How's this for lost and found? On Sunday, a Massachusetts woman was reunited with her engagement ring that had been missing for 17 years.
Local newspaper The Patriot Ledger reports that Valerie Lynch lost her wedding band and 1.2-carat diamond engagement ring in 1995 at her sister's Plymouth, Mass. home after taking them off to put sunscreen on her children.
A couple of years later, the band was found, though the engagement ring remained missing. But on Sunday, Lynch's sister met metal detection hobbyist Kent Blethen, who offered to do a search. Blethen found the ring within 40 minutes.
“I was in complete shock –- absolute shock. I just keep looking at it now, and I just can’t even believe its on my finger,” Lynch told CBS Boston. “It’s more beautiful than I ever remember.”
