*** Kristal had been married less than a month before losing her white gold diamond wedding ring. She lives in an apartment complex with a nice work out gymnasium near the pool. She walked the half block from her apartment to do a routine exercise session. She had not left her new wedding at her residence, so she wrapped it in her face mask putting in a hand bag. Her idea was protect it from being scratched.

After exercising she walked back to the apartment along a sidewalk. She had been holding the face mask in her hand but didn’t put it on. When she got back home the ring was missing.

One week of checking the grass along the sidewalk, reporting the loss to management, the gardeners, community online forum and posting flyers the ring was still missing.

Kristal called me saying that I was her last hope. We met and she walked me through where she had been when the ring disappeared. The first thing I told her was we are beginning the search now as we walk the path she took that evening. We got to a street crossing and she didn’t want to go any further. I asked that she show me the entire route to make sure I can clear the grassy hiding places. I had not set up to use my metal detector.

As we walked, we visually spotted the white gold diamond wedding ring on the surface of the grass. It had survived the lawnmower and many people that could have easily spotted it. Kristal was more than elated, a very happy and amazed young bride. She told me that she’d  never forget this moment.

This has happened several times where we spot the missing item on the initial walk through. What made this different was that it was lying there for over a week and she said, she had probably walked passed it 20 times. Also, it was a very public area with lots of foot traffic. Moral to the story, “Don’t give up just before the miracle happens

**** Faye and her husband Riley were at Huntington City Beach, Orange County, CA. with their two young sons. She had lost her wedding ring near their beach blanket after removing it to apply sun screen.. The area of the loss should have been in a 20’x20’ area.

They had another person with a metal detector searched the location with no success. I was called, asking if I was close enough to help. Fortunately I was just a mile away and was at the location within 15 minutes. 

When I arrived Riley described the ring as a small white gold woman’s wedding ring that had small diamonds 3/4 around the band. These can be elusive especially if laying on edge in the sand. Then they did recall two incidents where she went outside the original search site.

They had been searching for several hour by now. As I completed 5 passes of my grid, Riley got a call from his wife who was waiting in the car a the parking lot. She told Riley that this was ”MisSion Impossible ” she was ready to give up and go home.

At the very same moment I dug the signal discovering her wedding ring in my sand scoop. He was elated, then without calling his wife, we walked over to the parking lot. He approached the car not saying a word. He held up the ring for Faye to see. Boom! her eyes lit up then the tears of joy started to flow. We still didn’t under stand why the first detector missed the ring. The ring was recovered and back where it belongs.The important thing was the ring was found. . A very happy couple and it was a pleasure to be a available to help them..

**** I was called to help Ella find her engagement ring that she thought may have been lost at Laguna Beach, CA.

Ella and her fiancé had been staying at a hotel on the beachfront. The weather had been a bit chilly, keeping people off the beach. Ella regularly works out with a hula hoop, so she thought it would be nice to work out on the beach with her hula hoop. She was sure her engagement ring was on before walking to the beach. After returning to the room she discovered her heirloom engagement ring was missing. The situation involved walking to and from the beach plus an hour and a half of walking two or three blocks at waterline of the beach.

I met her shortly after she called me. We were fortunate that the tide was receding. It was going to be raining so I came prepared with rain gear. We were not quite sure that the ring had been lost at the beach area, but that was where she did the most physical activity. I told Ella that if the ring was there, I could find it. If it didn’t show up we can eliminate that area, so she can check the other locations she had been.

Ella couldn’t stay, which was a good thing. I knew that this was going to be a long search. After three and a half hours, there was just a small area remaining. I was already trying to think of what I would text Ella. Then I got a strong signal that turned out to be Ella’s ring. I was surprised and happy that I could send a successful recovery text with a photo of the ring. 

She replied right away saying she had given up hope and had figured I didn’t stay to search in the rain. We met two days later when she had time to pick up the ring. This was my first hula hoop ring loss and recovery. What’s next?

… John and his wife were enjoying their last day of their vacation at Santa Monica Beach, CA. He stood up near their blanket in the dry sand brushing sand off his leg, when his gold wedding ring went flying into the sand.

He was able to locate me online at TheRingFinders website. I made arrangements to meet him at the location  Our main concern was that he had to catch a flight back to Denver, Colorado soon. He might only have 15 minutes to show me the area of the loss. I suggested that he mark the spot with some markers and continue to grab into the sand. There was always a chance that traffic could delay my arrival.

