Wedding Band Lost 16 Years Ago Found and Returned. Chatham, MA

from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)
Contact: 1-860-309-3307

16 years ago a young sea-goer’s wedding band was pulled off his finger while trying to secure a friend’s boat to a buoy. Searching the surrounding seaweed covered area was unsuccessful in locating the ring. It was to remain hidden for the next 16 years.

While detecting, enjoying my hobby, and avoiding the Corvid-19 virus I found a wedding band with the initials of T.L.F. and a date of 1989 inscribed on the inside of the band. As usual, as I have never been able to find the owner of a wedding band with that information, I was about to put the ring into my pouch for safe keeping when I noticed a name on a large mooring buoy about four feet from me. The name began with an “F”. Could there be a connection between the “F” in the ring and the “F” on the buoy? I had to do some web searching when I got home.

I searched Zillow for street names in the area, the town assessor’s online data base, and other personal information locators for a family name beginning with an “F” and contact information. The search first lead me to a disconnected phone number, several distant possibilities, and a Trust Fund name and finally to a Financial Group, its name was Odyssey. The name was exciting enough, I had to contact them. Of course the financial specialist, Kim, could not give me any information, other than she knew the family. Do to the privacy laws Kim could only promise me she would inquire of someone in the family that may be able to help and have them contact me. A call came back from Kim with bad news…no one with the initials of T.L.F. was know to the contacted family members. Well I tried. But…wait…

About an hour later I received another call, this time it was from Trish. Yes…Trish had some information, but the owner’s initials were not T.L.F. as they were not the owner’s initials, they were an abbreviation for True Love Forever. The owner, Brian, was and still is a close friend of Trish. An arrangement was made for the return of a long missing wedding band. The return sequence of leading to a wedding band’s return was a first for me, all thanks to a coincidence, hunch and the internet.

LOST WEDDING RING WAIKIKI FOUND

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

This recovery started when i  got the text from Melissa about her lost diamond wedding rings in Ala Moana Waikiki area. She lost them the daybefore and so i gathered my gear and  I was able to head out and look the very next morning on a very well known and hunted beach. I had my fair share of concerns but needed to give a thorough search regardless. As i was searching the area in which Melissa gave I started to take notice that i looked in the area and nothing but loose change and bottle caps. So i decided to open up the search area because I’ve been looking for 2 hours and no rings. About a half hour in the search i get a great tone and there in the xtreme scoop is 1 of the 2 missing rings. I then start a circle grid which i started to overlap my previous grid and i get another good tone but very faint. i dug a good 5-6 inches before lo and behold there in the bottom of my scoop is Melissas 2nd ring. I was so happy i ran to my belongings on the beach and noticed that my phone had no battery life. As i’m standing there happy I could hear a voice that said ” Did you find it”? It was the life guard who i talked to earlier about these lost now found rings. His reaction was priceless… NO WAY! With a loud voice. We talked for a little while and then I left the beach with a grateful heart because I know I’ll get to return these beauties. What was thought to be a Gone forever changed! I charged my phone and later that evening my family met up with Melissa and we returned the wedding rings. Happy to help and return these beauties! Another successful recovery.

Biggest thing is to contact me as soon as possible because it increases the chances of me finding and returning your lost rings.
mahalo…

Precious Ring Lost In The Ocean, Hammersley Pool, Perth, Western Australia.

from Perth (Australia)
Contact: 0469880955.

Milena called about midday to ask if I could find her diamond and ruby, gold ring which she had lost whilst swimming in Hammersley Pool two day’s prior. I said “sure can” and “there’s no time like now” and soon set about throwing my gear in the ute and headed straight to Hammersley Pool about an hours drive away. Normally I would have taken only one detector and off loaded my dive gear before leaving.. what a shame I didn’t but the reason for this comment will become clear a little later in the story..

Four or five people had been searching for Milena’s precious ring the day before in snorkling gear but alas it had not been found.

What a beauty Milena!

Milena had a pretty good idea where it had come off so I handed her my video camera as I felt confident it would soon capture me finding her ring. I waded into the water and began detecting across the pool to the reef at the back of the pool. About three meters from the reef I heard the first signal to come from my whites surfmaster underwater metal detector so far and the signal smacked of being a gold ring.

