Gold wedding band lost in Florida, Ft. Myers tall grass – Found!

from Marco Island (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-239-500-7464

Received a call from a gentleman in Ft. Myers (12/8/2018) who reported having recently lost his gold wedding band while washing his dogs in the garden.  The soapy water had allowed the ring to slip off his finger.  For those of you unfamiliar with Florida grass, its “thick”, very thick.  I arrived to find a small 6′ – 8′ circular enclosure that had been staked off to mark the location, limit traffic, and prevent mowing, etc.  A quick search of this area with the Minelab CTX3030 running a 17″ coil revealed nothing, at which point the search area was expanded.  Within seconds, the audible signal of gold rang true.  With the assistance of a pin-pointer, the ring finally became visible having already worked its way through the thatch all the way to the dirt.  Well, pictures speak volumes and are often better than a thousand words, so let these and the smiles evidence the relief and happiness within…Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas to you all!

If you’ve lost something metal, I’ll find it – call Mark (239)500-RING.

Lost rings found and returned on Del Mar beach

Contact: 1-858-945-0180

August 7, 2015  Here’s one for the books. I was hunting in the dry sand around 15th street in Del Mar on Sunday the 2nd when Mike approached me and asked if I had found his tungsten wedding band. I was hunting right in the area where he had lost it the previous day during an outing with his family. I told him I had not, but would be happy to look for it. I had been hunting all morning so I could only put in another 30 minutes or so before I had to head home. I got his information and told him I’d look for it the next day. Well the next morning I found it a couple hours after arriving at the beach. Mike was surfing that day and actually met me on the beach before I started my search but I couldn’t find him before I had to leave so I texted him with the good news and we agreed to meet the next day. Now here’s where it gets good. On Tuesday morning I receive a text from Mike. He has a high fever and asks if I can hang on for a couple days until he feels better. Wednesday afternoon I receive a text and he asks if we can meet on Thursday. Unfortunately I can’t meet that day but Friday will work, he agrees. Later that day I get another text and he tells me he was talking to his sister in law Dianna about my finding his ring and she tells him that she had lost hers as well, wading in the water and wanted to know if I had come across it. She sent him a picture and he forwarded it. I HAVE IT!! I found it the day I met Mike. It’s a big beautiful silver and turquoise number. So, cut to the chase, Friday morning I return both rings to Mike. I gotta tell ya, that was a thrill. His 10 year anniversary is coming up and he was really happy to have his ring back. Congratulations Mike. Thanks for the nice reward and I hope to see you on the beach again sometime (Not wearing your ring!!).  He’ll be mailing Dianna’s ring back to her, I’m hoping to get a picture from her.

Diamond Wedding Ring lost and returned on Wind N Sea beach

from Del Mar (California, United States)
Contact: 1-858-945-0180

 

So we’ve all heard this story before,  The little family outing on the beach, Mom takes off her wedding ring to apply sunscreen on the Kid. She puts the ring on a towel to keep it safe and the rest is history. Well that’s Ryan and Fadras story. The ring was lost at Wind N Sea beach in a little cove in the dry sand. I met Ryan after he got off work on Monday, April 6th right around sunset. He was a little skeptical that we were going to find it and so was I because it was hunted two nights before by a very reputable detectorist. But we did find it. It was about 10 inches down and I needed to use my pin pointer because it gave a very weak signal. When I pulled it out of the hole and put it in Ryans hand he was totally amazed. He really enjoyed seeing the search process in action and was very grateful. After reuniting Fadra with her ring, he snapped these pics and sent them to me. Thanks guys for the nice reward. I hope your future visits to the beach result in much more fun and a lot less stress:)

Wedding Ring Lost for 3 Months Recovered – Calgary

Bruce called me 3 months ago November 2014, it was a nippy winter day, he had taken his young dog for a walk in the large sports field by his home and lost his wedding ring.   Unfortunately the large puppy had a mind of it’s own, he had not been trained yet, making a pleasant walk in the snow a bit of a challenge.   During the walk Bruce had played with the pup by getting down and rough housing with him in the snow, he had not done this once but many times during the walk.

