HOLLY RIDGE, NC

Taylor texted me August 15th with a message stating, “This is a complete shot in the dark but I lost a ring in the last week of July at Topsail Island”

This class ring belonged to her mother.  Taylor said she was given the ring when she was 6 years old and has worn it off and on for nearly twenty years.

She informed me the ring was lost above the high tide line.  I explained that the odds are low especially if it was lost in the ocean or close to a public parking access as other detectorist hunt these places on a regular basis.  Taylor still wanted me to give it a shot and my reply was “I agree.  If nobody searches, there is no hope.  We have found rings that were lost a longer period of time…”  Upon arrival, I was becoming concerned as there were 2 public parking lots within 150 yards of the beach house her family rented.  I started from the path to the beach house, walked just below the high tide line. I began my walk back towards the house when an iffy signal on my Minelab CTX-3030 caught my attention.  When on a recovery search, I dig almost every signal so my scoop went to work and plucked out her ring on the very first scoop.  I must admit, it even surprised me!  I was so very happy to find her ring that had been lost for 20 days.

Marshall informed me his ring was loose and before going out for a swim, placed it under a sun shade the family placed on North Topsail Beach.   At some point, the ring was dropped into the soft sand beneath the canopy.  Marshall contacted Crystal Coast Ring Finders the next morning.  He knew it was in a very small area and after digging up a broken zipper, his shiny ring was found a few inches away.  He was shocked his wife wasn’t extremely upset when he notified her of the lost ring and now, things are back where they belong.

Mother’s Ring Lost During Surf City Fishing Trip Found And Returned

  • from Emerald Isle (North Carolina, United States)

Lori & Herb were fishing in a favorite location on the Surf City beach.  This place was extra special to Lori as she had placed a few of her mother’s ashes in this location last year on her mother’s birthday July 13th.  Her mother had plans to visit Surf City but unfortunately, due to her health wasn’t able to travel to this very nice town.  Lori had always loved her mother’s ring growing up and when her mother passed away, Lori informed me it was the only item she wanted to hold onto as a keepsake of her mother and her parents 54 years of marriage.

While fishing the coastline just before sunset, Lori had went down to the water’s edge to wash her hands after baiting a hook.  The surf came in and her mother’s cherished ring slid off and buried into the sand.  Lori frantically tried to dig it back out of the beach sand.  Herb advised her it may not be a good idea as the movement could cause it to sink more or even be tossed to another location.  Herb followed a local Metal Detecting group on social media and immediately posted a plea for help.  My friend Justin saw this post just a couple of minutes afterwards and informed me to contact Herb ASAP.  Herb was amazed at how fast we contacted him and both Justin and I headed in their direction.  Fortunately, the tide was going out, so I knew we’d find the ring in the wet sand.  Upon arrival, Herb & Lori wisely marked the area with a glow in the dark stick since the sun had already set.  We began a search and my 1st target was a solid 12-07 on my Minelab CTX-3030.  One scoop into the sand and my Garrett Pro-Pointer AT sounded off on a golf ball size clump of sand. It was then, I noticed the white gold peeking out.  I grabbed the whole piece and placed into Lori’s hands.  She didn’t seem to believe what she was seeing as her mother’s ring was once more back in her possession.  Lori’s was filled with emotion and relief!  We had a very enjoyable conversation afterwards an as it was getting late, we parted ways.  I hope to see them on the beach again soon.

Lost Ring On Topsail Island Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

John & Sophie arrived at their North Topsail, NC beach house one day prior for a family vacation with great views and weather.  John had taken his wedding band of many years off to swim in the ocean.  The beach chairs were moved a few times because of the incoming tide and were eventually folded up and returned to the house.  John called me later that afternoon the ask if I could be of assistance.  Upon arrival John showed me the boundaries for my search.  There were very little signs of metal in the sand and at one point, I wondered if I had the correct search settings.  After a crusty penny, my next signal was a strong soda tab signal.  This time it was just the opposite!  John’s white gold wedding band was peaking up from the sand after my first try to brush the sand away from the target.  If I remember correctly, I think John said “well how about that!”   John told the neighbors that he didn’t need to sleep outside tonight!

Topsail Beach Lost Rings Found With Metal Detector

Chase was relaxing at Topsail Beach, NC.  When it was time to leave his group packed up the gear and headed back to the house.  It was then he realized he had removed his rings for safe keeping.  Later that day his father called Emerald Isle Metal Detecting.  I was preoccupied so I messaged a nearby friend to see if he would help.  Because of a Midnight tide Justin made plans for a late night hunt the very day the rings were lost.  Thankfully, Chase and his father remembered the general area they had set up and this made for a much shorter search and find.   After Justin found the 1st ring, he was able to locate the 2nd ring about 10 feet away.
