Palo Alto Park - Lost Heirloom Platinum & Diamond Wedding Ring Found! - 800-214-8534


Great referral from my Bay Area detecting partner, Dave Millman.

Kara had been playing in Bok Park with her kids the day before. She had given her Grandmother’s wedding band to her dozing husband for safe keeping while playing in the sandbox and pushing her toddlers on the swings.

Leaving the park, they discovered that her ring was missing from her husband’s pocket! They searched and searched where they had been playing but came up empty handed. Panicking, she posted a note on the bulletin board at her office at Two fellow Google employees immediately referred her to

Within minutes, Dave returned her call, but due to family obligations, he was unable to help. It’s always smart to begin a search as soon as possible so Dave called me right away. I met Kara at Bok park in Palo Alto the next day.

As I began metal detecting under the swings, Kara had decided to “search her car one more time”. After I had been searching for about 10 minutes, Kara popped up beaming! She had found her ring in her car! I was happy too, as I shared her relief, in recovering her Grandmother’s beautiful platinum and diamond wedding ring.

I cannot take credit for recovering the lost platinum wedding ring, but, with her permission, I wanted to share this happy ending in our “Book of Smiles” at The Ring Finders. At the end of the day, the result was the same, another happy customer!

Another happy Ring Finder's client!

With extra time on my hands, I searched the rest of the park and came up with a ton of aluminum pull tabs, a tiny toe ring, a cool Chinese key chain and a few old coins. Overall, it made for a very satisfying day of detecting!

Recovered coins

41 coins recovered in 5 hours of searching. Nothing valuable, but great detecting practice.

    That happens more then people realize…I just was called out to a search and after asking 1001 questions and assured it was lost in their garden I raced home to get my equipment and as I was leaving I got the call that they found it in their house…Main thing is they found their cherished keepsake!
