Diamond Wedding Rings Lost Two Months Ago Found In Morehead City Waters

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Amanda explained to me, two months ago, her daughter had cut her foot in the waters of a small Morehead City, NC beach.  During the excitement, Amanda had taken off her long sleeve coverup shirt to wrap her daughters food on the beach.  She told me that is where she thought her rings were pulled from her finger.  She explained she had a group with metal detectors come out the July 4th weekend to help locate the missing rings.  It wasn’t until a friend had heard about The Ring Finders on a radio broadcast and this lead Amanda to contact Crystal Coast Ring Finders.  My first attempt was to thoroughly search the beach and shallow water.  This beach was full of various garbage, mostly aluminum which is a nemesis to detectorist.  My second day attempt was planned so that it would be during a low tide and more importantly, early enough in the morning that nobody would be in the way of my search.  I arrived at 6am, just before it was getting light enough to see.  I began a search from beach to water and back.  Each time I would go in just above knee deep water as Amanda told me it happened at low tide that day and the deepest she went was knee deep water.  I must admit my doubts of finding the rings lost in a public area 2 months prior were in my mind.  I also knew if I don’t try all possible areas, I wouldn’t be assured I tried my best.  The waters still produced a large amount of aluminum and each time I would try to scoop the target and dump it into my floating sifter.  I was in an area with multiple targets around me when I dumped a scoopful and was about to dig again when I glanced over to see Amanda’s wedding band laying in the basket.  I was in knee deep water at the time.  The very next scoop raised her beautiful engagement ring!

Amanda was very close by and I called her just before 8 am to ask her to come down and help me narrow my search area because of the numerous garbage items I was digging.  Amanda showed up with her daughter and at one point when she looked away, I held out both of her lost rings.  She looked back and noticed in disbelief her rings in my hand.  It is moments like this that make me proud to return items that have so much meaning!

Lost Ring Morristown NJ… Found!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

Adam called me looking for some help finding his platinum wedding band which he lost about a week and a half ago.  His 4-year-old son had asked to see the ring in the house, but then went out in the backyard and ran around.  Needless to say, the ring fell off while he was out in the yard and was lost in the grass.  We made plans to meet the next day at his house to search the yard.  I started my search close to the house and made grid lines with my feet.  About 75% through the yard, I got a solid 16 showing at a depth of 1 shovel on my Equinox 800.  Sure enough,   there was the ring.  It’s always a great feeling to be able to find and return a ring!  And, it’s even better when it’s a person as nice as Adam and his family! 🙂

Contact:

I got a text from Dan he lost his ring at the beach early today. Asked if I could come out and if yes he would meet me at Cuposque Beach in Westhampton.  I told him I would meet him there at 4:30.  We agreed on a spot to meet.

When I got there we meet up and walked over to the beach to the area that he lost. When wwe got there he said is is the place, there was someone there that was still there from this morning.  I set up a square out side of the spot where he was sitting.  Started the search making small sweeps of the square.  After two laps I get a very strong signal with something down about 2 inches.  Took me beach scoop and BINGO there was the ring.  He told all of the other beach goers that I found his ring. Many of them clapped.

Lost Diamond Ring During Atlantic Beach Gathering Found With Good Timing

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Jo Ann was brought out to Atlantic Beach for a family photo shoot and to spend time with her family.   Her great grand kids had gathered sand & fiddler crabs in a bucket.  Jo Ann put her hand into the bucket of sand, water & crabs when one of her rings slipped off into the bucket.  It wasn’t until after the bucket was dumped back into the oncoming surf that it was discovered, one of her rings was missing.  A friend and I were just walking onto the beach to help remove some of the metal garbage laying under the sand when a family member approached us and told us of the situation.  After a few passes, the ring was found in the sand under the shallow water.  It took about 5 minutes.  We walked up to where they were sitting and none of them had realized we had found her ring.  They started to thank us for searching thinking were didn’t find the ring when we presented the ring.  They were very thankful but on a tight schedule so we made the return as brief as possible and we went back to cleaning the beach.

