Texas A&M Class Ring Lost during a little softball practice, found by John Volek TRF-Houston

I was contacted by Maddie a 2018 Texas A&M graduate, who was looking for someone to help her find her lost  2018 Texas A&M Class ring.

Maddie reported she was at mom’s house in Katy, Texas when she lost her ring while playing catch in the front yard. Maddie said the ring flew off her finger during one of her throws and felt very confident it was somewhere in the front yard.

Maddie said she and her friend spent several hours searching for her ring in the front yard with no success. It was at that point Maddie’s mother did an internet search and found The Ring Finders Metal Detecting Services and placed the call.

I met with Maddie at her mom’s residence in Katy where we walked through the events leading up to her losing her ring. After a short grid search of the front yard, Maddie was re-united with her class ring.

Always fun finding these Texas A&M Class Rings!

Gold Wedding Ring Lost in a Cypress, Texas back yard while playing toss with the dog, recovered by John Volek-TRF Houston

Gold Wedding Ring Lost in a Cypress, Texas back yard while playing toss with the dog, recovered by John Volek-TRF Houston

I was contacted by Nikos a resident of Cypress, Texas who was looking for help in finding his lost Gold wedding band in the backyard of his residence. Nikos reported he had been throwing his dog’s fetch toy in the backyard of his residence when the ring was lost. He stated during one of the throws his custom-made gold wedding ring flew off his finger and landed somewhere in his backyard.

Nikos said he spent several hours searching for his ring, and eventually procured a metal detector to aid him in his searching efforts.  After several attempts with the metal detector and many hours in the Texas heat, Nikos realized he needed some help and conducted a little internet research and came across The Ring Finders Metal Detecting Service. Nikos said, he placed the call without hesitation and asked how successful I felt about finding his lost wedding ring.

After setting up a time with Nikos, I arrived the following day and conducted the search for his lost ring.  Nikos walked me through his steps and re-enacted the throwing of the dog toy to demonstrate the pathway the ring may have taken.

The photographs show the outcome of this search and help to illustrate that just renting or borrowing a metal detector may not always be the solution.

Great day in Texas!

Lost Engagement Ring found at East Beach Santa Barbara

  • from Ventura (California, United States)

I got a call from Ian on Tuesday morning asking if I could help he and his fiance Cielo locate her engagement ring that was lost Sunday evening. It was accidentally lost in the tide as Ian had been holding it for Cielo while she was swimming and it came off while he had handed her the towel. It immediately buried itself in the wet sand and as each wave moved over it got buried a little bit more. The conditions were great for a Tuesday afternoon search and I felt pretty confident that I could recover it unless someone else had beaten me to it.

I got there and met up with both Ian and Cielo and I started the search and began to grid out the area. I wasn’t having much luck going east so I went back to where I started and moved west and on my second pass I got a signal and two scoops later we had the ring back! It was an awesome recovery and it was so cool to be a part of it. If you have lost a piece of jewelry time is not on your side and the sooner you call or text me at 805-290-5009 the sooner it is we can plan it’s recovery.

Lost ring in Ship Bottom Lbi NJ Found by Matt St.Germain

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Recovery #17 for 2021
Yesterday I was contacted by Ken. While at the beach in Ship Bottom Lbi NJ with all of his family members to say their last goodbyes to his late father, Ken was wearing his fathers ring and at some point during their walk on the beach the ring slipped off and disappeared into the sand. I made arrangements with Ken to meet him this morning so he could show me the path he walked. During his walk he stopped at the trash cans to throw out some trash he had picked up that had been left behind from the summer. He also went into the water calf deep to pay tribute to his father. As he walked, I followed behind him with my metal detector searching every inch of sand as I went. Once we got near the garbage cans I heard a nice loud tone on the machine. Bingo! I had the ring safely in my scoop! Ken was very happy and relieved to have his fathers ring back! I am very happy I was able to find it for him!

18k Gold Wedding Band Lost on Steep Trail – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Portland (Oregon, United States)

Matt had slipped & slid down a steep slope leading to the Sandy River, near Troutdale, OR. Once at the waters edge he realized his wedding band was missing. His visual search and later use of a metal detector he owned was unsuccessful. He found my info and within a few hrs I was on my way. As I started searching he reiterated how slippery the ground was and even though I was wearing relatively new La Sportiva hiking boots down I went and I also slid for about 15′. After wiping off some mud and blood I was at it again this time working uphill to my last coil spot. I’m not sure if the ring was at it’s previous resting spot or I knocked it downhill some but just barely covered was Matt’s ring; the Equinox 800 did it’s job.
Matt was quite relieved and very appreciative to see I had it in hand as I cautiously climbed my way to the top of the hill. Such a great feeling to return a wedding band.

Sentimental Pocket Knife Found, Falmouth, Massachusetts

  • from Falmouth (Massachusetts, United States)

You probably have a story of your own about how a relative gave you something special when you were a kid or a young man, something you’ve treasured over many decades.  Such was the case with Billy.  His father presented him with his Barlow pocket knife when Billy was 20 years old and Billy carried it for 60-some years.  It was an everyday tool, often used, and it always brought warm memories of his father.

