Lost Gold Wedding Band at Ala Moana Beach Park...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I received a text from David on his honeymoon from Switzerland. While enjoying the cool waters of Ala Moana Beach Park and discussing with his lovely wife Corinne that his Wedding Band felt loose and in his next breath the ring fell off in waist deep water. He tried fruitlessly for over an hour to find his ring in the shallow water but the sand consumed it. I told David I would grab my Nox and gear and head straight down. It was only 15 minutes away and surprisingly there was parking adjacent to where David lost his Wedding Band. When I arrived David helped me draw some grid lines in the sand and then I entered the water to hunt. First target was a 20-21 Lincoln Cent. Then on about the fifth grid line I got another 20-21 signal and after missing the target three times I looked in the scoop expecting the penny when low and behold there was David’s 18k Gold Wedding Band. Got to dig those pennies folks. After a few hugs and Mahalos David and Corinne graciously thanked me for saving their honeymoon. Aloha to David & Corinne!
