This recovery was tough one! I received two text messages from Todd at 2am and at 4am one morning as he was desperate to find his fiancé’s engagement ring. He had searched pretty much all night when he finally reached out to me. Todd had taken the ring to get it cleaned and upon returning to his apartment complex, dropped the ring box and the ring came out on the sidewalk. He bent down to pick up the ring and as he was standing back up, heard a loud noise which startled him. As he reacted to the loud noise, he threw up his hands and the ring went flying down a steep hill covered with juniper bushes. When I arrived, we experimented with a penny and had him repeat exactly what he did the night before. He had also tried this a couple of times and it seemed that all the coins landed in a similar area. I first tried all the open spaces where I could get my coil to the ground but no luck. I proceeded to use my hand-held probe to try to get into the base of the bushes. It was a dirty job and one that resulted in several scratches up and down my arms. After about 2 hours, I started to peel back the branches of one of the bushes when I spotted something shiny! I quickly turned to Todd and asked him what is that? He bent down and pulled out his fiancé’s engagement ring. What a beautiful white gold ring with a blue/green amethyst! The stress and anxiety Todd was feeling was quickly replaced with a big smile as he pulled the ring from the bush. Congrats Todd on your engagement!
