Lost Diamond Wedding Ring Recovered in Avon by the Sea,New Jersey!

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-856-296-9258

I received a message from a girl whose mom had lost her diamond wedding on the beach the day before. Although they were unable to meet me the following day at the beach,she was able to give me some details as to the approximate location according to landmarks.

I arrived early the next morning just before sunrise and noticed a lifeguard as she described and began my grid pattern search of the area with my metal detector. Although I searched the area and beyond for hours I had no luck locating the ring but did find a large amount of coins and trash items so I was confident that another detectorist had not found it before me but had to call it a day as the daily crowds were arriving. I messaged them letting them know I did not find it but would return the next day to try again,

I decided for the second search I would use my new White’s TDI Beach Hunter PI metal detector which not only detects deeper in the sand but also is excellent at recovery smaller items or offset items like a ring on its side in the sand. I searched most of the area as the day before and found more coins and trash but no ring so I started searching the way off the beach to the stairs and started digging more signals. Just as I was going to throw in the towel one of those signals turned out to be her diamond ring! When I called and told her I found it up by the stairs she was surprised as she really thought it was in the other area but you just never know? We meant a couple hours later for a very happy and thankful return. Another happy customer! Another great day of metal detecting!

Wedding Ring Lost in garden Recovered! Westfield,NJ

from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-856-296-9258

I received a call from a woman asking if I could help find her husbands wedding ring in their garden? He had been working in the yard for the past few days and noticed that his gold wedding ring of 58 years was no longer on his finger and he was pretty upset about the loss. I drove up the following day meeting the couple on their lawn and we walked around to the backyard where there were multiple boxed in 10 x 20 gardens and large compost pile behind the garage. Although it was a nice backyard I felt it wasn’t going to be an easy hunt with all the growth and area size.I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector with a small 4 x 6″ search coil to get in between the flowers and plants. He felt the most likely area was the compost pile so that’s where I started but after a half hours search I had no luck? Next we moved onto the garden boxes one at a time and still no luck. Finally I started searching the paths between the boxes and leading to the compost pile when I got a good hit from my detector. Looking down I brushed some weeds aside and there was is ring! It took a while and I could tell they were losing hope but when I said I found it,the smiles came right to there faces! Another happy customer! Another great day! Recovery #118

Keys found in Chula Vista

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Angela called me to help find her lost keys. It was dark, she and her husband were outside his car in the parking lot where they lived. Angela attempted to throw her keys over to top of the car to her husband on the other side. The keys didn’t make it! They hit the top of the car and bounced somewhere. They searched the parking lot, sidewalk, and landscaping the best they could in the dark using a flashlight, but, didn’t have any luck. They searched again the next day, even cleaning out dead leaves and branches from the bushes along the sidewalk. Still no luck. Next in the process was to buy a metal detector and try again. They had “fun” removing everything imaginable from the ground cover and bushes, but, the keys just wouldn’t speak up. Eventually, they heard about The Ring Finders and gave me a call.

I met Angela at the parking lot around noon and got the low down on how the keys were lost. I started by searching all the ground area in and around the bushes and all along the sidewalk. No luck. I ran the coil over the surface of the bushes and even in the overhanging tree branches, but, still nothing. Next, I started at one end and started shaking all the bushes as hard as I dared, hoping to hear the tinkle of keys or to hopefully convince the bushes to let go of them. We made it all the way to the other end without success, but, while walking back toward where we started Angela looked down and spied them right under the corner of one of the bushes. Yes! Don’t know how we missed them at the time we were at that bush, but, hey, they’re now back where they belong, so, that’s what counts. A very happy Angela called her husband with the good news and both gratefully thanked me. A pleasure to meet you Angela and thank you for the reward.

