Philippe had lost his ring while swimming at Sarzeau. This Thursday, a metal detection enthusiast found her on the same beach.

It's an incredible story! In 2004, while bathing a few steps away from his home on the beach of Saint-Jacques in Sarzeau, Philippe, now in his fifties, lost his alliance. The next day, he asks a friend with a metal detector to comb the sand. In vain.

Thursday, Gaël Roulin, a member of Detection 56, an association that brings together metal detection enthusiasts, is practicing on the beach of Saint-Jacques in Sarzeau, when his device begins to beep. He discovers in the sand a gold ring with the names of a couple "Philippe and Marie-Paule" and a wedding date. Neither one nor two, he post a photo of his discovery on Facebook but hides the date of the ceremony.The packaging is immediate.

Until Canada

"All weekend, with notifications, my phone has not stopped ringing , reports Gael Roulin. The research was shared more than 4,000 times across Canada. Some people have even turned into Sherlock Holmes by searching for Philippe and Marie-Paule. "

Gaël Roulin returned Monday afternoon the alliance found on the beach of Saint-Jacques in Sarzeau to his owner who wants to remain discreet. | DR

And then Monday is the epilogue. Friends of a couple with the same names contacted the "discoverer" because they thought they knew the happy owner. Verification made, the wedding date was the right one. "There was a lot of emotion when I found Philippe to hand him the alliance on Monday afternoon. He had mourned. So much so that he has even replaced it. "

How did this ring stay on the same beach despite the tides? "She probably sank deep enough before resurrecting through the currents. It is in perfect condition. Just like the love the couple still has!
