Lost ring NAPLES , FL — Found in Beach Sand and Returned!!!

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

 

THIS IS OUR 60th DOCUMENTED SUCCESSFUL LOST RING RECOVERY!!!

Evan (pictured) lost his wedding band in the loose sand while enjoying a sunny afternoon at Lowdermilk Park in Naples.  While applying sunscreen, Evan’s wedding band flew off sinking into the sand.  After attempting to look for the ring themselves with no success, Evan’s wife Abbey found our contact information under Naples Ring Finder and gave us a call.

Arrangements were made to meet at the Naples beach to find the lost ring.  After just a few minutes of searching, my wife found the ring and it was back on Evan’s finger where it belongs!

My wife and I have several years metal detecting experience between us. (I purchased my first metal detector in 1993).  That—coupled with top of the line metal detectors—makes for a great professional combination and greatly increases the odds that your lost ring or other precious item will be found.

If you have lost a ring or other precious metal item in water or on land, feel free to give us a call or text.

Lost gold wedding ring Carpinteria found

from Ventura (California, United States)
Contact: 1-805-290-5009

Today started out busy as I was almost getting on the freeway to head home from a ring recovery and I got a phone call from Stuart about his lost white gold wedding band that he had lost yesterday in the sand at Rincon Beach in Carpinteria. It was a beautiful sunny day for a birthday party and dad was playing in the sand with the kids digging and moving sand and low and behold he discovered his ring was missing! Stuart found a metal detector and proceeded to try and recover his ring but to the untrained ear a random metal detector sounds like R2D2 so he found me and gave me a call.

We got down to the beach and he showed me the grid he had been working and I began to work outside it to kind of work my way in. I got a great tone but it was deep and it took three scoops to get it out and we had a bingo! Gold ring in the scoop!

Stuart was pretty pumped for sure and was amazed how different my experience with a metal detector than his was. If you’ve lost a ring, pendant or even a buried stash of cash in the yard don’t hesitate to call me at 805-290-5009 so we can get your stuff back!

Auckland New Zealand $250,000 lost ring found in garden

from Auckland (New Zealand)
Contact: 0275812660

Wednesday afternoon I was contacted by a lady who had been pruning her hedge when she felt her ring slip off her finger. She spent some time shaking the bushes and reaching around the roots. After realizing that she probably needed a metal detector, she decided to call me. This morning I went to an address in Auckland New Zealand where I met the lady, she showed me the area in which she had been working to get me started. I started by edging along the footpath because the garden was behind a boundary metre high wall, after making my way to a point in the garden where my detector was humming a gold signal. I got into the foliage with my pinpointer metal detector, soon I heard it sing and then I saw a row of diamonds.

She was so relieved to get her ring back on her finger and I was even more relieved to find it after she told me how much it cost!

Ring Found in Springfield, La

from Baton Rouge (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-225-328-5300

I received a text from Sal on a Tuesday afternoon asking for help with finding his girlfriend’s lost ring (ironically I was metal detecting at the time). He said the ring was lost around two months ago and he’d gotten a cheap metal detector and made some attempts to locate it with no luck. He lived in Springfield, Louisiana which is about 30 miles east of Baton Rouge and a nightmare to get to with traffic, but within a few days I had found time to get over there to see if I could help.

The ring was lost in a wooded area across the street from his home that was covered in a layer of thick leaves, so I knew I had my work cut out for me. Once I’d fired up the detector (I just pressed the power button, but fired up sounds more impressive) and started swinging the coil over the area I realized just how much my work was in fact cut out for me… the area, which was along a roadside was littered with years of garbage from the nearby roadway and there were signals everywhere.This is most often the case near roads.

At this point all I could do was roll up my sleeves and get to work (figuratively, I was wearing short sleeves),  so I began removing targets as I swung over them. I had already inquired about the type of metal the ring was, so I had a pretty good idea what type of signal I was looking for, but with all the aluminum cans under the leaf cover I was afraid the ring signal would be masked by trash signals. As I continued removing trash I came across a good signal in the range I predicted the ring would be in which turned out to be a broken mirror (for those that don’t know, mirrors often have a metal backing for the reflection portion).             That’s right ! There were shards of mirror everywhere which gave signals that were in the ring range and were just waiting to slice an unsuspecting detectorist open. It just doesn’t get much more difficult than that, or does it ? …….

It’s when I began removing shards of mirror that I realized that growing up through the leaves, under the shade of these thick Oak trees thrived a rather large patch of Poison Ivy……

  2. Trash (check)
  3. Broken glass (check)
  4. Poison Ivy (check)

Bring it on! — I kept my head down and kept searching. This was someone’s lost ring, prized possession, an item that most likely carried some sentimental significance and I wasn’t leaving until I could say I’d given it my all. It wasn’t long and my perseverance had paid off. I stood up, took a step back and let out a disheartening sigh as I scanned the area for the thousandth time and thought “I’m just going to walk farther from where I’ve been searching and outside the suspected area and give it a try”, and sure enough within seconds the detector gave a signal in prime ring range — there it was, it had been a few steps outside my search area the whole time. Always the last place you look.

Buried silver coin stash found!

from Ventura (California, United States)
Contact: 1-805-290-5009

I got a call from Richard explaining that his great grandpa had buried a stash of silver coins on his property 60-70 years ago and that prior to his recent passing had shared this with his daughter, Richards grandmother. Who wouldn’t want to hunt for buried treasure? We arranged a day for me to come out and me and grandma walked the property and I got set up to begin the hunt. I didn’t know how the coins were buried in terms of containers so I quickly realized I was going to be looking for good solid tones regardless of their ID#.

About 45 minutes into the hunt I got a solid 16 tone on my Minelab equinox and even though it didn’t sound like silver I decided to dig. About 10 inches down I hit the pipe and proceeded to pull it out of the ground. It was approx. 36″ long and big enough to fit coins as large as silver dollars. I shook it, heard something hitting the sides and knew I’d found something. Unfortunately the pipe was so rusted that we had to cut the pipe and when we did we were amazed by what we found. Hundreds of old silver coins just poured out. We had found grandpa’s stash!

 

 

 

 

 

Lost Platinum & Diamond Engagement Ring at Pililaau Army Beach…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Reshell who lives in Kaimuki on Oahu. While enjoying some R & R at the Pililaau Army Recreation Center Beach her Engagement ring fell out of the beach chair’s puka storage and fell into the sand. Her Wedding Band had fallen too and she was able to spot it but the Engagement ring was gone. Being on the opposite side of the island from my home and rush hour traffic fast approaching Google maps said it was going to be 1 and a half hours to get there. Reshell was staying at the Center so I told her I would start making my way over. After a little over an hour I decided to call her to be watching for my car. Reshell’s went to voicemail. I tried several times with no luck. When I arrived I talked to the Military gate guard and they knew right where to find Reshell on the beach. It was at that time she noticed her phone was in silent mode and called me to apologize and to meet on the beach. We got to the beach area which was very small because of the shore break and thankfully the beach was sterile. After a quick hunt the ring wasn’t where the other ring had fallen as Reshell had the sense to mark that spot with a rock. I decided to start at the rock wall and work down to the wet sand. As I approached the rock wall I got a loud 6/7 tone on the Nox and one gentle scoop and there in the scoop was Reshell’s beautiful ring. Reshell thought maybe when she leaned the beach chair against the wall is when the engagement ring fell out. In any case the ring is back on her finger and she was tremendously relieved. Aloha to Reshell!
