A grandfather was moved to tears after being reunited with his wedding ring more than 40 years after he lost it.

Michael Hill and his wife Kaye, both 72, jumped with joy after treasure hunter Jual Butler reunited them with the ring on Sunday.

Mr Hill lost his ring, which is engraved with the date of his wedding, more than 40 years ago when he was mowing the lawn at the couple's home in Tingalpa, Brisbane.

At first he thought the ring would turn up but as the years went by he accepted that his priceless keepsake was lost forever.
But when his children came across Mr Butler on Facebook they enlisted his services.

After coming round with his metal detector Mr Butler was able to find the location of the ring after more than 11 hours of searching.

'It was an emotional time,' Mr Hill said.
'The times I walked over that ring (without knowing it) would have been hundreds of times.'

Finding the wedding band has special significance for the couple who celebrate their 50-year golden wedding anniversary next year.

The loss had always bothered Mr Hill, a retired accountant.

The ring slipped from his finger more than four decades ago as he mowed the lawn and scattering the grass clippings over the fence, not long after he was married.
