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: (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!!!

“Hey, is that a metal detector? Cool!”

from Charlotte (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-828-539-0270

Hi everybody!

I get asked a lot of questions about metal detecting and how it came to be such a great part of my life ( next to my wife and family of course !) So, I thought I’d answer a few of those questions today. Here goes!

So what do you do? Well, I enjoy meeting people and helping people. People often lose jewelry or other sentimental items at various places such as the beach, a lake, a park, or even the backyard. Depending on the circumstances, it can difficult to locate that lost item. I help people find those personal treasures with a metal detector.

Do you just look for other peoples lost stuff? Gosh no! I’m a treasure hunter at heart and its my greatest passion. I’ll take any free moment where I can get away to metal detect, doesn’t matter if its the beach, lake, river, park or yard, I’m there!

Do you ever find anything good? I always chuckle a bit when I get asked this, because to me being a successful metal detectorist is a numbers game combined with skill. You want it to pay, well you gotta play! It takes time to recover items of value. Sadly, there’s a lot of trash under our feet. For every ring that is found, there could have been 50 or more soda can tabs that came before it. Its a skill that’s learned not by reading a book ( they do help and there’s lots out there including you tube videos, blogs and forums ) but instead by spending time using your machine and getting to know its personality. Each machine kind of has its own little personality and tone. If you take the time to get to know it can tell you a lot. BUT…. yes. I have found some great stuff. Some of which was valuable (jewelry) and some weren’t as valuable in the monetary sense but still important from a historical perspective (relics).

What’s the coolest thing you’ve found? That’s a tough one, there’s too many to choose from. Silver or Gold jewelry is always great, but there’ve been some pretty cool historical relics too. One of which, I’m not at liberty to disclose the details, but it was by far the most coolest thing I’ve ever found and I actually shared that find with my dad. Great memory! More recently, I found a 1910 UMC shotgun shell cap. It wasn’t worth too much dollar wise, but I recovered it underneath an old oak tree. So its pretty cool to imagine that 105 years ago someone was under that tree and dropped the casing there.

How did you get into metal detecting? My mom got me into it. When I was young , like 8 or 9, she ordered a Garrett GTA model and thought it would be fun to use for the family. I grew up on an old farm so there were plenty of places to start looking for buried treasure. When I got a bit older,  I remember her taking me a metal detector shop and we picked out a new to me but used machine. It was a Whites 5900 Di Pro. I still have it today. I don’t use it much, but it hangs on my wall and its the one machine I’m the most proud of and smile every time I look at it.

How many detectors do you own? Now, if you were to ask my wife that question, she’d said TOO MANY! I own several detectors, but they each have a specific purpose for specific conditions. Some for underwater and some for land.

Is this your fulltime job? No, not yet 😉 I would love for this to expand into a fulltime gig. But I’m thankful that I’m blessed with the opportunities that I have been given.

What’s the best thing you like about metal detecting? Hmmm, well that’s actually a two-parter for me. 1) I love the reactions and surprise when I find stuff that people had lost, that’s a pretty cool feeling. 2) I love putting on my headphones and just listening for the tones. When those headphones are on, I don’t think about anything else. Its a total break from everyday stresses. I could do this everyday, all day.

Is there any specific place you’d like to detect? YES everywhere!!! I would definitely love to travel to Europe and Japan to detect. Both of those area are so rich with history. It would be awesome to recover a roman coin or something similar.

That covers most of it. If you guys have other questions for me, just holler! Thanks for reading!

Hello!  My name is Josh Kimmel.  I recently joined The Ring Finders.  I am very involved with metal detecting and have a true passion for this hobby / lifestyle as well as a passion for recovering history in all of it’s forms.  My passion for metal detecting goes beyond just merely trying to find pieces of the past, I also have a passion for helping others locate those special lost items that they thought may have been lost forever.  That’s right!, I enjoying trying to help others find these items and strive to reunite people with their items.  Jewelry such as class rings, wedding bands, engagement rings, gold, silver, platinum and other rings and jewelry to keys and even property markers.  I have been asked to search for many different things and strive to do my best to locate them when possible.   One of my favorite returns was of a silver and platinum class ring that had been lost for approx. 31 years when I one day found it and tracked the owner down to return it to her within 2 weeks.  When people lose that precious, sentimental item it can be very distressing and I do what I can.  Each lost item is unique and has a story of it’s own.  When that item is lost by someone that story doesn’t have to end.    With a recovery that story can continue.

 

If you are in the Celina, OH or Grand Lake St. Mary’s area or even the Ohio counties of Mercer, Auglaize, Van Wert, Allen and other outlying areas I just may be able to help.  Why try to rent a metal detector or find a metal detector rental to try and locate your lost sentimental item or a particular metal item you would like found when you can contact a metal detector specialist that will use many years of experience as well as some of the best equipment to try and locate that item for you.  Forget renting the detector and get a detectorist!

 

My years of experience and the equipment I use enable me to find and locate many different metal items in all terrains.  Parks, private yards, school yards, tot lots, beaches, snow, water(up to 5ft deep), fields, woods, hillsides and anywhere else for that matter.  Rings, jewelry, property markers, cache hunting, property searches and so on I’m always trying to help people with my experience.  I even offer my services to Realtor s, Law enforcement, and insurace companies as well others and do what I can to help.

 

If you are in or around any of the above mentioned or surrounding areas of Ohio contact me and we can discuss the situation.

 

 

 

 

Captiva Island, Florida — Diamond Ring Recovery

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

imageMonday, April 28, 2014

Laura Citron, a genuinely sweet gal from Atlanta GA was enjoying a charity auction outing with a former college roommate at South Seas Island Resort in Captiva Island, FL.  They were enjoying the unseasonably warm gulf waters when her cherished gold, platinum and diamond ring suddenly slipped off her finger in waist deep water.  Helpful resorters and three eager lads frantically searched for the ring for some time–all to no avail.  The sentimental and material loss, along with not knowing how her husband would react, for the moment, seemed more than she could bear.  She had also dropped her “scheduled insurance endorsement” for the ring on her homeowners policy two years previously.

Theringfinders.com now springs into action.  A helpful captain of a cruise boat found our website and gave Laura my phone number.  She gave me a call, but unfortunately my wife and I were unavailable for an immediate response for her desperate call for help.  Due to the late hour of the day, I then decided to call my in laws whom we live with and are associate ring finder hobbiests with my wife and I.  I passed on Laura’s contact information to them.  My in laws had friends visiting from Indiana and the four of them met Laura the next day at South Seas Island Resort to search for the ring.

Laura and her friend seemed to have a fairly accurate description as to where the ring was lost.   After 90 minutes of searching, the prospects of a successful recovery were starting to look grim having already searched over 200 feet of beach front in shoulder deep water.  However, after expanding the search another 20 foot northward in chest deep water, the Minelab Excaliber II gave that familiar sound every ring finder loves to hear! Bingo–another successful recovery.

By this time there was quite a little gathering of hopeful enthusiasts including some resort staff, awaiting the outcome of this intense search.  Needless to say, the reuniting of this ring with its rightful owner, brought tears, cheers, high fives and finally, a night of restful sleep.  Within minutes, this happy reunion via Facebook was announced to the world.  Although some in the crowd called this find “a miracle” it was actually the result of persistent grid searching in combination of having the right equipment for the task. image
