    I found a gold wedding band near First Cathedral off Lanai (near Maui) this morning. There is an inscription inside the ring, with a date. Did you lose a ring while diving?

    Many folks get married at this site, who knows, maybe someone lost it while getting married there or just returned there to dump the ring after the divorce. Last month, while diving in Grand Cayman I found 2 rings.

    Definitely could be divorce situation but the engraving inside the ring tells me it’s not a recent wedding. I can’t believe you found two rings on one trip! Must be a lot more common than I thought for people to lose them.

    Well, I found one while diving, pretty much every day for 2 months/2-3 dives per day and found the other one while walking on the beach. Funny thing is that both of them fit me perfectly.

    Reminds me of a verse from the Cuban song The Moon's Earrings:

    Los aretes que le faltan a la luna,
    los tengo guardados...
    en el fondo del mar.

    The Moon's missing earrings,
    I have placed for safekeeping...
    at the bottom of the sea.

    Always good to see someone honest enough to try and search for the owner. Well done, sir!

    No way to find the owner on that one, been under the water for too long and is in a pretty bad shape now. It is gold but I am guessing must have been there for a very long time.
