I received a call from Stephanie who was simply heartbroken about the loss of her 10 karat white gold 10th year wedding anniversary diamond ring. She was throwing watermelon rinds off of her second story deck out towards the back of her property when her precious keepsake flew off of her finger. The watermelon leftovers mostly landed on the other side of the fence where a water runoff is located. That section is considered common land and anyone can walk back there.

Stephanie immediately went out looking for her sentimental keepsake and no matter how much she searched, there was no ring to be found. She spent hours out there with tears in her eyes hoping to spot the diamond filled piece of precious metal. Yet, all of her valiant efforts still led to no avail.

When the poor young lady wasn’t able to find the anniversary ring, her husband Mike went out with a metal detector that he bought that day and he too could not « pull the rabbit out of the hat ». That’s when Stephanie looked online and found the elite international metal detectorist directory founded by CEO Chris Turner called THE RING FINDERS. She looked up the local ring finders in her area and my name popped up.

It was such a joy talking with Stephanie over the phone and getting the entire account of what happened to her beautiful 10 karat white gold diamond ring. I told her that I couldn’t wait to get over to the property and help recover the lost piece of jewelry for the couple.

Later that evening, I arrived at Stephanie’s Middle River, Maryland house to conduct the search. The young woman reenacted exactly what happened and Mike shared where he metal detected on both sides of the fence. First, I laid grid lanes down on the back lawn and metal detected their entire backyard. Though Stephanie thought that she saw the ring fly towards the fence, I wanted to metal detect the easiest portion of the property before having to deal with the metal fence and the high grass that was on the other side of the chain link divider.

When I could not find the ring on the lawn, I packed up all of my gear and went to the other side of the fence and began searching all around that area. I found multiple pieces of watermelon rinds and I kept my scanning in that particular vicinity. It was a mess back there but I diligently detected every square inch that I could with all of the weeds and high grass that made life extremely difficult for me.

My last leg of the search had to do with switching my metal detector coil down to a smaller size coil In order for me to detect closer along the fence line. At that point in my investigation, I concluded that Stephanie must have been accurate in her remembrance that she thought she saw the ring go through the fence or over the fence. Since I couldn’t find the piece of jewelry anywhere else, I was pretty certain that I would find the ring somewhere close up against the chain link fence area.

As it turned out, I did in fact find Stephanie’s gorgeous 10 karat white gold diamond ring right up against the bottom of the chain link fence on the common property side of the divider. No one would have been able to find the MIA jewel unless they used a couple of detectors and special techniques to find « separation » between the metal fence and where the ring was buried below the grass line. I was so excited that I zeroed in on the right signal that I had been looking for all along! When my eyes beheld that beautiful piece of gold that had endless diamonds encrusted all around its lovely shell, my happiness for Stephanie could not be contained!

Stephanie and Mike were beyond elated with the news that I was able to recover the 10th wedding anniversary treasure! Just like when Stephanie expressed her emotions on the phone earlier that day, she once again broke down in tears of joy with so much gratitude in her heart for what I was able to accomplish for the couple that evening! It was all well worth the trip to Middle River, Maryland to rescue that irreplaceable keepsake! Especially after seeing the two brilliant smiles of my clients once again appear upon their countenances!

Lost Ring from Guatemala Found in Lehi, Utah

I received a call from my longtime childhood friend regarding his son and a ring he had just purchased while on a humanitarian trip to Guatemala. The whole family spent a week doing service project in villages and cities across Guatemala! What an experience!!! His oldest boy purchased a ring from a local shop to remember his special experience but shortly after returning to Utah, He lost it while having a water balloon fight in the backyard. Owen was devastated about losing the ring and I wanted to make sure to get it back to him. It took about 15 minutes to find the ring after gridding off the area in question. I think his smile tells the story of how excited he was to see his ring again!

Wedding Band Lost in Stone Harbor Canal Found Stone Harbor NJ by RING FINDERS SOUTH JERSEY JOHN FAVANO

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Lost a ring?

