Man Finds 3 Missing Rings at a Beach with His Metal Detector

A man recently used his metal detecting hobby for a good cause. He managed to track down three missing rings that held special sentimental value. The owners of the ring called the detectorist a "superhero." 

Matt Goldsmith didn't hesitate to help when he saw two posts on Facebook asking for some assistance. The mission was to locate three missing rings, and he was the perfect man for the job. 

Armed with his metal detector, Goldsmith managed to track down all of the jewelry in less than an hour. Glen Darrell was one of the people who longed to find his rings. He lost his precious belongings down at Goring Gap Beach in the UK.

HELP NEEDED 

One of the rings was a wedding band with a diamond, and the other was a custom-made Celtic band that paid tribute to Darrell's maternal heritage. Robin Hallett was the other individual who needed help locating a ring.

His piece of jewelry went missing in Maui down West Parade, near a sand park. The item had extra special meaning because it was made for his late mother. Before she passed away in 2020 due to Covid, she always kept the ring with her.

THE HOBBY

Now, this ring was a treasured keepsake that Hallett longed to find. Both men were lucky Goldsmith stumbled upon their requests for help. The 32-year-old that lives in Tarring initially took up the hobby because he saw videos about it online.

Hallett was moved to tears when he heard that someone found the ring that belonged to his late mom.

He was always stunned by the interesting items people found thanks to their metal detectors. He decided to purchase one, and eventually, he joined the Sussex metal detecting club. Goldsmith regularly shares the unique coins and gems he finds online. 

LOCATED IN MINUTES 

Goldsmith shared that he was "chuffed" to have found the rings, especially because of their sentimental value. He managed to track the first two rings in under 20 minutes. The third ring was located within only 15 minutes! 

Speaking about the experience, Goldsmith said

“Needless to say, both were over the moon and brought to tears of joy as obviously they thought they were never to be seen again."

OVERJOYED WHEN THE RING WAS FOUND 

Through his metal detecting hobby, Goldsmith was able to help strangers, and he successfully reunited them with their possessions. Hallett was moved to tears when he heard that someone found the ring that belonged to his late mom.

He said: “My eyes filled up – I had this huge wave of emotion – he’s a superhero." At first, Hallett wasn't certain the ring would be found, but when they were, he "was over the moon."

OTHER TREASURES 

Finding lost treasure is not something that happens every day. But this month, a man surprised his wife when he found their missing wedding video in a box at Life Bible Church in Harrisburg, Oregon.

Drew and Kayla Gottfrie's 14th wedding anniversary was extra special because of this discovery. A friend of theirs was going through old church tapes when they found it. Gottfrie rented out a cinema to show his wife their long-lost wedding video!
