*** Viet had been surfing at Newport Beach, CA. Just before going into the water he realized he still had his platinum wedding ring on. It was too far back to his car, so Viet put his wedding ring in a pocket of his backpack.

That evening when he got home Viet discovered his ring missing from the back pack. He and his wife drove more that 30 miles back to Newport Beach searching that night in the dry sand with no luck. He returned at 6am the next morning using a loaner metal detector that the lifeguards gave him. 

After two hours he was totally frustrated and he took a few minutes to google search ideas on how to find a ring with a metal detector. That was how he found my information on TheRingFinders metal detecting directory. I live very close to where the loss occurred, so I was on the beach by 9am. Viet was totally frustrated and tired from the many hours of searching. He did feel that he was searching the wrong areas and suggested I try a spot on the beach where he recognized a piece of ribbon in the sand. 

I started my grid search in that location while Viet went to his car for some water. Before he got 30 yards away from me I got a strong signal in my headphones. After retrieving the target I could see the platinum wedding ring in my scoop. I got his attention before he got to his car. When he saw his ring, couldn’t hold back his emotions, he choked up and took a few deep breaths. The sentimental meaning of his wedding ring and the frustration of so many hours of searching for the ring was overwhelming. Now the relief of having his ring back was real after coming so close to thinking it was lost forever.

I wonder how many people walk away from sentimental keepsakes that could have been found if they only knew a service like TheRingFinders exists. Many people find our service by accident searching through the internet. We have members internationally in over 400 cities.

***** Janet and Paul were attending a family reunion at a beach front home near San Clemente, CA.  A beautiful home right on the sand with a couple dozen family members present when Janet lost her gold diamond wedding ring in the sand. 

The evening before calling me most every body set up their beach chairs in the sand only 20 ft. in front of the beach house. Janet put her two rings in the pocket of the beach chair. Then after moving back into the house she could only find the engagement ring in the chair pocket. The wedding ring had to be in the sand only a few  feet in front of the patio.  That night and the next morning many of the group tried their hand at finding her ring while everyone sat on the patio watching the search.

After almost a day after searching without finding the ring. Someone in the group found my contact information while trying to rent a metal detector. I was able to meet Paul shortly after he called me. Walking through the house I seemed to have a big audience of family who were curious to see if I could find the ring. After they had all tried, using fingers, rakes and sifting methodically with a sand crab sifting tool.

Setting up the detector to eliminate some of the electrical interference from the building, I began my 20ft. square grid search. The ring showed up on my second pass just as I was telling my onlookers not to get excited when I dig a target because I remove all metallic items as I search.

Everybody cheered and smiled as I held up the ring for Janet. Not all searches go this well. Metal detectors work real good for finding a ring if the ring is there. The right tool for the right job. Finger dragging, rakes and sand crab sifters are not very effective for finding and important irreplaceable sentimental piece of jewelry like a wedding ring. 

It still doesn’t bother me to search for hours to eliminate an area that may ring may be hiding. It’s all part of searching. Eliminate one area so you can go to the next possible hiding place. We post our successful finds but many people don’t realize that our unsuccessful searches lead into hour and hours of searching. It sometimes gets boring and discouraging. I still learn with every search and get more experience with each hunt, that’s rewarding.

Lost 18 kt gold ring from Italy found in Traverse City, Mi at the Grand Traverse Commons with a metal detector

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I received a call on Wednesday night about 6:00 pm from Allison about her husband Domenicks lost wedding band. The ring is 18 kt Gold that Domenicks Grandmother bought in Italy. They made a day trip to Traverse City, Mi to visit the Grand Traverse Commons. The Grand Traverse Commons are the old Traverse City State Hospital that opened in November of 1885. Due to modern medicine the Hospital closed in 1989. The ability to treat mental patients with pills was the demise of the hospital. Now renovated and occupied with a mix of residential, retail, restaurants, an event venue, Cordia, a senior residential community, and an ever increasing number of businesses and entrepreneurs.

