Lost Wedding Ring… Found At a Winery

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)

I received a call from Judy who was very upset about losing her wedding ring. She had been traveling from Minneapolis down to a wedding at a winery near Dubuque Iowa. She wasn’t sure where or how it was lost but it wasn’t in her car. They had made several stops along the way. She did send me a picture of where they were parked at the winery on a gravel lot. So I went on Friday to search for it.

After eliminating one area she stopped at I went on to the winery. Using the picture she sent me I started a grid search of the area. On the third pass I caught a glint of something shiny on the ground, going over it with the detector It sounded off. Yes it was her ring!

I was very happy to make that call to her and she was over the moon to receive it. Thanks Judy for the very nice reward.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sapphire & Diamonds 18k White Gold Wedding Ring Found Near Coal Creek… Bellevue, WA!!!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

Diamonds and sapphires in white gold!

I got a call from Randy who lost his ring sometime last month while driving to a jobsite. Apparently he had removed his ring and put it into a cup (with some liquid) in his console. Sometime later, he forgot it was in there and he tossed the contents out the window as he was driving around the bend to one of his worksites!!!

Luckily Randy remembered seeing a Ringfinders Facebook post that featured my previous find and looked me up! He remembered the turn on the road and gave me a general area to look for his ring.

I searched the side of the road for some time… After gridding the area he pointed out, I extended my search area. He was close in proximity but it was a bit further than he remembered. I found it! A beautiful white gold ring with some really cool sapphires and diamonds!

Lost gold ring gardening in Vancouver, BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call from young lady, she asked if I could find a ring that she lost a year ago under her front porch. Sounds easy enough so we set up a date for Saturday to come and look for it. She tells me that she rented a metal detector and found a bunch of nails and gave up the search, she also tells me they are selling the house and she needs to find this ring ASAP.

After arriving to the location, I met her husband and we went over the search location,  I’m still a little unclear  were the ring was lost, he said she was gardening that day but also told me the ring was lost under the front porch. I ended up calling his wife Tracy and she told me 100% the ring was lost under the front porch. After digging around in the rocks up pops a beautiful gold ring from behind some rocks up against the house.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring .. Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, CA. .. Found with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nate called me from Crystal Cove State Beach which is located about five miles from my location. He had spent a couple hours trying to find his platinum wedding ring lost in the dry sand.

Nate had given his wedding ring to his wife, Julie while he went for a swim. Julie slipped it onto her finger as she has done before, but this time she didn’t put her ring on to secure it. When the ring slipped off her finger she felt it come off as soon happened.

Parking lot was full but I on my first pass a car was just leaving and I got a great parking space. Julie and Nate were keeping the area of the loss clear even though the beach was packed. It should be an easy search if the ring didn’t fly into one of the neighbors camp area.

Grid searching a 12’x 20′ zone, I was able to find the ring within 15 minutes. It was deeper than I expected because they had moved a lot of sand searching by hand. Julie was overjoyed and very emotional when I gave her thumbs up telling her I had it in my scoop. Both Nate and Julie thanked me. They were just surprised that they could actually find a service like we offer through TheRingFinders.com.

Lost platinum wedding ring found in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

 

“I was absolutely crushed when my wedding ring flew off into some very thick trees, bushes, ivy and other dark undergrowth when out jogging one evening. Unfortunately, I had been unable to see exactly what direction it had flown off in so had quite a wide search area of about 10 metres square to thrash through.
After a total of six hours (across the course of the evening when the incident happened and the morning after) of searching I had given up on ever seeing it again but decided to go online – just to see if I could get any last ideas of how I might find it and stumbled across Constantine’s profile. In short – he saved my life. I contacted Constantine in the morning and by the afternoon he had come up from Oxfordshire with his equipment. It took him about an hour to find the ring – deep under some brambles. 
Worth every penny of the modest call-out fee and reward!”

Platinum and White Gold Wedding Ring Lost .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Recovered

Sunday of Labor Day weekend, I was sitting near the office at the Newport Dunes RV Resort. Mike called asking if I could help him find his Platinum / White Gold wedding ring lost in dry sand. I asked him where he was located. He told me he was at the Newport Dunes on the beach. Couldn’t believe that I was less than 50 yards away. I walked over to talk to him, but had to go a couple blocks to get my detector.

