LOST DIAMOND RING FOUND WAIKIKI

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th  and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA  IS ALIVE.

 

Rings lost at Mission Beach Found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Esther called me and asked for help finding her future sister-in-law Gerry’s engagement ring. Reason #2 again! Yup, ring put into beach chair pocket, chair folded up later when they left, and no ring by the time they got to the car. I get the particulars and find out it’s been two days since the loss. That’s an eternity on the blanket line at a popular beach, but, always worth a try. I met Esther at the beach and she directs me to the search area. Since she wasn’t with them when this all happened, I could only get a general idea of where it might be. Esther’s Brother-in-law and future husband of Gerry was on his way to help narrow the search area since he was there at the time of loss. I searched a bit in the mean time, but, only came up with a few coins. That was a good sign however, telling me that it was unlikely anyone else had detected that area lately. The beach groomer hadn’t been through there either, another thing in our favor. Hollis arrived and pointed out the area he believed they had been, and Oh, there were actually 5 rings that were lost! 1 white gold, and 4 silver, so, I’ll be digging just about all signals.

Naturally, there were other people camped right in that spot today! I started searching an open spot next to it while Esther and Hollis went to get permission to hunt under the people’s tent and around their camp. The people were nice enough to allow that, but, no ring came to light. I went back and continued to grid the open area while they tried to figure out where the next likely spot would be. After many passes and getting about 100 feet away from where the rings should be, I was just about to stop and move to search their path back to the car, and the trash cans where they stopped on the way, when I get another good “dime” signal. I scoop and sweep over the hole. Still a signal, so, I dump the sand and take another scoop. Hmmm, two rings in the scoop that look like the silver rings described by Hollis as being the other rings Gerry had lost. I called him over and he confirmed that those were two of them. I swept the hole again, but, nothing. Swept the sand I dumped out on my first scoop, and I get another signal. Yup silver ring number 3. Another sweep and silver #4. To heck with silver! Where’s the gold! Next scoop is where! A beautiful engagement ring comes to light. My first 5 ring recovery! Hollis and Esther are amazed and very happy to see those rings again, and Gerry was too when she was contacted with the good news. A pleasure to meet you, good luck on your future marriage Hollis and Gerry, and thank you for the reward.

Lost White Gold/Diamond Ring On Rehoboth Beach Found

from Lewes (Delaware, United States)
Contact: 1-302-245-8795

On 07/16/18, I received a phone call as well as a email from Donna regarding the loss of her white gold wedding ring with diamonds that had been lost on Rehoboth Beach. Donna said that she and her husband had been sitting on the beach from 2:00 pm until about 5:15 pm and that when they got up to leave she noticed that her wedding ring was not on her finger. Donna said that her husband could show me the area of the beach where they had been sitting. I then contacted Donnas husband by his cell phone and he agreed to meet me at the beach to show me the area where he and his wife believed that the ring had been lost. Donnas husband told me that he had raked the sand in the area where they felt that the ring had been lost and that he was unable to locate the ring. Upon arriving at Rehoboth Beach, I began a search of the raked area for the lost ring and as I got to the end of the search area I was able to locate and recover Donnas lost ring.

Lost Wedding Ring in Point Pleasant NJ Found by Matt St Germain / Jersey Shore Lost Ring Finder

from Seaside Heights (New Jersey, United States)
Contact: 1-732-581-0285

July 31st i got a message from my friend and Fellow Ring Finder Dennis Burligame about a lost ring he attempted to recover but was not able to. He asked me if i would give it a try also knowing i was going to head out that night. Of course i will i told him. He sent me a photo of the area the owner (Nick) had sent to him showing where he was when it was lost. Going by that photo and the time of day it was lost (High tide) I waited until the early Am low tide so i could cover a broader area.Using my minelab Equinox 800 I started my grid up high where it was lost and slowly worked my way down the wet sand slope as close to the water as possible. In a little over and hour i found it close to the water’s edge about 10-12″ deep! The surf had dragged it down the beach and buried it good. Needless to say Nick was very happy when he received a picture of his ring via text and was very thankful to get it back. Another great ending!

 

Lost Tantalum Ring found on Volleyball court at Chicago Beach

from Chicago (Illinois, United States)
Contact: 1-773-774-5445

Received a call regarding a lost ring on a volleyball court.

Told me he lost it on Friday and contacted me on Tuesday, our courts are hit hard over the weekend so I really did not have high hopes of finding it but told him will give it my best shot.

This the first time I have been asked to find a Tantalum ring, honestly never even heard of it before this.

The old adage applies, they are never found where you think they should be, after about an hour of searching with no luck, I broadened my search area and hit it about 50 feet where he thought it would be, any way no matter happy ending..

Lost wedding ring North Shore FOUND!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

It was Sunday morning around 5 AM and I take a look at my missed calls while checking emails. That’s when I noticed there was a voicemail of a lost wedding ring at Sunset beach on the North Shore. I responded to the voicemail via text. The couple, Sean and Megan now were on vacation from Utah. We agreed to meet up so my family and I headed down to Sunset Beach.

