Engagement ring recovered in Green Bay snow.

  • from Green Bay (Wisconsin, United States)

In early January, I received a message about a lost engagement ring from Emma, who was playing in the snow at night at her future mother-in-law’s home, and it slipped off somewhere in the yard next to the driveay .   They had shoveled the snow aside the next day and looked carefully, but could not find it.     I brought my trusty Garrett AT Pro, but decided to teach Emma how to use an analog Tesoro Umax, and perhaps recruit another potential metal detectorist to the hobby!   Sure enough, after a few surface coins popped out, she found a clear « ringy » signal.  I brushed away the snow, and revealed a beautiful emerald and gold ring that took my breath away.    I could see why she was concerned!   Her beautiful ring was back on her finger and she and her fiancé were relieved.

Lost Gold Wedding Band at 4 Seasons Resort Ko Olina…FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began as I was exiting the 4 Seasons Lagoon at Ko Olina Resort.  A gentleman named Matt had asked my bud Terry if I had found a wide gold wedding ring and not knowing, he told the gentleman to ask me as I was exiting the water.  So Matt who was on his Honeymoon from Paso Robles, California approached me as I was exiting the water and asked if I had found a wide gold wedding band while I was hunting the lagoon.  He described perfectly the 18K Gold Band I just found about 30 minutes earlier in chest deep water.  To be sure it fit him perfectly and he recognized and described a gash the ring had in it.  Matt’s lovely bride Megan joined us and told me they thought it would never be found after losing it the day before.  They were thinking it would be out to sea by now.  Thankfully the lagoons are calm and most rings just sink to the bottom and stay put.  Matt and Megan were very appreciative and happy their Honeymoon was back on a high note. Aloha to Megan & Matt!

THREE Lost Rings Found in the Snow! Morris, CT

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

Three rings were lost while Emi played in the snow with her kid – Morris, CT.

From Emi:

« I lost three rings. An engagement ring, a wedding band, and an eternity ring. They are all gold with some diamonds. I was sledding with my child, and luckily for photos, we narrowed it to a small timeframe where the areas could be indoors but most likely out in the snow. »

A photo in the main bedroom at around 9:55 AM captured all three rings still on Emi’s finger. Then, a video of Emi and her kid being pulled around on a sled in the front yard shows the rings were missing by 10:06 AM. Emi also told me she fell in the snow, so there was enough outdoor activity that I felt confident the lost rings could be outdoors. I began searching the snow, marking the areas I covered. This property was old, so there was lots of metal in the ground from centuries of occupation. Signals were ringing through my metal-detecting headphones every couple of feet. The high volume of signals complicates a snow search because, with snow on the ground, you cannot just look down and see if the rings are there. I had to dig through the snow to check every signal. It was an emotional rollercoaster for the spectators because every time I bent over to check a signal, it caused some excitement. Then, they were disappointed when they realized the signal was buried under the ground but could still ring through the inches of snow. I eventually heard a signal and pushed the snow out of the way with my foot, exposing a circular, shiny item. It was a thick gold wedding band! The engagement and eternity rings were only a short distance away in another snow pile. Emi and her family were jumping with joy to have the gold rings back!

From Emi:

« Rarely do I leave a review, but I was so impressed with Keith’s quick find. Took him 30 mins to find 3 rings I had lost in the snow. I was out sledding with my kid after a fresh set of snow and of course, didn’t think to wear gloves. It wasn’t until much later that I noticed my rings missing, and after going through photos, we narrowed it down to a small timeframe. We bought a metal detector and searched out in the snow to no avail. I emailed Keith, and he got back to me early next morning with news that he could come in a few days as he was booked. Due to the snow, it seemed like it was a busy time. He came that Sunday and gave me a 2-hour window with an approximate eta. He showed up on time with a very serious metal detector and went straight to work after asking a few questions. He’s a really nice guy with a warm but professional demeanor, and I would hire him again in a heartbeat if it happened again. He’s 100% legit and worth every penny. I am so grateful for his service and can’t thank him enough! Thanks, Keith! »

Lost Ring in Wooded Brush Found! Bridgewater CT

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

A ring was lost while helping remove a tree limb from the roadway in Bridgewater, CT.

From Nate:

« I felt the ring come off at a substantial speed due to my hand being wet. I know exactly where I was standing, which direction I was facing, and which direction (roughly) the ring went. I heard two distinct « ting » sounds behind me before it went silent, and I turned, but not in time to see where it went or how far. We searched and searched, careful not to disturb the scene too much, and even used a metal detector. We did not go more than a few feet into the wooded brush and are admittedly novices with the detector. The ring is 95% palladium with a satin exterior and chrome-like interior that is quite shiny. We tried searching at night as well as day using a flashlight. Very frustrating that we haven’t found it. »

Nate’s wife found me online, and we worked out a schedule. Nate walked me around the roadside and demonstrated the scenario with another ring (junk ring). The brush and leaves in the wooded area along the road were deep, so a newbie with a metal detector would understandably have trouble finding this ring. My wife and I found multiple targets around the wooded area and even found the neighbor’s property marker. Deep under the leaves, I finally found the lost palladium ring with my XP Deus metal detector. Nate was shocked because they had already spent hours and days across a couple of weeks searching for the lost ring, with no luck. The ring was finally back on Nate’s finger!

