Matching Silver Wedding Band Recovered in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA 94117

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Michael was reading on his favorite bench in the Fuschia Dell area of Golden Gate Park when an annoying fly began buzzing him. After swatting at the fly with his left hand, he realized his wedding ring had flown off into the grass around his bench.

Michael searched and searched the area for his ring but could not find it. He and his partner returned the next day, but were again unsuccessful in locating the ring.

You might think a silver wedding band is not too expensive and could be easily replaced. But this heavy silver ring was part of a matching pair of custom wedding bands created over 30 years ago!

A friend of theirs found THE RING FINDERS on the Internet and recommended me to the guys. I was able to get out the next evening, and after 40 minutes searching the broad landing zone to the left of Michael’s bench, I finally located his beautiful oak leaf cluster silver ring, deep in the green grass, right in front of his favorite bench.

 

Beautiful matching oak leaf designs, together again!

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING BATON ROUGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Taloria called late Saturday afternoon looking for help in finding her lost engagement ring. It was too late to drive the 1 ½ hrs to Baton Rouge and get any hunting in before dark, so we set up to meet early the next morning. When we arrived at the site, Taloria said she was on her way to a party with friends when she placed her engagement ring on her lap to apply some hand lotion. When they had parked in the grassy field, she exited the car not thinking about the ring. When she realized the ring was gone, she hunted in and around the car but did not find it. She then called us to help. Being she knew where the car was parked, the search area was small. The problems were tall grass and lots of trash (foil, pull tabs, drink containers, etc.). The hunt was very tedious.  Sid got tired of the constant up and down to check out hits. He got on his hands and knees and crawled around using the pin pointer. The technique worked. A hit with the pointer and glints of shiny metal proved to be the ring. Taloria (also Carrie and Sid) were very excited. After reuniting Taloria with her beautiful ring, lots of hugs, lots of smiles, and lots of pictures, we all headed home.

Ring found at Ocean Beach

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Richard called me to say that he accidentally lost his wife Simone’s gold ring in the sand at Ocean Beach,  She had given him the ring so that she wouldn’t go into the ocean with it and lose it! Richard had it on his pinky when the unthinkable happened and it ended up in the dry sand. Never fear, The Ring Finders are here! I grabbed my gear, asked the wife to come along in case there wasn’t any parking, and headed out the door. Turns out there was plenty of parking, so, my wife and I went over and met Richard and Simone. We got the story and the approximate search area where I went to work. Not 30 seconds later, I get a nice solid 9 on my Equinox 800. Poked my TRX pin pointer into the sand and chased a signal for a few seconds until I cornered it and pulled a pretty little gold ring back into the sunlight. A relieved Richard and a happy Simone were now able to enjoy the rest of the day. A pleasure to meet you and thank you for the reward.

Lost Diamond Ring…Found Near Burlington, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call from Pete last month asking if I could help find his fiancé’s lost engagement ring at the bottom of a farm pond. I said maybe if it wasn’t too deep. He said he thought it was between 3 and 4 feet where she lost it. I said I’ll give it a try.

They have a small boat that they use on this pond and while coming to shore she fell out of the back of the boat. She lost her phone, sunglasses, keys and a 3 carat diamond ring!

The items had been in the water about a week when I got the call and arrived. After getting in with my detector and long handled scoop I found that the bottom was mud and at a slant so it made scooping a little difficult.

The first item recovered was her cell phone. I could feel it with my foot so instead of scooping I just pushed it in the scoop with my foot. The second thing found was her sunglasses. The third thing was the ring and I recovered it by leaning over with my pinpointer and pulling it out with my fingers. After that he didn’t care about the keys anymore!

I’ve been waiting on a picture of the happy couple for the book of smiles but it looks like it might not come so I decided to post without it but I thank him for the generous reward.

I received an email from Erin about searching for her lost wedding ring in her backyard. It had come off her finger somewhere behind her patio in the backyard.

We made arrangements for me to come to her house after work. Her husband showed me the area.

