Debra and Mark flew in from San Diego, California to visit their daughter at American University as she was settling in at her new school. The three of them went for a tour around the campus and during that time Debra lost her beautiful and most sentimental keepsake – her engagement ring. The piece of jewelry consisted of a platinum band with a hinge (for opening and closing the band over the knuckle of Debra’s ring finger) and a 2.75 carat cushion cut diamond secured within the lovely setting.
The family walked about 200 yards from the university school buildings down to a grassy area where the three of them sat and relaxed in a lovely serene environment. Then, they returned to the main campus drive and walked back up a steep hill in the direction of the educational buildings that they had originally came from.
As soon as the family reached the top of the hill, Debra realized that her irreplaceable diamond ring was missing from her finger. She had suspected that the hinge on the band must have opened up while she was brushing off some dirt from her pants when she stood up off of the grass down by the pretty field where they sat. Immediately, the group headed back to the grassy area to look for the lost jewel, but unfortunately all of their efforts led to no avail.
Sometime during that same day, Debra and Mark went on to the internet and searched for help and that’s when they found the elite international directory of metal detectorists called THE RING FINDERS. Soon after searching for a local metal detectorist, I was contacted by the couple.
I was so happy to come out to American University in Washington DC to assist Debra and Mark in their quest to find their lost sentimental keepsake. When I arrived, I contacted the couple and we arranged a place for us to meet. They would be coming from one of the educational buildings and would walk down the same hill where Debra realized that her precious jewel was no longer on her finger. I encouraged the couple to keep their eyes focused on the concrete just in case the hinge of the band opened up somewhere on their walk back up the hill after hanging out in the grassy area.
I am so excited to share that as I met up with Debra and Mark in the middle of the road, part way down the hill, there it was…the hinged band… right there in the middle of the concrete paved drive! As I studied it carefully, it was quite apparent that it had been run over by a vehicle at least once! I couldn’t believe what I was looking at! However, just when one would think that there was light at the end of the very dark tunnel for my clients, unfortunately that light turned out to be another oncoming train! Upon looking at the damaged platinum band, there was no diamond secured within its setting! It was gone! The immediate thought was that perhaps a tire tread picked up the 2.75 carat cushion shaped diamond and carried it away up the campus road! That very moment was extremely stressful for the couple in realizing that If that theory was accurate, they would never see their special jewel ever again!
Even in the midst of such a crisis, everyone leaned down towards the road and carefully searched for the diamond. Then, perhaps a minute later, Debra let out an overwhelming cheer and an extreme sigh of relief! She found the diamond, her precious and most beautiful piece of ice was lying on the concrete perhaps a foot or so away from where the band had been identified! All of us together could not believe the outcome of this unbelievable recovery! The couple thanked me over and over again for encouraging them to keep their eyes to the ground and for my assistance as we all rendezvoused at the spot where the jewelry was found!
For the next 45 minutes, there was such a spirit of elation that each one of us experienced right there on the American University campus! It was an indescribable time of celebration and excitement! In less than 24 hours, my clients would be leaving on a plane bound for their home in San Diego and Debra and Mark would be boarding with that beautiful « symbol of love » that represented that special moment in time when Mark popped the question…and Debra of course answered a resounding ‘yes’!
