how to find a lost ring Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Mother’s ring in Swan Lake Maine results in a double recovery.

from Rockport (Maine, United States)
Contact: 1-207- 542-7642

Jennie was wise in remembering to remove the platinum mother’s ring from her finger, giving it to her husband Wade to keep in his zippered pocket while she was waterskiing. Unfortunately  after returning back to their camp Wade jumped into the lake to move a swim float, at some point his pocket became unzipped and the ring came out  Wade showed wisdom too in contacting a ring finder for help. The search took about 5 hours as there were many targets in the waters of this 100+ year old lake house . Having used both of my air tanks the first day, I told Wade I wanted to come back and continue my search. I returned to the site a few days later and found the ring buried in silt, about twenty minutes after starting my search. Although the ring matched the description, I sent a photo and called Wade to confirm. Wade informed me that it was the ring and how happy they were that it was found. Since I still had plenty of air I asked Wade If I could stay and continue to search the area. Wade said sure, I told him I would let him know if I found anything cool. I ended up finding a second ring, a sterling silver men’s band buried 7 inches in sand and sent a photo of it to Wade. It was a cool find because it turned out to be Wade’s wedding band which he had lost 10 years earlier. Even cooler was the fact that both rings were recovered on the day of their 12th wedding anniversary. A portion of the generous reward I received is being donated to the Area Interfaith Outreach- Child Hunger Program in Rockland, ME which provides take home meals for children to eat on weekends and vacations when they don’t have access to school provided breakfast and lunch.

 

 

Ring lost at La Jolla Shores found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

James was here in town for a wedding, and staying at a beach resort at La Jolla Shores. Yesterday was a hot and dry day, so, He was out enjoying the beach and throwing a ball to his cousin in the cool, shallow water in front of the resort. Well, we know the scenario here! Ball gets thrown, and his family crest, signet, heirloom ring decides to take a dip too. Ring hits water, sinks quickly into the sand, and disappears. An online search brings up The Ring Finders website and my contact info. The tide had already receded a bit, and was still heading out, so, my wife and I jumped into the car and headed to the location. We were actually able to find parking not too far away, which two weeks ago would have been impossible on a Saturday afternoon. We meet James out on the beach and he shows us the search area. He makes his best guess at where “ground zero” was and I start a spiral search out from there in the wet sand . Half hour later and no ring, I start a cross grid and expand out beyond my initial grid. Another half hour later and only two targets total, I finally get a sweet, solid 16 on my Equinox just outside my initial search area. Sure enough, James’s ring pops out of the shallow plug of sand. A pleasure to meet you James, and thank you for the reward.

Ring Lost in Lake Recovered Metal Detecting Richmond Virginia

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-598-1435

June 30th, 2019 In Chesterfield (near Richmond) Virginia, Dustin was playing on a boogie board in the lake behind his home. He felt his ring slip off and quickly mentally marked his location and where it dropped. The ring is a family heirloom, which made the loss even more heart rending. After buying a detector and not being able to find it himself, he called me.

The water depth was about 4 feet deep, and the mud was almost a foot deep. Dustin had searched the area so the bottom was disturbed. There was a chance the ring had been inadvertently pushed into the mud, so I needed to be able to locate deeper targets. I started with my ATMax and a standard coil, but the signals were erratic. I switched to my Excalibur underwater detector and started to locate and remove the usual trash targets like fishing lures and pieces of aluminum. When I didn’t find it after an hour, I re-interviewed Dustin and visualized how a strong young man like Dustin would have been pushing his board. Using that information, I went a little deeper into the water and hit on a clear target. The depth and mud made it difficult to extract. Another successful recovery of a family treasure!

Dustin’s Beautiful Classic Ring

Lost Wedding Band Found in the leaves

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-598-1435

November 26th, 2017 I got a call from Ciaran.  He asked if I could search for his ring in deep leaves. He had a good idea of where he lost it in a field at the beautiful Morven Park International Equestrian Center. I was unable to search until several days later. Due to rush hour traffic, the 40 mile trip took 2 hours. Got to respect Northern Virginia traffic! Once I arrived, I located the ring in about 15 minutes.  It was under several inches of lovely fall leaves. Then 2 hours of driving in rush hour traffic to return home but, this time with a smile on my face after reuniting another ring with its owner:)

Lost Platinum Engagement Ring Found On The Beach At Bethany Beach, Delaware

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

On 08/23/19, I received a email from Nicole regarding the loss of her Platinum engagement ring on the beach in Bethany Beach, Delaware on 08/20/19. Nicole said that she had placed her ring in her lap while applying sun block and that she stood up and walked towards the ocean to see some dolphins that had been seen out in the ocean. Nicole said that she stood there for about twenty minutes before she realized that her ring was missing. After realizing that her ring was missing, Nicole along with family and friends began to search the sand looking for her ring. Some family members also downloaded a metal detector app to their cellphones in an attempt to find the ring. All of the searching on the day of the loss and also on the day after met with negative results and Nicole left Bethany Beach without her engagement ring. After receiving the email I was able to talk with Nicole on the phone and we went over the the how and where of the loss of her ring. Nicole told me that she remembered that she was sitting in line with a trash can that was on the beach to the north of the beach access. Nicole was concerned about the fact that it had been three days since she had lost her ring and she ask if I thought that the ring was still there on the beach. I told Nicole that it was possible that the ring had been found by someone else with a metal detector, Nicole told me that she still wanted me to look for the ring. I told Nicole that I would not be able to do the search until the following evening and she still wanted me to look for her ring. On 08/24/19, I went to the beach off Central Avenue in Bethany Beach and began the search for Nicoles ring. I started a grid search of the area and after ten minutes and three passes I was able to locate and recover Nicoles ring only a few inches down in the soft sand. I called Nicole and gave her the good news, she was very relieved that her ring had been recovered because she would be getting married during the month of October 2019. On 08/25/19, I met Nicole and her father in Bethany Beach to return her ring to her after the drove to Delaware from their home in the state of Virginia. Congratulations Nicole on your upcoming wedding and thank you for trusting me with the recovery and return of your ring!

Below is a copy of the original email that Nicole sent me.

Good Morning,
I lost my engagement ring Tuesday afternoon at Bethany beach in front of central boulevard. I was putting sunblock on and felt the lotion in between my ring so I slid it off and placed it on my lap while I smoothed out the lotion on my hands and I got distracted when I heard a little girl say there were dolphins and looked out to see my niece and sister pointing at something in the water so I immediately stood up and walked over to the ocean I must have been standing there for 20 minutes before I realized I didn’t have my ring on my hand. I ran back and searched everywhere I was sitting in the sand and couldn’t find it. After not being able to find it on my own I went back and told my family what happened and we all rushed back and searched everywhere in the near area we could but that minute a storm was coming in and the lifeguards evacuated everyone off the beach so we barely had time to look for it. We tried going back the next day and searching about the area we were but we couldn’t find it and weren’t sure as to the exact area at that point. I live 3 hours away and reported it to the beach patrol and police. My cousin found this website online just recently and I know it’s been 3 days so I’m emailing to see if you think there’s any chance at all it could still be there to go look. I was told people with metal detectors walk around early every morning so I really have lost all hope at this point. I’m also no longer in town but would drive back if there was a chance it was still there

Thank you for reading

Lost White Gold Wedding Band Found At Gordons Pond State Park Beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

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

On 08/22/19, I received a call from Tory asking for my help in finding her white gold wedding band that had been lost in the sand at Gordons Pond State Park Beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Tory said that she had taken her wedding band and engagement ring off her finger and placed them in the pocket of her husbands shirt for safe keeping. Tory said that the shirt was placed on her husbands backpack that was laying on top of the sand and that their 18 month old daughter grabbed the shirt and ran with it. Tory said that both of the rings fell out of the shirt pocket into the sand and that her husband was able to recover her engagement ring and that they were unable to locate the wedding band. After talking with Tory, I drove to the beach to meet her and to start the search for her ring. After being shown the area of the sand where the engagement ring was found I began a grid search and was unable to find the wedding band. Torys husband pointed out a hole in the sand that he and his daughter had dug and he felt that the ring may be in the hole because their daughter had carried his shirt that contained the rings over to the hole. I checked the hole with my metal detector and found that the ring was not in the hole so I then asked Tory and her husband to move all of their beach items from the area where they had been sitting so that I could search the area without interference from the metal beach chairs and the metal shaft of the umbrella. After the items were removed I continued with the search and was able to locate the lost ring just in front of where a beach chair had been sitting and only a few feet from the hole that I had previously searched. The lost ring was then returned to a grateful Tory.

Found: Diamond Ring

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-703-598-1435

On the night of October 19th, 2018, Noelle was walking her dog in an open area near her parent’s home. The dog decided to run and she was pulled off balance. Later, Noelle realized her beautiful diamond ring was missing. Not knowing where she lost the ring, she carefully searched her parent’s house and retraced her steps. When she couldn’t find the ring, she called me.

Noelle did a great job showing me where and how she walked the dog that night. Because it was dark, she could not pin-point exactly where she was when the dog pulled her off her feet. The field is directly under power lines, which can sometimes interfere with metal detectors. After making the proper adjustments to my detector, I searched the area for a couple of hours. I then traced Noelle’s steps back to her parent’s house. I also went through her car. I was not ready to give up. After a business trip, I planned to return with another detectorist and expand my search area,

I happened to be passing through the neighborhood on the way home from another search (gold hoop earring) when I decided to stop and do a quick search. This time I entered the field from the opposite direction. It was getting difficult to see in the dark. While I was walking back to the car I found the ring. It was further away from where Noelle thought she had fallen. There had been enough foot traffic in the area to push the ring into the clay-like soil. Because it was so late, I returned home and called Noelle with the good news. I met with her a few days later to return the ring.

