I received a call from a woman in Long beach Island,New Jersey today that needed help to find her 2 wedding/engagement rings that were possibly lost on the beach the day before. Although I had other plans for today I could tell the urgency as she was crying on the phone so I responded to her that I was on my way! Upon arriving at the site with my White's BHID 300 on the beach where she was laying out with the kids yesterday and set up at again we went through what may have happened to the rings if in fact they were there at all as she was not positive. With everyone on the beach now watching what I was doing I asked her to move all of her items in the area and began my grid process with my White's BHID 300. With only 3 passes into the 20x20 area I heard the mid tone I was hoping for and scooped up the first ring which was a beautiful 2 carat diamond platinum wedding band. The look on Mary's face was priceless when I told her I found one and gave her the ring. With that I proceeded 3 steps forward and heard another mid tone and recovered ring #2 which was a stunning 3 carat diamond engagement ring also set in platinum with diamonds all the way around the band!!! She immediately started crying and hugging me on the beach and everyone who was watching on the beach was clapping and cheering! What an awesome feeling it was to see her smiling again on her vacation,I love it! I got gotta say it was something to see those 2 beautiful pieces of jewelry come up in my scoop!!! Although i have made some incredible lost jewelry recoveries this is the most expensive as she informed me of the rings combined value of $25-30,000.00!!! and they were not insured! Needless to say I was given a very generous reward and suggested she have them insured asap! You can see the happiness on her face standing next to me in the picture. Here is a prime example of the abilities of the professional metal detectors that White's Electronics manufactures. I have been using White's metal detectors for over 30 years and brought a lot of beautiful treasures and smiles back into the world. How do I spell success "WHITE'S"
