I received a phone call from Jason who lost his ring in his backyard last night. He said that while trying to get his dog to come into the house and swinging his arm showing the dog where to go, his ring came off, hit the side of the house and then disappeared. Jason did not sleep well this night thinking about his lost ring, so in the morning he went to a local store to purchase a in-expensive metal detector. After a couple of hours using his new detector and finding nothing, Jason’s wife search on Goggle, “how do I find my ring lost in my backyard” and up popped, “The Ring Finders” website. A few clicks later she found me and gave me a call.
I showed up and after about 15 minutes I found Jason’s ring some 20′ away under their picnic table. It’s amazing how far rings can go and where the can land.
Here is a link to my short video showing the recovery of Jason’s ring. Enjoy.
Thursday October 3 2019. At 7.15 pm my phone rings and on the other end is a young lady, Mai, who is a sophomore at Thompson Community College (CC) in Dryden NY. Mai was walking between the classrooms and her dorm when her “promise” ring fell off along the walkway.
Her ring is SS and cannot be resized, and although the ring fits OK during the summer months, now with fall and soon winter coming the cold makes everyone’s fingers lose at least ¼ ring size and during the coldest times up to ½ ring size. And today the weather was RAIN and temps dropping down into the 50’s. Wet and cold, perfect weather for losing a ring.
Although I would have liked to wait until tomorrow to search for her ring, I could tell by her voice that she was devastated on the lost of the ring. She was truly a “damsel in distress” and she was calling me to rescue her. How could I resist.
It was going to be a wet cold search in the dark so I rounded up my warm weather gear, headlamp and all the MD equipment that I needed and started down the road for a 1 hour drive both ways.
Upon arriving at the CC, I called her and she met me in the parking lots next to the trail where she lost the ring. We exchanged greetings, I fired up the machine and “a searching we will go”. There was a buried wire running along next to the walkway that carried power for the light poles that was giving me a little problem but I worked thru that and was able to do a good grid search It took me about ¾ of a hour but soon there came the sold sound of a SS ring. I could not see it as it had worked its way well down into the grass but when I “raked” the grass with my fingers I felt the ring. So I palmed the ring, stood up and ask her a question about the ring. When she answered, I then opened my hand and said, “Then this must be your ring”. Screams of joy, and yes I think a few tears. Another successful search.

Just had the opportunity to reunite Michelle Mader with her lost heirloom, A gold wedding band with diamonds. A tip led me to a park in Haddonfield NJ where she lost it on Saturday. Using my Minelab Equinox 800 with “15 coil in Park 1 mode, I lowered the sensitivity and backtracked her path. Solid ground and tall grass made me believe it was still on top of the ground. About 15 minutes in as I swung and got a strong 9 reading I looked down and there it was. Needless to say she was sooo happy. A big smile came across her face. Doing ring returns have got to be the best part of this hobby for me!!!
I was approached by Adriana’s father and he asked if could help find his daughters lost silver claddagh ring. She had taken the ring off and placed it in her backpack and then went to get something out of the bag and the ring fell out. The ring is now back on the finger.
If you lose something don’t wait give a call!

I received a voice mail from Matt saying his wife lost her wedding ring in their yard. After trying a cheap detector from a local store and searching their yard on their hands and knees, they began looking for detecting services on the web. They found me on Ring Finders and I was able to travel and search the following day. I began searching with my Garrett ATPRo and got a great signal after about 5 min. I was able to pinpoint the ring which was deep in thick grass. They were so excited I found it and apologized that I had to drive an hour and a half for five min. of searching. I am just glad I could make their day and see the smile on their faces. This is why I am a part of Ring Finders.
Most people will rent or buy a metal detector to find their lost ring. The only thing is if you’ve never used one you will have a slim chance in finding your ring. The members and myself from TheRingFinders.com have many years of experience and the know how…This search today didn’t need the use of the detector…How many people who would have rented a detector would have found this ring? One thing we all do is think out of the box. Lynn was shaking a towel over her balcony when her 2 rings flew off her finger…
She found one ring in the small rocks very quickly. No need for a metal detector for that ring…But where did the second ring go? Maybe into the garden/rhododendron bushes but it would have been an easy eye ball search. I asked Lynn if there was a chance the ring could have slipped off finger in the house? She question herself and went inside to look. I stood there and thought… one ring fell on the rocks and why not the second ring?
Just then I notice a dip alongside of the foundation of the house, the rocks sunk into the ground in a very small area so I took a knee and had a look and BINGO there was the ring! I was so happy!
I was able to surprise Lynn, I have the greatest job in the world! I get to make people smile!

