Lost Wedding Band Blessed by Pope Francis…Found by Ring Finder in Potomac, Maryland

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Jon’s extremely special 10 karat yellow gold classic wedding band that was blessed by Pope Francis.

A beam of happiness shines across the countenance of Jon’s face just minutes after being presented with his beloved wedding band by metal detectorist and member of THE RING FINDERS, Brian Rudolph

Brian Rudolph, Lost Item Recovery Specialist (Land, Water, Sand, Snow, Leaves, Cliffs, Houses & Vehicles) Will Find Your Lost Keepsake! Call ASAP (301) 466-8644!

I received a call from a woman named Julia who contacted me on behalf of her husband Jon. He lost his classic yellow 14 karat gold wedding band while working out at a local Park in Potomac, Maryland. This ring was not just a sentimental piece of property that meant so very much to the couple, but it also had tremendous spiritual meaning to Jon and Julia as well. The band that was placed upon the groom’s finger, had actually been blessed by Pope Francis himself! This special keepsake was extremely unique in every regard!

Just before Jon started doing pull-ups on some play equipment, he responsibly took his ring off and placed it in his shorts pocket for safekeeping. Then, after he finished his reps, Jon went on a jog around a pond that was situated in the middle of the park. He forgot to place his wedding band back on his finger and by the time he got around to the other side of the pond, the ring had fallen out of his pocket somewhere along the path. Though the concerned gentleman searched for the missing jewel for 45 minutes or so, none of his efforts helped to recover the lost band. Jon walked home sad and shared the news with his wife Julia.

Sometime that evening, Julia decided to take to the internet and search for a solution to try to find a way to recover the one-of-a-kind ring. She eventually stumbled upon the elite international directory of metal detectorists called THE RING FINDERS. Before long, I received a call from Julia and I immediately made plans to visit the park where Jon’s “symbol of love” was lost.

With all of the information that Julia had given me, I felt pretty confident that I could attempt the recovery project without having Jon present. In fact, his wife hoped that this would turn out to be kind of a surprise for her distraught husband if I was somehow able to return it back to his finger.

As soon as I reached the play equipment, I took my metal detector out and scanned the entire area. I concluded that the ring was definitely not under any of the wood chips that surrounded the equipment. I then moved onto the path where Jon had jogged around the pond.

Because there was plenty of distance that I would have to metal detect around the body of water, it made the most sense to start from the play equipment and move counterclockwise in the direction that Jon had traveled. Every 20 yards, I detected 5 feet from the right edge of the path over to the grassy lawn area. Then, when I didn’t find the band, I backtracked and scanned 20 yards of grass (5 foot wide swings) heading back in the direction where I started detecting. When I didn’t find anything on the other side of the path, I started searching the next 20 yards of grass on either side of the concrete.

Although the project took quite a bit of time, I am delighted to share that all of my efforts proved to be most successful in the end! After metal detecting approximately 100 yards of grass (moving my coil with 5 foot wide swings back and forth) around the pond, my detector eventually gave me the target signal that I had been yearning to hear and analyze for nearly an hour and a half! In the grass, a few feet from the path, I found the precious wedding band that had been blessed by the Pope and placed upon Jon’s ring finger all those years earlier! I was beyond elated for the couple that would soon be surprised at my successful endeavors!

When I revealed my findings with Jon over by his house, the man couldn’t believe what I was able to return back to him! He truly thought the ring was gone for good! He had such disbelief about the whole matter that he studied his ring extremely carefully just to make sure that he wasn’t being set up for a huge disappointment. Thankfully, Jon realized quite quickly that what seemed to be an impossibility in ever seeing his ring again had actually become a true reality! I give thanks to the Lord for such a fantastic finish!

Lost Engagement And Wedding Ring At An Ottawa Park

  • from Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)

Lost wedding ring in yard recovered! Westfield,New Jersey.

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

While at work in Jersey City I received a call from a woman not too far away over in Westfield asking if I could possibly help find her husbands wedding ring that he had lost the previous weekend in her parents backyard while attending a party? Well since Westfield as basically on my way home down the turnpike I told her I could stop by later today after work. Arriving at the property and getting information as to where he thought it could been lost in the faily large yard I began my grid pattern search with my White’s V3i metal detector. Unfortunately the yard had numerous buried metal drainage grates and pipes which could easily mask the gold ring if I did swing the searchcoil over it. Fortunately I had decided to use a small coil which enabled me to still work the area by required careful listening for that one difference in signals from the detector. After about 45 minutes I heard what I was waiting for and as I looked down I could see the ring in the grass just waiting for me!

I left the ring there and called her out to show me the area again and asked if maybe right there was the area pointing to the ring in the grass. She began laughing with amazement and couldn’t wait to call her husband with the good news at work.Another happy customer!

Lost Ring on Volleyball Court,Plainsboro New Jersey. Recovered by NJ Lost Ring Finder!

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from a guy asking for my help finding his gold ring he had lost while playing volleyball with friends a few days ago. I was able to meet with him a couple hours later at the park and he showed me the court he had been playing on. He had been on both sides of the net so I began my grid pattern search on one with my White’s V3i and 6 x 10″ coil which is perfect for these types of hunts. Having no luck on the first side I moved onto the other and about half way through I got a nice signal in the gold range. I scooped up some sand and there was his ring! He was watching with his family and when I held it up stating I found it they were very happy and grateful for my help thanking me and saying how much the ring had meant to him. Another great recovery!       Recovery # 119


Lost Wedding Ring at Strawbridge Lake Park Moorestown,NJ Found!

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from friend that I metal detect with regularly asking for some help recovering a woman’s wedding ring. A US Air Force friend of his and his wife were at a local park taking photos in the fall leaves with their baby and whiles tossing some leaves into the air her wedding ring flew off! Although they knew the ring was within a general area it was impossible to locate by eye among the leaves and grass. The following day (Veterans Day) we arrived at the park with our White’s V3i metal detectors and marked out an area where we believed the ring would be laying. After just a few minutes of searching I received a nice solid signal and as I brushed the leaves away I could see the ring laying on the ground! I casually said to Frank “That was easy enough” and he responded you got it already? Yep! He was excited to call his buddy with the great news and I was happy to have been able to help these respected military veterans out. Another great day and recovery.     Recovery#106

Lost Ring at Smith Farm Fields in Northampton, MA… Found!

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

Mrs. Volberg contacted me to discuss a ring she lost while walking her dog after a large snowstorm in Northampton, Massachusetts. The last memory of her lost ring was earlier that morning, just before she put on her gloves to go to Smith Farm Fields.

We began searching several places she stopped to let her dog off-leash. In one place, in particular, she remembers the dog getting startled due to a cross-country skier. She remembers removing her gloves during the commotion – glove removal is a common way to lose a ring in the snow. As we searched, a man stopped and asked what we were looking for with a metal detector. When we told him about the lost ring and the potential search areas, he revealed that he found a woman’s 14k gold ring in the middle of the path last weekend! The location and time frame lined up perfectly. Mr. Baldwin not only found her ring in the snow, but he went a step further and verified ownership by requiring Mrs. Volberg to identify the engraving on the inside of the ring. However, she had a moment of doubt when she recalled no engraving inside the lost gold band. What are the chances that Mr. Baldwin picked up this lost ring and happened to be at Smith Farm Fields during the same day and time I was searching for Mrs. Volberg’s lost ring! Thank you, Mr. Baldwin, for your honesty and caring personality!

Mrs. Volberg & Mr. Baldwin
