Jeffrey Levy's Bio

I'm an expert at metal detecting and treasure hunting, having nearly 35 years of field experience. I spend a great deal of time in the Orange County area pursuing my hobby at Huntington, Laguna and Newport Beaches.

I am a member, in good standing, of the West Coast Prospectors and Treasure Hunters Club, Riverside Treasure Hunter’s Club, and the Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club.

I am adept at water and sand recovery, and specialize in recovering precious metal items lost at beaches and lakes during recreational activities in or out of the water. I can search in sunlight or in darkness.

I have also spent several years successfully engaged in finding items such as keys or rings lost at parks or in people’s yards located in the California Coastal Region.

In addition, I bring experience with fire recovery. I assisted Claremont Grand Prix, Laguna Beach and Oakland fire victims in recovering items from the affected areas by using sifting screens and metal detectors.

I have been fortunate enough to find nice things during my long career, and participating in service allows me a means to provide a compassionate service to the distraught.

  • Jeff saved our honeymoon. We will be forever grateful for this moment. (2018)


    My name is Mike, my wife Lisa and I were on our honeymoon when she lost her wedding ring in the surf at Paradise Cove in Malibu Ca yesterday. We searched for hours getting beaten up by the surf and the rocks hopelessly searching and not wanting to give up. After 4 hours with no luck we made contact with the Lifeguard who recommended Jeff from your group The Ring Finders, we’ve never heard of your service but we were willing to do anything to get Lisa’s ring back.

    We made contact with Jeff and he explained the tides in detail to us and told us when to meet him back at the beach approximately 14hrs later during low tide. Jeff showed up, surveyed the area for a few mins then he started searching in a grid pattern pulling up a ton of bottle caps unfortunately. Approximately 15 mins later he found Lisa’s ring buried under a foot of sand already! Our minds were blown!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jeff and his gracious demeanor, Jeff saved our honeymoon. We will be forever grateful for this moment.

  • I highly recommend Jeff, he’s a vacation saver! (2018)


    I take my hat off to Jeff! He saved our vacation to Huntington Beach from Philadelphia. I had taken my ring off at the beach and placed it in a “safe” place so I wouldn’t lose it. Well, as you can see, that didn’t work. I went to our hotel and asked for some help, they sympathized with me and did check to see if they rented metal detecting equipment but they didn’t. The staff was then pointing me towards renting some equipment in the town when suddenly; casually, they pulled out Jeff’s card and gave it to me. I called Jeff; he answered right away and told me he could be there in an hour or so. We meet in the parking lot and within 3 minutes he found the ring. I highly recommend Jeff, he’s a vacation saver!

  • Thank you Jeff... thank you Ring Finders. (2017)


    My wedding ring, which had been passed down through four generations of men in my family and had stayed on my own finger for over twenty-two years, decided to slip off of my finger and into the sand of Zuma beach last Saturday night.

    We thought that all hope was lost but luckily I found TheRingFinders site late that evening and first thing the next morning I was in contact with Jeff Levy. After listening carefully to my story and assessing the situation Jeff made arrangements to meet at the spot were I thought the ring might be.

    I marked off what seamed to be an impossibly large search area and stood back to watch while Jeff went to work. Jeff’s confidence was infectious. Even as rusty nails and old springs were pulled from the sand I could feel that it was just a matter of time before my ring would make its location known.

    Jeff made one full pass down the thirty by ten yard stretch of sand, which I had cordoned off, and was a third of the way back when something grabbed his attention. He waved his detector back and forth isolating one particular spot then he scooped his sifter deep into the sand. Two quick shakes and the lovely sound of clinking gold rang through the air. There it was in all its glory!

    My great grandfather‘s ring returned so that it my bless the union of another generation.

    Thank you Jeff... thank you Ring Finders.

    You shall remain in our family lore from this day on.

  • Simply amazing! We are forever grateful for Jeff's services." (2017)


    "I called Jeff on Thursday afternoon after I had lost my rings on Monday morning at Capistrano Beach. He and I discussed the location and his schedule.

    He called me back later that night and let me know that he had rearranged his schedule so he could meet me at 7am at Capistrano Beach.

    On Friday morning, he left Claremont at 4:30am to arrive at Capistrano Beach by 6:15am. When my husband and I, plus our 2 children arrived at 7am, he had already found the ring. Simply amazing! We are forever grateful for Jeff's services."

  • Finding my ring was a miracle and I am so grateful that Jeff and the ring finders came to my rescue. (2016)


    I received the most meaningful gift, a promise ring, from my boyfriend around Christmas time. What should have been the most happiest time of the year turned into the most tragic event that could ever happen. I lost my ring in my horse's stall. Trying to find my ring was like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. I was so disappointed and heartbroken that my ring was gone. I tried to do everything I could to find the ring before my boyfriend figured out I lost it. My mother came upon the ring finders and found Jeffery Levy close by. He immediately came over the next day after Christmas. Jeff found my ring within a half an hour. Finding my ring was a miracle and I am so grateful that Jeff and the ring finders came to my rescue. Thank you for relieving my worries ring finders.
