We do ask for a $50 Call Out Fee (underwater is more) to cover fuel expenses & Dr. Pepper cost, but do not let that stop you from calling us.

Parks, Yards, Flower Beds, and we can do underwater up to 25 feet in depth. We are NAUI certified divers and do a lot of underwater detecting with specialized equipment.

Search Locations

We live in the North Dallas area, anywhere within 100 miles or reasonable driving distance is normally OK with us.

Don Wilson's Bio

My wife & I have been metal detecting for just over 10 years. Our interest in metal detecting began after I lost my gold nugget bracelet while playing frisbee standing knee deep in the ocean in the Cayman Islands. I was devastated, my wife had given me that bracelet 25 years earlier and I had worn it every day since. Earlier in the day while in the Cayman Islands we had seen a couple walking the beach with metal detectors and commented that it looked like fun, never expecting to need one that very day.

After realizing that my gold nugget bracelet was gone, we raced down the beach to find the couple with the detectors. They were so nice and agreed immediately to come and search for my bracelet; they had one regular detector and one underwater detector. We searched for several hours but unfortunately did NOT find my bracelet. The couple were such great people, they showed us how to use their detectors and my wife and I each took turns just playing around with the equipment. You know just trying it out. My wife got a hit/beep while detecting on the beach and became so excited, we dug and dug in the sand and found a coin about the size of a 1/2 dollar. It was very corroded and hard to make out what is it was. We scrubbed and scrubbed and tried to clean the coin with everyone around us trying to help. They were very excited for us. Long story short, what we thought was our treasure found turned out to be a 20+ Anniversary Sears Commemorative Coin worth about $7.50. It was not a treasure but from that day forward we have been hooked on metal detecting.

I will never forget how I felt, telling my wife that I had lost my gold nugget bracelet, that deep gut feeling when you know its gone. That's why we decided to become part of "The Ring Finders" team. If we can find someone's special item and return it to them, then it will be all worth it.

We have detected all over Texas, Louisana, Cancun, Cayman Islands, & Dominican Republic. We have had some decent success (over 100 successful recoveries) in finding rings, old coins, trinkets and treasures. We travel extensively and our time is our own, please give us a call, maybe we can help.

Don Wilson - Testimonials

  • Thank you so much, Don & Ellen! (2020)

    I am so impressed with their professionalism. I called on a Monday and left a message wherein Don returned the call within 5 minutes. I explained we lost a custom made knife that was a 40th wedding anniversary gift off our Lakehouse dock. We arranged to meet that Friday but he called on Tuesday saying could actually come on Thursday. On Wednesday, Don inquired about knife specifications, water depth and said he was actually at the dock and wanted to try using a magnet before diving. The magnet was not successful so the next am, I met them at the dock! He dived about 13 feet and came up with the knife after about 10 minutes. They are so friendly, punctual, prepared and overall professional.

    We are extremely happy to get the knife back especially since learned the knife maker no longer doing custom knives so could not have another made. Thank you so much, Don & Ellen! We will definitely refer and use Dallas Ring Finders again!
