Engagement Ring Recovered in Brigantine NJ

  • from Sea Isle City (New Jersey, United States)

I had the privilege to meet Kerry and her husband Kyle and return her engagement ring to her. All three were happy to see their heirloom that they thought was gone forever. Thank you so much for your hospitality and generosity!!!

Engagement ring found after 6 days on the beach in Brigantine NJ

I received an email from a woman who had lost her engagement ring in Brigantine NJ over the Memorial Day weekend. She took her rings off to apply sunscreen and placed them on a towel. When her husband moved the towel the rings dropped into the sand. They were able to locate the wedding band but were unsuccessful in locating the .75k solitaire diamond set in platinum. They even had a friend search with a metal detector.

She thought her heirloom was gone. A few days later a friend mentioned the ringfinders.com which is how she came to contact me.

I went to the beach and conducted an intense and thorough search of the area with my Minelab CTX 3030. The results were negative.

Believing the ring to still be there I went on Saturday with my Minelab Equinox. I was accompanied by fellow Ribgfinder John Favno. After six steps I located the ring. Strangely, there were still marks from where I searched the day before. Did the CTX not read the ring? Did I just barely miss swinging over it? I’ll never know. What I do know is by going back with the Nox, I was able to find it.

I texted her a picture of it and waited. A while later she called and was ecstatic that her heirloom would be returned to her. We have arranged the return for next week. Those pics will be posted.
