Lost Engagement Ring found at Colt State Park Rhode Island

  • from Woonsocket (Rhode Island, United States)

I received a call on Tuesday, July 20th, from a nice couple, Francesca and Sharon.  They had only recently got engaged, and Sharon lost her engagement ring, a lovely antique ring, a few days earlier.  They were at Colt State Park for a day of fun.  While swimming, Sharon’s ring fell off in the water.  They searched for the ring for a few days but couldn’t find it.  That’s when they decided to look for help on the internet and found my profile on  TheRingFinders website, I went to the park the same day they contacted me, but I couldn’t get out far enough into the water as it was high tide.  I met Francesca at the park three days later when it was low tide to continue the search.  After two hours of searching, I located the ring.  Francesca was amazed that the ring was found after being in the ocean for five days. She couldn’t wait to put the engagement ring back on Sharon’s hand.

I received a call for help from Jessika, who had lost her engagement ring while doing yard work.  Jessika told me that she and her fiance Kevin tried to find the ring, but after two days they still hadn’t found it.  They even  bought a metal detector and still had no luck finding the ring . That’s when they decided to search the internet for help.  They found TheRingFinders  website and decided to call me.  Kevin showed me the areas where they thought it could be, and I started my search.  In about twenty minutes, I found the ring.  As you can see, Kevin was very happy the ring was found  and couldn’t wait to tell Jessika, who was at work.  When he called her, I could hear her excitement.  She couldn’t believe that I found her ring .

Lost wedding ring on beach,Ventnor,New Jersey Recovered by NJ Lost Ring Finder!

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a guy asking if I could possibly find his gold wedding ring that he had lost the day before on the beach? He was throwing a ball with some others in the near knee deep water when he saw his wedding ring go flying from his finger as he threw the ball. Although he had searched for hours and the tide was coming in he had no luck finding it.

Although he could not meet me at the beach I told him I would go down today and search the area as the tide was going out and give him a call if I had any luck? I arrived at the beach area and began searching the area to the left of the lifeguard stand using a grid pattern back and forth as the water descended. After about an hour and a half I was down onto the area the water would have been at the time of the loss the day before. A few minutes later I got a nice gold signal from my metal detector,scooped up some sand in my scoop and there was the gold wedding band laying in the bottom of the scoop! I sent him a picture of the ring asking if it was his and he called seconds later with a big Yes! We agreed to meet the following weekend for the return. Another happy customer!

White Gold Diamond Ring Lost in the Sand in Litchfield, SC. Found and Returned

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Rhonda called me about 8:30 pm saying I had been referred to her by the Minelab Distributor in the area, and was hopeful I could help find one of her lost rings. She said that she had lost 5 rings in the sand after she had taken them off to apply sun tan lotion. She went on to say, that her and her boyfriend had found 4 of the 5 but couldn’t find her diamond ring. She was wondering when I might be available to help look for it. I don’t like waiting to do a ring search because too many things could happen between the time of loss and me getting there to search. So, I told her I’d be there in about 30 minutes, got the address, grabbed my detector and was on the road.

I called her when I got there and she met me in the parking lot. We walked out to the beach and luckily she knew exactly where the area was that the ring was lost. I think it took longer for the detector to turn on and me to get ready then it did to find her ring. She put me dead on the spot, 3 swings and I got the tone, looked at the numbers on the detector and saw the 9/10 and knew I had white gold. I took a small scoop of sand, checked the hole to make sure I had her ring and searched the scoop. I very gently pulled her beautiful diamond ring out of my scoop. She was a little shocked that it turned up so quickly. A great happy ending to their vacation.

Rhonda, thank you so much for trusting me to find your lost treasure. Have a safe trip home.


Lost Ring Orange Beach – FOUND! 2 Day Search!

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

Well, this was a tough one but it turned out great!  Crystal and her family were staying in Orange Beach, AL while they watched her daughter’s team compete in the World Series of Softball. Two days ago they were enjoying a much needed break cooling off in the Gulf of Mexico right before the sun went down. Crystal was standing in waist deep water trying to catch one of the bouncing water balls when tragedy struck. As the ball hit her left hand, both she and her husband saw her engagement ring fly off her hand and into the water. They looked and looked and raked their hands through the sand with goggles and masks and all of the volunteers they could get but they were unlucky and couldn’t find it. A very distraught Crystal did get a bit of luck later however when she found me on TheRingFinders and sent me an email. So yesterday after getting what I consider to be very thorough starting point directions, I began my search in the Gulf. I spent hours and ended up gridding out a really large area and I dug everything from fishing lures to a cell phone deep in the sand. I just couldn’t find it. I was bummed out and beat up from all the digging and I made the call to a very sad Crystal. Well I will say that the occasional one I can’t recover absolutely haunts me and I lay there when I got home last night thinking about anything that I could have done differently. After checking the tide graphs again, I decided that I would try even deeper and use a different mode on my machine. My wife gave me the okay this morning and even offered to come along. I started out neck deep and after only 2 passes I heard a strong signal. I switched the machine over so that I could hear what it was made out of and instantly heard that awesome gold tone. After a couple of gentle scoops, I had Crystal’s ring headed back to where it belongs. She was so sad yesterday, it was fun to hear her beside herself with happiness today. I’m very happy for you Crystal, thank you for giving me the chance to find your ring for you.

Long Lost Boston College Ring Found at Horse Neck Beach in Westport MA

  • from Woonsocket (Rhode Island, United States)

In August 2016, while searching for a lost wedding ring in the water, I came across a Boston College ring buried underwater in the sand. Someone had tried to scratch out the owner’s name, but with the help of a magnifying glass, I was able to identify the name, Christopher P. Martin.  I searched the internet and social media for months trying to find him. I even called Boston college twice to enlist their help in locating this graduate but that didn’t help.  After six months of searching, I decided to contact WJAR Channel 10 to see if they could help me in my quest to find the owner of the ring, and they agreed. After the story aired on Channel 10, I still didn’t hear anything. My wife had an idea.  Through the Boston College website, she connected with the Facebook of the Class of 1998.  She messaged both Chris Martin and a college friend of his with a link to the Channel 10 story.  Her detective work and the Channel 10 story paid off!  The friend forwarded the link to Chris Martin, and he contacted me.  Chris told me that his apartment was broken into about 15 years ago and his Boston College ring was stolen.  He agreed to do a follow-up story about the ring return with Channel 10. With the help of my wife and Channel 10, I was able to reunite the ring with its owner.  As you can see from the videos and photo, Chris was very happy to have this ring back!    videos……..

The Ring Finder in Pismo Beach

  • from Pismo Beach (California, United States)

Hi, my name is Larry Royal, I live and grew up(64 years) on the Central Coast of Calif. with Pismo Beach, Oceano Beach, Avila Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos and San Simeon as my main metal detecting beaches. I have been a treasure hunter all my life and metal detecting for over 15 years and know the area quite well. Since retiring from the work force 7 years ago what was once a hobby has now turned into a fun, full time quest to find lost treasures on the beach and return them to their owners.

I joined “The Ring Finders” as I saw it as a great opportunity to let more people know of my rewarded base service of helping people find their lost treasures. I have found many rings and lost items on the local beaches and only wish I could find every owner. I hunt in the ocean and on the dry sand and have good tips on how to help someone find their lost rings, necklaces, cellphones and other lost treasures.  Just 2 days ago I recovered a 1 ct diamond ring for a lady who was crying for 2 days over losing it and the smile and joy on her face when I handed back to her was priceless.

I’m very well know by the Pismo Beach LEO and the “Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area”, (aka; Pismo Beach) parks & beach personnel, if you contact them about a lost ring they will probably direct you to me.  I also have the resources of many of the local metal detecting people as I’m currently the Huntmaster, Librarian, Historian and “member at large” for the “Central Coast Treasure Hunters Association”  I use the latest metal detecting technology and equipment in and out of the water.

If I can be of any help to you please contact me.

Metal Detecting East Matunuck State Beach for Lost Engagement Ring & Wedding Band

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)
Found Platinum Engagement Ring with Diamond & Platinum Wedding Band with Multiple Diamonds

Found Platinum Engagement Ring with Diamond & Platinum Wedding Band with Multiple Diamonds

After a day at the beach, I got home to realize I had lost my engagement and wedding ring. I rushed back the next morning in hopes of finding someone metal detecting and eventually found one in the area to rent.  I searched for 4 hours to no avail.  My husband and I went back a few days later, renting the metal detector and searching for 4-5 hours again.  And again, coming home empty-handed.

Losing jewelry is a horrible feeling, and that feeling is amplified by 1000 when they are wedding rings. No amount of insurance money would bring back MY rings.

I had seen advertisements online for the Ring Finders, but I was hesitant to contact them. I had my doubts about identifying the location of my ring for them to find.  But after two unsuccessful trips, I figured there was a 50/50 shot they would return them, and I took the odds.

I emailed Keith around 6:30 on a Saturday night and had an email back within an hour that he would be calling in the morning. He called as promised and agreed to meet my husband back at the beach in around an hour.  My hesitation was beginning to ease!

We showed him the area where we believed the rings had been lost – the place we searched over and over with our rented detector – and he found them in less than 20 minutes.

The successful result speaks for itself! We could not be happier with our decision to reach out to Keith and are beyond thrilled that he could locate the lost rings.  In talking with Keith afterward, I found out that he does survival and search/rescue training for his career. He certainly takes that professionalism and determination over into this field.  I highly recommend Keith searching for anything of significant importance.
