Tears Of Joy When Lost Heirloom Ring Found In Ottawa

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

This was a tear jerker! Eric received a Ring Finders call this afternoon. 40 years ago Cinzia’s mother had given her a gold flower ring when she was just a child. She then passed it over to her 6 year old daughter. This morning on there way to school her daughter was skipping down the center of the walkway, a few blocks down the road her daughter noticed the ring was gone! Her daughter was pretty upset loosing this heirloom. A coworker told her about a metal detecting service to help find a lost rings, she did a search and found us. We arrived in the early afternoon and we could tell this ring had a lot of sentimental value. Cinzia showed us the path they walked. This was one of those really tough curb strip searches. A lot of  low tones with foils on the surface. We thought it would be a good idea to start our search where her daughter noticed it missing. The great thing is Eric and I are a team, Eric took the right side of the path and I took the left. We slowly inched our way along both side of the path checking every surface signal we received. After about a 1/2 hour of searching we had only covered 1/4 of the path way and I got a loud low tone.. I took out my hand held pin pointer and as it started to ring off I saw the glimmer of gold hiding in the grass! We anxiously walked back to her house to return it.. As she opened the door I held it up and asked, is this it? As soon as she saw it she gasped and put her hand over her mouth, yup my eyes filled up with tears lol! I love ring recoveries and we are so happy we received this call and we were able to help!
