**** Kathleen had been at a party in Long Beach, CA. with her friends on a Friday night. After midnight they all decided to take a swim in the ocean. Unfortunately she lost her vintage gold tourmaline ring in the water. After finding my contact information online, she told me that she was only in waist deep water and felt the ring slip off her finger. 

Kathleen was unable to meet me at the location. In this case it would be unnecessary because I would be searching at the low tide at 4am. Also she had sent me very clear directions using google earth marked up screen shots. My first search was in successful but I did get an idea of the conditions. The next day was a lower low tide and I was prepared to dig the many trash metal signals on this beach. 

I began my grid search in the center of the area of the loss, covering the zone to the north towards the water and back to the dry sand. After doing about 40 yards in that direction, I returned to my starting point where I continued my grid to the south. Second grid line in the south direction ”Boom” a great signal ( same as a aluminum pull tab )   Kathleen’s gold tourmaline ring. My first tourmaline ring and it was a beautiful color as the sunrise was beginning. 

I called her later that morning with the good news. We met later that morning to get her ring where it belongs. This ring was purchased several years ago in New Orleans, Louisiana as memory of her vacation to Marti Gras events. This was a challenging search dealing with the early tides and the metal trash, but worth every minute to be able to see the smile on Kathleen’s face when she held her cherished keepsake.

***  Melissa and Jason had been hitting a volley ball around while on the dry sand at Surfruder Beach, Malibu, CA. Melissa felt her gold class ring fly off her finger, disappearing into the sand. After a hour or more of searching the area they gave up searching. A person on the beach told them about the ring finders directory of metal detector specialists. 

Melissa called me asking for help. I was available to meet them later that afternoon. There were many people still on the small beach. Actually it looked like we would have to wait till people left the beach. That is not a new problem, it’s just a matter of out waiting the beachgoers. The sun will set and the afternoon winds will chase them off the beach. 

There were a few open areas of dry sand that allowed me to start eliminating the some spots that the ring could be hiding. I very rarely ask people to move, I don’t feel like bothering people that are enjoying a restful day at the beach. Once in a while people will volunteer to move their towels which is nice. Most the time I try not to tell them I’m looking for a valuable item. Just an important key ( it’s just a little white lie ). Sometimes if you tell them your looking for a valuable item, it causes a searching frenzy. Everybody wants to help and it gets crazy.

Almost finished detecting the few 10’x10’ open spots with no success, the magic tone of a gold ring was heard in my headphones. One scoop in the sand revealed Melissa’s awesome gold class ring. Melissa and Jason were near me and didn’t realize that the ring was in the scoop until I held the scoop up for her to see her ring. A very intense moment with smiles all around. It was another win for The RingFinders website directory.

.*** Brendan called asking if I was available to help him find his friend’s wedding ring. He was guarding the location because his friend had to leave with their five children after a whole day at the beach. The wedding band was in the Cupholder of a beach chair and they realized the ring had fallen into the sand as they pack up their beach gear. 

After spending a few minutes searching they had to leave. Brendan volunteered to stay and called me to help him search for the ring. It was just sunset when I met him at the location. I took a few minutes to get a little information about how the ring was lost. Lost less than two hours ago, discovered the ring missing shortly after it dropped into the sand and guarding the location till I arrived. Everything that I needed to make a successful recovery.

I set up my detector, did three 20 foot grid lines ”Boom” a great signal and wedding ring in the scoop. Brendan was surprised and happy to call his friend giving him the good news of the ring recovery.

*** A lady named Deepa called me after returning home from a day at a local Orange County California Beach. She had dropped two rings in the sand while at the beach. She was able to find one of the rings but her favorite Tiffany T ring could not be found. After talking to her on the phone, she had given me very good directions as to where the loss occurred. She had been sitting within 30ft. of a lifeguard tower which made it unnecessary for her to drive back to the beach to show me the location.

It was a perfect time to head for the location as people were beginning to leave the beach. Parking was easy compared to earlier in the day. I grabbed my detector, marching  out to the zone. They were a few people that gave me a curious eye. Starting with 30 ft. grid lines I dug a few trash metal objects and ” BOOM ”.. Deepa’s Tiffany Ring showed up after three grid passes. 

I turned off my machine walked to the car to call Deepa. I was home within an hour and a half of her original call for help. Yes! We love the quick recoveries, but it’s the NO FINDS that we don’t post that can kick your butt. Hours of searching for some of the losses that seem to be easy but the ring just won’t show up.. Very hard to tell people that I can’t find the item.. Once in a while we get a text or call from the person saying they found the ring somewhere out of the area they thought it was lost..

Deepa was surprised and excited to get her favorite ring returned the next day when we met in Newport Beach.

… Chris was playing beach volleyball at Manhatten Beach, CA. when he lost his Tungsten wedding ring. He didn’t feel it come off but he did know it was on before starting the game. Immediately after winning the game and before leaving the area around the volleyball court, he noticed his ring wasn’t on his finger. 

Chris was given my contact information by one of his neighbors. He said he would be able to meet me at the location. When I arrived, I told him this could be an easy recovery because he called me and I was there within a couple hours of the loss.  To most people it seems that this would be a simple search, but I have been surprised by how far a ring lost playing volleyball can end up. I try not to get overconfident that it’s going to be a fast recovery. 

Chris felt that it should be on the north side of the court. That’s where I started my grid search. He stayed with me as I found a few coins and metal trash. After finishing that side of the volleyball net, I could see Chris was beginning to lose hope. For some reason he had felt the ring had to be in that area. I have found rings lost while playing volleyball in the strangest places. Volleyball players are very active and there is major hand motions.

