This ring find started Weds 13 April while I was in San Diego for a business meeting. I got a text from Adam of Vancouver, Washington. While in two feet of water at Waikiki Beach his Gold Wedding Band fell off. With a slight South swell and the waves rolling up on the beach his ring disappeared immediately. I phoned Adam and told him I was in San Diego and wouldn’t be home until Friday. This Waikiki Beach area is the most heaviest metal detected bar none. My fear was it would be found in no time with very little chance of return. Adam sent me a photo of the exact spot he was standing in the water when his ring fell off.
When I returned on Friday in the early afternoon I had to run out to Ko Olina and retrieve a Platinum ring that called before Adam. After that successful recovery I jumped in my truck and headed for Waikiki. Still before work lets out I was able to find parking at the Zoo and then headed for Adam’s pictured area of Waikiki. I lined up a little West of the tree next to the Shave Ice sign and started my in and out search. The area was sterile. On about my sixth leg coming in on the Shave Ice sign I got a nice tone in the wave curl. One scoop down nothing. Second scoop I couldn’t believe it a pretty sparkling in the sun Gold “Ben Bridge” Wedding Band. I was in shock after three days no detectorist found this ring. The Ring Finders score #2 for the day. I went back to my truck and called Adam in Vancouver and asked if he knew what brand his ring was. He initially said “No”. Then his wife said I’ll bet its the same as mine and she shouted out “Ben Bridge”. No worries that’s the ring I found. “Unbelievable”, they both said. I’ll get it in the mail to you in the morning. As you can see in the first pic the ring is back with Adam. Aloha to Adam.
