Blaine’s family is from Utah enjoying a day at Newport Beach. Their vacation took a bad turn when Blaine’s wife lost her wedding ring set in the sand. She had placed her rings in her purse while on the beach.

They were about 20 miles away the beach on their way to eat dinner when his wife discovered the ring set wasn’t in her purse. She assumed that the ring may have been pulled out of her purse when she removed her cellphone. They immediately decided to return to the beach to search for the lost wedding and engagement rings.

While driving back, Blaine’s daughter, Abby got online finding my contact information. I talked to Blaine agreeing to meet him at the location. When I arrived there were 6 or 7 people walking an area looking down. They waved me over to show me the general area. There was a little disagreement as to the location. Six people with six different ideas but I knew we were close enough to find the rings if they were actually lost there.

If you start in the right place it could be a fast recovery. If the grid search is slow and thorough eventually the lost item will eventually show up. ( if it’s there )  This time it took about 20 separate by 30 ft. passes till the white gold diamond wedding ring set was in the scoop. Abby posed for a photo with the prize. Sounds easy but this happened on the towel line. The next day the beach sifting machines would have got it mixed with other beach trash.

We all walked off the beach together and the family still had time to enjoy dinner at a nice restaurant. Also the vacation wasn’t upset by the loss of such an important sentimental keepsake. 

If you ever talk to someone that has lost wedding rings or other heirlooms, you will find that it bothers some people for years. I wish I could return all the rings I have found.

***** Bailey’s mother had put her rings and bracelets in her hand bag while she was at beach party at Huntington City That night while everyone was enjoying the camp fire, the hand bag was knocked off a table into the sand. Several pieces of jewelry were lost. 

Bailey’s mother was upset when she came to her home in Apple Valley, CA. Bailey and his friend got into their car to drive 100 miles back to the beach, leaving at 12 midnight. To top things off they were held up over two hours by a road closure on interstate 15. They arrived at the beach at 4 am. After two hours of searching the sand, someone one told them how to contact me. 

I received the call at 6:30 am. When I met them on the beach they were tired and frustrated. We were lucky enough to to find the last two missing pieces of jewelry. A gold high school ring and a gold bangle bracelet. We were very lucky that the beach cleaning equipment was being serviced and didn’t work that area of the beach that night.

**** Luke called me as I was stuck in traffic on one our famous freeways in Los Angeles, CA. His platinum wedding band flew off his finger into to the surf when he threw a football to his brother. He said, he had the area well marked but the tide was rising.

The tide was rising and I was not far away. The problem was traffic was so bad that it would be more than an hour till I could get to him. There were no other options. I assured him if I could get the location while he was still there, we still had a chance to find the ring even if I had to comeback at the next low tide.

When I arrived Luke and his friends were  directly in front of the location. One of Luke’s friends had actually stepped off 30 ft. to where he saw it land in the water. By now the waves were surging up the slope fairly powerful. I still go a great strong signal in knee deep water. Put my sand scoop in and retrieved Luke’s platinum wedding band. He was elated, as were all of us. Luke was happy that it was found before he took off for Salt Lake City the next morning.

One factor that made this a successful search was he had been standing in the surf while throwing the ball and he was actually throwing the ball towards the top of the beach, so it landed away from the deeper water. I guess we gained a little time before the tide took over the spot.

Permission a must on private beach. Ready, Set, Find, & Return Ring.

Ah, but don’t you just love all of our electronic gadgets? Cell phones, computers, e-mail, texting, the information available on the internet, yes these sure can help when help is needed. Communications for help in finding a lost wedding band started via e-mail through TheRingFinders website and was followed by phone conversations. Phone call area coverage was not as perfect as we expect it to be which cause a bit of delay. Well, when it all came together, I was heading out for a search.

Only one problem stood in my way…permission to detect the private resort property. Having been to the resort before I know I did not want to search the area without permission. New personnel this year were not quite sure about granting me access. After getting in contact with the “office”, I was in. Let the search begin.

The wind was very brisk and as such the waves were about 3 feet high and the blowing sand felt like I was in a sand blaster. I had dressed accordingly and with a marked up Google picture from Scott of the area where the ring had been lost I headed to the smaller “High Probability” area. Oh, no…all the beach lounge chairs had been pulled up and stacked close to the dunes covering the majority of the marked area. Anyway I had to get to searching. First I detected as close to the chairs as I could while watching the waves inching their way up the slope of the beach. No targets there so it was now that I had to venture as far into the water I dare go or wait until the next day and calmer water. It was not long, about 10 minutes, and there it was the shining wedding band in my scoop. It did not take long to get back to the comfort of the car. On the way out I stopped at the reception desk and thanked the “team” for granting me access and ensured them I was successful in finding the ring and would be returning it to Scott.

A Crab Walk and a Lost Wedding Band.

July 2019

Between 4th of July’s burgers the telephone rang and I was IT for a game of telephone tag. Yes, I was not IT…the one to find Scott’s lost wedding band. Calm, cool and in a great sense of mind for letting his wedding band slip off his finger at the water’s edge while enjoying the Fourths celebration and doing the Crab Walk. I was told his wife was even in great spirits despite the loss. It could not have been the loss, but the party going on.

