What is it about Stinson Beach in Marin County? Why are so many rings lost there? We got a call today from Lindsey, who had driven over from Sacramento with her daughter to beat the summer heat. She took off her wedding ring to apply sunscreen, then walked over to her daughter to apply more…and the sand swallowed up her ring. After looking for it everywhere, she used her smartphone to search for metal detector rentals in the San Francisco Bay Area. That’s when she found us.
It took us a few hours to make it to Stinson Beach because of the rush hour traffic. Once we arrived, Lindsey showed us where she had lost her wedding ring, and we immediately knew that we would be able to find it for her. Why? Because she had been sitting under her umbrella when she lost it, and she had not moved the umbrella. It was like a pin stuck to the beach saying “Lost Ring Right Here!”
The hunt itself took just ten minutes with our metal detectors. It’s a good thing Lindsey knew exactly where to look-her ring is quite petite, and such a small ring could be hard to find if the search area is large.
So the moral of the story is, if you lose your ring or other jewelry, stop and mark the location, then call TheRingFinders!
