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.

Diamond Ring Lost In Sand At Balmoral Beach

March 13th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

A few days back I received a call from Anthony, who’s wife Myer had managed to lose her engagement ring somewhere at Balmoral Beach. Myer removed the ring to apply suncream, and at some point the ring has fallen in the sand. A passer by noticed the distressed couple searching for the ring and found my website on his iPhone. An hour later I was down at Balmoral Beach about to search for Myer’s lost diamond engagement ring. The couple had been sitting in 2 locations throughout the day, and remembered the path that they walked which was a good thing. We started the search in the position they had spent most of the time sitting, and both Myer and Anthony had a feeling it was in this area. After Anthony circled off a search area in the sand, I began detecting and digging any and every signal. After digging a few old bottle caps, and a 5 cent coin I received a very faint crackly signal. I have learned not to ignore these signals anymore as thin gold engagement rings can do this. When digging up diamond rings in dry sand, I do not use a scoop encase it knocks out the diamond. So I pushed my pinpointing device into the sand until I was right above the signal. After pushing some sand away I knew right away I had found Myer’s engagement ring. It doesn’t matter how many times I recover a lost ring, the feeling you get when you see a beautiful diamond ring sparkling in your hand is a great feeling. And it feels even better when you return the ring to the owner and see the smile on their face. Anthony and Myer, it was a pleasure meeting you guys :)

Large Gold Ring Lost At Balmoral Beach

March 10th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

I am currently working on a job trying to find a large gold ring which was lost in about 2 meters of water at Balmoral Beach. The ring is incredibly sentimental to the owner. The area the ring was lost is in a spot where many people swim each morning. If by any chance a swimmer has picked up a LARGE gold ring, please get in contact with me ASAP. The owner is willing to pay a large reward for its return. In the search for the gold ring, I did manage to find a silver ring with a green rock. If you beleive you are the owner of this ring, please contact me.

I managed to go out for a treasure hunt on Friday, which is very rare these days since I started offering my services to the public. I went to my local beach, Balmoral. Besides finding the usual bottle caps, pulltabs and coins, I managed to find this beautiful men’s gold watch in the  sand. If you are the owner of this watch, and can prove you are the owner by either identifying the brand, or providing a photo/receipt of the watch…I would be very happy to return it to you.

Lost Mens Tribal Ring Found At Balmoral Beach

March 9th, 2009 by Brad Lovell

I am looking for the owner of a lost mens silver ring I found while metal detecting at Balmoral Beach near Mosman. The ring is very large, and heavy, and has what looks like a tribal pattern embossed on it. Please contact me if you believe you are the owner of this ring. If you are able to describe the inside engravings, where on Balmoral beach the ring was lost, or have a photo wearing this ring..I will be happy to return it. Sorry, but I need to be very careful when returning rings. I need to be 100% sure I am returning the ring to the correct owner. Unfortunately we live in a world where not everyone is totally honest.
