Lost Tungsten Wedding Band in the sand behind the Duke Kahanamoku Statue at Waikiki Beach...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when my fellow ring finder Don referred Marquis from Baton Rouge Louisiana to give me a call as I live 10 minutes from Waikiki Beach. Marquis told me he was on his honeymoon celebrating in Waikiki and when he picked up his gear as he was leaving the Beach, his Black Tungsten Wedding Band must have fallen out. He said they were directly behind the Duke Statue in the dry sand. I unfortunately, had just gotten dressed to attend a belated Father’s Day Dinner Party at Ala Moana which is minutes from Waikiki. I promised Marquis I’d bring my detecting gear with me and as soon as dinner was over my wife and I would stop by and recover his ring. Around 8:30PM Marquis texted that he was waiting at the Duke Beach. I texted him we were finishing dessert and I’d be on my way shortly. Thankfully, when we arrived there was one stall of HPD parking open and I parked there. From there I could see Marquis standing under the Duke Statue. I asked my wife to wait in the car as I suspected this would be a quick hunt and it was. A mere 5 minutes later I was heading home. Marquis was shocked how quick the recovery happened and exclaimed, “Joe your a Legend” Not exactly but go ahead and feel that way. If I understood him correctly his wife didn’t know and they would be flying home in the morning. Aloha to Marquis!
