Ring lost in Arvada’s Ralston Central Park returned

from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Monday afternoon I listened to a message on our answering machine from Johanna stating that she had just lost her engagement ring in a park. I called her back but had to leave a message as she did not answer. Today, Tuesday, I called her back again and this time she answered. Johanna stated that both her and her mother in law had rented metal detectors and searched the park for a couple of hours and they did not find the ring. She then stated that she had given up hope on getting her 3 carat black diamond set in white gold ring back. I asked her if she would like me to give the search a try. She was a bit hesitant but eventually agreed to my searching for ring.

About an hour and a half later I was at the park and Johanna arrived a few minutes later. She showed me the areas she had spent some time at and explained what was happening when her ring went missing. Then her and a few friends went to grab some lunch leaving me to do the search. Before she had made it to the restaurant I had recovered her ring, it was in an area that was heavy with pull tabs and other trash. I sent Johanna a text picture of her ring, I can not put on this site her reaction but let’s just say she was very happy and surprised that I had found it.

I made my way to the restaurant that Johanna and her friends were at to return her ring. The smile on her face when I gave her ring back was amazing.

Platinum ring lost while doing yard work returned, Denver Colorado

from Denver (Colorado, United States)

Easter Sunday morning Ben was preparing his backyard for the upcoming Sunday dinner and gathering. Games were played that afternoon and plenty of quality family time was had in the back yard. Soon after the festivities ben noticed that his platinum wedding band was missing. He and his wife Anna spent time searching the back yard visually but they had no luck finding his ring. Ben then borrowed a metal detector from a friend and searched the yard, once again luck was not with them. Anna went to her LinkIn account to get rid of some of her notifications and she noticed a notice from my profile of a work anniversary since we had worked together years ago. She contacted me stating their situation, we quickly formed a plan for me to search their yard as I was leaving on vacation in a couple of days.

When I arrived Ben showed me around the yard and explained what had happened the morning and early afternoon of his rings disappearance. I grabbed a few detectors from my truck and began my search pattern. On my first pass of the yard I heard a good signal from my metal detector, I looked down and there was the shinny outline of a ring hidden amongst the grass. I placed a screwdriver with its tip over the ring and went to get Ben. When I knocked on the door Ben was a bit taken aback by my quick return to the house. I told him to look at the blade end of the screw driver, it took him several seconds to see his ring laying in the grass. He was very happy to get his ring back and Anna was in tears. They had had a baby just six days prior so her emotions were running pretty high.

Upon Nate’s arrival he showed me the location he was at when his ring went missing. After just a few minutes of searching, Nate had his ring back.

Lost men’s 14k wedding band in Long Branch NJ Found and returned

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

After a 12hr day at work I’m home for maybe an hour when i get a message from Fellow Ring Finder Edward Cropski asking me if i’m near long branch as he just got a call from a guy out with his family that just lost his 14k white gold wedding band in the wet sand while playing with his son, Despite his wife telling him to give her his ring so he wouldn’t lose it. He felt it was safer with him. Which proved to be wrong… As him and his son were on the slope playing he happened to feel his ring slip off his finger. As he was about to dive for it a wave came in and just like that, The ring was gone. They found The ring finders site doing a search and quickly contacted Ed who then relayed it to me. But he lost it during the worst time.. 2 hrs after low tide and i got there another 45mins later. By then the tide was up 2 feet and the surf was rough with 3-4ft waves breaking on the beach. I tried to find it for a few hrs while being pounded mercilessly by the waves coming in to no avail… I had to give up the hunt and wait for better conditions. After sleeping for only 3hrs i was up at 1am the next day and out the door by 1:45 with the ctx now mounted with my 17″ coil to try again before work.. I got there around 2:30am and started to grid from the top of the slope and followed the tide out. I was finding stained quarters,nickles and 2 pieces of junk jewelry.. I knew i had pretty good odds at finding it but after searching for 2-1/2 hrs i was beginning to have some doubts as i finished up the area i laid out. I decided to expand the search area 10ft more on both sides of where i had already been. I got down to the wash and get a two-tone iffy signal about 12″ down, The numbers were all over the place. I decided i was digging everything and even though i thought it may be junk i went for it. But every scoop or two i took the now incoming tide filled the hole right back in again.. So now i was taking 3 scoops at a time between waves. The signal was fading,sinking… It even started to tone iron and then it disappeared. I had to dig even more to bring it back up again. Finally it was getting Louder. after 20+mins of chasing this signal one more scoop got it out. Kicked the sand with my foot and there it was!! Him and his family drove all the way down here tonight from Rutherford to reclaim it and gave me a very nice reward for finding it. They were in shock and couldn’t believe i had found it! A very happy customer! What a great experience it was! Now it’s time for some sleep…

How to Find a Lost Ring at the Beach. . . Sanibel Island, FL

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

After discovering the Ring Finder website, Gerard and his wife Kim contacted me about looking for his wedding ring that slipped off his finger into the Gulf waters off Sanibel Island near the lighthouse.   Gerard explained that the ring was very important and sentimental to him and his family.  So after some phone conversations and text messages were exchanged, my wife and I came up with a plan to search for his ring.

Since neither Gerard or Kim would be at the location the day we looked for it, I asked Gerard to provide a map/diagram of the area he thought he lost it.  Equipped with the map and our Minelab Excalibur metal detectors and scoops, we began our search.

The two of us searched for over over 2  1/2 hours before I finally saw Gerard’s ring in my scoop.  As soon as we returned to the vehicle, we texted a picture of the found ring for Gerard and his family to see.

Arrangements were then made to meet an ecstatic Gerard and his daughter the next evening and return the ring.

Thank you for contacting us through The Ring Finder metal detecting service website–brings us great joy to reunite people with their lost items.  Thank you for the generous reward as well.
