I was contacted by Ambi today to do a Special recovery for a wedding toe ring at North Beach Provincial Park. This was a first for me as I’ve never been asked to look for a toe ring before. Although this ring is small and made of silver, it has a huge sentimental value since Ambi placed the ring on her toe on their wedding day over 19 years ago. Yesterday, was their 19th wedding anniversary. Needless to say, I wasn’t going to stop until I found it for them. After about 20 minutes, the ring was found very near where she had felt it come off in the sand. I always love folk’s reaction, especially the ladies, when you first show them the lost item and then reunite them with it. As well, I learned something new today.
They are tamil. In a Hindu wedding, toe ring is also given by the husband to the wife. Toe rings worn by a woman signify that she is married. In many different Indian cultures, the husband puts the toe rings on the second toe of both of the wife’s feet during the wedding ceremony. It is worn as a symbol of the married state by Hindu women.
Very nice folks and another happy ending.
