Lost Ring Found at Kailua Beach

  • from Waikīkī (Hawaii, United States)

I received a call from Scott Saturday morning asking if I rent metal detectors. I told him not anymore because it only takes a few minutes to find a ring if you know where you dropped it and it could take you a while to figure out how to use the type of metal detectors that I use, so he decided to meet me at Kailua Beach, and in a few minutes the ring was back on his finger.
Another happy customer!

White Gold and Platinum men’s wedding band lost on the beach at Fort Lauderdale Beach Florida Found and returned to owner.

  • from North Miami Beach (Florida, United States)

I got a call from a man Steven saying he lost his ring on Fort Lauderdale Beach,  Florida.  We set  a time and met up . and very quickly I was able to help him. Please see the wonderful Testimonial and pictures below.

Testimonial:

I lost my wedding band in knee deep water at the beach. The current & waves were strong that day, so I knew the likelihood of finding it was slim to none. As I was looking for metal detector rentals in my area, I found Craig & the Ringfinder website. I reached out to Craig (who responded back quickly) and we had an appointment scheduled to meet the following day in the general area where I lost my ring. I had personally looked for hours the day I lost it & Craig was able to find it within 5 minutes… Truly unbelievable! A very simple & straightforward process & I would recommend anyone to contact him in the event you have lost something of value. Thanks Craig!

Lost Again, The Ever Returning Bracelet. Dennis, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

While doing some yard cleanup Ted’s gold cuff bracelet slipped from his wrist off into the area of loosely blown leaves. This, a “lost” bracelet” was a happening that Ted was well aware of. Just after purchasing matching Figaro necklace and bracelet while on a trip to Italy was the first time his bracelet fell from his wrist. After a panic rush back to his rental car for a search not finding the bracelet Ted headed back to the airport. On the ride up the escalator he noticed the bracelet in the fold of a piece of luggage. Yes Ted did make the flight with his bracelet.

A visit to a jeweler supposedly fixed the clasp so the bracelet would never be lost again. It work for a few years until a Cape Cod beach tried its best to keep the bracelet that once again had slipped from Ted’s wrist. This time a friend was the savior, who found and returned the bracelet to Ted. On another trip to the same beach the bracelet again became unhooked and left Ted’s wrist. Ted noticed it missing as he was loading his car. This time Ted found the bracelet hanging form a beach chair he had been sitting on.

This was to be the last time the bracelet would ever have a chance to become unhooked and having to be found. Ted was sure that having the Figaro melted down and made into a cuff bracelet would end the frequent hunts for the wayward bracelet. Well, so Ted thought. This time Ted had to call in some help in finding the beautiful piece of gold jewelry.

My telephone began ringing as I was about out of the house for a quick trip to the store. I missed the call, but For some reason I went back into the house and called the missed message number. About an hour later I had finished my errand and was searching for the bracelet. Within 15 minutes I heard a solid signal, one that I was sure had been in response the coil of my detector passing over the gold bracelet. Yes, there it was. Again the bracelet returned to Ted’s wrist. I don’t know how many times a bracelet has gone missing from one’s wrist, been found and returned. How many ever it is, Ted must own one that is close to having the record.

Lost Diamond Ring, Kits Beach Dog Park…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

I got a call last night from a young man who said his wife had lost her wedding band possibly at Kits Beach Dog Park. I asked my standard questions to see how certain they were of the location and after talking for a few minutes we set up a time to meet the next morning at 8 AM, when I got there the tide was high and very close to the logs. When I met Dave and Stephanie they showed me the area that she was petting dogs and it was the front logs closest to the water, unfortunately she also pointed in the water saying she had stepped away from the log and was standing over there when the tide was out. This would put me in about 3 feet of water if the ring wasn’t found in the dry sand. Nothing like a cold dip in the ocean but I was prepared to go in and do a search if needed, fortunately I found her beautiful ring close to the logs where she was sitting petting the dogs. This ring meant the world to Dave & his wife because it was a gift from his uncle, Dave’s uncle sadly passed away last year due to  COVID-19 and as you could imagine finding this ring was extremely important to both of them. I absolutely love what I do! I’m extremely proud of my directory and the members who have joined to do exactly what I’m doing here in Vancouver and that’s helping find peoples lost smiles & helping continue the stories to these wonderful and sentimental items.

 

I have the best job in the world I get to find peoples lost Smiles!

