Rings Lost in Snow Found – Waterford CT

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

After Winter Storm Juno finished dumping snow on Southeastern Connecticut, I received a call from a couple who lost their engagement ring and wedding band in their backyard. First, they tried renting a metal detector from a local sporting goods store, no luck. Not giving up, they spent a couple of days using metal detectors purchased from Amazon, still no luck.

Upon my arrival, we went into the back yard where I found shoveled pathways and remaining footprints from the previous searching.  The Search was difficult due to the foot of frozen, uneven snow. About 30 minutes into the search, I heard the unmistakable “ring” signal. My XP Deus told me it was less than 8 inches deep, so I knew it wasn’t another signal bleeding through the snow from underground. Waving over the husband, we dug through the snow and recovered a beautiful 14k white gold wedding band.

Unfortunately, the engagement ring wasn’t right next to the wedding band. After covering the same area three different times, and another thirty minutes later, I caught a weak signal about 10 feet away from where I found the first lost ring. After brushing away a couple of inches of snow, the signal strengthened. A little more careful digging and diamond poked through the snow. We found the second ring lost in the snow!

Metal Detecting East Matunuck State Beach for Lost Engagement Ring & Wedding Band

Found Platinum Engagement Ring with Diamond & Platinum Wedding Band with Multiple Diamonds

Found Platinum Engagement Ring with Diamond & Platinum Wedding Band with Multiple Diamonds

After a day at the beach, I got home to realize I had lost my engagement and wedding ring. I rushed back the next morning in hopes of finding someone metal detecting and eventually found one in the area to rent.  I searched for 4 hours to no avail.  My husband and I went back a few days later, renting the metal detector and searching for 4-5 hours again.  And again, coming home empty-handed.

Losing jewelry is a horrible feeling, and that feeling is amplified by 1000 when they are wedding rings. No amount of insurance money would bring back MY rings.

I had seen advertisements online for the Ring Finders, but I was hesitant to contact them. I had my doubts about identifying the location of my ring for them to find.  But after two unsuccessful trips, I figured there was a 50/50 shot they would return them, and I took the odds.

I emailed Keith around 6:30 on a Saturday night and had an email back within an hour that he would be calling in the morning. He called as promised and agreed to meet my husband back at the beach in around an hour.  My hesitation was beginning to ease!

We showed him the area where we believed the rings had been lost – the place we searched over and over with our rented detector – and he found them in less than 20 minutes.

The successful result speaks for itself! We could not be happier with our decision to reach out to Keith and are beyond thrilled that he could locate the lost rings.  In talking with Keith afterward, I found out that he does survival and search/rescue training for his career. He certainly takes that professionalism and determination over into this field.  I highly recommend Keith searching for anything of significant importance.

Metal Detecting Trumbull Connecticut for Lost Wedding Band

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)
Found White Gold Wedding Band

Found White Gold Wedding Band

I received a call a couple of days ago to locate a men’s white gold wedding band. The gentleman described to me how he lost the ring in his back yard years earlier. During the call, I could hear the sense of urgency in his voice and knew I had to find it. We decided on a day and time to meet and started retracing his steps. Just hours after I uncovered the ring and returned it to its owner, I received this testimonial:

A white gold wedding band inscribed with personal tributes to our love. That ring means so much to me. I kissed it every day. I would sometimes ask my wife to kiss it to “seal it.” I lost a lot of weight to get healthy when my first son was born. My ring no longer fit, and I used to remove my ring when I went swimming or exercised. I would take it off if I sat in the sun as I was afraid I might sweat and it would slip. One afternoon, I was sitting in my backyard enjoying the day. I did what I always did: Put my book, water-bottle and my ring under my chair.

I got on the phone and paced a bit around the yard. I went up to the deck and around and down the stairs. I also had moved my chair a few times to face the sun. After an hour had passed, I decided to go inside. My ring had disappeared.

I was mortified. I got on my hands and knees and looked for hours. I took a rake and combed every piece of the area in which I had placed my chair. When my son came home, I had him looking with me. My ring was lost.

I kept thinking of renting a metal detector but put that off. I read some articles, and it seemed a difficult prospect for me to pull off. Then I resigned myself to it being lost. I guess I had not entirely lost hope. Two-plus years later, I happened upon Mr. Wille and theringfinders.com. I called Mr. Wille up, and he was so very kind and patient. I explained the situation, what the ring meant to me. Mr. Wille understood and told me what he would do to find it. I must say that I was taken aback by his level of confidence. There was no “if” or “but” in his words or even in his voice. He was going to find this ring. I will also add here that all he asked for was money to cover gas. This was not possible, but I figured I would try it.

We set up a date within days of my call, and Mr. Wille arrived exactly when he said he would. I walked him around my yard and through all my paces from that day and then returned to work at 9 AM.

I was in a meeting with a colleague when a text came through at 11:20.

It was a picture Mr. Wille sent to me of my ring. He had positioned it gloriously atop a rock, and it still glistened in the late morning sun. I swear it took everything I had to not cry at that moment (later, I cried after the meeting ended).

I called Mr. Wille and sped home soon thereafter, where he showed me the ring. I was at a total loss for words. He showed me the spot where he found it. It was not far from where I had been sitting, but it was 2-3 inches underground.

He also shared some old coins and various “treasures” he had found in my yard. I must say, I was too stunned to hear and too blissed-out to listen. I really could not believe that the ring had been returned to me.

Mr. Wille would not accept much in terms of a reward, but I plan on sending him more via mail anyway and hope he will be hard-pressed to send it back. His genuine compassion, paired with his obvious love for what he does, is astounding. I work in a field where empathy, compassion, and kindness are highly valued. It is nice to know that people like Mr. Wille are out there compassionately, gently reuniting people with truly priceless things. My ring, in terms of monetary value, not much. My ring, in terms of what it means to my heart, my soul to see it again – I could never have enough money to pay for that. Thank you, Mr. Wille.

Namaste~
