Ring Lost in Sand — Found and Returned! Captiva Island to Naples

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

Anyone who lives in Florida near the water             or has vacationed in the area has discovered         the small/tiny almost invisible biting fly:               the NO-SEE-UM!  Not only do the no-see-ums bite, but they can also cause people to lose their rings while trying to swat them away—at least that’s what happened to this gentleman!

While swatting at no-see-ums, he felt his wedding ring fly off his finger and heard it hit something before burying itself in the soft beach sand.

He knew the ring had to have landed in a relatively small area, but after spending much time sifting through the sand without being able to find it, he knew he needed help.  That’s when he found our contact information.

In our discussion he explained that the ring did not have a lot of monetary value; but it had a lot of sentimental value to him.  We made arrangements to meet, and after obtaining permission from the South Seas Island Resort on Captiva to enter the property in order to search for the ring, he showed my wife and I the area where he knew it to be.

We began our search trying to be respectful of the other beach goers lounging in chairs nearby.  However, the ring was nowhere to be found.  Pretty soon, the beach goers who had been observing what was going on began to offer to move their chairs and belongings, but still no ring.  That’s when we began asking more people if we could quickly search their “space” and sure enough under someone’s chair right next to their umbrella the ring was found!

 

Naples FL — Lost Ring Found and Returned!

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

Lowdermilk Park, Naples Florida — Tulio was swimming and playing ball with friends in the warm Gulf waters of a local Naples beach when he saw his wedding ring fly off and sink into the water below.  After Tulio and his friends searched for the ring themselves with no success, he found our metal detecting services on the Ring Finder web site and contacted us the next morning.

Since he was working and could not meet us at the Naples beach, we exchanged several phone calls and text messages to narrow down the search location as much as possible.  The tide was high upon our arrival and after two hours of searching, we still had not located the ring.  Tulio then sent a satellite image where he had marked a large area where he thought the ring could be.  With our search area expanded and the lower tide, I was able to search deeper.  After the third hour had passed, I finally saw the lost gold wedding band (inscribed with he and his wife’s name) in my scoop.

We sent a picture of the ring to Tulio and arrangements were made to meet the next day so we could return the ring.

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

This young lady lost her diamond engagement ring in the Gulf waters of Nokomis Beach just a few hours after her fiancée had proposed.  Many people helped look for the lost ring before darkness set in with no success.  That’s when we received an email and phone call asking for our assistance and arrangements were made to meet the next morning.

Upon our arrival at the beach the next morning, my wife and I met with the couple who had narrowed down the search area where they believed the ring was lost.  The water had been calm overnight and we expressed our confidence in recovering the ring.  Sure enough, within just a few minutes of searching with our detectors, my wife uncovered the lost ring.

With a huge sigh of relief, hugs and smiles were exchanged as the ring was back where it belonged!

Naples, FL — Ring Lost While Boating Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

I received a call early Monday morning from Jermaine who was in desperate need of my metal detecting services.

A day prior, Jermaine and his lovely family were enjoying their new boat and a beautiful day on the water at the shore’s edge.  When it was time to call it a day and head back to the marina, Jermaine got out of the boat to give it a little push out into the deeper water. That’s when Jermaine’s hand slipped off the edge of the boat platform and he felt his custom gold and diamond wedding ring fall off his finger and saw it go into the water.  Everybody joined in the search for the lost ring, but they were unsuccessful in finding it.

After a long boat ride home and a sleepless night thinking about how to recover the lost ring, Jermaine got up early and began searching the internet.   That’s when he came across my contact information on the ring finders website under Naples.  We made arrangements for my wife and I to meet to meet him at the marina where his boat is kept.

About an hour later we were anchored in the general area where he had lost the ring the day before.  My wife and I began searching.  Approximately two and a half hours later, the search was over when a faint signal produced a custom gold and diamond ring.

Even though this search turned out to be one of our more challenging searches, we could all enjoy the boat ride back to the marina knowing the ring was found and back on Jermaine’s finger.  The smile says it all!

 

If you have lost a ring or other precious metallic item in the Naples, Bonita Beach, Estero, Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel areas of Southwest Florida, please feel free to give us a call.  Between my wife and I, we have several years of metal detecting experience and over 55 documented successful ring recoveries.

(March 11, 2019) While vacationing and spending the day at a beautiful sunny Naples Florida beach, Kelly noticed that her favorite gold ring was missing, possibly lost in the fine white sugar sand.  She’d had the ring since high school, and it being very special, even  irreplaceable with its sentimental value far exceedeeding any intrinsic value, the help of nearby friends and beach patrons was quickly solicited, all joining in on the search, each one on their hands and knees, carefully feeling and sifting the sand as it fell through their fingers, without result.  Luckily, Kelly called for help and found the right person for the job.  WITHIN THE HOUR the lost gold ring was back on Kelly’s finger.  The tearful now cheerful.  The hug and smiles tell more than words can express, simply priceless.  Thanks be to God for the happy ending.

Captiva / Sanibel Island — Engagement Ring Lost 30 Minutes after Proposal — Found and Returned

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

 


Thirty minutes after saying “yes” to a marriage proposal, Kim lost her engagement ring while trying to take a photo of the beautiful diamond ring.  In the process of trying to get the perfect picture, the ring fell into the beach sand below at the water’s edge.   The newly engaged couple as well as several on-lookers searched frantically for the lost ring—with no success.  That’s when Kim decided to search the internet on “how to find a lost ring” and she came across our contact information.

My wife and I arrived at the location over four hours after the ring had initially been lost.  The tide was rising and the wave action had increased a lot in that time.  We knew that with every passing minute, the ring could get buried under the soft sand quickly.

We got right to work going in opposite directions with our detectors staying within the search area the couple thought the ring was lost in.  Not long after our search began, my wife heard a faint / sketchy deep signal on her metal detector.  Finally after three or four attempts to retrieve the target, the ring appeared in her scoop and was quickly back on Kim’s finger.

This is one marriage proposal this couple will never forget and will be talking about for years to come!
