I received a text message from Anthony inquiring whether or not I still recover lost items for people during the Covid-19 pandemic. I texted the potential client and told him that not only was I active in search and recovery operations, but that I had just recovered a lovely wedding band for someone the day before he contacted me. Anthony then went on to share what happened to his wife’s heart pendant:

“My wife lost her Tiffany Sterling Silver charm in our yard last week while we were doing yard work. I know the exact 100 foot stretch of grass that it’s located in, but the grass is so tall that I have not been able to find it. Please let me know if this is something you can help with. We are located in Columbia, Maryland.”

I responded, “I would love to recover the charm for your beloved.”

Anthony and Kristina found my information on the elite metal detectorist website called THE RING FINDERS. He learned that I provide professional metal detecting services in the Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware areas. Anthony continued to text me photos and a description of the lost piece of jewelry. He said it was a sterling silver heart charm that he gave to Kristina for their first anniversary during their college years 13 years ago! It was highly sentimental! Once again I told him that I would be happy to recover the charm for Kristina. I asked what his schedule was like for the next day and he said that they were both available. However, the weather was forecasted to be very rainy and Anthony wondered if that mattered to me. I responded back by telling him that it was not a problem at all and that I always come fully equipped with rain gear and metal detecting equipment that is fully waterproof. I explained that I work in the rain all the time. With that mentioned, Anthony was 100% on board with having me come out and start the pendant search for the couple.

The next day, I arrived at Kristina and Anthony’s Columbia, Maryland house. Yes, it was a nice drizzly day, but nothing that I couldn’t handle. I was just so charged up about helping this concerned couple that it didn’t matter to me in the least regarding the occasional downpour.

The day before the search, while Anthony and I were texting back and forth, he shared with me that he had attempted to recover the very sentimental keepsake with a cheap metal detector that he bought on Amazon a week prior. For 7 days, he unfortunately was getting too many false signals and not the object that he was hoping to find. I recommended to him that he return the detector and get his money back. So many people contact professional metal detectorists (like myself) after they have expended all of their money, time, and energy purchasing detectors that they don’t know how to use and equipment that just won’t get the job done. It literally takes hundreds of hours to learn and best acquaint oneself with a metal detector before he or she can be effective with their searches.

Anthony came out to greet me as the rain steadily fell. We walked to his backyard and he explained to me that he was completely confident that the pendant that his wife was wearing while doing yard work was not lost anywhere else but in the backyard. Kristina saw the broken chain still wrapped around her neck but the pendant was missing. She too was certain that she had never walked towards the sides or front of their property.

Anthony pointed to his shed and showed me where he and Kristina had carried bales of hay towards portions of the yard after they had laid down grass seed in various places. Once I took into account all of the spots where they walked and worked, I set up my detector in order to locate a sterling silver-type target and then got on my way with the search. I used my Equinox 800 machine along with my 15 inch coil for this particular hunt.

Slowly and carefully I started my first gridline across the lawn, about 25 feet away from the couple’s house. I swung the coil from east to west until I got within inches of the foundation. I then carefully detected the sections near the flowerbeds where the grass seed was laid down and where the hay was placed on top of the surface. I still did not pick up any potential targets that alerted me to something that might be sterling silver. All of my gridlines took no more than 25 minutes or so to complete that particular parameter on the lawn. Once I was done with the 25 by 100 foot grid area, I didn’t feel comfortable moving to another section before re-examining the grass where Kristina had been walking. So, before moving on to another part of the lawn to detect, I decided to widen the search zone a little bit closer to the property line where Anthony and Kristina’s neighbor’s yard began.

Just as I started a new grid line on the very edge of my client’s property, I got a very encouraging target signal that was definitely registering a target that could potentially be sterling silver. Indeed, it was close to the surface, if not on top of the earth, and the tone came out pretty strong through the headphones. I knelt down to see what this target was all about. Then, I took out my pinpointer to zero-in on exactly where this target was lying. All of a sudden, my eyes locked in on what the pinpointer was detecting between the blades of grass. There was a silver looking piece of jewelry laying upon the dirt below! I found it! It was the heart pendant! I was beyond thrilled at that moment as my eyes read the inscription: “Always and Forever…Tiffany and Company 925”!

Anthony was the first one to learn of the successful recovery of Kristina’s pendant. He was beyond excited with the news and equally surprised as to where I found the very sentimental item! Anthony went inside to share the happy moment with Kristina and I witnessed her beautiful excitement that was simply off the charts! Her beautiful piece of silver was finally returned to her hands! I was so happy for the couple, and the two of them were just as grateful for their decision to reach out to me and request my help! Yes, it was certainly another happy search ending!

Newlywed Husband Loses Wife’s Sterling Silver Wedding Band…Found Near Columbia, Maryland Pool

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Peyton’s 925 Sterling Silver Wedding Band with Colorful Stones

James Breathes a Sigh of Relief Holding Peyton’s Wedding Ring…Found! 

Peyton’s Lost Sterling Silver Wedding Band Found by The Ring Finders Brian Rudolph

 

I was vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland when I received an email from a young man named James who was desperate to find his wife’s missing wedding ring.  He found my metal detecting service on the THE RING FINDERS website. James and his wife Peyton were hanging out by the community pool located near their apartment complex. Peyton thought to do the right thing and hand her wedding band to James to bring it back to the apartment so that there would not be a chance that it would go missing at the pool. Little did she know that the ring would disappear between the time that she gave it to her husband and the time that he got back to the apartment.

