I received a call from a woman asking if I could help find her husbands wedding ring in their garden? He had been working in the yard for the past few days and noticed that his gold wedding ring of 58 years was no longer on his finger and he was pretty upset about the loss. I drove up the following day meeting the couple on their lawn and we walked around to the backyard where there were multiple boxed in 10 x 20 gardens and large compost pile behind the garage. Although it was a nice backyard I felt it wasn’t going to be an easy hunt with all the growth and area size.I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector with a small 4 x 6″ search coil to get in between the flowers and plants. He felt the most likely area was the compost pile so that’s where I started but after a half hours search I had no luck? Next we moved onto the garden boxes one at a time and still no luck. Finally I started searching the paths between the boxes and leading to the compost pile when I got a good hit from my detector. Looking down I brushed some weeds aside and there was is ring! It took a while and I could tell they were losing hope but when I said I found it,the smiles came right to there faces! Another happy customer! Another great day! Recovery #118
John stood in his Dorchester garden when along came his pet Husky dog seeking attention. He gave the dog a firm pat and felt his ring leave his finger landing somewhere in the garden. After spending many hours searching high and low he called me at the Ring Finders.
I noticed straight away the the ring could not have traveled too far for the fact there was a wire fence bordering the garden. This was both a help and a hindrance as any detectorist knows metal fences and detectors dont mix!
After searching for an hour I resorted to tackling the undergrowth by the wire fence on my hands and knees using just my hand held probe. At the base of the fence, under leaves out of reach of any coil there it was.
John was very relieved to get it back and made a kind donation to the Margret Green Animal Charity.
A Mr Jason Ganner of Bournemouth lost his precious signet ring one day whilst planting flowers in his garden. He had lost the ring many weeks before and tried several attempts to recover it himself without a detector. The ring carried great sentimental value and had been destined like his other rings to be divided between his children one day. After reading a recent newspaper story of one of my Ringfinders.com recoveries he called me and in the presence of BBC TV South Today… we found it!!
Relieved and emotional, Mr Ganner made a very kind donation to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. To view the filming footage follow this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ib-nsvPiC1M
