Tungsten Wedding Band Lost in the Sand – Found and Returned Myrtle Beach SC

from North Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-843-655-5889

James called me about 5:30pm tonight saying he lost his wedding band in the sand and wondered if I was available to help find it. While we were talking I found out the resort they were staying at was in Myrtle Beach which is TRF Matt Fry’s area. I called Matt and he told me to go ahead and take the call.

Got to the location in about 25 minutes and met James and his wife Angelia on the beach who are vacationing with their family from Canada. James pointed out the area and I started my grid search. About half way through my second pass I get the “tone”. Bingo, dug a scoop and saw his ring laying in the sand, picked it up, blew it off and handed it back to James. Their excitement of getting his ring back is what it’s all about.

James and Angelia, thank you very much for trusting in me to help find your ring and your generous gift. Have a very safe trip home tomorrow!!

Lost wedding ring New Smyrna Beach, Florida…..found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Last November 3rd I wrote a short story about Shawn loosing a ring at New Smyrna Beach and how I was able to find it for him. Come to find out that his good friend Zack, lost his wedding ring that very same day, at the very same beach! Shawn, Zack and another close friend had taken a day off to relax and as they finished their lunch at the Breakers Restaurant they decided to throw the football around in the shallow part of the surf. (Does this story sound familiar?) The third friend decided to remove his wedding ring and leave it in the car, despite the lighthearted objections of Shawn and Zack. And guess who ends up loosing their rings?
So after returning Shawn’s ring to him that evening, I find out that Zack had lost his ring as well! That next day I was able to return to the beach and after a one hour grid search–a little to the north of where Shawn’s ring was found–up pops Zack’s wedding ring. Three guys at the beach and two of them loose their rings! What are the chances? And the best part of the whole story is–they both got them back! And I am still waiting for Zack to send me his photo–so in the meantime–my smiley face will have to do!
Lost your bling? Give me a ring!

Erika emailed me Friday night to see if I could help her find her wedding ring she lost the day before at the beach in Malibu, CA. I arranged to meet her there the next morning. This ring had been her great grandmother’s ring, so it had an extreme sentimental value to her. Because it had been gone for 2 days made the possibility, of a recovery just a little more difficult, but it seemed to be a possibility because of where she believed she lost it (not in an area of where the county beach machines clean).

I got to location at the arranged time, and looked around waiting for Erika. I received an email from her that she would be later than the set time, so I asked her where she had been on the beach, and what happened to lose the ring when we talked a little later on the phone. I started my hunt where I understood her directions to start. I apparently wasn’t listening properly, because I started on the opposite side. I started finding an assortment of things, as well as some coins. About a half an hour later I got to the area she had been sitting in and ran one grid line. I was about half way through the second line when I looked down and saw what looked like a gold band sticking out of the sand. I reached down, and pulled out this beautiful diamond ring. This ring had been there for 2 days, in a high traffic area, sticking out of the sand, and not found by anyone else. It was meant to go back to Erika!

I took the ring and placed it on my little finger’s first digit, with the diamonds towards the inside of my hand. It wasn’t 2 minutes later that Erika walked up. She looked at me and saw my progress in the sand, and then asked the ‘not so sure’ question, “no luck huh?”. I then opened my hand, and said, “you mean like this?”. She was instantly overcome with disbelief and joy. As we were talking later, she stated in question form, that ” you really like making people’s day don’t you?”, and I thought, yes that is exactly it!

I received a call a couple of days ago from Shilpa about two of her rings she lost earlier in the day at the beach. One of the rings was her platinum wedding band, and the other was an heirloom ring that had been in the family for a long time. I was able to go right away, and was there in about 20 minutes.

When I arrived, she told me that she had been on her towel and took her rings off to apply sunscreen. Later she got up to go, and shook out her towel. It wasn’t long after that she realized she had left her rings on the towel when she lifted it up and shook the sand off. I got ready and began my search. I walked a couple of grid lines when Shilpa directed me closer to where she believed she shook the towel. I then swung a couple of times and got a good signal, the heirloom ring was in the scoop. swung once more, and the wedding band was in the scoop. She was so happy to have them back, and I was so happy to have been a part of being able to help her. Great day!

