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!

Wedding ring lost in the bay, Beach Haven NJ, LBI, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

  I received a message from Yvonne asking if I would be able to get her husbands wedding ring out of the bay. It slipped off his finger getting out of their boat the night before. I was a bit worried about the water depth, knowing how much tide there is on the bay side of LBI, also how much mud was on the bottom, which always is a huge factor with water recoveries. They had returned home and explained that whatever worked best for me to have at it. I was able to go the following afternoon when the conditions were perfect. Luckily there was a dock ladder, because it was about 6′ down to the water, and  around 5′ deep, also there  was about 4″ of mud, so I was just able to maneuver with the water depth, but was still able to get the ring in my scoop within 30 minutes. The ring was returned about a week later, unfortunately I never got a chance to meet Alex or Yvonne, when Alex picked up the ring, I was in the water working on another successful recovery.

Lost wedding ring on the beach, Ship Bottom NJ, LBI, recovered by Edward Trapper, NJ Ring Finder

  • from Seaside Park (New Jersey, United States)

  Lydia sent me a message asking if I would be able to help find her husbands wedding ring that was lost in the ocean he day before. She explained the details and we set up a time to meet on the beach. After I arrived I found out some more interesting details, one being, they marked the area with an umbrella pole the day before, which was FANTASTIC due to the huge beach, the other, they had searched for quite some time with a metal detector and had no luck. Jeff was tossing a ball when his ring slipped off into the water, which was quite rough due to the storms offshore. With the waves breaking right around knee deep, I found the ring very close to the spot marked with the umbrella pole. Remarkable, nobody touched it over 24 hours later.

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, 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.
