Lost Woman’s Diamond Engagement Ring in Lancaster, OH “FOUND”.

  • from Newark (Ohio, United States)

I received a call from a guy on New Years Day about a lost White Gold and Diamond Engagement Ring. The ring was lost in the snow during the night before. I showed up a couple of hours later to search for the missing engagement ring. After asking more questions, I found out that the ring was thrown. I searched in the freezing temperatures in 3 inches of snow for a hour and a half with no luck.

A week later he wanted me to come back out and try again. Since the snow was mostly gone and more grass was visible. About a hour later of searching there was the ring laying on the grass beside the melting snow. I am very happy that the ring was found. He recently bought the ring for her and I wish them a happy engagement.

Bracelet found in Waikanae, Wellington, NZ

  • from Wellington (New Zealand)

Jan reunited with her bracelet

Garrick contacted me when his wife, Jan, lost her gold bracelet while working in their garden.  It was a 21st birthday present  from her mother so it had a lot of sentimental value.  Garrick thought it was probably in the large pile of cuttings and weeds, but asked me to check the garden where they had been working before he attempted to dismantle the pile.  It was a good idea because I found the bracelet within 20 minutes, party covered with some leaves beside a bush that Jan had been trimming.

This was my first find for the Ringfinders and what a great feeling to see the smile on Jan’s face and to hear the sigh of relief.

I was very appreciative of the generous reward they gave me and I will put this towards buying some more equipment.

Lost Man’s Wedding Ring in Hilliard, OH. “FOUND”

On the afternoon of 12/9/2012 I recieved a phone call from a gentleman by the name of ( Mr. Joe D ). who explained that his father, ( Mr. Tom D. ) lost a 14K gold ring while working in his yard a week earlier.. After speakin with ( Mr. Joe D.)  , I then called his father , ( Mr. Tom D. ) to speak to him and he explained the story of losing the ring as well.. I then agreed to meet them about a hour later and when I got there, I had ( Mr. Tom D. ) walk me through what he was doing when he lost his ring.. He explained that he had searched for it with no luck and even had the neighbor help.. He told me that it could be in one of the many bags of rakings or around the bushes which is where he was when he lost it.. Rather than go through all the bags and dump out all the leaves etc which would be alot more work to clean them up again, I got out my Long Range Metal Detector / Electroscope and proceded to scope the area around the Bushes where he was when he lost the ring.. Instantly I was able lock onto a target by the bushes where he was working using my Long Range Metal Detector and in under ten minutes I was able to recover his lost ring for him.. I am so glad I was able to help him.. I hope they have a Merry Christmas and wish them a very Happy Holidays.. In the pictures you with see the ring and me holding my long range metal detector standing beside Mr. Tom D.

Lost platinum diamond ring FOUND in Piedmont, South Carolina near Powdersville

  • from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)

I met Jess yesterday after she called me earlier in the week to find her platinum diamond ring. She told me she had lost the ring while doing yard work. I could sense the desperation in her voice and I knew I had to do all I could to help her find the ring. After setting up a time over the phone I went to her beautiful home and spent several hours searching for the ring with no success. After another hour went by I decided to use my Pinpointer to more accurately search around her pool and the lattice around her deck, which were places I couldn’t reach with my detector. I asked Jess more questions about what she was doing when she noticed her ring was missing and while we were talking I could see around the decking where the lattice was a bit loose, so I asked her if I could pull it back to look underneath the deck. She agreed, so I got down and pulled the lattice back and reached my hand in to push away some vines and I saw a glint of metal. After moving more leaves and vines back I saw what we had been looking for! Low and behold, there was her diamond platinum ring.

It was such an emotional thing for me to give her the ring, but that didn’t hold a candle to the emotions that she felt, I’m sure. She overflowed with tears and gave me the biggest bear hug I’ve ever had! Wow!! It was worth all the frustration of the time it took to find the ring. So don’t give up until all the avenues have been exhausted and don’t lose hope.

This was my first search as a member of The Ring Finders and I hope to have many more successful stories to share.

Lost Knife in Dallas,Tx Found

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)

We received an email from a very nice lady stating that her husband’s small pocket knife was lost in their yard.   We thought it was a little unusual to get a call on a knife but we are always excited to help people .  As we talked further we found out that the family had gone out and cut down 2 Christmas Trees this year and had strapped them to the top of the family SUV.  Upon arriving at home the father had pulled out his very special 3″ knife that his wife had given to him as a gift on their wedding day.  He used it to cut the rope holding the Christmas Trees to the SUV and then gave it to his oldest 10yr old daughter Ally to cut the other side.  She cut the rope and put the knife in her top pocket of her jacket and helped her dad and sisters drag the 2 trees into the house.  After getting the trees inside, she realize the knife was no longer in her pocket.  After 3 days of searching the 3″ thick grass cover in large leaves they had nearly given up.  10yr old Ally was heart broken at losing her daddy’s special knife. 

Ally’s mom got on the internet and found our “The Ring Finders” website .  She called and my wife and I set a time come by.  Upon arriving at their home we had a roughly 80ft by 40ft area of thick grass and leaves.  We got out our equipment and I began the search.  My wife’s ACE250 was acting funny  and she decided to just let me hunt.  She had her pinpointer with her while talking to the customer.  As you can imagine at every beep our detectors or pinpointers made the 3 daughters were right their with us looking for the knife.  Finally I suggested to the mom that they go check the SUV one more time while we continued the search of the yard.  My wife just sat down in the beautiful yard and kinda of just moved her pinpointer around and it went off.  She said “Don, go get the girls, I GOT IT”.   Ally the daughter who lost the knife came running out and grabbed the knife out of the yard and held it to her chest, she was almost in tears.

Ally and her family thanked us and thank us and then even took pick pictures with us and our equipment so they could so their dad.  Just another happy customer for “The Ring Finders”.

This hobby is so much fun!
