Lost Gold Diamond Wedding Band Set Recovered in Nottingham, Maryland!

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

I received a call back on the 18th of March from a woman who was positive she lost her wedding set in her back yard while doing some spring cleanup with her husband. Despite searching through the leaves for hours, they were unable to locate either of the rings. They also decided to go out and purchase a metal detector and give that a try. They quickly realized if you are not proficient and experienced with a detector, attempting to use one on the fly leads to frustration. I was able to meet them at their home that very day (Sunday) and immediately began my search once they showed me the probable areas where the rings might be. After about 20 minutes……SUCCESS!

The rings(the one in the picture above is her engagement ring) were not too far from each other and were up close to a shed in the yard. To complicate things, there were spare railing pieces leaned up against the shed making the “hiding place” perfect, but they couldn’t escape me!

The rings are now back where they belong with their very happy owner!

Contact: 1-808-699-0521

Aloha,

On Saturday March 10th 2018 I noticed on Craigslist a lost Gold necklace and ring which was LOST at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I was previously there hobby hunting but in the water earlier that morning. So, I replied to the post and I got in touch with Jessica. Jessica was more than happy to give me the info needed so i could narrow the search area as it is 9:45 in the evening and visibly would be poor. I packed up the equipment and kissed the wife and kids good night. I arrived at Waimea bay and start the search. almost 2 hours into the search and after many coins and rubbish I FIND THE JEWELRY! I was so excited to text Jessica while standing on the shoreline for a meeting the very next day. She agreed and we met up in Salt lake Where I was able to return her precious items. This hunt was very spontaneous and yet Successful. Thank you Jessica for allowing me to reunite your MISPLACED ITEM… Happy to find it but excited its back in the rightful owners hands. Below is a clip of the journey!!!

ALOHA…

Cheerleader Loses Wedding Ring Set In Oldsmar, SRARC Recovers It

Christi leads a cheerleading team in Oldsmar, Florida. On Wednesday night, prior to practice, she had removed her wedding band and engagement ring and set it on top of her bag. With darkness falling and practice over, the girls grabbed their bags. Christi gets to her car and reality steps in !!! My rings !!! Racing back to the corner of the field, no rings were found.

On Thursday, Ryan, her husband was able to borrow a metal detector at work. Four hours of gridding and searching delivered a big, fat goose egg.

Ryan did some internet searching and was lead to the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club and their team of Ring Finders. Mark Prue got the call from Ryan on Friday and the three agreed to meet in Oldsmar the following morning.

After dodging a disc golf tournament, dog walkers and a cricket match in progress, Mark started searching the area. The second target Mark came across found his XP Deus screaming GOLD !! A quick search with the pinpointer confirmed it. He pulled the grass aside and there it was !!! He called Christi over, told her to look here …..hugs and tears ensued !!! Another return for the Ring Finders !!

The wedding ring set.

Diamond set Omega watch recovered from lake in Warwickshire village

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

This search was a difficult one. It was the second time I had been to recover some items that had been…well no easy way to say it but quite literally thrown in a lake.

The first visit was very difficult, it was just before Christmas and half the lake/ large pond was frozen which in some ways was helpful as the lost items would have been on the surface of the ice, so I only needed to look where the water had thawed. The water was extremely cold but I did have very high waders. that session I managed to recover one diamond ring and two bracelets before the cold really started to wear me down. Also I didn’t have the best sand scoop.

So I decided to return a couple of days ago with an all new sand scoop constructed by me using an old aluminium fire extinguisher. This thing worked great and was small enough not to grab masses of silt that was very heavy last time. The problem was this time there had been lots or rain and the water level was about a foot higher. this meant in the deepest parts the water would go over the top of my waders ( nearly 5 ft) and fill me up, very uncomfortable, also the control pod of my detector would have been submerged so that was cable tied to my shoulder strap. Anyway after a few hours and bits of trash I had a good signal, there was zero visibility in the water as one could imagine with the amount of silt, so retrieving that target was a challenge, what came out was part of a watch bracelet that was an item I had been tasked to recover. The rest of the watch had to be very close, another ten minutes and out came the rest of the the watch. It was diamond set ladies Omega Constellation with mother of pearl dial and diamonds for each numeral, and still working!

A very happy lady! and a very smelly drive home!

Just a Bag o’ Leaves – Valley Forge Lost Wedding Ring

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

Unfortunately with all the telemarketers calling, I usually let my calls go directly to voicemail and if they leave a message, I know it’s usually not a salesperson. Well one of those calls was from David. He lost his wedding ring bagging up leaves; he was pretty sure it was in a compost collection bag with a bunch of leaves. Piece of cake, this is going to be an easy one! 

It’s always difficult to gauge the traffic around Philly, so I like to leave a tad sooner – better early than late I say. And this was the case here, I arrived about 15 minutes too early and received no answer at his door, fortunately David was right on time. After some quick introductions we got down to business. David told me the story of how he was bagging his leaves and when he was pretty sure that his ring when he lost his wedding ring, as it had slipped off like that before. We tried to retrace his steps the day he lost his ring and he showed me all the spots in his yard, where he work, but hopefully the lost ring was in one of six bags of leaves.

I saw the bags sitting in his garage and they were even numbered. David numbered them in order that he remembered bagging them. I was ready to get to work and find this ring; this should be done in a few minutes. I was thinking to myself that I wished they were all like this – nice dry conditions, not too cold, dry leaves in bags, this is great!

