*** Anthony called for help after finding me online. His family and friends were at Emerald Bay in the city of Laguna Beach, CA. His wife Lindsey had taken off her gold and diamond wedding ring setting them on her lap while applying sunscreen on her son. Forgetting the rings were on her lap, she got up to do something and the rings disappeared into the sand. 

She didn’t realize that the rings were missing until about  a half hour after the loss. The location was not very large but after several of the family members tried their luck at finding the rings, Anthony saw this was not working. He wasn’t quite sure, but he figured there should be some type of metal detecting service. A google search pulled up my contact information.

Emerald Bay is a private beach that is only 5 miles from where I live. I’ve done several recoveries at that beach. They do have to set up permission for me to enter through the security gate which Anthony took care of. I cruised in and directly to the beach where about a dozen people were waiting to see how this works. 

Briefly, Lindsey explained to me what had happened, pointing to a small area of sand. She said the two rings were white gold with diamonds. That is all I needed, setting up my new XP Deus 2 metal detector then started a grid search. A few swings Boom! The bi g engagement ring in the scoop.  Two feet away Bam! the wedding ring.. Boom, Bam ! Both rings and many happy people especially Lindsey who had felt guilty for making such a mistake. I assured her that, this happens so often, they won’t believe how many calls we get with this same scenario. I don’t know how many times people give up, because they didn’t know they could find a member of TheRingFinders near them. 

We like the easy searches, there are times when we search for hours before finding the item. If the item is there I have the experience, the equipment and the time to find your valuable. The fact is there are so many variables as to how the loss occurred we can’t tell how long it will take. We have to give credit to the internet and the new technology for these successful searches. Years ago we only had the yellow pages and word of mouth. Now we google search, use our cellphones and  use our GPS, etc.

I WILL TRY ANYWHERE! Call anytime 24/7 for help.. Stan the Metal Detector Man … 949-500-2136

Ring Lost In Okmulgee Found

  • from Broken Arrow (Oklahoma, United States)

Recieved a call Friday couldn’t get to it so figured it was a spam call.  Today 3/20/22 got a text from the same number.  It was the same guy. Will was his name said he lost his ring.  I answered his call this time and he said you fing rings on Sunday’s ?  I said absolutely what can I do for you? He said he was throwing brush below as you can see in the picture.  He thought at first it was in the deep grass.  I started in the grass bout knee high and nothing switched to the shorter grass and asked him were he was searching . So I backed up roughly 5 feet and o man got that sweet tone on my detector and pulled the grass back there it was nice shiny gold ring. Will wasn’t watching so I slipped it on my finger. I kept swinging for a bit and said you’re ring isn’t in the grass.  He looked at me like I was crazy..  He said it has to be.. I said it isn’t in the grass because it’s on my and held up my hand and he went no way.. He said I didn’t see you slip it on your finger. Thanks Will  for calling…..

What a welcome to MBL Woods Hole, MA

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Martin, a new student at MBL, (Marine Biological Laboratory), in Woods Hole, had one heck of an unforgettable first night. Nothing like this would happen in his motherland of Germany. It started with bright blue lights all around him, the kind he will never forget. The light was not in he rear view mirror but rather all around him as he wadded in the waist deep waters of Buzzards Bay. The bio-luminescence comb jellyfish were the source of this light. – see: for more on this unique sea creature.

However, while thoroughly enjoying the moment, a horrifying second moment occurred that left Martin distracted for the next 27 hours. These hours should have been filled with attention to finishing a cardboard boat for the afternoon’s race he was entered in. No the distraction was not a sting from the harmless jellies, but the loss of his wedding band to Neptune’s dark depths. Not the light from the luminescent jellies nor the light from several waterproof cell phone could expose the ring’s hiding place.

What to do next? What else but Google search for “How in H*** do I find my ring in the ocean?” lead Martin to the web site of An e-mail sent at 10:30pm was answered an hour later requesting a bit more information and a promise to call around 10am. At 11am I was in the water waving my magic wand. On the seventh target my scoop was filled with black rocks and a glittering gold ring. YES, it was Martin’s. The search was over. Martin removed the ring from the bed of rocks in my scoop and replaced it where it belonged, on his finger, not swimming around with a bunch of jellies.

Pictures, smiles and stories followed along with many congratulations from fellow beach goers.

PS…Martin’s team won the Cardboard Boat Compitition, all team members had a chance to ride the waves. One heck of a great day for Martin. May continued success continue, forever, in all of your endeavors.

Cape Cod – Ring 3 of 3 return in one day 8/23/17! Gold Wedding Band

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Joe had a wonderful wife until his wedding band went missing at a Dennis, MA beach. Heck it is only a ring, nothing to get too overwhelmed about, it can be replaced. NO, we will get it back, what else would a wonderful wife and mother of two beautiful children do but to get in touch with TheRingFinders and have her husband’s ring returned.

The first night’s search came and went without the desired results. A bit of confusion on my part about not asking more about the location. I thought I know were I was told the loss took place, but there were three paths through the dunes. After searching by the first path I had a doubt that I was at the right one so I moved to the second and after the same results — onto the third. Again no ring. Back at the car where I called for more information…Yes, the first path was the correct one, but the ring may be in the water.

I was glad to head toward the water as the sand was being blown so hard as to sting my bare legs. Unfortunately my search down the slope of the beach and into the wind blown waves also did not reveal the rings hiding place. The next afternoon after finding and returning Meg’s Yale ring I headed back to search further out into the water. This time success was on my side and I found the size 13 ring.

While detecting I noticed a couple hundred people gathering about 150 yards down the beach…what were they doing? Something you usually see only the TV…releasing a sea turtle. Another highlight of my day.
Back to Joe. After waiting for the turtle watchers single file out of the parking lot I left, got home and called Joe, no answer, message left.
Next I had to make was to Keith’s father-in-law who had called 6 minutes before I arrived home. After leaving the message for Joe to call so we could arrange the ring’s return I left for Hyannis. Read my next blog about Keith’s story.

Back home I called Joe again, made arraignments to return the ring. Surprise! Carolyn was now the MOST WONDERFUL wife! The ring’s physical return was made the next morning. Of course smiles were present on all five of our faces, and if any white dust is seen in the photo it is left over Dunkin Donuts treats. Yes a wonderful and sweet, happy ending for all.
