Erin and Dan moved to Denver from the Miami area soon after getting married. They moved into a VRBO to get by for a few weeks. We received a nice spring snow storm and Erin headed out to back door of their place to let the dog out and do something she couldn’t do in Miami, through a snowball. After tossing the snowball she shook her hands off and that is when both her wedding band and engagement ring slipped off her finger. Erin and Dan spent the next hour of so heating water and trying to melt the snow off the back porch since Erin was beside the porch when her rings slipped off. After several pots of water they gave up and decided to try to find another route to recover her rings. With that being said Erin searched the web and my name came up in the Ring Finders.
Erin called me just as I was getting dinner ready to put into the oven. During that phone conversation she explained her situation and I told he that I would be able to perform the search after I had dinner going. Soon after the phone call ended I had the food in the oven and I loaded up the car with a few detectors and headed out for the search. Upon arrival Erin lead me to the back yard and explained what she did and where she was standing. I put together my XP Deus and made a couple of swings over the yard when heard a promising signal. I kicked back 3-4 inches of snow and there was a gold band laying there. I signaled to Erin to come over, she looked at the exposed area and pulled the wedding band from the ground. She moved a bit more snow and her engagement ring appeared. She couldn’t believe that I had found her ring so fast.
Claudia Couldn’t Be Happier to Wear the Old Gold Ring Again!
I received a phone call coming from a woman named Claudia who found my contact information online by clicking on The Ring Finders link somewhere at the bottom of a web page. Like me, she grew up in Bethesda, Maryland area and she went to the same high school that I went to but just a different time period.
It turned out that Claudia’s childhood Bethesda house would be put up for sale soon because her mother (who still lived in the Bethesda home) would be moving into a retirement community nearby. So, it was Claudia that had to tie together all of the loose ends and make sure that everything was taken care of inside and outside of the house before the house sale would be soon finalized.
One of the To-Do’s on her checklist was to search and dig up her ex-husband’s wedding band that was buried somewhere in the front lawn of the house! Yes, you read it correctly! Her former husband’s wedding band! Initially I was taken back by that, but it wasn’t as strange as it seemed. According to Claudia’s account, even though she had been divorced from the man for over twenty plus years, (and by the way, she was the one that ended the marriage), Claudia liked wearing her ex’s big-old-hunk-of-gold wedding band! She kept wearing it and it just became a part of her hand over time.
Claudia described to me on the phone what happened to the ring a year earlier. She shared that she was parked along side the front of her mother’s house, on the street, and she opened up her minivan to bring out some groceries. At some point she saw the ring fly off her finger and onto the lawn near the street.
She wasted no time in searching for the ring. However, what she thought would be so simple in finding the ring ended up being an unsuccessful recovery. Time marched on and Claudia had always meant to go look for the ring again but other priorities came in the way of this from happening and so it wasn’t until her mother had to move from Claudia’s childhood house that she needed to make the ring reappear from the lawn.
I was so happy to help Claudia when she called me to ask if I could come out sooner than later to help recover her ex-husband’s yellow gold wedding ring from the earth. We set up the appointment for the following day and that’s where the fun began!
When I met up with Claudia and her brother who happened to be at the house at the same time, she took me to the spot that she believed was the general area where the ring went flying to the ground. I got my gear out and began the search. I was looking for a pretty hot signal because the ring was said to be a real “chunker”! In no time, I got a couple of signals that matched up with what I wanted to see on my detector! One of them ended up being a penny. I was almost certain that the next target was worth digging up, and I proceeded to do so. About 4 inches down, after clearing a good amount of dirt with my trowel, it was then that I caught a glimpse of some yellow gold peeping through the earth! I hit gold! I was delighted that nobody had picked up the ring when it was on the surface over a year ago! The grass must have effectively camouflaged the treasure piece and I was delighted to conclude that now that the ring had been exposed for the first time in a year!
I called Claudia over to where I had been working and eventually her brother joined us as well. I got to share the exciting news of my find! Claudia was thrilled to say the least! I went ahead and carefully removed the gold ring from the rest of the surrounding dirt and proudly handed it to its owner. Moments later, the ring was back on the finger of the woman who had accidentally dropped it just over a year earlier!
It was such a satisfying feeling to be able to get this keepsake back to Claudia before the land would become someone else’s property. Both Claudia and her brother were quite pleased by the whole experience and the return of the ring truly made their day and mine completely thrilling!

Ann’s 14 Karat White Gold, 2 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring
Ann’s 14 Karat White Gold Wedding Band
It was Memorial Weekend 2019 in Ocean City, Maryland! People are finally bringing their fun back to the beach! Summer is kicking off with great weather and family celebrations! But with all the good times, there are the occasional trials that come our way! One such adversity happened for Ann and Bill of Baltimore, Maryland.
