Around 10:30 on Friday I got a text from a Karen. She said that she had lost her wedding and anniversary bands on the beach yesterday. I gave Karen a call and let her know that I would head out right away, but it would take about 30 minutes depending on the traffic in Duck. […]

Edward Duffey - Testimonials
Ed came through in a big, big way! Cannot recommend him enough. (2022)
"My husband lost his wedding band in the ocean (Nags Head, NC) where the waves break earlier this week. 24 hours later, I was referred to Ed Duffy. I thought it was a long shot, especially being the next day but decided it was worth a try. Ed came right out on the beach within 30 minutes of me calling him. It wasn’t 30 minutes after he had arrived on the beach that he found the ring - in the waves, buried about 10” deep in the sand! Needless to say we were all shocked and thrilled! We thought his ring was certainly lost in the ocean for good but Ed came through in a big, big way! Cannot recommend him enough."
You saved the day! (2021)
You are such a hero! You put my mind at ease the minute I spoke to you. Quick answer, quick response, and a quick find. Thank you so so much. You saved the day!
Edward Duffey, thank you so much for finding my ring! What a wonderful service you provide... (2020)
Edward Duffey, thank you so much for finding my ring! What a wonderful service you provide. I spent all day combing through the sand with my fingers to no avail… I probably turned over the area in front of my chair a dozen times. I would have never found it just a few feet away. Within an hour of calling Edward, he called me back, drove to meet us, and found the ring in just a few minutes. I’m so glad this week can be remembered as our first vacation with our 6-month-old son and not the year I lost my wedding ring!
