A man in Australia gave his girlfriend a necklace with an engagement ring hidden inside. After he proposed, she said "yes" and called him an "idiot" for not realizing she could have lost the ring.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. I remember the fear when I was carrying my wife's engagement ring around before proposing. I was sure I would lose it. I wish I had been as smart as this Australian guy who had his girlfriend carry the ring for a year without knowing it. He hid it inside a wooden necklace that he gave to her. After he finally cut open the necklace and popped the question, The Huffington Post reports the woman said yes. Then she called her fiance an idiot for not realizing she could have lost the ring. It's MORNING EDITION.
