Cost For My Service

I have a call out fee of $25 for most local areas if the ring is not found, this covers my travel expenses. We can discuss further when you call and I will travel as far as I need to help some find their precious item. I work on a reward basis so you pay what you can and what its worth to you to find your lost treasure

Search Types

All types; Land, Water, Beaches, Parks, Yards, in snow and rain. I also have an underwater metal detector which I can use to wade into about 5-7 feet. In the case of private property we'll need to ensure you have permission which allows us onto the property to conduct metal detecting.

Loudoun County Virginia; Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling and most of Maryland, Northern Virginia. If your need is great I will travel further out and we can discuss travel expenses on the phone.

Raymond Jones's Bio

I am a Navy Veteran and have lived in the Virginia area for more than 25 years. I have a passion for treasure hunting both on land and as a new scuba diver I also dabble a little in this area. One of the things I always look to do when I find an artifact is to see if I can find its home. I've yet to find anything to return and I hope to be able to give back by being a part of the RingFinders.com community.

I have been metal detecting for around 20 years and have covered many of our local beaches, parks, and while in the military I had the pleasure of being able to have access to search on the older residential bases in which I located a history of artifacts from silver coins, antique toys, military buttons and animal tags from the 1940s.

Let me help you find your treasures.

I'm just a phone call away.

  • Ray was truly a godsend and a blessing for myself and my wife... (2021)

    Item

    Ray was truly a godsend and a blessing for myself and my wife. He returned my phone call and we immediately set up a plan and he showed up at the time given to me. Being over two hours away he still made the time to come and help us. Not only he being polite and cordial, he was also a great person to converse with during the search. I had looked myself for several hours for a few evenings and I was beyond stressed. He came in a with an approach and executed. After about an hour I stepped indoors to speak with my wife and I returned outside to seeing him holding it in his hand and goodness not only a stress relief. But a beautiful sight to behold. Especially with us getting married in less than a week! If you guys ever need something of this magnitude to be taken care of. Ray is your guy to call and I would recommend him everyday and twice on Sunday’s!!!! Thank you once again for being there for us and you rock man!

  • You are forever my angel on earth God bless you (2021)

    Item

    This was truly the most beautiful and emotional experience I have ever had. I felt helpless and sick to my stomach when I initially came to the realization I may never see my beautiful ring again. The guilt was immeasurable.

    Even though ray had told me about all the great experiences he had finding others precious jewels, I still felt like I would never be whole again. The morning I got the message, I didn’t even think that he had found my ring. I had figured he was just letting me know that he was going down to the spot to look again.

    I was driving. I opened up the message and there was a picture of MY RING. My heart sank and I instantly had the most bizarre panic/anxiety attack since the passing of my husband. I know in my heart, my husband, my angel sent ray to me.

    Xavier appeared in my dreams the night before. I had hope, and sure enough, my dreams came true. Thank you soooo much for everything and every second you put into this great recovery. You are forever my angel on earth ?? God bless you

    Treasure Hunter and Ring Finder Ray Pulls Off Late Inning Victory!

    A wedding band that has been on my finger for over 21 years, except for Friday night, as it was somewhere in my yard.

    Rays no quit attitude and commitment after a first pass, a second grid search, raking leaves for visual checks, and after @40 minutes, I heard Ray call my name, on his hands and knees, in the thick of some shrubs along the fence-line – holding my ring!

    Please call Ray: He was at my house within 90 minutes from the time I first texted him! And am glad I opted against buying a metal detector for 2 reasons: 1) a second set of professional eyes with the right know-how and tools pays off; 2) this is a story to share, working with real-life treasure hunters – that’s priceless!

    Thanks again Ray

  • I would recommend Raymond to anyone who has lost a ring. (2020)

    I can not say enough wonderful things about Raymond and his efforts to find my ring. My stomach had been in knots for two days while the ring was lost and like he mentioned when he found my ring and gave it back to me the tears of happiness just took started pouring out. I was worried I would never see the ring again! I was worried that once he saw the large area to search that he would not want to take on the task but Raymond did not shy away from the challenge. He had a plan and a system with his flags to ensure he did a thorough search and he never got in a rush despite the cold temperatures. After finding the ring he showed us exactly where he found it which I really appreciated. Raymond was so nice, pleasant to talk to, and although I hope I never lose my ring again if I do i feel like I have made a friend and I will gladly call him again. I would recommend Raymond to anyone who has lost a ring.

    Georgia from Charlottesville

    I had almost given up hope until, on a whim, I googled “lost ring professional metal detectors.” Luckily, I was led to this site and Ray! He took my call immediately, and we were able to set up a time for him to come to my house right away. It was a scorcher, but that did not deter him in any way. He searched for hours, and even though he didn’t find it on the first try, he was not at all phased. He gave me a plan moving forward and thank God we decided to take another stab at it. Again, Ray was quick to set up a follow up search and the rest is history!

    I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in search of something precious to them! He is reliable, positive and determined!

    Thank you, Ray!

  • He was prompt, professional and did a great job. (2020)

    Item

    As you can see in the picture, we live in the woods. During fall, the leaves blow around and form little piles of ‘leaf drifts’. The ring slipped off while I was scooping up one of these piles and dumping it into a bin. Since I knew where it had come off, I was sure finding it wasn’t going to be a problem.

    After spending an hour searching the same 10×10 foot area, I broke down and had my wife come help. Still no luck. It turns out a small silver and gold ring is naturally camouflaged to match the surrounding leaves. It was getting colder and darker and the whole process was disheartening. I went in and found theringfinders.com.

    Ray came out and a short time later we got the text. He was prompt, professional and did a great job. I hope not to ever have to use his services again but would no hesitate to call him for any sort of recovery. Thanks Ray!

    10/10 all around!!

    My husband was so upset when the gardening mishap happened. I wasn’t sure if the lost ring would turn up, or if we’d have to replace it. After numerous attempts to recover it on our own, I ended up calling Ray to help us.

    Ray was extremely responsive and after our introductory phone call, he was out searching for the ring within 48 hours. After a couple of hours searching our property, I was shocked he found the ring! He is so talented, he made it seem effortless. We are thrilled to have the ring returned to this rightful owner.

    If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, I highly recommend contacting Ray.

  • If you are looking for someone passionate about retrieving lost items with extreme integrity, Ray is easily the one. (2020)

    Item

    As a Marine, I was looking for someone with not only the skill set to find my wedding band but the dedication to actually get it done. I was amazed when I first called Ray about his willingness to hear my concern and immediately come over to search (literally less than 30 minutes). The odds of someone doing that are extremely rare these days. Ray being a Navy veteran made me at ease from the very first meeting. His kind nature and willingness to hear my story was like no other. I could not believe his perseverance in finding my band despite numerous long days of 90+ degrees and extremely high humidity. Ray even got in a wet suit and searched in deep water but would not give up even when my hope was dwindling. I can not explain the excitement and goosebumps I had when he called me late Friday saying “Lyle, I found it”. At first, I thought, that’s impossible given the scope of the search area but then came the photo in a text:) If you are looking for someone passionate about retrieving lost items with extreme integrity, Ray is easily the one. The deepest gratitude to you sir!
