Knowledge of the Atlantis ring came to me around the year
l990, when I was learning for gold smith at the French master goldsmith M. Robbe.
Some French people knew about the ring and a model came in my hands, of which I
made a casting for my self.
I have had it ever since. In the last ten years, I have made
quite a few of them always with the guarantee to the buyers: no good, money back.
No good Money back
came back. One from a Yugoslavian lady who said she was a sorceress and did not
feel any power from it, and needed the money for something else. The second from
Ronny, a fisherman on the boat Pioneer. He had it hanging on a nail in the
cockpit because he did not believe in it, fishing was bad and if I please could
take it back so he could buy bait. The trip he took later landed him in a jail
in Antigua as he was in forbidden waters, his fishing gear got confiscated and
he had to pay a heavy fine to get his boat back.
Experiences with the Atlantis Ring
The other rings seem to have
worked, as nobody ever complained. Then I got three stories from people who lost
theirs and found it back. I always engrave the name of the customer inside the
First case was big Jack from the Surf Club South in Grand Case Saint
Martin. He took of his ring to show it to friends at the open bar of Cha Cha Cha
restaurant. It fell into the gravel on the floor and could not be found anymore.
He asked me to make another. Some time later, two month almost, his ring was
found back, 50 yards from where it was lost. The second ring I made him, he gave
to his mother.
Second case was Thierry, from whom I bought my first motorbike. A
year after I sold him his Atlantis ring, I saw him, leg in a cast, on crutches.
He told me he had lost his ring two days before he had an accident that broke
his leg, and if he could have another ring made right away. He had lost my phone
number, and was happy he ran into me. Month later I saw him walking normally,
cured 100 percent and he told me that some time before, he took a young lady
hitchhiking and saw an Atlantis ring on her finger. Asking if she knew me, she
told him that her boyfriend had given her the ring around the time that he had
lost his. Asked if there was engraved Thierry inside the ring she admitted it
and gave him back his ring.
Third case was John Smith (I am not kidding) from
the sailing boat: the Mermaid of Cariacou. He was in love with a Norwegian girl
and bought a ring for her, it was so small that he wore it halfway his pinky
when he boarded a flight to Europe, to bring it to his lover. He made a stopover in Holland and after
returning from a trip on a pushbike in the countryside he found the ring
missing. Two days later, when he was about to continue his trip to Norway, a
friend came in the house that had taken a rest under a tree on the way where he
found Johns ring back.
If you have an Atlantis ring and you have some remarkable
happening to report, please write or e-mail us. Like the lady who was reluctant
to buy the Atlantis ring but called me the day after she got hers to tell me
that in the casino that night she got 50 dollars chips at the cashier when she
had given a 20 note to change. She took that for a sign that the ring worked. I
cannot say that it is so, but I cannot deny it either.
