Wedding Day Save, North Myrtle Beach SC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Matt Fry (TRF Myrtle Beach) called me saying he had just received a call for a lost ring in my area. He gave me Craig and Ashley’s phone numbers, and details on what happened and where it happened. I called Craig and got a few more details on their location and was on my way.
When I walked out on the beach, I saw the family standing in the dry sand, excited that I was there. The story goes that Craig and Ashley were getting married on the beach and Ashley’s son, Anthony, was the ring bearer. The way I understand it, as Anthony was handing the wedding band to Craig to place on Ashley’s finger, he dropped it in the soft sand, oops!!! I didn’t ask, but I assume the ceremony went forward without the wedding band. When I got to the spot the ring was dropped, I could tell the family had frantically searched the sand as there was a huge pile of sand that had been moved around. I turned on the machine, made two swings, and got a great tone on the Equinox 800 with an ID of 6 on the screen. Perfect number for the 14K white gold wedding band, maybe size 5-6, I was looking for. I ended up taking 3 small scoops of sand off the top of the pile before I saw her ring shining up at me from the bottom of the scoop. I took the ring out and handed it to Craig to verify, yep, we had the right one!!! Craig turned around and gave it to Ashely, and she wasted no time putting it back on her finger. It’s a great feeling to get that lost treasure back where it belongs.
As we got the pictures done, and walking back to the parking lot, Ashley’s daughter, Arial stopped, looked at me, and said; “I will never forget you.” Wow, that was awesome!
Craig, Ashley, Anthony, Craig Jr, Arial, and Ashley’s parents, it was indeed my pleasure to meet you all and help return your precious ring. Best of luck to all.

    Thanks for the technical info Jim… I just got an Equinox 800 (waiting for the waterproof headphones next week) and knowing the reading of this ring may help me in the future. Sounds like you really saved the day for this couple.
