The Ring Finders and a Royal Success
I recently got a call from a distressed young lady who lost a 1-carat diamond ring set in Platinum on Avila beach about three miles from Pismo Beach on 4/26/15. The lady, Jennifer had been crying since the loss, Jennifer had taken the ring off to put on some suntan lotion and forgot to put the ring back on after setting it on the blanket. The afternoon winds came up so she hurriedly shook the blanket and headed to the parking lot, upon arriving at her car she realized the ring was not on her finger. She raced back to the area, but to no avail, the ring was not found. Jennifer then went home to tell her husband the sad news, her husband was livid and then stopped speaking to her(He had paid $7500 for the ring).
Through a round about way a former “The Ring Finders” member, now disabled and unable to metal detect suggested Jennifer contact me. The next day I met the Jennifer on Avila Beach at an agreed to time and walked to the area where she said she had been resting in the sand. I knew the direction prevailing winds on Avila beach blow and which side one would stand shake a blaket, so with a little logic within 45 seconds and ten steps, I got a nice hit and pulled up the ring in my basket, Jennifer was elated and started crying. I think I might have got a few grains of sand in my eyes at the same time. With a tears of joy running down her face and a big hug she forced a $100 bill into my shirt pocket in thanks (for saving her happy home).
If it had not been for “The Ring Finders” Jennifer might have never gotten her precious ring back. I joined “The Ring Finders” the very next day.
