Thanks to social media and a genuine person, a vital ring was found, as ABC News reports:
A Gold Coast woman who lost her engagement ring has been reunited with her diamond after a stranger from social media helped her with the hunt.
After only being engaged for three days, Tayla Daly realised the ring of her dreams had vanished from her finger.
The 25-year-old retraced her trip from work to home, but the ring was nowhere in sight.
“I was bawling my eyes out and just tried to retrace my steps — I’d only just been to the petrol station,” Ms Daly told Channel Nine.
In a last-ditch effort, Ms Daly put a call-out on social media in the hope someone picked it up.
But it was a kind stranger, Jade Austin, who messaged Ms Daly straight away to help.
“I felt really bad for her because six years ago I actually lost mine,” Ms Austin said.
Ms Austin, who is also heavily pregnant, jumped into her car to drive over 20 minutes to search the petrol station, carwash and local pawn shops.
When she arrived at the petrol station, she asked to look at the security footage to see if anyone else found the ring — but no-one had.
Ms Austin was ready to give up when she spotted the missing ring on the ground and messaged the bride-to-be with the good news.
See ABC News for more details.
And in asking help for finding,
Not just the ring was found,
The story brought reminding,
Of a familiar sound.
The sound of sorrow in the losing,
Of remembering that pain,
It brings a twice-loved pleasure,
When the treasure is found again.
Lo and behold another treasure,
Emerged for a greater end,
For the second lasting pleasure,
Was to make another friend.
