Lost Yellow Gold Mans Wedding Band Lost/Found At Dewey Beach Delaware

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

On 09/22/19 I received a text from Patrick regarding the loss of his gold wedding band on the beach in Dewey Beach, Delaware. Patrick had taken his ring off his finger, placed it inside of his baseball cap and set the baseball cap down on the beach with the rest of the items that he had brought to the beach. Patrick had placed his wedding band in the baseball cap for safe keeping while he went swimming. Patrick then forgot that he put his ring in the baseball and upon placing the baseball cap on his head a while later the ring fell out of the cap into the soft sand disappearing out of sight. I agreed to meet Patrick at the location of the lost ring so that I could search for it. Upon my arrival Patrick pointed out the area where he believed that the ring had fallen into the sand. I got right to work and began doing a grid search and on my first pass I located the lost wedding band and presented it back to Patrick.

Rings found Louisiana and Mississippi

I’m behind on making new posts but the calls for lost rings are still coming in and the rings are still being found. I thought I’d post a little update and a couple of the ones I got pictures of. I found a ring near Baton Rouge the other day that was in a fire, unfortunately I didn’t snap a picture of it because it was getting dark. The fellow had been doing yard work and burning limbs and it slipped off his finger (he wasn’t sure where) and I found it in the ashes. It survived the fire !! The ring was his fathers and had great sentimental value.

There was also a diamond engagement ring in Mississippi in a swimming area. After around 30 minutes of searching it was found in shallow water in a creek. I’ll post a picture of it.

Another one that comes to mind was found on a soccer field. It was a men’s wedding ring with an inscription inside the band. He had thrown a ball and it slipped off. I was able to find it in around an hour. I’ll post a picture of it as well.

There have been countless others since my last post (I’m horrible at getting posts made) but will try to do better.

2 Karat Diamond Solitare Lost Right After Marriage Proposal in the Waves at Malibu Beach, Found With Diligent Cross Griding

I received a call from Ryan yesterday. He was calling for his friend Kurt who had just proposed to his girlfriend down at the beach with a positive outcome. As they were celebrating their engagement there at the beach, with a flip of the hand, the ring slipped off his girlfriend’s finger and hit the sand as a wave crashed on the spot, and the ring was gone. They found me right away after searching themselves. I wasn’t far, and let them know I would be there quickly. We had the good fortune of the receding tide, so I knew I would have ample time to do a thorough search for the ring before the incoming tide made it unfeasible.

When I arrived Kurt and Ryan met me, and we went over what had happened, so I got ready for my search. I noticed that the ground was both sandy and rocky, so it was possible the ring might have gotten pulled out by the force of the water after the wave crashed. I began in the wet sand that the water had washed up on, and then started going into the water chest deep searching over rock beds, and sand. I found spoons, a railroad spike, a knife, and wire, but no ring. I then went over the area again starting from the beginning, but gridding in a different direction, pulling up more metal objects, but no ring. I then began another grid from the beginning in another direction, and I got a slight but good signal in the wet sand. I dug, and brought the sand up to the dry area, kicked it, and saw the glitter of gold. I had found Kurt’s ring which I held up for him. He came over very grateful, and happy that this token of his promise to his girlfriend had been recovered. What I believed happened is that the ring when buried, sank like a parachute with the band of the ring hanging down beneath the stone which makes it much harder to find with a metal detector. Under these circumstances, the ring might be only found by the detector coming from a particular direction and no other, which I believe happened in this search. Needless to say, perseverance paid off in this recovery, and this proposal ended in happiness. Great day!

Kurt sent the following testimonial:

“My worst fears had come true after proposing to my girlfriend. No she didn’t say no to “will you marry me?” but as we were taking celebratory pictures with our photographer, the ring fell into the waves below the Malibu Pier. My Fiance and I were overcome with emotion and our greatest day was shaping out to be one of the worst. My best friend who was there with us called his uncle, who referred us to Steve from the ringfinders.com and this man could truly not be more of a saint. He stayed and never gave up searching below the pier with full gear for hours. Finally, as I was losing hope Steve held up my glittering ring into the sun and I was overwhelmed by his kindness and diligence. Thank you again for everything Steve you truly saved the day.

