Debra’s Most Elegant Family Heirloom Engagment Ring!

Debra and Russell Beyond Excited With the Return of Debra’s Precious Sentimental Keepsake!

BRIAN RUDOLPH, LOST ITEM RECOVERY SPECIALIST (LAND, WATER, SAND, HOUSES & VEHICLES) WILL FIND YOUR LOST KEEPSAKE! CALL ASAP (301) 466-8644!

Debra was beyond distraught after leaving the nail salon and realizing that her 14 karat white gold, 1.5 carat diamond family heirloom engagement ring was no longer on her finger! In a state of panic she tried to replay all of her steps from the time that she had remembered wearing it earlier that day until her moment of shock. Following the return to the nail salon to see if maybe Debra’s most sentimental keepsake slipped off her finger somewhere inside, she realized the enormity of the situation. It wasn’t found nor was it turned in by anyone. She then called a few businesses where she had visited throughout the day, but nothing was discovered. The helplessness that Debra was experiencing was unimaginable. She immediately made up signs and distributed them to the places where the engagement ring may have slipped off her finger. When still nothing became of her valiant efforts, the young lady thought at that point to seek a professional recovery specialist online who could help her during this crisis. She came across THE RING FINDERS, an international metal detectorist directory. Debra was hoping to find a metal detecting service specialist in the Rockville, Maryland area and my information popped up. We immediately made contact and Debra recounted her story from the beginning. Here are all the facts that I gathered by asking her many questions and listening to the countless details of what happened.

THE BACKSTORY

For a couple of days during the week, Debra and her family had to stay in a Rockville, Maryland hotel while their home was being renovated. Once the project was completed, the happy couple packed all their things up and looked forward to returning to their newly upgraded residence. Hours later, once all of their bags and suitcases were unloaded from their vehicle and placed back inside their house, Debra left again to take care of some errands for the next several hours.

Debra stopped at three businesses following their return home earlier that afternoon. She first went to the dermatologist. Then, she drove up the street to get coffee at the local Starbucks and hung out there for some time while she did some work on her laptop at one of the tables. Finally, Debra drove to her nail appointment just a few miles away. It wasn’t until after she left the salon and made it back to her vehicle that she realized that her engagement ring was missing. The whole mystery got very complicated because she did not remember the last time that she saw her most priceless family heirloom on her finger! This meant that she could have lost the ring any time between the time she had been staying in the hotel all the way up to when she left the nail salon. Frantically, she made phone calls and visited all of the places that she had been at, but nothing turned up. It was at that point when she went online to search for help and I was beyond happy that she got in touch with me!

THE SEARCH

After Debra recounted all of the details of what happened from the time she woke up to begin packing up her things at the hotel until the moment that she realized the ring had gone missing, I immediately set up a time to meet Debra out in the parking garage of the dermatologist’s office. The plan was to start there and then work our way over to the nail salon parking lot if we didn’t find it anywhere else. I put aside the idea of going to the hotel because their room had already been cleaned and occupied by new guests. Also, Debra was quite diligent in having the staff check out the room from top to bottom to make sure that her ring didn’t get left sitting on top of a table or desk, or that it didn’t end up on the carpet somewhere in the room. Nothing was reported by the staff so there was no reason to visit the hotel.

Even before Debra and her husband Russell arrived at Search Site #1, I had already started to metal detect the area in the parking garage based on the accurate details that Debra gave me as to where she was parked. I grid searched that entire area and came up with nothing. I used my high lumens headlamp to search the dark area while my metal detector did the rest. But still I came up short. By the time that Debra arrived, the only other place to check on the concrete was the water runoff grate that was located near her vehicle at the time that she visited the dermatologist. We thought that the ring could have rolled down into that space after slipping off of Debra’s finger. I put my endoscope (a device that helps to see between cracks and small spaces) down into the slits of the water runoff drain, but it was free of any jewelry. The next step was to inspect Debra’s vehicle. Just as Russell arrived with their children, I was just taking my faithful endoscope to investigate all of the cracks and crevices in Debra’s SUV. Sadly, nothing turned up there either. I then checked her purse and jacket before concluding that it was time to drive to Search Site #2 which was just a few blocks up the road where the young lady visited a Starbucks. She would meet me at the site while Russell took off again to buy dinner for the kids.

