Vintage Diamond Ring Lost at Winery in Malibu, CA...Found in a most Precarious Place and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was on my way to metal detect one of the beaches today, so I guess it was appropriate for me to get the call from Cassandra about losing her ring yesterday. She had been at a winery, and out on the back balcony when she inadvertently dropped  her ring. Below was a narrow ledge where she saw the ring fall to, and was certain it was still there.

When I met Cassandra at the winery she took me to the area, which was very steep. The ledge she believed the ring to have fallen onto was about 1 foot wide, and thickly covered in grass and bushes. The ledge was also about 20 feet above a shallow concrete creek bed. I first went down to see how difficult it would be to use my equipment, and decided I could do it. When I got back with my equipment she pointed out the spot she believed the ring had fallen. With one hand holding onto the rocks, I proceeded to scan the area with my 6 inch coil. It wasn’t long before I received a good signal. I pulled out my pin pointer to check, and when I moved some of the shrubs I saw the ring positioned precariously on the very edge of the ledge. I then gingerly reached down and plucked it from danger, and showed it to a very excited Cassandra. I believe her smile tells it all. What fun, what a great day!


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, Northridge, Pasadena, 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.
