Wedding Ring Lost Playing Volleyball .. Santa Monica, CA. .. Recovered

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

It was about 6:30pm when a lady named Esmot called me from Santa Monica asking my help to find her husband’s wedding band. He had lost it in the sand while playing volleyball.
I met them an hour later where the loss occurred. Esmot and her husband Salmon showed me the area where he had felt the ring come off his finger. I backed off about 10 feet to get a few practice swings in before getting serious. Immediately there was a signal. I went to grab my sand scoop to checkout the signal. The sand scoop was still in my car just a short distance from the search location. I almost tried to retrieve the target by hand but I didn’t want to look stupid, a ring can just keep slipping through your fingers in the sand.
Handing my detector for Esmot to hold while I retrieved my sand scoop from my car. On my walk back to the volleyball court, they came walking towards me with big smiles. They had found it using my metal detector. Esmot got curious while holding the detector, so she swung it over the spot where I had a signal. She put her hand in the sand finding the ring right away. Very lucky for her, ask anybody that has spent hours searching sand with their fingers.
They were very happy as newlyweds that have only had the matching rings for 4 months. We took a few minutes to take a few photos then the took of to meet their friends for dinner.

Gold Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Joyously Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was getting ready to eat my dinner last night when I received a call from Judith who had lost her earring in the sands of the beach. She had been walking along when she adjusted her hat. When she moved her hat, she heard a click, and reached up to notice one of the earrings her grandmother had given her was missing, it must have hooked in her hair which moved with her hat. She desperately searched for it as did her friends and some of the other beach goers to no avail. She then was given my number, and called for help. I was only 20 to 30 minutes away, so I grabbed my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach Judith and I found each other, and she led me to the area of the loss. I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area by deductive reasoning. I began my search as I thought it should be done. My first signal was a hair pin. I then, as I moved in closer to where Judith and her friends had been sitting, received a real good sound in the head phones, and dug with my scoop. As I pulled the scoop out Judith told me her friends were sure the loss took place further out, and not where I was searching. While she was explaining this to me, I was looking at her earring in my scoop. That is when I reached in and held up her earring jokingly stating that the ring I found could not be the one we were looking for. Withing 2 minutes I was able to hand her earring back to her. Right away instant joy flooded her, and everybody around got excited about the recovery. When inquiring further about her grandmother and what this gift meant to Judith, I could see that it was a very emotional recovery indeed. What a wonderful thing to be able to produce this type of joy when something you thought was lost for good is found and returned.

White lake, Highland, Michigan yields wedding band

from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)

I got a text from a detecting friend, Dave Boyer, about a ring that was lost in Duck lake. This is a home we had visited before looking for a sister in law’s lost wedding ring. Tim H. and myself were driving to a seeded hunt put on by the Michigan Metal Detectors group when I got Dave’s text. After a successful and fun afternoon with the MMD, we headed back home but stopped on the way to White lake. When we drove up to the house Ron H. was there to meet us. Ron indicated that he had done some yard work in the front yard then went to the back of the house to reset his pump in the water. He uses the water form the lake to water his lawn thus having a pump in the lake just off his dock area. Ron let Tim use his waders and I had mine with me and we proceeded out in the water in about 2 to 3 feet deep. I moved the long hose and the pump head to the side about 5 feet so the metal would not interfere with our search. I got a signal near the shore and dug up a dime then walked out deeper where Ron had been re-positioning the pump and got a good signal, after I had Tim verify that it could be gold, I dug it up and in the top of the scoop was Ron’s gold wedding band. Needless to say he was thrilled to death.

Ron’s wife Flora, came out and was so happy because that was the ring that she gave him with their vows and didn’t want to buy him a new one.

Wedding band recovered in Denver, Colorado

from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Jacob was in the backyard playing with his dog when his carbide tungsten ring flew off his hand. Jacob, his wife and brother searched for the ring for several minutes but the ring was avoiding recovery. Doug, Jacob’s father, found my profile on The Ring Finders and called me. Within an hour I was at their house and heard the story of how the ring was lost and the potential location of it’s hiding spot. I ran over the area with one of my favorite detectors but evidently I just missed the ring. I then pulled out the good old reliable XLT/ Bigfoot coil combination and a few minutes later Jacob’s ring was back where it belonged, with Jacob.

Lost Car Key in the Sand – Found and Returned Oak Island NC

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I got a call from Harrison on Saturday, May 20th around 6:15pm stating he had lost a key in the sand on Oak Island and asked if I could help find it. Unfortunately, I was out of town and couldn’t personally help, but assured him I’d find someone that could and would call him back.

I first called Matt Fry, TRF Myrtle Beach who didn’t answer. I then called my son-in-law Donnie, who has helped me with finds in the past and he didn’t answer either. By now I’m thinking this isn’t looking good. I called my daughter who told me Donnie would probably be home in a couple of hours. I called Harrison back and brought him up to speed on what was going on and again assured him that someone would be up there to help find his key. Matt called me back sounding sick saying that he couldn’t make it.

I sent Donnie a text with all the details including Harrison’s phone number and told him to contact Harrison and let me know. A little after 8 Donnie texted me back saying he just got the text but wasn’t able to contact Harrison but did leave him a voice mail. I contacted Harrison, told him Donnie was going to call him right back, got a hold of Donnie and told him to call Harrison again.

At 10:40 I got a text from Donnie saying it took him 45 seconds to find the key. Outstanding!! I later learned that the missing key was Harrison’s car key, and with no spare he had to leave it parked at the beach. Donnie had to pick Harrison up at a rental house, drive him to the beach area and then find the key.

Great job Donnie, thanks so much for helping out and finding/returning the lost key.

Harrison, thank you for trusting The Ring Finders to help find your lost treasure!


How to find lost rings on sandy Vancouver Beaches

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)









How to find lost rings on sandy Vancouver Beaches? Call TheRingFinders! With close to 400 members world wide you now have a second chance to find what you thought was lost forever…

Yesterday was the first beautiful summer day we had in Vancouver, I just got off work and I was relaxing at home when the phone rang… The first words were ”are you the guy who finds rings”? I jumped into my car and headed to the beach and by the sounds of it, this search wouldn’t take long.

We met at the beach and we discuss the search, the young lady had circled the area where she believed the ring was lost. This helps a lot as it puts me in the correct location (hopefully) Chantelle went on to tell me that the ring was a gift from her late grandmother and she only had it for three years, you can imagine how heartbroken she was at the thought of never seeing it again.

After only a few minutes and one bobby pin that kept falling through my sand scoop, I saw her Grandmothers ring in my scope! I love my job because when you present the lost item to that person you get to see what it truly means to have a second chance to find what people thought was lost forever.













Here’s the video of the search below…
