I had the privilege of providing a search and recovery metal detecting service for Kelly and Jim in Germantown, Maryland.

The couple was relaxing and drinking wine on their wrap around porch one evening. Kelly took off her enhancer ring which surrounded the 14 karat white gold wedding band and put it on the table where the wine glasses sat.

One of their sons came out with a stick and wanted to show them something about it. He accidentally knocked the rings off of the table along with at least one of the wine glasses which broke on the floor.

The couple looked for the two rings and they quickly found the enhancer resting across the floor, but not the wedding band. For an entire week, Jim and Kelly searched diligently for the missing ring but ended up having no answers to show for their many hours of searching with a metal detector.

Jim shared that the metal detector they used kept making beeping sounds and they got simply nowhere with it. It was picking up all kinds of metal from the house, including nails and other miscellaneous items, but not what they were looking for.

Jim found me on THE RING FINDERS international metal detectorist directory website and then reached out to me as soon as they realized that they needed a professional metal detectorist to help them. He explained to me that finding the ring was one of their top priorities because they were packing up their things and moving to their new house in Florida in just one week! It was obviously essential for me to be successful with this ring search call-out to their home! I couldn’t wait to solve this mystery!

When I arrived at the family’s home, I was greeted by one of the children outside by my car. All of the kids were just fantastic to be around! They all wanted to learn about metal detecting and see how I would find the missing ring.

After I introduced myself to Jim and Kelly, they showed me where they were sitting on the porch and where they found the enhancer ring. I noticed that the bushes in front of the entire wrap around porch area were extremely dense, nearly 12 feet deep from the edge of the porch all the way to where the lawn began.

The couple shared with me that they looked for hours upon hours, day after day for an entire week, searching endlessly for the missing wedding band. They were just completely exhausted with all of their attempts.

Once I got the whole story as to what happened that caused the one ring to completely disappear, I gave my word to Kelly and Jim that they would get the ring back in time for their move the following week! I certainly hoped that I was going to recover the lost jewel that evening if all possible.

I went to the car and got all of the equipment that I needed to conduct the search. I even brought my endoscope with me in order to look down into the porch floor boards just in case there was enough space for the ring to have slipped down into a large enough crack in the wood. Upon checking all of the gaps between the boards, there was not enough room for the ring to fall down into the porch flooring.

Next, I began metal detecting in the bushes next to the porch and I began pulling up all kinds of kiddy toys and miscellaneous pieces of metal. There were pull tabs and nails along with rolled up pieces of aluminum foil that were once imaginary play things for the children. I thought that was really sentimental and fun to uncover! The parents got a kick out of it! I used a 6-inch coil on the end of my detector to search the hard to get to places and I carefully inspected the areas where there were some electrical lines that were no longer in use. Still I could not find Kelly’s beautiful wedding band.

While I was conducting the search, all of the children played around my working area and interacted with me regarding their curiosities about my methods of metal detecting. They always had something fun to show me and I was quite honored that they seemed to feel comfortable approaching me and including me in their own outdoor endeavors!

Once I cleared a particular area of ground surrounded by a section of bushes, I moved to another part and carefully examined every square inch possible of that quadrant. I used my pinpointer to search in the branches just in case the ring ended up landing “above ground”! The hedges were extremely thick and it was quite possible the ring could have absolutely landed in the middle of some branches and needles.

The thickets were so dense that I thought it to be almost impossible for Kelly’s wedding band to have made it more than a few feet into the bushes based on how thick the whole area was down there. I metal detected from the edge of the porch to about 5 feet into the shrubs. I conducted the search all the way around that entire side of the porch, making certain that I didn’t miss anything. With my headlamp on full blaze, I illuminated all of the dark areas down below and kept a watchful eye for the missing ring even in places where I was not able to metal detect. Still, I came up with nothing.

After about an hour and 45 minutes, I decided to move around to the other side of the bushes and start metal detecting from the lawn in towards the dense forest of shrubs! Looking straight at the porch from the grass, I started at the far right side which would have been on the extreme right side of where the couple was drinking their wine on that dreadful evening when the ring disappeared. I like to start outside the box and end up outside of the same box where most people would consider the area too unrealistic to search when looking for the lost item. Quite often I discover that the ring ends up much farther than where the client thought to search which is why the client never was able to find what he / she was looking for.

I worked diligently, metal detecting the grounds beneath the bushes and within the branches above. I moved from the right side over to the left area, heading towards the front of the house. Again, I found some of the children’s play things and homemade crafts, as well.

