Over 40 years ago, Sherrie McClure Lowery was taking a dip at Trinity Hot Springs in Featherville, Idaho, when she lost her wedding ring.

She presumed it was gone but the piece of jewelry made a  remarkable reappearance earlier this month at the bottom of the same pool. 

It was a 7-year-old boy, Theo, who came across the diamond ring while swimming at the resort, according to the Trinity Hot Springs Facebook page

"I saw a silver rounded thing and then I lifted it up and was like, that’s a wedding ring!" Theo told KTVB.  

Theo's mother, Rebecca Bloom, elaborated on Facebook.  

"The kids were all diving for treasure and he saw it and moved some rocks," she explained. "We were all so surprised."

The ring was turned in to the resort, which proceeded to track down the owner. Staff first tried to contact a woman who had previously listed her wedding ring as missing but it turned out she had found the ring later that day. So the resort took to Facebook to locate the owner.  

McClure saw the post and provided photos of the ring she had lost in the 1970s. It was a match.   

"OMG THAT'S IT!! Amazing!" Trinity responded on Facebook. The resort had reportedly cleaned the pool and hosted multiple "crystal hunts" to try and locate the ring but it somehow took over 40 years for it to be found. 

"It does seem really auspicious to have been buried for this long and to pop up suddenly at this time, it's a remarkable way to be reminded of love," Dana Stream, the Trinity Hot Springs owner, said per KTVB. 

Theo did not walk away empty-handed. He was awarded with a one-year annual membership to the resort for his effort and honesty.
