Metal Detectorist In Vermont Tag | The Ring Finders

Wedding Band Found in the Green Mountains, Vermont

  • from Burlington (Vermont, United States)


I was contacted earlier in the week by a lady who lost her wedding band. She had been outside her house exercising her dogs, doing laundry, dishes, and getting her 4 kids ready and loading them into the car to take them to Cub Scouts. Earlier that day she had put her rings into a pocket, and this particular pair of pants had extremely shallow pockets. When she was about to leave, she reached into her pocket to put her rings back on, the wedding band was missing.

She wasn’t sure where the ring could’ve fallen out, but she knew it was either in the house or on the lawn. Her children and friends helped search visually with no luck. She borrowed a metal detector from a helpful neighbor, and had no luck with that either. So, she contacted me for help.

We agreed on today for a search, the weather was cool, but dry. I got there early because I thought it could easily be one of those full day or even a multiple day search. She showed me the large back yard and hill, the most likely area it would’ve been lost, and I got started. In a little while her oldest son came out to watch and help search. He showed me the areas that he remembered seeing his mother go. I had brought 4 detectors with me, because I thought her kids would like to run them. After some instructions, he got started with one of them.

He gave me good direction, because shortly after I got a good signal and found her ring deep in the grass! His Mom was very happy!

After that, he and I detected for awhile, hunting for coins, relics or golden treasure. I sure was hoping he would find something, but after all, it is a hobby that requires extreme patience…

Wedding Ring Found Near Burlington Vermont

  • from Burlington (Vermont, United States)

I got an email from a lady who asked me to help find a “very special” ring, her husband’s wedding band was lost. After realizing it was missing he thought back until the last time he knew he had it on his finger. He figured it was probably somewhere in their yard. He had been out washing their motor coach, loading motorcycles onto a trailer, and giving some attention to one of their 4 rescue dogs. The grass was still pretty lush and deep, so it could easily be hiding a ring. She and her husband just got married in September, so this really shook them both up. He went back to the jewelry store and purchased an identical ring, but after wearing it for a day he stilled missed that original ring. Many people have told me that the original ring is the one that is really connected to their heart! I was recommended to her to help look for his ring, so she contacted me. I went right over after getting out of work. She showed me the areas he had been and I began the search. We got all excited when a good tone rang out, but it was one of their dog’s tags. The sun went down and it was getting cold fast. A little while later another tone sounded good, and their it was, deep in the grass and still in pristine condition! I handed it to her and the relief and happiness took over. I was so happy for them, I love helping people!
