Tina, her fiance’ and friends were enjoying some time together in the yard. As the sun began to set they decided to continue around a nice warm bonfire. Scurrying around lighting logs, setting chairs, and gathering food and beverages to enjoy around the fire, the logs finally began to glow. Settling into the warmth, sounds of a strumming guitar and singing voices filled the night air. When the morning came around she noticed her engagement ring was missing. Thoughts quickly turned to where it may be…..the log pile or the fire pit? A quick check there and in the cool ashes revealed nothing. Raking thru the leaves revealed nothing and buying a toy type metal detector only led to more worry and frustration. On site her and I went over the details where she was in the yard. As I was setting up the manual ground balance on my MXT metal detector I noticed there was so much junk metal items I switched to one of the turn on and go modes available on the MXT and quickly started to grid search. Seeing a picture of the ring I knew the approximate range on the meter where the ring should be. As my detector coil flew over the colorful leaves, ignoring the junk signals, a nice signal came thru at 24/26 and 0 depth. Pushing the leaves aside this beautiful custom design rose gold ring with a spectacular diamonds setting revealed itself quite a few feet from where she was sitting and where her fiance’ had raked the leaves! I waved her over and pointing down, her eyes got as wide as her smile as she picked the ring from the leaves. Totally elated and speechless she finally caught her breath and said I’m so thrilled and thankful you found it! I’m so glad we contacted you! I’m gonna have a nice surprise for him when he get’s home!
I said you’re welcome and I thoroughly enjoyed my “Come by here” moment as well.
