Received a call from Trevor that he lost his wedding ring while vacationing in Indio. He was playing catch in the backyard and at one point threw his glove in the air. When the glove left his hand, so did his ring! The ring disappeared somewhere in the grass. After renting a metal detector with no luck, he found ring finders and gave me a call. After 30 minutes of searching, I located the ring about 30 feet from the area we thought it would be, 14k White Gold ring. Trevor wasn’t available when I found the ring but mailed it out to him. Trevor was thrilled the ring came back to him, another successful return!
I was getting some fresh air at the beach and doing some metal detecting recently. As I was cleaning the beach during a very low tide, I hit a nice clear signal and out popped a BEAUTIFUL diamond/platinum engagement ring about 10 inches down in the sand. It’s probably the nicest ring I have found. Knowing that someone was really missing this ring, I put up several ads that a ring had been found. Two days later I was contacted by an individual who had lost a ring and described it in the right location and the exact description of the ring! After a few texts it was clear we had found the owner! The story was, she had lost the ring while vacationing with her family in Carlsbad a few days before. She had been playing with her kids in the waves when she felt the ring fly off into the surf. After some devastating moments and some frantic searching, it was clear that her engagement ring was lost.
She was beyond ecstatic that I had found the missing ring. Unbelievable really. Turns out she was celebrating her anniversary the day after we spoke. Because she lived in another state and was only here on vacation, I mailed the ring to her as soon as possible and she said it was the best anniversary present she could have received. A great return, so happy she has her beautiful ring back in her possession and best of luck to her and her husband.
I was metal detecting at the beach and working some nice erosion. As I headed back to my truck a man in his 20’s approaches me and he looks pretty down. He says his wife lost her wedding ring earlier in the day and asked if I could help. OF COURSE I CAN HELP~! Would love to. As we head over to the location I notice the wife with her arms folded looking miserable. I said “How are you doing?” No response from the woman. She was falling apart. So he tells me the story. 5 hours earlier she had put 4 rings in a bag to make sure she didn’t lose them. 2 Silver rings from her friend, her gold wedding band, and her diamond engagement ring. When she left the beach she shook out the blanket (and bag?) and went home. She realized NO RINGS when she got home and drove back to the beach fearing the worst. Using their hands they sifted the entire area with no luck.
By now there was a small crowd of on-lookers. I started to grid the area. My first hit, SILVER RING! She couldn’t believe it. Second hit, the other SILVER RING! They were getting super excited. 3rd hit, zinc penny. 4th hit, gold wedding band! a few moments later I got a nice signal, about 3-4 inches deep I pulled out the diamond ring. She grabbed the ring, went to her knees and put her hands to her face, and cried. After a few minutes, she jumped up and gave me a huge bear hug. The diamond in her ring was the same diamond from her grandmother’s ring, irreplaceable. She gave me another hug, ecstatic the rings were found. What a great day and return!
