The same choices made everyday are often the same choices made right before one might lose their ring. Likewise for Jamie, when her husband had come home she brought out her two wound up dogs for their moonlight walk. The air’s cool grip clung on tight that night but never the less when the walk was finished the dogs, Jamie’s husband and Jamie all had fun playing around in the pile of leaves. The playing in the leaves came to a close and the family retired back into the house. Upon a quick glance and with a rapid heart beat “my ring is missing” slipped out of Jamie’s mouth. The search was on. Flashlights and retraced steps left both Jamie and her husband at a loss. The next morning the dogs where lethargic with Jamie’s sadness. The only thing Jamie could possibly do was surfed the web for answers. The Knot, a wedding website, told her to call The Ring Finders. So Jamie sent me a frantic text, “I lost my ring are you still available?” I quickly called her and talked about the unfortunate night she had been through and then made arrangements to meet her after work. I knew that the ring could be anywhere in the leaves, on the path they took, in the yard, or on someone else’s hand. Hopeful I took off on my search. A quick pass in the pile of leaves, a stroll through the yard and back in the pile of leaves lead me straight to her ring. With a bit of confidence I looked over my shoulder at Jamie walking beside me and gave her a smile. ” If this signal isn’t your ring I’ll be surprised,”I said. I bent down and slowly pulled back the pile of leaves and revealed Jamie’s lost ring. The choice to enjoy life and have fun is always best, but when something like a lost ring steals away the joy, make sure to remember A Ring Finder is near and willing to help. Thanks Jamie for trusting The Ring finders.

Lost Wedding Ring Found In The Ocean, Warnbro Dog Beach, Perth, Western Australia.

Paul had been at the beach with a group of friends when he decided on going for a swim, unfortunately on his return he discovered that his gold wedding band hadn’t!

After a quick chat on the phone I asked him to go back to the beach and landmark the sandcastle the kids had built which he said he had swum in front of.

This gave me a good reference point to use as a centre point for my search area.

After searching the beach front and about 10 m wide by 30 m out into the water with no joy I rang Paul and sent him a few photo’s from the search site. We both agreed after some discusion that I should extend the serach area to the south. I had only gone in and out 3 times when just over halfway out I finally heard what I’d been waiting for..

Mint day.. Mint result!

a loud but soft edged signal with a distinct double tone..

Paul’s precious.. Found and returned.

A few moments later I looked into my sand scoop and there it was, gleaming in two tone glory!

Love what I do..

Lost gold wedding ring in Puyallup River recovered

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-618-8194

  

I got a call from Dave and he asked if I was the metal detecting guy. I said, “Yes, what did you loose and where?”. He proceeded to tell me that he was still at the Puyallup River and that he had just lost his gold wedding ring while fishing. I could tell he was quite upset about the situation. After requesting that he take several photos of the exact area and how to mark the location I agreed to do a search the next morning.

Being a river hunt I wasn’t quite sure if a recovery would be successful or not but we had to at the very least give it a shot. Our Great North West is full of faster flowing rivers often making it extremely challenging to recover a ring. However we all know the results of not trying, and no one is happy with that result. Come along for the adventure and see how this lost river ring gets recovered and returned to its very appreciative owner.

Heirloom Australian Gold Ring Returned: West Dennis, MA

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

It was August 23 and the summer day was just too wonderful not to go swimming while vacationing on Cape Cod. Even in the 74 degree waters the combination of suntan lotion, hot sun and cooler water caused a very sentimental wedding band to slip from Kevin’s ring finger. The ring was to rest beneath the salt water of the Cape overnight.

The next morning due to prior commitments Luke had to leave the search area without finding the misplaced ring. Luke call me and asked if I would help, sure and I was on my way. Searching the primary area and not finding the ring I moved to an area outside “the box”. Not too far, only about 20 feet, five minutes, the ring of gold was in my ears. A quick scoop and the ring was no longer misplaced, it was on its way back to the owner.

I called Luke. He in turn called Kevin’s wife to tell her the ring had been found and that I would be calling to arrange the physical return. Within the hour Jane and Kevin were at my home relaying the story behind the ring. The ring had been reworked form Jane’s great-grandmother’s gold. A ring that could never be replaced and of unmatched sentimental value. Kevin relayed to me that his finger felt so bare he had purchased a Claddagh on the day his ring was lost and that it will be worn while swimming in the future.

