A Canadian woman lost her engagement ring and found it wrapped around a carrot 13 years later


A Canadian woman's long-lost engagement ring made its way back to her thanks to a very lucky carrot.

Mary Grams, 84, lost the ring while weeding her garden on the family farm 13 years ago. After searching for weeks and crying for days, Grams told Global News she went out and bought a similar ring, hoping her husband wouldn't notice. Luckily, he didn't.

Grams' husband died five years ago and she had given up all hope of finding the ring.

But much to her surprise, Grams' daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley, found the ring while harvesting carrots at the family farm near Armena, Alberta.

Daley said she was pulling the carrots and noticed one of them looked odd. When she washed them off, Daley was surprised to find an engagement ring. When Daley told her husband about what she had found, they quickly gave Grams a call.

"I said we found your ring in the garden. She couldn't believe it," Daley said. "It was so weird that the carrot grew perfectly through that ring."

Grams said she was excited to try the ring on again after so many years.

"I feel relieved and happy inside," Grams said this week. "It grew into the carrot. I still can't figure it out."
