The hunt is on to reunite a lost wedding ring with its owner – after a Norwich mum uncovered the buried treasure in a park sandpit.

The gold ring bears the inscription ‘Tracey and Steve 20.7.96 Forever’, possibly a reference to the date of their wedding.

Michelle Knott found it while building a sandcastle with her son in St Clement’s Park on Sunday, and shared a picture on Facebook when she got home in a bid to find the owner of the ring.

The 34-year-old, of Heath Road, said it had probably belonged to a man, adding: “It looked like it had been there for a while, and it was quite a way down in the sand, but when I cleaned it up I saw the inscription.

“It could have been lost for quite a while, so whoever lost it may have given up on it.

“I’d like to try to find the owners. We’ve only been married a few months and if I lost my ring I’d like to think people would help me out.”

Ms Knott said she had searched online for the names Tracey and Steve, along with the wedding date, and shown the photograph to hundreds of people on her Facebook network.

She is now hoping to reach even more people – either Tracey and Steve or people who may know them – in the hope of returning the ring to its rightful home.
