*** I received a call from Taylor, who had lost a thin silver necklace in the dry sand at a small cove in Laguna Beach, CA. The first thing I noticed was my caller ID indicated that I had recovered a Cartier ring for her last year.

It was like talking to an old friend. She said, she was at Table Rock Beach Cove in South Laguna.  She had placed her thin silver necklace on the towel while she wet for a swim. Her friend picked up the towel not knowing the chain was there. They could not find the necklace even though it was in a 10’x10’ area.

I met them at Table Rock Beach after driving 10 miles. It was a bit of a walk down a couple hundred steps down to the sand. Because the chain was very thin and it had a very small pendant. I brought two detectors and a special sand rake that I use for small items that can’t be detected. No way was I willing to hike back up the 200 plus steps to get other equipment.

Taylor and her friend showed me the spot they were guarding. I set up my Equinox 800. A few swings later I got a faint signal but the iD reading was stable at a #3. It just slipped through my sand scoop so, I reached into the sand with my hands. The tiny thin necklace was in my hand and it was barely visible.  Successful search with Taylor and her friend happy they took the time to call for help.

*** Omar had been walking his dog at Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach, CA. He was in ankle beep water when his dog got excited as another dog got close to them. In the strugglers control his dog, his gold wedding ring came off his finger disappearing intel the surf. 

Four days after the loss Omar came across my contact information on TheRingFinders website. He was unable to meet me at the location but his screen shot of the larva was clear enough for me the do a search. I was able to do a two hour grid of the beach the next morning. The ring didn’t show. 

When I reviewed the screen shot photo, I realized I had searched the wrong location. This wasn’t the first time. It’s always preferable to have the person meet me at the location. Many times it’s not convenient for the person who lost the item to get free from other obligations.

When I returned to the correct area at the next morning’s low tide, I was able to find the ring after about a half hour into my grid search. I sent Omar a text with a photo of his ring. He met me an hour later so we could get the ring back where it belongs. He was amazed and promised to get the ring resized.

… Dave and his family are from Minnesota visiting his sister Sarah. They were out here celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. Three days before returning home they went to Crystal Cove State Beach, just up the coast from Laguna Beach, CA. There day was up set when Dave got knocked down by a wave, losing his custom made gold and diamond wedding ring that he had worn for 20 years.

I was contacted by a text from Sarah three days later at 6:30pm Sunday evening. We only communicated by text. She told me what had happened. The time that it happened and sent me a couple photos. I know that beach well, so I was confident that I could get to the general area without her driving 35 miles to point out the site.

I checked the tides when the loss occurred and the next best low tide. I would not be able to talk to Dave because he was on an airplane returning home. This was worth a gamble. I set my alarm for 4:30am so I could catch the next low tide. If I didn’t find the ring, I could talk to Dave getting more details from the person who lost the ring.

After about an hour and half, I got a faint signal in black wet sand. I very seldom discriminate while doing a ring search, so I dug the signal. YEP .. there in the pile of sand was a gold ring with diamonds. It had to be Dave’s ring.. 

Later that morning I contacted Sarah with the good new including a photo of the ring.. She was able to pick it up that afternoon. That night I received a FaceTime call from Dave , thanking me for finding his wedding ring of 20 years. We talked for 20 minutes. He told me the story of how he and his wife designed two matching rings for their wedding. I also got a call from his aunt telling me how grateful everyone was that the ring had been recovered.

It was another happy day for all concerned. I know that these rings lost in the surf are not always easy to find. This one may not have been detectable if we waited one more day. Sand moves every tide on these beaches and we have six foot tide changes.

**** Kelly call me to inquire if I could help her find a small white gold earring in the sand at a small cove in Laguna Beach, CA. She was sure that it had to be near where she and her girl friends had spent the day. 

She couldn’t meet me at the location until after her last class at school which would be the next day at 6pm. We discussed the location a little bit more and she sent me a photo . After recognizing the lifeguard tower in the back ground, I felt I would not need her to come to beach. 

The next morning I was at the West St. Beach in South Laguna. Kelly had told me that the earring was a small hoop type white gold item. So I took two metal detectors down the long set of steps . Immediately I spotted the landmarks. Also, I could see finger drag marks in the sand. 

