Him and his family  was enjoying the day at the beach swimming he headed to the truck and was wiping the sand off his legs when his ring slipped off his hand. They spent the next couple hours searching for the Lost Ring. They head back to camper and was searching for a Metal Detector to Rent in Outlook, when they found my Name on the  internet. He called and we made plans to meet at the parking at 10AM the next day.

Old Silver Beach, Falmouth, Massachusetts Diamond Wedding Band Lost, Found and Returned

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

Arriving at the resort earlier than check in time Sylvia and her party went to the sandy beach to wait for their room to be readied. The sun was warm and breeze delightful. A bit of sun tan lotion was in order. As with most beautiful rings with mounted stones one would take the ring off so to keep the cream from lodging itself under the stones. The the ring should be put back on. OOPS here is were Sylvia stood up before putting the ring back on. That was all it took for the ring to disappear into the fluffy sand.

No matter how hard the ring was looked for it had not been found. An attentive lifeguard stepped in to help save the ring by giving Sylvia information about TheRingFinders. A quick call to me and I was on my way. Parking and meeting up with Sylvia took a couple of phone calls before we met up. We were then on the way to the soft sandy area.

I began the search finding several Nip bottle caps, who said no alcohol on the beach? A couple of beer bottle caps and the growing crowd were beginning to wonder if I would ever find the ring. It all happened very fast as it took only about 5 minutes to capture the elusive wedding band in my scoop.
I walked over to Sylvia so she could take her ring from my scoop. This was my third successful wedding band return in one day.

How cheerful the crowd turned. Congratulations were offered and a jeweler chimed in with some useful information on sizing a ring and a reason not to have “bumps” put inside the ring. In one word: Comfort.

Dennis, Massachusetts Chapin Beach Platinum Ring Lost, Found and Returned

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

Talk about coincidence:

Leighton and myself had been successful in an early morning ring return, some leisurely detecting, a cup of coffee and departed each other’s company for the day. OOPS Leighton left his wallet in my car. I called and he did a U-turn and returned to retrieve the wallet. While I was waiting a call came in for help in finding a lost wedding band. Yes, Leighton would join in on the search immediately.

Jack lost his platinum wedding band when he did a back flop into the thigh deep water too cool off. He did succeed in the cooling off and also offed his ring as well. This was happening at the same time that Tim took his wedding band off to apply sunscreen lotion not but a few hundred yards down the beach. All the searching that was done did not located the ring.

That evening Jill, Jack’s wife was talking to Nicole, Tim’s wife. They were astound that their husband both had a Platinum wedding band, each of which were lost within minutes, within yards of each other and each would be found and returned by the same person.

Is it not strange how incidents just seem to harmonize and bring people together and make a sad situation into one to celebrate. After Smiles, Hugs, and many Thanks, Leighton and I were on our way home. Total time was less than an hour to the conclusion of this happily ending adventure.

Mayflower Beach Cape Cod, Massachusetts platinum wedding band lost, found and returned

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

Nicole’s call to her father was returned with a link to After a short conversation with Tim I was on my way to the bay side of Cape Cod. At the end of the road I tried to call Tim but due to No Cell Phone Service I could not contact him. He was somewhere out on the beach among the 100s of beach goers. One such beach goers was kind enough to let me use her phone to call Tim. When she heard me asking about the ring she was ready to tell me the story. It seams the loss was well known by many of the beach goers.

Tim showed up and off we went eager to start searching for his ring. After about 20 feet of searching to my surprise there were no signals. Oh, my mistake, I had left my detector set to a very specific setting to find a hearing aid. A quick change of a program setting and I was searching again. Quarter, soda bottle cap, 2 beer bottle caps and then the platinum wedding band was in my scoop. I left the ring in the scoop for Tim to remove and place on his finger. I wish I had my camera handy to catch the kiss between Tim and Nicole. As I didn’t and that they would not repeat it for a camera I will just have to settle on attached photos for the Book of Smiles.

In the short talk we had after finding the ring it was revealed that the ring went missing after re-applying sunscreen and not removing the ring from the beach chair’s pocket before moving the chair to a different location. The second bit of information was that Tim had proposed to Nicole on the same beach. Only fitting the wedding band was found and returned with enormous gratitude and smiles.

