Wedding ring found in snow, and returned to owner.

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

Jackie called and told me she lost her wedding ring in the snow after an evening of sledding at her sisters house. I arrived the next day and began my search. Due to her schedule, Jackie was unable to be there with me. After searching for about 20 min., I gave her a call to obtain some more information on the exact area she was sledding. After I spoke to her, I received a great hit on my Garrett ATPro under some ice. I had to use my shovel to break up the ice and then I found her ring. I sent her a text with a photo and she immediately called me and was so excited.

We made arrangements for her to drive to my house to get the ring back. I met her a few hours later and she told me they had bought a metal detector and searched for hours with no luck. If you have lost a ring or piece of jewelry, don’t waste the time and money trying to search with a cheap detector but call me at 610-207-8677 and allow me to find your lost item with my professional equipment.


How to find a lost ring in the snow in Nashville Tennessee

  • from Nashville (Tennessee, United States)

I received a text from Simone today. She had lost her engagement ring in the snow. We had just gotten several inches of snow in Nashville. I told her I would be there as soon as I could dig my car out of the snow. When I arrived I was met by Simone and her husband. Seems they had bought a metal detector to look for the ring. They were not sure if it was working correctly so they tossed another ring into the snow to see if they could find it. I ask what the engagement ring was made of. Silver I was told. I found the test ring and that seemed to build their confidence that her ring could be found. I searched about 15 more minutes and hit a solid Gold signal. I recovered the 14K gold engagement ring. Everybody was HAPPY!

Lots of hugs and crying after engagement ring is found in Allentown, PA

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

I received a text from Danielle saying that she lost her engagement ring while playing outside with her children during the Thanksgiving weekend. She bought a cheap metal detector and searched for several days before deciding to contact me. We had several texts back and forth before she felt comfortable having me search for her ring. She was sure someone had already found the ring and didn’t want to waste my time. I assured her that if the ring was in her yard, I would find it, as it was a very small yard and had only been missing for a week. I met Danielle and she showed me where the ring came off after she threw a toy to her children. I searched the entire area for about an hour and was only finding bottle caps and scraps of aluminum just under the surface of the grass. As Danielle watched me search, she just kept repeating, “someone found and took my ring, it’s gone”. She had lost all hope of finding it and I was losing hope as well, as I had searched most of the yard twice. When I was about to quit and return to my truck, I received a signal in the gold range but it was not very strong. I searched with my pin pointer and it hit on the ring in a small patch of higher grass. It was pushed into the soil as if someone stepped on it. Danielle had been back inside working from home when I knocked on her door. As she opened the door, I was holding her ring and she was overcome with emotion and began to cry and hug me. I was so thrilled to return her ring and see her emotions as we were sure someone had found it already. If you lost a piece of jewelry, don’t wait or try to find it with a cheap metal detector. Call me at 610-207-8677 to have a professional with the proper equipment to find it.

Engagement Ring Found!

  • from Eau Claire (Wisconsin, United States)

Got a text from Cara. While working at a horse ranch she lost her diamond engagement ring.  The ring had more than monetary value.  It had belonged to her fiancee’s grandmother who passed away five years ago.  She wasn’t sure where she lost the ring so we retraced the route she took while watering and feeding the horses.  This included paths and multiple paddocks, which were were a combination of mud and horse droppings.  I found out that some horses are very curious and frequently got in the way.  One apparently thought my Garrett carrot was an edible carrot.  We searched for almost two hours and were about done when I got a solid steady 11 on the Equinox.  The ring was about a half inch down in the mud and manure!

I received a frantic call form Linda yesterday afternoon requesting my service to locate her gold engagement ring which she had lost while installing her Christmas lights! Linda told me she had spent a couple of hours searching for her ring in the shrubs and on the lawn with no luck. Within a 1/2 hour I arrived and within 5 minutes her ring was returned to her! Linda was so relieved to have her ring back on her finger where it had been for the past 43 years.
Thank you Linda, for entrusting me to find your ring.