Once we both parked near the coffee shop, Debra showed me where she had pulled in initially, parked and then walked towards the Starbucks. I metal detected that entire section of the parking lot but there was absolutely no ring to be found. We then took the search inside the café and I used my high lumens headlamp to expose any jewelry that may have landed under any of the counters or fell into a crack or crevice where the walls met the hardwood flooring. Again, we ended up completely empty handed. There was a fellow sitting towards the back of the place who recognized my client and asked if we were still looking for her lost ring. He said that he had been in the coffee shop several times since the time he saw her the other day and that nothing had been found or turned in. The management confirmed his account.

Before leaving that plaza, I wanted to check the dumpster where all of the Starbuck’s trash was dumped into just in case her ring landed in her pastry bag when she dropped it into the receptacle before leaving the place. Unfortunately, our plan to check the garbage was compromised when I took a trip to the back of the shopping plaza and saw that the dumpster was actually a crushing machine. There was no way that I could have access to the trash from the day before. At that point there was nothing more that I could do at that particular location, and so it was time to move on to Search Site #3.

Debra gave me the nail salon name and address and so I met her over at the spot in the parking lot where she realized that her ring was no longer on her finger. We got out of our vehicles and Debra retraced her steps by taking me across the lot and over to the front of the salon. Then, we returned back towards where her vehicle had originally been parked. I used my metal detector to cover the parking lot areas where there was a good chance that the ring could have dropped and rolled along the concrete pavement. When all was found to be clear, I scanned the lot spaces over with my headlamp, hoping that I would discover what may had been overlooked by everyone else in the past day. I searched along the walkway leading to the entrance of the salon and again there was nothing positive to report. Sadly, we struck out for a third time. I don’t go down easy without a fight to the finish but this particular search in these three locations were definitely done and over.

Once I finished packing up my car with all of my metal detecting equipment, I walked over to Debra’s vehicle and we stood outside to review everything that we had covered up to that point. My down and distraught client kept a really great attitude the whole time and was quite upbeat. Even at that point she was still trying to look at the bright side regarding the fact that her family was healthy and safe and that she shouldn’t continue to let the situation bother her. However, I kept reminding her that the search was not completely over.

From everything that Debra had told me from the beginning when she and her husband packed their suitcases up to leave the hotel, all the way until she realized her ring was gone at the nail salon I felt that something didn’t completely add up. She did say that her ring was loose on her finger, which led me to believe that if she didn’t remember taking the ring off at the dermatologist or even at the nail salon, it was quite possible that the ring was still in her possession and that it had never slipped off her finger at any of her stops that day. I actually reminded her of this fact throughout our investigation starting at the dermatologist’s parking garage. I then reminded her again at the Starbucks and finally while we were searching the salon parking lot, I told her that same theory again. Now it was time to encourage her with that same hunch once again just before we would say goodbye for the evening.

I told Debra that it was very possible that the ring slipped off of her finger while she was packing up her things and placing her clothes inside her suitcase and laundry bag back at the hotel. Or, the sentimental piece could have slipped off of Debra’s finger back at home while transferring clothes from one place to the other just before leaving to do some of her errands. When she was at her own property she had mentioned that she had done very little checking for the ring inside her suitcase and what was placed in the clothes hamper bag to be washed. I believed that it was a good chance that Debra might find the ring somewhere buried in the suitcase or in something that had already been transferred into their hamper before she left to go take care of her errands. I considered this to be a viable scenario because if the ring was as loose as she told me it was, I didn’t think it would have survived staying on her finger throughout the day. With all of the physical movements that were made from the time she started packing her things up until she got home and began to unpack a few things, there was a very high probability that the ring was still waiting for her to discover it back in her home.