One thing most of us forget and so did Bruce is that our fingers shrink when they get cold and wedding rings that have been on for decades now have a chance to slip off.

When I arrived,  we went over to the sports field and he directed me through the path they had walked and each stop they had made.  I scanned the area on the path and each side of the route they had taken, as well as, around each area they had stopped to play.  There was about a foot of snow that day but many tracks in the snow as this was a popular place to go for walks.   After 2 hours I still had not located the ring and Bruce was now showing signs of Hypothermia ( he wasn’t dressed for the weather) called off the search accepting that the ring was gone forever.
I told Bruce I wasn’t convinced we had searched enough of the area as the sports field is very large and we might have missed it by only a few inches.  I advised Bruce I would be back to search further and let him know if I found the ring.

Every time we had a break in the cold weather I would go out and search more of the field.  After 3 further visits and several hours searching, each time using a grid  and utilizing parking cones to delineate each section. I recovered Bruce’s wedding ring far from the area we were initially looking?  I took it directly over to Bruce’s home where I presented him with his lost 18k gold wedding band, engraved with their names and wedding date of 1977.  Bruce was extremely grateful, he didn’t know I was still searching for it and assumed it lost forever.   Another happy recipient of the Ring Finders Service.

Gold Class Ring Found and Returned

from Del Mar (California, United States)
Contact: 1-858-945-0180

So, around the middle of March last year (2014) I was hunting for coins in a ball field at a local middle school and found this beautiful high school gold class ring.  It had initials on the inside and was dated 1988.  I left a message with the school’s alumni lost ring site with the description and my contact information.  I never heard anything back but I hung onto the ring.  A couple weeks ago my son, who graduated in 1987 from the same high school, was visiting from Idaho.  He spotted the ring in my collection and got interested.  He’s involved somehow with the alumni association and said he might be able to track the owner so I gave him the ring and told him to give it a shot.  Well, a couple days later he called and said he found the owner, Kelley, and has since returned it to her through her husband.  It turns out back in 87 she had just gotten the ring and was playing in a powder-puff ball game on that field and had given the ring to her boyfriend for safe keeping…..   Her family actually tried to find it with a metal detector but to no avail.  It was lost forever:)

As you can see from the pic, Kelley’s pretty happy to get it back

RAINY WEDDING RING RECOVERY WHITMIRE SC

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-864-905-0297

Received  an e-mail last week from Michael about finding his wedding band that had been lost 2 summers ago. Michael had lost his ring while throwing a baseball out in the front yard. The ring must have come off his finger when he took his glove off and only noticed it missing while washing his hands. He visually looked in the yard and several days later rented a metal detector with still no success. I started searching 2 areas where the ring could have been lost and after eliminating the garden area, I moved to the front yard and by this time the cold rain started making the search a nasty mess while I dug several targets that could be the ring.  I searched for 2 1/2 hours with no success but finally went outside the search area and found his ring  sitting on the surface just waiting to be found. Michael was blown away by the location and that it was actually found. Thank you Michael for the generous reward and the coffee that your mom made for me. I like meeting good people and sharing in finding that lost item for them that means so much to them.  Michaels 5mm ring vdi # was 38

Lost Gold and Diamond Ring Recovered in Collingwood – Calgary

from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

Over the holidays, I received a call from Kevin who had lost his gold wedding ring in the snow, while he was playing with his kids.  I got the directions to his home and he met me at the door.  Kevin explained how his ring was custom made and is one of a kind as the jeweler has retired and it can’t be duplicated.  So, besides the obvious emotional attachment to this ring there is also the fact that it just isn’t replaceable at any cost.

When he showed me the area I thought that it would be quite easy as it was a fenced back yard with no bushes but had a hill that they use for sledding.  I had a different opinion though as soon as I turned my detector on, my Garrett ATPro went wild from some source of EMI ( electrical magnetic interference).  I determined that there was a shallow electric supply running through the search area from the house to the garage.  I reduced the sensitivity to half and changed frequencies then re- ground balanced and it seemed to the trick.  Now that problem was resolved I was off to start my grid search. I surveyed the area for a good starting point which only took a minute as the area was relatively rectangular and I wanted to start at the base of the hill.  I expected the VDI to be in the range of 45 to 65 depending on the mass of the gold ring so I kept iron discrimination to 35 and used Pro  Mode Coin along with iron Audio On.

