CHAMPIONSHIP RING FOUND ON CAPE COD BEACH

  • from Yarmouth (Massachusetts, United States)

August 8, 2022. John B was swimming with his grandsons at a beach in Dennisport When his 2005 State Championship ring slipped off his finger in the surf.  He frantically tried to find this ring which He earned coaching His team To victory in the state Championship in 2005.  The ring has become an extension of himself, and to not have it was devastating.

I Received a call from Wendy, Johns wife explaining that her husband had lost a ring at the beach and if I could help them find it. Wendy had found my number on The Ringfinders website  while searching for information regarding the matter.  I drove over to the beach which is the next town over from mine, and met John and Wendy and they explained their situation.  Some of the Beaches on Cape cod can be very difficult to find lost items due to the rocky nature of the seafloor, this was one of those beaches. There were also a few other factors that tied in to a difficult search and that was weather. It was the afternoon and the wind was picking up creating surf that can make recovering a lost item very difficult.  I searched the area for a few hours as the waves impacted me over and over again to no avail.  I had to stop and resume my search when conditions were more favorable.  I assured Wendy that I will not stop searching for the ring until I have found it, and will return the next morning.  The Next morning I revisited the beach only to find the sea state in the same condition, I tried to search the area again but the combination of the rocky seafloor and the pounding waves had me push off the search another day.  Fortunately we started having negative tides and low tide  would push the water further out and make the search easier even if their were waves. I returned to the beach at 3:30am with an expected low tide at 4:30am.  The tide was low and the sea state calm,  it was perfect conditions for recovering the ring, especially where I would be struggling with digging through the rocky sands as well as being in the water with only a headlamp for a light source. I Started beyond the area where the ring was lost and worked my way back towards the shoreline, This would assure that I would be ahead of the tide as it started to return. I approached the area where the ring was Lost, this area is the rockiest of all of the search area and very time consuming to recover any item. This slowed me down and I could tell the water was starting to rise. once I worked through that area with no success I continued on and finally received a good solid signal in the range that I was looking for.  I push my scoop into the semi rock sand and pulled my scoop up and the State Championship ring revealed itself in my sand-scoop.  Victory I had finally recovered Johns Beautiful ring.  I had to wait a while before I could call and tell him due to the time, around 6:30 am I decided to Give him a call and let him know.  John had left CapeCod  but was returning around noontime and we made arrangements to meet so I could return his beautiful ring to him.  When we met he was with his grandsons whom I had promised on the beach a few days earlier that I would find their grandfathers ring. They were so excited they took possession of the ring before John could.  Thank you John and Wendy for having faith in me to find such an important part of your lives, I am thrilled it is back on the finger where it belongs.

2005 State Championship Ring

Johns grandson are almost as excited to have the ring back as their grandfather.

Lost class ring, Found 22 years later, Sanford, Florida….and returned to owner!

A friend of ours told me about her lost diamond engagement ring and said it could have been dropped some where around the house that they used to live in, 20 some years ago! She had a sneaking suspicion that maybe one of her boys had gotten a hold of it and miss placed it either inside the house or maybe dropped it some where outside of the house in the yard…possibly! And since they only moved just across the street it has been easy access to the house and yard for the occasional metal detecting. I had started around the front of the house checking every signal that sounded off in the small gold ring range and I dug plenty of foil, pull tabs and pieces of construction aluminum from when the house was built. Next I went along a small grassy area between the houses and got a strong signal that just begged to be dug up! Four inches down I uncovered a large class ring of someone who graduated in the year 2000. The school name indicated a small Christian school that is no longer functioning but my own children attended that very school back in the day! So I asked around and found the parents of the young man who lost his ring and sure enough….while living in that house he had lost his ring shortly after graduating! I always get a thrill when I find a ring in the ground but it brings special joy when that ring has information on it that helps me return it to the rightful owner. In this case I called one of the parents and asked them about their son and his lost class ring and sure enough, he had lost it shortly after his graduation.

*** A past client of mine contacted me, saying he saw a lost ring post on Craigslist. I sent the person a message offering help to look for his ring. The next day I received a call from Ivan, who believed his ring was lost in the sand at Baby Beach, Dana Point, CA.

