Twin Rescues Part 2, Coogee Beach, Fremantle, Western Australia.

Contact: 0469880955.

Just 15 minutes after recovering Jeff’s sentimental gold bracelet from under his boat in Coogee Marina I noticed a missed call on my phone. When I returned the call a rather emotional Cailan explained that he and his fiancee Rosemary had been swimming near the ammunition jetty at Coogee Beach when she’d felt her gorgeous engagement ring slip from her finger to the ocean bottom.

I was only five minutes drive to the north at the time so as there was only an hour or so of light left I

Rosemary’s precious in all its glory.

arranged to meet them straight away and search for it. When I arrived I was greeted by about 8 people.. one of which I knew! After the loss someone had thought to see if maybe there was a metal detecting service in Perth. Dean who work’s at my local scrap metal yard had said there should be as he knew someone who came into his work from time to time who did this sort of thing, I’d even shown him photo’s of some of my finds at one stage.. A quick google search had found my website www.RingRescues.com.au and when I arrived Dean and I had recognised each other and explained to the group the coincidence! About half the family had been having a picnic and swim so I had quite an audience as I began the search.

Someones meant to get married soon!

Now I didn’t have my marker flags with me so I asked Cailan to enter the water and stand where he thought Rosemary had been in the water when the loss occured. I then began a grid search around him. Just before I began I’d asked Rosemary’s sister to film the affair as I was both hopeful of finding it and that it should not take long if Cailan was fairly accurate on where the loss had happened. Only minutes later I yelled “found it’ and began running and jumping my way back to shore with it. I passed it to Rosemary who was staring in disbelief (along with everyone else) and then I turned to her sister. I asked what does the counter on the video say? She replied “it just ticked over four minutes!”

Realisation that they really did have it back washed over Cailan and Rosemary and as it did their disbelief turned to sheer joy. This really was a rewarding moment that made me feel damn good.. What an amazing afternoon.

A young couple who became engaged on Christmas were completely devastated after an evening walk in North Toronto went horribly bad . Snow had accumulated in their neighborhood to about 6 inches buy that evening. The couple explained while brushing snow off with her hand the young bride to be felt her diamond engagement ring fly off and into the surrounding snow banks which were about 1 foot deep. Hours of searching on hand and knee digging through the cold snow was all in vain and they couldn’t find the precious ring. The young lady could not hold back the tears and the couple were devastated knowing they had no insurance on the expensive ring.

A very common thing for newly engaged young couples! I will often encourage them to add these precious items to their home insurance and also have a jeweler inscribe a name and possibly contact info inside the valuable ring. Most jewelers can do this for a very nominal fee and it is well worth the cost if found by someone else.

After a couple of days the husband in desperation started googling lost Rings and of course came across The Ring Finders web site and my contact info.
Once the young man contacted me I immediately made my way there. Just coming off a successful under water ring find in the Niagara region of Ontario I felt time was of the essence for this recovery.

Once a ring has been lost in a public area especially along a city sidewalk, the clock is ticking down and its only a matter of time before someone else eventually finds it .

Unfortunately I have arrived to the same type of scenario where the person who out of desperation posted signs that a ring was lost in the area. I’ve also seen posted signs with a photo of the ring, detailed description of it and where it was lost! The sign had a diagram of almost the precise location to where the ring is laying. Basically advertising to the not so honest among us FREE RING CHECK HERE👇.

Not a good idea at all! Luckily this couple found Ring Finders onliner. Once I arrived we had one big problem, the electrical transformer box and it was not much more than 3 feet away from where the ring came off in the snow. When it comes to any metal detector if you’re too close to electronic interference you will hear it big time on your detector. However a neighborhood transformer is the worst kind of interference possible. Being so close to such a large amount of interference will cause multiple sounds even at the lowest set discrimination on the detector. Truthful the detector sounded like a Las Vegas slot machine hitting the jackpot on New Year’s eve. I was worried!

However myself and many other Ring Finders on this site are highly skilled and trained having experience with this type of situation. A trained ear and knowing the sound of gold amongst all those bad signals on a is key in this type of recovery.
I grid the area quickly and only after a few minutes in between all the chaotic chirps, beeps and tones a familiar tone coming from beneath snow. Jackpot!

