Stephanie is from Utah, visiting family here in Laguna Beach, CA. They spent the day at 1000 Steps Beach. Where she had placed her Rose Gold Engagment Ring in her backpack. After leaving the beach returning home she could not find the ring. They returned to the beach that evening to search for the ring with no success. Making it more difficult she was not sure that the ring had been pulled out of the backpack.

 I received a call from Stephanie late that evening just before the beach closed. This beach is gated and closed from 10pm till 6am which made me put off the search till the next morning. She would not be able to meet me at the location because she would be driving back to Utah that day. We spent a few minutes on the phone where Stephanie gave me simple directions to the place they had been that day. 

I was on the beach early the next morning. After the first hour it was not looking like the ring could be found. Before giving up I was able to talk to Stephanie’s brother on my cellphone. He clarified the location and it only took another 15 minutes till I got the gold tone in my earphones. There in my sand scoop was a beautiful diamond engagement ring.

Texted a photo of the ring to Stephanie who was on the road near Las Vegas, NV. It’s awesome that we have the internet and cellphones that make a difference when it comes to finding sentimental items like wedding rings, etc. successful. Her brother and sister in law met me about noon to get the ring. Which they were able to take to Stephanie the next week when they had scheduled a vacation to Utah. 

It has happened several times over the past several years where rings get pulled out of beach bags or backpacks and end up lost in the sand. We had to try this search even though she didn’t see the ring fall into the sand. I knew we had a chance that the ring was lost in that location. This time it was a successful find.

Mobile Metal Detector Service by Stan Ross member of TheRingFinders call now.. 949-500-2136 .. Available 24/7 …

Cindy had been on line trying to purchase a inexpensive metal detector when she found my contact information on TheRingFinders.com. She had lost a gold bracelet that she has worn daily for fourteen years. Cindy believed it  came off while doing yard work or possibly in her house.

I told her about how metal detectors work and explained that we could eliminate the yard area using a metal detector. She would then able to concentrate her efforts on searching inside her home.

We made arrangements to meet that afternoon. I had thoughts that a gold bracelet should have been an easy to find in a grass lawn without a metal detector. I would understand what the conditions were when I got to the site. 

Cindy met me to show me two small grass lawns and some grass cuttings she saved. She suspected that her bracelet could have been pulled off where she pulled weeds near the rose bushes. I had to set up my detector using a higher frequency because there was electrical interference in the area.

Other than a couple pieces of tinfoil, the front lawn and rose garden didn’t produce the lost bracelet. We moved to the grass cuttings that Cindy had spread out on a tarp on the last small lawn. I got a strong gold signal but it seemed very small. It turned out to be a one inch piece of Cindy’s gold rope chain type bracelet. I had been hit with the lawn mower.

We went through a whole trash barrel full of grass clippings looking for the other six inches of the bracelet without success. Then I located another small (3/8”) piece of the gold chain in the lawn. Now I had an area to concentrate the search. The XP Deus with the high frequency coil located three of the smallest pieces. Then I found the other two pieces in the grass up next to a wall using a pinpointer.

It was a little disappointing that the bracelet had been damaged. Cindy was just happy to know that her cherished bracelet had been found. She plans to have it made into a pair of earrings.

Diamond Wedding Set, Soldered, Lost in the Sand at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

David and Gina had been vacationing at Newport Beach, CA.  with their children. Gina had put her diamond and platinum wedding ring set in a small bag for safe keeping while they were on the beach. After returning to the place they were staying the wedding ring set was missing.

Gina believed that one of their kids had opened the bag while on the beach. Dave returned to the location just before dark to search the sand as the tide came over the place where the loss possibly happened. Totally frustrated, he had to give up. The next morning that had to leave driving up north to Sacramento, CA. 

I checked my email about 11am where I had a plea for help from Dave. He had given me a location of the rings and gave me his phone number.

We talked for a few minutes before he drove out of cellphone reception range. I proceeded to the location where it was packed with families on the beach. Luckily the lower beach was damp wet sand and the tide was low. After about 7 or 8 grid passes of 30 feet, I received my first and only signal. Boom !! almost eight inches deep the beautiful diamond and platinum wedding ring set. 

Nobody on the beach even knew that I had found such a nice treasure as I walked off the beach to call Dave and Gina with the good news. We made arrangements for them to meet me three days later,  so I could personally return their rings that they thought was lost forever.

Tourist Lost Wedding Ring at Laguna Beach, CA. While Visiting from Russia

Alexander has only been married for one month and had lost his wedding ring in the sand at Laguna Beach, CA. while visiting from Russia. He called me asking help to find his wedding ring that was lost playing football on the beach. He was sure that his one month old white gold wedding ring had come off his finger during the game but he didn’t feel it come off. Tomorrow he would be returning to his home in Russia. He didn’t want to return with bad news that he had lost his ring.

