Lost Silver Ring in Garden .. Los Angeles, CA. .. Found and Returned

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)









I went on a ring call to a monastery in the hills of Los Angeles, CA. I was there to help Dave find a small silver ring that his mother in India have given him. Dave had been walking down a corridor when put his hands through his hair bringing his hands down to his side, he felt his ring slip from his finger. He heard it hit the cement one time possibly going in the lawn or some landscaping with woodchip ground cover.

It was a small area and should have been an easy search. After an hour searching with my small coil on my metal detector in all the obvious areas with no success, I brought out the trusty hand held detector which we call a pinpointer. I went down to my hands and knees to search through the plants, crevices and potted planters. 

It was getting frustrating because it was such a small area. I was running out places to search. Could the ring have rolled much further than we thought? As last resort I double checked the small plants in the garden. Yes, the third time is a charm. The small silver ring was lying right at the base of a small shrub. It may have been in the leaves of the shrub or I could have missed it the other two times with my detectors.

This was a very sentimental ring for Dave and I was happy to be able help him find it.
