    Platinum Engagement Ring returned

    A friend of mine was contacted by a gentleman in south Jersey about his wife's Platinum engagement ring that she had lost. They were pretty certain that the ring was in their yard somewhere. He agreed to see if he could get some help and go there and try to find it for them. He asked if anyone was interested in helping and I said I would love to help. So we arranged to meet at their house and see what we could do. When we got there they were very hopeful that we could find the ring as it meant allot to both of them besides just the value. They had the wedding ring which was also platinum so that was helpful to see what it would read as. It came up pulltab/nickle on my XLT. the 3rd target was the ring that was missing. I jumped up and yelled "BINGO". I gave the ring to her husband so he could give it back to her. As I went to put my detector away, I heard happy yelling comming from the side of the house. The look on her face was priceless and I got a few pictures to show. I can't tell you how happy I was just to be able to give it back. They offered a reward but we declined.

    WTG Ken, the happiness on her face kind of shows, HUH! It sure is a good feeling finding one's lost treasure to be rewarded with the happiness doing so brings.............

    Just goes to show, you got to dig pulltab readings on the beach.

    I recently found a diamond ring that belonged to my friends niece. It was lost about three years ago around his pool. I used my DFX and the ring was found in 5 minutes.
    I did not even get a thank you from her. But the experience of finding the ring knowing it was lost for so long and finding it within 5 minutes was enough for me.

    I am glad that you got a response...she seemed to be very excited.
    I may be young, but i'm still old enough to be in the way!

    It sure gives you a good feeling to return a ring to someone and see the look on their face. I have never accepted a reward either. Way to go!!!
