Sentimental Good Ring Lost in Sand .. Marina Del Rey, CA. .. Found with Metal Detector
Samantha had been visiting with friends that live on the beach front. The night before calling me she had run out onto the sand. Throwing her arms in the air, she felt her ring fly off her finger. It was a gold ring that her mother had worn for years before giving it to Samantha.
We had a lot of things in our favor that could make this a successful search. First, was the ring had been lost within the last 12 hours. Second, was Samantha had actually felt the ring leave her finger. Third, was they had a good recollection of the area, which was about 150′ x 150′. It was also an area of the beach that doesn’t get raked very often..
After Samantha explained what she had done when the loss occurred, I chose to start from the beach side, gridding in the direction of the walkway. A lucky choice, because on the third pass I got a nice gold tone from my new XP Deus metal detector. After digging the signal, there was her ring in my sand scoop.
Hugs from Samantha and her husband, Jason. Big smiles and another happy day for all..
