Couple reunited with long lost wedding ring

Couple Reunited With Long Lost Wedding Ring

Sarah and Greg Lindsay were recently reunited with a cherished wedding ring that was lost at Ellwood Beach two years ago.


After a certain period of time, most people start to accept lost items will never be returned. Such was the case for a couple in California, Sarah and Greg Lindsay, who lost a cherished wedding ring at Ellwood Beach two years ago. It was then that Greg's ring somehow slipped off his finger and landed in the ocean while he was playing football.

Unfortunately he didn't notice it was gone until it was too late. Greg remarked, 'I thought it was somewhere in the Pacific. There's no way I thought after losing it, there's no way it would come back on shore.' Turns out the tide never took it away, and a woman saw it while walking on the beach two years later.

She found it in the sand and then she posted a picture of it on Facebook. Thousands of people reposted it. It only took four days for everything to come full circle.

Jenn Birchim is responsible for finding the ring. At first she didn't think much of it. In fact, she actually thought it was a bottle cap, but a close inspection revealed it was an engraved piece of jewelry. Birchim read the inscription which noted 'My Love, My Life, My Lobster' (a 'Friends' reference) and knew the ring was special to someone out there.

Greg says the act was so kind, it 'restored his faith in humanity'.
