.. Britney believed that her very sentimental and very expensive 7 ct. diamond ring was lost at a Southern California beach. The loss happened three days before contacting me. She didn’t feel the ring fall off her finger, only realizing the missing ring while driving home. Her insurance company recommended that she contact a member of TheRingFinders. When I replied to her text, she told me that she just a few minutes to talk before leaving to pick up her daughter from school.
It was late in the afternoon and I thought I might have to set up this search for the next morning. I did have time to find out Britney would not be able to meet me at the location. In my opinion, I believed I should make the hour drive attempting a preliminary search with the sketchy directions she gave me. Part of the area is a play area that gets a lot of attention from hobby detectorists. The other possible location was a large section of main beach which is sometimes known as “no man’s land”, the area of sand between parking lot and the towel line.
I made the drive and was able to talk with Britney one more time after I arrived. She couldn’t add much to the directions given to me on our first phone call. I made sure to thoroughly grid search the play area first. Then proceeded to grid search half a football field zone that she had set up their beach blanket.
There was 30-35mph winds blowing sand that evening as the sun beat an to set. It was looking like I might have to return the next morning. This area might be larger that Britney described, she said it was about 100 -150ft out. ( some people are good about judging distance?) I started in the middle going north. Then I came back to go south. The second 150 ft pass I got a great signal just where I was doing the turn around. Boom !! Big 7 ct. diamond in a white gold setting. Successfull recovery just before thinking this was going to be a two day search.. This was an awesome search because I had very few details to work with and three days had passed. Sometimes you just have to try.
Britney and her husband met me near where I live to pick up their very sentimental ring. Ending several days of frustration and sleepless nights upset with herself and believing the ring was lost forever.
