I received a simple one line email from Rudy, “Can you help me locate a ring I lost in my front yard please?” That’s all it took to get the process started. We had a quick phone chat and the story unfolded with all the necessary details. Rudy told me a few days prior he had his wife’s diamond wedding ring in his hand when his toddler ran up to him. They were on the front porch and he picked his daughter up into his arms to show the ring. In doing so her arm smacked the ring straight out of Rudy’s had. He put his daughter back into the house and immediately started searching the tall shrubs trying to find the lost ring.  Both Rudy and his wife, Andrea, spent the next several days searching inch by inch. They hand search the shrubs branch by branch and hand sifted the needles below and still no ring. Rudy even took out his own metal detector that he had stashed from a long while back. However not having ever used it before it just made a bunch of senseless noice and was of no use. The day before Valentine’s day Rudy was on the phone with Andrea and since she was deeply saddened that the ring was still missing. Rudy readied he had to find a way to get the ring back. After an internet search on how to find a lost ring he found TheRingFinders.com and reached out to me for assistance.

I arrived on Valentine’s day and the search was on! The yard was small but the couple had become object fixated on a specific area in the bushes. They had spent hour over the previous days looking with no success. They did say they never heard the ring fall so there was a good change it never hit the concrete. I did a focused search from the initial target zone and slowly expanding out when I found the ring just beyond their search area. It had been tucked in the grass with some blown in leaves covering things up.

I received an email from Chelsea asking if I would be interested in helping her search for a rose gold three ring wedding set she lost at the horse ranch. I gave her a call to gather more details. She told me that she arrive at work at the ranch and realized she still had her wedding ring on. She clearly remembered taking it off and placing it in her pocket. She remembered it was a bit cold and she took her gloves off a few times and placed them in the same coat pocket as the ring. We both had a strong idea that when she took the gloves out of her coat pocket it most likely dragged the ring out and fell some where on the ranch property. She realized quickly after getting home and checking her coat pocket that the ring was missing. Her husband even helped her by unbolting the passenger side car seat and searching the best they could with no ring found. She didn’t sound so confident being that the ring went missing two months prior. I reassured her that the details of her story were in her favor. You didn’t loose in an active river, out in the middle of a high traffic public area and you have a clear memory of the last pace you had the ring. We set a schedule to meet and she later asked me are you sure because we are in the middle of a huge rain storm. I reassured her I am prepared and ready to go find your ring!

I arrived at the ranch all geared up for the weather with plenty of equipment in hand. I also reminded her if after searching the whole property if the ring was not recovered not to worry.  I was fully prepared to search the rest of her vehicle with my video endoscope checking all possible cracks and under all seats to be absolutely sure.

After a three and a half hour search I recovered her ring buried under several inches of wood chips in the arena. I am very certain this ring would not have never been recovered without the aid of an experienced metal detecting recovery specialist. I am also very honored to have been trusted to assist in the recovery of Chelsea’s lost wedding ring.

Contact: 1-754-707-1233

I got a call to find a 24 Karat 44 gm gold nugget.  It was used in a contest  . The contest was to find the gold nugget in any of the 6  .. 1 ton  burlap bags of dirt. Unfortunately the client couldn’t find  the nugget in the 1 ton burlap bag they knew it to be in after no contestants could find it . So I went to the commercial location where the nugget was at and attempted to find it with my metal detector. but the nails in the pallet interfered and also the writing on the bags interfered. So the client had to take it to a different site so we could dump all the dirt out. once we could dump the dirt out it was found very quickly

White Gold Engagement Ring Lost at Petone Beach, Wellington, New Zealand

from Wellington (New Zealand)
Contact: 022 361 4990

Jane had been playing catch in waist deep water at Petone Beach, Wellington.  She fell, touched the bottom and as she came up a wave hit her and she felt her engagement ring slip off her finger.

Her partner helped her search but the ring had disappeared.