Ring lost at Fiesta Island found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Richard spent the day fishing on Fiesta Island. While cleaning some of the fish he had caught, he shook his hands to get some of the fish scales off, and his wedding ring went flying into the dry sand. He spent 3 days searching through the sand in that area, even buying a detector and trying his luck, but, he couldn’t find it. His online search brought him to TRF and my contact info. I met Richard at the site in the late afternoon where he showed me where he was setup the day of the loss. I’ve searched many areas of Fiesta Island before, and could understand why he had trouble trying to find his ring without any real experience using a detector. This area is tough even for seasoned pros. People have been burning wooded pallets and other scrap lumber on this Island for decades. Aluminum cans were thrown into the campfires and pull tabs litter the landscape. Anywhere you take a scoop of sand will result in 4-5 metal objects, so, it’s a real challenge to find just one signal in all that mess. It wasn’t a particularly big search area, but, it was slow going. 1 1/2 hours later, I had run 3 different grid lines over the entire search area, my trash pouch was almost full, and still no ring. I attacked ground zero at still a different angle and got another mixed signal on my Equinox…..the kind I’d been digging for the last hour and a half. After filtering out the sand, and pulling out 3 nails and 2 other pieces of melted aluminum, I finally see a ring in the scoop with the shells and rocks. Sure enough, it was Richard’s ring. Richard was overjoyed and was able to head home and give his wife the good news. A pleasure to meet you Richard, and thank you for the reward. 

Ring lost at Ocean Beach found

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Lorena was visiting town and enjoying Ocean Beach with some friends and placed her ring in the cup holder of her chair. Time to leave, the chair got folded up, and the ring ended up in the dry sand. A common way rings get lost. Searching was fruitless and Lorena had to go back home up north. She contacted me to ask for my help in finding it. She had planned on returning the next morning to show me the search area, but, having already been a full day on the loose, I had her give me directions as to where she was when the ring fell into the sand. She did better than that. She had some photos that were taken while she was there in that location. Knowing that beach well, I could find that spot fairly easily. Finding the ring might be another thing! I waited until the sun went down so I could actually find a parking spot on a Saturday night. Not easy, but, I lucked into one. The beach was still mobbed with party goers. I made a beeline west toward the water and straight through the middle of search area. Before I got there, I see another guy detecting right through where I planned to search. He didn’t stop for any targets, so, i began my grid. Off to the right was a large group still camped on the beach, so, I started on the left. Made a dozen passes or so without so much as a pull tab. Not a good sign. Somebody (maybe the guy who I first saw) had already scoured the area? At that point, the crowd on the right was picking up and leaving. Great, I can now search the other side before I try to track down the other detectorist to see if he may have found the ring. Still not much in the way of targets until I made 5-6 passes and got a solid 6 on my Equinox. That’s usually a foil drink seal, but, I scooped it anyway as small gold can read in that range. Sure enough, a drink seal. Drat! Moved another 2 feet and got another solid 6 reading. Another juice seal I bet, was what I was thinking, but, after scooping it up, I discovered her ring! As I surveyed the spot I found it, I realized that the other detectorist had missed it by no more than a couple of feet! I texted Lorena that she would have to come back down to San Diego after all, but, instead of having to show me where the search area would be, she could pick up her ring. A pleasure to meet you and Pierre, and thank you for the reward.

Engagement Ring Lost On Kure Beach, NC Found With Metal Detector

from Morehead City (North Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-614-354-6704

Bailey was spending a fun evening on Kure Beach with her family.  Bailey is also planning a September wedding.  She was asked to perform a cartwheel in the sand.  Before the attempt, she gave her engagement ring to her younger sister for safe keeping.   During the excitement and festivities, the ring slipped off of little sister’s hand into the sand.  Both sisters were very upset.  The following morning I get a call from Bailey’s father.  He explained what had happened and plans were made to meet just afternoon.   When I pulled the first target, a red can top, Dad yelled that I had found it!  I think that helped ease the stress levels.  Unfortunately, my 2nd target a silver can top gave Bailey false hopes it was her ring.   The 3rd target was the one we all had hope to recover!   The excitement & tears made the 2 hour drive to their location all worth while!

Palladium Ring Lost Covell’s Beach, Craigville, Massachusetts: Found & Returned

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

Beyond belief is my take on this return, but you will have to decide for yourself.

