Lost 3 Diamonds & Platinum Wedding Rings at Ko Olina Resort...FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Dave Sheldon our foremost Ring Finder on Maui. Dave passed me a number for a couple from Los Angeles that had lost 3 Platinum & Diamond Wedding Rings in the sand at Ulua Lagoon Ko Olina Resort. I immediately called the number and Sarote answered and told me he was on the beach with his wife Tanya and their young son when a gust of wind blew their umbrella down. Tanya jumped up to grab the umbrella and didn’t realize until she sat back down that her 3 wedding rings she had placed on the lap of her dress were gone. They searched and other friendly tourists on the beach pitched in but the rings were gone. I told Sarote to relax in the area, stop searching and I would be there in 30 minutes to recover their rings. I assured him in the dry sand we shouldn’t have any problem at all. When I arrived Sarote had a parking space reserved for me just up from where the rings were lost. That was convenient. I met Sarote’s lovely wife Tanya and she reenacted to me what occurred. I started my grid search and on the first leg nothing. This beach is very noisy on the Excal from EMI so you have to listen carefully. Second leg found a deep crusty penny. I knew it wasn’t the rings but wanted to clear the grid. On the fourth leg and actually out of the area Tanya thought the ring would be I got an excellent tone. One scoop down and there was the first ring. Sarote was in awe and came over to retrieve it. I said wait there I hear another target in the hole. Another scoop and two more rings appeared. Tanya and Sarote were overcome with joy and praised my services. I told them the equipment is very good as long as you know how to use it. With all three rings back on her fingers Sarote said Thank you for saving our vacation. We took some pictures and I bid them a tremendous vacation for the rest of their time in Hawaii. Aloha to Tanya & Sarote.
