Handmade 14k Band Lost in Columbia River, Portland Oregon (found) by Del Witters


Waist deep search along 60 yards of Columbia River beach nets return… the story in Raquel’s words!

Raquel and Daniel; we met almost 2.5 years ago and after a little over a year of long distance, Daniel managed to make it to Portland so we could finally live in the same city. We didn’t have a traditional fancy wedding. The closest thing to a traditional wedding was the fact that we exchanged wedding bands. The special thing about them is that we made them for each other. Daniel made mine, and I made his. Sentimentally, they are priceless.

Fast forward 11-months, to almost our one year anniversary. We spent a lovely Sunday with friends on the Columbia River and at some point Daniel’s ring slipped off of his finger. We tried looking for it but had no luck, the water was murky and our time on the river was running out. We were pretty sure it was gone forever but with a stroke of Internet magic we found The Ring Finders, and got in touch with Del. His kindness, knowledge and positivity saved the day!! After a mini boat paddle to the island and a hike, we landed on the spot, gave him some information, and in a little over an hour he found Daniel’s ring!!! It was incredible! We practically did cartwheels on the beach. He is amazing!!! Thank you!!!

I’m ecstatic that I could return your ring before your first anniversary… a memorable recovery with two great people!
I forgot my video camera… their reaction as I held Daniel’s ring up from 20 yards away tells the story of this service and I’ll never tire of it, Thank you!
