Gold & Diamond Stud Earring Lost - Found by Del Witters

from Portland (Oregon, United States)

Cathy lost one earring 4 months ago while cutting brush on her acreage when the protective headphones she was wearing were ripped off her head by a branch. She immediately touched her ears and noticed the large diamond stud was gone; checking the ground and clothes were unsuccessful. Her neighbor tried with his metal detector but couldn’t find it. For weeks she searched on hands and knees without luck and figured it was gone forever. A couple months ago she got my info from a friend but didn’t call until today. I told her gold earring studs are extremely difficult to find without the right detector but that I owned several and one was designed to detect small natural gold which should work on her earring. My call-out fee was so reasonable that she decided to take a chance, “you’re my last hope”. Using the stock 5×10″ coil I uncovered a few items but no earring. There was some large deep metal I detected and I was concerned that it might mask the small stud so I switched to my 4×7″ coil for better separation. On my first grid with the small coil and within inches of the large metal object I got a signal that required further investigation. With the pinpointer on max sensitivity I barely detected an object and at 1/2″ deep was the earring! Cathy was flabbergasted, she just kept staring back and forth at the recovery spot and the earring while she laughed, smiled ear-to-ear, and asked questions of how… happy would be an understatement! She walked to the house clasping the earring with both hands while she told me that she only gave the search a 10% chance. I told her that with the right tools, user knowledge, and a little luck it’s generally 100% as long as it’s in the area searched.

She said finding her stud earring was the perfect Christmas gift and she’ll be talking about it for months. Thank you for the call Cathy and Merry Christmas!

    Aloha! Good job on the recovery:-) I’m curious to what detector you used. I’m guessing the Gold Bug? Mahalo

      I use a Makro Gold Racer (56 kHz), it has more discrim than the Gold Bug II I use to own and I believe it’s just as sensitive to small gold.
