Lost Ring In Surf at Laguna Beach .. Found

Contact: 1-949-500-2136

 

Paul actually saw his ring come off his finger while searching for lost keys in waist deep surf. He was at Picnic Cove which is one of many small beaches in Laguna Beach, CA. When I talked to Paul he said it happened 3 hours before calling me. Checking the tide table, determining that it happened just about high tide. It was a good sign that we had a chance to find it at low tide. The only problem is all the beaches have different characteristics. They also change with the currents and wave action.

We made arrangements to meet that night just before low tide. Going by his verbal directions I arrived earlier to start the search from the upper sand slope as the tide receded. Paul and his wife Sonia showed up just before I reached he waters edge. He directed me out onto the bedrock reef, where I gridded in knee deep surf. It was dark and there were many crevasses that could hide a ring.

When I came back to the sandy part of the beach, Sonia told me she thought it was lost closer to the sand. I took a few minutes to finish where I had left off my original grid. Boom! Paul’s platinum rose gold with diamonds wedding ring, there in a couple inches of water right where the sand met the rock reef. Paul and Sonia were standing up further on the beach with that look of doubt on their faces, but that changed to smiles of joy when I held up the ring for them to see.

It was a beautiful custom made ring that Sonia had designed. She had custom made for Paul while she was on vacation in India. Paul was embarrassed that this happen after they had only been married four months. Finding the ring was a special moment for all of us. I love helping people.

Friday night Katie was with friends on the beach at Belmont Shores when she lost her cellphone in the dry sand. The next morning she was able determine that her phone was still at the beach using the “find my friend app” on her roommates phone. After several hours searching the sand with three of her friends, one of them searched the internet and found TheRingFinders site.

I got the call and met Katie on the beach soon after verifying that she could be there. It took about a half hour till I got the exact signal that matched my cellphone. Katie was close by, so I called her over to hear what I heard in my headphones. Then I let her retrieve the phone by feeling through the sand.
It made it a special recovery for her and it’s always safer not to damage the phone with a sand scoop.

These days of smartphones it’s not only the cost and trouble to purchase a new phone. These phones have photos and information that can’t be replaced. I love helping people find things that mean so much to them. It’s very difficult to rent or use a metal detector if you have never used a metal detector. Call member of TheRingFinders.

 

Wedding Ring Lost in Gravel .. Glendale, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

After receiving an email from James this morning asking if I could help him. I sent him a reply asking for him to call me. His email explained that he had only been married for one month and had already lost his wedding ring. He believed that it possibly came off while he was walking his dog. At one point his dog got in a skirmish with another dog. That was when he thinks it may have come off his finger, although he didn’t realize his ring was missing until 20 minutes later.

James could not get off work till after 7pm and it would be dark. His wife, Sarah could meet me at 3pm which was our best alternative. She wasn’t there when it happened but she did have a matching ring that helped me get an ID reading with my detector and she had good idea of the location. Both James and Sarah had searched for some time before I got to the location. They believed it may be in the 3/4”gravel ground cover used in the planters along the sidewalk.

As I scanned the planters, Sarah asked me a few questions about how the detector works. I remember telling her to keep her eyes open because I can’t get the detector into plants and difficult spots. After about 45 minutes I heard Sarah yell, “I found it” The gravel was a light gray color very easy to hide a silver colored ring. I had just past the place where she saw the slight glimmer of the silver colored ring. It was right up against a sprinkler head wedged in amongst the gravel. The sprinkler head definitely masking the signal of the smaller ring because it was a larger metallic target.

This is not the first time the ring was found by eyeballing (visual sighting ) while trying to use use the metal detector, but it will not be the last time. All is good because James and Sarah now have their original wedding ring back where it belongs. James agreed that he was getting it sized before he wears it again. Another great find and happy day for James and Sarah.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Amanda called me as I was driving to check a site here in Newport Beach . She said, she had lost a bracelet in the sand the day before  at 15th St. in Newport Beach. At the time we talked on the phone I was one block away at 16th St. We made arrangements for her to meet me in 15 or 20 minutes. Meanwhile I had a verbal discription of where the bracelet was loss, so I began a random scan of the area. I was swinging my detector but I was really looking for any signs where somebody may have searched the sand. I came upon one 10ft. square of dry sand where it had been raked. A couple minutes later I had the charm bracelet in my scoop.

