Georgette had been diligently working on her latest project in the backyard of their gorgeous Herndon, Virginia estate. She was constructing a beautiful garden path made of rock, pebbles and stone. Towards the end of the day, the young lady realized that her precious 14 karat white gold snake style diamond engagement ring was missing from her finger.

Georgette did everything in her ability to find her lost ring, but nothing came about from all of her efforts. She searched all over her property with a metal detector that she bought from a local sporting goods store, but still she could not find her precious jewel.

Georgette’s fiance Rick also joined in the search, and after the couple had invested over 6 hours of metal detecting and using their flashlights to try to eyeball the lost ring, sadly, all of their efforts led to no avail. Georgette was devastated. She even woke up in the middle of the night, went out into the backyard with her phone light illuminated and continued to scan the area where she had been working so diligently in the past 24 hours. Unfortunately, she walked back into her house empty-handed.

When all else failed, Georgette took to the internet and searched for another solution to her desperate situation. That’s when the answer finally surfaced. She found the elite international directory of metal detectorists called THE RING FINDERS! Like many, she did not know that such a service existed. Immediately, she looked up a local metal detectorist in her area and that’s when she found me.

I spoke with my client on the phone for quite a while so that I could acquire all of the details regarding the disappearance of her exquisite diamond snake style engagement ring. Georgette told me that there were times when she was not working with her gloves on in order to take pictures and to maneuver a few things around in the area where she was constructing the garden path. I took note of all of those particular times and places that she remembered not wearing her gloves and the actions that Georgette initiated that may have caused the ring to slip off of her finger.

After getting all of the information that I needed, the two of us set up a time for me to come out to her estate in order for me to attempt to solve this curious mystery. I couldn’t wait to get to Georgette and Rick’s property!

Later that afternoon I arrived at the couple’s estate and immediately Rick and Georgette took me to the backyard to show me all of the surroundings that were part of my “investigation”. Their estate was simply breathtaking! Additionally, the path that Georgette had made from scratch was truly a work of art!

As soon as Georgette had finished showing me where she had labored so diligently, such as: all of the places that she walked to gather tools, spread materials, dumped weeds, set up her outdoor Bluetooth speaker system inside a bucket to listen to music, and each of the areas where she took pictures, I was ready to start detecting.

In the two and half hour time period that I had been metal detecting and scanning all around the search site, I diligently covered a number of key spots where the ring could have potentially ended up. I looked all along the new path that Georgette had created, grid searched a part of the lawn where the young lady had hauled weeds in a wheelbarrow to a dumping site across the property, metal detected all of the building materials that were piled up on the ground, metal detected in and around her beautiful garden of vegetables and flowers, and finally scanned an area where Georgette had found numerous baby snakes that she had to deal with over by a tree stump. I checked everywhere and still found no ring.

It just so happened that during the final leg of my search (the last possible place remaining that I needed to scan with my faithful machine), I am happy to share that I finally struck gold and ice! I was so excited! I was metal detecting on the far end of Georgette’s garden, on the other side of a barrier that she put up to separate the garden from the path. As I was scanning in the grass over by an area where I remembered that she had mentioned that she had taken some pictures of her newly constructed creation, I got the perfect signal on my detector screen! It fell into the range of a possible white gold object. Because nightfall had almost set in, I took to the ground and carefully pinpointed the area where my metal detector had indicated the potential target. And there it was! I found it! I discovered Georgette’s missing snake style diamond engagement ring that meant the world to her! It held such sentimental meaning that she had cried on the phone earlier that morning when I had first talked with my client about what that special piece of jewelry had meant to her! The irreplaceable “symbol of love” was found deep down in the grass, just waiting for a ring finder to uncover it!

Minutes after I discovered the lost ring, I had the joy and privilege to unveil the news of my findings with Georgette and Rick! The young lady couldn’t control her emotions at the moment that I revealed before them the exquisite diamond ring that I had just metal detected on their property! It was a moment that I will not easily forget!

The couple was beyond grateful for my diligence and perseverance displayed during the time that I was in their backyard searching for the lost piece of jewelry! What a wonderful afternoon that was in serving Georgette and Rick! I gave much thanks to God for being my Ring Hero as He helped me to become one for this very special couple who were deeply in love with one another!

How to Find a Lost Ring Thrown in a Yard…Bel Air, Maryland

  • from Washington (District of Columbia, United States)

Niesh’s Spectacular Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Sparkling Once Again!

Peter’s Decision to Contact THE RING FINDERS Ultimately Returns Smiles to the Couple’s Faces!


If you want to find a lost ring that was thrown by you or a loved one during a time of stress, check out THE RING FINDERS website and contact a local RING FINDER metal detectorist in your area! That’s what Peter did and he got his wife’s engagement ring / wedding band back on her finger in nearly minutes!

