Diamond and Gold Ring Returned TRF Celina, Ohio

from Celina (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-419-305-9549

This time of year in Ohio as the seasons change and the leaves start to turn, people are doing last minute tree trimming, yard work and clearing of brush. Sometimes with the cooler temperatures the rings fit a little looser.

 
This was the case with a gentleman from Allen County. He contacted me Saturday night (10/17/20) to tell me that while he was cutting some limbs out of some pine trees and pulling saplings the night before,he and a friend were feeling rushed as darkness approached. Apparently with the cooler temperatures his ring had slipped off. They looked for it for a short time and the gentleman returned the next day with two friends to continue the search. By that point the yard had been mowed and even with the freshly cut grass they could not find the ring .  after dropping another ring in the grass to see if he could find that ring he noticed how quickly it was covered. He quickly picked the second ring back up but this also concerned him. If the grass is hiding the ring how do I find it?  He and his friends checked the limbs that they had cut out of the pine tree as well as the brush they had picked up before cutting it down into smaller pieces and putting it in a dumpster. They then headed back to the respective homes while the gentleman reviewed his possible options.  Do I give up on the ring?… Do I try to purchase a metal detector and see if I can find it myself?  He started to check Google and that’s when he ran across me on TheRingfinders.com which is also about the same time his friend contacted him with the same information. He grabbed his phone and gave me a call to see if I could possibly help him with his dilemma.

Hunting was tough in the area but we still got it done.

When I answered the phone he had explained to me what the situation was, what had happened and what he had lost. Normally, he removes his rings when he does this sort of work but he did not on this occasion and was not very happy with himself that such a thing had been allowed to happen. He mentioned that he was a big believer in karma and thought that since he as well as his friend had found my information at basically the same time that it was karma telling him to give me a try.
 
After many questions for him about the area it was lost in, the conditions it was lost under, what the ring looked like including the composition of the Ring and any other identifying marks I told him I thought I could help. He was of course very happy to hear this. He was very accommodating to make his schedule meet up with mine and we made plans to meet up the next afternoon at a restaurant in his area to follow him to the location where the ring had been lost.
 
My wife and I made the trip the next afternoon to meet up with the gentleman who was an absolute pleasure to meet. He had been very thoughtful in writing down directions to the location even though we were going to follow him just in case we got lost. He had even called me when we were on our way to let us know it was raining in the area we were traveling to period he was concerned that that may affect my equipment and if we needed to we could back it up an hour or so for the rain to pass. I had told him we were on the road and would see him soon. The rain was no worry since I was bringing a waterproof machine.

Hunting was tough in the area but we still got it done.

After meeting at the restaurant and following him to the location where the ring was lost I had him explain the conditions again in which the ring was lost under and show me the area that he believed it to be in.  As I grabbed my detector I dumped my pouch into a bucket to show him there was nothing in the pouch. I have recently begun doing this as much for my protection as the person I am searching for their lost item. After showing the pouch was empty I told him that once I was done I would again empty the pouch so that he could see anything that was in it.
Turning on the detector I headed for the trees. I felt I should clear that area first and then start covering the grass between the trees and the pavement where they had been working. Just a few short feet into the trees the brush became fairly thick. I explained to him I was going to remove any surface signals that may mask the item. Next thing you know the brush is thick enough I am on my hands and knees and a detector is almost useless at this point. I’m crawling around on twigs, pine needles and pine cones picking up surface trash and other metal targets on the surface with a pin pointer to clear the area. I found many trash targets as well as some glass bottles. I also found a Lincoln penny while crawling around on the ground . Then I got a signal and brushed the pine cones out of the way and saw the bottom of a gold band. I knew right away this must be the ring . As I rolled it over in my hand to see the stone there was no doubt it was the item I was looking for. The item I had been looking for was a gold band with a 1.25 to 1.5 carat diamond.
 