Lost ring recovered from the Big Lake They Call Gitche Gumee

  • from Chisago City (Minnesota, United States)

I received a call from another Ring Finder from Southeastern Wisconsin (Paul Humphrey) about a party that had lost a ring up in Lake Superior and was wondering if I would be able to go up and assist a couple with finding their ring.  Paul was about 4-5 hours away and thought I would be closer.  He said that he would go if I was unable to make it. Superior Wisconsin is east of Duluth Minnesota by about 5 miles. Its about 2 ½ hours North of the Twin cities.  I told him that indeed I would be able to help them out, and that they could get ahold of me to set up a time that would work.  A short time later I received a call from Grace stating that her husband was in the lake at Wisconsin Point playing with their Labrador and when he got out, he noticed that his ring was missing.  He was not very far out in the lake but was not sure where he lost it. Wisconsin Point has several beautiful sandy beaches and has some sand bars that that go out about 250’ only about 3-4’ deep.  Grace sent me overhead photos with the location somewhat marked out.

I went up on a weekday while they were at work. I had a pretty good idea from talking to them and the photos where they were at. One thing that was said was they were on a sand bar. So when I got up I called them and let them know I was up looking for the ring. I was unable to reach either one of them but did leave messages for them.  So I started working the beach and the edge of the lake with my metal detector.  I was working a long narrow stretch about 400’ long.  I noticed a sand bar and recalled something said about that, so I decided to work out a couple hundred feet. All places that would be a great place to play with a dog.  I spent around 5 hours working the sand bar.  Beautiful weather, sunny skies, surf was calm, and very few people to work around. Near the end of the day a gentleman walked up and introduced himself as the person that had lost the ring. He said that I was 250’ to far east.  So I moved over and started working the area that he said he was in.  A storm front moved in and was starting to lightning about 15 minutes after moving to the new location.  We were forced to pull out for safety and would have to come back another time.

About a week or two later I went back up and was looking in the area that was pointed out to me.  I started my day working the beach where they had set up for the afternoon.  I just wanted to rule out the sandy beach before going into the water.  It would not take long, and I could be reasonably certain that that area was cleared.  While searching the beach what appeared to be a mother, daughter and a toddler were out on the beach in the area around where I was searching. The toddler was so cute and was mesmerized by my swinging the detector back and forth. She would follow me just to see what I was doing.  It was added to the enjoyment of the search.  I briefly spoke to the adults about what I was doing and that I was on a mission rather than just scavenging looking for lost items.

After that I went back out into the water, another beautiful day. Surf was calm and a beautiful day to be out searching. I was working a 100’ wide area going back and forth along the beach working my way out further into the water. The beach had a drop off about 15’ out that dropped down about 2 feet.  It was difficult to cover the area that had the slope being sand. I worked it from the top side and then the bottom side.  I found a cell phone and some miscellaneous junk items.  After about hour I was out about 35 feet and I picked up a signal. It was not a signal that I was thinking would be the ring but scooped it up. I could not believe it, it was the ring.  A beautiful rose gold ring with black diamonds just as they described.  I kind of let out a little YES after I found it and the folks on the beach were excited that I had recovered it.  They came over and seen the ring and where amazed at being able to find that small ring in such a large body of water.

Being 2 hours north of home I called and again was unable to get ahold of Grace and left her a message I was hoping I could meet up with her to give the ring back.  She called me back about 10 minutes later.  “ Hey Grace are you working today? I have something that I would like to get back to you”– No she said she was taking her dog to the vet. But you could tell her excitement. She said she was thinking of going out and buying a new ring later that day. I told her I would meet up with her at her vets office and return the ring.  In the moment I forgot to get photos of the ring being returned to her but they did send back one of the ring back where it belonged.  I did capture a couple of photos on the beach.

What another wonderful recovery. It never gets old helping people recover lost items.



