Gorgeous platinum and diamond engagement ring lost in Richfield, MN – Now found!

from Saint Paul (Minnesota, United States)
Contact: 1-206-930-7228

Colleen and her fiance had just finished raking, bagging and setting bagged leaves out in the road in front of their house when Colleen noticed that her platinum engagement ring was no longer on her finger; so they immediately put the bags of leaves in the garage and started searching.

They searched everywhere: the back yard where they bagged the leaves, the spot in the backyard where they temporarily set the bags, in front of the house where they placed the the bags to be picked up.  They even dumped out and searched two of the bags of leaves, but they still came up empty-handed.  So they purchased a metal detector to help in the search, but the metal detector was beeping at everything and didn’t have much depth.  That’s when they decided call for help.

I got the call the following day and made arrangements to come out and find the ring that evening.  Colleen was visibly upset and I knew we had to find it.  First I gridded the front yard, but came up with nothing.  The same thing happened with the back yard and out by the street.  That left just two places where the ring could still be found: inside the garage in one of the bags or in the leaves from one of the bags still spread out on the garage floor.

I first searched the leaves on the floor and the ring was not there.  So we decided to see if we could detect the ring in any of the bags full of leaves without dumping them out.  I got a good solid hit on the first bag we tried and told Colleen that this was probably her ring.  So I dumped the leaves out on the floor and found the solid signal: a large piece of foil!   This was very disheartening to us all.  What were the chances that a large piece of foil would be in that bag?

I continued to search the dumped out leaves from that same bag and very quickly got another solid signal.  I let Colleen and her fiance know that it could be the ring, but I really didn’t want to get their hopes up again only to find another piece of foil.  I uncovered the object in the leaves and exclaimed This sure looks nice and shiny to me!’.  And, sure enough, it was Colleen’s engagement ring!

Interesting to note: they had emptied and searched that same bag that we found the ring in.  They emptied it on the garage floor, searched the leaves and bagged them them back up.

We were all thrilled to see the ring back on Colleen’s finger!

Lost gold ring in backyard…South Surrey, BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was at work when I got a call from a young lady who said that he daughter lost her ring that was given to her by her bother. She said that she googled and found TheRingFinders and thought that she would give it a chance.

I could tell she was a little sceptical but most people are until you find what they’ve lost then they become belivers!

She told me that they had a wedding party in their back yard and that’s where her 9 year old daughter was last seen with the ring.

I arrived at her place in the evening and it was dark but that is fine for me! I don’t mind working at night and sometimes its easier and not as hot.

She showed me where her daughter said that she’d lost the ring and after a couple of minutes and no ring I just expanded the search a little and bang! There was her ring sitting in the yellow grass and hard to see but my detector see’s it all…

Heirloom Diamond Ring Lost and Returned..

from Del Mar (California, United States)
Contact: 1-858-945-0180

So Kathy called me on Tues afternoon and told me about her husband’s ring, lost in the surf at Torrey Pines State Beach 2 days prior on Sunday, right around high tide which would turn out to be fortunate for all of us.  The ring belonged to his dad who passed away 25 years ago. It has immense significance to the family and I could tell its loss was devastating. He had been boogie boarding with his son in waist deep water when it slipped off his finger.  He knew exactly the moment he lost it and though they gave it a valiant try, recovery would be impossible as the surf that day was brutal. Kathy gave me a vague description of where it was lost and agreed to meet with me on the beach the next morning at low tide.  I arrived early the next morning and started hunting the general area. When she arrived, Kathy was able to narrow down a 100’ length of beach and gave me the approx distance her husband had been from shore. Now this is where it gets good. She wandered off and I started at the North end of the search area and walked straight out into the surf. About 30 feet out in waist high water, in less than 5 minutes, Wham!! I got that unmistakable low tone. The surf was persistent and I missed it on the first couple scoops. It dropped to the bottom of the hole and I almost lost the tone. I dug frantically between rollers and finally got a good sound next to the hole.  A second later it was safely clanking around on stainless. It was a beautiful old diamond ring. By now, Kathy had wandered way up the beach so I took a picture with my cell phone and texted it to her with no comment, just the pic :).   I’ve never seen anyone run so fast on the beach with a kid in her arms :).   After a really cool emotional reunion and an incredible face time conversation with her husband, I left them to enjoy the morning.  Ring returns are always fun and rewarding but this one was freaking awesome!! I am so happy I could bring happiness to these guys. It was so worth the time and effort.  It was a real joy to meet you Kathy and I really appreciate your token of gratitude.

Nothing too unusual about this story.  Just the same old “He lost his ring when it slipped off his finger in the back yard when he was throwing colored powder at his friends and family during a “Holi” celebration also known as the festival of colors in India” Happens every day right? 🙂 Josh contacted me on Tuesday, we met up on Wednesday and in less than 15 minutes I ran my coil over his gorgeous wedding ring. Everyone was a winner that afternoon. Josh got his ring back and I got to be a hero:). I also received a very nice monetary reward. Thanks Josh..

