Lost Gold Ring Found On Surf City, NC Beach

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Bridget was walking with her friend and a dog along the Atlantic Ocean coastline on a Surf City Beach.  It may have been the dog on the leash but Bridget had felt her birthstone ring slide off of her finger into the high tide wave currents.  She was able to get a quick glimpse of the ring before a wave came in and moved items about.  Bridget called me the very next morning and I headed her way to meet her and her father.  She was very good at knowing the area the ring had come off and the 2nd target I dug was her beautiful gold ring laying under 4 inches of sand.  Bridgette had explained she received this ring on her 21st birthday and it had very special meaning.  I was very happy to see her reaction when she knew I had found it.

West Virginia Woman’s Wedding Ring Set Lost At Emerald Isle, NC Found

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 Rhonda and her friends were having a Girls Getaway week at Emerald Isle, NC.  The young women were soaking their toes along the coastline and moving their chairs back with the incoming tides.  Trying to be safe, the rings were placed in a zipper pouch before heading into the water.  It wasn’t long after that the pouch had a hole in the bottom and the rings slipped away into the surf.  Ashlee, a friend in the group, found my metal detecting service and gave me a call.  After I heard the description, and knew the tide was now receding, I decided to give it a try.  Upon arrival, the beach had a steep slope leading down into some powerful waves.  I did my best to cover the area and was tossed off balance more than once.  After not finding the rings, I told the party I will return about 1 hour before low tide and try again.  Trying once again at this time period was very beneficial.  With some directional help from the girls, I walked straight down towards the waterline and found both rings in the wet sand and within 5 minutes of each other!  I know more than one of them thought the rings were gone forever!

This job has a very unique way of turning frowns upside down!  A true memory all girls will now have to share in a joyful way!
