I was out shopping today when I received an email from Russell asking for help finding his wife’s engagement ring. They had been out walking the day before when his wife swung her hand and her two rings (the wedding band and engagement ring) went flying off. Russell was walking behind his wife and was able to see the rings fly, and the location where they landed. The wedding band ended up rolling on the sidewalk, and was easily spotted and recovered. The engagement ring though landed in the mulch that bordered the sidewalk next to a short hedge. They looked around for it but were unsuccessful. Today Russell rented a metal detector to search for the ring and was again not able to find it. That is when he found me on The Ring Finders web site. I asked him to call me so I could ascertain the possibilities of a recovery, which he did. We arranged to meet about an hour later.

When I got to the area, Russell was waiting for me. He took me over to the spot and “walked” me through the loss. He showed me the stick he had placed at the spot so as to not forget where to begin his search. I then got my detector out and began a methodical search of the spot and surrounding area. I found numerous bits of foil, and other pieces of metal, but no ring. I then summarized that the ring may have bounced when it hit, and gone deeper into the hedge. I put the detector away, and got my pin pointer out to work in the hedge row. After about a 10-15 minute search, and outside of the search area I received a signal with the pin pointer down where the trunk of the hedge met with one of the large branches about 6-8 inches further into the hedge, at ground level covered with dead leaves, but could see nothing. I moved the many dead leaves and mulch out of the way, and then I saw it, the ring. I picked it up and turned to Russell and asked if this was what we were looking for. He got a big smile, but was amazed that it was not where he remembered seeing it hit. He and his wife have been married 1 1/2 years, and it was a blessing to be able to return this token of their love to them.

Keys Lost at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I had been detecting at the beach a couple of days ago without much luck, and was on my way back to my car when I happened to get a strong signal. I scooped up a bunch of keys on a ring. It looked like a fresh drop, so I figured I would try to get the keys to a lifeguard if possible. I continued on when up ahead of me, I saw a young man frantically working through the sand with his hands. He was about 100 feet from where I found the keys, so I figured he might have lost a ring. I got to where he was and asked if he had lost something, and he told me that he lost his keys. He was so far from where I found the keys, that I asked him to describe them, which he did; I had found his keys. I told him he was looking in the wrong place, that I had found them 100 feet down the beach, and pulled them out of my bag. He saw them, and could not stop thanking me. Robert’s day ended on a great note, and I was so glad I was able to help.

Wedding Ring Lost Christmas Eve at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

I was relaxing at home Christmas Eve afternoon when I received a call from Yogi. He was on vacation from Houston, TX to visit with family for the Holidays. He had lost his wedding ring at the beach while throwing a football to his family members. They had been there earlier in the day when it happened. They searched for the ring but could not find it. They talked of renting a metal detector, but it was Christmas Eve. One of the family members searched the internet, and found The Ring Finder’s web site where they located me. Yogi told me that he would meet me at the beach, and I told him I would be on my way.

When I got to the beach, I walked out and met with Yogi. He showed me how they had marked out the area of where he believed the loss to have occurred. The good thing was that he had been throwing away from the water, so I knew there would be a better chance of a recovery. I began a grid, and worked my way up and back getting a few faint signals, I dug them, but they were not fruitful. I then narrowed my search to a specific area, and made a few more passes, and on the turn of the last pass I got a good strong signal and dug again. There in the bottom of my scoop was Yogi”s ring, the 24K gold band gleaming in the sunshine. I held it up while he was taking pictures of his family. He did not notice at first, but the rest of the family saw the ring and began clapping and shouting for joy which caught Yogi’s attention. He looked up, and with a great big smile came over and accepted his ring. What a joy it is to restore someone’s joy to them.

Yogi sent me this testimonial to include here:

Steve!  Thank you again so much!

I was spending time with my family during the holidays in 2017 on Newport beach, and happened to be tossing a football with my cousins.  About an hour later, I noticed my wedding ring was missing.  I had a feeling that it happened during the football toss.  I had mentioned it to my wife about me misplacing it, she was not too thrilled.

My cousin and I rushed back to the spot, but couldn’t locate the ring.  He pulled up a site called Ring Finders on the web, and told me to call. I called and Steve Smith picked up and said that he was on his way.  I asked how much the service was, and he said whatever we felt we wanted to pay. This was Christmas Eve so we were a bit worried about any one actually working.

Steve arrived, and I told him what had happened. I showed him the area where I felt it could be and he asked me a few questions and then proceeded to work.  I was back to my family and within 10 minutes, everyone started cheering.  I looked back and Steve was walking towards me holding the ring in his hand.

I couldn’t believe that within such a short time, he was able to produce the ring!  We chatted for a few minutes, and he told me about his method.  Best part of our conversation was the reason why he did it, he said it was THAT moment when he finds the item and how the mood changes in an instant!

Very thankful that Steve was available and he was able to locate something very important to myself and family.  Thank you a ton RING FINDERS!