So, back to the ring find. I went Wednesday night from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm and did not find the ring. On the picture below, I searched the green shaded area. Allison had told me the only thing she did was go from the car to the tree to pick up leaves. The ring was in an upper pocket of her shirt because Domineck was throwing a ball further out in the field. She though the ring fell out of her pocket when she bent over to pick up the leaves. She was not sure of exactly where the ring was lost, because they were at other places in town also. She did not realize the ring was missing till almost back home. A 3 hour drive from Traverse City. I could not go back till Sunday, they had a outside wedding in the area Saturday. Sunday morning I put the 17 inch coil on the Ctx3030 and was going to grid search a very large area. Her statement about Domenick throwing ball out in the field stuck with me. So, after about 50 foil signals, I was checking another and moved my coil to the side and saw the ring. I was in disbelief and just stared at it for about 10 seconds. For people who do not detect foil sounds just like a gold ring. The ring was in the field about 40 feet past the tree on the opposite side of the parking lot. I texted Allison right away with the good news. She said I made her summer. On Monday morning, I shipped the ring overnight back to them.

Lost Tungsten ring found with a metal detector Glen Haven Beach, Glen Haven, Mi

from Traverse City (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-231-499-7526

I got a text from Zach and Caitlyn that Zach had lost his Wedding ring at the Glen Haven Beach. Zach put the ring in a pocket in the side of the beach chair to go swimming. They had just left the beach and Caitlyn was searching the internet on how to find a Tungsten ring in the sand, one of my tagged blog post came up. They turned around and waited for me to drive the hour up to Glen Haven. I had them put a couple of my 4 foot snowplow stakes in the sand and made me a search area. It took about 3 minutes to find the ring less that 2 feet from one of the stakes. Zach thanked me for getting him out of the dog house. Zach and Caitlyns one year anniversary is coming up.

I was very happy to help and appreciate the reward.

It was a another sunny day in San Diego when I received a call asking for help from a lady in Mission beach who had lost her wedding rings.She said they had sifted through the sand and managed to find the band but not the main diamond ring.
I was just getting home from another lost ring search but immediately made a U-Turn and said I was on my way.

Upon arriving to the scene of the lost rings
I was shown a small 10X10 foot area where it disappeared into the sand.X-Marks the spot.I told her this wouldn’t take very long to find,Then could see the worries from her facial expression disappearing as well. I also had to park in a 15min loading Zone so a speedy recovery was Keene. I began a search with my state of the art Metal Detector and found the precious ring in just 1 beep..or a minute!

I surprised her with it in my sand scoop shovel while the tears with hugs electrified all around. These are the best kinda rewards when you feel like a hero or at least did a professional deed to help someone in need.

Lost Wedding Band…Caroline, Ab-Found!

from Caroline (Alberta, Canada)

 

 

 

 

A couple months ago, Rick came into our family feedstore, I had showed him an ad about The Ring Finders, that I had placed in a free publication and weekly buy and sell paper.  He told me, he lost his ring in his back yard 2 years ago, while playing football with his son. He had spent many hours looking for it, he even pulled all the grass, where it dropped. At the time, there was about 3 feet of snow on the north side of his house, and we agreed to search in spring.  I arrived at Ricks place, after work, he had just got off work as well.  He showed me the location, as well, I asked him many questions.  I was a little concerned when told me how many times he had cut his lawn, but I had to try and search.  Rick was very interested in the Garrett AT Gold, and asked all kinds of questions about the tones, and how did I know weather it was a nail, or ring etc.  Soon I got a hi tone, and an 81,  Rick asks, is that the ring!  I said, no, it’s a penny, and I can not leave a penny in the ground.  After searching for 1hour and 45 minutes, I got a nice mid tone at 60. 1 and 1/2 inch down was his wedding band.  Rick had given up hope of ever finding his ring, he didn’t have much hope of me finding it, esp when there was no signal, where he thought he lost it.  Rick, and his wife were very happy.

Saturday 7-25-15

Today,  four of our ringfinders met at Venice Beach to attend a skateboard competition for disabled kids “Life Rolls On” .. John Hughes, Curtis Cox, Steve Smith and myself met early for breakfast and a few hours of detecting before the event. After the event they headed home and I stayed a little longer to check out the Santa Monica pier using my Segway.
I was within a few blocks of returning to my car when Sofia called asking me if I could help her find a ring lost in the sand. When I asked her location she said Venice Bch. lifeguard tower #18. My detector was in my car parked in front of LG tower #19.
It was only 15 or 20 minutes till I met her and she told me that the ring had fallen out of her back pack. She marked an area she thought it might be. It only took a few minutes because she had not left the area. Thank goodness for cellphones and the Internet. It was located a few feet outside the location she marked, but that’s normal. Also, itwas a coincidence that I was so close because I live an hour away, when the traffic is good. It was a good day for all.