A whole day had pasted and it was already going to be dark before I could meet Ivan at the location. I met Ivan 45 minutes we talked on the phone. He showed me a 50ft x 50ft area of dry sand that he believed he lost the ring. After grid searching that part of the beach without finding his ring, I asked him if he had been anywhere else that day. He said, they had eaten lunch on the lawn in the shade of a nearby tree. He was sure that the ring was not there because he thought it would have been easily spotted in the thin grass if it were lost in that spot. 

I had to convince him it would be worth spending another few minutes to do a quick scan with my metal detector. As I began my grid search, I realized I would need my pinpointer to check the many signals I was getting. The darkness made it difficult to check signals. Just as I was getting ready to walk over to my car to get the pinpointer, I got a signal and I had enough light to see a round edge of a gold ring. BOOM! .. Ivan’s ring.  He was double surprised because he had already decided the ring could not be in that location. It was a good night and another very special recovery..

*** Brian and his wife, Myriam had been staying a hotel at Laguna Beach. Every year they travel here from Las Vegas to enjoy the beach. This day had been disrupted by the loss of Marian’s white gold diamond wedding ring set. They had been on the beach when they decided to move their small windbreaker tent. Actually they moved it to three different locations 40’ to 50’from the first spot.

The rings had been taken off and put into a small pocket, of the windbreaker. They spent the whole afternoon trying to find the rings with their hands. The hotel management gave them my contact information. Brian called about 8:30 pm asking if I could search for the rings. He figured I would come in the morning. It sounded like this could be a easy search and it is only 7 or 8 miles drive. I told him we could do the search now, there is no need for his wife to worry about the rings any longer than she has to.

He sent me the hotel address and said, I would meet him on the beach in a half hour. Parking was not a problem at this time of night. Brian was on the beach to show me the three places the rings could be. I started at the first location with no luck, then the second location, not one metal signal from my detector. I could see a worried look on Brian’s face as I was nearing the last few feet of searchable sand. Then, BOOM!! the first ring gave me a signal I knew had to be a ring. I held it up for Brian to see. Next two swings of the detector the second ring showed up in the scoop. 

We shared the joy of the recovery, but I didn’t get to see his wife when she got the good news. Brian wanted to take the rings up to their hotel room for the surprise reveal of rings. Wedding rings are so special and personal, it has been my pleasure to help Brian and Myriam and many others recover the special symbols of love and marriage.

** I just got out of the water where I had been practicing dive recovery techniques. When I checked my phone I could see a text asking for help finding a lost ring at Califia State Beach, San Clemente, CA.

I called Caroline right away and they were still at the location. She said her white gold diamond ring was lost in dry sand. I told them I could be there in less than an hour. They said, they could stay to show me the area. It would also be better because the beach was crowded now and many seemed to be leaving.

When I arrived, I scanned the whole area around their pop-up tent with no sign of her most prized engagement ring. We had one more place that i couldn’t get to on the dry sand. Another group of beach goers were still on that spot. 

While waiting for the other space to be available to search, I asked Caroline if she went into the ocean. She said only walked into the surf for a few minutes but she was sure the ring wasn’t lost in the water. 

I took a few minutes to grid search ankle deep incoming tide. While doing that I checked the tide schedule on my iPhone app. When I tried to put my phone in my pocket I missed the pocket and my phone was lost in the surf.

Frantically scanning the surf for my phone, BOOM! Caroline’s beautiful white gold diamond engagement ring found.. My phone was never recovered, crazy what the ocean can do. The flat phone must have just got pulled way down into the deep water.  

Caroline and Bob were very grateful and couldn’t believe how her ring was lost in the area she had only visited for 5 minutes.  I was happy for them and I immediately left to get a replacement for my phone as was Sunday and the phone company closes early. I need a phone to be available for the next recovery call.

*** Kristina called asking for help finding a gold necklace lost in the sand at Newport Beach, CA. It was already dark when she contacted me, but that isn’t a problem for me. I asked if she was available to meet me at the location within the next 20 minutes as I am very close to that beach. 

Kristina met me on the beach soon after we talked. I explained that it was important to do the search before the morning beach cleaning machines started their work. Not knowing what type of gold chain I was looking for I told her that some metal detectors can’t detect gold chains especially if there isn’t a pendant with it. 

