Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Found At Balmoral Beach

April 8th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

Last week I received a phone call from a gentleman by the name of Tim. Tim had been standing in waist deep water at Balmoral Beach while holding his baby, when his heavy platinum wedding ring fell off his finger and into the water. That afternoon I met Tim at low tide and began searching the area for his wedding band. Frustratingly, the ring was lost in a very trashy area, which meant I was receiving a signal almost every swing of the metal detector. With the amount of area that required searching, it could take days to dig every target. With only a couple of hours of day light left,  I decided to only investigate the stronger signals. After about 90 minutes of digging, I finally recovered a large heavy platinum ring. When Tim returned to the beach, I showed him the ring, praying it was the right one. Tim smiled and slid it straight onto his finger and said ‘thats the one!’. Tim it was great meeting you and I appreciate your honesty in regards to the reward. You we’re true to your word which is very appreciated.

Large Gold Ring Lost at the Copacabana Beach

April 8th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

Sadly on Australia day back in January, Liza lost her very large gold wedding ring after being dumped by a wave at the Copacabana Beach. Liza was visiting her son from South Africa at the time. Unfortunately when Liza’s son Bernard called me to search for the ring, my under water metal detector was in for repairs. Many months later, Liza contacted me via email to ask if I could search for the lost ring. Because so much time had passed by, and the ring was lost in the surf I mentioned to Liza there was very little chance of finding the ring. But as a way of getting closure, Liza asked me to search the area for the ring anyway. I drove up the central coast to the beautiful Copacabana Beach and met Liza’s son Bernard, who showed me the approximate area of where the ring was lost. Strangley enough, after 2 hours of searching the area at low tide, I did not receive one single target! This rarely ever happens…there is always at least a coin or bottle cap to dig up. If anyone has managed to find a “Large” gold ring at the Copacabana Beach, please contact me as this ring means a lot to Liza.
