  • from Lafayette (Louisiana, United States)

Hannah lost her rose gold diamond ring in the back yard of her boyfriend, Bradley’s house. I received a call from Bradley, but a 3 week trip delayed the hunt. While he was waiting, he borrowed and rented detectors and attempted to find the ring. No luck. When I returned from my trip, I headed out to find the still-lost ring. Carrie was busy but I still brought her equipment. The search area was not large but contained a lot of coins and buried metal. That along with no published data on rose gold discrimination numbers created a lot of “false finds”. After Bradley and I covering the area without locating the ring, (Carrie’s equipment was put to good use) we started a sectioned, crawling, pin pointer search (I made this term up). On the last section I looked in an area we had not included in the original search. There, in the shade of a neighbor’s building, was the ring sitting on bare dirt, fully visible. Sometimes being lucky is better than being good. We reunited Hannah with her ring and got a load of pictures. Carrie regrets not being there for the successful hunt.

Thank you, Bradley and Hannah for the generous reward.

Lost ring found Clemson SC

  • from Clemson (South Carolina, United States)

Clemson SC metal detectorist Allen Carter, cell #(864)535-4347 call or text anytime. Great news after a week of bad. After the big SC rivalry game between Clemson and SC lead to the loss 30-31, another big loss came to. Walking home from the game my client crossed a field where he stumbled and felt his prized ring fly from his finger. He spent several hours searching and even recruited the help of his friends with no luck. With the help of a family member they located our services at Ring Finders and found me. I met him at the field where I searched for several hours myself. I made arrangements to come back soon with a great plan. I laid out a grid using surveying flags. 3 feet apart and 150 feet across from one another, I laid out the rest of my day with high visibility. Row by row and swung my coil stopping for every  beep I came across, heart pumping and jumping every time! After several hours I made my way to the very last row. I was staring at the last flag as I made my way swingin towards it. I could feel the disappointment starting creep across me when finally with only 20 feet left to go, the loudest signal rang out and screamed from my detector. There it was! Big gold and very shiny! My first recovery as a Ring Finder! It was a great feeling and even better when I made that call to let him know I had it in my hands. Some losses may be forever but with my help I was able to make this one just a temporary setback.                     

LOST WEDDING RING in Durham, NC…….. FOUND!!!!!!

  • from Raleigh (North Carolina, United States)
Got a call today from a man who lost his 14k white gold wedding ring about 2 weeks ago while cutting wood with his boys.
He had his cell phone in his front left pocket when he took his ring off so it wouldn’t interfere with wood cutting and put it in the same pocket as his phone. Then at some point he took his phone out of his pocket and it must have pulled his ring out with it.
I get to his house, get the scoop, grabbed my machine and got to searching! I started where he was when he took it off and put it in his pocket.
Less than 5 mins – Boom! We got gold!!!
Another successful ring recovery and another marriage saved!

Received a call from a young lady tonight asking me if I could try and find her promise ring, from her boyfriend, for her. She had been trying to find it for 4-5 days with a couple of metal detectors with no luck.
I drove the 1.5 hr drive, pulled up, met her, got the back story and in about 10 mins found her ring. She was shocked I found it so fast and said, “I KNOW I COVERED THAT AREA!” I advised her gold isn’t the easiest to find if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking/listening for.
I then had her bring over her machine to see where it hit up on her machine. It was in the pull tab range on hers.
2022 ring count: 198.5 (200.5 w/3 in 1 recovery) FTY
18 – Recoveries FTY

Lost 14K White Gold Wedding Band… Found in Woodbury, PA!

  • from Altoona (Pennsylvania, United States)

Alex called me and said he lost his wedding ring in his yard and asked if I could come out to try to find it. He had been working outside with his parents and been taking his gloves off and putting them on again, and it wasn’t until he got inside his house that he noticed he didn’t have his ring on his finger. I thought to myself that since he knows he lost it in his yard it shouldn’t be too hard to find, however, when I arrived at his house, his yard was the size of a couple of football fields. Alex had a pretty good idea of where he was taking his gloves off and searched for a couple of days, even using one of the old metal detectors that someone in his family had. As with the old detectors, it was picking up everything making the search nearly impossible. When Julie and I got there I had my Minelab Equinox 800 and set the discrimination so I would only pick up metal on the surface. It took some time, but after grid searching for a little over an hour, I found the ring. Alex was such a delightful young man, even giving Julie and I some handwarmers for inside our gloves while we searched. It was a pleasure helping Alex and meeting his parents!

