This ring find began when I got a tearful call from Sandy visiting Hawaii from Irvine, California. After finding the “Rock of Ages” That’s the name I gave the Diamond as it was the biggest I’ve ever seen or found. The client sent me a nice text and described their dilemma and the story is below.
Sent from my iPhone Sandy and Steve met in Hawaii in 1993- Steve was born and raised here, and Sandy was on a high school graduation trip from Orange County, CA. They kept in touch via letters and email until she came back out in 1999 and they began dating. They were married in Rancho Palos Verdes in 2005. Steve designed her engagement ring specifically, using a family heirloom center stone (a rare miner’s emerald cut 2.7 carat diamond from the 1920’s) and building around it with other diamonds, and a platinum band.
They were back visiting with their two kids, playing catch on Lanikai Beach when the ring flew off Sandy’s finger in knee deep water. A frantic three hour search ensued, with a number of good-hearted local residents helping out- but as the sun set they had no luck.
Sandy and Steve Googled lost rings and discovers Ring Finders. They called early the next morning and Joe said he would personally come out and take a look (probably feeling empathetic to Sandy’s tearful plea). After an exhaustive search of the area and right before giving up, Joe found the ring and set off a celebration and joyful tears from Sandy.
From Steve and Sandy- we would absolutely endorse Joe- not just because he found our ring but for how responsive and considerate he was. I don’t know what we would have done without him- he saved our trip and a family jewel that we can now pass on to our kids. Thank you so much Joe!!!=
I couldn’t have said it any better. Aloha to Sandy & Steve!
