I received an email from a young lady in Seattle WA. on Dec. 26 who was in a panic over losing her beautiful diamond engagement ring in the front yard of her parents place while playing in the snow with her family and husband to be.
After reading her email I could tell that this ring meant the world to her as it put her Christmas on hold while she and her family spent Christmas day searching for her ring that was lost some where in the yard under the snow.
I contacted her and told her I’d find a treasure hunter from her area to help find the ring… After a few hours searching my contacts list I couldn’t find anyone that would take on the challenge as it was Christmas holidays and people where with their family.
I called to discuss the loss of her ring and she told me that it was given to her in September 08 and they were planning on getting married in June 09.
Talking on the phone I could tell how heart broken she was as most people are in this situation. I discussed the lost ring with my wife and she suggested that we should go and find the ring for her, as she knows how much I enjoy the search.
The morning of Dec.27 I took my brother to the airport at 4 am then drove home to pick up my wife and my metal detectors and drove (3 1/2 hours) south of Vancouver to Seattle.
After the long drive we met up at a gas station close to her parents place were the ring was lost. I followed them to the location then I asked all my usual questions on the area she was throwing snowballs and sliding down the hill on the side of her yard. I took all the information and began my grid search.
After close to 1 1/2 hours and a complete cross grid of her front yard we had no ring…
Where could it be I thought to myself, maybe she threw a snowball up on the roof, or maybe the ring got caught on her Nephews jacket and walked away from the area…? Or did she even have the ring on? Some times people end up finding their ring in their house weeks later.
The thing is if you don’t see the ring fly off your finger, its a bit of a needle in a haystack…
As I was thinking to myself about where the ring could be I walked up to a short hedge by the front door. It was about five feet long and four feet high.
I detected the one side of the hedge then the top and I started to search the other side when I heard a faint signal.
I pushed the loop of the metal detector further into the hedge and out fell the diamond ring… The last place I checked… The ring was caught in the branches of the hedge and dislodged when I pushed the loop in.
This lady was so excited and overwhelmed by the discovery! She later told me that she couldn’t think of getting married in any other ring but that one… Can you blame her?