Wedding Ring Lost in the Bushes Found in Tulsa,Oklahoma

from Broken Arrow (Oklahoma, United States)
Contact: 1-918-724-4184


I received a voicemail from Kaci. She had stated her wedding ring flew off her hand tossing candy from her car in her driveway while holding her young child. She said she had lost it on 10-30-18. The next day is when she called me. I said I can come right after work so I came home grabbed my gear and headed her way a 20 minute drive. I searched for awhile with no luck. I searched the yard three times before she headed to work. I said it’s not in the yard. She had some bushes right by the car and porch so I got on my knees and found a pull tab at the base of the bushes. Just as her husband was home he headed for the porch I heard the sweet sound from my pinpointer… I said to him does her ring look like this he said no way I said yup I got it. Now the fun began I said we have to go surprise her. I gathered a bunch of small metal from my truck and went to see KACI. We got there and I told her it’s not in your yard or your car. I showed her all the stuff I found in her yard with the ring hidden beneath the junk. She started moving stuff around in my hand and saw her ring underneath.. Her reaction was priceless.. Thank for getting ahold of me KACI..

Lost Ring in a Corn Pit… Found!, Great Falls, Va. (Oct 2018)

from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-571-217-5759

First time searching for a ring in a corn pit; here’s the story…

Chris took his family to a local pumpkin patch last week, one of the side attractions there was a barn stall filled with corn kernels to about 18 inches from the ground, a corn pit to play in. Chris and his son enjoyed the pit and after a fun day at the pumpkin patch, went back home. That’s when Chris realized his wedding ring was missing. He retraced his steps and came to the conclusion that his ring must be in the corn pit. He went to the internet for guidance on how to find the ring and came across The RingFinders. Chris gave me a call, and after securing permission from the owners of the pumpkin patch, and after I fought off a cold, we met at the corn pit this past Saturday before the the pumpkin patch opened for business. It was raining outside, but the corn pit was nice and dry; and the search was quick. It took about 15 minutes to get the reading we wanted to see on the machine, then a handful of corn revealed the ring.

Glad to have been able to help Chris recover his ring!

           

 

Matching Lost Silver Wedding Ring Recovered in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA 94117

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-415-895-0334

Michael was reading on his favorite bench in the Fuschia Dell area of Golden Gate Park when an annoying fly began buzzing him. After swatting at the fly with his left hand, he realized his wedding ring had flown off into the grass around his bench.

Michael searched and searched the area for his ring but could not find it. He and his partner returned the next day, but were again unsuccessful in locating the ring.

You might think a silver wedding band is not too expensive and could be easily replaced. But this heavy silver ring was part of a matching pair of custom wedding bands created over 30 years ago!

A friend of theirs found THE RING FINDERS on the Internet and recommended me to the guys. I was able to get out the next evening, and after 40 minutes searching the broad landing zone to the left of Michael’s bench, I finally located his beautiful oak leaf cluster silver ring, deep in the green grass, right in front of his favorite bench.

 

Beautiful matching oak leaf designs, together again!

Lost Silver Turquoise Ring Found in San Jose

from Santa Cruz (California, United States)
Contact: 1-408-256-3796

lost turquoise ring found in san joseChuck was barbequing in his San Jose back yard when he got some chicken grease on his fingers. So he wiped off his hands on his apron, and the next thing he knew, his custom silver and turquoise ring was gone.

Chuck and his family searched the plant beds without any luck. But the ring had to be there-he hadn’t shaken his hands hard enough for the ring to go far.

I dropped by Chuck’s house Wednesday afternoon. My 17-year-old dog Benji was with me to help with the search, and Chuck welcomed us both. Chuck showed me the BBQ and the plant beds where he’d been cooking, and I got to work.

The area was small, so it wasn’t long before I found the ring. It’s a beautiful custom ring that Chuck was happy to have back. Silver and gold have a habit of burying themselves deep in plants and grass, where they can be very hard to see. Look at the left-hand photo below to see how well hidden it was.

We both turned around to look for Benji…and found him swimming across the pool with his front paws on a pool float. Less than five minutes and the dog is in the pool. No harm done: back in 2010 it was raining when we recovered a ring our very first client for TheRingFinders. He gave us a towel, which I’ve kept in my car ever since. So Benji got dry fast and slept on the ride home, as usual.

