Lost Family Gold Necklace at Bellow’s Beach…FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This necklace hunt began when I got a call from Makana. While enjoying the day at Bellow’s Beach on Oahu’s East Shore Makana picked up a beach chair and carried it to a new location. Unbeknownst to him his girlfriend Makana…Yes both are named Makana! had placed the Gold Necklace in the chair’s puka and when it was moved and shaken of sand the Gold Necklace disappeared. The family members combed and raked the sand but the Gold Necklace was never found and that’s when they reached out to me. Ironically, I was heading in that direction to drop off my detecting buddy Terry so I told Makana I’d swing by and see what I could do. Makana was waiting on the roadside and saved a parking spot for me. We headed down to the beach and Makana introduced me to his family members. I could see the sand had been moved around quite thoroughly so the grid was pretty much known. I fired up the Nox and started my grid search. The beach was clean but the first target was a piece of aluminum. Then I got a very unusual tone and dug a lead fishing weight but that wasn’t what I heard. Sure enough there was a nice #3 still on that spot and in one gentle scoop there was Makana’s Gold Necklace dangling from my scoop. I heard a few sighs of relief and I handed the necklace to the nearest family member. Everyone was very appreciative and gave thanks. Aloha smiles for Makana & Makana!

Scussett Beach, Borne, Cape Cod, Massachusetts – Bracelet Lost, Found & Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

The last day of vacation was not to be the last day on Sunny Cape Cod for Dargel. While tossing a football, running sprints, back flopping into the bay’s cool water somewhere along the stretch of beach Dargel’s very sentimental bracelet came loose, fell, and buried itself in the sand. Hours of searching until darkness set in was not enough time to find the bracelet. After flight changes and with a wing and a prayer the bracelet would be found the following day.

When I received the call, and after getting information about a lost bracelet, I knew I had to go. With such a large area to search I would need all the help I could get. I called Leighton, another Ring Finder, and we set up a meet time at the beach with Dargel. His world wide travel companion said that they would be in an army green Jeep Wrangler. OK, who would have known there would be two such Jeeps in the parking lot? It took a call before we found each other. Then it was off to the beach.

Unknown if the loss was in the water or on the sand, we started searching in the water then up the beach front to the dunes. Only a few targets were heard as we detected and gridding the best we could among some late day sun bather. It was my turn to leap-frog past Leighton, make my way further down the beach, stop, turn toward the water, and start detecting again. I heard a good signal which turned out to be a Matchbox car, and then a second car. I gave both cars to a young beach goer who took them to rinse them off in the water. My next signal came from a rather deep target, maybe another car, as I did not think the depth would be correct for bracelet to be at. I had to dig it anyway. WOW the rope bracelet now in my scoop had cubes on it with initials made of diamonds. NICE! Even better than nice, it was Dargel’s missing bracelet. A verification by a photo really was not needed as Dargel’s description would only match the bracelet I had in my scoop.

After some great conversation and taking of photos there was a quick good bye before Dargel was off to Boston and back to Cuba on the next day’s flight – with his bracelet. A terrific ending to two beautiful days. Look out in the next day as tropical storm Isaias will be over the Cape Cod Beaches. Dargel sure knows how to time his trip and is thinking about another trip back to Cape Cod, after having a jeweler repair the bracelet’s clasp.

Cherished Lost Diamond Bracelet in Sea Isle City,NJ Recovered by Ed Cropski

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

Today I went on a special hunt for a very special young lady . I was referred to her brother Eric by a friend of mine about my lost jewelry recovery service. Speaking with Eric he stated that his sister who has stag 4 cancer and partial paralysis in her hands and was unable to properly lock the clasp on her cherished gold/diamond bracelet that her father had given her when she was 16 years old and lost it off their dock at the shore house. Speaking with Eric he also stated that the dock area is scheduled to have a new bulkhead put in next week and feared the bracelet would be lost in the mud forever with the construction equipment. He explained that the area is basically water free during low tide hopefully assisting in the recovery which brought me to the idea of using my White’s Spectra V3i. Bracelets and necklaces can be tough items to find with a metal detector so last night I set up my White’s V3i with a 4×6 DD coil and my custom gold program that hit a test gold bracelet loud & clear. Thank you White’s Electronics, Inc. for the replacement coil for my magic wand lol! Eric stated that it would mean so much and be a miracle if I could find this for her. Pope Francis is coming to town this weekend so it’s the time for miracles! Packing my gear in the truck and feeling optimistic on a beautiful day I arrived at their shore house and was greeted by the woman parents as she was unable to attend and really felt a sense of welcoming. The tide at this time was still going out so it gave us some time talk and get to know each other before I would start searching for the bracelet. They were amazed that I provided such a service and that I had done over 30 recoveries this summer and many more in the past for people in need. Finally the water had gone out far enough to start the search and I stepped off the side of the dock into about 4 inches of mud but onto a firm sand base bottom. The area was approximately 10×20 including some under the dock walkway so it was going to take some time to search it thoroughly. Twenty minutes into the search I received a consistent signal from the detector and a Vdi reading of 10 on the screen. I carefully lowered my long handle scoop into position and scooped the mud into my floating sifter and rechecked the spot in the mud,I got the signal. As I started swishing the water around in the sifter the beautiful diamond bracelet came to life through the mud Yes!!! At this time her parents had gone into the house so I washed it off better and called them out. As they walked out on the dock and looked down at me in the mud I pointed to the sifter where the bracelet was now gleaming in the sun. The look on their faces was incredible! They actually both started tearing up when I handed it to them. I got washed up and they couldn’t wait to call their daughter and son Eric with the great news! What an incredible feeling and day it turned out to be for everyone! I love this hobby!12042071_10205140233776051_2071346797_n12047638_10205141392685023_816094294_n12063909_10205140233256038_1782929017_n
