“I was heartbroken… the ring could be replaced, but I also knew I would always know that my first ring, the ring that got Greg down on his knee, the ring that united us at the alter, the ring that…”
A Facebook message brought me to Portsmouth, Rhode Island, in search of a lost diamond ring. Sometimes the heartbroken ring owner knows where they lost their ring, and sometimes, they don’t. This was a situation where the ring could have been in multiple places. Kate first realized the ring was missing after pulling her hand from the chilly water while picking up a rock for her young son. This area is the best place to start because the cool water causes fingers to restrict, allowing the ring to slip right off. This particular beach was mostly golf ball size cobblestone with a few runoff channels holding more delicate pebbles and sand. Understanding how the moves things around and knowing the ring was lost only two days prior should have left the ring in plain sight. After combing the area a few times, I started to think the ring wasn’t further up on the beach closer to the entrance. Until I heard Kate and her friend talking about this particular seashell, she remembered her son picking it up. I beelined for that area, and the very first signal I heard revealed a glimmer of gold. Find found! The fine sand had almost completely buried the ring! Can you see the ring in this photo?
Rarely passing the opportunity for a good surprise, I left the ring undisturbed in the sand and stones. With my heart pumping and fumbling with my phone camera for what seemed like ten minutes, I called Kate over to confirm the seashell she mentioned earlier. After looking down for a moment, Kate yelled out, “oh my god, there it is.” Everybody in the neighborhood knew Kate found her lost ring!
“I highly recommend Keith and his services. He is professional, easy to communicate with, empathetic, and takes a genuine caring – most importantly – he found my wedding ring within 30 minutes…”
