North Myrtle Beach Ear Ring Find Leads To Lost Washington, NC Ring Being Found

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

John found out about his friend’s lost ear ring being found by Ring-Finder Jim Wren in the North Myrtle Beach sand.  It was that moment John discovered the great service The Ring Finders provide.

John had lost his gold wedding band two month prior.  John was spending the day at a family member’s house playing with the kids all over the yard.  This is when the ring fell off without John realizing it was gone.  This ring had very special meaning as it belonged to his Grandfather.  John messaged Crystal Coast Ring Finders and a day was planned to search the whole yard.  Communication was very important to try to pinpoint the location of activity but the yard was full of various debris making this search difficult.  Persistence paid off as the ring was found near a buried metallic item in the backyard.  The sun was hot and the bugs were hungry.  I was very happy the search was a success.

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Lajuan texted Crystal Coast Ring Finders about his ring he recently lost while cutting grass.  He believed it would be near the road ditch where his mower had gotten stuck that day.  After an hour of searching he front yard scrupulously,  a short search in the backyard near the back privacy fence produced his wonderful ring.  The day was heating up quickly, so it was a perfect time to ring his doorbell and return his ring that had been lost for days.

Lost Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Toleen lost her wedding set in Ocean City, NJ yesterday while spending the day with her family on the beach.  The rings were placed in the pocket of the beach chair and fell in the sand when she folded it up. Her daughter, Alexa, searched and found my Ring Finders South Jersey page when the family realized the rings were lost. While getting some preliminary information before searching, I asked if anyone took any pictures when they sitting on the beach. Her daughter, Liana, had a TikTok video with houses in the background that helped give an approximate location. After roughly 35 minutes of gridding the area, the rings were found! Now Toleen and her family can enjoy the rest of their vacation in Ocean City, NJ.

Harwich Port, Cape Cod, MA Lost Engagement Ring Found and Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

September 5, 2021

The end of summer was approaching as was the ending of another family tradition, a clambake on the fluffy sand that laid between the house and Nantucket Sound. The fun in the sand, the bake and meal were complete and the enjoyment of the waning sunlight were at hand. But panic set in when an ill fated hand movement let Rachel’s engagement ring slip from its resting place in front of the wedding band. The band stayed from Rachel’s hand and a search for the diamond was initiated. Raking the sand in a circle did not bring the ring into the twilight or beam of the flashlight.

It was time to request help from TheRingFinders. I unfortunately did not check my texts until about 3:30AM. At that time I sent a reply saying 9AM or 5PM would be a good time to meet and search, considering the tide and previous ring finding appointment that had been made the night before. 9AM came back to me as the time to shoot for. After contacting Leighton and urging him to meet me earlier than we had planned to so we could search for Rachel’s ring before meeting our noon contact. All was set and we were ready to start searching just before 9AM.

It was our fortune that the rake circle was still visible in the sand. Leighton went left and I stayed right of the shovel that was left to mark the previous night’s search. I had found a bottle cap and Leighton a piece of scrap aluminum. It was time to enlarge the search area. Leighton stayed seaward and I toward the soft sand. About four feet from the edge of the circle a familiar sound was in my ears and a ring that had brought forth the sound was in my scoop. It was time to let Rachel remove her ring and replace it on her finger where it belonged. Maybe three minutes elapsed since the start of the search to the ring return’s completion. Leighton and I just are so grateful for the precise markings made while a loss is fresh in the minds of those that have first hand information about the loss

As we always do, gather some information for the blog, photos, stories and passing of congratulations and Thank Yous. Then it was off to lost ring number two for the day. We all had big smiles for the TheRingFinders Book of Smiles.

Lost Gold Ring Found On Surf City, NC Beach

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Bridget was walking with her friend and a dog along the Atlantic Ocean coastline on a Surf City Beach.  It may have been the dog on the leash but Bridget had felt her birthstone ring slide off of her finger into the high tide wave currents.  She was able to get a quick glimpse of the ring before a wave came in and moved items about.  Bridget called me the very next morning and I headed her way to meet her and her father.  She was very good at knowing the area the ring had come off and the 2nd target I dug was her beautiful gold ring laying under 4 inches of sand.  Bridgette had explained she received this ring on her 21st birthday and it had very special meaning.  I was very happy to see her reaction when she knew I had found it.

