I Received a call from Bob’s wife saying he lost his wedding ring in the yard. I talked to Bob’s wife and she said he lost it in the yard working last Friday….. When I get there Bob comes outside and said he was blowing leaves in the front yard. So I looked in the front flower beds and nothing. Now the front yard still nothing…. Off to the back yard and searched were he said he was but searched outside outside the area he said still nothing…. I move towards the burn pile in the picture…. I heard a told that I didn’t hear before, turned on the trusty pinpointer and guess what was just below the dirt line…. I picked up,his ring didn’t say anything and when he turned around he couldn’t believe it was in the burn pile…. Bob was really happy to have his ring back on his finger…
Received a text from Marc to say his Wife Mona lost her wedding band in their backyard in downtown Toronto.
Mona was throwing out her coffee press grinds in the backyard and put her left hand in to clear the remaining grinds.
Unfortunately, Mona’s gold replacement wedding band flew off her finger. She heard a ping and concluded the ring landed somewhere in the leaves.
The registered Toronto ring finder was not available and I was happy to fill in.
Mona and Marc had recently viewed the Toronto CityTV news segment by Audra Brown on TheRingFinders and felt they had hope!
When I arrived, I took my gear into the backyard and while entering the backyard, low and behold I spotted the gold wedding ring immediately laying flat between the black stones!
I proceeded to do the interview then immediately surprise Mona with her beautiful Cartier 18k gold Love Ring! It was priceless! My record to recover a ring was 14 seconds! Not sure how I’ll beat this record!
Check out the video of the ring recovery;
Thank you so very much Mona and Marc for your very generous donation the the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!
Three to four months ago Liz was throwing out a rotten jalapeño pepper over a fence into 15’ high thick cedar bushes. She watched her silver and gold ring fly off her hand in the same general direction. Liz searched for days and a few months and wasn’t successful in finding her ring.
Liz purchased her ring while visiting Portugal ti attend her Grandmother’s 100 Birthday 7 years ago! So the ring had special meaning to her.
Two weeks ago Liz and her Husband were watching Toronto CityTV news reporter Audra Brown’s segment on the global organization called “The Ting Finders”. The showed a couple of my ring recoveries and the charity aspect! Liz’s Husband said, this is for you!
After initial contact, I made arrangements to visit Liz in the small town of Bolton early Saturday morning!
Liz had shown me the area she threw the rotten jalapeño pepper and had cut back a number of lower cedar branches to get better access. Liz also mentioned that the silver ring was quite large, heavy and very loose on her finger!
My first thought was the trajectory of the rings path because of the weight. My second thought was the ring could be stuck up in the crooks of the upper branches.
First pass on her side of the cedars was unsuccessful which took approximately 20 minutes. I then proceeded down the back side of the cedars which was on her neighbours property and BINGO!! I heard the high tone of sweet silver! Looked down and saw the rim!
I walked back to the other side and surprised Liz immediately compared to my usual slightly drawn out way!
Check out the video of the surprise!
Thank you Liz for calling upon me to help and for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! Thanks to Audra Brown’s CityTV news segment on “The Ring Finders” we were able to save Liz’s sentimental silver and gold ring!
I was initially contacted by Shenna well over a month ago. She left me a voicemail stating that she was certain she lost her ring in her back yard a few weeks prior and after visually searching for it several times, she was unable to locate it. Unfortunately, I was in the hospital at the time recovering from an appendectomy with some complications. I replied to Shenna and informed her of my situation and long story short, she was willing to wait until I was fully recovered to make arrangements to locate her ring.
I’m happy to inform you that today was the day that we agreed upon for me to come out and attempt to locate her lost ring. Shenna showed me where she thought she might have lost it while working in her beautiful garden. Once our conversation was over, I quickly got to work and within less than 5 minutes! Can you see it there hiding in the grass/straw???
Needless to say, Shenna was both amazed and grateful that her engagement was finally back where it belongs! Look at that great smile! A perfect ending to the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Received a message from Derrick about a lost ring over the edge of a hill…. Derick had stated he was throwing leaves over the side of a hill right next to his driveway……. I asked him wat he was doing again and he said he was tossing leaves over the side…… I said ok let’s get started……. Derrick showed me two areas were it mite have come off, then he told me he was afraid it mite have rolled down the hill a ways……… So I started and second hit was a sweet signal……. I reached down to pick the ring up and Derricks daughter was watching and I swiped it off he ground…. She didn’t see me do it and so I asked him if he’s 100% it came off right here he said it was……. So I checked just under the leaves and their it was,,,,,,, thanks for getting ahold of me Derrick……..
John reached out to me after finding me in the Ring Finder directory. He was looking for help in finding his 60 year old gold signet ring that came up missing at his Wallingford, PA home after a day raking leaves. After considering buying or renting a detector himself he decided to hire a pro instead. I met John at his home the next day and he shared the details of where he was working in his yard. After a quick demonstration of my machine to prove to him I would not miss his ring if I scan over it…I went to work. He thought the ring most likely fell off in the front yard…so I started my search there…no luck. Off to the back yard we went…still no luck. Ok…time to step up my game! Back to the front yard with an expanded search…BOOM! I got that glorious gold surface tone in my headphones…I look down and there was his beautiful, massive gold ring! I called out to John who was sitting nearby…I was so happy to see the big smile on his face when he saw his ring in my hand!
Samantha messaged me last night about her ring that flew off her daughter, Johanna’s finger while she was playing in the front yard. It was her grandmothers ring and had great sentimental value to her. I had already went to bed, but my auto message prompted her to call. After getting the details it was pretty apparent the ring had slid off her daughters finger when she threw her hands in the air. We didn’t know how far it flew, but knew positively, it was in the grass, someplace in the front yard. I met her right after she got off work to start the search. When I pulled up I didn’t like what I saw. It was an underground electric transformer box right on the corner of the property. If you know metal detectors the EMI interference from them can sometimes make the search impossible. I didn’t let her know this, and adjusted my machine to the conditions. Not 10 minutes later the machine gave the sweet sound of a platinum ring under the coil. I felt around with my pin pointer, as the grass was deep, and it was pushed into the dirt a bit from the family searching the day before. When I spotted the ring, I held the pointer on it to let it keep screaming, and looked over to her with a big smile on my face. She ran over in total amazement, with a priceless look on her face. The next 15 minutes are what makes this hobby so special, it was very sentimental moment.#njringfinder, #lostring,#lostcross,#lavallettenj,#ortleybeachnj,#lostringLBI,#lostringholgatenj,#lostringsurfcitynj,#lostringlongbranchnj,#lostringbradleybeachnj,
Mariam recently came to the U.S. to study at the university level in Minnnesota. While enjoying a day at a local fall festival with friends, Mariam lost a ring that her Mother gave to her just before leaving for America. The white gold ring was designed as a Mother/Daughter ring to help Mariam feel close to home while away. She rented a metal detector and searched for 3 hours only finding a few coins. While searching the internet for help, Mariam came across theringfinders.com and called me right away. I met her out at the festival the next morning and she pointed out the area she believed the lost ring would be. It only took about 10 seconds, my first hit and I found the beautiful double heart diamond filled mother daughter ring. Congrats Mariam, so glad I could help.
While detecting a local park, I found a 2018 Grad Ring. It had a date, the school initials, a first name and initials. I called the ring company and the school and neither were able to help. In the end, I connected with some students that attended the school at that time and was able to find out who the ring belonged to and in turn, I was able to contact her through Facebook. Here is that return video.
