- Land/Shallow Water Search
Cost For My Service
I work on a ''Reward Basis'' you pay what it's worth to you and what you can afford for me to come out and find your lost item.
You must have a general idea of location lost and location must be somewhat searchable. (not in a house or scrapyard! (LOL))
Just about anywhere including shallow water.
50 mile radius from Va Beach, VA
Steven Andrews's Bio
I have been metal detecting since my retirement in 2011 and find the most joy in recovering lost sentimental items including rings! You must agree that the recovery may be videotaped and used on my youtube channel.

Calling for a friend! lol (2023)
I was walking off the beach and noticed a cell phone just sitting on the boardwalk. I asked around and nobody claimed it. I picked the phone up and it was unlocked! I called a recent number on the phone and told him the story and he turned to his friend in the room and […]
Mark was playing football out in about 4 foot of water when his ring came off. I had to wait until the next day due to the tide. It took me about 2 hours and had to get Mark to come out and help me locate where he had been. They were both very grateful […]
The Grass Ate it! (2023)
Josh lost his ring in the yard and could not find it! He searched online and found my number. It was definitely a little harder to find than I thought! He said his wife will be happy and I got him off the hook!
This ring has history! Here is the story. My wife’s name is Emme and we had been dating for about a year and for Valentine’s Day in 1995 I gave it to her she never really took it off until her mother passed away and then she started wearing her mothers jewelry and as my […]
I got lucky on this one! (2023)
This was a shocker! Got a call about a lost engagement ring but she did not know if it was lost at the beach or not. She just noticed it missing when she got home. These can be tough! I searched one area for an hour with no luck and as I was leaving I […]

Steve is a literal angel on earth... (2023)
Steve is a literal angel on earth.
This is Ali, Mark’s wife, and Steve isn’t kidding when he says we were grateful for his help (really, that’s a wild understatement!). I found the Ring Finder site on a whim after running some google searches for what to do if you lost a ring. Steve works in the Virginia Beach area so I texted him having zero expectations (and mild skepticism over this process!). Steve texted me back right away and we had a call to talk through what happened, and he came up first thing the next morning to help. Meeting Steve you can see that he’s genuine and truly there to help (seriously), which put us right at ease. Steve was out in the ocean for over two hours with us, never giving up (even when we were losing hope!). We were in shock when he actually found it! The ring is so important to us; it felt like a miracle.
Steve is kind, hard working, and gifted with the detector. We truly couldn’t be more grateful to him. If you’ve lost something metal in the ocean in Virginia Beach area (and it’s reasonably close to shore), don’t hesitate to contact Steve. He’s a hero.
My family will forever be grateful (2019)
"For years, I had heard various stories from different members of my family regarding rings that had been lost on my grandparents’ property. One story mentioned my grandfather’s lost wedding, another was about a missing class ring belonging to one of my uncles, and a further one revolved around my father’s also absent class ring. At one point in my youth, my parents purchased me my own metal detector after I decided I wanted to see if any of these stories were true. Alas, my childhood inability to focus on one thing for more than a short period of time got the better of me and I gave up on the search.
Now over a decade later, my grandparents’ home of almost 60 years is being sold and my ninety-two year old grandmother is moving in with my parents. While packing up their house, I suddenly remembered some of those old stories and talked to my grandmother about them. With the sale of the house pressing down on us, I felt a sudden compulsion to try and determine if any of those lost rings were actually out there once and for all. I pulled out the old metal detector, did a little searching, but alas it was to no avail. Not willing to give up just yet, I did a little googling and happened to come across Ringer Finders.
I found a few local nearby guys through the site’s directory and sent them both messages. I got a response from Steve Andrews within hours of messaging him and he agreed to come out the following day. Unexpectedly, the next morning Tom Clyde messaged me as well to tell me he was already on his way. I was worried about both men showing up at the same time when they were expecting to be detecting alone. Fortunately, I was happily surprised to find out that both men knew each other and were willing to search together. With low expectations in place given the information we were going off of, I was shocked when after only forty minutes Steve pulled my uncle’s class ring from the ground. Both men were extremely professional, easy to talk to and communicate with, and were more than reasonable in their pricing. If anyone in the Hampton Roads area needs a ring or anything else of its kind found then they should not hesitate to reach out to either Steve or Tom. I am firmly of the belief that if either of these two men can’t find what you’re missing than no one can. These guys know what they are doing with their years of experience and various successful hunts serving as evidence for their skills. My family will forever be grateful for their work especially my grandmother who was profoundly happy to have a piece of one her late children back again."
