Lost ring in Lake Baldwin, Orlando, Fl……Found!
Can you imagine it’s your wedding day and everything is ready?! The chairs are all set up, the guests have arrived and the ceremony begins. It’s the perfect day to be outdoors, in the gazebo, on the lake. And partway through the ceremony the bride’s sister-in-law is holding the rings in a small box and just to make sure they are ready, she opens the box and somehow the brides ring drops to the deck and bounces off into the 9 foot deep water! Stunned and in shock, she cannot believe what just happened. After the ceremony the sister-in-law actually jumped into the cold water hoping to be able to retrieve the ring, but with all the weeds and soft muddy bottom, plus being 9 feet deep—it was hopeless!
Nichole contacted theringfinders.com and made arrangements to have someone meet her and attempt to recover her ring. Much to her dismay the first members search proved unsuccessful. And after looking further on theringfinders.com website she read some of the stories posted under my blog and decided to give me a call. I assured Nichole I would do everything possible to get her ring back. My first step was to call a good friend of mine, named Chris C.. He is a certified diver and has a passion for diving. A few days later we made plans to meet at the lake, suit up and find Nichole’s lost ring. But the cold water, the soft muddy bottom and an absolutely ton of weeds growing up through the mud made searching very difficult. It was impossible to actually swing a metal detector along the bottom so I opted to use my Garrett AT Pro Pointer to go inch by inch through the mud. (Nichole had shown me the precise area where the ring fell into the water so it was a matter of removing all the metal targets to be able to find her ring.) Every 5 inches I would get a signal–fish hooks, lures, coins, bottle caps, screws, nails and even a water logged cell phone and a small stainless ring were just some of the items retrieved in the 40 minutes under water. Then finally, in a hand full of mud, up came Nichole’s lost ring! It was hard to contain my excitement as I added some air to my BC and headed to the surface. What a thrill! I called Nichole and asked her if she was sitting down and then gave her the good news! She could hardly believe that we had actually found her ring and insisted I send her a picture just to make sure it was really her ring. Thank you so much for your generous reward and thank you Chris for the use of your equipment and for giving me a taste of what diving is all about! I plan to get certified and look forward to other underwater searches!

Gold ring recovered in Rochester, New York
I received a call from Steve last week about a lost ring. The ring flew off his hand while he was at a Fourth of July party last weekend during a little wrestling match between him and his friends in the sand after a few drinks. Pretty standard behavior as far as I’m concerned. He saw the ring come off and as you can imagine, they spent the rest of the day looking for it. He rented a metal detector and tried to find it himself, but had no luck. He found me online and explained what happened, and I agreed to come and take a look for him on the weekend.
I arrived Saturday morning and had Steve explain in further detail what had happened. I grabbed my detector and started combing the beach, using my grid lines. I was extra thorough as I didn’t want to miss the ring. After about two hours of searching, I finally got a great signal. There was the ring! And wow what a beautiful ring it was. It was his grandfathers ring from Italy and upon seeing it, I realized why it meant so much to him. What a great feeling to return a piece of history to its rightful owner. We were both thrilled. Thanks so much Steve for giving me the opportunity to get your ring back, and for the generous reward!
Ring Lost First Day after Wedding .. Santa Ana, CA. .. Recovered
Javier called me about 8 pm, Monday night. He had lost his wedding ring the day after his marriage to Stephanie. They had a big reception, Sunday at his parent’s home. He wasn’t quite sure where or when it was lost but he was able to eliminate a few areas by reviewing photos taken during the day.
He believed it was lost on their large lawn. It was not a public area so it wasn’t necessary to do the search that night. It’s always a question in my mind, what kind of conditions will I find when I get to the search area. It was a nice yard area that had quite a few metal trash signals, mostly deep. I set my sensitivity on my detector low because there is no need to waste time investigating deep targets. I concentrated on the low tones with surface depth readings ( 1″ or 2″ ). After about 30 minutes I got a got the perfect gold tone at 2 inches. Javier’s ring in the grass probably stepped deep into the grass by several people during the party.
The family had left me to do the search while they waited inside the house. I did not touch the ring, I wanted them to see how well it was hiding in the grass. We all enjoyed the moment, sincerely thanking me and taking time to take photos. It was definitely a pleasure to help them find their wedding ring.
