Albert contacted me through the Ringfinders website and said he lost a very special ring in his yard.  He described the ring as being made from gold nuggets that were found in Cripple Creek, Colorado…his place of birth.  It was designed with an elk with mountains in the background and a diamond chip.  He had purchased the ring in Estes Park, Colorado, to wear as his wedding band.  As you can see by the picture, it is a beautifully crafted piece of jewelry.

Albert was preparing to mow his 2 1/2 acres and placed his two rings in his watch pocket.  When he finished mowing, he discovered one of the rings was missing and it had apparently fallen out of the pocket somewhere in his yard.  His first idea was to rent a metal detector…and after a short time of searching with no luck he realized he needed to return to the internet for more options.  That is when he contacted me and we agreed on a date and time for the search.

Because of the very large area to be searched, I asked a friend, Jason, to accompany me to assist in the search.  We started in the back yard which was the first place Albert mowed that day.  After about two hours of completing grid searches, Jason found the ring in the last section we were searching in the back yard.  We were happy to find it in the back yard because the front yard was almost twice the size.

Needless to say, Albert was very happy and excited to have his ring returned to him, which he thought he would never see again.  And, it was a true pleasure to meet Albert and his wife.

    Hi Lee and Jason, Thank you so very much for finding my fathers ring. The ring had a lot of sentimental value to him, he was deeply upset when he lost it. Your work touches the hearts of many people. This is a huge find, and this will be a story to share for a long time. Many many thanks!