Don’t  wait to call?


LG gave me a call Saturday night about his lost wedding band in Stone Harbor, NJ. He was playing with his 3-year-old daughter in the water and she accidentally pulled it off of his finger. The challenge was that it was lost in the mud of the Stone Harbor Canal. It was nearly impossible to get out to the area since you sink around 2 feet down in the mud when trying to walk. I used the lucky duck float to maneuver out over the mud to the spot it could have dropped. I was able to lie down on the duck and swing the detector out in front of me. Once I got the signal, I was able to reach under the coil and dig it out. It was buried approximately 10 inches down. I pulled up the gold and platinum wedding band and showed it to LG. It just happened to be the 7 year anniversary of his engagement that it was returned.

She put that ring and another one in her cup holder but forgot to tell her boyfriend they were in there, so both dropped in the sand when he closed the beach chair.

Family Heirloom Ring Lost in Stone Harbor NJ Found by Ring Finders South Jersey John Favano

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Lost a ring?

Don’t wait to call!


I received a call from Teri about her father’s World War II ring that was lost in Stone Harbor, NJ on Saturday. Her father, who was very fond of the sea, was a Merchant Marine in World War II and his ring is very sentimental to the family. Her son, Patch, has been wearing the ring for the past few years. To keep the ring safe while on the beach, he placed it in the cup holder of a beach chair. Unknowingly, his cousin put on the backpack chair and went to the water to clean off some sand before leaving. Patch realized the ring had fallen out, and he and his family searched the area. They resigned to the thought that it was probably lost forever since it may have been dropped in the ocean.
I met up with Teri and did an extensive search of the area where it might have fallen out. I had to return a second time to be able to go out farther in the water. It was in waist-deep water that I finally got the signal. It was a great feeling when the ring showed up in the scoop and was able to be returned to the family.

Rose Gold Engagement Ring and Wedding Band – FOUND! in Mars, PA near Pittsburgh

  • from Indiana (Pennsylvania, United States)

Brian Carpenter – Ring Recovery Specialist, Pittsburgh, PA and Indiana, PA. Lost your ring or other valuable jewelry, cell phone, keys? Metal Detecting Service. Call/Text 814-244-2300 as soon as possible for assistance. I got a text from Sharon who lost her engagement ring and wedding band behind her house on an access road in tall grass. I was on my way back from a trip so I was not able to head out until the next day.

Upon my arrival Sharon took me back and showed me where she thought she lost the rings. They had been in her pocket and she believed that when she took something else out the rings must have fallen. I surveyed the area, she had been out playing with her kids and had been in the tall grass on both sides of the road. There was  steep hill on one side with a ditch and the grass in this area does not appear to get mowed.

I got started as the temperature was rising and suddenly the arm cuff separated from the shaft of my detector. This has never happened before, I was only about an hour in and had a lot more land to cover. I tried to fix it only to discover it actually snapped. It was pretty awkward but I kept going. I finished the one hill and was walking up the other side of the road heading back to take a quick break when I caught a break…the sweet sound of gold in my headphones. I looked down and had found the engagement ring. I was hoping that the wedding band would be close by. I searched the immediate area in the grass pretty hard hoping it was there. Sharon had come down to see where I had found her diamond. When she learned that they were not together she gave me a pass and said she understood if I needed to go or wanted to stop however, there was no way I was giving up just yet! It took me a little while longer but I did find the wedding band camouflaged on the road in the light gray shale.

It was the first time I had to look for a wedding band and engagement ring together. I am glad I found them both and Sharon was elated to have her rings back!

Lost a ring?
Don’t wait to call!

Matt lost his wedding band while he and his son were jumping waves in Ocean City, NJ this past Friday. The ring was lost going in to high tide. The first attempt to recover it was nearly impossible due to the rough waves from the incoming tide, so I returned the next day at low tide to be able to go out farther in the ocean where it might have dropped. After about 20 minutes of searching, I got a nice signal from the metal detector and the ring was found!