Diamond Wedding Rings Lost Two Months Ago Found In Morehead City Waters

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Amanda explained to me, two months ago, her daughter had cut her foot in the waters of a small Morehead City, NC beach.  During the excitement, Amanda had taken off her long sleeve coverup shirt to wrap her daughters food on the beach.  She told me that is where she thought her rings were pulled from her finger.  She explained she had a group with metal detectors come out the July 4th weekend to help locate the missing rings.  It wasn’t until a friend had heard about The Ring Finders on a radio broadcast and this lead Amanda to contact Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  My first attempt was to thoroughly search the beach and shallow water.  This beach was full of various garbage, mostly aluminum which is a nemesis to detectorist.  My second day attempt was planned so that it would be during a low tide and more importantly, early enough in the morning that nobody would be in the way of my search.  I arrived at 6am, just before it was getting light enough to see.  I began a search from beach to water and back.  Each time I would go in just above knee deep water as Amanda told me it happened at low tide that day and the deepest she went was knee deep water.  I must admit my doubts of finding the rings lost in a public area 2 months prior were in my mind.  I also knew if I don’t try all possible areas, I wouldn’t be assured I tried my best.  The waters still produced a large amount of aluminum and each time I would try to scoop the target and dump it into my floating sifter.  I was in an area with multiple targets around me when I dumped a scoopful and was about to dig again when I glanced over to see Amanda’s wedding band laying in the basket.  I was in knee deep water at the time.  The very next scoop raised her beautiful engagement ring!

Amanda was very close by and I called her just before 8 am to ask her to come down and help me narrow my search area because of the numerous garbage items I was digging.  Amanda showed up with her daughter and at one point when she looked away, I held out both of her lost rings.  She looked back and noticed in disbelief her rings in my hand.  It is moments like this that make me proud to return items that have so much meaning!

Rings lost at La Jolla Shores found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Helena took off her rings and put them in a pair of shorts she was carrying. While running down the beach, she accidentally dropped the shorts in the dry sand. She picked them back up and continued running down the beach not realizing that her rings had fallen out. When she discovered they were gone, she tried to visually find them by retracing her steps, but, they had sunk out of sight. She lives in another state and had to return home without them. A few days later, she got my contact info and called me and explained the situation. That beach is one of our most detected beaches in the whole area, so, there was always a possibility that the rings had already been found by someone, since it had already been 5 days, but, the search area wasn’t in the most popular areas, so, still a chance. Working by just a map with a large area circled, I knew this might take a while. Helena sent me a photo of the rings on her fingers, so, I had a good visual of what the rings should look like. The two rings she described were a class ring, and a ring with a T shaped top with stones. I headed to the site that night, so I had the place to myself and didn’t have to dodge around people and miss detecting some spots. After about 10 minutes on my first pass, I got a call for a lost set of keys, on the same beach, but, about 3/4 mile away. I went ahead and hiked over to help get the keys, which took about 5 minutes to find. With that lady happy and able to get into her car and take her child and 2 dogs home, I hiked back to my ring search location. Sorry,  I didn’t get any photos of that successful hunt. Everyone was in a hurry, so, it just didn’t happen. It’s now about 10pm. A resumed making passes about 100 yards long and after about another hour, I get yet another pull tab reading and find a 10K gold class ring. Alright, now we’re talking! About a foot away, I get another signal. This time it’s an 18K Tiffany “Love” ring. Hmmm, that wasn’t on her list. Another signal close by and I find another 18K Tiffany ring. Still not a match for the one she identified, but, it looked familiar. I pulled out my phone to take another look at the photo she sent me, and lo and behold, those two rings were also on her hand in the photo! There were 5 rings on her hand, but, she had only mentioned the two. Strange. I continued detecting right around that spot and the next target was the 2nd ring she had described, also an 18K Tiffany ring. One last target and I found the last ring, one with a blue stone…..also 18K Tiffany ring. Wow, what an “Olympic” hunt! 5 rings and 4 of them Tiffany. I texted Helena and asked her if she had just lost two rings, or, all 5. She then admitted that it was all 5, just as I thought. Helena was now happy, but, had to find someone to pick up the rings, as she didn’t want them shipped. Now, a couple of weeks later, a friend of her’s came to pick them up. Thanks for the reward.

 

Sentimental Lost Rings Found Atlantic Beach, NC By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

Kelly started to send me vague questions about my service and what was required from her.  It was a very busy day for me and I also had plans to search for a lost ring the next morning.  Once she gave more details about where she had lost an heirloom gold diamond ring and also a second gold aquamarine ring from her father, I was started to worry as they were very close to a busy section of beach.  I had made plans to sacrifice some sleep to arrive at Atlantic Beach a few hours before heading to my morning appointment in New Bern, NC.  As I knew my search time was short, I “phoned a friend” to assist with the hunt.  Justin and I started at the area Kelly had marked very well with pictures, illustrations and landmarks.  Justin began hunting the upper section of the recently replenished beach that was full of small pieces of aluminum as I worked from the high tide line.  It only took about 30 minutes until Justin was able to winkle out Kelly’s two beautiful rings!  Kelly informed us that she worked in New Bern so we still had time to hand deliver her recently found rings before heading to my previous planned location.
