This story is about a lady who lost her diamond earring in her garden, it was lost for over 1 year. Her husband was driving to work one morning and on the radio he heard an interview on my ”Finders” service and wrote down my number and called me.
He told me about his wife’s earring and how much it bothered her that she lost it in the garden and she couldn’t find it. She knew it was there some where, but where?
Of course I was up for the challenge but I knew it would be a tough one as diamond earrings have to be the hardest thing to search for as there is very little gold on the post, so that makes it very difficult to find.
When I arrived the lady showed me the area of the garden where she believed her earring was lost. She tells me that at one time she was digging around a shrub and felt her earring get caught on a branch, but she never thought to check and see if it was still there.
Due to the time (1 year +) she wasn’t sure which shrub it was… Now the search begins!
I start with my Whites V-Sat gold detector and spend a good two hours along side of the bushes and no luck. Unfortunately the shrubs were close to the side of the house as you can see in the picture above and this was impossible to search as my detector was picking up the metal framing.
My next step was to move the dirt away from the house so I wouldn’t have any interference with my detector. I made 6 piles of dirt and searched each pile, the last pile I received a faint signal and as I was sifting through the dirt I found her earring…
I Love my job!
