When a husband lost his wedding ring 17 years ago in a river, he never expected to see it again. But it surprisingly turned up after all those years!
A resident in British Columbia, Canada had recently found a wedding ring while swimming in the Penticton channel. The wedding band had an inscription in it, and local police were trying to locate the owners of it.
“The ring is a men’s wedding band with the inscription of NOEL LOVES STEPHANIE and then a date,” shared Cst Dayne Lyons, Penticton Royal Canadian Mounted Police Media Officer. “This may be the one ring to rule them all, and we want to return it!”
Husband Lost His Wedding Ring Then It Shows Up 17 Years Later
The news of the found ring got back to the owner, Noel Nissan, who had lost the ring almost two decades ago during a summer trip with friends when they were floating down the river.
“I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s totally ours,’ but that ring was lost so long ago. I was just in complete shock,” Noel said.
And the wedding ring was in surprisingly great condition after all that time!
“You wouldn’t believe how good of a shape it’s in after 17 years in the channel,” said Noel. “I would have thought for sure that it would have been worn down from years of water and sand going over it.”
Noel and Stephanie are about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, and the resurgence of this wedding ring couldn't have come at a better time. They hope to celebrate the big anniversary with a family trip and a possible romantic getaway with just the two of them.
“We don’t have the kids around as much," said Noel. "So, this is a new chapter and this [ring] celebrates that for us. In sickness and in health, for better and worse.”
What an incredible story! God bless Noel and Stephanie as they continue loving each other and celebrating their marriage.
