November 2021 Martina called asking for help. She explained that she was in her friends car sitting in the front passenger seat. She had just put hand sanitizer on and her engagement ring slipped out of her grasp. After stopping the car in her driveway the girls were very cautious searching absolutely every place they could however they were unable to locate her engagement ring. This engagement ring came from her fiancés mother and Thanksgiving was just days away. Martina could not bear the thought of hang to tell her future mother-in-law the sad news.

Desperate and frantic to find a solution after searching the car several times with no success lead her to a Google search that landed her at TheRingFinders.com She put her local zip code in and found my listing. After reading my profile page she was convinced enough to give me a call seeking some professional help. I reassured her that I have experience and special tools for this exact type of search and that I would do all I could to find the ring if its still there to be found. I also reassured her I’d be able to search her front yard if the ring didn’t show up in the car.

We met at her friends home where I was greeted with a very clean car.  Never assuming anything I had to ask her if the car was this clean during the time of the loss or if it had been picked up at all. She assured me            the car was in the same condition since the loss. As experienced finders we have learned to ask a lot of investigative questions to draw as many details as possible. If there had been other bags or garbage in the car this could leading to other potential hiding spots as to where a lost ring could get transported out of its initial location. I as happy to hear on the search that car was as clean as the day of the loss. This drove some confidence that the ring might sill be in the vehicle. Keeping a positive frame of mind always helps with any search. After searching under the passenger seat with my video endoscope and bright LED flashlight there was one hot spot that had to be checked. The HVAC vent under the seat. These are typically like a plastic duct system designed to direct heating and cooling towards the back seat passengers. Rings bing heavy in nature will often make their way to the lowest parts and sometimes fall inside these duct tubes. From there is unfortunately a slippery duct system with smooth metal rings against a plastic duct system.  The longer they are in a vehicle the deeper they may go as every brake action can cause the ring to move further and further out of reach. This is why time is your enemy if you have lost a ring especially in your vehicle! Fortunately we have some pretty creative tools and experience in recovery of rings lost in vehicles. It’s not at all recommended to take your car to a mechanic for a lost ring. We have examples of people having seats pulled from a vehicles, large labor charges and still no rings recovered. Remember a mechanics aren’t focused on lost ring recovery and are typically working as fast as possible to get each job accomplished. An auto mechanic shop is not the best option for a lost item recovery search. Being a mechanic myself and having all the tools to remove seats from vehicles I have found easier and better ways of inspection and item recovery reducing seat removal. 

What the video to see my process in action returning now only a cherished engagement ring but a big smile to Martina’s face. She was very relieved and now ready to visit her family for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Two Lost Diamond Wedding Rings Bainbridge Island WA

SeattleRingHunter Lost Item Recovery Specialist LAND & SCUBA Call ASAP 206-618-8194

Watch the SeattleRingHunter recover two lost wedding rings lost while carving pumpkins.

November 2021 Mikala called me shortly after Halloween asking fro some professional help. She explained to me that her whole family have been on the search for her missing wedding rings and they could not find them. She went into detail telling me that the family and her toddler were up on the second level of their home carving pumpkins. During this activity she had taken off three rings from her hand and placed them on top of her sons highchair tray. Well after the pumpkin carving and clean up she went looking for her rings and they were all missing. They searched the area they had been carving and tore apart the highchair and no rings were to be found.

A bit after the incident her husband happened to eyeball one of the three rings a sterling silver ring laying at the bottom of their balcony steps. This lead them to think that possibly their toddler must have seen the shiny rings on the tray table and somehow got ahold of them. They have big dogs and their son has been known to throw rocks off the balcony for them to chase after. This gave them reason to believe their son may have tossed mommies rings for the dog as well. This lead to more searching high and low outside of the home but the wedding rings never came into focus.

Mikala told me they didn’t have any experience using a metal detector and once she found TheRingFinders online she soon rather just call a professional to come search for her wedding set.  I told her that it sounds like a great challenge and I be honored to drop by and perform a search.

The day of the search was not unlike another winter day in the Pacific North West full of wind and rain. In full rain gear I gathered my tools and was off to another lost wedding ring adventure. 

 

Watch the video to see as we bring back not one but two smiles to Mikala’s face. This search took quite a bit of effort but was worth every bit of it to have recovered her lost wedding set of four years.

September 2021 I received a call from Robert the owner operator of Boat Snake Yacht Maintenance. He explains his line of work is performing yacht maintenance to include every thing from wash downs to full vessel detailing. While he was recently serving one of his clients boats they took a wake surging the vessel and it knocked the gunnel ladder off the boat. Unfortunately it did not land on the marina deck but took a plunge and went straight to the bottom of the lake. He told me he had been searching on line to find an exact replacement but was having no success in finding what he needed. That is when he decided to seek out a diver for hire. He called one of the local marine guys and for what ever reason they provided a referral to call the SeattleRingHunter. 

