Diamond Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA...Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Two days ago I received an email late in the evening from Raja regarding his wedding ring. He had been at the beach, and while brushing the sand off of his hands against his pants, his wedding ring flew off. He and his wife looked for it but were unable to find it. Later he was searching the internet and located The Ring Finders site where he found me. I emailed him back asking that he call, but he was unable to make the call until the next morning. He called, and I asked my standard questions, finding out that the loss was in a place that the County beach cleaning machines would not be going over, so I felt good about a recovery. I arranged to meet his wife at the spot yesterday morning because Raja had to work.

When I got there Raja’s wife Harpreet and her brother in law met me and took me to the area of the loss. After a brief question and answer session, I proceeded to search for the lost ring. I began at the furthest possible area away from the loss and worked my way back to where Raja had been standing when cleaning his hands. It was when I got to his previous position that I received a good signal, dug, and had his ring in my scoop. The ring had not gone very far, but had flown far to the left of his original position. I pulled it out and showed it to Harpreet who gladly identified it as her husband’s ring. She told me they had been married just 2 years, so the ring was a fresh token of their commitment to each other. Needless to say she was very happy to be able to go home and give it back to Raja. They asked that I not use pictures of them in the blog, so you get me with the ring instead. A nice day of smiles!

    Way to go Steve! I think we smile outside and inside just as much as the people who lost their precious item, hey?!!! You are keeping nice and busy and that is GREAT!

    Wow! Thank you for sharing. Great finding, and good work! It’s so darned easy to lose something in the sand. Especially something as small as a ring. I always try not to wear my good jewelry going to the beach. I have a few plastic costume jewelry pieces that I don’t care if I lose, so a metal detector wouldn’t help, but I won’t miss it if I lose anything.
