Lost Ring in the snow Found in Detroit Michigan

  • from Detroit (Michigan, United States)

Sentimental Silver!

I’ve had an interesting and busy late fall in the Detroit area this year.
I received a call from the pictured young gentleman inquiring if I could find a lost ring in the snow. He is from Cali and was visiting a friend here and upon getting back to the friend’s place this beautiful silver ring slipped off his finger while walking up to the residence.
The ring was his mother’s who passed away a year ago and he was feeling overwhelmed about it being lost.
I set up the MXT and began the typical grid search in the area he felt most likely it was.
So as he went to run an errand I was left to search on my own and I dug up a piece of non ferrous junk that read as a ring but the sound was choppy from different directions, but I dug it up to get it out of my way.
A few more sweeps and a 1 cent 90’s read came thru loud and clear in about 5″ of snow.
He hadn’t returned yet so I went to warm up in the van with the ring.
When he returned I got out and as we walked to the area he kept asking did you find it? did you find it? and I was trying to keep a straight face as he reminded me of myself and the kids who are asking on road trips are we there yet ? are we there yet? So I said with a sad expression.. man I’ve been really bustin’ a move on finding your ring but…. as I shook his hand the ring transferred over to his and he about fell over with excitement clutching the ring close to his heart and smiling as he looked to the sky…..sensing his mothers happiness! and thanking me for making his Christmas memorable!

    Thank you Jon for finding my sentimental silver ring in the snow!

    I lost my ring, it flew off my hand and landed somewhere in a patch of snow. I googled ring finder Detroit and to my surprise Jon’s name came up. I thought why not call and see if he could help because the only way I’m going to find my ring in a couple feet of snow will be with a metal detector. He responded within 15 minutes. Very nice man, came over to where I was staying within the hour. Still didn’t know what to expect but was hoping for the best. Jon came and by the time I came back from my errand he found my ring that I had been searching all morning for. It was a very special ring to me and this incredible gentleman helped me reclaim a ring that belonged to my mother and when she passed I put it on. I cannot begin to thank Jon as well as let all of you know this is a real service and it is definitely a life saver if you are trying to find an item you really do not want to part with. I paid what I thought was appropriate and he concurred. Definitely grateful that he came so fast and was able to help me find something that continues to stay on my hand. Thanks again! He’s really great at what he does!!!
