While playing football with friends at the beach along the water, this young man’s wedding ring flew off and disappeared in the sand. With the help of his family and friends, they tried searching for it with no success.
After returning to their hotel and browsing the internet on how to find a lost ring, they discovered The RingFinders website and that’s when we received their plea for help as we offer our services to all the beaches in the the Naples area as well as Fort Myers and Sanibel.
To avoid the next morning’s traffic, we all agreed to meet that evening even though it was near midnight by the time we arrived at the beach.
My wife and I both began searching with our top-of-the-line Minelab metal detectors. In less than 30 minutes, the lost ring had been found and returned!
We are happy that this most recent ring found and returned makes our 44th documented ring recovery for our book of smiles.
Between my wife and I, we have several years of professional metal detecting experience at South Florida area beaches–which include Vanderbilt Beach, Del-nor Wiggins Pass, Barefoot Beach, Naples Pier, Clam Pass, Bonita Springs, Lowdermilk Park, Lover’s Key, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Captiva Beaches.
I received an email from Presley requesting my assistance in recovering her lost ring. She was referred to me by her friend who I had helped find a ring for last September after the hurricane. I made contact with Presley and she explained how she had lost her gold diamond ring in her private pond and could be in water as deep as 6-8 feet.
After several conversations and lots of consideration of how to tackle this ring recovery, I made arrangements to meet her. After assessing the pond (and hoping there were no alligators) I decided to first see how solid the bottom of the pond was and in how deep of water the ring might be in. Not long after entering the pond, I got a hit on my metal detector at a depth of under five feet. Sure enough, after a couple of attempts, the ring was in the scoop.
The smile on her face tells just how happy she was to have her ring back on her finger where it belongs!
This nice young man called us after losing his rose gold pendant in the ocean. While throwing frisbee on the sandbar at Fort Myers Beach, the chain around his neck broke allowing the pendant to fall into the water below.
As the chain and pendant had been passed down to his father and then to him, it had great sentimental value. He began searching the Internet and came across the ring finder website. After reading our many success stories, he gave us a call and we made arrangements to meet the next day.
Upon arrival, he walked out with us in the water to the top of the sandbar. (When he lost the pendant he made sure to pick out landmarks to identify the general area–which is very helpful in search and recovery) He pointed out the area where he thought he lost it and then headed back to shore so we could begin our search. Within about twenty minutes we were successful in locating the missing pendant just a few feet away from where he thought he had lost it!
My wife and I received a text message at 11:21 pm from Chris requesting help to locate his wedding ring he had lost earlier in the day at Bowman’s Beach at Sanibel / Captiva island. (He had lost it when he took it off to apply sunscreen to the kids and had forgotten he had placed it in his lap when he stood up).
Chris and his family had spent quite a bit of time looking for the ring themselves with no success, so we were eager to help them out and we arranged to meet early the next morning when the park opened up.
After discussing the area of the beach where they thought the ring was lost in the sand, we began our search. Within a few minutes, I got a solid gold tone on my metal detector. There in the scoop was the missing white gold ring!
We received the following testimonial from our most recent search for a lost gold wedding band at Fort Myers Beach, FL :
“Thank you, Craig and Stephanie! You were very responsive to my call and got out to our beach rental house the same day, finding my wedding band within hours of arriving. I’m incredibly appreciative of your professionalism and genuineness. I hope I never have to call you again, but if I do, I know I’ll be in good hands! –Nat Estes
