Mia’s Diamond Stud Earring – Lost, Found, Returned in Kerrville, Texas

from Kerrville (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-830-285-9935

I received a message from Mia requesting help in finding her lost diamond stud earring. Mia explained that she was positive she lost her earing in the living room or bedroom of her home. She said that she had gone through all her clothes and bedding and in the living room she had even vacuumed the rug (and checked the vacuum canister). She had not found the earring but was truly clear and concise of where she thought she lost it. I knew that the size of the precious metal around the diamond would be extremely hard to detect but decided it was worth a shot anyway. My wife, Kathy, went with me to Mia’s home. Mia showed us into the living room with beautiful oak flooring. Adjoining the sofa was a 5’x8’ double shag rug. Mia said she felt that the earring might have fallen into the deep shag rug. Running my AT Pro pick up every nail in the wood flooring and checking my pro pointer with other earring yielded not sound at all. At this point I thought the only way to find the ring would be a visible search. After combing through the rug for several minutes Kathy said to turn the rug over and beat on it! Sure enough, after following my wife’s instructions there was the earring on the floor! Mia was happy to get her earring back and I was glad I followed my wife’s instructions. Sometimes it takes more than fine equipment to fine that lost item!    Merry Christmas Mia!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

LOST TEXAS A&M RING FOUND & RETURNED NEAR KERRVILLE by CHRIS DEAN, TheRingFinders.com

Madi contacted me and said she lost her Texas Aggie ring at a Bachelorette party on the banks of the Guadalupe River (Kerrville, TX. area). She said she found my contact information on the TheRingFinders.com member directory. Madi was able provide a good description of where the ring might have been lost and even sent me a photograph of the area the ring should be located in. Due to the property being a vacation home I had to wait for the owners to return for the Thanksgiving weekend in order to gain permission for access.

I made contact with the property owners and set up a time on the Friday after Thanksgiving that I could conduct a search. They told me they had already purchased a metal detector to try to find the ring themselves but quickly found that without experience it was not fruitful. I assured them with my skills and the right equipment I would find the ring if is was there.

Friday turned out to be a gorgeous West Kerr County Chamber of Commerce type of day. A light breeze and the temperature nearing 80 degrees meant a short sleeve shirt. I arrived at the property and quickly did a reconnaissance of the area Madi had described. Lush green grass topped the ground meant the perfect place for a ring to hide!

After ground balancing my Garrett AT Pro I began sweeping the detector at the edge of the target area. It was quickly evident that there were many underground objects that made my machine sing. One pass in my grid line.  Two passes in my grid line. In the middle of my third pass – Bingo! That unmistaken tone of gold in my earphones. I looked down at the detector screen and saw the target ID at 76 and the target depth of 2-4″. I parted the grass and viola! Hidden from the naked eye was a ladies Texas A&M Class ring.

Gold deep in the grass!

 

 

The return is worth a beautiful smile.  Gig’em!

Sounds easy, right? Not quite! It takes: Buckets of pull tabs, pounds of shredded aluminum cans and many hours of swinging the detector while learning the sound tones of different metals. Like a detective, asking the right questions to narrow the search area. And of course, lots of dollars spent in equipment.
