Maria contacted me concerning the loss of her engagement and wedding rings. She had given them to her daughter for her marriage, and she went to the beach a few days after. Her daughter had put the rings in her shorts for “safe keeping”, but at the end of the day, they were gone. Maria and her family spent hours trying to find the set, but were unable to. She contacted me the day after, which gave me a bit of reservation when talking about a recovery knowing that this beach is not only cleaned by machines on a daily basis, but also heavily metal detected. She would not be able to meet me there, but told me where the loss occurred, and sent a video showing the area. I was on my way.

When I got to the area, the first thing I noticed was that the machines had not gone through in the morning which increased my hope, and I sent this information to Maria. I needed a bit more clarification on the location, and we sent text back and forth until I felt I knew where to start searching. I began a meticulous grid making sure to cover all the sand in the area. I was getting no signals which I was expecting maybe from bottle caps or tin foil. Then on one pass, a good solid signal in the head phones. I dug, and there they were, still together as one in all their splendor. I sent her a text about the recovery, and offered to drive them to her at her job. Needless to say Maria was overjoyed. love those smiles,

Maria sent the following testimonial:

My daughter lost her wedding rings at Huntington Beach Monday night. We dug for over 4 hours with no luck. We ended up going home long after the sun had gone down, defeated, sore from digging and crying. As I was about to sleep, I Googled “what to do when you lose your ring at the beach” and I came across the RingFinders website. At first I was going to dismiss the option because the initial testimonials were from North Carolina/east coast area, but I did eventually see there were services in Southern California. I decided to call in the morning (now I know to call ASAP, meaning *immediately* even if it’s 11 p.m.). I texted Mr. Smith the next (mid) morning and after some who/what/when/where questions and info, he was on the hunt for the rings. I honestly was not optimistic because there were 4 of us looking for over 4 hours, digging digging digging with zero luck, but I just had to try because the rings have such deep sentimental value. The rings were my engagement/wedding rings from my husband who passed away in 2016, and I had just recently resized them for my daughter. My daughter and son-in-law (who is a Marine) decided to have a quick civil ceremony due to his military schedule not being amenable to planning the wedding they want anytime in the near future. I offered them my wedding rings for the civil ceremony since my daughter would inherit them eventually anyway. They had just gotten married the Friday before. 11 minutes. Upon arriving at the lifeguard station where the rings were last seen, Mr. Smith found the rings in 11 minutes. I can’t begin to put into words all the motions that engulfed me as soon as I saw the text: “I found your rings” with the subsequent pictures of the actual rings in the sand. BLESS YOU and the work you do, Steve Smith. Not many people know about this site, but they will now! I’m telling anyone and everyone this story and about this service!
