I have returned over 35 gold class rings and 2 sterling ID bracelets that I found on my own. I have also been hired by numerous people to find their lost rings and have a supurb success rate. Twice I was featured on Fox 2 News Detroit, and I also have been featured in 7 different newspapers.
University of Maryland Class ring of 1954. Found the owner 54 years after they lost it. It was an used as an engagement ring for girlfriend and it fell off her finger. They are still married.
High School Championship Ring
This ring was found in a lake in Oakland county. It is a high school championship ring. This is George Romney's grandson and Mitt Romney's nephew. He lost it water skiing. I found it in almost 20' of water and it took a few weeks to find him. I had plenty of help from the school. He flew here from Utah with his family to pick it up in person.
Graduated from the acadamy in 1946 as a bomber pilot. He flew B-47 bombers and died in 2001. It took over three years to find this family in South Carolina. Ring was sent to his son who was also a pilot in the USAF with the same name. No idea how it came to be lost in Michigan.
WWII ID Bracelet
I was able to track the family down in Virginia. He had died but I sent it to his son. Again no idea how it became lost in a lake in Michigan. Another story I will never know.
Got a call from a gentleman that lost a family heirloom ring two years ago in a boat slip. He was working on the boat and went to brush sawdust off his clothes. The ring flew off his finger, hit the side of the boat and went into the slip. I met him and went in. The first 4 signals were snaps for a boat cover. The 5th was the ring dated 1912. He was elated to have it back.
Received a call about a wedding set at a marina. The lady was helping her husband put the tarp on the boat and her ring slipped off and went into the boat well. I was already at the marina when they called so I waited 10 minutes for her to arrive. She showed me where it went in approximately. Took me about 5 minutes to locate it with the detector.