From Nate:

« I lost my wedding band and spent several hours, over several days, searching for it. I knew exactly where it was and even bought a metal detector to try and find it. When all hope was lost, I turned to Keith. It was more of a process than I thought, but not more than the ring was worth to me, so, in the end, it was absolutely the best decision. He was professional and efficient. He found the ring in less than an hour! »

Lost Heirloom Wedding Band Found in the Yard! Carlisle, Massachusetts

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

A lost heirloom wedding band found in a yard in Carlisle, Massachusetts! Nick was cleaning up the kiddie pool as part of his end-of-summer chores. He used a hose to rinse the pool parts off when he flung his hands to get the water off. A few minutes later, something didn’t feel right. He looked down and realized his heirloom wedding band from 4 generations back was missing! Such an important piece of family history gone missing brings an unbelievable amount of stress. This wedding band was made from Nick’s great-grandmother’s ring, the diamonds of which were placed in his wife’s ring – a truly irreplaceable heirloom. Nick spent some time searching the lawn, walkways, and garden spaces with a borrowed metal detector. He eventually found my website, rediscoverlost.com, and we scheduled a time to search. Soon after meeting at the property and investigating the situation, I heard a few metal-detecting signals around the areas Nick mentioned. Most of the signals turned out to be common trash. I started working my way back to where the pool was and heard a signal in one of the plants alongside the walkway. I pushed aside the vegetation and saw a gold ring wedged between the plant stalks, standing on its edge. This was the location where Nick thought he was standing when he shook his hands. Nick’s wife happened to be driving away right as I was finding the ring. Check out the YouTube video below to see her reaction!

 

From Nick:

« Having lost an heirloom (four generations back) wedding band in my yard, I was very anxious to find it. Hours of searching on my hands and knees and with a borrowed metal detector was fruitless. Keith and his wife came in and found it in about 15 minutes. I am profoundly grateful for his help. As with so many things in life, there is no substitute in this field for skill/experience and having the right equipment + knowing how to use it, and Keith ticks all these boxes. If you’ve lost something metal and have been unable to find it yourself, don’t despair – get Keith involved. »

Lost Diamond Ring Found in the Sand! Watch Hill, Rhode Island

  • from Stonington (Connecticut, United States)

A lost diamond ring was found in the sand in Watch Hill, Rhode Island! A Family was visiting the beach and was using the local facilities when disaster struck. The wife was shaking water off her hands as she walked through the sandy area when the ring flew off. Some hobbyist metal detectors happened to be walking by and tried to help out. The hobbyists found some metal trash but no ring. The family had already left town, so this was a remote search. Through maps and photos, I was able to locate the general area. Then, I found some marks in the sand that were obvious to me someone was dragging their fingers through the sand (check out the YouTube video below to see the marks). The finger marks in the sand helped me narrow down the exact area, and the search began. I found a bit of typical beach trash and had to adjust my metal detector to adapt to large metal objects under the sand and some electrical interference. I eventually came across a small signal that sounded promising. A thin diamond band emerged from the sand as I swept my metal detector across the surface. With a quick Facetime call, I let the family know the lost ring was found and met up to return the ring shortly after!

Lost engagement ring recovered using teamwork. Lincoln, Nebraska

  • from Lincoln (Nebraska, United States)

Moira got ahold of me and said she had noticed on Saturday at the 6th hole of a golf course that her irreplaceable engagement ring was not on her finger. I asked when was the last time she knew she had it. She said Wednesday night. Wow we were looking at a big window with lots of real estate. We talked for over an hour, narrowing down places to look and shortening the timeline. I agreed to meet at her house the next day. We talked about things she was going to look through in her house and I was going to work the outside, detecting and endoscoping her car. She went inside and I started to set up a grid to cover every square inch of where she threw balls for her two dogs. After some time she appeared outside with a big beautiful. She had found it while going through some places she had ran her hands. This truly was a great example of what teamwork with an experienced Ring Finder can accomplish.

Lost Claddagh Friendship ring found in Fillmore

  • from Oxnard (California, United States)

In an amazing turn of events I got a call from an old friend whose wife used to take care of my kids in daycare years ago and was also their preschool teacher. They were like family to us as they were a couple of the adults who were instrumental in helping shape our kids. Tim wanted to know if I could help find Amy’s cherished Claddagh friendship ring that her best friend had given her years ago. One of her granddaughters had asked to wear it and Amy had made her promise that she would give it right back to her after she wore it for a bit. As happens often with kids, what we ask for and what we get are two different things. Instead of giving it back to grandma Amy, she decided to give it to her sister who promptly lost it in the front yard. They had been playing on the swing and when she pushed her sister on the swing the ring went flying.

I got over there and like I suspected it would be in the grass and after a few minutes of searching I had the ring back. Needless to say the ring is back on Amy’s finger and both granddaughters learned a lesson! If you have lost your ring or other valuable jewelry call or text me at 805-290-5009 ASAP as time is not your friend when it comes to recovering your ring.

Phone tag to find the Key Fob owner in Kelowna.

  • from Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact:

Friday night I received a phone call from a fellow detectorist, who asked if I could assist a lady with a lost key Fob. He gave me the ladies number, but the  group of ladies stranded could not identify the park where they where at, they forwarded me on to their Aunt from Edmonton. By the time we figured it out it is was dark, I told them I would be there the next morning.  Saturday morning I got there at 7am, without any specific location, just by the parked red Mazda, sand or maybe the grass? I started gridding the sand, and after 30 minutes I had the Car Fob. I phoned the Aunts number, phone not in use, so I called the initial detectors request, and he did not know, but his brother did, I called his brother who contacted the lady and said she would call me back. Her friends turned up and sure enough it was their Key Fob. They started the car and drove it to the owner. Key fobs are expensive to replace, especially with the car stranded.

Lost gold shell charm at St Pete Beach, Nighttime search, and found!

  • from St. Petersburg (Florida, United States)

 The priceless smiles and appreciation when I find someone’s sentimental piece of jewelry is worth a million bucks!! It was dark out but had to try, so I went and helped Andre and his friend Jeff find the gold  shell that fell off his chain at the beach. Glad I could help 😊
