Lisa called last night wondering if I would be able to find her daughter’s diamond stud earring. I inquired as to where and how it was lost, and of course how long ago. Apparently her daughter was playing volley ball in the back yard when she went up against the net. At that time her earring hooked in the net and pulled off of her ear. She saw it fly off and land in the grass, but found searching for it an effort in futility. The loss happened about 45 minutes before Lisa’s daughter found me on the Internet, and the call was made. We arranged to meet today at about 11:30 AM.

I arrived just a bit early, and was able to park and enjoy the coffee I bought at the fast food restaurant on the way. I called Lisa to let her know I was outside. She led me to the area of the loss. They had cordoned off the area her daughter saw the earring fly into with volley balls (nice touch). The thatch was good and thick, perfect for hiding jewelry. I then asked to see the twin to the lost one. When Lisa showed it to me, I got a bit concerned; it was so small my pin pointer could only barely pick it up if I touched it, and my detector could only pick it up at about 1 inch. I proceeded real low and slow checking every faint sound. I then got a nice faint repeatable  signal, and went in with the pin pointer and my fingers, gently moving the grass around when I saw the thin pin shaped shank of the earring. I grabbed it, held it up, and handed it to a very surprised Lisa. This was a very precious item for her daughter, and she was very happy to know she would be able give it back to her. A real nice beginning of the day.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Cemetery in Valencia, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call from Arvin last night asking if I would be able to help find a lost diamond stud earring in a cemetery. I told him I would help him only after we went to the main office, and received permission to do the search. I did let him know ahead of time, that diamond stud earrings are one of the hardest pieces of jewelry to find, because they are made with such a small amount of metal. We agreed to meet today at about 3:00 PM.

When we met, Arvin’s wife Larraine explained that it was their daughter Lauren who had lost the earring. Lauren’s grandmother had given her those earrings, so there was a very strong sentimental value attached to the missing jewelry. Larraine, Lauren and I went to the office where they explained what had happened, and I said that I would only be there for that particular search and then leave, so the manager gave us the go ahead for the search. When Arvin took us to the area, he and Lauren showed me the boundaries, and explained that Lauren had been holding her baby brother while the family were paying respects to Larraine’s grandparents. While Lauren had her brother, he reached up out of curiosity, grabbed her earring, and pulled it right out of her ear. She reached up, and all she had was the back stuck to her ear. They checked the brother’s hand, no earring. They checked the mat Lauren was sitting on, no earring. They then deducted that it had fallen into the thick grass. The family had searched for the earring for 2 days without success, so Lauren went to the internet, and found me on The Ring Finders site.

I began by testing my equipment on the remaining earring, and was able to get about 1 to 1 1/2 inches on the detector. I then checked my pin pointer, and it had to touch the earring in order to get a response, so I knew I had to pin point well with my detector. I was receiving many signals, many were too strong, but checked them all. I searched the original area I was shown, but did not find it. Then moved a few feet lower, and received a faint signal. I put the pin pointer in the thick grass, and got a response. I kept the pin pointer in the grass as I moved the grass around. I could hear the pin pointer, and was looking at the earring which I could barely see in the dirt below the grass, but there it was. I grabbed it by the shank, brought it up, and held it out for Lauren, she and her father were totally surprised. One of the hardest items to recover, found and returned. Needless to say, we all felt real good at that moment.

Lauren sent the attached testimonial:

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 I lost my diamond stud earring in the grass at Eternal Valley Cemetery. My little brother accidentally took it off my ear and it fell somewhere. We looked for two days but we couldn’t find it. On Monday, May 1, 2017 that night I searched up on google how to find an earring in the grass” and that’s where I found out about this website called, The Ring Finders. I read through the website and it said something about someone being able to find their diamond stud earring, in the grass with the help of whoever is in charge of this website. I looked for more information and then I read a name. Steve. And so I assumed that he was in charge of this website. And I was right. His number was there, so I tried calling him. We arranged a meeting for the next day, May 2, 2017 and that’s on a Wednesday. At 3pm. At first, I was hesitant. Although I’ve read his blogs about him being able to help some people, I was still a little worried. I thought, would he really be able to help us look for my earring? Because I know we’ve looked for two days and we didn’t find it. But I took my chances. I knew that diamond earring had a sentimental value to me, so I just hoped he would be able to help us. And he did! It took him an hour and I almost thought he would never find it, but he did. He found it. We were all so happy. My parents, and especially me. It was really unexpected, but with the help of Steve and his equipments, my earring was found. I can attest to this event, and I am a witness that The Ring Finders is legit.

Sincerely, 

Lauren

I received an email from Carli last night about 10:15 asking if I could help her find her lost diamond stud earring she lost at the beach in the sand. I have been on enough searches for stud earrings to know that they are one of the most difficult items to find, in fact most detectors won’t even pick them up, and I made sure I let her know this upfront. I asked her about the spot of the loss, and she said it was lost on the towel line, which the county mechanically cleans on this beach daily, so I knew that this search was important. Carli was thinking early the next morning, when I told her I would meet her at the beach in 30 minutes, because of the type of search and the fact that there were too many factors that could make finding such a small item harder by the hour. We agreed to meet last night, and I was on my way.

I arrived just after 11:00, and she took me out to the spot. I had told Carli that the closer she could get me to the area would increase the likelihood of a recovery. She told me the earring came off her right ear when she was removing a piece of clothing so she had focused her search in that area earlier in the day. I told her though that I was going to search a wider area, because I have experienced that jewelry does weird things when it comes off. I found a few items such as foil, and a bobby pin, that Carli identified as hers. About 11:30, I was in an area that was to the left of her original position by about 10 feet when I received a good signal. I dug with my plastic trowel, and delicately shook the sand from the curved surface, when something sparkled. Carli’s husband said in the darkness with the flashlights that the sparkle caught his eye as well even as he was standing a few feet away. I reached down and then held up the earring Carli had lost. She expressed a considerable amount of excitement, saying “it was like a needle in a haystack”, which it truly was. The earrings I later found out had been given to her for a birthday present, what more can be said; the story continues. The attached picture says it all. Glad to be a maker of smiles.

Wedding Ring Lost in Santa Monica Mountains…Found and Happily Returned.

A week ago today Jesse emailed me regarding his ring that was lost behind his house in the Santa Monica Mountains. I got back with him to arrange a time to look for it, and we were able to meet the next day. The ring was his grandfather’s wedding ring that he wore during the invasion of Normandy right after getting married. He also visited over 140 countries, so this ring had a wealth of meaningful history for Jesse and his family, and to lose it, was losing a serious piece of his family’s history.

When I got to the area Jesse showed me where the loss occurred. It was covered with a thick layer of leaves, fallen trees, and a shallow creek. I started the search in the general vicinity he thought the ring might be and continued to work my way out. I ended up searching the edges of the creek, up and down the banks, and then into the water with no luck. I moved the search area out further and further, going into the area of fallen trees, when I had a good tone in the headphones, looked down and moved the debris around a bit, and saw the ring. A while later Jesse came over to me with a kind of sullen look on his face, and saying, “No luck huh?, when I lifted my hand to show him his ring. Needless to say he was very excited, as was I. It was a great day.

I received a call from David Thursday night about his wedding band he thought was lost in the backyard while working in the garden. I talked to him about arrangements to meet at his house, and because I knew that there wasn’t much of a chance it going anywhere, I figured the ring would be safe. Well David informed me that he had a lot of squirrels in the area, and he worried one of them might run off with it. I had not thought of that possibility, so we arranged to meet at our earliest convenience which was today.

When I got to the house David showed me to the yard where the garden was. It was a good sized plot that was covered with a thick layer of fresh mulch. David explained how he had been pulling the crabgrass from the garden, and digging deep to get the roots out. It also had steel fence posts hammered into the ground spaced out at equal intervals throughout the garden which I explained would make my search very difficult, so we decided to remove them. I started my search and was getting a lot of iron readings on my detector, and remembered from a previous search, that some mulch companies put rusted nails and screws in their mulch to add iron to the soil. I received a good signal, and dug a very small piece of non ferrous metal. I continued on in another plot, and after setting one grid line, I received a very good signal, and got my plastic trowel (so as not to hurt the ring) and my pin pointer to focus the search. I found the ring about 3 to 4 inches underneath the mulch. David and his wife were very happy to have his token of their promise to each other back on his hand. I in turn was happy to be able to make someone’s day today.

