Alexander has only been married for one month and had lost his wedding ring in the sand at Laguna Beach, CA. while visiting from Russia. He called me asking help to find his wedding ring that was lost playing football on the beach. He was sure that his one month old white gold wedding ring had come off his finger during the game but he didn’t feel it come off. Tomorrow he would be returning to his home in Russia. He didn’t want to return with bad news that he had lost his ring.
We made arrangements to meet on the beach shortly after he contacted me, even though the beach was packed with sunbathers. I don’t usually search when the beach is crowded but you never know the conditions until you get there.
Alexander walked me a few blocks down the beach where he believed they had played football. We were fortunate that this area was clear of people. I began a grid search that was approximately 15 yards square. On the third pass I got a faint but clear tone. One deep scoop with my sand scoop and there in the bottom of the scoop was Alexander’s gold Wedding Ring. It was smaller than I expected and may have been on edge which would have accounted for the faint signal. Whatever, the main thing was we had another ring recovery.
Alexander was very appreciative but I couldn’t get him to smile for the photo, I think it was because he was still surprised how well the metal detector could find such a small piece of metal in a sea of sand. It was definitely a pleasure to meet and help Alexander. I’m sure he will tell his family and friends in Russia about his adventure of finding someone from TheRingFinders to help him find the ring.
