WEDDING BAND LOST IN BATON ROUGE, LA-FOUND

  • from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact:

Carrie and Sid got a call from Morgan on Labor Day. Her husband of less than one year had lost his wedding band while working in their yard. He had many tasks so the ring could be in any of the four flower beds, garden, yard around the driveway, two potted plants or the trash can where plants and shrimp shells had been tossed. We each headed in different directions and began the search. The metal flower bed borders were the biggest problem. Lots of hunting was by pin pointer. After an hour, Carrie got a good signal on the grass a foot from a flower bed. Found! Needless to say, Morgan was excited and their marriage is now safe.

Thank you for the very generous reward.

Sand Volleyball Courts Swallow Rings

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

Received a call from a young man on the volleyball courts. Everybody was looking, without success, for the ring he had just lost. Luck  had it that I was 10 minutes away with all my equipment already inside my vehicle. Outside of the pepper spray incident, we were able to, in a matter of minutes,  locate his grandmother’s ring after the clasp of the necklace he hung it on broke.   He was overjoyed to have the ring his grandmother gave him before he left for Canada back.

West Yarmouth, Cape Cod, MA Lost Wedding Band Found and Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

September 5, 2021

The last of the beach cleanups were in progress and all went well. The docks were in, the boats as well. It was now time for a relaxing cool off in the lake. As it usually happened when one has weight changes their ring does not resize to echo the body’s change. Then it happens, the ring slips off and disappears underwater and down into the sand, not to be seen without help.

The three, Jim, Joe, and Jeff all knew they would need help in finding Jim’s wedding band. Several calls to friends for a detector that would not self-destruct when used underwater did not produce such a detector. A call to the local Metal Detector Dealer (Eleanor at J&E Enterprise) gave the threesome a lead. They should make a local call to Rick Browne – one of TheRingFinders and Jeff did. I answered the call and set a noon meeting time for the next day as it was almost dark. All was set yet, the night would have some anxious moments.

Leighton and I showed up a bit early as our earlier Ring Return only took a few minutes to complete.
A quick overview of the area were the loss occurred and we were into the water to search for the ring. A few coin and a bullet gave us hope. After about a minute and a half I had a very good sounding signal and yes a very large circular piece of gold was in the bottom of my scoop. I walked it in and let Jim remove his ring, untouched since it has slipped from his finger. Ring Return number two for the morning had been accomplished.

Many thanks, pictures, stories and a lot of history of the local private pond and resort area. The thrill, history, meeting new and now friends and helping others is the most wonderful part of our hobby. Leighton and I work well together, having the same ethics and desires to reunite a lost object with the owner. September 5th was another of those rewarding days we enjoy so much.

Diamond Wedding Rings Lost Two Months Ago Found In Morehead City Waters

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Amanda explained to me, two months ago, her daughter had cut her foot in the waters of a small Morehead City, NC beach.  During the excitement, Amanda had taken off her long sleeve coverup shirt to wrap her daughters food on the beach.  She told me that is where she thought her rings were pulled from her finger.  She explained she had a group with metal detectors come out the July 4th weekend to help locate the missing rings.  It wasn’t until a friend had heard about The Ring Finders on a radio broadcast and this lead Amanda to contact Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  My first attempt was to thoroughly search the beach and shallow water.  This beach was full of various garbage, mostly aluminum which is a nemesis to detectorist.  My second day attempt was planned so that it would be during a low tide and more importantly, early enough in the morning that nobody would be in the way of my search.  I arrived at 6am, just before it was getting light enough to see.  I began a search from beach to water and back.  Each time I would go in just above knee deep water as Amanda told me it happened at low tide that day and the deepest she went was knee deep water.  I must admit my doubts of finding the rings lost in a public area 2 months prior were in my mind.  I also knew if I don’t try all possible areas, I wouldn’t be assured I tried my best.  The waters still produced a large amount of aluminum and each time I would try to scoop the target and dump it into my floating sifter.  I was in an area with multiple targets around me when I dumped a scoopful and was about to dig again when I glanced over to see Amanda’s wedding band laying in the basket.  I was in knee deep water at the time.  The very next scoop raised her beautiful engagement ring!

Amanda was very close by and I called her just before 8 am to ask her to come down and help me narrow my search area because of the numerous garbage items I was digging.  Amanda showed up with her daughter and at one point when she looked away, I held out both of her lost rings.  She looked back and noticed in disbelief her rings in my hand.  It is moments like this that make me proud to return items that have so much meaning!

