Vintage Diamond Ring Lost at Winery in Malibu, CA…Found in a most Precarious Place and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was on my way to metal detect one of the beaches today, so I guess it was appropriate for me to get the call from Cassandra about losing her ring yesterday. She had been at a winery, and out on the back balcony when she inadvertently dropped  her ring. Below was a narrow ledge where she saw the ring fall to, and was certain it was still there.

When I met Cassandra at the winery she took me to the area, which was very steep. The ledge she believed the ring to have fallen onto was about 1 foot wide, and thickly covered in grass and bushes. The ledge was also about 20 feet above a shallow concrete creek bed. I first went down to see how difficult it would be to use my equipment, and decided I could do it. When I got back with my equipment she pointed out the spot she believed the ring had fallen. With one hand holding onto the rocks, I proceeded to scan the area with my 6 inch coil. It wasn’t long before I received a good signal. I pulled out my pin pointer to check, and when I moved some of the shrubs I saw the ring positioned precariously on the very edge of the ledge. I then gingerly reached down and plucked it from danger, and showed it to a very excited Cassandra. I believe her smile tells it all. What fun, what a great day!

Key Lost in Los Angeles, CA Park…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was having lunch yesterday with my wife and son who we were fortunate to be able to visit with his busy college schedule, when I received a call from Nate about his key that he lost at his local park. Nate had been exercising, and left his key and phone in a specific spot in the grass so as not to lose them while running. When he was finished, he picked up his phone, and forgot the key. When he got home he realized the key was still back at the park and went back to search for it. He told me that he searched for about 4 hours, and was not able to find it. I told him that because I was with my family, I could meet with him in the morning today to do a search. I figured that if he could not find it with a thorough search that no one was going to happen upon it before I got there.

I met Nate at the park at about 10:00 AM , and he took me to the area where he left his phone and key. It wasn’t huge, and the grass was not very high, but just high enough to hide a small item such as a key. I grabbed my detector, and pin pointer, and checked every signal, some were deep, and some surface (bottle caps and such). After about 3 passes in the grid I got a good signal, looked down, and in the grass saw Nate’s key. I walked over to him asking a question about his key when I opened my hand to show that it had been found. He just could not believe it was still there, thinking that possibly a dog might have eaten it, or someone might have found it. This key was his house key, and was so important that he had spent 4 hours searching for it, and looking on the internet in hopes of finding a way to recover it, where he found me on The Ring Finders site. I am glad he was successful in his internet search, and that I was able to be a part of the operation; GREAT SMILE!

Nate sent the following:

Hey! It was nice meeting you as well and I thank you again for helping me out.

Yesterday (03/24/17) I lost my house key at the park and I searched 3-4 hours for it on my own and had no luck. I called Steve and he said he couldn’t make it out that day but tomorrow would be better. We agreed to meet the next morning and he was there on time. He asked me a few intelligent questions, and his patience was remarkable. The hardest part about finding the key was that it was not on a keychain and not uniquely designed, but it still only took him 15 minutes to find it! I really needed that key to get in and out of my house. He pretty much made my week by finding it, and I thank him for taking the time to help me out. He didn’t make me feel like I was wasting his time, and I could tell he enjoys his job and takes it seriously. Thank you Steve!

Wedding Ring Lost at Winery .. Temecula, CA. .. Found in Landscaping

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Mathias text me to ask if I would be available for a ring search in Temecula, CA. I answered, explaining we need to discuss details and get permission if it’s private property.. He was able to get permission for the next morning from the winery. His wife Brittany would be there to meet me to show me possible locations where her two white gold wedding rings may have come off her fingers.
Brittany had last remembered seeing her rings the morning they went to the winery. She discovered her two wedding rings missing that afternoon as they were leaving. They had walked all over the the property and she couldn’t recall anything she might have done to cause the rings to slip from her finger.
They reported the loss to the management but nobody had found any rings. After thinking about the events of the day Brittany remembered swinging her arms as she talked. We went to the area where that had happened. I was able to find the wedding band but the engagement ring was not in the same grassy landscaping. The rest of the area was asphalt and hard packed dirt walkways. Another point was that the larger of the rings was the probably the first to fall off. It could have fallen off her finger anywhere before this location. With not many places for a ring to hide, it may have been picked up by one of the many tourists that visit this popular winery.
It had been four days sense the loss of the rings. After going over the grassy landscaping four times with two different metal detectors I felt confident that the second ring was not in that grass.
Brittany thanked me for finding the one ring and realized that we had found what we can call a needle in a hay stack.
It would have been easier if she felt it slip from her finger and if we could have got to search the area sooner. With the information they first gave me, it didn’t seem likely to find any ring. This was one time I as glad that I say, “I will Try Anywhere”

