“I lost my wedding ring!” Gold and diamond ring found and returned to happy couple in Erie Colorado

  • from Longmont (Colorado, United States)

Is there anything worse than having car trouble on the side of the road? Unfortunately, Daniel and Lidia found out that yes, there can be something worse.  About five days ago Daniel had some car trouble on the side of a lonely road in Erie, Colorado and brought his wife out to assist him in getting his vehicle back on the road.  While Daniel was working under the hood, Lidia was standing on the soft shoulder between the road and a local farm field and as the time lingered on, she felt in horror as her beloved wedding ring slipped off of her finger and fell to the ground.  She and Daniel looked and looked and even dug into the ground as they felt it had slipped into a crack of the dry, parched earth but without any success in retrieving it.  They stuck a screwdriver into the ground where they felt it had fallen to mark the location and made a couple more trips out there to try and find it with no luck…

Lidia searched the internet and found her way to TheRingFinders website and after a quick search in Colorado was able to locate me as a Ring Finder in her area.  She contacted me via text and we made plans to meet out at the site where the ring was lost.  I was very optimistic that we would find the wedding ring because they had done such a good job noting the area and pinpointing the exact spot the ring was dropped.  Daniel and Lidia met me at a parking lot across the road and we talked about the story again of how they lost the wedding ring.  I could tell that they were very anxious to see if we could find this symbol of their love and marriage.  We drove over to the site and parked on the side of the road ahead of the place where they thought they had lost it.  I jumped out with my Teknetics T2 metal detector and Garrett Carrot pinpointer and started to grid off the area.  I noticed there was tons of trash in the area and being right next to the road, it was expected.  I decided to pick out the strong shallow targets first then if I hadn’t found it, I would transition to deeper targets.  Daniel and Lidia thought that it had possibly fell into a crack in the dirt and fell deeper as they tried to dig for it.  I was there for about 15 minutes and there were no strong signals in the ‘dig’ area where they had searched themselves but there was one scratchy signal that showed to be about 3-4 inches down.  I decided to dig that target.  With Daniel looking over my shoulder and after removing about 3 inches of dirt, he yelled, “there it is” and pointed to the shiny color streaming out of the brown dirt.

I had found the wedding ring!  I removed it from the dirt and showed it to Lidia who was waiting in their truck.  The smiles were wide on all our faces as she approached us exclaiming she couldn’t believe we had found it.  It is always an amazing feeling when you can return a lost item to its owner after they had given up hope that they would ever see it again.  It was my honor to help them out and I hope to be able to put smiles on many more faces to come.

Platinum Anniversary Ring Found And Returned Myrtle Beach SC

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Saturday night was Deardra’s last night in town as she was winding down her vacation time in Myrtle Beach. Walking on the beach that evening she lost her 1 year anniversary ring. It was not a way to end her enjoyable time at the beach. She fretted about her loss as she returned home to North Carolina. Deardra found The Ring Finders online and reached out to me Sunday night. Explaining to me the loss of her special treasure, she told me she dropped it somewhere near the stairs of her resort. She lost it in the dry sand so tides were not involved. At one point in our conversation she mentioned reaching into her back pocket for a phone, to answer a call. She told me she had walked up to place a plastic bottle in the recycle bin. She felt certain that is where she dropped her ring.

I arrived to the beach at sunrise. I had an hour and a half window before a business meeting I had in the neighborhood. Cross gridding a 30 yard square in front of the access stairs, I had no luck. I expanded the grid twice more. While searching the area I noticed a trash can next to the stairs, but no recycle can. Thinking about her telling me about placing her bottle in the can, I began to wonder. I started looking for the recycle bin and noticed that the next resort to the south had one. With 20 minutes left in my time window I walked 200 yards to the next hotel beach access, to where the container sat. I had 15 minutes to close the deal, or I would have to return another time. About 30 feet from the recycle can I got I nice signal on my CTX 30-30. In my sand scoop the gleaming treasure stared up at me. I sent a picture of the ring to Deardra’s phone and hurried to my meeting. She texted me back in the middle of the meeting, that indeed it was her precious prized possession. The mail man returned her ring to her three days later.