Debra appreciated my hopeful words and thoughts and she promised that she would let me know if anything turned up. I asked her if it was okay if we said a prayer, asking the Lord to lead her to the ring if in fact the piece of jewelry never left her house from the time that she had returned home from the hotel. She gladly welcomed my prayer and we bowed our heads there in the parking lot. Then, once I finished asking the Lord to guide her to the ring, I requested one last thing of her. I asked if she would call me if she found the ring. But if it didn’t show up I asked Debra to text me letting me know that the mystery still continued. That way if I saw a call come through I would know that there was something wonderful happening on her end of the line! She thought that was a great idea and we parted ways.

Later that night, as my wife and I were watching the Academy Awards, my smartphone began to ring. I looked down at the caller ID and it turned out to be Debra’s cell phone number! Immediately I knew what that had meant! She must have found her beloved engagement ring! I took the call and immediately I heard jubilation and happiness on the other end! Debra, indeed had found her cherished keepsake! With great excitement I yelled, “You found it! You found it, didn’t you!” Debra answered with great joy, “You were right. Brian, you were right the whole time! It was with my stuff! I found it in the middle of the clothes in our laundry bag! We would have never found it without your help as you encouraged me to check through all my clothes and through the laundry bag and that’s where it was! It had never left my house after getting back from the hotel! We would have thrown all of the clothes along with the ring in the washing machine and who knows what would have happened to it then! I can’t thank you enough for encouraging me to check my things! You said it, you did say that you had that feeling all along even as we were checking all the other spots! Thank you so very much!”

I was so delighted to hear this amazing news! Debra’s most treasured piece of jewelry was found an hour after she had arrived home! She told her husband that she had a homework assignment to do which was to carefully look through her clothes piece by piece as I had done with her bag and coat earlier that evening. After searching through the suitcase, the laundry bag was the final spot left to check out. That’s where she finally discovered the beautiful treasure which was resting in the middle of all the clothes in the laundry bag!

The nightmare was finally over! This very happy moment made me smile from ear to ear and all of us celebrated for a good while on the phone! Debra shared that even one of her children began to cry because of how happy mom was again! From the moment that the ring was discovered until the time I was informed of the marvelous news, the child was still welled up with tears of joy! I listened to all of the steps that Debra took that led up to her finding the ring in the laundry. It was absolutely wonderful! I was so moved by all of the emotion that was taking place on the other end of the phone that I requested a moment of thanks and praise to the Lord for what was eventually found. Debra gathered her family near the phone and I led us all in a time of acknowledging the goodness of God with the recovery of this priceless possession! What a special evening it was!

After many more thanks and expressions of appreciation that were exchanged between both sides of the phone, we said our goodbyes. Just as I ended the call and started walking back to the living room to resume watching the awards, I smiled and suddenly thought to myself that this special ring recovery story could have received its own Academy Award for being a screenplay with the happiest of happy endings!

 

Testimonial

“I contacted Brian late on a Friday evening after I had lost my family heirloom diamond engagement ring earlier that afternoon. After searching and searching where I thought it slipped off my finger I put up signs and realized I needed a professional. Brian got back to me the next morning and was extremely kind and responsive. We spoke over the phone and he gathered additional information and then (since I had put up signs and searched already) we made a plan to meet the very next evening (Sunday).

I met Brian in the first spot where I thought I had lost it. He searched the parking lot as well as my car, bag, jacket – basically anywhere it could have gone missing. I was pretty certain it slipped off my finger and I knew the approximate timeframe, I just didn’t know where it happened. Once again, Brian was so kind and incredibly thorough during the whole process. He went with me to two more locations where I thought it could have been. He kept talking me through everything and was so positive as we looked for the ring.

