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!

Lost Ring Found Waikiki Beach

  • from Waikīkī (Hawaii, United States)

I received a call from Jair Villanueva from LA he needed help finding his ring and a piece of metal but didn’t ask any questions about what the metal was.
I agreed to meet him at the Hilton Hawaiian village and after about 10 minutes I was surprised to see a large gold coin in my scoop it turned out to be a really old Spanish gold coin that looked like it came off an old Spanish Galleon ship.
A few minutes later I was able to find his wedding band all in about chests deep water.
Another really happy customer!

Lost Diamond Earring Found and Returned in Nampa, Idaho!

  • from Nampa (Idaho, United States)

Wow!!! Wow!!! Thank you so much  theringfinders.com website for directing me to Scott Robbins of  https://www.208treasure.com/ . He is located in Nampa, Idaho. On October 18,2020 we had my grandsons wedding in the back yard. It is about an acre. During the festivities my granddaughter lost her diamond earring. Not just any diamond earring but the one she received for completing her Masters degree in Engineering, so it was very, very important.  I bought a metal detector, no luck, one of my  daughters friends came over, no luck. In desperation I started looking for a professional on the internet. My daughter said “mom no one looks for lost things like this, I said I will find someone!!”

Well Lo and behold I found Scott. He came out the next Saturday morning in the rain mind you, and within 1.5 hours he comes walking in with her earring.

I was so so happy and my granddaughter was beyond tears.

If you need something found this is the person to call.

-Thanks for the kind words Shannon!  It was a pleasure getting to meet you, and I’m so glad we were able to get that earring back for your granddaughter!

  • from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact:

I received a call about a lost white gold diamond woman’s ring set. The set was lost in the snow and was unable to find it about three weeks early.

During that day when she lost her rings, she had visited many other locations, she had made many phone calls about her missing rings at the other places of business with no luck.

After metal detecting two other locations close by with no luck, the last place we looked, there was the rings. Found one then the other close by.

She was very happy to have her rings returned to her.

Lost Gold Signet Ring in the Sea at Russell – Found After Three Years of Searching!

  • from Paihia (New Zealand)

Three years ago, Connor was swimming at Long Beach near Russell and he felt his gold signet ring slip off his finger.
This was a one-off piece, well sort of, as each of the family had one made with the family crest embossed into it. Effectively irreplaceable.

I met with Connor at the time and spent some hours looking for it in the surf and on the beach, however came back empty handed.

It was highly unlikely a casual detectorist had found it in such a short time, so it had to have gone deep with the sand movement.
It became a thorn in my side, knowing it was there…

Any time I was in Russell since then, I had a look at the beach – Some days the sea and sand were favourable so I spent a few more hours looking. As I do with any outstanding recovery.
Other days, there was obviously a lot of deep sand overburden, so any attempt wouldn’t be productive.

About three weeks ago, I stopped by as had become habit (bordering on obsession) whenever I was on the peninsula.
I saw a very shallow and subtle shift in the beach contour so I kitted up.
The first hole produced a very old and white-oxidised lead sinker, this looked promising – but had someone else beaten me to it with the ring?
Second signal was a clean low tone, but very faint. I dug the scoop in deep, but the signal remained in the hole.
Second scoop took me down to around 40cm deep, the hole was silent so whatever it was, was in the scoop.
Expecting another sinker, I shook the sand out of the scoop in the water, looked in and there was a beautiful orangey-yellow of gold, just starting to get that water-aged tone.

Three years… and fifteen days, after it had been lost.

I emailed Connor that night with a photo. His reply was that of amazement, disbelief, and lots of exclamation marks.

Today he drove up from Auckland, and I handed his family ring back to him, smiles and handshakes aplenty.

I sat in the car afterwards, and put a line through his entry in my little black book and wrote, with immense satisfaction,

FOUND! 11/02/21

 

I-Phone Lost in snow Hampton Bays

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

I received a call Late Tuesday from Gianna telling me her husband was out shoveling snow and when he came into the house He couldn’t find his phone he had it in his pocket and realized it must have come out in the snow.  I ws told they looked for it till it got dark and then called me.

I was out Wednesday mourning with my metal detector and started the search in the front yard near the house.  It didn’t take long before I got a very strong signal and after moving the snow from on top there it was.  I gave the phone Gianna who turned it on and it came to life like it was never in the snow
