Vintage Gold Wedding Ring Lost in 2013 - Found and Returned in 2019 - The Ring Finders

  • from Portland (Oregon, United States)

I recently shipped a lost wedding ring from Oregon to Hanoi, Vietnam. The couple lost it on their wedding day in 2013 near Eugene, Oregon… And Now, The Rest of The Story.
During an outdoor wedding at a large barn & acreage setting, while exchanging rings, Leisha asked Chad to put her band in his pocket because it didn’t feel comfortable with her engagement ring. Upon retiring for the evening Chad realized he no longer had the ring and after a fun filled evening of pictures, dancing, handshakes and hugs it could be almost anywhere on the property. They contacted the wedding venue host but no amount of visual searching helped. Chad’s job takes them to many countries and recently, while in Hanoi, he learned of ‘The Ring Finders’, contacted me, and the hunt was on!
Pictures of the event were invaluable and Nancy, the owner, was very accommodating. I used a Minelab CTX 3030 for this search as it gives me solid identification and a visual representation of round ring like objects. An 8 hour round-trip drive and 2.5 hour search netted the ring along with surprises and of joy. “You have got to be kidding me” was Chad’s first response followed by many other words of astonishment.
The ring is now on Leisha’s finger, mission complete!

    I could simply not believe how easy Del made this entire process. I wish I had known about Ring Finders years ago, but Del wasn’t worried at all about the elapsed years. He was very prompt, direct, and friendly throughout the entire exchange, offering all kinds of detail about the entire search plan and procedure. Luckily we had quite a bit of photo documentation of the day of the loss, and I had fun looking at satellite photos and circling areas of highest likelihood at Del’s request. He made excellent use of that information and was super efficient in his searching. I had hesitantly gotten my hopes up when he first told me how certain he was, especially given the size of the property and my time- and alcohol-befuddled memory of the events of that day. While I was excited to hear about the search, a significant part of me was expecting an email saying that all daylight hours were utilized but ultimately fruitless. Instead he let me know that he had the ring in hand in time to be home for lunch! What a rock star. Dell knows the technical side of the business well but also excelled and proactively handling all of the personal details too. He made the effort to woo the property owner and reassure her about any concerns, and he had that ring in the mail and flying across the globe to me immediately. I didn’t even have time to plan an elaborate reveal, it was incredible. From beginning to end, our entire interaction with Del was amazing, and I can still hardly believe how easy this was–for me as the customer, that is. I truly wish I had known about Ring Finders and Del years ago, as I would have called much, much sooner.
