Ring Lost in Tulsa found in bushes

  • from Broken Arrow (Oklahoma, United States)


I received a call from Kara around noon today…….  Didn’t answer the call at first because of scammers all the time….. The phone rang again so answered it and asked what do you need? Kara said she needed help finding her engagement ring from (1952) that was handed down thru her boyfriends family….. So the pressure was on everybody was watching….. I asked her what had happened, she said it was New Year’s Eve and there were some things that had happened, off came the ring and thrown…… I searched half the yard and went back over it twice…… I said to myself it has to be in the bushes……..  I came back around the bushes and it had dropped out of the bushes…….  I then asked her if she thought it would be anywhere else she turned away and (I pulled a Chris Turner) I held up her ring and when she turned around she instantly froze and said really!!!!!! A big hug followed and she said thank you so much…..thanks for calling so soon KARA……..  KARA DIDNT want her picture taken so I asked to take a picture of me holding her ring……

EZ Cruz Marina

John was enjoying an afternoon of boating with his father and rest of the family on Father’s Day. They stopped at EZ Cruz Marina to fuel up, and John jumped into the water. His beautiful ring decorated with diamonds and Claddagh symbols slipped off his finger. John called and we arranged to meet at the marina.

Search Area






Mrs. Ellis (my safety diver) and I arrived around 10am, we introduced ourselves to the EZ Cruz staff, and started to prepare. We evaluated the conditions. Water visibility was poor, and the water was about seven feet deep. When John arrived, he showed us exactly where and how he jumped in.


Ladder Entry

Circular Search Device


I decided to use my circular search pattern device I made just for these types of situations. Entering the water around noon, I worked through various trash targets including weights, glasses, and fishing rods. After about an hour I was able to find John’s beautiful ring!





For my detecting friends, my Equinox 800 with a Coiltek 10×5 had a VDI of 22-24 for ring of un-known gold content.

Rob Ellis: Metal Detector Expert… Call/text ASAP, (703)-598-1435

Don’t give up. Many of my clients have bought, borrowed, or rented a metal detector before calling me. Just because someone has a tool, it doesn’t mean they know how to use it. I use state of the art equipment, and I have thousands of hours of experience searching on land and underwater. If you have tried using a detector without success, please call to see if I can help.

Heirloom Wedding Ring lost while swimming in the ocean recovered.

  • from Rockport (Maine, United States)

The long day began with a 4AM wake up and two hour drive to catch the first ferry out to Little Cranberry Island, Maine. My objective to search for and recover this heirloom diamond wedding band which had originally belonged to the owner’s Great Grandfather. The ring was lost over a week earlier on Friday the 13th while swimming at Sand Beach, the day before his vacation ended, he returned home thinking the ring was gone forever. A friend recommended he look for a Detectorist online, where he found my page on The Ring Finders site and gave me a call. The search took about 7 hours during which the 10 foot tide rose and then partially receded, ending with a successful recovery. On a side note, since this beach frames a working harbor my rusty nail, pull tab, bottle cap and unidentifiable metal shard collection grew significantly during the hunt for this ring.  A portion of the generous reward received will be donated to the Mid-Coast Leos (sponsored by Camden Lions Club) to help with their community service projects, which I am blessed to part of as a Leos Advisor.
