So I got a call from Marie-Andrée that she had been at the beach with her family and her child reached up to grab her hand and pulled her wedding ring off of her finger. They searched for over an hour in the exact spot with no luck, then found me through The Ring Finders site. I told them I could come immediately and to try to secure or maintain the site. She said they had to leave to take their child home, but her husband would return and show me where it was lost. I headed home to gear up and arrived an hour later, her husband and his friend arrived about 10 min later and showed me the area. We carried my gear down to the beach and I went into the water to do a quick search as he was very sure of the exact location using guard tower,buoys, and water height as references. Initial search found no targets, so I set up my markers and gridded off a 20′ X 20′ area, searched NS/SN then EW/WE, only turning up a loonie and some sharp garbage/junk. He was very sure of the area so I switched to all metal mode on my Garrett AT Pro International and swept the area again, finding only one rusty snap dome. then expanded my search outside the original grid going around the square. On my second layer out my headphones screamed and I knew what it was. Using my scoop I took a bite out of the bottom and the signal was gone on recheck, look in the scoop and I see a brilliant flash of circle. I called them over and told them I needed another piece of equipment, if they could mark the spot while I retrieved it. I grabbed my GoPro made the attached video. They were very excited as were the people around, who had been observing the search. I packed up and after some photos, he headed home to return the ring to his wife’s finger where it belonged. She sent me a nice thank you and photo of the ring on her finger. Thanks for calling on me and allowing me to reunite you with your lost ring and add a very cool chapter to its story.

I Lost My Ring, How To Find A Lost Ring

If you are reading this, then your solution is at hand.

Most people, after losing something very precious, valuable or important to them, will Google the two title phrases. Then some think about renting a metal detector and trying to find it themselves. While that is an option, it is not the best or most efficient one.  Let me explain with a little story.

34 years ago, when I bought my first metal detector, I planned to find treasure and get rich. So out to my backyard I went and swung that detector from morning until bed. After 2 days of searching every square inch, and digging every beep, I’d found hundreds of metal bits, and $1.32.

Later in the summer, a family friend was over for dinner and, excited to see my detector in action, threw his chunky college ring into the grass. I attacked the area, proud to show off its capabilities. After 2 hrs of me searching, he took pity on me, walked over and picked his ring out of the very area I’d been repeatedly searching over.

34 yrs later, I’ve upgraded and know my equipment, and how to search properly…and I rarely miss the rings/targets anymore. I have many stories of happy people who are looking, once again, at the very item they thought was lost forever. All because they called or contacted me and let me do what I do best.

Let me help you be reunited with your lost item.

Thanks,  Steve