Thought this would be a easy find. My first double grid over the zone with my multi frequency detector did not reveal the earring. I took a few minutes to set up my other detector which I could use at a higher frequency setting. “BOOM” .. a couple swings got me a decent signal. The white gold earring was found. It was open and possibly on edge ? Can’t really say why I missed it with my other detector, because it is also know for finding small nonferrous metals.

The most important fact is this very sentimental piece of jewelry was found and returned to Kelly later in the evening. A very happy grateful young lady.

*** Gene and his wife went to his daughter’s outdoor birthday party. In Brentwood which is a city in Los Angeles, CA. The party was a few blocks away from his house. After returning home that same evening his wife realized he very favorite and most sentimental diamond/ gold earring was missing. 

He thought that he might try renting a metal detector to find it on his own. Doing his research Gene came across TheRingFinders directory. He called me with a few questions about the service works. He told me that the earring had to be at his home, in the car or at the home where they spent most the evening on the lawn near the pool.

I briefed him on the experience I have recovering lost metallic items. From what he told me, there were several places I could use my metal detector and I have a couple other tools that enable me to search inside cars. I definitely could help eliminate areas that may hide a small  earring. 

We met that afternoon at his place. He asked if I would like to search the car first. I felt we should start where she had spent the most time. That would be the lawn area a quarter mile down the road. He had brought the matching earring so I could use it to set up my metal detector..The grass could be a great hiding place for a small gold diamond earring. The yard wasn’t very large so I began my search at the far end. 

Gene got a little nervous when he could hear my detector sound give a signal. I had to explain that this is why people get frustrated when they have never used a metal detector. He was sitting close to me when I got a surface pull tab signal. I called it and was able to show him how the ID numbers and the tone of the signal work. Shortly after that I got two different signals. I told him one was probably another pull tab but the other could be a small gold item. “ Boom” I checked the second signal and could see the diamonds and gold deep in the grass.

Normally I don’t call signals before I check them, because I’m usually wrong. Gene went ballistic bursting out with the words I hear often, “I DON’T BELIEVE IT”. He had to tell me that he never thought the earring could be found. That is something I also hear often. I believe you can’t find it if you don’t try!! I’ve seen miracles!!

*** Ronald lost his IPhone in the sand at Victoria Beach one of the small coves that is in the city of Laguna Beach, CA. He wasn’t sure where the phone was lost until he got home where he could set up his find my phone app on his computer. 

He found my contact information on a google search for a metal detector. When Ronald talked to me he said the app was showing the phone at Victoria Beach near the volleyball courts. It still had 5% battery left so it had not been picked up. 

The call came to me about 10:30am that morning. I left immediately and was at the location 10 miles away shortly after the call. The grid search area was fairly clear as not too many beach goers on the sand. In less than a half hour I was able to locate Ronald’s iPhone. 

He picked it up later that afternoon and was totally elated, thanking me several times. He was also  happy that we were able to set this up without him having to drive to the location. It’s always better to have a person present to help zero in on the location, but in this case he couldn’t be there.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in a Plush Deep Pile Carpet .. Beverly Hills, CA. .. Recovered

*** I got a call asking if I could help find a small white gold stud earring lost inside a home. Maybe she read my moto “I Will Try Anywhere”. It seems Brittney knocked her stud earring off a table into a thick deep pile of a plush carpet . This wasn’t the first time a diamond stud earring disappeared in this same rug. She was able to contact me after a google search on the internet.

We discussed the situation and made arrangements for me to meet at the apartment in Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles, CA. When I arrived, I was surprised that it was a 30 story building. There was only valet parking. I was on the guest list and they escorted me to one of the upper units. This is a lot different from finding rings lost in the sand at the beach.

Brittney was frustrated that she couldn’t find this small stud earring in the thick pile plush carpet. It was a replacement fir one that had been lost just a couple months before. I had told her before I came that I couldn’t use my large detectors inside. The two pinpointers I brought could get a signal but only within 1 inch of the earring.  The big disappointment was that there was metal in the floor that made the hand held pinpointer metal detector give false signals.

