Gold Wedding Band Lost on Soccer Field in Hillsboro OR – Found & Returned by The Ring Finders

  • from Portland (Oregon, United States)

A late night text followed by an early morning phone call to ‘The Ring Finders’ resulted in finding Brandon’s lost wedding band. While playing with his kids at a nearby school Brandon removed his wedding band and placed it in his jeans pocket for safe keeping but prior to leaving the ring was missing. A night time search by family with flashlights, in hopes of seeing the shiny object, was unsuccessful. A family internet search for options led them to me and the following morning I was on site. Time can be critical to recovery & return when a ring is lost in a public place. As I surveyed the expanse of the field and followed Brandon’s description of play locations I was sure the non-standard 3″x18″ search coil on my detector was the best tool for the job. Fortunately, Brandon made some quick work for me when he stood, within feet, of where he thought his ring might be due to lying on and rolling in the grass. What could have been hours was less than two minutes, rare but true. Even when the detector sounded off I was unable to see it hidden deep near the roots without the assistance of my pinpointer.
What a great day for all… sunny, found and returned a sentimental ring, smiles & thank you’s, and I met some nice folks. Oh, and the dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts (fundraiser) for the trip home was a nice treat; saved a couple for breakfast. 😉
‘The Ring Finders’, good folks doing great things to reunite people with their sentimental jewelry!

Priceless Wedding Band Lost in Portland, OR – Found by The Ring Finders

Lara explained that while gesturing with her hands she felt her husbands wedding ring, who had passed a month earlier, slip off her finger and into her yard somewhere. She had used a rented metal detector with no luck and then googled and found The Ring Finders. We met early the next morning, reenacted the loss, and I went to work in the most logical area. Having no luck there I expanded the search. On the other side of the asphalt driveway, approximately 20′ away from where she was standing at the time of the loss, I found the ring; round objects can take funny bounces.
Hugs, tears of joy, and conversation revealed the value of this find and return… priceless!
Lara, thank you for the call and I wish you and your children eternal happiness.
