Lost Ring Water Mill Backyard

from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-516-526-4888

Received an email from a young lady saying her ring came off while on her backyard patio. She and her husband search the area with no results. She asked if I could come out to help find her ring.  Set up an appointment the next next day to help find her ring.  The area was small but covered with lots of small plants and bushes. After covering the area that they though the ring may have gone to, I increased the area by a few feet and I found the ring hiding under a small plant.  I had a very happy couple thanking me with much gratitude.

I received and email about a lost ring in Sag Harbor.  I called and was told it was and engagement ring and wedding band.  I agreed to look and ask when I could meet to see the area.  The owner said she was in Manhattan and could not get out ill the weekend.  I ask if she could give me directions and  some landmarks so I could go out to find the rings.  I received the information and headed out.  When I got to the place there was a sign NO METAL DETECTING.  I found the person in charge and after showing him the information I had I got permission to search for the rings.  It took a while but I was successful.

Day after Christmas I get a call from a very upset young lady who said she lost her ring at the beach on Christmas, playing football with a few friends. I told her that I would meet her at  noon at the beach.  When I got there She showed me about where she lost the ring. I started a grid search. After about a half hour my good old trusty “white’s” detector made a few beeps and under the search coil I push a few rock aside and there is a beautiful white gold ring. The owner was so happy she had tears of joy running down her face. The look that I see is pure happiness.IMG_0389IMG_0388

I received a call from a man that lost his platinum wedding ring at the beach on Shelter Island. He put it in the pocket of his beach chair and when he looked for it, it was not there. After searching for it and not finding the ring he turned to The Ring Finders where he got my name and called.  I agreed to meet him in Greenport by the ferry line.  We travel over to Shelter Island, nice ride. We went to the beach that he lost the ring and he showed me the area that he thought it went missing.  There was a couple sitting in the area and they offer to move when I explained that I was looking for a lost wedding band.  I said let me look around you first.  I started a grid search, after about 15 minutes I got this strong sound and good number on the detector scale.  I took a scope of sand and BINGO there it was! I turn to the owner and showed it to him, when he saw it a very big smile came to his face. I suggested that he call his wife and she was also very happy. Another day of sun and fun.IMG_0227IMG_0226

Contact: 1-516-526-4888

I received a call on Sunday night a wedding ring was lost at the beach in Amagansett. The couple had only been married a few months and the ring very important to the husband.  I meet them at their house and we walked over to the beach. They showed me the area that they lost the ring. The wife pointed in one direction and the husband in the other, so I started in the middle and low and behold that’s where it was buried in the sand.  Needless to say both were extremely happy to see the ring again. The trip was worth the smiles on their faces. IMG_0104 IMG_0102

Monday afternoon running around shopping as Tuesday was forcast for MORE snow.  It was mid afternoon and I get a call from a woman who lost her engagment ring in the snow. I still had my detector in the car from the day before, so I asked where she lost it. She tells me in Ronkonkoma by the High School.  Well I was only 20 minutes away and I told her I would be there shortly.  When I get there it is her son’s house and that she was getting into the car and the ring came off.  I take out my equipment and ask about the ring. It was white gold and many years old with some nice stones.  I started at the edge of the driveway and there was nothing but noise from the metal in the cement. I did some adjustments on the detector and started all over.  The ring was about two feet from where she said it mind be.  I took it out of the snow and she came over and gave me one big hug and a hugh smile on her face.  After talking for a short time I find she lives about 20 minutes from me in Yaphank. IMG_0089 IMG_0090