If I can be of service, the fastest way to get me is to text or call 703-598-1435.

 ****Miles was at Venice Beach, CA. When he lost his silver ring in the sand. He called me and a hour later I met him. He had taken time to hold me a parking space which saved a lot of time. 

It was getting a little windy and his friends were ready to leave. Because he was able to stay in the location it made it easy to find his ring. Within 10 minutes my detector was able to identify ahis silver ring hiding under the sand. 

We took a couple photos then everybody headed for home. Another successful search and return.

Lost gold wedding ring in Puyallup River recovered

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-618-8194

  

I got a call from Dave and he asked if I was the metal detecting guy. I said, “Yes, what did you loose and where?”. He proceeded to tell me that he was still at the Puyallup River and that he had just lost his gold wedding ring while fishing. I could tell he was quite upset about the situation. After requesting that he take several photos of the exact area and how to mark the location I agreed to do a search the next morning.

Being a river hunt I wasn’t quite sure if a recovery would be successful or not but we had to at the very least give it a shot. Our Great North West is full of faster flowing rivers often making it extremely challenging to recover a ring. However we all know the results of not trying, and no one is happy with that result. Come along for the adventure and see how this lost river ring gets recovered and returned to its very appreciative owner.

Lost Gold Wedding Band in the Ocean on Caswell Beach, Oak Island NC, 100th Return!

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

This ring call came as I was walking out the door en route to help find a lost Rolex watch, which wasn’t found and turned into a much longer search than I anticipated. When Matt first called, I explained the situation to him, but told him that I expected to be finished in time to meet him at his location during low tide. By the time I finished the first search, and arrived at the beach, where Matt had lost his gold wedding band, it was an hour and a half before high tide. I met Matt and his wife, Mary and we walked out to the beach. Matt pointed out the area he lost his ring, and told me he and a friend had been playing catch with a football. Matt said he noticed his ring felt a little loose. A couple of catches later, he felt his ring slip off his finger and disappear in the ocean. Matt was savvy enough to immediately get some land marks, which helped. From his description on when and how he lost his ring, I knew I didn’t have much hope of finding it on this trip. I went ahead and started a grid line, trying to get out as far as I could without dying. I checked with Matt on whether I was going out far enough and he said both Mary and her friend thought he was farther out when he lost it. After being hit and thrown by three consecutive waves, the last one, making me lose my grip on both the scoop and detector, and having my swim suit down around my thighs, I decided to call it a night. I felt so bad that I wasn’t able to give Matt a descent effort in finding his ring that I promised him I’d be back at the next low tide, which just happened to be at 3:24 a.m. We had one more chat before I left so I was sure I had all the details.

I got back to the search area at 2 a.m. a little tired but ready to go. We’re in the moon phase just after a new moon, so there was absolutely no moon light to search by and it was darker than dark out there. I started a grid line search trying to keep the lines straight and in line with each other with the aid of my head lamp. I went from an invisible line I had paced off earlier, from the top of the beach next to a “Keep off the Dunes” sign. I knew then the beach was going to be a lot different almost 6 hours later. I started a little west of the landmark Matt gave me and went back and forth from the top of the beach to the low tide line and nothing. I kept expanding the search area both east and west and still came up empty. By now, it’s 4 a.m., I’m tired, sweaty, and sore, I’ve done close to 4 miles of walking in two separate searches. I’m 100% positive Matt’s ring was lying in the sand someplace on this beach. So, I was having a little chit-chat with the Big Man upstairs and I was a little cranky, to say the least. So out of nowhere, the idea of searching the area again, doing a cross grid popped into my head. I cut the search area down; concentrating on the area Matt gave me in the first place. On my third line, BOOM, I got a solid signal. I dug a scoop of sand, dumped it on the beach, and spread it out with my foot. I ran the coil over the area, found the signal and scooped it up. There it was, all covered in sand, but I had it. I looked at the hole and saw my grid line that ran right beside it, so I had walked right over the top of it and missed it, so I must have zigged instead of zagged. Matt told me the inscription on the inside of the ring, so I had to go back to the car and use the light so see it. It was a perfect match. I had asked Matt earlier if he wanted me to text him if I found it in the middle of the night, or hold on to it and contact him a little later in the morning. I knew his answer before I asked but I let him make the decision. At about 4:20 a.m., I sent him two pictures of his ring, one of them the inscription, with a text saying: “Good Morning Sunshine, I’m sitting in the parking lot, let me know you’re awake.” I got an immediate response “I’m up, be down in 5.” As soon as I handed Matt his cherished ring, all my self-pity disappeared and I remembered exactly why I do this. There’s no better feeling!

Matt and Mary, thank you so much for trusting me to find your lost treasure. Have a great rest of your vacation and a safe trip back home. This is another chapter you two can add to the long story this ring will carry.
