Lost Women’s Engagement Ring Found!! NRH, Texas

  • from Fort Worth (Texas, United States)

I received a call Tuesday morning from Ladonna February 20, 2024
She was working in her front yard cleaning out the garden and raking up leaves when she lost her gold engagement ring with a solitary diamond. I told her I would come out this afternoon and locate it for her. I arrived around 3:00 pm and she showed me the area. I video taped this search. She was watching and after about 15 minutes I found it but did not tell her. I started the camera and went over to tell her I didn’t think it was in this area, while she turned away I held out the ring, when she  turned back towards me she got the surprise and her response was priceless.  I’m so glad I made her day. Thank you Lodonna for the experience and thank you for the reward!!!

Right time right place

  • from Auckland (New Zealand)

I was walking along the beach scanning the sand just out for a hunt.
A man called Riaan came up to me and said you are just what I am looking for, I lost my wedding ring in the water.
It is gold and palladium which he said wasn’t worth that much, but I have heard that before. It is actually worth a lot and has a lot of sentimental value.
He pointed out the area, but the tide was in so we would have to wait till the tide was out far enough (2 hours later).
I started the search 1 hour from low tide, but as the sun went down and I went deeper in the water the sea lice started biting.
I went back to the car and put on my waders, with in 10 minutes in the water and 3 false targets I pulled a ring out of the scoop, it had to be it and luckily for me it was, as I was about to go home.
At 1030pm I dropped Riaan’s ring off to him, he was so relieved to get it back.

Ring found after being lost in garden

  • from Auckland (New Zealand)
  • In the middle of January Areej was at her parent’s house showing friends around the garden when her gold ring flicked off her finger as she waved her hand towards the foliage.
    The story of this ring is that it has been custom made for her daughter shortly after she was born as a keepsake to give her when she is older. It says there is no love like the love of my mother, in Arabic.
    A ring finder was sent to the property but after 2 hours they could not find it.
    The ring sat for another month where it had landed less than a metre from where she had been standing, there were many visits to the garden. Areej even bought a cheap metal detector but she also couldn’t find it.
    I arrived at the residence, after knocking on the door and introducing myself her father took me to where she had been standing, he said they had removed boards from the board walk to see if it was there and gestured that it could have dropped 2 metres from the retaining wall.
    I had my endoscopic inspection camera for some of the holes and crevices, but I decided to do a quick scan around the bushes with the metal detector.
    The ground was very quiet, it was awkward pushing through the shrubs and trees, there was only one tone in the leaves so I grabbed the pinpointer and exposed a gold rim.
    As I picked it up, due to its unusual shape I was not sure I actually had it, so I knocked on the door again and her father said yes yes that’s it.
    Areej couldn’t believe it, I got a very excited phone call soon after she got my message.

Lost wedding ring in the grass, Manahawkin NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

I was over on LBI checking out the beach when I received a call from Stephen. He had been doing yard work earlier in the day and noticed his wedding ring was not on his finger when he was wrapping it up for the day. Stephen had stated that between raking leaves, trimming some bushes, and a few other odds and ends around the yard, somehow his wedding ring went missing. I asked him if anything was brought to the recycling center, and his response was no, which was a big relief. I told him I could swing by in about 30 min. which worked perfect for the both of us. Once I arrived we went over in detail exactly what he was doing, and then we narrowed it down to the most likely place his ring could have been lost. After a short discussion, we headed over to the area he had been bagging some leaves, and in the same spot he had been loading brush into cans. I made a half dozen passes with my machine, when I received a really nice signal, and BINGO, there was Stephens wedding ring just a few inches under some yard debris. The look on his face was priceless as I handed his lost ring back.

Nicholas called wondering if I could come out and locate his wife’s lost engagement ring. She had lost it in some very tall grass on a small hillside, and he was unable to find it. I told him I would come and do a search for him, gathered my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got there Nicholas was waiting for me. He was able to explain how the ring was lost, and was able to narrow down the area where it might have gone. The grass was fresh, and pliable so I was able to sweep the coil to lean the grass over, and get as close to the ground as possible. It took only about 10 minutes to find the ring, and when I showed Nicholas, he was very happy knowing the ring was safe for his wife of only about 6 months. It was great knowing that something that was thought lost forever was able to be reunited again.

Lost Men’s Wedding Band at Aulani Beach Ko Olina Resort…FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I got a text last night from Kristofer who lives in Southern California and was on his Honeymoon with his lovely wife Jizelle and staying at Aulani Resort.  He found me on the RingFinders site.  Kristofer texted just as he entered the water his ring slipped off and disappeared in knee deep water.  Looking at the surf report the west side was forecast for 40 foot surf tomorrow so I told him I’d come first thing in the morning.  Kristofer gave me a decent description of the search area so when I arrived the next morning I started an immediate hunt.  About twenty minutes into the hunt I got a screaming target in chest deep water and surprisingly it was the ring.  Must of had some major wave action over night for the ring to get that deep.  In any case, I called Kristofer with the good news and him and Jizelle came down to the beach for the return.  We had a few laughs and hugs and they were obviously overjoyed that the ring was back on his finger.  Aloha to Kristofer & Jizelle!

Lost class ring swimming Johnson City, TN

  • from Johnson City (Tennessee, United States)

This was a great recovery! I decided to go diving and metal detecting to see what I could find. I hit on this class ring after about 45 minutes of searching. I searched for the owner but had no luck. It stayed on my counter top for about four months. The school where he went to would not provide any information and no one on the alumni page would respond to my messages. I posted the ring on the lost and found class ring site and had a representative from Joslin’s contact me. She was able to provide me with a last name and after a quick search on Facebook I found him. He said he lost the ring swimming fourteen years ago and was very happy to get the ring back.

Engagement *AND* Wedding rings recovered!

  • from Raleigh (North Carolina, United States)

I got a call from a woman in Chapel Hill about a lost ring. Nothing surprising there — that’s why we’re here! It took three days of trading texts and leaving voicemails before we were actually able to speak person-to-person. Turns out the wife was gardening and lost both her engagement and wedding rings at some point during her work out in the yard. I drove to the house and the husband explained the situation. After they realized the rings were gone, they rented a metal detector and had a run at trying to locate the rings…without success. He then showed me where she’d been working that day — multiple areas in the front yard, side yard, and back yard, plus some piles of weeds and other plant debris — a sizable amount of ground to cover. I decided to start in the backyard first and scanned the “gardened” areas first, then added in some of the surrounding area to be sure I didn’t miss it. At this point the husband mentioned that she had also thrown some of the pulled weeds over the fence (not into the neighbor’s yard, but onto a little additional strip of their property…), so I decided to check that debris as well. The rings were both in the debris and about 3 feet apart. Apparently when she threw the handfuls of weeds over the fence, her rings had come off and followed the weeds. The wife wasn’t at the house when I found the rings so I couldn’t get a picture of them back on her fingers, but the husband was VERY happy that she was going to get her rings back where they belonged.
