Cost For My Service

I work on an ‘Upfront Call Out Fee plus Donation’ basis.

Once I know how and where you have lost your 'precious’, I will know what will be involved in searching for it, and can then tell you how much the call out will be.

I then donate my time, equipment, experience and karma to the search for the cause of your ‘lost smile‘.

If the search is successful, you donate what it is worth to you, to have had me come and if 'The Lord of the Rings' was willing, perform a little magic and re-unite you with your ‘precious’.

IMPORTANT: Time is of the essence with these searches and is often the #1 factor (along with an accurate loss location), in making a successful recovery. So please DON’T DELAY, CALL (24/7), tell me your ‘loss story’ ASAP, and greatly improve our chances to see ‘a bit of magic’.

I donate 10% to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society - defending our marine ecosystems.

Search Types

I can offer a full range of ‘Metal Detecting Services’ including my specialty of UNDERWATER SEARCHES for lost ring’s, jewellery or anything else containing metal.

Search Locations

Anywhere really. Cover my costs upfront and I’ll go to Antarctica if you want! Just divert your Lear Jet to Perth International for me!

Sean Boddie's Bio

As the West Coast Metal Detecting Club’s ‘FIND OF THE YEAR’ shield holder, I guess I've passed my 'Apprenticeship in Metal Detecting' and am well qualified to hunt for your ‘precious’.

I joined ‘TheRingFinders’ after discovering this wonderful, global directory, connecting people around the world who have lost something 'precious' with a local ‘Metal Detecting Specialist’ who has the skills, experience and passion to reunite them.

Why do I do it? Because I love it! It is immensely rewarding, challenging and addictive to reunite people with something which is very special or sentimental to them, that they cannot simply replace, and that they truly thought was ‘gone forever’.

I'm very proud of my success rate and hate to fail so I really give it everything to ‘perform a miracle’ for you and return the source of your distress!

Really love what I do…

  • Thanks a Million. (2019)


    Brilliant Service!! Can’t believe my luck in finding Sean at such a stressful time. I called thought he might not respond but thankfully got back to me within a couple of minutes and was onsite a couple hours later. I didn’t want to leave it to chance with the rising tide losing the exact area it was in. So glad Sean managed to find it within seconds of arriving! Sean made quick work of it. Thanks so much for relocating my Wedding band mate. Would have never been the same if lost even replaced. Worth every penny. I had no doubt you would be able to find it and happy with the agreed reward. Win win. I can see why you love your job Sean. Thanks a Million.

  • Thanks very much for all your good work Sean. (2017)


    Thanks very much for all your good work Sean. Nothing was too much for you - racing to the beach on a moment's notice on a Sunday afternoon, strong winds, heavy swell. Very impressed with the way you went about everything, and a great result in the end. Much appreciated. Brett

  • I applaud Sean's professionalism, passion and determination. (2017)


    When I realized I lost my wedding band at a farm at Margaret River, I was devastated and pretty much gave up all hope of finding it. I turned to Google for some emotional support (and found that statistically many husbands lose their rings because we are just more careless); then I found TheRingFinders and Sean from Perth.

    Best decision ever. I am so glad I enlisted Sean's help to find the ring. He did so in systematic manner after understanding the routes I took at the farm. I was overjoyed when he called to inform me that he had found it 24 hours before I left the country. It was truly a miracle, given that Sean did it under some very harsh weather. I applaud Sean's professionalism, passion and determination.

    Thank you so much once again!

  • I’m so grateful for your efforts and enthusiasm in finding it. I feel whole again. (2017)


    Hi Sean

    Reading this brought tears of happiness AGAIN as I recall the last week and being reunited with my ring, which has felt much like a dream. This ring is one of those special rings that can’t just be remade or bought again, it signifies my first born child, years of marriage to a gorgeous man, and a Silversmith’s name which my daughter now carries. It is not something money can replace and I’m so grateful for your efforts and enthusiasm in finding it. I feel whole again.

    Thanks Sean!

  • I’m so grateful to Sean finding my ring. (2017)


    I’m so grateful to Sean finding my ring. Also the fact he came the next day after I phoned him, that certainly helped my feelings of anxiety that my ring was lost forever. I’m a very lucky lady. I’ve bought a lotto ticket, hope my luck will hold.
