College Ring

“I lost my ring at the beach and figured it was gone forever but a friend recommended David and he found it in about an hour. I have had my College Ring for over 32 years and it would have been a big loss. I owe David a HUGE Thank You!”

May 2023 – 3 new finds

Sometimes, things are meant to be.Feeling a bit bored, nothing to do, I decided to detect along the beach by Shore Club. But before I got there, I was pointed in the opposite direction by a jet ski operator and lead to a woman who was now walking toward me. Her husband has lost his band a few hours ago, in the sand, under their umbrella. They were leaving Provo the next day.

The more they dug, the deeper the ring went. Right Place, Right Time. Happy ending.

Two days later, I was asked to search for Liam’s ring lost in the water at the Grace Bay Club a few days earlier. They had already left the island. Liam provided me with a photo, a diagram and a video of his path into the water. I found the ring exactly where he indicated. It was returned to him once I got back into the US, one week later. After finding Liam’s ring, I had planned on calling it a day but for some reason decided to keep walking West and wound up at 7 Stars.

I no sooner got in the water when Charles approached me about a ring he’d lost the day before.
He and his wife, Renee, were leaving for the US the next day. Charles pointed to some swimmers and said the ring was lost somewhere “where they are” . Within about 10 minutes, I had found his ring as well. They were especially thrilled because it was Renee’s birthday. I would like to thank each of these people for their generous donations to the Turks & Caicos Reef Fund and to Ashley’s Place!


Welcome to ILMJ

Lost Jewelry. Found Jewelry. That’s what this site is all about. Have you lost a piece of jewelry lately? Maybe I have found it. Look over our current inventory and if you can describe the engraving and other facts about the piece, we’ll return it to you! FREE!

One of my hobbies is metal detecting on beaches and in the ocean in many parts of the world. As a result, I have found many items ranging from generic off-the-shelf wedding rings (with no engraving or ID info) to custom made pendants, rings and other jewelry with unique engravings.

I hope with this website to be able to return these items to their rightful owner if they can identify the location and provide a complete description of the item. Naturally, the customized items will be easiest to confirm ownership; for a generic item a photo will be very helpful. Please help me locate owners of lost items! Share the link with your email & Facebook friends, or link your site to ours !

If you have lost jewelry and would like to see if I have found it, send me an email with a description of the piece, the location of your loss and any other information that could confirm the identity of the piece. Go to our contact page to get in touch with us.
Currently detecting in Turks & Caicos only.