Wedding Ring Lost in Backyard .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Mike emailed me in the morning after finding my contact information on TheRingFinders.com. He included his phone number which I used to reply to his request for help. After hearing his story, I explained how the metal detector works and with the information that he gave me, I should be able to find the ring..
The day before, Mike had been doing some gardening in his backyard. He actually felt his gold wedding ring fly off his finger. There were lots of dead leaves and soft soil in the area he thought it may be. He spent some time that evening searching the garden and the grass in front of the planter with no success.
We met the next day after he got home from work. Seeing the small search area I put a 6 inch coil on my CTX metal detector to begin the search. Unable to get a signal in the planter, I was about to use my pin pointer to search in the plants and against the wall. Before shutting the detector off, I passed it over the grass in front of the planter. “Boom” gold ring tone from my detector with a 12-13 ID number. The ring was well hidden in a depression in the lawn. Mike told me he had raked his fingers through the grass several times before calling me. He did call the gardener that morning telling him not to do the backyard that day, which could have been the difference of this being a successful search or a failed search. It was an easy search, but after seeing how well the ring was hidden, I doubt that it would have been recovered without a metal detector..imageimage

Wedding Ring Lost in Santa Monica Mountains…Found and Happily Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

A week ago today Jesse emailed me regarding his ring that was lost behind his house in the Santa Monica Mountains. I got back with him to arrange a time to look for it, and we were able to meet the next day. The ring was his grandfather’s wedding ring that he wore during the invasion of Normandy right after getting married. He also visited over 140 countries, so this ring had a wealth of meaningful history for Jesse and his family, and to lose it, was losing a serious piece of his family’s history.

When I got to the area Jesse showed me where the loss occurred. It was covered with a thick layer of leaves, fallen trees, and a shallow creek. I started the search in the general vicinity he thought the ring might be and continued to work my way out. I ended up searching the edges of the creek, up and down the banks, and then into the water with no luck. I moved the search area out further and further, going into the area of fallen trees, when I had a good tone in the headphones, looked down and moved the debris around a bit, and saw the ring. A while later Jesse came over to me with a kind of sullen look on his face, and saying, “No luck huh?, when I lifted my hand to show him his ring. Needless to say he was very excited, as was I. It was a great day.

Platinum Tiffany and Co. Wedding Band Lost in Backyard in Winnetka, CA…Joyously Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from David Thursday night about his wedding band he thought was lost in the backyard while working in the garden. I talked to him about arrangements to meet at his house, and because I knew that there wasn’t much of a chance it going anywhere, I figured the ring would be safe. Well David informed me that he had a lot of squirrels in the area, and he worried one of them might run off with it. I had not thought of that possibility, so we arranged to meet at our earliest convenience which was today.

When I got to the house David showed me to the yard where the garden was. It was a good sized plot that was covered with a thick layer of fresh mulch. David explained how he had been pulling the crabgrass from the garden, and digging deep to get the roots out. It also had steel fence posts hammered into the ground spaced out at equal intervals throughout the garden which I explained would make my search very difficult, so we decided to remove them. I started my search and was getting a lot of iron readings on my detector, and remembered from a previous search, that some mulch companies put rusted nails and screws in their mulch to add iron to the soil. I received a good signal, and dug a very small piece of non ferrous metal. I continued on in another plot, and after setting one grid line, I received a very good signal, and got my plastic trowel (so as not to hurt the ring) and my pin pointer to focus the search. I found the ring about 3 to 4 inches underneath the mulch. David and his wife were very happy to have his token of their promise to each other back on his hand. I in turn was happy to be able to make someone’s day today.

Men’s Opal Ring Lost in the Hills of Los Angeles, CA…Found.

I received a call from Adam yesterday about a ring that was lost at his house about a month and a half ago during a corporate party. Apparently one of the guests was taking a swing at a pinata when his ring flew off of his extended forefinger. I knew that the ring, if lost in the yard wasn’t going anywhere, so we planned on me coming to search the area today. It was then he sent me a text picture of the area they thought the loss occurred, which gave me pause. The house was situated on the hillside with a ravine that went down probably four hundred feet of steepness. I knew then it would be a tough search.

