Man’s Gold Wedding Band Found and Returned Litchfield Beach, SC.

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I received a phone call from Brett Wednesday morning about his lost wedding band. He had lost his ring the afternoon before. I was on my way to a job site, so I told him I would meet him in a few hours. I asked him if he was in “the dog house”. “Maybe a little”!

Meeting up with Brett that afternoon, he explained his wedding band loss. He had taken his ring off to put on sun screen. He placed the gold band inside of the baby shade tent and had forgotten about it. At the end of the day they carried their belonging up to the beach house. As Brett was returning to the beach to retrieve the shade tent a gust of wind sent the tent tumbling down the beach. He caught up with the tent 40 yards away. This was when he remembered his wedding band. There were a couple families camped out inside the search area but a small space around the tent location was available to swing the coil. I was really hoping that the ring was in this 10 yard area. Right before I put my head phones on I asked Brett if he wanted to bet money on finding this ring in 10 minutes of less. “I like your confidence” was his reply. As I started the grid search Brett had gone over to the other people sitting under their shade canopy and was explaining to them what was going on. Only a minute and a half  had passed when I walked over to him and held out the sand scoop so he could pluck his wedding band from the bottom. Everybody present cheered in disbelief. I could see stress instantly come off of Brett’s shoulders as he placed the wedding band back on his finger. The same band that his wife Rochelle placed on his finger a few years before. Rochelle and family cheered from the balcony of the beach house as Brett held up his hand in a triumphant gesture.

Brett and Rochelle, thank you for your trust in The Ring Finders, and again for the generous reward.

Found Man’s Yellow Gold Wedding Band, Returned, Litchfield Beach

  • from Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

I received a referral call from Jim Wren Wednesday afternoon. The lost ring was south of his location by 45 miles.  I am 20 mile closer, thus Jim’s referral. I called Mukul  to start the process of the standard questions, where, when and how. Mukul lost his ring in hip deep water about an hour before high tide earlier in the day. I told him to meet me at the beach location in a couple hours to let the tide recede some.

I met Mukul, his wife Rima and son Tanu at the beach. Tanu was concerned that mom and dad were no longer married since dad lost his ring. The family walked me out to the location. Mukul insisted the ring was in a 20 yard square area in kneed deep water, just to the south side of a set of stairs coming off the dunes. I grid searched the area, then cross grid, then cross grid again out to waist deep water. Mukul pointed more south. Expanding the area twice more with no ring, i decided to start expanding north. About 30 yards north of the original grid I got the signal I wanted to hear. I kicked the scoop of sand with my foot and out popped Mukul’s yellow gold wedding band. He had not noticed me dig the ring, so I walked over and started telling him it was nearly dark, I was wet and cold and after 2 plus hours of searching I was ready to quit. Through this whole process he is looking at the water and not at me as I am holding his ring up for him to see. He finally noticed that I was holding his precious wedding band. Mukul’s ring is back on his finger as the family travels home to Georgia. Another happy ending. Being a hero (using the term loosely) is why it is so personally rewarding doing these ring searches. ‘Til next time.


White Gold Diamond Ring Lost in the Sand in Litchfield, SC. Found and Returned

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Rhonda called me about 8:30 pm saying I had been referred to her by the Minelab Distributor in the area, and was hopeful I could help find one of her lost rings. She said that she had lost 5 rings in the sand after she had taken them off to apply sun tan lotion. She went on to say, that her and her boyfriend had found 4 of the 5 but couldn’t find her diamond ring. She was wondering when I might be available to help look for it. I don’t like waiting to do a ring search because too many things could happen between the time of loss and me getting there to search. So, I told her I’d be there in about 30 minutes, got the address, grabbed my detector and was on the road.

I called her when I got there and she met me in the parking lot. We walked out to the beach and luckily she knew exactly where the area was that the ring was lost. I think it took longer for the detector to turn on and me to get ready then it did to find her ring. She put me dead on the spot, 3 swings and I got the tone, looked at the numbers on the detector and saw the 9/10 and knew I had white gold. I took a small scoop of sand, checked the hole to make sure I had her ring and searched the scoop. I very gently pulled her beautiful diamond ring out of my scoop. She was a little shocked that it turned up so quickly. A great happy ending to their vacation.

Rhonda, thank you so much for trusting me to find your lost treasure. Have a safe trip home.


Man’s 3ct Gold Wedding Band Lost in the Surf, Found and Returned Litchfield, SC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

Damond called me at 10:30 p.m. telling me he lost his ring and wanted to know if I could help. He went on to say he was on his knees in the surf, and was playing with his 4 year old son when he felt his ring slip off his finger at about 7 p.m. He also said that he tried to grab it but it quickly sank out of sight, and he’d been out there searching for it. I got the location and told him I was on my way, and would be there in 45-50 minutes.

This was a gated resort so I had to wait until Damond showed up at the gate to get me in. I followed him down to the beach and got the details on the ring and the area he lost it in, which was a good 50 ft. by 50 ft. I first started a north/south grid line but with an outgoing tide I changed to an east/west and started in the middle of his suspected area.  One thing I’ve found pretty true to form is that most people go to the right when they enter the beach area, and this case was no different. I made about 5 or 6 passes and got a booming signal. One scoop and I had the target out of the hole. I spread the sand out with my foot, turned on my head lamp and saw the ring shining in the light. I was expecting a gold wedding band and when I picked up the ring it was “oh my God!!!” Damond was sitting on the beach access stairs when I called him down to the low tide line. I asked him to describe his ring, and then held it up and asked, “Does it look like this?” He couldn’t contain his excitement, and started doing the happy dance. I got a big bear hug. Awesome feeling!! After it was back on his finger, he told me that his wife had gotten it for him for father’s day and it had a lot of sentimental value, and I could see why. He also told me I saved the family vacation.

Damond, thank you for trusting me to find your treasure, it was truly my pleasure. Best of luck to you and your family.