I received a call from Adam yesterday about a ring that was lost at his house about a month and a half ago during a corporate party. Apparently one of the guests was taking a swing at a pinata when his ring flew off of his extended forefinger. I knew that the ring, if lost in the yard wasn’t going anywhere, so we planned on me coming to search the area today. It was then he sent me a text picture of the area they thought the loss occurred, which gave me pause. The house was situated on the hillside with a ravine that went down probably four hundred feet of steepness. I knew then it would be a tough search.

When I got to the house, which was pretty awesome, it was a big castle with a swimming pool moat and all, I met with Adam. He wasn’t able to describe the ring, but told me it was a big one. He explained what had happened, and where they believed the ring went flying. Hoping though that it had landed in the yard and not on the hillside, I decided to search the area in the yard first, to no avail. I then went out to the hillside and began working in the bushes nearest the fence, and worked my way down. The footing was very tenuous, so the going was slow. I was surprised at how much metal was in that hillside, and much of it sounding like what I was looking for, so digging all of that slowed me considerably more, and my legs were aching, but I kept going, sometimes with my feet sliding out from under me. I was going down to a shelf about a third the way down and finish there, because the hill steepened below the shelf and looked unsafe for me to go further. I finally got down to the shelf, and began my slow assent back to the house further to the side I had not detected on the way down, detecting as I went. I got about halfway back when I saw this beautiful glimmer of gold in the mid day sun. The ring was sitting right on top of the ground waiting to be picked up. I reached down and picked up this awesome men’s opal ring, and knew I had found what I was looking for. Adam was very happy that he would be able to get the ring back to its owner, as was I., Had a great day, a wonderful search and recovery, and there will be smiles that I won’t see, but know they will be great.

Heart Pendant and Necklace Lost in San Pedro, CA… Found.

Renee called me today to ask if I would be able to help her find a necklace and pendant with small diamond that she lost in the ivy where she had been walking. I told her that I was available, but she had to wait until she was done at work, which wasn’t going to be long. We arranged to meet at a pizza restaurant near the location, and then I would follow her over to the search area. She had remembered the pendant to be about the size of a nickle, which made me feel good about the search, because I knew the chain would be a bear to find, if my detector would hear it at all, but a nickle sized pendant should not be too bad a search.

When we got to the location, she then told me it had missing for two weeks, and then showed me the area (which is behind her in the photo above).  When I walked over to the ivy, I could see that it had been recently trimmed, within a day or two, so I was feeling a bit like it might be gone, but I wanted to do a thorough search, so I got right to work. I was finding everything, bottle caps, screw caps, cans, bottles, foil, ketchup pouches, etc. I found everything but what I was looking for. I had my best detector, but when I had gone over the whole area, I decided to switch to another detector, knowing its ability to find small gold (hoping it would find the chain). I then began to find more stuff in the area I had already cleaned out, getting more good signals, and more foil. My pin pointer was getting a workout as well. I then got another good signal in the headphones, put in the pin pointer and got nothing. I passed the coil over again, got the good signal, put the pin pointer in again; nothing. I then laid the detector down, and reached into the debris, and handful by handful passed it in front of my coil. When I heard the good sound in my headphones again I started going through what was in my hand when I saw a very fine chain. As I lifted it up, I found the very small heart shaped pendant, which I have next to dime in the picture to show scale, it was smaller than a nickle, and fine in thickness. I lifted it up, and began walking across the street to show Renee who was sitting in her car, because it was pretty cold. She jumped out to see, and a great big smile appeared. I am glad to have made her day today, and happy to have had the right tool for the job.

Hunter called me on New Years Eve about a lost ring that was lost in a backyard, so after we discussed the situation, we decided to postpone the search until 2 days later on Saturday morning.

