Sentimental Silver Ring Found at San Clemente State Beach, CA. .. by Ringfinder Stan Ross

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)










Pricilla called asking if I could help her find a silver ring that she believed was lost the day before at San Clemente State Beach , CA.  She was at work when she called me and not available to meet me at the location.

It’s always best if the person that lost the ring can meet me at the location but she was able to send me a couple screen shots and photos that were taken to help me get in the general location. 

It was not a problem to go search the location without having Pricilla take time off from her work. Traffic was better for me to travel to short after she called. 

I arrived at the San Clemente State Park and was  able to avoid paying day parking because I always buy a yearly state beach parking pass. The walk down the hill was the hardest part of the search. Found the silver ring in the dry sand within a half hour of grid searching with my metal detector.

Pricilla met me that evening after work in a public location closer to her home. She was ecstatic and grateful to have this special sentimental keepsake back where it belongs.

*** JJ  was at Newport Beach, CA. with his family. He had been out in waist deep water playing with his kids when he felt his white gold wedding ring slip off his finger.  The key clues that gave me hope for a successful search were, he felt it come off his finger, during high tide, the location has a hard sand bottom and the next low tide was a minus low at 2am in the morning.

He sent me a couple photos that gave me great reference points. I went in the late afternoon to search the dry sand and down to the water. ( many times people do get confused about if the felt the ring come off ) … I returned at midnight to grid search the minus low tide. Only three pieces of metal trash. Then a strong low tone with perfect ID numbers for a big gold ring. The water was ankle deep. The sand was hard so the ring was only about 3 inches deep. 

The next morning I texted JJ with the good news. He wasted no time and drove to pick up his ring an hour after we talked. He was very appreciative and I could tell just by his presence that this ring meant the world to him.   I never get tired of doing this. Such a challenge and always a pleasure to meet someone I can help.

Metal Detecting Equipment and Training

I just added the Garrett AT Gold to the equipment list. I was looking for a machine that would perform really well on small gold items like diamond earrings and very small diamond pendants. The Minelab CTX 3030 manages well, but the prospecting (AT GOLD) hits these small items really well.

I purchased two small gold items from a local jewelry store for field testing and training purposes. The AT GOLD works amazingly well and should increase my recovery rate for these types of items.












Test Items























The New Garrett AT Gold
















First test run with the AT Gold at a nearby park






















The AT Gold picked out this small earring on its first test run along with some of the smallest specs of aluminum and other debris I have ever recovered.

My first impressions, the machine is awesome,  and it has already proven itself capable of finding micro specs of Au, Ag, and Pt.

Au: Gold

Ag: Silver

Pt: Platinum
