Swede finds wedding ring in vege patch

10:20 am on 2 January 2012

A Swedish woman has discovered her wedding ring on a carrot growing in her garden 16 years after she lost it.

Lena Paahlsson had long ago lost hope of finding the ring, which she designed herself, the BBC reports.

The white-gold band, set with seven small diamonds, went missing in her kitchen in 1995, she told a Swedish newspaper.

Although the ring no longer fits, she hopes to have it enlarged.
