I was contacted by a couple this past weekend that had lost their engagement/wedding band set in their front yard. They had looked for it for several days themselves using a metal detector, but he admitted he didn’t know how to use it. Although he did manage to find one part of the ring, but not the other half. The ground there was literally saturated with metallic trash so I knew the search could be difficult. I was initially told the ring was silver, so I concentrated on the high tone that silver makes. I like to hear all the tones as well to make sure I don’t accidently discriminate out a good target that is close to junk. After searching a fairly small area for around 40 minutes, no ring, and I was running out of options. That’s when their jeweler called back, (he had the other half of the ring), and said the ring was not silver, it was white gold, (I had asked them to check). During my search I was ignoring the low tones that white gold makes since that is the same tone that foil makes. So I searched the same area again, and in around 5 minutes I got a 12.02 on my CTX. The ring was hiding in a bowl shaped depression totally covered under the grass.

I had a guy to contact me several months ago about a high school class ring he had lost in 2005. He had since moved out of state up to Pennsylvania. This weekend being Mother’s day he was in town visiting family and had obtained permission from the current homeowners to do a search in the yard. So this has been several months in the making. He thought it was white gold, but wasn’t certain. I wasn’t sure what kind of signal I would get on my CTX, and I knew it would be several inches deep, so I was doomed to dig just about everything. I started up towards the house and worked my way down to the street, drawing my grid lines. I had been there about three hours and had dug a bag full of trash and modern coins. It’s slow going when you have to dig nearly everything. We had only about five feet of yard left before we got to the street when I got a signal that at first looked like trash. The CTX didn’t give me a VDI number, (I think there was trash very nearby), but I did have a consistent tone and a small tight target identification picture on the screen. Since it was consistent I dug it and out popped a ring that had been in the ground for 16 years. It was 3-4 inches deep, a little deeper than I thought it might be. Another happy ring owner!
Received a phone call from a young lady last evening about having lost her engagement ring. This ring was very special as the diamond was a heirloom given to her fiancé, for him to have the ring especially made for her. She mentioned that she took her dog for a walk to the park and that she was also doing yard work in the back yard. The grass rack broke and she was picking up grass clippings with her hands. With that said, I was pretty sure the ring would be located in her yard. After 45 minutes of gridding the yard, I found the ring. It was so well disguised, in the grass, that there is no way anyone could of found it just by looking. I’m so happy I was able to reunite her with her beautiful ring. Her reaction in the video is priceless. All that ends well!!
Recover 5/1/2021 – I got a call about a lost diamond ring and after getting all the info I proceeded to the address. It ha actually been lost for 3 weeks which sometimes can be of concern. (someone found it, thrown by lawnmower, etc). Making matters worse it had the potential to be in some really tall prickly vines and grass. After 2 hours of searching I found it. So happy to see the ring back on this girls hand!
I met my customer . he said that he was waving his hand to one of his friends and his ring flew off. he was saying that it flew about 20 feet. but after searching for a while there I asked more questions. I found that it must not have gone that far. so I reexamined the area closer. I was only getting a target that sounded like a penny. but guess what after checking the target out .. it was his ring. he was very happy. and left me this beautiful testimonial.
Waving to a friend, my wedding band flew off my hand. First time ever in 60 years the ring left my hand. Looked in the grass unsuccessfully .
Sent text to Craig Marten explaining my issue at 10:15 PM. He was at my home ready to search at 10:00 AM the next day.
10:45 AM he found my ring.
Very grateful of his quick response and successful result.
I received a call from Mike, who’s recently retired from his roofing company and handed over his business to his son and now has plenty of time hunting for old bottles in the Manoa valley. Many wealthy people lived in the valley, and their trash dumps held a lot of very collectible bottles.
Mike asked me if I could help him and a few friends locate where the old trash dumps might be using a metal detector. I said, sure, I’ll give it a try.
After about 3 or 4 hours, Cali came up to me and said I lost my ring last week while working on my farm about a 30-minute hike in the dense jungle. I said, what the hell are we doing looking for bottles when we could be looking for gold.
After tromping through a rough jungle, we came upon the spot where he lost his ring, and sure enough, it was right where he said it might be.
Another happy customer!
Not much to tell here. I got a call from a gentleman about a ring he lost on his property. He was splitting and tossing wood in a couple different places on his property when he lost it. I searched all the areas and found it in about a hour. Was very glad I could help him.
