Melisse De La Mare had little hope of being reunited with the wedding ring she lost nearly three decades ago while on a skiing trip. "I took my mitten off. I was like, 'Oh, no, my ring is gone,'" she said recently from her Oregon home. Then, a jeweler in Alabama contacted De La Mare to tell her a client had found it and kept it in a box for 27 years. A journalist helped the jeweler search wedding license certificates until she found the right one, and De La Mare was reunited with her ring.
