Harry called about 5:30 PM the day before last, he had lost his platinum wedding ring while throwing a ball to his dog. He threw the ball, and his loosely fitting ring flew off of his finger. He and his friend watched as the ring hit the sand, then a wave washed over it, and it was gone in an instant. The tide was on the rise, and where it was lost, with the high surf, it would have been nearly impossible to do the search that night, so we arranged to meet the next afternoon at low tide.

When I got to the beach the wind was blowing with an extreme ferocity, and the wave action was strong. I put on my waders, knowing I would be getting in the water for the search. Harry and his friend James met me and showed me the area of the loss. I had brought 2 detectors down for the search. With the strong surf, there was a possibility the ring might have rolled when it hit, so I was going to search in the water to ensure a thorough search. I did my search of the area with a PI detector with no results. I then went over with a multi frequency VLF detector, again with no results. I wasn’t giving up, and because it had been a full 24 hours since the loss, I put the other 2 detectors away, and brought my best multi frequency VLF detector with a 17 inch coil down thinking the ring might have sunk into the sand further than the other detectors could reach, and performed another grid. I could see that Harry was getting discouraged. He even came to me ready to throw in the towel, but I told him I was going to complete a few more passes in the general area of the direction of the toss. Up, down, and up again, wait what was that tone, a sweet tone in the headphones. I dug once, dug again, and again, deep, very deep, and out of the hole after I kicked the sand aside was the beautiful shimmer of platinum. I looked at Harry, pointed to him, reached down, and lifted his ring out of the sand, to which he and his friend came running over in disbelief; we had been there close to 3 hours. It was a very happy day for Harry, and I was happy to be of help to him!

    Steve is a legend!! There are no words that can describe how highly I recommend his service!! My wedding ring flew off my finger into the sand/sea up in Malibu. Bolstered by the enormous swell and giant waves that day, I had no hope of recovering it. I scratched through the sand for an hour and had nothing to show for my work. The tide came in within two hours and my ring was under 6ft of water. I called Steve on a whim. Little did I know the power of Steve and his metal detector was the magic I needed. He came out the next day and spent three hours finding it. I was ready to throw in the towel but he insisted he keep looking. 10 minutes later Steve pulled it up from about 2ft deep and 15m away from the lost location. Steve’s perseverance prevailed. Not only that, he is a stand up guy and a pleasure to meet! Thanks for all you hard work, Steve! If you lose jewellery, call Steve!!!
