The Stuff Of Legends! Gold Wedding Ring Found @ Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia

The Stuff of Legends – Cottesloe Beach, April 2, 2018.

Last week, I flew to Perth to visit my brother Sean who I hadn’t seen in ten years.  It was going to be an epic catch up and I was hoping I would get the chance to see him in action on a ring find – a new talent he had developed since we last saw each other.  I was fascinated with the whole process, and eager to share in what I was convinced would be a wicked feel good factor, reuniting someone with their lost ring.

On our last afternoon, we were chilling out at home before heading to the airport, when Sean took a call from a distressed woman who had just lost her wedding band running out of the surf at Cottesloe beach. It had simply slipped off as she ran up the beach, and was flung into the sand –  somewhere… Lucky for her the Cottesloe lifeguards told her she could find Sean’s contact details on The Ring Finders website – a glimmer of hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.

Sean went from woah to go in an instant, and we were on the road bound for Cottesloe – the importance of getting on to a search quickly was not lost on me – so many factors that could impact your chances of ever finding your lost jewellery – the weather, the sea conditions, whether

Sean and Angie discussing the search area.

you can accurately pinpoint an area in which it was lost, and of course the risk of someone else finding it, or worse, the evening  sand sieve machine chewing it up and spitting it into the unknown…

We arrived and met Angie above the beach. She took us down to where she thought she had lost her ring.  In an excellent move that would prove pivotal to the outcome, she and her friends had placed coffee cups in the sand to mark the points between which she thought the ring had been lost. Sean then quizzed Angie on the circumstances surrounding her loss, and clarified details before commencing his search.

Angie, her friends and I watched as Sean methodically covered the area.  His technique was a fascinating ‘shuffle’ that was systematic and almost dance-like.  I was surprised at the speed he was moving, as I thought it would be much slower.  Every minute or so, Sean would pause, hovering his detector back and forth, testing for the right signal and honing in on a target.  Sometimes he would move on, but other times, he would drop to his knees and used a pinpointer that beeped wildly as he felt round the spot.  Our hearts would leap to our throats every time  – and they would sink again as he retrieved a piece of lead, a coin, or some other debris left behind on the beach.

As he approached the second and last coffee cup at the far end of the area Angie had indicated, we began to resign ourselves to the possibility that the ring was lost for good.  Angie had been married 22 years, and this would be devastating – sure a gold band can be replaced, but not the fact that for 22 years it had been on her finger and with her every step.  A new one just wouldn’t be the same.

Angie’s precious… rescued!

about 10 minutes into the search, Sean once again dropped to his knees in the sand as he followed a target. A moment later, he lifted his hand in the air and exclaimed “yeaaaaah – woohoo”. Angie and her friends were so excited, squealing with delight as

Thanks to life gaurds giving Angie my no..

Angie rushed over to Sean and threw her arms around him.  “Oh My God, What a Legend!!!  Thank you so much!!” she exclaimed over and over. 

There it was, the feel good factor.  This is why Sean does this, right there, that moment.

After thanking the lifeguards for connecting them, Sean and Angie took a few pictures before we headed to the pub across the road for a celebratory drink before I departed for the airport on a high.  What a way to round off an awesome week!

I received a voicemail from Kaci. She had stated her wedding ring flew off her hand tossing candy from her car in her driveway while holding her young child. She said she had lost it on 10-30-18. The next day is when she called me. I said I can come right after work so I came home grabbed my gear and headed her way a 20 minute drive. I searched for awhile with no luck. I searched the yard three times before she headed to work. I said it’s not in the yard. She had some bushes right by the car and porch so I got on my knees and found a pull tab at the base of the bushes. Just as her husband was home he headed for the porch I heard the sweet sound from my pinpointer… I said to him does her ring look like this he said no way I said yup I got it. Now the fun began I said we have to go surprise her. I gathered a bunch of small metal from my truck and went to see KACI. We got there and I told her it’s not in your yard or your car. I showed her all the stuff I found in her yard with the ring hidden beneath the junk. She started moving stuff around in my hand and saw her ring underneath.. Her reaction was priceless.. Thank for getting ahold of me KACI..

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING BATON ROUGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Taloria called late Saturday afternoon looking for help in finding her lost engagement ring. It was too late to drive the 1 ½ hrs to Baton Rouge and get any hunting in before dark, so we set up to meet early the next morning. When we arrived at the site, Taloria said she was on her way to a party with friends when she placed her engagement ring on her lap to apply some hand lotion. When they had parked in the grassy field, she exited the car not thinking about the ring. When she realized the ring was gone, she hunted in and around the car but did not find it. She then called us to help. Being she knew where the car was parked, the search area was small. The problems were tall grass and lots of trash (foil, pull tabs, drink containers, etc.). The hunt was very tedious.  Sid got tired of the constant up and down to check out hits. He got on his hands and knees and crawled around using the pin pointer. The technique worked. A hit with the pointer and glints of shiny metal proved to be the ring. Taloria (also Carrie and Sid) were very excited. After reuniting Taloria with her beautiful ring, lots of hugs, lots of smiles, and lots of pictures, we all headed home.

Lost Gold Pendant…Found Clive, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call about a lost gold pendant that had been lost from a chain around a child’s neck while playing on a trampoline. The father explained that it was a small golden pendant about the size of half of a penny. Wow that stressed me, it sounded so small, then he told me that he purchased a cheap detector and there were signals all over the place and they had searched for hours with no luck. Now I’m  thinking this will be a near impossible recovery.

So I arrived at the location today at 12:30 p.m. and it was at a friends house. So the friend took me out and showed me the location that they thought it was lost at. As he was showing me where they thought it might be lost at he looked down and said what is that, reaching down he picked up something that looked like gold foil and it was the pendant!

I don’t care who finds the lost object as long as it’s found. I did run my CTX3030 over it and it rang up at 12-05 loud and clear.

Ring found at Ocean Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Richard called me to say that he accidentally lost his wife Simone’s gold ring in the sand at Ocean Beach,  She had given him the ring so that she wouldn’t go into the ocean with it and lose it! Richard had it on his pinky when the unthinkable happened and it ended up in the dry sand. Never fear, The Ring Finders are here! I grabbed my gear, asked the wife to come along in case there wasn’t any parking, and headed out the door. Turns out there was plenty of parking, so, my wife and I went over and met Richard and Simone. We got the story and the approximate search area where I went to work. Not 30 seconds later, I get a nice solid 9 on my Equinox 800. Poked my TRX pin pointer into the sand and chased a signal for a few seconds until I cornered it and pulled a pretty little gold ring back into the sunlight. A relieved Richard and a happy Simone were now able to enjoy the rest of the day. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

LOST DIAMOND RING FOUND WAIKIKI

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th  and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA  IS ALIVE.
