Heirloom Platinum Wedding Ring Recovered in Huntington Beach

  • from Sunset Beach (California, United States)


I received a call from a very distraught Simona who told me she dropped her Platinum Diamond Ring in the sand in Huntington Beach. She told me it was her Grandmother’s Ring from the 1940’s

I arrived in about twenty minutes and met her on the beach. Simona told me she was visiting from Texas and she showed me the area where the ring was dropped.

I turned on my metal detector and the very first target I heard was promising, I looked down and could see a small sliver of a shiny ring. I showed Simona and she reached down and plucked her ring out of the sand.

Ring lost in San Diego park found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Bon was playing volleyball at a local park and decided to put his wedding ring in his pocket instead of wearing it. At a certain point after jumping and chasing the ball during a typical game, he checked his pocket and found the ring missing. This wasn’t his first experience with losing this ring, so, he knew who to call…. a Ring Finder. I was out detecting myself, but, quite a ways away when he called. I got to the park just before sunset and started my search in some fairly tall, unmowed grass. Bon was uncertain as to what metal his ring was made of, but, that he thought it was silver. I ran a grid pattern looking for a shallow high conductor, but, nothing of that sort was found. After expanding the search area a bit and still no ring, I went back to the main volleyball court and started checking for ANY shallow target with a good solid sound.  It was getting dark and cold, but, after a couple of passes I got a nice low tone in the U.S. nickel range that was right on top of the ground, but, under a few inches of grass. A probe with the pin pointer and sure enough, it was his ring. We were both happy to leave the park and go home to a warm house and hot meal.

Lost Keys off Highway 830 Strathcona County, Alberta.

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)

Derek called asking if I was able to help him locate his lost keys in the ditch.  Derek, unfortunately, ended up in the ditch after hitting a patch of ice on the highway, his truck rolled and all the contents were thrown out into the snow,

I met up with Derek on the side of the highway and he told me he had searched the spot a few times with no luck! Within ten minute I found his keys not far from where he had being searching.

Luckily Derek got out unscathed but his truck did not.

Wedding Band Lost, Recovered and Returned in Wayne, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received a call from Jeremy from Wayne, PA today. It turns out I successfully recovered his friends lost wedding band several years ago…and he was told to look me up in The Ring Finders directory. Once he tracked down my contact info he shared with me that he lost his titanium wedding band in his front or backyard while walking the dog the evening before. He spent some time looking for it himself but no luck. I met him at his home later that same day and he walked me through where he believed the ring most likely fell off while he was walking the dog. I’ve learned to prioritize search areas to maximize my success and it was clear to me it was most likely lost in front yard among tall grass and leaves. Rings on the surface have a unique signal on my metal detector so while I was registering quite a few signals they were all deep and and most likely trash. On my 3rd or 4th pass I finally got the signal I was hoping for…looked down…and I could immediately see his huge silver colored wedding band! I was very happy to be able to return Jeremy’s ring to him!

Newlywed’s White Gold Band Lost, Recovered and Returned in Norwood, PA!

  • from Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, United States)

Received a call from Debra from Norwood, PA regarding her husband’s lost white gold wedding band. She found me in The Ring Finders directory and shared with me that her husband, Lenny, lost his beautiful white gold wedding band during a New Years celebration the previous week. The details were a little fuzzy because the loss occurred deep into New Years eve and as expected both Debra and Lenny were celebrating quite vigorously. Basically at some point during the evening Lenny found himself out in their small grassy side yard…and soon thereafter noticed his ring missing off his finger. They spent quite a bit of time searching on their hands and knees the following day with no luck. When I arrived to assist in the search a few days later Lenny told me he was convinced it came off in the small grassy side yard. It was a very small search area…maybe 10×20 feet of grass. I booted up my machine and started scanning the area….was getting constant signals from deeper trash metal…but kept scanning looking for that very unique surface gold ring signal. 3 minutes into the search in an area of deep grass I got the signal I was hoping for….with Debra and Lenny looking on….I bent over and picked up a beautiful white gold wedding band! Was very happy to be able to return the ring to them…they were only 3 months into their marriage!

Hannah lost her rose gold diamond ring in the back yard of her boyfriend, Bradley’s house. I received a call from Bradley, but a 3 week trip delayed the hunt. While he was waiting, he borrowed and rented detectors and attempted to find the ring. No luck. When I returned from my trip, I headed out to find the still-lost ring. Carrie was busy but I still brought her equipment. The search area was not large but contained a lot of coins and buried metal. That along with no published data on rose gold discrimination numbers created a lot of “false finds”. After Bradley and I covering the area without locating the ring, (Carrie’s equipment was put to good use) we started a sectioned, crawling, pin pointer search (I made this term up). On the last section I looked in an area we had not included in the original search. There, in the shade of a neighbor’s building, was the ring sitting on bare dirt, fully visible. Sometimes being lucky is better than being good. We reunited Hannah with her ring and got a load of pictures. Carrie regrets not being there for the successful hunt.

