I was sitting on the back patio waiting for my bride to get home. I promised her dinner out after just finding a ring for Queen (Previous Story). I was enjoying a beverage when she arrived. Then, my phone rang with a ring search. I think The Ring Finders’ wives are use to this drill. I answered the phone to talk with Chris. He told me how he lost his ring in the ocean earlier in the day and that now this spot was dry. With sunlight fading I jumped in the truck and headed his way. Chris, Anja and their son Leo were staying at one of our local camp grounds.

I met Chris at the front gate and followed him to the beach. I handed Chris my sand scoop and grabbed the rest of my gear. We walked to the area on the beach. As I was taking off my shoes, Chris used my scoop to draw a 20 yard square in the wet sand. He told me « It was in that box ».  Getting to the lower part of his box I started the grid with my trusted Excalibur. On the second grid line I got the beautiful low golden tone in my head phones. My sand scoop retrieved the missing prize. I took longer to put on my shoes than to find Chris’ Wedding band. On the way back to the truck Chris told me that He and Anja have been married for 25 years. Chis had not been wearing his wedding band for 16 years. Having recently lost some weight, he was once again able to wear it for the last few months. He was upset at the loss, and equally happy that we found the wedding band. It happened so fast that I was still able to make my promised dinner.

Chris and Anja, thank you for the hansom reward. All the best on your way back home to Atlanta.

 

Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring Found and Returned, Myrtle Beach SC.

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Last Saturday, I was on my way back to the house after spending 2 unsuccessful hours in the surf looking for a mans lost ring. I got a phone call from Oliver asking if I was the « Ring Finder Guy ». Oliver explained that a friend of his had lost her engagement ring the previous day. Oliver, looking to rent a metal detector, had been referred to me by Joe Denton, our local Minelab distributor. I told Oliver that I was already on the road with my gear and would meet him in 15 minutes at the beach parking lot.

Oliver graciously covered my parking expenses and we headed toward the beach. Upon arriving I met Claudia and Edwin. Walking out to the area that Claudia had lost her engagement ring, she explained how she had placed it in a shirt pocket the day before. She had picked up her shirt to put it back on as they were leaving and had forgotten about her ring in the pocket. We got to the spot, in the dry sand where they were sitting yesterday and pointed out the area. I pictured a 30′ square area and went to work with my grid search. On the 5th line I got a nice low tone in the phones. Like my previous ring return it came in so low that I really felt like I was getting ready to scoop up a piece of foil. I gently used my sand scoop to dig the target. Giving the scoop a little shake revealed Claudia’s Engagement ring. I walked over to where she and Edwin were standing and held out my sand scoop for her to reach in and retrieve the prized possession. The ring that Edwin had place on her finger 2 years ago on their wedding day. The smiles tell the rest of the story.

Oliver, Claudia and Edwin, thanks for trusting the TheRingFinders.com to find your lost ring. Traveling mercies back to Baltimore.
