Naples Florida — Lost Ring in Sand Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

On January 4th of this year we received a phone call from Ron who had been vacationing in Naples Florida.  Ron had lost his wedding band in the sand while enjoying a day at the beach.  After returning home to California, Ron began searching the internet to see how to find a lost ring and came across our contact information.  After discussing the location and area of the beach where the ring was lost, my wife and I headed out around sunset to begin our search.  As there were several sunset watchers on the beach, we had to search around the watchers.  After a short period of time and no success, the sun had set and people were slowly leaving the beach.  With the beach area empty our search area had expanded and we went opposite directions in our search.  It wasn’t long until my wife heard that sweet gold tone from her detector.  One scoop of sand and the ring was revealed in the bottom of her scoop.

After returning to the car, we were happy to text a picture of the ring to Ron who verified it was his ring.  We made arrangements to mail the ring back to him and he received the ring a few days later.  The picture we just received below shows how happy he is to have his ring back.

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!
