A young couple who became engaged on Christmas were completely devastated after an evening walk in North Toronto went horribly bad . Snow had accumulated in their neighborhood to about 6 inches buy that evening. The couple explained while brushing snow off with her hand the young bride to be felt her diamond engagement ring fly off and into the surrounding snow banks which were about 1 foot deep. Hours of searching on hand and knee digging through the cold snow was all in vain and they couldn’t find the precious ring. The young lady could not hold back the tears and the couple were devastated knowing they had no insurance on the expensive ring.

A very common thing for newly engaged young couples! I will often encourage them to add these precious items to their home insurance and also have a jeweler inscribe a name and possibly contact info inside the valuable ring. Most jewelers can do this for a very nominal fee and it is well worth the cost if found by someone else.

After a couple of days the husband in desperation started googling lost Rings and of course came across The Ring Finders web site and my contact info.
Once the young man contacted me I immediately made my way there. Just coming off a successful under water ring find in the Niagara region of Ontario I felt time was of the essence for this recovery.

Once a ring has been lost in a public area especially along a city sidewalk, the clock is ticking down and its only a matter of time before someone else eventually finds it .

Unfortunately I have arrived to the same type of scenario where the person who out of desperation posted signs that a ring was lost in the area. I’ve also seen posted signs with a photo of the ring, detailed description of it and where it was lost! The sign had a diagram of almost the precise location to where the ring is laying. Basically advertising to the not so honest among us FREE RING CHECK HERE👇.

Not a good idea at all! Luckily this couple found Ring Finders onliner. Once I arrived we had one big problem, the electrical transformer box and it was not much more than 3 feet away from where the ring came off in the snow. When it comes to any metal detector if you’re too close to electronic interference you will hear it big time on your detector. However a neighborhood transformer is the worst kind of interference possible. Being so close to such a large amount of interference will cause multiple sounds even at the lowest set discrimination on the detector. Truthful the detector sounded like a Las Vegas slot machine hitting the jackpot on New Year’s eve. I was worried!

However myself and many other Ring Finders on this site are highly skilled and trained having experience with this type of situation. A trained ear and knowing the sound of gold amongst all those bad signals on a is key in this type of recovery.
I grid the area quickly and only after a few minutes in between all the chaotic chirps, beeps and tones a familiar tone coming from beneath snow. Jackpot!

The white flakes and tears kept falling for a few minutes after I pulled out the georgous ring. However this time they were tears of joy and the young couple were again reunited with their beautiful diamond ring.

Ring lost during proposal in Cape May, NJ FOUND!

from Cape May (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-609-780-4525

Received a call from Jordan on December 21st, 2019. Jordan was in the process of proposing to his girlfriend on Sunset Beach in Cape May when the engagement ring evidently fell out of the box unbeknownst to him. After gathering a few details from Jordan, we setup a time to meet and I headed over to Sunset Beach. I arrived before Jordan and his father so I decided to take a walk down to see if I could figure out where they may have been. Sure enough the tell tale signs were there so I began searching where I believed they may have been. After a brief 10 minute search I had the ring in my scoop! I went back to the parking lot and awaited Jordans arrival. He and his father were in total shock and disbelief that I had already recovered the ring before they arrived. After reuniting Jordan with the ring his father explained how much of a roller coaster of emotions the day had been. All recoveries are emotional for the clients, for many different reasons, and no two are ever the same, but sometimes there are the ones that really make providing this service warm your heart. This is one of them. I attached the reuniting video but it is a bit dark.

Here are some comments and reviews of service from Jordan and his family:

Jordan Page “Hey Jeff! This is me and my fiance with our recovered ring she loves it and we are so thankful to you. You changed what was one of the worst tragedies into one of those great moments you rember for a lifetime. You reaffirmed my faith in humanity and decency. You are truely a hero! To come out at 10pm on a sat night in winter is unbelievable enough let alone. Your integrity in finding the ring before we got there and holding it shows how much of an amazing honest person you are and that is rare these days. We and I personally can not thank you enough the joy even as I write this is overflowing. Everyone in town has been asking us about it and I’m singing your praises as the savior of our engagement. I got a call from sunset beach gift shop checking in about if we found the ring and I told them how awesome you were. He told me to send him a picture of your card so he can give your info to anyone that needs your services. Thank you so so much.”

