she lost hoping that her husband would not notice it.

Thirteen years later, something amazing happened. Her ring showed up! Her son’s wife discovered it in the most unexpected place. Her son Brian said, “My wife was digging carrots for supper, and I guess she came up with a carrot that had something on it.” What she saw shocked her because the ring was wrapped around a carrot! The carrot looked liked a chubby finger where the blood circulation was cut off.

A wedding ring or a wedding band is placed on a ring finger to indicate that anyone who wears it is married. This is commonly a forged metal and it traditionally a forged gold or another precious metal. The earliest wedding rings are believed to be from Ancient Egypt.

It started to influence the Western customs way back during the times of the ancient Rome and Greece and were transmitted to the present through the Christendom in Europe. For different traditions, either the best man or the maid of honor has the responsibility to keep track of the couple’s wedding rings and produce them during the symbolic moment of the giving and receiving of rings during the wedding ceremony.

In other wedding traditions, the ring bearer may assist in the ceremonial parade of the rings during the ceremony holding the rings on a special cushion. Depending on your culture, a wedding band is normally worn on the base of the left or right ring finger. Many spouses are wearing their wedding bands day and night, causing a space in the skin that remains visible even when the ring is removed.

Since the nineteenth century in the West, it has been viewed as unfortunate to remove a wedding band once it has been set on the finger in church.

Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over – she knew: "It's mine!" #yeg pic.twitter.com/Ft7IMUeSMR

Mary’s husband, Norman, passed away five years ago. Now that she got her wedding ring back, she promised that she would make sure she will never lose it again. She shared, “Anything I do outside, I’m going to take it off and it’s going to stay. ” May Mary’s story be a lesson to other couples who value their wedding rings so much.

Be cautious especially when working outdoors. Other people keep them in a safe place to make sure that they do not lose it. Mary was lucky enough that even after 13 years, she was still able to reunite with her lost wedding ring.