Unfortunately, one of those everyday uses ended in the loss of the knife.  Billy remembered using it to cut open sacks of compost and potting soil when he was planting butterfly bushes, and he only later realized that the knife had disappeared.

My interest in metal detecting and finding lost objects for folks came up in a conversation we had many months later, and when Billy told me his story I said that I’d be very happy to look for the knife.  When I arrived with my detector, he pointed out that it likely was near the last bush he’d planted, and it turned out that he was spot on.  It took only a few minutes to find and recover the knife from beneath 6 or 7 inches of soil that had been used to fill the planting hole.

Unfortunately, nature had taken its toll on the knife.  Nonetheless, Billy was delighted to have this very sentimental item back in his hands.  I told him how to use electrolysis to remove the rust, and hopefully it will clean up reasonably well.  Although we are ‘ring finders’, it’s not always about rings…..

Lost and found gold diamond ring Buckhorn Lake.

Received a text from Dave and Lori yesterday evening from Buckhorn Lake, North of Peterborough. Dave was at the dock with his brother in law Marco, when he was wiping his hands and his diamond wedding ring fell off his finger, bounced once on the deck and then between two deck boards and into the water. The good part is that they both saw the ring fly off and go in between the boards into the water (under the deck). The bad part was that there was almost two feet of silt, branches and dead wood under the deck. Silt and weeds are the worst conditions to find any jewelry under water.

I met with them mid afternoon today and after getting all the facts, got into the water and dove under the deck. The worst part about silt bottoms is that as soon as you disturb any of it, visibility goes to 0%. From there, it’s all about your metal detector, pin pointer and feeling with your bare hands while laying on the bottom. First target up, an old pair of vise grips. Second target, an old pop can.  Then, I removed as much dead wood and debris as possible to hopefully hear the right target. After an hour or so, had to come out of the water to warm up and regroup. Lori fed me a nice hot cup of coffee and some Italian pastry and back in the water I went. This time I heard a very faint signal and again, with zero visibility, started digging into the silt with my fingers and pin pointer. About forty minutes later, I finally felt Dave’s ring, moved away from the deck until I had enough visibility to look and confirm that it was indeed his lost wedding ring. As I surfaced, I got Marco’s attention and signalled to him that I had found the ring and gestured for him to grab my IPhone and start recording as I wanted to get Dave’s reaction as I reunited him with his ring. Dave and Lori were ecstatic and it was great to witness the joy and happiness they felt as he slipped his ring back onto his finger. Another story that ends well. I even got treated to a glass of champagne, cold meat and cheese before heading back home. I love what I do.

 

 

 

Tears Of Joy When Lost Heirloom Ring Found In Ottawa

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

This was a tear jerker! Eric received a Ring Finders call this afternoon. 40 years ago Cinzia’s mother had given her a gold flower ring when she was just a child. She then passed it over to her 6 year old daughter. This morning on there way to school her daughter was skipping down the center of the walkway, a few blocks down the road her daughter noticed the ring was gone! Her daughter was pretty upset loosing this heirloom. A coworker told her about a metal detecting service to help find a lost rings, she did a search and found us. We arrived in the early afternoon and we could tell this ring had a lot of sentimental value. Cinzia showed us the path they walked. This was one of those really tough curb strip searches. A lot of  low tones with foils on the surface. We thought it would be a good idea to start our search where her daughter noticed it missing. The great thing is Eric and I are a team, Eric took the right side of the path and I took the left. We slowly inched our way along both side of the path checking every surface signal we received. After about a 1/2 hour of searching we had only covered 1/4 of the path way and I got a loud low tone.. I took out my hand held pin pointer and as it started to ring off I saw the glimmer of gold hiding in the grass! We anxiously walked back to her house to return it.. As she opened the door I held it up and asked, is this it? As soon as she saw it she gasped and put her hand over her mouth, yup my eyes filled up with tears lol! I love ring recoveries and we are so happy we received this call and we were able to help!

Lost Gold Wedding Ring – Found! Baden, PA (Pittsburgh Area)

  • from Indiana (Pennsylvania, United States)

Brian Carpenter – Ring Recovery Specialist, Pittsburgh, PA and Indiana, PA. Lost your ring or other valuable jewelry? Metal Detecting Service. Call/Text 814-244-2300 as soon as possible for assistance.

I received a text from Mr. Lopez who stated that he had lost his ring while gardening at his residence and would like my assistance. Upon my arrival Mr. Lopez stated that he had been working in his garden in the front yard and had spent some time in the back yard as well. Mr. Lopez had a front yard that is one big impressive garden with several different species of flowers and plants. The challenge here would be to make it around all of the plants and flowers without disturbing all of his hard work and not missing any of the terrain where the ring could be hiding at the same time. I began my search and BAM! within the first few minutes (a personal best!) I found the ring hiding in a tuft of grass. When I knocked on the door Mr. Lopez was concerned that I was knocking so quickly after getting started that maybe his cat had escaped from the house, however much to his surprise it was because I had found his ring. I was relieved to have found Mr. Lopez’s ring and return it to him as he had mentioned about having to replace it and I believe that some things can just not truly be replaced.
