The reaction follows reports in Dorset of a man being reunited with a wedding ring six years after losing it in the sea. A Marlow’s Diamonds spokesperson provides a statement.

A lifeboatman from Dorset has been reunited with his wedding ring after his friend miraculously found it on a beach, six years after he’d lost it Weymouth Harbour. Mark Thorne’s ring slipped off his finger one day in 2009 as he was helping to launch a lifeboat during an emergency call, and somehow his friend spotted the platinum ring lying in the mud during a very low tide.

The friend, Steve Woolford, said he “couldn’t believe his eyes” when he noticed the ring. “We had a very low spring tide in Weymouth on Saturday and as I was walking along the quay something in the mud caught my eye,” he claimed. “I climbed down the ladder to investigate and it turned out to be the wedding ring my good friend Mark lost.”

Mr Thorne had used metal detectors and wet suits during his search for the ring after he lost it, returning every month to the same spot at low tide, but it was to no avail. He had given up hope of finding it until his friend contacted him with the news, and now Mr Thorne said he owes him “a bottle of whisky”.

Marlow’s Diamonds, a leading supplier of wedding rings across the UK, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “This is an unbelievable story that goes to show that miracles can happen. Somehow, six years after losing the wedding ring it managed to show up out of the blue.

“Mr Thorne and his partner must be delighted with the discovery, and after a bit of cleaning he can now go back to wearing it again. Wedding rings are items which should be cherished for life, and they’re a symbol of a bond between two people. If you’re in the market for gorgeous wedding or engagement rings then Marlow’s Diamonds is sure to have the perfect items for you.”
