Marcio was at Ocean Beach with his wife and child having a nice day in the sun when the outlook changed. He had been building sand castles, washed the sand off the toys in the surf, and went in for a short dip. After all this fun, he realized his wedding ring was missing. He […]
Brandon was playing in the shallow surf when the special ring he was wearing, came off an disappeared into the sandy bottom. This nugget ring with 3 diamonds had belonged to his wife’s father, so, it was an irreplaceable family heirloom.

If the sun lotion scenario is the #1 reason for losing a ring at the beach, this is probably #2. It’s the “I took the ring off and put into the chair pocket, forgot it was there, folded chair and packed everything up when we were ready to leave, drove away and then remembered the […]
Rings found at Mission Beach (2017)
Maureen and her two friends were visiting Mission Beach from much hotter Las Vegas, when her engagement and wedding rings ended up in the dry sand. You’ve heard the tail of woe many times before…..blanket, rings removed, sunscreen, forgot, stood up…..rings disappeared from sight. The hardest part about this search was just getting there, finding […]

Thanks Mark!! :) You saved me a lot of money and hassle! (2017)
Shoutout to Mark Rubey!
I had buried my phone and keys in a plastic bag and marked the spot with my towel as I went swimming in the ocean. The hide tide was coming in, and someone moved my towel trying to be nice. When I came out of the water, the tide had already covered the spot where I buried my keys and phone. I was in a panic, since I didn't have any way of getting home without them!
I spent an hour digging around in the sand in the area I thought I buried it, but with the water coming in and no exact idea of where I buried it, I couldn't find them. I gave them up for lost and went home.
When I realized the price of rekeying my car, I knew I had to try again!! I found theringfinders.com the next day via a google search ("how to find keys buried in the sand") and gave Mark a call.
He braved the traffic to come out and help me search bright and early around 8am. I showed him the general area of where I thought I buried it and viola! He was able to do what I could not!
He found my phone and keys in probably under thirty minutes, despite the fact that they had been lost overnight. My phone even still worked! Thanks Mark!! :) You saved me a lot of money and hassle!
thanks for saving our Honeymoon (2016)
Kim and I can’t thank Mark enough! We were on the way back to the rental car after a walk on the beach at night when her wedding ring slid off her finger and fell into the sand. We knew the general area it landed in, and got on our hands and knees and searched for it, but nothing.
Married less than a week earlier, she was obviously distraught and sobbing. A couple of passers by stopped and helped us search in the sand, but no luck. Kim did not want to leave the area, and as Mark mentioned, we stayed overnight in our rental car to make sure no one disturbed the area where we thought the ring fell.
Out of state and not sure what to do, luckily I found Mark’s name and contact info through The Ring Finders website. Waited until the morning to call, and he was at our location within a half hour. Seemingly within minutes, he had found her ring! What a life saver! We cannot thank Mark enough for his help and are so grateful, and cannot recommend him enough if you run into a similar situation. It was great to meet you Mark and talk with you after, thanks for saving our Honeymoon and an irreplaceable ring!
Mark, Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have in my heart... (2015)
Mark, Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have in my heart for the return of my wedding ring. I had nearly lost all hope but decided to give it a shot by contacting you. You were quick to return my call and by sharing your knowledge & experience of beach searches, I started to have a glimmer of hope. You made time for my search that day even though you had already spent most the day in the surf. Your professionalism & experience really showed in the time you spent to get as much detail as possible. I will forever be thankful God blessed me to find you & that through your patience and skill, you were able to return such a sentimental piece of me. Thank you!!!