By the end of the search we still did not find it. I was pretty sad but Brian was as well. It was clear that he cares very much and really wants to help people find their missing items. We had a good talk and he again helped me think through all my steps that day. As we did I mentioned that I had put away some laundry in a bag that day before I went out. He instructed me to thoroughly search the laundry and my luggage (I was away that weekend) and he told me that he believed in his heart I would still find it. I wasn’t sure myself but his optimism was infectious.

Soon after I got home I let my husband know that I didn’t find the ring but I had to search the laundry. An hour later I searched the bag item by item very carefully just like I saw Brian do as he searched my coat and bag. I got to the very middle of the pile and SURPRISE – there was my ring sitting right there!!! It had slipped off while I was gathering laundry and I had not realize for about two hours while I ran errands. I called Brian and he was so happy. I absolutely credit Brian with playing a major role in finding the ring and believe that if i had not reached out to him I may not have found it. Most likely the laundry would have been thrown in the machine and who knows what may have happened to the ring from there. Thank you so much Brian for all your help!

If you are missing something of great value or importance to you please reach out to Brian – he is wonderful and he will help you to the best of his abilities to get it back!”

Metal Detecting Lost Engagement Ring In Ashburn, Virginia…Found

from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Amie’s 14 karat White Gold Engagement Ring

 

Sometimes, we conclude the very worst about a situation, when in reality, it may not be as bad as we thought things were after all! In this search account, you will see illustrated exactly what I am talking about!

I was in touch with a woman named Amie who had lost her engagement ring about a week prior to us talking on the phone. She did everything to try to retrieve her ring that had gone missing over the previous weekend. Amie and her husband took all of the right steps to attempt to find or get back her beloved keepsake.

The story goes like this. One Saturday afternoon, Amie left her house in Ashburn, Virginia, to take her daughters out to the soccer game that they would be competing in. As the girls left the house, one of them asked mom about her beautiful diamond engagement ring that she was wearing. It sparkled brilliantly in the light and the daughter to notice of it. She asked, “Mom, why do you wear that ring?” Amie shared the significance of the ring and what it meant to her. I’m sure she even cherished it more as she reflected on the sentimentality of how she received it. They talked all the way to the car and then headed for the game. Ironically, without knowing it, the ring would be the subject of many more discussions in the next few hours and to into the next week

Like a good soccer mom, Amie hung out on the sidelines, cheering on her daughters’ team. Little did she know or imagine that there would come a real trial upon returning home from the match.

After the game, the daughters were driven home by their mother. It was not until Amie arrived back at the house that she realized that her engagement ring was missing! She looked everywhere for it. She knew that she took it with her to the game because Amie remembered talking about the ring as they headed for the car. But what happened to it? It had disappeared! She concluded that it must have fallen off sometime during the soccer game. She checked the car thoroughly but nothing showed up. That’s when the big search began. Amie drove back to the soccer field and checked all of the places where she walked and stood. Still nothing was found. She checked with the other coaches who were playing their teams on the field when she traveled back to the school where the games were played. No ring was turned in. You can only imagine how upset and frustrated she was for having no explanation as to how the ring fell off of her finger.

Amie and her husband Tim continued searching, including acquiring a metal detector to search the field more thoroughly. But still there were no happy findings. They exhausted all of their means for searching and so they let the soccer association and the school building know about the disappearance of the ring, just in case somebody turned it in. Amie also put an ad out in Craigslist, hoping somebody found the ring and would respond to the online appeal.

Amie’s Gorgeous Diamond Engagement Ring Found After A Week Gone Missing!

Well, almost a week would pass, and still the ring did not surface. Amie and Tim were perplexed and saddened, thinking that she may never see the ring again since days had already passed.

