Gold anniversary ring lost, recovered and returned in Phoenixville, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received a Wednesday morning text from Felix who found me in the Ring Finder directory. I broke away from work and gave him a quick call to allow him to fill me in on the details of his wife’s lost ring. Apparently his wife, Kim, was at a community farm in Phoenixville, PA with her daughter the day before picking up her weekly veggie share. Felix told me both his wife and daughter saw the ring fall off her finger while they were picking and bagging their veggies. He shared that the area where it dropped was 4-6 inch high farm field grass and that both his wife and daughter spent hours searching for it with no success. I conveyed to him that I was quite confident I could find it for them and we agreed to meet at that farm at 5 pm later that same day.

I met kim at the farm and she showed the exact area where she felt and saw it come off her finger.  The area consisted of  rows of raised vegetable laden mounds each separated by 6 feet of 4-6 inch farm field grass. Kim knew exactly where the ring came off…even showed me the basil plant she had picked just prior to seeing her ring slip off. It fell off when she was putting the basil in a bag and she tried to catch it before it hit the ground. Her daughter saw the falling ring as well. She was amazed/surprised/concerned about not finding her beautiful white gold anniversary ring…she just figured she can’t see it in tall grass. At this point I’m figuring 3 minutes max…I’m going to find this thing! Well after 15 minutes of searching both sides of the basil mound and the basil mound itself I was starting to question whether it was actually there. I took my own gold ring off several times to check my equipment and convince kim that if I’m over it I’m not going to miss it.

Well after several passes of the area she was convinced the ring was I figured its time to expand the search area. I moved over an entire row to the adjacent grassy lane….maybe 15- 20 feet from where she was convinced it dropped and finally hear the beautiful signal I had been looking for. I hadn’t even bent over yet and the ring still wasn’t visible beneath the grass but I knew what it was! I gave Kim a big smile and bent down to part the grass…there was her big gorgeous ring! We laughed and high fived…she couldn’t believe how far it was from where she thought it fell. I truly live for the joy I brought her by putting that ring back in her possession!

Metal Detecting Lost Wedding Ring Found in Ohio!

  • from Lancaster (Ohio, United States)

Brandyn is all SMILES that his wedding ring was FOUND!

Me holding the Found wedding ring and my Garrett AT Max Metal Detector!






I received a message from Brandyn near Trimble, Ohio that he had lost his wedding ring and that he had contacted another member of the that had referred me as I was closer to his area. Brandyn said he knew he was out of the counties I had listed (I’m in Lancaster, Ohio so I do Fairfield, Hocking and Perry Counties Ohio) but he was hoping I would make an exception, which I did!  We arranged a day & time that worked for both of us and met at the property!  It was pretty far out in the country in Morgan County & very close to Athens County. Brandyn explained they brushhogged and mowed an area of tall grass. He was working and picking up piles of the grass & weeds & throwing them over a fence and at some point saw his wedding ring was missing! After trying to find it without luck he contacted The Ring Finders website which led to me being there to help!

After showing me the areas where he was working and pointing to the fence by the woods, we hoped it was in the mowed area still and not thrown over, but I was ready to try my best with my Garrett AT Max Waterproof Metal Detector! I started detecting & when I heard ‘that sound’ I knew it had to be it, FOUND within a few minutes! I love this detector and even more handing the ring back to Brandyn! His smile showed how happy he was! It’s rarely that quick so it was a blessing!

Lost Ear Ring Montauk Point Surf Club

  • from Suffolk County (New York, United States)

Saturday mourning received text that a  ring was lost Friday night.  It is a 3 hour drive and I told Ima That I would be out early afternoon.

