Lost Gold Ring in Salt Lake City, Utah- Found

This was actually my first call of 2023 after a large snow storm rolled through Utah. Jefferey and his girlfriend were having a snowball fight when he noticed his large gold ring came off his finger. I met them at the scene of the battle and quickly searched the area which was littered with trash. After about two hours, I was unsuccessful of locating the ring. Since it was right next to a busy road and plenty of interference, I knew I need to come back with a smaller coil.

The next week, the snow had melted and I was in route back to my house with about 15 minutes to kill so I stopped by the area. I put on my smaller coil and right next to the powerline cable was the ring. There was a few pieces of trash around it but it was literally about a foot from the sidewalk and anyone could have came by and grabbed it. The reason why I haven’t posted this recovery earlier is that I am still trying to get in touch with Jefferey as his phone number has been disconnected. I am hoping he will reach out to me following the post.

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Sandy, Utah- Found

Gabriel reached out me after a two day search for his lost white gold wedding band. He was in the backyard enjoying the snow with his family when someone threw a snowball in his direction. He caught the snowball and threw it back and then went to flick the snow from his hands. He realized in that moment that his ring was missing. He spent the next two days looking for it and even used a metal detector to search. Gabriel was schedule to fly back to Florida the next day when he reached out to me. I quickly jumped in my car and headed over to his location.

After understanding where he was located and what movement he made, I started to search for the ring. After several minutes with very few signals in the yard, I got a hit on my metal detector that I was confident was his ring. After pinpointing it, I could see the side of the ring in the snow and decided to play it off in hopes of surprising him. I asked Gabriel to replay what had happened and then surprised him with his ring! He was so excited to see it! Thanks Gabriel for reaching out and so happy the ring is back where it belongs!

Lost 14k White Gold Wedding Ring with Dinosaur Bone Inlay in Salt Lake City- Found

Tom is an outdoor photographer by trade and he was working up on the side of a mountain that over looks Salt Lake City. He had taken his ring off and put it in his pocket when he first stepped outside and then proceeded to hike up to the trail where he was taking photos. At some point, he reached into his pocket to pull out some items and that’s when he realized his 14k white gold wedding band with dinosaur bone inlay was missing!

I met Tom and his wife Lexi the next night to help relocate the ring. It was very cold up there on the side of the mountain and it was pitch dark. We made our way up to the furthest point on the trail where Tom had realized his ring was missing. I started to detect a long both sides of the trail as we headed down the mountain. It didn’t take long to get a signal in the snow and sure enough it was his ring! So glad we decided to work our way back from the furthest point cause it was basically at the end of his path. Tom and Lexi were so excited to see the ring! They are making plans to move cross country in the next few months so getting this ring back was a big relief! On a personal note, I think Tom’s ring is the most unique ring I have ever found with a metal detector! Overall great experience and wish Tom and Lexi the best on their next adventure!

Lost 14k Gold Wedding Band in Sandy, Utah- Found

Last week it snowed for a good 36 hours straight. I received a text message about a lost 14k gold wedding band lost in Sandy, Utah and made plans to go out looking for it that night. I met Logan at his house where he lost his ring. Earlier that day he was leaving for work and in the process decided to scrape off the snow from his wife’s car. In a hurry, he used his left hand to wipe the back window of the car and immediately realized his ring had come off. he spent 20-30 minutes looking in the snow but was unsuccessful locating the ring. I arrived later that night and after several targets, was able to locate the ring which had traveled through a chain link fence and ended up in the road. Fortunately, the snow plows had not come down the street yet which could have sent the ring flying! Check out the full length recovery video on YouTube- Lost Jewelry Recovery Utah

Lost Engagement Ring Near Pleasant Grove, Utah- Found

Over the last 10 days, I have had 4 ring recovery calls due to the recent snow storms hitting Utah. Timmy reached out to me after a sledding adventure with his fiancé near Pleasant Grove, Utah. When they got back to the car, she put her hands up to the vent and noticed her engagement ring was missing. The ring was white gold with two stones (Moissanite & Topaz). After talking with Timmy that night, they decided to go buy a metal detector from a local store and search for it themselves. Unfortunately, the metal detector was unable to locate the ring so we made plans to meet and search for the ring. I could still see their sled marks in the snow so I decided to start at one end of the hill and work my way to the right. I had barely just turned on my detector and started to make my first swing when I got a clear signal. Sure enough, it was the ring. It could be my fastest recovery to date. So happy I was able to get that ring back to Timmy and Lindsey! They are set to get married on April 6th and I wish them all the best!

December 2021 Kathy contacted me on New Years Eve explaining that she and her friend, Nancy, had been out in their neighborhood park and lost a very important ring. The two girls had been showing off a hand full of rings to the camera with a beautiful snow white back drop when they noticed one very important ring was now missing. It just happened to be Kathy’s mother’s gold wedding ring!

