I received the following email today from a previous client regarding her lost wedding rings.

 

Hey John,

You probably don’t remember me, but my husband contacted you last October about wedding rings that were lost in my home. I couldn’t remember taking them off, thought I remembered going to bed with them and then didn’t have them the next morning. I even had my cat x rayed to make sure that he didn’t swallow it!!  You very graciously came to our home in Meyerland and spent hours looking for it.  You searched every cabinet in my kitchen and used your metal detectors inside and outside of the house.  Today, as I was packing for an upcoming family vacation, I found them in one of my drawers that was overstuffed with clothes!  I just thought that I would let you know, and wanted to thank you again for your help.

Sincerely,
Angie and Jeff

I do remember the call ,and I remember Angie’s disappointment when we were not able to find her rings.

Nice going Angie.

Memorial Day

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the last Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service

I was able to personally thank a few soldiers today, and I wanted to extend the “THANK YOU” to those in The Ring Finders directory who have served.

Stay Safe

 

Respectfully,

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

Lost 1958 Texas A&M Class Ring  Seabrook, Texas (Recovered)

Received the following email from Devin on 04/30/2014

I just threw my ring in the water on accident.  I know exactly where it dropped but it’s 5 ft down and I have no way of getting it.  This was my grandfathers ring from 1958.  Let me know ASAP

Follow-up information from Devin

Location: Outriggers Restaurant in Seabrook Texas

About 17 ft deep.  Sticky bottom, couple of inches of mud but very dense mud.  Ring shouldn’t of sunk in mud immediately.  Lots of current and boat traffic.  Sooner the better

There is a lot of boat traffic there because of the launch, this may be a safety barrier, thoughts?

Devin sent the following photos of the dock at the Outriggers Restaurant.

I had to postpone Devin’s search until today, I just couldn’t get away any sooner for this type of job.  Devin was concerned about the delay, and I think he felt it might affect the possibilities of recovering his ring. I was very confident the ring was not going anywhere, I just needed Devin to be sure he knew the right location.

Devin and I met at the Outriggers Restaurant this morning and we discussed how the ring was lost. Devin explained he had been on the upper deck of the restaurant when he tossed some ice over the railing, He said his grandfathers ring flew right off his finger, landed and skidded across the lower floating dock and then dropped off  into the abyss.

Devin said the ring was his grandfathers Texas A&M Class Ring from 1958.

Devin and I transferred all the gear out to the dock, and then discussed how the dive would go,  and what his responsibilities would be topside.

Nearly zero visibility, water temp somewhere around 70, light boat traffic, and tons and tons of debris (spikes, bolts, nails, fishing hooks, and yes plenty of beer tops) on the bottom.

Had built a spot marker dive pole for this job, and Devin held it in position topside as a I worked a three-foot radius around it on the bottom. Had to work it inch by inch, I used a hand held Vibra-Tector 730, their was simply to much debris to try and manage the Excalibur.

About 20 minutes in, and after crawling around on the bottom with the VibraTector 730, and weeding through handful after handful of junk, I got a hold of something from 1958.

The pictures tell the rest of the story.

Lost Class Ring Houston, Texas (Recovered)

Lost Class Ring Houston, Texas (Recovered)

Received a call yesterday from Domingo who said he had lost his class ring 5 days ago while planting and transplanting plants in his backyard. Domingo said after spending several days searching for the ring with no success, he located “The Ring Finders” online.

I made the trip over to Domingo’s this morning, Domingo showed me his backyard and the possible areas where he thought the ring may have come off his finger. You can see from the pictures, Domingo was in the process of a backyard transformation with several areas needing to be searched.

Domingo mentioned something about coffee and went back into the house leaving me to conduct the search for his ring. I eliminated one of the flowers beds pretty quickly and moved on to the next flower bed near the center of the back yard. I was on about the forth swing in that flower bed when I hit a pretty good signal.

I knocked on Domingo’s back door and asked him to come on out back and show me the areas again needing to be searched. As Domingo was pointing out the areas again, I held out his class ring, Domingo was pleasantly surprised.

Domingo’s picture say’s the rest.

