Lost 14K Gold Ring recovered in Lake Raleigh, in Raleigh N.C. on 4/18/14..

  • from Hillsborough (North Carolina, United States)

I recovered this Lost 14K gold wedding  ring on 4/18/14 for MR. Chris C.  Who explained that he lost his his ring about a month ago in Lake Raleigh while doing a polar plunge in the cold water.. It appears that when Chris jumped in the cold water that the cold water caused his hand / skin on his finger to shrink some and the ring came off..  Chris contacted me a couple weeks ago to help him locate his ring and i explained i would need permission from the college since N.C. State University owned the property.. Chris obtained permission and I met him at the lake to make the Recovery.. The ring was recovered in about 5 feet of water.. Here are some photos of the search .. There was alot of trash down there but I found the ring in about a hour of searhing..

    Fantastic recovery! That sounds like a tough search…Did you find anything else?

  2. Thanks Chris, It was not to tough of a search.. The search took about a hour and the bottom was a little trashy.. I also recovered some fishing weights and a pair of sun glasses and a set of house keys..

    Nice job, are you using a hooka diving system, looks like little to zero visibility in the lake?. The owner has no idea how lucky he is to get his ring back. I hope the reward matched the effort.

    1. Hello and thanks.. Yes I was useing a Hooka system that was attached to my gold dredge.. And the visibilty was bad, I only had a few inches visibilty to see..