When Amanda with her daughter arrived I was able to present her with this very sentimental bracelet that she said she had had for years. Both her and her daughter broke out in smiles. She explained to me that her daughter had actually lost the bracelet and was feeling bad about losing it.

Tiffany Wedding Ring Set Lost in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Shona lost her Tiffany gold and diamond wedding ring set at Huntington Beach in the sand. She had taken them off, while applying sunscreen. She then put them in the cupholder of her beach chair. A few hours later after carrying her chair and other items to her car, she remembered the rings. The rings were not in the pocket of the beach chair.

Shona went back to the beach where a lifeguard told her to check the internet for TheRingFinders.com. She called me and I met her on the beach a short time after our phone conversation. That’s when I heard the whole story. It could possibly be a time consuming search, as the area she walked back to her car was almost a quarter mile. Now, she was having trouble finding exactly what trash can they sat near.

From experience I felt the rings most likely fell out when she first folded up the beach chair. Shona was going through he contents  the trash cans to identify things she had thrown in them. While waiting for her to give me the exact place she sat, I started a random search. Two 20 ft. passes in the general area, I got a simple signal and when I scooped it up, there were two Tifanny wedding rings in my sand scoop. They were definitely Shona’s rings. The lifeguard happened to be standing near me. I showed him and called Shona over to surprise her so the lifeguard could experience the joy of returning the wedding rings.

This is the second time recently that an impossible search turned out to be really easy. I know from experience these rings would have not have been here the next day. The dry sand next to the Huntington Beach pier gets detected everyday and every morning the dreaded Beach King beach cleaning machines invade the beach, claiming items as small as dimes.

It was a great day, also a pleasure to meet Shona and help find her rings.

Surfer Loses Wedding Ring in Sand .. 1000 Steps Beach, South Laguna Beach, CA. .. Found and Returned

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

While searching for a wedding rings lost at Salt Creek Beach I received a call from Keoni. He was located at 1000 Steps Beach and had just discovered that his tungsten wedding ring had fallen out of his backpack. It had to be one of two places, as he had to move his belongings when the high surf came up on to the dry sand.

Keoni was late for an appointment and had to leave the beach. I told him that I knew the beach well and assured him I could get to the area of the loss with the directions he had given me. It was less than a mile from where I was when he called.

After a finding the first set of rings sooner than I thought, Drove to 1000 Steps Beach. It is only a couple hundred steps to the beach and going down is easy. Then I walked over to the location near the volleyball court where I used the photos that Keoni had texted me to start my grid. Picking a spot to start my grid, it took about 45 minutes to find Keoni’s ring.
The ring was found within two feet of where I started the grid search. It would have been just a few minutes if I had gone north instead of south.

I contacted Keoni and arranged to drop off his ring at his house as it was on my way home. He was very grateful for having his wedding ring returned. I think you can see by the smile in his photo.

Heirloom Diamond Wedding Rings Lost .. Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, CA. ..Recovered

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

This search was a surprise to me as well as Farimah and her husband, Ehsan. Farimah had called me early Sunday morning asking for help to find two heirloom wedding rings that were lost somewhere at Salt Creek Beach near Dana Point, CA. She was devastated because two years ago her original wedding rings were stolen when her home was burglarized. These replacement rings were family heirlooms that were given to her by her mother in law.

Her description of what happened before discovering her rings were missing sounded like it could take many hours to search the large area she had been. A large section where she had walked was hard packed wet beach with many people on the beach. If the rings fell off there, they would have probably been picked up by other people that often walk the beach searching for sea shells.

Discussing the events of the day, Farimah did not remember doing any activity that would cause her rings to slip from her finger. The best clues I had was that she did realize the rings were missing before she left the beach and her husband, Ehsan had found a bottle cap that was at exact area where they had set on the beach.

I started where they had spent the most time sitting on the beach, then the 50 yard section of dry sand towards the restroom. Next I went to the damp soft sand where her daughter had been playing in the sand with other family members. I was dreading the 8 – 10 blocks of hard wet sand that she had walked. Then, Boom !! A Big beautiful diamond ring in the scoop. Next signal less than a foot away was the wedding band. I called Farimah telling her I needed some help.

