from Newark (Ohio, United States)

I received an email about her daughter losing her Gold Diamond Engagement Ring a couples of days before in the neighbors yard. Herself with the help of the neighbors, they searched and looked for the ring with no luck. Her daughter was very emotional over the lost of her ring. I searched the area and there was the ring hiding under the blades of grass in the yard. She was very very happy that the ring was found. Her daughter was very happy also as she stopped by after being discharge from having her newborn the day before. Over all I was able the make the impossible, the possible in finding the ring for them. God Bless them and the newborn!

Lost Tiffany Silver Necklace, Found Kits Beach.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Thanks to an anonymous person who contacted a lady on the craigslist in regards to my service, I was able to help her find her lost silver Tiffany necklace that was gifted to her by her mother.

It was a bit of a longshot because the necklace was lost for three days on a very popular beach where everyone metal detects. The other factor was it was lost by a log, and everyone searches the logs. I was a little nervous that someone may have already found the necklace.

We met that evening and I told the young lady the bad news that due to the time that had passed the necklace may have been found already. That being said  I was excited to start the search and I was very hopeful that the necklace was still there.

Within 5 minutes at about 4 inches down I received a soft signal and there it was in my scoop! I was as excited as she was to see it…If it’s there I’ll find it.

Sapphire & Diamonds 18k White Gold Wedding Ring Found Near Coal Creek… Bellevue, WA!!!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

Diamonds and sapphires in white gold!

I got a call from Randy who lost his ring sometime last month while driving to a jobsite. Apparently he had removed his ring and put it into a cup (with some liquid) in his console. Sometime later, he forgot it was in there and he tossed the contents out the window as he was driving around the bend to one of his worksites!!!

Luckily Randy remembered seeing a Ringfinders Facebook post that featured my previous find and looked me up! He remembered the turn on the road and gave me a general area to look for his ring.

I searched the side of the road for some time… After gridding the area he pointed out, I extended my search area. He was close in proximity but it was a bit further than he remembered. I found it! A beautiful white gold ring with some really cool sapphires and diamonds!

Roadside Recovery!

Vacaville Backyard Yields up Lost Neil Lane Diamond Ring after Missing for a Week!

from San Francisco (California, United States)

b

They were partying on Friday night and somehow she lost her wedding ring in the back yard. Reality set in the next morning, “OMG, where’s my ring?”. He vaguely remembered her tossing it out the back door, but that was it. Frantic, they searched and searched the 30×50′ backyard day after day. He even rented a metal detector for a day. No luck.

Fortunately, when she texted me a few days later asking about my recovery rate, I had a business meeting in nearby Fairfield that Friday, and agreed to search after my meeting.

I arrived about 3PM and it was still 110 degrees outside. It had been a week, and morale in the home was poor. She was feeling really lousy about losing her ring, he was at the end of his wits. I was their last hope.

She showed me the matching platinum engagement band. I scanned it, dialed in my trusty AT-Pro and began a careful grid search of the back yard with the husband. Then we searched the side neighbor’s yard, found a 14k gold angel pendant and returned it the neighbor, who was very grateful, searched the other neighbor’s back yard, found nothing, and then returned to his backyard for a cross grid search. When you are out of options, always cross grid search.

After three excruciating hours in the sun, the clients had completely given up and I was suffering mild heat exhaustion. But on my final cross grid pass, right outside their back door, I got the signal I had been searching for! Boom!!!

Her exquisite Neil Lane platinum nesting engagement band, and diamond wedding ring, turned out to be very expensive. She was “over the moon” to have it back together. It made their Labor Day Weekend all the more relaxing, and a smooth return their happy marriage.

My recovery rate is is about 95% if the object is still there in the area. Don’t wait a week to call a pro!

Class ring found after loosing over a year ago

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)

Got a call, she lost a small class ring about a year ago in a private volleyball court.

Found out the sand base was about 20″ deep so brought a large coil to punch down deep.

After being told it was lost a year ago I honestly did not have great hope of finding but still thought it was worth a try.  (never give up)

After only about 15min of searching I hit something very deep and found it.

 

Her smile says it all.

Heirloom Gold Cross Recovered at Tunitas Creek Beach, Half Moon Bay, CA

from San Francisco (California, United States)

It was William and best friend Irv’s, 4th trip back to Tunitas Creek Beach to look for his cross. It had belonged to his Lebanese uncle and been in the family for generations. Lost while playing football on the previous Saturday, the family treasure remained elusive after three searches, first in the dead of night with a $100 metal detector, and then two trips with a rented Whites. lack of experience detecting, and unfamiliarity with detectors themselves, left them frustrated and tired; so they decided to bring in a pro.

It’s a 20 minute hike to the beach through some rough brush and missing trail. There were people living there. It was a little spooky even in the daytime.  I was surprised  the boys had hiked it at night with only their cellphone lights.

But its worth the hike because Tunitas Creek has a really big beautiful white sandy beach, with big cliffs and verdant greenery around a small bay. They led me to an area out in the middle of that big white beach, where they thought they had been playing.

I stuck a stick in the ground as a point of reference and began a systematic grid search, dragging my feet in the sand in a 6′ wide lawnmower pattern. After 15 minutes, I was getting no signals , not even trash signals, as this remote beach, I happily discovered, is very clean.

So moments later, when my trusty Garrett AT-Pro went off with a solid gold hit, William got his cross back.

William and his faithful friend Irv, with his priceless family heirloom, on beautiful Tunitas Creek Beach, Half Moon Bay, CA.

Willam and Irv learned that sometimes it’s just smarter to call a pro, the sooner, the better!

Lost gold ring found back in May near Reading

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

I recovered this gold ring after and extensive search of a garden near Reading, the compost pile had been scanned along with all the beds and under every bush etc. At first I hit a signal but it was too deep but I had to investigate as you do. This was a real bonus as out popped a lovely silver ring the the gents wife was very fond of so she kept it. Sorry but no pictures for this one.

A few hours later while searching in the vegetable patch I found the rather large gold ring! A very happy Professor!

Lost Platinum & Diamond Earring Found In Woodinville, WA!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)

“Undetectable” Diamond & Platinum Earring Recovered… Just Barely!

Today’s recovery was for a lady who lost her impressive diamond stud earring while staining her deck a few days ago. She at some point took off her dust mask which probably caught her earring and flung it off into the unknown! She noticed the back landed in between the boards, and then realized her loss.

After her and her husband scoured the yard, and squeezed under the deck to look for it, they tried renting a metal detector. They found out quickly, though, stud earrings are very hard to detect because they contain so little actual metal. In fact, their rental unit could not even detect it when they passed it over the 2nd earring.

I had confidence that at least one of my machines should be able to outperform this rental unit and headed out with all 3. After testing on the other earring, I was pretty surprised to find my 2 most expensive detectors would not detect this target!

My least expensive unit did, but just a barely audible sound would come through, and only occasionally. I started getting pretty nervous that this hunt would be unsuccessful.

To make matters worse, the lawn area around the deck was littered with nails from the sloppy contractor who built it. I was getting a pretty sinking feeling, but I was determined to at least try. Many nails were pulled out of the ground, so I could concentrate on the whisper that the earring MIGHT give me.

Somehow, someway, I managed to pass over a quiet target and it was the earring! We were both so amazed and relieved, and glad that I have a few types of machines in my arsenal!

So little metal to detect!
