Lost wedding ring set in Toms River NJ Found by: Matt St.Germain

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

A few days ago I was contacted by Tom, While he and his wife Sharon were out in the backyard doing some yard work Sharon’s Soldered ring set slipped off her finger into the grass. They searched for it for a few days with a metal detector they bought at a local store. Despite hearing different signals and fanning the grass on hands and knees they were not able to locate it. A friend of theirs did a google search and found my RingFinders profile so they decided to give me a call for some help. I went there a few days later and once they showed me the general area where they thought it might be I got to work. Within about 10 mins I found it deeply embedded in thick grass. They were so happy and relieved I had found it! This ring has a lot of history as they have been married for 30 years! They met and began dating at the age of 19! Amazing! Over the years the ring that began as an engagement ring was added onto with a wedding band, Baguettes, And an anniversary ring. A jeweler friend of theirs also re-did all of the etching on both of their rings for them! What a great story! I’m so happy I was able to help them reclaim it!

I received a message on my Facebook page late last night from Sheyla who lost her wedding band and engagement ring on the beach in Brigantine, NJ earlier in the day.  I spoke to her shortly after I received her message and we made plans to meet early this morning to look for the rings. After we met and talked about where the rings might be, I started my search and within 20 minutes the rings were found. It just so happens that today is their 8th wedding anniversary, so it was all the more special when it was recovered!

Lost Gold Chain in Columbia River – Found & Returned by The Ring Finders

from Portland (Oregon, United States)
Contact: 1-509-365-8010

Jose was swimming in the Columbia River near Hood River, Oregon when he noticed his chain was missing; the chain he received from his Mother and worn every day since. Frantically he searched the water where he thought it came off but a successful visual search is nearly impossible given a large body of water and sandy bottom. A couple days later he found The Ring Finders and my info. I explained that chains are an unusually tough target to detect but top-of-the-line equipment and the large clasp may work to our advantage. The sand spit they were on is roughly 1/4 mile long and their exact location was foggy. My first search lasted 3 hrs with no recovery. I returned the following day, by myself, and referenced a picture he sent me. According to the references on the picture we were off by 40yds on our first search. My 2nd & 3rd searches lasted about 2.5hrs each with the same results. On my 4th search, 2 weeks after the loss, the river had dropped 1.5′ which allowed me to rig up my XP Deus with HF Coil for water operations. Approximately 2hrs into that search, Bingo! A sharp tone, followed by slight sand movement with my foot, revealed a gold colored item & seconds later Jose’s chain was in my scoop.

Have I mentioned these events cause people to do crazy things… smile, hug, shake hands, and smile some more!!!
The focused task of a 4 day and 10 hour search was quickly forgotten when I reunited Jose with his special chain.

“The Ring Finders”, good folks doing amazing things to reunite people with their special jewelry!

  

Wedding toe ring found at North Beach Provincial park

from Cobourg (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-613-243-9118

I was contacted by Ambi today to do a Special recovery for a wedding toe ring at North Beach Provincial Park. This was a first for me as I’ve never been asked to look for a toe ring before. Although this ring is small and made of silver, it has a huge sentimental value since Ambi placed the ring on her toe on their wedding day over 19 years ago. Yesterday, was their 19th wedding anniversary. Needless to say, I wasn’t going to stop until I found it for them. After about 20 minutes, the ring was found very near where she had felt it come off in the sand. I always love folk’s reaction, especially the ladies, when you first show them the lost item and then reunite them with it. As well, I learned something new today.

They are tamil. In a Hindu wedding, toe ring is also given by the husband to the wife. Toe rings worn by a woman signify that she is married. In many different Indian cultures, the husband puts the toe rings on the second toe of both of the wife’s feet during the wedding ceremony. It is worn as a symbol of the married state by Hindu women.

Very nice folks and another happy ending.

About 9:30pm I received a text from Joe.
.While in town visiting Joes parents Joanne and Leon along with other family members, They were having a beach day. Jackie had removed her rings and put them into her phone case for safe keeping. However, Their young nephew took her phone out at some point and the rings had fallen into the sand and vanished! Everyone searched feverishly for them but they were nowhere to be found. They even used a few older metal detectors to no avail. After posting about the loss on a few local pages Joe reached out to me in hopes I may be able to help. I got on the phone with Joe and Jackie via conference call and they gave me as many details as possible and a few photos. Although I had plans to go somewhere I promised them I would go there sometime that night no matter how late it was. I left where I was around 2am and made the hour drive to the beach they were at. Once I arrived there and saw all the marks in the sand from them fanning the sand by hand. (They resembled miniature snow angels.) I knew for sure I was in the right spot. I turned on the machine and began my search. First out of of the sand was Jackie’s wedding band and right next to it was her engagement ring! I sent Joe a photo to let him know the rings had been found. Later on that morning I received the kind of reply I always love to see. One of surprise, Relief and much Joy! The next day after going out on another search I met with Joe’s parents Joanne and Leon on the way home to give them the rings which in turn they met up with Joe later that day to so he could bring them home to Jackie. He told me she was filled with excitement and tears of joy when she learned her rings were coming home to her. I love being able to help people get such meaningful and sentimental items back to them! Another wonderful ending!

Contact: 1-732-581-0285
Yesterday I received a call from David. While he and his wife and their dog were at the Working dog winery he had taken off his rings and put them in his pocket. At some point while sitting in a chair out in the field the rings fell out of his pocket. He found one of them but could not locate his wedding ring. He made arrangements with the winery to allow us to meet so i could search for it. Initially he left his chair where he was sitting but by the time we arrived they had removed it. Luckily he was able to get me in the right area and after about 30 minutes of searching I was able to locate it! David was shocked that i was able to find it. He was relieved and happy even more so! After he had left he told me he surprised his wife and she was very excited and happy to know it was found. She also said she is considering glueing it to his finger! 😂 Sounds like something my wife would say to me also! Another happy ending!

I got a call to find a white gold wedding band by a man. he wanted to wait to go to find it. I thought that it was ok to wait. Due to bad weather conditions and the fact that it was a state park. He was reviewing his videos of his  outing at the park to see exactly where he lost it. he changed the search location slightly by one exit . Then back again to the original. I then found it after about 10 minutes of searching . I was soo happy That I was able to find his wedding band.
