Lost Ring Found in Narragansett Rhode Island

I received a call from Dustin who was vacationing with his family in Narragansett.  While enjoying a day at the beach two days earlier, Dustin realized he had forgotten to take his wedding ring off, so he stashed it in their beach bag.  After returning from the beach, Dustin’s wife emptied the beach bag and shook out the sand in the backyard.  Later that day, Dustin asked his wife if she had his platinum wedding ring. This is when they realized that the ring was in the backyard or had fallen out at the beach. Dustin and his wife searched the grass but had no luck.  I searched the backyard and found the ring in about 10 minutes.  I held the ring up and asked them “how does it feel?”  They couldn’t believe the ring was found and how quickly. I’m so glad I was able to help this nice couple

I received a call on Tuesday, July 20th, from a nice couple, Francesca and Sharon.  They had only recently got engaged, and Sharon lost her engagement ring, a lovely antique ring, a few days earlier.  They were at Colt State Park for a day of fun.  While swimming, Sharon’s ring fell off in the water.  They searched for the ring for a few days but couldn’t find it.  That’s when they decided to look for help on the internet and found my profile on  TheRingFinders website, I went to the park the same day they contacted me, but I couldn’t get out far enough into the water as it was high tide.  I met Francesca at the park three days later when it was low tide to continue the search.  After two hours of searching, I located the ring.  Francesca was amazed that the ring was found after being in the ocean for five days. She couldn’t wait to put the engagement ring back on Sharon’s hand.

Lucinda called me for help with finding her ring, a family heirloom.  The beautiful diamond ring was a gift from her mom, who received the ring as a gift from her grandfather when she turned sixteen.  Lucinda was very upset that she had lost the ring while weeding her garden.  She and her husband looked for the ring and even bought a metal detector, without any success.  That’s when they searched the internet for help and found TheRingFinders website. I searched the yard, garden, and pile of brush but didn’t locate the ring.  Behind the pile of brush, there were bushes.  After searching under the bushes, I decided to shake them.  That’s when I saw something fall and discovered that it was the ring.  Lucinda and her husband couldn’t believe it.  She hugged me.  They were so thankful that I could help return this precious item to them!

Lost Cartier Diamond Love Bracelet Found in South Kingstown Rhode Island

I received a call for help from Jen, after she lost her diamond Cartier bracelet somewhere on her 10-acre farm.  I told Jen that I would be happy to search for her bracelet the next day, which happened to be St. Patrick’s Day.  My wife accompanied me on the search.  Jen thought she may have lost it while she was feeding the farm animals.  My search included the outside pens and inside stalls of the horses, goats, and chickens but no bracelet was found.  After I confirmed that she had cleaned the animal stalls recently,  Jen directed me to an area at the far end of the property where wood chips and animal waste are dumped.  I searched this area and located half of the two-piece bracelet.   The second half could not be found in this same area.  I believed that it would probably be the areas where the animals are kept or where the hay and feed are stored.  I reminded my wife to keep an eye on the ground as it could be sitting there in plain sight.  Jen and I went to the pod where she keeps hay for the animals and went inside to search inside the storage container.  That’s when my wife looked down and found the other half of the bracelet sitting on top of  the ground in plain sight right outside the pod.  My wife and I were so excited and amazed that both halves of the bracelet were found and in different locations on this large property.  Jen was thrilled to have her bracelet back!  It was a very happy and lucky St. Patrick’s Day all around!

 

Lost Grandmothers ring found in East Providence RI.

It was late afternoon when I received a message from a very upset Allison.  She had lost her grandmother’s ring while playing with her dog in the snow at a local tennis park. At some point, she removed her gloves, and the ring fell off into the snow.  She didn’t know where the ring fell off.  Allison and her wife tried to find the ring but didn’t have any luck.  They even bought a metal detector and couldn’t find it.  Allison then turned to the internet to see if someone could help her find her grandmother’s ring.  That’s when she found TheRingFinders website and contacted me.  I responded that I would help and was on my way.  When I arrived at the park, it was dark.  I started my search with Allison holding a flashlight.  I walked about 20 feet, and the first target I hit was the ring.  She was very happy to have this family heirloom back.

Lost Engagement Ring found in Hopedale MA

On November 10, 2020, I received an e-mail from Jimena about her lost engagement ring.  She and her fiance Ivan were raking leaves two days earlier, and at some point, she noticed that her engagement ring was missing. They knew the ring had to be either in their yard or where they had dumped leaves.  Jimena and Ivan even bought a metal detector but couldn’t find the ring. That’s when Jimena searched the internet for help and found me through The Ring Finders website.  The next day,  I searched several areas, including an area across the street from their home where they dumped leaves and their front and side yards, with no luck.  Before searching the backyard,  I decided to search a pile of yard waste located at the far end of their yard, where Jimena said she had thrown some of the leaves.  I got into the pile of sticks, grass, and leaves and started my search.  The second target I hit, buried in the leaves, was the beautiful engagement ring.  Jimena and Ivan were so happy to have the ring back before their wedding, which was the next month.  I’m glad that I was able to find the ring and wish them a long and happy marriage.

On Sunday, October 18, 2020, Matt and his wife were married on beautiful Narragansett town beach, followed by a celebration in the North Beach Club House.  At some point after the ceremony, they noticed that Matt’s wedding band had slipped off.  Friends and family  helped  search the beach and the Club House.  Guests even got a rake to search the sand and tried using a metal detector as well.  Unfortunately, these efforts only caused the ring to sink deeper in the sand.  They decided to search the internet for help and found TheRingFinders.com website.  On Monday, Matt sent me a text message asking for my help.  As soon as I got his message, I contacted Matt to let him know that I was on my way to search for his lost wedding band.  That’s when Matt told me that the wedding band had been handed down to him by his late grandfather.  Matt and his wife live in Cambridge, MA, and were unable to meet me at the beach, so they provided photos of the two areas where they thought the ring might be.  I started my search closest to the water, and in ten minutes I found Matt’s ring about 8 inches deep in the sand.  I called him with the good news.  We met that evening, and he was thrilled to have his ring back.
