A centenarian who lost his wedding ring five years ago was incredibly reunited with it on his 100th birthday.
World War 2 veteran Donald Dennis had no idea he would receive his cherished gold band while celebrating the impressive milestone on Sunday.
He had lost the ring in 2016 at an Aldi in Austin, Minnesota in the US, but it was discovered after a supermarket revamp.
Store managers were able to track Donald's daughter, Shari Johnson, down as the ring was engraved with his name, his wife's name and their wedding date.
She presented the ring to her unsuspecting dad, who now lives in Florida, during his birthday party.
Shari told US media: "He teared up. He got the biggest grin on his face and he just held that in his hand like it was a treasure, which it is, and he put it right back on his finger and it fit just fine."
It is not the first time wedding rings have been reunited with their owner years later.
In March last year, metal detector enthusiast Alan Webster stumbled across his dad's wedding ring after it was lost on a Scottish golf course in 2015.
His dad, Graeme, said he the ring had been in the family for more than a century and he had worn it since his marriage in 1967, but it vanished while he was playing golf at Gullane Golf Club, East Lothian.
The 18-carat solid gold band originally belonged to Alan's great-grandmother Margaret McKean, who was born in the late 19th century and married in the 1920s.
