**** Aisha contacted me by cellphone while I was metal detecting on the beach. Her 6 year old daughter had taken mommy’s heirloom ring into the backyard and lost it in the grass. The home was in La Habra with was less than a 45 minute. I met Aisha and her husband, Kobby about an hour before dark.

Sometimes little six year old kids can get confused about where an item like a ring could be lost. We were working towards finding the ring but if it wasn’t there, I could feel eliminate that area. So they could search the other places her daughter had been playing.

I began the grid search under the swings then expanded my area to swing over all the thick grass. The grass was free of metal trash so I

didn’t waist much time checking false signals. Twenty minutes into the search I got a nice gold signal and there was Aisha’s beautiful gold / diamond and blue sapphire ring that her grandmother had worn for years and passed it down to Aisha. ”Irreplaceable “

A happy moment for everyone. We were all relieved to have found it within hours of the loss. They will all sleep well tonight. Many times when a person loses a sentimental ring the memory of the loss haunts them for may years. I always consider this when I am searching for a keepsake. I also have some searches where the ring should be a easy find and it couldn’t be found for one reason or another. I have a few unsuccessful ring searches that haunt me .. That’s just the way it is…

Late Wednesday evening I received a call from Tim who was with his wife, Nicole at one of the beaches in Laguna Beach, CA. His Tungsten wedding ring had come off his finger while sitting around a fire pit on the sand. They heard it hit the side of the cement fire pit.

It was just about a half hour before the beach and the parking lot closed. Except for the possibility of a lot of metal trash in the search area, I felt it was worth a try to attempt a search even if we only had 10 or 15 minutes before the beach closed. 

When I arrive, Tim and Nicole were the only people in the parking lot. We took a few minutes to go over moment of when the ring came off his finger. I turned on my detector, backing off to get a few test swings in before getting in the zone. As I expected there were many ferrous iron signals (mostly nails).  A few more swings of my search coil and I heard a tone with a good ID number that turned up the very sentimental wedding band in my sand scoop.

Nicole broke out in tears and Tim was also very emotional. 

I was glad that I was able to get to the site of the loss before the next morning. This beach is a favorite location for some hobby detectorists to hit before going to work, especially in the summer. I’m sure it would not of been there the next day. Most Detectirist will return sentimental rings, the problem is finding the person who lost the ring.. Maybe someday there will be an app for that..

***Andrew had lost a heirloom gold w/ diamond ring that his father had bought in Hong Kong back in 1935. The Ring had been given to Andrew who has worn it for close to 30 years.

He lost it in the surf at a beach in Dana Point, CA. while throwing a football wading through knee deep water.

It was high tide the next morning when Andrew called me, which could  interfere with being able to find the ring at that time of day. I explained this to him and agreed to meet him to get the best location of the loss. It will be low tide in 4 hours, so this search may have to be postponed until then.

After getting started I told Andrew I could give it a half hour but it looks like I’ll come back at low tide. No need for him to hang around. 

I went out into waist deep surf just to give a quick try. BOOM! Andrews’s ring was in the scoop. First signal and three or four attempts to retrieve it in between waves. I looked up where Andrew was walking off the beach. I got his attention before he drove off. Then we had a great reunion of him with this 84 year family heirloom ring, very special and irreplaceable.

….. I received a call from a guy named Ridge asking for assistance to help him find his platinum wedding band. Yesterday, he had been at Victoria Beach one of many coves in Laguna Beach, CA. When he got home he realized his platinum wedding ring was missing. He thought that it had either come off in the surf or when he brushed the sand off his towel as he was leaving the beach.

He was on his way the next morning to search the dry sand where he had shook off his towel, although the most probable area his loss was the surf where he was most active.

Even though it was high tide and it would not be productive to search the water, I agreed to meet him where I could eliminate the dry sand area. At the same time I could get the location for a return search at the next low tide.

When we walked to the spot where Ridge had shook out his towel, I asked him if he had done any activity on the dry sand that might cause the ring to slip off his finger. He said that the only thing he can think of was brushing off his towel. He pointed up a little higher on the sloping sand. 

I turned on my metal detector making a few adjustments before walking up the embankment. I began a few swings of my detector telling Ridge I need to do a warm up before getting to the zone he was sitting. Boom! I got a signal right away,  10 ft. from where I was to start my search. Yes! The heavy platinum ring was there in my scoop when I retrieved the signal from the sand.

Both of us were surprised as the odds that the ring was lost in the ocean were much higher than it being in the dry sand. It was another time that it paid off just to search the location that was available while we had the time to eliminate part of several places the ring could have been lost. Also, he was a very happy guy, because he had really all but given up hope that a small ring could be found in a mass of sand. I hope I never get tired of helping people find their sentimental keepsakes.