Gold Ruby Ring Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

I got a call yesterday from Deena regarding a ring she lost at the beach. She was there with some friends and their dogs having a fun time, when she picked up a ball to throw for one of the dogs. She made an underhand throw, and as the ball left her hand, so did her ring. She thought it should be where the ball had landed, so she and her friends looked and looked with no results. She found me on the internet, and I asked a few questions, and then let her know I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I arrived, I found them down on the beach where the loss occurred, and Deena proceeded to show me what had happened. She had thrown towards the water which worried me a bit because the tide was coming in and the wave action was a bit intense at the water line. I began where they believed the ring had gone going up and down the slope getting a bottle cap, a few pennies and a quarter, but no ring. I then went down closer to the water when it receded and made a few grids there. They really did not believe it was that far, so I came back up and decided to cross grid the area I had already searched, but with a much wider grid. I made 3 more passes, and was way outside of the original search area when I got a real good signal in the head phones. I put the scoop in, shook it out, and there in the bottom was a cool looking custom gold ring. I reached in and held it up to Deena’s and her friend’s surprise. They had no idea that the ring would have gone so far to the left of where she had thrown the ball. Rest assured, we as Ring Finders know to look out of the box, because a lot of times rings seem to do the impossible. I was so glad to have made 3 wonderful smiles yesterday. A great time!

I received a call yesterday from David, a friend of the gentleman who lost his wedding ring. He told me that the ring was lost while folding the beach chair getting ready to head for home. They had searched until his friend had to leave for home because his young child was getting cold and needed rest. David though said he would remain until I came to look for the ring, and I was on my way.

When I got there, I found David. Fortunately he had another friend who remained with him. They showed me the spot of the loss, and I readied my equipment for the search. The area was not very large so I knew the search would be a short one. It was important that they remained in the exact area, and marked the spot where they believed the loss to have occurred. I began my search, and found a quarter, and then continued on. I got another good signal, and it took me a couple of scoops to get the target. I looked in the scoop, and there was a ring of the type they explained to me. David then called his friend and did a “Face Time” with him showing him the ring. He was very happy, and I got to see his smile. …but what a great couple of friends he has, who would stay behind and wait for me to conduct my search. I think David’s smile says it all!

Diamond Heirloom Ring Lost in Corona, CA…Found And Joyously Returned.

I received a call from Jason yesterday who had lost his ring while doing yard work that morning at his house. The ring had a diamond that had been given to his father by his grandmother. His father then had it made into a ring to be passed down to successive generations. Jason was the first to have received the ring in succession, and had looked forward to passing it to his own son. He had mowed his lawn, and also cleared a lot of his flowerbeds of leaves and debris, and in the process realized his ring was missing. He was concerned that it might be in the flower beds, or worse, in one of the trash cans that were scheduled for pick up. He said he would be there if I came right away, so I left immediately.

When I got there Jason took me to the area he had cleaned, which also had the trash cans there for inspection. I decided to search the cans first to eliminate them as a possibility. We took the first can and emptied its contents on the pool deck to search. I spread out the leaves and the thick green grass from the freshly mowed lawn, and began my search. Nothing in the leaves, but then in the grass, which had been at the bottom of the large can, I got a good sound. I took out my pin pointer, and began to move the thick grass around looking for the metal I heard. There deep in the grass appeared Jason’s ring. He was so happy, knowing it could have been lost forever if it had gone out with the trash. What a great smile!

Antique Diamond and Platinum Wedding Ring Lost at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

Monday afternoon I received an email from Veronica heartbroken that she had lost her wedding ring at the beach. She explained how she had been in the water when a wave crashed into her, and as she tried to maintain balance, her ring flew off of her finger. This is a ring she saved up for, and it is also over 100 years old, so there was a great personal significance in this loss for her. I got the area from her. She told me that the ring was lost at high tide, so I figured the best approach would be to go at low tide, which was at 10:30 PM. I let her know I would go at about 7:00 PM to begin my search, and stay until after the low tide to insure I covered the whole area, and that I would report back to her no matter what the outcome.

I got to the area, and began my search. I put on chest waders to insure I could get out in the water for a complete search. The sand was soft and would have swallowed up her ring in an instant. I was a bit worried because I was only finding a few light objects, can slaw, pull tabs, and a couple pieces of wire. I made a grid to the North, because that is the way the current was moving parallel to the beach. I worked out about 70 to 80 feet with no luck, I then decided to work my grid South while the tide was still going out. I continued my grid, 1 pass, 2, 3, and then on the 4th pass received a good signal, dug, dumped my sand, turned my headlamp on, and there could see the curved shiny shape of a ring; 10:00 PM. I reached down, and brought up this beautiful diamond ring.

I emailed Veronica right then to let her know that I had found her ring, but she didn’t get the message until the next morning. She replied with great excitement, so I asked when we could meet for the return. She told me she was very busy for the next couple of days, and wasn’t sure when she would be able to break free for the return. I knew she really wanted her ring back, so I asked if I could drive out to the dentist where she was taking her children for their cleaning. She agreed to do it that way, and we met at the dentist building. She was so excited to have her ring back, I got a couple of great hugs, and got to see a wonderful smile appear where I know 2 days before there was none. What a day!

Diamond Engagement Ring Lost In Altadena, CA…Found and Returned.

Nathan called this morning needing help with his wife’s lost engagement ring. She had been playing with her dog, and throwing the ball to be retrieved, when with one throw both her engagement ring and wedding band flew off of her hand. Nathan said he heard the ring hit their car which was parked nearby. They proceeded to look in the area, when they found her wedding band in a bush near where the car was parked in the neighbor’s yard. They continued the search in and around where the wedding band was found, but with no success. His wife rented a metal detector the next day and proceeded to search again, Nathan then took up the search with the metal detector when he got home. He told me he could not believe all the metal that was in the yard, which was making the search harder for him with the rented detector. He said he put at least 20 hours of searching for the ring himself not to mention the time his wife and neighbors put in helping. He told me the grass was very high in the neighbor’s yard, and he suspected it was lost in the thick grass somewhere. He also said that the gardeners were scheduled to come today and mow the yard, so I knew I should hurry in order to beat them to the high grass, and arranged to leave immediately. Nathan was at work, so he was unable to meet me there, but gave me directions and photos to show where things had taken place.

I had a few delays on the way with some traffic and an accident, but finally got there at what I thought was a decent time. When I pulled up though, the gardeners were already there, and had mowed the yard, could they have already found it? My heart sank. I called Nathan to let him know, and he told me that he would come over at his lunch hour. This was a good thing, as I would be able to ask exactly what had happened. I searched the areas that he had pointed out to me, and finally searched the whole yard. I should have heard the ring, but nothing but some foil and pull tabs. Nathan showed up at lunch, and we went over what had happened. There was a definite trajectory of her throw that he showed me, so I concentrated in those areas that would possibly be affected; nothing again. I got out another detector that has a faster recovery, figuring that the ring could be getting masked by some iron in the ground, and began my search again. Nathan was helping with more possibilities, but nothing. I decided to search the yard again, and Nathan had to go back to work. I searched the yard again with no ring. I then decided that I could not remain in the box, so I stood in the line of trajectory, and backed up. I kept backing up, onto the neighbor’s porch, surely it would have been seen there. As I was standing there I looked left, the porch dropped off to the ground and there was a 6 tp 7 inch gap between the porch and the house about a foot deep. I saw something silver and round, but thought I was looking at half a buried pull tab. Upon closer inspection, it was the ring. There it was another 50 feet from where the wedding band had been found. Nathan’s wife must have thrown that ball with a Kershaw type of pitch, because it was a total of about 70 feet from where she had been standing. I sent Nathan a picture of the ring, asking if this was what it looked like, when he immediately called, and said he would come back in about 45 minutes. I told him I would wait. Needless to say he was very happy. I know that he and his wife will sleep well tonight, that’s what it is all about.

I received an email from Pierra this morning explaining how she had lost her engagement and wedding rings the evening before. She had them “safely tucked away”, when her small child apparently opened up the purse and dumped them into the sand. They were unable to find them, but did not contact me until this morning. This worried me, because I know that this beach is meticulously cleaned by the county daily, and I feared the rings may have been swept up by the mechanical sifting machines. Her husband called, and I agreed to meet Pierra at the spot, because I know that not everything happens as we think.

When I got to the area, and was shown by Pierra where they had been sitting, I was encouraged because I could see that the sifting machines had gone through the area, but not where she had been sitting. I began to search where she showed me, and found a dime. I made a few more passes when Pierra came over to say that she thought the area might be a bit more South of my search area because of some trash she had recognized from the day before. I then lined up in that spot and began a new grid. After a few more passes, I got a good signal and dug. I checked my scoop and saw a real nice diamond band, so I asked her how many rings were involved; she said two. I scanned the remainder of the sand I had removed, and recovered her engagement ring as well. She was very happy, and with great joy to have her rings back on her finger. It was a great opportunity to see such a wonderful smile, and to know that after a tough night’s sleep last night, tonight’s sleep for her will be sweet.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Mission Viejo, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call from Anna last Wednesday for a lost diamond wedding ring. When I spoke to her, I asked the most important questions, and when done it was decided that the ring should be in the yard where she had been sitting with her husband. She had given the ring to her husband while they were visiting her cousin. When the day was done, she asked her husband for the ring, and it was gone. I arranged to meet the next morning to do a good thorough search.

When I got to the house, Anna’s cousin showed me the area which was a pretty good patch of grass which could hide a ring easily. I proceeded to search, and searched the whole area only finding some bottle caps. I went and got another detector with a better recovery, and searched it again, nothing. I knew the ring was not in that yard. Anna’s cousin had left for work, and Anna’s God Daughter stayed with me, also named Anna. I spoke to young Anna, and explained that there was no way the ring was in that yard, and that we should back track every where they had been the other day. She showed me a patch of grass that led to the pool, which seemed like a good search. I began my search there, and had it almost complete, when Anna’s God Daughter came running up saying she found it! There in her hand was a beautiful 3 diamond ring. She had taken my advice to retrace their steps, and while I was searching the grass, she went to where they had been parked 3 days earlier, and there on the asphalt under a car was Anna’s ring. Amazing! Sometimes we can help by just thinking things through for people. I have helped people find their rings just by talking them through the loss, and it ends in the same way, joy for the person who thought that what they had lost for good was found again.
