Family Heirloom Ring Lost in Vienna, VA… Recovered By a Ring Finder (Oct 2017)
On Friday, Nancy was at at the edge of her yard checking on her compost pile; instead of adding the orange in her hand to the pile, she decided to toss it into the woods for the deer. As she threw the orange, she caught the glimmer of her ring fly into the woods. The ring had once belonged to her mother, a family heirloom that was given to her, and she wears almost constantly even though its a tad big for her finger.
Nancy and her husband, Terry, searched for the ring, even brought out a rake to try to search through the forest floor… no luck.
On Saturday evening, Terry found the Ring Finders online and gave me a call. He described what had happened and we settled on a meeting time of noon the next day.
I arrived today (Sunday) at noon just as planned. Terry and Nancy walked me back to the edge of the yard and Nancy demonstrated the throw she made just two days before. I made note of the search area and got my detector ready to go… 15 minutes later I found the ring under some twigs and leaves. It felt good to see Nancy so happy to have her mothers ring back on her hand, she was almost in tears.
