A very precious earing, but even more valuable for sentimental reasons, fell off the owners ear while she was carrying her toddler over her shoulder. Thanks to advances in metal detecting technology, small targets are not a problem. Getting over the target is another story.

It was where they had searched on their own, but it took The Ring Finders to methodically retrace and eliminate search areas until we ended up exactly on top of the target.
