Ring lost at Coronado found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

I got a call yesterday evening from Lauren saying that her husband Craig lost his wedding ring in the sand in front of their bungalow at the Hotel Del Coronado. Just a simple thing as brush sand off his hands caused the ring to come off into the soft sand and disappear. He sifted the sand with his fingers for quite a while, but, came up empty. Being a Saturday night, I didn’t want to wait until the next day to search as that beach gets detected quite often and it might get found by someone who wouldn’t know who lost it, or, wouldn’t want to return it, so, I told them I would head over and search that night. We met up, Craig showed me the search area, and within a minute or so, I got the signal I was expecting. The whole family was happy Dad got his wedding ring back! A pleasure to meet you folks, and thank you for the reward.

Lost Engagement Ring found at East Beach Santa Barbara

  • from Ventura (California, United States)

I got a call from Ian on Tuesday morning asking if I could help he and his fiance Cielo locate her engagement ring that was lost Sunday evening. It was accidentally lost in the tide as Ian had been holding it for Cielo while she was swimming and it came off while he had handed her the towel. It immediately buried itself in the wet sand and as each wave moved over it got buried a little bit more. The conditions were great for a Tuesday afternoon search and I felt pretty confident that I could recover it unless someone else had beaten me to it.

I got there and met up with both Ian and Cielo and I started the search and began to grid out the area. I wasn’t having much luck going east so I went back to where I started and moved west and on my second pass I got a signal and two scoops later we had the ring back! It was an awesome recovery and it was so cool to be a part of it. If you have lost a piece of jewelry time is not on your side and the sooner you call or text me at 805-290-5009 the sooner it is we can plan it’s recovery.

Emerald Isle Fishing Trip Involves Lost Ring Almost Getting Away

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

David, Kayla and her mother were spending an evening on the beach fishing the shoreline.  Kayla had taken off her engagement ring and placed it in a small bowl.  Just after David caught a fish, Kayla headed down to the water to get a closer look.  Unfortunately, the bowl, holding Kayla’s ring spilled onto the beach just as darkness was setting in.  I happened to be in the area about an hour later and David approached me to ask for my help finding this wonderful ring.  After a few passes and as they were packing up to leave, I was able to pull her ring from the beach.  I was very happy to return this for them as Kayla’s mother told me when I began searching that David had just returned from military service in Afghanistan.    I thank him and all that protect us for their service to our country!

Rose Gold 14k Gold Band lost & Found in Eastham mass

Rick, Jim, & Myself we’re out searching for recent drops today in our local ponds. Rick’s wife Jayne called my phone and left an Urgent message for us to return a call that she had just received, saying that we were recommended, by a local Metal-Detecting shop on Cape Cod, to help find a Wedding Band that was lost about an hour earlier on a beach. I called back immediately and Jessica picked up the phone, she proceeded saying that they were all down on the beach earlier, and that a friend of hers named Louis, had dropped his wedding band in the dry sand, they were wondering if we could help find it. I said yes but no guarantees. They were not to familiar with the area, and wasn’t sure what parking lot they were in.  I told them to meet us there in an hour.  We all jumped in the truck and headed down 25 miles away an got there earlier than expected, we met Lewis and Anton after about a 15 wait. Glad we waited for them to show up, as we were walking down the path and got onto the beach, Louis had mentioned that he put a stick down into the sand, where he thought he had dropped it. I asked him to please stand exactly where he thought it fell and not to move, I then proceeded to turn on my machine and took less than five seconds to receive my first signal, that just happened to be his beautiful 14 karat Rose Gold Wedding Band.  We were all very happy to see it back on his finger that quickly.  That’s where it belongs. Louis actually said incredible, just incredible we were all looking for over an hour on our hands snd knees to no avail.   We were glad that Jessica called the Ring Finders.

Lost wallet in the water, Atlantic Ocean, Daytona Beach….Found and Returned to owner!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact:



While searching for a lost silver cross and chain for a young man from Wisconsin, I dug up someones wallet in the knee deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean. That’s not something we find very often and from the looks and condition of the wallet and the contents inside I could tell it had been there for a couple of months, at least. I never did find the silver cross but who knows it may show up yet! Plus that very same day I eyeballed a really nice lady’s diamond ring that is waiting to be reunited with its rightful owner. So after I got home and got myself and my gear all cleaned up I took out the wallet I had found and started going through the contents. First off it had a flat magnet and a flat metal plate sewn inside the wallet that helped keep it in the closed position. And it was those two pieces of metal that helped me find the wallet under all that sand. It contained three credit cards, one Florida Resident fishing license, a drivers license and 52 dollars in bills. Not a bad score for a day at the beach!

Later that evening I did a little investigation on line and found the owner of the wallets family and gave them a call. A few days later the wallet and all the contents were put in an envelope and mailed off to Jacksonville, Florida and here is the response that Coby sent me a week later.

