Paulina Morales was playing in the snow with her fiancé, Deven Maraj while the couple were vacationing in Breckinridge, Colorado, last month, when she lost her custom diamond engagement ring.
They spent days looking for the ring, which was designed by Maraj’s father specifically for Morales, but never found it. Then they had to return to their home in Texas, but before they left, they contacted local reporter Spencer Wilson to help spread the word about the missing ring and the $500 reward they were offering for the ring’s return.
Wilson personally looked for the ring, but also had no luck. But then local metal detectorist Tony Pizzamigalo showed up to search, and found the ring in no time. Wilson recorded a Zoom call with Morales where he asked her to describe the ring again. Then he pulled out the ring and said, “Does it look like this?” A grateful Morales was nearly in tears about the good news and now the ring is on its way back to her in Texas.
- The good Samaritan who found the ring plans to donate the $500 reward to a backcountry search and rescue organization.
