22K Gold Ring Found for Owner, Falmouth, Massachusetts

  • from Falmouth (Massachusetts, United States)

Will was on his way back home to Canada.  His 22K gold ring wasn’t.  It was buried at an uncertain location on the beach.

Yesterday, a late evening call from Will alerted me to the fact that he’d lost his ring somewhere in dry sand or in the water while they were enjoying a day on the sand and in the surf.  I arranged to meet him early today and he showed me the areas he expected the ring to be: a dry sand area where he’d played ‘spike ball’, an area where the family sunned on the dry sand, and a water area where he’d been swimming.  Will had asked a detectorist who happened by to scan the first area, with no results.  The water seemed like the next best bet so I started there, working parallel to shore from neck-deep in toward the beach.  After about two hours with no results I went ashore and scanned the spike-ball and sunning areas but came up with nothing but some trash.  In the meantime, Will and family had to depart for home.  I’d assured him that if I found the ring I’d arrange to send it back to him.

Back in the water, I started in the middle of the search area, working in- and off-shore toward one side until I reached the edge.  I then expanded the search area and within a few minutes got a nice solid signal.  I sank the scoop deep and a few seconds later was looking Will’s buttery-gold ring sitting in a scoopful of gravelly cobbles.  Success!

The next step will be to ship the ring home.  I had a great time on this search and I’m elated that I’ll be able soon to re-unite Will and his ring!

    I lost my gold wedding band and got in touch with Brian late in the evening to see if he would take the job. He said yes, but there was a huge storm overnight and I was only able to meet him the following morning to give him a search area on land and in the water before I had to leave for home. He took in all the info, made judgements about where it was most likely to be and got to work. As we left he was in the ocean working back and forth in his search grid. When I got an email later that day that he found it I was flabbergasted. I couldn’t stop smiling. Huge thank you to Brian for doing what I thought was impossible and re-uniting me with the ring.

    1. Will, I’m honored that I was able to add a happy ending to your story. Thanks to you for seeking out the RingFinders!
