What is it about Stinson Beach? Why does it steal so many people’s rings?
Josh enjoyed a day on the beach with his daughters. As he started to clean up, his ring slipped off his finger and was immediately swallowed by the Stinson Beach sand. He looked for it for over an hour without luck. A couple of weeks later, he found us on TheRingFinders website.
The good news was that Josh had taken three pictures with his phone that showed the family’s location on the beach. When we arrived, we carefully recreated the photos so we could identify the search zone. Then we placed stakes around the search zone, and two of us started a carefull gridded search. After a bit less than an hour, we found Josh’s ring under four or five inches of sand.
Stinson Beach is a very big place, but Josh’s photos led us straight to the right place. If you lose something in the sand, make sure you can identify the exact location with landmarks, photos, or better yet, GPS coordinates from your phone.

Thank you again, so much. My family was also blown away that you found it.
I think it is so awesome that you are able to share your hobby with your daughter, and she can experience a selfless way of making people happy.
Quick story of why my ring is so important to me. My parents always had very simple gold bands as wedding rings. My dad never took his off. I was pretty young when it was at a point that he could not get it off anymore, and it was just a few years ago that after wearing it for 30 + years that he finally had to cut it off.
I think that now I have worn my ring for 10 years. All the great things my wife and I have experienced together and the family we have created. I was wearing my wedding ring when my kids were born, when they took there first steps, the first stitches, when I taught them to ride a bike, the first day of school. I hated to loose it and now I will be wearing it for all the “firsts” yet to come.
A couple weeks ago i was detecting my favorite pond when i recovered this gold class ring. After enlisting family and friends i was able to find her, and she still lived in the area. I called her work and told her what i had and she seemed very puzzled that i had her ring. I went to her work this morning and gave her the ring. She still seemed very surprised that i gave it to her. After a thank you and a picture i left hoping that it brightened up her day.

I received a call a young lady. She said she had lost her gold diamond pendant. It was given to her from her boyfriend. She said she had lost it while she was riding her horse. She had been jumping her horse in the outdoor area plus the inside one.She said it could be anywhere even the barn. I told her I would start on the out door arena around all the jumps first and grid the whole area. It was a very hot day about 30 degrees.I started finding lots of stuff but it was a lot of nails which I picked up so the horses wouldn’t pick them up. I hunted for about 3 hours about to give up and I thought I would give it about another half hour. Just about the last couple of minutes bam I found it.So I went the the indoor arena where she was teaching young riders. She came over ans asked if I found it I showed her all the metal and nails.She looked sad and said thanks for trying.Then I showed her the gold diamond pendant she screamed your my hero I’m so happy thank you so so much. Well another successful hunt and a very happy girl. Kevin Niefer Ring Finders Calgary Alberta

This guy is one happy husband. While out having a smoke out on the back deck he tossed his cigarret but into to snow and off went his wedding ring. He went and searched for a long time in the snow and was unable to find the ring. I recieved a call from Clarance in a panic had to find his ring out he would be in the dog house with his wife. He asked me if I could go and find it.He explained he was at work and couldn’t get away.He told me the area where it might be. I headed ver right away and when I arrived I could see all the foot steps in the snow where he was looking.I started doing a grid and in about ten minutes I found the gold weddding band. I hoped in my car and headed over to his work.He asked if I found it.I held up the ring and asked him does it look like this.He oh way baby that’s it. H e couldn’t thanks me enough. As you can see how happy he was after I returned the ring to him. Good thing or he would have been sleeping out side.
It was early Sunday morning I received a call I guy lost a ring. He left a message telling me he lost his dad’s wedding band.I guess he lost it in the back yard while shooting hockey pucks with his son. He had just put it on the night before had it in a box for the last year and a half since his dad had past away.On the Friday night while out with friends his buddy was telling him how he wore his dad’s ring on a necklace around his neck to remember his dad.He liked that Idea so he just put his dad’s ring on his pinkie finger. Then that next day while playing with the kids the ring fell off.He looked for a long time couldn’t find it.He wasn’t sure if the lost it in the front yard backyard or if it went over next door.I called him back and headed out to his home.I got him to show me the area where he might of lost it. I guess the night before he couldn’t even sleep he was just sick to stomach.
The ring meant a lot to him and he had to find it. I searched the yard for about a half hour and found the ring for him.This guy was one happy dude after that.His dad had a big impact 0n him and the ring was one way to remember his dad. I was so glad to recover the gold wedding band / ring and return it to him. Kevin Niefer Calgary Alberta Canada
I always say everyones lost jewelry has a story attached to it and everyone’s story is different. This young lady lost a silver locket that was given to her by her grandmother, it was lost in the sand at Kits Beach and she didn’t realize that she lost it until she got home that evening. How do you replace something so special that was given to you by someone so special?The best thing this young lady did was post on the lost & found on the craigslist and then reply to my email. I just sent the info on my service called ”The Ring Finders” and said I could help. She told her mother and they took a look at my directory/website and made the call.After discussing the search I was on my way to the beach to meet them both and look for her locket. I knew that there was a chance that another treasure hunter could have found it before me, I contacted a friend that I know searches Kits Beach and he said he didn’t find it so I felt like we had a chance. After just 20 minutes of searching the area that the locket could have been in… I found it…Funny thing was it wasn’t in the area I was searching. She received a text message from a friend that sent her a picture of where they were sitting and she showed me a reference marker between two benches and two garbage cans.While I walked up to take a look at the text message I got a signal and kicked the sand to see her silver locket…The story of her locket continues and I was so happy that I could find it for her. Thank you for the kind reward! I love my job! Lost something? Call me ASAP! You can watch the video of the search below… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=au6icMKEzTM
Two days ago, I received a call from Andrea, who was vacationing at a beach house in South Kingstown with her husband and three young sons. Andrea explained that she had lost her diamond ring while playing football in the water two days earlier. She was so upset about it that she had lost sleep and asked for my help. When I arrived at the beach house, we took a small boat across a salt water pond and followed a path to get to the ocean beach where the ring had been lost. I searched for two and a half hours in the surf. When I emerged with the ring on my little finger, Andrea was so surprised and delighted! Her husband was shocked. He was so certain that it couldn’t be found that he had made a bet with his son, a bet I’m sure he wasn’t upset about losing! The best part was when their youngest son turned to me and said, “Thank you for finding my mom’s ring.”

August 10 while having an SRARC board meeting, a call came in for a lost ring on St. Pete Beach. Elizabeth Filimonovic explained that she had set her husband Nemo’s wedding band on his shirt that was lying on the sand. When he picked up the shirt the ring was lost in the sand. Tom Jones, Joe Szemer, Andrew Szemer and Mike Miller went to the beach at 10:30 pm. The team got to the beach and found the ring within the first 10 seconds after the hunt started.
The following evening the ring was returned to the happy couple. Upon meeting Elizabeth and Nemo, the comment was made, “Nemo, as in Captain Nemo?” Elizabeth replied, “No, as in Finding Nemo.”