Having experience in Lake Union I gladly agreed to help Rob. We set time to meet and the mission wast set. The morning of the recovery Rob was able to accommodate his schedule to meet me and show me first hand where the ladder had fallen into the lake. Having a first hand account identifying the drop zone made for a straight forward recovery plan.  After executing the recovery I was happy to hand the gunnel ladder over to him with smiles all around. We were both happy to have retrieved his clients ladder for the best all around solution. I applaud Rob the level of customer service he provided to his cline. It’s nice to see a high level of care offered to those he services. If you are in the need for some yacht maintenance be sure to reach out to Robert for a quick chat and tell him the SeattleRingHunter said to say hi.

Watch the video to see the recovery of a lost gunnel ladder unfold first hand.

How to find a lost ring in the snow in Nashville Tennessee

  • from Nashville (Tennessee, United States)

I received a text from Simone today. She had lost her engagement ring in the snow. We had just gotten several inches of snow in Nashville. I told her I would be there as soon as I could dig my car out of the snow. When I arrived I was met by Simone and her husband. Seems they had bought a metal detector to look for the ring. They were not sure if it was working correctly so they tossed another ring into the snow to see if they could find it. I ask what the engagement ring was made of. Silver I was told. I found the test ring and that seemed to build their confidence that her ring could be found. I searched about 15 more minutes and hit a solid Gold signal. I recovered the 14K gold engagement ring. Everybody was HAPPY!

Lost gold wedding band Oak Meadows Park, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Vancouver Ring Finder Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

It’s Sunday around 11am, I’m making brunch when I received a text message for help. I read the message and it said ”Hi my name is Travis I just lost my ring at Oak Meadows field in Vancouver”. I called immediately, I asked my questions in regards to where Travis thought the ring was lost and quickly ate my brunch and hit the road.

I got to the soccer field minutes before the ultimate Frisbee game was over and met Travis, we talked for a few minutes and another player walked over and introduced himself to me, it was a previous client from maybe four years back who I help find his gold wedding band. He was so kind to make mention of my directory in order for his friend Travis to get a hold of me.

After talking to Travis the search that I thought was not going to take long could  turned out to be a long day due to the fact it could’ve fallen out of his pocket pretty much anywhere. You see Travis took his ring off to keep it safe and put it in his jacket pocket, when he got to the sidelines of the field, from walking from the car he realized his ring was missing and realize there was a ring size hole in his pocket. I walked the walk with Travis he showed me where he came on to the field, where he went across the field, and where on the sideline he went.

Right away I knew this could be a long search close to 100 yards in distance and could be possibly 10 to 20 yards across, I began the process of my grid search and close to an hour into the search on this rainy day people were starting to show up to the field to play ultimate frisbee. Two other teams showed up and I knew my time was limited, I kept grid searching and found the ring an hour into the search. I was so relieved to find his ring because I would’ve stayed for two hours until that game was done in order to start searching again and also it was Travis’s 19th wedding anniversary this Wednesday so you can imagine how badly he wanted to have this ring back.

Gold and Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Surf While Celebrating 20th Weddind Anniversary .. Newport Beach, CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you lost your ring in the sand call  “Stan the Metal Detector Man” available now … Call or Text  .. 949-500-2136

… Dave and his family are from Minnesota visiting his sister Sarah. They were out here celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. Three days before returning home they went to Crystal Cove State Beach, just up the coast from Laguna Beach, CA. There day was up set when Dave got knocked down by a wave, losing his custom made gold and diamond wedding ring that he had worn for 20 years.

I was contacted by a text from Sarah three days later at 6:30pm Sunday evening. We only communicated by text. She told me what had happened. The time that it happened and sent me a couple photos. I know that beach well, so I was confident that I could get to the general area without her driving 35 miles to point out the site.

I checked the tides when the loss occurred and the next best low tide. I would not be able to talk to Dave because he was on an airplane returning home. This was worth a gamble. I set my alarm for 4:30am so I could catch the next low tide. If I didn’t find the ring, I could talk to Dave getting more details from the person who lost the ring.

After about an hour and half, I got a faint signal in black wet sand. I very seldom discriminate while doing a ring search, so I dug the signal. YEP .. there in the pile of sand was a gold ring with diamonds. It had to be Dave’s ring.. 

Later that morning I contacted Sarah with the good new including a photo of the ring.. She was able to pick it up that afternoon. That night I received a FaceTime call from Dave , thanking me for finding his wedding ring of 20 years. We talked for 20 minutes. He told me the story of how he and his wife designed two matching rings for their wedding. I also got a call from his aunt telling me how grateful everyone was that the ring had been recovered.

It was another happy day for all concerned. I know that these rings lost in the surf are not always easy to find. This one may not have been detectable if we waited one more day. Sand moves every tide on these beaches and we have six foot tide changes.