When I returned Mike told me that he had put 3 rings in the cupholder of the beach chair and they fell out when picked up the chair. He found two of the rings but this one wouldn’t let him find it. The area was well marked off, so began a small grid search. Actually, I missed it on my first grid. It showed up in the scoop after I did a cross grid and it was a very scratchy signal, possibly because of the two different metals. The ring is mostly platinum with white gold filigree inlaid. I didn’t have time to re-scan the ring with my detector to learn why it was such an iffy signal. Possibly the ring was vertical in the sand which coming in from the other direction may have helped the signal? No time to play around we had photos to take for the book of smiles.

It was a good short search with smiles everywhere and Mike was grateful to have his wedding ring of 20 years back on his finger. I still can’t believe how close I was when he called.

Lost Keys Found! Avalon NJ

from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from Andrew late yesterday evening after he and his family left the beach yesterday, realizing that he had lost his keys in the sand.  He explained where about the family was sitting grid of that area the keys were nowhere to be found.  So we expanded the search further out another 30 feet on each side and the rental car keys were found!

 

Found in Crawlspace of Seattle, WA! Lost Gold & Diamond Engagement Ring!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

This afternoon I received an email from a Hawthorne Hills couple who had lost a ring over the weekend. While fidgeting with one of her rings on the back deck, the ring slipped out of her hand and they heard it hit the deck and roll! The deck was on a steep incline with lots of landscaped features and shrubbery around it, all very viable and hard to find places it could have landed. They searched for a while before realizing what they needed was a metal detector… or even better, a Ringfinder!

After a phone conversation where I got the details I needed to plan my attack, I gathered up my gear. I made it there soon thereafter and started to hunt the landscaped hillside. After striking out around the perimeter, the grim possibility that it slipped through the cracks of the deck was growing. The heat was stifling, and my summer attire of flipflops and shorts was not the best choice of armor to battle man-eating spiders and other scary things (alive or dead) in the cramped dark area under the deck! But once I had exhausted the other possibilities, it was time…for THE CRAWLSPACE!

Needless to say, it was cramped under there. I had to belly crawl around and I methodically swept the area with my detector. Turning around was nearly impossible, and I was hoping to end this hunt quick! Luckily, after some time, SUCCESS! The ring was found and I quickly escaped the creepycrawlers! After celebrating with the owners, I hastily drove home for a “Silkwood shower”!

Chain Lost in the Woods – Found in Oakton Virginia (Sept 2017)

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)

An email came in earlier in the week describing the “chain of events”: Howard and his son were doing some work last weekend along the fence of his property; pulling old fence posts using Howard’s tractor and his 12′ long chain. After the work was complete, they threw the chain in the bucket of the tractor and Howard’s son headed for the garage. Along the way, his son decided to level off an area of dirt, leaves, and compost… once back at the garage – no chain anymore. Howard was pretty sure the chain was in a 25 sq ft area of a freshly leveled dirt mix, but had no idea how deep it could be. They searched for the chain, even used an old metal detector they had on hand, but could not locate it anywhere. So Howard emailed me through the RingFinders and we settled on a time to link up – Friday around 5pm. Once on site, Howard showed me the area, I got my machine ready for the search and off I went… 6 swings in and I heard the unmistakable tone through the headset… Howard’s chain has been found.

 

                  

 

Stone Harbor NJ Lost Wedding Ring Found by Dave Milsted

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I received a desperate email from a devastated woman. I was Mary’s last hope. The day before she went with her family for a day trip to the beach in Stone Harbor NJ. While her husband in the water with their daughter, he watched his ring fall off his hand and sink into the sandy bottom. They searched for a while with no success.

They drove back home thinking that the ring was gone forever. A search of the internet, later that night brought Mary to the Ring Finders site since I have made other recoveries in Stone Harbor. She sent me an email around midnight.

I didn’t see it until after my 6-mile run the next morning. I answered her email asking all of the questions needed when doing a water search. I also followed up with a phone call. Mary answered all of my questions, but she said there was someone else already looking for the ring. I said to let me know if she needed me when he was done.

Later in the morning, I called the other detectorist. He said that he didn’t have any luck in finding it. So Mary and I were in touch again. I told her that I would go look for her.

On the drive to the beach, I was getting a gut feeling that this wouldn’t be successful. Someone else already searched the area. I asked for help from above from my mom & my mentor.

I got to the beach and got another bad feeling. I waited till the lifeguards left. I was in the water at 5 pm. I didn’t get my first signal till 5:10 pm. It was a very promising sound and number on my CTX 3030. It was the ring that I was looking for. I left the beach to get my phone to take some pictures. I sent one to Mary. She called right away and I could tell that she was crying. We made arrangements to meet the next day to return the ring.

I got plenty of hugs when we met. It’s a good thing that my wife doesn’t get jealous!!!