The white flakes and tears kept falling for a few minutes after I pulled out the georgous ring. However this time they were tears of joy and the young couple were again reunited with their beautiful diamond ring.

WW2 Gold Signet Ring Rescued From The Drink, Port Beach, Perth, Western Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

Eduardo had been cooling off in waist deep water at Port Beach recently when he felt his cherished signet ring slip from his finger. The ring with his initials on top had been made 75 years ago in a prison of war camp during World War 2. He had looked desperately around him in the water and then called out “I’ve lost my ring, I’ve lost my ring” to his wife Piera on the beach.

After calling me I arranged to meet Piera and Eduardo at the beach the next morning when the tide would be out making it wadeable where Eduardo had lost his ring. I took them down to the shoreline one at a time to show me where the loss had occured and noted that they both chose a place on the shore about six meters apart, so I halved this distance and put a peg in the beach to mark the centre and then paced out 10 meters either side of this and also placed a peg in the beach. I then set about working slowly in and out of the water with my metal detector until I had finished the 20 by 30 m grid and nothing, plenty of rubbish, a couple of coins, but no rings. I asked Eduardo if he thought I was going out far enough and he thought that I was. Next I said I was 99% sure I had not missed his ring so I asked if he felt that he could have been more to the north or south of the area I had searched. He felt more to the north was the go so I paced out another 10 m and placed a peg there. After finishing this and then another search extension grid and I’d still not found Eduardo’s ring they had said ok thanks so much for trying but it’s gone now and left the beach.

I was convinced the ring was there somewhere and detectable so with my usual never give in attitude I extended the search area yet another 10m, and still nothing. I thought ok if its not here it must be where I haven’t yet searched, so lets try 10 m to the south.

By this time the tide was a good way in again and the “Fremantle Doctor” was whipping up a few “white horses” and was clearly about to turn nasty for the afternoon so I resolved to come back the next day and resume the search on the southern end. In the morning I was about halfway through my first extension to the south when as I was approaching two women swimming in the water a great sounding signal penetrated my ears. As I raised what ever it was in my

scoop one of the woman had asked me “what are you looking for?” I looked in the bottom of the scoop and thought ‘no way’, there were Eduardo’s initials staring up at me! I turned towards the woman as I simultaniously lifted the ring from the scoop and said “Yes.. This! This is what I’ve been looking for for four and a half hours!

Piera was just amazed when I first sent a picture of the ring and then called to tell her the good news. She came straight back to the beach to collect it and was still a bit stunned but very thankful. I never did hear any of the stories this ring held but with 75 years of history and beginning it’s life in a prison of war camp I am so happy that it’s story can continue..

Love what I do.. Next??

Hearing Aid Lost in Dunedin, Florida…Found

from Dunedin (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-843-995-4719
  • When I became a member of The Ring Finders last month, I mentioned in my bio that locating a lost hearing aid was what led me to join an international group of metal detecting specialists who help reunite people with their lost rings and other metal valuables.
    In December, a neighbor asked me to help her find her grandson Ben’s hearing aid that he had lost while playing in the yard with his sister. I began my search in an area where Ben’s grandmother said that he began to chase his sister around the corner of the house. After a 30 minute search in thick St. Augustine grass, I located the hearing aid which was mostly plastic but contained sufficient metal to allow detection. The hearing aid had a $5,000 replacement value but my neighbor’shugs and smiles were priceless.

Diamond Heirloom Ring Lost and Found.. Twice! Palm Beach, Rockingham, Western Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

I’d just been beaten out of the water by mother nature trying to find a lost gold and diamond ring at Leighton Beach in Perth when I got a call from Dan who’s wife had lost a very sentimental gold and twin diamond ring her mother had passed down to her. During our conversation I learnt that Dan had already bought a metal detector and scanned the sand around the volley ball net where she’d lost it. He had not had any luck. Although an hour down the coast from me at Palm Beach, in Rockingham and after having already spent 3 hrs or so detecting in building ocean conditions I agreed to come down straight away as Dan, Chloe, their son, daughter and friends were still at the beach where Chloe had felt her ring come off.

