I received a call from Brandon on Thursday asking if I could help him find his 14K Rose Gold wedding band which was lost on his property in Berryville, Virginia. Brandon stated he bought a metal detector and attempted to locate the ring himself, even searching at night with a flash light in hand, but no luck. As with most detectorists we know you sometimes have to get through a lot of trash in order to find the treasure and the trash was what Brandon was finding unfortunately. After getting a few details on when it was lost and approximate area on the property where he believed it may be located we arranged for me to come out on Friday morning. Since he was not going to be able to be there to meet me I had to initiate the search on what details I had and the pictures he sent me to come up with a search strategy.
I started my search to the left of his home and closer to the wood line which is where he believed it would be located. After about 90 minutes and a pound of debris, other than the woods itself, I felt I covered the backyard area pretty well. Before I took on the search of the large area of bushy woods I though I’d give the grassy area closer to the house and attach shed a quick grid search.
…after about 30 minutes….there she was, one of the prettiest colors of rose gold I’ve seen shining brightly and just waiting to get backs to it’s owner. I contacted Brandon via a text by sending him a photo of his ring, he was ecstatic at knowing his ring was found and would soon be back on his finger.
Glad I could reunite you with your ring Brandon….

I received a text message early Saturday morning from Todd in Bristow, Virginia requesting my assistance in locating his yellow gold wedding band which was lost somewhere in his backyard the night before. Todd has been enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having these past few days here on the East coast; spending time cleaning up the yard, doing some trimming of the bushes and vines, doing a general cleanup and hanging around his hammock. At some point during the evening he realized his ring was no longer on his finger, like many men including myself we tend to ‘feel’ the ring constantly as a nature of habit and that’s when he noticed it was gone. He spent several hours at night looking for the ring, unfortunately with no luck. As many customer tend to do he almost was tempted to purchase a metal detector himself, I’m glad he called me instead! Most if not all of the customers I’ve met who have purchased a lower end detector were not successful in finding their treasure as the unit may not have been sufficient to isolate the ring from many other hits, and new customers tend to not have the experience to fully utilize the detector’s features.
I arrived at Todd’s beautiful home in the early part of the afternoon, then after a brief description of his ‘yard’ activities I initially started a quick sweep to see if I could get a hit. With the quick sweep not showing any significant results I started a more detailed grid of different sections of the yard, still no ring. The yard was not significantly large, but was broken up into nice little sectional areas; hammock area, birdbath, stone walk, bush areas. After hitting most areas several times I started to focus on the bush areas next t the fence which also had heavy vines growing on them. I borrowed a rake and cleaned most of the leaves and debris from the bush bedding area and still after a few grid searches no good hits.
I was then laying on the ground running the detectors further in to reach past the heavier bushes that’s when there was something sparking as bright as the ring from Lord of Rings, there was Todd’s beautiful golden wedding band. Even with a detector it would have been difficult to get a hit on this one as it was positioned between two closely nestled bushes. Sometimes you just have to get dirty! Todd was so excited to see his ring back and immediately placed in on his finger, hopefully never to come off again.
Great customer, thank you Todd for using theRingFinders network.
Gold Wedding Band found in Bristow Virginia back yard.
It’s always such a pleasure to be able to bring joy to someone during the Holidays and this is just one of those stories. I received a call from Scott who had lost his treasured wedding band while out in his garden during the Thanksgiving weekend. Scott was setting up some wire fencing and moving leaves around and realized he had lost his wedding ring. He thought he felt it come off and looked in the area where he believed the ring should be, but unfortunately he couldn’t locate the ring. While continuing to look at little longer Scott recalled seeing an article about a ring finder (theringfinders) who had recovered a lost piece of jewelry for an actor. He located theRingFinders website and subsequently gave me a call. We made arrangements for me to meet up with him the next day.
Scott lives in the dense hills south of Harpers Ferry and Charles Town West Virginia. The trip was a beautiful 45 minute drive through some very scenic West Virginia country and at one point even my GPS was so confused I had to call Scott to guide me through the rest of the trip to get to his home.
Upon arriving I met with Scott and his wife, who showed me the garden area to the right of the house where he’d been working the day before. We chatted for a few minutes and then I got to work. There was some fencing pretty close together in the tight garden as well as several bushes which limited my ability to use the standard detector as I had limited swing. I soon realized I was going to have to do this on my knees with my Garrett detector probe if I was going to have any chance of finding the ring. After moving some of the surface leaves away I started by searching across several areas, inside the bushes near the trunks, across a few small garden step areas…and within just a few moments the probe started buzzing and chiming and I knew that strong sound!! Scott’s ring was hidden just under a large pile of leaves right where he thought he had lost it.
