Not all stories have a happy ending, especially if they carry a harsh memory with them. Steve Andrews is disappointed when he expects a dream to come to an end after finding a strange object that was apparently missing.
The man was a metal detector and in one of his expeditions he found a metal detector Engagement Ring Among the waves, he decided to look for his owner to give it to him, without imagining that they would give him an answer that stunned him.
It all happened on the island of Jersey earlier this year. The man was excited to be able to sparkle someone’s life by finding a precious item, so he posted a photo of the ring to the Jersey Lost Ring Metal Detecting group on Facebook with the goal of spreading it widely and thus being able to locate the ring. Her.
“The wedding ring is far away in St Aubinz’s Bay. It was flagged in 1989, so it’s probably been around for 33 years. I know Long Distance” read the description of his message, while also showing a picture of the sign of alliance, which was a traditional gold ribbon.

Andrews waited several months for an answer, while users of the social network endlessly shared the story, also hoping that the mystery of love would find the missing piece. In September, a woman apparently called Steve, the owner of the ring, and asked him to return it to sea because she “didn’t want to see him again.”

A happier story about a metal detector

The grooms told the concierge at the hotel what had happened and he immediately called a metal detector: “Richard gave me a very good indication of where his wedding ring was and as soon as I started looking for it, I located it in no more than ten minutes,” Andrews closed.