On to plan “B” , I had a large MagnifyGlass actually a iPad Using a magnifying app and bright lights. So I began hand searching the thick carpet. After awhile, I went to plan “C”. It was a large removable carpet ( 12’x 20’). We were able to pick up one side enough to use the pinpointer ( away from the metal interference in the floor) . Probably only 7 or 8 feet from one end of the rug. While we were doing that task, we shook the rug. After putting the rug back in place.

The diamond stud earring had fallen out out he depths of the fabric to the surface. It was visually seen on top of the fibers in the white carpet. Successful recovery that took more than an hour and a half. Brittney was more than ecstatic, happy to this special gift back where it belongs. This could have very well been vacuumed up or stuck in this carpet forever.

**** Matt called me from San Clemente State Beach. His wife Sasha had been holding his platinum wedding ring while he went swimming in the ocean. She was sitting on their beach blanket so she believed the ring was safe so she just slipped on one of her fingers. 

Sometime later Sasha just made a quick gesture with her hand and the ring flew into the dry sand. She panicked a began to search the sand. Then Matt joined in on the search when he returned from his swim. A couple other people on the beach offered to help but the ring could not be found. 

One of the beach maintenance personnel brought them a rake to use for the search. He also suggested that Matt try google searching TheRingFinders. Matt was able to get my contact information and called right away. We arranged for me to meet him on the beach an hour later.

I actually was there 15 minutes earlier. I know the beach well which made it easy to find where they were located. Matt told me how the ring was lost, pointing to a 20 square foot area where the ring should be. It was such a small spot and the sand was raked flat. It only took a few minutes to find his wedding ring. We like the easy finds ! They are easy because I can get to the location promptly. So many time people can’t find my service till they leave the area of the loss.

Sasha was totally relieved of her guilt for feeling responsible for losing the ring. Matt was proud that he took the suggestion to call a member of TheRingFinders. A very happy couple could return to their hotel this night for a peaceful sleep. The next morning they were flying home to Texas.

*** Grae was teaching his son to boggie board in the surf at a SoCal Beach. After walking out of the surf he noticed his palladium wedding ring was no longer on his finger. He was sure it was on his finger before entering the ocean. 

He texted me four days after the loss because he had not known this service existed. We were later able to discuss some of the details of his loss on a phone call. His first question was how does this work? This is the most common question. 

I explained that, if the ring was lost at a higher tide, we have a chance to recover the ring at the lower tides. All dependent on how much sand movement occurs over the next few days. I do need a general idea of where on the beach he was located. 

Grae gave me landmarks approximately 100 yards apart. The next morning I was able to get to the beach at a 4am low tide. Two hours of searching were not successful as the surf was difficult to keep a straight grid line. The next morning in the darkness it was a much calmer surf. I got a good signal that turned out to be a palladium wedding band. This had to be the one I was looking for. Palladium rings are not commonly found on the beach.

I know that people stress about the loss of sentimental keepsakes, so I try to keep them updated on the search and recovery as soon as possible. I don’t like to text the good news of a recovery. It’s much more rewarding to hear the voice on the other end of the phone. Good memories that I wish I could share with others. 

He was able to get my help using the internet, texts and a short phone call. We met later that afternoon to return his ring that had been in the ocean for more than five days.

*** Christie lost her white gold diamond engagement ring in the surf at a Orange County, CA. beach. She was home 50 miles inland when she contacted me. We talked about the time of day the loss occurred and she gave me verbal directions as to a good landmark on the beach. Neither she or her husband could meet me at the location.

I was able to get to beach at a 4am minus low tide the next day. After more than two hours I got a good signal in knee deep waves that turned out to be Christie’s awesome ring. Even though I cross gridded for another hour the wedding ring did not show. Normally both rings are very close together the first couple days of the loss. 

Christie told me in the begging that she was only interested to recover the engagement ring. I did go back a second day for one more try to find the other ring. Crazy surf conditions make for a challenging search. Had to give up on the second ring. 

Christie and her husband were able to meet me after they got off work. She was more than happy to have her ring back after believing that it was list forever. We never know if I may find the other ring some day. It’s happened before.
