Lost White Gold Wedding Band in Honu Lagoon Ko Olina Resort...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I got an email Wednesday night from Pat who lives on Oahu. During a family visit from Seattle they decided to enjoy a day at Ko Olina Lagoons. Pat was snorkeling towards his sister when his white gold wedding band came off his finger in about six feet of water. He could see the ring lying in the sand at the bottom but when he dove down to get it the ring disappeared into the soft white sand. Another gentleman joined in to help but all the sand fanning wouldn’t expose the ring to them. Pat went ashore and was frantically trying to find an underwater metal detector to rent when he found TheRingFinders. After which he sent the email. I called Pat and told him I could meet him at the lagoons Friday morning to search for the ring. I decided it would be best for scuba because I can cover more ground in water deeper then my head that way. Pat showed me the general area and I started my search. After about 45 minutes and the search area complete I found only a few coins and two rings but not Pat’s. We consulted on the beach as to what direction to continue and Pat thought maybe since he was going towards his sister I should continue that direction also. It paid off. About ten minutes later I got a booming tone on the Excalibur and with one scoop of my hand there was Pats wedding ring. I popped up and yelled to Pat on the shoreline. “Got it!” Pat was extremely relieved and said his wife would be just as happy as he was at that moment. Best hobby in the world! Aloha to Pat!
