I received a message from a girl whose mom had lost her diamond wedding on the beach the day before. Although they were unable to meet me the following day at the beach,she was able to give me some details as to the approximate location according to landmarks.
I arrived early the next morning just before sunrise and noticed a lifeguard as she described and began my grid pattern search of the area with my metal detector. Although I searched the area and beyond for hours I had no luck locating the ring but did find a large amount of coins and trash items so I was confident that another detectorist had not found it before me but had to call it a day as the daily crowds were arriving. I messaged them letting them know I did not find it but would return the next day to try again,
I decided for the second search I would use my new White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector which not only detects deeper in the sand but also is excellent at recovery smaller items or offset items like a ring on its side in the sand. I searched most of the area as the day before and found more coins and trash but no ring so I started searching the way off the beach to the stairs and started digging more signals. Just as I was going to throw in the towel one of those signals turned out to be her diamond ring! When I called and told her I found it up by the stairs she was surprised as she really thought it was in the other area but you just never know? We meant a couple hours later for a very happy and thankful return. Another happy customer! Another great day of metal detecting!
