This ring find began when I got a frantic call from Samantha from Sydney, Australia. While she was playing with her child on the beach her Engagement ring at some point fell off. She was in a rather confined area but she wasn’t exactly sure when or where it exactly came off. I was at work but told her I’d have my wife Wendy bring my Excalibur II metal detector to my work then I’d be right over but it would be at least 45 minutes because its just over 30 miles away. Samantha assured me she’d wait on the beach until I arrived. My wife delivered the Excal in record time and I got on my way to the resort. Samantha met me on the beach and explained it was her 6th Anniversary and her husband who was in the US Navy was deployed. She was totally devastated that she had lost the ring. I told her I was very confident we would find her ring. I asked her to hold my pin-pointer until I had a target. I wanted her to regain her composure and helping me would do just that. First target in the sand was a bent piece of aluminum. As I was getting towards the center of the grid I got a real nice tone. I asked Samantha to hand me the pin-pointer so I wouldn’t knock the diamond off her ring. Surprisingly it was her ring and it was at least four inches into the sand. She must have stepped on it while looking for it. Tears of joy started streaming down her face and Samantha was obviously so shocked her ring was found so quickly. These are the best hunts. Quick & painless. Aloha to Samantha!