Ann was hanging out with her lovely family on the beach in Ocean City, enjoying her little daughter Stella playing in the dry sand and adults talking with friends. Bill was settled in his sun chair and quite content with his Bud Lite. Ann reached for her beach cover up and as soon as she finished placing it on, she realized that she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring and wedding band! Apparently, Ann had wrapped the priceless keepsakes in the cover up and forgot to remove them and slip them back on her fingers. The rings ended up in the dry sand somewhere in the midst of where everyone had been hanging out.
Ann began to panic. These rings meant everything to her. The family, including young Stella, along with friends and nearby beach acquaintances, searched relentlessly to find the rings. Unfortunately, between the stubbornness of the sand and those beautiful bands, none of the beach goers could find even one of them.
This is where Julian comes in. He was really the hero of the day! This young man is a friend of the family. He too searched long and hard. Finally, he decided to look online to see if there was any kind of service that could help people like Ann and Bill. He found THE RING FINDERS! He called me up, explained what happened, and within 10 minutes I was on my way to help! You have to keep in mind that Ocean City, Maryland covers over 150 streets of beach. So, I could have been anywhere at the time of the call, but it just so happened that I was only 20 blocks from where the rings went missing! Perfect timing!
I met up with Julian on the beach, who then guided me to the area where Ann accidentally dropped her beloved bands. The family was so sweet. Stella was precious! She was so eager to help recover the rings. I talked with Ann and she literally fell apart emotionally. She felt so bad for what happened and she couldn’t find any hope within her that the keepsakes would be raised from beneath. So, I loaded her up with comfort, letting her know that everything would be just fine. Ann explained that her engagement ring was a family heirloom passed down the family from her beloved grandmother. She was upset about losing it and her wedding band, as well. When everyone’s attempts had failed to find her rings, she feared that the tide would come up the sand and carry her rings out to sea. The thought of her rings never to return to her was quite devastating to think about.
I got right to work. Everyone on the beach who had been settled near this family all took notice of what was going on and they watched as I started to search for the rings. Ann and Bill gave the approximate area and I handled the rest. Little Stella was my side partner on hand.
It took no more than a minute or maybe less before I got the first signal that I was looking for! Ring Number 1 which was Ann’s wedding band came out of the depths of the sand! The beach goers all let out a resounding applause! It really was a lot of fun how everyone took part in the celebration of seeing the ring return to Ann’s finger! I gave the ring to Stella to then hand it to her mother. Ann started shedding more tears, but this time they were fresh tears of relief and happiness! Yet, she was still not content! Her priceless engagement ring was still buried somewhere and she continued to cry in desperation. The suspense was not over for her just quite yet.
Another minute or two passed after continuing my search and then the next target signal hit my detector screen and sounded off loudly in my headphones! I knew it was the other target that I had been searching for! I gave Stella my pinpointer device to help find the missing ring even faster after the detector gave me the number I was looking for. She helped me bring her mother’s ring to the surface as she used the hand device to find the ring in the sand. She then located the precious metal object and there it was! Ring Number 2 was now revealed! The packed crowd on the beach cheered once again! Everyone was so happy for the family! I let Stella do the honors once more and carry the engagement ring over to her mother. Ann just sobbed tears of happiness to now be reunited with her engagement ring! One of the ladies sunbathing near Ann’s beach chair, wrapped her arms around her and helped Ann to calm down.
I was so happy for the family! Bill hugged me and offered me some beer to take back to the car! Julian also gave me a hug and thanked me. I commended him for helping the family find THE RING FINDERS service! Stella was beaming sunshine smiles and all of the beach neighbors gathered around to check out the rings that were successfully recovered! A priceless moment that I will never forget!
All the best to Ann, Bill, Stella and Julian! Thank you so very much for letting me be a part of the happiness and celebration of seeing the two precious rings return to the finger that missed them so very much!

After discovering the Ring Finder website, Gerard and his wife Kim contacted me about looking for his wedding ring that slipped off his finger into the Gulf waters off Sanibel Island near the lighthouse. Gerard explained that the ring was very important and sentimental to him and his family. So after some phone conversations and text messages were exchanged, my wife and I came up with a plan to search for his ring.
Since neither Gerard or Kim would be at the location the day we looked for it, I asked Gerard to provide a map/diagram of the area he thought he lost it. Equipped with the map and our Minelab Excalibur metal detectors and scoops, we began our search.
The two of us searched for over over 2 1/2 hours before I finally saw Gerard’s ring in my scoop. As soon as we returned to the vehicle, we texted a picture of the found ring for Gerard and his family to see.
Arrangements were then made to meet an ecstatic Gerard and his daughter the next evening and return the ring.
Thank you for contacting us through The Ring Finder metal detecting service website–brings us great joy to reunite people with their lost items. Thank you for the generous reward as well.
