Lost Gold Platinum & Diamonds Wedding Ring at Nanakuli Beach...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I got a call from Jill who lives in Waialua, she was looking for a metal detector rental. She explained that sometime the day before while her husband Steve and her were on Nanakuli Beach just enjoying the day she realized when she got home that the chair pocket where she had placed her ring was empty. Steve and Jill also noticed a hole in the pocket. They went back to look but were unsuccessful as the drop area wasn’t for certain. It happened where they were sitting or the walk back to their vehicle. That’s when Jill called me. I told her that you can’t just rent a detector and go hunting in Hawaii. I offered my services but she was reluctant at first and was going to call another rental place. She called me back 5 minutes later and decided it probably would be best if I met them at the beach. Nanakuli is a huge beach so I told them to meet me at the Electric Beach Parking lot and we would proceed from there. It took me about 30 minutes to get there. Thankfully we met because the area they were talking about wasn’t well known to me. Thankfully they didn’t tell anyone either this side of the island can be a challenge. We walked down to the area they were sitting. I noticed the high tide came way up on the beach and went into the grid. I was praying the ring didn’t get sucked down to the low tide line as that would have been a major challenge to detect as the slope is severe. I started on the extreme North side of my grid from land to sea. The area is a bit noisy with the power plant nearby. My first target was lost so I assumed it wasn’t the ring. For some reason on the second leg, away from the sea, I decided to go outside my grid and good thing because I got a screaming target and 2 scoops down was Jill’s ring. WOW! I was shocked to find it that fast and in that spot. We decided it must have fallen out as they were leaving as this was outside the grid they were sitting in. I could see the relief on Steve & Jill’s faces and they were very thankful. Busy weekend with three ring finds. Aloha to Steve & Jill!
