- Land/Shallow Water Search
Cost For My Service
It is almost impossible to set a fee for my service, there are so many variables. I will accept a gratuity if offered. Based on what it's worth to you and what you can afford when I find your valuable.. If the item is not found I would like reimbursement for my commuting expenses. That is also up to you and what you can afford. 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.

Jeff took his ring off to put on suntan lotion and put it in his hat and forgot. It was not until he was in the water before he remembered. After he got home he found my information on theringfinders.com website and texted me. On my first trip I could not find it after searching […]
I got a call that Jena that she had put her ring in her pants pocket and when she took her pants off the ring was gone. She did all the right things by marking off the area it was lost and staying right there. It took about 4 swings and there it was! Another […]
Lost and Found in Va Beach (2021)

Targets on the beach were far and few between but I got a good signal at the water line. As i was digging I noticed a guy in a chair behind me watching. When I brought the ring up he yelled “That’s my ring”. Of course we have all heard that story but he said […]

Steven Andrews - Testimonials
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."
