I received my very first call this morning as a new member of The Ring Finders. Needless to say, I was excited and nervous! I so wanted to be able to find that first ring!

Salvador told me that his wife, Celeste, was playing with their dog in the front yard last night and when she threw the ball, both of her rings (wedding band and diamond engagement ring) flew off her hand. Celeste said the rings were re-sized when she was pregnant, but since having the baby her fingers have shrunk back down, but they hadn’t had a chance to get them re-sized again. Due to construction in the backyard, the front yard had a lot of dirt stored. They found the wedding band right away, but not the diamond engagement ring. Salvador said he went out and bought a cheap metal detector and tried locating them, but was only finding bottle caps and junk metal. So he looked up The Ring Finders and found me near by.

Using my AT Pro, I began searching the area where the band was found. The yard was giving off a ton of mixed signals, but all were deep. Salvador had hand-sifted the dirt in the area trying to find the ring and had made several small piles. I was getting multiple tones as I passed over the main pile, so I reduced the sensitivity and started spreading out the dirt. Seconds later I picked up a tone and as I used my pinpointer, found the diamond engagement ring just under the surface. My first words were spoken quite loudly…“There it is!”  Man, was I excited!

Salvador took the ring and thanked me over and over and took it in the house to Celeste. She immediately came out and gave me a big hug and also thanked me. My day was made.


Diamond Heirloom Ring Lost in Corona, CA…Found And Joyously Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Jason yesterday who had lost his ring while doing yard work that morning at his house. The ring had a diamond that had been given to his father by his grandmother. His father then had it made into a ring to be passed down to successive generations. Jason was the first to have received the ring in succession, and had looked forward to passing it to his own son. He had mowed his lawn, and also cleared a lot of his flowerbeds of leaves and debris, and in the process realized his ring was missing. He was concerned that it might be in the flower beds, or worse, in one of the trash cans that were scheduled for pick up. He said he would be there if I came right away, so I left immediately.

When I got there Jason took me to the area he had cleaned, which also had the trash cans there for inspection. I decided to search the cans first to eliminate them as a possibility. We took the first can and emptied its contents on the pool deck to search. I spread out the leaves and the thick green grass from the freshly mowed lawn, and began my search. Nothing in the leaves, but then in the grass, which had been at the bottom of the large can, I got a good sound. I took out my pin pointer, and began to move the thick grass around looking for the metal I heard. There deep in the grass appeared Jason’s ring. He was so happy, knowing it could have been lost forever if it had gone out with the trash. What a great smile!
