Lost Ring Found In Manoa Valley

  • from Waikīkī (Hawaii, United States)

I received a call from Mike, who’s recently retired from his roofing company and handed over his business to his son and now has plenty of time hunting for old bottles in the Manoa valley. Many wealthy people lived in the valley, and their trash dumps held a lot of very collectible bottles.
Mike asked me if I could help him and a few friends locate where the old trash dumps might be using a metal detector. I said, sure, I’ll give it a try.
After about 3 or 4 hours, Cali came up to me and said I lost my ring last week while working on my farm about a 30-minute hike in the dense jungle. I said, what the hell are we doing looking for bottles when we could be looking for gold.
After tromping through a rough jungle, we came upon the spot where he lost his ring, and sure enough, it was right where he said it might be.
Another happy customer!

Finding A Platinum Wedding Band

  • from Indianapolis (Indiana, United States)

Lost Platinum Wedding Band found in Indianapolis, IN on April 14, 2021. On Thursday, April 8th, Justin M was working in a muddy flower bed in his backyard. He had been digging in the mud it was adhering to his hands and fingers. He was also tossing bricks from the flower bed to an area near his fence. Later that day as he was cleaning the mud from his hands he noticed that his wedding band was no longer on his finger. He purchased a beginner metal detector in hopes of finding it himself but was unable to make a recovery. I received a call from him on Monday, April 12th. There had been more hard rain over the weekend and he was concerned that the ring may have been washed under the fence into a ditch in the yard next door or stepped on and buried in the mud. About an hour and 45 minutes and a several small pieces of metallic foil later, I was about 10 feet from the flower bed near the fence when my ATMax came up with a 51 signal in the VID scale. There had been several similar signals earlier but this time it was the ring and as you can see in the picture below, it is back on Justin’s finger.

Wedding band recovered in Hillsborough NC

  • from Hillsborough (North Carolina, United States)

Not much to tell here. I got a call from a gentleman about a ring he lost on his property. He was splitting and tossing wood in a couple different places on his property when he lost it. I searched all the areas and found it in about a hour. Was very glad I could help him.


Lost Platinum Ring Found on a Second Chance at Seabright Beach

  • from Santa Cruz (California, United States)

I started the hunt at first light for the platinum band that had been lost two evenings prior. I was hopeful as I had some good intelligence to start the search with. 45 minutes later when the owner arrived I was still hunting for the ring. He updated me so I modified my search and kept at it. Approx. 3 hours and 6-7000 sq.ft. of beach later and it was time to call it. I felt I had searched well beyond where it could reasonably have been if it was there so I packed up and texted the owner the disappointing news. It’s always disheartening to have a “no show” but this time I felt like it really should have been there. I reversed my decision and decided to give it another search but in the opposite direction. This is a technique I don’t generally employ in the sand but I figured it couldn’t hurt … I just felt I had to give it one more shot in the highest probability area. I spiraled out from my starting point counterclockwise this time and 10 minutes in I hit a solid signal I did not get before. It appeared to be too high for the platinum ring I was searching for but I clear all targets so I scraped into the sand expecting a bottle cap … when I felt the heft of the ring against my finger I instantly knew I had found it! Sometimes they’re easy, sometimes they never show and sometimes they just make you work a little harder to get them back home. peace

Lost Diamond Pendant, Burnaby BC… Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

Today I received a call from a young lady who told me that she had lost her gold & diamond pendant. She told me that she had lost it off of her patio and she felt it come off but didn’t hear where it landed. Her and her girlfriend had spent hours looking for the pendant with no luck. The reason that she knew to call TheRingFinders was because a month earlier her husband had hired me to look for his lost platinum wedding band. Unfortunately he lost it last summer, I had no luck or no chance in finding it because it was a heavily hunted beach a lot of time had passed before I did my search.

I arranged to meet the young lady after work and shortly after 8:30 PM I arrived at the search location, I met her and she showed me where she was standing when she lost her diamond pendent, she showed me where they were looking and also told me that she took all the plants out of the flower pot and search the dirt because it made sense to her it could’ve fallen into the flower pot. After not finding it in the flower pot she moved her search below the deck and into the grass but couldn’t understand why she didn’t see it in the short grass, I decided my search at the first place she thought it was lost and that was the flower pot, I put my pin pointer into the flower pot and I got a good signal right away. She was surprised to hear my pin-pointer go off and said that she had searched it with no luck earlier in the day.

