I received a phone call from Shayna on Wednesday evening (August 18, 2021) stating that she had lost her engagement ring on Monday while walking in her yard in Ashville, Alabama. Shayna and her fiancé tried looking for it with a metal detector, but were unable to find it. I was off on Friday, so we arranged for a search that morning.
I arrived at their home in Ashville, AL on Friday, August 20, 2021. Shayna showed me the area in her yard where she thought the ring had slid off her finger. She told me that the ring was 10k rose gold with diamonds. It was her fiancé’s grandmother’s ring. I began a grid search with my Minelab Equinox 800. After clearing the general area Shayna told me that the ring should be in, I expanded my grid search. Soon after, Shayna told me that she had to be honest and that it was actually a ring toss. She said that she had immediately regretted throwing the ring. This happens a lot; people have disagreements and sometimes rings go flying. We’re all human.
With this new information, I had Shayna show me exactly where she was walking and how she tossed the ring. It was a sideways toss. I also had her fiancé show me where he remembered her standing when it happened. Her fiancé said that she was about 5-10 feet further than Shayna remembered, which was in an area I hadn’t searched yet. I expanded my grid search in that direction and soon after I found Shayna’s ring! The grass was on the taller side, so it easily hid that beautiful 10 karat rose gold engagement ring. Both Shayna and her fiancé were relieved and glad to have it back!
