One of the most asked questions asked when “Lost Jewelry Recovery” gets calls is: what do you do, and how can you help me?
Here’s the answer: Lost Jewelry Recovery is a “metal detecting service. It all came about years ago when my mother had lost her wedding ring somewhere in our back yard while attending to the kids or possibly hanging out the laundry on the cloths line. My mother looked for that ring not only for days but years on end and missed it dearly. The wedding ring was a one of a kind heirloom and it had a turquoise stone setting instead of your regular diamond,I used to go and search for that ring as a young teenager and only wished I had a metal detector to find it. Metal Detectors in 1970 were very expensive and complicated to use, I had only seen one in my early days and 30 years later I was able to purchase my first “Radio Shack” model from a garage sale.. I had already moved from the family home but my mother still lived there and of course the first thing I did was go there and search for that lost wedding ring.It took about 2 hours of searching the back, but after digging up several beer caps and nails I got a signal right along the sidewalk and as I removed the dirt I could see that turquoise colour and I almost peed my pants with excitement. Having found the ring that I knew was going to light up my elderly mothers face for eternity was such a blessing I could hardly wait to present it back to her. I calmed myself down enough to walk in the house and show my mother what I had just found and the look on her face was priceless, I instantly became her hero! She took that ring to heaven with her and I’m sure it’s still on her finger.
Lets fast forward to present day: With the metal detectors available today a wedding ring lost in a sport field is just a game of “hide & seek” If the ring was lost where you say it was, then it’s just a matter of doing a trough search of the area and knowing how to use your equipment to it’s fullest capacity to find the ring you are searching for.
I have done many searches on land & in water and found the “lost jewelry” within minutes because the client knew the approximate whereabouts of the item, but some searches can last for days if you are searching a huge field or beach area and the client isn’t sure where the item became lost. The idea of knowing how to conduct a recovery search is something that has to be thought out and planned before the search starts. Making sure you know all the details leading up to “when the item became lost”, “where the item was lost, and if you can search there, as well as what equipment is best for the search.You can then reveal to the client what “you will be doing for them” to recover their lost item and include a fee for your service “if the item is recovered” and a fee if the “item is not recovered“
Lost Jewelry Recovery service has done many searches to date and we have found thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and gained many pleased clients that you can see on our “Testimonial” page of our website at: http://www.lostjewelryrecovery.com
