I received a call from Lindsey on Saturday. She proceeded to tell me she had lost her 14k morganite with diamonds ring in a pond and wondered if I could come and try and find it. I told her that I had to work until Monday. I told her I could be there first thing Tuesday morning. We set everything up and Tuesday morning I headed out.

I got there, got the story and went to work. I was told the ring was lost off the end of the dock on the right-hand side. I tried using a metal detector with a scoop, but the bottom was too mucky. I quickly jumped out and got my Nemo and handheld metal detector and after about 20 bullet casings, I get another signal and when I went to grab it in the dark murky water, I felt my finger go in the hole and I knew I had found Lindsey’s ring!!!

I popped up out of the water with the ring on my finger!! There was a small audience on the dock that couldn’t believe I had found it! I love seeing the smiles and the excitement on individuals faces when I return something so precious to someone.

This was my #11th gold ring (12th – 1 silver – overall) recovery/returned for the year!

Got a call a day after Mother’s Day.

This lady had lost her mothers ring on Mother’s Day while kayaking with her grandson.

She was enjoying the weather and spending time with her grandson when they suddenly hit some fast moving water and it took them into some downed tree branches. Shen she hit she flipped over and while trying to pop back up and ensure her grandson was safe, she felt this priceless family heirloom slip off into the fast moving water! She just knew it was gone forever. She turned to the internet in search for help. By doing so she found me, 2.5 hours away, and reached out in hopes that I could help her out.

It wasn’t until May 17th before we could connect and plan an attempt to recover this ring out of the fast moving water.

I got up and drove the 2.5 hour journey in hopes it would be a successful trip….

This is what happened… I get there at about 10:30 am, we walked the 400 yards to get to the rivers edge. There was a 10-15 foot embankment we had to gingerly ease down to the water. Once down then I had to walk up current in freezing cold 3 foot, fast moving water with my detector and a scoop while climbing over logs in the river against the current.

I finally get to the spot and quickly realized, I can’t use the scoop with all the gravel and current. I placed it into the downed tree and kept scanning. About 30 mins later I get a 14-15 VDI on the MX SPORT and I knew that was her ring, problem was I couldn’t get to it. It was under a down branch and the water was moving too fast.

I had to clean up the area and make a way to the spot, use goggles to peer in the water and hopefully see it laying there. BOOM, I could see it and was able to reach down and grab it!

I showed the lady and hooked it on my D-ring for safe keeping while we made it back to the bank to climb back up the 10-15 foot embankment. Once up top we were able to cheer and celebrate the successful recovery!

Went out for another ring recovery today after work. I didn’t find this ladies deceased mom’s gold ring, (they weren’t 100% sure it was lost in the yard) lost for about 15 years. The yard wasn’t that big. I dug EVERYTHING from VDI 40-90.

I got a sold 90 and decided to dig it. It sounded too good to pass up. I saw shinny and round! It was a thick silver ring! I immediately took it up to her and showed her. She thinks it might be her daughters ring.

This is #11 ring recovery this year!

Got a call last night from this sweet lady. She had lost the ONLY thing she had from her mother, while doing yard work. Why is it the ONLY item? Because her dear mother had passed away when she was just 5. 😞
Story continues and gets more interesting….. Many YEARS later. Her father passed away at the age of 90 years old. He left a safety deposit box and this ring was inside. It was the first time she had seen it or even knew of its existence. Needless to say she was heartbroken! She looked for it for 2 days, but couldn’t find it. She finally took to the internet to search for help, found my page and reached out! I told her I’d be there first thing this morning. Drove the hour long trip, get there, got my gear and found this priceless heirloom in just 5 mins! She was so thrilled and couldn’t believe I found it so fast! She was full of joy to have her moms signet ring back!
I love putting a smile back on people’s faces after they’ve lost something so dear to them and irreplaceable!

I received a call from an upset young lady saying she had lost her 10/14k rose gold wedding ring in her front yard or across the street from her front yard. It had been missing for 2 days. Her and her husband tried finding it but were unsuccessful. I told her I would head down there right after work and try and find it for her.
I get there and get the details of about where she lost it and go to work….. It took about 10 mins or less and it was found and back on her finger, where it belonged!
Love this hobby and making someone smile again after finding something they lost that’s so priceless.

Not the prettiest recovery I have ever done, but at least the sentimental aspect and symbolic meaning behind a wedding ring is still there, recovered and given back to the owner. This flattened platinum and rose gold wedding ring will need a little TLC, but I think it can be repaired.

Got a text message about a gentleman who lost his ring a week and a half ago while sledding with the family. He took his glove off once and that must have been the time when he lost it. When he texted me, he said it was either at his house in his front yard or at the hill where they were sledding. I started off at his house, figured that would’ve been the fastest and the easiest, since the yard was small and grass wasn’t that thick. I scanned it in no time and didn’t find his ring.

I drove down the road to the sled slope and began detecting. After about 15 mins, I realized it wasn’t there and started to walk away when I noticed a shiny bar-like item in the road. I walked over and picked it up and realized, “IT WAS THE RING!!!” flattened, but it was the ring!

I texted the gentleman, sent photos and told him I found it, but he wasn’t going to like how it looks! He responded with “Awww, THAT DOES SUCK, BUT THAT’S ALRIGHT, I’LL KEEP IT AS A MEMENTO”

LOST NC STATE CLASS RING IN RALEIGH, NC………FOUND!!!!

After finding my previous ring that was lost for 15 years, a friend of that person’s saw his post and posted that they wanted me to try to find his. I reached out to them and found out his lost ring was lost for over 15 years. This time it was a NC STATE college class ring. Ed lost it while mowing and throwing limbs into the wooded areas. It took me four hours to find it after searching on the opposite side most of the morning. I finally got a VDI 68 range that wasn’t a piece of aluminum or a bullet casing. I had finally found it after an exhausting four hours of intense searching and dedication of moving leaves and limbs in one area. I was driven, persistent and determined to find his ring. He was 100% certain it was out there. I couldn’t give up, I just had to keep swinging, until it was found.

Today was another happy story! I got a text message from Tim, who saw a post on a local buy sale trade site. He told me he had lost his ring 15 years ago while doing yard work. He normally puts it in his little pocket of his jeans when he does yard work. As he put it in his pocket, he either pulled it back out as his fingers slid out or it missed the pocket all together and just fell to the ground.

We set up a date/time for me to try to find his ring. I met up with him at his house and he gave me the lay of the land. He went over his movements from 15 years ago and gave me a general area of where he lost it. After about 35 mins, I get a VDI 55 on my Garrett AT MAX. I popped the plug and BOOM I saw round, gold & shiny!! Pulled it out, cleaned it off and drove it to where Tim worked. He was supper happy and excited, as he didn’t expect me to find it!

Found my 3rd gold ring today as I received another call to find a lost ring in the snow!
Funny story here. Her husband thought this was a “SILVER” ring! Turns out it was actually 14k gold! I spent the first few mins looking for a silver ring. When she called her husband to check the car she said she had the other ring in her pocket. I asked to see that ring, scanned it over my coil and I told her it’s gold not silver. Then I made the adjustments and BOOM VDI 46 and her ring was found!
She said, she will NEVER let her husband live this one down for not know what metal he bought her. lol!!!
So glad I could help her find her ring again! I love what I do!
