Nokomis Beach, FL — Engagement Ring Lost in Water Found and Returned!

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

This young lady lost her diamond engagement ring in the Gulf waters of Nokomis Beach just a few hours after her fiancée had proposed.  Many people helped look for the lost ring before darkness set in with no success.  That’s when we received an email and phone call asking for our assistance and arrangements were made to meet the next morning.

Upon our arrival at the beach the next morning, my wife and I met with the couple who had narrowed down the search area where they believed the ring was lost.  The water had been calm overnight and we expressed our confidence in recovering the ring.  Sure enough, within just a few minutes of searching with our detectors, my wife uncovered the lost ring.

With a huge sigh of relief, hugs and smiles were exchanged as the ring was back where it belonged!

Thirty minutes after saying “yes” to a marriage proposal, Kim lost her engagement ring while trying to take a photo of the beautiful diamond ring.  In the process of trying to get the perfect picture, the ring fell into the beach sand below at the water’s edge.   The newly engaged couple as well as several on-lookers searched frantically for the lost ring—with no success.  That’s when Kim decided to search the internet on “how to find a lost ring” and she came across our contact information.

My wife and I arrived at the location over four hours after the ring had initially been lost.  The tide was rising and the wave action had increased a lot in that time.  We knew that with every passing minute, the ring could get buried under the soft sand quickly.

We got right to work going in opposite directions with our detectors staying within the search area the couple thought the ring was lost in.  Not long after our search began, my wife heard a faint / sketchy deep signal on her metal detector.  Finally after three or four attempts to retrieve the target, the ring appeared in her scoop and was quickly back on Kim’s finger.

This is one marriage proposal this couple will never forget and will be talking about for years to come!


Lost Ring Found & Returned: Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, FL

IMG_3438 (1)While having fun at the beach with her son, Nicole decided to try a handstand in the ocean.  When she came out of the water she felt two of the three rings slip off her finger.  After relaying the terrible news to her husband who was at work about her lost rings, it became her mission to find a way to recover what was lost.  Nicole came across The Ring Finders web site.   That’s when I received the call.

Within a few hours, my wife and I arrived at the beach with our metal detectors in hand.  By this time, both Nicole and her husband were waiting for us and had the area to search visually in mind.

With stormy weather looming in the distance and several minutes of searching, I finally got a good signal closer to shore than Nicole had visualized.  The first dig with my scoop produced one ring; followed by the second ring in the next scoop.

A relieved Nicole was ever so happy to have her rings back.  We are so glad Nicole called and we were able to reunite her with the missing rings.
