14k Boomerang Ring Found (Again)! Lost Gold Wedding Band Recovered in Bellevue, Washington!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Last week I got a request to find a lost gold men’s band in Bellevue, from Mackenzie, on behalf of her husband Tim. Unfortunately I had just started classes at my new job and couldn’t go search until this weekend. I hoped the delay wouldn’t be detrimental to the search, but I had to wait.

Tim had been part of a work party, clearing out vines and ivy at Chism Beach Park in Bellevue, Washington when he realized he was missing the ring. Likely he had taken off his gloves for a break and it came off somewhere he had been working. The ring was a sort of boomerang ring, it has a history of being lost and found multiple times in other situations, so I wanted to keep the streak alive…and find it again!  They had tried to rent a detector and search for it themselves but had no luck this time.

I don’t want to steer anyone from trying this DIY approach, but there is a learning curve with metal detecting, and it can quickly be frustrating to a newcomer. So it is always a good idea to have someone experienced to help if that doesn’t pan out. That’s where I come in!

I was relieved to quickly find the ring and return it to Mackenzie, since Tim is currently travelling. I hope to be able to post a pic of Tim reunited with it soon!

Dug up! Hiding in the leaves!

Reunited!

RING FOUND GRASS LAKE MI, WOLF LAKE

I received a call yesterday from a family friend. It was the dreaded “well, we have a friend that lost his ring in wolf lake, we’re trying to find it but need your help”. The location was marked on a cell phone app, and Nancy was able to submerge a water bottle just under the surface for additional accuracy at my request.

I went to bed last night looking at topo maps on my phone and getting a good idea on depth, and the size of the location. Many scenarios ran thru my head, was the ring lost on the boat and believed to be lost in the water, how long was it missing before it was realized, how much alcohol consumption took place before the ring was lost, etc…

This morning came after hours of tossing and turning, and the excitement of another search. A 40 minute drive to the lake, many totes and tanks carried to the boat, followed by a three person cheerleader squad and we were off!

The area was circled for a few minutes until the marker was found, submerged just under the surface. I checked my gear, suited up and jumped in. Observations from the day prior put most of the activity just past the marker, in 4′ of water. This would be my starting point for the search.

As I deflated my BC, I oddly enough wondered if I would be able to smash my fastest recovery record of 1 minute. My thoughts were disturbed by a shallow surface signal seconds later.

 I couldn’t see the bottom due to the amount of silt present, but I was able to isolate the  area of the signal. Grabbing a handful of silty sand and sifting it between my fingers, the amazing sight of a ring appeared. This led to the “Rockstar plung” upward, arm outstretched for my final time of 30 seconds!!!! 

In absolute disbelief, Nancy and Ethan gave me a stunned look which quickly changed to disappointment as they realized not even one beer had been opened yet. 

I swam a victory lap hoping to find another valuable target on the sandbar with no luck, returning to the boat to put my gear away.

A short boat ride back to the dock, and the carrying of many heavy totes and tanks puts this one into the record book!! The quickest find yet, that may never be broken!!

Nancy K Dunfield, Ron and Ethan, THANK YOU for the thought and call, I had an absolute blast and I’m glad i could help!

On June 3rd I get a phone call from Joe who is out of town on vacation letting me know that there is a Mr. Muto who is searching the beach in Ko’olina for his Wife’s wedding ring. I gather the information from Joe and give Mr. Muto a call in which i reassure Mr. Muto that i will be heading out and to mark off the area in which he thinks it might be. I arrive at Ko’olina and meet up with Mr Muto which i start looking for the ring. I come across coins, rubbish,  until i hear a loud gold tone. I dig the site and inside the Xtreme scoop is a beautiful Tiffany and Co. Diamond ring. I look towards Mr. Muto and ask him what the ring looks like and He say “Tiffany” and right away I let him know of the great news… I FOUND IT! I returned it to Mr. Muto and we both leave the beach with this overwhelming joy that washed over us with relief and satisfaction.

The next day I receive a call from Mr. Mutos wife letting me know that there is another ring lost. I let her know that i will give her a call later that night and need to check. I call the Muto’s that evening and let them know I have a Cartier diamond wedding band.  They ended up driving to my house and we were able to reunite the last of the lost rings! What started out as a single ring find ended up being a double and both were recovered and returned to the rightful owner. Mahalo Joe Another Happy ending! Aloha is ALIVE!

The Ring Finders Metal Detector service helped find a lost gold ring at Torrey pines beach. OPEN NOW 24/7 Call 760 889 2751

Saturday morning I received a call from a man named Vinary who’s wife had lost her ring at the beach the previous day.He was thinking about renting or buying a Detector but I explained that would be a big gamble as metal Detector machines require some experience not too mention the ones that could be rented or bought at a local store are cheap plus not waterproof. He made the right choice though and we ended up meeting later in the day at Torrey pines beach.They showed me a 200’ area where she was throwing a frisbee when she saw her Gold ring fly into the waters edge.
I began my grid search in the most probable place which was from the beginning of the dry sand and down too about knee deep in water. After 15-20 min I was getting worried I wouldn’t be able to find it because there was a hungry trough at the bottom of the slope with cobble rocks tumbling back and fourth. Then just after swinging with my head down I get a low tone signal on my Metal Detector…And there was her ring buried in 4” inches of wet sand just above the trough! They came over after I dug it up ecstatic with hugs and smiles.