I parked very close to our meeting place. They were still at the location. It was one of those quick recoveries because John called me shortly after the accidental loss and he stayed at the location. All searches are not this easy but we at TheRingFinders know how to conduct a proper search using the most efficient metal detecting equipment. 

John and his wife were able to catch their flight home with his wedding ring on his finger.

Gold Wedding Band Lost in Snow McMinnville OR – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Portland (Oregon, United States)

In the woods North of McMinnville, OR was Tim’s white gold wedding band hidden under the lingering snow of winter. Asked if I could find it, I replied, “sure can, what happened”. While installing chains and/or shoveling a 30yd path to get on some solid ground Tim’s ring came off. After a beautiful 12 mile drive amongst the timber we arrived on site. I surveyed the area, installed the large coil on my Equinox 800, and got to work. After several passes and a short dig in 3″ of snow I had the ring in hand. “Relieved” among many other words, handshakes, as well as a big grin on Tim’s face expressed his relief and gratitude. It was clear this ring was important to him… he said it also had an engraving inside from his wife Mindy.

Wedding Band Lost on Beach Manzanita, OR – Found by The Ring Finders Portland & The Gorge

  • from Portland (Oregon, United States)

Antone called and asked if the Coastal town of Manzanita, OR was to far for me to drive; “No, I’ve found a few rings for folks along the coast over the years, nearly no distance is to far!” My wife’s ears perked up when she overheard me say beach and the 3 ½ hr trek began early the next morning. Once on site, I met Antone, Lyndsey, their bundled up newborn & dog; they were there for a few days of needed relaxation and leaving the next day. There was a staked deep hole & a staked pile of sand where they had hand searched/sifted. I searched the hole first figuring they must have missed it and then the pile. About 4-6” under the pile was the heavy Tungsten ring… mission complete. Disbelief, hand shakes, and talking followed then I recalled my wife was still in the car knitting; I often lose track of time when I’m talking with such nice people who are curious and appreciative.

Metal Detector Specialist Recovers Stud Earring in Grass .. City of Orange, CA

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

“I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136

… Kristen had taken her afternoon walk with her children and their dog. They were at a neighborhood park when she went to adjust her small stud style earring. The dog got a little excited pulling on her hand that held the earring and it went flying into the grass. 

Several of her neighbors attempted to find the stud earring. They even had a metal detector which couldn’t find her favorite piece of jewelry.

The next day, one of Kristen’s friends suggested that she go online to call a ring finder. That was how she found me. I met her a couple hours after our phone conversation.

Kristen had the matching earring which helped me set up my metal detector. We walked a couple blocks to the park where she showed me a small area in the grass, 10’ x 20’. She couldn’t stay which wasn’t necessary because I had all the information I needed.

I decided to use my high frequency settings on my metal detector. The search site was fairly free of metal trash signals which helped to make it a quick recovery. Also,  the earring was .925 silver making it an easier target to identify. 

After getting the signal I was looking for, I took a look into the grass and the only thing visible was the thin post. It seems to be normal for these stud earrings to fall with the heavier end downward. 

It was a good feeling to recover this because these small earrings are always a challenge. Kristen was very happy to get this back. It had special sentimental meaning to her.

Exactly why I love being able to do these recoveries.

Wife Loses Husband’s Hierloom Gold Diamond Ring in City Lake .. Lawndale, CA. .. Los Angeles County

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

*** Memo called me, telling me his wife was upset because she had lost a ring in a city lake while feeding ducks. I assumed she had lost her ring but she had actually lost an hierloom ring that was Memo’s. A ring that had belonged to his father that was given to him by his late father.

The day of the loss, Joanna had taken the ring to have it cleaned. On her way home she stopped by the city park lake to feed the ducks. She was wearing the ring on her finger because she thought it was safest place to keep it. As she was feeding the ducks she felt the ring slip off her finger and heard it splash in the lake.

That night Memo returned to the lake with a flashlight spending a couple hours hoping he could recover the ring. The next day he had  a guy with a metal detector search the area without success.

I met Memo and Joanna the third day after the loss of his very sentimental ring. They were upset and losing hope of ever finding this ring. It was helpful to have Joanna there to show me the place she had been standing and how she was gently tossing bread crumbs with a underhand motion.

The lake has a cement bottom without metal rebar which was a good thing. On the other hand the cement bottom made it difficult to retrieve flat metal objects, like coins and pull tabs. I started by dragging a high power magnet through the 20’x 40ft area to remove all the ferrous metals. This lake is more than 50 years old and was surprisingly clean of trash except for many coins. 

