Lost Engagement Ring Gurley, AL…Found!

from Huntsville (Alabama, United States)
Contact: 1-610-504-6135

I had my first search as a Ring Finder today, and I’m happy to report that it was a success!!!

I received a call from Ginger this morning (Saturday, 16 February 2019).  She told me that she had lost her gold engagement ring on Wednesday (cold and rainy day) and that she’s had that ring for 34 years.  I’m 32, so she’s had that ring 2 years longer than I’ve been alive!  I knew I had to find it.  I grabbed my gear and headed her way.

I arrived at her farm in Gurley, Alabama.  Ginger explained that she had rented a metal detector and spent numerous hours trying to find her ring.  With no luck, she went on Craigslist to post an ad for help.  She saw my posting on there (which I had just renewed yesterday) for the Ring Finders.  Ginger told me that her ring meant a lot to her and she was devastated that it was lost.  She recently had it repaired and it was weighting heavier than before.  She showed me 2 spots that she thought it could’ve fallen off and I got to work.

The first area I searched was where she had tossed a tape measure.  Ginger had actually grabbed a bolt and reenacted the throw a few times before I got there.  I setup a grid and searched that area for about an hour, but no ring.

We moved on to the next spot, which was by a few hay bales that Ginger was working around.  She had moved a tarp off of the bales and was standing on top of one of the bales to help move a few.  I detected along her path there.  Next, I started detecting the sides and top of the bales.  I got a great signal on the top of the right hay bale.  I pulled out my pin pointer and saw that gold on gold, her lost engagement ring!!!  We were both so excited and Ginger was very happy to have her ring back!  It was such an awesome feeling to be able to reunite Ginger with her lost engagement ring!  Total search time was about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Ginger, it was a real pleasure to find your ring, and thank you for calling the Ring Finders!!!  As Chris Turner always says, I love my job!  I agree 100%

LOST ENGAGEMENT RING IN BREAUX BRIDGE, LA. – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

After Brennon and Alyssa rode their 4 wheeler along the muddy trails, they decided to call it a day. They parked at the area used to wash off the four wheelers and themselves. While washing her hands with a hose, Alyssa felt her engagement ring slip off her finger. They and other riders hunted for it from 8 PM till midnight with no success. The next morning they returned with a newly purchased metal detector to continue the hunt. After finding only foil, pennies and pop tops, Brennon looked at a YouTube video for hunting hints. He saw a “The Ring Finders” decal on a car in the video and went to our website. We got the call from Brennon on Sunday morning. Carrie and I were able to load our equipment and be on site in 1 ½ hours. The hunt area was relatively small but had quite a lot of trash. It was hard bottom with dead matted grass covered by 2 to 4 inches of mud. After 20 minutes of getting everything, including us, covered in mud, Carrie found the ring, tangled in the grass, under the mud. After some happy tears and pictures (and washing off mud from us and our equipment) we were heading home feeling great after reuniting Alyssa with her beautiful ring.

Thank you for your generous reward. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.

Josh called me asking help finding his Silver Wedding Ring. He had lost in the sand at Seal Beach, CA. He wasn’t quite sure of where the ring fell out of his beach chair cupholder. Josh had walked 100 yards across the sand before remembering his ring. When he checked the beach chair the ring was not there.

He found me on TheRingFinders website and called. When I talked to Josh, I only asked two questions, was it in dry sand and could he meet me there in a half hour?

Josh was a little nervous that the ring had fallen out on the long walk across the sand. Lately,  I’ve noticed that the rings seem to fall out of the chair just after they pick up the chair. One more time we were lucky to find the ring within the first three 20 ft. of grid passes. I like finding silver, there is a definite high tone in my earphones which is different from gold and aluminum pull tabs.

I took photos of Josh and his unique David Yurman silver ring. It was another great reunion of a special ring with its owner.

I left my home, met Josh on the beach, found the ring and was back home in less than two hours. ( 15 miles each way) I can’t believe it. I love doing this. Josh was very grateful for how we put this search together with the help of the internet and TheRingFinders website.

Lost Ring in a Field – Found in WI

lost ring in a field

Metal Detector Rental

I recently was contacted by a couple who lost a ring in a field. Problem was that the field it was lost in was also used for target practice. The guy felt pretty confident that the ring was lost in the field. He never took the ring off and noticed right away after coming into the house that his ring was missing.  He figured it was lost forever.

He thought about searching for a metal detector rental shop to help find his lost ring, but someone suggested that he call “that ring guy”.  I was recently on the news for a lost ring I found alongside the road.  Well, it was a good thing he called, because, after 2 visits, 4-5 hours and close to 100 bullets dug … I found his lost ring in a field.  Don’t waste your time looking for a metal detector rental shop – instead, call a professional from The Ring Finders.

 

LOST WEDDING RING – WASHINGTON, LA – FOUND

from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)
Contact: 1-337-280-3077

Tobi called on July 6th, 2 days after losing her platinum and diamond wedding ring. She felt it fly off when throwing a ball to her kids. Luckily, she heard it hit a landscape timber. That really narrowed the search area. Carrie and I jumped in the truck and drove the 40 miles to her house. Within 10 minutes, Sid got a strong 47 reading on his Garrett AT PRO. Right below the surface was the beautiful ring. After reuniting Tobi and her ring, we cooled down while having a nice visit with Tobi and her dad. Loaded up the truck and headed home. Thank you Tobi for your generous reward!

Lost Wedding Ring at Bus Stop in Sunnyvale-Found!

from Santa Cruz (California, United States)
Contact: 1-408-256-3796

In-Hee was waiting at the bus stop in Sunnyvale, in the Palo Alto-Mountain View-San Jose area. At one point, he reached down to brush the dust off his pants. A few brisk movements and he saw his white gold wedding ring fly off his finger into the thick clumps of fescue grass that lined the street. He searched for a couple of hours but could not find his ring. Then he searched online for metal detector rentals and found TheRingFinders. I made it up to the bus stop just a few hours after he lost the ring.

Take a look at the photos below: The grass clumps were THICK! I was unable to use my large metal detector, instead having to search around and through each clump with my handheld pinpointer. This meant a lot of crawling around on my hands and knees. Fortunately, unlike some public areas, the ground had very little trash: in the first half hour all we found were two pieces of aluminum foil, a penny, and a dozen large staples holding down the irrigation hoses. All of these signals were on the ground surrounding the clumps of grass.

Then, almost to the end of the area where In-Hee thought he might have been, I got the very first signal from inside a clump. It was a faint signal, hard to repeat, but when it did repeat, it was his ring, buried deep inside the clump. As you can see from the photos, it was impossible to find visually!

  

In-Hee was happy to get his ring back. This is how we like to wrap up ring searches!

Lost gold ring, Orlando, Florida….Found and returned!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Mark and his dear wife were in the middle of packing up their belongings for the big move and he could not stop thinking about the special gold ring he lost in the yard over 20 years ago. This unique ring was a gift to Mark from his late father, who hand crafted the ring from gold he collected as a dental technician. One day while washing his hands off in the yard he realized his ring must have fallen into the thick grass. Mark desperately looked around the spigot and along the short path he had taken from the garage, but could not find his lost gold ring. Years passed and Mark sort of gave up hope of ever getting his ring back and then the day came for him to sell his house and move to another location. As the moving day got closer, Mark toyed with the thought of renting a metal detector to look for his ring and that led him to one of my stories on theringfinders.com web site. Mark was intrigued with all the success stories and decided to give me a call. We made arrangements for Friday and I showed up ready for the challenge. Mark showed me the small area where he thought the ring was lost and I fired up my Garrett ATMax, set it to ZERO mode, ground balanced and put on just a little iron discrimination. (Mark was not real sure of the gold content of the ring and I did not want to miss being able to detect it.) I looked around the water spigot and gradually made my way out into the super thick St. Augustine grass! I dug a couple of pennies down four inches or so and 10 minutes into my search I got a solid signal that showed “50” on the display. Mark had watched me carefully dig the pennies with my 10 inch pointed screw driver and on this target he was ready with his shovel, assuring me he could pop out a nice big plug in no time. What could I say, it was his lawn! As I laid the big plug on it’s side I poked my trusty Garrett pro pointer into the dirt and it sounded off a good 8 inches down in the hole. And as I brushed the dirt from the target, a glint of gold showed itself and low and behold there was Mark’s long lost ring!! You talk about one happy camper! He gave me a big hug and then ran into the house to show his wife the ring and then he ran to the neighbors house to show them. What a thrill it was to dig up Mark’s ring and to see the sheer joy and happiness on his face. Maybe you have lost a ring and want me to try and find it for you! I would be honored to help! Call ASAP!

Lost Gold ring Carlsbad beach

from Carlsbad (California, United States)
Contact: 1-760-889-2751

 

TheRingFinders metal detecting service found and returned a lost Gold wedding ring at Carlsbad Beach.

It was 10:45 Friday night when I had recieved a text from Chris who just lost his Gold ring on the shoreline. I called him right away and He explained the story and exact location of where it may have slipped off when a Wave Crashed onto them at the water line.
I checked the Tide book and knew that it was high tide when this was lost and I would have to wait a few hours before I could thoroughly perform a water search with a Metal detector.
When I arrived to the scene at low tide,I  noticed right away that the Ocean had Naturally pushed in soft sand over the past few days plus the beaches slope down to the waters edge had a fresh belly with seaweed. This means that the Gold ring would be Deep,Very Deep.. So I set my equipment up to the deepest settings and began my search sweeping slowly and listening to those faint sounds. After an hour or so and a few Corona caps nearly 2 feet deep,,I had covered the entire soft slope to only wonder if this ring was down beyond depth of any Metal detector may reach or maybe there’s that slim chance it could be simply buried up in the dry sand?

I figured that I should just scan up above the area and to the entrance of where he walked to the beach from.Soon after griding the dry sand I heard a certain tone on this detector..
I stopped and just kept swinging my coil over the target this way,that way,while Smiling because I knew it…One scoop in the sand,Then out came this Gold Wedding Band that he has worn for 14years.  Thank you Chris for the kind reward.