When we arrived at their address Sean took us to the back of their beautiful vacation rental which is steps away to the beach. Meeting the family and getting the story on how Megan unfortunately lost her ring was heart wrenching. She was playing in the sun and enjoying the water with the kids and after sometime in the water she looked at her hand and noticed that her ring of 19 years fell off her finger and she didn’t know where! In desperation The family tried snorkeling but didn’t find it.

I gathered all the information I needed and headed down the beach. I asked Sean if he can grab a bunch of the white rocks in the sand to help line the bottom of the ocean floor as markers while I search and grid out the area. I decided to start from the deepest part and work my way to the shallows as the tide was on the rise! I did one pass around chest deep to over head and nothing. But, as I started to make my next line I got a loud “platinum” sound in the deeper part of the sandbar. I started to dig and fan all along looking and praying this is the lost ring. I then notice a ring, approximately 6” buried in the sand with the markings described of Megan’s ring, a big and thick Platnuim band with yellow gold that surrounding a diamond. I was sooooo excited to find it! As I grabbed it and looked up towards the beach where the entire family stood looking at myself and Sean, I held up her RING and Megan’s sister shouted… “I think he found it!” And the whole family was moved with emotions and tears as i can hear them excited and in awe. So, I handed Sean his wife’s lost but FOUND wedding ring. As Sean headed up the beach he met his wife in the yard and got on one knee to put back on her finger. The precious ring symbolized  his love for her.

To the Stolhs … THIS FIND WAS ANSWERED PRAYERS! Another vacation saved and another happy ending!  Glad to help and have a blessed time on the North Shore!

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Lost Gold Wedding Band @ William D Cuts School, Larose Drive, St. Albert. Alberta (Found)

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

 

Neil requested my services this afternoon in finding his lost wedding band which he had lost on Sunday. He had taken his ring off and placed it in the side pocket of his soccer bag with his keys and when the game was over he took his keys out and walked back to his car.   When he arrived home the ring was not in his bag and he figured that the ring would have fallen out when he took his keys out.

Neil and his wife spent a couple of hours yesterday searching for the ring with no luck.  He then went on Facebook looking to rent a metal detector and a reporter  from the local newspaper saw it.   This reporter had done a story about me a couple of years ago, contacted him and recommend him to get in touch with me.

I called Neil and met  him at the school half an hour later. He showed me the area and the direction he walk from the field. Five minutes later  I had his ring back on his finger.

Another happy client!

Thank you Neil

 

 

Found Lost wedding ring Waikiki

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-699-0521

I knew it wasn’t good when I got a call at 7:30am from Margaret and she was letting me know that the evening prior Matt went to take a swim in the beautiful pacific ocean and lost his wedding band! I was working and could’t get out there until 12:30pm. After talking to Margaret we agreeed to meet up after work! After work I headed out to the beach and met up with the couple. I felt confident that we would find the ring and asked the couple for more specifics concerning the time it was dropped, tide, and how far out! This search started around 1:00pm with high hopes and after I searched for awhile I asked Matt to come out and place himself in position as to where he believed the ring dropped. Well needless to say Margaret was on the beach signaling to us if we were in or out of position.  After an hour I look on the beach and see Margaret just frustrated when th her hands on her hips and I asked Matt to go back in and comfort his wife. Knowing very well that we are all on edge and would love nothing other than to get this lost ring found!  Knowing the importance of this ring I continued to grid. Well, when I started to feel like I need to let them know that let’s call it a day and I’ll come back on a low tide I hear a GREAT TONE! But it’s way away from the mark… like pushed almost to the very shore… so I dig it and there in the bottom of the xtreme scoop is Matt’s Gold wedding band! I’m so excited at this moment… I put the ring in my hand and head back to the couple as they are standing on the beach. I ask them if they have a picture of the ring and sure enough Margaret pulls out her phone and shows me the ring. They not knowing I found it I ask Margaret “would you like to replace your husbands wedding ring back on his finger?” They both looked surprised and yet have a bright smile on their faces. But said “ NO WAY!” And  They both stood there amazed and we all shed a few tears knowing that the ring is Found! Not to mention the beach was filled with tourist and local which all shared the JOY in Another happy couple and saved vacation / Anniversary!

Always Great to never give up hope… LIVE ALOHA 🤙🏽

Lost Wedding Ring Victoria B.C. Recovered and Returned

from Victoria (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-361-8666

Monday June 18th  Jon and Cheryl were at Langford Lake boat ramp teaching their dog to swim. Jon told me, I do remember feeling it slip off when the dog I was holding started to swim towards shore. I remember my feet in the muck but I was facing the shore. I tried diving down when it happened and maybe I buried it with all the commotion. It’s platinum – not sure if that makes it harder to detect or not.
Cheryl contacted me June 26th, “Don can you help, My husband of just 9 months lost his wedding ring.”
I started searching that afternoon, After three failed attempts to recover this heirloom platinum wedding ring I returned one more time, it was bugging me that I was not able to recover and return this ring.
Well persistence paid off, found it and returned to a very happy couple.

I love my job.
