    Found and Returned ~ MONSTER GOLD RING W/ DIAMONDS!!!

    On Friday I received a phone call from a lady that got my contact info from the local White's Metal Detectors dealer. She lost her custom made wedding ring and was just so upset with the thought that it was lost and gone forever.

    So, today Ron & I took a drive out to her place to see if we could locate the ring for her. She explained that she had it on while doing yard work the week before, but she wasn't sure how long it's been gone nor where she lost it.

    Driving up to her place I knew we had our work cut out for us ~ I bet there's about three or four acres of lush grass around her big beautiful house!! Ron & I detected for about 2 or three hours with no luck. We were starting to think that she didn't lose it in the lawn area. We decided to hunt the very last piece of grass on her property ~ a small grassy area just inside the front gate . . . . after just a couple minutes I got a signal . . . . I looked down and there it was!! The biggest ring I've ever seen in my life!! IT WAS A MONSTER RING!!! I had no idea that it was going to be THAT big!!!! I don't know the weight or karats of the diamonds, but I bet it weighs 20 or 25 grams!!

    She was so excited! So were Ron & I! It was such a rush! Then she says, "I've got something for you" and she goes into her house and comes out with $400 in cash and hands it to me! I refused it ~ but I said if she really wants me to take something then I'll accept $100 to donate to our local Metal Detecting club (cdclc.org). She was agreable to that!

    So after several "THANK YOU"s and a few hugs Ron & I went on our way. We went and had lunch and went detecting a park in Eugene Oregon. At the park Ron ended up finding a 14K Gold Wedding band that weighs 8.3 grams!!! LUCKY!!!

    I would love to have seen the look on
    your face when you saw that honker staring
    up at you. Now THAT would have been a sight.
    Great story.

    Re: Found and Returned ~ MONSTER GOLD RING W/ DIAMONDS!!!

    You know I've been on T-net here for about six or seven months and I've read all kinds of stories about returning lost items.. hell I even posted one myself about finding a cell phone and returning it to it's errant owner... yet in all this time I've never heard about or even thought about giving my contact information to a metal detector dealer. That's brilliant! <smacking self in forehead> what' a V-8 moment! Come to think of it, the very day I bought my White's detector from the local hobby shop, the dealer was telling me how they would get people in all the time to "borrow" a detector or that would purchase one and bring it back the same day or a couple of days later.. having found whatever it was they were looking for. Looking back that should have set off the wheels in motion even then.. but I guess I was just too excited about getting the detector in the first place and not thinking "out of the box" or "down the road" at the time. What a great idea.. Leaving your contact information with the dealer for those very people who need a lost item recovered. Not only would you meet new contacts, but you would win the blessing and admiration (if you found their item I suppose..) of potential links to OTHER contacts and places to hunt. BRILLIANT! And it gives me an opportunity to use some of these "business" cards that my wife made up for me .. sort of a calling card with contact information on it. Perfect!. Thanks my man for the epiphany.

    Really nice job!!! Making someone's day like that is priceless - and to top it off, what a great gesture to donate the "reward" money to your club!

    It's great to see another "good guy" in this hobby
