Found! Very special three part ring from the water at Orange Beach, Alabama

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

This super nice couple came to Orange Beach from Atlanta. They normally vacationed in Panama City but damage from Hurricane Michael changed their plans. The rings were lost while wading about waist deep in the Gulf, but she didn’t know where it was lost for sure. Both she and her Husband were skeptical about someone being able to find a “needle in a haystack”, I assured them I would do my best and I don’t give up. I first searched around where they set their towels to no avail. Next I set flagging so I could accurately search a grid in water. I could tell they were gaining some hope in my ability. Because there were 3 different rings of unknown metallurgy I felt I needed to dig everything. On the first grid line I got a nickel signal, when I set the scoop they lit up with anticipation and unfortunately let down when I showed them the nickel. I think I dug 4 other items and half way through the third grid line I found the “needle”! I looked in the scoop with a big smile on my face and they knew it was recovered. They were all smiles and gratitude. What is so special about this ring set is the ring with the blue gem stones. Her Husband is a Law Enforcement Officer and always on her mind. It made my day that I could help them out. They went home happy with smiles on their faces, and that’s a success story for me!