Gold Wedding Ring Found Near Scranton PA

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

I received a call from Katie who said she lost her wedding ring in a large corn play area, a place I had been to find another ring a month earlier. Walking in the corn pit is difficult and you need to remove your socks and shoes. It was a very cold and windy day during my search and my feet become numb within minutes. I found a ring, but unfortunately it was not Katie’s wedding band, so I continued to search and found her ring shortly after. I texted her a photo to confirm that I had the correct ring as she was unable to meet me at the site. She was so excited that I found it and we made arrangements to return it back to her. No matter where a lost item may be, whether on land, water or even in corn, call me at 610-207-8677.

Ring Lost On Popular Beach Location Found One Month Later By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Bogue Inlet Pier – Emerald Isle, NC

Lauren visited Bogue Inlet Pier on September 7th with her son as was wading in the surf when a larger wave knocked her over.  She told me her hands went into the sand and she felt her chocolate diamond ring slide off of her finger.  She was very upset but noticed a man out with his detector and went to him for help.  Bogue Inlet Pier (BIP) gets a lot of beach traffic and also many detectorist come there to search for “treasures”.   After being unable to find her ring, the gentleman suggested she contact Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  I made plans to hunt the very next low tide early in the morning and only a few hours after the loss of the ring.  The surf was still very strong and I too was unsuccessful.  Lauren was very upset when I talked with her and I felt terrible I could not make the recovery that morning.  I live near BIP and each time I went there to hunt the beach, I made it a point to search the area of Lauren’s lost ring.  Recently, we had some sand movement that allowed the replenished beach sand to move.  This created a low spot near the water’s edge.  To my surprise, after so many days lost and I’m sure, many other metal detectors hunting the same area, her ring was rescued on the evening of October 7th.  It was about 50 yards further West on the beach.  I had not met Lauren yet and messaged her to tell her I needed her to fill out my standard search contract.  We agreed to meet at her father’s business.  After we met and she completed the search contract without knowing I had her lost ring,.. I gave her one of my business cards.  When she turned the card over, her lost ring was taped to the back of the card.  She burst into tears.  I was very happy that something very good happened to Lauren this year as she explained it hadn’t been going well.

Family heirloom ring lost at Coronado beach found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Donna was visiting here from AZ, and while enjoying a day at the beach in Coronado yesterday, lost her family heirloom gold and platinum wedding ring in the sand. She had removed her ring to apply lotion, and placed it in her chair pocket. The Chair later got folded…….and well you’ve already have heard that story before! She and friends searched to no avail. She even went out and bought an inexpensive metal detector to conduct her own search, but, after an afternoon/evening thunderstorm that blew through the area making the previously dry sand wet again, the detector just didn’t do the job under those conditions. When my wife and I arrived, we met Donna, got the story, and I was shown the search area they had marked off. That always helps to have a known spot verified by photos taken the previous day. First pass, got a foil signal and that’s exactly what it was. Return pass, same story. Just starting the third pass, and I get a nice strong 16 on my Equinox. I said that this sounds like a winner, and sure enough, after locating it with my pin pointer, I pulled this beautiful ring out of it’s hiding place. Donna was super happy to get this historic ring back before having to leave town on Monday. A pleasure to meet you Donna, and thank you for the generous reward.


Engagement Ring Found in 50 Tons of Corn

  • from Reading (Pennsylvania, United States)

It wasn’t a needle in a haystack, but a ring in a corn “play box”.  I was contacted by Sarah who said she lost her engagement ring while playing in a large “play box” of corn at Lakeland Orchard and entertainment area. We had to wait a couple of weeks  until I became available to look for it and we were worried because this is public recreation area. When I arrived, I was amazed at the size of this paly area. Sarah was unable to meet me so she sent her mom to show me the area she thought she lost it. I arrived before the mom but the owner of the center had already showed me the general area. As I began to search, I had a great signal in about 2 min. The corn was about 18 inches deep and kept moving like quicksand as I used my pin pointer. I used my beach sand scoop and after a few scoops I found the ring.

I sent a photo of the ring to Sarah and she was amazed I found it so fast. When her mom arrived, I handed her the ring and she just began screaming with joy. I just love returning jewelry and seeing the smiles on the owners faces.
