Lost Gold Wedding Band Recovered In Pasadena, Maryland!

  • from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)

It’s been a while since I’ve been contacted by someone in distress after losing something precious to them. That changed on Friday, May 7th when I received a call from Tim. He was out digging a trench to run electric to his shed when he realized his wedding band was missing. Here is how things went down in Tim’s own words.

“It was a Friday evening when I realized I lost my wedding band while digging a trench in my backyard earlier in the day.  My first thought was to rush out and buy a metal detector.  I did some quick research and realized  I had no experience. I would be lucky to find anything. After doing some more internet searches, I found Ring Finders.  At 9 o’clock at night I sent a text to Jim Wagner.  Little did I know he was close by.  He answered me right away and committed to showing up at my house at 7:30 the next morning.  He told me that if the ring was outside, he would find it.  True to his word, Jim was at my house at 7:30 with a smile and full of understanding. He started at one end of the trench and worked toward the other end while I nervously watched. He found my ring within 15 minutes.  Jim is a talented individual and it was a pleasure meeting him. I can’t thank him enough.”

Lost Wedding Ring Recovered in Ellicott City, Maryland!

  • from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)

I received a call from Nick a week or so ago telling me he lost his wedding band while coaching his sons baseball team. He went on to say that the loss occurred a week or so prior, but he just found out about my service that day. I mentioned to him that I was leaving for a weeks vacation in two days, but if he could meet me the next day I could make that happen. He agreed and we met the next day. Upon my arrival, Nick gave me a detailed recollection of where he walked and where he spent the majority of the time that day. I immediately began my search and about 20 minutes into it…….

…..this was exactly how it was found. There was little chance of “eyeballing” it considering the way it was lying under the grass and how much area had to be searched. Before we began the search that day, Nick said, “I know there is very little chance of finding it now”. I am so glad we proved him wrong!

Although time plays a critical role in recovering lost rings/jewelry, don’t give up hope because a week, month or even YEARS have past. My oldest recovery was lost 9 years prior! With that said, the two biggest factors in a successful recovery are recollection of where you were and what you were doing when you feel you lost the item and time. The sooner you contact me the better!


Lost Men’s Wedding Band Recovered in Ellicott City, Maryland!

  • from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)

Last week I received a email from Stephanie stating that her husband Thomas lost his wedding band while recently doing some yard work. We then made plans to meet up the next day to try and locate the ring.

Luckily Thomas had a good idea of exactly where he was in the yard when he believed his wedding band came off. When I arrived leaves were everywhere despite only 2 days had past since he lost it. Thomas directed me to three areas of the yard that he felt were strong possibilities of where the ring might be. I then put my metal detector to work and about 10 minutes later while searching the second possible area, I found this under some leaves…..

I immediately called Thomas over asking him, “Is this yours?” knowing quite well I just recovered his missing wedding band!

Success happened for two main reasons. Stephanie and Thomas quickly contacted me and Thomas took good mental notes of where he was and what he was doing when he suspected the ring came off. By doing so he made my job a lot easier. It is great to see the ring is back where it belongs!

Lost Wedding Ring Recovered! Fort Meade, Maryland!

  • from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)

This past Sunday I found myself back on the base at Fort Meade to look for a lost wedding ring. I’m starting to think that the late Civil War General George Meade might have a fondness for rings as this makes my 3rd time on the base to help someone out! Here is Nichole and her story…….

My husband lost his wedding band during PT when they were playing football. We tried searching for the ring on the field, but couldn’t find it. We were convinced it would be lost for good until we came upon Ring Finders. We decided to hire Jim because he has rescued other lost rings from Fort Meade and his ratings are phenomenal. We emailed him the day after the ring was lost, and he met us the next day to help us find it. Jim found the ring within a few hours and we are extremely thankful! Jim is persistent and truly cares about finding your lost ring and with his professional equipment and persistence, we were reunited with the lost ring! Hopefully we never lose another ring, but if we do, Jim will be the first one we contact.

ANOTHER Lost Wedding Ring Recovered In Fort Meade, Maryland!

  • from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)

I’m starting to think that Union Civil War General George Meade was not fond of jewelry and his ghost may be playing a role in the amount of lost rings at the Maryland fort that is named in his honor! A few weeks ago I received a call from Dina telling me how her husband lost his wedding ring in their back yard about a year prior. They we certain it was lost back there and because of that I felt confident that I could find it. I’ll let Dina tell the rest of the story in her own words…..

A year ago my hubby lost his wedding ring of 11 years the same week that he was scheduled to ship out to South Korea for a year long Army deployment. He was jumping on our backyard trampoline with our two children when he felt the ring fly off. He had lost some weight since we were married and I had been telling him to get it resized; not that I’m saying I TOLD HIM SO or anything of the kind. The four of us searched the perimeter to no avail. We brought out the child’s metal detector that we already had but it dinged on everything on the ground.
Seven months and many rainy and frigid days later, I gave up on ever finding it and bought him a new ring for Christmas. He wasn’t entirely thrilled with it; he was still attached to the original ring because I had had it engraved inside with a surprise “inside joke” phrase between us.
This April, the year in Korea was finally coming to an end and I figured I’d call in a professional as a last ditch effort before we moved away from Fort Meade the following month. My husband scoffed at the idea of Ringfinders locating his lost band, but I called Jim Wagner. I was immediately impressed at how professional and thorough he was on the phone with his questions and comments. The day he arrived I wasn’t expecting him to find anything, but he was confident and his efforts paid off in about 15 minutes! The ring was lodged in the mud close to the trampoline. My hubby was in such disbelief that he asked me to email him a photo as proof! We are so thankful to Jim for recovering something that had such great sentimental value to us.

I am glad I was successful. This one was a bit more special as I was able to return something to a family that serves and protects our freedom every day.
