Lost Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ

from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-215-850-0188

I received a call from Abe after he lost his 14k white gold wedding band with diamonds on the first day of vacation in Ocean City NJ.  I met Abe at the beach and he said that the ring was in his pocket with his wallet.  When he went to meet the ice cream man he pulled out his wallet while walking and must have dropped the ring in the sand somewhere between where they were sitting and the ice cream man. Several people had been looking for the ring but there search was unsuccessful.  The search area was large and the ring was about 150 feet from where they were sitting. After a through grid and search of the area the ring came out of the sand! Abe came and gave me a huge hug and thanked me! Abe said the ring is very sentimental and was very happy that the ring was found!

 

LOST DIAMOND RING FOUND WAIKIKI

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th  and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA  IS ALIVE.

 

Rings lost at Mission Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Esther called me and asked for help finding her future sister-in-law Gerry’s engagement ring. Reason #2 again! Yup, ring put into beach chair pocket, chair folded up later when they left, and no ring by the time they got to the car. I get the particulars and find out it’s been two days since the loss. That’s an eternity on the blanket line at a popular beach, but, always worth a try. I met Esther at the beach and she directs me to the search area. Since she wasn’t with them when this all happened, I could only get a general idea of where it might be. Esther’s Brother-in-law and future husband of Gerry was on his way to help narrow the search area since he was there at the time of loss. I searched a bit in the mean time, but, only came up with a few coins. That was a good sign however, telling me that it was unlikely anyone else had detected that area lately. The beach groomer hadn’t been through there either, another thing in our favor. Hollis arrived and pointed out the area he believed they had been, and Oh, there were actually 5 rings that were lost! 1 white gold, and 4 silver, so, I’ll be digging just about all signals.

Naturally, there were other people camped right in that spot today! I started searching an open spot next to it while Esther and Hollis went to get permission to hunt under the people’s tent and around their camp. The people were nice enough to allow that, but, no ring came to light. I went back and continued to grid the open area while they tried to figure out where the next likely spot would be. After many passes and getting about 100 feet away from where the rings should be, I was just about to stop and move to search their path back to the car, and the trash cans where they stopped on the way, when I get another good “dime” signal. I scoop and sweep over the hole. Still a signal, so, I dump the sand and take another scoop. Hmmm, two rings in the scoop that look like the silver rings described by Hollis as being the other rings Gerry had lost. I called him over and he confirmed that those were two of them. I swept the hole again, but, nothing. Swept the sand I dumped out on my first scoop, and I get another signal. Yup silver ring number 3. Another sweep and silver #4. To heck with silver! Where’s the gold! Next scoop is where! A beautiful engagement ring comes to light. My first 5 ring recovery! Hollis and Esther are amazed and very happy to see those rings again, and Gerry was too when she was contacted with the good news. A pleasure to meet you, good luck on your future marriage Hollis and Gerry, and thank you for the reward.

Baseball Field Steals the Ring – Metal Detectorist Hits a Home Run

from Boise (Idaho, United States)
Contact: 208-345-8898

Monica called with a soft voice and tremble in her speech.  Could I come and try to find her lost engagement ring?  A short discussion and hours later, I was at the ball field swinging away…not at the ball, but the coil across the field.  This was not an easy task and actually took a few visits.  Luckily the baseball field was only 15 minutes from my place, so getting there was not a big issue.  Getting there when nobody is using it was.

On my 3rd visit and early Sunday morning I had about gave up when one last surface target signal perked my attention and there it was.  A couple calls later she is holding the ring in her hand and all smiles.

Thanks Monica for believing in Ring Finders and Gerry’s Detectors.

Lost Diamond Ring at Kits Beach…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I was out visiting my grandson on the Island when I received a distress call from a young lady who lost her diamond engagement ring at Kits beach. I listened to her story on how she lost her ring and how they searched but couldn’t find it, I could tell she was very upset and that she thought she’d never see it again.

