I received a text from Arthur that he had lost his grandfather’s ring in his neighbor’s backyard. In talking to Arthur it was on a tray that he dumped, forgetting it was on there. He heard it hit the chain link fence separating the yards and spent hours in vain looking, unable to find it. The ring was very special (as most are) with the story of this one having belonged to his grandfather who served in World War II and then continued serving in the NYPD. The ring was from his grandfather’s time in the NYPD.

I arrived at the house and met Arthur who showed me the search area. Pretty standard, however, the chain link fence of course could pose a challenge. My thought was it was directly under the fence and would be very difficult to locate. I searched with my large coil first, then switched to my smaller one to get closer to the fence. It took me about an hour, but I located the ring a short distance from fence next to a large pine tree. The pine needles provided the perfect hiding place.

Arthur was elated to have his ring back as his face lit up with a great big smile. The ring was a large gold ring and was inscribed Captain, a tribute to the rank of Arthur’s Grandfather at the time of his retirement I would assume. There was a little bit of added pressure trying to find and return this hero’s ring to his grandson and I am glad to have been able to do so. It is always a blessing to meet kind and generous people like Arthur and a pleasure to have been able to find and return his ring!!

Rose Gold Engagement Ring and Wedding Band – FOUND! in Mars, PA near Pittsburgh

I was on my way back from a trip so I was not able to head out until the next day.

Upon my arrival Sharon took me back and showed me where she thought she lost the rings. They had been in her pocket and she believed that when she took something else out the rings must have fallen. I surveyed the area, she had been out playing with her kids and had been in the tall grass on both sides of the road. There was  steep hill on one side with a ditch and the grass in this area does not appear to get mowed.

I got started as the temperature was rising and suddenly the arm cuff separated from the shaft of my detector. This has never happened before, I was only about an hour in and had a lot more land to cover. I tried to fix it only to discover it actually snapped. It was pretty awkward but I kept going. I finished the one hill and was walking up the other side of the road heading back to take a quick break when I caught a break…the sweet sound of gold in my headphones. I looked down and had found the engagement ring. I was hoping that the wedding band would be close by. I searched the immediate area in the grass pretty hard hoping it was there. Sharon had come down to see where I had found her diamond. When she learned that they were not together she gave me a pass and said she understood if I needed to go or wanted to stop however, there was no way I was giving up just yet! It took me a little while longer but I did find the wedding band camouflaged on the road in the light gray shale.

It was the first time I had to look for a wedding band and engagement ring together. I am glad I found them both and Sharon was elated to have her rings back!


Lost Gold Wedding Ring – Found! Baden, PA (Pittsburgh Area)

I received a text from Mr. Lopez who stated that he had lost his ring while gardening at his residence and would like my assistance. Upon my arrival Mr. Lopez stated that he had been working in his garden in the front yard and had spent some time in the back yard as well. Mr. Lopez had a front yard that is one big impressive garden with several different species of flowers and plants. The challenge here would be to make it around all of the plants and flowers without disturbing all of his hard work and not missing any of the terrain where the ring could be hiding at the same time. I began my search and BAM! within the first few minutes (a personal best!) I found the ring hiding in a tuft of grass. When I knocked on the door Mr. Lopez was concerned that I was knocking so quickly after getting started that maybe his cat had escaped from the house, however much to his surprise it was because I had found his ring. I was relieved to have found Mr. Lopez’s ring and return it to him as he had mentioned about having to replace it and I believe that some things can just not truly be replaced.
