This ring find started with an email from Tom and required a fair share of logistical work. While Located on Oahu Tom and I found a way to get me to Kaua’i. Tom shared with me that this ring has been with him for over 29 years and had its fair share of close calls but never like this. This one seemed like it might be a goner for good and need help. I was hopeful and determined to return such a precious ring. I flew over to Kaua’i with my dad as it was his day off and there’s no better of a partner than family. We got our rental and headed to the beach where tom explained to me where he lost it. It’s always important to get as much details as possible on a search like this and tom did as I asked and made me a detailed map to put me in the best location. As I entered the water and got chest deep I started my grid and not long after I hear that equinox TONE. I dig a big scoop and there in the bottom on my Xtreme sand scoop is Tom’s ring. I shouted to my dad… We did It! And a couple who was on vacation came down the beach to find out what the commotion was about and I held up Tom’s ring and said… Once lost…Now found! They were excited as well as my dad and I. it was a nice flight back to Oahu. I was able to call Tom and ask for his address and send him his ring back with some goodies from Hawaii. Another great return and it Always comes from a place of Aloha.
Jason Roberge, an experienced ring finder, received a call from Jamie who was in Minnesota for a work convention. She and some co-workers were outside participating in some team-building activities in a field near the meeting site. She had removed her precious rings before the event and placed them in a pocket. But, she later realized that the rings had slipped out of her pocket. Unfortunately, she had already flown back home and had no way of searching for herself.
Jamie contacted Jason, and he was happy to help look for the lost rings. Most of the snow had melted from the day before, and Jason was able to find both lost rings rather quickly. The rings were shipped back to Jamie, and she was overly relieved and happy to have them back!

This recovery happened to have an international case attached to it as I received an email from Masako and she was located in Japan. She sent me a picture of her lost wedding ring which she lost in the water while here in Hawaii doing a tour out at the Kaneohe Sandbar. Because of a language barrier we used the internet to communicate and it was interesting to say the least. After a few emails concerning logistics and several attempts due to coordinating a boat with the company that she had the tour with and my scheduled times off from work and family I was able to get out and look for her lost ring! After many hours and countless scoops later I hear this faint sound. I dug it and BAM there in the scoop is her ring…What a miracle… a platinum ring with 3 diamonds and a small ruby inside the band I know its Masako’s ring. I yelled out… I FOUND it! The captain who escorted me out was as happy as I was because this was one of their customers who lost her ring while on their tours “captain bruce tours cptbruce.com” and as I held up the ring and gave it to him as he drove the boat over we both said at the same time… AMAZING! it was a nice ride back to the main island and as we were in route I emailed Masako to let her know the ring is found and on the way to be shipped back to her home in Japan. Another Amazing recovery!
I got a call from a client Ron who was very upset about visiting a neighbors house and having his fiancé loose a Platinum Diamond engagement ring . He asked me if I could come over to Coral Springs to find his Platinum ring. He stated that he had been searching for it since Christmas Day with metal detectors . I came over about 0900 the next day. He kept asking me whether it flew off his fiancés finger into a nearby lake.. I really thought 20 feet was too far away . I began searching and after a few targets like the sprinkler system. I finally got the prize target. He was soooo Happy .. and I felt very good also. What a good Christmas present although a little bit late.
Mark contacted me. Found me on Kijiji but used “TheRingfinders.com” to make sure I was on the up and up. He was in the backyard with his dogs and when he went back in his ring was gone. His gut instinct was that it fell off when he was throwing the ball. When I arrived, there was lots of evidence that he had been looking for it already. A big patch of snow had been cleared. His words were, “Before I rented a detector I thought I would give you a chance.” Good choice Mark. I have had several people rent a detector, only to tell me they had no clue what the sounds meant. I searched the area with no luck. Then we followed the path back to the back door. I had one tone, which we looked at and moments later another. I love it when I hear the ring’s actual tone in my headphones. We grabbed the camera for the reveal. Awesome. Less than a year married, and just back from his honeymoon, Mark is glad to have his ring back and is planning on resizing it.
On November 10, 2020, I received an e-mail from Jimena about her lost engagement ring. She and her fiance Ivan were raking leaves two days earlier, and at some point, she noticed that her engagement ring was missing. They knew the ring had to be either in their yard or where they had dumped leaves. Jimena and Ivan even bought a metal detector but couldn’t find the ring. That’s when Jimena searched the internet for help and found me through The Ring Finders website. The next day, I searched several areas, including an area across the street from their home where they dumped leaves and their front and side yards, with no luck. Before searching the backyard, I decided to search a pile of yard waste located at the far end of their yard, where Jimena said she had thrown some of the leaves. I got into the pile of sticks, grass, and leaves and started my search. The second target I hit, buried in the leaves, was the beautiful engagement ring. Jimena and Ivan were so happy to have the ring back before their wedding, which was the next month. I’m glad that I was able to find the ring and wish them a long and happy marriage.
Garrett was working on installing some de-icing equipment on his roof when he shook his hand and felt his ring fly off his hand. “I could hear it bounce off the roof and hit the ground below, said Garrett, a resident of Bloomington, MN. He frantically searched the immediate area below. He even cut down a large shrub to better his efforts. Furthermore, after borrowing a metal detector from a friend, he was unsuccessful in finding the lost ring.
He contacted The Ring Finders, and Jason Roberge agreed to come out and help him with his search. Roberge was quickly able to find the ring in the snow and leaves below, and Garrett was thrilled to get his ring back. Garrett commented, “I spent the majority of the afternoon talking about how efficient and fast you were with locating the ring.”

Hello I was out detecting this past weekend at to beach and detecting in the surf and water at night. It was around 3:29 AM when I got a good signal in the water. I investigated and recovered the target. What i found was a class ring from 1981. Now most people would just scrap the ring for it’s gold weight. But I decided to try and find the owner since it’s the right thing to do. After much research I was able to locate the owner two days later to return it. When I got in touch with her she was very happy to here I located the ring and explained that her daughter was wearing the ring 15 years ago when it was lost. She explained she thought the ring was lost forever and was almost in tears when she learned it was found after so long. I agreed to bring it to her since she only lived 45 minutes away from me. When I got there she was extremely happy to see her ring again. She also explained her father bought the class ring for her which is why it meant so much. I was very happy to return it to her and see the smile on her face. It’s always a pleasure when I can help someone. I am including pictures of the ring and her.
On Sunday, October 18, 2020, Matt and his wife were married on beautiful Narragansett town beach, followed by a celebration in the North Beach Club House. At some point after the ceremony, they noticed that Matt’s wedding band had slipped off. Friends and family helped search the beach and the Club House. Guests even got a rake to search the sand and tried using a metal detector as well. Unfortunately, these efforts only caused the ring to sink deeper in the sand. They decided to search the internet for help and found TheRingFinders.com website. On Monday, Matt sent me a text message asking for my help. As soon as I got his message, I contacted Matt to let him know that I was on my way to search for his lost wedding band. That’s when Matt told me that the wedding band had been handed down to him by his late grandfather. Matt and his wife live in Cambridge, MA, and were unable to meet me at the beach, so they provided photos of the two areas where they thought the ring might be. I started my search closest to the water, and in ten minutes I found Matt’s ring about 8 inches deep in the sand. I called him with the good news. We met that evening, and he was thrilled to have his ring back.
