A metal detectorist couple has united a 450-year-old silver love ring with its second half 3 years after finding the first. 
The partial artifact was discovered in Lancashire and inscribed on it is the word "Yours". Love rings during the TudorEra, were inscribed with a variety of different messages, therefore the options of what the complete meaning may be, was endless.

Whoever the misfortunate lover is who lost their ring will remain a mystery, buried in time.

Shortly following this, a startling discovery was made.  


A ship, loaded with $13,000,000 worth of gold and other valuables lay buried under the ocean floor. Searches of the Namibian shoreline turned up many finds in relation to ships which got lost at sea and this has been a very significant find.
