NYPD even cleaned the ring, which had bounced 8 feet into the grate.
The couple, who had already left for England, also bought a second ring but were extremely grateful.

Interestingly, the couple, who was obviously embarrassed, had initially planned to keep the lost ring a secret but were relieved after NYPD found it.

Who knows, the couple may invite them to their wedding.
Guess, being in the police's 'Wanted' list isn't always bad.
