There is always something good you can keep from a bad situation.
And after Mike Perett lost his leg in 2006 after falling from a mountain in India, he kept the leg.
Girlfriend Melita had stood by him through it all, and in 2011, when he decided to propose to her, he teamed up with London-based jeweller Ingle & Rhode to have pieces of his bone kept in the ring.
Melita loved it, and says the ring is so special to her.
“I guess why it’s so special to me,” Melita said to BuzzFeed, “is because I think it shows his bravely coming to terms with something like that so positively… which has to be a good attribute for marriage.”
