 I recovered a one of a kind engagement ring that was designed by Diana’s husband’. The search was a little different with a few unknowns. She wrote the story of what had happened and how we found it.

THIS IS DIANA’S STORY …

I called Stan out of confusion and desperation: I thought I had left my engagement ring at home during a trip to the beach, but could not find it anywhere. I had a strange memory of holding it before I left, but could not remember where I put it down. Since it was nowhere to be found in my apartment, my next best guess was that I had absently-mindedly pocketed it and taken it to the beach with me. Perhaps it had fallen out of my shorts and onto the sand while I was sunbathing ? It was sort of a long shot, but I had to try. I contacted Stan through RingFinders.

Stan met me at the small beach in Malibu. He methodically combed through the sand for nearly two hours, but the ring didn’t show. We walked back to our parking spot and got into our cars, about to leave, when I received a picture from my friend. The photo showed the exact location where we had been laying out. I texted Stan and he kindly agreed to return to the beach with me and give it another go. Within 5 minutes, HE FOUND IT! I truly couldn’t believe it – – it was a miracle.

Suffice to say, if you have any suspicion that your jewelry may have fallen off into sand, or dirt, or bushes or any hard-to-comb area, call Stan. We could have easily given up – – especially when we weren’t 100% sure the ring even came to the beach with me in the first place – – but Stan stuck it out and found it. I absolutely could never have done it with out him. Now every time I look at my ring, I’m even more grateful, knowing how close it came to being lost forever. Thanks to Stan, it wasn’t.

She neglected to say, when we returned for our second search, the beach had filled up with more sunbathers, I was not sure I could search thoroughly. Fortunately the ring was found in an open space or I would have waited for the beach goers to leave.

***A diamond engagement ring was pulled off Susanna’s finger when she was hit by a large wave in waist deep surf. The same wave also washed high up the sloping beach to pull her beach bag with car keys and a cellphone into the surf.

Susanna called me after locating my information on line. We discussed the time of day of the loss so I could determine the height of the tide when the ring came off her finger. Very important was the fact that she immediately knew when and where the ring left her finger.

All Southern California beaches are different and the sand conditions change daily. Sometimes I can tell that our odds are better to find a ring that has been lost in surf when they tell me what beach. Most times you can’t tell if it’s going to a difficult search until you get to the site. I try to tell these facts to people that need my help before going on a call out.

Susanna met me the next afternoon at low tide. She was confident as to the area of the beach where she had been. I was prepared to search chest deep water if I had to. The sand and slope conditions looked perfect for a successful search and it was only one day since the loss.

Started the grid in knee deep water finding a few coins then a silver colored ring with a diamond stone. It was not her ring but conditions made me feel that Susanna’s ring could still be holding in this type surf/sand conditions. After a half hour working parallel to the beach I was able to find Susanna’s white gold diamond engagement ring that had three sparkling diamonds. It was at the very end of the area she laid out for me to search. The keys and cellphone were not found they were not the object of this search.

I went up onto the beach where Susanna was with her fiancé, Alex. When I held up the ring both of them started yelling with excitement and joy. Alex actually gave me a big hug trying to lift me off my feet. There wasn’t many people one the beach but a couple people came to see what had happened. This was probably one of the most emotional recoveries I’ve done.

Yesterday I received a call from Dean. He had taken his wedding ring off and put it in the cup holder of his beach chair before going for a swim. Later that day while packing up, His wife had folded up the chairs and as they began walking they realized he didn’t put it back on. By then the ring had fallen out of the chair and into the sand. His Sister brought them her metal detector to try and find it but didn’t have any luck. I made arrangements to meet them at this beach club. The club gave them my info since I did a recovery there about 2 weeks ago. Once I arrived, Dean showed me where they were sitting and the approximate path they took when they left. After a little over an hour I found his ring in the path they walked!. He told me he had little hope it would be found. I’m happy I was able to get it back to him. Him and his wife were very happy!! Another great day!

Earlier today I received a call From Mike & Michele. While introducing their adorable little baby girl to her very first beach experience Michele’s wedding band got lost in the sand. They were getting ready to start packing it in and when her husband Mike was giving her back her rings their shade tent and umbrella got swept away by a gust of wind. Mike was able to catch the tent and during that moment he had Michele’s wedding band on his pinky but it was no longer there. A friend of Michele’s referred her to me. I made plans to meet them at the spot they were at yesterday once i got home from work. Once I met them and they showed me the general area where to search I got right to work. After about an hour it had not turned up yet. So Mike asked a few people sitting nearby if they wouldn’t mind moving over a bit to where I already searched. They kindly obliged. Within my second pass I got a good signal and low and behold I found it! They were as happy as can be! A wonderful memory with their daughters first beach experience and Michelle having her ring back where it belongs! I love this hobby!!

