One ring to bind them all

A recent article from the Northern Advocate tells the story of a ring lost in the ocean at Long Beach, only to be found by a metal detector hobbyist six years later. Vivienne and Jeff Ninnes had their engagement ring specially designed and handmade by Carats Jewellers in Auckland seventeen years ago. In 2008 the ring was lost in the surf along with the wedding ring whilst on holiday. JVC valued the rings and the client had new ones made as part of their insurance settlement.
