Tyreece called and told me that his fiancé was swimming in Lake Campbell at their neighbors backyard dock. While she was wading in the water her young daughter, also in the water, reached out for her mother’s hand and pulled her precious engagement ring straight off her finger. This rings is a 100 year old white gold diamond family heirloom engagement ring. Fortunately Silver was able to report that she felt the ring being pulled from her finger and bouncing down her leg to the bottom of the lake. She put a dive mask on and swam under water a several times looking around but could see absolutely nothing due to the poor visibility. As so many others can attest it quickly becomes very discouraging to say the least when something so sentimental is lost in the water like this. The fear that it will never be found can be quite overwhelming to many people.
However after a quick Google search the couple did find TheRingFinders.com directory and gave me a call. They reported that that water was not all that deep but the visibility was terrible. I assured them that this is a typical situation for me that I have developed quite a bit of experience searching for rings and small items of value in crappy conditions like this. I reassured them I would bering all my water recovery gear including my full SCUBA kit so we would have every possible opportunity of a successful recovery.
After showing up I was quite surprised to see how much bloom and silt was in the water. Fortunately Silver told me that she found the bottom of the lake to be more of a firm dirt composition apposed to a thick silty mess. This was encouraging to me that her ring would be a bit easier once I acquired it position with my dive detector.
As soon as I noticed how much silt and bloom was in the lake upon my arrival I knew I needed to construct my PVC search grid. Once again it paid dividends keeping me focused on a concise grid search not missing an inch. It was also a big help that Silver realized when her ring was pulled off from her finger and got me directly over the drop zone.
Watch the conclusion of this exciting recovery story and witness Silver’s excitement when she gets her family heirloom engagement ring back!
The symbol of a 15-year marriage lost in the surf during a family summer vacation on Block Island, RI. This isn’t the first… or second… or third time this ring has been lost. The ring was lost as early as their first year of marriage, but always manages to find its way back home…
Keith lost his ring while surfing at New Shoreham aka Block Island, Rhode Island. I arrived on the island and hitched a ride with the local taxi service to Scotch Beach. Joe the taxi driver dropped me off at the entrance and Keith took me straight to the spot where he lost his ring while surfing two days prior. We discussed the search boundaries with a couple of beach-goers who were also in the area when over the past couple of days and were familiar with the situation. This was the same area Keith had a local metal detectorist from the island search on the previous day, but he obviously came up empty handed. After hearing this news, determination was at an all-time high. Keith explained this was his first-time surfing and he was falling off the board constantly. He felt feel the ring slip as he took one of his falls, which is good news when trying to recap and identify the search area. He remembered the water level being knee-deep about 2 hours after high tide. I turned on my detector and got started searching in the knee-deep water. Except the knee-deep water kept going! That is one reason this beach is so popular; the gradual slope is great for frolicking in the water but not so great for trying to pinpoint the location of a lost ring by water depth. I spent a total of 3 hours searching for this ring dodging frisbees, footballs, and boogie-boards, oh and small children. Good news, the gradual slope left most of the search area in ankle-deep water as the tide went out. I cleaned that beach out, there was not a pull tab, bottle cap, or bit of lobster cage left in that entire area. I scooped up what must have been the very last piece of metal on the beach, and when I looked down, I saw a glimmer of silver as the sand washed through the drain holes. Finally!! I low-key inspected the ring for the Tiffany markings Keith mentioned earlier, careful not to be too obvious with my inspection. I didn’t want to alert the crowd of people standing on the beach sipping White Claw and laughing at us for wasting our time looking for this hopelessly lost ring. I came back to the chairs where Keith was sitting and told him I needed a break. He understood and we started talking about the ring. I asked question after question to confirm I absolutely had the right ring – I did not want to drop the big surprise and present the wrong ring! I stood up, and said I was heading back out another round of searching, but before I walked away, adrenaline pumping like I was about to propose, I leaned in with my scoop and asked Keith if this was his ring. He sat there in shock for a second then reached and pulled the ring from the bottom of the sand scoop. We celebrated for a moment then he told me of all the other times this ring has been lost over the last 15 years. Keith has managed to get this ring back over and over again. His persistence and refusal to give up is the reason he gets it back every time.
