Lost Ring Saddle Brook NJ… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from Joe and his wife looking for help finding his wedding ring which he lost while fishing in the Saddle River.  After discussing the location and depth of the river where the ring was lost, we agreed to meet the next morning at the river.  Joe was awesome!  He knew almost exactly where he had lost the ring and was able to point me right to the location.  After a short search, I was able to find the ring under a small layer of silt.  I was incredibly happy to be able to return the ring!  I know the ring meant a lot to Joe, so it really meant a lot to me to be able to help!

Lost Ring Jersey City NJ…. Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a text from Stuart saying he had lost his wedding ring while gardening on Saturday.  He said he knew it was in the bags of leaves and grass that had been cleaned up.  We set up a time for early the next day for me to come out and search the bags for the ring.  I arrived the next day and met Stuart.  He was awesome, out of the probably 15 bags of leaves he was able to tell me the three most likely candidates for the missing ring.  And, the ring was in the second bag.  He made my job easy, and I was very happy to be able to help Stuart find his ring! 🙂  

Lost ring Warwick NY… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a very upset woman who had lost her wedding ring in the parking lot of the Ford dealership in Warwick, NY.  She said that it was in a grassy area not too close to the cars, so I hoped that on arrival I would be able to detect the area.  When I arrived, I was happy to see that there were no cars in the area where the ring was lost, and I was able to search the area with no problems!  After a quick 5 minute search, I got lucky and found the ring.  It really helped that the woman had an excellent idea of where the ring had been lost which really narrowed down the search area!  It’s always an amazing feeling to return a ring to the owner!  So happy I could help out!

Lost ring Denville NJ… Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I received a late-night email from James asking for my help locating his wedding ring.  He said that he had been raking and bagging leaves earlier in the day and the ring had come off his finger.  We made plans to meet the next day and search for the ring.  When I arrived he had about 12-14 bags of leaves ready to scan with my detector.  We went bag by bag and got lucky around bag number six!  It was the second metal object that we pulled out of that bag and probably the 4th or 5th metal object that was in the leaf bags overall!  I was amped to be able to help return the ring to him!

Lost iPhone West Orange…. Found

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I saw a post in my local community group about a young girl that had lost her iPhone while sledding.  I responded to the post that I would be happy to help find the phone and left my ringfinder.com link.  I was excited when I received a call from Anusha, the girl’s mom, requesting my help.  She said they had used the find my phone feature to locate the phone within about a 10-foot radius and offered for me to follow them to the location as there were several sledding hills on the road.  I followed them to the site and they showed me approximately where the phone was pinpointed with the find my phone feature.  I spent about 90 minutes working my way down the hill when I found the phone completely covered by snow!  I was happy to reunite iPhone and owner!

Got a call from a young man about a ring that had been lost in the snow while filming a music video.  He had already bought a metal detector from Wal-mart and tried to locate the ring with no sucess.  He told me was there was footage of the ring on his finger and footage of the ring off his finger, so I had an excellent idea of the location of the ring and knew I could help out.  When I got there, he  showed me right to the area and within ten minuntes I was able to locate the ring under the snow and return it!  I love the happy endings when I can return rings to their owners!

Hi! My name is Kati Schmidt and I’ve been metal detecting since 2018, finding coins, jewelry, and all sorts of other metal things.  If you have lost something made of or containing metal, I’ll be happy to help you recover it.  I’ve searched parks, yards, beaches, and other places.  I work on a reward basis, if I find the item, you can give me a reward that you are both comfortable with and can afford.  I do have a call-out fee of $25, to cover my travel expenses for local areas.  If you are further away, we can negotiate an appropriate call out fee.  My detecting is mostly in New Jersey, but I’m up to going elsewhere if required.  Give me a call (973) 970-3059, shoot me a text, or send me an email kati.schmidt@theringfinders.com and we can begin the recovery!
