Dorsey called me about his lost ring. He had been at the beach with his daughter, and had taken it off in order not to lose it. He put it in a bag attached to the half tent he set up know it was safe. When they were ready to leave, not thinking about his ring, he lifted the tent and shook it to get the sand off of it, and the ring came out going into the sand. Not long after he realized what had happened, and searched for it not being able to find it. He had gone home when he called, but agreed to go back and meet me so he could show me where the incident had occurred.

We arrived at the beach about the same time, and Dorsey took me down where they had been sitting. It wasn’t a very big area, and we made sure we were maintaining a safe distance while the search commenced. The ring was there and it did not take long to find. No hugs or pats on the back, no special handshakes, but Dorsey was very thankful I was able to find his ring. Glad to be a help.

Lost Gold Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Set…Recovered from Lake in Tuskegee, AL!

from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-610-504-6135

I received a call last night (21 March 2020) from Alexandria.  She sounded very distraught as she told me that she lost her engagement ring and wedding band set just hours earlier while wading in knee deep water at a lake.  Alex asked if I’d be willing to drive to Tuskegee, Alabama to look for her ring.  I’ve never been to Tuskegee before.  I did a quick Google Maps search from my location in Huntsville to Tuskegee.  The trip one-way was 228 miles or almost a 3.5 hour drive!  On my Ring Finders profile page, I advertise that I prefer to stay within a 100 mile radius of Huntsville, but can definitely travel further if needed.  My mentality is that if someone needs my help, I’m willing to travel anywhere to help them.  I got back on the phone, told Alex, “absolutely,” and started planning my trip.

I left early the next morning, so that I could get to the lake in Tuskegee by 8am.  I wanted to give myself plenty of time for the search just in case it turned out to be much harder then I thought it would.  Alex was certain that she felt the ring slip off her finger while she was reaching down in the water.  She also remembered the exact spot she was standing at in the lake.  Based on those two factors, I felt very confident that her ring would be found.

I set up my Equinox 800 and headed into the water.  Once I was at the correct spot, I started my grid search.  I picked up a lot of various signals on my detector.  Alex told me that this was a yellow gold engagement ring that sits inside of a yellow gold wedding band.  The signals I was getting weren’t coming up in the gold range.  I decided to check a few iffy signals, but soon realized the object was too big or too deep to be her ring and moved on.  Then, a few feet to my left, I picked up a solid yellow gold tone on my Nox.  One quick scoop and there lying in the bottom of my Xtreme sand scoop was Alexandria’s beautiful gold ring set still locked together as one piece!!!

I saw pure joy, happiness, and relief on Alex’s face as we all celebrated!  You can definitely see it in the photo below where she’s looking down at the ring back on her finger where it belongs!  I praised and thanked the Lord!  The night before and on my drive to Tuskegee, I asked God to guide me to Alex’s ring.  He sure delivered a quick, safe, and successful search!

Some people might consider that driving 7 hours (450 miles) to spend 10-15 minutes finding a complete stranger’s ring is just plain crazy.  But this is what I live for!  I love conducting these searches and seeing the priceless reaction on someone’s face when you find their lost item and return it to them.  It never gets old!

If you or someone you know has lost a ring, jewelry, or other metal item, please contact a member of The Ring Finders.

 

Lost Wedding ring found in the snow at the Grand Traverse Academy in Traverse City Michigan with a metal detector

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I received a call from Anthony’s wife that he had lost his Wedding ring at work. I met Anthony about an hour later and found out what had happened. He had children outside on a nature walk at the school he works at. He felt his ring slip off his finder but could not concentrate on looking for it due to the children he had to keep an eye on. He came back after work and walked the area but could not locate the ring. The snow was about 5 inches deep in the area Anthony took me to. I started a grid pattern and walked about 8 feet and found the ring. It was stuck in the side of one of the footprints from them walking in the area earlier. I always like the easy short hunts.

Engagement Ring Recovered Near Shelburne Vermont

I received an email from a woman yesterday who had been house sitting for someone about a month ago. She had lost her paladium engagement ring and the matching wedding band. The owners of the home also had a family of goats.

