Bentley was proposing to his fiance on Poplar Beach this morning, when Max the dog jumped up and knocked the ring into the air. It vanished into the sand. Bentley used his smartphone to locate the Ringfinders, and I arrived 30 minutes later.

Recovered: 1 carat, pear shaped diamond, of very high clarity and color, which is surrounded by approximately 32 small brilliant diamonds of similar quality, set in a classic Tiffany style platinum setting. Beautiful, brand new ring, never worn, until recovered today. I had the honor of handing the ring to the bride to be.

 

Best wishes for your continued good taste and good luck Bentley!

CurtisHMB-smile-smCurtis and his wife spent their one-year wedding wedding anniversary at Half Moon Bay, between San Francisco and Santa Cruz on the California coast. Sitting up on a sand bluff at the State Beach, they popped a cork on a bottle of champagne and enjoyed the view. When it came time to leave Curtis stood up, brushed the sand off his pants, and felt his wedding ring fly off his finger into the sand.

They search fruitlessly for the ring in the sand, even using a metal detector they borrowed from the park ranger. Curtis came back the next day with a shovel and kitchen strainer and sifted big piles of sand, but still couldn’t find the ring. The situation was looking grim until they found TheRingFinders web site.

I met Curtis at the beach today. He showed me exactly where they were sitting, about halfway up the steep sand bluff. The small open area where they had been sitting was surrounded by ice plant. I could see the piles of sand that Curtis had made with his shovel the day before.

I used my metal detector to thoroughly search the area where they had been sitting. The sand was shallow here, because Curtis had already dug down to the hardpan layer. Next I expanded out to the surrounding ice plant. I only found one metal hit anywhere near where they had been sitting, just a piece of an old aluminum can.

I knocked down the piles of sand that Curtis had made, but didn’t find the ring, so I started working my way down the bluff. About 20 minutes into the hunt, I got just my second metal hit of the day. It was very deep, about 8 inches down, and registered as an older, pure copper penny, but when I finally dug down deep enough there was Curtis’s ring. His first anniversary was saved!

Although he lost his ring up where he is standing, near the top of the bluff, we found it about six feet down the bluff where my metal detector is lying.

It's a very nice ring! Good thing we found it.

Lost Ring Found in Half Moon Bay

 

Jenna and her family were enjoying the beach at Fitzgerald Marine Preserve near Half Moon Bay. But when they were getting ready to leave, her husband’s ring flew off his finger as he was brushing away sand. He heard it hit the sand, but could not find it anywhere.

We met Jenna at the beach the next day. She knew exactly where they had been sitting, and where her husband had lost the ring. So we drew lines in the sand to mark our search area.

Then something amazing happened-as I dragged my metal detector along the beach to draw a line, it pushed something bright and shiny out of the sand. It was the ring. Jenna had put us in exactly the right location, because the ring was at the edge of the search area, right in the center of the side of the rectangle.

This has never happened to us before-we didn’t even get to turn on our metal detectors. But we found the ring because Jenna knew the exact location where it had been lost. When you find the ring, it really doesn’t matter how you do it!