“Keith is truly the best. I was skeptical but he went the distance taking a ferry to block island! He found my ring in the ocean!! I had someone else try before him and after twenty minutes he told me it was a lost cause.. Keith spent over 2 hours. On top of that, he’s a really good guy. Highly recommend.” – Keith

Eddy was playing the in the sand, burying his two year old daughter in the sand and notice shortly after that his wedding band was missing. After an hour or so of gridding the area, ring was found. Another happy ending.
I got a call to find a white gold wedding band by a man. he wanted to wait to go to find it. I thought that it was ok to wait. Due to bad weather conditions and the fact that it was a state park. He was reviewing his videos of his outing at the park to see exactly where he lost it. he changed the search location slightly by one exit . Then back again to the original. I then found it after about 10 minutes of searching . I was soo happy That I was able to find his wedding band.

Jonathan contacted me explaining a few weeks prior he and his wife were surfing at Westport WA. He told me that he stashed all of his gear on the big rocks near the shore line. However when he started walking in the surf he was concerned about his gold heirloom wedding ring. At this moment when he went to check his ring it got loose and fell off his finger. He watched it fall into the ocean water and was devastated. He then spent a lot of focused time and energy searching the sands hoping to find his ring. Even after purchasing a pair of swim goggles and returning the next day at low tide to no avail Jonathan was not able to locate his gold wedding band. After this experience he did an online search on metal detecting for a lost ring. He found TheRingFinders.com website and started calling for help. A few other finders were unable to assist and Jonathan was told to give me a call. I answered the call and the hunt was on! I scheduled the hunt for an early morning tide with a two and a half hour drive with nothing more than a hope and a prayer that the cell service was good enough to support a face time video call. Jonathan stayed in Seattle as I headed out to the beach in the middle of the night. I reminded him to keep his phone on so I could call him once I arrived on the beach.
Fortunately the cell service was good for a FaceTime call. We spent forty-five minutes on video chat in the dark with my flashlight crawling all over the beach in search of that one specific patch of rocks where he stowed his gear. After much time we settled on one specific spot that grabbed his attention from his best memory. I keep Jonathan on the call as I walked out into the surf and this was one of the smartest decisions I made all night that truly paid off immensely.
We were amazed his gold heirloom wedding ring, having been lost at sea in the surf sands for a total of nineteen days, remained in place as if held by the very hand of God until the day of recovery. I was honored to have the oppertunity in recovering Jonathan’s ring. Now his cherished family heirloom wedding ring can live on as an example to all to never give up on hope and faith. A truly inspiring story and reminder to each of us that difficult situations can and do end with success!
“This ring is extra meaningful, not only because it represents my achievement of graduating from college, and not only because it connects me to an earlier generation of Vassar women, and not only because it was given to me by one of my favorite professors, but also because it is something I will cherish forever, a piece that will remind me of how much I loved my school. Although I did not have the graduation and end of senior year I had hoped for, I’m so happy to always carry a little piece of Vassar with me!” – Emma
A lost college ring brought me to one of Connecticut’s earliest coastal communities, Pine Grove in Niantic CT. I approached the small riverside beach not knowing what to expect as far as search conditions. This was an unusual circumstance for me because I usually get the fine details of the job before arriving. Only briefly discussing the lost ring over the phone, I realized the location was only 20-minutes away and I could squeeze the search between the other things I had scheduled for the day – there was no time to get the details if I was going to make this search happen. Emma stored her ring in the side pocked of her chair for safe keeping. Later, she dug into the pocket and must have unknowingly pulled out the college ring while retrieving the other items. Investigating the area and seeing the telltale dig marks in the sand next to the chair, I had my starting point. By calling me right away, before moving the chair and before excavating half the sand on the small beach, Emma set the conditions up perfectly for a quick recovery. When I saw the gold vintage ring in the sand, I knew this was a special ring that could never be replaced.
“THANK YOU, Keith, for reuniting me with my one-of-a-kind memento! It is so special to me, and I am so happy that I can proudly wear it for years and years to come.” – Emma
