Pauline called us extremely distraught because she had lost her wedding, engagement and eternity rings somewhere in the garden. They had all been joined together and so the loss was even more painful. She and her husband had searched everywhere, even using a torch at night to try and see any glint or sparkle, sadly with no success.
We came out to try and reunite her with the priceless items. Rings that are known to be lost in the garden generally have the highest success rate of being found. This was three times as important and we would do all we could to help.
Pauline filled us in on her movements and we got underway, starting at the most likely spots. Within a matter of seconds, I heard my father get a very strong signal from his detector. Then he simply asked Pauline "Does it look something like this?". I managed to quickly run around a tree to capture the beautiful moment the three rings were returned to a very, very jubilant and tear-filled Pauline.
She was beside herself and could not thank us enough, saying it had recently been a tough time for her and her husband, that they had been through a lot over the years and that the ring had so much meaning to her because of the past.
She offered us a beer (which we politely declined as it was still only 10am) and said she was definitely going to have one. She also said her gardening days were over! We all laughed, a very happy ending and another great feeling all around. Great effort from my father Geoff for finding it so quickly, I should definitely take him along more often!
We also received a lovely thank you card from her a few days later, which is now on a shelf in the Lost Treasures Shop. Watch the video below to see her reaction when her rings are returned:
