A familiar truck pulled into my driveway and asked if I was free to look for a ring that was lost on a nearby property. Ben hadn’t been married more than a month when he managed to fling his ring off his finger and out the back of the truck while unloading material. Ben, his brother, & cousin looked for a while but the length of the grass and other debris made the success of a visual search nearly impossible. They had a good idea of where it should be, even tossed a nickel to simulate the loss (which I found), but like other ring finds they were a little surprised when my CTX 3030 sounded off where it did. We discussed a lot of theories of how it got there, bottom line, he had it back and was no longer fearing the dog house!
Glad I could help Ben and please pass along to others the good work of The Ring Finders.
My customer was pruning rhododendrons and moving debris when he noticed his wedding band missing. He felt the ring loosen earlier in the cold damp weather but only had a little more to trim so he continued working. He visually searched around the plants, adjoining property high grasses, and the debris bin until nightfall with no luck. That evening he was focused on finding a professional with the correct equipment and experience to help find his wedding ring. His email read “I came across your website and it’s clear you’ve helped many other people with similar situation.” An email exchange and a morning search netted the heavy 14k wedding band that I found in knee high grass; a great way to start October! Thank you for the call.

Nina explained how her daughter had lost a special ring from Ellie’s grandmother and asked if I could help. I grabbed a couple detectors and arrived at Draper Girls Orchard about 12 miles South of Hood River. Pictures showed the ring on Ellie’s finger at the washstand after picking fruit so it had to be between there, the goat feeding area and their car. As we walked the area Ellie explained how soapy water and sibling horseplay may have contributed to the ring loss… that’s where I started and within minutes I had the special 18k ring in hand. Nina & Ellie were both overjoyed and surprised I had found it there since all family members had spent a few hours looking. The right tools & experience, like all professional services, makes all the difference!
My wife and I had a great post-find chat with Nina & Ellie whose family was in the Hood River area, from Philadelphia, for the eclipse, kite surfing, and a snow skiing racing camp. Sounds like a great adventure and now it’ll be a little happier! Thank you for the call.
Joey, while visiting Oregon, lost his wedding band at Oneonta Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. I found the ring in about 5′ of water and mailed it back to him in San Francisco. The video describes the event and shows the beautiful gorge & falls.
Thank you for the call Joey and I was very happy to find and return such a special memento!
Dennis lost his gold wedding band after finishing a round of golf. His normal routine was to attach the ring to his watch and place them both in his bag. On the fringe of the 18th green he removed both, needed to move, but didn’t recall the details of the loss just that he was in a few locations around the green when he noticed the ring was gone. He looked for it visually a few times, alerted the clubhouse, and posted a 3-round golf reward. Forward to our meeting 3 weeks later… Dennis described me as his last hope! I brought 2 of 7 detectors I own, chose the one I felt would be best for the task, and a few minutes later I uncovered Dennis’ wedding band entangled in the short grass. Excitement… handshakes, high fives, hugs, laughter and shock… have I mentioned I love providing this service for folks!
If you purposely drop a ring on the fringe of a green, even step on it, it’s right there in plain sight, but it’s odd how they can also disappear – Call a member of The Ring Finders to find that special memento that you think you should see but don’t.
Thank you for the call Dennis and please share your shock and joy with others.
Portland Oregon & The Columbia River Gorge I will travel nearly any distance to recover your special memento!
“In the Dog House”, with a title like that I was pretty sure I had a mission. While Mark was upgrading his sprinkler system he lost his wedding band, or so he thought. He rented a metal detector & squished the mud from the re-dug sprinkler heads through his fingers but came up empty. Time to call in professional help. I did a thorough scan of the front yard hoping to not have to dig up the yard but that wasn’t the case. We dug one head, then a second, and that’s when the Garrett pinpointer sang out, Marks gold wedding band, mission complete!
A plain gold band, no way, they all have a story and Marks is special to him. Hand engraved by an Artisan, in both his and Janet’s rings, is ‘Mo Anam Cara’ which in their ancestral heritage, Old Gaelic Celtic, means “my soul friend”. Mark said, “it very much represents our relationship”.
Thank you Mark for the call, I very much enjoyed our post-find conversation, all the best.
Ashley lost two dainty, local artisan, gold wedding rings at the Black Rock Mountain Bike Complex West of Salem. It was a needle in the haystack kind of search but after 3 hours and multiple locations I was able to recover the engagement ring! Short video tells the rest of the story.
I really enjoyed our conversations and walk in the woods today, Thank you for the call Ashley and all the best!
