Jolie contacted me in the evening, she had lost her ring in the sand at the beach while throwing a football around, and was needing help in finding it. I let her know I was available, and was on my way.

When I got to the area she and her friend were waiting by the swing set, and showed me the area of the loss which was right next to it. Jolie proceeded to show me exactly what she did when she felt the ring leave her finger which narrowed the search area considerably. I began my grid, and made about 5 passes before I heard anything in the head phones, then the high pitch of silver rang in my ears, and I dug. There in my scoop was one of the finest silver rings I have ever found. It was a shear delight just to look at. I pulled it out and held it up for her, and she ran over in disbelief that it was found so quickly. To see her smile was a completion of my day.

Lost Gold Ring Underwater Found by Dowsing Rod at Argo Park Ann Arbor Michigan

  • from Detroit (Michigan, United States)

Rapid Eye Movement…

….Is a unique phase of sleep with humans, helping a person to dream. But what happened to Abe was no dream but rather a nightmare. While getting out of a raft Abe and his fiancée decided to body surf down a rock waterslide. When they reached the bottom, the rapids tossed them around. Arriving on shore the ring his father gave him was missing. A few searches last week brought no luck. With wedding plans in the near future, Abe began to wonder how he would explain the loss of the ring to his mom when he visits her soon, and his dad who he chats with regularly. Time is of the essence. On site today, as I observed the quickness and unsafe look of the slippery rocks and rapids, I thought that I’d try to see if my Dowsing Rod would reveal any information to help narrow down where to look. While I showed Abe how to prepare the snorkel masks from fogging, I took a few readings with the dowsing rod and got 2 targets close together. He said that was the general area where they got roughed up. Entering the turbulent water with pin pointers, snorkel masks and a metal detector, we slowly crept thru the sharp rocks. Abe started to search on the far side of the rapids, and I started to search the close side, avoiding the strong current of the main rapids. After a few minutes Abe came up with the clad half dollar coin that was in his pocket! So, we felt that we were close to where his ring may be, and now I hoped that this was one of the two objects that the dowsing rod picked up on. As I scanned the metal detector it gave out a few signals around some rocks, but the current was too strong to operate the detector. Taking it back to shore I returned with the pin pointer. Submerging below the surface the current was almost unbearable. I had to anchor my feet on some tall rocks and balance myself. At first all I saw was tons of bubbles racing past my snorkel mask, and while exhilarating, my thoughts wondered if this is what being inside a bottle of champaign would be like. Refocusing on the task at hand I noticed a lull in the clusters of bubbles. During these moments I was able to do a visual form of REM by rapidly moving my eyes to see the bottom and where the rocks were that the metal detector signaled near. And of course, they were a few feet away! Moving carefully, I was able to get within reach of the rocks. Poking around the base of one of them the pin pointer buzzed, but as I had seen lots of bottle caps under the water, I figured this was another. Letting go of the pin pointer the lanyard kept it from drifting as I felt around the rock, I felt the edge of a round object. As I pulled it up, another clear cycle of no bubbles appeared, I saw that it was Abe’s ring! Regaining my footing I yelled out to him as I held the ring towards the blue sky! He zoomed towards me and could not believe it. We got to shore as quick as we could so he could show his fiancée. They were both totally elated and thrilled with the rapid response.

Diamond Wedding Band Recovered In Belmar New Jersey

I got a text from Ross asking for help to locate his wife’s missing wedding band. I called him and got the details and told him i’d head down to the Belmar beach immediately. Seems his wife was enjoying the day at the beach with their daughter, she took off her wedding band to put lotion on their daughter and put it in a side pocket on her beach chair not knowing there was a hole in it. She realized it was gone when returning back home to Pennsylvania and gave up hope of ever seeing it again. Ross did a google search and found me on RingFinders and thought it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to me. He told me, along with a few pictures of their daughter playing in the sand as to where they were sitting to help me with the search. I got down to the beach, they were on the top of the slope to the right of the lifeguard stand. I started to grid just off to the side of the lifeguard stand and picked up a few trash targets, then about 20 feet from the stand I got a nice signal and scooped a little sand up and there was her ring in the bottom of the scoop.  Went back to the car and gave Ross a call with the good news. He couldn’t believe it. I made arrangements to meet up with him the next morning to return her ring. I’m glad I was able to reunite her with her ring, another happy ending recovery.

