Is sunrise too early to start searching Misquamicut Beach, Rhode Island, for lost rings? If you lose your ring during your HONEYMOON, no search is too early! This lost ring brought me to twelve (12) acres of land nestled within Misquamicut Beachfront, known as Atlantic Beach Park, the second oldest family-run seaside amusement park in the country. It has been providing summer fun since the early 1920s. Best known for its 1915 Herschell-Spillman Carousel and hand-carved Illions horses, people come from all over to take selfies on this old school carousel.
“My wife and I (it’s kinda weird saying that because we just got married three days ago) are on our honeymoon here in Rhode Island when I noticed my ring was a little loose… It fell off, and we probably spent 6 hours of our honeymoon looking for the lost ring. My dad is a custom goldsmith, and it’s not the first ring he’s made me. He made me another ring in the past, and I lost that one but ended up finding it a year later. I was hoping to find this ring in less than a year later. I found Keith online, and he came over and found the ring in 15 – 20 minutes.”
I answered a request early one morning after receiving a submission the night before through my website’s “Schedule Search” button. Thinking I had a couple of hours before the hearing from Brian, I continued answering emails. This lost ring must have had Brian up early because I received his phone call only minutes after sending the email. When I heard his story, I knew I had to stop everything I was doing and help find the lost ring plaguing this honeymoon. Just after 7 AM, I arrived at Brian’s Airbnb on Atlantic Ave. Westerly, RI. The best part about searching the beach in the early morning is not having to awkwardly ask beachgoers if they would mind moving their chairs so I can search the sand under them. We had the whole beach to ourselves, and I could see Brian’s work in the sand where he was looking for the ring on the previous day – along with a rock marking the area where he and his wife were sitting. Usually, when someone has a reference point of where they were when they notice the ring was missing, it’s a good sign. Making a couple of passes with my metal detector, I heard a strong signal. Brian was carefully watching me remove the sand when he caught a glimpse of GOLD. He said, “I saw it!” And he was right. I picked up the thick gold ring decorated with his father’s custom designs. This is truly one of the most beautiful rings I’ve seen personally. I don’t know of many goldsmiths, but Brian’s dad is one of only a few capable of this intricate work, if I had to guess. Brian and his wife finished their honeymoon with smiles on their faces.
