45 Second Search Yields Lost Ring

Michael and his Wife Emily of Alexandria, VA were taking a short vacation to visit his 94 year old grandfather in Venice, FL then spend a couple of days at Treasure Island Resort.

Michael and Emily went out to the beach and shortly after arriving Michael went to the waters edge to wash his hands and his wedding ring slipped off his finger and out of sight. After searching the sand for a while he started googling “how to find gold rings in the sand and came across theringfinders.com website and contacted Tom Jones and asked if someone could help.

Tom met the couple later that afternoon, Michael told Tom exactly where he thought it was and 45 seconds after turning the detector on Tom finds the ring exactly where it it was supposed to be and returned it to the smiling pair.

The couple told Tom, “it is nice to know there are people like your group left in this world.”

This one took 45 seconds to recover.

A very happy couple!

Michael, Emily, Tom and of course, the ring.

Camper Loses Chain And Crucifix On Anclote Island

Andrew was camping on Anclote Island with friends when he discovered his gold chain with crucifix his grandfather had given him was missing.

When he got home he told mom who was able to find the Suncoast Research and Recovery Club Ringfinders blog. His mother sent an email requesting help from the club and was contacted by Howard Metts.

Howard and Ed Osmar met Andrew, his mother, and friends that supplied a boat to get us out to the island. About 30 minutes into the hunt Andrew spotted the chain sticking out of the sand, however the crucifix was not with it. Ten minutes later Howard Metts got a good signal and came up with the crucifix. Mom and Andrew were very grateful for the recovery.

Casey had been watching several children at Sorensen Park in Whittier, CA. While sitting on the lawn she took her white gold promise ring putting it on her backpack so she could apply sunscreen. She got distracted when one of the children she was supervising started to wander off. The ring fell off the backpack into to deep grass.

She didn’t realize the ring was missing for about an hour. Her attempts to locate her most special sentimental ring were unsuccessful.

Returning home that evening she told David, her fiancé. He was able to direct her to TheRingFinders website.

Somewhere about 10am she called me telling me she could meet me at the park around noon. It’s not always easy to have people meet you a the location. Timing is important when items are lost in a public place.

Casey was able to get me within a 50ft. square area. I began my grid search and within a half hour I got a nice low tone in my headphones. Kneeling down with my pinpointer I received a surface signal. The ring was not visible until I pushed away some of the clover grass.

She was several feet away pacing back and forth hoping to spot the ring herself, which does happen on these type of searches. Sometimes it’s just a matter of the position of the sun that helps to see a lost ring.

When, I called her over to look at something she had no idea that I had found the ring. It was special for me to see the look on her face when she saw the ring that she felt was lost forever.

This call was referred to me my another member of TheRingFinders, we always try to work with each other to handle these calls in the best possible way. Finding and Returning sentimental keepsakes is our priority.

Lost wedding ring at Bethune Beach, Fl……Found!

February 12th, 2018 Kyle wrote, “This is less of a review and more of a testimony. After an evening with my wife and some friends on the beach, tossing the football around, I realized after we had left that my wedding ring was no longer on my finger. To say panic set in, would be an understatement as this was the ring my wife and I had picked out together just over a year ago and she had put it on my finger at our wedding shortly after. After searching as thoroughly as possible, all hope was lost. How could I replace something that was irreplaceable? Turns out I wouldn’t have to! Thanks to some quick searching online by my wife, we found Mike’s information and I quickly contacted him. You would have thought his services would cost more than the ring I lost by the amount of detailed questions he asked, trying his best to narrow down the most likely location of my ring. After a few emails back and forth late in the evening, Mike put my mind at ease and said he was on the job. I thought, surely this was a lost cause, a ring lost on the beach….good luck with that! But Mike didn’t need luck, he’s a skilled veteran and within an hour of setting foot on the beach, he recovered my lost ring and saved my wife and I both heartache and money. There is no way I can thank him enough for his services. He’s living proof that miracles happen and sometimes you have to lose something to find them. As I told him before I left, I’d hoped I’d never need his services again, but you can bet that if the occasion ever arises, I’ll be calling Mike, The Lord of the Rings, to bring my precious back home to me!”
Thank you Kyle for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to help you get your “precious” ring back where it belongs.

Lost Wedding Ring in Sand at Laguna Beach, CA. .. Found

Shaun lost his platinum wedding ring in the sand at Laguna Beach, CA. He had been on the dry sand when he brushed some sand off and his ring went flying into the sand. After 3 hours of trying to find it he gave up. Returning home he found my contact information online. Shaun called me at 7pm asking me if I could help him the next morning. I told him it was not wise to wait. He agreed to meet me a half hour later and before 8pm I was able to locate his platinum wedding band.

It wasn’t an easy search, because there was several deep metal signals that interfered with my search. We were lucky to pull out the platinum ring signal which read 12-04 on my CTX detector.

Shaun and his wife Elaine were totally surprised and grateful to have their ring back where it belongs. Everybody slept well that night. We were all back home by 9 pm.

