Found Ring Returned: Hyannis, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

October 4, 2022

Hurricane Ian had been making its way northward keeping the Hyannis sky dark and misty. But a daily walk through the woods Avery and Bigelow made their way peacefully until an exposed root tripped up Avery. In the incident a ring left Avery’s finger an landed in the overgrowth along the pathway. The ring was Avery’s mother’s and is only one of very few pieces of jewelry that Avery wears.

Looking for help via a rental business that rented a detector. A call to J&E Enterprise was answered and Avery was given a phone number and was told Rick is the one that could help. Unfortunately, I was at a doctor’s appointment and did not return the call for a couple of hours. In that time Avery had rented a detector and was back in the woods searching for the lost ring. Rentals usually do not come with detailed operation notes. Most detectors take several hours of practice before one can become proficient in its use. Even locating an object on the surface can be a daunting task.

When I returned the call, Avery was in the woods and said she would welcome any help I may give. About a half hour later I was involved in the search. The area was littered with very old and rusty cans, and other debris. Many trash signals and not one that was worth digging or keeping. After two hours we left the woods as the sun had set, it was time to give up for the evening.

The next morning, I replace my mid-sized detector coil with a small 4-inch coil that would allow better separation of the pieces of trash. Another hour past and I was re-searching over the original area Avery had heard a signal the night before. I was able to determine several distinct targets, all were too deep to be the ring but might be masking a small ring. Therefore, I started to remove each target one by one and had a total of 4 shotgun cases and a long rifle casing. But no ring. As another aid, I tossed a similar ring with a visible string attached to see just how far a ring might travel and then restarted searching from that point.

Oddly enough, I was very close to the area the four shotgun shells were dug. Ah, another signal this time about two inches away, with a detector indicating a surface target. I reached down, moved a few leaves and there the ring was laying, but not for long. I picked it up, turned off the detector and headed back to the car before the rain intensified. A call to Avery and we made a meeting point. Twenty minutes later her ring had been placed on the pinkie finger and there was a wonderful smile on Avery’s face, not to say the one on my face was any less wonderful.

It is always amazing how an object is lost and in the case of a lost ring in the woods that a person can travel miles, search a vast area full of trash, put a 4-inch coil over a 1-inch ring, hear a signal among all others, then make a conscious decision to stop detecting and do a visual search to ultimately find the ring. Knowing one’s equipment, persistence and determination and yes, luck all helped in making the loss into A Happy Ending.

Yes there is such a thing called TheRingFinders… A global directory with over 560 members helping people find what they thought was lost forever…I was on a ring search when I got a text message asking for help in another lake not far from where I was searching. After I made the recovery for these people I reached out and talk to the person who had lost his white gold wedding band in a lake. I told him it was crucial that we attack it quickly because so many people now hunt these lakes and it won’t take long before somebody scoops it up. I came to learn the ring had been lost for eight days, not a great thing to hear.

However I responded quickly and went directly to that lake, unfortunately they had closed the parking lot and I could not get in, I tried for many hours but they kept turning me away. I found a parking spot approximately 2 km from the lake and decided to walk in, the only thing I didn’t know was it was another 2 1/2 km to the lake once I got to the gate entry.

Oh well a long walk and I was very hopeful that I could find it for him! After a long hot walk I was looking so forward to going into that beautiful water and within 25 minutes I found his white gold wedding band that had been there for eight days… I was so happy to be able to continue that story after finding out he was only married in January and you can only imagine how much that meant to him to get it back.

January 2022 Andy reached out to me asking for assistance in searching his home for his fiancé’s lost engagement ring. He explained that a few weeks prior his fiancé had taken her engagement ring off in the front room during dinner. Later that evening when she was getting ready for bed she realized her ring was not on her finger and remembered having taken it off during dinner. No problem she thought, I’ll get it in the morning. Well morning came and the ring was not on the table where she thought she had left it. Of course a full on search through the house was performed by the couple but unfortunately no diamond engagement ring was found. With disappointment they made their way back to the Shane Co. jewelers to consider their options. Well one of the options they had no idea even existed was shared with them by one of the amazing jewelers. The lady told them there was a local guy the SeattleRingHunter that had found one of their previous clients rings lost in a home and that they should give him a call.

