I met Jess yesterday after she called me earlier in the week to find her platinum diamond ring. She told me she had lost the ring while doing yard work. I could sense the desperation in her voice and I knew I had to do all I could to help her find the ring. After setting up a time over the phone I went to her beautiful home and spent several hours searching for the ring with no success. After another hour went by I decided to use my Pinpointer to more accurately search around her pool and the lattice around her deck, which were places I couldn’t reach with my detector. I asked Jess more questions about what she was doing when she noticed her ring was missing and while we were talking I could see around the decking where the lattice was a bit loose, so I asked her if I could pull it back to look underneath the deck. She agreed, so I got down and pulled the lattice back and reached my hand in to push away some vines and I saw a glint of metal. After moving more leaves and vines back I saw what we had been looking for! Low and behold, there was her diamond platinum ring.
It was such an emotional thing for me to give her the ring, but that didn’t hold a candle to the emotions that she felt, I’m sure. She overflowed with tears and gave me the biggest bear hug I’ve ever had! Wow!! It was worth all the frustration of the time it took to find the ring. So don’t give up until all the avenues have been exhausted and don’t lose hope.
This was my first search as a member of The Ring Finders and I hope to have many more successful stories to share.