I received a call this morning from Coles, she had lost her ring yesterday at the beach, and was unable to find it even though she had her friends helping. Other friends offered to let her use their metal detectors to go back and find the ring, but they proved ineffective in picking up the ring she was wearing at the time, so she did not try with them. I use the best and latest metal detecting equipment available, so I knew if the ring was still there I would find it. She explained what had happened, and it sounded like everything was in her favor, so we arranged to meet later in the afternoon when she had time available.

I got to the beach a little early, and found a spot in the shade, as it was quite warm today. When Coles arrived we walked out to the area of the loss. I could see where they had been searching the sand the day before. Coles showed me where they had been sitting, and where she was when she was putting her jewelry back on. She did not notice the ring missing until she was ready to leave, but had no idea where it had fallen. I began my grid, and was receiving a lot of electrical interference, so I reduced my sensitivity to diminish it in order to hear the ring when I was over it with my coil. Right when I got to the end of my first pass, I heard a nice sweet gold tone in the head phones, dug, and in my scoop was a big beautiful ring fully encircled with pave and baguette diamonds. I was so glad that I was able find such a ring for her. I believe her smile tells it all. It is always nice to be able bring out such a great smile!

Yumi called today with a slight air of desperation. She had been at the park with friends and their children. Then Yumi wanted to take some pictures of her 1 year old child, and the special gold babies ring that was given by Yumi’s stepmother. Her child had the ring on when they arrived at the park, but when it was time for the pictures, the ring was gone. Yumi and her friends combed the grass for at least 1 1/2 hours without being able to find the ring, and when she was feeling like giving up, her friend’s husband found my number, and encouraged her to call. When she called We went over what happened on the phone, and I let her know I would be there right away.

When I arrived, I met Yumi and her friend. Yumi went over where they had been that day. The area was not super large, so I knew that if the ring was still there, I would find it, I just needed to start a slow and deliberate grid. I started where they got out of the car and began my way towards where they ended up. I was receiving many different signals from surface metals. I found a few pennies and some tin foil. About half way, I got a real good double beep in the head phones, put the pin pointer in moving the grass around, when I saw the little gold ring. I reached in and held it up for Yumi. She came over happy and relieved that it was found. Everybody went home happy today!

Breeze called last night as I was finishing up my dinner. Her husband’s ring had been lost at the beach, and after a thorough search of the area, they were unable to find it. She was hoping I would be able to help. I asked her some questions, and found out that the loss occurred earlier that day, so the possibility of a recovery was good. Also, she told me that she had watched the ring fly into the sand, so she knew very well where the ring should be, which only enhanced the recovery possibilities. I let her know I would be on my way as soon as I got my equipment together.

When I got to the meeting place, Breeze, her husband Kartik, and a friend met me and walked me down to the area of the loss. It turned out to be a secluded area, and then she explained exactly what caused the loss. Kartik had given Breeze the ring to hold while he went surfing. Breeze was hold their dog’s leash in one hand, and had the ring on her thumb of the other hand. As soon as their dog saw Kartik coming from the water back to them, he jerked his leash, which caused Breeze’s other hand to jerk in the other direction, and the ring to fly off. When this happened she looked back to see the ring go towards the sand. It is truly amazing how hard it is to find a ring even though you know where it should be, but that is why I use the best equipment available in order to make that process as “painless” as possible. It took all of about 3 minutes to find the ring and have it back on Kartik’s finger. It takes the ability to ask the right questions, and have the most up to date equipment to make such a recovery possible. I am really happy to make others happy, and this was one of those times.

Ring lost at Mission Bay found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Michael was out on the beach at Mission Bay in front of his apartment when, while waving to someone, his loose fitting wedding ring flew off into the sand. A search by sifting through the sand proved fruitless, so, an online search was in order where he found The Ring Finders website. When I turned on my phone in the morning, I noticed the text and contacted Michael. We made plans for a 10am meet and search. After arriving, meeting Michael and his lovely wife, we went to the site while talking and getting the ring loss story on the way. The search area was fairly large, but, not ridiculous. All dry sand and maybe 30 X 100 feet or so. I started at one end and after 3-4 passes, several coins, and a dog tag later, his gold wedding band came to light. All smiles on the happy couple now and thank you for the reward.

