Lost wedding band in Rouge River, Rockford Michigan

  • from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

Got a call from Ashley S. last week that her husband, Nick S. was tubing in the river and came across a big tree branch that he tried to push away while floating down the rapids. His ring got caught on the branch and popped off. Although the water was crystal clear and shallow the current was too fast and he could not find it. My detector friend Dave Boyer and I went into the river and headed to the second bridge are per Nicks instructions. After searching the rocky bottom for a couple of hours with no ring we met up with Ashley and Nick. Nick got into the water with us and started orienting himself and discovered we were in the wrong area. We started looking in the area where the branch was but still didn’t find his ring. Wedding rings have special meanings to people and Nicks ring was no different but because it was a Titanium ring he felt he could get another one with not a lot of expense. As detectors we come across a lot of Titanium, Tungsten and Stainless Steel rings so I suggested that he pick one of mine out that would fit him. He found one that was like his old ring and it fit. We now have a happy husband and a happier wife. Congratulations to the both of you.
