After losing her engagement ring on her family farm more than a decade ago, Canadian Mary Grams resigned herself to the idea she would never see it again.

That is, until the diamond ring showed up this week - 13 years after she lost it -wrapped tightly around a misshapen carrot that had been freshly plucked from the garden.

The 84-year-old said she likely lost the ring as she was pulling a large weed from her farm in central Alberta in 2004, prompting a frantic search. "We looked high and low on our hands and knees ... we couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it," she told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. "I cried so many times."

At that point she had been wearing the ring for more than half a century, ever since her husband-to-be, Norman, had given it to her in 1951.

When days of searching proved fruitless, she decided not to tell her husband. "I didn't tell him, even, because I thought for sure he'd give me heck or something," she said. "Then I finally went to the jeweller and bought a cheap ring. I only told my son, I didn't tell nobody else."

Her husband - who died five years ago, shortly after the couple's 60th wedding anniversary - never noticed the swap, said Grams.

The missing ring remained a secret until earlier this week, when her granddaughter brought over a freshly-picked carrot that had an ornate ring encircling it. "I recognised it right away," said Grams. "They found it yesterday when my daughter-in-law was digging carrots for supper."
