Lost Engagement Ring .. Santa Monica, CA. .. Found in Sand

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

TEXT .. 10:52 pm.
Hi. My name is Mallorie and I lost my engagement ring on Santa Monica beach tonight. I came across your name on ring finders and was wondering if you could help and what your cost is. Sorry to text so late. Please get back to me as soon as possible.
Thank you.
I received the above text just as I was returning home from a thanksgiving dinner. I replied asking Mallorie to call me right away. Her and her husband Nathan were there to meet me at 12:30 am on the beach near Santa Monica Pier.
They believed the diamond ring to be near the gymnastics rings where Nathan and Mallorie had done a little work out. She had put three rings in Nathan’s shirt pocket while she did some stunts on the rings. When she finished He gave her two of the rings. A little later she asked for the other ring. The ring wasn’t in his pocket. They had been in a large area, but assumed it dropped in the sand when he pulled out the first rings.
I grid searched the whole area without a sign of the ring. Then I asked, where else they had been. They did try one other set of gym rings where Nathan had taken his shirt off, laying it on the sand. This was our last hope for the night. I was already making plans to return in the morning to scan the larger beach area. We knew that we were running out of possible places the ring could be hiding. Then came the magic gold tone and 12-24 VDI reading. The beautiful Rose Gold Diamond ring was in my sand scoop.
A nice Thanksgiving present for Mallorie and Nathan.
