Woman gets back engagement ring after 67 years

  • Woman gets back engagement ring after 67 years

    A pensioner who threw her engagement ring into a field after having a tiff with her fiance has had it returned to her 67 years later.

    It was 1941 when young lovers Samuel and Violet Booth were out strolling in the Leicestershire countryside and they had a disagreement.

    Although it was only a few months until their wedding, Violet threw the ring into a field in her fury.

    However the couple soon made up and married as planned, but the ring was not found.

    "I was in such a state when we couldn't find it. Samuel didn't tell me off, he wasn't like that. We got a new one, but it's not the same, is it?" Violet told the Daily Mail.

    But the 88-year-old, whose husband Samuel died 15 years ago, was able to slip the ring back on her finger this year after her grandson Leighton found the ring using his metal detector.

    Violet said: "I didn't ever think I would see it again. I couldn't believe it when he brought it back. It's amazing.

    "I was very emotional and shed a few tears. It certainly brought back a few memories. It's something to remember Samuel by - he was a very nice man."
