*** Kristal had been married less than a month before losing her white gold diamond wedding ring. She lives in an apartment complex with a nice work out gymnasium near the pool. She walked the half block from her apartment to do a routine exercise session. She had not left her new wedding at her residence, so she wrapped it in her face mask putting in a hand bag. Her idea was protect it from being scratched.

After exercising she walked back to the apartment along a sidewalk. She had been holding the face mask in her hand but didn’t put it on. When she got back home the ring was missing.

One week of checking the grass along the sidewalk, reporting the loss to management, the gardeners, community online forum and posting flyers the ring was still missing.

Kristal called me saying that I was her last hope. We met and she walked me through where she had been when the ring disappeared. The first thing I told her was we are beginning the search now as we walk the path she took that evening. We got to a street crossing and she didn’t want to go any further. I asked that she show me the entire route to make sure I can clear the grassy hiding places. I had not set up to use my metal detector.

As we walked, we visually spotted the white gold diamond wedding ring on the surface of the grass. It had survived the lawnmower and many people that could have easily spotted it. Kristal was more than elated, a very happy and amazed young bride. She told me that she’d  never forget this moment.

This has happened several times where we spot the missing item on the initial walk through. What made this different was that it was lying there for over a week and she said, she had probably walked passed it 20 times. Also, it was a very public area with lots of foot traffic. Moral to the story, “Don’t give up just before the miracle happens

 *** Dan and his wife live 60 miles from Dana Point, CA. Their favorite get a way place is Salt Creek Beach which is an Orange County, CA. Beach Park. 

He called me asking for help to find his wife’s wedding ring. Most likely lost in the sand. He described it as a small size 3-1/2 white gold ring with small diamonds half way around the ring. 

He said he could drive to the beach later that afternoon. I was ready to get on the road to begin the search a couple hours before he could meet me. We agreed that I could start the search earlier using a marked up Google map screen shot. At the beach, timing is number one priority. It’s also very important that someone can guide me to the general location. Most the time when people leave the area of the loss, it’s confusing to find the exact area. 

As it worked out I had another call to take care of and I was still able to meet Dan at Salt Creek Beach later that afternoon. The beach goers we’re clearing out which makes it easier to properly grid search thoroughly. He showed me approximately where they had been. I started at the north end, working south. After an hour I was nearing the end of the site he gave me. He then said it could have been more to the south. That was a good move because I got a small white gold ring signal after three more passes. Amazing to see such a small ring in my scoop. These type rings can be missed by many detectors especially in the sand.

Dan was about losing hope but I got to see his big smile and excitement when he picked the ring out of the scoop. A great day at the beach.

**** Faye and her husband Riley were at Huntington City Beach, Orange County, CA. with their two young sons. She had lost her wedding ring near their beach blanket after removing it to apply sun screen.. The area of the loss should have been in a 20’x20’ area.

They had another person with a metal detector searched the location with no success. I was called, asking if I was close enough to help. Fortunately I was just a mile away and was at the location within 15 minutes. 

When I arrived Riley described the ring as a small white gold woman’s wedding ring that had small diamonds 3/4 around the band. These can be elusive especially if laying on edge in the sand. Then they did recall two incidents where she went outside the original search site.

They had been searching for several hour by now. As I completed 5 passes of my grid, Riley got a call from his wife who was waiting in the car a the parking lot. She told Riley that this was ”MisSion Impossible ” she was ready to give up and go home.

At the very same moment I dug the signal discovering her wedding ring in my sand scoop. He was elated, then without calling his wife, we walked over to the parking lot. He approached the car not saying a word. He held up the ring for Faye to see. Boom! her eyes lit up then the tears of joy started to flow. We still didn’t under stand why the first detector missed the ring. The ring was recovered and back where it belongs.The important thing was the ring was found. . A very happy couple and it was a pleasure to be a available to help them..

**** I was called to help Ella find her engagement ring that she thought may have been lost at Laguna Beach, CA.

Ella and her fiancé had been staying at a hotel on the beachfront. The weather had been a bit chilly, keeping people off the beach. Ella regularly works out with a hula hoop, so she thought it would be nice to work out on the beach with her hula hoop. She was sure her engagement ring was on before walking to the beach. After returning to the room she discovered her heirloom engagement ring was missing. The situation involved walking to and from the beach plus an hour and a half of walking two or three blocks at waterline of the beach.

