Back in 1968 in England for his 21st birthday, Dave Ridley was given a ring as a present from his mother. A few weeks later, while picking strawberries in the field behind his friend’s father’s house, he realized that the 9 carat ring was gone!
Then last month, Dave received a call from his friend who still owns the land and had great news! A metal detectorist asked if he could inspect the land and came across the ring!
It was found 7 inches down in the ground but only had one slight scratch and could easily be polished out.
Dave said, “The ring might not have changed but its owner has—so it’s a fairly tight fit,” Radley said.“I’ve had to have it changed slightly as I can just about get it on. But none of that matters because I’m so grateful to have it back”. “When I got the call from Peter I couldn’t quite believe it—the joy I felt in that moment is indescribable.”
