A 42-year old ecologist lost his wedding ring in the swampy water of the Wellington Harbor in New Zealand just a few month after he got married. He was determined to find it, despite the fact that everyone, including his wife, thought he was crazy.

Amazingly, a year and a half later he discovered it at the bottom of the sea using GPS coordinates and an amazing dose of faith. BoingBoing has the entire story behind his search, which ends up being a beautiful tale of love and dedication.
