Got a call from Matty St Garmain asking if I would like to help find a ring lost in a local bay beach. He tried twice to find it and couldn’t. He had pictures from the guy as to where he thought the ring might of been when his girl friend lost it while throwing a football in the water. On this day the water was down due to a west wind and I guess I just got out a little further than Matty had gone before and within a short time I got the ring. Matty made arraignments to meet up with them on the weekend to return the ring. Another Happy couple and Happy ending.

Bracelet recovered on Manasquan Beach

Got a call from Chuck asking if I could help find a bracelet his friend Sandy lost on the beach. They were out on the beach and she noticed her bracelet was missing. She wasn’t sure when it came off but they marked off the area they were sitting and hoped it was there, if not it could of been on the path they walked. She had it 20 years and was really hoping on getting it back. Turned out the clasp broke. I started to work the area they were sitting and on the 3rd pass back and forth I found her bracelet. Chuck had walked back up to the house while I detected not knowing how long it was going to take, he made it up to the house when I called to tell him I found it. He couldn’t believe how quick it took. I met him at the house and talked till Sandy came by to get her bracelet. She was so grateful and happy she got her bracelet back. The smile on her face said it all. Another happy ending and great recovery.

Lost Engagement Ring Recovered in Long Branch

Contact: 1-908-489-2371

Got a call from fellow Ring Finder Matty St Germain that a woman lost her engagement ring in Long Branch and was asking for help. He was at work and knew I was off and asked if I wanted to get it. I told him to give her my number and I’d head down.  Seems Michele was enjoying the day with friends and was down by the waters edge when a wave came up and hit her and she lost her balance and went down. In doing so she felt her ring slide off into the wash. She was right in front of the life guard stand so my search was narrowed down. Starting at the top of the slope I started my grid and worked my way down. I was getting close to the drop off and started to think I was going to have to go in and get wet to find this ring. got about 2 feet from the drop off and got the tone I was hoping to hear, took one scoop of sand and there it was, a beautiful pear shape diamond ring. Went up to where she was sitting waiting and showed her the ring, after the tears of joy and a few hugs and thank you I was on my way. Another great recovery and great feeling that comes with it.

Engagement Ring recovered in Point Pleasent

This recovery has been a long time waiting. Five weeks ago Martha and Johnny were enjoying the beach when Martha lost her ring on the slope by the waters edge. I was even on the same beach that day and they saw me detecting. She called me later that night and told me what happened, not wanting to take the chance of the ring getting washed out I went back to the beach that night to search for it. No luck that night and I went back down the following day after work. The water was rough and extra high that day and I didn’t have high hopes in finding  it that day. I searched for awhile and was getting ready to leave and the last target I found on my way off the beach was her ring. I texted her the good news but with her living out of state she didn’t know when she would be able to come back to get her ring. I told her not to worry it wasn’t going anywhere. Well today was the day she had the opportunity to come and get it. I met them at the beach where she lost it and it was a wonderful reuniting of her with  her ring.

Wedding ring recovered in Avon

Got a call while at work from Kathy, she was on the beach with family when Lirio  lost her wedding band in the sand where they were sitting. She took it off to put lotion on her kids and put it in her pocket, getting ready she took off her pants and shook them out forgetting the ring was in the pocket. Shook the ring right out of the pocket into the sand. Told them not to move from the spot where they were and I’d be down after work. Met her on the beach and after digging a few other targets I found the ring next to the towels laying on the sand. As soon as she saw the ring in my scoop tears were flowing and the biggest smile. Great feeling.

Recently married Chrissi and Sean were enjoying the beach when Sean’s ring slid off while brushing himself off. They tried themselves to find it but couldn’t, even with the help of others.

Chrissi called and told her father what had happened and he located me on Rings Finders. Told her I could be there in a half hour to stay in the area till I got there. Met them on the beach and they had the area already marked off and with that help I managed to find his ring in no time. Just the smiles are enough to make a recovery worth it. Another Great and Happy ending. Hope they have a wonderful marriage together.

Lost wedding band on beach..

Got a call from Pat and his wife that his wife lost her wedding band on a local beach after taking it off to put lotion on, placing it down and getting side tracked forgetting it was on the blanket. Just after leaving the beach she remembered the ring and it was already lost in the sand. This was the day before they called. I drove down to meet him and luck ally he was taking pictures that day and they gave me a better idea where to look. There were people on the beach so I had to walk through them hoping no one was sitting on it. After about 15 minutes there was one spot opened about 15 feet from where I was checking that was opened and sure enough there pops out the ring. A bunch of thumbs up from the people around and a big smile and a hand shake we were on our way.

Platinum wedding ring lost in yard

Contact: 1-908-489-2371

Was just leaving the beach i was detecting with my buddy Keith when I got a call from Louis. He was playing wiffle ball and his ring flew off throwing the ball.Told him we were leaving the beach and would stop by but would take about half hour to drive there. When we got there Louis pretty much knew the area the ring should be so Keith and I starting detecting. There were a good amount of targets in the yard, the grass was thick but it helped that the ring wasn’t buried but it was stepped on at one time making it stuck in the ground some, but after about 20 minutes out pops the ring. After a few high fives, and a lot of smiles, we were on our way home feeling good after a great recovery.

Was asked not to give out to much info on this recovery, got a call at work from a woman who asked if I could help find her ring on the beach. Without to much detail as per her request, she stopped at the beach after a night on the town and managed to loose her ring. Met her after work and we went to where she was, wasn’t to hard to figure where she was with only one patch of foot prints on the beach from the night before. Started searching the area and half way through got the tone i was looking for. After a BIG hug and a nice smile , ring was reunited with the hand it belongs on.

Wedding Set, Snow recovery at the Jersey Shore

from Neptune City (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-908-489-2371

Got a call from Andrew asking if I could help find his wife’s Kelly wedding set she lost in the snow while playing with her child. Told him I could be there the next morning. When I got the I was greeted by Kelly and she showed me the area she felt the rings come off when she brushed the snow off. There were multiple targets in the ground so I had to check them all but after a bit I came across the first ring and knew the second one wasn’t to far away. A few more swings of the detector and out comes the second ring. I’m glad I could reunite Kelly with her rings and just seeing that big smile that comes when I find it is all worth it. Another Happy recovery……
