Lost Gold Wedding Band Found in Car

Happy to have helped another ring get reunited with its owner. I use an endoscopic camera to get into tight places otherwise hard to search with the naked eye. But in this case the best call was just to call The Ring Finders and having a fresh set of eyes. I found this ring sitting right on the passenger seat. This is hands down the fastest recovery I have ever done.

Can you spot the ring?

White gold beauty

Smile so big you can see it through the mask!

Luckily, this smart couple found The Ring Finders and got us to the spot and we found the ring within 10 minutes using a metal detector.

Gold Ring Recovered from Brooklyn Bush!

Sentimental heirloom thought to have vanished into thin air found using my metal detector. Usually finding a lost item means scanning the ground. In this unique rescue the ring somehow flew off a work bench and into the bushes. The owner searched every square inch and should have been easy to spot if it had made it to the ground.

Never underestimate where a ring will end up. It was wedged in there and shaking the bush didn’t expose it. It was only using a metal detector that we found it!

Beautiful gold and Diamonds on a one of a kind heirloom ring.

Huge smiles you can see through any mask!

Another Lost Wedding Ring Recovered in Harlem

One of the common scenarios that The Ring Finders come across is “Ive lost some weight and my ring is too big so it slips off my finger easily”. This is was happened to Tim. While walking through the park, Tim flicked his wrist and he felt his ring fly off his finger. He searched the area but couldn’t find it. That was until he found the Ring Finders. I met Tim and he explained where he thought it had landed. Using my experience and a little bit of reactmeant, I determined the ring was actually  on the other side of the path and not where Tim thought it had landed. Tim was a bit hesitant to search that area but as soon as he walked over to the spot I pointed out, Tim found the ring laying on the ground.  I didn’t even get to use my machine to find it. This was a good result and a reminder that taking a step back and accessing the situation can be just as useful as a metal detector

The ring flung off the hand and flew from that tree to where I took this pic.

Always good to see the ring back in the hands of the it’s rightful owner.

Kay had only been married 7 days when she lost her engagement ring! This beautiful and expensive piece of art was what had helped her endure 2 years of a long distance relationship. The newly weds were completely at a loss as this held great emotional value. They were so worried about losing the ring, Kay had actually taken it off and put it in a pouch to keep it sage. She put it in her pock

et and somewhere between parking and going for coffee, it had fallen out of her pocket. Complicating the situation was that they had realized it was lost long after they had returned to Chicago. Luckily they found The Ring Finders and we sprung into action. Since this was a ring lost in an urban area, I had prepared all the fliers to put up in the area and was posting on the community boards. But we didn’t need to put them up.

It had been raining for the last week and it c


rossed my mind that perhaps the ring had gone into a puddle, obscuring it from site. The pouch had blended into the puddle but I used a hand held detector to drag through the water and I got a hit. I was correct! The ring was still there.
