Ring Lost in a Car, Recovered in Calgary

  • from Cochrane (Alberta, Canada)

She was the passenger in the car and dropped her ring. She looked three times and still no luck. Using an endoscope, I was able to look into the seat rails and sure enough, there it was tucked away and out of sight. Watch the video to see the end results.

Lost wedding ring in the grass, Manahawkin NJ, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

I was over on LBI checking out the beach when I received a call from Stephen. He had been doing yard work earlier in the day and noticed his wedding ring was not on his finger when he was wrapping it up for the day. Stephen had stated that between raking leaves, trimming some bushes, and a few other odds and ends around the yard, somehow his wedding ring went missing. I asked him if anything was brought to the recycling center, and his response was no, which was a big relief. I told him I could swing by in about 30 min. which worked perfect for the both of us. Once I arrived we went over in detail exactly what he was doing, and then we narrowed it down to the most likely place his ring could have been lost. After a short discussion, we headed over to the area he had been bagging some leaves, and in the same spot he had been loading brush into cans. I made a half dozen passes with my machine, when I received a really nice signal, and BINGO, there was Stephens wedding ring just a few inches under some yard debris. The look on his face was priceless as I handed his lost ring back.

  • from Jacksonville (North Carolina, United States)

Back on November 12th 2023 a lady called me and said her niece had lost a very sentimental family heirloom gold ring in a patch of ivy while visiting from California for a wedding.

The niece had already left to go back to California. She was so heartbroken she had lost the ring. It was about a two hour drive, but I jumped in the truck and made my way out to try and find it. By the time I got there it was going to be dark in about an hour.

In just a few mins I had found the ring in the ivy and was able to return it to the aunt.

Fast forward three months later and I finally get a picture of the niece with her lost ring back on her finger again!

This gold ring was 1 of my 360 total rings I found in 2023!

Lost Ring? Things To Think Of To Get Your Ring Back (Kingston Ontario)

  • from Kingston (Ontario, Canada)

If You Lost Your Ring? What can you do?

  1. Retrace your steps.
  2. lost your ring at home? Tidy up each room you were in before you noticed it was missing.
  3. Check unusual places. (Like the shower, Or sink drains all over the house) check coat pockets, gloves, hand bags, sweaters and laundry machines, inbetween couch cushions, ect…
  4. For a diamond ring or jewelry item, try turning off the lights and Use a flashlight. Diamond’s will reflect like a mirror when light hits it.
  5. Take a break from looking, re-group, and think about something else (if at all possible) often the place you put your item will come to you when you take your mind off of worrying about it for a while, maybe Ask a friend to lend a fresh pair of eyes to your search.
  6. If your ring is insured, and before you decide to file a claim, call your local Ring Finder specialist.

If you have not heard about The RingFinders, now’s the time to find one closest to you.The is a directory of metal detecting specialists with a passion and knowledge for metal detecting. Chances are there is one in your area that you were not completely unaware of.

Ryan and I can be found on the directory, we are detecting specialists with a passion for finding lost items such as cell phones, car keys, and yes, even engagement and wedding rings, or any jewelry for that matter.

Regardless wether you lost your ring at home, or in public, there are some steps to take in order to try and recover your lost item.

  1. Don’t wait to act & remember, the longer you wait the more lost your item becomes.
  2. Retrace your steps. It is important to try and remember as much detail as you can about the time you think you lost your item. (The success rate to find lost items are much higher within the first 24 to 48 hours in our experience, although finding lost items can be found even after several years has passed, however take note that the success rate is much lower in these cases.)
  3. You may wish to contact your local police station, jewellers and pawn shops. Someone may have already turned it in.
  4. If you know about The Ring Finders? Do not hesitate to call us. We love to help & this is what we do.
  5. Lastly if you have exhausted all of the above and still no luck? Replacing a lost ring is a lot easier when you don’t need to pay for it out-of-pocket if all else fails? & If your item is insured, then you can file a claim. I know this doesn’t help to replace the sentimentality of a specific item such as an engagement, or wedding ring, but at the very least the piece itself may be able to get replaced.

So, How much does it cost to hire our services through ?

“Based on our services”.

Whether at home, the park, the beach, swimming, hiking, or almost any other outdoor activity you can think of. If you loose a significant or sentimental piece of jewelry? Then consider contacting us, your RingFinders metal detecting specialists


Our detecting service usually work on a reward type basis. Yes we do have a small, non negotiable $40 call out fee. On top of that call out fee, we will work on either a percentage, hourly, or even a reward basis if your item is found and returned.

So what happens if an item cannot be recovered.?

In this scenario, all you would pay for, would be the call out fee of $40, again this is based on our service.

What does the $40 get you.

1st & foremost, the call out fee gets a professional metal detecting specialist to the location where you believe you lost your item.

2nd – we will be brining equipment with us to help assist with the recovery. In many cases we will have somewhere in the range of $1K to $3K in equipment and can be significantly more for water recoveries.

3rd – and even more importantly than brining all the actual gear needed to help find your lost item, we will be bringing years of experience to know how to use the equipment to help recover an item that you are unable to find yourself.

Also remember that we may very well have some distance to travel in order to get to you even before any searching begins. We cover a large area with Kingston being our central location.

I know for Ryan Pugh & I, we will often travel in excess of an hour or more in 1 direction just to get to a clients location. With many successful recoveries. Both Ryan and I will often attend a search together. We do not double the “call out fee” to have both of us on site, even though the customer is getting double the value of the service. So the $40 is to cover expenses and our time that we incur just to get to you so we can help recover an item that we did not loose to begin with. Hence the non negotiable “call out fee”.


If the item is recovered and returned, then a reward should be discussed prior to either of us even leaving our home so that there are no surprises to either party involved once the item is found. We will do our best to work within your budget. We will be asking you several questions to get as much information as possible including what the lost item is worth to you if we should be successful & happen to find it for you?

