I received a call from a guy who had lost his gold wedding ring of 44 years of marriage on the beach during his morning swim. he stated that he had taken the ring off and put it in his hat on his T shirt on the beach while swimming. After swimming he picked up the shirt and hat but forgot about the ring inside and it disappeared into the sand. Fortunately his daughter did a quick internet search and also checked with the beach patrol and came up with my information. A couple hours later I was greeted by his wife at the beach house and we walked up to the beach location. By now the beach was busy and I asked for the client to remove their chairs and towels from the area to begin my search. After about 10 minutes my metal detector sounded off and the ring was in my scoop! An immediate applause was given by the onlooking beach crowd and the very happy couple of 44 years marriage. Another happy customer!
A stellar day with my ring recovery mentor Edward Cropski. I got a call from a crying woman who lost her ring in the surf in Atlantic City. Then a few minutes later I got a call by a man who lost his wedding band in Brigantine. Ed and I went to Brigantine first. When Ed turned his machine on, the ring was right under his coil! Needless to say the family was much appreciative. Then off to AC we went. After about a little over an hour my Foxy Noxy gave me a solid 10 signal. Bam! There was the ring. When I brought it to her she began to cry tears of joy. Probably my best find to date. It’s very satisfying to return an heirloom when someone thinks it’s gone forever!!!
This is my official 4th and 5th recovery. I have just retired from 25 yrs of Law Enforcement service and can dedicate my time to doing recoveries.
I received a call from a guy that had lost his gold/platinum with diamonds wedding ring on a volleyball court during a company employee outing at the Johnson & Johnson corporate complex earlier in the week. He wasn’t sure exactly where the ring came off but was sure it was somewhere on the court. Arriving at the seen I figured this was a good opportunity to try out the new White’s MX7 metal detector and after a quick setup the search was underway. Deciding to half the court at a time a started to grid the area back & forth and completed the first half with no luck. Moving on and halfway through the second half I received a solid signal right where the sand meets the grass of the court. Observing the display screen of the MX7 it showed a gold vdi reading and as I looked down at the sand I could see the very edge of the ring hidden in the sand. I called over the very worried customer and showed him the ring laying in my sand scoop. “Absolutely Amazing” were his first words accompanied with a huge smile and look of relief on his face,he was extremely thankful for my help and professional service. Another happy customer! Recovery# 110
I received a call from Andrew asking for my help to find his wedding ring that was lost in his backyard. Unfortunately his dog Gunner had gotten sprayed by a skunk and while bathing him in the yard his wedding ring had fallen off.
Arriving onsite and going over the events that lead up to the loss and meeting Gunner I was confident that if the ring was there I would find it as it was a nice short cut lawn and not too big of an area even though the loss had happened 2 weeks ago.
I setup my White’s V3i metal detector and Andrew showed me an area about halfway across the yard where the gate was that he felt was the stopping point at which he was chasing the dog around that day. I started searching area around the hose and most likely spot but no ring. Further into the a few signals but again no ring? I started to get worried as I approached the area of the gate and just as I passed the gate I got a good solid signal,pulled back some grass and there was Andrew”s wedding! Andrew and his neighbor were amazed as I held up the ring saying I got it! He was very happy to have his ring back on his finger and Gunner was now out of the dog house lol! Another happy customer!

In celebration of her pregnancy Suzy & Kostek decided to go to Cape May,NJ for their babymoon. Enjoying beautiful scenery,beach and resorts they decided to treat themselves to a local day spa. They both removed their wedding rings and put them in a compartment in her pocketbook. While paying her husband retrieved his wedding band and seen her 2 rings (engagement & wedding band) in the compartment. Unfortunately it was pouring rain outside so they had to move quickly back to the car. Just a few minutes later they arrived at a restaurant a few blocks away. Again moving quickly from the car to the restaurant entrance. When they got to the counter Suzy decided to put on her rings but they diamond engagement ring was gone! They quickly began retracing their steps back to the car,searching the sidewalk and surrounding area but no ring? Unfortunately their relaxing time had changed for the worse to a panic and restless evening. That’s when they found out about The Ring Finders lost jewelry recovery services. They contacted a local metal detectorist in the Cape May area (Jeff Lagg) but unfortunately was out of town on vacation but directed them to me.
