    6 Carat yellow diamond ring and some pocket change!!!

    Hello Everyone,
    I took a trip down to the beach with the family last week and planned to do some beach hunting. I hit beach accesses and around some of the piers. I was hunting a beach in front of a hotel when i was approached by a crying women. She explained that she lost her wedding band and found it, but could not find the engagment ring. She ask if i mind helping her search for it, and i said no problem. Well, we didn't find it, and she asked if i found it, could i bring it by to her at the address that she handed me before she walked away. I started hunting a little ways away from that area and found 3 - 1965 quarters in one coin spill(Weird). On the way back home i decided to do some night hunting and look around where the baby stroller and toys were when i was talking to them. Well after finding a tube of Blistex and a destroyed beer can, you could probably guess by now, i got the most fantastic sound on the Excalibur2 - Platinum. When i pulled it out of the sand it was already about 4 inches down (HMM?). I wonder what could have caused that ring to go 4 inches down in that amount of time. Maybe the baby was having fun with it! I put the sand scoop on the shoulder and headed to the address before going home. It was only 2 houses down from the beach access. When i rang the door bell about 20 people holding wine glasses and beer were staring at me. After all i was wading in chest deep water, and had the excal in one hand and the scoop on my shoulder and a finds bag dangling from my side covered in sand and salt water. The wife opened the door and asked me to come in. I began to explain to her where i looked and where i found that hunk of diamond. I asked her to put out her hand and put it there for her to see. She said, OMG! you found it! Well after she hugged me for 2 minitues her husband came over and shook my hand. He thanked me and said that if i wouldn't have found the ring, he would have been paying on it for the next fifteen years without it even being on her finger. I said 15 years? The one i bought for my wife was nice and took a couple of years to pay off but 15, holy cow. He said the diamond is yellow and very rare. They had just come back from Vegas getting married and were here seeing the in-laws. I asked him if he wouldn't mind telling me what something like that runs and he said a little over $59,000. I about fell over on my Excal! I wanted to ask him why his wife was wearing that bad boy on the beach in the first place, but that wasn't my place to ask that, so i told them congrats on the marriage and went home to tell my story to my wife and son. I found a bunch of quarters, dimes, nickles, and lets not forget those blasted pennies. Oh, and also a fishing weight and earing. I was glad to return the ring to the couple because i would want the same for my wife if she lost hers! I love beach hunting whether i found a penny or a 6 carat diamond ring. I still have not broken the 1950's in coins, no rings yet, and no gold in hunting off and on for 4 years or so. One day my friends, one day!!! Never give up

    Good luck to you!

    BIG congrats to you However, I might be out of line by saying this, but, you returned a $60,000 ring & they didn't give you any type of reward?! Did they offer?? If not, they have to be the cheapest S.O.B's I've ever heard about in my life. I know you didn't return it for the reward, but, IMO it was the least the owners could have done...ESPECIALLY on a ring that cost more than a luxury car

    No, they didn't offer anything. I wasn't expecting anything either. Heck I knew it was nice when I found it and was looking at it on the way to their house, but when he told me what it was I was in complete shock. That is a lot of money for anyone these days.

    You did the right thing kid, but, trust me...you got gipped The woman came over to you hysterically crying to help her. You took time out of your schedule & performed manual labor to find her over-the-top, ostentatious ring & all the husband & wife offer is a thanks?! As he said, you saved him 15 years of payments!!! In the very LEAST, I would've palmed 5 crisp hundreds in your hand, but, maybe I live by a different set of rules

    5 crisp ones would have been nice.I am working three jobs right now to stay afloat so it would have helped. So many of us are in the same boat! I was also thinking what kind of message would I be sending my son if I were mad about not receiving anything in return. One day he might do the same thing and someone break him off something real nice. You never know. But for now he needs to know which way to go and that is the direction I want my son to head in.

    Leave it to the rich folks to be cheapskates. Oh well, I think the sign was 3 x '65's right up front for your reward!

    Im going to tell the truth....I would have been mad with no reward. I would have been thinking that if they could afford a ring like that, they could have slid a little change my way. I also think its great that you werent mad.

    Since you know what the address is, if you supply it to me I would like to drop those people a little note! I can not believe they didn't even offer you a drink! That douche bag deserves to pay for 15 years IMHO!

    Maybe your reward will be in the knowledge that that ring went down 4 inches that quickly, so ones lost 5 years ago will be deeeeep. Knowing you are able to find gold, platinum and jewels can't be a bad thing for the confidence, and might make you stick at it longer. Pl8man's posts show what the potential is too.
    Also, next time take a photo of the bling for us
    You found one for practice - go find a couple more for the money. Best of all possible luck to you, Nuggy

    congrats on finding and returning the ring. very honorable to say the least. I've said it before and I'll say it again, anyone who would wear something that valuable is a moron.

    Good for you for performing such a noble deed! Hopefully karma will take care of the reward situation, you did that couple a tremendous favor. They could have at least offered you a beer or something... Guess they blew all their money gambling and on their incredibly expensive wedding at Elvis's chapel of love.

    You performed a noble deed, but the husband could have at least offered you a beer. Something like this deserves a little more than a pat on the back. Buddy-man could afford to finance a $59,000 ring but couldn't even come off with a red nickel for a reward?
    LMAO
