“My wife tossed her wedding ring into a patch of vines, leaves and brush. Really dense. I have a detector, but was only able to uncover a few cans and a Capri Sun. I am afraid this might be beyond your scope or perhaps you are up for a challenge. I am confident that its in this area (marin/tiburon) neighborhood. If you are interested, what is the typical reward offered and when are you available. I can send pics to give you a better idea of what we are dealing with.

I’m feeling desperate and my wife is heartbroken. The ring may not be worth a ton of money, but has sentimental value of course…and is not insured (my fault)…so of course I’m getting desperate.
Please let me know or maybe you know of someone that might be able to help. Thank you so much!”

The photos didn’t look promising. This is where he had been searching with his own detector, tearing out a lot of the ivy to find the ring:
But I had faith in my Garrett AT Pro detector, and found the ring in 7 minutes, inches from the curb, buried in the dirt. The ring had skipped along the pavement and bounced into the ivy. After over 2 months, and probably being stepped on, it had worked it’s way down into the soil under the ivy.
Beautiful, classic antique style, 1 carat, high clarity and color, old cut, cushion shaped solitaire diamond, with two rows of intricately hand set pave diamonds set around the top, and down the sides. The ring was custom designed by her father and made by his friend, both deceased.
Marshall, he wrote, “I can’t thank you enough for your prompt and professional service and for probably saving our marriage!”  Another marriage preserved, hopefully as durable as her ring!

Lost Tiffany Pave Diamond Anniversary Ring Recovered in Mill Valley, California 94941

This brilliant couple recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. Bravo for them. After a very pleasant dinner one night, Marylisa and Godfrey were happily clearing the table, when they accidentally knocked her ring off the high counter, where it started rolling across the floor and went straight out the back door, into the darkness.

Outside the back door is a wooden causeway to the back deck. The ring could have gone right and down a steep dirt embankment, straight and through the openings in the deck, or left into the garden.

I searched all under the deck, on a difficult steep dirt bank with low head clearance. I then searched father down the right bank in heavy brush. With Godfrey’s help, we dug out an old rotten stump that it could have fallen into. After about an hour of fruitless searching, we took a break and had a cool drink with Marylisa on the deck. They are very fun, goodhearted people. Recovering after a pleasant break, I got up, walked over to the garden on the left side of the causeway and found the ring sitting in the garden.

Nothing beats success. Marylisa was extremely relieved and Godfrey was beside himself. Another marriage saved, hopefully for another 10 happy years!

In an amazing coincidence, later that same day, I ran into their daughter and friends and the Sand Dollar Restaurant in Stinson Beach, CA. They had already heard the whole story of the recovery! It was a fun afternoon at the Sand Dollar.
