Lost Mens Platinum Wedding Band On The Beach In Lewes, Delaware Found

  • from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact:

On 06/16/2021, I was contacted by Joe in regards to his Platinum Wedding Band that he had lost on the beach at Cape Shores Development in Lewes, Delaware. Joe request my help in finding his lost ring. Upon contacting Joe at the beach he showed me two areas that he had been sitting when the ring was lost. I began a grid search of the first area and I was unable to locate the ring. Joe had chairs and an umbrella on the sand in the second area that I was to search so I requested that he move the items so that I could begin my search. While the chairs and umbrella were being moved I walked over to a corner of the area where I had decided that I would begin my search. Joe was still moving the items out of my way so I laid the coil of my detector on the sand at which time I heard a tone in my headset. I scooped up the sand from where I received the tone and low and behold there was Joes lost ring. I called out to Joe and told him that he did not need to remove anymore of his beach items because his ring had been found. The ring was then returned to its rightful owner.

Contact:

On 08/04/2020, I was contacted by Renee in regards to a silver cross pendant that had been lost on the beach in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Renee stated that the silver cross pendant had been lost by her daughter and that the silver cross pendant was “Very Special” because her younger daughter had received it from her older sister who was deceased. Upon arriving at the beach Renee and her daughter showed me the area that the silver cross pendant had been lost and the area was marked by sections of wood.

The pendant was then returned to its rightful and very grateful owner.

Lost Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Toleen lost her wedding set in Ocean City, NJ yesterday while spending the day with her family on the beach.  The rings were placed in the pocket of the beach chair and fell in the sand when she folded it up. Her daughter, Alexa, searched and found my Ring Finders South Jersey page when the family realized the rings were lost. While getting some preliminary information before searching, I asked if anyone took any pictures when they sitting on the beach. Her daughter, Liana, had a TikTok video with houses in the background that helped give an approximate location. After roughly 35 minutes of gridding the area, the rings were found! Now Toleen and her family can enjoy the rest of their vacation in Ocean City, NJ.

West Yarmouth, Cape Cod, MA Lost Wedding Band Found and Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

September 5, 2021

The last of the beach cleanups were in progress and all went well. The docks were in, the boats as well. It was now time for a relaxing cool off in the lake. As it usually happened when one has weight changes their ring does not resize to echo the body’s change. Then it happens, the ring slips off and disappears underwater and down into the sand, not to be seen without help.

The three, Jim, Joe, and Jeff all knew they would need help in finding Jim’s wedding band. Several calls to friends for a detector that would not self-destruct when used underwater did not produce such a detector. A call to the local Metal Detector Dealer (Eleanor at J&E Enterprise) gave the threesome a lead. They should make a local call to Rick Browne – one of TheRingFinders and Jeff did. I answered the call and set a noon meeting time for the next day as it was almost dark. All was set yet, the night would have some anxious moments.

Leighton and I showed up a bit early as our earlier Ring Return only took a few minutes to complete.
A quick overview of the area were the loss occurred and we were into the water to search for the ring. A few coin and a bullet gave us hope. After about a minute and a half I had a very good sounding signal and yes a very large circular piece of gold was in the bottom of my scoop. I walked it in and let Jim remove his ring, untouched since it has slipped from his finger. Ring Return number two for the morning had been accomplished.

Many thanks, pictures, stories and a lot of history of the local private pond and resort area. The thrill, history, meeting new and now friends and helping others is the most wonderful part of our hobby. Leighton and I work well together, having the same ethics and desires to reunite a lost object with the owner. September 5th was another of those rewarding days we enjoy so much.

West Dennis Beach, MA – Gives Back Lost Silver Ring

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

August 27, 2021:
Andrea lost her Wave, Sand and Sea ring while walking the shoreline. For six years the ring had brought Andrea many calming and wondrous thoughts of Cape Cod and its beaches. The loss had happened in the presence of her sister who had lost an earring a few years ago but had forgotten who and how to contact for help. She did called a mutual friend who contacted me. I called and set up a meet to search for the lost ring.

Both women marked the area that the ring was lost at the previous day. Seaweed made it near impossible to swing a detector’s coil, but I managed only to finish the area with out finding the ring. I expanded the search area and within another five minutes I had found the ring.

All that was left to do in the fading sunlight was to snap a few pictures, get a bit of information for the blog, and exchange a few stories. It was a perfect ending to a very hot day on Cape Cod, another “Beautiful Place To Be”.

Grandmother Was Not Affraid to Ask for Help in Yarmouth, MA to Find a Ring.

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

August 14, 2021, Yarmouth, MA

After leaving the beach were I had found and returned one ring that had been lost the day before by Mark while he was applying sunblock on this two children – See the Cape Cod, Massachusetts Lost Ring Returned blog. Leighton and I traveled to the beach we had originally planed to detect that day. Usually when heading to and while detecting in the water we get the usually questions, too many to list. But this day was a bit different and the question was “Could you help us find a ring that was lost yesterday? My son lost it while playing catch with his son?”

Leighton had moved down the shore line while I was getting the information on the lost ring. Of course I said we would listen for it. About 15 minutes later Leighton came back as I had not moved very far and he thought I might need help. Of course I did and welcomed it.

Another 15 minutes passed and I got a signal, yes, it was a ring. John had just walked past me to talk with Leighton. I turned around and went to them and sure enough the ring was as described and fit perfectly onto John’s finger.

Thanks and picture taking followed. An exchange of a few returned ring stories and a bit about metal detecting. John’s son, John, told us he was interested more in the detectors than the stories we were reminiscing about. We answered all his question. It was wonderful to have someone more interested in the hobby than the just best things we have found. I think Leighton and I may have seeded a budding metal detectorist. What a great hobby.

Wedding Ring Lost Bridgehampton

  • from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact:

I received a call from Chris that he lost his wedding ring in Bridgehampton at a wedding reception. He asked if I could help and said I would be out the  next mourning. As usual traffic was bad going to the Hamptons, I made it and meet Chris at the Topping Rose House where the reception was held on Saturday.  I was hoping the grass wasn’t cut as a ring could get damaged by the lawn mower. It wasn’t.

Chris showed me a photo taken at the reception showing me the ring. he stated that later is when he didn’t have it on his finger. I asked where he was sitting and a few other questions.  I then got me detector and started searching.  It take long to find the ring in the grass. Looking down to where the ring was, could not see it, I used my pin pointer to located a closer spot and using my fingers I located it. I showed it to Chris and A big smile came across his face and with a shock in his voice he yells you found it.
