lost diamond earring Tag | The Ring Finders


  • from Dunedin (Florida, United States)



I received a call from Russ who found my contact information on the Ring Finders website. Russ’s girlfriend had lost a diamond earring in the yard of their home. She was certain that the earring fell from her ear as she was walking around outside after dark talking on her cell phone. They searched for a while with a flashlight but could not locate the earring.

I went to the home the following day and after confirming with Russ that the house and all vehicles had been thoroughly searched, I began grid sweeping the thick St Augustine grass in the area where Russ’s girlfriend thought it most likely she had dropped the earring. I made several adjustments to my Equinox as apparently this area contained a lot of junk from the fairly recent construction of the house. After about an hour of search, we expanded the search area into the second most likely area of the yard. Two hours and several additional search areas later, I had failed to recover the earring, just finding several pieces of scrap. I asked Russ to search his home and vehicles again as well as talk to his girlfriend about other possible locations to search. Russ also said that he would have his girlfriend who was not home at the time provide me with a photo of the other earring in the pair when I returned to search again in the next day or so.

Several hours after I returned home, I received a text from Russ, and you guessed it, he had found the lost earring in his home under a ledge in the shower! (For reasons that I can not include in this post I was not able to obtain a photo of the earring). Russ said that even though I didn’t find it, I brought him good luck.

Russ, thank you for allowing me to assist you in your search for your girlfriend’s earring and for rewarding me for my efforts.




Lost Diamond Stud Earring Found in Yard

  • from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)




On September 28th, 2018 Dee was in the backyard with her grandchildren when they were attacked by wasps. As she was escaping, Dee accidently knocked off her diamond stud earring. She contacted the other local Ringfinder, and Earl was able to search right away. Incredibly, Earl found the back of the earring! He knew I would be searching and left a marker showing where he found the back. Thank you Earl!

Using Dee’s other earring, I calibrated my detector’s digital read-out and began where Earl found the earring back. I looked carefully through the yard. In every lawn, there are many bits of small metal trash, and this was no exception. After several hours and many false hits, I was forced to stop looking. I regretted telling Dee I couldn’t find the earring, showed her where I searched, and pile of small metal I collected from the lawn.  I also asked her if I could stop by and search again in the future. Even though she was disappointed, Dee thanked me for searching, and even gave me a bonus above my call out fee.

August 31st, 2019 UPDATE: FOUND! Dee didn’t realize it, but her case started me on a mission to find a metal detector that is more sensitive to small diamond stud earrings.  Almost a year later I called Dee to ask if I could search again. This time I was armed with a new specialized detector. Luckily, my son was in town and offered to help. After a couple of hours of very, very small metal targets, he suggested an area to try based on the direction Dee was running. On the third target, he caught a glimpse of sparkle and pulled the earring out of the dirt!

If I can be of service, the fastest way to get me is to text or call 703-598-1435.


Look carefully…


It’s right there…

Dee is Suprised and Elated!

Diamon Earring Found!

Dee’s Husband When Showed the Found Earring


Lost Diamond Earring/Spanish Banks/$200 Reward

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call to find a lost diamond earring this morning and the lady told me it had been lost for over 3 weeks at a dog beach in Vancouver, Spanish Banks. She went into the Ocean to cool down and she felt the earring come off…

Her and her husband came back the next day and searched for hours but no luck, I also had no luck as earrings are the single hardest piece of jewellery to find as there is so little gold on the post. If this was lost in a back yard I’d have a great chance in locating he earring.

The time frame would have something to do with it but most detectors will not get a signal on a solitaire diamond earring… Very little weight which would mean that it could have moved down the beach with the tide over the last 3 weeks.

It’s a half karat Diamond Earring exactly like the one in the picture above…$200 Reward if you find and return it to Liz… Contact me and I will put you in touch with the owner who would be extremely thankful to have it back!

I will go back a do a grid search of the area just encase I might get lucky!

Can’t find them all…I love my job!

Lost Diamond Earring/South Surrey/White Rock…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

This story is about a lady who lost her diamond earring in her garden, it was lost for over 1 year. Her husband was driving to work one morning and on the radio he heard an interview on my ”Finders” service and wrote down my number and called me.

He told me about his wife’s earring and how much it bothered her that she lost it in the garden and she couldn’t find it. She knew it was there some where, but where?

Of course I was up for the challenge but I knew it would be a tough one as diamond earrings have to be the hardest thing to search for as there is very little gold on the post, so that makes it very difficult to find.

When I arrived the lady showed me the area of the garden where she believed her earring was lost. She tells me that at one time she was digging around a shrub and felt her earring get caught on a branch, but she never thought to check and see if it was still there.

Due to the time (1 year +) she wasn’t sure which shrub it was… Now the search begins!

I start with my Whites V-Sat gold detector and spend a good two hours along side of the bushes and no luck. Unfortunately the shrubs were close to the side of the house as you can see in the picture above and this was impossible to search as my detector was picking up the metal framing.

My next step was to move the dirt away from the house so I wouldn’t have any interference with my detector. I made 6 piles of dirt and searched each pile, the last pile I received a faint signal and as I was sifting through the dirt I found her earring…

I Love my job!
