Lost ring found in Mountain View CALast week, TK was playing volleyball with friends at work. When the ball came his way, he set it for another player to hit over the net. As he hit the ball up with both hands, he saw his platinum wedding ring fly off his finger into the sand.

TK and his teammates searched the sand, but could not find the ring. He went online to look up metal detector rentals, but he was concerned that it might be hard to learn how to use a rented metal detector in time to find his ring. Then he found TheRingFinders.

I met TK at his workplace on Sunday. When he showed me the volleyball court,  we noticed that the sand was quite deep: I dug down 10 inches/25 cm and still didn’t find the bottom. This could have been a problem, because TK’s ring was platinum, which is harder to detect than the same size ring in silver or gold. If the ring had been pushed deep by searchers or other players, it could have been a difficult search.

But fortune was smiling on us that day. The sand was free of the junk targets you would find at a public beach, things like pull tabs, foil and bottle caps. After a few minutes, I got a weak signal. At first the signal wouldn’t repeat, which is usually an indication of a junk target. But because it was the only target so far, I kept swinging my metal detector in that area. Once I swung slow and low enough, the signal repeated, and my first scoop pulled TK’s ring up from about 4-5 inches beneath the surface.

Renting a metal detector can be a difficult way to find lost rings and jewelry. TheRingFinders make finding your lost ring easy!

  1. Good find in deep sand!! I found two platinum rings a few weeks ago in the mediterranean sea (Spain) but the target signal was not as strong as I would have suspected (less than gold). Fortunately, there was no other junk targets in the area. Platinum can be difficult….
