Hello, I think I have lost my engagement ring & wedding ring on Blackrock beach last Thursday. (Co. Louth) The search area is quite small as we just sat on a picnic blanket. We have been using a metal detector but we’ve had no joy...But we are by no means experts! We are renting a metal detector on a daily basis. We would really appreciate help from specialists who are use to looking for precious metals and we are willing to pay for their help. My rings are made of platinum & diamonds & are just beautiful. I’m reminded of them every time I wash my hands. I’m going crazy thinking about them! Additional reward offered if the rings are found. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I can’t believe it!!! I’m in total shock and in awe of the kindness we received via this forum. My husband, I & our families searched for my rings for 5 days before we reached out to the Irish metal detecting forum. We had hired a metal detector from a local hardware supplier but it was useless for finding rings as we had scanned the area where the rings were found several times. Jugins kindly offered his help & when I asked how early would suit him to meet this morning, he said 6am! So it meant my husband could meet him early and they could search together before my husband had to go to work. To our amazement the rings were pretty close to where we were sitting on beach. (I had taken them off to put sun cream on my baby & had forgotten to put them back on!!!.) Jugins went above and beyond a good deed and expressed a level of kindness that is rarely seen nowadays. He agreed to meet up promptly as I figured he knew how important/sentimental the rings were to me. Today was our last ditch attempt to find the rings before calling the insurance company but thankfully we didn’t need to! Jugins found both rings in less than 30 minutes and refused to take any money for his time and didn’t want any reward for finding the rings. He just about agreed to take some petrol money. My husband said we couldn’t have found a nicer man to help us. He is a true gentleman, what we would call “salt of the earth”. It’s rare in this day and age to find such a kind person.
We would like to thank Jugins from the bottom of our hearts - it has saved us a lot of time, money & heart ache. The rings could be replaced but we know insurance companies won’t cover the full replacement value of rings and they'd also hike the premiums for many years afterward but more importantly, it’s the sentimental value that’s attached to them. These are the rings my husband put on my finger on our special day.
Jugins, you are our hero today! Thank you so so so much!
PS - I have learnt my lesson (to never take my rings off unnecessarily)
