Dan called me this morning about his wife Namita’s lost diamond wedding ring.
Dan told me that Namita had placed the ring in her pants pocket to wash her hands and then forgot about the ring.
About an hour later, she put a few things in her pocket and took their dog for a walk around a small, local park and then continued around the block and back home.
When Namita got back home, she realized her ring was missing and her and Dan went out and retraced her steps in hopes of spotting the ring.
When they couldn’t locate the lost ring, Dan found me online and called with the story.
I was really busy today with other things but decided to cancel a few things and help them out as the ring was in a very public area and could potentially be spotted by anyone around the park.
I met Dan and Namita about a half hour later at the park and they walked me through the entire route Namita walked as I scanned the grass beside the sidewalks around the park and around the block.
We were almost back to their house when two younger gentlemen and a young lady approached us and asked why I was using a metal detector.
Namita said that I was helping them try and find her ring she had lost and then one of the young men reached into his pocket, pulled out a diamond ring and said “is this the one ..??”
Sure enough, it was Namita’s ring and the gentleman said that he had found it earlier near their residence on a concrete pathway and put it in his pocket.
He then said he knew it seemed like an important ring and he was glad that he had spotted us metal detecting.
We were all a bit stunned at the timing of all this and the fact that this young man was good enough to return this beautiful ring is miraculous.
There are still plenty of good people on this earth and I was very happy I got to witness this for myself today. What a beautiful act of kindness.
I’ve said it a million times, I don’t care how we find these rings as long as they get found.
What an amazing experience today that I won’t forget for a long time.
Dan then gave me an extremely generous reward for my efforts even though I wasn’t the one to find the ring. Thank you Dan.
I’m so happy this great young couple have their ring back and enjoy it for years to come.
