Search Types

Parks, Beaches, Fields, Swimming Pools, Golf Courses, Lakes, Yards and any Public or Private property where the lost item is to be searched for. I also have an underwater metal detector and can search up to 5 feet of water. If you lost your ring in the snow call me ASAP.

Most of Maryland, Northern Virginia and all of DC ... Contact me if you are outside my area to discuss travel. I will go anywhere to help you find your lost ring

Brian Rudolph's Bio

I have 10 years of experience with metal detecting, and in the beginning of 2018, I started recovering lost rings, jewelry, keys and smartphones for people who have a need for my services. Country clubs, swimming pools, churches, synogogues, park services and beach patrols have referred people to me who have been in need of finding lost items which they desire to recover. These people are just like you. They lost their wedding ring, a sentimental heirloom, a pendant that was given as a gift from a loved one, or maybe just a piece of jewelry that one bought as a special keepsake.

And it's brought me such pleasure and fulfillment in helping countless people over the past year find what has been lost!

You will find me to be very persistent in my efforts to recover your lost property and I rarely come up empty-handed. It's worth everything to me to see a smile placed back on the faces of those who at one point sunk into sorrow and despair when realizing they had lost something of great value to them and thought that they would never see it again.

I will do everything possible to get back what has been lost! You have my word and heart on that!

  • "I have nothing but great things to say about our ring finder, Brian! (2020)

    Item

    "I have nothing but great things to say about our ring finder, Brian! I emailed him while practically in tears at work a few days after I had lost my beloved engagement ring. He promptly responded and we spoke on the phone on my way home from work. He was so energetic and confident that he would find my ring despite the fact that we had already had 2 other people (in addition to my husband) metal detect our property and had multiple family members on their hands and knees sifting through leaves and dirt to find my ring. To be honest, I didn't think Brian would find it but I wanted someone with more experience with searching for engagement rings to give it a try before I completely lost hope. I wasn't eating or sleeping and I was in tears every day over losing my ring. Brian assured me that he wouldn't leave until the ring was found and to my surprise he found it after 12 hours of searching! It is apparent that Brian is passionate and determined in finding lost rings for people. Because of his determination, skills and optimism I get to continue to wear the gorgeous ring that my fiancé proposed to me at the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany! Thank you Brian, you're truly a good person for devoting your time and energy to finding rings for others!"

    “So grateful to Brian for being such a good sport. He drove all the way out to Ocean City in the pouring rain and had nothing but a positive attitude the whole time. He found my ring in no time at all, took a couple photos, had a quick chat and was on his way. A (hopefully) once in a lifetime experience with an amazing guy. Thanks again Brian! It means the world to me!”

    Brian took time off time from his vacation to help me find my wife's wedding ring that I had dropped on the way back from the pool. I was carrying it to our apartment so that it wouldn’t get lost at the pool and I still lost it on my walk back to the apartment. We found The Ring Finders online. He called me back within minutes of emailing him with my situation and he said that he could come out the next morning and help me. He did exactly that and found my ring in under 10 minutes. We had 4 people looking for it in the same places but couldn't find it! With Brian's metal detector and expertise it was found! It means so much to both of us that Brian was able to retrieve our original wedding ring. The experience was fun, easy, and efficient. Thank you, Brian! You're the best! It's hard to believe that there is such a nice, honest, kind, self-less person in the world that was able to help me with this problem.

  • If you ever need someone to find a lost item, Brian is your guy... (2019)

    Item

    I contacted Brian to help me find my platinum wedding band that I lost in about 2 feet of water at a private beach in Anne Arundel County. I came upon Brian after googling tips for finding a lost wedding ring at the beach. Brian was very enthusiastic, courteous, kind, and his optimism about the situation was contagious. Even after not having success the first day he looked for it, he was still very positive, determined, and certain that he could find it. Brian went out of his way to help me by squeezing in a second search on his way to his vacation! The man loves what he does! He found the ring on the second search before I could even get to the beach to see how it was going, and I only live 5 minutes away! If you ever need someone to find a lost item, Brian is your guy. Super nice, friendly, optimistic, honest, and talented. People say I was lucky to find the ring. I tell them it was not luck, it was Brian’s skill and attitude. Lastly, based on my interaction with Brian, he’s not in this for the money. He’s truly looking to help people find their invaluable items and gets a huge thrill from helping them. Thank you, Brian!

  • I hope you are treated as well as you treat others.” (2019)

    "Brian..You didn't restore the ring, but you did restore our faith in humanity. I know that sounds silly, but your kindness gives me hope that there are genuine, kind, honest people in the world who would help me if I were in trouble. You came to my home and gave me something without expecting something back- I've never experienced that before. You deserve more than money. I hope you are treated as well as you treat others.”

  • We cannot thank Brian enough for finding my engagement ring (2019)

    Item

    I feel terrible that it has taken me this long to leave a review for Brian. I am Meg (the girl who lost her ring) and we cannot thank Brian enough. After multiple days in the terribly cold, snowy weather, Brian found my ring when I did not think it was possible. He never gave up, even when I had. He was not only amazing at his job, but he was seriously one of the nicest men I have ever met. We cannot thank Brian enough for finding my engagement ring and making my finger feel complete again! I cannot recommend him enough!!
