Monday, September 14, 2020: The previous week of September 7-11, I was having a streak of bad luck.  I was becoming miserable due to one bad thing happening right after another and another and another.  On this date, right as I came home from work, depressed, I was cleaning out my lunch sack and prepping the “arriving home” routine.  Living out in the country has its perks, I went outside to the back of the house taking out a rotten pear that I never ate for lunch, thinking this will be a great snack for some of the wildlife around my home.  I threw that pear over the fence..and something else went along with it, my wedding bands.

With the sun in my eyes and just wanting to let out some steam from the streak of bad luck, chucking that pear and having both my wedding rings slip off my left ring finger were the cherry on top of this terrible, toxic cake of bad luck.  I bet my face was priceless.  I felt like the character, Rose, from the Titanic tossing the Heart of the Ocean over the edge of the ship and watching that precious gem float to the dark depths. Fortunately, I found one of the bands quickly, as it slipped off as my hand came back to my side landing on the concrete below.  The other, I knew was either over the fence or near it because I could hear it “clink” hitting the metal pole.  Devastated and hopeless, I scurried to try and find the missing piece.  No such luck.  My heart sank faster than watching the Titanic on fast forward. I called my husband, sobbing while trying to explain what had happened. That night, no ring found, we both sat in sombering silence, each of us quietly crying to ourselves.

Throughout the week of September 14, my husband and I were looking in desperation in hopes of finding the missing ring.  I was mentally preparing myself to simply say, “hey, it’s just a material object, it won’t come with me once I’m dead.”

These rings belonged to my grandmother.  My grandfather told me that when he was going to marry her, he let her pick out the rings.  These were pieces SHE wanted.  I never knew my grandmother, she passed away tragically by taking her own life.  My mom was 16 at the time and took ownership of her rings.  Despite the tragedy, my mom always had wonderful stories about her and even though I never knew her and through her stories I learned to love her.  I wanted to know everything about her.  I never thought I would be married.  I’m really strange and unusual, but someone came along and thought I was just right.  When my husband asked for my hand and I said, “yes,” I asked my mom if I could have grandma’s wedding rings.  She said that I could have them telling me that she knew they would be taken care of…just not when I’m tossing rotten fruit over the fence.

My husband and I tried renting a metal detector but we are amateurs and we were just hopeful that we could find it.  No such luck.  We pulled pieces of the old deck apart in hopes to find that it slipped through the cracks.  No such luck.  We both couldn’t believe how I could lose something so precious.  My husband knows I take great care of my family heirlooms or vintage clothing.  He questioned, “Why? Why did it have to be the rings?”  I didn’t know what to tell him because I asked myself the same thing.

As the days went on, my left ring finger naked and my stress acne gone crazy, I was searching for rings that looked just like it.  I found some that were really close…but they weren’t THE ring. I kept Googling, “how to find a lost ring?”  Through the search engine, I found The Ring Finders website.  Hesitant to call or email any of them at the time, I kept the website saved and in my mind just in case.

On Sunday, September 20, 2020 My husband and I agreed to take the plunge and contact one of the few Ring Finders in Ohio.  Sadly, each Ring Finder is about an hour or so from New Carlisle.  I was desperate and willing to pay the gas fee for any one of them (and a bonus).  If one wasn’t willing to make the trip, maybe another would be and so on and so forth.

So, I chose 1 out of the 5 around the area.  I read Stephen Adams profile and thought, “well here goes nothing.”  Taking a deep breath and being honest, I sent an email stating the ugly truth of throwing a rotten pear over the fence and losing my ring.  Now, all I could do was wait for a response.

Monday, September 21, 2020:  I was at work when I received a call and text from Mr. Adams.  My husband also sent me a text stating that he just spoke with Mr. Adams and he was going to be at the house by 4-5 PM.  I was stoked to get a response so quickly and to have him come so soon!

Upon Mr. Adams arrival I told him the story again of me being dumb by not doing my usual of taking my rings off before I toss anything, the story of my grandmother, and showing where I thought to have lost it.

I wasn’t sure how soon he would find the missing ring, but as time went on, mere minutes feeling like hours, I began to worry.  My husband joined the conversation and I jokingly said to him, “I’m sorry you married Tweedledumb.”  We both chuckled as I started to search for a photo of the missing ring.  I found a photo from my wedding album on Facebook and made my way over to where Mr. Adams was sifting through the gravel.  Right as I was flipping the phone to show him he asked me, “does it look something like this?”  While holding the ring between his fingers.  My jaw dropped!  Oh my gosh, he found it!  He did it!

I was so overwhelmed and euphoric by the find.  My husband told me that as he arrived, he prayed to Saint Anthony to find the lost item.  Prayers work people.  God gave me the nudge to contact Mr. Adams, Mr. Adams took the call and found the ring.  God works in mysterious ways, planting people in our lives for a reason.  This whole event happened for a reason.  I hope that he can continue to help others and I now have another great story to tell with the history of my wedding rings.

Thank you again, Mr. Adams for traveling far into New Carlisle from Columbus to find my missing ring.  My husband and I are ever so gracious.  God Bless.

Received a text late Sunday evening (9/20) from Bob. He said that he had lost his wedding ring while doing yard work that day and wanted to know if I could help. We talked Monday morning and we agreed to meet at his house at 1:30. After hearing his story of the loss I decided to begin my search in the back yard where he took his gloves off. Around 5 minutes later his ring was back on his finger and the smile back on his face. He’s no longer in the dog house. And so now the story continues.