Lost Wedding Ring at New Symrna Beach, Florida……Found!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Shawn sent me a short e-mail stating that he lost his white gold wedding band at the beach and ended by saying, “This has caused great problems!” I responded the next morning and assured him that I would definitely try and help him find his ring. I asked a few questions about the details and what he remembered about where, when and how he felt he might have lost it. Shawn said that he and two of his best friends had lunch at the Breakers Restaurant in New Symrna Beach and afterwards headed out onto the beach to throw the football around and enjoy the water. It wasn’t long before Shawn realized that his wedding ring was missing. He desperately started walking back and forth looking along the waters edge to see if he could catch a glimpse of his gold ring. He even coaxed a few good hearted strangers to assist in the search but to no avail!
Before going home Shawn was able to file a report with the beach patrol–just in case someone found his ring and turned it in.
Later that night Shawn found theringfinders.com web site and sent me his first e-mail. It took four hours anddscf25771dscf2573-001 two searches to narrow down the exact area where Shawn and his buddies were tossing the football, but after doing a very tight grid search pattern I was finally able to uncover his ring. I immediately called Shawn and told him I had found his ring and he could not believe it! We met later that evening and he was almost speechless that someone he had never met before would actually look for, find and return his ring to him.
It was truly an honor and privilege to help reunite Shawn with his lost wedding ring!
Maybe you’ve lost something!
Call me or send me an e-mail—ASAP!

Valerie Contacted me yesterday about the loss of her wedding ring. I was available, and told her I would be there in 30 minutes. She had taken the ring off so she could go into the water, and when trying to place it in her phone case, it fell into the sand. When she had traveled a little while in the sand towards the water she looked again, and her ring was gone.She started to look in the most obvious place in the sand with her fingers, but the expanse of sand was so great it looked like a hopeless cause. She found me on TheRingFinders.com web site, and gave me a call.

When I got there, I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area, but when Valerie explained to me what happened, I realized the area was rather large. I began my search where she had begun hers thinking she had the best idea of where the ring might have fallen into the sand. No luck with that, so I kept expanding out from that area all the way back to the area she had removed her ring, about 2 1/2 hours; nothing but a bunch of bottle caps, and a few coins. I then decided to do a cross grid, knowing that sometimes a ring may sound off in a different passing of the detector’s coil over the area. We both knew the ring was there from her experience, so the cross grid was the only answer. About 20 minutes later I got a solid hit in the earphones, and had her ring in the scoop. It was so good to see Varerie’s excitement when I held up her ring as she ran over to receive it. It is such a joy to restore the joy in others. Persistence is the key in some of these searches, so don’t forget to make sure the ground is covered completely when doing a search.

I got to help a fellow local surfer find his lost ring. I received an email from Jason explaining that he had lost his ring just 2 hours earlier, and was wondering if I could help him. I was available, and said I would be there withing half an hour to perform the search. He had the ring in the pocket of his board shorts, and when he went to get it, the ring snapped off of the cover flap, and flung itself into the sand.

When I got to the beach, Jason met me, and we walked to the spot of the loss. His marks from digging in the sand were still visible which helped to locate the area he believed the ring to have gone. It took about 5 minutes to find Jason’s ring, mainly because he had brought me close to where he lost it, and because he got with me not long after the loss. It is so important to get someone out to help search as soon as you can so as to not have any outlying circumstances make it harder to find or be gone for good (waves and tide, county mechanical beach sifter cleaners, or other metal detectorists).

I was able to give Jason his ring back, a ring he had gotten in Hawaii with his girlfriend, so it held special significance to him. it was great to see his smile.

I happened to be surfing again yesterday, and after my morning session, I got back to my car to find a message from Olivia regarding the loss of her husband’s wedding ring when they were at the beach the day before. I got right back with her to let her know that I would be available to search for the ring as soon as I dropped my surfboard off and picked up my equipment. We agreed to meet at a specific time, so I rushed home to get ready.

We met at the beach, and Olivia explained how there was a miscommunication between her and her husband Tim after he asked for some of the items that he gave to her to hold while he went into the water, the ring being one of the items. The result was that after they got home, and Tim was ready to go to work, he asked for his ring, and it wasn’t there. They then figured , it must have dropped into the sand when he was handed his things. They found me on TheRingFinders.com web site and made the call. When I got to the spot, I could see that the sand was smoothed out from the beach sifters, and realized that the ring having been lost the previous day, might not be there. I did tell them though that although it doesn’t look real good for a recovery, I always have hope. After asking some questions I began my search. I searched for about 1 1/2 hours, and then began to work the other side of the area closer to the slope, when I found Tim’s ring.