Ed called me from his home in Rancho Cucamonga after losing his ring at a small beach cove in Laguna Beach, CA. He stumbled onto the TheRingFinders website while trying to seek information about renting a metal detector. 

He told me that his wedding ring was in his beach chair and had fallen out as he left the beach. Now he was 60 miles away from the beach.

Knowing this beach very well and I was less than 8 miles away, I told him it would be unnecessary for him to meet me at the location. Such a small beach, I could be there and grid search the whole area in less than an hour. 

It was already dark when I arrived. I went directly to where Ed described he had been earlier that day. A few bottle caps and pull tabs then, BOOM, ED’s Tungsten Wedding Ring in the scoop. I sent a photo of his ring and he was able to pick the ring up at my place before 10 pm.  I love being able to have the time and the equipment to help people like Ed find such sentimental irreplaceable items like wedding rings.

…. Mark was attending a company beach party at Dockwieler State Beach with more than 25 coworkers. They had a friendly volleyball competition where Mark’s gold wedding band flew off his finger. He immediately knew when it came off and it went directly into the sand. 

For the next few hours several of his colleagues tried to find the ring in the sand. Mark did realize that he would have a better chance to find his wedding ring, if he rented a metal detector. Little did he know, this beach is a highly mineralized sand. Most metal detectorists avoid this area like the plaque.

Mark could not find a place to rent a metal detector but he did find my contact information on a google search. After hearing his story, I was able to make sure he could be there when I got to beach. 

The party was still in progress when I arrived. Everyone was excited to see me find the ring that they had attempted to find. Mark showed me where he was standing as he took a powerful swing at the volleyball. There was a lot of frustrating small signals but I was sure the gold ring would be much stronger. After a doing three cross grids two hours had passed. It was dark and all the people had gone home. 

Just Mark and I were the only persons on the beach. This simple search was beginning to look like a “no find”.  As a last resort,  I went 90 degrees from the spot where Mark hit the ball approximately 40 feet outside the right side boundary lines.  My thoughts were if this was unsuccessful,  I would have to go back to my car to get a different detector that might be more efficient in this highly trashy/ mineralized sand. THEN ! Boom, a great signal there in my scoop was Mark’s wedding ring. I found the ring on the first couple passes outside the area where the ring was most unlikely to be.  I did waist some time going over the primary search location three times. Only because it was unstable with a lot of false signals.  We often say, “Don’t Forget To Search Outside the Box.” Lately I have more respect for rings recoveries in volleyball courts. Rings lost playing volleyball can go a lot further and in unpredictable directions.. This was certainly a good example of searching outside the box.

Clem and Denise has been on the beach Saturday night when Denise lost her new IPhone X and an expensive pair of prescription glasses. Clem called me Sunday morning asking for help using my metal detector.

This beach has a very efficient beach cleaning crew, so I was a little concerned that it may be too late.  They are are aware that the beaches are groomed daily. When I discussed that with Clem, he told me that the beach had only raked the upper part of the beach. He also told me that the “Find My Iphone App” was still pinging, which meant the phone was still there. 

That information was good enough for me to get on the road to meet them on the beach. When I got there, Clem had a IPad that gave information the phone was still in the location. He didn’t understand how the app worked, so I told him to walk in the direction of of the blinking icon until his position was over the spot the gps indicated the area of the phone. 

It still took about 20 minutes to find the phone. As a bonus the prescription glasses also showed up. What made this a great recovery was, these large items actually survived the beach rake. Some days the beach crew only rakes the beach and if the rake is not full of trash some items just fall through. Other days the crews run a super sifting machines that can get bottle caps, coins and rings. Every beach city has different schedules and cleaning procedures. 

Denise was ecstatic and happy that her friend Clem had the presence of mind to call me for help. It was definitely a pleasure to help them, I was having second thoughts about searching for a cell phone lost in a high traffic beach goer location. The large phones don’t always hide under the sand.

*** Heather and Justin were at Huntington Beach, CA. for the day with their young daughter. As Heather was packing up their things her platinum diamond wedding rings slipped of her finger falling into the dry sand. 

She and Justin couldn’t find the rings and it was getting late with the chilling wind also frustrating them. Heather called me asking if I was available to help them. Just as I was getting directions to their location. Heather said, “Oh! my husband just found the engagement ring. I will call you back in 20 minutes.”

It was a short phone conversation but I did know what lifeguard tower they were near and that the rings were lost in dry sand. I was sure that they were not going to be able to find the smaller ring with their fingers. I was out doing errands and didn’t want to drive home to wait for a phone call. It was closer to go to the location that Heather gave me. Surely, I would be getting another phone call.

