Jack sent me a text message early Saturday morning asking if I could help find his lost ring. Jack explained to me he was body surfing Wednesday afternoon when the ring slid off of his finger. He felt the tide was High during that time and the ring would be found in the wet sand. Upon arrival, Jack led me to the beach and pointed out the boundaries he believed the ring was within and the search began parallel to the water from high to low. After a few passes, only 1 dime was found. I eventually made it to where the surf was rolling in over the beach. This isn’t much of a problem, it just slows the search process. Finally, I received a strong signal on my metal detector and my deep & wide scoop went to work and pulled out a large amount of sand containing Jack’s ring. Jack was working on the other side of the home and didn’t understand why I returned so soon. He and his family couldn’t believe his ring was found so quickly.

I was on my computer early this morning when I got a text message from a young lady at approximately 7:20 AM asking if I could help find her ring. I called her right away and we set up a time to meet in 45 minutes at Kits Beach, where she lost the ring. When I arrived at the beach I met the young lady and she showed me the approximate area where she believed she lost her ring’s. That’s right rings, she had lost two rings not just one but there was one ring with a Pearl that meant the world to her. I asked her if she could tell me the story about the ring but I could tell she was a little uncomfortable and I didn’t want to force it.
I set up my grid search and had no luck for the first hour and a half but I kept on expanding my search area and close to two hours mark I found both of her rings! I was able to surprise her with the rings and see how it made her feel to have them back on her finger. I got to hear the story about why the pearl ring meant to her, she told me a few years back she had a tough battle with depression and she bought that ring to celebrate hanging on and she did. You can only imagine with that ring meant to her to get it back, I was so honoured to be able to find it and hand it back to her and see how it made her feel.

Kaity & Zach were celebrating their recent marriage and honeymooning in Sneads Ferry, North Carolina. While they were at a friends house along Chadwick Bay, Kaity decided to take a running jump into the bay off of the boat dock. Both of her wedding rings came off of her finger into the bay and it’s soft muddy bottom. Along with friends, they both searched for the underwater rings and came across oyster shells along the way which were thrown out of the area. During the search, Zach also lost his wedding band. After hours of searching they finally gave up. A friend found Crystal Coast Ring Finders and message was sent out. Upon arrival, I was skeptical as I know these waters can sometimes be hard or soft bottoms. This one was the latter. I was searching around the boat dock in about 3 foot of water and pulling up various items from the bottom when within the first half hour Kaity’s engagement ring was brought up from the bottom. Surprisingly, her very thin wedding band wasn’t found. During the 1st attempted search, I was able to locate Zach’s missing wedding band just under the boat dock amongst other oyster shells. A 2nd attempt was made on a different day and Kaity’s wedding band was not located. I suspect it was either pressed deep into the soft black mud bottom or thrown out of the area attached to an oyster shell cluster. Kaity & Zach were mostly concerned about getting the wedding ring back in their possession.
I got a call a few days ago from Tom who said he lost his wedding band while he was cleaning out some popcorn from his car that his young kids had spilled. I drove over there and got nervous when I saw over 15 feet of bushes next to the driveway. I searched for a while with my traditional metal detector with no luck. I then started to search by using the Garret Carrot, a hand held detector. I put my arm into the bushes many times till I heard a loud signal, reached down and pulled up a clump of dirt and grass and there was Tom’s ring. He was happy to have his ring back and I was satisfied with another successful search.
On labor day we all had a great time on Cape Cod, but in the evening I discovered that I had lost my ring somewhere. After lots of detective work it appeared that I had lost it somewhere between hopping off a boat in the water, walking to shore, and returning to a cottage.
The next day I looked everywhere with no luck.
I’ve had this ring for 40 years. It was a gift from my wife, and she was crestfallen.
My last idea was to buy, or rent, or borrow, a metal detector, figure out how to use it, and try to find the ring myself. Do they even work in salt water? Who knows?
I ended up finding www.theringfinders.com in my search. Plugged in my zip code, and found several people in my local area. I immediately called Lou who is located here on Cape Cod less than 10 miles away. HE told me he would be happy to help.
I met Lou at the beach, explained the whole situation, and he started to search.
The first day he was unsuccessful. HE looked in the water, on the beach and in the yard at the cottage. I assumed we were done, but he told me he doesn’t give up easy. I had my doubts at that point but I was out of options.
The next day it was cold and raining, but at about 4pm
Jake reunited with his ring!
Lost after a dinner outing, the ring was recovered.
You folks do a great service, and I want to thank Lou personally here, and also tell others who have lost something of monitory or emotional value: reach out to them! They will help you.
On June 12, 2015 I received a call from Wesley Moore concerning his sister-in-law’s missing necklace charm that held great sentimental value. It was lost during a day at the beach playing with her three-year old son two weeks prior to his calling me. I met up with Wes and thankfully he had a very good idea where it was lost on the beach. After marking an area for me, I was able to retrieve the charm after a short 10 minute search. Smiles all around! Happy I was able to assist Wes with reuniting Beth with the charm bearing her son’s name. Great day on the beach!!!!!!!!

Got a call from a young man near Rock Hill, SC. He stated he had lost his ring while playing with his dog. Like I stated earlier it was an almost 3 hour drive one way. I texted him that I was on my way and that I should get their by 6-6:15 pm. I arrive and got the details from him. After about 45 mins and 5 yards later. I saw it after my coil swung over it and didn’t go off. I was like “WHY DIDN’T I HEAR ANYTHING?” After un-notching 65-85 VDI range. I figured out why! Tantalum is a HIGH TONE! Not a LOW or MID TONE. In fact it sounds like a copper penny or a dime. VDI 81/82 range.
Brandon was playing volleyball in waist deep water, when his ring flew off his finger while hitting the ball. Everyone searched the area by feel and with mask and snorkeling gear, but, it had disappeared. This ring was his Dad’s wedding ring (a large silver claddagh designed one) and was passed down to Brandon when his Dad passed away. An online search brought up TheRingFinders.com website and my contact info. The tide was still rising a bit when I got the call, so, since they were going to stay at the site for a while anyway, I told them I’d come a bit later when the tide was falling. I arrived just before dark and met everyone at their campsite on the beach. After getting the dimensions of the search area, I got to work gridding the bay bottom from the shore out to about waist deep water. A few pieces of junk came to light along with a coin or two, but, no ring. I decided to finish gridding the area by going the other way, so, I went out to waist deep water, working parallel to the shore, and working my way toward the beach. On my second pass, I got a rocking 31 signal on my Equinox and pulled up a big silver ring. It that point, I didn’t have a detailed description of the ring, and this ring was different than any of the other claddagh rings I have found in the past, so, I continued on a bit so I wouldn’t lose my spot in my grid pattern. Once I got a bit closer to shore with the sunlight fading, I walked over to the group and announced that I found a big ring and needed a more detailed description of the one lost. Well, it was a spot on match to the one I found! Brandon was supper happy, and everyone else around their campsite and neighboring sites cheered when the word got out. A pleasure meeting you folks, and thank you for the reward.
