**** Jennifer was given a set of custom diamond stud ear rings by her parents, celebrating her graduation from law school. Each of the ear rings consists two pieces and a backing. One piece is called a jacket which the diamond stud is inserted.

Jennifer had been in the back yard of her Huntington Beach, CA. home hold her son when she realized her earring was missing. The backing was still on her ear. Women know that these backings sometimes stay on their ears after losing the earring.

Both her husband and Jennifer checked the grass small grass area where she discovered her earring missing. Her husband decided that he could remove some of the undesirable grass while doing the search. She knew there was a possibility that the earring could have hung up on her son’s clothing or her hair. So they also searched places around the patio and in the house before calling me for help. 

When I arrived Jennifer’s brother was walking to his car with a metal detector. He was totally upset with the detector realizing he didn’t understand how to operate it.

I have invested in a detector with high frequency settings that is very efficient for finding small stud earrings which have very little metal settings. Most detectorists know how difficult stud earrings can be to locate with a detector. Also most pinpointers can’t hit on a white gold stud earrings. Many times these stud are found by eye after finding the backing.

I started my search on the grass and soon found the larger jacket piece of the earring but the stud was not found. ( I placed a marker right away) . I couldn’t get another signal. Then went to the trash can to detect through the pieces of grass removed from the area. Lastly I removed four non ferrous screws from that 5’x 5’ grass area. Using two other detectors the stud was not detectable. 

Before leaving I gave Jennifer a exclamation of how difficult it is to find a stud. I could not tell her it was not in the same location I found the larger piece (jacket). I actually told her it might be findable by eye but could be just seeing the stud not the diamond. It was hard to walk away. 

The next day Jennifer called another detectorist. Who also had a high frequency detector with could get signals off the other stud earring. He was unable to find the diamond stud.

Here’s the miracle. The next day after being totally frustrated and confined to her house because of Covid. Jennifer went to the area I marked after finding the jacket. Using a kitchen fork and began to move some of the damp soil around the grass. She found the small stud 6” from the marker. When she texted me she said all she saw was a glimmer of silver color (white gold). She thanked me for finding the first piece that gave them the best possible location to search.

I know the limitations of my equipment and there is always the possibility that small metals can be masked by larger pieces of metal.

I think this stud was most likely laying in an odd angle, maybe with the diamond downward?

Happy to know Jennifer has her very sentimental set of earrings.

***Received a call at 8pm asking for help finding a ring lost in the dry sand at Santa Monica Beach, CA. Dave’s father called me after his son and his friends spent half the afternoon searching for Dave’s gold wedding ring had come off his finger while throwing a football.

It was already dark and most the public parking lots are closed after sunset. We were lucky that they have private parking area in front of their beach house. We were still dealing with the public beach morning cleaning crews, so I set up to meet them a 9pm. If they were available to walk me out to the general area of the loss it could be an easy search. It would not be wise to wait for the next morning.

It was perfect to park so close to the location of the loss. If the private parking wasn’t available the next best option would require a long walk. 

Dave walked with me out to the main beach and it didn’t take long to find his wedding ring. He was very relieved to have his ring back where it belongs. Also, as most these quick searches go. He was amazed at how easy it seemed to be using a metal detector. I took a few minutes to explain that not all metal detectors work well in salt/ mineralized sand and metal detectors take time to learn how to use them. It’s always best to get a person that has experience using a metal detector.

Engagement Ring Lost in Cypress, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

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!

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

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!
