Theresa and her husband had just finished up with a wonderful visit from their kids. It was dark outside as the kids and grandkids pulled away from the house and Theresa walked out the front door and down the side walk a few steps to wave goodbye. (Apparently Theresa has lost some weight in the last few months and her rings were just a bit loose on her finger.) And as she continued to wave goodbye, all of a sudden, she felt her diamond engagement ring come off of her finger. Stunned, she let out a cry and immediately began looking in the bushes and thru the mulch hoping to find it. Her kids stopped and returned to the house to help look and no matter how hard they tried…they just could not find her lost ring…even after two hours. They even used a small metal detector and it made lots of strange noises and led to more frustration rather than actually helping. And the later it got, the less hope they had of finding Theresa’s lost ring.
A quick google search led Theresa to theringfinders.com and that gave her hope. And after a brief call I made arrangements to meet and conduct a thorough search the very next day and upon meeting Theresa and hearing her story I felt quite confident that her lost engagement ring could be found.
I searched the larger side of the sidewalk for twenty minutes, with my Garrett ATMax metal detector, where Theresa felt her ring had most likely fallen off and into the bushes and still no ring. I even had her try on two test rings and both times the rings flew off in a small area. After 25 minutes on my hands and knees and no ring, I said, “I wonder if it flew off in the other direction?” And sure enough, there behind her, next to a flower pot buried under two inches of mulch was Theresa’s beautiful diamond engagement ring!
It was an honor to help Theresa and to find her lost ring and return it to where it belongs. Have you lost something recently?
Call, email or text me, ASAP!