 

Sentimental Lost Rings Found Atlantic Beach, NC By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

Kelly started to send me vague questions about my service and what was required from her.  It was a very busy day for me and I also had plans to search for a lost ring the next morning.  Once she gave more details about where she had lost an heirloom gold diamond ring and also a second gold aquamarine ring from her father, I was started to worry as they were very close to a busy section of beach.  I had made plans to sacrifice some sleep to arrive at Atlantic Beach a few hours before heading to my morning appointment in New Bern, NC.  As I knew my search time was short, I “phoned a friend” to assist with the hunt.  Justin and I started at the area Kelly had marked very well with pictures, illustrations and landmarks.  Justin began hunting the upper section of the recently replenished beach that was full of small pieces of aluminum as I worked from the high tide line.  It only took about 30 minutes until Justin was able to winkle out Kelly’s two beautiful rings!  Kelly informed us that she worked in New Bern so we still had time to hand deliver her recently found rings before heading to my previous planned location.

Lost Wedding Band and Engagement Ring Found Ocean City NJ By Ring Finders South Jersey

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

I received a call from Jackie about her sister Aileen’s wedding band and engagement ring that were lost earlier this afternoon in Ocean City, NJ.  I met with the family on the beach to get some additional details and a general idea for where to start the search. The rings fell into the water when Aileen was throwing a football in the surf.  I found the engagement ring buried approximately 8 inches in the sand, much deeper than expected since it was dropped only a couple of hours prior.  The wedding band was roughly 10 feet away at the bottom the slope, buried just as deep.  It was very exciting to find the rings since the couple just celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past Friday!  Congratulations!

Lost Engagement Ring From Emerald Isle Pier Found By Crystal Coast Ring Finders

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Well, Dog Gone!

Jayme was on the Sound side of Emerald Isle on a hot sunny day.  She removed her ring to apply sunscreen and placed it onto the blanket on the bench.  A small dog that came along for a swim was also on the bench and moved the towel causing the ring to fall between the pier slots and into the murky waters.  A plea on Facebook once again helped connect Jayme with Crystal Coast Ring Finders a proud member of the global organization The Ring Finders.  I quickly went to work in he hip deep water and after numerous iron signals, my Minelab CTX-3030 located a non-ferrous item near the drop area.  I used my pinpointer to go underwater and felt it vibrate all of the way back out of the water with Jayme’s engagement ring in hand!  Jayme’s tears were a sure sign of how important this sign of love means to her!

Contact:

I received a call from Chris that he lost his wedding ring in Bridgehampton at a wedding reception. He asked if I could help and said I would be out the  next mourning. As usual traffic was bad going to the Hamptons, I made it and meet Chris at the Topping Rose House where the reception was held on Saturday.  I was hoping the grass wasn’t cut as a ring could get damaged by the lawn mower. It wasn’t.

Chris showed me a photo taken at the reception showing me the ring. he stated that later is when he didn’t have it on his finger. I asked where he was sitting and a few other questions.  I then got me detector and started searching.  It take long to find the ring in the grass. Looking down to where the ring was, could not see it, I used my pin pointer to located a closer spot and using my fingers I located it. I showed it to Chris and A big smile came across his face and with a shock in his voice he yells you found it.

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

 

Ashley & Will married on the Emerald Isle, North Carolina beach Monday.  Three days later, Will was throwing a football on the beach to Ashley’s brother.  Within minutes he noticed his ring was gone and Ashley pleaded on a local Facebook page for someone with a metal detector.  Many had mentioned Steven Ray of Crystal Coast Ring Finders and after Ashley called, I came out as soon as possible to begin the search in the dark.  The couple had marked the search area very well for me and this aided in finding Will’s new ring quickly.

Lost Wedding Band Found Ocean City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey

Lost a ring?

Don’t wait to call!

215-850-0188

I received a message on my Ring Finders South Jersey Facebook page from Dorothy who asked if I could help find a wedding ring that was lost in Ocean City, NJ earlier today. The ring belongs to her friend Ryan’s father.  I spoke with Ryan and he told me how his father Jim lost his wedding band while out in the waves during high tide.  We planned to meet during low tide to give us the best chance at finding it.  After a thorough grid search of the area did not produce the ring, I expanded the search out a little farther.  It was a few minutes later that I heard the tone and dug down approximately 10 inches in the sand.  It was the ring!  The ring that Jim has not taken off his hand since 1974, the year he married his wife.  It was pure joy when the ring was found and able to be put back where it belongs.