One day after out feeding the goats, she discovered both her rings were missing. She went back out and searched by eye and found the larger wedding band, but not the beautiful little engagement ring. At some point she was able to borrow a metal detector, but had no luck with that.

She found my ad on The Ring Finders website, sent an email and made arrangements with the owner to allow us to go back and search.

We met there at noon today and got started. After a couple deep signals and about 5 minutes, a got a nice crisp tone that registered an 88/89 on my White’s detector. I knew this was it!! About 2-3” down in the bedding was her ring, I pulled it up and it sparkled in the bright sunlight. She got the biggest smile, and both rings were back together!

After a long Winter of searching for keys lost in the snow, it was nice to recover a very sentimental ring again!

Lost Ring in the Sand at Newport Beach, CA. .. Found by Member of The Ring Finders

Call as soon as possible, especially if the loss occurred in a public area.

…. Ryan contacted me asking for help to find a ring that was lost in the sand at Newport Beach, CA. I was very close to the location so it was easy to meet him while he and his friend were still at the location.

When I got to the place where Ryan and his friend had set up their towels, he told me they had been tossing shells out towards the sand when his ring slipped off his finger disappearing into the sand. After two hours of searching he had lost hope of ever seeing it again.

These are the easy searches. Mainly because he felt the ring slip off and he knew the exact area of the loss. It’s just a mater of turning on the detector and swinging it over the place where the ring was hiding in the sand. Usually the ring doesn’t get deep enough that a metal detector can’t find it. It still took a few minutes to find this missing ring because it wasn’t straight ahead in the direction they had tossed the shells. The ring showed up almost 90 degrees to the right and only 8 feet from where he sat while tossing shells.

A very nice young guy and it was great to see his smile and sincere grateful attitude when I handed him his ring. Being able to help people find things that are sentimental to them, never gets old. Can’t wait for my next call.

SeattleRingHunter Lost Item Recovery Specialist LAND & SCUBA Call ASAP 206-618-8194

I received a call from Christi asking for my help in recovering a very special ring she had lost in the back yard. She explained that she had just removed a rock from her dog’s mouth. She then threw the rock towards the arborvitaes hedge line. The next thing she knew her multi generation family heirloom platinum diamond ring was no longer on her finger!  She was a hundred percent absolutely certain the ring flew off and was somewhere in the yard. I told her I would be happy to help her out and I was on my way.

When I arrived she retold the story informing me this time that she actually witnessed two items fly though the air after throwing the rock she had removed from her puppies mouth. She even showed me where the rock she threw had landed close to the hedge line. This was all very reassuring news to me lining this up to be a fairly straight forward recovery scenario. She also informed me that she had already received permission from the neighbor if we needed to search the yard behind the fence. As I investigated the fence I quickly realized it was a metal chain link fence and the neighbors back yard had a water feature under construction with large rocks with many deep cracks. I prepared myself mentally that this could be a challenging search if the ring landed close to a metal fence or worse went into the neighbors yard.

 

               

She also told me she had considered renting a metal detector from one of our local shops. However after seeing TheRingFinders.com she figured it was the most efficient option to call upon an experienced recovery specialist. As many people report she had no idea TheRingFinders even existed and was very happy to have found us.

With my detector in hand I got under way with the search.  Fortunately the arborvitaes hedge line made a great back stop as it didn’t take more than a few quick minutes to locate her cherished heirloom diamond ring. My detector easily rang out a five VDI signal holding true to the platinum ring below. Her puppy even came over to check out what all the fuss was about as I recovered the ring from below the shrubs. Christi was extremely relieved and happy to have her precious ring back on her finger.

    

I was extremely happy to have recovered her ring and quite thankful it did’t fly past the fence into the neighbors yard. Another ring recovered, another smile earned making for a happy day during a time of global stress and health concerns.

Cheers,

Jeff Morgan

Gold Wedding Ring Lost in Yard in Riverside, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Al called me last week to ask my help in finding his wedding ring. He had been cleaning out a yard drain of dead leaves in his neighbor’s yard, and spreading the leaves out so as to not make a pile of them when he noticed his wedding ring of 46 years missing from his hand. We talked, and he told me that as soon as he secured permission from the neighbor to have me search with my detector, he would call me back. He called yesterday letting me know he had the permission, and we arranged to do the search today.

