Received a call last week about a silver and gold ring a lady had lost about a month back while she was doing yardwork. She felt it fly off but couldn’t find it. She used a metal detector in the area she thought she lost it in for several hours. Sadly, she wasn’t able to locate it.
When I get to her place, I got the story and the location, and I began swinging. After about 3-4 mins. I knew it wasn’t in the area she thought it was or should be. I began to widen my search area and BOOM a screaming high tone that I knew had to be her ring. It was actually about 5-10 feet away from that area. It only took me about 5 mins to find. Being big silver, it screamed!
Another successful ring recovery!

Over labor day weekend I was contacted by John. While he was at the beach with his wife and friends enjoying the day, He removed his ring to put on some sun block and placed his ring on the arm of his chair. He forgot to put it back on and it wound up falling into the sand and disappeared. I promptly headed out there to help. In about 5 mins he had his ring back! Another great ending!

Bon was playing volleyball at a local park and decided to put his wedding ring in his pocket instead of wearing it. At a certain point after jumping and chasing the ball during a typical game, he checked his pocket and found the ring missing. This wasn’t his first experience with losing this ring, so, he knew who to call…. a Ring Finder. I was out detecting myself, but, quite a ways away when he called. I got to the park just before sunset and started my search in some fairly tall, unmowed grass. Bon was uncertain as to what metal his ring was made of, but, that he thought it was silver. I ran a grid pattern looking for a shallow high conductor, but, nothing of that sort was found. After expanding the search area a bit and still no ring, I went back to the main volleyball court and started checking for ANY shallow target with a good solid sound. It was getting dark and cold, but, after a couple of passes I got a nice low tone in the U.S. nickel range that was right on top of the ground, but, under a few inches of grass. A probe with the pin pointer and sure enough, it was his ring. We were both happy to leave the park and go home to a warm house and hot meal.
Received a call from Debra from Norwood, PA regarding her husband’s lost white gold wedding band. She found me in The Ring Finders directory and shared with me that her husband, Lenny, lost his beautiful white gold wedding band during a New Years celebration the previous week. The details were a little fuzzy because the loss occurred deep into New Years eve and as expected both Debra and Lenny were celebrating quite vigorously. Basically at some point during the evening Lenny found himself out in their small grassy side yard…and soon thereafter noticed his ring missing off his finger. They spent quite a bit of time searching on their hands and knees the following day with no luck. When I arrived to assist in the search a few days later Lenny told me he was convinced it came off in the small grassy side yard. It was a very small search area…maybe 10×20 feet of grass. I booted up my machine and started scanning the area….was getting constant signals from deeper trash metal…but kept scanning looking for that very unique surface gold ring signal. 3 minutes into the search in an area of deep grass I got the signal I was hoping for….with Debra and Lenny looking on….I bent over and picked up a beautiful white gold wedding band! Was very happy to be able to return the ring to them…they were only 3 months into their marriage!
I received a call from Kara around noon today……. Didn’t answer the call at first because of scammers all the time….. The phone rang again so answered it and asked what do you need? Kara said she needed help finding her engagement ring from (1952) that was handed down thru her boyfriends family….. So the pressure was on everybody was watching….. I asked her what had happened, she said it was New Year’s Eve and there were some things that had happened, off came the ring and thrown…… I searched half the yard and went back over it twice…… I said to myself it has to be in the bushes…….. I came back around the bushes and it had dropped out of the bushes……. I then asked her if she thought it would be anywhere else she turned away and (I pulled a Chris Turner) I held up her ring and when she turned around she instantly froze and said really!!!!!! A big hug followed and she said thank you so much…..thanks for calling so soon KARA…….. KARA DIDNT want her picture taken so I asked to take a picture of me holding her ring……
I Received a call from Bob’s wife saying he lost his wedding ring in the yard. I talked to Bob’s wife and she said he lost it in the yard working last Friday….. When I get there Bob comes outside and said he was blowing leaves in the front yard. So I looked in the front flower beds and nothing. Now the front yard still nothing…. Off to the back yard and searched were he said he was but searched outside outside the area he said still nothing…. I move towards the burn pile in the picture…. I heard a told that I didn’t hear before, turned on the trusty pinpointer and guess what was just below the dirt line…. I picked up,his ring didn’t say anything and when he turned around he couldn’t believe it was in the burn pile…. Bob was really happy to have his ring back on his finger…
Gavin reached out to me after a google search led him to the Ring Finder Directory. After a brief conversation I learned of his wife, Brianne’s, lost platinum diamond wedding band. It was handed down to her from multiple generations and carried extreme sentimental value. Apparently she was throwing a ball to her dog at a local park near their home when she felt the ring slip off her finger. They searched for hours on their own before recruiting a youngster with a metal detector next door to aid in the search. After much frantic searching without success they got in touch with me. I arrived at their home later that same day…while they were somewhat skeptical that I would find the ring based on the search area and leaves on the ground…I confidently(arrogantly?) told them I would find the ring in less than 10 minutes! I felt like Babe Ruth calling for the homer! Anyway…we got to the area where the incident occurred and sure enough it was a pretty big area and lots of leaves! But Brianne did a great job marking the area and describing exactly how and where she was throwing when the ring came off. I would have liked for her to have seen rather than just felt the ring come off…but was still pretty confident that it was there.