They had walked down the beach to get some snacks from the little restaurant. Farimah walked up to me and I surprised her by holding up the wedding ring. She exploded with joy and before she could get her breath I said, how about this one, showing her the beautiful engagement ring. She was speechless and gave me a big hug. We had time to pull off another surprise, as Ehsan was still coming from snack shack, unaware that the rings had been found. She walked up to him presenting him with her own surprise. It was beautiful day for all.

Farimah told me she could not believe that the ring was found in that location because she had spent less than 10 minutes there. Another bonus was several of the people on the beach were also able to witness the return and learn about TheRingFinders metal detecting service.

This search taught me to stay positive even if you know how impossible it may seem. If  you have lost any metallic valuable in a place where a metal detector can be used try to mark the general area. Call a member of TheRingFinders as soon as possible. ‘I WILL TRY ANYWHERE”

 

Angry Wife Throws Wedding Ring .. Anaheim, CA. .. Found in Grass

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Bill called me Sunday evening asking me if I could help him find a diamond wedding ring lost in his backyard grass.
I told him I could come that night if he couldn’t wait till tomorrow. We agreed to meet early the next morning.

When I arrived we walked into the backyard, where there was a metal detector and two rakes that Bill had used to unsuccessfully search for the ring. He was frustrated that he couldn’t find it. When I asked how the ring was lost, he told me that his wife had actually thrown the ring in a moment of anger. I told him that this happens more than people know. It’s looking like one out 10 calls I get are rings that were thrown.

After setting up a grid search the ring was located deep in the 3 inches of grass completely out of site. It must have been stepped on while searching. Even raking the grass didn’t pull it up.

I think Bill was a little embarrassed that this had happened. I just consoled him that ” This Happens More than People Know”

It was a good feeling to help him find the ring.

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost Off Roof .. Long Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Craig was doing roofing repairs for a client in Long Beach, CA. when his platinum/ gold wedding band came of his finger. It rolled quickly down the roof just like a wheel. When he came off the roof he couldn’t find it in the 6 foot area between the house and the fence. The other option was the neighbor’s yard which was a heavily covered landscaping that had a lot of plants and dried leaves. After an hour of searching he decided to call for the help of someone with a metal detector. After a google search he found my contact information.

When I talked to Craig on the phone he told me the basic story. He would be to meet me with permission to search the neighbor’s yard. Less than an hour later I met him and he went over the events that led to the loss of his ring. Then we walked into the location directly in front of where he had been working on the roof next door. It was definitely a place where a ring could be hiding. A perfect place to use a metal detector and/ or hand held pinpointer.

As I was adjusting the settings on my metal detector and beginning the swing my detector, Craig yelled, ” there it is”.
The whole planter was covered with dry leaves, but the ring actually landed in the only clear spot, on the edge of the cement patio. It had flown more 20 ft. off the edge of the roof.

This has happened more than a half a dozen times, when the person or someone else spots the lost item while I’m doing a search grid with my detector. What is most important is Craig has his most sentimental wedding ring back where it belongs. It was a pleasure to meet Craig and help him search for his ring.

Surfer Lost Keys in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Recovered with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

While detecting at Huntington City Beach a lifeguard patrol vehicle drove up to me asking if I could help a surfer find his car keys. Most of the lifeguards know me and know I’m a member of TheRingFinders. I’m always willing to use my detector and my experience to help people who need help.
The lifeguard took me to Michael who was frantically digging in the sand where he had buried his keys before going surfing. This is not the first time I have seen this type of loss.

Michael was frustrated because he has done this many times before with no problem. He was beginning to think that somebody had seen him hide the keys and had taken them.

I have learned that key search metal detector settings should be an all metal mode. If not you might get a null instead a good tone. It depends on the materials the keys and the ring is made of.

I swung my detector coil around the inside of a 2 ft. deep hole that Michael had dug. On one side of the hole there was a positive signal. It turned out to be Michael’s car keys. Another happy surfer that didn’t have to have his car towed or pay for a locksmith to replace his keys. Both the lifeguard and Michael know how to get a metal detector expert if they need a ringfinder in the future. There’s a ringfinder directory as near as your celphone or computer.
