Red face lost jewelry in shag carpet

A 10kt gold, diamond stud fell into shag carpeting. I want to rent a detector or locate a hobbyist in Fort Worth to search the carpet. Which type if detector is suggested for rental? Any ideas appreciated.

I would suggest using a garrett Pro-Pointer.
It's a small handheld pin-pointer type of detector.
We have many members in yor area, I'm sure someone could help you.

Same here, a Pro-Pointer should help. Also a big welcome from New Jersey... HH Andy

If you do end up using a detector, make sure you turn off tv's etc. or it will interfere with the coil. HH

It would be hard to lower the sensitivity enough to search a carpet in the house and still pick up a small target like that. The detector will pick up on the rebar in the foundation. The others are right, use a pinpointer.

That actually isn't a bad idea. A piece of cheese cloth across the hose to trap it.
