TheRingFinders Metal Detector Service helped reunite a lost wedding band at Cardiff beach. OPEN NOW; Call 760 889 2751
I received a call from John Hughes a fellow member of Theringfinders asking if I could do a search for a lost Platinum ring in the surf. I was already scheduled to hunt at 3:00am for another lost ring close to this location so that was no problem.
Upon arriving to the scene of the first lost ring for the 3rd time it was evident that the beach has naturally pushed in sand burying it even deeper. I swung the whole area & did not dig 1 target. So on to the next Beach I went…
By 4:45 am during low tide I was at Cardiff beach swinging my Metal Detector in the location given by the owner of the ring via google maps.I had already been bit several times by mosquitoes in merely minutes and also to make this search seem inevitabley painful is that this Ring was lost 3 days prior in 5’-8’ surf! I guess you could say it’s a shot in the dark but after the 15th mosquito bite I heard a signal that made my ears ring..I took 1 scoop in the wet sand while begging the sea gods & king neptune for this to be Johns platinum ring…((Boom)) good Karma had prevailed!
Me,John Hughes and his daughter met the owner of this special ring also named John,later in the day.He was so relieved and very greatful to have this sentimental item back on his finger where it had been for over 20 years of marriage! Irreplaceable a ring can be.
This search did require luck,Knowledge,Good Karma but I must thank the Gods of the sea for their help in this recovery.