Deardra, thank you for the generous donation.

 

Business Trip to Hawaii Before Christmas, LOST WEDDING RING, SAVED by the TONE! GOTT’UM

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

 

On November 28th 2017 Steve just flew into Hawaii on a business trip. While here on island he decided to head to the beach and take a swim. He noticed a few kids playing football in the water and decided to join them. After some time playing he looked down and realized, NO WEDDING RING. It fell off and he started to look everywhere. The kids that were playing also stopped and put on their swimming goggles to help find his platinum wedding ring. After hours of looking they came up short. Steve was contemplating as to how he would  tell his wife that while on a business trip in Hawaii “I lost my wedding ring”!  Well, thanks to a friend of mine on the beach who noticed the commotion, he went over to Steve and asked if everything is ok.  Steve said “NO, I LOST MY WEDDING RING AND DON’T KNOW WHERE IT IS IN THE WATER”. That’s when I got the phone call. I was able to confirm with Steve that I would help him find his wedding ring and would be there in 30 minutes. I packed up the gear and my family as we were on our way to pick up our Christmas tree that evening. I arrived to the beach and noticed Steve walking waist deep in the ocean and still frantically looking. As I got closer, he looked up to me and yelled “KAI”? I responded ” I’m Ready” and started to gear up as my wife and son played on the beach. It was later in the evening and the sun was setting. After 40 minutes I finally GOT THAT TONE! I looked up to Steve who’s eye was full of depression and a lost of hope and he says “Whats this in the scoop?” At that time I heard a loud “HE FOUND IT”! I got the biggest hugs of ALOHA. In the scoop was Steve’s Platinum wedding ring. My Family and I were excited to see his joy and gratitude all over his face. Steve was very grateful that he thanked me so many times and I had to return with IT’S MY PLEASURE… Thank you Steve for believing in me and we both will have a very Merry Christmas.

 

Lost ring in lake Pawtuckaway NH found

  • from Boston (Massachusetts, United States)

Hey guys and gals!

Monday, the 10th of October, I got a text message from a gentlemen named Vic asking me if I could help him find his custom made 22K wedding ring. Vic, his wife, and close friends, had been enjoying Columbus day at one of the largest State Parks in Southeastern New Hampshire, when he encountered what would perfectly describe the ideal situation for loosing a ring, it was dusk, he was in the frigid waters of Lake Pawtuckaway, and lastly he was playing catch with a Frisbee.

Straight out about 20 yards from the rocks in the first photo was where the ring ended up being found. Vic was happily reunited with his beautiful ring and he learned a good lesson, but I will have to admit I learned a lesson too, never give up and always remember the basics. I looked for Vic’s ring for two hours before deciding I needed a break. I was cold and kind of light headed from splashing around in the cold lake water, so Vic and I sat down to warm up in the sun and he set out telling me how it’s a custom where he’s from for each partner to have the others ring custom made and how they do not see the ring until it goes on their finger at the wedding. Turns out the designs each one chose was almost identical, which in their opinion was pretty awesome.

I listened to Vic’s story again on how he lost his ring and being it rang so true to how a ring is lost I had to determine one of two things was going on, concerning me not finding the ring yet, my detector was not working correctly or the ring fell on or near a piece of iron and my machine was discriminating out the iron and the ring at the same time. I proceeded to start my hunt over in all metal mode and dig everything that beeped and a long story short I got a hit on a couple of objects side by side, scooped them up and had a bobby pin, a small nail, and a 22K gold ring. Turned out to be a gorgeous day!

Newlyweds’ Lost Wedding Ring FOUND at the Hilton Hotel, Big Island, Hawaii

brent and van - ring finding

SEE THE FIND-Movie!!! Finding Vans Ring

Van and Ellie called us with bad news and good news.

