Alison was out on a boogie board that had a break in the foam causing the nose to dive down. This caused Alison’s hand to plunge hard into the sandy bottom. She felt her engagement ring get pulled off of her finger. About an hour after the loss, she found out about Crystal Coast Ring Finders. After speaking to her I loaded my equipment and headed to the Topsail beach location. A through grid search only provided 2 wires and a newer penny. I extended the search area to the west and received a strong signal on the Minelab Equinox 800. Before attempting to recover the item, I looked at Alison and her husband with my fingers crossed. Before Alison’s husband could get to me, I had her lost engagement ring in my hand.
