Mayflower Beach Cape Cod, Massachusetts platinum wedding band lost, found and returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Nicole’s call to her father was returned with a link to After a short conversation with Tim I was on my way to the bay side of Cape Cod. At the end of the road I tried to call Tim but due to No Cell Phone Service I could not contact him. He was somewhere out on the beach among the 100s of beach goers. One such beach goers was kind enough to let me use her phone to call Tim. When she heard me asking about the ring she was ready to tell me the story. It seams the loss was well known by many of the beach goers.

Tim showed up and off we went eager to start searching for his ring. After about 20 feet of searching to my surprise there were no signals. Oh, my mistake, I had left my detector set to a very specific setting to find a hearing aid. A quick change of a program setting and I was searching again. Quarter, soda bottle cap, 2 beer bottle caps and then the platinum wedding band was in my scoop. I left the ring in the scoop for Tim to remove and place on his finger. I wish I had my camera handy to catch the kiss between Tim and Nicole. As I didn’t and that they would not repeat it for a camera I will just have to settle on attached photos for the Book of Smiles.

In the short talk we had after finding the ring it was revealed that the ring went missing after re-applying sunscreen and not removing the ring from the beach chair’s pocket before moving the chair to a different location. The second bit of information was that Tim had proposed to Nicole on the same beach. Only fitting the wedding band was found and returned with enormous gratitude and smiles.

A Picture Narrows Search Area for Lost Ring: Dennis, MA

August 20th was one beautiful day at the beach that ended on a sad note due to a missing wedding band. Michael was enjoying the day of sun, surf, sand and picture taking to remember the beautiful day. Little did he know that four days later one of his pictures would aid me in finding his ring that had slipped from his suntan lotion applying finger.

An E-mail with the photo attached sent me to the location on one of the endless beaches of Cape Cod. I held the picture displayed on my cell phone trying to place myself in the location of where his photo had been taken. At the location, I see a beach goers blanket on the sand with a metal detector on top of it. I cut to the chase, I asked the owner if she had detected and found a wedding band. No, she had not. So I continued my search pattern. Another couple of passes and about 5 feet from the idle detector a strong signal rang in my ears. One scoop later and Michael’s wedding band was shining in the sunlight once again. After a short conversation with a few children that had been watching and showing them the ring and how the detector found the ring I was on my way home.

Michael had left the Cape and through E-mails I arranged the ring return to be made via the mail.
