Gold anniversary ring lost, recovered and returned in Phoenixville, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received a Wednesday morning text from Felix who found me in the Ring Finder directory. I broke away from work and gave him a quick call to allow him to fill me in on the details of his wife’s lost ring. Apparently his wife, Kim, was at a community farm in Phoenixville, PA with her daughter the day before picking up her weekly veggie share. Felix told me both his wife and daughter saw the ring fall off her finger while they were picking and bagging their veggies. He shared that the area where it dropped was 4-6 inch high farm field grass and that both his wife and daughter spent hours searching for it with no success. I conveyed to him that I was quite confident I could find it for them and we agreed to meet at that farm at 5 pm later that same day.

I met kim at the farm and she showed the exact area where she felt and saw it come off her finger.  The area consisted of  rows of raised vegetable laden mounds each separated by 6 feet of 4-6 inch farm field grass. Kim knew exactly where the ring came off…even showed me the basil plant she had picked just prior to seeing her ring slip off. It fell off when she was putting the basil in a bag and she tried to catch it before it hit the ground. Her daughter saw the falling ring as well. She was amazed/surprised/concerned about not finding her beautiful white gold anniversary ring…she just figured she can’t see it in tall grass. At this point I’m figuring 3 minutes max…I’m going to find this thing! Well after 15 minutes of searching both sides of the basil mound and the basil mound itself I was starting to question whether it was actually there. I took my own gold ring off several times to check my equipment and convince kim that if I’m over it I’m not going to miss it.

Well after several passes of the area she was convinced the ring was I figured its time to expand the search area. I moved over an entire row to the adjacent grassy lane….maybe 15- 20 feet from where she was convinced it dropped and finally hear the beautiful signal I had been looking for. I hadn’t even bent over yet and the ring still wasn’t visible beneath the grass but I knew what it was! I gave Kim a big smile and bent down to part the grass…there was her big gorgeous ring! We laughed and high fived…she couldn’t believe how far it was from where she thought it fell. I truly live for the joy I brought her by putting that ring back in her possession!

Lost Ring Found with a metal detector in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania!

  • from Altoona (Pennsylvania, United States)

Brandon is smiling again!

The beautiful rings and necklace that was lost.

 

I got a call from Brandon on Sunday that his wife had lost her wedding rings and a necklace at the Moraine State Park Regatta near Pittsburgh, PA. She had been swimming in the lake with her nieces while Brandon was on the shore with their dog. When she came back to the blanket, she reached up to her neck where her rings and necklace had been. Brandon said she had a look of sheer terror when she realized the rings and necklace had come off somewhere in the water.

I met Brandon at the state park the next day. After getting permission at the park office to search the water, Brandon and I headed down to the water to start the hunt. I had my Garrett AT Pro metal detector and Brandon had his snorkeling gear as he wanted to join in on the search. The odds were stacked against us… There was a detectorist in the area who had just worked the beach and reports of someone searching the water earlier in the morning. The swimming area is murky and has a concrete base which made my sand scoop essentially useless and my metal detector sound like a screaming child in the grocery store (for the metal detecting enthusiasts, I turned down the sensitivity of the machine and notched out the signals from the rebar in the concrete, making only the gold range audible). Brandon was pretty sure his wife had lost the rings in waist deep water which reminded me I still need to get waterproof headphones, especially if I have to bend down to pick up a target.

After about 30 minutes of grid searching, I found the first ring. “Is this it?” I said to Brandon holding the ring high in the air. He looked over in amazement with a huge smile on his face. A minute later I found the second ring and the smiles kept coming. I told him necklaces were really hard to find but we would certainly try. We searched in the same area for about 5 minutes and I kept getting a faint signal in the waist deep water. I reached under the water with my pinpointer but to no avail- it wouldn’t pick up the signal. Finally I said to Brandon that the signal is right under my coil and if he could dive down and pull up scoops what little sand there was down there we may find it. After about three tries, he came up with the necklace in his hand. Some great teamwork had paid off.

I am truly grateful for having met such a genuine person as Brandon, and for The Ring Finders for bringing us together for the day. Literally one day after joining this group I was able to help someone. Many thanks!
