Michael Sonsogno reunited with missing wedding ring

Michael Sonsogno was reunited with his wedding ring on Wednesday night, months after it slipped off his finger during a fishing trip off the Florida coast.

Sonsogno, in an interview with CBC News on Tuesday, said he remembered watching his ring — a  24-karat, two-tone wedding band — fall into the Atlantic Ocean in January.

"If it wasn't for all the sharks, fish and everything down there, I would have jumped in after it," he said.

He spent $600 to hire divers to look for the ring and notified management at the pier near where the ring was lost.

Miraculously, the ring was found during an Earth Day beach cleanup and on Wednesday it was returned to Sonsogno.

He's already planning on getting it re-sized so this doesn't happen again.
