A family's heirloom wedding ring proves to be a symbol of resiliency - surviving not one, but two fires in Southern California.
While putting out hot spots on a street in Brentwood during the recent Getty Fire, firefighters found a water-logged yet beautiful antique jewelry box. Inside was an incredible diamond ring.
“When they opened it and saw the beautiful ring inside, they just knew this would be very important to the homeowner,” LAFD wrote in the post.
The house where the ring was found was one of the 484 destroyed after the 1961 Bel Air Fire. The resident of that house handed the ring down to her daughter, who rebuilt the home in the exact spot where her mother's burned down.