Watch video link below…

Matthew contacted me telling me he had just lost his wedding band over a patch of ivy and wanted to know if I could be of help locating it. He told me his family has a commercial sign business and while working a job in Lacey, WA with his father he lost his gold wedding ring. He told me he had recently been working out getting in fit as in a few months he would be off to the National Guard so the ring was now loose fitting. He also told me that his wedding anniversary was just a few weeks away and his wife was concerned about his missing wedding ring.

He remembered having the ring on while working and had become a bit concerned about it slipping off and then seemed to notice something was missing. Sure enough his ring had slipped off while working over the ivy.

Mathew and his father had spent over an hour poking through the ivy and could not locate his ring. At this point they knew they had to get someone with some experience involved. They did an internet search and found TheRingFinders.com and noticed my listing.

Matthew told me he was leaving town later that afternoon. I assured him and he agreed no one would randomly find his ring. I also informed him that I had availability later that same afternoon. I told him based on the information he provided I would head out and start the search and if needed I would contact him for any additional details as necessary. He agreed and the search effort was set in motion.

Watch the rest of the story of how Matthew’s gold wedding ring is recovered.

Cheers,

Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring Found and Returned, Myrtle Beach SC.

from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-333-4114

Last Saturday, I was on my way back to the house after spending 2 unsuccessful hours in the surf looking for a mans lost ring. I got a phone call from Oliver asking if I was the “Ring Finder Guy”. Oliver explained that a friend of his had lost her engagement ring the previous day. Oliver, looking to rent a metal detector, had been referred to me by Joe Denton, our local Minelab distributor. I told Oliver that I was already on the road with my gear and would meet him in 15 minutes at the beach parking lot.

Oliver graciously covered my parking expenses and we headed toward the beach. Upon arriving I met Claudia and Edwin. Walking out to the area that Claudia had lost her engagement ring, she explained how she had placed it in a shirt pocket the day before. She had picked up her shirt to put it back on as they were leaving and had forgotten about her ring in the pocket. We got to the spot, in the dry sand where they were sitting yesterday and pointed out the area. I pictured a 30′ square area and went to work with my grid search. On the 5th line I got a nice low tone in the phones. Like my previous ring return it came in so low that I really felt like I was getting ready to scoop up a piece of foil. I gently used my sand scoop to dig the target. Giving the scoop a little shake revealed Claudia’s Engagement ring. I walked over to where she and Edwin were standing and held out my sand scoop for her to reach in and retrieve the prized possession. The ring that Edwin had place on her finger 2 years ago on their wedding day. The smiles tell the rest of the story.

Oliver, Claudia and Edwin, thanks for trusting the TheRingFinders.com to find your lost ring. Traveling mercies back to Baltimore.

I received an email from Kaitlyn this week about a ring lost earlier this summer. She explained her husband had been doing some gardening on their property and was wearing his platinum wedding ring at the time.  After completing his days work he realized his ring was missing. Kaitlyn and her husband were frantic and even borrowed a friend’s metal detector in an attempt to locate the ring, unfortunately no luck. As the days went on they were somewhat resolved that the ring was gone, however after seeing the TheRingFinders website Kaitlyn decided to reach out to me. I arrived on Friday around 1:00 PM and searched in the areas of the large double wide garden where they believed the ring to be. After a few quick grids with no luck I moved the search quickly up the pathway to the house and around the garage, still no luck. I went back down to the garden area and decided to expand my search in towards the woods and in there a pile of dirt there she was!! Kaitlyn was so excited to see her husband’s ring again and plans on giving it back to him for their wedding anniversary next month.

Kaitlyn, I was so happy to be able to reunite you with your husband’s ring. Congratulations!

Gents Gold Wedding Band Lost & Found Near Old Harry Rocks Dorset

Michael, his wife & friends took a stroll one summers day to Old Harry. Finding some stones, Michael showed a young lad how they used to do ‘flint knapping’ taking off his ring & carefully placing it on a jacket. Later, he threw his jacket on & returned to the car only to realize “wheres my ring”?!

They returned to he long narrow stretch of almost featureless field & searched for over an hour with no success. When Michael called me I was sure it could be found but prepared for a lengthy search. However after just half an hour the CTX3030 suddenly roared gold & there it was- lying in about three inches of grass.

Michael & wife were thrilled to be reunited with it & made a donation to Margaret Green Animal Sanctuary when they returned from holiday.

Chris & his girlfriend from Sussex were enjoying their time camping nearby & visited the beach one fine sunny day. Leaving his ring in his shoe for security he forgot it was in there & when he put his shoes on- out fell the ring and disappeared into the sand out of sight. The ring was a precious gift from his girlfriend & they both searched desperately to find it unfortunately to no avail. They called me at TheRingFinders.Com & I met them the same afternoon.

This was a straight forward recovery taking some 30 seconds but the gratitude shown was the same as those Ihave  searched  hours for. They were kind enough to make a donation to the Margaret Green Animal Sanctuary at Church Knowle the very next day .

Randy called me because he lost his wedding ring. At a pool party one of his children tossed it to him. He missed and it landed in a pile of bushes. He searched but ended up empty and that’s where I come in.  A 90 minute drive and less than 10 minutes later Randy had his ring back. I am his wife’s new hero and he is out of the dog house.  If you want to save your marriage give me a call!
