Calif. husband and wife find her diamond ring in ashes of their charred home

A husband and wife who lost their home to the California wildfires found a glimmer of hope underneath the destruction.

Michael and Kris Pond spent hours on Tuesday sifting through the hot rubble where their Santa Rosa home once stood, anxiously searching for her missing diamond ring. The two 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 Ponds said they are thankful for the help and kindness they have received during this difficult time.

Firefighters are still battling the massive wildfires sweeping across multiple counties in California, which have burned more than 170,000 acres of land. The fires have killed at least 23 people and damaged more than 3,500 buildings.
