Lost Black Diamond Baguettes Gold Wedding Band at Kailua Beach...FOUND!!!

from Oahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a phone call from Claudia who was visiting Kailua Beach from New York City. Claudia explained that she walked out into knee deep water with her husband Andrew and her ring just fell off her finger. They were on a late honeymoon and I wasn’t going to let this ruin it. I told her I was already packed so I could be there in 30-45 minutes. She said, “Great thank you so much”. En-route to Kailua Claudia texted me that another detectorist was on the beach and making her nervous. I told her I was 10 minutes away and no worries. When I arrived she met me in the parking lot. I grabbed my gear and we went down to the beach. Andrew was watching the area and I asked him to join me in the water. It was high tide and a steady surf was rolling in. See pic background. Andrew walked out to the spot he thought they were at. I literally swung the detector to the left and got a sweet gold growling tone. One quick scoop in the surf and there was Claudia’s gorgeous Black Diamond Baguettes in white gold ring glistening in my scoop. Elapsed time 10 seconds!!! I gave Claudia a thumbs up sign and started walking ashore with the ring. That was truly miraculous. I wasn’t looking forward to swinging in the surf zone. Claudia couldn’t believe her eyes and the quickness of the recovery. Wish they all could be this easy! Aloha to Claudia & Andrew!