Gold Family Crest Ring Found after Lost at Laguna Beach, CA.

*** Rob had been to Victoria Beach which is one of the many small coves of Laguna Beach, CA. He put his gold family crest ring in his beach chair pocket before going into the ocean. 

He didn’t realize the ring was missing until the next morning while eating breakfast. He went back to the beach that morning and couldn’t find it in the sand. It could have been anywhere that he had been between the beach and his home where he stored the beach chair.

He called me from the beach just before noon. After hearing a familiar scenario of where he had placed the ring, I was pretty sure we had a chance to find the ring as from past ring searches these rings seem to fall into the sand when the beach chair is first picked up.

Rob was unable to meet me at the location later in the afternoon when the beach goers clear the towel line. It really wasn’t necessary because he had given me very clear directions. I was hoping that I didn’t have to grid search the 75 yards of sand back to the steps leaving the beach.

I arrived about 5:30pm and walked directly to where he described verbally on our phone conversation. A few minutes later, I had his unique gold family crest ring in my scoop. Sent a photo to Rob and he called right away. He told me that all the men in his family have identical rings and he was so relieved that he was not going to be responsible for losing his ring forever. Another great recovery story and a pleasure to meet Rob the next day when he picked up his ring

Lost Rose & White Gold Wedding Band at Sherwood’s Beach…FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a text Tuesday from Kendra whose husband Nick lost his White & Rose Gold Wedding Band at Sherwood Beach along the shore break on Monday. Nick and Kendra live on Hickam AFB and while spending the day at Sherwood’s, Nick’s Wedding Ring flew off when he was throwing a football. When I checked the surf report besides uncooperating surface and a jellyfish invasion kept me away until this Friday morning. Kendra and I agreed to meet Friday morning low tide 6:45 at the gate to the beach park. Her husband Nick was meeting with his Commander so he couldn’t attend. Kendra brought two friends that were there the day of the loss to help show me the location. We walked down to the beach and they showed me the area. The tide was very low so I decided to quickly search parallel to the shoreline in hopes of getting lucky. Nope! That didn’t happen only two dimes. I started on the left side of the grid and on about the sixth leg I got a blaring #16 on the Nox and on the second scoop there was Nick’s ring glistening in the morning sunlight. I walked back to the car where Kendra & friends were waiting. I yelled over, Got it! Just let me wash off and I’ll bring it over. Everyone who detects the East Shore knows how lucky after 5 days of surf that I was able to find Nick’s ring. Kendra is planning a special reunion with Nick and his ring. Can’t wait to see a pic of that! Aloha to Kendra & Nick!

We had just finished dinner, and were relaxing for the evening about 8:00 PM when Lisa called about 3 rings she had lost earlier in the day. She was wondering if I would be available the next day to help her find them in the sand at the beach. I could not let her wait, and encouraged a search that same night knowing that too much time elapsed, and too many variables (County beach cleaners, and other people metal detecting) could lead to not being able to find them. I asked if she could meet me down at the beach in about an hour, and I would do a search for her. She agreed, and I was on my way.

I met Lisa and her husband on the bike path, and we trudged out across the expanse of sand in the darkness. It was difficult for Lisa and her husband to find the exact spot using phone lights because there was nothing left to mark the area, but they knew the general area, and I knew that a meticulous grid and patience would eventually end up with success. So I began my search. I worked a little outside of the area, and moved in towards the suspected spot. Then one of the rings, the light silver one was spotted on the surface, and I went in to find the other two. Within a couple of minutes, at about 10:00 PM Lisa had all of her rings back, and was assured of a good night’s sleep. What a joy to bring this kind of joy to others.

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!