I’d only been home for an hour from my first recovery for the day when I recieved a call from Henry who was still on the beach where he had just lost his platinum wedding ring.. here we go again I thought..

Recoveries by bicycle at the moment…

Unfortunately I was halfway through changing a blown head gasket on my ute when the first call had come in and hadn’t got any further with it after getting home from recovering Cambell’s lost ring when Henry called. I told Henry he’d need to be a little patient as I would be coming to his rescue by pushbike! I eventually caught up with him and on Brighton Beach about two hour’s later.

 

There you go Henry!

 

Henry and a friend had marked the location where they had been fishing when the ring was lost which made things a lot easier.

Henry’s “I Do” wedding ring freshly un-lost!!

I began a grid search and about four or five passes back and forth and bingo – right no’s, right sound, right ring equals Henry all smiles again..

Love what I do..

I was at home Friday night when I received a text from Kevin. He said that he had lost 4 rings that were very important to him, and wanted to know if I would be able help him. I sent a text back, and asked if he would call me so I could ask him about the loss, which he did as soon as he received the text. When he called I proceeded to ask my litany of questions to figure the best possible way to do the search, and evaluate what equipment I should bring in order to do an efficient search while there. We arranged to meet early the next morning.

We met at the stables at 7 AM in order to search before there were too many people around moving their horses, and complicating the search even more. It was a good choice, because there were few people, and no one in the area I was going to search. Kevin showed me what he had done, and where he had gone during his time at the stables the day before. He had fed 3 horses with heavy bags of feed, and gone into the 3 different stalls. He showed me where he had previously searched when he knew the rings were lost. I began by searching the feed bins, no rings. I then searched each of the stalls with the thick and soft fill used to line each stall, no rings. I then searched the tack shed where there was a good amount of hay for the rings to hide in, no rings. That left the road that Kevin had walked on to go to his horse trailer to search. The road was dirt, but very powdery, and about 4 inches thick, a perfect place for the rings to hide. So I began the search on the road, there was a lot of metal, but because of the quality of my detector, I was able disregard iron, and deep targets, and only concentrated on those signals that had the right tone and VDI reading. I searched about 40 feet finding similar sounding metals to gold (like aluminum). I kept the search going, and then when I got a good signal, I put the pin pointer in and found the first ring. I picked it up and handed it to Kevin. I swung the coil again, pin pointer in, and had the second ring, and the third, and then the fourth. When I handed Kevin the last ring he became very emotional explaining that those rings were his late mother’s, that as her only child, he would wear them on a chain around his neck to keep her memory close, and to lose them was just unthinkable. He gave me a great big hug, and I hugged him back knowing what comfort he had received by getting these rings back, he not knowing if they would ever be found. What a really great day!

I got a call from a gentleman from Alaska who was vacationing in Southern California. He was calling for Naim who was also vacationing in Southern California, only Naim was here from Paris, France. He had been at the beach with a friend, and wanted to go in the water, so he took his rental car key, wrapped it in a plastic bag, and buried it so no one would take it while he was away. The problem occurred when he was ready to leave. He and his friend grabbed their belongings, and walked off to the car to leave, only to find that they had left the key in the sand. They immediately went back, and searched the sand, but were unable to find the key. It is very hard to pinpoint an area in the sand after having left for even a short while. I let them know I was on my way.

When I got to the beach I met Naim and his friend. They showed me where they had been digging and combing the sand, so I began my search there. I covered the complete area without finding the key. I let Naim know that I would expand the search area which relieved him because he knew it had to be there. I continued my grid, and after 2 passes dug up a plastic bag. I reached down, and pulled it up, and there was the key wrapped up nice and tight. Naim was very happy. He was going back to Paris in just a few days, and I was glad to give him a bit of American hospitality.
