Found: A One Carrot Diamond Ring: NPR

http://www.npr.org/2017/08/17/544151627/found-1-carrot-diamond-ring


please hit link to see carrot growing around ring, thank you


Mary Grams, 84, holds a carrot that grew through her engagement ring in Alberta, Canada. Grams, who lost her diamond ring 13 years ago while pulling weeds in her garden, is wearing it proudly again after her daughter-in-law pulled it from the ground on a misshapen carrot.


______________________________________________________________________________________
Thirteen years ago, Mary Grams of Alberta, Canada, was weeding on the family farm when her diamond engagement ring dating back to 1951 went missing.

Grams searched "high and low" but couldn't find it, she told the CBC. She gave up on ever finding the treasured jewelry. And she never told her husband, "because I thought for sure he'd give me heck or something."

This week, the ring reappeared pinched tight around a malformed carrot.

11. It may be a one-carrot ring...

...but I sincerely doubt that's a one-carat diamond.
