Monday night Kathy Silbert was bicycling on the roads near her home on the west side of Boulder. She had lost some weight over the last few months and had noted that her rings were loss. On the decent back into Boulder the vibrations of the bike made her rings slip down her finger. She managed to catch her diamond engagement ring but her wedding bad hit the pavement and was nearly instantly out of site. She called her husband Mike and they spent over an hour searching the ditch but the grass kept the rings location a secret.
The following day Mike contacted me and we set a search time. After about an hours search and Mike was ready to call the ring a loss, my detector gave a nice signal and there was Kathy’s ring.

We had a warmer than normal Halloween this year so Chris spent the day doing yard work before taking his young daughter out to hand out candy (she is too young for trick-or-treating). While waiting for the neighborhood kids to come around Chris spent some quality time playing with his daughter in the front yard. The following day he noticed that his wedding ring was missing so he and Jess, Chris’ wife spent hours looking for his ring. They turned the house inside out and looked in the planters that he was working in and also looked throughout the yard with no luck. Monday Chris found my listing on the TheRingFinders directory and called me. After a brief discussion we set my search for the following evening.
After my arrival Chris gave me a quick tour of the yard where he had worked, brought out a bag of leaves that he gathered while doing the yard work and showed me the part of the yard he and his daughter had played in. I searched the front yard where he spent time with his daughter and then moved my way to the back yard. I ran my White’s MXT over the bag of leaves and it sounded off. Due to the ring’s material the signal wasn’t a great one, but there was definitely a signal in the bag. I carried the bag over to one of the raised planters and checked it for signal, none were in the planter. I grabbed a large couple handfuls of leaves and placed them into the planter, the signal was in this pile of leaves. As I moved the leaves around with my pinpointer and eventually the Chris’ ring came into sight.
Chris and Jess were quite happy and a bit surprised that I found the ring.
