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.
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.
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…

On Easter Friday, one year to the day after finding a 78 diamond engagement ring (See post “Lost in the drink… “) in the surf at South Beach, I was back in the drink hoping to get lucky again! My sister and a good friend had travelled from New Zealand for a bit of R’n’R and […]
Geraldine had been enjoying some time with her family on Rottnest Island when sitting in the sand she had lost her sentimental watch given to her by her husband Keith. On the phone she explained they would shortly be returning to Perth so I organised to meet them at their home so they could show me […]
Every year in March a bunch of nutters contest the Perth to Rottnest Island swim, a 2o km swim from the mainland through sharky waters to the pub in Thomson Bay, Rottnest Island. On the day of the swim I’d heard that several groups of swimmers in this years race were plucked from the water […]
Bodan had been playing with his son in the water when he lost his wedding band at a remote stretch of beach which required a 4wd to access. As usual with water searches I explained to Bodan the ‘need for speed’ and organised a search the same day despite the conditions looking marginal at best. I […]
Standing in of all places ‘The Prospectors Patch’ metal detecting supplies store I was called by Curt to ask if I could find his 10th century viking wedding ring, which he’d become separated from during a kitesurfing whoopsee in the Swan River at Applecross. I organised to meet Curt at the loss site when he’d […]

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)
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.
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.
