Congratulations to Karen Roache Dixon, who is our February winner of the Treasured Times Contest.

Karen’s Treasured Time Couple celebrating their honeymoon, The Somerset on Grace Bay

Karen and her husband celebrated their honeymoon at The Somerset. They were mesmerized by Grace Bay’s beauty, particularly the sparkling turquoise waters. Her husband wanted to prove just how crystal clear the water was by dropping his wedding band from hand to hand, when a few minutes later, it accidentally fell and disappeared into the sand.

This was no ordinary wedding band either. The ring was melted from his mom’s ring, who had passed of breast cancer.

So, despite the ocean’s current and being six months pregnant, Karen kept in one place, marking the area it fell with her foot. Her husband then retrieved a strainer and began the frantic search for the missing ring. The Somerset staff even came to the beach to cheer the couple on and assist in the search. As the sky darkened, hope quickly began to fade. Suddenly, like magic, the ring appeared in the strainer and the crowd went wild!

Karen says, “He got the gold, and I got the gem and forever more.”
