PRINCESS MARY is probably not amused - Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark has lost his wedding ring.
He is believed to have lost the unique band while diving off a coral reef in Key West, Florida. The ring was designed from the first nugget of gold to be mined from Greenland, part of the Danish kingdom.
Dive instructor Steve Tropp, who accompanied the prince on his dive, told Se & Hr magazine that a team of divers spent weeks searching for the ring, which was lost in January.
He said: "There is a big reef out there and Crown Prince Frederik didn't know exactly where he lost it. It seems to be a rather big and expensive ring.

Some of you know that I worked in the jewelry industry for 30 years; it has always amazed me how derisively dismissive people are when I tell them never to dive wearing their jewelry--especially rings and bracelets. (This advice extends to swimming pools and hot tubs, BTW, for other reasons as well.)

Maybe this will be a wake-up call to some folks. If you don't want to risk losing it, don't wear it.

I know about that one; a dive buddy and I actually have looked for that thing off and on since the loss (truthfully, it was just another excuse to get another dive in) and as expected had absolutely no joy.

But it was fun just futzing around underwater for an hour or so...

Its amazing how much jewelry is lost in the water.The colder the water is the more the fingers shrink.Around here the water stays cold most of the year. we like to go out to the swim beaches with are medal detector's and pic it up:smiley2:

If anything is on your ear lobe and you're diving CSSP, the object is no doubt lodged in the intestine of a piranha perch. Just look for the backed-up fish.
