*** Frank and his family were at Seal Beach, CA. when he put his platinum wedding ring in the pocket of his beach chair. Last year he had lost the same ring in the surf for over a month and I was able to recover it. That time his wife called me giving me verbal directions. I knew it was a shot in the dark, but it turned out to be a successful search. She didn’t tell him and surprised him by hanging it where he normally put his ring while showering. 

Even though he had had the platinum wedding ring resized, Frank didn’t want to lose the ring in the water again. He put his ring in a pocket of his beach chair for safekeeping. This is such a common story, I knew we had a very good chance to find the ring as he contacted me within an hour of the loss. Our only possible problem could be, he did not realize the ring was missing until they got back to the car. ( a couple hundred yards across the sand). It’s my experience that rings in beach chair cup holders fall out when the chair is picked up or soon after.

This time I went out to the towel line and near a blue tent that Frank had given as a landmark. The tent was still on the beach. After a few grid lines, I got a few great signal in my earphones with a perfect platinum ID reading on my detector screen. A quick dig with my sand scoop revealed Frank’s Tiffany Platinum Wedding Ring.

I called him and he was able to meet me 20 minutes later. It was our first meeting and he told me the story about how his wife had surprised him after losing the ring in the surf last year. Every search is different and it’s always an adventure to search for items lost in so many different scenarios. In a lot of ways, it like gambling. I’ve got to believe the person has a general idea where the ring was lost. I do have a list of texts of people that have found their lost jewelry at a completely different location . It is just part of what we do as ring finders. Also many people do not understand what it takes to be a ring finder.  It’s a special challenge to find a known a known lost object, much different than wondering around a park or beach finding the odd valuable. 

I am retired having many things that keep me busy. I would rather be available to search for sentimental lost keepsakes than do anything else. It was a pleasure to meet Frank and return his wedding ring a second time.