We set up a grid search area and the gold necklace was found easily with my high frequency settings on my most reliable detector. ( the one I have set up for small gold stud earrings). Needless to say Kristina was totally elated and happy that this sentimental keepsake was not lost forever. It was a pleasure to meet her and help her find this necklace. I love being able to do this.

*** Vanessa and her family were in Huntington Beach, CA. visiting relatives. While playing in the ocean withe her kids, her white gold diamond engagement ring  was lost in the surf. She and her husband had been together for 20 years and the had just given her the ring a couple weeks before.

Venessa’s cousin, Chantel found my phone number while searching the internet. Chantel gave me detatailed information on the time of day the ring was lost. It was 20 ft. north of lifeguard tower 17. Because it was lost at high tide, I felt we had a chance to find ring at a 2am low tide.

Arriving  at Huntington Beach a half hour before low tide and after about an hour of grid searching, my detector gave me the great signal that turned out to be Venessa ’s ring. I waited till 8am to call them with the good news followed by a photo of the ring. 

Venessa and her husband were returning their home in Arizona today, so they were able to stop by to pick up the ring. A very happy couple and it was my pleasure to be available to help them.

*** Christie lost her white gold diamond engagement ring in the surf at a Orange County, CA. beach. She was home 50 miles inland when she contacted me. We talked about the time of day the loss occurred and she gave me verbal directions as to a good landmark on the beach. Neither she or her husband could meet me at the location.

I was able to get to beach at a 4am minus low tide the next day. After more than two hours I got a good signal in knee deep waves that turned out to be Christie’s awesome ring. Even though I cross gridded for another hour the wedding ring did not show. Normally both rings are very close together the first couple days of the loss. 

Christie told me in the begging that she was only interested to recover the engagement ring. I did go back a second day for one more try to find the other ring. Crazy surf conditions make for a challenging search. Had to give up on the second ring. 

Christie and her husband were able to meet me after they got off work. She was more than happy to have her ring back after believing that it was list forever. We never know if I may find the other ring some day. It’s happened before.

*** After doing a ring recovery for Justin at Bolsa Chica State Beach, I took a little time to detect around the Firepits before driving home. After about a half hour,  I found a new Iphone that was in the sand next to a firepit. The battery needed charging. 

Returning home I was able to put a quick charge on the phone. It was locked but I did intercept a message. It said, ”This is a lost cellphone please call this phone number XXX-XXX-XXXX”

I guess this is a function of find apple iPhone ” Find My Phone”..  I contacted the owner using my phone to call him. He sent a friend to pick up the phone later that afternoon. I found out the phone had been lost four days at that location on the beach. 

Last time I found the owner of a locked Iphone. I was able to get past the locked feature by asking Siri to call mom. The phone called the owners mother.

***  Melissa and Jason had been hitting a volley ball around while on the dry sand at Surfruder Beach, Malibu, CA. Melissa felt her gold class ring fly off her finger, disappearing into the sand. After a hour or more of searching the area they gave up searching. A person on the beach told them about the ring finders directory of metal detector specialists. 

Melissa called me asking for help. I was available to meet them later that afternoon. There were many people still on the small beach. Actually it looked like we would have to wait till people left the beach. That is not a new problem, it’s just a matter of out waiting the beachgoers. The sun will set and the afternoon winds will chase them off the beach. 

There were a few open areas of dry sand that allowed me to start eliminating the some spots that the ring could be hiding. I very rarely ask people to move, I don’t feel like bothering people that are enjoying a restful day at the beach. Once in a while people will volunteer to move their towels which is nice. Most the time I try not to tell them I’m looking for a valuable item. Just an important key ( it’s just a little white lie ). Sometimes if you tell them your looking for a valuable item, it causes a searching frenzy. Everybody wants to help and it gets crazy.

Almost finished detecting the few 10’x10’ open spots with no success, the magic tone of a gold ring was heard in my headphones. One scoop in the sand revealed Melissa’s awesome gold class ring. Melissa and Jason were near me and didn’t realize that the ring was in the scoop until I held the scoop up for her to see her ring. A very intense moment with smiles all around. It was another win for The RingFinders website directory.
