Received an email from a student who had lost 1 ruby stud earring and 1 diamond stud earring on campus while sitting at a picnic table. The wind came up and these two earrings fell through the holes in the table. These earrings were from her mother and had a lot of sentimental value. I asked her to send me a photo next to a coin so I could see the size of them. She did have the matching earrings. The Ruby earring was 14K but as you can see very small. The Diamond stud was bigger in white gold. Both these earrings were in the grass.

I asked her to put each earring in a separate ziplock bag which I provided. I brought my XP Deus with the HF elliptical coil. Since the earrings were small, I decided to hunt in goldfield program with the IAR at 5 so I would not hear Iron. I put both bags in the grass. I used the Grab Ground Balance, I bumped the kHz as high as I could. Received readings from both earrings. At the Lower kHz I got nothing. I also checked my XP Pinpointer with sensitivity bumped to 50 to see if the small ruby earring would even register.

In a few swings I got the diamond stud. Knowing that the ruby had to be close I found that shortly. I didn’t use the pinpointed but did verify that it would detect them. I had to be very close to them to register.

Another successful recovery. These earrings would not even register on the CTX 3030.

Lost Ruby and Diamond Sentimental Engagement ring found at Loyola Beach in chicago

Received a call from a young man who was helping an elderly women. The gentleman was sitting on a bench at Loyola Beach with his girlfriend when he observed an elderly women frantically searching on her hands and knees for her sentimental engagement ring in the sand. It was yellow gold with two Diamonds and a Ruby. He helped her by marking the spot with some small stones and a buried t shirt. He went online with his phone and found the Ringfinders website and my name. The woman does not own a cell phone. He called me and explained the situation. This call was received in the late afternoon today. I knew that if I didn’t come out right away, the stones and marker would probably be gone in the morning because of the raking machines they use every morning on the beaches. He gave me the woman’s landline number and we met at the beach. The marker was still intact. In less than 30 seconds, with just 1 swipe of the coil, I found the ring less than a foot from the marker. It came up as 12/05 on my CTX 3030. The woman was in shock that I was able to find it. She had already given up any hope of finding it. People nearby saw that I had found it and came running over in disbelief. Another GREAT DAY to be a RINGFINDER!! I couldn’t have been happier for her so I had my picture taken with her.