First I moved the bags out to a clean patch of grass, so that I had no metallic interference. I then started to scan all around the bags, tip them over and check the bottoms…which one contained the ring? Well, none of them did and that’s when that “easy peasy” feeling left me. I proceeded to empty one bag of leaves, as I had a hit, spread them out and detected them, but it was a false signal. So I had to regroup and start on Plan B, the yard. Things did not look so rosy anymore, but who ever said finding a lost item was easy. 
I grabbed my rucksack and headed over to the front yard, nothing left to do but execute the classic grid pattern and mark them with my little orange flags. I set my detector to discriminate out most other metals, except for gold. On my detector, the Garrett AT Pro, unfortunately this setting also includes bottle caps, pull tabs and those annoying little aluminum snippets from house siding. You really have to listen to the quality of the tone, someday I’ll get a fancy detector. I received a few hits, although some were good, they were too deep. I always want to dig them, but since I am here on a service I had to pass them by – you never know what else lies down below. 

The daylight was fading fast, so I had to pick up the pace. Then, right near where David said to look, I had a sweet sounding hit; even before I bent down I could see the glint of gold as I moved the blades of grass to one side with my coil! SUCCESS!!! It was a nice sized ring, still very clean and polished.

David was happy with the recovery and I was relieved that everything had worked out in the end. I am often just as disappointed and frustrated as the people who hired me, when I cannot recover their lost item. I love to see the smiles on their faces when I can show them the recovery – which usually hold great sentimental and or monetary value.

We talked for a bit afterwards and I found out that David used to fly on the same helicopter I work on – the CH-47, aka the Chinook. He told me one particular exciting story of a Chinook ride during his tour in Vietnam; I enjoyed relaying his experience to my coworkers.

I am also very grateful for his generous finder’s fee, which came just in time for the holidays and ended my Ring Finder’s work for the year on a high note.

Contact: 1-740-334-7293

I received a call about a lost rose gold diamond women ring which was lost after being thrown from the front porch of the house. The ring was lost somewhere from the front porch, in the front yard, on the road or in neighbor field and driveway. I first performed my search in the field then to the neighbor driveway, around the wood fence and metal electric poles. After after no luck there, then I searched the area between the road and where I started my search in the field. After a couple of swings later, there was the ring hiding in the grass. He was very happy to have the ring return to him (not picture). See the picture of myself holding the ring.

Lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen Ring… Found Iowa City, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call from Jim in early September about his lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen’s Ring. He graduated from the University of Iowa in 1972 and lettered in track and had the ring to prove it until Sept. 2nd.

He and his family went to the Hawkeye football opener in Iowa City on Sept. 2nd. It was a hot sunny Iowa afternoon and Jim applied some sunscreen before the game and isn’t sure but later he thought he might have placed his ring on top of his car while applying the sunscreen and then forgot it.

He realized during the game that his ring was missing and of course they looked for it but couldn’t find it. On the way home his son was sitting in the backseat and heard something rattling around on top of the car. When he looked out the back window he thought he saw something gold hit the pavement and then go in the ditch. So he told Jim to stop he thought it was his ring that fell off the car.

They borrowed a metal detector and searched for 2 hours and didn’t find it. Later that week he found me online and contacted me and we met the next Sat. at the location. We had five of us searching with two metal detectors for over four hours and didn’t find it.

I went back on Sunday the next day for almost 3 hours and didn’t come up with it. For any of you who have attempted to search a road ditch you know how brutal it can be. There is always so much trash and the weeds are high, plus the traffic is distracting.

I had prior commitments and work for the next month of weekends but I finally made it back out there on Oct. 15th. I switched to my 6 inch coil to get through the weeds easier and separate through the trash. After an hour and a half I got a good signal next to a buried pop can and I found it!!

Here is a short video of the recovery

Plus some pictures

Got a call from Charlie to see if I could find his wife’s ring diamond wedding ring that was lost at the beach Charlie  met me at the gate and I followed him out to the beach. he showed me where he was parked and told me that his wife had taken the ring off and put it in her shorts that she had taken off while there. After scanning the small area for about a half hour I was convinced this is not where the ring was, just a lot of trash was there. I asked him where else they were. He said he backed his vehicle straight back and showed me the area he was parked. As I was scanning my way in that direction I got that sweet sound I was looking for. about 2 inches down in the wet sand came out her ring. I picked it up and headed to Charlie, as I walked up to him I said  I cant believe all the crap I’m finding out here. His response was what did you get this time, I said I got a piece of metal  with a diamond in it and opened my hand and showed him his wife’s ring. I think I saw a tear form. He told me that the ring belonged to his mother who  passed a couple years earlier and that he gave it to  his future wife when they got engaged. That made this return extra special. as you can see in the picture he was defiantly relieved to have it back.

I received an email from Betsy on September 27th saying she had lost her wedding ring in her yard. She told me that her husband had raked the area they thought it was lost in and they had borrowed a metal detector but didn’t find it.

So I was able to make it there today October 1st. After about 15 minutes of searching the area I heard a shallow low signal 12-05 on the CTX3030 and I found her beautiful white gold wedding ring!

I was very happy to help this nice young couple find this important ring. Thank you for the nice reward and good luck to all the ringfinders out there.