I got my equipment together and found it in about 10 minutes. I wish they were all that easy!

Lost Gold Pendent Found in North Vancouver…

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

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.

Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!

Lost Ring in the Gulf – FOUND!!!

from Pensacola (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

This is an awesome ring that I actually recovered a couple of weeks ago but I’ve been waiting to post and keeping it safe until Patrick was able to get back down here from Huntsville, AL.  I love this story because it seems like what I would do if the situation was reversed.  Patrick called me after he and his wife had already gone home and told me that his wife had lost her ring in the Gulf of Mexico 9 days earlier! 😳  They had already contacted their insurance carrier and been told that they had a claim.  Unfortunately, as we all know, when you file a claim your future payments go up.  Most importantly, even though you may be able to pay for a replacement, you can never get back the actual ring that holds so many memories unless you go find it.  That’s why when Patrick and his wife stumbled across TheRingFinders.com and saw my page, they gave me a call.  I was feeling lucky having already found a ring that morning an hour away so I decided to head out to Pensacola Beach late that afternoon.  The people at the Margaritaville hotel were awesome and quickly gave me permission to park so that I could help out one of their previous guests.  When I got down to the beach I thought to myself that this would definitely be a record for wave height if I was able to find it.  I waded in and I was very quickly taking waves over my head (I’m 6’3” 😳) but luckily they were spaced out where I could work and I like a challenge.  Patrick gave fantastic directions over the phone and I must admit that I was surprised when after less than 10 minutes I heard a fantastic signal and I was able to gently scoop up this gorgeous ring buried about 7 inches down.  To say that Patrick was thrilled when I called him is an understatement!  I am so glad that they took a chance and reached out to me even after they thought it was lost forever!  What a great day!

Lost Engagement Ring – Gulf Shores, AL – FOUND!!!

from Pensacola (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

I love good people and I really love being able to help them out when they have lost a ring.  I met my new friends Christa and Ryan today in Gulf Shores, AL after reaching out to me about  the possibility of finding Christa’s rose gold and diamond engagement ring that she lost in the shore break yesterday.  They told me that they were here from Texas and Christa had been cooling off in the water and was walking out of the surf when she was knocked to her knees by a wave.  She immediately realized that her ring was gone and Ryan helped try to search down in the sand for it only to discover that it was missing.  Christa found me last night on TheRingFinders.com and I returned her email this morning.  Ryan and I got a chance to talk shortly thereafter and I knew I had to help them out immediately.  My kids and I headed that way despite the rain and found Ryan in the parking lot buying us a parking pass, what a great guy.  We walked down and met Christa on the beach and talked for a second.  I quickly lost focus and had to talk to a well meaning guy with a metal detector about how we were thankful but we didn’t want his help.  After hopefully explaining that I didn’t need his help and in fact his presence there was making my new friends very nervous, he finally stalked us from a bit farther away and I could get started.  This is why it’s so important to start looking for it immediately.  About 45 mins later, Christa and Ryan came and got me and confessed that they may have been down the beach to the east 40-50yds.  I was thrilled to hear it because this means they have really been thinking about where the ring is.  I quickly moved that way and started over my grid search and after several coins I finally found that sweet sound and and showed them the scoop.  You can tell by the pictures that they are very happy to get the ring back.  Thank you so much Ryan and Christa for trusting me with your treasure.

 

Lost Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ

from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-215-850-0188

I received a call from Abe after he lost his 14k white gold wedding band with diamonds on the first day of vacation in Ocean City NJ.  I met Abe at the beach and he said that the ring was in his pocket with his wallet.  When he went to meet the ice cream man he pulled out his wallet while walking and must have dropped the ring in the sand somewhere between where they were sitting and the ice cream man. Several people had been looking for the ring but there search was unsuccessful.  The search area was large and the ring was about 150 feet from where they were sitting. After a through grid and search of the area the ring came out of the sand! Abe came and gave me a huge hug and thanked me! Abe said the ring is very sentimental and was very happy that the ring was found!
