VENICE, Fla. (AP) -- A unique wedding ring lost in the Gulf of Mexico has been found by a southwest Florida treasure hunter.

Sarah Whitten-Grigsby and Les Grigsby had matching titanium wedding rings with colored dots around the bands. Les Grigsby's ring slipped from his hand into the waters off Venice in June.

For months, the couple would describe the ring to anyone they saw at the beach with a metal detector.

Mark DesErmia of Venice found the ring in January about 50 feet from shore and tracked down the couple around Valentine's Day.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1lnfVEL) that DesErmia has found a ring lost in the waters before. In 2007, he found a 1967 Stanley Cup championship ring that former Toronto Maple Leafs hockey star Jim Pappin had lost in the 1970s.
