Char was sitting on a Pontoon at the dock when her friend asked her if she could try on her Diamond wedding ring. After her friend checked it out, her friends 3 year old daughter wanted to see it. Instead of handing the ring back to Char, the 3 year old decided to throw it to her. The ring bounced off Char’s hand and into the water. The water is approx. 5 feet deep in this area and very mucky and weedy. It only took 2 scoops of muck and the ring was sitting right on top. What a great sight to see!!! Glad we could help out Char.
Michael lost his white gold wedding band while playing football on a sandbar in Lake Amelia. He watched it come off his finger and tried to retrieve it right away as he was in waiste deep water. No Luck, so he rented a metal detector and went back. Still no luck. He looked on the internet and found “The Ring Finders”. Lake Amelia is around 2 hours away from my place, so when I found the ring I decided to stay a little while longer and see if I could find any old relics from the 1800’s. A lot of shot gun shells and pop tabs and then came another gold wedding band. Anyone reading this blog, if you have lost a valuable and you remember the approx. location, no matter how long ago it was. I have found many rings and other valuables just searching for relics – I would Love to get them back to their rightful owners!
Jason contacted me with a huge problem. He had been married 3 days and his wedding ring slipped off his finger while swimming in square lake. I know from experience that this lake is hunted frequently by detectorists, so..getting the hunt under way as soon as possible was critical. I cleared my schedule for the next day and asked him to meet me out at the lake to pinpoint where he was swimming as this is a very large beach. He did his job! It took me less then 5 minutes and I had his ring in my basket. This is one of the nicest rings I have seen – Take care Jason and I am so glad I could help out!
David went fishing last night and it was a bust, as he returned his boat to the slip and was covering it, his wedding band slipped off his finger and into the 8 feet of merky water. He searched the internet and found “The Ring Finders” which pointed him to me. I wasn’t very busy so I packed up my scuba gear and met him at his slip. As he knew exactly where the ring came off it only took around 10 minutes and it was back on his hand. He said even though fishing was slow and he lost his ring – getting it back made his day, and he said his wife would be very happy also!! Take Care David and good luck on your next fishing trip.
David lost his white gold wedding band in Minnetonka’s regional swimming “pond”. He called and said he would be at a softball tournament in kansas City and was wondering if I could try to recover his band. He describe as best he could, the location in the water – He did a great job!! It took about an hour of searching and I got that great hit on my detector. David said he was going to surprise his wife and make it a great romantic evening with her slipping the ring back on his finger. Glad I could help out!!!!
I was contacted by Eric as he had lost his Platinum wedding band while getting his sail boat ready at his mooring anchor. He was actually in a blow up canoe while getting his sail boat set for a day on the lake, when off popped his ring into 10 feet of water. He tried to mark it with a small bobber tied to a washer. Storms have gone through the area lately and I think they must have washed away his marker as I couln’t find it as I was scuba diving the area in search for the ring. I was down approx. 15 minutes when I got a great hit on my detector. With visibility being very poor, I had to just sift with my hands and grab hands full of silt and wave it across my detector. After a few handfulls that wonderful full strength sound shot out and there was the Platinum ring. Needless to say, Eric was very happy to have his wedding band back on his hand. Then he called his wife with the good news and he said she was even more relieved than him! What a great feeling also for me being able to help them out.
I was contacted by a young lady that had lost her late Mothers Gold / Diamond ring at a 4th of July party at her boyfriends home on the lake. She wasn’t sure if the ring had fallen off while in the yard or when she went swimming off the dock. I decided to check the grounds before getting into my scuba gear as the water was over 6 feet deep in the swimming area. After findng a quarter, a beer can and a dime – Up popped the Diamond ring. So glad it was found as I am sure this ring meant a lot to Jennie!
Recovered this gold wedding band last weekend in approx. 5 feet of water.
This search was in a large area, but able to recover in approx. 4 feet of water.
My family went up north Minnesota to a resort on Leech Lake. While there I decided to help out the owner and try to find some old mouring anchors. As I was scuba diving I found an old bracelet. When I returned home, I got a chance to clean it up a bit and was able to read a name on the bracelet. Off to the the internet and only one person was found with this name and he was in Omaha Nebraska. I called and sure enough it was him. He is currently 68 years old and said he had lost the bracelet when he was in High School. His family used to go up to the resort and he was fishing off the dock and the bracelet fell off into the water. He said he searched but couldn’t find it. He was so happy as it brought back a lot of fond memories. I sendt it back to him and I hope it is a personal treasure that can be handed down in his family with a great story for the generations to come. Take care – Darrin