“Hi Mike, I wanted to say thank you so much for sending my wallet, cards and cash back to me in one piece! Although the cards are no longer useful, it is great to have my ID and especially the cash again. My sister Rachel (with me in the picture) told me you washed, dried and ironed it! I appreciate what you do for people and as a Christian man myself, I thank God for people like you! You do the world a service unlike no other and people like you make the world go ’round’! Please let me know if you ever need anything from me. I am truly in your debt and thankful to you and the Lord for this reunion! Take good care of yourself and keep up the wonderful work! PS Here is a picture of myself and my sister Rachel with the items you sent to me. God Bless–Coby”

Lost Gold Ring Found On Surf City, NC Beach

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Bridget was walking with her friend and a dog along the Atlantic Ocean coastline on a Surf City Beach.  It may have been the dog on the leash but Bridget had felt her birthstone ring slide off of her finger into the high tide wave currents.  She was able to get a quick glimpse of the ring before a wave came in and moved items about.  Bridget called me the very next morning and I headed her way to meet her and her father.  She was very good at knowing the area the ring had come off and the 2nd target I dug was her beautiful gold ring laying under 4 inches of sand.  Bridgette had explained she received this ring on her 21st birthday and it had very special meaning.  I was very happy to see her reaction when she knew I had found it.

Lost Ring Cobourg Ontario…Found!

Received a text early this morning from Keelin. She and her friends went to a local beach in Cobourg Ontario for a late evening swim and camp fire by the shore of Lake Ontario. Fortunately for her, and the recovery of her ring, all the stars lined up as she specifically recalled feeling the ring slip off her finger and at what depth she was while in the water. Met up with Keelin and her dad first thing this morning, and ten minutes later found her ring within 20 feet from where she thought it was lost. Keelin’s fiancé currently lives in the UK and they haven’t seen each other since last January due to COVID. They are scheduled to get married this October, in the UK, and is extremely happy that she will be able to wear her lost and found engagement ring. Watch the video. Another happy ending!

Lost Ring On Topsail Island Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

John & Sophie arrived at their North Topsail, NC beach house one day prior for a family vacation with great views and weather.  John had taken his wedding band of many years off to swim in the ocean.  The beach chairs were moved a few times because of the incoming tide and were eventually folded up and returned to the house.  John called me later that afternoon the ask if I could be of assistance.  Upon arrival John showed me the boundaries for my search.  There were very little signs of metal in the sand and at one point, I wondered if I had the correct search settings.  After a crusty penny, my next signal was a strong soda tab signal.  This time it was just the opposite!  John’s white gold wedding band was peaking up from the sand after my first try to brush the sand away from the target.  If I remember correctly, I think John said “well how about that!”   John told the neighbors that he didn’t need to sleep outside tonight!

Sentimental Lost Rings Found Atlantic Beach, NC By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

Kelly started to send me vague questions about my service and what was required from her.  It was a very busy day for me and I also had plans to search for a lost ring the next morning.  Once she gave more details about where she had lost an heirloom gold diamond ring and also a second gold aquamarine ring from her father, I was started to worry as they were very close to a busy section of beach.  I had made plans to sacrifice some sleep to arrive at Atlantic Beach a few hours before heading to my morning appointment in New Bern, NC.  As I knew my search time was short, I “phoned a friend” to assist with the hunt.  Justin and I started at the area Kelly had marked very well with pictures, illustrations and landmarks.  Justin began hunting the upper section of the recently replenished beach that was full of small pieces of aluminum as I worked from the high tide line.  It only took about 30 minutes until Justin was able to winkle out Kelly’s two beautiful rings!  Kelly informed us that she worked in New Bern so we still had time to hand deliver her recently found rings before heading to my previous planned location.

West Harwich, Cape Cod, Massachusetts Lost Ring Found and Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

August 8, 202 It never hurts to reach out and ask.

And that is just what Andy did after searching with no results for his lost wedding band. I had been out looking for a ring that was lost over a year ago and saw another detectorist searching along the low water line. We never got close enough to talk and he left before I left the water. The kicker for me is that Andy had reached out to me because he saw a sign about TheRingFinders on the back of my car.

A text asking if I had found a ring was on my phone waiting for an answer. No, I had not. I replied and also sasked if I could help find the lost ring. Later that afternoon Leighton, another RingFinder and I returned to the beach searching the area we were told the ring had been lost. Three hours of detecting and no ring was found. The next morning I was up early and thought it would not hurt to cover the dry sand area we had not searched. I was out before the sun rose and found nothing in the sand. One more scan in the water would be relaxing before heading home. Not finding anything in the water, I was heading to my car and about a foot from the water line and some 60 feet from the area we had been searching I heard the last signal that I was going to dig before turning off my detector. YES, the sun’s sparkle reflected from a wedding band was a real surprise. I had found Andy’s ring.

A few texts later, I met up with Andy at lunch time to return his ring. He had a Thank You card filled with very heart warming words all ready to give me. His Thank You was a first for me in that I had never received a note in such a short time between the time I found a ring, told the owner, and returned it to the owner.