Well, after 30 minutes, I moved to the south side of the net. On the second pass near the net. “Boom”, a strong signal in my headphones which turned out to reveal the wedding ring in my sand scoop. Chris close  enough to me to hear the clanking of the heavy ring in my scoop. He knew we had found his ring. Big smile and a happy man to have his wedding ring back where it belongs.

… Nancy called me from her home in Victorville, CA. She and her husband had spent the day with their child at Baby Beach, Dana Point, CA. Nancy’c husband had given her his necklace for safe keeping as he went for a swim. She placed it with their belongings in a beach bag. 

At the end of the day, they packed up everything to drive the 125 miles to Victorville, CA. An hour into the drive her husband asked about the necklace. Nancy couldn’t find it and they were too far away to return to the beach.

The next morning Nancy got online locating my contact information. When she told me what happened and that her husband was very upset. She sent me a marked up Google earth screen shot. I told her there were probably too many people on the beach to search the dry sand of this small beach. I did get to the beach a couple hours before people started leaving. It was worth getting to search as people were leaving. 

I had covered most the area with only a couple families left in the area of the loss. Then the family that had a large tarp like blanket laid out on the sand, picked up and left. I walked over to grid search where the had been. Immediately I git a signal, looked down and in plain sight was the necklace with two large pendants. It had been under the blanket all day. I’m sure somebody would have found it within minutes. 

So glad to have waited and searched as people left the site. Nancy was elated when I texted her the good news. She wanted to surprise her husband. When they came to the beach a week later, I met Nancy and gave her the necklace. She walked back and surprised her husband after keeping it a secret for a week.

…. Maddy had been laying out on the beach at Newport Beach, CA. working in her summer tan. She took off her white gold pearl promise ring setting it on her towel while applying lotion. When she got ready to leave, she pick up the towel and walked about fifty feet before realizing the ring had fallen in the sand. 

She called her friend to help her search the sand. They spent more than three hours methodically searching the sand with the help of several other people who were just passing by. Finally someone told her about my services. She got my contact information with a quick online search.

I met her on the beach which is only a few miles from where I live. We walked over to the 40ft.x 40ft. loss site. I chose to begin the grid search in the center. After beginning the third grid line I got a perfect signal. One quick shallow scoop revealed Maddy’s ring.

She was so grateful and happy to have this special ring back, saying I can’t believe we found it. She also was sorry that she had not called me sooner. She didn’t like how frustrating it was to hand search the sand for so many hours, but she commented she did get a little more tan time. 

Maddy’s smile tells the whole story. This is what keeps me doing what I do..

… I was contacted by Phil who believe he lost his gold wedding ring while at a Totlot in Mission Viejo, CA. He had put his ring in his pocket when he took his son to play at the local park. When Phil talked to me on the phone he said he would not be able to meet me until late afternoon.

In this case I didn’t believe it was necessary to have him present as normally totlots are not very large. I assured him that he could trust me as I do this often, I don’t need anymore rings. It’s much more rewarding to find and return sentimental keepsakes such as wedding rings.

I was able find the park and I had the whole park to myself. It was a short walk to the sandy Totlot play area. He had mention that the monkey bar area was where he believed the ring was lost but he had also spent time with his son at the swings. 

When I came to the swing area there were tell tale signs that it had been searched, finger drag marks. A quick scan with my detector, no signals. Then I walked directly to the bars where the ring signal showed up on my metal detector. Phil was right about the location of the loss. 

I took a photo of the ring and Phil was able to meet me in between his daily duties. He was very appreciative that he was able to get his ring found and returned by just making a phone call. 

These days people are busy and it always easy to get the time to rent a metal detector, learn how to work it and get back to spend hours learning to search for a important irreplaceable sentimental keepsake. This is why I feel good about helping people like Phil, also we have to give credit to the Internet and all the new technology.

… Kendra and her husband Michael were at The Wedge in Newport Beach, CA. It is a famous surfing and body surfing spot at the south end of the Balboa Penesula. Michael had handed Kendra his wedding ring as he didn’t want to lose it while body surfing.

They returned home before realizing Kendra did not have the ring. Early the next morning they returned to search by hand in the dry sand. While they were crawling around in the sand. The couple that I had found their ring the day before ( Jolene and Greg )  told them about my service. Kendra looked me up on TheRingFinders website. I was able to meet them shortly after talking to them. 

When we met they showed me a 20’x20’ square area where they had been sitting. Like most beach loss locations it was easy to spot with all the finger drag marks in the sand. It didn’t take long to find the yellow gold wedding ring. They were amazed that the service was available, telling me they would tell all their friends about The Ring Finders website.

*** Donnie called me while he was driving to a local sporting goods store to buy a metal detector. His son Cameron had lost his cell phone at Newport Beach the night before. The phone was important because it had a special photo of Cameron’s mother who had past away recently. The photo was inserted into a custom phone case and there were no duplicates.

I was just finishing a search less than a mile away from the location he told me the phone was lost. It was an Iphone that was still transmitting its location on the lost my phone app. I told him,  I could find the phone and could meet him within twenty minutes. 

I finished up what I was doing and we both drove up to the site at the same time. We walked out on the beach and the phone showed up soon after I turned on my detector swinging for about twenty feet. They had spent almost two hours trying to find the Iphone by hand searching before calling for help. I saved Donnie the cost of buying a detector and probably a lot of frustration. The phone was actually in wet saltwater sand that most inexpensive hobby detectors can not handle. It was a pleasure to be available to help them.. They were so thankful, and I could tell this photo meant the world to the both of them.
