Lost Lady's Gold Engagement Ring – Corolla Beach - Outer Banks, NC – Found

  • from Kitty Hawk (North Carolina, United States)

I had just returned from doing some detecting on Kitty Hawk beach.  I hadn’t gotten out of the truck when I received a call from Monica.  She said that her sister-in-law had lost her wedding set on the beach.  They had found the wedding band but could not find the engagement ring.  I asked her to describe the situation and after she did I realized that I better go right away…a storm was closing in.

As I drove up through Southern Shores and Duck, it began  raining, very hard.  I was concerned that with the rain we might lose our advantage of finding the ring quickly or that we couldn’t get out on the beach due to lightning!

As I left the Duck area and started up through Corolla the storm subsided.  Laura met me at the beach house and led me to the beach where Monica and her husband Fred where waiting.  They had not moved from the spot.

As I fired up the Minelab Equinox 800, I told them that I would begin where the wedding band was found and spread out the search from there.  15 seconds later, I had a solid 11 on the machine and a very good signal.  I reached down with my hand and grabbed a fistful of sand.  Just then the clear sparkle of 5 diamonds appeared and Laura began shouting and jumping around.

Another happy family.

    Hello someone told me to reach out to you. I lost both my wedding ring and a birthstone ring in Outer Banks this week. We were at milepost 14.5 Epstein beach access to the left of the lifeguard chair. I would greatly appreciate any help!
