A young couple who became engaged on Christmas were completely devastated after an evening walk in North Toronto went horribly bad . Snow had accumulated in their neighborhood to about 6 inches buy that evening. The couple explained while brushing snow off with her hand the young bride to be felt her diamond engagement ring fly off and into the surrounding snow banks which were about 1 foot deep. Hours of searching on hand and knee digging through the cold snow was all in vain and they couldn’t find the precious ring. The young lady could not hold back the tears and the couple were devastated knowing they had no insurance on the expensive ring.

A very common thing for newly engaged young couples! I will often encourage them to add these precious items to their home insurance and also have a jeweler inscribe a name and possibly contact info inside the valuable ring. Most jewelers can do this for a very nominal fee and it is well worth the cost if found by someone else.

After a couple of days the husband in desperation started googling lost Rings and of course came across The Ring Finders web site and my contact info.
Once the young man contacted me I immediately made my way there. Just coming off a successful under water ring find in the Niagara region of Ontario I felt time was of the essence for this recovery.

Once a ring has been lost in a public area especially along a city sidewalk, the clock is ticking down and its only a matter of time before someone else eventually finds it .

Unfortunately I have arrived to the same type of scenario where the person who out of desperation posted signs that a ring was lost in the area. I’ve also seen posted signs with a photo of the ring, detailed description of it and where it was lost! The sign had a diagram of almost the precise location to where the ring is laying. Basically advertising to the not so honest among us FREE RING CHECK HERE👇.

Not a good idea at all! Luckily this couple found Ring Finders onliner. Once I arrived we had one big problem, the electrical transformer box and it was not much more than 3 feet away from where the ring came off in the snow. When it comes to any metal detector if you’re too close to electronic interference you will hear it big time on your detector. However a neighborhood transformer is the worst kind of interference possible. Being so close to such a large amount of interference will cause multiple sounds even at the lowest set discrimination on the detector. Truthful the detector sounded like a Las Vegas slot machine hitting the jackpot on New Year’s eve. I was worried!

However myself and many other Ring Finders on this site are highly skilled and trained having experience with this type of situation. A trained ear and knowing the sound of gold amongst all those bad signals on a is key in this type of recovery.
I grid the area quickly and only after a few minutes in between all the chaotic chirps, beeps and tones a familiar tone coming from beneath snow. Jackpot!

The white flakes and tears kept falling for a few minutes after I pulled out the georgous ring. However this time they were tears of joy and the young couple were again reunited with their beautiful diamond ring.

Lost Ring In Loyalsock State Forest Lycoming County PA…………….Found

from New Albany (Pennsylvania, United States)
Contact: 1-570-916-2617

Recently Ed contacted me to find a wedding ring lost during a family hiking trip. Ed had removed his white gold wedding ring and it was safely placed in a zippered pocket in his daughters backpack. When Ed and his family arrived at their home they discovered the zippered compartment was partially unzipped and the ring was gone. Somewhere during the 27 mile hike the ring had fallen out and was feared lost forever. I asked Ed for all the details of the hike including stops and campsites along the trail. He provided me with maps, photos and all the details he could remember. He had it narrowed down to 7 miles of trail that included 2 campsites and several stops along the trail. I was eager for the challenge but I was thinking to myself just how long does it take to swing a metal detector loop over seven miles of trail? My wife Traci and I studied the information including satellite images of the trail. We decide that the most likely spot for the ring to have fallen out was when the back packs were being loaded into the car for the trip home. The next day as soon as the kiddos were on the school bus we started loading our gear for the long trip to the Loyalsock State Forest. Upon arriving we parked at the opposite end of the parking lot from where Ed had parked. I did a quick sweep of the area where Ed had parked and only had a couple trash signals. I then started a grid search an during my third pass I got a gold signal with my MX Sport. I looked down and could see a thin silver circle resembling a key ring. I started shaking as I popped the 14k white gold wedding band from the mud. I hurried over to Traci and dropped the ring into her hand. She said “You found it already”! After comparing the ring to the example photo Ed had sent, we knew our work there was done. Including unloading our gear the entire search had taken less than half an hour! I texted Ed later that evening with the good news and a couple days later the ring was back on his hand where it belonged. This whole adventure provided smiles all around. Now in a couple months when Ed and his wife celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary I bet there will be even more smiles . Traci and I really enjoyed finding this treasure and making sure it got back home.

