Lost Platinum & Diamonds Ring at Nai'a Lagoon Ko Olina...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I got a call from Chad who was on a family vacation from Bountiful, Utah and staying at the Marriot Beach Club at Ko Olina.  While Chad and his lovely wife Wendy were playing catch with a football in the shallow waters of Nai’a Lagoon, Wendy noticed her ring was missing from her finger.  Not knowing exactly when it fell off the search area was rather large but only waist high and the tide was going out.  Chad passed the phone to Wendy for some more details about the search.  I just had lunch arrive but as soon as I was finished I told Wendy I’d pack up and be right over.  Traffic was excellent so the ride from Kaimuki to Ko Olina was just over 30 minutes.  When I arrived Wendy & Chad showed me on the beach where to start and the grid search began.  After about 30 minutes I got a nice tone and there in the scoop was a yellow 14k gold ring but not Wendy’s.  Wendy and Chad came down to the beach and I showed them what I had found.  Obviously not what they wanted to see but I was getting close to the end of the search area and getting hopeful.  About 4 more grid lines.  Then on the second to last grid line I got another amazing tone on the Manticore and on the second scoop Wendy’s stunning Diamond packed Platinum ring was finally recovered.  I yelled over to them in the beach chairs, “Got it for sure this time!”  Wendy and Chad were exhaustedly relieved and we shook hands and hugged.  Me wishing I had started from the other end and not making them wait so long.  Success is bliss!  Much Aloha to Wendy & Chad!
