– November 2013
Although finding lost jewelry is not all about getting on the job quickly, on this particular job we spent more time preparing to find the ring than we did actually searching for it. We received a call from a lady who had lost an earring. Fortunately for us, it was a large loop earring and would sound off much like a normal ring. Ironically, she had actually lost it on our property. We operate a large dog boarding facility with a 13 acre members-only dog park with a few hundred members. She had been walking her pooch when she realized she was missing an earring. Luckily, she had a vague idea of where she may have been when it was lost. However, 13 acres is a large property and if she wasn’t right, this would be like finding a needle in a haystack.
Scrap Iron and I grabbed our gear and we went to work. Fortunately she was right, and we we picked the right place to start, and the ring recovery Gods had been smiling down upon me lately. We found it in about 2 minutes…before I even had a chance to turn on the camera! Found it with the Garrett AT Pro. This was the 4th gold piece we had recovered for customers within just a couple weeks!
Hopefully you can keep all of your bling on your person. But, if you are ever in the need of someone to help you find a lost piece of jewelry, and you are in the Kansas City area, look us up. If you are not in the KC area, give us a jingle anyway, we know people all over the country and can put you in touch with someone who can help you out.
P.S. Yes, it is an earring but she put them both on her finger to show the camera.