Finally, after reviewing my credentials online, Amie reached out to me for help. She shared everything that had happened and everything she did to get word out about the ring’s disappearance. After listening carefully to her story, I asked her a whole list of questions to make sure that I had all of the details down. I also wanted to make sure that she had exhausted all of the search possibilities, including looking in her house more carefully. She and Tim did a careful search and she concluded that there was no way the ring was in the house, especially because she left the house with the ring and when she returned shortly thereafter, she realized that the ring was not on her finger.

I agreed to drive to Ashburn, Virginia and to first search the soccer field and surrounding areas where Amie walked on the day that the engagement ring disappeared. Tim met me out there during the last hour of daylight and he guided me to the places that I needed to detect. It took 3 hours or so to finish my search on all of the grassy areas. Most of the detecting was done in the dark with my headlamp on high beam. The 14 karat gold ring was nowhere to be found. I then resolved to check Tim’s vehicle in the parking lot of the school that we were at, which was the SUV driven on the day that the ring was lost. We talked a little about golf as I thoroughly searched it from top to bottom (Tim is a professional golf instructor! He has met, worked with and / or instructed some notables such as President Obama, Tiger Woods and a young Naomi Watts and more!). I was hoping to have a fun discovery for Tim and Amie by the time I finished looking over the vehicle, but there were no encouraging reports to share.

There were only two more places for me to check after I finished with the field and with the SUV. First, was to search the grass areas along the walkway leading from their resident’s parking lot right up to the front door of their house. Secondly, the other location was to search the inside of the house. I started with the outside areas and worked my way to their front door. I wasn’t shaken or placed in a state of doubt regarding the continued search efforts. I knew that this beautiful piece of jewelry could have fallen off Amie’s finger as she walked back to the house following the soccer match, or that she lost it upon entering her home just prior to her realizing that it had gone missing. In fact, I was so confident that we still had a chance to find the ring and that it may not have disappeared on the field all along, that I specifically requested that Tim return inside the house and begin to search the first floor of the home. He was totally up for the challenge! I told him that in my experience, many times the missing ring ends up being discovered in the house and was never left on the ground outside somewhere. In many situations, it’s waiting for someone to find it inside the house! I also told him that I hoped that he would find the ring because “us husbands” need all of the points that we can earn and this would greatly score him some big numbers if he ended up finding the wedding band! Tim agreed wholeheartedly and he headed inside to conduct a more thorough search based on my encouragement and instructions as to where to carefully look.

Tim and Amie, Happily Ever After Now That Her Lost Ring Was Found!

As I was metal detecting the grass sections, slowly walking closer and closer down the walkway to the front entrance of Tim and Amie’s house, Amie approached me in tears because Tim had just shared that our search efforts at the school came up empty handed. Honestly, she had lost hope at this point. I talked to her and encouraged her by sharing that we still had plenty of areas to check: all of the footage remaining outside for me to detect, and all of the first floor of her home! I expressed my confidence by stating that I sent her husband inside to search and that he could find the ring somewhere in the house and I still had room to discover the ring in the grassy areas along the sides of the walkway. She appreciated my positive stance but she also reminded me that she couldn’t imagine the ring being inside because when she re-entered the house with the girls that afternoon, she wasn’t wearing her ring as she did when she left the house to go to the soccer field earlier in the day. I proposed the idea that perhaps the ring fell off her finger just soon after she arrived back home. It would be improbable but still possible in that small window of time to have lost it on the first floor!

