Lost diamond ring in surf, Ormond Beach, Florida….found with metal detector!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Geoff emailed me after searching the web for someone to help find his daughters lost engagement ring in the churning ocean! She had just gotten the ring a few months before and the poor young lady had been crying for the last three days. So many times it happens….folks receive or purchase a nice piece of jewelry and then in a moment….it is gone! In this case they were enjoying the beach, the water and the waves and as they were wading out into the surf all it took was one split second for an unexpected wave to hit them while their backs were turned and BAM!! We all have been hit by these waves and many have lost sunglasses, chains, goggles, hats, ear rings, and in this case…a very beautiful and meaningful diamond engagement ring.

Geoff, the young lady’s father, was also heart broken for his daughters loss and wanted to do all in his power to help find her ring. And as impossible as it may seem, he began to have a glimmer of hope as we emailed back and forth. I asked my usual stream of questions and we decided to meet the next day on the beach two hours before low tide. (I am also very optimistic when someone looses something during high tide because that usually puts the item further up on the beach-instead of way out past the first sandbar where it can be quite rough and much more difficult to conduct a thorough search!).

I met Geoff and his dear wife the next day and we walked out onto the beach where his daughter, four days earlier, had lost her ring. I tried to stress how important it was to try and remember exactly where she was when she lost her ring…and thankfully Geoff answered by pointing to a large hotel and indicated where they had parked their vehicle. Then he went on to show me where they had been in the water and I was very thankful that the area was relatively small. I set out my favorite pink flags, marking an area on the wet sand, to help keep me going in straight lines in and out of the water and then I began to swing my water proof metal detector slowly back and forth. It was a beautiful day and normally these types of searches can take a few hours but within minutes I began to dig signals in the sand. First a coin, then a rusty nail and 20 minutes later up pops a very stunning diamond ring. All I could see at first was a rather large diamond sticking out of the sand and I wondered if I had actually found someone else’s ring. I picked it up and was amazed at how beautiful it was. I motioned for Geoff to come see what I had just found and then I asked them to describe his daughter’s ring. They both quickly blurted out a perfect description and as I opened my hand to reveal the ring, Geoff let out a string of expletives and was visibly stunned in unbelief. He quickly apologized for his language but continued to walk in circles saying how he could not believe I actually found the ring.

It was an honor to help Geoff and his family and I am available to help you!

Ring Lost for 7 Months Found!

from Leesburg (Virginia, United States)
Contact: 1-571-258-7217

This was a referral from another theRingfinders member; I received a call from a lady in Front Royal, Virginia about a lost ring. After talking to her for a while I found out the ring has been missing for about 7 months and even after a few other detectorists tried to locate it they were not able to recover the ring. I made the 50 mile journey to her home and upon arrival she showed me where she believed the ring was lost. Her husband had been doing yard work and was throwing leaves into the woods next to their property and shortly afterwards realized his ring was missing. After doing a quick view of the property and asking a few more questions I went to work. Within 30 minutes I had located the ring buried under some leaves, but also in between several rocks which may be why others had missed it. The owners wife was ecstatic to have her husbands ring back! This was November 2019 and she didn’t plan on giving him his ring back….at least not until Christmas, wrapped under the tree!! So happy to help Brandy.

Joe was spending a relaxing day at the beach and decided to go for a swim. Regularly, Joe removes his wedding ring and necklace and then places the ring on the necklace. His wife agreed to hold both. After placing the necklace over her head she noticed the ring was missing. The ring had buried itself next to their Sun umbrella and after we remove the metal objects in the area, I found Jose ring before he could put the umbrella down.

Lost Ring and Shark Visit – Gulf Shores, AL – FOUND!

from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

I was so tired yesterday that I didn’t even write up the story but the day was totally worth it. The night before I received a call from Angel who was down from Tennessee with her fiancé celebrating their engagement in Gulf Shores. She explained that she had been out in about thigh deep water throwing a football when her ring came off. At least she assumed it was in the Gulf, like most people, she wasn’t aware that it was gone until later that day. I agreed that I would come the next day but it would have to be at Sunrise because I was working that day and would have to find it before then. I pulled into the condo at 5:45am after an hour drive and Angel was already eagerly waiting for me in the parking lot. As we walked down to the beach and she explained where she thought it was, I quickly learned that she is just a lovely person and I said a quick prayer for help finding the ring. I got out in the Gulf and it was just awesome. The sun was beginning to peak over the horizon and the water was clear and calm. I was really enjoying myself and before long Angel’s fiancé joined her on the beach. I was explaining about the need to dig the occasional coin when I saw movement from my right. It was a small shark maybe a bit over 4ft long and he came right up to me about arms length. He just kind of eyeballed me and said hello and I thought that it was a great sign. I proceeded to do my first search pattern left to right with no luck. I then went into super detective mode and scoured the entire area again the other way going North and South. As I was wrapping up about an hour later I started to get worried. That ring was not where they thought it was. I walked up and suggested that we move some of the chairs around and let me grid off the beach. I could see Angel getting really worried so I tried to stay upbeat. When I was done with the beach, I told her that I wasn’t giving up yet so she couldn’t either. I told her to think about other areas it could be while I went back into the water and expanded my search west. I was on only my second pass when I got the unmistakable sound of gold. It was such a good signal that I got their attention and they watched eagerly as sure enough I had it in my scoop. There were so many shells it was hard to see until finally I saw a flash of diamond. I gave them a big smile and a thumbs up. It’s the first time I have had to fend off a couple with my metal detector and back away saying “Don’t hug me, don’t hug me”. 😃 Luckily, social distancing won out and as they hugged each other and cried a bit, I promised that one of these days I might make it up to Nashville post Covid and I would gladly take those hugs. Until then, Angel, I am so glad I was able to help you two out and I wish you all the very best! 💍