I met her shortly after she called me. We were fortunate that the tide was receding. It was going to be raining so I came prepared with rain gear. We were not quite sure that the ring had been lost at the beach area, but that was where she did the most physical activity. I told Ella that if the ring was there, I could find it. If it didn’t show up we can eliminate that area, so she can check the other locations she had been.

Ella couldn’t stay, which was a good thing. I knew that this was going to be a long search. After three and a half hours, there was just a small area remaining. I was already trying to think of what I would text Ella. Then I got a strong signal that turned out to be Ella’s ring. I was surprised and happy that I could send a successful recovery text with a photo of the ring. 

She replied right away saying she had given up hope and had figured I didn’t stay to search in the rain. We met two days later when she had time to pick up the ring. This was my first hula hoop ring loss and recovery. What’s next?

… John and his wife were enjoying their last day of their vacation at Santa Monica Beach, CA. He stood up near their blanket in the dry sand brushing sand off his leg, when his gold wedding ring went flying into the sand.

He was able to locate me online at TheRingFinders website. I made arrangements to meet him at the location  Our main concern was that he had to catch a flight back to Denver, Colorado soon. He might only have 15 minutes to show me the area of the loss. I suggested that he mark the spot with some markers and continue to grab into the sand. There was always a chance that traffic could delay my arrival.

I parked very close to our meeting place. They were still at the location. It was one of those quick recoveries because John called me shortly after the accidental loss and he stayed at the location. All searches are not this easy but we at TheRingFinders know how to conduct a proper search using the most efficient metal detecting equipment. 

John and his wife were able to catch their flight home with his wedding ring on his finger.

Huntington Beach Volleyball Player Lost Sentimental Military ID Tag in Sand .. Called The Ring Finders Directory for Help

*** Leor had lost a military dog tag while playing volleyball at Huntington State Beach. It had belonged his father and he wears it everyday. It was very sentimental to him. Leor had noticed his broken chain before leaving the sand volleyball court. He and his friends search by hand without finding it.

Leor was driving home to San Diego when he called me. We discussed the circumstances of the loss which gave me hope that I could find the metal ID tag. There are about 20 volleyball courts in this area of the beach. He told me it had to be a court number 15. 

I was able to get to the beach soon after the call. It wasn’t necessary to have Leor at the site. When I arrived there were a group of 10 or 12 players practicing on that court and I didn’t want to ask them to let me search. When they finished I began to grid the court. Then I was informed they were not finished playing. I courteously came off the court. While waiting for another shot at the sandy court, I search to sideline areas around the boundaries. Eight feet outside the court on the opposite side where Leor had felt the loss occurred, I found the missing SS metal military ID tag. I was basically using up time waiting to get back to the search zone. It was definitely a surprise to me but we do know how many recoveries happen when we search outside the box.

Leor was more than excited when I called him with the good news. He arranged for his friend, Ben to pick up this ID tag. Ben did tell me how much this item means to Leor. This is what makes my day.

Lost Gold Ring in the Sand at Newport Beach, CA. .. Found at the Fire Pits in the Dark

**** On our Southern California beaches it’s popular to spend the evenings sitting on the sand at the fire pits. This call was from Patrick’s friend, who had found me on TheRingFinder website. They had spent a couple hours enjoying sitting around a fire at Newport Beach,CA. As they started to leave, Patrick picked up his towel and brushed sand off with his hand. He felt his ring slip off his finger into the sand.

After a half hour searching the small area, they were frustrated with their unsuccessful attempts to find the ring. It was getting cold and they had to be home soon. I was able to meet them on the beach which is less than three miles from my home.

It only took a few minutes after setting up my detector to find the ring. Patrick and his friend were happy to have the ring recovered and able to get on their way home. I love these quick recoveries. From the time I left the house till I got home was less than an hour. That includes taking photos for the book of smiles. All ring calls are not this easy. This year I had one ring search in the Mojave desert 135 miles away and it was 104 degrees. Then I had another 100 mile drive with a 3 hour hike to a hot springs for a ring lost in the water. Both of these searches were unsuccessful. We don’t get all of them. I still can’t wait till the next call out. They are always a new adventure and so rewarding to make another smile.

