Lost a ring?

Don’t wait to call!


Jack lost his Virginia Military Institute class ring while he and his family were in Brigantine, NJ for a beach day. The ring flew off his finger while tossing a ball back to people playing in the ocean. I started a grid search in the water and eventually worked my way toward the shore. Jack and his wife thought they might have been over to the right more, so I walked toward that direction along the shoreline. Three steps later, the sentimental ring was found!

While metal detecting at one of my favorite honey holes, I discovered this silver class ring. After a quick online search I was able to locate the owner and made arrangements to mail her class ring back to her. I found out her class ring had been lost for about a month. She was devastated when she lost it. She was so happy and appreciative to have it back in her possession. She thought she had lost it forever.

If I can, even if I don’t get a call to find someone’s lost item, I do my best to try and reunite it with the rightful owner. Being honest, having integrity and doing the right thing has its greater rewards.

I received a call from Mark, saying he had lost his 14K white gold class ring in a field with high grass. Along with a few other items. I agree to meet him yesterday after work. Once I get there, I realize this one is going to be like finding a needle in a haystack with how tall the grass was. I finally had to use my truck to flatten down some of the high grassy areas.

I geared up and began swinging and listening to all the tones. I wasn’t 100% sure what this ring would sound like, since I have never found a man’s High School class ring yet.

After about 3.5 hours of swinging, fighting the heat, sweating, bugs and high grass I called it a night. I decided to return the next day, since I had to come back up that way already for something else.

I used my truck again, to flatten down more high grassy areas so I could have better chance at finding this ring. After about another 2 hours of swinging, sweating and digging signals to get them out of the way. I finally get that sweet sound of GOLD!! Solid VDI 53 on the Garrett AT MAX w/the Reaper coil!! BOOM it had been found. I called Mark up and we met up while he was working his Amazon route nearby to return his ring to him!

I love doing this for folks. I wish I could find them all, but I especially love the ones I am able to find and return!!

If you have lost a class ring, there is still a chance that an expert metal detectorist and or item recovery specialist can help find it for you. Contact TheRingFinders.com to find someone that can help you in your area.

Here is a story below that clearly illustrates the power of THE RING FINDERS website and how yet another person was able to be reunited with his college class ring because of professionals listed on the elite international directory of metal detectorists!

Bill of Forest Hill, Maryland was not unfamiliar with losing rings. He lost his wedding band 2 to 3 years earlier and his 1985 University of Maryland class ring had been previously lost 1 to 2 years before losing it yet again more recently.

On one particular day, the civil engineering graduate from the University of Maryland walked his 5 month old chocolate Labrador retriever from the garage over to the front walkway of his home. As Scout the puppy grabbed a stick that was offered to her mouth by its master, Bill eventually let go of the piece of tree limb and immediately he felt his class ring slide off of his finger and jettison towards the front yard.

Bill looked everywhere for his special class ring of 36 years but he could not find it anywhere on his front lawn. Since he had experience losing the same ring in the past along with his wedding band, the gentleman went to the local equipment rental center and rented a metal detector to search for the missing 10 karat yellow gold keepsake. The machine that he used was a Garrett Ace 250. There were lots of beeps and bleeps that he kept hearing from the detector and when all of his efforts failed to recover the jewel, he eventually returned the rental back to the store.

This civil engineer was not about to give up that quickly. The extremely brilliant and determined man designed a special grid out on his lawn in order to help him hunt down the class ring. He bought stakes, string and tape from the hardware store and made perfect intersecting right angles and square quadrants in order to account for every square inch of lawn that he would be detecting once again. Bill returned to the rental center one more time and rented an old Garrett Crossfire 2 to assist him on his next search attempt. Sadly, all of Bill’s efforts led to no avail. It was as if the class ring had disappeared into thin air!

When the frustrated man completed his 4th hour of searching for the ring with nothing to show for all of his efforts and time invested into the project, Bill got onto the internet and searched for another solution. That’s when he found THE RING FINDERS and that’s also when I am introduced into the story.

I really enjoyed talking with my potential client on the phone one particular night. He went through all of the details with me and I was more than happy to assist in helping to solve this mystery of the disappearance of Bill’s gold sentimental keepsake. We agreed to meet the following day.

When I arrived at my client’s lovely Forest Hill, Maryland property, Bill came over to greet me and he immediately showed off his amazing grid pattern that he designed on the front lawn. I told him that I was extremely impressed with his work. What else would you expect from a civil engineer who worked for NASA and some other very reputable companies over the years?!

Once I got completely oriented with everything, I returned back to my vehicle and got out all of the necessary gear needed to begin metal detecting. When I confirmed that the ring was definitely not inside the parameter of Bill’s search grid by scanning my machine over every grid quadrant, I then laid down my own grid lines which stretched not only wider from west to east, but also farther north to south. Experienced metal detectorists and item recovery specialists like myself will look « outside the box » just in case the ring flew farther than anticipated.

