Hi White's,

On November 24 my sister-in-law called and asked me if I could come look for a ring which had been lost by a Lady's daughter. I said I would be glad to try. It was a family heirloom from the ladies grandmother. I went to the mobile home park and met them at the park area where the ring had been lost. The woman said her daughter was brushing some hair off her pant legs and the ring flew off into the grassy area.

Several people had looked for it including one fellow that had a White's 5000 detector, but no one had any luck. I brought my Spectrum XLT and started searching. After about 15 minutes I got that sweet sound in my phones. Using my Bullseye I retrieved the ring easily.

As you can see in the photos the lady was very happy as it had great sentimental value to her. I would guess about a 3/4 - 1 caret ruby with two 1/4 caret diamonds mounted on a gold setting. Being able to find it and return it to her was a very satisfying experience. Thank you White's for making a great detector.