After about 30 minutes, my pouch was full. I started out of the trees to try and get rid of some of the trash. I handed him two bottles that he promptly took over to the dumpster to dispose of while I started dumping my pouch into the bucket. Showing him all the trash that had been found he walked over to his truck to get a trash bag to put it in to properly dispose of it. When he returned from his truck I held out my hand to show him the Lincoln penny that I had found in the trees. He glanced at it and said that it was just a penny and I could keep it if I wanted. I told him I had ran across the penny and stuck it in my pocket because that’s not what I was there to find. I was there to find a ring
  He agreed that yes, he was hoping I could return his ring to him. I sat the penny down on the back of the truck and as he started to pick up the trash again, I mentioned to him that I had also found this laying on the ground in the trees and held out my hand to present him with his lost ring. He was both very surprised and very happy! He then asked me if he could possibly have the penny that I had showed him due to the fact that it could be a Good luck Penny, since I found his ring right after that . I of course promptly complied and told him with a smile yes! You can have the penny as well.
I asked him to tell me a bit about the ring, if he would. He mentioned that he had bought the diamond around 40 years ago and shortly after that bought the setting and band for it. He had managed to keep it all these years until that cool October Friday night and less than 48 hours after being lost we were able to return it promptly back to its rightful owner.
I can understand why he was hoping to get his ring returned. It is definitely a very nice looking ring and one to be proud of for a return . As a side note, due to the situation that we are in currently with Covid-19 even though the picture does not show it due to the masks we were both smiling and very happy in this picture. I was happy to be a part of this great return and the gentleman was certainly very thankful and happy to have his ring back in such a short amount of time.

A happy return. (10/18/20)

Covid-19 couldn’t kill this great return!  Good people do good things to help others… Karma does shine through!
After getting some photos we said our goodbyes and wished each other the best. Once I got home I received this message from him.

Lost wedding band found in New Concord

from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

I had another ring find adventure today in New Concord Ohio. I first have to thank Jeff Morgan (#seattleringfinder) for the encouragement and help that he gave Kendal. And thanks to Sam, the first Ringfinder, for all the time you spent looking for it. The client told me everywhere you looked so I knew the ring wasn’t there, which narrowed my search area considerably. I found it where no one would expect it!! Crazy how it got way back there!! Here is the story from Kendal.

My husband lost his wedding ring back in Nov 2019. Our golden retriever had just started jumping on cars when pulling in our driveway. As we pulled in, she started jumping on our car, so he put it in park, got out, and went to swing at her and his ring flew off his finger. (Obviously 2 big he just wouldn’t go get it sized. We have been married since Aug. 2012) We searched for hours. Days. Weeks. Had another ring finder come out. They searched for about 4-5hours. No luck. I wasn’t ready to give up. I knew 100% it was out there! I contacted Steve and he was willing to give it a shot! In less than 3 hours he FOUND it on the other side of our driveway not far from where my husband was! Whoop whoop!
THANK YOU Steve!!!!
Now to make him go get it resized

Lost engagement ring found with metal detector

from Marietta (Ohio, United States)

I received a call from a good friend in Georgia back in March. He tells me about his wife losing her engagement and wedding ring along a highway. He had a rented metal detector and he said it was going crazy with all the trash along the road. I was able to hear thru the phone what the detector was doing so I was able to help him with his settings to aide in his search. He eventually found the wedding band but not able to locate the engagement ring. That really bothered me cause I knew it couldn’t be far but a 9 hour drive kept me from going. Anyways, here is the story from my friend Jason from Georgia.

“Your ring is still there,” said Steve, trying to reassure me over the phone. I had given up hope. On March 3 my wife lost both her wedding band and engagement ring on the grassy shoulder of a two-lane highway in rural Georgia. I rented a metal detector and contacted my friend Steve in Ohio for advice since I knew he had experience with this sort of thing. Thanks to his guidance, I located the wedding band, but after returning three times to search with my rented equipment, I finally despaired of ever again regaining my wife’s engagement ring.

Then Steve came down to Georgia for some turkey hunting with me. Six weeks had passed since my wife lost her ring, but one afternoon on our way back from the field, he suggested that we go have another look. Even though I had little expectation that we would find the ring, I agreed.

The rough grass along the road’s edge was now twice as tall. We found plenty of buried aluminum cans and other random garbage. I felt like we were wasting time, but Steve was not dissuaded from his task. After searching for about an hour, his equipment gave him the kind of strong reading that he was hoping for. “This could be it,” he said. Something small and round was sparkling in the sunlight as the detector’s coil swept the grass to and fro. We both knew what it was.

I had spent more than twelve hours searching that highway shoulder with speeding automobiles whizzing by just a few feet from my head, without finding that elusive engagement ring. Now Steve, with his experience and advanced equipment, had located the ring in barely an hour.

