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.

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!

lost wedding ring Easley SC

Easley SC metal detectorist Allen Carter, cell# (864)535-4347 call or text anytime.

Well when I joined the ring finders I didn’t imagine being called for this type of recovery. A ring that has been lost for over 5 years! With a great idea of the location it should be I set out in the clients backyard to help locate the ring. Unfortunately with it being lost for 5 years I knew I would have to be digging. So every time I came across a good signal that’s what I did. Although it wasn’t the most signals I’ve heard in such a close area, I still did a lot of digging. Finding pieces of tin from the homes construction, pull tab, a quarter, a sprinkler head, and a dog tag. I was getting a little skeptical as most of my signals were similar vdi’s and tones. But when my pinpointer flipped that dirt clump over the gold shone through better then I could believe it would have after 5 years. I’m glad I was able to locate it and it was obvious what it meant for my client to have it returned.

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.

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

Gold Diamond Wedding Band Returned to Owner After Giving Up Hope.

  • from Ponte Vedra Beach (Florida, United States)

On 10/10/22 I was out detecting at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. when I was approached by a lady who asked me mid I had found a gold and diamond wedding band. Shem told me that she had lost her wedding band of 17 years and was heartbroken. She showed me the area where she thought she had lost the ring. I searched for a few hours with no luck finding it. She thanked me for my time and said that she was positive it could not be found since the ring was very small and several days have passed. I asked her for her contact information and told her not to « lose faith » as I have found many rings long after they were lost. I returned to the area the next day and continued my search for her ring which I was so happy to find. I texted the owner a picture of the ring and she called me back crying with tears of joy. It’s such a great feeling to be able to return something so sentimental.  Later that day after returning her ring she sent me a nice testimonial.


Adam, you are my hero! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I just wanted to thank you again. My visit to the beach at our The Lodge & Club on 10/7/22 was one of the worst days because I lost my wedding band.

When I saw you with your metal detector the following Sunday, I had no idea your talent when I approached you to ask if your equipment could find a lost ring. Our conversation gave me a glimmer of hope. When you texted me on Monday 10/10/22 with a picture of my ring, I was literally in tears that you had found my wedding band.

It’s truly a miracle. I am without words that express my gratitude. Adam, you are my hero! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Sincerely Kelly L.

I received a call today from a young lady who was very distraught as she explained to me that last week she lost both of her deceased parents wedding rings which was on a necklace around her neck. She was in her backyard when the chain broke causing both rings to fall to the ground somewhere in her back yard. She and family members searched for a week using metal detectors and probes with no luck.  She works during the day so this backyard search was conducted during the nighttime. After 5 minutes both rings recovered and returned to grateful owner.

From Mombo Beach, Curacao to Denmark, an unexpected return!

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

November 15, 2022
My vacation in Curacao ended with an unexpected ring return. While detecting at Mombo Beach I found an initial ring, my second ring found on the first day in Vacation Land. No one around had lost or knew of anyone losing a ring. Five days later Leighton, my RingFinders traveling companion, was asked to help find a ring that was just lost. Two minutes later he had found and returned the ring. As it usually happens a happy commotion of joy was spread along the beach when a return is made. One of the onlookers, Jordan, was among the onlookers and when he had a chance, he asked Leighton if he had also found an initial ring, he had a picture of. Leighton said no but he took a look at the picture and would ask the other detectorist who was some distance down the beach.

Leighton’s description from the photo he viewed sounded like I had the ring I had found. A walk back to talk with Jordan took a few minutes. When together we were told the story of the ring’s loss and history which verified the ring’s ownership.

Jordan’s girlfriend, Anne, had been swimming when the ring slipped from her finger. The ring was her great-grandfather’s ring with two dates engraved on the inside of the ring and initials for DH on the face of the ring. It was her ring. But she would have to wait until January to wear it again. Anne had returned to The Netherlands and Jordan would not follow until his return in January.

Now back on Cape Cod, I have great memories of a wonderful vacation and an unusual and unexpected return.

Another Successful Ring Recovery in Overland Park, KS

  • from Olathe (Kansas, United States)

High Plains Prospectors was contacted by Zach M. from Overland Park, KS on Friday October 7th, 2022. He reported that a couple weeks ago he was shooting hoops in hid driveway at his home.  When he put up a sweet shot to the basket he felt his wedding band fly off his finger. He heard it bounce on cement a couple times and it flew into the adjacent grass.  He was unsure exactly where it ended up. Zach and his wife looked for the tungsten ring for a number of days, but they did not have any luck in finding it.

We received the call from Zach to assist in the ring recovery effort on Friday afternoon.  Knowing the importance of getting on top of a recovery as quickly as possible, our very own expert metal detectorist, Mike Eiser went out that afternoon to help find the ring.

Mike arrived at Zach’s home a short time after we took the call. The two discussed how and where the ring flew off of his finger.  Mike immediately got to work using his Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector  and Garrett Pro Pointer AT to search the general area of the yard where Zach thought the ring would most likely be.. After about an hour of searching, and no luck, Mike expanded the expected search area and….. »swish »……the ring was found and reunited with Zach!

Congrats on getting the ring back Zach and to Mike for yet another successful ring recovery!
