Canadian woman Mary Grams, now 84 years of age, was devastated when her diamond engagement ring went missing in 2004. She thought the band may have slipped off her finger while she was trying to uproot a particularly stubborn weed on the family farm. But then the piece of jewelry was unearthed some 13 years later. And where it turned up is simply astonishing…

Owned by Grams’ family for more than a century, the farm is located close to the tiny hamlet of Armena in Alberta, Canada. It is a relatively remote place, close-knit and sparsely inhabited. According to the country’s 2011 Census Armena is home to only 16 dwellings and just 47 people.

The recovery of the ring after all these years certainly conjures up the suitably agricultural proverb to “find a needle in a haystack.” After all, the band turned up by complete surprise in the most unlikely of places at odds of what must be one in several billions.
