I got a frantic phone call from Laurie this afternoon about her lost half carat diamond earring that she was pretty sure was lost somewhere in her yard near the beach in Oxnard this past Sunday. She informed me she had moved a lot of the dirt in a panic to try and find her earring. The earring had special meaning to her and she was hopeful I would find it. The stem was so small that my Minelab Equinox really couldn’t pick it up so I had to get down on my hands and knees with my propointer and go inch by inch through the side yard. After finding a few rusty screws and a staple I was just about to finish up the location and move to another spot in the yard as Laurie was adamant that she hadn’t been in the area I was in and it wasn’t there. Something told me to check it further and literally 3 seconds later I got a tone, pushed the dirt around and pushed the earring out with my probe.
Needless to say Laurie was overjoyed and the tears were flowing. There is hardly a better feeling in the world than helping someone in need and being part of Ringfinders does it for me.
Susan called to ask for help in finding her husband’s lost tungsten wedding band. It was slung off his wet finger a month before when opening their camper door. Carrie and I left the next day for the 70 mile trip. On arriving, we found the grassy search area to be small in the RV lot. We began the search of the lot. Next to the grassy area was a fenced area for a water system. Sid hunted the fenced area facing the RV. After 2 hours of searching and re-searching the yard and rock driveway, we had not found the ring. Susan, Carrie and Sid had gathered up near the rear side of the water system to discuss the next step when Carrie saw a sparkle from the rocks around the water system. In plain view laying on the rocks was the ring. Lost items are not always where you expect them to be. After the happy trio took pictures, we were on our way back home. Thank you, Susan, for your generous reward.
I’m new to the site but have been metal detecting for over 20 years. I recover items using a state of the art detector and am excited to be able to help so give me a call. Metal detecting takes years of experience to get good at so please give me a call before wasting money on buying or acquiring a rental detector. I can help !!
Rings, jewelry, relics, coins, caches, hidden family treasures. I can find it all.
After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.
Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.
As a couple arrived for a dinner party, they had no idea they were about to experience the terrible feeling of losing a sentimental possession that was handed down from mother to daughter. There is good news, though. Stepping out of the car and hearing the “ping, ping” of the earring bouncing off the car door told us that the earring is in the general location of the car door. Once I finally arrived, the couple showed me the approximate location of the area that was under the car door when the earring fell. After only minutes of searching the couple was reunited with their earring!
Just in case you are wondering, yes, my earlier statement was “finally arrived.” There was a delay in my arrival to find the earring, but you will have to read the NewYorker.com article to know why there was a delay and how I managed to complete the trip!

Finding an earring is no easy task, but this particular earring was a larger one, and the grass was well manicured, both of which are to my advantage. Most earrings are small and challenging for the average metal detector to sense. If you don’t have the extremely sensitive equipment necessary to find small valuables, don’t waste your time renting a metal detector that may not get the job done. Give me a call or send me a message and I’ll help you get the job done. (252) 775-1307
