I received a call from a woman named Pam who lost both her 14 karat white gold, 1 carat diamond engagement ring and her 14 carat white gold half infinity-style diamond wedding band.
She was driving into her neighborhood when she threw an apple out of her window in order to feed some deer that always hang out on the grass on the opposite side of the road. When Pam released the apple, both of her precious keepsakes went flying off of her finger!
Pam heard a “clink” sound coming from the direction of the pavement on the opposite lane of the street. It appeared that one or both rings had ended up hitting the concrete. The woman panicked and immediately pulled over to the side of the road in order to seek after her “jettisoned” jewelry. With all of Pam’s efforts to try to recover her lost rings out there in the dark, sadly she was unable to find even one of her possessions.
Early the next morning, Pam and her housekeeper returned once more to the search site to see if they could find the two sentimental keepsakes. However, after a very long time of combing over the road, curb and grassy areas (without stepping in the grass in fear that the rings would be pushed down into the ground), the two ladies finally gave up and returned back to Pam’s estate.
Though Pam was extremely disappointed and perplexed at the disappearance of her very special diamond engagement ring and diamond wedding band, she was not about to give up by any means. The young lady went online and looked for a metal detecting service in Annapolis, Maryland. One of my ring finding articles that I published on THE RING FINDERS website popped up on her screen and immediately Pam reached out to me by phone.
Later that morning, I drove out to the search site to meet up with Pam who showed me the “scene of the crime”. The woman was extremely helpful in showing me how she drove by and approximately where she threw the apple. My client even pointed out the apple which had landed up in the grass on the opposite side of the road. This was a very important piece of evidence which would help me narrow the section that I needed to metal detect.
Once I got all of the details, I returned to my car and retrieved all of the necessary metal detecting gear that I would use for the ring search. My biggest concern was that one or both rings ended up being picked up by an oncoming vehicle’s tire sometime during the night or in the early morning hours before Pam and the housekeeper arrived. It’s very easy to miss these little “halos” out on the street or in parking lots. So it was quite possible that Pam just did not see one or both of the rings while she diligently searched that night.
Once I made sure that there were no pieces of jewelry in the road or along the curb, I scanned the grassy areas starting closest to the curb and worked my way down the street. I made several passes (or grid lanes) that were approximately 60 feet in length. Each time that I finished another lane, I moved up the grassy incline another 4 feet and started a new pass.
I encountered quite a few potential signals during my search out there along the road. However, each time that I checked out the curious target at hand, it would end up being either a bottle cap or some small piece of scrap aluminum. I didn’t give up.
At some point, I hit another fantastic target signal that was located 25 feet from where the apple came to rest. I knelt down on the ground and used my pinpointer to identify the exact spot of where the piece of metal was resting. I am excited to share that I did in fact recover the lost diamond engagement ring! It was absolutely exquisite looking! Pam was down the street looking around the curbside areas when I discovered the special keepsake. I continued with hope that I would find the wedding band some place nearby to where I recovered the engagement ring. I so hoped it had made its way to the grass and not picked up by a tire.
I thought, ‘The odds that both rings made it across the road and that at least one bounced and still made it into the grass was very minimal at best to believe’. But I kept my hope alive that perhaps the wedding band traveled farther up the hill. Well, that wish certainly came to fruition because I did in fact get another great signal coming from my detector and it turned out to be Pam’s beautiful half infinity-style diamond wedding band! It was found about 3 feet away from the other ring and farther up the hill! I rejoiced within me knowing that my client would soon be reunited with her irreplaceable jewelry!
Pam could not have been happier to be handed her amazing rings and I thanked the Lord for answering our prayer that we lifted up to God before I began the search! What a wonderful moment that was to preserve more “symbols of love” and to allow for these special stories to continue through Pam’s family line from here on out!