Arriving at the day spa the following morning we went over her steps one by one and began searching the area inside and out of the spa. No luck inside on floors,chairs or entrance way. moving outside I searched the stone/gravel parking lot and landscaping but no ring so we decided to move on to the restaurant around the block. Again we searched the areas but still no ring? I told her something just doesn’t seem right and I assured her that if it was there I would have found it. I asked about her pocketbook and the car? She stated they had searched them but we decided to search them again. Looking in the car with no luck we examined the pocketbook and discovered a tiny slot where the lining thread had come undone that I couldn’t even get my finger tip into but we could feel the ring between the lining lol! What a sense of relief came over her face as we all laughed about the situation lol! They were very thankful for my thoroughness and services. I was glad to see her smiling and enjoying her Babymoon again! Congratulation Suzy & Kostek! Recovery #103

Clients review of service:
“Thank you to the full moon and back, Jeffrey Laag! I had lost my wedding band, engagement ring, birthstone ring (a gift from the hubs after the birth of our second daughter), and a Celtic knot ring I’ve worn for years. Jeff was so very kind and efficient. And he found them after two days of being lost on the beach. Can’t thank you enough! I can now enjoy the rest of our vacation.”
Memorial day has started the summer season here at the Jersey shore! Half way into the day I received a call from a guy who had just lost a very sentimental gold & diamond ring his father had given him on the beach. He explained that he was sure it was within a certain area where he and others were throwing a ball and doing flips etc.. in the dry sand section of the sand and not in the ocean. I told him I could be at his location on the beach in a couple hours and got on the road. Meeting him at the beach entrance we went to a marked off area where he felt the ring might be and I fired up my White’s Beach Hunter id 300 metal detector and began to grid the area carefully. Digging a few trash items I finally received a solid mid-tone in my headphones and scooped up some sand where the detector had pinpointed the signal and Bam! there laid a large gold & diamond mens ring in the scoop! He hadn’t realized that I found it so I casually walked up to him and his friends on the beach and asked if one could take our picture with his his ring that I was showing him at the same time still laying in the bottom of my scoop,Lol! He just filled with amazement and literally hugged me right there explaining how much the ring meant to him and how thankful he was for my service. Another great recovery and another happy customer! 2015 season is looking good!
I received a call from a woman stating that she had lost her diamond eternity ring on the beach earlier today and was hoping I could try to recover it for her. She had a general idea where the ring may be and explained that she had taken it off to put sunscreen on and sat the ring on her lap and later when she got back to the beach house she realized she never put it back on. I told her I could be there within an hour. She was worried with it getting late and it getting dark soon it would be a problem however I told her although its easier with daylight its not necessary since my metal detector has a target indication light system on it along with headphones for the sound so I could still do the search. Upon arrival at the beach,her husband and friend where already on the beach and trying to find the ring by eye and showed me the area where they been sitting earlier that day. I handed her husband 4 red glow sticks and asked him to make a box the size of the general area which was about 30’x30′. As I was explaining my search process her husband informed me that some of the diamonds in the ring were from her mothers ring and are irreplaceable so it would mean the world to her if I could find it. He stated that the ring was platinum and had large diamonds all the way around. I told him I would do my best and began my grid search within the designated area. After 20 minutes and digging a few coins and trash items I received a nice sound mid tone accompanied by a yellow light on my White’s Beach Hunter id 300 detector and proceeded to push my scoop into the sand to retrieve the target. Turning on my headlight and raising my scoop I looked in and there was her ring. A beautiful diamond ring with very large diamonds all the way around. Her husband and friend were watching from a nearby lifeguard stand and I held the the ring up and stated I think I have what we are looking for! They jumped down and ran over with total relief and amazement and couldn’t wait for us to get back to the house to his distraught wife with the great news. We entered the house and he introduced me and held out the ring. What a look on her face as she focused on her ring. She went on to tell me how much it means to her and the story behind the ring with her mothers diamonds. It was absolutely Priceless to be able to bring the smile back to her face after worrying since she lost it hours earlier. Another great recovery,Another great day!
