Jennifer called and said her husband, Patrick lost his wedding band in the water on a Hilton Head Island Beach. She said he saw it slip off and tried to grab it but the current and waves were just too much. They searched for the ring after the tide went out, even using a metal detector. No ring! The next morning Jennifer was there on the beach with other people searching with takes trying to maybe kick the ring up, which is a good idea, but still no ring. After searching for about 10 minutes I hit it on my second target. When I said that’s it, you could see Jennifer’s eyes light up. She was one happy young lady. She called Patrick at work immediately and told him about finding his ring. I could tell by talking to him on the phone that he was very happy. He said it was a rough night last night worried about the ring. I am so happy that I was able to help Jennifer and Patrick. I wish the best for the both of them.

  1. Stephen called and said his wife lost her engagement ring in the water the day before. They were vacationing from North Georgia. The ring was very sentimental, it was handed down through three generations to his wife, Chelsea. I searched for a few hours that afternoon, and into the darkness, and could not locate their ring. I did find two other lost rings, but not the one. I knew this was going to be a tough one to locate because of all the storms we have been having here. The surf was rough, and the rip currents were terrible. I posted the loss on our club website for help, and within minutes I got three replies. All three club members came down and helped with the search. Eddie Kimmer got a hit on the ring. This was a tough one and Eddie came through. The CEHHA is a great organization, with great people. Thanks Eddie for all your help. You made Stephen and Chelsea very happy, and we were able to get such a sentimental family heirloom back to the rightful owners. Teamwork!

Mike called and said he had lost his wedding band while playing with the kids in shallow water at the beach. His family and some other friends just started a week long vacation on the island. I drove over as soon as I could knowing the tide was almost low and was going to start coming in soon. After searching for nearly an hour I decided that maybe it was a little higher on the beach near the soft sand, and after looking for a few minutes I got a good hit. It was his ring. Mike told me that he grew up poor, and life had taught him to appreciate things more, and this ring meant a lot to him. He could buy another ring, but he wanted this ring back because it meant so much to him and his wife. He told me on the beach before we started looking that he felt bad all day about loosing it, and I told him well I think we are fixing to brighten up his day. Thankfully I did. Mike I hope you and family are having a great vacation and wishing ya’ll the best. Glad I could help.

David called and said his wife lost her engagement ring in waist deep water at the beach. I told him I could be there in a couple of hours. When I arrived the tide was still low but was coming in, so I knew I would have to move fast. The area was about to be covered again by water. With David’s help we narrowed the search area and within Five minutes the second target was the ring. About that time Jennifer came down to the beach and was so excited that I found her ring. I believe this was the quickest I’ve ever found one. David and Jennifer, I’m so glad I was able to help, and I wish you both much happiness in the future.

Lost Ring found on Daufuskie Island, S.C.

Katie called and said she lost her engagement ring in the water the previous day at Daufuskie Island Beach. The island is secluded, and only accessable by boat. I told her I would try to help her. The next ferry to the island was to leave at 1:00, and the last ferry coming back was at 5:30. With the tide coming in I knew we only had a short window to work with. I searched for about 30 minutes and found the ring. It was already about five inches deep. Katie, her husband, Jeremy, and friends, were a great help because they were thoughtful enough to look for a landmark where she had lost the ring. This ring was very sentimental to Jeremy and Katie. It has been in the family a long time, and had been handed down to her. I’m so happy that I was able to help them out. Such a great couple and now new friends. I hope to see them again. If you ever get a chance to go to Daufuskie Island, go. Beautiful place. I’m going back.

Trio Of Rings Found At Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Randi called and told me she lost her rings the day before in the water at H.H. I told her I would be right there, but when I got there, the tide was too high and still coming in. We set a time to meet the next day when the tide was right. When arriving the next day, I began to realize this may turn out to be a rather lengthy hunt. She wasn’t exactly sure where she was when the rings were lost. Randi was walking down the beach and they were pulling a cart full of belongings in about ankle deep water, when a wave crashed, the cart flipped over, with phone, rings, and other items falling into the water. After a couple of hours searching, I asked if she took any photos during the day. She did, and by going by the background buildings we were able to determine a smaller search area. I continued the search in a different area while Randi left to get us drinks. While she was gone, BAM! Without digging the signal, I signaled her husband, Brandon, over. Out popped their engagement ring at five inches deep. In the same hole one of her children’s birthstone rings. The other birthstone ring was about two feet away.
When Randi returned, we didn’t tell her that I found the rings. Brandon took her to an open spot on the crowded beach and dropped to one knee, proposed to Randi, and put the ring on her finger.
You see when Brandon and Randi got married, there was never a wedding or formal proposal. They just went to the Courthouse, and signed the papers. When Brandon dropped to one knee and proposed on that crowded beach, it was exciting because about two dozen people around knew what was going on, and you could hear cheers and applause all over. I am so happy I could help such a beautiful couple! Brandon and Randi, may your best days lay ahead, and best of luck for both of you. It was an exciting adventure that I’ll never forget.

I got a message from Kristi saying she lost her ring at Tybee Beach. Kristi and Andy were walking near the water and her ring slipped off in ankle deep water at low tide. The next day I was going to Virginia on a week long digging trip, and didn’t have time to go look for her ring. After returning from Virginia, the very next morning I went to Tybee to search for her ring, and found it in the surf. Messaged Kristi and Andy with the good news. They were excited and drove all the way from Ohio to Savannah Georgia to pick it up. Kristi is a school teacher in Ohio. Her students made thank you cards that she delivered to me in person. Those cards really mean a lot to me. I love this hobby and helping people when I can. Kristi and Andy are two beautiful people, and I’m glad I could help them out. I wish the best for both of them as a couple.

Dave called me on a Sunday to say he had lost his wedding band at the beach. He noticed it gone after applying sun screen before going in the water. I told him that it was a good thing that he lost it in the soft sand and not in the water, and there was a real good chance I could find it for him. I went the next day after work and the beach was so crowded that I had to hunt in between people, but sure enough it was there about three feet from a group of people. Thankful that no one was camped out on it, and so was Dave.

March 5, 2018.

I lost my gold and diamond engagement ring in our front flower bed while doing some cleaning up on Tuesday night. The ring has sentimental value because it contains 8 of my grandmother’s diamonds. My husband and I both searched for several days, but were unable to find it. I did an online search for “how to find a lost ring” and Ring Finders came up. I was thrilled to realize that Tom Perry is a Ring Finder in Savannah. I emailed him on Saturday evening and he responded almost immediately. He came out the next day, on a Sunday, and was able to find my ring under a bush and buried several inches deep in mulch within 30 minutes. He was prompt, personable, and professional. I HIGHLY recommend calling Tom if you have anything valuable that is lost. I honestly didn’t think that I would ever find it before Tom came and saved the day.

Thank you, Tom.
