While at home for the weekend and looking for something to do with my wife,I received a call from a woman asking for my help finding her husbands wedding ring? She explained that earlier in the week they had gone to a local farm field to have family pictures taken among the sunflowers in the field. Unfortunately while picking their child up during different shots her husbands wedding ring had fallen off. The good thing is they had the pictures of his ring on and then showing it off so they knew it was there somewhere in the field.
So I asked my wife if she would like to come along to the sunflower field which was only a few miles from our home for the recovery? Of course she was looking to get out and that sounded great so we were on our way! Before you knew it we were there and met up with the woman and her daughter who had secured permission with the owners to search the area. Walking out to the area I was not feeling too good about it as it was thick tall sunflowers,very hot and buggy. Fortunately from the photos she knew the area they were in and some of the growth was knocked down and picked there. The woman began talking and I began my search it wasn’t long before I got a nice gold signal from my White’s V3i metal detector and as I moved some weeds I could see the ring!
Another successful recovery! Another happy customer!
While at work in Jersey City I received a call from a woman not too far away over in Westfield asking if I could possibly help find her husbands wedding ring that he had lost the previous weekend in her parents backyard while attending a party? Well since Westfield as basically on my way home down the turnpike I told her I could stop by later today after work. Arriving at the property and getting information as to where he thought it could been lost in the faily large yard I began my grid pattern search with my White’s V3i metal detector. Unfortunately the yard had numerous buried metal drainage grates and pipes which could easily mask the gold ring if I did swing the searchcoil over it. Fortunately I had decided to use a small coil which enabled me to still work the area by required careful listening for that one difference in signals from the detector. After about 45 minutes I heard what I was waiting for and as I looked down I could see the ring in the grass just waiting for me!
I left the ring there and called her out to show me the area again and asked if maybe right there was the area pointing to the ring in the grass. She began laughing with amazement and couldn’t wait to call her husband with the good news at work.Another happy customer!
Now that’s a beautiful sight! Searching a section of beach for a mens wedding ring lost over 2 weeks ago and I get a screamer hit from my White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector. I look down and there’s the ring washed out of the sand laying on the surface just waiting for me! You don’t see that often,Awesome!
I received a call from a woman whose husband had lost it in the sand while playing with the kids weeks before and thought it was lost forever. But they had seen my Facebook page NJ Lost Ring Finder and figured why not give it a try? They were very happy they did! I met up with the very grateful couple a few days later for the return. Another happy customer! Recovery #122
I received a message on my Facebook page NJ Lost Ring Finder from a woman whose husband had lost his gold wedding ring on the beach while they were watching an event. She knew the general area that they were in and knew that he had it on while they were there but when they got home it was gone? I decided to head down the next morning for a couple hours after work and get a search in before the crowds would start to arrive. Arriving at the entrance way to the beach I looked out and seen the area she had described and figured I would start there. Some time had passed and after digging a bunch of deep targets with my White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector I was still without the ring and the crowds had started filling the area so I had to quit for the day. The following day I arrived a little before sunrise to give it another try and expand the search area as I thought maybe the beach grading tractor had possibly moved the ring further on the beach. Well my theory was right as approached the next block down I received a signal deep in the sand and after a few scoops I had the ring! The tractor must of not only moved the ring but also plowed it deeper in the sand. I made a call to the very amazed and happy wife and was able to meet with her father on my way home. Another great day! Recovery#121
I received a message from a girl whose mom had lost her diamond wedding on the beach the day before. Although they were unable to meet me the following day at the beach,she was able to give me some details as to the approximate location according to landmarks.
