Lost engagement ring throwing frisbee in Lincoln Park, Chicago.

The Joys of summer!! Received a call to look in Lincoln Park in Chicago for an engagement ring. The Diamond has been passed down for several generations. They didn’t want to tell the parents they had lost the ring. This newly engaged couple even bought a metal detector from Menards. It drove them nuts!! She lost it throwing a frisbee on a wonderful cool summer day. Her friends along with dogs searched frantically to no avail. The search area was fairly extensive. They had already searched for hours. In speaking with the client, I explained I would search for 3 hours for the showup fee. He suggested that it might take longer. I got the impression that they wanted me to hunt until it was found!!

I arrived with two detectors, my CTX 3030 and my XP Deus. I set up a very specific program for white gold on the CTX. I discriminated out all silver and high targets and made a very narrow pattern. I adjusted the gain so he could tell if it was a surface find. I trained the client on how to swing the coil, showed him exactly where the ring should come up on the screen, told him to look for shallow signals, and gave him a pinpointed.

In the meantime, I lay out gridlines as I was trained to do by archeologist. If I was going to be there until I was successful, I needed to make sure I hunted the area only once. So off I went. Meantime I suggested to the client that they hunt away from my grid patterns.

Guess who found the ring!!

I heard a sound of excitement turned around and they were holding the ring in disbelief. She was almost hyperventilating!!

Lost Wedding Band Vancouver, BC…Found

Rings get lost…It happens!

I was away in Europe when I got the phone call from Fran about her husband Dan’s lost ring. I told Fran I’d be back in a week and I would come out and find the ring for them, I forgot. I got the call yesterday to remind me about the ring in the garden and I apologized and met them the next day and found his lost wedding band of 25 years. Fran told me that the ring was made up from her old gold rings so that was very special indeed.

It was lost in the front garden and I found it with my Minelab CTX3030.

The wonderful thing about this couple is they grow flowers for charity in their backyard. How wonderful and thoughtful of them to do this and what a great way to give back! Dan put together a wonderful bouquet of flowers for my wife who wass very excited when I presented them to her when I got home…Thanks Dan & Fran!

True 24K Mens wedding band found at Montrose Beach in Chicago

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-206-8476

Got a call to look for a gold ring on Montrose Beach in Chicago, Illinois today. It was a solid 24K gold mens wedding band. I asked the owner if he knew that it was 24K. He said yes. It was made by a designer who had made similar rings for his parents. Since I had never hunted for a true 24K ring before, I wasn’t sure where it would ring up on my 3030. Since it was in dry sand, I used the 3030 which will show me the item very clearly. It rang up as a solid 12/47!!! Since it showed bright red solid on the screen 2 inches deep, and there was no trash in the area, I decided to dig it even though it came up as a quarter. BINGO! I was surprised it came in as high. Thought I would share this with you. Ive never had a gold ring come in that high on the screen.

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring at Spanish Banks Dog Park, Vancouver BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Yesterday at around 5 pm I received a call from a young man named Adam who asked me if I was the guy who found rings…I said ”I’m that guy”

He told me his wife had lost both of her rings in the sand and after 5 minutes they found the wedding band but they couldn’t find the platinum engagement ring.

This is most common as its a thinner band and harder to see and if you walk on it, its gone from sight.

I was  getting ready to pick up my grandson so I headed out to help them right away, he said that he and some other people at the dog Park/ beach were searching for it and I told them to stop as they could bury it deeper and make it difficult to find.

I grabbed my Minelab CTX 3030 and headed to the beach, when I got there I was greeted by Adam who was happy to see me but anxious to get started with the search.

Sitting on a log nearby was a couple of people that helped the young man and his wife search for the ring, they told me that they had invested interest in the search and wanted to see a happy ending.

The young man’s wife went home to get dinner started for their two young children so you can imagine her concern. Well I started the search in the area that they found the first ring and when It wasn’t there Adam said that his wife did go out towards the water at low tide.

I wasn’t finished searching the hot zone when I got a good hit (1310 on the CTX) and I knew this had to be the ring, I bend down and reached into the sand and pulled out a beautiful platinum diamond ring! It took about 2 minutes to find his Smile! The lady and her husband who were watching the search were as excited as we were to see it!
