Lost wedding band in Stevensville, MI

from Grand Rapids (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-616-406-6653

Driving home from Chicago I received a cell call from Kurt D. who lost his wedding ring. He said he lived in Stevensville, Mi and I told him I just past a few miles from there on my way back to Grand Rapids.

Kurt lost his ring in the basement of his duplex. He had placed it on a towel while doing something and when he grabbed the towel the ring popped off and landed somewhere in the basement. He heard it ting when it hit the floor but could not find it after searching for hours. Kurt went and rented a metal detector to no avail. He searched the Internet for lost rings and found theringfinders and my name.

I called him on Sunday night when I got home and discussed his problem and how he searched but could not find the ring. We discussed the $50 travel expense and said I would be coming down the following Friday. I then told him I could save him $50 if he followed a few directions for another search of his basement.

I suggested that he clear one side of the basement and then search all the cracks and crevaces, then go to the other side of the basement and take one item at a time, search through it and then place it in the cleared out area. After that is done look up in the floor joyces to see if it lodged up there some place. Finally check around the furnace and air ducts and any other fixtures in the basement.

The next day, (Monday), Kurt texted me and said ” I’m delighted to tell you my beloved wife and her friend actually took your advice and found the ring while I was at work. lol”  ” Thank you so, so, so much for your tme and most importantly your expertise”. He told everyone at work what happened and if anyone ever needed a Ring Finder we have one at our disposal.

So another happy husband reunited with his wedding band  sans metal detector and  physical presence of the RINGFINDER.

Surprise call today. A call from Joe asking if I could help him locate the sewer covers for his cesspools. He knew about where they were but not surer how deep.

I found the first about 10 inch below the gravel. After more than an hour and a half in the 32 degree weather. We called it quits. Joe thanked me for coming over with no notic and in the freezing cold. Thank you Joe for the gratuity.

On the evening of friday the 13th, Pat carried the christmas tree outside  to put it out for the trash, while we removing his glove, with a flicking of the hand his wedding band flew off into the snowbank. Soon afterward the snowplow went by. Pat and his wife started to scoop the snow and bringing it inside to melt it. After a few hours of  melting snow Pat decided to Google a professional, and this is when he called me late last night. After speaking on the phone I assured him that he was in good hands, and that I was going to meet up the following day between 9h30 and 10h00. I arrived at Pat’s home and he showed me where the ring was lost. Pat had shoveled the snow and made a pile in his driveway. I decided to search the snow pile spreaded across the laneway,  well my gut feeling was right, swinging the coil and about 45 seconds later the sound of gold rang through my headset, it said about 4 inches in the snow, I pulled out my pinpointer and searched the snow, there shining and held with a chunk of snow glistened a mens white gold ring. Pat was extremely happy and gave me a huge bear hug. I love what I do and this passionate hobby.

Recovered Ring



Mystery ring

from New South Wales (Australia)
Contact: 0405 779977

All I had at the start of this search was a second hand lost ring story and a rough search area on an island at Wallis Lake in Forster NSW.

The ring had been lost by a group who had hired a boat earlier that day and the search area was described as “somewhere over there in the water near that sign”.

What made it worth having a go was the sea grass bed which defined the seaward limit of the search area and a vague description of where the people were seen to have been searching and reports that they had been searching in knee-deep water about two hours earlier. Objects lost in water are less likely to be “accidentally” found so the odds for success were good.

Work commitments prevented me searching until late the next day but after about forty minutes, two lead sinkers, a bottle top, the top of an old aluminium can and a few startled sting rays the ring was in the scoop just after dark. That’s one of the great things about what we do; when you think about it, there is no great need for light once your search area is set up.

The ring was white gold with a small diamond with no inscription.

That was challenge one completed but challenge two was locating the ring’s owner. With some assistance from a very helpful boat hire company and a local Council Ranger, the ring’s owner was found. The next day the ring was picked up from my office so I never met Wade (ring owner) but the irony of the name and the fact that his wedding  ring was lost in knee-deep water didn’t escape me.

Gold Rush in Maple Ridge BC / Huge Gold Rings…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Its been a while and yesterday afternoon I was out doing some Christmas shopping with my brother who is from California when I received a call from a young lady. She said that her father had lost his ring. She ask me a few questions and said that her dad would give me a call.

I got the call minutes later and the man went on to tell me that he had lost 4 huge rings at his job site, they had dropped out of his pocket because the zipper broke. You could image how upsetting that would be as he wasn’t sure where they had fell out…I was excited to get out there and search for his rings but I had Christmas shopping to do so I rushed around and got it done and shot out to Maple Ridge to help find the rings.










I got to the job site at 5:30 pm and we talked about the possibilities of where he thought the rings could be, he told me that he spent 6 hours the day before searching and sifting the dirt for the rings and 4 hours the next day. He called his daughter and asked her to search the internet to see if there was anyone out there with a metal detector that could help… She found ”The Ring Finders”

I turned on my trusted Whites XLT and it was going crazy with the power line directly above me. I quickly went back to my truck and took out my new Whites V3i and set up the frequency and was able to program the detector to cancel out about 80% of the interference from the power lines above me.

After about 30 minutes the young man jumped into his backhoe and started to level out a big pile of sand so I could check it out and while he was doing that I went to another area where I got a good signal and started to dig…

Ring #1




What a sight to see when this came out of the dirt! We were very excited and hopeful that the rest would be close bye…


Only a yard away from the first ring…I knew the rest would show up close bye…


Ring #3

These were very large and heavy rings!


This was the biggest ring and what a great feeling to find all 4 rings, he said Christmas came early for him! I have to say that was fun! I think I found more gold then those guys from that reality show called Alaska ”Gold Rush”

Thanks for the kind reward!

I Love my Job!

Lost something? Call me ASAP! I’ll help you find it.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band Recovered in Laurel, Maryland!

from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-410-215-7826

People say things like, “three is the charm” and “things come in threes”. If you are a hockey fan like myself you are familiar with the term “Hat Trick”. Any way you put it, it rang true today! I was able to help my third person this year by recovering his lost ring. Speaking of threes, all were platinum wedding rings!

I was contacted by Adam earlier in the week through We made arrangements to……..actually, let Adam tell you in his own words!

In December of 2011, I lost my platinum wedding ring while rough-housing with our 2 dogs in our back yard. I felt my ring slide off of my finger and thought I heard it fall into leaves a few feet away. My wife and  I searched the area on our hands and knees for the next several hours without any luck. We even bought a cheap metal detector to aid our search but couldn’t find it.

I decided to search the internet to see if platinum could actually be detected and came across Jim’s blog.  My wife was skeptical, but I figured it was worth a shot and sent Jim an email to see if he could help. From this point forward I do not have enough positive things to say about Jim. He responded to my email within 20 minutes and was very responsive in all of our exchanges afterwards.

Unfortunately I cannot say the same thing about myself. We had agreed to meet up at 5:00pm. I had trouble leaving work and showed up 10 minutes late. It was dark and slightly rainy but by the time I arrived Jim had already found my ring !

Thanks so much !
