Completely discouraged, I dropped to my knees and combed through the soggy clumps of freshly cut grass (2017)
"My wife of six months and I left for my brother’s house, and a family barbecue, when we realized I had forgotten to put my wedding band on after showering. We ended up turning back for the ring. Fast-forward to several hours later, after the friend chicken and potato salad had been consumed, after my brother proposed to his girlfriend in front of our family and friends (she said yes), after the first brief thunderstorm, and before the second,
I went into the fenced yard to supervise a water balloon fight with the kids. I hadn’t planned on getting wet, but my nephews attacked me and I ended up getting into the action. When we were all back on the patio, drying off as thunder boomed in the distance, I looked down and realized my ring was missing.
Despite the downpour, the crew rushed back into the grass. A family member had videotaped the balloon fight, so my wife and a few others turned detective and looked through slide by slide trying to detect when the ring had come off. They managed to learn that I still had it on after getting hit by the balloons, but two minutes later, when I was up by the fence line, it wasn’t on my finger.
Completely discouraged, I dropped to my knees and combed through the soggy clumps of freshly cut grass and raked my nails over dirt and god knows what else (they have a dog and we’d brought our puppy for the day).After an hour of searching, our shivering and drenched crew called it a night. It was getting dark and we were out of optimism.
I drove the thirty minutes home, furious. By the time I got inside and changed, I hugged my wife and cried. That ring was the ring she gave me when we promised to love each other for all eternity. It was the single most precious item I owned, and it was gone.
My wife immediately got to work. She researched ways to find rings in grass, or outside, and a number of other things when she found this website and zeroed in on Jon. Feeling guilty, she’d admit to me later, she dialed his number not caring that it was 10pm, or a holiday weekend. After they connected, Jon agreed—much to our delight—to come out the next day, on Memorial Day.
We met with Jon back at my soon to be sister-in-laws and explained where we believed to have lost the ring. He spent thirty minutes going over the area, but didn’t turn up the ring. Figuring it must have come off during the action and traveled a ways, he went to look on the other side of the fence and found the ring within ten minutes.
We really enjoyed hearing his stories afterward and getting to know him. This is his passion, and it’s an honorable one. The fact that he was willing, even eager, to take our late-night call and come out on a holiday speaks to his integrity. We kindly hope we never have a need for his service again, but if we do, we know we’re in good hands."
You did a very thorough search and we were rewarded with success. (2017)
You did a great job today! I was very stressed after having lost this ring, and clearly was in the dog house at home. I deserved it (I guess).
I appreciate your availability and willingness to come to my home on relatively short notice. Watching your search process was very interesting, and it was clear that you have strong discipline in your process. You did a very thorough search and we were rewarded with success.
Great job, and thanks so much for helping me find the way out of the “dog house” after a week. I enjoyed talking with you afterward, and hope you continue to have great success in your future.
Jonathan. You’re the man! (2016)
Jonathan. You’re the man!
I’m the one who called to see if you’d be willing to come out. You went above and beyond driving out to assist us with the lost keys.
THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU
I cannot begin to thank Jon as well as let all of you know this is a real service and it is definitely a life saver (2016)
Thank you Jon for finding my sentimental silver ring in the snow!
I lost my ring, it flew off my hand and landed somewhere in a patch of snow. I googled ring finder Detroit and to my surprise Jon’s name came up.
I thought why not call and see if he could help because the only way I’m going to find my ring in a couple feet of snow will be with a metal detector. He responded within 15 minutes.
Very nice man, came over to where I was staying within the hour. Still didn’t know what to expect but was hoping for the best. Jon came and by the time I came back from my errand he found my ring that I had been searching all morning for.
It was a very special ring to me and this incredible gentleman helped me reclaim a ring that belonged to my mother and when she passed I put it on.
I cannot begin to thank Jon as well as let all of you know this is a real service and it is definitely a life saver if you are trying to find an item you really do not want to part with.
I paid what I thought was appropriate and he concurred. Definitely grateful that he came so fast and was able to help me find something that continues to stay on my hand. Thanks again! He’s really great at what he does!!!
