Last Saturday, Carl was working around his home in San Mateo County. After a full day of chores, he noticed that his platinum wedding ring was missing. The good news was, he hadn’t left his property all day, so he knew the ring had to be somewhere in the yard. The other good news was, he found RingFinders, the metal detector experts.
Two of us arrived to give Carl’s property a thorough search. In some cases, the recovery takes hours of searching, but not this time. We pulled Carl’s platinum wedding band out of the thick grass on the side of his home within about ten minutes.
Because rings are so dense, when they fall they immediately sink down to the ground level beneath all the blades of grass, where they are practically invisible. Carl’s lawn was healthy and thick, so the ring was completely hidden, even when you looked straight at it. But metal detectors can “see” right through grass, dirt and sand to find missing rings.
