Wedding Ring Found at Ellwood Beach Returned
updated: Apr 15, 2014, 10:50 AM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

On April 6th, local resident Jenn Birchim posted a Facebook photo of a wedding ring she found at Ellwood Beach. The gold wedding band was inscribed with, "My Love, My Life, My Lobster." Bircham posted the below caption with the photo, "Let's see if we can find the owner of this wedding band I found today at Ellwood beach in the super low tide. There is an inscription on the inside "my love, my life, my lobster"...maybe a lobster fisherman? Pass it along friends! Let's stoke someone out and return it!"

Soon after posting, the photo became viral and a week later accumulated over 25,000 shares. Not far away in Ojai, Sarah Lindsay heard of the story from a co-worker who shared it on Facebook. "She read everything that [Birchim] had posted and I was like, 'That's my ring! It's my husbands ring!' She showed it to me and sure enough, it was the ring," said Sarah, reported by KEYT.

Two years ago Sarah and Greg Lindsay were visiting Ellwood beach when Greg's ring slipped off his finger and fell into the water. Through the connection of Facebook the Lindsay's were able to meet Birchim and reunite with their lost wedding ring. KEYT was there and captured the moment on video, view it here. The Lindsay's explained the meaning of the inscription is from an episode of "Friends" where they discuss how lobsters mate for life, see the clip below.

The story and video were featured on Good Morning America Tuesday and have been picked up by other national news organizations. "Totally resorted my faith in humanity,' Greg said. "I was like wow, there are still honest good people out here like Jenn, to be able to do the right thing. So it was pretty cool." A happy ending for all involved!