That evening I surprised my wife with the ring, and her relief and elation was a thrill to behold. Thanks Steve

Ring Lost Several Years Ago in Levittown PA, Found by Dave Milsted

Several months ago I received a call from Trisha. She lost a ring several years ago in the yard of a friend in Levittown Pa. We texted back & forth and set up a date. The day before we were to look for the ring she sent me a message that there was a problem and she would get back to me. She kept in touch.

This week she texted and asked what my availability was. We agreed on Sunday morning at 8 am. I started packing up my truck at 6:30, and it starts pouring. Ok, better pack my rain gear and switch my detector to waterproof.

We met, and it is raining. I put on my bright yellow rain gear, pants, and jacket. I look like I am going to be on the show Deadliest Catch. Trisha takes me to the area that she believes the ring is located in. She was playing volleyball with friends and went to serve the ball. When she hit the ball, her ring went flying. She had warned me that there are a lot of bottle caps and pull tabs in the area, she was right!! Her husband had looked several years ago with a metal detector and didn’t have any luck.

About 10 minutes into the search her friends said that she was in a different area of the yard. So I expanded my search.  2 spoons, and several trash targets later I get the tone I am listening for. About an inch down in the dirt is a beautiful gold & ruby ring.

Trica comes running down off of the porch, and I get a very big hug. She then explains the history of the ring. The ring is her best friends mothers ring. It was given to Trica after the mother past away. Her best friend had an identical ring made while her mother was still living. She hasn’t been able to tell her friend that she lost the ring. She just saw her friend yesterday, and she was still wearing the identical ring. Trisha now says that she will tell her friend the story of her ring. So much sentimental value.

Trisha stated when we met before the search that the rain would bring good luck. She also reminded me that when we first spoke on the phone that I said if the ring was in the yard, that I would find it!!

I love my hobby!!!

 

If you have lost a metal item, don’t waste your time renting or buying a metal detector. It takes years of practice to learn what a metal detector is trying to tell you. Call a professional.

 

Stone Harbor NJ Lost Wedding Ring Found by Dave Milsted

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1- 856-433-0719

I received a desperate email from a devastated woman. I was Mary’s last hope. The day before she went with her family for a day trip to the beach in Stone Harbor NJ. While her husband in the water with their daughter, he watched his ring fall off his hand and sink into the sandy bottom. They searched for a while with no success.

They drove back home thinking that the ring was gone forever. A search of the internet, later that night brought Mary to the Ring Finders site since I have made other recoveries in Stone Harbor. She sent me an email around midnight.

I didn’t see it until after my 6-mile run the next morning. I answered her email asking all of the questions needed when doing a water search. I also followed up with a phone call. Mary answered all of my questions, but she said there was someone else already looking for the ring. I said to let me know if she needed me when he was done.

Later in the morning, I called the other detectorist. He said that he didn’t have any luck in finding it. So Mary and I were in touch again. I told her that I would go look for her.

On the drive to the beach, I was getting a gut feeling that this wouldn’t be successful. Someone else already searched the area. I asked for help from above from my mom & my mentor.

I got to the beach and got another bad feeling. I waited till the lifeguards left. I was in the water at 5 pm. I didn’t get my first signal till 5:10 pm. It was a very promising sound and number on my CTX 3030. It was the ring that I was looking for. I left the beach to get my phone to take some pictures. I sent one to Mary. She called right away and I could tell that she was crying. We made arrangements to meet the next day to return the ring.

I got plenty of hugs when we met. It’s a good thing that my wife doesn’t get jealous!!!

18K with ice–found in the ice! (My first find blog!)

from Bowie (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-240-476-4738

Greetings!

Well, not my first successful ring return, but my first blog on the subject!  This is my second successful recovery for 2016 and I just wanted to share because we’re off to such a good start this year.

I received a message from a gentleman in Gaithersburg (a little north of DC) who required my assistance in locating an 18K gold ring with diamonds.  The ring was lost from a third story balcony.  His wife was throwing snow up in the air while he photographed her.  One photo the ring was there, the next photo, GONE!  They sifted and melted over two feet of snow for quite some time before turning to the internet for help.

