Gold Ring for Proposal Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA...Found and Joyfully Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I had just gotten home from the ring return for the twin sisters last night, and was waiting for my wife to come home with dinner, when I received a call from Jessie regarding a ring loss at the beach. He had a relative from back East visiting, and there was a marriage proposal out on the sand at the beach. Well Mark was proposing to Taylor with Taylor’s mother’s ring set, when sometime during the celebratory act, part of the set was dropped in the sand. They searched for it, but were unable to locate it. Jessie found me on the internet, and called. I let him know that as soon as my wife got back, I would woof my food down, and go immediately to the beach to do a search.

When I got there Jessie, Mark and Taylor met me and took me to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. Jessie had drawn a square line outlining the area they believed the ring to be. I began my search, and on the second pass I got the one only signal. I scooped, and there was the glint of gold in the scoop from the high intensity light coming from the headlight I had on. I reached in and pulled out the ring and gave it to Taylor. Needless to say, there was much rejoicing out on the beach. Taylor was able to reunite the ring with its partner, and their marriage proposal ended on a very happy note, smiles all around!

Taylor sent the following testimonial:

“It was a great first day in Hermosa Beach, CA and even better when Mark proposed at sunset. For me, it was truly special how Mark asked me with my mother’s wedding ring, but during the excitement the ring was dropped. It soon turned extremely stressful when the sun had completely gone down and the water was coming up.

Steve Smith showed up quickly and found the ring in no time. It meant a lot to all of us that the ring was located. He was a great help during this stressful time and he truly cared about helping us find the ring. I would not hesitate to call him again if needed!”