25th Wedding Anniversary Vacation Catastrophe Averted – Found and Returned Holden Beach NC

  • from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)

On Wednesday at 1:24 pm I received a text from Kimberly saying, in part “Hello are you a metal detector service?  My husband’s ring just slipped off his finger in choppy ocean. Not sure if it’s even possible to find, Holden Beach.” I didn’t see the text until an hour later and responded that I was and to please call me. After a while and no response, I called her and she put her husband, Jeff on the phone. Jeff said he was in about waist deep water between 1 and 1:30 pm. Taking a quick look at the tide charts, high tide was going to be close to 3 pm and the next low tide was a little after 10 pm. I told Jeff I’d be there at 8 pm and got the address. As the afternoon progressed, I started thinking about the dropping tide, the time he lost his ring and what time sunset would be. Getting there at 8 would give me less than an hour to search before it was dark. I normally don’t have a problem searching at night, but this year there’s been terrible rip currents along the east coast. I didn’t want to become a statistic hunting at night because I couldn’t keep an eye on the ocean conditions. I also thought that since he lost his ring within 2 hours of high tide, that 4 hours after high tide the ring should be reachable. So, I text Jeff saying I’d be there by 6:45. I showed up on time and met Jeff. As we walked out on the beach is when I learned that he had been throwing a football. My first question was “are you left or right-handed?” He responded right-handed, which meant he didn’t throw the ring off. He said he actually saw the ring come off his finger and sink. He tried diving for it but to no avail. As I’m walking out to the surf I noticed the sea breeze really kicking up the waves – not good! Jeff pointed out the area and I started with a parallel grid search to the surf, and after 4 or 5 lines, I switched to a perpendicular grid search heading out in the ocean. I was having a horrible time trying to keep a straight grid line because of the waves and current. After 2 hours of searching with no luck, losing daylight, and just plain getting beat to death with the waves and current I called it a night. I knew the ring was there, but with the noise and interference I was getting in the headset from the detector, I was sure I walked right over the ring and didn’t hear a tone. I told Jeff I’d be back at 9 the next morning.

The next morning came quick, but I was ready for the task. I showed up a little early and hit the beach. This time I brought my White’s PI, a great machine but it doesn’t give any indication of depth or type target it hits, just a solid tone. So, there’s a lot more digging involved than with the Equinox 800 that I used the day before. I started a perpendicular grid search straight out from the beach as far as I could get out before hitting the last sand bar where the waves break hard. Probably about 35-40 minutes and half way through the search area, I got a solid steady tone. I was pretty sure this had to be Jeff’s ring; normally trash (bottle caps, pull tabs, and other junk) doesn’t make it out as far as I was away from the shoreline. Two scoops of sand and I had the target out of the hole and in the scoop. I shook the sand out in the water, looked in the scoop and BINGO, I had a gold ring in the scoop. I had seen a picture that Jeff’s son had posted on a FB page showing Jeff’s ring and I knew I had his ring. I packed up my stuff from the beach and headed up to their rental house to give Jeff the good news. About half way up the beach I looked up and saw Jeff walking my way, he didn’t say a word. I made the comment that it was starting to get rough, as I reached in my pocket, pulled out his ring and held it up for him to see. No doubt, he was more than excited. I handed him his ring and he turned around towards the house, held it in the air, and yelled “He found it!” His entire family had been watching me and saw when I stopped searching and started digging. Then everyone watched as I walked out of the water, picked up my stuff and started walking their way. My understanding is they thought I might have found it but no one wanted to say it. Within seconds, Kimberly came running down the beach to hug Jeff. There were a couple of tears being wiped away, but they were happy tears. I’m not sure if this was actually their 25th Anniversary vacation with family but they are celebrating 25 years of marriage in Oct.

Jeff/Kimberly – Thank you for trusting me and The Ring Finders to help find your lost treasure. An early Very Happy Anniversary to you both and now you have one more chapter to add to your ring’s story. Best wishes to you both. And Thank You for Everything!

Grandma – Thank you for all your prayers, they helped.

*** Karla lost her engagement ring in the sand while playing with her daughter. After returning home she found my contact information while doing a google search.

She called me saying the loss happened at Balboa Beach. She didn’t know the street or lifeguard tower. I asked her to check photos. After checking photos, she told me it was lifeguard tower #10.  I was ready to roll to the location because it’s close to where I live. She sent me the photo.

When I received the photo of the lifeguard tower, could see tower #10, but it was not Balboa Beach. It was Huntington City Beach ( 10 miles away from  Balboa)  Glad I asked for the photo.

The photo had the buildings in the background. Also trash cans that gave me perfect landmarks to help me begin a grid search. The ring showed up shortly after starting the search. 

I was able to mail the ring to Karla because she could not drive to pick up her ring.. 

 

Available to help you now!! I WILL TRY ANYWHERE..