Gold Titanium ring found!
I excitedly sent Scott a text with the picture of his ring and immediately his wife was out on the back upper deck asking “You found it!!?” …at which I held the ring in the air!!
It would have been a disappointing memory to have lost your wedding ring during the Thanksgiving holiday and never to have found it. It was great pleasure to recovery Scott’s ring for him during this special Holiday and to see the happiness and smiles it brought to both him and his wife. God Bless and Happy Hunting!
We were called out today to search for a lost wedding ring. It had been lost the night before on a snow covered lawn. The owner had searched unsuccessfully. Took about 10 minutes for us to find it. Owner thankful on this Thanksgiving eve!

I received a call on August 24th from a gentleman named Lyle in Loudoun County Virginia in the Leesburg area. I could tell he was very upset and asked if I was with theringfinders and if I could help him locate his wedding ring he realized he just lost. I received a few more brief details and within an hour was at his location. At first I was amazed at the sheer size of the ranch spread with about 40 Black Angus cattle (lots of calves) wandering the fields everywhere, then I thought about the search size, huge!!
I met Lyle at the main field and he commenced to explaining that he had been working the fields the day before, pulling large trees for burning from various locations across the spread including an 8 foot wide stream adjacent to the fields. As we continued to talk the search area became even larger as he indicated he’d driven the tracker down a approx. 300 yard gravel path towards the main gate and also had been around the upper house (built in the 1700s) and bull pen area, again a huge amount of property to cover. This by far would be the largest site I’ve searched for a recovery, but I was ready for the challenge.
On the first day we did some initial gridding and searching, Lyle even assisted with another detector, unfortunately no luck, but we were both very optimistic we’d find it and I planned on being back the next day. I made another couple of trips for several hours each time, gridding each section out to approx 100 yards at a time with red flags. No luck on these trips and so on one of the trips I decided to keep the flags in place so I knew where I had worked the previous day. I received a text that evening that Lyle and his daughter had to quickly remove the flags after he caught the cows eating them. On a subsequent trip I conducted a circuit around the house again and then the bullpen, then I retraced my steps with the previous grids and after no luck I decided to put on my wetsuit and booties to hit the stream, not too deep, very muddy (cows were usually always in the way here) but only about 8 feet wide and probably 40-50 yards long, again no luck.
So I’ll skip the final day. Sept 4. I was doing a slight retrace of the very original area and had a hit that was deeper that something I was looking for but for some reason I decided to dig it. After several minutes I saw a horseshoe and noted that it was facing up, facing up is good luck for those who believe! I pulled out the horseshoe, said a quick prayer that maybe today would be the day to return Lyle’s wedding ring to him. I moved slightly to the left of the main search field and in front of the large fire pit area and searched for about 15 minutes, Voila!! About 20 yards from the fire pit a strong hit and there it was lying under a thicket of grass. I called Lyle and he was so startled he said he had goose bumps and was immediately on his way back to the ranch.
A lot of work on this one but a fun time, the cows kept a constant watch on me and even had a group of 30 beagle hounds great me one day as they were being driven by four riders on horses. A great guy and customer reunited with a very sentimental ring, Thanks for calling me Lyle!!
I received a message from fellow ring finder Edward Cropski aka/ N.J. Lost Ring Finder on Saturday afternoon about a lost wedding ring in Spring Lake NJ. Her friend found the Ringfinders website and reached out to Ed for her friend Vikki. Ed was away so he referred her to me. I called and made arrangements with Vikki to meet that same afternoon to conduct a search. It seems the ring fell out of her bag while packing up for the day. Her and her friend’s marked out the area they were set up before I arrived. After some chatting I began my search. Within 5 minutes I had her ring in my scoop! She was absolutely thrilled and relieved. She is just 2 weeks shy of celebrating her 1 year anniversary. We all took some photo’s and made our way to the exit. I was happy to find it and return it to her!. But the story isn’t over just yet, In a funny twist while walking back to my truck talking, She realized she forget her sandels. She went back to get them and when she came back she said to me ” It’s so odd, You just found my ring and I just found this iphone” I took a look at it and quickly realized it was my phone! It must have fallen out of my pocket after taking pictures. LOL. The customer has now become the finder! I thanked her and when she attempted to give me a reward but i simply said no thank you, We are even! She did insist on giving me something so I reluctantly and gratefully accepted.Another great ending with good karma for all!
