I received a call about a lost man’s tungsten wedding band. We had a couple of inches of snow on the ground. As he was cleaning off the car; he got some snow on his hand. He flick his hand to remove the snow but also removed his wedding band. His wedding ring flew into the snow. His searched but could not see any ring.

I started to search of the area with taking my first and second pass with no luck. As I started my third pass of the search area I got the tone that I needed. There was the ring hiding under a couple blades of grass. He was very happy to have the ring return back to him.

Wedding Ring found in Glenn Mills, PA!

from Downingtown (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-717-314-2078

Received an email from Tracey requesting my services. Her husband had lost his ring playing ball in the backyard; as much as they searched, they could not find it. I made plans to look for it on Saturday, but rains kept me away until Sunday morning.

When I arrived Robert and his enthusiastic dog met me at the front door. After a quick chat, he showed me where he had lost his ring. Robert was pitching a rugby ball around with his kids, when he felt the ring fly off, unfortunately he did not see which direction it went.

After searching the most obvious area, I expanded my grid pattern to include the area behind where Robert was standing. My second search lane produced a good hit – and there it was! Hidden under the long grass I saw the gold and diamonds sparkle as the sunlight hit it.

It was a nice ring, Tracey and Robert were happy to have it back … now time for breakfast!

Three Lost/found Wedding Rings at Gordon’s Pond Rehoboth, Del.

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

image On 06-07-14, I was contacted by a gentleman regarding his daughters three wedding rings that had been lost in the sand on the beach at Gordon’s Pond State Park beach in Rehoboth, Delaware. I learned that the daughter had taken her rings off and placed them on a towel while she was putting suntan oil on her daughter. The husband unknowingly picked up the towel that the rings were laying on and all three disappeared in the sand without a trace. I responded to the beach where I met all of the parties involved and began my grid search for the rings. After the third pass the sand gave up her bounty and one by one I was able to recover each ring and I returned them to their rightful owner. As each ring was recovered a group of spectators gave out a cheer.

Metal-detector enthusiasts ease the sting of losing the bling – The Columbus Dispatch

from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-740-334-7293

A Blacklick couple got into an argument one night last month. Cooler heads did not prevail.

It might have felt satisfying, what the man did, but it proved to be a bad decision because, once you chuck your fiancee’s engagement ring into the pitch black of your backyard, chances are you’re not getting it back.

Unless you know Jon Baughman — or any of the other Ring Finders.

They’re a worldwide collective of metal-detector enthusiasts who claim more than 430 successful recoveries of rings lost to wild gestures, extreme gardening and lovers’ quarrels.

“I guess that happens quite a bit,” said Baughman, a Licking County Ring Finder, recalling the email he got from the woman asking him to find her ring in a patch of thick weeds and water. Her fiance had launched it in that direction.

Baughman is 27, a father of two with a third on the way in Washington Township, near Utica. Right now, the former Army National Guardsman is looking for work, so he figured he’d try to make some cash from the hobby his wife’s grandfather introduced him to years ago.

A few months ago, he came across the Ring Finders website, which was started by a Canadian man who seems to enjoy nothing more than reuniting people with their jewelry. The site is full of success stories, emotional tales of lost rings. In one story, a finder salvages a clumsy proposal by digging up the ring a brain surgeon buried in the beach sand and promptly lost.

Baughman added his name to the directory in February.

He charges $25 to respond to a call. He figures that’s enough for gas and a Gatorade. He’s more interested in helping than making money. He asks for a reward only if he actually finds the ring.

The ring in Blacklick initially eluded him. He had the fiance throw test rings, trying to re-create the mood of that night, seeing where the diamond might have landed. But after three hours of searching, he lost the sunlight and found nothing.

He came back another day and worked quickly, already familiar with the area. Within 15 minutes, there it was — a shiny little declaration of love.

He texted a photo of the ring to the fiancee. She was elated.For perhaps obvious reasons, the woman asked not to be identified in this story, but she said she and her fiance are getting along much better now. They plan to marry by the end of summer.

Baughman doesn’t get sentimental about such things. He’s a detective, not a therapist.

“The main thing is being satisfied that you did find the ring,” Baughman said. “And next time they throw it, they’ve already got your number there to call.”

Lost/Recovered 14kt Gold Diamond Engagement Ring Delaware Seashore State Park Bethany Beach, Del.

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

On 07/31/11 @ 10:19 am, I received a phone call from a young lady who had lost her 14kt Gold Diamond Engagement Ring on the Beach at the Delaware Seashore State Park Bethany Beach, Delaware. The ring slipped off of her finger and fell into the dry sand while she was applying suntan oil. The sand had been searched for about one hour without any luck before I received the phone call. I arrived at the beach and found that the area of the lost ring had been marked with beach towels. I began my search and with three swings of the detector I received a familiar gold tone. I used my sand scoop to carefully recover the ring and as the sand filtered through my scoop the ring appeared. The young lady gave a cheerful yell as she said “He’s got it, I see it!”.  Another great recovery!

Recovered: Lost 10kt Gold Wedding Band Delaware Seashore State Park

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

On Sunday 06/12/11, I received a phone call from a gentleman who had lost his wedding band on the beach while helping a DJ who was working wedding. I arrived at the scene of the lost ring and was taken to the area of where the ring had been lost. The gentleman said that he had been using his hand to clean off a table and that the ring had slipped off during the side to side sweeping motion of his hand. The gentleman pointed to the area where he believed the ring had landed in the sand. I then began my search, after about ten swings of the detector and about eight footsteps I received a gold tone. Then with two scoops of my sand scoop the ring was recovered and there were smiles all around. The gentleman and his wife  were really happy that his ring was recovered. What a great ending!
