Jay Bradford's ring fell in the water off Long Branch, New Jersey, while he was pulling an anchor in during a frustrating day searching for blackfish earlier this month.

Mr Bradford and boat captain Nick Barsa returned to the spot four days later with salvage diver Mark Thompson.

Mr Barsa steered the boat to the exact spot where the ring was lost, while dealing with 35-mile-per-hour winds and a big south-east swell.

Mr Thompson said he dove in and searched rock ledges and sifted through thousands of mussels. He says he found the ring in less than 10 minutes.
