I just turned on the TV to watch some football when I received a call that a Family Heirloom ring was lost while moving the wood pile. The young lady said she move it a few times to search for the ring with absolutely no luck. She then went out and purchase a metal detector and search for the ring. She then called in another metal detector person that she found on line, NOT The Ringfinders, He searched for over 3 hours with no luck.
When I got there Sunday afternoon and asked the different question about what and how she lost the ring. I started a search in the mostly likely places that the ring could have taken flight. With not finding the ring in those area in came down to an area that was cement with metal screening in the cement. I was several adjustments to my metal detector and started the search. I received a ring sound and separated the wood chips and dirt and came up with the ring. The woman was all smiles and thank you.
This ring find started out early in the morning and on a very well known beach that Detectorist go to. I headed out to the North shore and began the search. There was a few families on the beach but not in the area i needed to look in. After sometime of grading the sand i came across a good tone. There in my scoop a beautiful diamond band. I found 1 of the 2 lost rings and so i continued to search and not even a foot away i get another great tone and there in my Xtreme scoop i see the second diamond ring! I called Kissy Stadler up and let her know the good news… she was so happy! we were able to meet up in town before i had to work. Another great find and return.
IF YOU LOST YOUR RING AT THE BEACH GIVE KAI A CALL AT 808-699-0521
It was Sunday morning around 5 AM and I take a look at my missed calls while checking emails. That’s when I noticed there was a voicemail of a lost wedding ring at Sunset beach on the North Shore. I responded to the voicemail via text. The couple, Sean and Megan now were on vacation from Utah. We agreed to meet up so my family and I headed down to Sunset Beach.
When we arrived at their address Sean took us to the back of their beautiful vacation rental which is steps away to the beach. Meeting the family and getting the story on how Megan unfortunately lost her ring was heart wrenching. She was playing in the sun and enjoying the water with the kids and after sometime in the water she looked at her hand and noticed that her ring of 19 years fell off her finger and she didn’t know where! In desperation The family tried snorkeling but didn’t find it.
I gathered all the information I needed and headed down the beach. I asked Sean if he can grab a bunch of the white rocks in the sand to help line the bottom of the ocean floor as markers while I search and grid out the area. I decided to start from the deepest part and work my way to the shallows as the tide was on the rise! I did one pass around chest deep to over head and nothing. But, as I started to make my next line I got a loud “platinum” sound in the deeper part of the sandbar. I started to dig and fan all along looking and praying this is the lost ring. I then notice a ring, approximately 6” buried in the sand with the markings described of Megan’s ring, a big and thick Platnuim band with yellow gold that surrounding a diamond. I was sooooo excited to find it! As I grabbed it and looked up towards the beach where the entire family stood looking at myself and Sean, I held up her RING and Megan’s sister shouted… “I think he found it!” And the whole family was moved with emotions and tears as i can hear them excited and in awe. So, I handed Sean his wife’s lost but FOUND wedding ring. As Sean headed up the beach he met his wife in the yard and got on one knee to put back on her finger. The precious ring symbolized his love for her.
To the Stolhs … THIS FIND WAS ANSWERED PRAYERS! Another vacation saved and another happy ending! Glad to help and have a blessed time on the North Shore!
