I received a call from Andrew asking for my help to find his wedding ring that was lost in his backyard. Unfortunately his dog Gunner had gotten sprayed by a skunk and while bathing him in the yard his wedding ring had fallen off.
Arriving onsite and going over the events that lead up to the loss and meeting Gunner I was confident that if the ring was there I would find it as it was a nice short cut lawn and not too big of an area even though the loss had happened 2 weeks ago.
I setup my White’s V3i metal detector and Andrew showed me an area about halfway across the yard where the gate was that he felt was the stopping point at which he was chasing the dog around that day. I started searching area around the hose and most likely spot but no ring. Further into the a few signals but again no ring? I started to get worried as I approached the area of the gate and just as I passed the gate I got a good solid signal,pulled back some grass and there was Andrew”s wedding! Andrew and his neighbor were amazed as I held up the ring saying I got it! He was very happy to have his ring back on his finger and Gunner was now out of the dog house lol! Another happy customer!

A woman recently contacted me to discuss a ring she lost while playing with her dog in Westerly, RI. The last memory of her lost ring was from Father’s Day earlier in the week.
Once I arrived, we began walking around the yard discussing the number of places she could have lost the ring while playing fetch and bathing her dog. The ring search began at the hose where she bathed the family dog. Just as I finished searching the grassy area where the dog was getting bathed, the owner of the ring asked me to check the bushes where the hose connected to the house. An immediate signal rang through the metal detector just under one of the bushes. I brushed aside a few wood chips and there it was! Another lost ring handed down from generation to generation was found and reunited with its owner!

On Friday the 4th I received a frantic 2am text from Stefan who lost his gold and diamond wedding ring on the Barry University campus after a soccer practice. I spoke to him at 4 and we met at first light.
Stefan had seen it fly off his finger on Thursday evening while walking down a pathway but it disappeared into the bushes and he was unable to locate it. He was truly panicked for he stays on campus during the week but was going home to see his wife that night and could chance doing so without his ring on his finger.
He showed me the area where he lost it and I proceeded to start searching.
Within a few minutes, and with the help of my Garrett pinpointer, I found it in the mulch below the bushes. Needless to say, he was very happy and only now would he share the story about the lost ring with his wife.
Another couple saved from heartbreak thanks to The Ring Finders!
I will search land or sea(including scuba dive) to help you get reunited with your lost treasure and heal your heartbreak.
I received a call from a gentleman (Tony) who had lost his wedding band. He stated that he lost it in his yard some 5 years ago when he was spreading fertilizer on the lawn. It was a 14K gold band with some diamonds around it. Tony had given up on finding his ring as he had looked and looked for it himself when he lost it and in fact had borrowed a friends metal detector to look for it. He figured it was long gone, but he decided call me and give it one more try.
We met and he gave me all the facts and then we went to his house and started the search. I could see that Tony did not have much faith that I would find the ring, but we pressed on. He know the general area where he lost the ring so that cut down on the search area. Now, because rings sound like pull tabs, aluminum cans, copper wire, etc., (all non-furious metals) we will dig a lot of junk sometimes. The first “target” turned out to be a aluminum can buried in his yard. Then a quarter, then a piece of aluminum foil. The forth target sounded good and I stated that this might be his ring, but also it might be a pull tab off a soda can. We dug a “plug”, flopped it out onto the ground and I scanned the hole and the pug. The target was in the plug so I took out my pin-pointer and it told me that the target was just a few inches under the grass, and right in the middle of the plug. We took the shovel and cut the pug in half and I opened up the plug and THERE IT WAS. Tony’s jaw dropped and he said “No – No, I don’t believe it. There it is” I removed the ring from the plug and gave it to Tony. I think you can see the thrill, the disbelief, and the happiness on his face in the above picture.
He put the ring on his finger and took off to get his cell phone to call his wife. He took a picture of the ring on his finger and sent it off to her. I picked up my gear and went back to my car and just as I got there, Tony’s phone was ringing and his wife was on the phone. Well now I had TWO happy customers.
Tony and myself said our goodbyes, and he gave me a very nice “finders fee”. Thank you very much Tony
This points out something that everyone who losses a valuable should do. If it is lost on public property, (beach, park, sidewalk, etc.), GET IN TOUCH WITH SOMEONE ASAP, as the longer you wait the better chance that someone else finds you valuable. BUT don’t give up on anything lost on private property. All of us in the “Ring Finders” have been successful finding valuables that have been lost for a LONG time.
On Saturday I received a call from Mr. Sal about looking for a lost ring. Apparently, after taking down his Christmas decorations, he noticed that his white gold ring was no longer on his little finger. He said he usually only wears it when they go out and on special occasions, but figured he could take down the decorations and just leave it on because they had plans to go out later that evening. As he was finishing putting things away he realized his ring was missing. (This white gold ring with a blue sapphire was given to Sal as a graduation gift from his parents over 60 years ago and it held allot of sentimental value in his heart and mind.) So Sal began looking through the decorations thinking maybe it dropped into one of the bags or boxes. Then he went outside to check the yard and grass and even the stone areas, thinking it could have dropped off there. But NOTHING!
Sal then began checking around where he could rent a metal detector and finally found a store. So he called and talked to one of the sales representatives, who informed Sal that this particular store was up in Boston, MA. and it would be quite expensive to ship a metal detector down to Florida and all. The sales rep. then told Sal about a group called Theringfinders that helps people find their lost rings and surely there would be someone in the Central Florida area that could help him out. And that’s how Sal found me!
I arranged to meet Mr. Sal on Sunday at his home and he showed me the areas where he took down his decorations. It was a relatively small area and it took only 15 minutes or so to cover the most likely spots with my DFX–but I was unable to find his ring. Mr. Sal then mentioned that he had particular trouble around the metal light post getting the string of lights untangled. So I decided to check the base of the post again. This time I got a faint signal on the street side and dropped to my knees and pulled out my trusty Garrett pin pointer–(Thank you Chris!!). And sure enough, there under the thick grass was Sal’s beautiful ring. I stuck the ring on my finger and held it up for Sal to see and the look on his face was priceless!!
Thank you Sal for calling me and for the generous reward! Lost something…Call ASAP!