When I got there, they said it an ear ring, which was either lost in the parking lot or at the beach.  While they were checking out of there room I searched the parking lot with no success.  We then when down to the beach and I searched from the entrance to the area that they said they were sitting.  I started a search of the area that they were sitting . It was difficult because the chairs and umbrellas had been taken down from the night before.  Ima remembered seeing some orange sand. after doing a visual search I spotted some and started a search.  after a few minutes I got a signal that was the same as the other ear ring. A little sand digging and there it was, after a few shanks to rid the sand from the ear ring I handed it to Ima. The photo says it all.

Sentimental Ear Ring Lost At Atlantic Beach Found Two Days Later

  • from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)

Atlantic Beach, NC

I was practicing my detector skills and settings at “The Circle”.  As I pulled another bottlecap from it’s sandy depths (glass bottles are prohibited here), a couple asked if I had found an ear ring.  Kate informed me she had lost the ear ring in the same general area 2 days prior.  My recovery mode went into action as I started to grid the area.  To her surprise and after a few more pieces of junk metal, I received a solid 1 signal on my Minelab Equinox 800.  It took 1 scoop to unbury her missing ear ring.

Kate was thrilled I found it and explained although it didn’t have monetary value, her Aunt had made the ear rings for her and the sentimental value connection made her very happy to have the set back in her possession.

Lost class ring, Clemson South Carolina- found

  • from Greenville (South Carolina, United States)

I was contacted by a gentleman who had recently graduated from a college in the upstate. The gentleman advised he was at a dock swimming and upon exiting the water his ring slipped off.  Gathering more information about the search it sounded like a very good possibility of recovery, so I committed to the dive.

I met the client at the dock, geared up, jumped in and found this visibility to be approximately 5 feet total, the depth to be 15 feet with a very silty bottom. I started hunting with my metal detector and with this being a public dock there were tremendous amounts of metal trash. What made the hunt more difficult was to the fact that as soon as I moved the silt on the bottom- trying to find the metal object- my visibility went to zero and stayed that way. I very meticulously , “blindly” searched for approximate one hour and 45 minutes with the detector, picking up every metal object, feeling it in my hands and placing the trash in my collection bag to get it out of the search area.

At the 1:45 hour mark I surfaced and spoke with the client about what he wanted to do. I was down to 700 psi in my tank and 15 minutes left of a contracted two hour timeframe. We decided to give it one more shot…. I submerged, landed on the bottom, my metal detector signaled, I picked up the object and felt it…. Lo-and-Behold; there was the ring!! I surfaced, gave the client the ring and he was overjoyed!

Its always very satisfying being able to return a lost item to someone, especially working in conditions that are extremely difficult to search.

Lost wedding band in LBI Found by Matt St.Germain

  • from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Recovery #3 2021
I was contacted by fellow ring finders John Favano and Dennis Burlingame about a lost wedding band.
I then called Kayla and spoke to her about her cousin Brian that had lost his wedding band while at the beach with his wife Lauren and cousins playing catch with a baseball and mitts. He took the mitt of a few times to shake the sand out and his ring went with it. At first Brian was feeling reluctant to have me come do a search as he felt it likely wouldn’t be found. I talked Kayla into letting me give it a try. Once I got there and they showed me the different spots they were playing and sitting I began my search. After about 45mins I had the ring in my scoop! They were overjoyed and relieved! Another happy ending!

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!

Lost Ring Found In Manoa Valley

  • from Waikīkī (Hawaii, United States)

I received a call from Mike, who’s recently retired from his roofing company and handed over his business to his son and now has plenty of time hunting for old bottles in the Manoa valley. Many wealthy people lived in the valley, and their trash dumps held a lot of very collectible bottles.
Mike asked me if I could help him and a few friends locate where the old trash dumps might be using a metal detector. I said, sure, I’ll give it a try.
After about 3 or 4 hours, Cali came up to me and said I lost my ring last week while working on my farm about a 30-minute hike in the dense jungle. I said, what the hell are we doing looking for bottles when we could be looking for gold.
After tromping through a rough jungle, we came upon the spot where he lost his ring, and sure enough, it was right where he said it might be.
Another happy customer!
