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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

On May 19, 2017, I lost my handmade, personally-designed wedding ring one day before my 38th wedding anniversary. It was not loose on my hand, but somehow came off when I was knocked over at high tide by a wave at Hilton Head Resort. To day I was devastated is an understatement. Immediately we sent out a family member to purchase a metal detector. My daughter went online and discovered The Ringfinders and identified Tom Perry of Savannah, GA., as the member closest to us. We put in a phone call, and frankly we were not expecting much. However, much to our surprise, he quickly called back and agreed to make the one hour trek (in busy traffic on Friday evening) to our resort to help us out. Fortunately, Tom must be a patient man because there was a brake down in arrangements, and he was mistakenly left waiting outside of the gate and not given permission to enter. I will forever be indebted to him that he didn’t just leave. By the time he got onto the beach, it was low tide, and we had already gone over the area we believed it could be – we were not at all sure – with our own metal detector. There was not a lot of daylight remaining. I was very doubtful that we would be able to overcome the great odds that were against us. However, Tom was careful and methodical. Right as it was getting dark, he located my ring, buried in three inches of sand, and in an area that had already been swept by our metal detector and raked. He told us that his payment was whatever we felt his services were worth. Needless to say, we gave him all the cash we had, as the ring was irreplaceable and he managed against all odds to locate it for us. I cannot recommend Tom Perry and The Ringfinders highly enough! I will be eternally grateful to him and appreciative of the professionalism he evidenced as he worked to reunite me with my most precious possession. I am so thrilled that I didn’t give in to the notion of “what’s the use, you’ll never find a ring lost in the ocean.” and contacted The Ringfinders.

Jeff in the photo. There’s not much of a story on this one. The couple was staying in Savannah and visited Tybee for the day. Jeff took me to where he thought she had lost the ring, and after finding a penny I hit the ring. It took about five minutes. 🙂
Robb is my son in law. You found my little girl’s rings today on Tybee. I am very grateful for you. Thank you so much. Her heart was broken last night. We spent a few hours trying to find them. Today was a good day.