After our phone conversation Andy was setup with some additional search tips and an in house search scheduled a few days later. 

After arriving at Andy’s home it was apparent that this was a small space but very warm and tidy. Never be deceived rings are small and can find some of the most interesting hiding places.

Come along with us to see this search in progress and its exciting conclusion. We are happy the very same ring Andy proposed to his lovely fiancé with was recovered and will be with them on their up and coming wedding day.

I got a call from a young man who needed help searching his parents yard for his lost wedding band, sadly he lost his ring the day he got married, at the reception in his parents backyard. His friend came over the next day to help search for two hours with a metal detector, but no luck. After asking my questions I decided to head out the next morning to Abbotsford which is over an hour drive to help this young man find his wedding band. He was working that day so I met his mother and she showed me the area where he was in the yard which is pretty much the whole backyard, I set up my gridlines and began to search, it was a hot day and after an hour I found his beautiful gold wedding band that was on his hand less than a half a day.

I gotta say I get just excited to find what I’m looking for as the person I find it for, I can understand how painful that must’ve been losing something so sentimental that was just giving to you that day from a person you’re gonna spend the rest your life with that you love very much.

It was an honour to be able to help continue that story for him, as his story was just beginning! I have to say he was not the first and he will not be the last to lose his ring on his wedding day.

Congratulations to to you and your bride may you have a very long and healthy & happy life together!

Lost ring – Dauphin Island, Alabama

Have I mentioned lately that jewelry recoveries are my favorite part of my metal detecting obsession ??

I saw a Facebook post yesterday evening by someone saying his buddy had lost a wedding band “somewhere between the pool and down by the beach”. It sounded like a long shot but I’m always up for a challenge ! I went down this morning and spoke with Ryan, who had lost the ring, and he wasn’t exactly sure where it had slipped off his finger. He walked me down to the water at one of my favorite detecting spots where, coincidentally,  I had just spent about 2 hours detecting yesterday. Ryan explained that he had waded out about waste deep and the sat in the water to watch the sunset Friday night. He was VERY sure about where he had put his bag down and waded out, but that was about it.

I waded in with not a whole lot of confidence…… more like a wing and a prayer. Ok, LOTS of prayer. I then quickly realized I had not brought my waterproof headphones, I didn’t have my long pants on and there was jellyfish and mucky water, and I had even forgotten to ask if the ring was silver, gold, tungsten or stainless. 😳 Ryan was busy at work at a nearby breakfast buffet so I didn’t want to go bother him again.

Much to my suprise, and probably even more to Ryan’s, it wasn’t 30 min later when I came walking back in to the restaurant holding his beautiful ring.  I had to scoop 4 fishing weights, 14 pull tabs, 2 bottle caps and a penny first, but there was no mistaking the sweet sound of that shallow gold signal when I hit it about 10 or so yards to the right of where he thought he had been, and just at the edge of how deep I could go in without my waterproof headphones.

As always, the generous reward offered was declined. Doing what I love and seeing the look on Ryan’s face was reward enough !


Ring Lost at Ribfest found. Lake in the Hills, Il.