When I got to the house, which was pretty awesome, it was a big castle with a swimming pool moat and all, I met with Adam. He wasn’t able to describe the ring, but told me it was a big one. He explained what had happened, and where they believed the ring went flying. Hoping though that it had landed in the yard and not on the hillside, I decided to search the area in the yard first, to no avail. I then went out to the hillside and began working in the bushes nearest the fence, and worked my way down. The footing was very tenuous, so the going was slow. I was surprised at how much metal was in that hillside, and much of it sounding like what I was looking for, so digging all of that slowed me considerably more, and my legs were aching, but I kept going, sometimes with my feet sliding out from under me. I was going down to a shelf about a third the way down and finish there, because the hill steepened below the shelf and looked unsafe for me to go further. I finally got down to the shelf, and began my slow assent back to the house further to the side I had not detected on the way down, detecting as I went. I got about halfway back when I saw this beautiful glimmer of gold in the mid day sun. The ring was sitting right on top of the ground waiting to be picked up. I reached down and picked up this awesome men’s opal ring, and knew I had found what I was looking for. Adam was very happy that he would be able to get the ring back to its owner, as was I., Had a great day, a wonderful search and recovery, and there will be smiles that I won’t see, but know they will be great.

Heart Pendant and Necklace Lost in San Pedro, CA… Found.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

P1000073P1000072

Renee called me today to ask if I would be able to help her find a necklace and pendant with small diamond that she lost in the ivy where she had been walking. I told her that I was available, but she had to wait until she was done at work, which wasn’t going to be long. We arranged to meet at a pizza restaurant near the location, and then I would follow her over to the search area. She had remembered the pendant to be about the size of a nickle, which made me feel good about the search, because I knew the chain would be a bear to find, if my detector would hear it at all, but a nickle sized pendant should not be too bad a search.

When we got to the location, she then told me it had missing for two weeks, and then showed me the area (which is behind her in the photo above).  When I walked over to the ivy, I could see that it had been recently trimmed, within a day or two, so I was feeling a bit like it might be gone, but I wanted to do a thorough search, so I got right to work. I was finding everything, bottle caps, screw caps, cans, bottles, foil, ketchup pouches, etc. I found everything but what I was looking for. I had my best detector, but when I had gone over the whole area, I decided to switch to another detector, knowing its ability to find small gold (hoping it would find the chain). I then began to find more stuff in the area I had already cleaned out, getting more good signals, and more foil. My pin pointer was getting a workout as well. I then got another good signal in the headphones, put in the pin pointer and got nothing. I passed the coil over again, got the good signal, put the pin pointer in again; nothing. I then laid the detector down, and reached into the debris, and handful by handful passed it in front of my coil. When I heard the good sound in my headphones again I started going through what was in my hand when I saw a very fine chain. As I lifted it up, I found the very small heart shaped pendant, which I have next to dime in the picture to show scale, it was smaller than a nickle, and fine in thickness. I lifted it up, and began walking across the street to show Renee who was sitting in her car, because it was pretty cold. She jumped out to see, and a great big smile appeared. I am glad to have made her day today, and happy to have had the right tool for the job.

Ring Lost in Pacific Palisades, CA…Found.

Hunter called me on New Years Eve about a lost ring that was lost in a backyard, so after we discussed the situation, we decided to postpone the search until 2 days later on Saturday morning.

When I got to the house Hunter told me how his boss was setting her garden’s planters with new potting soil, and realized the ring was missing. About 2 to 3 weeks had transpired since the loss until they found me. The nice thing about that as opposed to a beach search, is that the ring was going no where, so I knew if it was there it would be found. Hunter showed me the areas where the ring was possibly lost, one was a box about 4 feet square about 2 1/2 feet deep and surround by re-bar. That was a bit discouraging because I knew my detector would be picking up the re-bar as I got near the edges. The other planters were much quieter, and I received no signal from them, so I focused on the square box. After I removed some spikes that were holding down the sprinkler system, I was still getting readings all over the planter, even in the middle which I didn’t understand. I realized I would not be able to use my detector at all in this planter, so I switched to my pin pointer to continue my search. I began to see why I was getting so many hits in this planter, as it was littered with bits of rusting metal (screws and scrap). Fortunately the potting soil was loose which allowed me to probe deep in the planter with the pin pointer. After about 10 minutes I got a good solid hit, and began to dig. Out came this pretty little ring with a great looking turquoise stone in it.

Well I called Hunter, and showed him my find. He was pretty excited about the recovery, unfortunately his boss wasn’t there to see the ring at that moment, but I am sure she had a nice smile, because it was given to her by a friend. More happy smiles for a new year’s beginning.
