First off this search came about by way of a referral, a friend had told the owner of the lost rings about me and the Ring Finders service. This is really nice to hear as it confirms that the general public is becoming more aware of us and what we do . . now on to the story. The owner had been at a local beach the day before and upon returning home discovered that both her engagement band and wedding ring were missing. After going through all the possibilities it was determined that the rings had almost definitely been lost at the beach and that’s when I was contacted. The owner’s father met me at the beach early to guide me to the area they had been in. I was pretty fired up as this would be my first search for a “double”, two rings lost at the same time. Living right or living lucky, I’m not sure which but within a couple minutes I got a low, “dirty” signal and reasoned that it was probably a bit of trash but when I looked closer I could see the solitaire diamond as well as part of the silver colored wedding ring poking above the surface ! Halfway to my goal I kept the search going and in a short time had also rescued the engagement band from it’s hiding place about 4″ down in the sand . . . my first “double” ! It bears saying that although this would, on the surface appear to have been an easy search it could have turned out much worse if not for the owner and her family’s diligence in helping to put me close in to where the rings were lost. The combination of characteristics for both rings, the material, size, stones and design combined to make both rings appear to be nothing more than pieces of foil to my machine, had I been searching a large area they would not have been hard to pass right by. It was a team effort and today the team won big time.