 

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING BATON ROUGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Taloria called late Saturday afternoon looking for help in finding her lost engagement ring. It was too late to drive the 1 ½ hrs to Baton Rouge and get any hunting in before dark, so we set up to meet early the next morning. When we arrived at the site, Taloria said she was on her way to a party with friends when she placed her engagement ring on her lap to apply some hand lotion. When they had parked in the grassy field, she exited the car not thinking about the ring. When she realized the ring was gone, she hunted in and around the car but did not find it. She then called us to help. Being she knew where the car was parked, the search area was small. The problems were tall grass and lots of trash (foil, pull tabs, drink containers, etc.). The hunt was very tedious.  Sid got tired of the constant up and down to check out hits. He got on his hands and knees and crawled around using the pin pointer. The technique worked. A hit with the pointer and glints of shiny metal proved to be the ring. Taloria (also Carrie and Sid) were very excited. After reuniting Taloria with her beautiful ring, lots of hugs, lots of smiles, and lots of pictures, we all headed home.

TheRingFinders Metal detecting service helped recover a Lost wedding ring in Fallbrook Ca. OPEN NOW 24/7 CALL 760 889 2751

I received a call from Marissa regarding a Ring that was lost in a man made lake during a wedding the day before.
Uh-Oh! After a few questions & concerns we decided the best time to perform a search was 7:30am the next morning.She was able to get permission while I signed some insurance wavers needed because this specific location was a privately owned Lakeside Wedding estate at a remote area of Fallbrook Ca.

Upon arriving to the scene of the lost ring, I met Marissa and the Owner who had lent his precious heirloom Platinum/Gold band for the Wedding ceremony.They showed me where it was last seen falling into the abyssal lake along the edge amongst a solid boulder retaining wall. Fortunately I brought a tape measure & the depth was only chest to shoulder deep so I geared up my equipment then down into the murky mucky water I went seeking into fish poop and clam shells…!
Along with a first chilling morning in San Diego shakingly cold,,The biggest obstacle I had on this type of search is the area where the ring had flown off too had contained many large boulders from the edge of the water retreating out nearly 4 feet.

I began searching and was able too clear the targets in this short 6’X6’ zone with the first machine I used,A Whites Dual field waterproof Metal Detector.I did find 1 Quarter,2 dimes along with a bit of trash but no ring! So I switched Detectors with another pulse induction machine that is NOT hard wired & I Previously modified it for diving along with a small coil to get between nooks and crannies for these few calls.

“I do detect ambiguity in this section of the act” This search is still active⚠️…
Though, I may fail from giving up!

I quickly began the second grid search while hearing multiple signals of Non ferrous Metals in between and around the boulders using the tip of my 6 inch coil?! I then began scooping and scooping in Zero visibility water while dumping the piles out with help from the owner of the ring. After being certain I was chasing my tale on all these many potential targets lodged between the boulders, I decided to check the piles of black muck I scooped up and dumped up above..The first pile I swung over I could hear a conductive non ferrous metal when I unveiled it to be only just a penny. The second pile was the sound of a holy nickel….But it was only,,,,, Actually…..
THE PRECIOUS RING  😁 🙏 !

I couldn’t help but cheer and smile with them. This kind of excitement is thrilling plus the story behind this lost Heirloom ring will Live forever & ever again.

What I’ve learned on many types of calls has kept me ahead in better preparation for providing the best equipment and know how on How to find your lost ring.

((Who ya gonna call)) ?

Lost gold ring in White Rock BC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I get a call from a young lady telling me that she was at White Rock Pier when her husband was giving her a beautiful 22k gold band when it suddenly slipped out of his hand and fell into the ocean below. She told me at that moment they both thought it was a gone forever.

She went back the next day and thought she saw the ring in the water below but it wasn’t the ring. She went home that night and went on google and searched the internet and found TheRingFinders. We decided to meet at the pier and she showed me the exact location the ring had fallen into the ocean.

Because the tide was low in the early morning I decided to go before work the next day. I got up at 3:30am and was at the beach by 4:50am I had the ring by 5:15 am and on my way to work! It was lucky the ring was there as its a very popular place to metal detect.