Thank you, Bradley and Hannah for the generous reward.

I asked her what had happened, she said it was New Year’s Eve and there were some things that had happened, off came the ring and thrown…… I searched half the yard and went back over it twice…… I said to myself it has to be in the bushes……..  I came back around the bushes and it had dropped out of the bushes…….  I then asked her if she thought it would be anywhere else she turned away and (I pulled a Chris Turner) I held up her ring and when she turned around she instantly froze and said really!!!!!! A big hug followed and she said thank you so much…..thanks for calling so soon KARA……..  KARA DIDNT want her picture taken so I asked to take a picture of me holding her ring……

Lost Wedding Ring in Iowa Snow

  • from Waverly (Iowa, United States)

I received a message from a young man who said his wife had lost her wedding ring. As the story goes, she was outside at night with their dog standing on the deck and the ring came up missing. They were not sure if she lost it playing with the dog or when exactly she lost it. By chance, her friend was there and was videoing their interaction and at one point, the wife was standing at the top of the steps, facing the yard, swinging her arms. When her arm was back, the ring was on her finger and the next time it was not. I must say this is the first for me that they actually had the losing of the ring on video. There was snow in the yard and they frantically searched but the temperatures were below freezing and the husband had to force the wife to give up for the night and come inside. For the next week they would go in the yard and search but to compound to the problem was 4″ of  new snow and then the temperatures warmed just enough to melt some and refreeze.

We made an appointment for the next Saturday and I went to their home. He took me through the story and showed me where it had happened. I got my equipment   and set the sensitivity way down and the discrimination to the max. I took 3 steps off the deck and got a signal and told the husband who was helping that this would be a good place to look. He got down and started digging in the snow and ice but did not come up with anything. I got my pin pointer and pointed to where it should be and he took another brush of snow and there was silver shining through. It never gets old seeing the sheer joy on their face and feeling the burden being lifted off their shoulders. It is something that is hard to describe. The next task was to get a little torch because it was frozen in ice and snow. We heated it oh so gently and pulled it from its frozen grave. They were both very appreciative and reward me nicely for coming to their rescue.

Pendants lost at South Mission Bay Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

Danielle was playing with a puppy who came up to her on the beach, when the dog snagged her necklace breaking it. She had two pendants on that chain fall off into the dry sand. The next day I was contacted by Danielle after she found my phone number on The Ring Finders website. We made arrangements to meet that afternoon to define the search area and get the particulars on how they were lost and what I would be looking for. It sounded like a nice easy one for a change….wrong.  We met at the site, and as luck would have it, a group of people were camped in and on the edge of the search area. Since I was looking for both a small silver pendant and larger gold one (one that had belonged to her grandmother), every non-ferrous target would have to be scooped so nothing was missed. Good thing they weren’t made of steel, as the place is paved with nails and other ferrous fire ring debris. I gridded the entire area that I could without having to displace the folks that were camped there, but, couldn’t find either pendant. The people camped there were curious as to what I was looking for, and were nice enough to move some of their gear so I could expand the search area a bit into where they were set up. Still nothing.  We figured, as unlikely as it was, that someone must have spotted them and picked them up since the time they were lost. I asked Danielle to send me any photos she may have of the two pendants and I’d keep them on file in case I ran across someone who may have detected that area and found them. It was a nice day and I decided to stay and detect for a while. I went up the beach an eighth of a mile or so and worked my way back hoping by the end of the afternoon everyone would be gone and I’d have the whole area to myself. I made it back to the original search area just before sunset, everyone was gone, and I completely gridded the area where I couldn’t search earlier. Sure enough, just slightly out of the search area where the previous folks had parked their wagon (which we hadn’t moved), I got a signal that turned out to be the silver pendant. A careful search of the surrounding sand and the gold pendant’s weak low tone signal came through the nail and junk infested site and into my headphones. Danielle was very happy to get her family heirloom back again. A pleasure to meet you and thanks for the reward.

Mobile Metal Detecting Service ready and able to help you now.. “I WILL TRY ANYWHERE “ … Call or Text Adam 714-785-5111
I received a call last night from a woman who just got married on the beach. You know the traditional old saying “Something new, something borrowed, something blue and a Sixpence in your shoe”. Things a bride should have on them during their wedding for good luck. It turns out the the Sixpence has been in her family for decades and several family members have been married with this exact Sixpence. Since the ceremony was on the beach she was wearing sandals so she places the heirloom sixpence in her dress. After the wedding she noticed the sixpence was missing. She did a google search for metal detector specialist and contacted me. I met her early the next morning and searched the wedding location. Heirloom sixpence recovered and returned to owner. Family crises averted. 🙌🏻 #LostRingFlorida #MetalDetecting #LostRingJacksonville #MetalDetectorRental #RingFinderJacksonville #RingfinderFlorida #RingFinderPonteVedraBeach