The bad news was that Van had been swimming in the Hilton hotel’s lagoon in Waikoloa and lost his new wedding ring! He’d put sunscreen on and within minutes of getting in, felt it fly off as he moved his hand through the water. The good news was that since he had felt it slip off – he’d marked the precise location, time and depth before calling us.

There were no waves in the lagoon, the deepest part of the lagoon was shoulder depth and within a controlled space (as opposed to a public one – so someone who may have seen them searching couldn’t return and keep Van’s ring if found).

We met them at the entrance to the main lobby where the hotel had also arranged security to log us in and bring us to the lagoon. We were relieved for the buggy ride as the hotel grounds are huge and we’d brought two underwater detectors as well as light scuba gear in case…

Van climbed over the rocks and went into the water with me while Sylvie gave me (and Van’s wife Ellie) moral support from the nearby shore. Sylvie didn’t get in as I thought it would be a quick find – since everything was going in our favor – it was almost an “ideal” location.

One and a half hours later, I was starting to worry… We’d gone over-and-over the square he’d marked the moment his ring was lost. I continued to expand the search at every pass. Sylvie called over, “Should I gear up and bring in the Sea Hunter?” We use the pulse induction Garrett Sea Hunter MkII with a big coil in clean sandy-bottomed areas.

“I think so…” I replied not sure how I – or my Minelab Excalibur could have missed the ring. I was getting cold  and frustrated that something seemingly so right had gone so wrong.

Just as Sylvie started walking over to get the other detector I suddenly heard the loud clear tone that tungsten makes in my headphones. “Cancel that!” I yelled over to Sylvie. Van looked up. He was holding the Go Pro and started filming. I stuck my head in the water, scooped and looked into the basket. “Does it look something like this?!” I asked, picking the ring out of the mud and stones.

Van and Ellie were so relieved to have their precious ring found!

And so were we – Phew!

Lost Ring in Boston found. “In the next yard”

  • from Boston (Massachusetts, United States)

A grand wedding planned and the congratulations had everyone in great spirits. Then Fido put a damper on things and it wasn’t by eating the wedding ring or biting the groom. It imageseems Fido wanted to join in on all the fun. When the stafford shire terrier was brought out to join the party she got so excited she made a be line for her mom and Bailey was wearing her very nice clothes. In order to stop the pooch from knocking her down Bailey threw up here hands to brace for impact. Well the rest is history, but I’ll let you hear the rest from Baileys point of view. Thanks for stopping by!

Bailey’s Testimonial:

 

 

I am so grateful to Guy and The Ring Finders! They made a pretty crappy week end on a great note.

I lost my engagement ring playing in the yard with my dog and after panicking, my fiancée, myself, some of the wedding party and three neighbors searched in our yard. After seven hours and a metal detector rental and not enough luck, we turned to the internet and found Guy here on the Ring finders.

Skeptical at first, because I didn’t think there was even anyone in the world who would do this, let alone on a reward basis and not for a really high fee, I gave Guy a call and after some brief chatting and scheduling, I got to meet him and he got to work. After his first initial run through of the yard he assured me it was close that he could find my ring. A day or so later he came back when I was available for more time he gave the yard an extremely through sweep, and then the neighboring yard a through sweep as well.

When the ring didn’t turn up in my yard, my first though was “we’ll never find is” and Guy assured me again we would and I wouldn’t be writing this if he hadn’t, and I am so grateful that he did. My ring had made it over the fence into the yard next door, and was safely recovered from under a pile of leaves.

Guy is a funny, easy going person and his genuinely nice persona kept the whole experience enjoyable despite the circumstances. That fact that he does this just for the love of helping people, and that he helped me, makes me glad such a site like this, and people like him that do this, exist.

Thank you Guy for doing this, and thank you theringfinders for making a place that people like me can find people like Guy.