I was able to make it out a couple days later and the search was on!  Directly below the balcony was a concrete slab which was a lower neighbor’s porch area.  A mere foot from that was a 10-12 foot row of bushes, no taller than about three feet.  Most of the snow had melted from the slab and only about 6 or 7″ remained in the grass on the other side of the bushes.  I started right in just on the other side of the bushes, thinking the ring probably landed on shrubs and slowly melted down into the grass just a foot or two away.  My machine is a Fisher F75 which is very chatty and sensitive.  I was dealing with extensive interference and had to change frequencies a few times to make the detector even partially stable.  Additionally, the concrete slab was rebar-reinforced and trash was abundant.  This was going to be tough.  I spent 25 minutes on a mini grid, then turned my focus to the shrubs with my Garrett AT Pro Pointer.  I shook the plants like a madman to make sure the ring was surely out of the limbs, but still scanned the entire hedgerow with my probe just to be sure, top to bottom!  I wrote off signal after signal that was either too large, or just below the surface.  This ring would either be in the snow, or melted down to the top of the ground.  We were still empty handed after quite some time was spent hovering over and reaching under the shrubs.  Since my machine was useless on the concrete slab, I picked up the remaining hardened ice and snow and carried it out to an area that I could detect.  Then I scraped all the remaining slushy filth off to the side of the slab so I can run my probe through every last drop of disgusting, freezing crap!

Empty.  Nothing in the snow I removed from the slab.  Nothing in the slush I pushed off the side either.  I began hinting at how well my new friend knew his neighbors below, as it seemed the ring may had been picked up from a previously melted area.  It’s hard to stay positive after quite some time hunting such a small area.  All the interference and large buried objects and trash made it exceptionally tricky.

I picked my detector up for a third and what I figured would be the final time.  I dawned my headphones as it continued to just chatter away.  I also decreased the sensitivity further and changed the frequency yet again.  I started sweeping my detector on the very first line that I had originally made, but came in from the opposing end.

Then it happened. I got ‘that’ signal.  I either barely missed it on my first pass, or hadn’t settled down with all the interference and trashy targets yet.   It was a repeatable 18-20 readout on my F75 which indicates small, high karat gold.  Nice sharp signal, but not quite as loud as I expected.  I pinpointed the target, knelt down and plunged my detector probe a few inches into the 6″ packed snow and ice layer.  To my instant delight it vibrated and sounded off, and I could tell this object was either in the snow, or right on the top of the ground.  I cut an ice plug with my sharp Lesche digging tool and popped out the freezing square like a snow cookie.  The signal had disappeared from the hole.  JOY!  Whatever it was has been moved from the hole!  At that point I gave the separated ice brick a little smack, and there it was, a tiny, gorgeous, miraculous little gold ring staring back at me and the gentleman who had remained very positive throughout the hunt as my faith began to dwindle!  I snatched it out of the snow the moment that gold glint caught my eye and shoved it into the hands of its rightful owner who had instantly gone from reserved and patient to jumping up in the air and wrapping me up in a huge, ecstatic embrace.  An excellent hug it was.

My only regret?  Not taking a close-up picture of the ring.  But that’s ok because the smiling faces are what it’s all about, and that is precisely why Chris Turner created theringfinders.com in the first place.

So it was a diligent hunt and a successful mission, complete with Indian coffee and toast afterward while I got to know two very lovely people who had moved to the USA only two weeks earlier!  Welcome to the USA, and don’t trust the snow!!

Thanks for reading and best wishes to all.

Lost Tiffany Silver Pendant UBC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

The other day I received a call from a young lady by the name of Ciara that had lost a very special small Silver Tiffany Pendent in the shape of a bean. This bean was a symbol of love given to her by her mother.  Ciara is a rugby player for UBC (University British Columbia) and at practice she forgot to take her pendent off and during the workout it was ripped off her neck by accident.

She was very smart to make a mental note to the exact location it was ripped off her neck. This is fantastic as it makes the search much more easier when we can focus the search in a small area, specially when the item is so small.

I asked the type question that I always do to make sure I was in the right area and I had her put out some red cones to mark the search area.  After 10 minutes or so I bent down to check out a signal with my pin pointer and saw a little silver bean in the grass!

I put it in my hand and walked over to Ciara to ask her a few more questions and then held out the bean so she could see that I found it…I love when I can surprise people and she was surprised!!

I found out that the silver bean was her good luck charm,  she felt it helped her on her tests and on the rugby field. I’m happy that she has it back! Good Luck on your rugby season!!!