Arriving at the upper parking area at Huntington Beach, I could only see one family walking off the beach pulling a wagon. Heather had not returned a call possibly they had found the other ring and left the beach? I decided to walk down to the beach to do some recreational detecting. That’s what I do most everyday.

Walking down the steps with my detector, I met the couple coming off the beach. The guy pulling the wagon looked straight at me then asked me if I could help them find a wedding ring. I told him,  that’s why I’m here. I am the guy your wife called about an hour ago. Right away Heather started apologizing for not returning the call she promised me. 

We followed the wagon tire tracks back to the place on the beach where the loss occurred. Location and timing made it easy to find the platinum diamond wedding ring with a professional type metal detector. We had Heather’s irreplaceable original wedding band back where it belongs , the one that was put on her finger the day she and Justin got married.

It’s a shame that people walk away from lost keepsakes that can be found by a RingFinder. I can’t tell you how many times I been told, “I Didn’t Know This Service Existed”.. This time my experience with past searches that I would be needed to help find the elusive small ring. It hard to explain, I just had a gut feeling that I should go to the location even though I had not got a return phone call.

***  Jim called me after finding my contact information at TheRingFinders.com metal detecting specialists directory. He had lost a large gold ring that was past down to him by his father. The loss happened earlier in the afternoon while playing a friendly game of football on a grass field in Dana Point, CA.  Jim didn’t feel the ring come off his finger, but he did notice it missing just after the football game.

He and his friends spent several hours searching the 50 x 30 yard grass field. He went to a local sporting goods store purchasing a metal detector that just frustrated him trying to use with so much metal trash in the old park.  It was already dark before he called me, but I agreed to meet him to see the location. The most important factor of most searches is to get the best idea of where the loss happened. It was so late that this search might have to be done the next day when it was daylight. Some public parks have 10pm closing hours.

It was already 9pm before I could begin the search. Jim had been at the park for over ten hours. He said he couldn’t leave knowing the heirloom ring that his dad had given him was in that field. It meant the world to him.

After choosing to start at the most likely end of the grass field, where there was a little lightning, progress was a little slow because of many trash targets. Two hours later, I was getting close to the end of the search zone. I was getting tired and had resorted to only checking the strong signals. It was looking like this search would have to continue tomorrow. It was possible that my grid lines were not straight, the ring could have missed. 

Then I got a strong double signal as my coil passed over a larger non ferrous object. With my high power search light I could see the gold ring in deep grass. I asked Jim to come over to answer a question about where he thought the ring could be. Then I asked him to look down. He blew up with an emotional reaction that is hard to describe. This ring that his father had give him was so important he was willing to do what ever it took to find it.  It took two hours to find finishing at 11pm. Persistence pays off again!

**** Chris and Laura are from Georgia, they had just finished a road trip down the coast of California. Spending  the last day of their trip by enjoying the ocean sitting on the sand at Newport Beach, CA. Their day was upset by the loss of Laura’s platinum with diamonds wedding ring set.

When I received the call I had just finished another ring recovery 20 miles away. They were staying at a hotel very close to the location where they believed the loss occurred. So it helped that they could be there to guide me to the general area.

We began the search just as the sun was setting. They believed the rings were lost about 3pm that afternoon. My concern was they had set up their beach chairs on the wet sand. The rings would not have been buried as easily as if had been soft sand. After three or four hours with many people on the beach, someone could have visually found them.. 

After triple cross gridding and expanding the search area it was dark. I was running out of places to search. Both Chris and Laura were ready to give up. I told them I could not leave with good conscious until I did a couple passes on the upper soft sand. Half way into my second pass I got a strong signal, dug into the sand with my scoop. It was dark so I reached into the sand that was in my scoop and felt a large diamond ring. I knew it had to be one of the rings I was looking for. 

I held the ring up for Chris and Laura to see but they didn’t realize I had found their ring. They still had the sad look , that the rings were lost forever. Then I said out loud, I found the big ring. (2.67ct. Diamond/ platinum ring). It was a priceless moment, I can’t explain with words.

I took a few seconds more to swing the detector over the same area hoping to get the wedding band, no signal. Then I had second thought, I reached into my scoop and there was the wedding band lying flat in the bottom of the scoop. I had dug both at the same time. They had not remembered that they first set on the upper beach for a couple minutes before moving to the wet sand location.

A very happy couple that could finish their special vacation with a happy ending. It was a special search with emotions up and down. It was a pleasure to meet and help both Laura and Chris.
