Leena’s Diamond Stud Earring and Backing Both Recovered on Barnesville, Maryland Horse Farm by Brian Rudolph

Leena Excitedly Holds Her Brilliant 1 Carat Diamond Stud Earring After Recovered in the Grass by Metal Detectorist Brian Rudolph


I was so delighted to receive a call from a young lady named Leah who was trying to help her mother Leena find her lost 14 karat white gold, 1 carat diamond stud earring and earring backing. Leah’s mother was helping her daughter trim some high grass along a fence line on the family’s beautiful Barnesville, Maryland horse farm called Nixie Hollow Stables. While Leena was using the gas operated trimmer, a bug brushed up against her right ear, causing Leena to swat the flying creature. As a result, the earring flew off and landed somewhere in the grass. Just on instinct, Leena felt her right ear to see if the diamond was still fastened to her earlobe, but unfortunately she only felt the backing of the precious jewel – the earring was gone. She then tried to recover the 14 karat white gold backing, yet just as she was trying to handle it, it too fell into the grass and disappeared. For the next 15 minutes she looked for the sentimental keepsake that her husband Erwin given her many decades back, but all of her efforts led to no avail. Even her daughter and friend tried to search for the stud earring and the backing and none of them could recover either piece of jewelry.

At some point later that afternoon and into the evening hours, Leah went online to search for a metal detecting service to help Leena recover her lost jewel. She found THE RING FINDERS, an international directory of metal detectorists who specialize in finding lost rings and other items of value for thousands of people around the world. As soon as Leah used THE RING FINDER’S search locator to find the closest metal detectorist to Barnesville, Maryland (which is close to Dickerson, Maryland), my name (Brian Rudolph) appeared on screen. Leah immediately got in touch with me and within a few minutes we set up an appointment for me to visit Nixie Hollow Stables.

I will never forget how beautiful it was the day that I drove over to the Barnesville, Maryland horse farm. The country road took me far away from suburban city life and brought me to the most serene and breathtaking surroundings. When I pulled into the estate grounds, I followed a gravel driveway towards the back of the property where the main house eventually came into sight. It was a huge horse farm with an indoor arena, along with lots of other stables throughout the amazing property. Split rail fencing divided all kinds of areas that were being used to train beginners, equestrian enthusiasts and more advanced riders who were interested in continuing their education in horse riding. My eyes tried to take in all of this beautiful countryside before I would meet up with Leena and Leah. It was simply picture perfect out there on that farm!

Just as I parked my vehicle, Leena greeted me and before long we were walking together to the particular horse pen where Leena had lost her earring. I had the distinct privilege of learning the names of all of the horses that were grazing out in the far pasture, as well as obtaining a brief history of the land that I was standing upon. Leena and family truly built a magnificent horse riding farm!

While we were in the pen, Leena pointed out the exact location as to where she put the trimmer down just at the moment when she lost her diamond stud earring, as well as the backing. I could still see where she stopped trimming because there was a definite change of the grass height as I looked along the split rail fence line.

Once I got all the details regarding the loss of her very sentimental keepsake (which Leena said that she wore most of the time), we walked back to our cars so I could do a test on her matching earring that survived the bug attack. My objective was to get an idea of how my detector would respond to the amount of metal that was on the existing earring’s setting. By analyzing how well or poorly the earring would be detected by my machine, I could then formulate my plan of attack on how to find the lost piece of jewelry.

I got my Minelab Equinox 800 detector out of my vehicle, adjusted the settings for that particular test, and then Leena placed her existing earring on the concrete where I waved the coil of the detector over the piece of jewelry to get a reading. The cage of this particular diamond setting was large enough that I had a chance of detecting the earring that was still lost out there. I determined that I would need to set my detector to a very special mode (which I have used in similar situations like this one when the target is this tiny) in order to give me the best chance of locating the item in the grass.

Now that I was able to scan the existing earring, I gathered up all of my detecting gear, placed everything in my wagon and then pulled it over to the search site where I immediately started hunting for the little precious jewel. While I was working in that particular horse pen, Leena and her daughter Leah worked on other projects throughout their amazing property. I recall how I was completely aware of the serenity of my environment the entire time that I was searching for the earring and its backing. It was so peaceful and quiet out there on the farm. I also remember the fact that I was not in any hurry to leave the site as I had the whole day to carry out my “investigation”. Therefore, I was so relaxed in knowing that if I focused on every square inch of the ground that I was searching (without becoming stressed out and having to rush through the very tedious process of finding the earring), I would eventually discover the two targets that I was seeking after.