Bella had been at Santa Monica Beach with her friends. She went into the water not realizing that she was still wearing her Cartier watch. It was actually an hierloom that her mother had passed down to Bella. 

She was out about waist deep water with small waves when she felt the watch slip off her wrist. The tide was beginning to come up. On the Southern California beaches we get high tides that range between 4.5ft to 6.5ft. high. The tides raise approximately one foot an hour. 

When I received the call I knew the water level could be too high to do a proper search. My priority was to get to the location before Bella left the beach. This may take two trips to do a proper search. I only discuss the general idea if the loss occurred in the dry sand or water and if they can stay at the location till I arrive. For beach losses it’s more important to get on the road and meet the people before they have to leave. 

I was at the Santa Monica beach location within an hour of Bella’s call for help. The tide was rising and I was hoping that she had been wrong about how deep she was when the watch slipped off her wrist. It’s really hard to judge how deep you are in the surf with 3 or 4ft. waves.

I went directly into the surf with my waterproof metal detector. It wasn’t necessary to go into the crashing waves as I was pretty sure I would have a better chance to find the watch the next day at a lower tide.

Within fifteen minutes I got my first good signal and BOOM!! One very sentimental gold Cartier watch was in my scoop.

Bella, her friends and all the people on the beach were excited, amazed and joyful that the watch was saved and not lost forever.

*** When Jenn called me for help to find a lost rose gold ring in the sand at Bolsa Chica State Beach I assumed it was going to be an easy search. Usually, if the people haven’t left the beach it can be a quick recovery. Most important is to get to the location before they leave.

I met Jenn and her husband Eric shortly after talking to Jenn on the phone. After discussing the loss of Eric’s rose gold ring, I knew this was going to take some time. They had been at the beach for more than 4 hours and Eric had not felt the ring come off his finger. To top it off he had been in the ocean. Most the time was spent on the dry sand near their blanket and umbrella. Then he had helped build a sand castle half way between the upper towel line and the water. 

I did a quick swing over the blanket area then went into the water to waist deep water while the tide was low. Next I jumped over to the area around the sand castle project. No Find! After the concentrating on the most likely spots i began a tight grid search to and from the damp sand to the incoming water line.

Bingo! The ring was found after more than an hour of thorough searching in the wet sand. It was a large search area but I only had to do less than I expected to grid search. Nobody that was there would have guessed that the ring would be where it was found.

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost in Backyard Shrubbery.. Silverlake District of Downtown Los Angeles, CA. … Recovered by Metal Detector Man

Christina found me after a google search. She asked me if I could check her floor heater vent for a ring she lost a year ago. She had the heater company look with a camera several months ago. This was an area I couldn’t use a metal detector and I’m sure the heater people had a good camera for inspection of heat ducts. Basically I told her I couldn’t do that type search after professional heater service had already looked.

Then Kristina told me that there was another ring lost in the shrubbery of her back yard. Her husband’s platinum wedding band had come off his finger last week while waving his arms. He felt the ring come off but it had to land in the landscaping shrubs because they never heard it hit the deck or cement sidewalk.

I met Kristina the next morning and she showed me both locations. I did another camera inspection of the heater vent without success. Also crawled under the bathroom floor to feel what vent ducts looked like. I advised her that the duct could be easy disconnect for a better search. I will not do that, just don’t need to liable for any damages heater system.

Next I started to use my Deus metal detector in the planter on the side of a backyard slope. I did get a faint signal but the 5”x 7” coil head could not get into the thick overgrowth. I pulled out my Garrett Pinpointer taped it to a 5 ft. pole. Probing into the thick growth I got a strong signal in the same area that the Deus had sounded off. A quick look into the bushes allowed me see a round platinum ring in the dried leaves at the base of plants. Boom! Successful recovery for Kristina and her husband. Than you for calling TheRingFinders and trusting me to search for your valuable and sentimental keepsake.
