Lost Gold & Diamonds Wedding Ring at Lanikai Beach…FOUND!!!
This ring find began when Nikki from Aiea, Hawaii reached out to me on the Metal Detecting Oahu Facebook page. I posted my number and she called immediately. While at Lanikai Beach with her children she had taken off her Engagement and Wedding rings and put them in a puka of her beach chair. After returning home she realized she had left the rings in the chair and when she went out to retrieve them the Wedding Ring was gone. She looked everywhere she could think of with no luck. Her only conclusion is it must have fallen out at the beach when she folded the chair. We decided to meet at the beach to ensure I hunted the exact spot in the dry sand. We had a little difficulty parking but finally were able to start the hunt. I started an East-West grid search and after covering the area thoroughly I only found a piece of aluminum. Nikki was sure we were in the correct spot so on a whim I adjusted to a North-South grid search. Boom! A sudden 9/10 on the Nox and after four scoops Nikki’s beautiful Gold & Diamonds ring was in the scoop. I walked over and pointed in the scoop. She shouted with joy and it was all she could do to hold back the tears. We hugged and I noticed her Pittsburgh Steelers keychain. Turns out although she is from Michigan she is a staunch Steelers fan. Soo happy we had a successful hunt. Remember boys & girls the 90 degree adjustment in the grid search made for a successful recovery. This has happened a few times especially in Waikiki sand. Aloha to Nikki!
