Tobi called on July 6th, 2 days after losing her platinum and diamond wedding ring. She felt it fly off when throwing a ball to her kids. Luckily, she heard it hit a landscape timber. That really narrowed the search area. Carrie and I jumped in the truck and drove the 40 miles to her house. Within 10 minutes, Sid got a strong 47 reading on his Garrett AT PRO. Right below the surface was the beautiful ring. After reuniting Tobi and her ring, we cooled down while having a nice visit with Tobi and her dad. Loaded up the truck and headed home. Thank you Tobi for your generous reward!

Back at the beginning of the year she was having fun with a snow ball fight in her back yard. During the throwing and tossing of snowballs her wedding ring became missing.  She thought that she lost the ring while she was taking off her gloves to clean her glasses. She and friends looked throughout the yard without any luck. Then she found myself though TheRingFinder.com website and was happy that someone was in the area and still finding rings for others. After searching the area, there was the ring tuck down under the grass. She was very happy to have the ring back.

Diamond Ring Found… Seal Beach, CA.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Annika called me at 11:30am , just as I was leaving my place to go metal detecting. I was able to meet her at 12 noon it was only  a 14 mile  drive. She was in Seal Beach and had lost her diamond wedding ring while teaching a fitness class on the beach. This is her regular job and she always puts her rings in a zippered pocket in her workout pants. This time she had not zipped it totally closed and one of her rings fell out into the sand while doing some of the exercises. It was lost in an area about half the size of a football field.  I started  in the middle of the field and began a spiral type grid. It took an hour and a half to locate the beautiful ring. Everyone was happy and there were plenty of smiles.  This was another time we beat the city sand sifting machine to get the ring..

Today Prarthna called me from New Jersey. She and her husband visited California last week and had a wonderful time. On the way back to San Francisco International Airport they stopped at the beach on Half Moon Bay. It was there in the deep sand that Prarthna felt her diamond wedding ring slip off her finger.

This was not a typical wedding ring, either. Prarthna’s husband had studied diamonds and hunted for four months to find the perfect stone, then had the ring custom made for the stone. The ring had great sentimental value to both of them.

Late this afternoon, I met her friend Navdeep who had been at the beach with them the day the ring was lost. He showed me where Prarthna had been walking when the ring slipped off her finger. We marked a search zone in the sand, and most importantly, he climbed up a hill to sit at the same bench he was sitting at when she lost it. Using a hardy bush growing in the sand as a landmark, he directed me to stand on the sight line where he remembered seeing Prarthna. The intersection of the search zone and this line of sight identified the place where he felt the ring most likely landed.

I carefully gridded the search zone and triple searched it without luck. The sand was very clean, suggesting that other metal detector users had already cleared out the pull tabs, bottle caps and other metallic trash  that we find at most beaches. But I did find four coins, so we remained hopeful.

Next I started searching south from the search zone, not far off the sight line. On my first pass, I got a low tone that usually means aluminum or gold. This time it was Prathna’s ring, four inches deep in the sand. Look at the photo below, you can see how beautiful it is. Navdeep had done a good job showing me where to search. Prarthna was very happy when we called her with the news that we had found her ring.

Lost Wedding Ring Found in Larkspur

Wayne contacted us a few days ago to say that his wife Rosie had lost her wedding ring while gardening. She’d been pulling weeds, amending the soil, and planting new plants when she discovered the ring was missing. This was strange, because the ring fit snugly on her finger, and had never come off before. They had tried using a metal detector, but couldn’t find the ring anywhere.

When we arrived, Rosie showed us the front garden plot. It wasn’t large, perhaps 30 feet by 2 feet. We were concerned about whether our larger metal detectors would work, because there were railroad ties forming the front border of the plot, and a wall along the back side, and both contained screws and other embedded iron fasteners.

So we started by scanning the plot quickly with a handheld metal detector called a pinpointer. We found about a dozen nails and sprinkler parts, but no ring. Now we knew the top layer of soil was mostly clear of metal, but we still had the screws along the front and back to contend with.

We scanned the bed again with a larger metal detector set to discriminate out, or ignore, most iron. This is a tricky process, because if you tell the detector to discriminate out too much iron, you will lose the ability to find smaller gold targets like rings. But we had to be able to ignore those pesky screws.

It worked. About 5-6 inches deep in the soil, buried under one of the new plants, we found the ring. It’s a beauty, inset with black diamonds, one of the most unique rings we’ve recovered. Rosie was very happy to get it back.