She went on to tell me that she was calling me from the airport and she was on her way back home from visiting Vancouver. She also said that she was getting married in 3 months, I asked her if she took any pictures of the area on the beach where she had lost the ring and she said she did and sent them to me.

After taking a look at the pictures I knew exactly where on the beach she was, I told her that I’d be there in a couple of hours to find her ring. I headed back to Vancouver after a day with my grandson and went directly to Kits beach. I found the area she lost the ring and started my search, after 20 minutes and the good signal I was looking for and in my scoop was her beautiful engagement ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to send her a text message with a picture of her ring and when she landed back home In Saskatchewan the first thing she saw on her phone was a picture of her ring. The next thing I did was go to Fed-EX and ship back her beautiful engagement ring.

 

I love my job! If you need help finding your lost ring contact a member of TheRingFinders.com ASAP

Lost White Gold/Diamond Ring On Rehoboth Beach Found

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

On 07/16/18, I received a phone call as well as a email from Donna regarding the loss of her white gold wedding ring with diamonds that had been lost on Rehoboth Beach. Donna said that she and her husband had been sitting on the beach from 2:00 pm until about 5:15 pm and that when they got up to leave she noticed that her wedding ring was not on her finger. Donna said that her husband could show me the area of the beach where they had been sitting. I then contacted Donnas husband by his cell phone and he agreed to meet me at the beach to show me the area where he and his wife believed that the ring had been lost. Donnas husband told me that he had raked the sand in the area where they felt that the ring had been lost and that he was unable to locate the ring. Upon arriving at Rehoboth Beach, I began a search of the raked area for the lost ring and as I got to the end of the search area I was able to locate and recover Donnas lost ring.

Ring Found at Gilbert Willis Park Commerce MI- Owner Located – Wedding Ring Returned

from Wixom (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-248-622-7768

It was looking like spring the first week of May here in Lower Michigan so I went out to practice with a new metal detector at Gilbert Willis Park in Wixom.  It is a beautiful, large park and I often find coins there.  Like most parks it can yield a fair amount of junk.  I had invested the whole afternoon retrieving a mixture of junk and coins and was walking to my car when I had a good hit that I thought might be a quarter.  It turned out to be several items, first a penny and a dime in the hole, and then a diamond ring in the clump.

Sentimentally, this ring might just be the most valuable thing I have ever found.   It bore the design of half a heart with a diamond, it had an inscription and a date that indicated the ring owner had been married only a year and a half ago. The inscription “No Matter What” instantly fired my determination to find the owner.  I was enjoying the thought of returning the ring even before I had the hole filled.

I ran into a lot of dead ends on this one until I enlisted the help of a local realtor, Liz Stevenson, and the Neighborhood Exchange newsletter which she has published monthly for at least 20 years.  Everyone reads the free ads on the back of the newsletter.  I placed an ad in the July issue.   Sherry called me the day the newsletter was delivered to tell me about her husband Shoane’s lost ring.  I knew it was his ring when she told me of the half of a heart design that matched her ring; but I made her give me the inscription so I could be sure.

Shoane was playing baseball in the park and had removed the ring and pocketed it for safety. Sadly, he lost it when he went to the car after the game.  It was a win for the team; but losing the ring ruined the weekend.   After an exhaustive search, Shoane had just about given up hope he would ever see his ring again.   The ring lay buried in the park until the following spring.

It turns out that Shoane’s office was just down the street from the park.   I was able to drop the ring off and ring and owner were reunited.

Thank you Liz Stevenson for locating the ring owner.

Lost wedding rings Victoria B.C. Recovered and returned

from Victoria (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-361-8666

Jan was at Gonzales beach today with her grandson and husband. She took off her rings to apply sunscreen and forgot them on her towel. When they packed up to head home picking up the towels the three rings ended up in the sand and hidden from sight.

Steve, Jan’s husband told me he never saw his wife cry so much after they searched, with no luck. Several hours they went on the internet and found this web site. The call came as I was just sitting down for dinner with my daughter and wife. I made plans to search at 7:30 p.m. and within 3 minutes all three rings were back where they belong. Jan was shocked that it only took two scoops to recover her three rings.