I arrived early the next morning just before sunrise and noticed a lifeguard as she described and began my grid pattern search of the area with my metal detector. Although I searched the area and beyond for hours I had no luck locating the ring but did find a large amount of coins and trash items so I was confident that another detectorist had not found it before me but had to call it a day as the daily crowds were arriving. I messaged them letting them know I did not find it but would return the next day to try again,
I decided for the second search I would use my new White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector which not only detects deeper in the sand but also is excellent at recovery smaller items or offset items like a ring on its side in the sand. I searched most of the area as the day before and found more coins and trash but no ring so I started searching the way off the beach to the stairs and started digging more signals. Just as I was going to throw in the towel one of those signals turned out to be her diamond ring! When I called and told her I found it up by the stairs she was surprised as she really thought it was in the other area but you just never know? We meant a couple hours later for a very happy and thankful return. Another happy customer! Another great day of metal detecting!
I received a call from a guy asking for my help finding his gold ring he had lost while playing volleyball with friends a few days ago. I was able to meet with him a couple hours later at the park and he showed me the court he had been playing on. He had been on both sides of the net so I began my grid pattern search on one with my White’s V3i and 6 x 10″ coil which is perfect for these types of hunts. Having no luck on the first side I moved onto the other and about half way through I got a nice signal in the gold range. I scooped up some sand and there was his ring! He was watching with his family and when I held it up stating I found it they were very happy and grateful for my help thanking me and saying how much the ring had meant to him. Another great recovery! Recovery # 119
I received a call from a woman asking if I could help find her husbands wedding ring in their garden? He had been working in the yard for the past few days and noticed that his gold wedding ring of 58 years was no longer on his finger and he was pretty upset about the loss. I drove up the following day meeting the couple on their lawn and we walked around to the backyard where there were multiple boxed in 10 x 20 gardens and large compost pile behind the garage. Although it was a nice backyard I felt it wasn’t going to be an easy hunt with all the growth and area size.I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector with a small 4 x 6″ search coil to get in between the flowers and plants. He felt the most likely area was the compost pile so that’s where I started but after a half hours search I had no luck? Next we moved onto the garden boxes one at a time and still no luck. Finally I started searching the paths between the boxes and leading to the compost pile when I got a good hit from my detector. Looking down I brushed some weeds aside and there was is ring! It took a while and I could tell they were losing hope but when I said I found it,the smiles came right to there faces! Another happy customer! Another great day! Recovery #118
I received a call from a from a guy who while playing volleyball had lost his wedding ring and was hoping that I could find it as he had just gotten married last November and was pretty upset having to tell his wife he had lost his ring. He told me that as he jumped up and hit the ball that his friend had seen something fly out of his hand. Immediately he looked at his hand and realized that it was his ring. The good thing was that he knew the general direction that the ring had gone. He showed me the area on the side of the net where he was and was confident that it landed on that same side. After searching the area and still no ring I started wondering onto the other side and said he really doesn’t think it went that far but I continued to search there based on my own experience with recoveries. After about 10 more minutes I got a nice signal from my Whites V3i metal detector,looked down in the grass and there was the ring slightly hidden in the grass. I reached down and held it up in the air and said there it is! He was amazed that it had traveled so far and very happy to have it back on his hand before his wife found out Lol! Another happy customer! Another great day!
I received a call from a woman who had contacted the Avalon Police department in hopes they could help her to locate her lost diamond and gold earring she had lost on the beach entrance way the night before. They passed on my information to her as I had done many successful recoveries on the beaches over the years. We agreed that we would meet the following morning at the entrance. On site she explained how she had lost it while taking pictures with girlfriends and was sure the earring was in a small area of the sand. I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector with a small coil for the job as it is very sensitive to smaller items like earrings. I was able to use her matching earring to compare the audio/visual signal on my detector and after a couple of minutes of searching I found the missing earring in the sand. The beautiful earrings were once again a set and a very happy customer was able to enjoy the rest of her vacation with friends.
I received a call from guy who had lost his wedding ring on the beach after he had put the ring in his hat for safe keeping while swimming but forgot about it as he went to put the hat back on. Although he realized his mistake immediately the ring disappeared into the sand. Doing a quick search on the internet got him my information and I arrived at the beach about an hour later. Still having his beach chair in the same location he move it and I began my search. After a quick minute my detector rang out and the ring was in my scoop! A very relieved couple were able to go back enjoying their vacation with the family!