I wasn’t aware till later that Gavin had been timing me after my claim to find in 10 minutes! Anyway, I gridded the area where i figured the ring must be and on my 3rd pass I got that sweet surface gold/platinum tone in my headphones. I swept some leaves away with my foot…Brianne standing by my side… and pointed to the ground! I think she was initially surprised and somewhat skeptical…then she saw the ring! The first thing she did after picking up the ring was give a big hug to her husband…which was awesome! We laughed and were all so happy. I asked how long the search took…9 minutes!!!
Such a nice couple…I was so happy to be able to come through for them!
So last week I received a call from a wonderful couple that had lost a wedding ring in the leaves in there back yard. This call was from a local couple about 6 miles away. This was a treat for me because it had been a while since I have had a call that was just down the road. I know from what I was told that she really cared about her ring. She was very conscientious about losing the ring so to be safe she removed it and placed it in her pocket. She had done a little work in a flower garden the corner of the house and when she finished, she felt the ring in her pocket. She also had her young son out running around in back with her in the back yard. Part of playing around they formed a big pile of leaves started to bury one another in the pile of leaves. Following playing in the leaves her husband cleaned up the back yard raking and hauling the leaves down to a compost pile further down in the back yard. She had felt for the ring and her heart sank. It was gone. They spent several hours scouring the back yard and leaf pile looking for the ring and nothing was found.
You just know that feeling of something near and dear to your heart and it’s gone. She did a search online for Ringfinders.com and found Paul Nolan a local recovery specialist and texted him. Somehow the text was missed and the following morning her husband gave Paul a call. He asked if I had received the text that hos wife had sent, “ No”. So he asked if it would be possible to come out and see if we could find the ring. About an hour later I pulled into the driveway. They gave me a quick tour of what had happened. So I grabbed my detector and started a quick preliminary search. My primary search area was going to be the leaf pile in the back. Within a minute of reaching the pile location I received a great signal. I tried to carefully move some of the leaves, and it was hiding well. I had left my pin-pointer in the car so I went back to retrieve that. I also brought a small battery-operated blower that I grabbed. Once back at the pile I found the location with the pin pointer and put the blower on low and blew the leaves away from a small one foot circle, and there it was down between some rocks. So I grabbed my equipment and started to hall it back up to the car. As I was heading up she came out on the deck and I asked her if she would like to come grab the ring? What you found the ring? In total disbelief. Come on down. Her husband soon joined her and I took them down to the location where I had blowen the leaves away and they started looking after about 15 seconds she spotted it in the rocks. She was ecstatic. The following pictures are the ring back where it belonged and another photo of the ring.
It was really nice having a call close to home, and one that went as well as could possibly could. What a treat it was. I wish they all would go so well. Congratulations on getting the ring back. I am so happy for the both of you.
Once lost – now is found.
Anthony was doing some landscaping in his yard. After he was done planting a couple of things, he discovered his wedding ring was missing. Not being visible on top of the ground and not knowing how deep it may be buried, he wasn’t able to find it. An online search brought him to TheRingFinders.com and my contact info. We made arrangements for the search the next morning. I arrived with a buddy of mine and got the low down on where Anthony was working and other possible locations where the ring could be. First plant in the back yard, nada, so, we went to the side yard and the other plant. There was also some fresh bark that he had spread over the ground around the new plant. Hunted one side without a sound, I swung a bit over to the other side and got a weak jumpy sound off to the side a bit. I walked around to the other side and tried again. Still a bit of a strange signal, but, my coil was up against an adjacent pot, so, I just got out the pin pointer and investigated. Zeroed in on the target a couple of inches down and discovered it was his ring. Being a mix of tungsten carbide and gold probably produced the odd signal. A pleasure to meet you Anthony, and thank you for the reward. Hopefully the Padres will go to the World Series next year!