 

Lost Diamond Wedding Ring in the Ocean at Catalina Island, CA.

An epic ring call with an amazing recovery in a cobble rock beach at Emerald Cove, Catalina Island, CA. four days after lost in the ocean. Catalina Island, sometimes known as the Island of Romance but this time it was not too romantic when Jacky lost her wedding ring at the island.

Dave Shenbaum’s sisters-in-law Jacky believed that her diamond wedding ring came off as she lifted her two small children into a shore boat. She was standing in knee deep water with a gravel type beach at Emerald Cove. Although she didn’t feel the ring slip off, she knew it was missing after getting into the dingy.

Dave put on his dive mask to search for over an hour to no avail. He knew he was not equipped with the right tools to ring a ring in this environment. This happened Friday and they returned to Redondo Beach the next day 26 miles across the channel. They had resolved that the ring was lost forever.

Dave, Manhattan Beach Fire Captain and lifeguard has used TheRingFinders to help people find valuable items for their owners. He contacted me Sunday at 4:30pm, asking if I’d be willing to go over to the island on his friend’s skiff or another larger boat.

We checked the tides and weather forecast to choose the best time to get to the site. Monday seemed the best but only allowed us a few hours to prepare.

I have never met Dave Shenbaum or Joe Bark retired fireman and I was a little apprehensive about jumping in a boat that I have never seen with strangers to cross the Catalina channel.

We met at the next morning to take the Joe’s ocean skiff to Emerald Cove. It would be the fastest and most maneuverable getting us to shore. Everything went like clock work we were almost like Navy Seals on a mission. I was on a small boat with trained first responders that have been on many rescues and other emergency situations. Can’t ask for better partners than that.

After an hour and fifteen minutes we landed on the gravel beach. Dave and I went ashore where he showed me his landmarks to where the loss occurred. It was low tide so I started at the waterline gridding parallel along the beach. Halfway on the third pass after I had dug two trash targets the next signal was the beautiful white gold diamond wedding ring. We took a few photos at the location then jumped in the boat for the return trip.

Arriving back a Redondo Beach King Harbor four hours round trip, including our search and photo-op.  Steve and Jacky Shenbaum met us at dockside not knowing we had already recovered her wedding ring. Dave held out his hand with a few pebbles from the beach and her ring. She did a quick double take then the tears of joy started to flow her husband Dave Shenbaum could not believe that his brother had set this recovery up and kept it a secret till he could surprise the both of them. This was definitely an epic ring recovery. I could not have done this without the help of Dave Shenbaum and Joe Bart two of Manhattan Beach’s finest.

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.

Alejandro told me his Cousin was boogie boarding when he hit the sand and broke his nose. During this mishap his gold and ruby ring which was his late Grandfathers fell off into the surf. I said I would go first thing in the morning during low tide to search for this family heirloom. My intuition paid off and I found the ring after a two hour hunt right when the tide was at its lowest point.

The loss happened on July 5th and I recovered it on July 7th. This is a popular beach for detectorists and we were lucky it was not found during this busy July 4th weekend.

**** 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

Tracy’s husband, Tony called me from Laguna Beach, CA. a couple of hours after she lost her diamond ring in the dry sand. Tracy had put her ring on her lap while applying sunscreen. After getting distracted she stood up and the ring fell into the sand. After a half hour she realized what had happened. The whole family searched dragging their fingers through the sand without success.

The lifeguard had suggested that they google search TheRingFinders.com. Tony called me for help and I ask if they could stay in the location till I got there. When I get a call out within a few hours of the loss and someone can put me in the general area. My metal detector is the perfect tool to find a ring or other precious metal keepsake.  

It didn’t take long to find this beautiful ring. Tracy was happy to get her ring back, but she felt a little embarrassed about the way she list the ring. I took the time to tell her that this happens very often. Many people don’t discover that they had lost a ring till they are miles away and don’t remember what they did that caused the loss.

Not all searches are this easy. My last three searches were not successful and each search was over 3 hours. The main reason I could not find the lost object was.. 1) too much time had passed.. 2) It was lost in a public area, probably picked up by a passer-by.. 3) the person didn’t know the general area of the loss, we sometimes can only eliminate an area that the person believes the loss occurred.

Thought of the day.. Don’t put rings on your lap when applying lotions, its a bad habit and has led to the loss of many rings.

The difficult searches are always a high feeling when the item is found. I love the challenge.
