Several years ago, I was detecting a resort we were staying at and recovered this ring at night on the beach. Next day, on a whim, I took the ring by the frontdesk to see if anyone had lost it. I was reluctant to allow them to take pics but did.
Unbelievably, several hours later I received a call from one of the resort guests. Turns out this lady from the midwest was at the resort as part of a wedding party – her daughter was bride to be. She lost her ring at the beach the previous day. Since it was her mother’s and a family heirloom she was ecstatic to have it returned. Diamonds and gold.