I love my job.

Antique diamond ring recovered from longboat marina in Warwickshire

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

 

I received a call from Willi who lost his diamond ring that his partner gave to him only three days before!

She had been looking for this very special ring for about six months and finally found one, only to be told by Willi that it had only just slipped from his finger while they were moored on their longboat in the marina where they live.

This happened about three weeks ago and they had since been on holiday on their boat, when they decided to give me a call.

In my time as a ringfinder I’ve done a fair few searches in water with great success. So we agreed I would do a search on Saturday 21st.  I was told the depth was about 25 inches, so off I went with my trusty Sorex Pro, waders and a couple of scoops.

When I got there the whole situation seemed a lot more challenging, there was no gentle slope onto the water but a drop straight into the marina.

A ladder was now required which we soon managed to find. Now the fun began , the depth may have been 25 inches in one place but it was more like 4 feet plus about 8 to 10 inches of soft silt. This meant the control box had to re positioned to the very end of the detector shaft and detecting with a normal one handed manner was not possible. Instead I had to use two hands and use the detector almost like a stirrer while also trying to keep my scoop and floating plastic tray nearby so I could offload the silt/clay into as it would not wash through my scoop very well.

Anyway after about 20 minutes, I kept getting a very clear signal that I just had to recover, problem was I was also getting very strong signals from the steel hull of a nearby boat, so that had to be moved. After much perseverance and much smelly water filling up my waders I managed to remove the signal from the marina bed and emptied the contents of my scoop into the tray. The pure signal was now in the tray! After a little feel around in the silt out came this beautiful ring. The only signal I managed to recover and it was the lost ring!

The look on Willi’s face was priceless, along with the sound of delight from both him and his partner and a fair few onlookers.

This has to be one of my most memorable recoveries , and so pleased at the outcome.

Willi has now been told he must have the ring re sized. Good idea as I really don’t want to have to go back into that slime pit again!

 

Lost wedding ring North Shore FOUND!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

It was Sunday morning around 5 AM and I take a look at my missed calls while checking emails. That’s when I noticed there was a voicemail of a lost wedding ring at Sunset beach on the North Shore. I responded to the voicemail via text. The couple, Sean and Megan now were on vacation from Utah. We agreed to meet up so my family and I headed down to Sunset Beach.

When we arrived at their address Sean took us to the back of their beautiful vacation rental which is steps away to the beach. Meeting the family and getting the story on how Megan unfortunately lost her ring was heart wrenching. She was playing in the sun and enjoying the water with the kids and after sometime in the water she looked at her hand and noticed that her ring of 19 years fell off her finger and she didn’t know where! In desperation The family tried snorkeling but didn’t find it.

I gathered all the information I needed and headed down the beach. I asked Sean if he can grab a bunch of the white rocks in the sand to help line the bottom of the ocean floor as markers while I search and grid out the area. I decided to start from the deepest part and work my way to the shallows as the tide was on the rise! I did one pass around chest deep to over head and nothing. But, as I started to make my next line I got a loud “platinum” sound in the deeper part of the sandbar. I started to dig and fan all along looking and praying this is the lost ring. I then notice a ring, approximately 6” buried in the sand with the markings described of Megan’s ring, a big and thick Platnuim band with yellow gold that surrounding a diamond. I was sooooo excited to find it! As I grabbed it and looked up towards the beach where the entire family stood looking at myself and Sean, I held up her RING and Megan’s sister shouted… “I think he found it!” And the whole family was moved with emotions and tears as i can hear them excited and in awe. So, I handed Sean his wife’s lost but FOUND wedding ring. As Sean headed up the beach he met his wife in the yard and got on one knee to put back on her finger. The precious ring symbolized  his love for her.

To the Stolhs … THIS FIND WAS ANSWERED PRAYERS! Another vacation saved and another happy ending!  Glad to help and have a blessed time on the North Shore!

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Kai and Ohana 🤙🏽🤙🏽