James was completely undone by the loss of his wife’s ring. Not just because she entrusted him with it, but because he had lost his own wedding band two months after they got married in December of 2018. He explained to me that before he lost his wife’s wedding band, it was the only remaining ring that was exchanged at their ceremony when they got married since he still could not find his own ring that went missing earlier in the year. He was hopeful that his ring would one day turn up because he thought it may still be somewhere in the apartment. However, it had been nearly eight months since they got married and he did not have the matching wedding band anymore and his wife’s ring was all that was left to remind them of the covenant that was made with rings last year.

 

The lovely keepsake that went missing was made of sterling silver along with three colorful stones set within the band. They chose the red, blue and green colors because they are both into video gaming and the stones represent the crystals that they hunted for in a particular game. It’s so wonderful to hear stories of how people pick out their rings or even how they design them out of a common interest between the two of them prior to getting married. This was a great example of that kind of commonality with this couple.

 

After I heard that James had lost his own wedding band and now he lost his wife’s wedding ring after giving it to him to keep it safe from being lost at the pool, I felt like I needed to stand in the gap, and like a faithful soldier, help out my fellow man who needed another warrior in the trenches to help rescue him out of his dire situation.

 

Since I was so far away from the couple’s Columbia, Maryland residence at the time that I was vacationing at the beach, I called another Ring Finder member in our directory in Baltimore, Maryland, but he was unable to help for a couple of days. So James desperately requested my help to see if I could search and recover the sterling silver wedding band of Peyton’s before someone else might stumble upon seeing it and “pocket it”. I agreed to help them and arranged to meet up with James and Peyton early the next morning.

 

I quietly left the hotel room sometime around 5:30 in the morning to start driving through the night to Columbia, Maryland over to where James and Peyton lived. It was a beautiful morning and it was so quiet with nobody on the road in that first hour behind the wheel. I don’t have a problem driving long distances because I just love God’s surroundings and there’s always something to think about or listen to on my phone or on the radio while I’m driving to my next search site. Besides, I was on a mission to rescue James from a really tough situation and to return something so precious to his wife who was really upset about not having her ring back.

 

I believe I arrived at their apartment community sometime around 8:30 a.m.. I met James and Peyton outside in the parking lot and after a few minutes of having a brief “meet-and-greet”, the three of us took a walk from the parking lot area over to where the pool was located. I wanted to start at the beginning where Peyton handed off the ring to James just prior to its disappearance.

 

Once we covered the pool area, we walked from the pool entrance, down a walkway to a longer sidewalk, which took us in the direction of where their apartment building was located. While we strolled along, James and his wife shared how he was holding not only the ring but some other things, as well, including a popsicle stick and wrapper. He believed that it was possible that he got distracted with holding the wrapper and the other items and the ring fell out of his hand while walking back to their place. I was concerned that perhaps if he disposed of the wrapper, the ring may have ended up in a trash receptacle, but I learned that he held onto the wrapper as he walked back to the apartment. This told me that the ring most likely was lost on the sidewalk or in the grass.

 

When we got back to the parking lot where I had first greeted the two of them, Peyton gave a hug goodbye to her husband and wished me the best in my search. At this point, I had a pretty good idea of the whole story and now it was time to start the metal detecting process. James had taken me over to where one enters his apartment building on the ground floor. He was concerned that perhaps the ring may have fallen out of his hands and landed somewhere to the left or to the right of the concrete slab just in front of his apartment complex. I metal detected around that area and there was no ring to be found over in that section. We then went over to a small grassy knoll that was very close to where I parked my vehicle. Upon asking him some additional questions regarding the most probable places where he may have lost the ring, I started metal detecting in those areas near and around the grassy knoll decline. The first spot was a patch of grass around a tree. I could not find anything there but some soda can pull tabs and a couple of coins. I knew exactly the target signal that I was looking for on my detector because James was very clear that what we were looking for was a sterling silver ring. We moved a little higher up onto the grassy knoll area and it took no more than a minute or so before the first signal hit my detector and it was exactly in the range of a sterling silver ring. I thought to myself, “It can’t be this easy”. I began to pinpoint below the grass line and as I looked carefully in between the hairs of grass, there it was, Peyton’s beloved sterling silver wedding band that had disappeared the day before! The whole search probably took less than 5 minutes from the time I turned my machine on until I discovered the missing ring! I was so thrilled for this couple in being able to recover the ring! I not only returned the wedding ring, but I also rescued James from the doghouse because he just could not end up losing both wedding bands in less than a year of their marriage! James was so excited and completely relieved that I was able to help return this ring into the hands that had once placed it on Peyton’s finger last December! He would now once again be able to place this ring on Payton’s hand with a huge smile and a very large sigh of relief! We high-fived, he gave me a big hug and we shared in our happiness together before he called his bride on the phone and told her the fantastic news! Peyton was beyond happy with the end result of my search efforts and the young lady expressed her sincere gratitude for what I was able to do to help find her precious wedding band!

 

This ring recovery truly wrapped itself up to my satisfaction, knowing that I had traveled three hours inland on my vacation to help a couple find something that meant so much to them and that I successfully discovered the missing ring and was able to return it to its happy owner! The whole experience brought me such a thrill in assisting the very sweet newlywed couple find Peyton’s wedding band and help to continue a story that started last December when the knot was tied between James and Peyton – man and wife – truly two game winners!

 

“Brian took time off of his vacation to help me find my wife’s wedding ring that I had dropped on the way back from the pool to make sure we didn’t lose it. He called me back within minutes of emailing him with my situation and said that he could come out the next morning and help me. He did exactly that and found my ring in under 10 minutes. We had 4 people looking for it in the same places but couldn’t find it without Brian’s metal detector and his expertise. It means so much to both of us that Brian was able to retrieve our original wedding ring. The experience was fun, easy, and efficient. Thank you, Brian! You’re the best! It’s hard to believe that there is such a nice, honest, kind and self-less person in the world that was able to help me with this problem”.

 – James and Peyton
