Gold Wedding Band Lost McMinnville, OR – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Hood River (Oregon, United States)

Steve lost his wedding band while cleaning up yard debris from the recent ice storm. Over the phone the potential loss areas seemed reasonable for a search but unfortunately the exact location was mostly unknown. When we surveyed the 4 main work sites, the 20′ diameter x 4′ high brush pile, and accounted for transiting to/from sites, the area covered approximately 1/2 acre; possibly a 3+ hr search. I was thinking I should have packed a lunch… fortunately Joanie, his wife, had made homemade brownies!
For a rental detector with the typical small coil and generally limited capabilities the task would seem impossible but with my Tesoro 3″ x 18″ clean-sweep coil the odds improved considerably. Steve suggested primary, secondary, and tertiary locations given the amount of work at each location. The large area of leaves at the primary location was the perfect combination for loss due to wetness and poor visual search conditions so that is where I started. Thankfully, our hunch was correct and the large search coil made for a relatively quick find.
A successful ring find & return always makes the long road trip more enjoyable… Thank you Steve & Joanie for the good day.¬†Oh, did I mention the delicious brownies!

Platinum, Alexandrite & Diamond Engagement Ring Lost in Snow – Found by The Ring Finders Portland

  • from Hood River (Oregon, United States)

One good turn deserves another!
Shawna helped dig a man’s car out, twice along her street, during a rare Portland snow storm and shortly after discovered her newly resized engagement ring was gone. The ring was on a necklace keeper she had purchased to use why working in the kitchen and figured it would be equally as safe while outside, nope! After buying a detector and becoming frustrated with the constant beeping she opted to hit the internet for help. “The Ring Finders” came highly recommended and she found my info. I met Shawna the next morning hoping to find the ring before the plows destroyed it. One area was untouched other than traffic but closer to the main street the area was plowed. The untouched area is where she spent most of her time but it wasn’t there. The second area was mounds of snow nearly 18″ deep due to plowing. Shortly after starting that search my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector sounded off on a solid tone that is typical of a ladies platinum sized ring. As luck would have it, slightly covered by the icy snow, was her beautiful engagement ring in pristine condition.
Tears of joy, abundant thank you’s, and the long hug clearly told the story of what the ring and their engagement meant to her… I can’t say it enough, I will never tire of these moments of joy!
