I was referred to Karim by Fellow ring finder Ed Cropski. While Karim and his family were at the beach in Spring Lake NJ, Karim’s Heirloom ring slipped off his finger and disappeared in the sand. I met them at the beach in about 30 mins and once he showed me the area where they were I got right to work. Within 10mins Karim had his ring back! Him and his family were so happy and relieved that I found it. Another Happy ending! Jersey Shore Ring Finder Jersey Shore Ring Finder Facebook The Ring Finders New Jersey
3 Days ago Joana was referred to me by fellow Ring finder Ed Cropski. She reached out to me within a few hours and explained to me that while she was in town visiting family her necklace broke while body surfing with her kids and had lost her late husbands ring and her late mothers ring. She gave me photos of where she was sitting and where she was swimming so my friend Dennis (Another Ring finder member) and I went there that night to conduct a search. After about 3hrs we were unable to find ether of them. I then reached out the next day only to find out we were a little too far over from where we needed to be. So we went again the following night and searched some more and bingo! I found both rings, About 1-2ft apart from each other! They had already sank about 8″ deep!. Joana was so very happy and relieved when i sent her a picture to let her know I had them. Another great ending to the story!

Recovery #19 for 2021 and the biggest recovery I have ever been a part of.
Back in May I was contacted by fellow Ring Finder John Favano about assisting with a search for many family heirlooms that were lost during a tragic house fire in NJ. After many months of the homeowners waiting to get approvals and permits to begin work on the homesite we were finally able to access the site and begin searching. Together along with the family and demo crew, We were able to recover quite a few very valuable items over the course of a few days so far and possibly more to come. Despite the tragic loss of their home, The family are all safe and now have some added comfort that their heirlooms are not lost forever…
A few days ago I was contacted by Nick. While at his Mother in laws house he lost his wedding ring in the front yard a few months back. He showed me the area and within about 5mins of searching I found it! He was surprised I found it so quickly and very happy as well! Another good ending!
This afternoon I was contacted by fellow detectorist Scotty O’Shea about his friend Kari who works in the healthcare field. While Kari was at a park with one of her clients who is non-verbal young adult, He became pretty upset when it was time to leave the park so in protest he had pulled Kari’s necklace off and tossed it into the grass. Scotty wanted to help but he was at work over an hour away and could not. I was available for a few hours so I met Kari at the park as soon as possible. She explained to me the pendant is the most important part as it is a pendant her late Mother used to wear that she wore all through her cancer treatments and she held in high regard. It helps Kari everyday the same way it did for her Mom so it is very special to her. Once she showed me the area I got to work. There was a lot of targets in the ground as it caused my machine to sound off 2-3 times with every swing of the coil. It took a little while but finally I had her pendant in my sights! I stayed as long as I could to find the chain as well but it was not showing up and she told me she was going to get another. She was just so happy and relieved that I found her pendant! Another happy ending!
Earlier in the day I was contacted by Margie. While she was at the beach as high tide was coming in she ventured into the surf up to her chest. As she was trying to keep from getting knocked over by a wave her rings slipped off her finger. These rings are very special to her and her family. One is her late father’s wedding band and the other is her Late mother’s. Once I got the details I needed I went there during low tide and spoke to her again to make sure I was in the right area. I started gridding and slowly worked myw ay into deeper water. after about 1-1/2 hours in knee deep water I got the first tone I was looking for. Out came her father’s ring! Then almost a foot away another tone, Her Mother’s ring was now safe in my hands as well! I sent her a photo and then spoke to her on the phone. She was shocked that I found them but also very happy and relieved! I met her daughter 20 minutes later to give them back. She was also very happy to see them! I love it when a plan comes together!
I was contacted by Charlie and his wife Susanne on Thursday July 15th. When they were visiting the beach in Seaside Park NJ, Charlie went into the water for a swim but he forgot to remove his necklace and wrap it around his wrist while holding the medallion like he usually does. As soon as he dove into a wave his necklace came up and over his head and disappeared into the surf. Charlie has been wearing this necklace for 40 years! Not long after, 3 guys came by while metal detecting and tried to help find it to no avail. Charlie left his contact with one of them (Keith Pederson, Who also recommended he calls the Ring Finders) Encase they find it. The other 2 searched for days but they still could not find it. One of them unfortunately had every intention of keeping it. Which is why I always tell people to be careful who they give information to and always make sure you call a professional with proven track record of returning lost items like us here at TheRingFinders.com! The necklace has now been out in the surf for a week. After getting the details I needed, I went out there the very next morning before sunrise to grid the whole slope of the beach as the tide goes out. Coming up empty handed I waited until the sun started coming up and proceeded to get into the water. The surf was a bit on the rough side but tolerable. As I walked along the drop off and turned around to go a bit into deeper water I heard a nice solid tone. I carefully dug it out with my scoop. Low and behold I had Charlie’s necklace!. I sent him and his wife a photo and got the reaction I never get tired of! They were so happy with joy that I found it!.
This morning I was contacted by Hope after getting home from another recovery. The day before while at the beach with her husband she was holding her husband’s wedding band on her finger for safe keeping and not long after it slipped off her finger into the sand. They looked for awhile but were unable to find it. She was then referred to me on local Lavallette community page. I made arrangements to meet her at the spot where she was. Within a minute of beginning my search I had her husbands ring in the scoop! Another success and happy ending!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Marcia on behalf of her step-son Angelo. While Him and his father Chuck were working on the plumbing at a customers house in Brigantine NJ, Down in the tight crawlspace, At some point Angelo noticed a gold necklace laying in the sand. Wondering how it got there or who it belonged to he quickly realized it was his. The clasp had opened somehow. But the Pendant that was on the necklace, An heirloom St. Christopher medallion Handed down by his late grandfather and then given to him by his father Chuck. Generations of firefighters.. At First they decided to use a metal detector a friend was going to loan them before having me take the hour ride to see if they could find it. A few days later Marcia contacted me to let me know they were unable to find it and that they would like to come down there and give it a try. It took a little while for our schedules to align until today. After doing some military crawling under some pipes and climbing over others, And weeding through various old metals like screws and melted lead/solder I finally got the kind of tone I was looking for! Buried a few inches down was the pendant! Angelo and Chuck were thrilled I was able to find it for them! I was very happy to get it back to them where it belongs!
I also included some photos of the crawlspace so everyone can see the types of places these things can happen.
I was referred to Jessica and Steve by fellow RingFinder Jeff Laag. One day while Steve was enjoying play time at the beach with his kids, At some point he noticed his wedding band was no longer on his finger. They reached out to Jeff who then reached out to me about searching for it. I met Steve at the beach the next day and he showed me the approximate area where he thought it may have been lost due to digging in the sand. After about 10 minutes of searching I found it! Steve was shocked I had found it and so quickly. I explained to him it helps a great deal when the person who lost an item can show me the area. He called back his wife Jessica to share the great news. They were both very happy and thankful. Another wonderful day!
