Andrew’s mother was very happy to receive this lost 14k white gold heirloom ring on behalf of her son who was beside himself when he lost it.
Andrew’s mother (Ann) contacted me recently in the hopes that a lost 14k white gold heirloom ring could be found. Andrew had lost the ring during an outside gym class session on some practice fields that amounted to the area of about 1-1/2 football fields.
That’s a lot of area to cover when you’re looking for an item about the size of a nickel. Obviously, an area like this is easier to cover and able to be covered very methodically if you can get a couple of people working a grid pattern. I contacted a friend (Travis) and we headed out to try and locate the ring. After about 4-1/2 hours of searching with no ring to show and a storm blowing in we made plans to come back another day to finish covering the area in hopes of being able to reunite the owner with their lost ring.
Andrew was very close with his grandmother and the ring had been passed down to him when his grandmother passed away in December. He wore the ring on his pinky finger to feel close to his grandmother. We knew he was very sad to have lost the ring and that it was such a sentimental item that we were trying to do everything we could to cover the area and locate his missing ring.
We made a return trip to finish covering the area and hopefully recover his missing ring for him. After a little over an hour of searching, we (Travis and I) were able to locate the ring!
We messaged Andrew right away! Unfortunately, Andrew was out of town and was unable to be there for a photo and to take possession of his ring. He did however call his mother, who was more than happy to come down and accept the ring on his behalf! Knowing that there had been more than two dozen people walking around trying to locate the item prior to us searching, and numerous sports practice sessions, Andrew’s mother thought that it was a miracle that we were even able to locate his ring. She had warned him that wearing his grandmother’s ring could result in it being lost, as was the case, but it has now been located and returned to it’s rightful owner! It has been put up so that this sentimental family heirloom will not be lost again. A needle in a haystack really can be found! Another ring returned, another successful search thanks to teamwork, and another happy ending! We were very glad to see the ring turn up and to see it returned!
On a side note Andrew was very glad to have found TheRingFinders service online and says he would recommend the service to anyone!
Another successful return and another happy person!
I Was contacted this afternoon because Elaina could not find her keys that someone had buried on the beach. After arriving at the location and beginning to search she had her keys back in just a few minutes! Also got to clean up the environment a bit. First Target was a fork. Ouch! Glad someone did not step on it. Be careful out there..
Today I had the pleasure of helping Robert find his wedding ring!
Robert had managed to keep track of his gold wedding ring for over 40 years up until the ONE time he decided to do some yard work without wearing his gloves.
Thank you for getting in touch with me Robert, it was very nice to meet you and I’m so happy I was able to help!
It was the last day of the school year when Rochelle lost her wedding ring while her students celebrated with a field day. Students, staff and friends helped search, even with a metal detector, but had no luck. When her husband Steve reached out to me, I was happy to help and drove to Oregon the following day. It took hours of searching in the hot sun, but I’m happy to say that I was able to reunite Rochelle with her ring!
I was fortunate enough to be able to locate and return a pair of beautiful gold and diamond earrings that had been lost while on a walk in Meridian Idaho!
Lost diamond wedding ring that had been in the family for over 100 years has been found in Meridian Idaho and returned to its owner!
Monica was visiting her son in Meridian Idaho when she lost her wedding ring and a pair of earrings she’d placed in a sunglasses case for safe keeping while taking her dog for a walk. The ring had been in the family for over a hundred years, and her sister had even made the drive back to Idaho, rented a metal detector and tried to find it for her. Fortunately after receiving her call, she was able to send me a map of the route she’d taken that day and I was able to start my search. It took two days of searching in rain and snow to find her lost ring, which turned out to be only 20 feet from where I’d been parking. Then as fate would have it, my wife and I had been planning a trip to Utah just a couple weeks later so I was able to deliver the lost ring and meet Monica personally.
So glad I could help Monica! It was so nice to meet you and your family!
Wow!!! Wow!!! Thank you so much theringfinders.com website for directing me to Scott Robbins of https://www.208treasure.com/ . He is located in Nampa, Idaho. On October 18,2020 we had my grandsons wedding in the back yard. It is about an acre. During the festivities my granddaughter lost her diamond earring. Not just any diamond earring but the one she received for completing her Masters degree in Engineering, so it was very, very important. I bought a metal detector, no luck, one of my daughters friends came over, no luck. In desperation I started looking for a professional on the internet. My daughter said “mom no one looks for lost things like this, I said I will find someone!!”
Well Lo and behold I found Scott. He came out the next Saturday morning in the rain mind you, and within 1.5 hours he comes walking in with her earring.
I was so so happy and my granddaughter was beyond tears.
If you need something found this is the person to call.
-Thanks for the kind words Shannon! It was a pleasure getting to meet you, and I’m so glad we were able to get that earring back for your granddaughter!
I received a call Wednesday (6/20/18) from Tim. While doing some yard work and planting some bushes at his home in Botkins Ohio the previous Friday he had realized that he had lost his wedding ring.
His 14k white gold wedding band had been a replacement for a wedding ring that he had lost a few years before. It had always fit a little loose and after planting the first bush he noticed it lying on the ground. He quickly picked it up and placed it back on his finger while thinking to himself that he really needed to get something done about the loose fit to avoid losing it. Minutes later after finishing his yard work he realized he had lost the ring yet again before he made it into the house. He related his story to me telling me that he was fairly confident that he knew a general area where it may have been lost. He was reviewing his options on what he should do. Should I buy a metal detector and try to locate it? Should I try to order a new ring? (Kind of pricey to keep doing that.)
After a few questions I told him that I was fairly confident that it could successfully be recovered and most likely in a very short amount of time. It had to most likely be in the area he thought and right on top of the ground. We made plans to get together Saturday (6/23/18).
Since the area was small and the target should be right on the surface of the ground I thought it might be fun to bring along a second metal detector so that he could try his hand at it as well. I set the detector up for him and after taking a few minutes to show him what a white gold ring would ring up like on the machine and explaining that it should be right on the surface of the ground we were off and looking for his missing ring.
Imagine the surprise when 5 minutes or so later I came back to where he was searching and asked his wife if she could take a picture for me. She kindly replied that she could take a picture for me and then I turned to Tim and asked him if a picture of this would be good.
I gladly held my hand out and handed him back his lost wedding ring!
5-minute hunt… 14k white gold wedding band recovered and returned…. Happy to see the ring returned and another happy ending! So glad to be a part of it!
Sunday Tim was at his soccer match when he removed his wedding band, tied it with a slipknot on to his key lanyard and tossed it onto his gym bag. After his match he went to put his ring on that is when he realised that his ring was not on the lanyard. He spent an hour searching the area visually with no luck. He informed the league hoping someone might find his ring in the latter matches, no luck there either.
Tim found my profile on The Ring Finders and sent me an email. I noticed his email mid morning Monday and called him. We set up a search time a couple hours later.
When I arrived at the park the temperature was nearing 90. Tim led me to the search site, we discussed the events of the night prior, and set a search perimeter. After about a 20 minute search I found Tim’s ring on the very edge off our search perimeter. The XP Deus worked well for this search.