They had lost the ring earlier in the day. The good news I had was that I live just up the hill from them and I could swing by on my way home that evening to perform the search. When I arrived the temperatures had dropped quite a bit making for quite the challenge. The standard GoPro batteries don’t like sub freezing temperatures and the fingers as get a little slow as well but I endured the temporary bit of discomfort and got the search accomplished.

Lost Ring in Snow Simsbury, CT… Found!

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

Serhii was taking down Christmas lights and moving patio furniture on his second-story balcony. With a strand of lights in one hand and a cold railing in the other, he heard a clink. He thought nothing of the noise until five minutes later when he realized his white gold wedding band was missing from his finger. The clink he heard was the ring falling from the second story down to the ground level and bouncing off of a bank of gas meters. He walked down to check the ground and snow below. Wading in over a foot of snow, he quickly realized the ring was lost. Serhii decided to find help online. He came across my website and submitted a search form. The appointment was booked, and Serhii was hopeful.

I arrived and made an initial pass around the fence, bushes, and gas meters just below Serhii’s balcony. I was worried the snow was too deep for my machine to pick up the thin gold band. I had to keep my metal detector power low because of the metal gas meters, pipes, and building steel. The low power setting allowed me to get close to larger metal objects while searching for the lost ring, but my detection depth into the snow was limited at the same time. Coming up empty-handed on my first pass, I began scooping snow from between the gas meters to find out if the band landed there. I scanned each plastic scoopful of snow with my metal detector to make sure the ring wasn’t accidentally picked up. Next, I shoveled the top layer of snow from the grass line. With most of the snow relocated, I heard my first signal loud and clear. I grabbed a handful of snow and waved it over the top of my coil. The sound was even more audible, so I knew the object was in my hand. Slowly opening my fingers, I saw a shiny circular item covered in snow. Serhii’s ring! After bouncing off the utility pipes, it only landed about two feet away in the middle of the service walkway. I must have missed it the first time I scanned because of the snow depth. It was also possible Serhii or I could have stepped on the ring, pressing it down even further into the snow. I called Serhii down began to explain the work completed so far. In the middle of our discussion, I flashed the ring at him! Surprised, he said, “whoa, that’s mine!” We chatted for a few minutes about how fingers shrink in cold weather. Serhii admitted it was a good idea to resize the band before wearing it outdoors again. He was thankful to have his ring back, and I was happy to help.























How to Find a Lost Ring in Snow

Lost ring in the snow? It happens all the time – brushing and scraping ice, throwing snowballs, sleigh riding, taking off gloves. Suddenly your ring goes flying. Don’t waste your time renting a metal detector. Stop and mark the area where you believe the ring is lost. If plowing or shoveling occurs, block off the site to preserve the ring’s location.  My jewelry finding service covers Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and other surrounding states.

If you have a lost ring or something of value, contact Keith Wille now.

Lost Gold Engagement Ring, Found in Snow in Bluemont, Virginia

  • from Leesburg (Virginia, United States)

Call MyGoldFinder for lost items 571.258.7217.

I received a call from Katlyn on Monday evening stating she had lost her engagement ring while out building snowmen and sledding in her back yard. Her husband, Tony, was going to use a borrowed detector and some help from a friend to see if they could recover the ring that night and if  he didn’t have any luck would ask me come out the next day. Unfortunately, they did not have any luck finding Katlyn’s ring so we arranged for me to come out the next day.

Upon arriving at Katlyn and Tony’s home I noticed the large area to the left of the property where I presumed the ring had been lost, it was quite large, but I wasn’t daunted by the challenge for this recovery. Tony gave me a quick rundown of the activities and shortly I went to work. I setup a flag grid pattern across an approximate 50 yard by 50 yard area then started to conduct a slow search within each grind pattern. I extended my searches slightly on each grid section just to get some additional ground covered, but after almost two hours no luck in finding the ring; lots of junk metal and shell casings. So at this point I initiated a search beyond the first major grid section to see if the ring had possibly been thrown in another area. After about another 15 minutes I picked up a strong hit at the top of the grid and after moving a little snow there shining just under the surface in the snow was Katlyn’s beautiful engagement ring.

As I turned towards the house Katlyn was at the back door watching and I held the ring up high as my sign it was found. She immediately opened the door and with excitement in her voice yelled across the field, “You found it!??” Katlyn was just overwhelmed with emotion that she was reunited with her recently received engagement ring (Tony gave it to her in July of this year) and with tears of joy and a beautiful smile she gave me the biggest hug of gratitude.

It’s always these special moments that make our work so worthwhile!  Tony and Katlyn are a wonderful young couple and I’m just honored they called me and I was able to ensure their Holiday season was one to remember.