 

Lost ring in sand at Daytona Beach, Fl……Found!

Jan. 1st, I received this comment on one of my ring search stories. Rich wrote, “I believe I lost my ring on the beach approximately 50 yards to the right–facing the ocean–from the end of the Oceanview parking lot wooden walkway. It may have slid off my finger when I shook out my wife’s towel. It is a simple gold Florentine wedding band with “Marla love Oli 1974″ engraved on the inside. By some stroke of luck if anyone finds it, please notify me. Thanks, Rich” So I sent Rich an e-mail and asked him my usual questions, like: “What day and what time of the day were you on the beach and shook out your towel?” And “When can you meet me and show me the exact place where you were on the beach?” And, “And it sounds like you are not exactly sure that you lost it on the beach!” Rich’s response was “I am sorry, but I forgot to mention that I am in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area and was vacationing in Florida when I lost my ring.”
Thankfully Rich was able to give me precise details about where they were on the beach and what the area looked like. He even sent me a link to a google map with a pin of where they were when he shook out their towels. One of his descriptions of the beach indicated that there was soft sand and a long row of seaweed close to where they were sitting. That is what it looked like on Dec. 26th–the day after Christmas. But when I arrived at the beach, 9 days later, it was totally different looking. Sometime between Dec. 26th and Jan. 4th we had some really big waves with extra high surf. Enough to take a good 3 feet of sand off the upper beach area. There was literally no soft sand, except way up on the dunes. So I set up my 4 flags in the target area and looked for 4 hours and no ring. I did find lots of other targets–185 to be exact! Old crusty, green coins, fishing weights and all sorts of items. I sort of figured the ring would not be there after so much erosion and made plans to come back the following Sat. to look again. When I arrived on Saturday, the tide was a bit higher than I expected and I wound up searching higher up the beach and after digging more green coins and fishing weights—to my surprise up pops Rich’s lost gold wedding ring! I could hardly believe it was still in the same general area after all that erosion. I determined that a mans gold ring is quite different than a coin in that it does not slide and move around like a coin would. As the waves wash over it, back and forth, it tends to go down because of the hole in the center.
Rich was thrilled to hear that I found his ring and I was able to mail it to him the next week. All told, I searched 5 and a half hours and dug 185 targets, while looking for Rich’s ring. And it was so worth it!! Lost your ring? Call ASAP!

Wedding Ring Lost in Sand at a Local City Park

Nick called me early in the morning, asking my help finding his wedding band that he lost the last night. He was doing his daily workout after work. After he finishes his two mile run, he stops by a local park that has some workout bars that he uses to do some upper arm exercises.

While working out on the bars his wedding band slipped off his finger into deep sand. Nick went back to his house to get tools to sift trough the sand with no success finding his ring.

The next day Nick found my contact information on TheRingFinders.com.
He would be working till late that night, making it impossible to meet me at the site of the loss.

No problem for me as it was a neighborhood tot lot that would be find if he texted me the address. These public parks get hit hard by other people with metal detectors, especially sandy tot lot play areas.

I went to the park but could not locate the area Nick had described. I could not contact him but he did call me to check on my progress and he had sent me the wrong directions. A half hour later I was at the right park and within a few minutes I found Nick’s wedding ring.
I called him setting up a place we could meet to personally give him his wedding band back after he got off work. He was definitely grateful, thanking me several times.

Its always nice to return the ring directly to the owner, I know I’ll never get tired of doing this.

 

Lost Tungsten Wedding Band Recovered in Calgary

from Airdrie (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-403-701-1739

I received a call last evening from Orla, she explained that her husband had been cross-country skiing in a park area in Calgary, Alberta and had fallen and lost his Tungsten Wedding Ring.  We agreed to meet the next day since it was already dark.  We got together at 3:30 pm the next day and made our way over to the park area.  The climb down to the track was a bit slippery considering it was a steep hill and I’m not as limber as I once was, but we made it without mishap.  Once at the track through the trees, Orla pointed out the 2-meter x 3-meter area where her husband had fallen and I started to work.  While there was quite a bit of snow the long grass had been bent over by the weight of the snow making a loose but thick base for a ring to fall into and through.  However, after just a few passes over the area my Metal Detector came through with the bright tone I was hoping for and after scratching through the snow and grass out came a bright silver colored Tungsten Wedding Band.  Orla was thrilled to get it back as they had already looked to no avail.   Another super happy customer of the Ring Finders.

Diamond gold ring lost, found, in Bloomington, MN

from Elk River (Minnesota, United States)
Contact: 1-763-219-2782

I got the call to recover an 18k yellow gold diamond ring that was lost by a woman when she was shaking off her hands after taking a fall on some snowy pavement.  I detected all around in the snow near where she had fallen with no luck.  I thought if it had bounced in the parking lot it would be easily visible.   Started scanning the road and got a clear perfect gold signal.  Bent over and moved some slush out of the way and revealed the gold ring which gave her an instant reaction of joy.  You never know where those gold rings will hide.  It had just happened to bounce in a small pile of slush on a road that was 80% clear.
