Lost Wedding Ring Found At Turtle Bay Resort Oahu

  • from Waikīkī (Hawaii, United States)

Ring Pic-1Ring Pic
Saturday, the North Shore of Oahu was going to be hit by a large swell. Consequently, on Friday afternoon, when I received the call from Chase and Karolina asking me if I could help them find a lost wedding ring, in the water near Turtle Bay Resort, I knew I would be up for a challenging search. I arrived at the search area at 7 am on Saturday morning, and after a brief hike we made it to an uninhabited beach full of Honus (Hawaiian Sea Turtles) basking in the sun. The empty beach was in a cove, so it was protected from the large swell. Quickly, I got in the water, and after 30 minutes in chest deep water, I heard a strong signal, and there in the bottom of the sand scoop, was that shiny band of gold…what a great way to start the day recovering Chase’s wedding band, and discovering a secluded beach on an island with a population of over 1 million. Another sweet morning in beautiful Hawaii Nei.

Lost Wedding Ring Found On Waikiki Beach

Lost ring Waikikilost ring waikiki-1One evening as I was sleeping, a nice lady named Carrie left a message on my voicemail at around 10 pm. She said that she has lost her wedding band at Waikiki beach and wanted to see if I could help her. I texted her back at 6 am thinking she would still be sleeping, but as soon as I hung up the phone she called me.
Carrie told me that the prior day when she was at the beach, she had taken her rings off and placed them on a towel, so that she could apply sunscreen. She then spent the day playing with her son building sandcastles and when packing up her belongings at the end of the day, she had forgotten to put her rings back on.
I let Carrie know that I had to work that day, but would meet her in the afternoon and try to find her precious wedding band. Apparently this wedding band was over 100 years old and was given to Carrie by her husband. The ring was given to her husband by his grandparents. Carrie came to Hawaii with her son to visit family and did not want to have to call her husband on the mainland to deliver the bad news. She said, “I need to find this ring.”
Every day and night people search the beaches at Waikiki with metal detectors looking for fresh drops. When I started my search for her ring, there was a man looking for hidden riches just a few feet from us. Timing and conditions are so very important when looking for lost jewelry at this popular beach. I marked the area off where she believed she lost the ring, and in about a half hour, the wedding band was back on her finger. A lost ring, an incredible find, the look on Carrie’s face when it was found was priceless. This is why I love looking for lost jewelry, to help others find their valuable treasures that are often irreplaceable.

Lost Wedding Ring Found At Waimea Bay

I received a call Saturday morning from Scott asking if I could help him find his wife’s wedding ring on the beach at Waimea Bay on The North Shore of Oahu. Apparently, she had taken it off, and laid it on her towel while putting on sunscreen. Unfortunately, it ended up in the sand. While on a hike latter that evening, she realized she hadn’t put the ring back on, and it must have fallen off the towel, when they packed up after their day on the beach.
I could tell by Scott’s voice, that he thought his wife’s ring was a lost cause.
I told Scott, that I almost always find rings that are lost in the dry sand at Waimea Bay, because of the clean sand and the lack of trash on the beach. So I met Scott and his wife Marianne at the beach at about 10:30 am and started marking off the area where they lost the ring.
Scott wanted to help. So I gave him the sand scoop, that I use to sift the sand. After about 30 minutes, I received my first strong signal and asked Scott to try the spot. He scooped a little sand, and I could hear the ring rattling around in the sand scoop as he sifted out the sand. The look on his face was priceless. He said, “No way, I can’t believe we just found it.”
Scott called his wife, who was back at the car taking care of the baby. He told her the good news. Losing a wedding ring can definitely spoil a Hawaiian vacation, and it’s such a pleasure to meet and help such nice people, like Scott and Marianne. It was another great recovery.

Aloha,