When I arrived Al was waiting for me. I got my equipment together, and he walked me over to the yard. It was overgrown with grass, and had a thick layer of dead leaves which would create quite a problem in locating a small item like a wedding ring for sure. Al told me he had tried with a detector his wife had purchased for him previously, but without success. I have found that without experience, trying to do the search not knowing how to use the detector usually results in an experiment in frustration for the person looking. I have the time on the detector, and the number of recoveries to know when to press on in an abysmal situation. When I turned the detector on, right away I was experiencing electrical interference, so I adjusted for that. Then there was a chain link fence next to the search area, so when I received a good signal near the fence, I adjusted the pin pointer for that area. The yard was very clean of metal trash, and I got a couple of good signals that proved to be too deep for recent loss. It wasn’t until I got about 20 feet from the drain that I got a great double beep on a shallow signal, put the pin pointer in moving the leaves around, when we both sighted the ring edge on its side pushed into the dirt. Al was so very happy when I lifted it out and handed it to him. He and his wife picked out the rings (hers is similar) 46 years ago when they got married. 46 years, truly a marriage made in Heaven. So glad to be a help, especially in these dire times!

Lost Southern Hemisphere Gold Wedding Band at 4 Seasons Resort Ko Olina…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from 4 Seasons Security. Security wanted to know if I could come out to the resort and look for a guest’s ring in the lagoon. Since it was getting late I told them I’d be there at first light. The next morning Security met me on the beach and showed me the general area to hunt and if I found the ring to let them know. I went back to my car to get my Equinox & scoop and when I returned to the beach I met Sean from Sydney Australia. He told me he was the person who lost the ring and confirmed the search area. He told me the previous day after applying sun lotion he walked into the lagoon and in waist deep water his Southern Hemisphere white gold ring fell off. He saw it hit the water then disappear. He told me his wife who would be arriving later today had the Northern Hemisphere ring and they went together to complete the Earth. I had to find it PLEASE!!! I swept this area the previous day so their weren’t any targets until about the fourth leg of the grid search and boom the Nox is screaming. One dig and there in my scoop is half the world in white gold. I motioned to Sean who was on the shoreline that I found it and I swear it looked like he burst into tears. So happy to help reunite these magnificent rings. Aloha to Sean!

Lost Titanium Wedding Band at 4 Seasons Ko Olina Resort…FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find started back on October 10th 2019 when I met Ian from Roseville California. While enjoying his vacation at 4 Seasons Resort his Titanium Wedding band came off somewhere in the lagoon. My initial search didn’t find Ian’s ring and the search area would include scuba as Ian was swimming in a large swath of the lagoon. Then there was a spell of bad weather and surf. A few scuba dives still yielded no ring. Finally on Friday March 6 on a dive outside of Ian’s grid I found a Black Titanium Ring with “Modern Gents” engraved on the inside. I immediately texted the picture to Ian to confirm the recovery. After consultation with the Jeweler it was looking like this might not be his ring. Then the Jeweler confirmed it was possible as they work with other vendors. I told Ian I would mail the ring to him so he could confirm himself once and for all. Ian confirmed it was in fact his ring by sending me a pic and a “Shaka”. Glad to finally get that ring find settled. Aloha to Ian!

Lost Diamond Hoop Earring Found In Farmington Michigan

from Detroit (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-313-683-3082

wHOOP It Up!

The pictured lady experienced a turnover when her earring went missing last week.
Her and her mom jumped through hoops trying to end the losing streak.
We agreed to meet this morning and move around the play area looking for a scoring opportunity.
Scanning the half court, we noticed a soft relaxing couch large enough to sit, sleep, lay down and watch the game.
After that tip off, my teammate and I dribbled and passed towards the end of the court to set up and score.
Reaching into and thru a hoop hole in the material, I yelled slam dunk! as I pulled out this beautiful 20 points of diamonds hoop earring!
We were thrilled that all the hoop-lah was over and that our dunkadelic strategy along with playing above the rim defeated the underdog with a large point spread, putting her earring back in the game, and bringing March madness to March gladness!
