Gold wedding ring thought lost forever
I uncovered this wedding ring while searching for another one in the local ocean pool in Forster on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It was in sand approximately two meters underwater.
On returning home I was able to read the inscription “Love Karen 18-4-2015 inside the ring. The guy didn’t even manage to keep it a year!
A description of the ring and its location were placed on Facebook and approximately two days later a call from a local beautician who knew a couple from Dubbo (approximately 500km away) who had lost a ring while holidaying in Forster in January. The girl’s name was Karen.
A short time later I received a call from a slightly confused Karen who gave me the exact inscription inside the ring and the parts of the story that were missing. The ring went back to the happy couple the next day in the post with instructions on who to call next time. Yet another happy customer and a demonstration of the power of social media.