  • from Rockford (Illinois, United States)

The Morning of July 11th, 2022 I received a voicemail from Dana. She said that her husband had lost his wedding ring the night before at the annual Ribfest near their home. She said that the crews were there taking down the tables and chairs but they had already secured permission from the crew and the local police to conduct a search. I brought along my wife Jennifer since the ring was lost in such a large area, I figured 2 people could cover more ground much quicker.  After meeting up with Dana and her husband John we grabbed our gear and the 4 of us walked over to the area where John had been sitting during the festivities. John gave us a rough outline of the areas where he had moved around to during his time there and where he had been sitting most of that time. I decided to start at the farthest point and work back towards where John had been sitting,  while that’s where Jen started. John and Dana said they were going to walk back home and to call or text them if we found it. Before I could get to the far end Jen said she had a strong, shallow signal, so I went back to help her retrieve it from the hard packed dirt. Bam! Jen’s first signal! Right where John said he was sitting was John’s ring! In less than 10 minutes I sent Dana a text with pictures saying “Good news!!”

Lost a ring?

Don’t wait to call!

Peter was sitting on the beach in Ocean City, NJ when he decided to take his wedding band off and place it in the cup holder of his beach chair. He packed up his belongings later in the day, forgetting that the ring was still in the cup holder. He realized it was missing after he got home and gave me a call. Shortly after a quick grid search with my metal detector, I got the signal for the white gold wedding band and it was back on finger in no time.

Wedding Ring Lost on Beach for Four Days .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Saved and Returned to Owner

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)












TIMING IS IMPORTANT .. call ASAP .. Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-2136  ..I Will Answer the Call.

*** Daniel called asking for help to find a white gold wedding band that he lost in the sand 4 days ago. The area of the loss was a very populated part of Newport Beach, CA. I gave him a short explanation of our chances to recover the ring as that beach is heavily hunted area by recreational metal detectors and it is also sifted by the city Beach King machine.

He understood and I said I could meet him at the location. This was the last day he would be able to show me the general location. He showed me a 20’x20’ area. I setup my metal detector and decided to start at the center. A half dozens swings of my detector and my first signal was Daniel’s white gold wedding ring that had been hiding in the sand at the towel line. 

Both Daniel and his wife were very happy and amazed that his ring was found so fast after so many days. I know all the possibilities that the ring could have easily been found or picked up by the cleaning machines. This is just another case to stay positive and give it try..

Lost Platinum Wedding Band at Lake Ocoee…Found

  • from Chattanooga (Tennessee, United States)

I was contacted by Phillip on November 29 about his ring that he lost at a park on Lake Ocoee in Eastern Tennessee.  He had lost his platinum wedding band on the Saturday before while at a roadside park. He was brushing the leaves off a tablecloth when his ring came off. He felt it come off, but wasn’t sure which direction it went.  They had been married for only about two years, so they were both just a little upset.  He and his wife searched the area until well after dark to no avail. He had even gone to a local sporting goods store and bought a low cost metal detector, and went back on Sunday morning.  He quickly found out there were a lot of targets in the ground there and was quite overwhelming! After that they did a Google search and popped up. He works for the local Volkswagen plant here and couldn’t get off until the coming weekend, so I met him there the next Saturday morning on December 4th.  The leaves are all pretty much gone from the trees now and on the ground, so I knew the ring wouldn’t have been visible to someone walking by. The picnic table was at the bottom of a steep hill and the hill by the table was covered with leaves that were nearly a foot deep.  I searched that area first and found the usual pull tabs and foil that are common at parks. There is a paved walk right next to the table, so I searched the ground next to the walk, across from the table.  Just as I was about halfway past the table I got an interesting signal.  It was obviously trash, but mixed in there was a good strong signal.  I slowed down my sweep and used the short wiggle motion to help identify the target I was hearing.  It was the low tone that I was expecting for platinum, and I was getting a consistent 12:09 on my CTX.  I brushed away the layer of leaves with my foot and immediately saw it.  Phillip was a little distance away with his metal detector and didn’t notice that I had found it. So I started taking pictures of it right where it lay. I picked it up and pretended to continue my search for a little while.  After about another ten minutes I quit searching and walked over to where he was and started asking more questions. He assumed that I hadn’t found it yet, so he was quite surprised when I held up my hand and showed him the ring!  The ring was less than a foot from the walk directly adjacent the table.  The actual search time was about twenty minutes.