Platinum ring lost and returned at Del Mar, Dog Beach

from Del Mar (California, United States)
Contact: 1-858-945-0180

A few minutes after arriving home from a Sunday night hunt the day before Labor Day I received a call from Shakeh. She and her family were in San Diego for a few days and were enjoying a beautiful Sunday on the beach at Del Mar. Suddenly, their vacation pretty much came to a halt when her Husband lost his wedding ring while wading in the San Dieguito River. Her girlfriend had told her about a metal detecting service so she looked it up, found The Ring Finders and called me.  I agreed to look for it the next morning.  Now this river can be very difficult to hunt.  The current doesn’t match the tides so you never know which way and how fast the flow will be. Also it can sand in very quickly, sometimes adding a foot or two along its banks over night. All this, coupled with the fact that he had lost it in knee high water at mid tide was going to make this hunt quite a challenge. So I started at 5AM. The surf was high and coming all the way up the river and the current was running about 4 knots. In these conditions it was pretty much impossible to grid. I continued my search until 9AM with no luck. I was about to leave when I got a strong feeling that I should try to give her one last shot. I called the Wife, put 3 bucks in the meter and went back to work. An hour later this beautiful solid platinum band was clanking around in my scoop. Man what a feeling! I texted Shakeh and met up with her and her two daughters in the parking lot of their hotel where I was rewarded with hugs, muffins and a nice monetary gift.  Shakeh said that what I had done for them was priceless. Well I can tell you that having the experience of seeing the expression of pure joy on her face when she saw her “lost forever” treasure, that’s priceless!!

Thanks for making my day Shakeh and for the nice reward.

Lost Tiffany Silver Pendant UBC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

The other day I received a call from a young lady by the name of Ciara that had lost a very special small Silver Tiffany Pendent in the shape of a bean. This bean was a symbol of love given to her by her mother.  Ciara is a rugby player for UBC (University British Columbia) and at practice she forgot to take her pendent off and during the workout it was ripped off her neck by accident.

She was very smart to make a mental note to the exact location it was ripped off her neck. This is fantastic as it makes the search much more easier when we can focus the search in a small area, specially when the item is so small.

I asked the type question that I always do to make sure I was in the right area and I had her put out some red cones to mark the search area.  After 10 minutes or so I bent down to check out a signal with my pin pointer and saw a little silver bean in the grass!

I put it in my hand and walked over to Ciara to ask her a few more questions and then held out the bean so she could see that I found it…I love when I can surprise people and she was surprised!!

I found out that the silver bean was her good luck charm,  she felt it helped her on her tests and on the rugby field. I’m happy that she has it back! Good Luck on your rugby season!!!

Lost Gold Ring Found at Fort Myers Beach

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

imageJuly 2, 2015

We received an email from Josh Thompson requesting our help to locate his white gold wedding band that had slipped off his finger while swimming and playing with his family at Fort Myers Beach.

Josh who resides in Melbourne, FL was vacationing at Bel Air Beach Club on the north end of the island. He and his family were leaving the next morning, so we made arrangements to perform the search later the same evening.

When we arrived Josh proceeded to tell us he had spent simageeveral hours snorkeling trying to find the ring on his own.  When those attempts  failed, he looked to the Internet to search for a metal detector rental shop.  He called a Google listing for detector rental.  However, the shop was located in a different state. The shop owner, though, referred Josh to theringfinders.com website and that’s how he came in contact with us.

Josh then proceeded to take us to the location of the missing ring on the beach.  We arrived at low tide which made the search efforts ideal. My wife and I equipped with our Minelab Excaliburs began our search.    In less then 45 minutes, we were able to find the ring and return it back to Josh!  Glad we could be a part of another successful ring recovery.

 

Lost Women’s Silver Rings in Grandview Heights, OH. “FOUND”

Contact: 1-740-334-7293

I received a call about a pair of lost silver rings in the backyard somewhere. The rings have more sentimental value than they do monetary value. They were lost by a simple over head toss of a ball into the netted trampoline by his wife. And there went the rings flying through the air to be lost forever. After they search and search though the grass for the rings with luck, that is when they call me to do a search. I found one ring and a couple of feet later there was the other, both tuck into the grass from out of eye site. His was very happy to have the rings return back to them.

I can hunt for any lost class ring or jewelry item no matter how long ago it was lost. Most items arent too deep in the ground to find. All you need is an idea of the area where you lost it and that is a starting point.

Hello!  My name is Josh Kimmel.  I recently joined The Ring Finders.  I am very involved with metal detecting and have a true passion for this hobby / lifestyle as well as a passion for recovering history in all of it’s forms.  My passion for metal detecting goes beyond just merely trying to find pieces of the past, I also have a passion for helping others locate those special lost items that they thought may have been lost forever.  That’s right!, I enjoying trying to help others find these items and strive to reunite people with their items.  Jewelry such as class rings, wedding bands, engagement rings, gold, silver, platinum and other rings and jewelry to keys and even property markers.  I have been asked to search for many different things and strive to do my best to locate them when possible.   One of my favorite returns was of a silver and platinum class ring that had been lost for approx. 31 years when I one day found it and tracked the owner down to return it to her within 2 weeks.  When people lose that precious, sentimental item it can be very distressing and I do what I can.  Each lost item is unique and has a story of it’s own.  When that item is lost by someone that story doesn’t have to end.    With a recovery that story can continue.

 

If you are in the Celina, OH or Grand Lake St. Mary’s area or even the Ohio counties of Mercer, Auglaize, Van Wert, Allen and other outlying areas I just may be able to help.  Why try to rent a metal detector or find a metal detector rental to try and locate your lost sentimental item or a particular metal item you would like found when you can contact a metal detector specialist that will use many years of experience as well as some of the best equipment to try and locate that item for you.  Forget renting the detector and get a detectorist!

 

My years of experience and the equipment I use enable me to find and locate many different metal items in all terrains.  Parks, private yards, school yards, tot lots, beaches, snow, water(up to 5ft deep), fields, woods, hillsides and anywhere else for that matter.  Rings, jewelry, property markers, cache hunting, property searches and so on I’m always trying to help people with my experience.  I even offer my services to Realtor s, Law enforcement, and insurace companies as well others and do what I can to help.

 

If you are in or around any of the above mentioned or surrounding areas of Ohio contact me and we can discuss the situation.