I received a text from a girl named Linda (on Monday 11-23-15) while I was hunting. She asked me if I could help find her ring. She had lost her ring she received for her 15th birthday while walking. It had been two weeks since she had lost it while walking. It was Saturday, I told her I will be back in town Sunday and I could come Monday after work. She said okay. I received another text, a family member went into the hospital and the ring had to wait. (When things settled down I texted Linda and we set up a day. She said sure but it’s probably gone. It’s been a month I said no we are not giving up.) I finally was able to search for her ring two weeks after the initial call. I made the 45 minute drive from broken arrow. When I got there her brother met me, he took me two houses down from their’s. He showed me the area the size of a house door. I was have way thru the area when I got a great signal, I bent down with my whites TRX pinpointer and guess what it was just below the grass level. I asked, her brother if this was her ring he smiled and said yes. I started to call Linda as she was out of town he said wait. He wanted to surprise her I said Kool. A smile is worth it all when something is found that was once lost.Thanks Linda and Guillermo…..
I received a call from Karen asking if I could come out to find her husbands wedding ring he lost while doing yard work ? She stated that they had just been married the previous weekend and when Joe came in the house after doing some yard work she noticed he wasn’t wearing his ring and he hadn’t noticed it had fallen off. As the days passed she had seen how upset he was and they started thinking about buying or renting a metal detector and came across my ring finders recovery service in the area on the internet. I assured them that if the ring was on the property I could find it and we agreed to do the search the following day after work. Arriving at their house Joe showed me the areas he had been working in and also had some bags of grass and debris which I would also search. Covering a section of the backyard and dumping and searching the bags and still no ring so I decided I would move out front to continue the search. While walking to the gate I continued swinging my White’s V3i metal detector and as I passed a storage shed I received a nice solid gold signal in the grass at a shallow depth. As I moved the grass aside Joe’s 1 week old ring glimmered in the sun! The whole time during the search Karen & Joe had been watching for the magical moment and just as Joe had gone in the house for a moment I found it and held it up for Karen to see. Her face lit up with happiness and as she took a deep breath I handed her the ring and called joe outside stating I found it! As Joe walked out his first words to me were “Your a miracle worker” and shook my hand. He then asked where it was and when I showed him he was surprised how it got there. What an awesome feeling it was to reunite this ring with these newlyweds and see the smiles on their faces! Another great day! Another great recovery!
Thousands of people across this great land drop things every day in their yards! Some of those things are found and many are never recovered. People often move to another house, sometimes across town and other times to another state. And yet those lost items remain hidden in the ground waiting for someone else to find them.
Nancy had lost a very special ring in her front yard months earlier and now was in the process of moving out. The very thought of never seeing her precious family heirloom again drove her to search for someone who could help her find this unique platinum and diamond ring that was handed down from her great grand mother.
As I listened to Nancy’s story I figured the ring should be fairly easy to find, so we set up a time to meet and do a thorough search. Nancy showed me the area of the yard where the ring was lost and as soon as I started searching my detector began giving off all sorts of noise. I tried two other search modes and still there was lots of static and interferrence of some kind. I finally switched to the Prospecting mode and in 5 minutes I got a sweet low signal and there 3 inches under the grass was Nancy’s beautiful ring!
Do you know where you have lost something a long time ago or maybe even recently? I am here to help!

Back at the beginning of the year she was having fun with a snow ball fight in her back yard. During the throwing and tossing of snowballs her wedding ring became missing. She thought that she lost the ring while she was taking off her gloves to clean her glasses. She and friends looked throughout the yard without any luck. Then she found myself though TheRingFinder.com website and was happy that someone was in the area and still finding rings for others. After searching the area, there was the ring tuck down under the grass. She was very happy to have the ring back.