My basic strategy was to lay down some grid lines in order to keep my swings accountable as I moved across approximately a 10 foot by 10 foot section of land. I moved slowly over the grass as I carefully examined every sound and number that was registered on my detector. I was determined that I was not going to miss a single object as I swung from left to right and back again across my 2 foot wide grid lane. Even though you would not expect a lot of metal to be buried just below the surface of that particular area of land, I encountered numerous signals that indicated that there were in fact small pieces of aluminum or even possibly the earring that I was looking for. Each and every one of those objects needed to be analyzed just to make sure that I was not missing the very object that I was hoping to discover. Sometimes I will find the earring’s backing before I actually locate the stud itself. The reason for this is because the backing sometimes is made with enough precious metal that that the detector will have an easier time locating that piece more than the actual stud’s setting itself.

During the first two hours, I went from one grid lane to another and I could not find either part of the earring. This did not move me a bit because I knew that Leena lost the items very close to where I was searching. If I effectively used my detecting tools correctly and efficiently, it was just a matter of time before I would eventually discover the first piece of jewelry. Every time I got a potential target signal, I would scour the ground with my pinpointer just to make sure that I did not miss anything. In finding stud earrings (even using a hand-held metal detector to zero-in on the target) they can still be very difficult to nearly impossible to recover. There is so little gold on the setting that even a device such as this one on the highest level of sensitivity may still not be able to pick up the earring. It just depends on the quantity of gold we are dealing with and the angle to which the piece of jewelry is positioned on the ground when the detector is moving across it. Leena and Leah came over to see how things were progressing a couple of times during my search and I confidently expressed to them that I was not moved by the fact that I had not yet recovered either one of the targets we were searching for.

Rudolph’s First Recovered Item – Leena’s Earring’s Backing Found at the Bottom of the Grass

By the time I reached the third hour of searching, I had finished two thirds of my grid area that I had sectioned out. There were times throughout my detecting that I would get on-all -fours and search with my pinpointer just to make sure that I did not miss a single object that may have been positioned on its side where it might have been missed by my main detector. While I was swinging the machine along one of the last grid lanes, I got a particular signal that was identical to my earlier test results on the matching earring over by the parking lot. I had encountered similar target signals but this one got my attention a little bit more than the rest of them. As soon as I narrowed the location on the ground as to where this signal was coming from, I knelt down and took my handheld metal detector and isolated the very spot where this object of interest was hiding. At that point I still did not know if the target was below ground or not, but my detector read that it was on the surface (or at the very least – very close to it). As my fingers moved through the plant life, my eyes locked onto a very small piece of metal tucked away below some of blades of grass. Immediately, I excitedly identified the object as the 14 karat white gold backing that went missing in action!

I was really encouraged by this find! Not only did it mean that I found part of the earring set, but also it meant that I had not missed 50% of what I was looking for! I concluded that I had to be close to the area where Leena witnessed the backing fall to the ground and into the grass. My hope was that the earring itself would be located within a couple of feet from where the backing was just discovered. I got back up off the ground and continued in the same direction that I was swinging the coil with the hope that I would find the stud diamond earring soon enough.

The 1 Carat Diamond Stud Earring Finally Discovered by Rudolph!

Item recovery specialists like myself never can guarantee how long it will take to recover something as small and as difficult as finding a stud diamond earring. However, with lots of patience and determination to pull such a sentimental piece like this one from the ground, it is truly obtainable and the likelihood of success is fairly good. In this particular case, I was not going to stop this search until I found both jewelry pieces to return to Leena’s ear! And as it happened, just about 10 minutes after I found the gold earring backing, I got another curious signal just about 2.5 to 3 feet from where I found the first piece of precious metal. Like before, I got down on-all-fours and began looking through the grass and detected the area of interest with my pinpointer. Again, I spread the blades of grass and clover to see where the target signal had originated from. Instantly I caught sight of the most beautiful one carat diamond “sparkler” in the midst of the dirt and weeds! I found it! I recovered the missing diamond stud earring!