We made arrangements to meet on the beach shortly after he contacted me, even though the beach was packed with sunbathers. I don’t usually search when the beach is crowded but you never know the conditions until you get there.

Alexander walked me a few blocks down the beach where he believed they had played football. We were fortunate that this area was clear of people. I began a grid search that was approximately 15 yards square. On the third pass I got a faint but clear tone. One deep scoop with my sand scoop and there in the bottom of the scoop was Alexander’s gold Wedding Ring. It was smaller than I expected and may have been on edge which would have accounted for the faint signal. Whatever, the main thing was we had another ring recovery.

Alexander was very appreciative but I couldn’t get him to smile for the photo, I think it was because he was still surprised how well the metal detector could find such a small piece of metal in a sea of sand. It was definitely a pleasure to meet and help Alexander. I’m sure he will tell his family and friends in Russia about his adventure of finding someone from TheRingFinders to help him find the ring.

Lost white gold wedding ring at Newport Beach, CA. while on vacation. That is what happened to Karen and Ken when they came to California from North Carolina visiting relatives. It happened just before they were to celebrate 20 years marriage making it even more painful. 

Ken handed Karen his watch and wedding ring and she thought she put them both in the beach bag. When they got back to the beach house the watch was there but not the ring. Two possibilities that led to the loss, one was the ring may have slipped out of her hand before putting the watch in the bag or maybe one of the kids took something out of the bag, dragging the ring into the sand.

I got called the day after the ring went missing. I wasn’t sure if I could have access to the search area as many people had already set up their beach sites. We agreed to meet at the same location knowing that I may have to return later after most the people had left.

Karen showed me the general location and I had enough open space to search most of the area. I decided that I would return later but the I noticed some foot drag marks on the upper slope away from where I had been searching. Karen said her sister in law had searched there. Just because it was clear of people I decided to scan that spot before I left. Boom!  One White Gold man’s wedding ring in the scoop.

Karen was sitting very quiet and kind of discouraged in her beach chair. I walked up to her holding out the ring for her to see. She exploded with tears of joy and a smile so big everyone on the beach could see. Right away she got on the phone to tell Ken the good news. I love doing this, it is worth all the work. We don’t get them all but the many of the rings we find may have been lost forever.

Bill and his a family were enjoying the day at San Clemente State Beach. Bill handed his wedding ring to his wife, Taylor for safe keeping. Then went for a swim in the ocean.

Taylor was busy playing with their young children on the beach. She had put Bill’s ring on her finger as she had done many times before without any problems. Sometime during the next couple hours the ring that Taylor was guarding on her finger slipped off into the sand.

When I got to the area where they had spent most of the day, we decided that the most likely place for the ring to be was under the umbrella and main play zone. I started the grid search there. I hadn’t finished that location when Taylor said she did take the kids 40 ft. down the slope into the shallow water for a few minutes. Tide was rising, so I changed my plan and went to the waters edge. The incoming waves were just over my ankles when I got a good signal. Put the scoop in the sand and pulled out Bill’s white gold wedding band. 

Success and another ring that was returned to a very nice couple who were very appreciative and happy to have found TheRingFinders website.

I got a text from Dino that I did not see until early in the morning asking if I were the Ring Finder that I answered in the affirmative. He got back to me later in the morning stating that he had been at the beach with family, when they flew into panic mode. One of the ladies had been holding onto her husband’s rings when he went into the water, but when they were ready to go she looked and 2 of them had come off of her finger and lost in the fine sand. Luckily they were able to find one of the rings, but the other eluded them. I told Dino I would come immediately because I knew this beach is cleaned meticulously by the county, and I was hoping to beat the machines to the spot.

When I pulled up to park my phone rang, it was Dino, a little disheartened. He told me he had gone out to the area of the loss and could see that the machines had gone through exactly where they had been, and asked me what I thought we should do. I let him know that I was there already, and there is always hope when it comes to ring searches. When I got to the spot it didn’t look good, the beach was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. He showed me where they were sitting, and I could see that there was about a 7 foot wide swath the machines had left while avoiding the trash cans. Dino asked how it looked, and I admitted it did not look very promising except for that 7 foot wide section. I said, “we could only hope it was lost in that area”. I began my grid through the whole area including the untouched swath, 1 pass, 2 passes, then on the 3rd pass just at the edge of that 7 foot wide swath I got a nice signal, put in my scoop and pulled out the ring. Dino couldn’t believe it; I couldn’t believe it! What were the odds, really! What a great morning! I love this service!

Saturday morning I received a desperate email from Katie. She had lost her gold coin ring in the water at the beach. She really wanted to know what the possibilities were of finding it, and if I would be willing to go. Her words in the email were, “This ring is the most valuable thing I own holding sentimental value beyond comparison to anything else. It means more to me than any object I have.” Her mother had made identical rings for her and her sister from her grandfather’s coin collection. I asked if she could meet me there immediately because it was low tide, and good for a possibility of a recovery. She was at work and not able to go, but did agree to send me pictures of the area of the loss. I got her pictures, knew the spot, and decided to right away.

