Lost Tungsten Wedding Band at Honu Lagoon...FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Adam from Victoria, Canada on Sunday. While enjoying the day in the cool waters of Honu Lagoon and playing catch with his lovely wife Kaitlin. During a throw Kaitlin’s Wedding Band came off in chest deep water. Adam immediately took notice to where they were in the water in reference to the shoreline. Marriott personnel told them about my services and how to reach me. I told Adam I’d be there around 8am the next morning as I had another ring hunt in Lagoon 1 & 4. That morning I finished early at Lagoon 1 and decided to use the picture Adam texted me to commence the ring find. As I approached the area I saw a trench cut into the sand shaped like an arrow and recognized this as a mark Adam must have left for a reference point. I started a few grid lines to the North and worked my way towards that trench. When I was nearly directly out from the trench I got a nice tone on the Excalibur and one scoop later there was the glistening ring in my scoop. Adam had told me there was an engraving that said, “and together we will walk” on the inside of the ring. Sure enough that’s what it said so I texted them the good news. We met in the public parking lot for the return and you can see it was all smiles. Aloha to Kaitlin & Adam!

    Thank you so much Joe for finding my ring so quickly! It was extra stressful to lose it the day before we left Hawai’i to return home, so your speedy response was very much appreciated. Thanks again!

    Thanks so much for your help. Kaitlin was so upset when her ring came off. We had a bunch of people coming in to help us look for it when we heard about you and immediately reached out! You saved our lovely vacation from having a serious dark cloud over it!
