A Swedish woman has discovered her wedding ring which she designed herself, on a carrot growing in her garden, 16 years after she lost it!
The ring with white-gold band, set with seven small diamonds, went missing in her kitchen in 1995.
Although the ring no longer fits, after 16 years :) she hopes to have it enlarged so she can wear it again.
How she lost it ? She took the ring off to do some Christmas baking with her daughters, but it disappeared from the work surface where it had been left.
The family searched everywhere and years later took up the tiling on the floor during renovations, in the hope of finding the ring.
It was not until 16 years later when Mrs Paahlsson was pulling up carrots in her garden that she noticed one with the gold band fastened tightly around it.
The couple believe the ring fell into a sink back in 1995 and was lost in vegetable peelings that were turned into compost or fed to their sheep.
