Relaxing in a prime vacation spot at the Weekapaug Inn Beach, Westerly RI, Dan removed his wedding band as most beachgoers would before swimming or applying sunscreen. Later that day, Dan’s summer vacation took a stumble when he realized the wedding band was missing. He immediately searched the internet for help and came across my blog entry from a couple of weeks prior, where I saved the life of a honeymooner by finding his handcrafted lost gold ring. Dan sent me an email and scheduled an appointment. I had a good feeling about this search from the beginning, mostly due to how quickly Dan called after realizing the wedding band was lost and his confidence in explaining the scenario. I searched the area where Dan was sitting, working my way back towards the path he walked the previous day. After 20 minutes of searching, I ended up finding the ring deep in the sand, only a couple of feet away from the rollout plank walkway, where Dan paused to put on his mask. This area is the primary path for the Weekapaug Inn guests to enter and exit the private beach, so the constant foot traffic caused the lost wedding band to sink quickly.

Is sunrise too early to start searching Misquamicut Beach, Rhode Island, for lost rings? If you lose your ring during your HONEYMOON, no search is too early! This lost ring brought me to twelve (12) acres of land nestled within Misquamicut Beachfront, known as Atlantic Beach Park, the second oldest family-run seaside amusement park in the country. It has been providing summer fun since the early 1920s. Best known for its 1915 Herschell-Spillman Carousel and hand-carved Illions horses, people come from all over to take selfies on this old school carousel.
“My wife and I (it’s kinda weird saying that because we just got married three days ago) are on our honeymoon here in Rhode Island when I noticed my ring was a little loose… It fell off, and we probably spent 6 hours of our honeymoon looking for the lost ring. My dad is a custom goldsmith, and it’s not the first ring he’s made me. He made me another ring in the past, and I lost that one but ended up finding it a year later. I was hoping to find this ring in less than a year later. I found Keith online, and he came over and found the ring in 15 – 20 minutes.”
I answered a request early one morning after receiving a submission the night before through my website’s “Schedule Search” button. Thinking I had a couple of hours before the hearing from Brian, I continued answering emails. This lost ring must have had Brian up early because I received his phone call only minutes after sending the email. When I heard his story, I knew I had to stop everything I was doing and help find the lost ring plaguing this honeymoon. Just after 7 AM, I arrived at Brian’s Airbnb on Atlantic Ave. Westerly, RI. The best part about searching the beach in the early morning is not having to awkwardly ask beachgoers if they would mind moving their chairs so I can search the sand under them. We had the whole beach to ourselves, and I could see Brian’s work in the sand where he was looking for the ring on the previous day – along with a rock marking the area where he and his wife were sitting. Usually, when someone has a reference point of where they were when they notice the ring was missing, it’s a good sign. Making a couple of passes with my metal detector, I heard a strong signal. Brian was carefully watching me remove the sand when he caught a glimpse of GOLD. He said, “I saw it!” And he was right. I picked up the thick gold ring decorated with his father’s custom designs. This is truly one of the most beautiful rings I’ve seen personally. I don’t know of many goldsmiths, but Brian’s dad is one of only a few capable of this intricate work, if I had to guess. Brian and his wife finished their honeymoon with smiles on their faces.

A beachgoer lost her heirloom diamond ring at Misquamicut Beach, RI late July 2017. By the time she realized the ring was forgotten on her beach towel, it was already too late. Digging in the sand with your hands to retrieve a ring is a near-impossible task. However, when your deeply valued possession disappears, you have to try something! After a good hand digging effort and even recruiting a local metal detectorist who was scouring the beach for lost jewelry, the woman thought her grandmother’s lost ring was gone forever…
A week had passed and time was running out. A lost ring remains in the sand until mother nature or another metal detectorist with the right equipment comes along and ruins all chances of returning the ring to its rightful owner. The woman finally came up with the idea to search the web for “ring finding service” and my info came right up. After a quick discussion explaining of details surrounding her lost ring, we agreed on a date to conduct the search. I arrived at the location first to find multiple beachgoers still soaking up the late evening rays. I decided to get started with the search ahead of her arrival based on her description of the lost ring’s approximate location. She did a great job of explaining where she was sitting that day because after only 30 minutes of searching, 20 bottle caps, and pissing off half of the beachgoers, I was holding the diamond ring she thought was gone forever! Another lost ring found and reunited with its owner.
At this point, I was in possession of the lost ring and the unsuspecting owner still hadn’t arrived… What would be an unforgettable way to return a high-value possession? The fake-out of course!!! Check out the YouTube video below to see her shocking response!

A woman recently contacted me to discuss a ring she lost while playing with her dog in Westerly, RI. The last memory of her lost ring was from Father’s Day earlier in the week.
Once I arrived, we began walking around the yard, discussing the number of places she could have lost the ring while playing fetch and bathing her dog. The ring search started at the hose where she washed the family dog. Just as I finished searching the grassy area where the dog was getting bathed, the ring owner asked me to check the bushes where the hose connected to the house. An immediate signal rang through the metal detector just under one of the bushes. I brushed aside a few wood chips, and there it was! Another lost ring handed down from generation to generation was found and reunited with its owner!
