The Ring Finders Metal Detector Service helped find a Lost wedding ring in the surf.
OPEN NOW; Call 760-889-2751

July 7th was a sweltering hot summer day in San Diego when I received a call from Gail about her husbands Lost wedding band which was dropped waist deep in Carlsbad just 30 min before. So I checked the tide books and it was not a good scenario because the tide was coming up fast forecloseing this search until low tide at midnight. I told Gail I was willing to give it a try knowing that it might be found “Now or Never” so I was on my way while she text me their GPS coordinates from google maps. I figured by the time I got there it would be chest to shoulder deep at this point but it was 95* outside and I was in the mood for a wet water search.

As I arrived to the scene of the lost ring the scenario looked even tougher than expected. The surf was pumping with lapping shore break at 2-3 second intervals.
I soon then met the nice couple from Arizona,Gail & J.C. After a few questions and concerns we both had,they pointed in the ocean where he felt the ring slip off waist deep into the breakers.Though It was hot plus worth the shot so I geared up and walked out nearly shoulder deep immediately getting tumbled for about a couple minutes.Suddenly I got a special signal on my Metal Detector and tried to dig it up before the next wave bashed into me,Over and over for what felt like 5 minutes I kept scooping at it getting pushed away from this target multiple times with white wash nearly over head high.I then took one last scoop blindly at this signal again,Swung my Metal Detector around the area and didn’t hear it anymore…OH NO!  Looking into my sand scoop I see a bunch of Cobble rocks but no ring? Then I shook the rocks around when what appeared was the  edge of a metallic circle?

I safely walked back out of the water to the couple,Friends,Family and beach goers who were watching,,while I was trying to look discouraged or maybe giving up the search? I showed them the sand scoop with beach rocks in it,I could only hold the bummed look for a couple seconds,so I pulled out J.C’s Wedding Ring out under the rocks like a magic trick!

Instantly the Hugs and cheering came pouring in from all over with pulsating energy electrifying the beach.The excitement from these calls are most rewarding and never get old.

Thank you Gail & J.C for the kind reward.

Ring lost at Ocean Beach Found.

from La Jolla (California, United States)

Bradford and his wife were visiting from out of town and enjoying a day at the beach on the 4th until Bradford lost his wedding ring in the late afternoon in ankle deep water. It disappeared into the sand and no way it would be found with the naked eye.100_1456 100_1457 They returned the next morning hoping they could spot it, but, it was not to be. They saw several people with metal detectors searching the beach that morning, but, nobody had found it. Some even tried to help by searching the target area, but, the ring didn’t show itself. Disappointed, They went home.

I got the call for help on the 6th, and, even though I thought it likely someone had already found it, I heading down to the beach to give it my best, and ease their minds that it wasn’t still just laying there. After close to an hour of carefully gridding the area and not a single target (good or bad!), I figured my assessment was correct and the area had been hammered by other detectorists. Just then, my Excalibur gave me a nice big signal, and low and behold, it was Bradford’s ring! Surprise and satisfaction for me, and happiness for Bradford. He and his wife drove down today and were reunited with the ring. A pleasure meeting you both and thank you for the reward.

Metal Detecting for a Lost Wedding Band at Wreck Beach, Vancouver

I received a call the other day asking if I could help find a lost gold wedding band then I heard the words Wreck Beach…This is a famous nude beach and that’s OK but the tough thing about this beach is the hike up & down…I think it close to 490 steps from top to bottom…I’m waiting for knee surgery so this is the hardest beach for me to access…But that won’t stop me from helping someone!

I set a time to meet Juan at 5am to drive to the beach, when we got there the tide was going out and Juan showed me the area where he thought  the ring came off. I was excited to start the search and find his ring because I knew how important it was to him and the fact that he lost the ring on his 3rd anniversary…

I started my grid search and close to 4 hours later no ring…? Most times when I do a grid search and don’t find what I’m looking for it’s only because I’m not searching the right area.

I had to pack it up for the day because the tide was coming in and my knee was getting sore! I hate that feeling when you don’t find what you’re looking for to see the look of the face of the people you’re trying to help.  I would come back in a couple of days and do another search in a different area as  I knew his ring was out there some where… I know if I don’t find what I’m looking for it’s only because it’s not where the person thinks it should be.

I came back 2 days later and continued my grid search,  after 1 hour as the tide was going out I got a sweet signal and dug down about 8 inches and saw the beautiful white gold wedding band in my sand scoop!

It’s the greatest feeling when you see the ring in the scoop because you know how much happiness it will bring that person.
