I received a call from Meg who told me she dropped her wedding band in the sand in Avalon, NJ. After speaking to her and asking several questions about where and how she lost it, I started my search. I detected for about 40 minutes without any luck. Since she knew exactly where she dropped the ring, I knew it couldn’t be in the sand and had to be somewhere else. I asked her to check her bag again and sure enough it was there. It must have fallen into something inside the beach bag. The ring was found in the last place that we looked and went right back on her finger!
In celebration of her pregnancy Suzy & Kostek decided to go to Cape May,NJ for their babymoon. Enjoying beautiful scenery,beach and resorts they decided to treat themselves to a local day spa. They both removed their wedding rings and put them in a compartment in her pocketbook. While paying her husband retrieved his wedding band and seen her 2 rings (engagement & wedding band) in the compartment. Unfortunately it was pouring rain outside so they had to move quickly back to the car. Just a few minutes later they arrived at a restaurant a few blocks away. Again moving quickly from the car to the restaurant entrance. When they got to the counter Suzy decided to put on her rings but they diamond engagement ring was gone! They quickly began retracing their steps back to the car,searching the sidewalk and surrounding area but no ring? Unfortunately their relaxing time had changed for the worse to a panic and restless evening. That’s when they found out about The Ring Finders lost jewelry recovery services. They contacted a local metal detectorist in the Cape May area (Jeff Lagg) but unfortunately was out of town on vacation but directed them to me.
Arriving at the day spa the following morning we went over her steps one by one and began searching the area inside and out of the spa. No luck inside on floors,chairs or entrance way. moving outside I searched the stone/gravel parking lot and landscaping but no ring so we decided to move on to the restaurant around the block. Again we searched the areas but still no ring? I told her something just doesn’t seem right and I assured her that if it was there I would have found it. I asked about her pocketbook and the car? She stated they had searched them but we decided to search them again. Looking in the car with no luck we examined the pocketbook and discovered a tiny slot where the lining thread had come undone that I couldn’t even get my finger tip into but we could feel the ring between the lining lol! What a sense of relief came over her face as we all laughed about the situation lol! They were very thankful for my thoroughness and services. I was glad to see her smiling and enjoying her Babymoon again! Congratulation Suzy & Kostek! Recovery #103
I received a call from John asking for my help recovering his wedding band he had lost the day before while on the beach. I had recovered a friend of his wedding band a few years back that was lost in the ocean in Long beach Island,NJ so he figured he’d give me a try? I arrived at the location where we had made arrangements at the private beach club to search the area where the ring was lost. I marked off the area and began my grid search waiting for John to arrive. After a few minutes of digging coins & trash John arrived and confirmed that I was in the right area but could probably shrink it down some more then what I had marked out. I told him I like to think outside the box and decided to just keep the search area the size I had chose since he told me that he moved his beach chair a few times throughout the day. About 20 minutes later there was his ring in my scoop! I called out to John and held his ring up! He was just amazed that i had found it and that was found just outside the area where he thought it was lost in so was glad I chose to go bigger. He was very excited and grateful for my service and looked forward to telling his wife the great news! Another great day of the beach! Recovery #102
I received a call asking for my help to recover a mans wedding ring that was lost in the lake at a campground. I had done 2 previous recoveries at this lake earlier in the summer and felt confident I would be successful in this recovery also. As I arrived at the lake and speaking with the customer,he explained that the ring had come off while throwing a football in about chest deep water. He showed me the general area and I setup my White’s MX Sport waterproof metal detector and began the search. After an hours hunt and no ring in the scoop yet I was starting to get worried the search would not be a success? I decided to look further from the area he described and a few minutes later there it was in my scoop,my 100th lost ring recovery!!! Success!!! What an awesome feeling it was to not only tell him I found it but reach such a great milestone in my recovery service! Another awesome recovery! #100 is in the scoop!!
