I was in Hampton Bays just finished finding an I-Phone. I was checking email and messages and saw a text from Jacqueline. She said that last night while taking out the garbage that her ring came off and was in the snow.  I go to directions to the house and headed over there.  While in route I called her and said was on my way, she said that wasn’t home but working in the city.  She told the area that the ring was lost in and that I should call if there was a problem.

There was a lot of snow and ice by the garbage cans as well as a lot of bushes. I searched the area with no luck. I then started in the bushes and they were over grown a little so It was hard getting the detector head into them. After moving the branches in different direction I finally got a signal like ring. on my hands and knees I dug out the ring.  Back at the car I called Jacqueline and told her I found the ring. She said that she would not be out to the house till the weekend.  We agreed to hide the ring in a spot that she could find easily.

Lost ring at South Mission Beach found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Hailey was out on the beach one evening playing a game. When she was done, she realized the ring given to her by her boyfriend at Christmas was not on her finger anymore. Soft sand and a 30 X 40 foot area and there was no way she was going to find it without help. I got the call the next morning, grabbed my gear, and headed to meet her. On a public beach, you need to get on these things right away so someone else doesn’t find it first and not know who to return it to. On arrival, I noticed that some heavy equipment had gone through the area…..not a good sign. I looked down the beach and could see that equipment at work moving sand around. A skip loader and a rake machine. Okay, that’s better than a sifter, but, still the ring could have been scooped and dumped somewhere else, or, the rake could have drug the ring out of the search area. Not all of the search area had been disturbed, so, we were hopeful. After about 15-20 minutes of gridding, I got the sound I was “looking” for, and one scoop later, I had her ring. It was just a fraction outside the raked section of sand. Whew! I’m glad I could help you Hailey, and thank you for the reward.

 

Family Heirloom Ring Lost in Wood Pile.

  • from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact:

I just turned on the TV to watch some football when I received a call that a Family Heirloom ring was lost while moving the wood pile. The young lady said she move it a few times to search for the ring with absolutely no luck. She then went out and purchase a metal detector and search for the ring. She then called in another metal detector person that she found on line, NOT The Ringfinders, He searched for over 3 hours with no luck.

When I got there Sunday afternoon and asked the different question about what and how she lost the ring. I started a search in the mostly likely places that the ring could have taken flight. With not finding the ring in those area in came down to an area that was cement with metal screening in the cement.  I was several adjustments to my metal detector and started the search.  I received a ring sound and separated the wood chips and dirt and came up with the ring.  The woman was all smiles and thank you.

Sunday, December 27 in the afternoon I received an email asking if I was available to search for lost wedding rings.  They were lost some place in the house or in the trash. Made arrangements to come out Monday mourning.  I got to the house about 11 AM. After speaking to the unhappy couple, I said lets start with the trash as that was mostly to be wear it would be lost. There was about 20 bags of mixed garbage, thank goodness that they had separated the recyclables.

After going through about  15 bags and taking all the bottle tops out, I got a very strong ring signal  Sorting into the area that the signal came from was the rings.  The wife said she probably would never see the rings again, Well that didn’t happy and she was reunited with her wedding rings.

I received an email about a lost gold diamond engagement ring in their back yard. She possibility lost her ring while raking and bagging leaves a few days before. I had a hit in two of the four bags of leaves and started with them. As the first bag was dumped out on the ground cloth, I got a hit.  It was a piece of foil trash and the same for the other bag, trash again. Continue on through the grass around the vegetation and landscaping. Finding nails and trash with each hit then got a hit for this gold item in the dirt.

Lost Diamond Ring in Houma, LA. – FOUND

  • from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact:

Carrie got a call from Johnney about 9 am. Her 87 year old Mom had lost her diamond ring while working in her flower bed. With nothing going on for us at the time, we jumped in the truck and drove the 2 hours to Houma. The hunt area was pretty small, so Carrie grabbed her pin pointer to hunt the flower bed and Sid went for the detector to check the lawn around the flower bed. Carrie came up with a hit and the find within 5 minutes. Fast, but not a record for her. Needless to say Johnney and Mom were thrilled, with smiles and (even though we were not supposed to) hugs being shared. Old stories and a couple of pictures capped off our visit.  

Thank you for the generous reward!

A Decade Lost Now Found

  • from Reno (Nevada, United States)

Lost Ring Reno Tahoe Michael Price Metal Detecting text ASAP to 316-200-4115 or email miprice73@yahoo.com

While on vacation in Kansas and teaching a friend the in and out of detecting, I was approached by a woman holding a dog, asking if I ever detected on people’s properties.  I told her that, yes, given that we have permission, it is something we would do from time to time.   She then asked if I would be willing to look for a lost brooch.

Well of course I was willing.  I asked where and when it was lost and if she was available now.  Turns out it was lost a decade past and was in the back yard of her house but never could be located.  She had appts that day so we agreed to look for it in two days time.

Two days later I sent her a messaging letting her know I was back in town and was she ready to find her lost piece of jewelry.  After meeting up with her I gathered the particulars about the piece, where and how it was lost.

Setting up my equipment I immediately got busy detecting and soon found some decent signals.  Turns out she had another dog that loved chewing on metal objects so there were many of these ‘decent signals’.

Well, persistence pays off and in the end I was able to locate an object near the surface. Using a pinpointer I was able to determine that it was indeed a surface object and wiped the mud from what turned out to be her brooch.  Unfortunately time had not been kind and the clasp had broken off as well as having a stone fall out   Both were recovered as well and she intends to use it for something or get it repaired

She was delighted to say the least as, while not an expensive piece, it meant a lot to her.  I wasn’t expecting to help find a lost piece on vacation but being in the right place at the right time turned out great for everyone.

Successful recovery #20 for 2020!
 
Tonight i went to search for a wedding ring lost by Justin in his front yard while playing ball with his son. He saw it go flying when he threw the ball so he was able to show me the general area where he was standing. After i turned on the machine and tuned it a bit to remove the electrical interference i took 2 swings and got a tone. I then knelt down with my handheld pinpointer and moved it around in the grass until it gave me another signal and sure enough it was his ring! He was very happy and surprised i found it so quickly! They had searched for it with no luck. But sometimes while fanning grass you can wind up covering it more. Another happy ending!

Lost ring found at Independence Park in Canton, Michigan

  • from Wixom (Michigan, United States)

Travis called me with the classic needle and the haystack problem.  He lost his platinum wedding ring while coaching his daughter’s soccer team the evening before.  He had already looked hard for it and welcomed my help.  Travis borrowed a very neat, army surplus, mine detector which was fairly powerful, and because the field was fairly clean, he would have probably found the ring himself, given a few more hours of diligent searching.  Fortunately, I was able to find his ring in front of the goal ending our search in about thirty minutes.

I made a short YouTube video of the recovery and the happy reunion.  https://youtu.be/Js1_LuKRhXc

This ring was hard to see in the grass.

A little dirty but unharmed.