SeattleRingHunter Lost Item Recovery Specialist LAND & SCUBA Call ASAP 206-618-8194

Watch video link below…

A gentleman looses his wedding ring while fishing with his son. After visually searching the area a few times the ring still remains elusive. With strong reason to believe the ring may have dropped into the fish pond we prepare to search the water with a metal detector. Watch this story unfold to see where the ring was found hiding. As I have said before these rings are small and excellent at hiding and it happens to everyone. In the end it doesn’t matter how they are found as long as they get recovered and returned to the owner. We are happy to report another lost ring recovered and a happy gentleman to have his ring back on his finger.

Watch the story unfold here:

Cheers,

Lost Ring after Tropical Storm – Orange Beach, AL – FOUND!

from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-850-346-1736

Yesterday after work I got a call from a nice man named Nathaniel from Huntsville, AL. He and his wife were staying at Orange Beach and had already ridden out Tropical Storm Cristobal so they were really ready to get down on the beach and do some exploring. Sometimes after a big storm there will be tidal pools left after the surge takes out a bunch of sand and leaves the water in it’s place and that’s what Nathaniel was enjoying, throwing football back and forth when his wedding ring came flying off. When Nathaniel called me I went through my standard list of questions and the only thing I was worried about was that a gentleman on the beach with a detector had helped them look in the water for about 45 mins to no avail. It turns out that this was a Good Samaritan from out of town and might not have been familiar with hunting in saltwater. I told Nathaniel that I would be there in about an hr and not to worry that even if it took awhile I was prepared for a night hunt. I was secretly thinking that it wouldn’t take long to grid the tidal pool but when I got there I saw that it was easily the largest one I had ever seen on the beach. It was over 100yds by 100yds. Wow. 😳  Luckily, Nathaniel is a very intelligent guy and had immediately marked his position with landmarks and then walked straight out and marked his position on the sand with a beach chair. We had a great starting point. We went over a few more questions and as the rain poured down, I started my search. I could hear the disturbed areas in my machine where they had been digging, looking for it so with every step I was hoping to hear that gold tone. The first try was a no go so I asked a few more questions about whether he was throwing the ball hard or lobbing it, etc.  I expanded my search and started to see that tell tale sign of doubt and worry on Nathaniel’s face. I told him not to worry that I even had another detector in the car and if I had to I could grid out the entire area. He nodded and smiled a bit as I finished up the larger area with no luck. I came back over and asked him what he was thinking while he was watching me search and he said he was worried. Nathaniel is a big strong guy and he said he was throwing the ball hard so I asked him if he was throwing a tight spiral. He said of course 😄 so I told him that if he had followed through the ring may have flung to the other side towards shore. He said he had thought of that but he didn’t see it splash and he felt like it just had to be the other way. I smiled and politely told him my favorite line that “if they knew where it was, they wouldn’t need me.”  He laughed and agreed to let me do a bit of searching towards the waters edge. I went 3 feet and got a 12-37 which is usually a zinc penny on my machine but I never pass a good signal while searching for a ring and I always dig it very gently so I won’t damage the ring just in case. It came up in the scoop so easily that it didn’t make a sound and when I held it over to Nathaniel he just yelled, “YOU ARE THE MAN!!!”  Haha, that feeling of elation never gets old. It turns out that it was Nathaniel’s wife’s birthday and she was at dinner with family hoping that he would make it in time. When I found out I insisted that we make a run for it and they could send me pics later. As you can see, he made the dinner and I’m pretty sure his wife liked her birthday present. 👍😃. I’m so glad that I could help out, Nathaniel. It was a pleasure meeting you. God bless!

Diamond engagement ring found in Savannah, Georgia

from Blackshear (Georgia, United States)
Contact: 1-912- 286-7733

What do you do when someone calls for help and they want you to come the morning of your anniversary, you go.  After you ask your wife of course.
I received a call while vacationing on Hilton Head about a lost ring.   The ring had been dropped off a dock while throwing a cast net.  The husband had looked for a little while that night.
I meet them the next morning at low tide and while it was still dark.   After coming up empty after maybe 30 minutes, I finally found the ring.  It had been stepped on and was buried deep.   It was a nasty hunt but well worth the trouble.  When I found the ring I did not tell them.  I walked out to wash off and gave them a sad story about the ring probably being stepped on and out of range being buried in the mud.   I then reached in my pocket and gave her a nail, then a dime and then I said I found another piece of trash (the ring).   She was excited and her husband couldn’t believe it.   It was the most beautiful ring I have ever seen.   They asked what they owed and told them they could decide.  It was a very generous reward.   I could now get my wife a nice anniversary present.   Thank you Jesus for helping us today.

LOST A RING, JEWELRY OR EVEN YOUR CELL PHONE?

DON’T WAIT TO CALL 215-850-0188

Amy lost lost her cell phone the other night while walking her dog on the beach. She and her husband went back to the beach later that evening and again the following morning to look for it with no luck.

That is when they reached out to fellow Ringfinder Dave Milstead who referred them to me. After speaking with Amy about the details of how the cell phone was lost, I began a thorough search of

the area. Approximately 45 minutes later, the cell phone was found about 8 inches deep in the sand. Amy was happy to have it returned because she needed it for a meeting later in the afternoon!
