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

Quick recovery this evening. 4 Rings total, 1 White gold birthstone ring, 2 Platinum engagement / wedding bands, 1 Silver ring. They were on the beach 2+ days. Recovered to the relief of the bride.
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!
I received a call last week from an old classmate stating that he had lost his gold wedding band on the baseball field at our old high school. Jim had stated that while playing in the game his ring was not fitting right due to his hand being swollen and although he was aware of it and being careful he looked down and the ring was gone. Another detectorist friend and myself met Jim at the field and went over the events leading up to the loss and began to grid the field area. After a couple hours with no luck jim had decided to call it a day and considered the ring gone forever. I assured him that if the ring is there I will return to hunt another day and do my best to find it. Well,today was that day (a week later) and after remembering some of the things Jim had told me he was doing on the field I searched the area close to the dugout where he had his gear bag and within minutes I had received the signal from my Whites V3i and could see the outline of the ring just below the surface of the dirt. I recovered the ring and gave Jim a call to tell him I had found his ring. Living just a few blocks away he came right away and couldn’t believe that I had found it and was very happy to put it back on his hand. This was a cool recovery for me,doing it at my old high school for an old classmate. Awesome day!
I was contacted by a man this week whose wife had happen to lose her 4 platinum wedding and engagement rings on the beach after she removed them to put sunscreen on their child and putting them in the pocket of her shorts which were on their beach towel Not realizing that the rings were missing until later that night when they got home,they immediately returned to the beach with friends and family marking their location and raking and searching the sand.They even rented metal detectors the following day but had no success.Searching the internet they found the Ring Finders website and contacted me 2 days later.I made arrangements to meet them at the site and search the area.After a brief description I began searching a gridded off area and 15 in we had recovered the first ring about 4 inches in the sand.Realizing that in the past 2 days the beach screen tractor had plowed the beach we expanded our area and 45 minutes later the 3 other rings were located within 4 feet of eachother, actually inline with the first ring recovered about 30 feet away.The owners were amazed that the rings were found and just thought it was a miracle and were over joyed.I must say it was a great feeling to help the couple out in this situation.Also I would like to say Thank you ! once again for your generous reward and interest in promoting not only my service but the Ring Finders metal detecting service as a whole.I advised them not to wear the rings to the beach which they easily accepted.Have a great day!
