Lost Tungsten Wedding Band Kuhio Beach Waikiki…FOUND!!!
This ring find began just as I finished dinner when Giovanni who was on vacation from Maryland texted, “Are you available to retrieve a lost ring on Oahu? We are here until Friday.” I immediately called knowing the sundown hunters would be combing the beach. Gio told me he was in waist deep water at the Kuhio Beach lagoon when while catching a football his silver colored tungsten Wedding Band came off and disappeared in the sand. A few beachgoers pitched in but were unsuccessful in finding the ring. I told Gio I would grab my gear and head down to the zoo to park and we could meet at the beach. After I parked Gio and his lovely wife Shelia met me in the parking lot and we drove to a near by parking spot near where the ring came off at Kuhio Beach. Gio directed me to the spot he was thinking 5 feet from the breakwater. It was pitch dark but I was able to use the hotel windows and the wall as markers. I hunted along the wall to about 15 feet from the wall. On the return leg I found a screaming 14K Rose Gold Wedding band but not Gio’s ring. I went back ashore and discussed the depth of the water and Gio figured he must have been farther away from the wall. It was pitch dark but the Manticore light was enough to see what I was doing and I decided to try an in and out grid to get more distance from the wall. On about the fourth leg I got a screamer on the Beast and in two scoops Gio’s large size Tungsten Band was in the scoop. Gio and Shelia were very appreciative of the successful hunt and drove me back to my car at the zoo. We had a few laughs and a hug and they promised me a selfie when they got back to their room. See those smiles above…its what I love! Aloha to Giovanni and Shelia!