I was so overjoyed for Leena’s sake and I too was happy for myself, knowing that the search was over and that celebration awaited the three of us who were on the horse farm during the time of my discovery! This beautiful keepsake would soon be reunited with its owner and its precious counterpart! I carefully picked up the stud and secured it inside the same case attached to my detecting harness where the stud backing was protected for safekeeping. This was such a happy moment for me to recover such a priceless symbol of love that meant so much to Leena’s husband Erwin who went out to buy the set of earrings way back in the 1970s. The man blessed his wife with this special gift to show his love towards her and now it brought me so much satisfaction to be able to help preserve such a special “story of love” upon returning that which meant so much to Leena through what Erwin had given her!

Leena’s Earring and Backing Both Recovered by Professional Metal Detectorist Brian Rudolph

Surprising Leena and her daughter Leah with the diamond earring and it’s backing was absolute fun for me! They could not have been more thrilled at my sweet results! In addition to the successful news, we were also touched to figure out that I happened to know the family who sold Erwin the earring set so very long ago! When Leena mentioned that the diamond set had been bought in a jewelry store located in downtown Washington DC (which is no longer there), I asked if her husband happened to have purchased the jewelry at a store called Lynn’s Jewelers. Leena gave me a look of utter amazement! She couldn’t believe I would have known about the small shop that once existed deep in the heart of the nation’s capital! Lynn’s was in fact the jewelry store where not only Erwin bought the gift, but it was also a very special place for them to purchase other fine jewelry items over time. Leena mentioned names of the owners and workers that I knew, as well! For forty-five years. I have been friends with the Lynn and Rubinstein family (Mr. Lynn’s daughter Vivian married one of the store’s top salesman, Bernie Rubinstein who then partnered up with his father-in-law in running the once popular jewelry store).


After I said goodbye to Leena and Leah, I took one more long look out into the spectacular countryside, breathing in the serene environment that surrounded me on all sides. I then got in my car and started driving back down the gravel path which guided me towards the main road. Excitement went through my entire being at that moment, knowing that I was able to help this very kind woman find her extremely special keepsake. But even further, I got the opportunity to be acquainted with two very special and kind people!

October 15th, 2020: Fairfax County gave permission to search park, and I recovered a diamond earring

Sydney was playing with friends on the field at Nottoway Park when she realized one of her lovely diamond earrings, a gift from her father, was missing. She looked for it, but quickly realized the impossibility of finding it in the grass. She contacted me and we discussed the possibility of a search. Sydney was a great help, obtaining photos which showed her earring on her ear for part of the event,and then showing how it was missing later. I think she was a detective in another life…


Nottaway Park is part of the Fairfax County Park Authority and is adjacent to the historic Hunter House mansion. To use a detector in a county park is forbidden.  The County rightly is concerned detectorists will dig up the lovely fields. They are also very protective of historic sites like the Hunter House. I’m very grateful to Ms. Stratford of the Park Authority.  She contacted various County departments and encouraged them to give me permission to search. Also, a shout out to the maintenance manager Mr. Sullivan who postponed grass cutting so I could search.


Without boring you with too many details, let me say this was a very difficult recovery. It’s like searching for a needle, in a haystack full of needles. I used a small coil on the end of a special detector so I could hear small items like earrings. To cover the field I needed to scan every inch. Think of it like painting a floor with a 4” brush.  It took six trips to the park, and 21 hours to find. When I saw the look on Sydney’s face, it was so worth it!!!

Yellow Gold Diamond Earring Lost, Sherwood Park. Alberta. Canada

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)


I received a call from Carolyn requesting my service to locate her earing lost in her back yard! Carolyn was kneeling on the lawn when her dog jumped up and tried to chew her ear.  He tugged on the earring and took off with it.

I met Carolyn this morning and she showed me the area.   Thankfully Carolyn had left every thing the way it was when it happened which made my search easer.  After tweaking my V3i to her other earring I began my search.  After about an hour of searching I found her earring.  I called Carolyn over to  show her how well covered with grass her earing was.   She was very happy to have her earring back!

Another Happy Client.

I received a call from Demond about a lost diamond stud earring he lost in the grass at a high school where he coaches football. We arranged to meet the next day in order to get right on the search so as to not let too much time go by.

