Over the holidays, I received a call from Kevin who had lost his gold wedding ring in the snow, while he was playing with his kids. I got the directions to his home and he met me at the door. Kevin explained how his ring was custom made and is one of a kind as the jeweler has retired and it can’t be duplicated. So, besides the obvious emotional attachment to this ring there is also the fact that it just isn’t replaceable at any cost.
When he showed me the area I thought that it would be quite easy as it was a fenced back yard with no bushes but had a hill that they use for sledding. I had a different opinion though as soon as I turned my detector on, my Garrett ATPro went wild from some source of EMI ( electrical magnetic interference). I determined that there was a shallow electric supply running through the search area from the house to the garage. I reduced the sensitivity to half and changed frequencies then re- ground balanced and it seemed to the trick. Now that problem was resolved I was off to start my grid search. I surveyed the area for a good starting point which only took a minute as the area was relatively rectangular and I wanted to start at the base of the hill. I expected the VDI to be in the range of 45 to 65 depending on the mass of the gold ring so I kept iron discrimination to 35 and used Pro Mode Coin along with iron Audio On.
I started my grid search and after 3 passes of the coil got a signal, the VDI read 45. I couldn’t get that lucky I thought, I scratched through the packed snow and out popped this amazing ring. I am so happy that I was able to find it for Kevin and as you can see he was relieved and thrilled to get it back again. Kevin said, the recovery of this very special ring made their holiday season for them.
Thank you for trusting The Ring Finders and me to recover your valuable ring for you Kevin.
