Sanibel Island — Diamond and Gold Pendant Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

We received a call from this lovely gal who had lost her 1 carat diamond pendant in the front yard of her home.

While taking her dogs out, the dogs became entangled in their leashes around a tree.  In all the commotion a friend had noticed her chain which was still around her neck had come undone and the pendant had fallen off into the grass below.

Florida grass is very thick and they were unable to locate the diamond pendant.  To make the search even more difficult, there is very little gold on the pendant, so not just any metal detector would be able to locate it.  That’s when we received the call to see if we had the proper metal detecting equipment that would be able detect such a small gold item.

After discussing the situation, my wife and I felt confident we would be able to find the pendant and we made arrangements to stop by on our way home from a weekend getaway—which happened to fall on December 25th.

In less than 10 minutes of searching and much to her surprise, the pendant was found.

It makes us truly happy to see the amazement and skepticism disappear when a once lost item can be found and returned back to the owner!

 

 

Diamond Ring Found & Returned — Punta Gorda, FL

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

I received an email from Presley requesting my assistance in recovering her lost ring.  She was referred to me by her friend who I had helped find a ring for last September after the hurricane.   I made contact with Presley and she explained how she had lost her gold diamond ring in her private pond and could be in water as deep as 6-8 feet.

After several conversations and lots of consideration of how to tackle this ring recovery, I made arrangements to meet her.  After assessing the pond (and hoping there were no alligators) I decided to first see how solid the bottom of the pond was and in how deep of water the ring might be in.  Not long after entering the pond, I got a hit on my metal detector at a depth of under five feet.  Sure enough, after a couple of attempts, the ring was in the scoop.

The smile on her face tells just how happy she was to have her ring back on her finger where it belongs!
