I got a call from one of our high school's assistant football coaches asking if I would help find his wedding ring that he lost during a game. He wasn't sure exactly where he lost it and was concerned that it may have been ground into the mud on the field. He told me that during the game he had slapped the shoulder pads of a player just a few minutes before he realized his ring was gone. The tricky part with the locating the ring was it was made of tungsten and black in color. I did a search on the White's Forums and found that a tungsten ring should show a VDI of 55. I first searched the home side of the playing field with no luck then started on the sidelines. I was on my 3rd pass, just about as far north as I thought he would have been, when I got a solid VDI signal of 55. I moved the grass away after pinpointing and even then it was hard to see the black ring. The gentleman was extremely happy have his ring returned. A month later I got another call to help find a lost wedding band. He heard that I was the local guy to call to locate a lost ring. I was happy to oblige. I grabbed my DFX and headed to his farm. He lost it while cutting wood and didn't know if he lost it where they were cutting down trees or by the log splitter, a quarter mile away. Since we were already near the splitter, I started there. Within 10 minutes I found the ring, a white gold band. He was ecstatic! His wife was unhappy with him for losing his ring so this really made his day. I have found many rings with my White's DFX but finding and returning those wedding bands was very rewarding.