I arrived the following day and her partner put me in the area where they thought the the ring had come off.  I searched for about 3 hours as the tide went out.  I tried various detectors but couldn’t find the ring.  Surprisingly the sand was reasonably clean and I pulled every signal that I hit.

I returned a couple of days later and settled on my Garrett Sea Hunter PI.  I extended the area and grid searched as finely as I could.  Four hours later and the tide getting higher I rang Jane and gave her the bad news that I couldn’t find it.

I was gutted, knowing that it was out there somewhere and I had missed it.  A couple of days later I rang Jane and told her I would have another go at finding it.  Jane waded out in the cool water with me and showed me where she thought they were.  This was pretty much the same as where her partner put me on the first day.  I put a pole in the sand as a marker and did concentric circles until I was at a 10 metre radius.  With the time coming up to 3 hours in the water I decided to start searching parallel to the beach.  After 3 lines, and at the right depth, I got another good signal.  I couldn’t believe it when Jane’s beautiful white gold and diamond ring popped up from just under the surface.

I was able to return the ring to Jane at her work which was only a few minutes away.  Couldn’t get a photo of her at work but I can assure you the smile was worth all the hard work.

Jane sent me a photo. What a beautiful smile

 

WW2 Gold Signet Ring Rescued From The Drink, Port Beach, Perth, Western Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

Eduardo had been cooling off in waist deep water at Port Beach recently when he felt his cherished signet ring slip from his finger. The ring with his initials on top had been made 75 years ago in a prison of war camp during World War 2. He had looked desperately around him in the water and then called out “I’ve lost my ring, I’ve lost my ring” to his wife Piera on the beach.

After calling me I arranged to meet Piera and Eduardo at the beach the next morning when the tide would be out making it wadeable where Eduardo had lost his ring. I took them down to the shoreline one at a time to show me where the loss had occured and noted that they both chose a place on the shore about six meters apart, so I halved this distance and put a peg in the beach to mark the centre and then paced out 10 meters either side of this and also placed a peg in the beach. I then set about working slowly in and out of the water with my metal detector until I had finished the 20 by 30 m grid and nothing, plenty of rubbish, a couple of coins, but no rings. I asked Eduardo if he thought I was going out far enough and he thought that I was. Next I said I was 99% sure I had not missed his ring so I asked if he felt that he could have been more to the north or south of the area I had searched. He felt more to the north was the go so I paced out another 10 m and placed a peg there. After finishing this and then another search extension grid and I’d still not found Eduardo’s ring they had said ok thanks so much for trying but it’s gone now and left the beach.

I was convinced the ring was there somewhere and detectable so with my usual never give in attitude I extended the search area yet another 10m, and still nothing. I thought ok if its not here it must be where I haven’t yet searched, so lets try 10 m to the south.

By this time the tide was a good way in again and the “Fremantle Doctor” was whipping up a few “white horses” and was clearly about to turn nasty for the afternoon so I resolved to come back the next day and resume the search on the southern end. In the morning I was about halfway through my first extension to the south when as I was approaching two women swimming in the water a great sounding signal penetrated my ears. As I raised what ever it was in my

scoop one of the woman had asked me “what are you looking for?” I looked in the bottom of the scoop and thought ‘no way’, there were Eduardo’s initials staring up at me! I turned towards the woman as I simultaniously lifted the ring from the scoop and said “Yes.. This! This is what I’ve been looking for for four and a half hours!

Piera was just amazed when I first sent a picture of the ring and then called to tell her the good news. She came straight back to the beach to collect it and was still a bit stunned but very thankful. I never did hear any of the stories this ring held but with 75 years of history and beginning it’s life in a prison of war camp I am so happy that it’s story can continue..

Love what I do.. Next??

