Lost Gold Wedding Band at Kaimana Beach, Waikiki...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find was from a craigslist alert I got last night at 8PM. The ad said lost my white gold wedding ring at Kaimana Beach this afternoon ten feet into the water. The ad was placed 8 minutes before my alert so I called the number and got Jamie from Ohio who was attending Law School on Island. Jamie told me while playing catch with a football he fell into the shallow water catching the football but losing his white gold wedding ring in the process. Several of his fellow classmates looked but the sand swallowed his ring completely and they couldn’t find it. I told Jamie to take his craigslist ad down immediately so no other detectorists go to the beach and hunt. Jamie described where in the water I should look and I told him I would check the tides to see if it could wait until the morning. When I looked the tide was on an extreme low and living ten minutes away I grabbed my gear and head lamp and cruised down to the beach. My daughter Korin was with me so I gave her my phone, put her in the life guard shack and with a flashlight told her to play Pokemon Go while I did my hunt. I walked down from the shower area as Jamie had described and walked into the shallow water. Not 15 seconds had gone by when I heard an excellent tone and two scoops down bingo there was Jamie’s ring. I immediately called Jamie but his phone went to voicemail. I left a message saying I found the ring and we could meet the next day for return. When Jamie called the next morning he was so excited that I got him out of the dog house and being a submarine veteran he was able to meet me on base to retrieve his ring. He had never been on Pearl Harbor so after getting his ring he went on a tour of the submarine base. I’m sure that brought back some great memories of his time in the fleet. Aloha to Jamie.
