Last month I received a call from a guy that stated he lost his wedding ring in the ocean. His description of the ring was that it was white gold with about 5 or 6 diamonds in the front and that it had a band of 18k yellow gold running through the white gold except where the diamonds were. So I went to the section of the beach where he stated he was swimming at and hunted the area near the life guard stand just to the right of the beach entrance and hunted for hrs during the outgoing tide and finally gave up with no ring? Checking back with him he verified that I was in the right area and I told him I would try again the next day at low tide. I returned and to my surprise the life guard stand was now a bit further down the beach then the previous day and I began the search all over again. After digging some clad and a nice silver womans ring I dug a huge Triton tungsten ring with 9 diamonds and a band of 18k gold,Hmm? At the time I didn’t think it was his ring but after I called him he had found the receipt and stated he had been mistaken and that it was indeed a Triton tungsten size 15 with diamonds/18k wedding ring I knew it was his ring! He was so happy and relieved that I had found because he was so worried about informing his wife that he had lost it during their vacation. He lives in Albany,NY and I mailed it back to him and he sent me the pictures of him wearing it and a nice reward,Thank you! Another happy customer!
I received a call from Mike last night explaining that he had lost his platinum wedding band on beach. He took it off to put sunscreen on sitting it on his lap and forgot it when he got up to go swimming and it disappeared into the sand. I was busy picking family up at the airport at the time when he called so we agreed to meet first thing in the morning at 5:45 before the beach screener tractor came by possibly moving or burying the ring. Mike had taken good notes as to his location on the beach and marked it out so even tho when I arrived in the morning it was still dark out we were able to be in the right area. I marked the area out with 4 blinking glow sticks and began my grid search of the 20 x 20 area and about 15 minutes in to the search my White’s Beach Hunter id responded with the signal I was looking for and Mikes ring was in my scoop! Another very relieved and happy customer! The beginning of another great day!
After returning home from a ring recovery I found that I had a Facebook message from a friend stating that a friend of hers had lost his platinum wedding ring on the beach earlier that day while playing with his kids. I was then contacted by the owner of the ring who informed me that her husband was in front of the life guard stand in about knee deep water about 45 minutes before high tide. He put his hands in the sand playing with his daughter and as a wave came in he got up and his ring was gone! I decided the next morning would be the best time to hunt the beach to get to the area and after searching for about 40 minutes I found the ring about 6″ deep in the sand right in the area they described to me. Even tho it was 7am I called Debbie who was still local in their beach rental house as they just started their vacation a couple days before to come down to the beach and pick up the ring. I could hear her on the phone telling her husband I found it and he was just like No Way! and she replied Way!!! Enjoy the rest of your vacation,Glad I could help!
I received a call from Steve stating that he had lost his wedding ring while swimming in the ocean in waist to chest deep water the day before. After getting the information from him about the time of day of the loss and the tide schedule we agreed that the best chance of recovery would be the following day during the next low tide cycle. Arriving on the beach around 7pm I had to enter the water since the tide had not gone out far enough yet where believed the ring came off. Working in the surf with waves breaking on and around me and Steve and his wife watching from their beach chairs I started to get worried that it would an unsuccessful hunt as the sun started to set and water was still rough. Just as I was about to call it a day and now almost dark out I got a nice strong hit from the White’s Dual Field Pi metal detector in a trough close to shore. I scoop up the sand from about 2 feet of water and as the sand washed out of the scoop the white gold wedding band appeared! I didn’t tell Steve that I found it and walked out of the ocean as I was just packing it in for the night holding the scoop with his ring still in it out in front of me. As I approached him I said well you know it’s not easy but is that yours? Showing him the ring in the scoop. He was just full of amazement and thankfulness as he put the ring back on his finger! We went back to the house to tell his wife the good news and she was tearing up with happiness to have their wedding set completed again. Another awesome day of recovering priceless treasures!
I received a call from Tim asking if I could find his wedding ring in the bay off the end of a boat dock? He explained that he was playing with his son throwing him into the water when his ring slipped off sometime during. He stated that at low tide the water was between 4-5 ft deep and the bottom was a firm sand base. Arriving at the dock we went over the events and chose the area at the end of the dock and I entered the chest deep water with my White’s Beach Hunter id metal detector,scoop and floating sifter. After digging just a few trash items I received a nice signal and scooped up the sand dumping it into the sifter and started washing the sand/mud out and suddenly the bright gold ring appeared in the sifter! Everyone was watching from the dock above and seen it too and screamed with amazement He got it!!!! Another great recovery!
