Lost Tungsten Ring w/ Wood Inlay Found In Royal Oak Michigan
Are Woodies Making A Comeback?
Paul and his family were in town and decided to stop at a park to toss a football around. Around dusk they all piled back into the car and headed to the relatives place. Upon arriving Paul noticed his ring missing. Checking the area the following morning revealed nothing. 2 days had passed and today on site I noticed that the park grounds maintenance had cut the grass and used a blower in the area where Paul thought it came off. Turning on my MXT metal detector I started to grid search the area which was hardened mud and crispy russet colored leaves. As my feet crunched the leaves I got no metal signal in the area of interest. Deciding to fan out a bit was a better decision. Just 3 feet from the back of the parking bumper in the grass revealed this quite stunning tungsten ring inlayed with oak wood from a whisky barrel! As Paul and the family were busy on their phones he looked over and I waived for him to come take a look. He reached down, held it in the air and yelled to the family to come see. They all came running over and were elated but mystified how the ring ended up there. Watching them drive off to further explore the Detroit area with smiles was a great feeling. So whether or not the woodie automobile makes a comeback, the wood inlayed rings are becoming quite popular.
