Found another ring!

Well, I made this ladies day for sure. She and her Fiancé were removing trees from their property a few days ago. During the removal, she took her engagement ring off and asked her fiancé to hold it for her until they were done. Instead of putting it away, he slipped it onto his pinky finger temporarily. While on his finger, it came off and he didn’t realize it until later in the day and had no indication of where exactly it may have dropped in the yard. Part of the area they were working in, sloped downhill into the woods behind their house with tons of leaves and fresh mud readily available.
I went out to their place yesterday with my Nox 800 and had no luck. I assured them I’d be back today and had searched again and just about gave up. I asked if there were any other areas that she could remember that he was in that I didn’t search. She recalled that at one point, her fiancé threw a strap around a tree at the edge of the woods. I hadn’t searched the opposite side of that area at all so I went in there and started sweeping the metal detector. Within the last few feet of area left, I got a ping that rang up Gold numbers and it showed that it was right on top of the ground. There were tons of leaves and other things there so I got out my handheld sensor probe and was able to pull it outta the leaves. To say she was happy was an understatement as she was standing there when I found it. She started to cry and gave me a huge hug. I’m so glad I was successful and I know this will certainly be something they’ll both never forget about. This is why I belong to The Ring Finders!

 

Lost engagement ring found with metal detector

from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

I received a call from a good friend in Georgia back in March. He tells me about his wife losing her engagement and wedding ring along a highway. He had a rented metal detector and he said it was going crazy with all the trash along the road. I was able to hear thru the phone what the detector was doing so I was able to help him with his settings to aide in his search. He eventually found the wedding band but not able to locate the engagement ring. That really bothered me cause I knew it couldn’t be far but a 9 hour drive kept me from going. Anyways, here is the story from my friend Jason from Georgia.

“Your ring is still there,” said Steve, trying to reassure me over the phone. I had given up hope. On March 3 my wife lost both her wedding band and engagement ring on the grassy shoulder of a two-lane highway in rural Georgia. I rented a metal detector and contacted my friend Steve in Ohio for advice since I knew he had experience with this sort of thing. Thanks to his guidance, I located the wedding band, but after returning three times to search with my rented equipment, I finally despaired of ever again regaining my wife’s engagement ring.

Then Steve came down to Georgia for some turkey hunting with me. Six weeks had passed since my wife lost her ring, but one afternoon on our way back from the field, he suggested that we go have another look. Even though I had little expectation that we would find the ring, I agreed.

The rough grass along the road’s edge was now twice as tall. We found plenty of buried aluminum cans and other random garbage. I felt like we were wasting time, but Steve was not dissuaded from his task. After searching for about an hour, his equipment gave him the kind of strong reading that he was hoping for. “This could be it,” he said. Something small and round was sparkling in the sunlight as the detector’s coil swept the grass to and fro. We both knew what it was.

I had spent more than twelve hours searching that highway shoulder with speeding automobiles whizzing by just a few feet from my head, without finding that elusive engagement ring. Now Steve, with his experience and advanced equipment, had located the ring in barely an hour.

That evening I surprised my wife with the ring, and her relief and elation was a thrill to behold. Thanks Steve

Diamond Rings Found in the Naples Florida Sand by Metal Detector Mark Greul & why you need to hire a professional metal detector

[April 23, 2019 – Naples, Florida] Got a call from Brian’s wife who reported having lost two rings at the beach.  The rings she’s carefully guarded in her pocket were likely lost as she was tending her children and applying more sunscreen.  So, why hire a professional metal detector?  Well, several hours of searching, traffic, and sifting through the sand had only managed to broaden the search area and drive the rings deeper.  The wedding band was the first to be found.  It gave off a faint signal being buried in about 5-6 inches of sand and canted at a 45 decgree angle.  The diamond solitaire proved to be a bit more tricky.  It was found nearby, yielding only an occasional very very faint signal as it was 6-8 inches deep standing nearly straight up.  The rest is now history and another “story” added to a family’s memorable vacation in Naples, Florida.  What was once lost has been found – thank God!

If you’ve lost a ring or sentimental item, don’t hesitate calling.  Literally, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!  With years of metal detecting experience, the best and most sophisticated metal detecting equipment, and numerous recoveries and even more finds, the testimonials and results are why you need to hire a professional metal detector.  Call Mark (239)500-RING [7464] or Text (239)770-7873 – metal detector rental services – Naples, Marco Island, Ft.

White Gold Diamond Ring Lost in the Sand in Litchfield, SC. Found and Returned

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

Rhonda called me about 8:30 pm saying I had been referred to her by the Minelab Distributor in the area, and was hopeful I could help find one of her lost rings. She said that she had lost 5 rings in the sand after she had taken them off to apply sun tan lotion. She went on to say, that her and her boyfriend had found 4 of the 5 but couldn’t find her diamond ring. She was wondering when I might be available to help look for it. I don’t like waiting to do a ring search because too many things could happen between the time of loss and me getting there to search. So, I told her I’d be there in about 30 minutes, got the address, grabbed my detector and was on the road.

I called her when I got there and she met me in the parking lot. We walked out to the beach and luckily she knew exactly where the area was that the ring was lost. I think it took longer for the detector to turn on and me to get ready then it did to find her ring. She put me dead on the spot, 3 swings and I got the tone, looked at the numbers on the detector and saw the 9/10 and knew I had white gold. I took a small scoop of sand, checked the hole to make sure I had her ring and searched the scoop. I very gently pulled her beautiful diamond ring out of my scoop. She was a little shocked that it turned up so quickly. A great happy ending to their vacation.

Rhonda, thank you so much for trusting me to find your lost treasure. Have a safe trip home.

Boundary markers located in Zeeland, Michigan

from Holland (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-616-808-9033

Got a call today from Dave E., requesting help in finding a couple of boundary markers for his yard.  He just bought this new house in January and now he has plans to add some shrubbery and a privacy screen for his hot tub and really needs to know the exact boundaries of his property.  I called my ringfinder fellow hunter, Gregg Larabel, and he and I drove out to Dave’s house today.  One side of Dave’s property was marked on the road pavement with the estimated boundary.  We measured in 33 feet from the center of the road and found the first marker with really no trouble.  The next step was to find the marker in the very back of his corner lot.  In the picture with Dave you can see the neighbors play area/slide for their kids and Dave’s boundary marker is just to the left of that play area.  We had a little trouble finding that marker, finding a sprinkler head first and then the play area had a steel edging around it.  Finally found the steel rod but the yellow cap was missing on this rod.  The third corner steel boundary marker was sticking out of the ground already, so now he knows the exact area of his corner lot.  After some good stories back and forth we  parted our ways with another good job done.

Wedding Ring Found In Vermont Country Town

from Burlington (Vermont, United States)
Contact: 1-802-461-8359

4/22/19
About a week ago I got an email from the wife of a gentleman who had lost his wedding ring on their rural Vermont farm. This young couple had bought a beautiful 50 acre farm a little over a year ago.

Last Spring, when the snows left, he headed outside to work. He had been working in the garden and chasing a runaway pig out in their hayfield. When he went back in the house, he noticed his ring was missing from his finger. He was very devastated because this ring had also been his father’s wedding ring. Every time he went to visit his dad he hoped he wouldn’t notice it was missing.

So, we had to wait until today to search, because of late melting snow and ice. When I got there he showed me the areas to search. I expected at least a 3 hour search, but I found it about 6” deep in his garden, and in the first 5 minutes! I yelled across the yard to him and he hooted and hollered back with a very happy sound. Very very happy man!!