I received a text from a very frustrated young man who spent a couple days searching with a metal detector for his wife’s lost engagement and wedding band (which were welded together) out in their backyard. Finally, when he gave up, Peter went online looking for additional help and eventually he came across THE RING FINDERS directory. He asked if I could be of assistance and I told Peter that I was more than excited to help him find Niesh’s missing ring.

Like many couples experience, Peter and Niesh had a heated moment between the two of them. At some point during the night of their conflict, Niesh took off her engagement ring / wedding band and placed it on her dresser. Out of anger, Peter took the sentimental 14 Karat White Gold, 3.5 Carat Diamond keepsake, opened the french doors to his rear deck located on the second floor of their house and chucked the beloved piece of jewelry as far as he could out onto the backyard lawn.

Over 50% of all of my ring searches have to do with rings that were lost due to a “throw” or “toss” during a couple’s argument. If you are reading this article and you had a similar situation, please do not feel condemnation for what took place. This is very common and there’s hope for you in recovering your lost ring, pendant or other keepsake. You must not waste time, emotions and physical energy…immediately call THE RING FINDERS to help you!

As I talked to Peter on the phone, I gathered all of the facts regarding the lost ring. Just like with an investigation, you have to ask all of the right questions before you can start to crack the case! We set up a time for me to come out the next morning to do my search. I assured the distraught young man that he would get his wife’s ring back to her and that he did not have to worry about a thing.

Early the next morning, around 6:30am, I started driving the hour and fifteen minute journey to the search site. I couldn’t wait to find the missing ring that Peter, his wife and several others could not recover from the backyard. People were walking all over the lawn searching for the jewel, and in addition to that, the metal detector that Peter acquired couldn’t do the job either in pulling the ring from the grass.

Once I arrived, my client took me to his backyard and shortly thereafter I started the hunt! Peter pointed out the approximate direction where he believed he saw the ring fly towards the ground. I explained to him that it is always helpful to get as much information as possible. However, because I find lost items in the complete opposite directions of where my clients thought their possessions had ended up, I leave all possibilities open on the table! I warned Peter not to worry if he saw me metal detecting in a totally unlikely area from where he thought he saw the ring fly. He agreed with a smile. All he wanted was to get his wife’s ring back and forget about what happened a couple days earlier.

My strategy entailed grid searching from the far left side of the property all the way to the right end of the estate. There was probably an acre of property back there, but I was only concerned with about 35 yards square to search. Rings can easily fly 100 ft or more depending on the circumstances so I had much territory to cover.

I finished the first grid line in about three or four minutes. Then, I returned back in the opposite direction to complete the second line. As I was completing the third line, my detector gave me the perfect target signal which lined up with the description of Peter’s wife’s ring. Because THE RING FINDERS’ detectorists (like myself) are experts in recovering rings, we know how to set up our detectors correctly and to discriminate out any unwanted signals. This was one signal that I was excited to receive in my headphones! Though the target was located on the far side of the lawn (opposite in the direction of where Peter believed he saw the band fly), I was almost certain that I had discovered Niesh’s ring. Before I even had a chance to kneel down to the ground to investigate the signal, my eyes had already locked on to the most beautiful and gorgeous looking piece of circular metal surrounded by diamonds everywhere! I found the missing ring! I couldn’t wait to break the news to Peter! He would finally be relieved of all of his worries and frustrations! That was the whole reason why he invited me into this important search to begin with! And I certainly delivered what he was looking for!

Moments later, I surprised Peter with the precious keepsake! He was certainly blown away by my successful efforts! The man could not believe that I had found the ring in less than 5 minutes of searching. Also, he was equally surprised that I found the band on the far opposite side of the lawn! He thought that it landed somewhere on the left side, but I found it much farther over to the right end of the lawn. This confirmed what I told him before regarding how I find things in the opposite directions of where people think their possessions had ended up!

Peter was wearing a face mask (due to the Covid-19 pandemic) so I couldn’t see his facial expressions when I surprised him with the ring. However, the way he excitedly moved about following the great news I shared, certainly showed me how he couldn’t believe that the nightmare was finally over! Now that I had found the very piece of jewelry that he presented to his wife when he asked her to marry her, and the same ring that he put on her finger on their wedding day, Peter could breathe easy again! He was so happy and extremely grateful for my recovery efforts!

As soon as I packed up my gear, I said goodbye to Peter and made my way down the road. The young man who was wise enough to call a professional ring finder, excitedly returned into his house with the ring that he so desperately sought after. He walked straight upstairs to the bedroom, woke up his sleeping wife, and with the warmest smile of love on his face, Peter presented his bride Niesh with the happiest surprise of her week! The young lady’s “other” special gem had finally returned home to her!




By far one of the most professional people that I’ve ever come across. Took my worry and made it his worry, in turn, he found my wife’s ring. I’m beyond words, when describing the happiness that I feel. I am grateful, appreciative and thankful for finding you Brian. Thank you snd I pray for the best in any and all of your endeavors!
