Katie lost her engagement ring of 1 1/2 years yesterday at the beach where she had gone to beat the heat we are experiencing here in Southern California. While she was brushing the sand off, her ring unknowingly came off in the soft sand. After she realized what had happened and intensely searched for it, she found me on The Ring Finders site and called me this morning. We discussed what had happened, and it sounded like we should be able to find the ring. we arranged to meet at the beach when her time would allow.

When I arrived, because of the remote location surrounded by mountains, I was losing my phone signal, so finding her became an exercise, but we were finally able to connect. Katie then led me down to the area they had been the previous day. She had marked the spot with sticks ( a very smart move) in order to find it the next day. She explained where she had been, and I was off and searching. After a couple of passes with no signal I received a very low tone in the headphones, but kind of “sticky”. It was the only signal so I dug, and dumped the sand and rescanned the hole, I had gotten it out. I then scanned the dumped sand and the signal was strong, I scooped again and there in the scoop was her beautiful gold and diamond engagement ring. Oh was she happy! She then called her fiancé to let him know the ring had been found. She put the phone on speaker, and he expressed his gratitude as well. To see her joy was a refreshing sight in this time when many are fearful and despairing. What a really great day!

    Words can not describe how grateful I am to Steve in helping me find my lost engagement ring. After a fun filled day on Ventura county beach I realized that my engagement ring was missing from my finger. We all looked for the ring frantically having maybe 20 minutes of sunlight left. I left the beach feeling discouraged and upset and thinking I would never see this ring ever again. The next morning I decided to look up someone that could help and luckily I found Steve. He was so kind and reassuring that it was definitely worth going out to look for the ring. I met him in a remote location that was hard to find but he was a real trooper and climb down the Rocky steps to help me. Within maybe five minutes he worked his magic and found my ring! I was so incredibly happy and grateful! Steve thank you for finding my ring and for being an overall amazing person!
