Lost Ring On Topsail Island Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

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!

SURF CITY, NORTH CAROLINA

Newlywed Carrie was spending the last part of a vacation with her in-laws in a Surf City beach house.  She had given her rings to her new mother-in-law before swimming.  The rings were placed in a rear pocket.  It is believed wedding band slipped out of the pocket when a phone was pulled out for pictures.  Emerald Isle Metal Detecting was called that same day.  When I arrived, I was very glad they called me quickly and knew the general area the ring most likely would have been lost.  My metal detector, a Minelab CTX-3030 locked in on a strong 12-12 signal display and I was able to gently raise her ring from the soft sand of the beach.  Her husbands first words were “That’s amazing!”

 

Sentimental Ring Accidentally Lost On Emerald Isle’s Bogue Inlet Pier Beach, Found

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Miranda was spending the day enjoying the North Carolina sun and removed her ring before going for a dip into the Atlantic Ocean. It wasn’t until after they had left she realized the ring was lost. When she returned to search, someone told her there was a detectorist hunting the same area she had set up earlier. After an online search she messaged me and asked if I was the one on the beach earlier that day. Neither I or some my nearby friends who detect had hunted that area. I then proceeded to Bogue Inlet Pier to conduct a night hunt. Because of a misunderstanding of location the hunt took me almost 3 hours before I found the ring! It was a huge relief for the both of us as it was very hot even at 2:00 am and I was hunting the soft dry sand. I returned the ring to her later that afternoon!

West Virginia Woman’s Wedding Ring Set Lost At Emerald Isle, NC Found

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 Rhonda and her friends were having a Girls Getaway week at Emerald Isle, NC.  The young women were soaking their toes along the coastline and moving their chairs back with the incoming tides.  Trying to be safe, the rings were placed in a zipper pouch before heading into the water.  It wasn’t long after that the pouch had a hole in the bottom and the rings slipped away into the surf.  Ashlee, a friend in the group, found my metal detecting service and gave me a call.  After I heard the description, and knew the tide was now receding, I decided to give it a try.  Upon arrival, the beach had a steep slope leading down into some powerful waves.  I did my best to cover the area and was tossed off balance more than once.  After not finding the rings, I told the party I will return about 1 hour before low tide and try again.  Trying once again at this time period was very beneficial.  With some directional help from the girls, I walked straight down towards the waterline and found both rings in the wet sand and within 5 minutes of each other!  I know more than one of them thought the rings were gone forever!

This job has a very unique way of turning frowns upside down!  A true memory all girls will now have to share in a joyful way!
