Beachley loses engagement ring in harbour
The retired Aussie surfer, who is due to marry INXS rocker Kirk Pengilly, lost her 1.35 carat ring while swimming in Sydney Harbour.
Beachley told The Daily Telegraph: "I was training with the Manly Police squad and we were pretty much just throwing balls around in the water, but by the end of the day I realised it was gone."
The 37-year-old then enlisted divers with underwater metal detectors to find the jewellery but did not have any luck. "I was devastated. I thought it was gone," she said. "They said to me the chances of finding it were really slim."
Beachley said that she saw a couple having wedding photos near the spot where she lost the ring later that day and "saw that as an omen". The experts finally found it "buried under three inches of sand" in the water.
