Ring lost at Mission Beach Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Trevor was throwing a football around at Mission Beach with a group of friends when his wedding ring flew off during one of his throws. Nobody saw it land in the dry sand, so, trying to find it was hopeless without the proper equipment and knowledge to use it. Trevor’s friend Matt found my contact information and gave me a call. I gathered my gear and hit the road with my wife so she could circle with the car in case we couldn’t find parking. I contacted Matt when I arrived and soon Trevor and some of his friends met me on the beach. I got the low down on how the ring was lost, the search area, and it’s approximate landing spot. This beach stays pretty clean with all the detectorists these days, so, targets were few and far between. After just a few pieces of foil, a couple of bottle caps and a half dozen passes later, I finally got a solid signal in the range I would expect Trevor’s ring to be in. A night in the dog house averted, and a happy Trevor has his precious back again. Thanks for the reward.


Family Gold Heirlooms Recovered from House Fire in New Jersey by Ring Finders South Jersey

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

In need of something recovered?

Don’t wait to call!


I received a call back in May about several sentimental and valuable items lost in a house fire in New Jersey. After several phone calls and a long wait for permits to enter the home site, we were finally able to search for the lost family heirlooms this weekend.

The fire had taken the home down to the foundation which made the recovery search very difficult. The effort continued over the course of a few days. With the help of fellow Ringfinder Matt St.Germain and the family, we were able to recover the gold family heirlooms from the sad and tragic loss.

Lost Wedding Ring Found Just Outside Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

Marco called me about the wedding ring he lost while cleaning up out back. We talked and it became pretty evident that the ring was there. I just needed to pass my metal detector coil above the ring. It wasn’t a question of “If” but instead a question of “How

long?”   Watch the video to see what happens

Ring lost at South Mission Beach Found!

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Danny was playing volleyball at South Mission Beach Friday afternoon, took his wedding ring off before the game started, and put the ring in his shoe on the sideline for safe keeping. During the day, His gear was moved to a different court for another game. After all the games ended, he headed to his car where he proceeded to grab his ring and put his shoes on. Oh oh, no ring! He retraced his steps and searched both areas, but, no luck. He got online and found TheRingFinders.com and my contact info. He called me Saturday afternoon and we made arrangements to meet the next morning at 7am to do the search. We met early Sunday morning and I searched both areas thoroughly, but, no ring. In fact, I only found one cent and a junk charm in the whole area. It was likely someone had already detected that area sometime between when he lost the ring Friday afternoon, and when I searched Sunday morning. I told Danny that I would keep his lost ring on file and contact fellow club members and other I know who detect that beach and let him know if I get any response. Sure enough, I emailed out his lost ring story to my local detecting club and our vice president Rick answered that he think he found it! Rick sent me a photo of the ring he found at that location on Friday night and it was a dead-on match. Rick and I met Danny Monday morning for the return. Sometimes it takes some teamwork for a successful recovery, but, the results are what counts. Thanks for your help Rick. Danny (on the left in the photo) appreciated that.


Diamond Platinum Ring Lost On Beach Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Emerald Isle, NC

JoEllen was spending time with her parents sitting on the Emerald Isle beach along the shoreline.  They were sitting down by the water so they could put their feet in the waves.  She had explained to me she had taken off her very special ring and placed it in her glasses case prior to going to the beach.  While on the beach, she decided to put on her glasses and forgot the ring was also in the case.  It wasn’t until the next morning she had realized the ring was missing and she called Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  The beach sand was very soft and very little items were found during the search.  Her ring was eventually found under about 12 inches of sand.  This was a very challenging search but when you can successfully return an important item to the owner, it makes it worth the effort!

Lost Ring Omaha Found!

  • from Louisville (Nebraska, United States)

Heading back home from a unsuccessful ring recovery in central nebraska for a lady who lost her ring 47 years ago. I received a call from a nice young lay sounding very distress she had lost her wedding ring in her yard. And she didn’t think we were for real and ask if I actually could find a lost ring I assured her I would give it my best shot. So had to wait a whole night and half a day before she was ready for me to start looking. I went to her yard and it was very small and she said that she was swatting at a fly and she felt the ring leave her finger, Well it was a very heavy gold ring and the direction was unknown. So I started to sweep the yard thinking its got to be right on top ha! I looked and looked and looked and was getting all kinds of coin signals. finally a went back and ask exactly what has been done since you lost it, She replied that it rained twice they mowed once and and stomped all over the yard plus parked on top of the grass. Oh boy I said then this ring could be buried and after about 10 minutes of digging about 20 pennies and a couple of dimes and a nickel I received a 21 number signal on my equinox and digging down a inch bam there it was a big beautiful gold ring with diamonds. I started to walk up to the door and she came out and burst into tears. It made me feel so happy to make someone’s day like that just for finding a ring and returning it.

Emerald Isle Fishing Trip Involves Lost Ring Almost Getting Away

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)


David, Kayla and her mother were spending an evening on the beach fishing the shoreline.  Kayla had taken off her engagement ring and placed it in a small bowl.  Just after David caught a fish, Kayla headed down to the water to get a closer look.  Unfortunately, the bowl, holding Kayla’s ring spilled onto the beach just as darkness was setting in.  I happened to be in the area about an hour later and David approached me to ask for my help finding this wonderful ring.  After a few passes and as they were packing up to leave, I was able to pull her ring from the beach.  I was very happy to return this for them as Kayla’s mother told me when I began searching that David had just returned from military service in Afghanistan.    I thank him and all that protect us for their service to our country!

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)




Matt called me and explained that he was doing some landscaping in his back yard in July. He was laying landscape fabric before putting bark mulch on top and in the process took off his gloves several time that day! Late that evening while in the house he realized his ring was not on his finger, He Googled “how to find lost rings” and found me on the Ringfinders web site.
I agreed to meet up with Matt last night around 7:30. He showed me the area which he was working in and with all the nails and other metal object in the mulch it made for a tricky search. With persistence, I finally found his ring! Another happy Client.