Larry called me from their vacation apartment down by the Disney area and asked if I could help him and his wife, Danielle, find her lost diamond engagement ring. Apparently they were out late the night before and while walking back to their room, Danielle had taken all her jewelry off and handed everything to Larry. After entering the apartment Larry put all the jewelry on the dining table and they then retired for the night. The next morning they got up later than normal and eventually Danielle went to collect her jewelry and to her horror, she could not find her diamond engagement ring! They immediately retraced their steps from the previous night and by this time it was around 12:00 noon. They looked for a couple of hours and that is what led them to contact me, thru theringfinders.
I packed up my gear and an hour and a half later met Larry and Danielle and began my sidewalk and bushes search. For the next three and a half hours I scoured the bushes with my metal detector and probed my pro pointer into every nook and cranny and no ring! It was just nowhere to be found. As I put my detector away I tried to console Larry and I encouraged him to make up some posters and put them on the palm trees along the area where they had walked. We said our goodbyes and I headed for home and I must admit I was a bit discouraged not being able to find Danielle’s ring.
A couple of days later I was looking on line and thought I would check out “Craigslist Orlando” and see if anything was posted in the “lost and found” section. As I scrolled down I noticed a post labeled “Found engagement ring, Kissimmee” posted on the same day I was called by Larry and my heart skipped a beat! Could it be?? I fired a text to Larry and directed him to the post and in my heart I was praying this would be the miracle they needed. (You see, Larry and Danielle originally had a small zirconium in her ring and just recently had it replaced with a rather beautiful, large diamond and they had applied for insurance on the ring but the paper work was not yet completed.) Apparently the person who made the post had actually found Danielle’s ring in the early morning as they were heading to Universal Studios and she kept it safe all day. On her return to their apartment that night she saw a security guard and turned the ring over to him, trusting that he would take it to the proper “Lost and Found” at the resort main office. Larry called the main office over the next 3 days and each time he was told that no ring fitting that description had been turned in. Sadly Larry and Danielle had to return home to Pennsylvania but he continued to call. The frustrating thing was knowing that the ring had been turned over to “trusting hands” and then not being able to locate it. Finally Larry suggested that the “authorities” be informed and “Bingo!!!” The lost and found people called a half hour later to say they had located Danielle’s ring and she could pick it up. I offered to pick it up and mail it to them but Danielle insisted in flying to Orlando and picking it up in person. The following Saturday we met Danielle and had the pleasure of seeing the sheer joy on Danielle’s face and to experience an amazing moment in her life. It truly was an honor to meet Larry and Danielle and to have a part in helping them get their ring back!

Dr. Greg emailed me on Saturday afternoon to see if I was available to help him find his lost wedding ring in his back yard. So we made arrangements to meet the next day to conduct a thorough search. Upon arriving I was told that the family had searched for three days with a low end metal detector. Gregg and his wife have been married for 25 years and a couple of their children were letting me know that I really needed to find their father’s lost ring, so that they, (the parents) could continue to be married again. Cute, hey? Apparently one of the boys had gotten a small drone stuck in one of the large oak trees and Greg was using a soccer ball to try and knock the drone free of the branches. He was throwing the ball straight up with force, using a two handed under throw and after a couple of throws he suddenly felt his ring go flying. Thankfully I had a test ring with a small piece of brightly colored ribbon attached to it and I asked Greg to do a couple of test throws. This gave us a good indication of the direction I needed to begin my search. It wasn’t long until I got a great shallow signal in the thick grass and sure enough there was Greg’s lost wedding ring. (I was using my Whites DFX metal detector in the Prospecting Mode, as there was allot of electrical interference and the usual Coin and Jewelry Mode was way to noisy.) It was a real pleasure to help Greg and his family and I hope he is able to get the ring resized so as not to loose it again!
