Last week a young couple strolling along the China beach in San Francisco was almost knocked over by a rogue wave, when the young woman regained her balance, she quickly realized the wave had knocked off her engagement ring into the ocean! while she frantically searched the sand to no avail, the ring, a family heirloom, had seemingly vanished.

The young woman called Ring finders, a service that helps connect people to seasoned detectorists around the world, Marshal Smith got the call and was at the beach at 9 am the next day to meet up and begin the hunt for the lost ring.

The initial chances of recovery after 24 hours seemed slim but shortly into the hunt, Smith got a strong signal and was able to find the missing ring! Obviously, this young lady was over the moon and this tale had a very happy ending. We are starting to hear about stories much like this one more often.