When I got to the house Hunter told me how his boss was setting her garden’s planters with new potting soil, and realized the ring was missing. About 2 to 3 weeks had transpired since the loss until they found me. The nice thing about that as opposed to a beach search, is that the ring was going no where, so I knew if it was there it would be found. Hunter showed me the areas where the ring was possibly lost, one was a box about 4 feet square about 2 1/2 feet deep and surround by re-bar. That was a bit discouraging because I knew my detector would be picking up the re-bar as I got near the edges. The other planters were much quieter, and I received no signal from them, so I focused on the square box. After I removed some spikes that were holding down the sprinkler system, I was still getting readings all over the planter, even in the middle which I didn’t understand. I realized I would not be able to use my detector at all in this planter, so I switched to my pin pointer to continue my search. I began to see why I was getting so many hits in this planter, as it was littered with bits of rusting metal (screws and scrap). Fortunately the potting soil was loose which allowed me to probe deep in the planter with the pin pointer. After about 10 minutes I got a good solid hit, and began to dig. Out came this pretty little ring with a great looking turquoise stone in it.

Well I called Hunter, and showed him my find. He was pretty excited about the recovery, unfortunately his boss wasn’t there to see the ring at that moment, but I am sure she had a nice smile, because it was given to her by a friend. More happy smiles for a new year’s beginning.

I received a call today from Demi regarding a Diamond stud earring lost in the grass at her house. I knew this would be a challenge because there is so little metal, in a very limited configuration, in a stud earring of any kind, especially one with a jewel that spreads out the metal into little tabs, which makes it very difficult to find. I told her I would be there, and felt up to the challenge.

When I got to their house her husband Richard showed me to the area, and explained what had happened, which I found a bit amusing. They have some “barnyard animals”, and Demi had been on the lawn with some of their goats, one of which was nuzzling the side of her head. She thought something had come off of the goat on to her blouse which caused her to brush it off. It wasn’t until they were on their way to put the goats away when she noticed the earring missing.

Well I got to work searching very slow and cautiously, and in the process found the back to the earring. It was real hot out there, and Richard was great to keep me hydrated with plenty of water. After about an hour and a half he invited me over to the porch to have a lunch with him that included more water, and some very fresh watermelon. After the lunch I went back to work refreshed, and searched the other areas he showed me with no success. I decided to go back to the area where the back was found and cross grid. After about 15 to 20 minutes, I found the earring. I walked over to where Demi was talking to her friend, held it up, and asked, “did it look like this?” When she saw it, the emotion on her face was all I needed to see, it was pure joy, and relief. Richard explained that he had given these earrings to Demi for their anniversary, so I realized why there was so much emotion, they were truly a precious item. Patience and persistence paid off in this search, and it helped a lot that Demi and Richard put me in the right area, otherwise the earring may have been lost for good. What wonderful smiles, what a happy couple, what a great day! Referred to me by Stan Ross fellow Ring Finder.

Lost Diamond Ring in yard, Port Orange, Florida….Found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Thousands of people across this great land drop things every day in their yards!   Some of those things are found and many are never recovered.  People often move to another house, sometimes across town and other times to another state.  And yet those lost items remain hidden in the ground waiting for someone else to find them.

Nancy had lost a very special ring in her front yard months earlier and now was in the process of moving out.  The very thought of never seeing her precious family heirloom again drove her to search for someone who could help her find this unique platinum and diamond ring that was handed down from her great grand mother.

As I listened to Nancy’s story I figured the ring should be fairly easy to find, so we set up a time to meet and do a thorough search.  Nancy showed me the area of the yard where the ring was lost and as soon as I started searching my detector began giving off all sorts of noise.  I tried two other search modes and still there was lots of static and interferrence of some kind.  I finally switched to the Prospecting mode and in 5 minutes I got a sweet low signal and there 3 inches under the grass was Nancy’s beautiful ring!

Do you know where you have lost something a long time ago or maybe even recently?   I am here to help!

E-mail me or give me a call!
