I went out for a dive with a friend Joe who is also a ring finder and we managed to find two rings that day in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
The next day I received a call from Joe he told me that he was checking Craigslist’s lost & found and there was a post about a week earlier. Lost Man’s Wedding Ring in Waikiki. On April 2 I lost my wedding ring in the Waikiki Beach area please keep an eye out and contact me if you do find one…Thank You Matt.
Waikiki Beach is a large beach with many resort’s the chance of this being Matt’s ring was a long shot and I thought to myself this would be amazing if this was his. I contacted Matt and told him that I found a ring on Waikiki beach at the Hilton in about 4 feet of water he told me that’s where I lost my ring I asked Matt to give me the description of the engraving on the inside of the ring and I’ll see if it’s a match. I told Matt that we have a match! I think at first Matt thought this was some kind of Craigslist scam. He asked if I could send him a picture so I sent the picture and he confirmed it was a match. It was about midnight where Matt lives in Pennsylvania when I first responded to his post on craigslist apparently he had already returned home from his vacation and I’m sure he thought he would never see his wedding ring again but as luck would have it the ring is back on his finger.
Thanks to Joe for spotting the Craigslist posting and a little luck for finding Matt’s ring.