Keith Page “First, Jeff, Thank You for finding Jordan’s ring…you are amazing!
You came out on a cold Saturday night and before we even got there, you had the ring, again, thank you…I cannot say it enough!
As a father, knowing what Jordan went through to get to this point and then seeing the video of him on his knee proposing and then his reaction realizing that the ring had fallen out and disappeared into the sand, it brought tears to my eyes for him.
You, the helpful people on the beach, the staff at the Sunset Beach Gift shop, my son’s fiance and her two beautiful children, my wife, all turned an emotional roller coaster of a night into one of the most positive and memorable evenings of our lives.
Thank you again, you really are a good person, you have had a positive impact on everyone’s life that you have helped by helping them find something they lost, please keep doing what you do, it does not go unnoticed.
Our very best to you,
Keith & Karen Page, Jordan and his beautiful family. By the way, Maria said yes!”

Karen Page “There really should be more people like you, Jeff! You don’t just provide a much needed service, you restore people’s faith in others along with restoring their precious items. A truly remarkable thing, and very much appreciated! You Rock!”

Lost ring in Provo Canyon: Found

from Provo (Utah, United States)
Contact: 1-801-420-8485

Maddilyn got engaged one week ago, and she loved her beautiful white gold engagement ring. Yesterday, she went up Provo Canyon  to get some engagement photos behind Mt. Timpanogos. When they finished the photo shoot, she was horrified to find that her ring was gone! Some of the photos showed the ring, but some showed the ring was gone. They searched through the snow, then bought a cheap metal detector and searched some more, but they couldn’t find the lost ring. Last night, Maddilyn’s dad found me on TheRingFinders.com. This afternoon I met Maddilyn and her finance near the canyon. We drove up past Sundance ski resort where I started my search. It took 20 or 30 minutes, but I found the ring buried in the new snow! Hopefully, that one cold night the ring spent in the canyon will be the last night it ever spends away from her!

Lost Men’s Gold Wedding Band Recovered in Sunny Isles Beach, FL

from Sunny Isles Beach (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-312-882-9795

   

I was on my way to the grocery store when I received a call from Jerrica – her husband had just lost his gold wedding band in the Atlantic Ocean off of Sunny Isles Beach, FL. I did a quick U-turn for home, changed into my water detecting outfit and grabbed my CTX 3030.

They made a smart move by coming to the Ring Finders website and finding me so quickly. Because they stayed put and were patient, they were able to accurately point me toward the water right where they believed the ring came off. They were able to describe it and remembered feeling it come loose in the water.

I expected a long hunt because it is a very popular stretch of beach in Sunny Isles Beach, FL – lots of tourists and a fair amount of aluminum trash too. But to my surprise (and theirs), the ring popped up in my first target signal.

I loved seeing the excitement from them and their friends who were shocked at how quickly it was found. All because they had the patience and quick thinking to call right away!

Eagle Harbor Bainbridge WA Underwater Wedding Ring Recovery

from Mercer Island (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-618-8194

   

Teresa called me asking for my help in recovering her lost gold diamond wedding ring of twenty-seven years. She told me the story that started several month prior. Teresa and her husband has just returned from a sailing voyage and on this day they were having a relaxing party on their boat as it was docked in their Eagle Harbor slip. Teresa remembers she was fidgeting with her ring finger and some how she managed to shoot the ring off her finger, it flew threw her hair, over the sail boat railing and down into the water below. Her husband witness the whole event and confirmed that the ring was in fact resting in the bottom of the Puget Sound waters.

After this the couple hired a young local diver that had been doing some underwater boat work but he had no success. Teresa’s husband a former dive instructor took a turn and could not locate the ring. They then called upon an old friend a professional diver that brought along a metal detector. He came up with a bucket full of trash but no diamond ring. Teresa’s husband took another dive with the metal detector and still no ring was found. At this point everyone was felling rather hopeless it wold ever be recoverd.

One of Teresa’s coworkers suggested in a joking manner why not get a replacement ring since your old you soon won’t remember the difference anyway.

After thinking if over Teresa went to a jewelry store that was having a going out of business sales event. She explained her story as she picked out a replacement ring from a catalog. Where her special order arrived after she paid for the ring she had immediate buyers remouse and graciously the jeweler refunded her money and took the ring back. However he did look her straight in the eyes and said you will never get that old ring back.

At this pint Teressa wad determined to find a way to get her diamond wedding ring recovered. She remembered hearing something about TheRingFinders and thankfully she did!

Grab a bag of popcorn and watch how the full story unfold here.
On this recovery mission we enlist the support of the submergible PVC gird.

Lost ring in Arlington MA found

from Boston (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-603-809-3622

Cleaning the leaves! Cutting the grass! Playing with the dog. All known to steal rings, but this time it was just a borrow. Shawn called me after renting a metal detector and searching his yard for almost 8 hours. So after a brief description of what happened I started my grid search and before Shawn could fetch a rake I found his ring. The rake was a ploy so I could surprise him and by the look on his face I did just that. Thanks Shawn for calling the ringfinders.com and giving me a chance to make both our days!