I got to a point in the search where I was about 15 feet away from the porch on a diagonal angle through the bushes with my feet just touching the grass. I had my body slightly leaning forward into the shrubs. The particular area of bushes that I was detecting was so far away from where the couple was sitting, (which would have made it probably around 20 feet in total) that no one in their right mind could conceive the thought that the ring had a chance of making it through 15 feet of thick bushes and then settle just inches away from the clearing where the grass began on the other side. Well, to my greatest surprise, that’s exactly what happened! My detector gave me a very intriguing signal, indicating that there was a potential target just underneath one of the bushes next to the clearing of the flower bed. I leaned down to inspect the area where the detector was picking up the signal. Just as I was putting my pinpointer in the region where the metal was located, my eyes locked on to the most beautiful diamond wedding band! It was wedged up against the trunk of one of the bushes in plain sight! I was beyond amazed at how that ring rocketed that far through all of the dense shrubs, almost clearing the entire bed! It seems like the moment that I think I’ve seen it all, there’s something else that blows my mind and this was clearly another example of such a moment!

I was so happy to have found Kelly’s missing wedding band and I was even more excited to surprise the family with it shortly after I solved the mystery of where that beloved ring had ended up! Kelly and Jim could not have been more thrilled and relieved that I had successfully recovered their beloved sentimental piece of gold and gorgeous diamonds! They too had their minds blown away when I showed them the exact spot of where that ring settled to the ground after their son innocently caused the rings to jettison from the porch table!

After I shared my findings with the family, we all celebrated with the most delicious homemade cookies that Kelly had made earlier that day! I was then given the grand tour of their lovely home that they were about to say goodbye to.

Now that I had found one of the couple’s most precious belongings that had gone mysteriously missing for over a week, Jim and Kelly were finally emotionally ready to start packing for their journey down south to Florida!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Springfield, Virginia…Found

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

John’s 14 Karat Gold Wedding Band

John’s Missing Wedding Band Shining its Handsome Gold Once Again!

Rachel and John Smiling with Great Relief that the Irreplaceable Gold Wedding Band was Safely Returned to the Hand of its Owner!

CALL BRIAN RUDOLPH WITH THE RING FINDERS AT (301) 466-8644 AND HE WILL RETURN TO YOU WHAT HAS BEEN LOST!

I received an email from a woman named Rachel who was contacting me on behalf of her husband, John, who lost his gold wedding band in the backyard of their home in Springfield, Virginia. He, his father and brother were all working on a construction project on the day of the disappearance of the ring. At the end of one of their project days, John was putting away some of his tools and upon taking off his gloves, he noticed that his ring was no longer on his finger. He was pretty certain that the wedding band was somewhere in the yard or near the rear entrance to his house. There was a small chance that the band fell off of his finger inside the home, but less likely. With much confidence he recalled seeing the ring on his finger at the beginning of the day when his family members assisted him in building a garage towards the back of his property. By the end of their hard labor, towards evening time, John noticed that the wedding band was gone. He searched and searched but John could not find his beloved keepsake anywhere. He and his wife Rachel raked up plenty of leaves and threw them into a fire pit, hoping to capture the little guy. Yet, their clever attempt eventually failed, as well. I believe the family even tried to locate the ring using a metal detector, but that too lead to no avail.

 

When all other options were exhausted, and hours upon hours of searching ended up in wasted time, Rachel looked online for further help. This is when THE RING FINDERS would come to the rescue! Rachel found me on the directory and immediately sent me an email sharing what had happened with the loss of her husband’s wedding band. I immediately responded back and eventually we had a conversation on the phone, reviewing all of the details. It was soon after that that we scheduled a time for me to come out later that evening to attempt to recover the missing wedding band for John.

 

By the time I arrived at John and Rachel’s property, night had fallen. I would not be hindered at all by the late hour that I was starting the search because I always carry all of the necessary night gear to work at any hour of night. I met Rachel at her front door and eventually she introduced me to John, his father and also his brother who were all working diligently on the construction project in the backyard. They had special floodlights fastened to the 2 x 4 support beams, along with all kinds of table saws and power tools that were spread out over their large work environment.

 

John showed me all of the places that he had been doing construction work and yard clean-up. He would take pieces of wood that were no longer needed for the project and toss the scraps to one side of the lawn. He also bundled up bags of weeds and leaves and tossed them to one of the corners of the property. He showed me the various places where he was walking to and from the house, along with the areas where he was working with power tools near the construction site. When he realized that he had lost the ring, he started raking leaves and then tossing them into the fire pit which had a metal grid base at the bottom so that the ring, if found, would be discovered somewhere on the grid. However, as shared earlier, the ring was never found. He took me to the pit and showed me where all of the leaves were thrown into the center of his clever invention.