When I got there Demond met me and took me to the area of the loss. He showed me where he and the team he was coaching had pulled the grass up looking for the lost earring with no luck. I began my search in a grid pattern, and made a few passes. Demond then showed me where he thought the earring actually came off, so I moved to that spot to continue the search. After about 5 or 6 swings of the coil over the grass, I got a good solid signal, and switched to my pin pointer. I worked through the grass, and then the pin pointer was hearing the metal in the muddy dirt under the grass, so I worked my finger in to dislodge whatever it was, when I saw the earring come up, and flip into the already moved grass. It just made for a little more searching, but I eventually recovered the earring, and gave it back to Demond, who was very happy, because the earrings were a present from his wife for their anniversary. His smile tells it all!

Tiny Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Backyard in Los Angeles, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Lisa called last night wondering if I would be able to find her daughter’s diamond stud earring. I inquired as to where and how it was lost, and of course how long ago. Apparently her daughter was playing volley ball in the back yard when she went up against the net. At that time her earring hooked in the net and pulled off of her ear. She saw it fly off and land in the grass, but found searching for it an effort in futility. The loss happened about 45 minutes before Lisa’s daughter found me on the Internet, and the call was made. We arranged to meet today at about 11:30 AM.

I arrived just a bit early, and was able to park and enjoy the coffee I bought at the fast food restaurant on the way. I called Lisa to let her know I was outside. She led me to the area of the loss. They had cordoned off the area her daughter saw the earring fly into with volley balls (nice touch). The thatch was good and thick, perfect for hiding jewelry. I then asked to see the twin to the lost one. When Lisa showed it to me, I got a bit concerned; it was so small my pin pointer could only barely pick it up if I touched it, and my detector could only pick it up at about 1 inch. I proceeded real low and slow checking every faint sound. I then got a nice faint repeatable  signal, and went in with the pin pointer and my fingers, gently moving the grass around when I saw the thin pin shaped shank of the earring. I grabbed it, held it up, and handed it to a very surprised Lisa. This was a very precious item for her daughter, and she was very happy to know she would be able give it back to her. A real nice beginning of the day.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Cemetery in Valencia, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Arvin last night asking if I would be able to help find a lost diamond stud earring in a cemetery. I told him I would help him only after we went to the main office, and received permission to do the search. I did let him know ahead of time, that diamond stud earrings are one of the hardest pieces of jewelry to find, because they are made with such a small amount of metal. We agreed to meet today at about 3:00 PM.

When we met, Arvin’s wife Larraine explained that it was their daughter Lauren who had lost the earring. Lauren’s grandmother had given her those earrings, so there was a very strong sentimental value attached to the missing jewelry. Larraine, Lauren and I went to the office where they explained what had happened, and I said that I would only be there for that particular search and then leave, so the manager gave us the go ahead for the search. When Arvin took us to the area, he and Lauren showed me the boundaries, and explained that Lauren had been holding her baby brother while the family were paying respects to Larraine’s grandparents. While Lauren had her brother, he reached up out of curiosity, grabbed her earring, and pulled it right out of her ear. She reached up, and all she had was the back stuck to her ear. They checked the brother’s hand, no earring. They checked the mat Lauren was sitting on, no earring. They then deducted that it had fallen into the thick grass. The family had searched for the earring for 2 days without success, so Lauren went to the internet, and found me on The Ring Finders site.

I began by testing my equipment on the remaining earring, and was able to get about 1 to 1 1/2 inches on the detector. I then checked my pin pointer, and it had to touch the earring in order to get a response, so I knew I had to pin point well with my detector. I was receiving many signals, many were too strong, but checked them all. I searched the original area I was shown, but did not find it. Then moved a few feet lower, and received a faint signal. I put the pin pointer in the thick grass, and got a response. I kept the pin pointer in the grass as I moved the grass around. I could hear the pin pointer, and was looking at the earring which I could barely see in the dirt below the grass, but there it was. I grabbed it by the shank, brought it up, and held it out for Lauren, she and her father were totally surprised. One of the hardest items to recover, found and returned. Needless to say, we all felt real good at that moment.