I was able to get out to shoulder deep water using a 6” coil which is more efficient in areas with many metal objects which can mask a ring. My plan was to clear this zone before having to dawn my Nemo surface air supply for searching deeper water.

I started off using discriminating modes of my detector. Then I went to all metal mode to remove any signals that can interfere with the detection of the ring. It was a tedious search and time consuming, yielding more than 50 coins.

After more than three hours of searching the relatively small area. Joanna and Memo had been patiently standing by waiting and I’m sure they were losing hope that the ring would be found. They even asked me if I thought the ducks could have eaten the ring. 

Joanna was going to get us some coffee. Just after I told her what I would like. I took one more scoop to retrieve a signal and BOOM!! .. Big Gold and Diamond ring in the scoop.

Right away I told Memo to stop Joanna. I was finished searching. He looked confused why I said that. He said, why? That’s when I held out the scoop saying, because I found your ring.

It was a great reunion of this so sentimental ring. After three days of searching and looking at a real possibility of not finding the ring. Within seconds everything turned into a joyful moment for everyone, including myself.

What an awesome couple and a special pleasure to be able to help Memo and Joanna. A moment to remember forever.!!

Huntington Beach Volleyball Player Lost Sentimental Military ID Tag in Sand .. Called The Ring Finders Directory for Help

*** Leor had lost a military dog tag while playing volleyball at Huntington State Beach. It had belonged his father and he wears it everyday. It was very sentimental to him. Leor had noticed his broken chain before leaving the sand volleyball court. He and his friends search by hand without finding it.

Leor was driving home to San Diego when he called me. We discussed the circumstances of the loss which gave me hope that I could find the metal ID tag. There are about 20 volleyball courts in this area of the beach. He told me it had to be a court number 15. 

I was able to get to the beach soon after the call. It wasn’t necessary to have Leor at the site. When I arrived there were a group of 10 or 12 players practicing on that court and I didn’t want to ask them to let me search. When they finished I began to grid the court. Then I was informed they were not finished playing. I courteously came off the court. While waiting for another shot at the sandy court, I search to sideline areas around the boundaries. Eight feet outside the court on the opposite side where Leor had felt the loss occurred, I found the missing SS metal military ID tag. I was basically using up time waiting to get back to the search zone. It was definitely a surprise to me but we do know how many recoveries happen when we search outside the box.

Leor was more than excited when I called him with the good news. He arranged for his friend, Ben to pick up this ID tag. Ben did tell me how much this item means to Leor. This is what makes my day.

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in House.. Venice, CA. .. Found in Trash

I call this a Pre-Christmas Miracle … It’s really difficult to search for a ring in a house. First of all, normal metal detectors do not work inside of houses because there is electrical interference and many nails, screws, etc. In the construction materials. There are also many hiding places for items as small as a ring. Over the years of doing ring searches, occasionally I will do house searches.  Even if I don’t find the item, I have been told by people that I helped them locate the lost article.

Sara called me three days after she lost her diamond engagement ring in her small home. She was devastated as she only had it for three weeks. I normally suggest places for the person to search and to give it few days before making plans for me to do a search.

We discussed what she remembered and it seemed like I could at least check the most difficult nooks and crannies. I do use an endoscope camera along with mirrors and high intensity lights. Of course there seems to be a few places that I can use the handheld metal detector ( pinpointer ). I set up to meet Sara the next day. Later after to call, I texted Sara, asking her not to throw the trash away even though she had told me she searched it.

Long story, short! After two hours in the three rooms she had been the morning of the loss. I gave Sara my my ”I can’t find it” pitch,  giving her hope that she still had many places it could hide and from my experience with these searches, it will show up.

Then I remembered that I had not checked the trash bags that she had set outside the on the steps. We dawned our rubber gloves. We proceeded to go through each hand full of trash using my pinpointer detector. Just before getting to the bottom of the first bag of trash there was a glimmer of yellow gold on the very bottom. It was Sara’s beautiful gold diamond engagement ring. Sara had missed it when she searched the trash, day one. I came very close to forgetting to search this trash bag.

”I Believe In Miracles ”.. I hope I never take these miracles for granted. 

It’s beyond words to express what I saw watching Sara at the moment we spotted the ring in the bottom of the trash. After the first few minutes passed, she got on her phone calling her loved ones with the good news.