Quogue Lost Wedding Ring in Snow

  • from Suffolk County (New York, United States)
Contact:

I was in Hampton Bays just finished finding an I-Phone. I was checking email and messages and saw a text from Jacqueline. She said that last night while taking out the garbage that her ring came off and was in the snow.  I go to directions to the house and headed over there.  While in route I called her and said was on my way, she said that wasn’t home but working in the city.  She told the area that the ring was lost in and that I should call if there was a problem.

There was a lot of snow and ice by the garbage cans as well as a lot of bushes. I searched the area with no luck. I then started in the bushes and they were over grown a little so It was hard getting the detector head into them. After moving the branches in different direction I finally got a signal like ring. on my hands and knees I dug out the ring.  Back at the car I called Jacqueline and told her I found the ring. She said that she would not be out to the house till the weekend.  We agreed to hide the ring in a spot that she could find easily.

I-Phone Lost in snow Hampton Bays

Two Sets of Lost Keys in One Day in Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

February 15, 2021

I received two calls today. The first call came from Natasha. She was late for her massage appointment. She put her keys in her pocket and ran the three blocks. Since I was not busy and lived only minutes away and I told her I would take a look.  I searched the route she took and checked the soft snow along the sides. My gut instinct was that they were most likely picked up.  The more I thought about it, the more likely it was that they were close to home. We headed back and I searched where I thought they would most likely be. While there, the front door of the nearest home opened. A gentleman asked what we were looking for.  Natasha described her keys to him, after which he turned to go back inside and returned with her keys!!! Success sometimes doesn’t come with the detector.

The second call came around 3:30 pm. Ali had lost his keys while sledding down a hill on Friday. It was Monday.  After chatting with him, he had done everything right. From immediately searching, to checking places where someone may have placed them if they were picked up. From what he described and what he did it seemed very likely they were there. We just had to find them. Ali described three places where he wiped out on the sled. Both of us searched the hill in detail. Ali remembered that his brother had videoed some of the runs, including two where he went off to the side and bailed. We watched and were able to narrow down the search areas. After two very loud beer cans, we searched the second crash site.  I mentioned that very often, after searching and checking a variety of signals, I would hear “the” signal. When that happens I stop and stand up.  Moments   later I got another signal. I let Ali dig it.  Sure enough, there they were. Ali was ecstatic.  He stopped and said, “Funny, you just stopped and stood up” .

Yesterday I spoke with a woman who’s name is Genesis. She was referred to me by fellow Ring finder John Favano. While she was out in the front yard playing in the snow with the kids her engagement ring slipped off at some point. After a few days of looking without any luck, They called John. I made arrangements to go there today. After speaking with her for a bit i began my search. She wasn’t wearing gloves and remembered she kept shaking the snow off her hands. After about an hour of searching i found it! They were very happy and relieved! First recovery of 2021!

Gold and Diamond Wedding Band Lost in Snow, Found and Returned in Paoli, PA

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Vijay found me via The Ring Finders Directory. He texted me looking for help in locating his lost gold and diamond wedding band. We spoke on the phone and he told me he was on an early morning walk around his neighborhood in Paoli, PA admiring the snow that was really coming down hard. He went to take a picture with his phone and while reaching for the phone he felt his ring fall off his finger straight down into the 8 or more inches of snow at his feet. At the time he didn’t have gloves on so he went home to get gloves so he could dig around and find the ring but by the time he got back…uh oh…the plow came through. I live about 15-20 minutes from Paoli so I was there within 30 minutes. First thing Vijay said to me was that next week is his 1 year wedding anniversary…and he made it clear the ring must be found! We met at the area where he dropped the ring, it was a parking lot of a school, and he showed me exactly where the ring was dropped. It was clear that the ring was definitely swept away by the plow and most likely was in one of the 3-4 foot mounds of snow near where the drop occurred. I had 2 detectors with me…One with a small coil and one with a larger coil. I started searching first with the larger coil but it was tough going and I couldn’t sweep the mound very effectively. I switched to the smaller coil and after each pass without a signal I took my shovel and dug the mound down by a foot or so. The detector depth is only a foot so I was assuming the ring was probably deeper toward bottom of the mound. After 20 minutes and on my 3rd pass I finally got a really good signal(a 22 on my Equinox 800). I called Vijay over and told him I’m liking this signal…we looked together as I dug down in snow. We were both elated to see his bright yellow gold band appear! I tell this to people all the time…being a Ringfinder is a lot “funner” when you are able to come through for the person! I’m so happy that Vijay can celebrate his 1 year anniversary next week with his beautiful band on his finger.
