Gold Diamond Engagement Ring and Matching Band Lost, Recovered and Returned outside Wilmington, DE!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Thanks for the referral from fellow Ring Finder, John Favano. Judy and Tom got in touch with me to help them locate Judy’s lost diamond engagement ring and matching wedding band. This is one of those ring finding missions where you’re thinking you have a slim chance of being successful in finding. Judy and Tom went to a local winery the day before where they met some friends and relaxed in a grassy outdoor space….both the area where they parked and sat were basically grassy fields. Judy knew she left the house with her rings on….and when she got home later…they were both missing off her hand. Unfortunately she had no recollection of taking them off or noticing when they were missing while at the winery. She did say that sometimes while her husband was driving she would take her rings off to moisturize her hands. So i figured the best chance would be checking where they parked…assuming Judy took off the rings, put on her lap in car, forgot to put back on…then got out of car. If I didn’t find in parking area I would proceed to area where they sat in grassy fields…then continue to scan the entire area. I met Tom at the winery and he had a good idea of where they exactly parked …I set my machine to just target gold signals…and began to scan the parking area. Within 2 minutes I received a surface gold signal on my machine…looked down…there it was! The diamond engagement ring! I bent down picked it up…searched with my eyes for the band. No luck. Grabbed my machine and 6 inches from where I found the diamond ring I got another surface gold signal. After pushing the deep grass away….there it was…the band! How happy I am to come through for this very nice couple!


Amazing, Sentimental Huge Gold Cross Lost, Recovered and Returned in Media, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Shanna and Andrew were referred to me by fellow Ring Finder, John Favano. Shanna’s husband, Andrew, was playing soccer with some buddies when his necklace chain broke in the middle of the field. He stopped immediately and was able to catch the chain but somewhere in the commotion the huge gold cross slipped off. The way they described the cross over the phone I thought they would find on their own for sure without aid of a metal detector…but after several hours no luck. So off I went to assist…the cross was extremely large, ornate and sentimental. Andrew had acquired while in Navy and it meant the world to him. When i got there and saw the field…I was still surprised they didn’t find…yes it was a large area but they knew where the chain broke and the grass was cut short. I turned my machine on….and started a methodical grid search…even at that point I figured I would see with my eyes before my detector picked up. But NO….as I’m casually scanning i stop in my tracks when I get a booming mid tone signal. I look down and there is this huge, amazing, pirate treasure looking, gold cross! To see the joy on Andrew’s face when I handed his cross back to him is why I so much enjoy being part of the Ring Finders!

Gold Wedding Band Lost, Recovered & Returned in Yardley, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received a Saturday afternoon text from Joel regarding his lost gold wedding band. We immediately got on the phone and he told me he was working with his garden hose in his backyard the day before when he felt the ring slip off is finger while pulling the hose from the storage wheel. He was convinced it fell right there in the 3-4 inch high grass….he searched for hours on hands/knees, raked the area and even bought a metal detector on amazon….but he could not find it! He mentioned his lost ring to a friend….and it turns out I had found that friends lost ring with my metal detector several years prior. So they tracked me down and I got the call. I met Joel at his house the same day he texted me…he was surprised at my confidence when I said I would find his ring in less than 5 minutes….turned out it took me 6 minutes! I was happy to be able to return his ring to him!

Ring lost while proposing

  • from Fernandina Beach (Florida, United States)

Got a text this morning with this story.  On a weekend trip to Amelia Island, my boyfriend and I walked down to the beach at the State Park.   It was on Sunday around noon and we were about to leave.  He took me down to the beach and went to take the ring out of his pocket to propose to me but the ring snagged on his his shirt and went flying.   I couldn’t believe this, he took the ring out and it snagged and now was lost.   We contacted the ranger who looked with a metal detector and we even went and bought a cheap metal detector.   We looked for 6 plus hours and gave up.  We had to get back to West Virginia.  Melissa found me on Google this morning and text me her story.   I drove to the location and within 5 minutes I got a good signal.  One scoop in the sand and the ring was found.  Her future in-laws are headed to Florida and will pick it up on their way down.   Now they have a happy proposal story.

Quick Ring Return in Rockford IL

  • from Rockford (Illinois, United States)


I received a call from Santiago around 3:30 p.m. as I was getting off of work.  He told me that he had just lost his wedding ring in his backyard while raking. He told me that he felt it come off and just couldn’t locate it.  I arrived at his house around 5:30. He took me into his backyard and showed me the area where he felt the ring slip off of his finger.  He had recently removed a swimming pool and the area was all sand. First hit was a rusty bolt, the second signal was a solid 13 on the Equinox.  I pushed the pinpointer into the soft sand and exposed the edge of his ring! Probably less than 2 minutes!

