***** Janet and Paul were attending a family reunion at a beach front home near San Clemente, CA. A beautiful home right on the sand with a couple dozen family members present when Janet lost her gold diamond wedding ring in the sand.
The evening before calling me most every body set up their beach chairs in the sand only 20 ft. in front of the beach house. Janet put her two rings in the pocket of the beach chair. Then after moving back into the house she could only find the engagement ring in the chair pocket. The wedding ring had to be in the sand only a few feet in front of the patio. That night and the next morning many of the group tried their hand at finding her ring while everyone sat on the patio watching the search.
After almost a day after searching without finding the ring. Someone in the group found my contact information while trying to rent a metal detector. I was able to meet Paul shortly after he called me. Walking through the house I seemed to have a big audience of family who were curious to see if I could find the ring. After they had all tried, using fingers, rakes and sifting methodically with a sand crab sifting tool.
Setting up the detector to eliminate some of the electrical interference from the building, I began my 20ft. square grid search. The ring showed up on my second pass just as I was telling my onlookers not to get excited when I dig a target because I remove all metallic items as I search.
Everybody cheered and smiled as I held up the ring for Janet. Not all searches go this well. Metal detectors work real good for finding a ring if the ring is there. The right tool for the right job. Finger dragging, rakes and sand crab sifters are not very effective for finding and important irreplaceable sentimental piece of jewelry like a wedding ring.
It still doesn’t bother me to search for hours to eliminate an area that may ring may be hiding. It’s all part of searching. Eliminate one area so you can go to the next possible hiding place. We post our successful finds but many people don’t realize that our unsuccessful searches lead into hour and hours of searching. It sometimes gets boring and discouraging. I still learn with every search and get more experience with each hunt, that’s rewarding.
