**** Damir called me asking if I remembered finding an engagement ring he dropped in the sand three years ago. It was late at night when he was proposing to Ellie  That night we also had the help of a police officer who provided light while I found the ring for them.

Damir was at work. This time he asked if I could help his wife, Ellie find her white gold diamond wedding ring. She was at the beach with her mother and father in-laws. She would be able to wait an hour at the location till I could meet her. 

After parking I started to call her cellphone when she walked up to me asking if I were here to help her find the ring.
We walked a couple blocks to the location on the beach. These are the most successful type calls. She knew the ring was on her finger when she arrived on the beach. She didn’t leave the area. She called for help without wasting time searching the sand. Her husband still had my contact information which also helped. 

Now all we had to do was turn on the metal detector and begin a thorough search pattern. A few minutes later we had the small size #4 white gold with diamonds wedding ring recovered from the sand. Some metal detectors struggle when trying to detect small white gold /diamond rings, especially if the are in mineralized beach sand.

She was extremely relieved to have this very sentimental ring back where it belongs. It’s impossible to replace the original wedding ring. We had a good time reminiscing the first engagement ring find several years before.

Ring Finder Called Out To Find A Crop Lifter! In A 40 Acre Canola Field!! Flagstaff County, Alberta Canada

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118



Neil called me to ask if I had a metal detector that could detect a piece of equipment that fell off his swather and ended up in a windrow on 40 acres of canola crop. His windrows were about six feet wide and roughly three feet high and I told him that I did have a metal detector that could possibly find it! I told Neil that this would be a great test for my detector and that I would do my best to find the crop lifter.

We both agreed to meet.  Neil told me he had to find that crop lifter before he could continue to combine his crop.  The first day we spent approximately five hours riding on a quad going at a snail pace down the windrow, Neil driving and me riding shotgun.  No luck.

Second day out;  No Luck.

Yesterday Neil called me again to see if I was able to come out today and try again because time is running out and he wants his crop in the bins. I told him I would be there around 9:30.  Neil told me I would be riding with his brother Owen this time.  Owen and I started out from where we last left off a few days back and after a couple of hours of going up and down five windrows,  bingo I found the crop lifter.   Owen was very happy and now he and Neil can continue to finish harvesting.

As you can see I’m always open to a challenge and believe me this one was a real challenge.  If that piece of equipment had been picked up by the combine that could have been one major expense and down time for them.

Thanks Neil and Owen! I had a great time ridding shotgun.

Lost Ring in Westlake Village Found!

I got a call from Mary this morning as she had accidentally lost her ring last week. She was out on her deck enjoying the creek view below and got to playing with her ring. As Murphy’s law states if something could go wrong it will and her ring slipped off her finger hit the deck and then disappeared. Evidently it had fallen through the slats in the wood deck and fallen below into a 6 inch cushion of oak leaves. Mary had tried to find it herself but couldn’t so she located me and I got out there immediately.

I took her broom with me to check for rattlesnakes as the underside of this deck is the perfect spot for one of those to hide and after I cleared the area I proceeded to get on my hands and knees to do a search with my handheld pinpointer. About 10 minutes in I got a solid tone in the leaves and I uncovered the ring. It was a sentimental ring for her as it was the only possession she had left that survived a fire at her other home last year where everything was destroyed. To some people it’s just a ring but to others these rings have a deeper meaning so I was ecstatic to find it and give it back. If you lose something like a ring, a pendant or other jewelry don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 and we can set up a time to get it back.

Jen & Paulo went for a day of sun and fun with their children to the municipal beach at Long Point, Ontario August 15th, 2020.

Paulo caught a football in the water and watched as his 14k white gold wedding band popped of his finger and into the water. Later in the week Jen had googled list ring and TheRingFinder’s website came up. Jen had called me and I explained there was a registered ring finder a great deal closer to the location. Unfortunately he was not available and recommend me!

I proceeded to met Jen, Paulo and kids on August 22nd, 2020 early morning. The waters were quite rough with an undertow. After grid searching a wide area for about 4 hours, they had to head home. I continued gridding a larger area and went back to a middle further out portion to re-grid. No luck.

This past week the weather was getting cooler and work was hectic. So I decided to book a holiday day off and ventured back down to Long Point on my own. With-in 15 minutes on my second pass back to shore I had an 11/12 on the Minelab Equinox 800 detector 6” down! Pulled the wedding band out on the first scoop!!!!

Then the surprise FaceTime call to Jen!! Check out this video!!

Happy to return this wedding ring to it’s rightful owner and grateful for their donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which Jen & Paulo will receive a tax receipt!! PAYING-IT-FORWARD 🌸💖🌸 ROCKS!! Everyone wins!!

***Kelly had dropped her small gold with diamond earring in the sand while enjoying a family beach party at Newport Beach, CA. This was one of a set of earrings that she had for more than fifteen years. A gift from a special friend and very sentimental to Kelly.

After everybody in their group attempted to find the very small earring. Kelly was given my information by someone who found TheRingFinders directory online.

They were only a couple miles from my home. Parking was provided for me in front of their garage. In the early afternoon it can take an hour to  find parking. I had not questioned them very much on the phone. I just knew it was a small gold diamond earring. I chose to take my XP Deus metal detector with the high frequency coil and a very fine mesh sand scoop. 
I was shown the small 10’x10’ area. This could be a tough one because Kelly told me it was an open earring. Also it could have been buried out of detection range by the others that had moved a lot of sand searching by hand.