Well, the improbable became possible! Moments after I attempted to infuse some fresh hope into Amie, Tim came strutting out of the house and down the walkway where we were conversing, and he had some terrific news! He got his wife’s attention to look and see what was in his hand! He found the ring! Yes! The diamonds were sparkling everywhere in his palm as I brought the headlamp light near to them! He listened to my instructions to search the floors more carefully and to not leave a spot unchecked! And boy did it pay off! Remember, the engagement ring had gone missing for nearly a week! Well, it was finally found and it was spotted by Tim under the computer table where all of the power cords and power strips were located! At first, I observed that Amie was in such disbelief that Tim had found the ring because she was acting kind of passive and not understanding to what Tim had discovered. I think she thought it was some other ring! So Tim made it a whole lot more clearly by showing her the gorgeous white gold band covered with diamonds on top as he opened his hand some more! Then, it was if the sun had come out in the middle of the night and her countenance started to greatly change! A huge smile overtook the previous dim look of sadness and reality began to set in! The ring was found! She was going to wear it again! It was back in her possession! Amie almost couldn’t believe it, although she began to slowly get convinced that she wasn’t living a dream! She cried many tears of joy and hugged her beloved husband over and over again! It was such an amazing sight to see! I couldn’t be happier for her! Then, I was able to properly gloat a little by reminding her that I did say that the ring could be just feet away from where I was searching, and Tim was the hero to set his eyes on the prize! I high-fived Tim and we all rejoiced with hugs at the discovery!

So, in conclusion, it turned out that the ring did return home from the soccer match. Here is the explanation as to what had happened: When Amie entered the house upon returning from the soccer game with the girls, she took both of their string backpacks and placed them on their designated hooks in the coat closet. Apparently, the ring must have been pulled off her finger by one of the strings of one of the backpacks, it slipped off her finger when she placed the backpacks on the hooks and it hit the hardwood floors and rolled under the computer table where it remained until Tim conducted a more aggressive search! I couldn’t have been happier for the couple! The search was over! The ring was back on Amie’s finger again, and she was one relieved young lady!

That night, the three of us celebrated for a while longer before I packed up my gear and headed back to my car to prepare for the journey home. It was a wonderful search and a very successful ending to my day! Tim and Amie were relieved and overjoyed! The mystery of the lost engagement ring was finally solved once and for all!

Lost Engagement Ring Found During In-House Search…Washington D.C.

from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)
Contact: 1-301-466-8644

Megan’s Family Heirloom

Blue Sapphire Encircled with Diamonds Engagement Ring

 

Not all searches are outside! This story is about an IN HOUSE search! They are not as common, but I do get calls to come out and search for missing items inside homes where people have looked and looked and nothing would come out of their “hours into days” searches. What a fantastic story this is!

I got a text and call from Megan who sounded frantic about the disappearance of her irreplaceable engagement ring! This ring was handed down from her grandparents and Megan and her fiancé’ designed a new ring setting for the beautiful blue sapphire stone and diamonds surrounding the large stone. She checked out The Ring Finders directory and then contacted me immediately. I asked a billion questions about where she and her fiance’ Danny looked in their apartment. I asked if toilets were flushed, if the garbage and litter box were searched and then thrown away. I asked about the garbage disposal, checking clothes, looking in the washing machine and searching the dryer. So many more questions were asked. Megan and Danny reviewed their own in-house checklist and the ring strangely never surfaced. This went on for a very long time and then they started getting worried that the ring would never turn up.

Megan shared the disappearance story like this: Most nights, she comes home and begins cooking dinner. She takes off her engagement ring and places it in her pants pocket. She hovers over the kitchen sink and does all of the food preparations. The night of the disappearance, Megan remembered putting the ring in her pocket in order to slice and dice vegetables. She finished making dinner and the engaged couple enjoyed their meal together. It was sometime later that evening, after all of the dishes were washed and all of the pots and pans were put away, that Megan remembered that she had not placed her ring back on her finger. She reached into her pants pocket to retrieve the ring and it had vanished! She checked again and again and again! Danny would get in on the search and he too checked her pockets several times before searching the rest of the apartment.

 

On the phone with Megan, I continued to give suggestions as to additional places to search following a very extensive interview with her to gain the entire story of what she was doing prior to the disappearance of her beloved engagement ring. I then went back to asking questions, and finally we had exhausted every angle to this mystery. I gave Megan a list of places to re-check and check again and again! Many a times people are so close to finding the object but their eye or hands are just not in tight enough focus or not connected enough with their touch to realize the item is really right in front of them! I asked Megan to spend another few hours dedicated to searching the apartment one more time with Danny and then to call me if nothing turns up.