I had my back to Milena as I pushed my scoop into the sand under where the signal had come from and shook the scoop as I raised it to the surface. I was pretty certain this was her ring and if whatever it was, was in the first scoop it had not been very deep and that meant it had not been there for long and was therefore even more likely to be Milenas ring. Just before the scoop appeared above the water I felt a solid object hit the bottom of the scoop, this turned into a rattle, a distinctly gold sounding rattle. Tentatively I looked in and low and behold Milenas gorgeous ruby and diamond ring lay in the bottom.

I took a moment to think, then abruptly turned around, lifted my detector in the air with one hand and Milenas ring in the other and yelled “Yeaahh, I’ve found it Milena!”

Me, Milena, her ring and her son, daughter and three grandchildren all enjoying the moment..

I was so excited I literally paddled, ran and jumped my way back toward the beach and we reckon I managed to put her ring back in her hand in about two minutes flat!

Wedding band lost in volleyball sand court

from Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)
Contact: 98811429

Almost in the end of winter here in Rio de Janeiro, I received a call from Leo. He had lost his wedding band playing volleyball on a sand court.

When I got there I was met by him and his adorable wife who were really upset about the loss.

He told me he was pretty sure he had lost it on the side of the court we were standing. Actually he could swear he had seen it  flying from his finger. I spent about an hour searching that side of it and found from rusted nails to a small religious silver medal, but no ring.

Going to the other side of it, swinging my coil randomly to start, within minutes I had his wedding band inside my scoop. The couple  was more than happy to have it back. Afterwards the told me they really did not believe it could ever be found.

Another happy ending for a happy couple.

Lost earring in Kearney Mesa found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Naomi was at a local park and lost a family heirloom earring. There were a couple of areas where she had been, including where she was playing with some dogs on the ground. On arrival, we met and she explained the situation and showed me the two areas, both of which are on a baseball field. Unfortunately, there was some guys playing ball on the field, so, one of the areas over by the left field foul line was busy. The other area was deep in right field and not too close to where they were playing, so, that’s where I started. Naomi had the mate to the lost earring, so, I was able to use it to give me a sound and I.D. number to go by. Wow, that little thing didn’t give much of a signal, in fact, in a couple of modes, it didn’t register at all! The best signal I could get was in the Gold prospecting mode, where I got a fairly solid 1 on my machine. I started swinging over the grass and found there were so many signals that I had to eliminate all the other numbers except 1 and 2 or I would be there for days! I made a couple of quick passes where she thought she had walked hoping to get a quick recovery. No dice, so, out came the cones and I started to do a complete grid while she walked over to see how long they would be in the other area. As it turned out, they were just about done, but, that was unnecessary. I decided to complete my grid and on the second pass, the weak little sound on my Equinox that I was hoping for, alerted me to the earring sitting there in plain sight. In a flash, Grandma’s earring was back on Naomi’s ear where it belongs. A pleasure to met you Naomi, and thank you for the reward.

Lost Wedding Ring… Found Cedar Rapids, Iowa

from Iowa City (Iowa, United States)
Contact: 1-319-430-3606

I received an email from Lynnetia about her husband Aarons lost wedding ring. He had been trimming a tree in their front yard about two weeks ago and realized his ring was missing.

They then purchased a cheaper metal detector and found some things but not his ring. They then found me on the ringfinder site. I went to look for it yesterday and was happy to find it right by the tree.

They were overjoyed that it was found. It was a pleasure to help this nice young couple.

Ring lost at Mission Bay found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Michael was out on the beach at Mission Bay in front of his apartment when, while waving to someone, his loose fitting wedding ring flew off into the sand. A search by sifting through the sand proved fruitless, so, an online search was in order where he found The Ring Finders website. When I turned on my phone in the morning, I noticed the text and contacted Michael. We made plans for a 10am meet and search. After arriving, meeting Michael and his lovely wife, we went to the site while talking and getting the ring loss story on the way. The search area was fairly large, but, not ridiculous. All dry sand and maybe 30 X 100 feet or so. I started at one end and after 3-4 passes, several coins, and a dog tag later, his gold wedding band came to light. All smiles on the happy couple now and thank you for the reward.
