Wedding Ring Lost in Gravel .. Glendale, CA. .. Found

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

After receiving an email from James this morning asking if I could help him. I sent him a reply asking for him to call me. His email explained that he had only been married for one month and had already lost his wedding ring. He believed that it possibly came off while he was walking his dog. At one point his dog got in a skirmish with another dog. That was when he thinks it may have come off his finger, although he didn’t realize his ring was missing until 20 minutes later.

James could not get off work till after 7pm and it would be dark. His wife, Sarah could meet me at 3pm which was our best alternative. She wasn’t there when it happened but she did have a matching ring that helped me get an ID reading with my detector and she had good idea of the location. Both James and Sarah had searched for some time before I got to the location. They believed it may be in the 3/4”gravel ground cover used in the planters along the sidewalk.

As I scanned the planters, Sarah asked me a few questions about how the detector works. I remember telling her to keep her eyes open because I can’t get the detector into plants and difficult spots. After about 45 minutes I heard Sarah yell, “I found it” The gravel was a light gray color very easy to hide a silver colored ring. I had just past the place where she saw the slight glimmer of the silver colored ring. It was right up against a sprinkler head wedged in amongst the gravel. The sprinkler head definitely masking the signal of the smaller ring because it was a larger metallic target.

This is not the first time the ring was found by eyeballing (visual sighting ) while trying to use use the metal detector, but it will not be the last time. All is good because James and Sarah now have their original wedding ring back where it belongs. James agreed that he was getting it sized before he wears it again. Another great find and happy day for James and Sarah.
