Lost White Gold Diamond Woman’s Ring Set in Gahanna, OH. “FOUND”

  • from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact:

I received a call about a lost white gold diamond woman’s ring set. The set was lost in the snow and was unable to find it about three weeks early.

During that day when she lost her rings, she had visited many other locations, she had made many phone calls about her missing rings at the other places of business with no luck.

After metal detecting two other locations close by with no luck, the last place we looked, there was the rings. Found one then the other close by.

She was very happy to have her rings returned to her.

Rings found in the snowy Sierra

  • from Reno (Nevada, United States)

Imagine celebrating your 6 month anniversary only to lose both your engagement and wedding rings in the snow.  Well, this is what happened to Anushka and Tanmay.

Stopping to enjoy the snow Anushka decided to take her wet gloves off and ended up pulling both rings off with them. Unable to find them in the deep snow they did a search online and found The Ring Finders website.

Receiving the call too late to search that evening we decided to meet the next morning and since they knew the exact location they were in when they were dropped the rings were found within minutes and the 6 month anniversary celebration was back on.

Cassidy’s mother contacted me asking for help in searching for her daughter’s lost rings in the snow. Being that I was a bit delayed and that they already had rented a metal detector I happily provided a lot of tips over the phone on how to search their small neighborhood play park. Cassidy’s dad did all he could do with the rented machine through the cold snow but was not able to locate either of his daughter’s lost rings.

When her grandmother passed away these rings were handed down to Cassidy. It was obvious these heirloom rings hold a deep sentimental value by the whole family. She shared that she basically ran out into the fresh snow and threw one snowball bare handed then walked a few feet over to grab some more snow when she realize both rings were missing one from each hand! It’s quite possible she may have shook her hands a few times after that first throw to clear the cold snow from her bare fingers. These actions along with cold weather are notorious conditions for rings to get flung off the hand. Where rings land quite often can be quite a mystery and very difficult to locate without the proper recovery equipment and experience.  

It was a few days before I could arrive and the family did all they could with the rented metal detector with no success. It was now day number four and I’m quite sure each day up to this point the family continued to look nonstop. At this point the snow had pretty much melted away with a few patches here and there. Cassidy was rewarded for her efforts and did spot one of her lost rings a brilliant platinum diamond wedding band. It was found in the park grass where a snow man was previously. She had found it just a few hours before my arrival however the other ring a rose gold diamond wedding band was still missing in action. At this point the rented metal detector had been returned and the family was at a loss as to where the other ring hiding in the park.

After a short bit of time working the grass I got a hot signal that I had been looking for. Under a patch of snow I pulled Cassidy’s second ring, a rose gold diamond wedding band, from the ground. Undamaged and ready to be placed back safely on her finger. Cassidy and her whole family were relieved and very appreciative of the support they found through my services brought to them through TheRingFinders.com directory.

Dominic contacted me asking for some help in locating a lost gold ring. Due to the cold weather front that had just arrived the night before he was gathering some firewood for the home. While collecting the wood he lost a very sentimental gold wedding band. He had received this ring from his father ten years previous and to this day it has a lot of meaning and connection to his dad. After realizing the ring had gone missing Dominic was cautious not to walk around the wood pile too much as he didn’t want to step on the ring and damage or press it into the ground. He was also quick to make a post to social media looking for a metal detector. This is when someone told him to contact TheRingFinders.com as they had used our services in the past. Later that evening I was at his residence with my equipment in hand. Without wasting time I got the search under way as a full on snow storm was quickly approaching. 

Dominic clearly described his actions indicating that he did take some work gloves off during his work. He also used a riding lawnmower to haul the firewood up the driveway to the home. He became aware of the missing ring rather quickly so we had a very strong assumption the ring was most likely lost during his wood gathering actions.

I scanned the easy sections of driveway first, inspected the riding lawnmower then rounded back to the woodpile. Dominic’s ring was recovered just at the start of the wood pile. His ring was visually obscured under a few leaves as rings are much of the time. Dominic was rewarded with a hassle free recovery simply by reaching out to TheRingFinders.com and getting a Lost Item Recovery Specialist involved soon after his loss. He is happy to have his fathers ring back safely on his finger.

Lost engagement ring found – Central Oregon High Desert.

  • from Bend (Oregon, United States)

It certainly doesn’t always take a metal detector to find a lost ring; sometimes the methodical perseverance of an experienced metal detectorist is all it takes.  Such was the case last week in the Central Oregon high desert east of the Cascade mountains.

Maddie sent me a text message on Sunday evening, through theringfinders.com portal.  She and her fiance Tyler were visiting family property along the shores of scenic Lake Billy Chinook when a late season snow storm afforded an opportunity for some sledding on the rolling hills adjoining the lake.  Shortly after the foray, she discovered her engagement ring was missing…the sledding hill was the likely spot.

I offered to help but unfortunately, Maddie and Tyler were leaving to head back to Portland, and Maddie was uneasy about leaving specific information about the location of probably her most valuable possession, now lost.  Understandable, and probably smart, Maddie and Tyler waited out a miserable week in Portland and returned to the family property the following weekend to search.  Their search proved unfruitful, and she texted me again for help.  Although the window of time we both had was narrow, we managed to find some early morning time the following morning that worked for both of us.

A pre-dawn departure from my house, and one hour and 32 minute drive (with a bit of backtracking when Google maps led me astray) and I was at the family property with the couple.  I followed them back down the road a mile or so, to the sledding hill.  What must have been a pristine wonderland when snow-covered was now an obvious ATV playland, covered with decades of hillside erosion, beer cans, pull-tabs and bottle caps.  The snow had melted, leaving a layer of water-saturated silt, slick and muddy.

After a series of questions about where they had been sledding, I put them to work marking out likely areas…the bottom of the two hills there were sledding on, the location where the car was parked, an area where Maddie had taken off her gloves to take a picture…and started a methodical grid-search patterns of each of those spots, working both north/south and east/west to be sure nothing was missed.  Three-plus hours of marching through the dirt and mud produced hundreds of false targets, one Apple iPhone, but no engagement ring.  I told the forlorn Maddie that I was reasonably certain that the ring was not in the areas that we had searched (of course it’s always possible that we miss objects, but I had been pretty careful) and that we needed to think about where else it might have been lost.

After consideration, two other locations were possible.  First, was the area where she had first noticed it missing.  On the drive back they had stopped alongside the road and she noticed it was missing. They had very carefully searched that graveled roadside, to no avail.  Also, the driveway and parking area of the house where they had loaded to head out on their sledding adventure.  We stopped at the roadside area first, where I spent twenty minutes-or-so, without luck.

We arrived back at the driveway where I started with a litany of the usual questions:  At what location(s) had the vehicles been parked?  Were you the driver or passenger?  Where did you load items into or out of the vehicle?  Did you do anything else in the parking lot?  After the examination there were two likely spots.  An area on the east of the driveway where the Jeep had been parked (and where Maddie remembered taking off her gloves) and an area to the west where they had parked the Jeep to unload upon arrival from Portland.

I grabbed the detector and started swinging the closest area, on the east side of the parking lot, working through still snow-encrusted gravel, when to my right I noticed unusually rapid movement.  I couldn’t hear the commentary though my metal detector headphone, but Tyler (who had walked over to examine the previous unsearched area to the west where they had unloaded the Jeep when arriving from Portland) had obviously made a momentous discovery – what metal detectorists call a surface find.  Walking briskly toward Maddie, to my left, and holding her treasured engagement ring high for all to see, Tyler had made the discovery of the day, and was able to present his beautiful bride with her engagement ring, a second time.

In Maddie’s eyes Tyler is a hero, and deservedly so.  I’m pleased that I was able to assist in assuring that Maddie’s ring is back where it belongs, and another happy ending is able to be recorded on theringfinders.com.

Congratulations Tyler and Maddie.  I wish you all the best in your coming nuptials, and hope the future is filled with adventure and excitement…with your rings securely affixed to your fingers.

Happy Couple

Back where it belongs!

Quogue Lost Wedding Ring in Snow

  • from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact:

I was in Hampton Bays just finished finding an I-Phone. I was checking email and messages and saw a text from Jacqueline. She said that last night while taking out the garbage that her ring came off and was in the snow.  I go to directions to the house and headed over there.  While in route I called her and said was on my way, she said that wasn’t home but working in the city.  She told the area that the ring was lost in and that I should call if there was a problem.

There was a lot of snow and ice by the garbage cans as well as a lot of bushes. I searched the area with no luck. I then started in the bushes and they were over grown a little so It was hard getting the detector head into them. After moving the branches in different direction I finally got a signal like ring. on my hands and knees I dug out the ring.  Back at the car I called Jacqueline and told her I found the ring. She said that she would not be out to the house till the weekend.  We agreed to hide the ring in a spot that she could find easily.

I-Phone Lost in snow Hampton Bays

I received a call Late Tuesday from Gianna telling me her husband was out shoveling snow and when he came into the house He couldn’t find his phone he had it in his pocket and realized it must have come out in the snow.  I ws told they looked for it till it got dark and then called me.

Two Sets of Lost Keys in One Day in Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

February 15, 2021

I received two calls today. The first call came from Natasha. She was late for her massage appointment. She put her keys in her pocket and ran the three blocks. Since I was not busy and lived only minutes away and I told her I would take a look.  I searched the route she took and checked the soft snow along the sides. My gut instinct was that they were most likely picked up.  The more I thought about it, the more likely it was that they were close to home. We headed back and I searched where I thought they would most likely be. While there, the front door of the nearest home opened. A gentleman asked what we were looking for.  Natasha described her keys to him, after which he turned to go back inside and returned with her keys!!! Success sometimes doesn’t come with the detector.

The second call came around 3:30 pm. Ali had lost his keys while sledding down a hill on Friday. It was Monday.  After chatting with him, he had done everything right. From immediately searching, to checking places where someone may have placed them if they were picked up. From what he described and what he did it seemed very likely they were there. We just had to find them. Ali described three places where he wiped out on the sled. Both of us searched the hill in detail. Ali remembered that his brother had videoed some of the runs, including two where he went off to the side and bailed. We watched and were able to narrow down the search areas. After two very loud beer cans, we searched the second crash site.  I mentioned that very often, after searching and checking a variety of signals, I would hear “the” signal. When that happens I stop and stand up.  Moments   later I got another signal. I let Ali dig it.  Sure enough, there they were. Ali was ecstatic.  He stopped and said, “Funny, you just stopped and stood up” .

 

Ring Lost in Surf at Whangarei – Found after Four Days

  • from Paihia (New Zealand)
Merryn was having a swim at Whangaumu Bay near Whangarei in New Zealand when she felt her wedding ring slip off the finger. The water was too murky to see it, and it would have buried itself in the fluid sand instantly anyway.
It was with a heavy heart she walked away from it.
Shortly after, Merryn happened across a detecting mate of mine and mentioned it to him. Steve wasn’t able to help as it was a marine recovery – but he knew I could as an experienced ringfinder, and passed on Merryns details.
Four days after the loss, I arrived at Whangaumu with a rough verbal guide as to where it was, to get me started until Merryn was able to get there and pinpoint the spot.
I walked the dry sand above the high tide line looking for evidence of where she had been, and spotted two old towel marks in the sand. Must be the spot and I started work.
After a couple of hours being slapped and dunked by the surf, Merryn arrived and confirmed I was in the right place, but the towel marks weren’t hers! It was pure coincidence or human behaviour unconsciously picking the same spot for whatever reason!
The surf was quite dumpy with a lot of sand flowing down the beach. I told Merryn that in these conditions with the four day head start, odds were getting slim. She had to leave to go to another commitment so after watching anxiously for several minutes, left me to it.
Thirty minutes after she had driven away, I picked up a deep tone. Fanned the sand away with my feet and looked down through the suspended sediment to see the outline of her ring in the deep crater.
I scooped it, switched off the machine and headed straight back to the car to TXT her that her ring was now secured 🙂
This morning, I met with her to hand back her freshly polished ring…
Then promptly headed off to find another one nearby, this one lost in the sea five weeks ago.
That one was also saved and will be reunited with the owner in a couple of weeks. Watch this space 🙂
