Custom Silver Ring Lost at Venice Beach CA...Recovered and Happily Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Antony last night, he was desperate about his ring he lost at the beach just an hour earlier. I told him I would go as soon as I finished my dinner, knowing that the sooner you search at a public place, the better the odds of finding what was lost.

Antony met me at the location, and explained how the loss occurred, and what metal the ring was made of. He said that he was walking his dog, and threw the leash when the ring flew off of his finger. He also told me it was a silver ring. Now I have had enough experiences over my time of doing ring searches to know that not everyone really knows what metal their ring is, so I dug everything that sounded gold or silver, and everything in between, I did not want to miss his ring. He told me that a friend had made it custom for him, and that his was 1 of 4 this person had created, and he would be heartsick to have to tell this friend he had lost it. I searched into the night with no ring, and it was getting so late that I decided to call an end to the search, because of the area (it can get pretty criminal late in the night). I told him I would come back in the morning to complete my search, and expand it if necessary. I did ask him if there were any identifying features or engravings on the ring, and he immediately said, yes, it is a skull ring. I figured, if I dug it I should recognize it with no problem.

I got there this morning, and Antony met me again. I began a cross grid of last night to make sure I had not missed the ring. My search last night had been very thorough, there was no ring. I then began to expand the area, and after about 4 more passes I got a real strong silver signal in my head phones, and in the sand I had scooped out was the biggest, heaviest silver skull ring I had ever seen. It really looked like pirate treasure. He was right it was silver, and his ring must have had 2 to 3 ounces of silver in it. Antony had left while I was searching, so I called his phone to let him know I had found the ring, but the call went into voice mail. I left a message hoping he would get back to me, but no reply. So I just kept detecting, because I could see his car, so I knew he hadn’t left the area. About 45 minutes later he called me to let me know he was coming, and when he arrived and saw his ring he was elated, gave me a big hug, and told me he had been getting a hair cut. Good to be looking nice when you are really happy. Another great day, being able to make another great smile.

If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, call as soon as possible. I will work hard, using the most up to date metal detectors, 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.