Wedding Charm Sails Away from Wedding Bouquet: Barnstable, MA

Karoline’s day was going perfectly, family, friends, food, beverages, weather, entertainment, you name it it was all perfect, well almost. It seems a bit of wind had untied the knotted string holding a family heirloom, a gold sailboat, close to the bouquet. The sailboat ran aground mooring itself in the soft sand which was soon to be covered by water of the incoming tide.

Many eyes searched and fingers sifted the sand to no avail. As a last resort I was called. My search lasted a bit over two hours covering both the area on the beach and yard also to no avail. About ready to call it a day Karoline’s sister came running and said we have a neighbor’s pictures, some 135 of them, and one shows the sailboat at the feet of the bride and groom. The entourage was on the way to the beach.

Trying to match the photo up with the landscape was no easy task. After the third area was isolated, and I searched it, an area only about 3 inches from one of my previous search marks, the commandeered sailboat was scooped from the fluffy sand. Now I had the fortune to return it to its rightful mooring. One can talk about a million in one, finding the sailboat in the one picture was one of those winning odds.

Ring Toss Recovery Skagit Valley WA

Contact: 1-206-618-8194

  

I received a distressed call from a young lady that she had regrettably tossed her ring out of her bedroom window. She was now in need of a recovery specialist to help recover the ring from her back yard. She had a person that tried searching her yard with a medal detector but came up empty handed. After the initial search she was more distressed now than ever and could not understand why after having thrown her ring straight down into the grass that the ring was not found. After clearing my schedule a few days later I drove the distance to perform a search for her very special ring. She told me that it was an older property and filled with a lot of junk metal and trash. Never the less I arrived on focus to recover the only thing possible in that yard that meant any thing to her, being this very special ring. Being a surface recovery over solid dirt and grass the detection process went pretty quick. Any targets that were not on the surface were quickly passed with the only priority being to recover her ring!

After a shot bit of searching the target area her ring was recovered and it was in very close proximity to a test ring I told her to throw a few days prior. The ring was undamaged and placed back on her finger with a great deal of gratitude and relief that it had been found.

Watch the recovery take place here:

Found Ring Returned Madison Park Beach Seattle

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-618-8194

While on the hunt for another man’s lost wedding ring at Madison Park Beach I was detecting the shallow swimming area and recovered a sterling silver simple men’s wedding band. I noticed it had a 2009 wedding date inscribed inside the band. I knew this obviously held some significant value to someone. It was found in such a place that it had to be an accidental loss. Being after the hours of the lifeguard shack it took the course of a few days and several phone calls. Eventually I was able to get information from the Seattle Parks Departement that lead me to the owner a man named Alex. Alex was a bit confused at fist when I called to confirm his lost ring then he realized after I texted him a photo of his ring that I had in fact found it. We arranged to meet during his early morning commute to work. During our encounter he explained that this ring was hand crafted by a jeweler from his home country and it indeed holds a deep sentimental value to him and his family. He was very appreciative to have it back just in time for his ten year wedding anniversary soon arriving. I am thankful to have reunited this ring to its owner allowing its history of memories and new stories to continue on with Alex for many more years to come.

Watch the reunion of this lost ring to a very appreciative Mr. Alex:

Lost Wedding Ring at Vashon Island WA

Contact: 1-206-618-8194

Susan called me explaining that her husband, Rob, had recently lost his wedding ring on recent boating trip five days prior. The two of them left Point Defiance Marina and motored over to Vashon Island for an enjoyable day on the water. She explained that Rob was on the beach looking at the rocks when a small wave splashed his ring off into the silty water. Rob instantly froze and tried to stay standing over the exact spot. Unfortunately the water was silty and they had no way of searching for the ring. I am happy that Susan was able to find me.

Contact: 1-206-618-8194

 

Received a call from Leon that he lost his six month old white gold wedding band while playing Cricket in Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA.

Leon was visiting from Chicago along with some of his mates from New Zealand. They have been on a traveling Cricket tour visiting many different places. When Leon was fielding he decided to slip his wedding ring into his pocket. He said he was quite concerned that it might fall out of his pocket and indeed it did. After quite a bit of fuss searching through the grass and having no luck with a visual search he looked on line for additional help.

I am happy for him that he was able to reached out to me with a prompt call and wiling to provide a lot of detail from what he could remember of his incident.

Watch the story unfold in this video:
