Dec.23 was our Christmas day with our Grandson and we were having a spectacular day playing with all the toys and watching how excited this little 4 1/2 year old was, it really really melted our hearts! Around 1 PM I received a phone call from a young lady who said that she needed my help finding a lost diamond engagement ring in the snow.
She went on to tell me that they were taking pictures of her engagement ring in the park and it fell into the snow and they couldn’t find it. Her fiancé bought a metal detector and search for approximately 3 hours with no luck. She went online and found TheRingFinders.com and contacted me to see if I was able to help.
I was already booked to go to Pemberton for a search but called and postponed that search till the next day…Good thing I did, because they found their ring in the house and not the yard were they thought they lost the ring.(saved me 6 hours of drive time there and back) I asked my grandson if it was okay that papa could go out and help find a lost ring for a young lady, he said it’s okay Papa you go find the ring.( He wanted to stay home and play with all his toys) I jumped in my car and in 40 minutes I had arrived and met the young lady in the parking lot and we went for 10 minute walk through a beautiful forest to where they had lost the ring.
I got to the location where I met her fiancé and we discuss the search, it took about 20 minutes and I found a beautiful diamond ring!
The young lady went back to her car to get something so we packed up and headed towards the car, we met her halfway in the trail. I had asked her fiancé if we could pretend we didn’t find the ring and that we were going back to my car to get batteries for my metal detector.
Then we surprised her with the ring! She was so relieved! I have the greatest job in the world I get to make people smile.

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

Snow eats rings, cellphones & keys…We don’t get much snow anymore here in Vancouver, but this year we can’t get rid of it…That being said the calls are coming in for help and today I had a search for lost keys in Mission BC & a search for a lost wedding band in New Westminster, BC.
The drive to Mission was over an hour and I searched the areas that the young man show me for an hour but no keys…After discussing the search areas he went back and found his keys in his garage. It happens a lot when we close off the area where people think they may have lost their item, when its not found it makes them look in other places they may not have looked before, this time it worked!
Just when I got back home I received another call from a young man who said he thought he may have lost his ring in the backyard where he was barbecuing the night before. We discussed the search and arranged for me to go there and meet his wife and look for the ring.
We met and I started the search and within minutes I found his white gold ring. I love my job and when I find what I’m looking for it makes me very happy!

All Ring Finders Stories that end with a picture of the owner holding their ring is a happy ending. However for Ross the happy ending he was having in his picture was caused by his own ring find recovery. This ring search took all of 20 minutes because after I struck out looking around the car where Ross was sweeping snow off windows , I asked Ross to move the vehicle. As he moved the car I kept on searching around the snow covered car lot. Ross was walking back toward me telling me about what happened to the ring and then stopped and looked down. In a very small clump of snow and ice he saw the golden and silver rim of his lost ring. My hats off to you Ross, and I am truly glad you have your ring back.
I received a call from Tyler requesting my service this afternoon. He told me his ring flew off his finger while he was brushing the snow off his truck with his bare hand in a parking lot and he was very distraught. Today we received 4 inches of wet heavy snow and it was very important that the ring be found before the snow removal crew came to clean the snow up.
I told Tyler I would be down in half hour to look for it, he showed me roughly the area where his truck was parked, and it took me about 15 minutes to return his ring back on his finger.
I received a message on my Facebook page N.J. Lost Ring Finder from Samantha asking if I possibly help find her wedding ring she had lost in the snow? She stated that while throwing the dogs ball in her backyard she felt the ring fly off her finger and although she and her husband had searched for it even after purchasing a metal detector the ring was nowhere to be found. Searching the internet she came across my Facebook page and decided ask for my help as she was missing her cherished wedding ring more and more as the days went by as she had only been married a year. We agreed to meet that weekend and give it a try! Arriving at her house I was greeted by Samantha & Clint and we entered the backyard where there was still some snow covering the area but nothing like the 2 feet of it when the ring was lost the week before. I asked Samantha to reenact how she threw the ball that day and when she did I noticed that although the ball went in a forward direction the motion of her left hand was actually more to the left. I searched the cleared area where the ball landed first with no success except for a few pieces of foil and a nickel and told her I believe it’s in the area to the left where the snow covered patio furniture was stored. We moved the furniture onto the lawn area and I began my search and with minutes I received the signal I was looking for from my White’s V3i metal detector . Scraping away the snow I could see her beautiful diamond ring shinning through the snow. I turned to Samantha with my hand out to hers and handed her the ring. She immediately began crying with tears of joy and thanking me so much! What an awesome site it was to see her and her husband smiling again as she put the ring back on her finger. Another great day! Another great recovery!
The call I received was typical, the exchange of information was made. I headed to the parking where the ring was lost. However the person that was surprised on this ring hunt was not only the lady who lost the her ring but rather the Ring Finder himself. I’ll let the pictures tell you the details and add that she found this ring on the trip over to the parking lot where I was waiting. So this is why I say never give up even after a few rounds of looking for the item.
I got a text late one night from a young man named Daniel. He had been playing ultimate Frisbee with some friends in Provo, and had taken his white gold wedding ring off for the game. He had put it in his coat pocket and left the coat on the sidelines. After the game, he put his coat back on and spent a few more minutes playing Frisbee. Later that night, he found that the ring was no longer in his pocket, so he searched and found me on TheRingFinders.com
He was on his way out of town, so we weren’t able to get together for a few days. I didn’t want to wait too long and risk someone else finding the ring and keeping it, so he emailed me a Google Maps image of the field with a couple of possible locations marked. I got up early the next morning and started metal detecting on the field before 4:00 am. I started early because organized football and ultimate games start at 8:00 am or so, and I didn’t want to interfere with them. Daniel’s hunch about where he may have lost the ring was a good one. I found the ring after about 45 minutes of searching.
I met him for the first time tonight when he and his wife came to my home to retrieve his ring. They were very happy to have that ring back, and I was very happy to be able to help them!
On 2/17/15, I drove out to Green Island New York to help Allie find her Wedding and Engagement ring, that was soldered together. During a fight with her husband the previous week, Allie removed her ring in spite and launched it into the backyard. In the aftermath she realized how foolish she was and began to search for the set in 18 inches of snow. After many searches were made using different techniques including pouring hot water to melt the snow she felt defeated. The ring set was insured for many thousands of dollars but did not cover loss. During a Google search of how to find a lost ring Allie stumbled across theringfinders.com directory and immediately sends me a urgent email. The next day in an hours time she is wearing her lovely ring set again. I documented the entire recovery and called the local press, two days later the Times Union published the article… See video and article

Lost ring recovery in Green Island NY: https://youtu.be/yRcm5iVSmZA
Having been frozen out of the ocean by cold temperatures, high winds, and blizzards, I welcomed the challenge to find a lost engagement ring.
When I arrived at the Preschool location, I was intimidated by the seven foot high piles of snow and did not know exactly where to start my search. I was about an hour early. So I started the search correcting my equipment for the railings and re-bar in the walkways and concrete benches. The first hour yielded only one L.L.Bean button and a few pieces of tinfoil.
The school janitor came out to see what I was doing. It was good luck for me as he had searched for the ring two days previously. When he searched, there was two inches less snow that had fallen and been removed from the walkways. He told me where the wedding band was found, about ten feet from were I was searching at the time.
Lesley showed up right on time and told the same story so I knew I was in the correct area. After moving what felt like a ton of snow and detecting each shovel full I started detecting in harder to reach area and moving more snow. While reaching over a railing, I was shoveling snow from a five foot high snow pile that was between two pillars only 10 inched apart, an area too small to swing my detector.
I was detecting the third pile of removed snow and heard my detector sing out the sweet note of gold. I moved the pile a bit and saw the ring with its diamond sparking amongst the frozen ice crystals.
The rest is history: My first 2015 Ring Return search ended with Smiles and hugs all around and a Thank You card that I will cherish for years to come.
