Lost Gold Charm Found in Sand Ocean City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey John Favano

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Lost a ring?

Don’t wait to call!


A few days ago Trey handed his gold chain and charm to his friend for safekeeping before he went swimming in the ocean in Ocean City, NJ. Unfortunately, his friend dropped the charm in the sand during the transfer. The jewelry is very sentimental to Trey because it once belonged to his grandfather Joe. His grandfather was a World War II Veteran and one of the oldest living World War II Veterans at the time of his passing last year at age 98. Trey reached out to me and asked if I could help find the charm. He gave me the general location of where it could be and I went out to search for it. After around an hour of gridding the beach, the charm was recovered. Trey was elated when I called him to let him know it was found.

Found, Wedding Band in the water near Pensacola Beach

  • from Orange Beach (Alabama, United States)

The shorebreak was still pounding on the beach this past weekend. Brett was playing in the surf when his ring slipped off his finger and disappeared in the foamy surf in about knee deep water. There was a strong down the beach current from the surf and Brett was afraid his ring got caught in the current. It was a big heavy ring with lots of area for the water to push on. He and his friends searched for quite some time with no success. Brett lived out of town and had go home but called me the next day and I said I would do my best to help. I started a search a few hours later based on Brett’s best recollection only to discover that the beach had change shape which is common on Pensacola Beach. The landmarks he relied on no longer existed. There were lots of people on beach the day before and once I got started searching four different people told me about the ring being lost and where it was lost, with each location being different in a 300 foot area! I called Brett and explained we needed to do a bit of detective work to locate the area to search. Fortunately he is very good at estimating distances. Based on structures off the beach, calculating the tide and waiting for the tide to reach the same depth as the time the ring was lost, I started the search again. Within about 45 minutes I got a good repeatable signal. Brett’s ring Apparently sank rapidly in the soft sand that was being agitated by the surf and soon was about 8 or 10 inch deep. After three scoops his ring was recovered. I immediately took a picture of the ring and sent it to him. It was a beautiful ring and Brett’s smile says it all. I was happy I could make his day.

Jared’s Fantastic 10 Karat White Gold Wedding Band Recovered by THE RING FINDER’S member, Brian Rudolph!

Jared Proudly Showing Off What Brian Rudolph Was Able to Accomplish in Recovering the Relieved Client’s Most Special Sentimental Keepsake!

How many people in the world do you think say this particular line: “I can’t find my ring”? It happens every minute, in every country around the world.

Call Item Recovery Specialist Brian Rudolph at (301) 466-8644! He Will Find Your Lost Keepsake in Any Environment: Land, Water, Sand, Cliffs, Snow, Leaves, Houses & Vehicles!

As sentimental, meaningful and lovely to look at, these little pieces of jewelry end up disappearing just about anywhere.

Most of the time, rings disappear outside during various types of physical activity. It also depends on the weather. If it’s very cold outside, there’s a strong possibility that the ring could slip off of a shrunken finger.

Maybe you lost a ring outside and you don’t know where it is. Check out this story and maybe it will help you with finding your lost precious keepsake.

Jared is another example of one who made that very famous statement mentioned above: “I can’t find my ring”. He looked everywhere for it and no matter how many times he went back to the places where he had been wearing his 10 karat white gold wedding band, all of his search efforts led to no avail.

Several weeks before I received a call from Jared requesting my help with finding is lost wedding band, the young man had been doing a lot of outdoor activities one weekend when he eventually noticed that his ring had disappeared off of his finger. He told me that he had been lawn mowing his Sterling, Virginia property, breaking up and bundling branches, weeding and attending to other gardening tasks.

At some point Jared went off mountain biking on a park trail not far from his residence. Little did he know that he would crash his bike as he was nearing a cable that was stretched across a trail entrance. There were no flags on the cable warning cyclists of the danger ahead and he just didn’t see what he was about to run right into.

Luckily, Jared was able to maneuver his two wheeler in such a way that he avoided hitting the cable and thankfully he only suffered minor injuries in the process. When my client realized that his wedding band was missing off of his finger sometime the next day, Jared wondered if his bike accident may have caused the special keepsake to jettison off of his finger during impact. He looked around the spot where he crashed in the park but he couldn’t find the ring anywhere. The disappointed young man took his search back to his house and checked out his entire lawn as best as he could and yet he still came up empty handed.

It was at the point when Jared said the words, “I CAN’T FIND MY RING”, that he began to search online for another solution to his problem. Even though he couldn’t confirm or deny whether or not the ring was eyeballed by someone walking along the path where his bike crashed or whether or not the sentimental keepsake was lost inside his home or somewhere around the lawn, he felt that hiring a professional metal detectorist was the best chance he had to solving the mystery of the disappearing ring. Almost immediately, Jared found the elite international directory of metal detecting specialists called THE RING FINDERS and that’s about the time when I received the gentleman’s call for help.

