Lost Ruby and Diamond Sentimental Engagement ring found at Loyola Beach in chicago

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-206-8476

Received a call from a young man who was helping an elderly women. The gentleman was sitting on a bench at Loyola Beach with his girlfriend when he observed an elderly women frantically searching on her hands and knees for her sentimental engagement ring in the sand. It was yellow gold with two Diamonds and a Ruby. He helped her by marking the spot with some small stones and a buried t shirt. He went online with his phone and found the Ringfinders website and my name. The woman does not own a cell phone. He called me and explained the situation. This call was received in the late afternoon today. I knew that if I didn’t come out right away, the stones and marker would probably be gone in the morning because of the raking machines they use every morning on the beaches. He gave me the woman’s landline number and we met at the beach. The marker was still intact. In less than 30 seconds, with just 1 swipe of the coil, I found the ring less than a foot from the marker. It came up as 12/05 on my CTX 3030. The woman was in shock that I was able to find it. She had already given up any hope of finding it. People nearby saw that I had found it and came running over in disbelief. Another GREAT DAY to be a RINGFINDER!! I couldn’t have been happier for her so I had my picture taken with her.

Received a call to look for a group of keys that he thought he had lost shoveling the driveway. One of the keys was to his car, which he could not move. Also a series of house keys and others. I started to search with  CTX 3030. Found a lot of metal interference. Took rake and searched my signals along with my pinpointer. Nothing! There was a large pile of snow near some steps with a metal railing. Decided to use the pinpointer and buried it into the pile. BINGO!!

Contact: 1-773-206-8476

While in transit to a ring hunt in Elgin, Illinois, I received a call from a woman asking me to come to Dekalb, Illinois after my search in Elgin, Illinois. Apparently her husband lost it while using the snowblower around Christmas. The snow had started to melt and they were still unable to locate the White Gold wedding band. I arrived at her home and went inside to have her fill out my search contract. She put on her coat so she could shoe me the area it was lost in. I stepped outside and looked down and picked up the ring. It was in plain view since the snow had just melted. No detector required. Probably my fastest hunt EVER!!

Gentleman and his family came to Glen Ellyn Lake Park to watch the cardboard post races on July 3rd.. While watching they moved to another location. The ring was in the cup holder of a chair. They were uncertain as to which location it came out or if it came out while going to the location.

I hunted the first location and thats where I found it. It came in at 11/22 on the CTX 3030. About a twenty minute hunt. Even the Park manager was surprised I found it. Needless to say I gave the manager my card for future loses.

Lost 18 K Diamond Ring found and returned in Dolton, Illinois

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-206-8476

In Chicago I was contacted to search for a ring that was lost when she was throwing stones at amorous opossums in the back yard. It was a collapsible 18K ring with diamonds. Less than 30 minutes and I found it. I was using my XP Deus  and was surprised to see that it rang up at 78 using 18 kHz. It seems that 18K can come in very high.