Lost Ring Phone Support 🙂

Hi John,

My name is Alvaro ******** and I misplaced my aggie ring over the weekend at home.  Normally I place my ring on top of the family dresser, and vaguely remember doing so.  However, we have not been able to find it over the weekend.  Are you able to assist with the search for this ring?  It is likely inside the house in a drawer or crack(I think).  We live in the Heights in a Bungalow.  If you can assist us, please let me know how much you would charge for your services.  Do you work off contingencies?

Thank you

Alvaro *********

Alvaro,

Thank you for contacting me, when I hear about these type of losses, I often recommend waiting for up to 72 hours, as the rings in these situations tend to show up on their own.

If that time has passed, and the ring is still missing from your home, you have to ask yourself these real questions.

1. Who has had access to the ring since you last remember seeing it. This list would include friends, family, service persons, etc?

2. Have you checked all the obvious places like your pockets, laundry basket, behind dressers, beds, etc?

3. Check the vacuum cleaner bag

4. Could the ring have bypassed any drain guard in any sink? If yes, you need to check the drain pipe traps.

MOST of my expertise in locating missing items (rings) is by utilizing the latest technology in metal detecting equipment.  This work is traditional done in an outdoor environment.  I have assisted people on these types of jobs before, sometimes a clean set of eyes can be a factor, but we need to focus on the fact that your ring did not disappear on its own.

Professionally, I often tell people to sit down and write out their daily activities of the day in question. This act often creates a recall we might not have had just thinking about the particular day or incident.

Let me know.

Hi John,

Thanks for the encouraging words; I took your advice and kept alert for it. Alas, my ring was where I least expected it;  My closet.

Happy holidays

Great News and Happy Holidays

I received a call today from Ryan and Jess regarding Ryan’s lost wedding ring.

Ryan and Jess reported Ryan was playing football in the front yard with family when

his ring flew off of his finger.

Ryan mentioned his wife Jess was not happy :), but after speaking to her she

insisted Ryan would be sleeping in-doors tonight regardless of the out-come.

Ryan reported one of his family members had located www.theringfinders.com after

his failed attempts at finding his ring.

I think you can tell from the smiles, today was a good day

I was happy very happy for Ryan and Jess, you could see the relief and happiness

in both of them when the ring was recovered.

Lost Texas A&M Class Ring Woodlands, Texas (Recovered)

  • from Sugar Land (Texas, United States)

12/04/2013

Hi John,

I work for The Woodlands Township in The Woodlands and I supervise the
boathouse next to the woodlands mall. Today at work, my worst nightmare
happened. I went to shake someone’s hand and they pulled my ring off and it
bounced off the dock into the lake. It is about 4.5 to 5 ft deep where it fell
in and it is in probably a 5 by 5 ft area next to the dock.

I found you online at www.theringfinders.com when I was looking for metal

detector rentals. Is there ANY way you can help me with this. My ring is/was easily

my most prized possession.

Please, if you get a chance I would love to hear back from you with any help
you might be able to offer me.

Thanks in advance,

Kyle

I met Kyle this morning at the Woodlands Boat House and  Kyle gave me a first hand

account of how the ring was lost and where he believed it landed in the water.

The job appeared easy from the top side, I was thinking, I’ll jump in this tropical warm

blue water, grab the ring and job complete.

Well the water wasn’t tropical or warm and the bottom of the dock was concrete with

apparently a lot of re-enforced re-bar. I found the ring, lots of luck on this job. I was

thinking to myself, Kyle you just witnessed an early Christmas Miracle 🙂

I was really happy for him, It was clear from the beginning the Ring was very important to him.

Wedding Ring Recovered Northwest-Houston, Texas

 

Received a call, regarding a lost wedding ring in the backyard of a residence in Northwest Houston.

The caller Allen was wanting to check on my availability in the event he could not find his ring.

Allen reported he had placed his ring on his cellphone in his backyard, and later when he grabbed his phone the ring flew into the grass.

Allen said he was going to continue trying to find the ring himself, and was going to borrow a Metal Detector from a neighbor.

Allen said he would call ne tomorrow if he was unsuccessful at finding his ring.

I am not sure if Allen’s wife Nikki made him sleep outside that night, but he seemed pretty happy to see me the next day 🙂

Allen had to leave for work upon my arrival, but you can see from the smile on Nikki’s face it was a good day.