Ring lost at La Jolla found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Charles and his wife Yolanda were spending the day at a small beach in La Jolla when a ball flew down from the cliff up above and landed close to where they were sitting. Charles grabbed the ball and while throwing it, his rose gold wedding band flew off and into the dry sand. He search for quite a while without success. An online search brought him to TheRingFinders.com website and my contact info. I gathered my gear and headed to their location. I was even lucky enough to find a parking spot fairly close to where they were. Charles met me up on the cliff and we proceeded to the search area. Maybe 2 minutes later, I get a solid 20 on my Equinox and I mentioned to Charles that it’s probably a zinc cent, or, it could possibly be his ring if it was big enough. Sure enough, it was plenty big! A pleasure to meet you both and thank you for the reward.

Lost Diamond Ring During Atlantic Beach Gathering Found With Good Timing

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Jo Ann was brought out to Atlantic Beach for a family photo shoot and to spend time with her family.   Her great grand kids had gathered sand & fiddler crabs in a bucket.  Jo Ann put her hand into the bucket of sand, water & crabs when one of her rings slipped off into the bucket.  It wasn’t until after the bucket was dumped back into the oncoming surf that it was discovered, one of her rings was missing.  A friend and I were just walking onto the beach to help remove some of the metal garbage laying under the sand when a family member approached us and told us of the situation.  After a few passes, the ring was found in the sand under the shallow water.  It took about 5 minutes.  We walked up to where they were sitting and none of them had realized we had found her ring.  They started to thank us for searching thinking were didn’t find the ring when we presented the ring.  They were very thankful but on a tight schedule so we made the return as brief as possible and we went back to cleaning the beach.

 

Ring lost at a San Diego beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Corey and his family were spending a day at the beach. He put his wedding ring in his pocket for safe keeping, only to discover later that his pocket had a hole in it and the ring was gone! This wasn’t the first wedding ring he’s lost, so, he had to endure another tongue lashing from his wife. a couple of days later, Corey searched online, found TheRingFinders.com website, got my contact information, and gave me a call. We met at the beach about 45 minutes later where he showed me the search area in the dry sand where they were camped last Saturday. I started a grid in the most likely spot and expanded out from there. In about 15 minutes or so, Corey was going to head up to his car, but, at that moment, I got a nice “14” pull tab sound on my Equinox, and out came Corey’s ring from the sand. A happy Corey now gets to go home and move his belongings out of the dog’s house and back in the family’s house! A pleasure to meet you Corey and thank you for the reward.

 

Lost Ring On Topsail Island Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

John & Sophie arrived at their North Topsail, NC beach house one day prior for a family vacation with great views and weather.  John had taken his wedding band of many years off to swim in the ocean.  The beach chairs were moved a few times because of the incoming tide and were eventually folded up and returned to the house.  John called me later that afternoon the ask if I could be of assistance.  Upon arrival John showed me the boundaries for my search.  There were very little signs of metal in the sand and at one point, I wondered if I had the correct search settings.  After a crusty penny, my next signal was a strong soda tab signal.  This time it was just the opposite!  John’s white gold wedding band was peaking up from the sand after my first try to brush the sand away from the target.  If I remember correctly, I think John said “well how about that!”   John told the neighbors that he didn’t need to sleep outside tonight!

Sentimental Lost Rings Found Atlantic Beach, NC By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

Kelly started to send me vague questions about my service and what was required from her.  It was a very busy day for me and I also had plans to search for a lost ring the next morning.  Once she gave more details about where she had lost an heirloom gold diamond ring and also a second gold aquamarine ring from her father, I was started to worry as they were very close to a busy section of beach.  I had made plans to sacrifice some sleep to arrive at Atlantic Beach a few hours before heading to my morning appointment in New Bern, NC.  As I knew my search time was short, I “phoned a friend” to assist with the hunt.  Justin and I started at the area Kelly had marked very well with pictures, illustrations and landmarks.  Justin began hunting the upper section of the recently replenished beach that was full of small pieces of aluminum as I worked from the high tide line.  It only took about 30 minutes until Justin was able to winkle out Kelly’s two beautiful rings!  Kelly informed us that she worked in New Bern so we still had time to hand deliver her recently found rings before heading to my previous planned location.

Wedding Ring Lost Bridgehampton

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

I received a call from Chris that he lost his wedding ring in Bridgehampton at a wedding reception. He asked if I could help and said I would be out the  next mourning. As usual traffic was bad going to the Hamptons, I made it and meet Chris at the Topping Rose House where the reception was held on Saturday.  I was hoping the grass wasn’t cut as a ring could get damaged by the lawn mower. It wasn’t.

Chris showed me a photo taken at the reception showing me the ring. he stated that later is when he didn’t have it on his finger. I asked where he was sitting and a few other questions.  I then got me detector and started searching.  It take long to find the ring in the grass. Looking down to where the ring was, could not see it, I used my pin pointer to located a closer spot and using my fingers I located it. I showed it to Chris and A big smile came across his face and with a shock in his voice he yells you found it.