When I arrived at Jared’s house, he showed me around his property where he had been doing lawn work. He oriented me to where he broke up sticks and piled them up on the right side of the house. Then, he took me over to where he cut the lawn in the front of the estate and then guided me around the back and pointed out where he pushed the mower. Jared even remembered a time or two during his outdoor endeavors when he picked up a couple of sticks in the grass and threw them to get them out of the way when cutting the lawn.

Next, I followed my client by car over to the park where he crashed his bike. Once I got the full story as to where the collision took place, I returned to my vehicle to gather up my gear, place it all in my wagon and shuttled everything back to the crash site. Jared returned home while I conducted the search.

I spent about an hour of time detecting around the bike path and into the woods on every side. If the wedding band had flown off at the time of the crash, there was a good chance it rocketed into the woods up to 25 feet or more. I see this kind of thing happen quite frequently with a type of collision such as this. My conclusion turned out to be that there was no sign of the ring anywhere in that area and either someone eyeballed the jewel soon after Jared walked away from the scene or it didn’t come off until later on when the young man was working outside on the lawn that rest of the weekend.

After I packed up all of my metal detecting gear, I returned back to Jared’s home to start the second leg of my search. First, I detected the front right side of the lawn and swung my coil back and forth parallel with Jared’s drive way. Nothing of interest was found.

Next, for my second leg of the search mission, I moved farther up the property towards the pile of sticks that my client had pointed out when I had initially arrived to inspect the yard. Visibly nothing grabbed my attention. However, just as I swung the detector over the mound of wood, I got a very promising tone! Immediately I moved a few sticks out of the way to gain better access to whatever object was resting beneath the pile of branches.

Just as I began to scan over the ground with my machine (but much closer this time to the object than during my first attempt), the target sounded loud and clear in my headphones. The signal came up in the digital number range that matched a men’s wedding band. I then knelt down to the ground to use my pinpointer to zero-in on the object and that’s when my eyes beheld a very handsome 10 karat white gold wedding band settled between some grass blades below a few random sticks that were resting on top of the very sentimental keepsake! I was so thrilled!

Knowing that Jared and Sarah had no idea where the ring could have been lost and knowing it was a much more likely that my client lost the band out in the park during his bike incident, there was less hope in my mind that the ring would be found on the couple’s yard! Yet, in the end, that truly wasn’t the case at all! Jared’s white gold ring was in fact hiding under those sticks the entire time!

I couldn’t wait to surprise Jared shortly after discovering the location of the lost treasure! My client was beyond excited when he saw his most sentimental keepsake being presented back to him! Jared was extremely happy that he contacted THE RING FINDER’S website and ultimately brought me on board to help search and successfully recover his beloved “symbol of love”!

If you are like Jared and you happened to say the same line, “I can’t find my ring” – be encouraged… there’s someone out there that can help find it for you!

Mother’s Ring Lost While Pulling Weeds on Mother’s Day…FOUND Maysville, Alabama!

Christina McCree – Ring Finder for northern Alabama and southern/middle Tennessee…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135

This was my second of two ring searches on May 9th, 2022.  This one was in Maysville, AL for a 14K white gold mother’s ring and the first one was in Lincoln, AL for a 14K yellow gold wedding band.  It’s about a 2 hour and 15-minute drive between the two locations.  I’m very happy to report that both rings were successfully found!  Ring search #2…

I received a text message from Heidi on Sunday, May 8th, 2022.  This happened to be Mother’s Day and Heidi said that she lost her mother’s ring that same day.  Heidi explained that she was weeding the side of the driveway earlier in the day and noticed that the ring was missing shortly after.  I thought that this was a typical mother’s ring where the ring contains the children’s birthstones, but this was not the case.  This ring actually belonged to Heidi’s mother and was passed on to her.  It was in their family for about 65 years!  Unfortunately, Heidi’s mother passed away 2 years ago.  Heidi’s sister had the smaller rows of diamonds added.  Their mother had a hinge added to the ring when she developed rheumatoid arthritis.  Heidi said that the hinge would sometimes pop open, and she believed that the white gold ring came off while she was pulling the weeds.  She wasn’t wearing gloves.  This ring is extremely sentimental to Heidi and her family.  It was imperative that I find it.

The search was scheduled for the following day (Monday, May 9th, 2022) around 5pm when I got there after work.  However, I ended up getting a call for another lost ring in the Coosa River in Lincoln, AL.  I ended up going to that one immediately, because it was lost in a public area.  I like to go to those types of search ASAP to avoid the potential of someone else finding the ring.  If that happened the owner may never see the ring again.  I went to that search in Lincoln.  I thought it would be a quick one and I would make it to Maysville around the time we originally scheduled, but that Lincoln search ended up taking around 2 hours.  I didn’t make it to Heidi’s house in Maysville until just after 8pm.  I apologized profusely, but Heidi said that she understood due to where the ring in Lincoln was lost.  Heidi said that I could come back the following day, but I had my high lumens headlamp and flashlight with me, so it would be no problem.  I told her that I would do a quick scan and if I didn’t find it, I would come back the following evening for a more thorough search.

Heidi took me to the area where she had been pulling weeds from the side of her driveway on Sunday.  I had told her not to throw anything away, so Heidi left all of the weeds in front of that spot.  The search area wasn’t too big, so I thought that I had a good chance for a recovery that night.  I turned on my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector with the 10×5 Coiltek coil and started my search.  The first signal I checked turned out to be wires from an electrical pole.  I kept going and the next signal I had was a loud and solid tone in the lady’s gold range.  I bent down to check it with my Garrett AT Pro pin pointer.  I parted a couple of leaves and saw that shine of white gold beaming back at me!  I looked back at Heidi and said, “GOT IT!”  Heidi was shocked, because I had just started searching.  She quickly came over and her eyes locked on her mother’s ring.  She bent down, picked it up, and gave me the biggest hug!  I could feel the stress melt away and tears of happiness.  Best feeling in the world!  I’m so blessed that I get to do this.

We determined that the hinge had popped open and caused the ring to come off.  Heidi said that she was going to take it to the jeweler and get it fixed.  We walked over to the front porch to take some pictures.  Heidi’s husband, Bart, walked out and gave me a big fist bump.  He said, “thank you for making my wife happy!”  We chatted for a few minutes, and I got a few more hugs from Heidi.  Heidi is the owner of Flint Ridge Farm, a full-service horse boarding and teaching facility.  If you’re ever in the Maysville, Alabama area, please check them out!

While it was a long day between working half a day and going on 2 ring searches, the searches/returns are the thing that I love doing the most and were well worth the effort!  I praise God for another successful recovery!  I wonder what type of adventure the next call will bring…

FOUND with Metal Detector…Lost Gold Wedding Band in the Coosa River Lincoln, Alabama!

Christina McCree – Ring Finder for northern Alabama and southern/middle Tennessee…call or text ASAP, anytime 24/7…610-504-6135

This turned out to be my first of two ring searches on May 9th, 2022.  This one was in Lincoln, AL for a 14K yellow gold wedding band and the second one was in Maysville, AL for a 14K white gold mother’s ring.  It’s about a 2 hour and 15-minute drive between the two locations.  I’m very happy to report that both rings were successfully found!  Ring search #1…

I received a call from Austin just before noon on Monday, May 9th, 2022.  Austin stated that he lost his 14K yellow gold wedding band the day prior (Mother’s Day) while walking to his boat in 2-4 feet of water in the Coosa River (part of Logan Martin Lake) in Lincoln, Alabama.  Austin told me that he’d been married less than a year and desperately wanted his ring back.  He also dropped his sunglasses in the water.  Austin spent about 2 hours searching for his sunglasses and wedding band.  He was able to find the sunglasses, but unfortunately, came up empty handed on the ring.  He went online for ways to recover it and came across a service he never knew existed…The Ring Finders!

I had the other ring search scheduled for when I got off work that day.  I thought I could leave immediately for Lincoln, AL and help Austin find his ring, then head to Maysville for the second ring search.  I put in a leave request at work and started gathering up my gear.  I arrived in Lincoln around 3pm and met Austin by the water.  I quickly changed into my wetsuit pants and grabbed my detecting gear.  Austin showed me where he was wading through the water, where his boat was parked, and where he found his sunglasses.  He said that he never saw or felt the ring come off his finger, but he noticed it was missing within 30 minutes after his boat ride.

I started a north/south grid search in the area Austin found his sunglasses at.  I then expanded my grid to where he walked towards the dock and then the other side by where his boat was parked.  Unfortunately, I only found some trash, fishing sinkers, and a nickel.  I then worked an east/west grid making sure I covered the entire area really well.  I asked Austin questions on whether he shook his hands, threw anything, etc.  Austin said no and that I had pretty much covered all the spots he was at.

I decided to continue searching towards the shoreline just in case Austin’s recollection was slightly off.  Within a few minutes I got a screaming signal in the gold range about 20 feet from the original search area.  I took one scoop and had a ring in my basket!  I told Austin that I got it.  He said, “NO WAY!!!”  With a big smile I replied, “there’s a yellow gold ring in my scoop!”  I picked it up and asked him if there was an inscription.  Austin quickly said, “all my love”.  This was it!  Austin couldn’t believe it, because he said he didn’t walk over that far.  I’ve had a couple of searches that turned out this way.  Just another great learning experience to remember– always keep expanding the grid!

I walked over to the dock where Austin was standing and handed him his wedding band.  He said that he thought he’d never see it again and this was the best thing ever!  I’m so happy that he has his ring back and it was honestly found at the last minute where it shouldn’t have been.  Thank you, God, for another successful recovery!  I’m so proud to be a member of Chris Turner’s online directory of metal detecting specialists, The Ring Finders!  Write-up of search #2 to follow…
