Maureen called me recently about a lost ring. Her brother, Jack, lost his Anheuser Bush retirement ring in his backyard about three years earlier. He had only had the ring a short time and lost it while tossing a football to his son. Maureen’s niece found me on the internet and suggested that her aunt contact me. Maureen was hoping to recover the ring as a Christmas gift. I searched Jack’s backyard for her. All the while, Maureen held her “good luck charms” and prayed to St. Anthony. After two hours of searching and digging up lots of pull tabs, I found the ring. Maureen was so happy to give this gift to her brother. Jack was thrilled to be reunited with this memento of his years of service to the company.
Gene Leclaire lost his wedding band while removing ice off his windshield wipers at Dunkin Donuts on Washington Ave in Albany New York. It was in the beginning of February when upstate New York was covered with over 15 inches of snow during a brutal storm when Gene pulled off to clean his car and his worst nightmare was realised. The 14 karat yellow gold wedding band that had a number of diamonds and was a gift from his wife had slipped off and fell into the snow somewhere. To top it all off it was a custom ring made to be a replica of the brides grandfather’s wedding ring. Gene suffered for 3 weeks with stress and anxiety wondering if he would ever see the custom ring again. He called Steven Bell a member of theringfinders.com and was assured to be optimistic. On 2/22/15, after 1 hour of searching snow banks pushed together by plow trucks Gene was reunited with the beloved ring that signified his love and marriage. See video
On February 8, 2015, I received a call from Steve regarding his lost wedding ring. He explained that he had lost the ring while cleaning out the gutters and shoveling at his home. Steve searched desperately for hours and even borrowed a metal detector from a family member, but he had no luck. He decided to consult the internet to see if there was anyone who could help him. Steve located me on The Ring Finders website, noting that I had recently found a military school ring in the snow. He contacted me during a snowstorm to see if I could help. I decided to go to his home immediately for fear that the new snow would only make the search more difficult. I located Steve’s wedding ring in fifteen minutes under a few inches of snow. Steve, and his wife, were amazed and very happy to have the ring back.
I received a call from Judy this evening around 6 pm asking if I could find her wedding ring that she lost the night before while she was throwing ice melt on her sidewalk. I said if it was in her yard I would find it.
I met up with Judy at her home and she showed me where she had been throwing the ice melt. I turned one my trusty spectra V3i on and with 15 feet of where Judy was standing I found her white gold wedding ring buried in 3 inches of snow. She was very happy when I called her over and showed her where her ring was. Thank you, Judy.
I was out looking in a snow bank for some keys for a couple the other night, when I got a call from Dan. He said he would like to rent a metal detector to find the ring he had lost earlier in front of his house. I advised that I could come over and find it for him and save him the frustration of learning to use a detector and failing to find the ring due to a lack of experience. He agreed, and as soon as I finished recovering the keys I rushed over to Dan’s house. Dan and his brother came out to show me where they thought it was lost so I setup to grid the area. My first pass I deliberately went further along than they had indicated, at which point I was corrected and told that it wouldn’t be there and I should walk back toward the two fellows. I asked them if they would like me to dig the signal I just got or ignore it, because it sounds pretty good. Dan says sure if you want to, so I did and up popped the 22k Men’s Gold Ring.
Not where they expected it to be

I received a call yesterday from a young lady who’s nephew lost his older brothers gold signet ring that was handed down to him from his aunts late father. You can image how devastated the lady was to find out that her nephew who was throwing a snowball and lost the ring that he wasn’t supposed to be wearing.Emily went on to google to search for ways to find the lost ring, she was thinking of renting a metal detector when she found The Ring Finders website and to her surprise someone who could help her locate the ring…Me!Sometimes these searches can be very difficult depending on how accurate the person is in regards to where they were throwing the snowball… in most cases many snowballs are being thrown in all directions in this case he only through one at a specific area of the back yard.After only 3 minutes or so I got a nice ring tone on my Whites V3I and I bent down with my pinpointed to discover the lost gold signet ring in about 2 inches of snow…I love the smiles you can find when you locate someones lost ring! The story was that Emily’s father passed away many years ago and his signet ring with his family crest was to be copied and given to all the family members when they turned 21. If that original ring was lost there would be no way to have others made from the original… I know that the young man felt horrible for what happened, we all learn from our mistakes and the ring is back where it needs to be and in 5 years time he will have one of his own. I love my job! If you lost something and need it found…Call: Chris TurnerVideo to the search…https://youtu.be/6oCMMd9hQlU
You can rent a metal detector and search for hours and not find your lost ring…Dose that mean your ring is not there? I have found over 300 lost rings for people over the past 20 years and I’d say more then 60% of my clients had rented a metal detector before hiring me to find their lost ring.
A very small percentage of people who rent a metal detector will find their lost ring as most people have never used a metal detector before, and the one’s you rent are not the best out there. The other factor is where to look for your lost ring…
For me, in most cases, I find the ring nowhere close to where people think they lost it. So how many people are out there who rented a metal detector and searched for hours to just gave up because the detector was beeping everywhere and they couldn’t find the ring where they thought they’d lost it…
