I got a call from Nick the morning of the 4th of July asking for help in finding his wedding ring that he had lost the day before at the beach. Well I let him know about the County’s meticulous cleaning procedures, but told him I would meet him later in the evening to do the search because I knew the beach would be filling up in the morning and during the day, and someone might park on top of the area which could hinder a thorough search. I figured if we got there after everyone left we would have the whole area to ourselves, and I could grid to my heart’s desire.

I met Nick at the arranged spot at 10:00 PM, and he took me out to the area he had been in the day before. Right away my expectations were buoyed as looked around and realized the machines had not gone through that morning. I asked Nick to show me the boundaries of  the area they had been in, and began my search. This beach is extremely clean of metal trash, and I got very few signals. It is like a desert of metal. I got a key, a penny, and a piece of foil, but I maintained my grid, pass after pass; silence. Then after about 30 minutes a good solid sound in the head phones. I dug, and a nice silver colored platinum ring was in my scoop. I had my back to Nick at the time so I looked inside and saw there was an inscription with 2 initials with a heart between them, one of the initials being an “N”, I knew this was the ring. I turned and walked over to him with the ring in my hand. I then asked inquisitively if there were any engravings in his ring. He said there were, and told me what they were. As he was explaining to me I held out his ring in the light of my headlight, and when he saw it he was in total disbelief. He told me he had only been married for 2 months; whew! What a great ending to a great day! My bad on his picture.

Nick sent the following testimonial:

To whom It may concern, I write my client testimonial for Steve Smith of Ring Finders, who found my lost wedding ring on July 4th 2022….

I was out celebrating the Independence day weekend with my new wife of two months and friends on the beach. A beautiful day was had enjoying the wonderful weather. Only once sat at home and about to start a film did I realise my wedding band had come off my fingers. A small breakdown and copious amounts of anxiety ensued and the following morning, frantic messages to social media were posted. A kindly neighbour posted about Steve the ring finder and I called him up. Despite it being July the 4th he kindly agreed to meet that evening due to time being of the essence.
We met at 10 pm once all the fireworks had died down, and Steve got to work. He was meticulous and methodical and to my utter amazement, he found my band. Need to mention again this was all in the PITCH DARK. I was amazed, and I honestly can speak highly enough of both Steve and his work. He’s a true gentleman and very skilled. I sit here typing this testimonial with not only my ring on my finger, but a smile on my face. Steve, you legend.
– There you go!
Thanks again and I hope you have a great week