 

 

Rings found Louisiana and Mississippi

from Baton Rouge (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-225-328-5300

I’m behind on making new posts but the calls for lost rings are still coming in and the rings are still being found. I thought I’d post a little update and a couple of the ones I got pictures of. I found a ring near Baton Rouge the other day that was in a fire, unfortunately I didn’t snap a picture of it because it was getting dark. The fellow had been doing yard work and burning limbs and it slipped off his finger (he wasn’t sure where) and I found it in the ashes. It survived the fire !! The ring was his fathers and had great sentimental value.

There was also a diamond engagement ring in Mississippi in a swimming area. After around 30 minutes of searching it was found in shallow water in a creek. I’ll post a picture of it.

Another one that comes to mind was found on a soccer field. It was a men’s wedding ring with an inscription inside the band. He had thrown a ball and it slipped off. I was able to find it in around an hour. I’ll post a picture of it as well.

There have been countless others since my last post (I’m horrible at getting posts made) but will try to do better.

Lost White Gold Wedding ring lost in CDA Idaho, Was Found!!

from Spokane (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-509-263-8995

The same choices made everyday are often the same choices made right before one might lose their ring. Likewise for Jamie, when her husband had come home she brought out her two wound up dogs for their moonlight walk. The air’s cool grip clung on tight that night but never the less when the walk was finished the dogs, Jamie’s husband and Jamie all had fun playing around in the pile of leaves. The playing in the leaves came to a close and the family retired back into the house. Upon a quick glance and with a rapid heart beat “my ring is missing” slipped out of Jamie’s mouth. The search was on. Flashlights and retraced steps left both Jamie and her husband at a loss. The next morning the dogs where lethargic with Jamie’s sadness. The only thing Jamie could possibly do was surfed the web for answers. The Knot, a wedding website, told her to call The Ring Finders. So Jamie sent me a frantic text, “I lost my ring are you still available?” I quickly called her and talked about the unfortunate night she had been through and then made arrangements to meet her after work. I knew that the ring could be anywhere in the leaves, on the path they took, in the yard, or on someone else’s hand. Hopeful I took off on my search. A quick pass in the pile of leaves, a stroll through the yard and back in the pile of leaves lead me straight to her ring. With a bit of confidence I looked over my shoulder at Jamie walking beside me and gave her a smile. ” If this signal isn’t your ring I’ll be surprised,”I said. I bent down and slowly pulled back the pile of leaves and revealed Jamie’s lost ring. The choice to enjoy life and have fun is always best, but when something like a lost ring steals away the joy, make sure to remember A Ring Finder is near and willing to help. Thanks Jamie for trusting The Ring finders.

I’d only been home for an hour from my first recovery for the day when I recieved a call from Henry who was still on the beach where he had just lost his platinum wedding ring.. here we go again I thought..

Recoveries by bicycle at the moment…

Unfortunately I was halfway through changing a blown head gasket on my ute when the first call had come in and hadn’t got any further with it after getting home from recovering Cambell’s lost ring when Henry called. I told Henry he’d need to be a little patient as I would be coming to his rescue by pushbike! I eventually caught up with him and on Brighton Beach about two hour’s later.

 

There you go Henry!

 

Henry and a friend had marked the location where they had been fishing when the ring was lost which made things a lot easier.

Henry’s “I Do” wedding ring freshly un-lost!!

I began a grid search and about four or five passes back and forth and bingo – right no’s, right sound, right ring equals Henry all smiles again..

Love what I do..

Engagement ring found in Waycross,GA

from Blackshear (Georgia, United States)
Contact: 1-912- 286-7733

I received a text from Hayden asking if I was the one who helped people find rings.   I called her back and told her I was and asked her details of where she was when she lost it.   I was already headed that way and told her and her husband I would be there in 10 minutes.

She had handed her husband the rings  in the parking lot of a  doctors office while she put on lotion.   Their young daughter took off running toward the street and he took off after her.   As he did, he slung the rings.   They were able to find the band but not the diamond ring.

I started searching where he was standing.   I knew the ring had to be somewhere in the grass and I should get a good shallow signal.   After about an hour of searching the grass and shrubs, I couldn’t believe I wasn’t finding it.   We all started praying.   The other ring was found on the other side of the driveway on the pavement.   So they suggested I look there.   I searched for a couple of minutes and just didn’t see how it could be over there.   I went back over the original area again.   No luck.   So back to the area where the other ring was found.   I started around a bush of Ivey and got a loud shallow signal.   I took out the pinpointed and moved the Ivey back and there it was.   Thank you Lord!
