I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!
