Couple Returns Wedding Ring Found In St Lucia To Owners In South Africa

A British couple who found a wedding ring while diving in the Caribbean will soon reunite it with it’s owner after it spent a few years lost at sea.

John and Julie Campbell,having just been married was enjoying a nice honeymoon snorkel when they came across the ring at the bottom of the ocean where they were diving.

Since they already had gold bands of their own they decided to post their finding on Facebook hoping to track down the owner.

A couple of days ago a couple from South Africa, who lost the ring while swimming off the St Lucian coast got in touch with Julie, and will now be reunited with it.

A statement from the pair said : “The ring was lost on a family vacation, while the couple was playing in the ocean with their children. He said he threw a ball to his kids and the ring went with it. They were not staying at Sandals La Toc so the ring traveled from another area on the island. The couple lives in South Africa and will have their ring back soon! Thank you all for your help in finding them.”

Julie first launched her quest to find them on facebook with a post that read: “We found a treasure at the bottom of the ocean yesterday in Saint Lucia. The wedding band is engraved MT 12-16-2012 and was found in the water at Sandals Regency La Toc. It is yellow and white gold. The jeweler’s stamp is “sja” and links to a jeweler in New Hampshire. Let’s share this out and see if we can find the owner.”

She wrote basic details about the ring and did not reveal much about it to foil scammers.She was delighted when the owners from South Africa got in touch.

The Campbells now plan to post the ring to the owners in South Africa who will be finally reunited with the ring.
