*** 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.

Lost Palladium Wedding Ring in Surf while Boogie Boarding at a SoCal Beach ..

*** 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.

*** After doing a ring recovery for Justin at Bolsa Chica State Beach, I took a little time to detect around the Firepits before driving home. After about a half hour,  I found a new Iphone that was in the sand next to a firepit. The battery needed charging. 

Returning home I was able to put a quick charge on the phone. It was locked but I did intercept a message. It said, ”This is a lost cellphone please call this phone number XXX-XXX-XXXX”

I guess this is a function of find apple iPhone ” Find My Phone”..  I contacted the owner using my phone to call him. He sent a friend to pick up the phone later that afternoon. I found out the phone had been lost four days at that location on the beach. 

Last time I found the owner of a locked Iphone. I was able to get past the locked feature by asking Siri to call mom. The phone called the owners mother.

*** Justin called asking if I was available to search for his white gold wedding ring at Bolsa Chica State Beach, CA. This state beach is located in Orange County, CA. and is actually in the City of Huntington Beach, CA. 

He and his family spent the afternoon and evening set up at the fire pits. They set up a small tent to get away from the afternoon breeze. Justin put his wedding ring inside a pocket in the tent. After packing up the tent he remembered the ring when packing up the car. 

Returning to the firepit to hand search the sand proved futile. The next morning he called me giving me verbal directions and a photo of the area. Justin was not able to meet me at the location but I felt it would be more important to get to the location as soon as possible. I had enough information to do the search. Timing is the most important factor for a successful search.

I had received the call at 7:30am and had Justin’s ring in the sand scoop before 9:00am. I love being able to leave promptly on these types searches because it’s very important. Justin was surprised when I sent him a photo of his ring so soon after he gave me all the landmarks as where he believe his ring might be. He met me that afternoon after he got off work.  He is a fireman and it was my pleasure to help a guy who job is to help others. A happy camper and very nice guy.

*** 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.

*** Mary was doing her yoga work out on a lawn when her necklace broke. The small gold cross that was a gift from her mother disappeared into the grass. She found my service on line. She immediately called me asking if I was available to yelp her. 

I left right away to meet her in Santa Monica, CA., where she was waiting to show me the location.

She showed me where the incident happened. As we looked into the lawn I caught a glimpse of gold in the grass and pointed, before I could say anything, Mary spotted it at the same time. 

After retrieving the petite gold cross, I checked it with my pinpointer and could not get a decent signal. I know this was so small that a metal detector may not have detected this. So happy that we were able to visually locate this very small gold cross. I believe the time of day and the position the sun helped to make this visible. Mary was was very happy that she waited long enough for this recovery.

**** Raloul and Lisa vacationing from Germany spent their last day with their kids at Baby Beach in Dana Point, CA.  Here we go again, Lisa took her wedding ring set off putting them in a pocket of her shirt. After a couple hours playing with her kids in front if their beach camp. When Lisa reached into her pocket both wedding rings were missing. 

Someone on the beach noticed both Raloul and Lisa searching through the sand. They told the couple how to contact me to help them find their rings. After they called me they agreed to stay in the asea till I arrived. 

We met on the beach less than an hour after the initial call. I this case, getting to the location could not be an advantage. Many people still on the small beach. Also, part of the sandy area was not soft sand. The rings may not have been under the sand and could have been picked up by one of the many people on the beach.

There was some searchable spots around the sides and in front of their beach tent. It took about 15 minutes to clear those open spots. Then just before I ran out of space to hunt, I got the first ring. The second ring was just two feet away. Both rings we’re less than two inches deep and only a few inches from the people set up next to them. The search worked out well with little wasted time. If we didn’t find the rings. I know I was willing to wait till everyone left the beach to complete the search.

Both Lisa and Raloul were excited and happy to have their wedding rings back. It would not have been terrible to return to Germany without Lisa’s rings. Another happy day on the beach with several beach goers witnessing this ring recovery. Most people say they didn’t know the ring finders metal detecting service exists.
