This Ring Find began on 15 September when I got a text from Jean from Los Angeles, California and was on vacation on Oahu. It said, “I lost a platinum ring at Lanikai Beach last Saturday 09/10 at 1-2pm while snorkeling in 6ft deep water (tide is low intensity sand hard and water clear but could not find it…maybe it is stuck in a coral hole. Please let me know what of think)” This was going to be a scuba hunt as during a high tide it could be 8 feet deep. Jean sent some excellent pics of the area so on 23 September I commenced a scuba hunt after the jellyfish invasion the few days prior. Man-O-Wars and Box Jellies are the worst at Lanikai! The beach access turned out to be the extreme right side of the grid search so I started there. As I worked my way north I detected the sand and did a thorough visual search of the top of each coral head. The area was really sterile so not many junk targets to dig. About 20 minutes into the dive as I was exiting a dense coral area I got a nice #9 on the Nox and in a few fans of the sand a Platinum Ring came into view. When I got back to my car I texted a pic to Jean who was back in LA. He asked if I could verify it had a triangle, heart and circle engraved inside the band. Sure enough it did. Jean didn’t want to chance losing his ring in the mail and asked if I could hold it until his return trip in December. Well today Jean & his lovely wife Clemence arrived on island and Jean got his ring back. Love the Texas hat. Aloha to Jean & Clemence!
