Rob was cleaning out his gutters and slung his ring off into the back yard. He purchased a metal detector and tried to find the ring, without success. Locating TheRingFinders on line, he called us for help. We set up to hunt the next day. Carrie and I had a 20’ x 20’ area to hunt. Easy-peasy. Ten minutes and we reunited Rob with his wedding band. Thank you Rob for the generous reward.

Received a text message about a lost ring in Elgin, Illinois. Apparently on Christmas Eve, his wife was outside cleaning crumbs off a tablecloth . In doing so, her large diamond engagement ring slipped off in the snow. The husband rented a detector but was unable to find the ring. I came out today, 1/10/2018 and did a 30 minute search. I found the ring which had apparently been stepped on by people searching for the ring. Needless to say he was very happy about finding the ring. I’m sure his wife was equally happy!!

Bonita Springs Big Hickory Island — Rings Found & Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

This time of year, many people travel to southwest Florida from long distances to escape the snow and cold.

This was true of a family from Sweden who contacted us a few days ago requesting our metal detecting services.  At the end of a beautiful warm day at the Big Hickory Island private beach in Bonita Springs, the family gathered up their beach items and started to walk to the boat shuttle.  That’s when they remembered they had put two rings and a watch in the baby carrier upon arrival for safe keeping.  After looking in the baby carrier for the jewelry items, they were not to be found.  After they retraced their steps, they found the watch laying on top of the sand, but the two rings which had great sentimental value were nowhere to be found.

Research on the internet led them to the ring finder website and that’s when we received their call for help.   Arrangements were made to meet the following day.

Once on the private island, we made a short walk to the area in the sand where the watch was found.  Within 30 seconds of turning the metal detector on, the first gold ring was recovered.  A few seconds later, the next signal turned out to be the second lost gold ring!  

 

Troll Angry! Lost Gold Wedding Ring Found in Fremont… Seattle, Washington on Christmas!

from Seattle (Washington, United States)
Contact: 1-206-651-4779

This Christmas, under a bridge,  I battled a giant troll for a gold ring! When he was distracted by tourists taking selfies, I snatched a lost heirloom from under his gaze and returned it to its rightful owner!

A woman lost her mother’s wedding ring, inscribed with her father’s name, while throwing snowballs at the troll on Xmas eve. She was just visiting this state for the holiday, so it was crucial she find it before her flight out of Seattle. After renting a metal detector, searching and not having any luck, her friend found my name on Google. She called me Christmas morning and I was on the case in a couple hours.

Luckily after around half an hour of searching, I hit the target! Buried in the snow was her ring! I was super happy to help and I got out of there quick before the troll knew what had happened…

Gold ring snatched from the Troll!

Happy reunion!

LOST TEXAS A&M RING FOUND & RETURNED NEAR KERRVILLE by CHRIS DEAN, TheRingFinders.com

from Kerrville (Texas, United States)
Contact: 1-830-285-9935

Madi contacted me and said she lost her Texas Aggie ring at a Bachelorette party on the banks of the Guadalupe River (Kerrville, TX. area). She said she found my contact information on the TheRingFinders.com member directory. Madi was able provide a good description of where the ring might have been lost and even sent me a photograph of the area the ring should be located in. Due to the property being a vacation home I had to wait for the owners to return for the Thanksgiving weekend in order to gain permission for access.

I made contact with the property owners and set up a time on the Friday after Thanksgiving that I could conduct a search. They told me they had already purchased a metal detector to try to find the ring themselves but quickly found that without experience it was not fruitful. I assured them with my skills and the right equipment I would find the ring if is was there.

Friday turned out to be a gorgeous West Kerr County Chamber of Commerce type of day. A light breeze and the temperature nearing 80 degrees meant a short sleeve shirt. I arrived at the property and quickly did a reconnaissance of the area Madi had described. Lush green grass topped the ground meant the perfect place for a ring to hide!

After ground balancing my Garrett AT Pro I began sweeping the detector at the edge of the target area. It was quickly evident that there were many underground objects that made my machine sing. One pass in my grid line.  Two passes in my grid line. In the middle of my third pass – Bingo! That unmistaken tone of gold in my earphones. I looked down at the detector screen and saw the target ID at 76 and the target depth of 2-4″. I parted the grass and viola! Hidden from the naked eye was a ladies Texas A&M Class ring.

Gold deep in the grass!

 

 

The return is worth a beautiful smile.  Gig’em!

Sounds easy, right? Not quite! It takes: Buckets of pull tabs, pounds of shredded aluminum cans and many hours of swinging the detector while learning the sound tones of different metals. Like a detective, asking the right questions to narrow the search area. And of course, lots of dollars spent in equipment.

So, if you lose your ring, jewelry, keys or even your cell phone don’t waste your time and money buying or renting a metal detector. Follow these simple steps to recover you lost items:

  1. Takes notes and pictures of the area you think you lost your item in.
  2. Contact a member of TheRingFinders.com immediately – this will save you time, money and a whole lot of heartache!