Lost wedding band found in backyard in Ithaca, NY

  • from Sandy Creek (New York, United States)

I was contacted by Matt for his lost wedding band.  He had been doing work in his backyard including putting contents in his compost pile.  He noticed he had lost his ring and obviously wanted it back.  He searched his yard and compost pile to no avail.  He also bought a detector and tried finding it but couldn’t find it.  He finally went to the web and searched for help.  He found The Ring Finders.  I agreed to give it a try even though it would be a 2 hour drive for me.  It was cold that day, so I dressed for the weather and headed there.  Matt was nice enough to help in that he scattered the compost pile around so I could check thru it.  He said he was 80-90% sure it was in there somewhere.  After about 30 minutes I decided it was not in there.  I told him I would check the rest of the backyard where he only felt there was a 10-20% chance I would find it.  After about another 15 minutes I found it.  I was surprised to find out later that they were moving out in another week.  He was so great full that I had found it before he had to leave and would never see it again.

Ring recovered – in Wyoming Minnesota

  • from Chisago City (Minnesota, United States)

So last week I received a call from a wonderful couple that had lost a wedding ring in the leaves in there back yard. This call was from a local couple about 6 miles away.  This was a treat for me because it had been a while since I have had a call that was just down the road. I know from what I was told that she really cared about her ring.  She was very conscientious about losing the ring so to be safe she removed it and placed it in her pocket.  She had done a little work in a flower garden the corner of the house and when she finished, she felt the ring in her pocket.  She also had her young son out running around in back with her in the back yard. Part of playing around they formed a big pile of leaves started to bury one another in the pile of leaves.  Following playing in the leaves her husband cleaned up the back yard raking and hauling the leaves down to a compost pile further down in the back yard. She had felt for the ring and her heart sank. It was gone. They spent several hours scouring the back yard and leaf pile looking for the ring and nothing was found.

You just know that feeling of something near and dear to your heart and it’s gone. She did a search online for and found Paul Nolan a local recovery specialist and texted him.  Somehow the text was missed and the following morning her husband gave Paul a call. He asked if I had received the text that hos wife had sent, “ No”.  So he asked if it would be possible to come out and see if we could find the ring.  About an hour later I pulled into the driveway.  They gave me a quick tour of what had happened. So I grabbed my detector and started a quick preliminary search. My primary search area was going to be the leaf pile in the back.  Within a minute of reaching the pile location I received a great signal.  I tried to carefully move some of the leaves, and it was hiding well.  I had left my pin-pointer in the car so I went back to retrieve that.  I also brought a small battery-operated blower that I grabbed. Once back at the pile I found the location with the pin pointer and put the blower on low and blew the leaves away from a small one foot circle, and there it was down between some rocks.  So I grabbed my equipment and started to hall it back up to the car. As I was heading up she came out on the deck and I asked her if she would like to come grab the ring? What you found the ring? In total disbelief.  Come on down. Her husband soon joined her and I took them down to the location where I had blowen the leaves away and they started looking after about 15 seconds she spotted it in the rocks.  She was ecstatic.    The following pictures are the ring back where it belonged and another photo of the ring.

It was really nice having a call close to home, and one that went as well as could possibly could. What a treat it was. I wish they all would go so well.  Congratulations on getting the ring back.  I am so happy for the both of you.

Once lost – now is found.

Lost ring Minnesota metal detecting recovered ring finders web site

  • from Twin Cities Metro (Minnesota, United States)

Mariam recently came to the U.S. to study at the university level in Minnnesota. While enjoying a day at a local fall festival with friends, Mariam lost a ring that her Mother gave to her just before leaving for America. The white gold ring was designed as a Mother/Daughter ring to help Mariam feel close to home while away. She rented a metal detector and searched for 3 hours only finding a few coins. While searching the internet for help, Mariam came across and called me right away. I met her out at the festival the next morning and she pointed out the area she believed the lost ring would be. It only took about 10 seconds, my first hit and I found the beautiful double heart diamond filled mother daughter ring. Congrats Mariam, so glad I could help.
