Family Heirloom Almost Lost Forever

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

This was one of my favorite recoveries. During the summer of 2020 I received a call from a woman who lost her ring in the surf in Cape May NJ. This ring was special to her. It was her deceased mother’s 18K gold ring. She could not stay because she was returning home to NY City shortly. I had her document her location and send the info to me. When I got there the tide was too high and I was unable to locate the ring. I went back the next day at low tide and low and behold I dug this out of the surf. When I called and told her I found it she was so happy. She really thought it was gone forever. I wanted to return it to her in person but since she lived in NY City and was not able to come to S Jersey, I mailed it to her.