 

I would say the backyard was about 35 yards by 25 yards. Pretty much every corner and side of the yard could be a possibility as to where the ring ended up. The one positive bit of information that I acquired was that the family never had the weeds or leaves picked up by the recycling truck! I asked them to make sure that no throwaway items ended up in front of the house (which included trash, as well) until the recovery efforts were completed.

 

Once we finished the backyard tour, John returned to working on his construction project with his family members while I geared up and started my search. First, I started a grid line on the far right side of the backyard and continued moving in straight lines in a 10 by 25 foot area. I was picking up all kinds of signals, but nothing came up on the surface as being a men’s classic wedding band. I looked through various places that John had taken me to but the ring still did not turn up.

 

During the three hour search, I checked out all of the possible spots where John’s ring could have fallen off of his finger and it still could not be found. At that point, I knew that I needed to start searching in sections that John had not introduced me to when we took the stroll around the property. I chose new areas close by to where he had discarded various items that he had no longer needed for his project. I then searched a debris pile of leaves and weeds that were taken from one area to another. As I covered those leftover possibilities around the backyard, I could hear and view the three gentlemen working very hard in hammering nails into the partially finished garage. We all had a purpose back there in the yard that evening, and my mission was to get that ring back onto John’s finger which I was determined to do so!

 

In those few hours that I had been detecting, I had meticulously covered almost every section of the real estate, checking and rechecking every possible target signal that was made available to me. At that point, I had only one more spot to check out before I had to make a decision as to whether I should start new grids and re-cover all of the territory that I had previously searched earlier or call it a night and return to the property in the next day or two to resume the search.

I can’t tell you how many times I find the client’s ring in the very last possible area that is left for me to check. I hear this from other detectorists all the time. At the very last movement on the clock, before time runs out, all of a sudden, the item turns up! That’s exactly what happened in this case! My last spot to go over was located adjacent to the construction project but farthest away from the main house. I started a very small grid search between the neighbor’s fence and where the concrete edge of the newly constructed garage was located. It probably was a section no more than 10 feet by 20 feet. By the time I resolved to search that final uncharted spot, the men had already turned in for the night. So, I was now all alone out there, hoping to pull this ring in my final search spot.

Just as I was completing my final pass of the grid, I got an excellent signal that was extremely shallow and it had a bit of a bounce to the tone that I was hearing in my headphones. The Minelab Equinox 800 that I was using gave me a solid number on the screen (I will post the VDI number after reviewing the video), which was in the range of numbers that I was looking for for this yellow 14 karat gold wedding band. I got down on my knees and lowered the detector and placed it to one side. Then, I pulled out my pinpointer and examined the target area.

Immediately, as my fingers moved through the blades of grass and leaves, I saw the yellow gold wedding band peeping out from below! I found it at last! It was a few feet away from the edge of the newly constructed concrete foundation that the men had laid in the last month or so. John must have taken off his gloves nearby and the ring bounced on to the concrete floor, and then rolled off into the grass. I was so excited! This was the very last section that I could check before I needed to start all over again and re-cover my steps. I couldn’t be happier for John and for Rachel, as well!

After metal detecting for several hours and then finally the hidden treasure is discovered, it’s all worth the diligent efforts and countless potential targets that were investigated over all of that time! I was wearing a very happy smile on my face as I took some pictures and packed up my gear before revealing the good news to John and Rachel! Believe me, the couple was beyond excited to learn that John would be

wearing his wedding band soon enough… as soon as it was resized to fit his ring finger again!

Metal Detector Rental White Rock BC

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Most people will rent or buy a metal detector to find their lost ring. The only thing is if you’ve never used one you will have a slim chance in finding your ring. The members and myself from TheRingFinders.com have many years of experience and the know how…This search today didn’t need the use of the detector…How many people who would have rented a detector would have found this ring? One thing we all do is think out of the box. Lynn was shaking a towel over her balcony when her 2 rings flew off her finger…

She found one ring in the small rocks very quickly. No need for a metal detector for that ring…But where did the second ring go? Maybe into the garden/rhododendron bushes but it would have been an easy eye ball search. I asked Lynn if there was a chance the ring could have slipped off finger in the house? She question herself and went inside to look. I stood there and thought… one ring fell on the rocks and why not the second ring?

Just then I notice a dip alongside of the foundation of the house, the rocks  sunk into the ground in a very small area so I took a knee and had a look and BINGO there was the ring! I was so happy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to surprise Lynn, I have the greatest job in the world! I get to make people smile!
