Michael Pond and his wife, Kris Pond, spent hours on Tuesday sifting through the hot rubble where their Santa Rosa home once stood, anxiously searching for Kris’ missing diamond ring. The couple told ABC News they found not one, but two treasured diamonds in the ashes.

“I found Kris’ wedding ring along with another precious diamond ring from [an] uncle, old diamonds and settings,” Michael Pond told ABC News.

The couple said they are thankful for the help and kindness they have received amid this difficult time.
