Lost .7 Carat Diamond Earring in Park City, Utah- Found

I was in Texas all last week visiting family when I received a text message concerning a lost .7 carat diamond stud earring in Park City. Kirsten had went out to do some yard work and was cutting some low hanging branches when one of those branches struck her on the side of the head. She didn’t think much of it at the time but when she returned to the house, she found the backing to one of her diamond stud earrings in her clothes. She quickly realized that she had lost her earring and that’s when she reached out to me to come help. She had been piling up all the branches in one spot so when I got to the location, I first started to detect around where the branch hit her and then proceeded to follow the path to the pile of branches. Diamond stud earrings are very hard to find with a detector cause there’s just not a lot of metal to work with. I made some adjustments on the detector and as I made my way to the pile of branches, was very focused on small faint signals in the the tall grass. The grass was up over my knees so it was a truly a needle in the haystack type of scenario. I moved the pile of branches thinking that if the earring came out, there would be a good chance it fell to the ground when she was bending over to pile the branches up. Sure enough, my theory was correct and only after about a 30 minute search, I found the earring! Thanks Kirsten for reaching out and very happy I was able to help!

 

Lost Wedding Ring Near Kamas Utah- Found After Over a Year in the Creek!

I saw post on FB about a lost ring that happened over a year ago. Alisha and her husband had been up in the mountains when she had barely took her ring off and it dropped out of her hand and rolled off the bridge into the water. I had been talking to her for a couple months waiting for the spring runoff in the mountains to get up to the location where she had lost it. Saturday turned out to be the right day to go as the water in the creek had finally got back to normal levels. She told me it fell into the water on the east side of the bridge. The water was extremely cold and the current was strong! It was probably only 3-4 feet deep in that area but the slippery rocks and the current made it difficult. I started right in the area of where she explained she lost it and after several signals that included fishing weights, spinners, aluminum cans, and even a can of fishing bait, I got a clean 12-13 on the metal detector and after a couple handfuls of gravel, the ring appeared in my hand! The ring had not traveled very far from where it was dropped but it had spent over a year in the bottom of the creek!!! I called Alisha as soon as I got down from the mountain and she was so excited to hear the good news! She talked about how often she thought about the ring as she works for the forest service and would pass by the bridge. She was confident that one day she would see it again. Goes to show that things that are lost are not always lost forever!
