Lost Mans White Gold Wedding Band In Ocean City Maryland Found

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

On 08/11/18, I received a call from Jeff requesting my help in finding his lost White Gold Wedding Band on the beach at 98th street in Ocean City, Maryland. Jeff said that he and his family were at the beach when he took his wedding band off and gave it to his wife before going swimming. Jeff’s wife put his ring in the cup holder of her chair. Jeff said that when they got ready to leave the beach they forgot that the ring was in the cup holder, they folded up the chair and left the beach. Jeff said that they realized that his ring was gone only after they had left the beach. Jeff said that he believed that his ring had either fallen out of the cup holder when they folded up the chair or that at some point it had fallen through the bottom of the cup holder because it had a hole in it that they did not know about. Jeff said that he and his family had gone back home and that he was no longer on vacation in Ocean City. Jeff provided a good description of the area at the 98th street beach where he felt that his ring was lost in the sand. I told Jeff that I would search for his ring but that it would be few hours later because I was not currently at home. I responded to the beach later on Saturday evening and began a search for the ring. I spent several hours looking in the area for the ring with no luck. I even had a visitor tell that I was in the right area because he had seen people with flashlights looking for something in the same spot on Friday evening. After an extensive search of the area and not finding the ring I placed a call to Jeff to see if he could offer any new information. Upon talking with Jeff, he directed me to an area that was only a few feet north of my original search area. On my third sweep of the new search area I heard a solid tone in my headset and upon digging into the sand I located the lost ring. I called Jeff back and gave him the good news, Jeff asked me to mail his ring back to him which I did and Jeff was nice enough to send me a picture of him holding his recovered lost ring.

Lost Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ

I received a call from Abe after he lost his 14k white gold wedding band with diamonds on the first day of vacation in Ocean City NJ.  I met Abe at the beach and he said that the ring was in his pocket with his wallet.  When he went to meet the ice cream man he pulled out his wallet while walking and must have dropped the ring in the sand somewhere between where they were sitting and the ice cream man. Several people had been looking for the ring but there search was unsuccessful.  The search area was large and the ring was about 150 feet from where they were sitting. After a through grid and search of the area the ring came out of the sand! Abe came and gave me a huge hug and thanked me! Abe said the ring is very sentimental and was very happy that the ring was found!

 

LOST DIAMOND RING FOUND WAIKIKI

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th  and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA  IS ALIVE.

 

Rings lost at Mission Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Esther called me and asked for help finding her future sister-in-law Gerry’s engagement ring. Reason #2 again! Yup, ring put into beach chair pocket, chair folded up later when they left, and no ring by the time they got to the car. I get the particulars and find out it’s been two days since the loss. That’s an eternity on the blanket line at a popular beach, but, always worth a try. I met Esther at the beach and she directs me to the search area. Since she wasn’t with them when this all happened, I could only get a general idea of where it might be. Esther’s Brother-in-law and future husband of Gerry was on his way to help narrow the search area since he was there at the time of loss. I searched a bit in the mean time, but, only came up with a few coins. That was a good sign however, telling me that it was unlikely anyone else had detected that area lately. The beach groomer hadn’t been through there either, another thing in our favor. Hollis arrived and pointed out the area he believed they had been, and Oh, there were actually 5 rings that were lost! 1 white gold, and 4 silver, so, I’ll be digging just about all signals.

Naturally, there were other people camped right in that spot today! I started searching an open spot next to it while Esther and Hollis went to get permission to hunt under the people’s tent and around their camp. The people were nice enough to allow that, but, no ring came to light. I went back and continued to grid the open area while they tried to figure out where the next likely spot would be. After many passes and getting about 100 feet away from where the rings should be, I was just about to stop and move to search their path back to the car, and the trash cans where they stopped on the way, when I get another good “dime” signal. I scoop and sweep over the hole. Still a signal, so, I dump the sand and take another scoop. Hmmm, two rings in the scoop that look like the silver rings described by Hollis as being the other rings Gerry had lost. I called him over and he confirmed that those were two of them. I swept the hole again, but, nothing. Swept the sand I dumped out on my first scoop, and I get another signal. Yup silver ring number 3. Another sweep and silver #4. To heck with silver! Where’s the gold! Next scoop is where! A beautiful engagement ring comes to light. My first 5 ring recovery! Hollis and Esther are amazed and very happy to see those rings again, and Gerry was too when she was contacted with the good news. A pleasure to meet you, good luck on your future marriage Hollis and Gerry, and thank you for the reward.

