Last Saturday, I was on my way back to the house after spending 2 unsuccessful hours in the surf looking for a mans lost ring. I got a phone call from Oliver asking if I was the “Ring Finder Guy”. Oliver explained that a friend of his had lost her engagement ring the previous day. Oliver, looking to rent a metal detector, had been referred to me by Joe Denton, our local Minelab distributor. I told Oliver that I was already on the road with my gear and would meet him in 15 minutes at the beach parking lot.
Oliver graciously covered my parking expenses and we headed toward the beach. Upon arriving I met Claudia and Edwin. Walking out to the area that Claudia had lost her engagement ring, she explained how she had placed it in a shirt pocket the day before. She had picked up her shirt to put it back on as they were leaving and had forgotten about her ring in the pocket. We got to the spot, in the dry sand where they were sitting yesterday and pointed out the area. I pictured a 30′ square area and went to work with my grid search. On the 5th line I got a nice low tone in the phones. Like my previous ring return it came in so low that I really felt like I was getting ready to scoop up a piece of foil. I gently used my sand scoop to dig the target. Giving the scoop a little shake revealed Claudia’s Engagement ring. I walked over to where she and Edwin were standing and held out my sand scoop for her to reach in and retrieve the prized possession. The ring that Edwin had place on her finger 2 years ago on their wedding day. The smiles tell the rest of the story.
Oliver, Claudia and Edwin, thanks for trusting the TheRingFinders.com to find your lost ring. Traveling mercies back to Baltimore.