The family had set up their own mini volleyball net and it was here that Dan showed me where Chloe had been when she felt it come off as she was not yet back. I set about searching her side of the court first even though physics would often dictate that the ring had gone over the net somewhere, possibly even into the water just 5-6m away.

I got a bit excited when I quickly got a loud (recently lost), double blip signal from my headphones.

Damn.. its a drinks ringpull.. that will learn me I thought, it sounded too good to be true

The next signal I mentally analyzed a tad slower in my head then looked over to Dan and said “this

sounds even better!” The great sounding target was not in a good place physics wise but I drove my sand scoop into the sand under the shallow signal and felt something solid hit the bottom as I lifted it out of the sand.

In the bottom was a silver ring.. Oh and it has two lovely diamonds on it.. I looked again to Dan as I removed the ring from the scoop and said “can’t be too many twin diamond white gold rings just lying around eh?”. Dan was already running toward me and quickly identified it as his wifes ring.. Dan’s face was priceless, a mix of dis-belief, joy, excitement and thanks!

Chloe was actually out on a jetski at the time so I said to Dan and friends “why don’t we make this a bit more special? Believe it or not I convinced Dan to actually throw it back in the sand but on the side of the court where by right’s it should have flown in the first place. I resumed detecting as Chloe was nearing on the jetski. Dan brought her over to introduce us and I began to ask her version of what had happened and then asked her to show me. She demonstrated the spike she did when she felt the ring come off and I indicated the theoretical line the ring may have gone to her. I then started detecting toward it knowing I would just miss it moving away from her but detect it coming back toward her. When I did I took my headphones off and called her over. When she was kneeling beside me I siad “now just have a feel carefully in the sand just there..”. Well although she was careful I actually saw the ring nearly touch her hand, twice, before I pointed to exactly where to feel in the sand. Well Chloe was exstatic when she finally lifted her mum’s ring from the sand, she’d looked shocked at first but then erupted in a huge smile of realisation it really was her mum’s ring. Next she gave me a big hug then an amazed look!

It was now that Dan and I explained what had really happened and showed her where I had actually found it!

The family smile pic shows the effect all this had on them, turning a not so good day at the beach into a great one..

Loved doing this search for you guys.. happy new year!

Precious Ring Lost In The Ocean, Hammersley Pool, Perth, Western Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

Milena called about midday to ask if I could find her diamond and ruby, gold ring which she had lost whilst swimming in Hammersley Pool two day’s prior. I said “sure can” and “there’s no time like now” and soon set about throwing my gear in the ute and headed straight to Hammersley Pool about an hours drive away. Normally I would have taken only one detector and off loaded my dive gear before leaving.. what a shame I didn’t but the reason for this comment will become clear a little later in the story..

Four or five people had been searching for Milena’s precious ring the day before in snorkling gear but alas it had not been found.

What a beauty Milena!

Milena had a pretty good idea where it had come off so I handed her my video camera as I felt confident it would soon capture me finding her ring. I waded into the water and began detecting across the pool to the reef at the back of the pool. About three meters from the reef I heard the first signal to come from my whites surfmaster underwater metal detector so far and the signal smacked of being a gold ring.

I had my back to Milena as I pushed my scoop into the sand under where the signal had come from and shook the scoop as I raised it to the surface. I was pretty certain this was her ring and if whatever it was, was in the first scoop it had not been very deep and that meant it had not been there for long and was therefore even more likely to be Milenas ring. Just before the scoop appeared above the water I felt a solid object hit the bottom of the scoop, this turned into a rattle, a distinctly gold sounding rattle. Tentatively I looked in and low and behold Milenas gorgeous ruby and diamond ring lay in the bottom.

I took a moment to think, then abruptly turned around, lifted my detector in the air with one hand and Milenas ring in the other and yelled “Yeaahh, I’ve found it Milena!”

Me, Milena, her ring and her son, daughter and three grandchildren all enjoying the moment..

I was so excited I literally paddled, ran and jumped my way back toward the beach and we reckon I managed to put her ring back in her hand in about two minutes flat!
