Lost Diamond Wedding Ring Found by Emerald Isle Metal Detecting

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)


Megan contacted me Tuesday afternoon in regards to her wedding ring she lost in the ocean surf Saturday afternoon.  She had stated that she happened to be searching the internet and found an add I placed on Craigslist for jewelry recovery.  A storm was in the area that afternoon/evening so we agreed to begin the search at dawn.  I began the search at dawn and was first unsucessful because of the strong waves.  I drove an hour back to my home and returned a couple of hours later to resume the search.  While covering the beach for hours, I walked around a group of 3 sand castles as I didn’t want to disturb someone’s creations.  I later came back to the sand castles and very carefully worked my detector around the 3 structures and got the tone I had been searching to find for hours.  The first carefully scooped out sand pile surrendered Megan’s ring!

Megan W. story:

“After helping my toddler with boogie boarding on the beach I noticed that my wedding ring was no longer on my finger. We searched the beach behind our vacation rental for three days with no luck. Then I found Steven Ray’s Ringfinder website. He came at first light the following day and after about four hours of searching and a second trip to the rental house he found it!”
