Tungsten Wedding Band Found! Ramsay Heights Edmonton Alberta

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

Roger e-mailed me yesterday asking if I could help him find his lost Tungsten wedding ring which he had lost last Friday while working to connect a cable line at a Condominium complex.

We arranged to meet this afternoon and Roger showed me the area that he was working at the time he lost his ring.  He told me that he had spent a couple of hours looking in the snow with no luck, so he googled “Lost Ring” and came across the TheRingFinders website and contacted me.  Within 30 minutes his ring was back on his finger.

Thank you Roger for contacting me to find your lost Ring.

Another happy client!

Lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen Ring… Found Iowa City, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received a call from Jim in early September about his lost Iowa Hawkeye Lettermen’s Ring. He graduated from the University of Iowa in 1972 and lettered in track and had the ring to prove it until Sept. 2nd.

He and his family went to the Hawkeye football opener in Iowa City on Sept. 2nd. It was a hot sunny Iowa afternoon and Jim applied some sunscreen before the game and isn’t sure but later he thought he might have placed his ring on top of his car while applying the sunscreen and then forgot it.

He realized during the game that his ring was missing and of course they looked for it but couldn’t find it. On the way home his son was sitting in the backseat and heard something rattling around on top of the car. When he looked out the back window he thought he saw something gold hit the pavement and then go in the ditch. So he told Jim to stop he thought it was his ring that fell off the car.

They borrowed a metal detector and searched for 2 hours and didn’t find it. Later that week he found me online and contacted me and we met the next Sat. at the location. We had five of us searching with two metal detectors for over four hours and didn’t find it.

I went back on Sunday the next day for almost 3 hours and didn’t come up with it. For any of you who have attempted to search a road ditch you know how brutal it can be. There is always so much trash and the weeds are high, plus the traffic is distracting.

I had prior commitments and work for the next month of weekends but I finally made it back out there on Oct. 15th. I switched to my 6 inch coil to get through the weeds easier and separate through the trash. After an hour and a half I got a good signal next to a buried pop can and I found it!!

Here is a short video of the recovery

Lost Diamond Platinum engagement ring found in Norridge, Il

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-774-5445

Got a call this morning telling me a engagement ring given 50yrs ago was lost in a yard, but it was lost in June. This was a concern knowing now it would not be a surface find anymore but have to give it a shot, I planned on being there most of the morning.

I was quite surprised when my very first signal was about 2 inches deep and pulled out this beautiful platinum wedding ring, not to mention how surprised the husband was.

He walked away crying when I showed it to him.

This is what makes this job fantastic!!!

Lost Wedding Band Found In Langley, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I got a call from a young man asking if I could help him find his lost wedding band. What I didn’t know was he lost his wedding band 24 hours after he was married. When I arrived at his parents place he told me the story how he came to find out that his ring was gone at the end of the day. The thing was he didn’t know exactly where the ring had fallen off his finger.

He said that he was playing ping pong in the back yard and was doing a few other things in the yard that day. It was a big yard and it took me 2 hours to do a cross grid search, with no luck. I asked if he had checked his car and he said he vacuumed and checked it inside out but no ring. It was looking like it would have to be in his parents house but for some reason I felt like I needed to check the car as in my experience rings have a way of finding hiding spots.

After 2 minutes of search the car and under the passengers seat I caught a glimpse of his ring in a little hiding spot for the seat motor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I believe if I didn’t check the car it would have been there for a very long time…If I had started the car first it would have been a fast recovery!!

Doesn’t have to be big to mean a lot to you.
Received a call , when lost a diamond earring while cutting the grass.
Right off the bat I had 2 concerns, first concern was it was an earring (very small target), second concern she was cutting the grass.
Sometimes you just need a little luck.

Lost Tiffany Silver Necklace, Found Kits Beach.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

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)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

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!

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

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

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!