Tim and Olivia had been sitting under an umbrella in some sand chairs while I searched, so when I turned with Tim’s ring in my hand, they were both gone. I looked up and down the beach, and saw neither one of them, so I started walking towards the place where they had been sitting, when I saw that Tim was lying on a towel next to the chairs. When I got to him I could see that he was deep in sleep, and I felt kind of bad that I was going to wake him to let him know I found his ring. I spoke to Tim and he awoke. I showed him the ring to make sure that it was the one he lost and he acknowledged it was. He then figured out that Olivia had gone to the car in the parking lot to get something, and went to give her the good news. It was so wonderful to see the two of them coming back to the site with smiles all around. They had just celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary last week, what a blast!

In Olivia’s Words:

Yesterday, Tim gave me his wedding ring to hold in my purse while he went in the ocean, along with his keys, watch and phone. When we were getting ready to leave, I thought he said let me get my things. But it turns out he only wanted his keys. I pulled out all his things including his ring and thought he took all his things. Until that evening when I was in bed and he was getting ready to go to work and he asked me for his ring…. **Gasp*** what do you mean? I gave it to you at the beach…. so his platinum Tiffany ring was left somewhere in Will Roger’s State Beach…. In stepped Steve Smith from theringfinders.com. I called him at noon after I conducted a search for metal detectors. He was worried that it was a day later and after the clean up of the beach. But he said not to lose hope. I never lose hope. It’s a strength and a weakness I suffer with. But guess what, after only 1.5 hours the impossible happened and he found the ring!!!!! Thanks Steve!

Yesterday, not long after finding the ring for Keith, I received a call from DJ who said his wife had lost her engagement ring at the beach just two hours earlier. I asked if they were still there, he said they were not, but some of his wife’s friends were still at the spot. I then asked if they could meet me there, and he said his wife would go and make sure she could show me where the loss occurred.

I was able to get there in about an hour, and walked out to meet Katie, DJ’s wife. She showed me to the area where the ring was lost, and as we got closer, I could see lines in the sand over a rather large area where they had performed a continuous grid search. I could tell they had been very meticulous in their search, but to no avail. I began to question her about the loss, and as she explained everything to me, I could tell that they had searched the wrong area. I began my search in the spot that I figured the loss occurred from my inquisition, and within about 5 minutes I was able to pull a 2 1/2 carat diamond solitaire engagement ring in a platinum setting out of my scoop to Katie’s shock, and the shouts of success from the friends and other beach goers that knew of the situation.

What a joy to bring joy to those in despair over the loss of something so meaningful in their lives, as you can see from Katie’s smile, and the communication I had with DJ after the recovery. The other important fact in this story is that Katie and DJ will be celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary in a week. What a great job!

I had spent the morning surfing yesterday at a local beach, and had just come out of the water when I checked my phone to see that I had received a text from Keith. He was wondering if I could help him find his wedding band that he had lost the previous day. I told him that I had to go and drop off my board and gather my equipment, and that I would meet him at the spot in an hour.

When I arrived Keith was waiting. He explained that he had taken the ring off to go into the water, and have his child come in closer to shore, because they had paddled out too far for his liking. He put the ring on the beach chair on a towel, but when he got back the towel was moved, and the ring was gone. They looked but were unable to find it. One of his children mentioned that he should buy a metal detector to search for it, but Keith figured that he had seen a lot of guys detecting the beaches, and thought that there might be someone who might be able to help him, so he turned to the Internet, and did a search where he was able to locate my number. That was a good thing because the area he was looking is so highly mineralized, it would have caused any inexpensive detector to false constantly.

I began my search, and then readjusted my detector to accommodate for the conditions, put the coil back down just bit lower in the search area when I got a good report from the machine. I put my scoop in, and there it was. I pulled it out to Keith’s surprise. It truly made his day that someone was so willing to come at such short notice, and it made my day to see his joy restored.
