Lost wedding ring Waikiki Found

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find started mid day on Easter Sunday. We were just winding down from watching the little ones search the yard for eggs when I got a call from Katie the wife of Kylee and she was asking if I was available to help her husband who just lost his wedding ring in the water out front the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. I assured her that help was on the way and immediately told my wife the unfortunate news and so we gathered up the family and I grabbed  my gear for underwater hunting. As we were leaving the house I noticed the sun was on its way down as it was getting closer to the evening. Within the next 50  minutes I called to let Katie know I’m almost there and will park and head towards them at the beach. I arrived at the hotel and quickly grabbed my gear and headed to the beach where I met Katie and Kylee. Kylee and Katie greeted me at the beach and both were very appreciative for coming out on Easter to help them look for their lost wedding ring. I encouraged them that this is what we as ring finders love to do… help find lost items. As I talked to Kylee about the incident and gathered as much information I needed, I noticed the tide changed and there would be a difference to where this ring could be now many hours later.  I encouraged the couple that I will do my best and get Kylees ring back on his hand. As I started my search I noticed there was a lot I’ve trash in the area. I continue to go on the line in which Kylee believes he lost it. Close to the shoreline not much farther out than that and maybe up to waist deep of water. And as I continue to search the area back-and-forth I noticed there is no sign of a ring. So I decide to move into deeper waters. And low and behold I get a beautiful tone on my equinox. I dig for the target and there in my Xtreme scoop is Kylee’s ring. I look up to notice Kylee is not looking at me and so I ask him “hey Kylee can you tell me what the ring looks like”? Kaylee says it’s all black and nothing really other to it. And so I ask another question,  “Are you sure? He stops for a moment and as his mind is in ajar I ask does it look like this? As I hold out his ring in my hand he says “YES! That’s it”. We both rejoice as the beautiful sun starts to set behind us. A couple in passing looks at us and asked you find anything good? Our response YES HIS WEDDING RING. As we walked back to our towels in the sand we both get our phones out to call our wives. I can hear his phone as he can hear mine… the first thing out of my wife’s mouth was… you find it? I responded with a happy yes! I could hear Katie excited on the other line as well. Kylee and I both smile as we know this was more than a lost and found… what started out as a day for my kids to find Easter eggs ended with daddy finding a beautiful wedding ring in Waikiki under the shade of the most beautiful sunset. Kylee and I both shake hands and head our ways back to our families we love so much… another great recovery and another precious recovery back to the rightful owner! Always a pleasure.