We are apart of this great organization called The RingFinders, & are here to help. So if you’re in need of a detecting specialist, then don’t hesitate, give us a call today, you’ll be glad you did.

Lost ring in the snow (Found) Kingston Ontario. (2024)

  • from Kingston (Ontario, Canada)

At approximately 8:15PM on January 8th 2024 James had received a call from another RingFinder member by the name of Stephane Coutu in regards to a man by the name of Mohammad, residing in Kingston Ontario, who had just lost his tungsten ring in the snow and was wondering if I would be able to go and help recover the lost ring. Stephane gave me the gentleman’s contact information to reach out to him.

I immediately reached out to Mohammad and told him I would be available the following day in the afternoon to go and help.

After looking at the weather I realized that there was another heavy snowfall expected to arrive sometime overnight and was expected to continue for several days. This would pose a problem for the recovery as I knew that city plow trucks and sidewalk machines would be out in full force and may cause the ring to be more difficult to find by the time I was able to make it over to help Mohammad recover his ring.

I reached out to my ring recovery partner, and now fellow RingFinder Ryan Pugh to see if he was available to go over immediately to help Mohammad out? Thankfully Ryan had his equipment charged up and ready to take on the task.

Ryan called Mohammad and was heading out his door to go meet with Mohammad at exactly 9:27PM that night. at 9:57PM, I received a text from Ryan saying the customer had his ring back.

A quick message to Mohammad revealed he was very happy to have someone get to him so quickly, & thanked me for getting someone out so quickly to him.

Sorry about the pic but the lighting was poor and apparently Ryan’s hands were frozen after this recovery. Here is a link to a a video (short) of Ryan’s recovery.

I received an email from Sheila describing how she lost her shed keys while shoveling snow after the last storm. They were in her jacket pocket, and when she was finished, they were gone. We set up an appointment after she left work at 7 pm.
Luckily, it was a small search area, as it was the coldest night of the year, 23 degrees. She showed me the area that she thought they would be in, so I started my search. About 15 mins and 21 cents later, no keys were found. I had to ask Sheila to move her car; because it was at the edge of the search area, and my detector was sounding off to the car.
5 minutes later, I had her keys. They were buried in a pile of snow & ice that was under the rear of where she had parked her car. She was so happy. She needs access to her shed as another snowstorm is coming in a few days.

Lost Wedding Ring, Ormond Beach, Florida….Found by Happy Owner!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

Mike’s Emergency Metal Detecting Service just for you! If you have lost a ring or something precious to you…don’t wait until tomorrow because time will work against you! Please call ASAP…Call now 321-363-6029!

Elaine called me to ask for help finding her husbands wedding ring that was lost « somewhere » either in their home or outside of their house! (That sort of information usually indicates that a thorough search could take hours!) So we met Elaine and her husband Bill and asked lots of questions about the day his ring went missing. Bill had done a bunch of work in one of their rooms…like tearing up old carpeting and hauling it outside along with a big mattress and other items. One thing he did remember was when he was showering he recalled scrubbing his hands with a small scrub brush and while drying off he noticed that his ring was not on his finger. This is his wedding ring that he has worn for 46 years and he rarely takes it off. So we took up the drain cover in the shower thinking that just maybe it fell down the drain while scrubbing his hands and showering. But after running my endoscope down as far as possible and not seeing it we determined it must be somewhere else. We looked outside everywhere that Bill remembered going on that day and then we searched inside as much as possible. It is a large home…10,000 square feet to be exact so there was allot of area and after a few hours we called it quits.

I tried to encourage Bill and Elaine that there is always hope of finding it and not to give up hope. Reminding them to be sure to call me if and when they do find it! And….8 days later I get a call from Elaine saying they found it under a pile of old sheets and curtains that came out of the room that they are remodeling! It is always a pleasure to help folks find and locate their lost item whether I am able to find it myself or help them find it on their own.

Maybe you have lost something and need help….do not delay, call ASAP! 321-363-6029

I received a call from a guy who told me his wife was besides herself. He explained that her mother passed recently and they made a 18K gold charm with her mothers fingerprint on the charm. They just got a new puppy and his wife was playing with the puppy on the lawn when she jumped up and grabbed the necklace and broke it. She was able to find the necklace but not able to find the small gold charm which was about the size of a dime. They even borrowed a friends metal detector and searched for hours without luck. I arrived to the house and they showed me the lawn where the charm was lost. The grass was vey thick and dense. It took me about 15-20 min to recover and return this very special charm.

If you lose something of value, I may be able to help you… Call or Text anytime…Adam 714-785-5111

I cannot thank Adam enough! My mom passed away a year and a half ago! Her death was sudden and so difficult to accept. Shortly after her death, I had a charm made with her fingerprint to wear so that I would always have a piece of her with me! This past week we adopted the sweetest golden doodle puppy you’ve ever seen❤️ Her name is Juniper! I was in our front yard playing with Juniper, when she jumped up and grabbed my necklace. The chain caught on my shirt but the charm with my moms fingerprint went flying! Our grass is so dense and I could not find it anywhere! My husband and I searched for 3 hours or more! I even started to fear that maybe Juniper had swallowed it! My friend even let me borrow her metal detector that she bought for her children to take to the beach. No luck! 😢 my husband researched “ring finders” and found Adam! Adam assured us that if that charm was in our yard he would find it! He seemed very confident! When Adam got to our house we showed him the area where I was playing with Juniper. He began his search with his equipment and within 20 minutes had found my special charm!!!❤️ Adam was genuinely so nice and I believe he wanted to find it as much as I did!!! The empathy and kindness he showed was extraordinary! God NEVER fails in sending the right people at the right time!
