Custom Silver Ring With Black Diamonds Lost at Marina Del Rey Beach, CA...Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Greg’s wife called me tonight about her husband’s lost ring. They had been enjoying themselves at the beach. Greg had taken his ring off, and put it into the cup holder of his beach chair while enjoying the sand and surf. Not thinking of the ring, when they were ready to go Greg’s wife folded up the beach chair, and the ring was gone. She felt very bad about what had happened. They found me on the internet, and I said I would come and help them, but they said the local police patrol was going to try to locate a detectorist the police thought they saw earlier. I told him, no problem, but if they could not find the guy to call me back, and that I was going to eat my dinner. About 20 minutes later Greg called back, the other detectorist must have left for the day. I told him I would be there as soon as I had finished my dinner, so he gave me directions.

When I got to the beach Greg met me to take me out to the area of the loss. They had stayed in the spot (very important), and had marked off an area they thought the ring may have fallen into (very helpful). I turned on my White’s Surfmaster PI Dual Field, and began my search. I made one pass, turned and got a strong signal, put the scoop in, and retrieved a bottle cap. I showed it to them, a little disconcerting I know when they are expecting to see their lost ring, but I feel the people I search for need to see everything I find. I took a couple more swings when I got another good signal. This time I pulled the scoop out and it looked like I had found real pirate’s treasure. This was a big custom silver ring loaded with black diamonds; real cool. Greg and his wife were so happy to see his ring, and lots of joy was restored today.
