Paul called explaining that he had lost his ring while pulling weeds in the yard. With the recent rains the grass had grown rapidly along with the weeds. As he threw a clump of weeds his custom ring that he had purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York City flew off of his finger into the tall grass. He began to strip the grass down to the ground in the area he thought the ring may have landed, but was not able to find it. Thinking it may have flown farther, and down a highly vegetated hillside, he sought more professional help. Paul found me on the Ring Finders web site and called, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to Paul’s house, he showed me the area where he was working, and the hand motion that caused the loss. I noticed that the grass had been stripped down to the dirt almost, so anything like his ring would be there in sight, but I ran my coil over the whole area nun the less. Finding nothing there, I began on the hillside that started on the edge of the small yard. I worked my way down the hillside slowly searching every inch of the ground; NOTHING! I looked at Paul asking if there was anything else that could have happened, and he assured me the loss occurred exactly as he explained, so I went back up to the original area. It was then I noticed the pile of grass that Paul had removed from the area of the loss, and began my search in the pile. After a few passes, I got the signal I was looking for, moved the grass around and there it was. I held the ring up, and Paul came running over. He was so surprised that it was in the pile he had set aside, but so very happy it had been found. I know that I made his day!

    I lost my ring while weeding in my yard. After searching for hours and hours finding nothing, I decided to take another route. I found Ring Finders and Steve after googling ‘metal detector rentals’. After reading a couple of the testimonials on the Ring Finders site, I decided to not try renting or buying a mediocre detector and leave it to the pros!
    I called Steve on a Sunday and he showed up the following day. He found my ring, something that I’ve had and worn for so long that it feels a part of me, and I am very grateful. Steve is an awesome and friendly professional. I highly recommend Steve Smith and the network of Ring Finders to help you find what you’ve lost. If this happens to me again, I know who to call!
