Lost Diamond Platinum Wedding Ring Set at Newport Beach, CA. .. Found After A Night In The Sand

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 Ring Newport Beach, CA. … Found in Sand with Metal Detector

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.

Lost Wedding Ring Found in Surf at San Clemente, CA. .. Returned to Grateful Owners

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!

Gold Coin Ring Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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.

Beautiful Wedding Ring Set Lost in Surf at Dana Point, CA. .. Found Four Days Later.

Roxanne had been at a house party on Sunday. It was at a home on the beach front at Strand Beach, Dana Point, CA. The home had a swimming pool but some of the guests wanted to spend a little time playing in the ocean surf. Mostly just wade in the knee deep water.

Roxanne was standing with her back to the incoming waves when she got surprised by a larger wave that knocked her down. Right away she noticed her white gold  and diamond wedding ring set had fallen in the water. The three rings had recently been soldered together which may have made it easier to find. The water saturated soft sand swallowed the ring. She was devastated and several people tried to retrieve the ring with no success.

Tuesday morning, three days after losing the ring Roxanne called me. She was about an hour from Strand Beach and unable to meet me at the location. So she began to give me directions while talking on the phone. We both had pulled up google maps on our computers,  where she pointed out the two houses that she was directly in front of when the loss occurred. There was a low tide that afternoon that would allow me to check the conditions. I made the 12 mile drive to give it a quick search. No Find.

Early Wednesday morning there would be a minus tide which would be the best chance. I drove back at 2:00 am. After an hour of tight grid searching, I had only found three pieces of metal trash. Then, Boom! I got a very nice strong signal. I dug a scoop full of wet sand reaching into it I could feel the big ring. It was dark but I could feel the stones and the three separate soldered bands. 

I didn’t call Roxanne till about 9am. I wanted to personally tell her that her ring was found. When she answered the phone I was at a loss for words. I finally told her that I had her ring. She burst into tears and I could hear yell across the room to her husband, Dominic. “He found my ring”. I told her to give me a call after she calmed down. We could make arrangements to get it in her hands. 

Both Roxanne and Dominic met me that afternoon. It was a great reunion with smiles all around. She must have had a miserable four days. It’s a happy ending for sure.

Lost Wedding Ring From Beach Chair at Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found with Metal Detector

Nathan and Jessica had driven 70 miles from Vista, CA. to spend Sunday at Huntington Beach, CA. They got there early giving them a chance to locate close to the pier where they could take advantage of the great surf conditions. 

Nathan was careful to take his white gold wedding ring off placing it in the pocket of his beach chair. They finished their day and drove the two hours home before discovering that the ring was missing. 

Now it was too late to return to the beach where they suspected the ring was lost in the sand. Jessica went in to action mode. She found my contact information online and called me. 

Knowing it was impossible for them to meet me at the beach, we talked about what happened. Jessica gave me exact landmarks as to where they had been sitting on the beach 5 hours before. 4o feet north of lifeguard tower #6, lined up with the backside of the tower, there is a barrel type trash can, it should be about 10 feet to the right of the trash can. 

I drove the eight miles found a parking place in the city beach parking lot ( not always an easy task). Grabbed my detector and sand scoop walked over to the location. Several people were watching as the beach still had people hanging out. I turned on my machine doing a short grid search. Boom! Great sound of gold in my earphones. Scooped the target and put it in my pocket. 

I walked away from the towel line to take a better look at the ring and take photos. Then I called Jessica with the good news. They both work so we set up a meeting for the next Saturday where I was able to return their very special ring. We had an awesome visit where they told me how much this ring meant to them. It was definitely a pleasure to be able to help Jessica and Nathan find their ring.

Timing is important, call as soon as possible. Our suc rate is better if you can meet me at the location . If not able to meet at the location, try to get the best landmarks and /or photos help get to,the general area,

I WILL TRY ANYWHERE “

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring Set While Boogie Boarding .. Venice Beach, CA. .. Found at Low Tide

Marcos lives in San Francisco. He was in Venice Beach visiting his parents. While he was here they had a big get together with best friends, Lisa and her husband Aleks.

That after noon they spent at the beach where Lisa had the misfortune to lose both her platinum wedding ring and diamond engagement ring. She was riding the waves using a boogie board. Just as she finished riding a wave when the board tipped over and when she came up both rings had slipped off her fingers. Panic and their day had ended in tragically.

That evening Marcos found me through TheRingFinders website. He told me the story and I asked a few questions. There was a low tide near midnight but Venice Beach at that time isn’t the place to be out alone on the beach. We caught the next early morning low tide with Marcos giving great directions of where they were located.

I told Marcos that this could take some time. He was staying very close so I would call him if I find the rings.

Before a half hour passed I got the first good signal Boom! one platinum diamond engagement ring. Three feet away Boom! one platinum wedding band. In less than 18 hours they had already settled about 7 or 8 inches in this fine mushy sand.

Marcos met me on the beach taking photos of the rings to send to Lisa and Aleks. They immediately verified that these were their rings and I was able to talk to Lisa. It was great to hear such excitement as joy on the cellphone while standing on the beach where the rings were found.

Twenty years ago, I would have had to find a public pay phone that worked. To make that phone call.

The internet and all this new technology helped save these sentimental rings from being lost forever. Awesome!
