Lost Engagement Ring Found in North Spokane WA

from Spokane (Washington, United States)

Today this lady named Karen decided to follow a sign from God and take a leap of faith by contacting me from the information I had posted on Craigslist. Her ring was lost over the Christmas weekend.  However, Karen did not know where it was lost or the actual day it came off. Her dear friend was trying to help her by placing an ad on the Spokane Craigslist. I was watching the lost and found section while I was on vacation and saw her ring ad pop up on the top a few times. I was also re-posting my ring finders ad as well.  These two action created a spark of hope in Karen’s heart. She called me today with only the strength to get out the message that she left and say hello when I called back. Her tears made this Ring Finder head out in 2o degree weather with 2 feet of snow on the ground  to search for a ring that may not be there. So I dawned my detectives hat when I got there and started questioning her about everything that happened that weekend. There were three spots of interest . So after searching the front drive way where she got out of her car, the walk way to the stairs and the stairs. I headed to the back yard where she had thrown a few snow balls with both her left and right hands. To give you an idea of the snow conditions, I had two hands on my metal detector to be able to move it through the  new snow layer so I could be closer to the snow that had frozen last week. The ring was under a foot of snow. It rang up as a 17 and gave me the biggest thrill to date seeing the out line of her ring in the frozen snow. I got the signal and told her fiance John that this could be it and in fact it was. After showing John the ring and giving him a hug, Karen had come back outside and saw us hugging. I quickly moved to the porch to give her the ring but her week of looking for the ring came full circle and emotions almost brought her to her knees. This was a really good new years day for both Karen and my self. God is alive in Spokane, Washington you only need to have faith that His Promise will come true. Happy New Year Ring Finders Family.

 

 

Diamond Engagement FOUND after Snorkeling in Hilo, Big Island, Hawaii!

from Big Island (Hawaii, United States)

“Rae of Hope”

We got the call to go to Hilo to find a lost diamond engagement ring on a recent, rainy afternoon. It’s an two hour drive away and the ring was lost at Onekahakaha Beach Park in the public swimming area.

Raelyn met us in the parking lot with her young son and we quickly got the full story. She had tried snorkeling for the first time ever in the large but protected, rock-and-sandy bay. After only a few minutes of putting on her mask and snorkel, she stood up in chest deep water and realized that her precious diamond engagement ring was missing from her finger. It had definitely been on as she’d gotten in the water as, ironically, she’d removed her gold wedding band so as not to lose it!

Finding a lost diamond engagement with Big Island Metal Detecting

A happy moment after finding Raelyn’s lost engagement ring at Onekahakaha Beach Park, Hilo, Big Island, Hawaii.

We retraced her steps into the water along a small sea wall which jutted into the shallow bay with little steps down either side. She showed us how she’d walked into the deeper water, put on her mask and paddled around into deeper water. As the tide was at its lowest, we decided to start at the deepest point she’d been, which was now just over waist deep. As we searched, Raelyn and her son swam and watched us carefully metal detect the sandy bottom. Every once in a while we’d ask her to try and remember exactly where she’d been, or if we were still in the same area she remembered being in.

WATCH THE VIDEO!

Several times when retracing her movements she mentioned swimming away from shallow, brown stones. I thought it was an interesting thing to remember and asked her to show me where the brown stones were. Just near the entrance of the swimming area, where she’d first put on her mask, was a small field of algae-covered, cannonball-sized stones. I decided to try my luck and started searching the area using a newly purchased Minelab Excalibur. Sylvie faithfully continued hunting the deeper water with her Garrett SeaHunter. Looking over at Raelyn, she was now sitting on the nearby sand talking to her husband on the phone while her son played in the shallows. A glint of white gold peaked out from under the sand in about knee-deep water as I turned back. I’d found it!

A beautiful, recovered diamond engagement ring from the shallow waters of Onekahakaha Beach Park, Hilo, Hawaii, found by Brent and Sylvie Madison of Big Island Metal Detecting.

 

I signaled Sylvie and Raelyn then turned on the GoPro to film it coming out of the sand, “live”! Both ladies rushed over and I pulled the ring out out of the sand and handed it to a jubilant Raelyn! She held her hands over her mouth for a moment in disbelief. “I’d just told my husband on the phone I didn’t think we’d find it!”

There IS always a ray of hope when looking for lost rings – and we’re so happy when it shines down on our clients.

Diamond Ring Found at Kelly Beach, Bonnet Shores, RI

from Woonsocket (Rhode Island, United States)
Contact: 1-401-225-5770

After locating me through The Ring Finders’ website, Paul contacted me a few days ago about a ring he had lost while swimming at a Rhode Island beach.  This ring was precious to Paul.  It was a beautiful gold ring with five diamonds that his mom had given to his dad on their 25th wedding anniversary–the diamonds signified their five children.  Before Paul’s dad passed away 11 1/2 years ago, he gave the ring to Paul, the oldest of the five children, who never took it off.  That is until 12 days ago when he lost it while swimming.  I met Paul at the beach early this morning when I could take advantage of the low tide.  Within 20 minutes, in knee-deep water, I located the ring about 8 inches deep in the sand.  Paul couldn’t believe it!  He was thrilled to have this special ring returned to him.  Thank you Paul for this opportunity.  I was so happy to be able to return this keepsake to you and your family!