I started my grid search and after 3 passes of the coil got a signal, the VDI read 45.  I couldn’t get that lucky I thought, I scratched through the packed snow and out popped this amazing ring.  I am so happy that I was able to find it for Kevin and as you can see he was relieved and thrilled to get it back again.  Kevin said, the recovery of this very special ring made their holiday season for them.

Thank you for trusting The Ring Finders and me to recover your valuable ring for you Kevin.

Kevin was thrilled to have his ring recovered

Lost 22K Gold Ring Recovered — in Calgary

from Calgary (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

I was out looking in a snow bank for some keys for a couple the other night, when I got a call from Dan.  He said he would like to rent a metal detector to find the ring he had lost earlier in front of his house.  I advised that I could come over and find it for him and save him the frustration of learning to use a detector and failing to find the ring due to a lack of experience.  He agreed, and as soon as I finished recovering the keys I rushed over to Dan’s house.  Dan and his brother came out to show me where they thought it was lost so I setup to grid the area. My first pass I deliberately went further along than they had indicated, at which point I was corrected and told that it wouldn’t be there and I should walk back toward the two fellows.  I asked them if they would like me to dig the signal I just got or ignore it, because it sounds pretty good.  Dan says sure if you want to, so I did and up popped the 22k Men’s Gold Ring.

Not where they expected it to be

Lost items are rarely in the spot you think you lost them, as your searching you kick things around and then you call The Ring Finders and we think out of the box as well as using top notch equipment to recover your valuables.  Dan and his brother if they had of rented a detector would not have found this ring because it was out of their perceived search area.  Why Rent when an Expert can locate your valuables for you.

Dan was a very happy man and couldn’t believe I had recovered it in only 10 minutes.

LEAF it too the Ring Finders to get that ring back on your finger

I was called out to find a ring for a gentleman who had lost it in his yard while picking up and bagging leaves.  Yes , its autumn and when I got there he had may bags of leaves lined up beside the garage.  Martin explained, that he had been working in the yard doing his leaf cleanup and may have lost the ring in the front yard, backyard or possibly it may have even managed to get into one of the bags which he had already gone through but didn’t see it.

I suggested we start with the bags at which point he grabbed one closest to him and I started to scan it, I asked him if there was any chance that he had added foil or other metal to the bags and he responded he didn’t think so.  So I announced that I had just heard a strong signal so we open the bag and I went in with my Probe which also sounded off.  We emptied the bag and retrieved the Gold Ring he had received on his 18th birthday form his Mom many years ago.  This was one of the fastest ring finds so far but had the potential to be much longer if I had started with the yard, sometimes luck is on our side.

As you can see he was extremely happy to get his treasured ring back and agreed to have it sized so as not to lose it again.
Thank you Martin for the kind reward.

Found..Lost Gold Ring at English Bay Beach, Vancouver BC

Last night I went to sleep at 11:45 pm and I was planning on getting up at 3:am to go to the beach with a friend and do a beach hunt.

Minutes before midnight I awake to a phone call…911… someone lost their ring at the beach and wanted to know if I could help find it.

After taking notes of the location the ring was lost at I decide to search for it ASAP so that no one else would find it before I got there.

I get up and make a coffee and get ready to hit the road…The great thing was that it was the same beach my friend and I were going to at 4 am that morning. I wasn’t going to wake him up early so I went there to find the ring then come back to pick up my friend.

I get to the beach and I can see hand prints all over the sand in the area the ring was lost at, I know that I’m in the right spot, so I start my search.

After 10 minutes of searching in the dark at around 1:15 am I get a loud strong signal. I sink the scoop into the nice dry sand and I watched the sand sift through the scoop until I could see the beautiful color of gold!

After I returned home from the beach I had 30 minutes to make another coffee and get ready to pick up my friend and head back out to the beach.

I love my job!