Lost earring in Kearney Mesa found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Naomi was at a local park and lost a family heirloom earring. There were a couple of areas where she had been, including where she was playing with some dogs on the ground. On arrival, we met and she explained the situation and showed me the two areas, both of which are on a baseball field. Unfortunately, there was some guys playing ball on the field, so, one of the areas over by the left field foul line was busy. The other area was deep in right field and not too close to where they were playing, so, that’s where I started. Naomi had the mate to the lost earring, so, I was able to use it to give me a sound and I.D. number to go by. Wow, that little thing didn’t give much of a signal, in fact, in a couple of modes, it didn’t register at all! The best signal I could get was in the Gold prospecting mode, where I got a fairly solid 1 on my machine. I started swinging over the grass and found there were so many signals that I had to eliminate all the other numbers except 1 and 2 or I would be there for days! I made a couple of quick passes where she thought she had walked hoping to get a quick recovery. No dice, so, out came the cones and I started to do a complete grid while she walked over to see how long they would be in the other area. As it turned out, they were just about done, but, that was unnecessary. I decided to complete my grid and on the second pass, the weak little sound on my Equinox that I was hoping for, alerted me to the earring sitting there in plain sight. In a flash, Grandma’s earring was back on Naomi’s ear where it belongs. A pleasure to met you Naomi, and thank you for the reward.

Morgan called me three days after Thanksgiving searching for a way to recover her lost family heirloom gold diamond ring. Her aunt had recently passed this ring onto her and it meant a great deal to Morgan. Holding true to her boyfriend Jake’s holiday tradition they found themselves with family and friends up the snowy mountain the day after Thanksgiving with Christmas tree permits in hand. With  a few inches of snow on the ground Morgan had fallen into the snow. When she got up she flicked her gloveless hands to get the cold snow off. However along with the cold snow she also flicked off her precious diamond ring! She was very upset and soon every one was looking through all the snow to see if they could find the ring. They had no success so Morgan went online to find a way to get her beloved heirloom white gold diamond ring recovered. When she came across TheRingFinders she found my success stories and gained some much need hope that maybe the ring could be recovered after all she was certain where she lost it.

During our phone conversation it became clear to us that we need to make quick plans to get up the hill before the winter snow really started to fall. Our main concern was being able to get up the hill safely to recover the ring before a huge dumping of winter show and ice really showed showed. This would force us to wait until the spring thaw. Something we really didn’t want to do even though this ares is not traveled like our cities there is still quite a few locals that enjoy the area all year around. The chance of someone eyeballing the ring was something we certainly did not want to risk.

One week later on a Saturday Morgan’s boyfriend and one of his buddies agreed to meetup to tackle the hill. To our grateful surprise a lot of snow and ice they had experience the previous week had melted. We made great time up the hill and before long I was in full swing after the heirloom white gold diamond ring.

Lost Diamond Wedding Rings In Home Recovery Bellevue WA

Two days after Thanksgiving I was called out to Belleview for an in home search of a lost 4.5 carat diamond wedding ring set.  From our over the phone interview I had very strong belief that the rings were still on the property and we had a very strong chance of recovery. Even though my primary focus is recovery via metal detection typically in outside environments I agreed to drop by to help assist in this in home search effort.

Ashley had already confirmed from her in home security video she had the rings on when she came home Thanksgiving evening. She clearly remembered taking them off specifically to put some hand lotion on while sitting in her front living room and the next morning the rings had simply disappeared no where to be found! Once again our dreaded hand lotion scenario has caused a pair of rings to go missing… 

She also confirmed no one but her family had been in the home since the loss. We had a few ideas that stated to develop as I continued to ask a lot of questions through my investigative process gaining clarity of the events that took place.

She wasn’t quite sure if she put the rings in an empty ziplock package from her bathroom for safe keeping, in her robe pocket or simply on their coffee table. Fortunately they saved all the household garbage in case the rings some how got tossed away. She also told me the next morning with the same robe on she bent over out the from door to pickup up a package from the porch when her phone fell out of her pocket crashing to the floor. It was certainly possibly the rings could have fallen out as well and landed under the shrubs outside.

I also ask her about her four year old daughter if she had ever shown any attention towards mommies rings. She side her girl has but had not ever run off with them before. I still keep this as a very likely possibility in mind.

Watch this video to see the full story unfold of the exciting recovery of Ashley’s amazing diamond wedding ring set.