After I finished swinging my coil over the first three grid lanes that I had laid down on the lawn (approximately 20 minutes of detecting), I got a very good target signal registering on my machine. Immediately, I knelt down to investigate what the object might be. I was pretty sure it was exactly what I was looking for. Moments later, I was able to positively identify the target as being Bill’s lost yellow gold university ring!

It turned out that Bill just didn’t look far enough passed his search structure and his well-constructed grid pattern was way too short in distance and in width. I was able to recover the ring approximately 20 feet farther than where Bill had stopped searching. In total, the ring traveled over 35 feet! Like I shared earlier, metal detectorist specialists like myself have to constantly look « outside the box » and I’m sure glad that I did so for my client’s sake!

When I surprised my client with the ring, he appeared to be in complete shock! Bill was beyond thrilled that he was able to get back his very special keepsake! Even more so, he was very intrigued at how far his ring traveled from its initial take off location. He said he would have never thought to look farther as he would not have believed that the ring could have ended up so many feet away!

It just goes to show that everybody has their specific expertise. Bill was an engineer for NASA and yet he was even stumped with finding this lost piece of jewelry! He told me that he was extremely happy that he contacted my services rather than give up and spend years ahead wondering where his special graduation trophy had ended up out there somewhere on his front lawn!

In conclusion, if you want to find your long lost class ring, there is still hope. Yes, hope can be found by calling a ring finder on THE RING FINDERS website to locate a metal detectorist nearest to you!

Pottsboro, Tx – Her Father buried $300,000 in the backyard, Did we Find it All?

  • from Dallas (Texas, United States)


We got a call from Alberta, Canada from a very nice lady named Heidi, she said that her father had passed and that she was the executor of the estate in Pottsboro, Texas.  She said her father was a Prepper and a Horder.  He had left her an envelope with instructions on where he had buried up to $300,000 in silver coins in his backyard.

The family was able to find and dig up up what they believed at the time was all of the PVC Tubes with the coins from the yard.  But they were concerned that maybe there were others buried in the yard someplace.  They just wanted to be sure before selling the property.

So she ask us to scan the property to be sure nothing was left and to reopen all the PVC tubes that they knew about to be sure everything had been removed, and it had.

It was 95 degrees on Fathers Day morning at 8am to do our search.  We searched the entire backyard and then dug up the PVC Tubes where the known coins had been found.  It was thrilling to think that so much in coins had been buried there.  It really was like digging for buried treasure.

It was a great day and another satisfied customer for the Dallas Ring Finders…

After finding my previous ring that was lost for 15 years, a friend of that person’s saw his post and posted that they wanted me to try to find his. I reached out to them and found out his lost ring was lost for over 15 years. This time it was a NC STATE college class ring. Ed lost it while mowing and throwing limbs into the wooded areas. It took me four hours to find it after searching on the opposite side most of the morning. I finally got a VDI 68 range that wasn’t a piece of aluminum or a bullet casing. I had finally found it after an exhausting four hours of intense searching and dedication of moving leaves and limbs in one area. I was driven, persistent and determined to find his ring. He was 100% certain it was out there. I couldn’t give up, I just had to keep swinging, until it was found.

Lost Ring Westfield NJ… Found!!!

  • from Millburn (New Jersey, United States)

I recieved a text from a woman about 3 weeks ago whose husband had lost his class ring somewhere in their house.  I explained that I wouldn’t be much help in finding the ring inside, because of all the competing larger metal items.  I gave her some tips on where to look and sent her some good luck wishes.  Well, she texted me again with good and bad news.  Her husband had found his ring but… it was lost again, this time outside.  We made plans to look for it the following day.  When I arrived, her husband recounted how he had thrown a large stick into the brush and ivy along their property and watched his ring fly off.  He had a pretty good idea of where it landed, so this was a pretty quick hunt.  A couple of swings and the target was under my coil! Happy to reunite another ring and owner!! 🙂

Ishmael lost his grandfather’s class ring in Sea Isle City, NJ. The ring flew off his finger while he was throwing a football and landed somewhere in the sand.

Lost High School Class Ring Found Sea Isle City NJ by Ring Finders South Jersey

I was tagged in a Facebook post on Friday evening about a class ring that was lost in the ocean in Sea Isle City, NJ. Alisa called me and explained how her daughter Rachel lost her class ring while surfing on Friday. The initial attempt on Saturday morning was limited due to high tide, so we met again later in the afternoon to go out farther.  After a through grid search from the water’s edge to chest deep water, the Sacred Heart Academy class ring was found and returned!
