­Received a call from Coleman a young man that lost his ring downtown Clemson sc

I was able to meet up and searched the areas that Coleman thought the ring had come off While in a Scuffle several nights before.
I spent an hour searching the areas he pointed out with no luck so I broaden my search closer to a building that was not thought it would be by when I received a strong signal. Pulled the vegetation back and bingo there it was..

it’s all about not giving up and taking time to think outside the box.

VMI class ring recovered Taylors SC

  • de Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)

I received a text  from Travis’s wife about finding her husband’s VMI class ring.  I was able to meet Travis and his daughter this last Friday and heard his story. Travis said he had thrown an apple core off a friends back deck when his VMI class ring went sailing with it.  Travis had searched several days trying to find his ring with no luck. I started my search in front of the deck area then moved outward. I finally was able to get a shallow signal and using my pinpointer  to brush the grass aside. Boom there it was..

I was shocked at the size of his ring. One of the largest ring’s I have ever seen. I called over his daughter and she picked  it up and cleaned it off then we tried to surprise him. But he knew something was up when he saw both of us standing there waiting on him to come off the deck .. that’s when she gave him his ring.

You could tell his ring was very meaningful to him and having his daughter there to give it back to him was an awesome moment.

Thanks Travis for trusting me enough to find your ring.

Lost wedding band recovered! Inman,SC

  • de Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)

I received a text from Charles about his lost wedding band. I was able to text him back soon after that night and told him to call me and we would set up a time to search for his ring. Charles had lost his ring taking grass off his fishing equipment and he accidentally flung it off his finger which bounced once and rolled off the dock and fell in to the pond. After making several tries for the ring himself by feeling for it with his fingers he gave up. Charles posted a need to find his ring on craig’s list and was contacted by one of our ringfinder relatives from myrtle beach and told him to contact me.

I’m not 100% comfortable in pond water because its nasty,mucky and you sink 4 to 5 inches on each step. I brought my hip waders hoping they would be high enough to keep from getting totally wet. I was trying to dig signals in the clay bottom and after an hour I was wondering if I would ever find this titanium ring. I believe I chased this ring 2 ft before finally getting it in the sand scoop I was using.

Thank you Charles for the call and letting me find your ring and for the generous reward.
