Just before noon on Saturday (April 29th, 2023), I received a text message from Emily stating that she had lost both her 14k yellow gold engagement ring and wedding band by a grassy hill outside of a hotel in Florence, Alabama. Emily said she lost them the night before and that she and her husband, Mannon, had already tried searching with a cheap metal detector they bought from a local sporting goods store. They were leaving the next day to head home to Mobile, AL, which was about 370 miles south! Emily said that they were desperate to get the rings back. I had just gotten home from running some errands and was free the rest of the day. I told Emily that I would grab my gear and be on the way.
It was about an hour and 10-minute drive to the hotel Emily and Mannon were staying at in Florence, AL. When I arrived, Mannon showed me the area they thought the rings were lost in. There were a few holly bushes with those prickly leaves that the rings could have landed in, but I was going to save those until the end lol.
I turned on my Minelab Equinox 800 with the 15-inch coil and got to work. I found various trash targets in the lady’s gold range, but no rings. I cleared the main area up to the top of the hill and began expanding my grid outwards. About 30 minutes in, I had another good signal on my Nox 800, I bent down to check it with my Garret ProPointer AT, and found Emily’s gold wedding band hiding just beneath the grass! Emily and Mannon came over and were so excited that one of the rings was located. I said that the engagement ring was probably nearby. I glanced around and spotted it laying on the surface in plain view about 8 feet away! Emily and Mannon were so relived and thankful that both rings were found! They could now make the trip back home without leaving these symbols of love behind. The reason why I love being a Ring Finder! We chatted for a few minutes and then I was on my way back to Huntsville.
I’m always happy to help! Both Emily and Mannon were two more people that weren’t aware that a service like this exists. Emily stumbled upon the website while searching for tips to locate a lost ring. So, please tell your family and friends about The Ring Finders Metal Detecting Service! Looking forward to the next adventure…