This Ring was a gift handed down from Nandin’s mother and was very sentimental!

LOST RING FOUND IN LONG BEACH, LONG ISLAND, N.Y. 5/25/2018

from Long Beach (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-516-314-2990

This past Friday evening I get a call from a young lady, really upset that she just lost her ring in the sand, at an ocean beach as nightfall was approaching. After assessing the situation I realized that the ring could be lost forever by the end of the morning. I suggested we meet, that night, in an hour instead of the waiting till the morning light. At 9:10 pm we set up a grid and within 2 sweeps the ring was in my scoop! I’ve never met this person before but I can honestly say the expression on her face, after handing her the ring was priceless. Needless to say there was a considerable amount of jumping and hugging going on!

My very first call as “The Ring Finder” was a complete success!

“thank you so much for coming out last night to help me. You have no idea how much that meant to find my ring. I told my husband what happened and he was amazed, he would have never guessed it (ring) was retrievable or someone like (me) existed”        Keri, Long Beach, N.Y.

Luke was an answer to prayer! After spending countless hours searching for my ring, Luke found it in less than 10 minutes. Luke expressed happiness right along with me! Luke took a hobby and made it about other people, helping others and never taking advantage of them. In a very short time he revealed tremendous character and a true caring for other people.

Cartier and Tiffany & Co. Rings Found in Medina! Silver, Palladium and 3 Golds… Multi Ring Recovery!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

Got the call yesterday from Angela, an assistant to Lyn, who lost 3 rings playing with her dogs near her Medina home. After getting the necessary info, which included great photos of the location, I hurried out to find them. It was a high profile location, so time was of the essence!

Due to the great info I was provided, I thankfully found them with an hour or so. If you lose a ring, take pictures of the spot you were at, in the direction you think it flew off, this info is invaluable to a Ringfinder! Since they were unable to meet me there, it really helped to have these pictures so I could get to work finding the rings as soon as I arrived.

The rings were pretty far from the point she was throwing from, so Lyn must have a strong pitching arm! All were within 6 ft of each other.

A plain silver band, a neat Tiffany & Co. palladium ring, and a classic Trinity ring from Cartier… white, rose and yellow gold, it was a family heirloom so I was glad I could find them.

Please contact me quickly and I’ll have a better chance of reuniting you with your lost items!

On Mother’s Day, I received a call from Brigid, an upset mother who had lost both her diamond and wedding rings.  They were lost a day earlier while she was doing yard work.  The next day I went to Brigid’s home to search for both rings.  She described how she had been clearing brush and weeds, and lost the rings while piling up the refuse.  After an hour of searching the yard, I located her wedding ring.  It took an additional hour and a half to locate the diamond ring.  Brigid described the recovery as “amazing”.

 

LOST DIAMOND RING FOUND WAIKIKI

On 5/7/18 I was out on the North Shore at 5:00 AM preparing to look for a lost men’s wedding ring and it was still dark. As I’m getting ready I look online and saw a lost wedding ring posted on Craigslist on the opposite side of the island and decide to respond to the ad to offer my help. As the sun started to rise while I was on the North Shore I notice that the waves coming up and looked too risky to put my metal detector in the water next to all the reef and to look for the ring in the high surf conditions. I decide to text Faith and see if we would be able to meet up to search for the ring she posted about on Craigslist. She and I decided to meet at the beach.  She told me that she had someone come out and look for it thoroughly for an hour and a half the day prior so if I was willing she would appreciate it. I decide to go over the searched area even though it was search previously  as “It’s always good to search for yourselves”  and sure enough after a few TRASHY items I noticed on my CTX3030 a solid reading of gold/Platinum! As I look in my scoop there it is and I think to myself thats a beauty. What do I tell Faith? How do I tell her as she is simmering around the beach and telling Uncle China (Known Surfer) about her lost ring. I shout to Faith ” Do you wanna SMILE NOW or LATER?” Faith responds, “huh?”  I say it again, “Do you wanna SMILE NOW or LATER?” Faith stops in her tracks and shouts “NO WAY KAI” with tears running down her face I hold up her beautiful ring. The onlookers and the guys that were with Uncle China gave a loud shout and exciting praise!!!  The ring which is so precious was back in the rightful hands and now able to pass down to the next generation. Precious items should be kept safe and I know this family heirloom will be kept safe and passed down for more years to come. Thank you and always have FAITH!

 

 

Diamond ring recovery

from Neptune City (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-908-489-2371

Was asked not to give out to much info on this recovery, got a call at work from a woman who asked if I could help find her ring on the beach. Without to much detail as per her request, she stopped at the beach after a night on the town and managed to loose her ring. Met her after work and we went to where she was, wasn’t to hard to figure where she was with only one patch of foot prints on the beach from the night before. Started searching the area and half way through got the tone i was looking for. After a BIG hug and a nice smile , ring was reunited with the hand it belongs on.