Lost Gold Wedding Ring in the Sand at Bolsa Chica State Beach, CA. .. Found near Firepits

“I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136

*** Justin called asking if I was available to search for his white gold wedding ring at Bolsa Chica State Beach, CA. This state beach is located in Orange County, CA. and is actually in the City of Huntington Beach, CA. 

He and his family spent the afternoon and evening set up at the fire pits. They set up a small tent to get away from the afternoon breeze. Justin put his wedding ring inside a pocket in the tent. After packing up the tent he remembered the ring when packing up the car. 

Returning to the firepit to hand search the sand proved futile. The next morning he called me giving me verbal directions and a photo of the area. Justin was not able to meet me at the location but I felt it would be more important to get to the location as soon as possible. I had enough information to do the search. Timing is the most important factor for a successful search.

I had received the call at 7:30am and had Justin’s ring in the sand scoop before 9:00am. I love being able to leave promptly on these types searches because it’s very important. Justin was surprised when I sent him a photo of his ring so soon after he gave me all the landmarks as where he believe his ring might be. He met me that afternoon after he got off work.  He is a fireman and it was my pleasure to help a guy who job is to help others. A happy camper and very nice guy.

*** A lady named Deepa called me after returning home from a day at a local Orange County California Beach. She had dropped two rings in the sand while at the beach. She was able to find one of the rings but her favorite Tiffany T ring could not be found. After talking to her on the phone, she had given me very good directions as to where the loss occurred. She had been sitting within 30ft. of a lifeguard tower which made it unnecessary for her to drive back to the beach to show me the location.

It was a perfect time to head for the location as people were beginning to leave the beach. Parking was easy compared to earlier in the day. I grabbed my detector, marching  out to the zone. They were a few people that gave me a curious eye. Starting with 30 ft. grid lines I dug a few trash metal objects and ” BOOM ”.. Deepa’s Tiffany Ring showed up after three grid passes. 

I turned off my machine walked to the car to call Deepa. I was home within an hour and a half of her original call for help. Yes! We love the quick recoveries, but it’s the NO FINDS that we don’t post that can kick your butt. Hours of searching for some of the losses that seem to be easy but the ring just won’t show up.. Very hard to tell people that I can’t find the item.. Once in a while we get a text or call from the person saying they found the ring somewhere out of the area they thought it was lost..

Deepa was surprised and excited to get her favorite ring returned the next day when we met in Newport Beach.

Lost Wedding Ring Playing Volleyball at Manhattan Beach, CA. .. Recovered wIth Metal Detector

Metal Detecting Service .. Call Stan the Metal Detector Man ..  949-500-2136

… Chris was playing beach volleyball at Manhatten Beach, CA. when he lost his Tungsten wedding ring. He didn’t feel it come off but he did know it was on before starting the game. Immediately after winning the game and before leaving the area around the volleyball court, he noticed his ring wasn’t on his finger. 

Chris was given my contact information by one of his neighbors. He said he would be able to meet me at the location. When I arrived, I told him this could be an easy recovery because he called me and I was there within a couple hours of the loss.  To most people it seems that this would be a simple search, but I have been surprised by how far a ring lost playing volleyball can end up. I try not to get overconfident that it’s going to be a fast recovery. 

Chris felt that it should be on the north side of the court. That’s where I started my grid search. He stayed with me as I found a few coins and metal trash. After finishing that side of the volleyball net, I could see Chris was beginning to lose hope. For some reason he had felt the ring had to be in that area. I have found rings lost while playing volleyball in the strangest places. Volleyball players are very active and there is major hand motions.

Well, after 30 minutes, I moved to the south side of the net. On the second pass near the net. “Boom”, a strong signal in my headphones which turned out to reveal the wedding ring in my sand scoop. Chris close  enough to me to hear the clanking of the heavy ring in my scoop. He knew we had found his ring. Big smile and a happy man to have his wedding ring back where it belongs.

Lost Diamond Ring Hayward Lake, Mission, BC…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

 

I get a call from a young lady who told me that she had lost her ring at the Hayward lake in Mission, this is about a 2 hour drive from where I live. We discussed the search over the phone and the fact that it was lost where someone else could easily find it with a metal detector I knew I had to get there as soon as possible. We met the next morning and I heard the story of the ring and what it meant to them to get it back. I assess the search area, which I thought was going to be smaller and it turned out to be half of the swimming area. This could easily take a couple hours to grid search, but that’s OK I will do what I have to do to find that smile.

Because this lake/park does not allow Metal Detecting we had to get permission first, the permission was granted and I began my search in the areas they believe the ring could be in, after 20 minutes and no ring I asked a few more questions, one place stood out to me and I started searching that area and found her beautiful custom made diamond ring only minutes later… A total of 30 minutes to find her lost Smile!