Several hours later that same day, Megan and Danny called me once again and shared that they had come to the place of exhaustion. They needed another pair of eyes! This is exactly what I bring to the “scene of the crime” – another vantage point, another angle, another way of looking at the same things that others have already observed and searched. So, I headed to Washington D.C. after coming from Annapolis, MD, and met the young, frustrated couple outside their lovely apartment complex just north of Georgetown.

 

Danny and Megan were sitting out front on a ledge waiting patiently for my arrival. I felt so bad for them because they had given it everything they had to find the ring, but still nothing turned up. We greeted one another and then the three of us headed to their apartment to conduct the search.

The first order of business was to check the garbage disposal. Nothing! Next, I had them bring all of the garbage in house to me (trash from the kitchen, bathrooms, office and bedrooms). I checked with my metal detectors and only trash metals were discovered – no jewelry. Before searching each room, I took off my gloves and called for Danny’s attention who was getting additional trash from one of the rooms. I essentially said, ‘Hey Danny, do you mind if I metal detect your fiance’s pants?’ (refer to the video account for the exact quote). It sounded quite odd at the time, but I wasn’t intending there to be anything weird sounding about it, but we all laughed! Danny answered back something like, ‘If Megan is o.k. with it, I am good.’ (again, refer to the video for accuracy on this). I proceeded to declare, “Bring me the pants!”

Megan brought the pants and I instructed her to lay the pants over a wooden chair for me to use my detectors to analyze the garment. There were two zippers on this very petite pair of pants, but no other metals were sewn on the garment. The couple swore by their multiple attempts in searching to find the ring in the pants but they said they both kept coming up empty handed. I explained to them at some point in their apartment and on the phone earlier that day that by them checking all of those times really didn’t mean a thing anymore! Why? Because they came up empty handed and because I find items all the time where people have checked over and over again but came up with nothing! That’s why I was called to come over and conduct a search myself as if one had never been conducted previously!

You’ve got to watch the video for the conclusion to this story! See below!

 

Spoiler Alert!

 

I worked my way into Megan’s pants pockets and placed my finger in the very petite spaces right down into the crevices of where the seams met. I finished checking the first one and proceeded to check the second one. I recall hearing the couple share that both of them had checked over and over and both of them concluded that the ring was definitely not in Megan’s pockets because that was the whole reason that they invited me in on the search! Well, as we were all talking, I made my way deep into her second pocket (remember the pants were draped over a wooden chair). I recall spending a good amount of time making sure my finger didn’t miss a thing in there. And it was a good thing that I took my time, because as we were all talking, my finger felt something hard deep into the tiny pocket! I mean tiny! It was wedged all the way into the deepest space where the seam closes up. I dug the object out and my finger naturally slipped into the center of the object and that’s when I knew that I had found what this beloved couple was looking for! I found the gorgeous sapphire and diamonds engagement ring! I brought it out of the pocket, kept it between my fingers and shared the awesome reveal! I didn’t have the positioning to do a fake-out because the couple was looking on and I thought it best for Megan and Danny to just get the pure pleasure out of seeing the ring reappear out of the very place that Megan had remembered tucking it in her pants pocket all along! They were so happy! I could not have been more excited and relieved for them after the panic that they experienced for th elast couple of days!

I am beyond thrilled for this lovely engaged couple, that I could be a part of finding  something so precious as this family heirloom engagement ring that had gone missing  (I believe the ring gets modified with additional diamonds each time the next generation in the family receives the ring)!

I found out later that the ring may never have been recovered or that it could have been permanently damaged with the precious stones lost forever, because the pants may have ended up at the dry cleaners or in the washing machine / dryer soon thereafter! So glad we found the ring before anything unfortunate could have happened to such an “endless story of love”!
