LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN LBI NJ FOUND BY: MATT ST.GERMAIN
A few days ago I was referred to Stephen and his wife Elizabeth by fellow ring finder Dave Milsted for her lost engagement ring. They are here for the week and while they were at the beach with their children, Elizabeth was standing on the slope in the wet sand speaking with a friend. she went to remove her rings to let her friend get a better look at them and as she did, A larger than normal wave came up and caught them off guard. She managed to save her wedding band but her engagement ring went flying. I met Stephen there later that day and he showed me where it happened. I began to search but I could only safely go half way done the slope due to high and very rough surf conditions. I promised him I would come back in a day or two when the surf calmed down in order to continue the search. I went back this afternoon without making them aware but they actually arrived there to hang out when I was halfway done. I wasn’t having any luck and decided to come back that night when everyone left so I could go over more areas. At that very moment my machine gave me the kind of signal I was hoping for. After I removed a few scoops of sand I had her ring! It was buried about 8″ down already. Stephen looked over at me and said no luck? I smiled and held up the ring, He started to walk over and as he got closer he realized I found the ring. He yelled at the top of his lungs. ” I can’t frickin’ believe you found it !! ” Then Elizabeth saw what was happening and quickly came over. They were completely shocked that I managed to find it. They were ecstatic and very happy! I am so happy I was able to do that for them! Another happy ending!
