Ring Found, Orange Beach Al

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

Tess lost her absolutely beautiful wedding and engagement rings while vacationing at the beach. She and friends searched the beach for hours, sifting the sand with no success and it was getting dark. She called me at 9:30 that evening asking if I could help. After discussing details of when and where, it was the best guess than it was lost either on the sandy beach or in the water. I said I would help and I would be there at daylight. Tess met me just as the sun was up enough to see and reviewed the area to search. It was a fairly large area. I decided to search the beach first before lots of people showed up and before the umbrellas went up. The search took about 2 hours. When looking for a gold ring, depending on the metallurgy it could mimic just about any other commonly found metals. Because of that fact I had to dig every signal. I did lots of digging on that beach and did not find her ring. Next step was to search in the water. Fortunately there was not that many signals in the water. I think I dug about 10 targets before coming upon a weird signal, the target data kept jumping around suggesting a soda can but the signals could have been a gold too, so I started digging. Digging has to be done with care to avoid and damage to precious property. It took me three gentle scoops before the target was in my scoop. The entire time I was saying to myself this is a soda can, I know it’s a soda can, but knew I had to dig everything. To my amazement Tess’s cherished ring was there safe and sound. I learn something new just about every time I do a ring recovery, her ring was really three rings probably with different metallurgy!

Heirloom Diamond Ring Recovered

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

This young lady lost her Heirloom diamond ring in the water at Orange Beach Alabama. I was asked to find it late In the afternoon, arriving an hour before dark, I searched until I could no longer see what I was doing and promised to be searching first thing the next morning. I arrived at day break expanding the search area and found her ring within about 45 minutes. I called her to deliver the good news(it was real early, I might have woke her up). She was happy to tears and put the ring back on her finger with noticeable resolve that she would not ever lose it again. I went home happy knowing I had made her day and saved her vacation.

Graduation Ring Recovered

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

This young man recently acquired his high school graduation ring that he was proud to wear. Unfortunately at a gathering of his buddies graduation night he high fived a friend with a bit to much enthusiasm that resulted in the ring flying off his finger, bounced across a wooden deck, onto a wooden dock, and disappeared into about 5 foot of water. Because it was dark the exact path and ultimate location could only be determined by sound. The boys rummaged around on the sandy bottom feeling with their feet with no success. They called me the next day and I started a search early that afternoon. The bottom had quite a bit of trash metal mixed with the sand as you would expect near a boat dock. I’ve a very good totality waterproof detector and carefully, slowly searched the area in a grid pattern, after about an hour searching I located his ring on the edge of a neighbors dock slip. He and a his friend were very excited to get the ring and we exchanged high fives all around… but with a little less enthusiastic force. 😎