Ring lost at La Jolla shores Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Alec and Liz were visiting here in San Diego and spent the day at the beach in La Jolla. Liz removed her special family heirloom gold ring that she got from her grandmother, and put it in her purse for safekeeping. Well, it must not be too good a place to stay safe as after they packed up and left the beach, they discovered it was not still in the purse. The good news was that it should be in the dry sand. The bad news was that I didn’t get contacted until a couple of days had passed, and the beach grooming machine had already gone through the area. Another possible minus was that it could be in a HUGE area. Not only where they were camped, but almost a half mile of beach they walked to get back to their car. Though I wouldn’t have given good odds on this recovery, I was more than willing to give it a go. Going by a few Google maps, I started at the parking lot at 8pm and walked the 1/2 mile to where they were camped, detecting along the supposed route. Nothing on the first pass. I get to the most likely spot where they had been for most of the day and started my grid. After many passes, I realized it was 9:30pm and that the parking lot would close at 10. I make another pass back to the parking lot without success, get my truck out of the lot, and drive north up to where I left off gridding. After another half hour or so, I get the signal I was hoping for. A good healthy scoop later and her precious ring was in my hand. A few days later, they made the trip back to San Diego and were reunited with the wayward circle. Now grandma’s ring story can continue! A pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for the generous reward.

Lost rings at Pacific Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Fie was visiting here in San Diego and went to the beach with her son. She decided to put some sun screen on her son and removed her wedding, engagement, and anniversary rings and put them in her jeans pocket. She and her son went and played in the sand and water (where she got knocked over a few times) and at the end of the day, she realized her jean pockets were empty! Panic sets in at that point trying to figure out what to do. Fie’s cousin starts a Google search and up pops TheRingFinders.com website and my contact info. Since she had just lost them only 2-3 hours before she contacted me, I wanted to get on site as soon as possible, even though it was going to be high tide soon. Being a Friday night, hot, humid, and summer time, I knew it would be crowded and hard to find parking. No matter, I wanted to get there before someone else found the rings and made off with them. I met them shortly after sunset and headed to the area they had been that afternoon. Even though there were still a few people on the beach, I was able to search almost all of the suspect area. No rings…shoot. Well, the tide was just starting to head out, but, not enough yet to do a water search. I told them I would return early in the morning and sweep the area at low tide. Not knowing exactly when and where the rings came out made it a HUGE search area, probably 3-4 football fields in size was a possibility. I returned at 2am and started just south of the most likely area and planned on gridding my way north all the way to the pier if necessary. She had only gone knee deep, but, it’s a pretty shallow beach in that area so tons of wet sand to cover. After about an hour and a half, I hit my best sound of the night. One big scoop and I had a beautiful engagement ring in my hand. Even covered in sand and with only my headlamp to see it, I was pretty sure it was one of her rings. Now, where are the others? I looped around this one a couple of times, but, nothing. Hmm. Ok, I continued on with my grid and about 8 feet away, I get another great signal. Sure enough, another matching ring comes to light. Alright, just one more! Circled around that area a bit and again, nothing. Dang, continue with the grid again. Another 8 feet toward shore and I get the third one. All of them were in a straight line from about a 160 feet out from the dry sand. This was a 3’s wild kind of night. Her’s was the 3rd set of 3 rings I’ve recovered and it started at 3:33am! I looked at my watch after finding the first ring. Kinda weird, but, in a nice way! When I got home, I texted Fie and told her that I would contact her later in the day after I got some sleep. We made arrangements to meet that afternoon. She and some of her wonderful family came and had a joyous reunion with her rings. It was a pleasure to meet you all and thank you for the generous reward! 

Metal Detector Rental Vancouver, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

 

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert who has found & returned over 500 lost rings to their very happy owners!

