Wedding Ring Set lost at Topanga State Beach, CA...Found and Joyously Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Genevieve contacted me late yesterday afternoon asking if I could help in finding her wedding set (engagement ring and wedding band). I asked her a few questions, and she let me know that the loss had happened not too long before her call which encouraged me at the possibility of a recovery. I told her that I would leave immediately in order to not allow any more time to elapse, causing the recovery to be much harder. I then asked her to secure the area, so that it would not be disturbed any further, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach, I met her husband Carlo who led me to where Genevieve was waiting. They had laid out towels to secure the area where they thought rings had been lost. We discussed what had happened, and then I began the search. After about 3 short passes I got a good signal, dug, and in the scoop was Genevieve’s wedding band. I held it up, and said #1, she was so excited, as was Carlo. I continued my search working out of the area we discussed when I received another good signal, looked down and could see a small part of the edge of the second ring. In went the scoop, and out came the engagement ring. Needless to say, there were two very happy people at the beach yesterday. They had totally given up hope before they called. The call to me was a last resort. I am so glad I was able to answer that call, and restore their joy. Great day!

Genevieve sent the following testimonial:

“Steve came to the rescue when I honestly though I had forever lost my rings! A lazy day at the beach in Malibu quickly turned to a really stressful afternoon when I realized we were on our way home…without my engagement ring and wedding band. Luckily, when I contacted Steve, he immediately responded. Within 10-15 minutes of arriving at the spot on the beach where I had hung out, he had found BOTH the rings!! I was immediately in disbelief that I was able to get them back and extremely grateful for Steve’s services. He was very friendly, highly skilled with the gear he brought and pinpointed with good accuracy where the rings were in the sand. I’ve never been so overcome with relief and gratitude, thank you Steve for doing what you do!!!”
