Lost Wedding Ring at Santa Monica Beach, CA...Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I received a call from Geno this morning, asking if I would be able to help him find his wedding ring. He had been to the beach the day before, and wanting to go into the water he wisely took his ring off and wrapped it in his shirt before he went in. The problem occurred when he was ready to leave, and he forgot he had placed his ring in the shirt. He picked up his shirt, and the ring was gone. Seeing that a day had gone by, I had to ask some questions in order to evaluate the possibilities of finding his ring. By the time I finished asking my probing questions, I felt there was a pretty good chance of recovery, but it had to be today.

We scheduled to meet at 5:00 PM, so Geno could show me the area of the loss. When we met up, I asked how he had found me, and he told me that a friend of his, had a friend Eugene, who I had found his wife’s rings two weeks prior, that recommended me to him. He took me out to the spot that he was sure the loss took place, so I readied my equipment, and began my search. In about 20 seconds, I heard that unmistakable sound of gold in my ears, and began to dig. A couple of scoops later Geno’s ring was bouncing around in my scoop. I pulled it out and asked him if this was what we were looking for, at which time with exuberance, and some disbelief he acknowledged the ring to be his, identifying the inscriptions inside. This recovery happened so fast because Geno remembered the exact location, and did not let too much time expire before contacting someone to help him; those are important things to remember when a loss occurs.

What a pleasure it is to see joy returned. What a great day it was today.

If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, call as soon as possible. I will work hard to help you find what you thought might never be found again. I search,  Beverly Hills, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Seal Beach, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Torrance, Venice Beach, and all parks, yards, gardens, and ponds (to 5 foot depths) in all of Orange County, all of Los Angeles County, and Ventura County.

      Yes Chris,

      Thanks, I was very happy to hear that word is getting out about The Ring Finders, and also to know that I played a part in it. True, it is so important for people to get us as close to the spot of the loss as possible, I think it adds to awe the recovery inspires when it happens so fast.

    Congratulations Steve on the quick find…. I was surprised this week when a man at Aliso Beach asked me if I belonged to TheRingFinders. He told me that he had read articles about our group and praised what we do.