It only took 25 minutes to get ready and show up at the town beach. But it took an hour to find the correct target. Scott thought I had given up as I left the water. I had told him not to worry about my digging and putting objects into my pouch. What he was to look for was me leaving the water carrying my scoop level with my waist. Well I left the water and he followed from about 30 feet away. His comment was “Is it time to give up?” My answer “Not until you look in my scoop!” It was hard for him to initially believe I had found the ring, but there it was. Another successful search, find and return. Number 216, but who’s counting. Happy 4th of July!

Hi Rick! Thanks again for your help finding my ring, we’re still in amazement that you were able to locate it. Brief write up and photo for your website below. Again, thanks so much!

My wedding ring slipped off my finger while swimming in South Yarmouth on the afternoon of July 3rd. I found Rick via TheRingFinders.com and sent him an email the morning of July 4th. I figured as a long shot maybe Rick could come out over the next couple of days before we left the Cape. Well not only did Rick reply to my email but he immediately jumped into action and said he could help me right away, and on a holiday no less! Within hours he was in the water searching for it and in no time was able to locate my ring! My wife Kristine and I are so grateful for your help Rick! You’re a life saver!

Stand-in Wedding Ring(s) – what a story!

July 2019

Well, it was a typical 4th of July weekend. The first call for help came with a story about the ring tagging along. The easiest way to tell this is to copy the Thank You note for finding and returning James’ claddagh ring.

Rick,

My father bought me this ring 10 years ago. My grandfather had just passed away and had given his ring to my brother, the oldest boy in the family. So, my father took me when getting that one sized to get one of my own.
A few weeks ago, at my brother’s wedding, nobody remembered the wedding bands, not me, my brother, sister-in-law, planner, nobody. So when the priest asked for the rings, I turned my back to the crowd and slipped off my ring and my brother did the same. They used these to bless their marriage. I was devastated to lose mine. I cannot thank you enough.

Lost Gold Woman’s Ring in a Ohio lake. “FOUND” with Testimonial

from Newark (Ohio, United States)
Contact: 1-740-334-7293

I received an email about a lost gold ring in a lake. The ring is the family heirloom that has been passed down for generations. After getting the details, we setup a day and time to perform the ring search. The ring was lost in about 2 to 4 feet of cloudy lake water, which was unable to see anything. So with the trusty water metal detector, sand scoop and continuing searching, the ring was found! She was overly in joy that the ring was found. Now she can keep the tradition of passing the ring on to the next generation. I was able to bless her in prayer.

Her testimonial is posted below…

Her Testimonial:

I do believe and I believe in miracles! So blessed to have had to opportunity to witness one!

On July 5th I had visited the beach and lost my gold ring in the water while catching a football. In a split second I knew the ring had slipped off my finger and I was so devastated. I spent nearly 2 hours waist deep in murky water trying to feel my foot on the seabed for a ring but no luck. People were kicking up sand and boats nearby were causing waves to pull in and out to shore.

Heartbroken I left with no hope of finding the ring. After a long prayer and a few Facebook posts later I turned to the internet and found Jon in the OH area with multitudinous ringfinders testimonies and I immediately emailed him. After an immediate response we decided to schedule the search Sunday and meet up.

The day before the search there were numerous people in the area and a storm causing the water to rise and I was so afraid the ring would’ve moved from the area that I was in. The day of the search it took Jon no longer than 45 minutes to locate my ring in the swelled waters with his underwater equipment and I was FILLED with joy and relief! It was embedded deep underneath the sand and I would have never found it on my own.

This was a ring engraved with the initials of my boyfriend and his father, which had been passed down and was a promise ring to me which I’ve had worn everyday for 2 years. It meant the world to me and I was so heartbroken to have lost it.

I am so immensely grateful for Jon and his hard work to search and find my ring. My prayer to God had been answered and He sent Jon and his wonderful father in law for that search. He prayed over me and I am forever grateful for their service!

God bless,

Shelby

**** Eric called me as I was driving home from a trip this afternoon. He had been teaching a Yoga class on the beach when he lost his gold wedding ring in the sand. Eric is the owner of www.beachyogasocal.com.

He had just finished teaching a class this morning when he brushed the sand off his pants and the ring went came off into the sand. Two or more hours of searching was disappointing without finding his ring. 

I always have my detecting equipment with me, so I just drove straight to Santa Monica Beach. Traffic was a problem which is normal here in SoCal. The good thing is we had a good chance to find the ring because he got a hold of me in a timely manner.

Parking was easy in the late afternoon as people were heading home. Eric walked with me to the exact location where he had left a few markers in the sand. I fired up my detector and we had the ring in the scoop soon after starting the search.

It was great to meet Eric and be able to have the time and equipment to help him find his special wedding ring. He told me he never knew this service exists. Someday people will know where to go when they need a metal detector specialist, TheRingfinders.com
