A wedding ring that got lost in the sea has reunited with its owner. The owner of the ring had thought it was gone forever until 11-year-old Priya Sahu found it in the sand and returned it.
Matt Eastley’s gold wedding ring got missing on Ventnor Beach on the Isle of Wight two months ago. Priya and her mother ensured the ring was returned to its owner. Mr. Eastley had compared the wedding band to the “glass slipper in Cinderella”.
He was in the sea and didn’t know the ring had slipped off his finger. Disappointed, he left the Isle of Wight, but asked a cafe owner on the beach to keep watch out for it. He only hoped to get the ring back; however, he was planning to get another one.
The following day, Priya found the ring washed up in the sand and the mother-daughter team looked for its owner.

We thought someone must be devastated about losing their wedding ring and Priya said it would be magical if we could find this person.Mrs. Sahu
They contacted the cafe owner, who was asked to keep an eye on the ring, and then he eventually put them in touch with Mr. Eastley.
Priya and Mrs. Sahu celebrated the missing ring’s discovery and then reunited Mr Eastley with his wedding ring in Watts Park. He had been wearing the ring for 15 years. He was very happy his ring was found and returned to him.
[Losing the ring] was devastating. It is irreplaceable – that’s the only word I can think of. But it’s been wonderful. It’s life-affirming. It’s a really happy ending. It’s been a bit of a grim 2020 but [the find has] certainly put a smile on my face.Mr Eastley