Most people think of renting a metal detector when they lose their ring, the problem is if you’ve never used one you can be walking away from finding your ring. Its not as easy as it looks and if you’re a first timer it can be confusing, that’s when a metal detecting expert comes into play.

This call was to find a lost diamond ring that has been handed down from generations, three to be exact. I’ve always said that every ring we find for someone has an amazing story attached to it and how that story ends if we can’t find it. This call was to help find her ring in the ocean at English Bay and how she went and bought goggles and searched for hours with no luck! Thankfully we live in the computer age and people have a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever!

I drove to the beach right away and met the young lady and her friend and they showed me the area they believed the came off. It took me maybe 10 minutes to find and the look on her face was priceless when I showed it to her!

Surfing Haigis Beach Cape Cod, Lost Ring, Exhilarating Search, Book of Smiles

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

August 2, 2018 Justin Mello lost his wedding band while body surfing the incoming tide. By the time I was contacted it was just too late in the evening to start a search in a rough surf. The next morning Jim and I showed up at 7am and started to search a very angry sea bed. Three foot waves were a threat to our search. We were lucky the waves were calming as the tide was going out. However, our safety was our first objective, finding the ring the second. One set of waves came in and Jim disappeared, playing submarine, not by his choice. When he surfaced he was all in tack save for a bit of seaweed on top of his wet hat. Justin arrived about 8am and told Jim and myself we were in the correct area, but a bit too far out. Heck that was were the big waves were and we were (at least I was) having fun riding them. The tide had gone out for more than an hour, exposing more dry wet sand. We started to search the area that we could not the hour before because of the rough surf. Now in ankle deep water a strong signal said “Dig Me!” and I did. In my scoop was Justin’s white gold wedding band. The exhilarating hunt was over, time for coffee after pictures and a few detecting stories.

Luke found, Rick returns – another team effort – at Skatet Beach

What are Friends for…yielding a helping hand.

July 31, 2018 Chris lost his wedding band while playing catch in waist deep water. The next morning I searched for 3 hours in an area marked on a birds eye photo of Skatet Beach. The search reviled nothing, except for a few coins and sinkers. At home I planed my next effort to locate the missing ring.
Unbeknown to me, another detecting friend, Luke, per chance without knowing of the lost ring found it. He texted our mutual friend Jim. Jim told Luke that I was looking for the ring he had just found. After confirmation that Luke had found the lost ring, he gave me the ring to return to Chris. It was mailed on Saturday and should be delivered on Monday.
Luke has now made application to become one of the elite TheRingFinders. Welcome, Luke!

Lewis Bay, Mass.; Ring Found: Clams 1, Searches 2, Bouys 3, Happy Family Members 4

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

July 22, 2018

Use the proper tool for a given task was always the recommendation my father gave to me.

Joe would have had a better two weeks had his father-in-law had an extra clam rake for him to use. Not having a clam rake Joe used the next best item available, his hands to dig for clams. Little did he know that clams love gold rings. The clam that got away on that Sunday made away with Joe’s wedding band. Swimming masks and snorkels were not the proper “tools” to find a lost ring in the low viability of the bay.

A few days later was the start of a very confusing (for me) understanding of the lost ring’s family. Well that was my problem and did not have an affect on my search. What turned from a 30’ radius round a buoy to into a much larger area. So large I did not find the ring on my first 3 hour search. I then waited for better tide and sun combination. I hate getting sun burned. The second search I took a second detectorist. We covered the area were the ring “was” lost and increased the search area beyond the original 30’ circle and area to get from the beach to the buoy. Increasing the radius by about 20 feet did the trick. The ring was in my scoop. Oh the clam that I believe to be the culprit who took the ring in the first place had told me to go in the direction I did as I increased the search area. He and several of his friends who had been taunting be to break the law and take them home to be made into clam chowdah were put back into the bay’s bottom, left for Joe to put his new clam rake to a good use on.

The day after finding the ring all my confusion was put straight, five names, four people now I got it. I met with Joe, his wife, mother- and father-in-law. All were present at my house where the ring was returned, photos were taken, and a few good tales passed. A fun family, I am sure the ring will now have a long and happy life even with an invisible scare where it was made to loose a bit and tighten up on Joe’s finger. I thank all that made this return a wonderful memory.
