This girl was elated to be reunited with her childhood ring that was lost 10 years ago! When she was 3 years old, her father gave her this gold ring. She tossed it over her shoulder and then retrieved it from the grass and then repeated the game like a little preschool girl would do. Eventually, she couldn't find it and her father started his own search but to no avail. Over the past 10 years the family would try and try again to find the lost ring, but it never could be found.
One early evening, I was metal detecting in Falls Church, Virginia and this girl's father approached me. He lived a block away. He asked if I could detect gold with my machine and I said, "yes". He asked if I could stop by his house to have me search for the ring. He shared the story of how it got lost and how his daughter was now 13 and a half years old! I showed up that night after work and began the search in their front yard. It took over an hour and a half to find due to their lack of remembrance of where the ring was tossed. But I found it and the smiles were awesome to behold!!! The girl that was a preschooler when she lost the ring was now reunited with her special keepsake as a teenager! They couldn't believe it was back in their lives! Her father said that he never bought her another ring in all these ten years after she lost that first gold ring he gave her. Wow! He said it was time to get her another one now that this one was found!