Another smile for the book!!


Ring lost in San Diego found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

While toweling off at the beach, one of  Gokul’s diamond stud gold earrings was snagged, popped off, and into the soft sand it went. Try as he might, he just couldn’t find it. He searched online for help, found TheRingFinders.com, and called me the next morning asking if I was available to search. Sure, I was available, but, Gokul decided to personally try again with a small sieve to sift the sand in the search area for his earring, and would call me back if he still needed help. An hour and half later, I got the call. I grabbed my gear, stopped and picked up my buddy Dave and headed to the site. We found Gokul at the search area and got the story on the loss. He had a match to the lost earring, so, Dave and I at least had something to go by. Wow, not much of signal on this little earring. As I started my search, I immediately got a decent signal which turned out to be the earring back. Ok, that’s a good sign that we’re in the right area. Shortly after, Dave got an iffy but repeatable signal and turned it over to me since I had the pin pointer. After chasing the signal a bit, I finally zeroed in on the signal. Success!  A happy Gokul could now head home with both his ear lobes complete. A pleasure to meet you and thanks for the reward.

Wedding Ring Found for Owner, Old Silver Beach, Falmouth, MA

  • from Falmouth (Massachusetts, United States)

Labor Day ended on a depressing note for John, who lost his year-old wedding ring in chest-deep water a couple of hundred feet offshore.  I received a call from him in early evening, asking if I was ‘the ring finder’ and if I could search for his ring.  I of course said that I would, but it would have to be the next day as we were entertaining holiday guests.  We met at the beach near low tide the following day and I did a 2-hour search in the area where John felt that he’d lost the ring.  I called a halt as it was getting dark but I told John I’d be back the next day to expand the search area.  On reflection, he thought maybe he’d been somewhat farther south when the ring slipped from his finger, so I planned to work that area when I returned.  After about an hour of searching that area the next day, I got a sweet booming signal that cried out ‘RING’ and soon had John’s hefty wedding band in my scoop.  With a call to John, we agreed to meet at the beach the next morning, and I had the great pleasure of being able to give John his beautiful ring and share in the joy of its return.  Another great day for The Ring Finders!


John’s buttery gold ring.


Definitely a lead contender in the book of smiles.


John’s ring, back where it belongs.

Ring lost at Pacific Beach found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Elise was enjoying Labor Day at the beach, but, after rubbing some lotion on her hands, her precious gold ring given to her by her sister, slipped right off and into the soft sand, turning the sweet day suddenly sour. The next day after an online search brought her to TheRingFinders.com, she contacted me for help. Even though our local beaches get swarmed by detectorists on a holiday weekend like this, it was still worth a try, so, I got all the particulars and agreed to meet her at the location. Elise sent me a photo of the ring showing that it wasn’t an actual ring in shape, but, a horseshoe shape. Knowing that now, the I.D. number would be impossible to predict, but, probably a lot lower than if it were a complete circle. I started my grid and scooped anything that wasn’t iron. After a bunch of gum wrappers reading 1-4 on my Equinox 900, a few other bits of foil, a couple of coins, I get another sketchy 2-3 reading. Probably another gum wrapper, but, surprise, surprise, it was her ring. A happy Elise can now go home and relax now that the lost has been found. A pleasure to meet you Elise, and thank you for the reward.

Lost Ring @ Basketball Court in Westampton NJ Found by Dave Milsted

  • from South Jersey (New Jersey, United States)

I woke up to an email from Rickey. It said that he lost his wedding ring on Sunday while playing basketball. I wrote back, and he called me. We set up to do a search later that day after work. 

We met at the courts, and he explained that he put his phone under his mother’s chair and put his ring on top of the phone. This was in the grass, which was 4 -5 inches long and thick. The ring is black & silver titanium. He said his 2-year-old son picked up the phone to give it to his daddy. He said he spent about 4 hours looking for it but was giving up hope that it would be found. 

He showed me the area that he thought his mom’s chair was in. I said I would start searching a little farther away and work my way to where he thought it was. Being around a basketball court, there were a lot of metal objects in the area. I was looking for a surface sound. I could tell there were a lot of coins, bottle caps & pull tabs around. I will go back another time to clean out the coins. 

It only took about 10 minutes for me to get the sound I was looking for. I bent down and spread the grass to see his ring. I picked it up and showed him. The look on his face was priceless. He told me he had been in the dog house since losing the ring. Hopefully, this will make things better. 

I love my hobby!!
