I received a call from a woman who had lost her platinum diamond ring that was handed down to her from her grandmother. She explained that while attending a wedding event at a beach front resort she was hitting a beachball and the ring had flown off her finger. Although everyone started searching the sand for the ring at the time it could not be found. Not wanting to give up the resort had contacted some local authorities having metal detectors and searched the area for hours with no success. Viewing the internet weeks later she came across a story about a doctor losing an engagement ring on the beach and one of our members of The Ring finders had found the ring for him. living in NJ she searched for a member in her area and contacted me and we setup a time to meet,contacted the resort and met the next day. Arriving at the resorts private beach area where the ring was lost(approx 60’x80′) I setup my Whites V3i detector accepting all foil and pulltab signals since platinum will respond in this trash target area.Digging alot of trash targets and about 3/4 of the way done the area I received a foil signal with a vdi of 7 and found the ring in my scoop! I immediately contacted the owner and broke the good news to her,needless to say she was very excited. We met up an hour later and I presented her with her lost family heirloom. he was very interested in the service we provide and accepted some of my advertising to get out to friends and presented me with a very nice reward,Thankyou very much Joyce! 2012 season is off to a great start!