Well after only about a minute of searching I found her beautiful diamond pendant and I was able to surprise her, it’s truly amazing where these sentimental items end up being found, especially after people have search for many hours and couldn’t find it.

I have the best job in the world I get to help find these beautiful items and also return the smile back to the people…I love my job!!

Lost wedding ring Waikiki Found

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find started mid day on Easter Sunday. We were just winding down from watching the little ones search the yard for eggs when I got a call from Katie the wife of Kylee and she was asking if I was available to help her husband who just lost his wedding ring in the water out front the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. I assured her that help was on the way and immediately told my wife the unfortunate news and so we gathered up the family and I grabbed  my gear for underwater hunting. As we were leaving the house I noticed the sun was on its way down as it was getting closer to the evening. Within the next 50  minutes I called to let Katie know I’m almost there and will park and head towards them at the beach. I arrived at the hotel and quickly grabbed my gear and headed to the beach where I met Katie and Kylee. Kylee and Katie greeted me at the beach and both were very appreciative for coming out on Easter to help them look for their lost wedding ring. I encouraged them that this is what we as ring finders love to do… help find lost items. As I talked to Kylee about the incident and gathered as much information I needed, I noticed the tide changed and there would be a difference to where this ring could be now many hours later.  I encouraged the couple that I will do my best and get Kylees ring back on his hand. As I started my search I noticed there was a lot I’ve trash in the area. I continue to go on the line in which Kylee believes he lost it. Close to the shoreline not much farther out than that and maybe up to waist deep of water. And as I continue to search the area back-and-forth I noticed there is no sign of a ring. So I decide to move into deeper waters. And low and behold I get a beautiful tone on my equinox. I dig for the target and there in my Xtreme scoop is Kylee’s ring. I look up to notice Kylee is not looking at me and so I ask him “hey Kylee can you tell me what the ring looks like”? Kaylee says it’s all black and nothing really other to it. And so I ask another question,  “Are you sure? He stops for a moment and as his mind is in ajar I ask does it look like this? As I hold out his ring in my hand he says “YES! That’s it”. We both rejoice as the beautiful sun starts to set behind us. A couple in passing looks at us and asked you find anything good? Our response YES HIS WEDDING RING. As we walked back to our towels in the sand we both get our phones out to call our wives. I can hear his phone as he can hear mine… the first thing out of my wife’s mouth was… you find it? I responded with a happy yes! I could hear Katie excited on the other line as well. Kylee and I both smile as we know this was more than a lost and found… what started out as a day for my kids to find Easter eggs ended with daddy finding a beautiful wedding ring in Waikiki under the shade of the most beautiful sunset. Kylee and I both shake hands and head our ways back to our families we love so much… another great recovery and another precious recovery back to the rightful owner! Always a pleasure.

I received a call from fellow ring finder “Doug Hardy” about a lost wedding set in someones backyard. He went and tried but the rain came in and he didn’t have enough time to continue. He asked if I would be able to go out and try. I said, “Sure, I will give her a call” I called Jaimie and got the details and I headed out there to see if I could find her lost rings.

After, about 30 mins of searching, I finally got the right signal I was looking for. BOOM got both rings and they were both still together too.

She was about 15 mins away at a baby shower, so I hoped in the truck, got the address and headed her way to reunite her with her rings.

Love this hobby, love reuniting folks with their lost treasures.

Karen and friends walked over a mile down the beach and decided to take a late swim. Karen took off the gold school ring she received from her grandmother who had passed last year and placed it on her shirt in the sand. When leaving she picked up the shirt and the ring vanished in the sand. She found our SRARC Ring Finders website and contacted Howard Metts who set up a hunt. Rob Clarke, Howard Metts, Joe Montione, Pat Montione, and Ed Osmar hunted for well over an hour. Finally Karens friend remembered he took a picture with GPS coordinates, this placed us a few hundred yards down the beach. Finally Howard came up with the ring at the waters edge. What a happy ending for Karen’s Florida vacation, she now has a story to go with her grandmother’s ring! Way to go team SRARC!