Lauren sent the attached testimonial:

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 I lost my diamond stud earring in the grass at Eternal Valley Cemetery. My little brother accidentally took it off my ear and it fell somewhere. We looked for two days but we couldn’t find it. On Monday, May 1, 2017 that night I searched up on google how to find an earring in the grass” and that’s where I found out about this website called, The Ring Finders. I read through the website and it said something about someone being able to find their diamond stud earring, in the grass with the help of whoever is in charge of this website. I looked for more information and then I read a name. Steve. And so I assumed that he was in charge of this website. And I was right. His number was there, so I tried calling him. We arranged a meeting for the next day, May 2, 2017 and that’s on a Wednesday. At 3pm. At first, I was hesitant. Although I’ve read his blogs about him being able to help some people, I was still a little worried. I thought, would he really be able to help us look for my earring? Because I know we’ve looked for two days and we didn’t find it. But I took my chances. I knew that diamond earring had a sentimental value to me, so I just hoped he would be able to help us. And he did! It took him an hour and I almost thought he would never find it, but he did. He found it. We were all so happy. My parents, and especially me. It was really unexpected, but with the help of Steve and his equipments, my earring was found. I can attest to this event, and I am a witness that The Ring Finders is legit.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Returned with Elation.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I received an email from Carli last night about 10:15 asking if I could help her find her lost diamond stud earring she lost at the beach in the sand. I have been on enough searches for stud earrings to know that they are one of the most difficult items to find, in fact most detectors won’t even pick them up, and I made sure I let her know this upfront. I asked her about the spot of the loss, and she said it was lost on the towel line, which the county mechanically cleans on this beach daily, so I knew that this search was important. Carli was thinking early the next morning, when I told her I would meet her at the beach in 30 minutes, because of the type of search and the fact that there were too many factors that could make finding such a small item harder by the hour. We agreed to meet last night, and I was on my way.

I arrived just after 11:00, and she took me out to the spot. I had told Carli that the closer she could get me to the area would increase the likelihood of a recovery. She told me the earring came off her right ear when she was removing a piece of clothing so she had focused her search in that area earlier in the day. I told her though that I was going to search a wider area, because I have experienced that jewelry does weird things when it comes off. I found a few items such as foil, and a bobby pin, that Carli identified as hers. About 11:30, I was in an area that was to the left of her original position by about 10 feet when I received a good signal. I dug with my plastic trowel, and delicately shook the sand from the curved surface, when something sparkled. Carli’s husband said in the darkness with the flashlights that the sparkle caught his eye as well even as he was standing a few feet away. I reached down and then held up the earring Carli had lost. She expressed a considerable amount of excitement, saying “it was like a needle in a haystack”, which it truly was. The earrings I later found out had been given to her for a birthday present, what more can be said; the story continues. The attached picture says it all. Glad to be a maker of smiles.

Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


About 4 hours after finding a ring in Pacific Palisades in the morning on 1-2-16, I received a call from Aggie about her missing earring. She had been at the beach with her family, and when leaving realized it missing. Knowing that some earrings can cause fits for detectorists, I asked what kind of earring it was, and she replied it was a stud earring. My heart sunk; the hardest type of earring to find, and in beach sand. I told her I would be there in 30 minutes, and then I would try to see if my detectors would be able to pick it up at all, seeing she still had one that was not gone.

When we met at the beach Aggie showed me the other earring, and when I saw it my hope increased. Although it was small, the stone was completely surrounded by the gold mount, and not just attached by gold wires. Even with that my detector would only pick it up at about 4 inches, but with the moist sand, I was hopeful the little item did not sink too far. The area she showed me was quite large, but narrow, so I was not going to have to stretch the search too far. I began, and searched for about 10 minutes, when Aggie began to rethink the possibilities of the loss, so we switched the search area. I searched again for about 10 more minutes, and she again asked me to look in another area. I find a lot of times people can remember things that help in the search when they are there when I am searching.  When we were at this last location, I noticed a patch of sand that had been disturbed, and asked if that was where they had been sitting. She said it was, so I started searching that area when I got the sound I was looking for. Because the earring was so small and delicate, I used a plastic trowel, and a pin pointer to recover it. When I found it Aggie couldn’t believe it; so much sand, and such a little item.

Aggie then explained that this pair of earrings were given to her for a 10th wedding anniversary, which explained why they were so precious. A very happy day, and a great big smile to start the new year with.
