Mobile Metal Detecting Service by Stan Ross member of TheRingFinders … Available Now … 949-500-2136
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..