When I got there the beach was full of people in and out of the water, but I was able to work a slow grid in and out of the crowd fighting the waves trying to be as thorough as possible. After 2 hours I decided to call it a day as the tide was coming in making it a more difficult search. I sent a text to Katie letting her know the outcome of my search, but I told her I would go back to try again if she would meet me there at the next low tide about 9:00 PM. She agreed to meet me, so I got down to the spot at about 9:15 PM. I had my wetsuit on to get wet so I did not have my phone with me. I looked around and no one came over, so I decided to begin another search when while I was out in the water a gentleman (Katie’s boyfriend) came out into the water to ask if I was here to find a ring for someone. I said I was and walked out to meet Katie who then told me she had given me the wrong site to search earlier. She had checked her landmarks, and realized her mistake, the actual spot was about 600 feet north of where my original search took place.

I began a new search in and out of the water working in the direction she showed me. After about an hour of searching I received a real good signal in the headphones. It took a couple of scoops and a little shaking of the sand when I saw the gold and the roundness of the coin implant in the ring, when I let out a whoop in the darkness (it was about 10:10 PM). Katie and her boyfriend came running over, and I held out my hand to Katie with her ring in it. When she saw the ring she gave me one of the strongest hugs ever, and was so overjoyed at having it back. It is truly a wonder to see the incredible joy restored when a recovery is made. I really enjoy this service of bringing smiles back to people who thought that what they lost, was gone forever.

Katie sent the following testimonial:

I contacted Steve because I lost one of my most important possessions in the Pacific Ocean, on one of the largest beaches in Orange County. As I was swimming my fingers shrank from the cold and suddenly I felt my ring slip off my finger into oblivion. I tried to catch it but I couldn’t, and neither could my boyfriend who was near me. We searched forever in the surf and the through the sand however we knew it was useless. With complete devastation I went home. That ring was a family heirloom and I lost it. I actually dreamt about it that night and woke up with the simple idea of googling “how to find a ring lost in the ocean?” And Ring Finders came up. I found Steve and was very impressed by his bio and finding record. So I sent him an email where he responded within 10 minutes. Then we spoke on the phone where he asked where I was, what time, how far out I was, how tall I am, the works. He knew high tides and low tides and the perfect times to search. I showed him the location where I lost it on a map via screenshots and by 10:30-11am he was already there at Hunting Beach looking for it. Around 2 he texted me to let me know so far no luck but he will continue after high tide has gone down and asked if I could meet him there after I get off work. I would up arriving around 9pm only to discover that I had circled the wrong spot on the map and Steve had been searching in the wrong spot. However he didn’t seem the least bit annoyed and after we found the correct spot it did not take him more than 45 minutes to find my ring. Steve has the entire set up, he was out there with a wet suit and all. I trust this man could find the Holy Grail. I simply could not believe that he has actually found my ring! He was amazing and so nice! And after everything was found and photos were taken I was shocked to learn that now at around 10pm he was on his way to another search. Steve is incredible and I highly recommend him. He is determined and trustworthy.

Special shout out to Mike from RingFinders, who happened to also be searching on the beach that night and after letting him in on what we were looking for he too offered to help. So kind!

I received a call from Christina whose husband Bill lost his ring the day before while enjoying the beach with his family. They are vacationing from Sacramento, CA, and to lose his wedding ring of 21 years was not what he expected on the trip. Knowing the County and how they keep this beach clean, we arranged to meet about 30 minutes later.

When I got there Christina and Bill met me and walked me out to the area they believed the loss occurred. I looked around and realized that the beach sifters had not come through the area, so I felt good about the ring still being there. I started my search immediately because although it was morning, people were already filling the beach. I searched the area as fully as possible considering the beach was filling up, but was unable to find the ring. I then let them both know that it was going to futile to continue the search with so many people coming, so I let them know that I would be back to search the whole area again at 8:00 PM when people had gone home. When I returned there were very few people left, and I began again starting from the lowest point on the beach working my up the slope. My first signal was a silver color wedding band, and I thought I had it, so I sent Christine a picture asking if was Bill’s. Bill then met me out on the beach to check the ring. It was not his, it was about 3 sizes too large and made of a different metal than his. He and his son went to get dinner, and I continued my search. About an 1 1/2 hour later I got another good signal, and in my scoop was another silver color ring. I got my flashlight and gave it a closer inspection. This time I could read PLAT on the inside, and it was a much smaller diameter than the previous find.

I called Bill to him know, and he and his son made their was over to where I was waiting. When I showed him the ring he was a bit hesitant regarding claiming it his, until he placed it on his finger and it fit perfectly. He told me he thought the ring was lost forever, and really was appreciative of my effort. I then said The Ring Finders don’t give up! It is so great to know that his joy will be going all the way back to Sacramento.
