Damian was visiting Newport Beach on a family vacation. While he was playing in the surf with his daughter at a small beach named Little Corona Delmar his platinum wedding band came off into waist deep water.
Diving in the surf zone is never a good idea but Damian tried unsuccessfully to locate the ring. Six days later he was back home in Missouri telling a co-worker about losing his ring. The person told Damian about TheRingFinders.
Damian contacted me at 10am in the morning. I was able to see that the next best low tide was at 12:30am. I tried not to raise his hopes, because our beaches vary so much and it had been six days. I compare it to the lottery with better odds. “You Can’t Find It, If You Don’t Try”
Little Corona DelMar is less than three miles from my place. I walked down to the beach at midnight and Damian’s Platinum ring of 18 years was in my scoop within a half hour. It was probably 8 inches deep and did not give me a strong with my Minelab Excalibur 2 metal detector.
We talked on the phone the next morning. It was a great conversation with Damian who was very excited saying over and over he couldn’t believe it. Three days in later he received the ring by mail.
I will try anywhere, this is one of the reasons I rarely say it’s not worth searching.
If you lose something in the dry sand, mark the area and get landmarks that will help you return to the general area. Call a metal detector expert from TheRingFinders ASAP. Some beaches get daily sand cleaning machines that may end up claiming your valuable before we have a chance to find it with a metal detector. We want to optimize our chances of finding your sentimental keepsake. Timing is important. I am listed at many Southern California beaches and locations in Los Angeles / Orange Counties.