Lost Tiffany 2.5 carats Solitare & Diamond Earring Recovered in Corte Madera Town Park, Marin County, Corte Madera, California 94925

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

It was a beautiful sunny say and she was just sitting in the grass relaxing when her young son ran up and tackled her. As she fell back on the ground, she felt her son’s sleeve tug against her left ear. She reached up and felt that here diamond stud was no longer there. Wizely, she froze, and marked the spot with some sticks. She also looked around very carefully and took bearings from nearby buildings and trees, so that she could relocate that exact spot.

The husband was a little stressed out and after they searched for several hours, a friend found my number at THERINGFINDERS.com and called me. I met her in Corte Madera Town Part about 10am the next morning. It was a another sunny day. She showed me the exact spot where she had been bowled over by her son. I stuck my shovel in the ground and began a spiral search pattern. She tried to read a book but kept glancing over every time I bent over to check a target. After about 45 excruciating minutes I finally located her magnificent 2.5 total carats diamond earring about 12 feet from the starting point. The earring had flown about 12 feet in the air.

Needless to say she was ecstatic. Unfortunately I was unable to also locate the backing for the earring. But she gave up on that idea very easily. She will have the backings changed to the screw type.

Happy Camper!

Another marriage put back on track!

Diamond Wedding Rings Lost in the Ocean at Sanibel Island . . . Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

imageimageimage
Therese was enjoying her vacation at Sanibel with her husband Lewie until her diamond and gold wedding ring set fell off her hand ino the gulf water at Lighthouse Beach.  Shorly thereafter my wife and I received the desperate phone call from Therese asking for our assistance in locating the rings.

Because we already had another ring find call scheduled, we made arrangements to come to the island for a quick meeting to get an idea as to the location and area of where the rings were thought to have been lost.  After a short meeting, we promised to come back to that location later in the evening after we were finished with the previously scheduled appointment.

About 10:30 that evening, we arrived back on Sanibel Island ready to do our search. A few hours passed and no rings.  Another search the next morning finally proved to be successful.  The missing rings were found!

Because Therese and Lewie had already boarded a flight back to their home state, they didn’t get the news until later in the day.  Words cannot describe how excited we all were.  Arrangements were made to overnight the rings back to Therese so she could be reunited with the rings that belong on her hand.  Her smile in the photo says it all!  We are so happy we could be a part of another successful ring find!

Lost Tiffany Pave Diamond Anniversary Ring Recovered in Mill Valley, California 94941

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

This brilliant couple recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. Bravo for them. After a very pleasant dinner one night, Marylisa and Godfrey were happily clearing the table, when they accidentally knocked her ring off the high counter, where it started rolling across the floor and went straight out the back door, into the darkness.

Outside the back door is a wooden causeway to the back deck. The ring could have gone right and down a steep dirt embankment, straight and through the openings in the deck, or left into the garden.

I searched all under the deck, on a difficult steep dirt bank with low head clearance. I then searched father down the right bank in heavy brush. With Godfrey’s help, we dug out an old rotten stump that it could have fallen into. After about an hour of fruitless searching, we took a break and had a cool drink with Marylisa on the deck. They are very fun, goodhearted people. Recovering after a pleasant break, I got up, walked over to the garden on the left side of the causeway and found the ring sitting in the garden.

Nothing beats success. Marylisa was extremely relieved and Godfrey was beside himself. Another marriage saved, hopefully for another 10 happy years!

In an amazing coincidence, later that same day, I ran into their daughter and friends and the Sand Dollar Restaurant in Stinson Beach, CA. They had already heard the whole story of the recovery! It was a fun afternoon at the Sand Dollar.
