Nantucket’s sand could not hide a ring for long.

Rain, thunder, lightening and other commitments started Friday off as a non-detecting day. But for an out of state phone call … A request for help in finding a very sentimental engagement ring which belonged to the caller’s mother had been lost in the ocean. The loss occurred at the base of the Steps Beach, an hour ferry ride away. Having a day to make reservations, pack a detecting bag, complete what I had to do, get a good nights rest, and to think about how the ring I was going to search for was lost. Every ring has a story and this one was no exception.

Jeff had worn his mother’s rings since her passing, I could not let Jeff down. It was Jeff’s youngest son who had unintentionally pulled on the necklace holding the two precious rings which came apart and sent the rings flying. The wedding band was found in seconds, before the moving sand covered it unlike the engagement ring that had disapeared out of sight. Something more than hands sifting the sand was needed. A pool skimmer net was tried next without success in snagging the ring from its sandy resting place be for I arrived.

Jeff’s 9 year old son had a detector but had no luck in using it on the wet sand. With this information I knew I would be able to show and tell about some of my finds and pass some detecting techniques onto a young, budding detectorist.

In just under an hour of searching starting at Google Maps pinned point which was not as accurate as we would have liked. GPS satellite co-ordinates are only good to about a 15 foot radius and the pin showed the ring should be in the water. I started in the water working parallel to the shore, up the face of the beach revealed only a few targets of melted aluminum and pull tabs. Not a single coin or the ring. I then started searching 90 degrees to my previous paths.

While digging a promising target I overheard Jeff talking with another beach goer about how he had lost his wedding band several years ago, rented a detector and found his own ring. “There was hope, the guy detecting (me) has a good chance of finding the lost ring.” He was trying to keep Jeff’s spirits up.

Little did they know the promising target was THE RING and it was in my scoop! Without any fanfare I walked over to the two men, joined in the conversation. Jeff thought I was giving up and it was time to call it a day. I said “almost, not just yet until you look in my scoop” … I’ll let you imagine the emotions from all members of Jeff, his wife and three children.

Time was left to snap a few photos, clean up, grab a wonderful island lunch. I did a bit of show and tell and left a few “treasures” with the young detectorist which he was sharing with his sister. It was then time for the walk to the ferry boarding area and board the ferry that would take me back to the main land. Durinmg the hour ride I was sure I would be pondering over the wonderful feeling of how a terrible happening was turn into a great day on one beautiful island with one terrific family. I am pretty sure I will hear of a young detectorist doing fabulous things in the near future.

I do love this hobby.

August 23rd Connie lost her wedding band just after applying insect repellent to her son. Searching for 2 days, it could not be found. Upon wakening on Saturday morning, Connie took a friend’s advice about TheRingFinders and called me. Two hours later she had the ring back on her finger where it belonged. Was it a coincidence or fate? Connie, her Husband Steven and their son were staying at a home owned by the Browne’s, my last name is Browne, and had lost a Gold ring, their last name is Gold. The ring was found and returned by a Ring Finder. All this on Steven’s birthday. A Happy Day for Everyone!

What happens on Cape Cod does not always stay there! Ring returned.

Lauren’s secret is revealed here…

I lost my wedding band in the sand and my husband is out west and does not know, yet.

In search of help she contacted the local metal detector J&E Enterprise. Then I was contacted for help. 45 minutes later I was sitting in a line of 15 cars waiting for one of the limited parking spaced at the town beach to become available which happened only when someone left the beach. I called Lauren and told her I would be a while longer as I was waiting in line. She then told me to cut around the line as she had arranged with the parking attendant a space for me to park in.

It took me longer to get ready for the search than to find the diamond studded wedding band. With the ring back on Lauren’s warm hand several “well done” comments were made. The necessary pictures were taken and many questions answered. As well as one request to help find a ring that was lost in the cold snow this past winter.

Wedding Ring Lost in Sea Isle Canal while fishing in Galveston, Texas (found) by John Volek

I was contacted by Stephen and Maggie regarding a lost wedding ring in the canal behind their home in Sea Isle, Texas (Galveston Island).

Stephen and Maggie reported that while fishing on the dock behind their home, Maggie’s ring had slipped off her finger and flew into the canal.

Stephen reported the water was approximately 4 foot deep, and  the bottom was very muddy.

 

Check out the video to see the cool recovery of Maggie’s Wedding Ring!