I was called by Alec in hope that I could find his ring. I was on my way out to find a diamond engagement ring and did not take the usual information that I should have from Alex. That being said I was on my way to search for both rings. After successfully finding the ring first in fresh water I was on my way to the sound side of the Cape. I could not talk my way past the gate guard so I saw two women talking in front of two empty parking spaces in a private residential area. I asked if I could park in their area. After telling them about they agreed and saved me the $25 parking fee.

I searched for about an hour and half before finding a wedding band. I did not pay much attention to the ring, put it into my pocket and started to leave the beach. An the way out I chatted with a lifeguard and told her I had found the ring I was looking for. She then told me that there was a silver ring in the lifeguard house. We chatted with the gate guard and two other lifeguards. The gate guard said he would let me in without charge the next time I needed a parking space.

Believe it or not I left the ring on the wall were we all were talking, At the car I realized what I had done, ran back to meet one of the lifeguards coming toward me with the ring. Back again at the car and I was on my way home. At a stop light I re-read the little information I had from Alec. It was then I realized I had found a ring that was not Alec’s. Alec’s ring is Palladium, not Gold. Dang, the ring is the lifeguard shack must be Alec’s. But the lifeguard had mentioned Len as the person they had tried to call.

It turned out Len is Alec’s uncle and it was he that left contact information with the lifeguards two days after the ring had been lost. I went back to the beach the next day, confirmed via a picture and e-mails that the Palladium was indeed Alec’s. They gave me the ring and I will give it to Alec’s father on Saturday when he returns to the Cape for the week. The ring will be carried back to Alec when his brother returns home on Sunday. I will then be sent a big, wonderful smile in picture form as the ring goes back on Alec’s finger. All this just one month before Alec’s 5th anniversary.


Washburn Island, Massachusetts: Lost Ring Found and Returned

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

A long time favorite beach of Katie and Chris, Washburn Island is only accessible by boat as there are no bridges. I had often thought about tripping to the island myself but never made solid plans.

I had been contacted via J&E Enterprises, my detector dealer, about a lost ring on the Island. Sure I would go. After Katie contacted me about her husband’s lost ring and told me pertinent information such as area and time of loss, item material etc. we made plans to make a recovery trip on Sunday. All was fine until King Neptune sent in high waves along with Mother Natures high winds which shut down the marina. No boat could leave the docks on Sunday. Next plan was for a Friday trip with low tide and predicted weather being much more favorable.

Friday came and so did moderate seas with 2-3 foot waves., it was a go. Chris the owner of the lost ring, knew where we were going. Twice I heard him say NO, the next inlet, around the NEXT curve. Well he would be proven correct, He beached the boat and told me the ring was lost within 15 feet of the boat, as he remembered it should be in the water, not on the sandy beach.

I drew marker lines in the sand made two passes and on the third I heard the beautiful tone of gold. One shallow scoop and shake or two and I walked to Chris and let him remove his ring from the scoop. He did so in total disbelief. Then without much ta-do, he was off running down the beach to where Katie had walked with their dog Mauricio. It was a wonderful sight, the reason I enjoy my hobby, the love of people and the happiness I can bring them after a traumatic happening such as a lost wedding band..

By the way, it was Mauricio who had just been lifted into the boat before Chris’s ring slipped off his finger. My thanks must go out to him for this wonderful experience.


Lost ring found in Falmouth Heights, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

To find a lost ring; find a Ring Finder at: Cape Cod, MA

That is all it took for Lindsay to reunite her husband and his ring that had fallen off in Nantucket Sound while swimming at Falmouth Heights Beach. It was just a short mini vacation to the Cape for a few good meals and a few hours on the beach away from the daily pressures of the Covid19 epidemic.

They were having a great time until the day before returning home. That’s when Mike’s ring slipped off his finger into the water. They thought of buying a replacement. After weighing all options it was decided to first give a Ring Finder a chance to locating the ring. Nothing more to loose they gave their friend’s recommendation to contact me a try.

When first contacted the tide and waves were such that I would not be able to get out far enough into the area the ring was lost at. The next day the swells were done to about a foot and the low tide was at 2:30. Perfect for shot at finding the ring. With e-mails and a picture of were the ring was lost in hand I found a “free” parking space and headed to the water. The second pass and I had the wedding band in my scoop.

I called Lindsay and made arrangements to return the ring via the USPS. A request for a photo of Mike with his reunited ring for the book of smiles.
