Lost Heirloom Gold & Diamond Ring at Ulua Lagoon Ko Olina Resort...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began this afternoon when I got a call from Anthony who is from San Francisco California and was on vacation.  While Anthony and his girlfriend Abi were enjoying the cool waters of Ulua Lagoon Abi’s heirloom Gold and Diamond Ring she got from her Grandmother fell off in shallow water and disappeared.  An immediate search with googles was hopeless as the ring was covered in the fine sand of the lagoon.  Anthony found me on a Google search and I had just returned from a Chinese New Year lunch with my wife Wendy.  I told Anthony to just relax on the beach and I would grab my detecting gear and head right down.  Traffic was a breeze so I made it there in around 30 minutes.  Anthony was waiting on the beach for me and Abi was in the water near where she had lost the ring.  I started a grid search to the South of Abi and when I was in about thigh deep water I got a nice 12-13 tone on the Nox and in one scoop there was Abi’s heirloom ring in the scoop.  They hadn’t told me about the diamond so I told Abi, “This can’t be your ring.”  She immediately exclaimed when it came into view, That’s certainly it!”  I could see a few tears of relief as we hugged.  Elapsed time 45 seconds.  They aren’t always this quick.  Aloha to Abi & Anthony!

    Thank you so much Joe!
    You saved us from a potential horrible day. Joe was quick to respond to us and was on his way as soon as we hung up. Joe not only communicated every step of the way but gave us the confidence we needed as he assured us he would confidently find it as it was in the shallow water. Mahalo Joe! You’re amazing! Hope we meet again but hopefully not with any missing ring.
