How to Find a Lost Ring In The Garden Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Wedding Ring in Ojai CA found!

I got a call yesterday from Elizabeth who was getting a little gardening in while dodging the rain showers when she realized her wedding ring was missing. It was getting dark and while she franticly searched she was unable to locate it and found me. We scheduled a time for me to come out this morning and find the ring. She had narrowed down the area to about 400 sq ft and while this was good for me the issue was most of the area was covered with various knee high succulents with the majority of them having very sharp points protruding out. I checked the area without the plants and did not find the ring so I grabbed my pinpointer, got on my hands and knees and began an inch by inch search of the area. Without discrimination I was pulling up nails, wire and a penny or two as I worked my way into the space. I heard Elizabeth shout that she didn’t think there were any black widows in there but at this point I was committed to finding the ring so even though I had no gloves(left in the car) I kept going. About a minute later I got a nice buzz on my MI6 and pulled away the aloe leaves and there it was, the elusive wedding ring. If you have lost a ring or other piece of jewelry don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 so I can begin the process of returning it to you. Visit me at for more information as well.

Lost My Ring While Raking Leaves In The Lower Mainland/Vancouver

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Well it’s that time of year again when people are losing their jewelry while gardening and raking leaves, It happens every fall! The sad thing is most people just give up the search after they can’t find their lost item. I got a call from a young man named Joe who didn’t give up the search and found online while looking to rent a metal detector.

Joe explained to me over the phone that he felt that the ring might have come off his finger when he took his gloves off to answer his phone in his front yard. He wasn’t 100% sure but he thought it was the most likely place where the ring could be lost. Joe searched himself but to no avail,

He was not ready to give up the search so he had me come out to take a look.

I was excited for the challenge but I only had a 4 hour window before I started work so I drove out to his place (over an hour drive each way) and to both of our surprise the search only took 10 seconds! That’s right… turn on the machine 10 seconds later I found his ring, I have the best job in the world… I get to make people smile, Joe was in a little bit of shock as he couldn’t believe I was holding up his ring so quickly. In over 500 recoveries that I have made, you get lucky once in a while! I was extremely happy to have found this ring for such a nice young man.

White Gold Wedding Band Lost on Backyard Hillside in Los Angeles, CA…Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I received a text from Jason this morning about a ring he had lost on the hillside behind his house two weeks ago. He wondered if I would come out and look for it. I called as soon as I read the text, and discussed the situation with him. I figured if it was lost in his backyard, it hadn’t moved very far, and the odds of finding it were good, so I told him I would be there as quickly as possible.

When I got to his house, Jason met me, and took me to the location of the loss. It was a very steep hillside with a very sandy soil that would swallow a ring almost as quick as beach sand. I could see that there was a lot of sand that had been moved, which was down further on the slope. I figured the ring probably had slid down the slope with the sand movement while he was looking for it, so I began my search in the lowest part of the sand pile. Jason told me that he had spent hours searching the hillside, which explained how so much sand had been moved down the hill. I did not receive the signal I was looking for so I started moving back up the hill towards the original area of the loss. When I got to the area he showed me where he knew the ring came off, I heard the tone I was looking for, and pulled out my pin pointer to narrow down the search. With a little movement of the sand I saw Jason’s ring. He happened to be in another area of the hill when I found it, so I called to him to show him that I had found it. He came over relieved, and amazed that it was still in the same area he had lost it in. It was certainly wonderful to have made his day, because he had only been married a little more than a year, so this was a great loss to him and his wife; a lot of happiness was spread around today!

Lost Ring Found Barre Vermont

  • from Burlington (Vermont, United States)

Another happy day seeing an owner reunited with her ring today!

My neighbor and longtime friend referred me to a woman who was urgently needing to find a ring she had lost while gardening, and didn’t know how to go about finding it. The ring was an older, monogrammed gold ring. It was given to her by her Great Aunt, so it had lots of sentimental meaning to her. My neighbor told her “I know just the person who can find it for you, he has metal detectors and belongs to The Ring Finders”. She called me and I went to her house shortly after to do the search.

After a quick search, it was back on her finger! She was very happy to get it back, especially because the area around her home has many tenants and she didn’t want it going into the wrong hands.

I’m also excited, because she has invited me to come back someday and detect around her home, which is over 100 years old. I’m sure that we will find many interesting things that will bring the history of the house alive.