It was a few minutes before I received a good signal that could be small gold. YES! Success with Kelly’s earring was in my scoop. Everybody was elated and there were several of the other people on the beach cheered on.

Basically they all just accepted that a metal detector can find earrings in the sand. They don’t know that not all metal detectors can find these small pieces of gold, especially if the earring is open. I know that it wasn’t an easy find. It makes me happy to know I have the best equipment and I have spent hours learning how to be efficient with my state of the art detectors.

Lost wedding rings Carpinteria CA Found!

from Ventura (California, United States)
Contact: 1-805-290-5009

I got a call this morning from Jay whose family was visiting his parents beach house in Carpinteria to escape the heat in Bakersfield. The property is directly on the beach so his kids were having a blast building sand castles and creating forts in the sand and having the time of their lives at grandpa’s house. One of the young’uns decided that they would pretend to be pirates so they grabbed their mom’s wedding ring set and took off for the beach to bury the rings in the sand in true pirate fashion. As would happen 5 year old pirates don’t always remember where they buried things and in this case the young man had actually dropped both rings somewhere he thought in the sand before he could even bury them. Needless to say there were many variables here to finding the rings. We needed to get them back to mom but also important was to get the young pirates out of trouble.

The rings were platinum so I knew what the sound and number would be on my equinox and I took off to finding them. I found the first ring in about 8 inches of sand after the second scoop and then a few minutes later ring number two was back in the scoop. Everyone was ecstatic and the best news was two young pirates were not going to have to walk the plank. Remember if you lose your ring, pendant or necklace in sand, the water or grass call or text me immediately at 805-290-5009.  

Playful Pet Dog Causes a Loss of Sentimental Gold Pendant.. Lakewood, CA.

“I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136

*** Playful pet dog jumped up on owner braking her neckless while sitting on grass. Brenda and her neighbor were walking their dogs in the neighborhood. They stopped at local school front grass lawn to rest. That is where the her friend’s dog accidentally broke her necklace. The very petite gold and diamond heart pendant went flying in the thick deep grass. After several hours they gave up on finding the small sentimental pendant.

Brenda knew how important this pendant was to her friend, so she took it on herself to called me for help. We met the next morning and Brenda told me what had happened giving me a description of the small gold item. I decided to use the same detector I use for platinum and white gold stud earrings. After walking a couple blocks to the location I set my detector to 74 khz. Good choice because the small gold target gave me a solid but just a whisper type signal. The pinpointer I was using couldn’t pick it up. Spreading the grass with my fingers I caught a glimpse of the yellow gold deep thick grass.

Brenda was excited about the find and looking foreword to surprising her friend. It’s nice to meet Brenda who is a special person willing to help her neighborhood friend find her sentimental pendant.

September 9th, 2020: A couple of days ago, Zach was tubing with his wife and sister in-law when his ring was lost. When he realized the ring was dropped, Zach carefully took note of where their party was located using the Huguenot bridge, some logs, and a boulder he could stand on. With rain in the forecast, we decided to meet as early as possible the next day to conduct the search.

When I met Zach, I was very impressed with how well he had observed the location of the ring drop. He drew a very good map with a circle illustrating the location in which he thought the ring landed. It turns out Zach is an Advanced SCUBA diver, and a mechanical engineer. His education really paid off. As I did recover the ring from within that area!!

Zach is a strong swimmer and offered to tow out some of my equipment. He found the boulder and I set an anchor for a modified jack-stay search. The visibility was poor and there was a moderate current. The depth near the bridge varies from 3 to 10 feet. Luckily the search area was about 5 feet deep. I made the first half circle sweep and moved the anchor 15 feet down river. The skies were getting darker and it started to rain. Time was short. I was concerned about safety because of rising water and an increasing current. I was a little more than half way through the second pattern when I heard my Excalibur make that tone indicating platinum! Once I knew where to look, I could see the ring sitting on the bottom. I was so happy to pick it up and hand it to Zach. The look on his face was priceless!

It was fortunate we decided to search sooner rather than later. With the rain, the current was increasing and it would take days to slow back to normal. Zach and I both had that goose-bump feeling that “it was meant to be”!

When Rosie contacted me, she was down on the beach going over the sand where she had been the evening before. She had dropped her iPhone without realizing it, and now was trying to find it. She asked if I could help. I asked her to look at the sand, and tell me if it looked smoothed out, and she said it was. I could tell from her description, that the machines had already gone through, and informed her that the possibility of a recovery was very dismal. She then told me that her Find My iPhone app was showing it still there, so I asked her when was it last updated because it will still show even if it was last updated the day before. She told me that the last update was just 2 minutes ago, and I told her she has to be one of the luckiest people, and let her know I was coming right away, and to not let the machines come through the area again.

When I arrived we found each other, and she showed me where she believed the phone was lost. I could tell the machines had gone through, but they left a ridge of material in the area the phone was lost. I began the search where Rosie had been looking, and then began looking in the ridge of trash. There was a lot of trash metal that I found, but no phone. I then began expanding the search zone. I continued expanding the zone, finding more trash metal, and then I found the phone way outside of the search zone. The phone was actually moved by the machine, but not picked up by it. Rosie was very happy to have it back, and I was happy to be able to help!
