Lauren’s parents had passed down their wedding rings to Lauren to be used for her marriage next week. The unique gold ring that her father had worn for over 35 years was lost three hours after they gave them to her. Lauren had put both rings on her fingers till she could put them in a safe place. 

She was at her new home that was in the process of being remodeled when her whole day turned into panic. Her project for the day was to organize some of the boxes stored in the garage. Also, unpack a few of the boxes of items to go into kitchen cupboards. We also had an area of the front yard where she had removed some weeds.

Timing was important because Lauren was able to recall most of the places she had been. We did a quick grid of the front yard where I could use my big metal detector. Then the kitchen area boxes and wrapping where I could use the handheld pinpointer metal detector. Last place was the garage that had 30 or 40 boxes plus the floor area around them. Starting at one side, we opened each box and it was helpful that Lauren could remember the boxes she didn’t open. 

The ring showed up in a box of halloween decorations that she had searched without success before calling me. It was great to see how happy she was and the look of relief on her face. We definitely saved many hours of grief if it wasn’t found. It could have been next Halloween till she opened this box again. I was kind of hopeful that the ring would show up inside one of the boxes as this has been the action in past searches that caused rings to slip from fingers.

Kim and Alex were visiting Santa Monica beach while on vacation from New Jersey. Alex handed his wedding ring to Kim to hold so he could do a short workout on the athletic rings. Shortly after that she dropped the platinum wedding band in the sand. It disappeared immediately and their attempts to find it were unsuccessful.

Alex had tried to ask some of the local businesses if there was any place to rent a metal detector. Someone told him to google search TheRingFinders.com .  I was in my car on the freeway when I got the call from Alex. After hearing what had happened, I asked if they could stay at the location and assured him that we could find it if they could stay there. I was able to get there 45 minutes later and found a parking less than a block away. ( that’s a miracle).

The rest of the story was simple. Timing and the fact they could stay at the location made it easy to find the ring. It took me longer to turn on and setup my detector than it did to actually find the ring. Losing a ring in the sand can be frustrating if you don’t have the right tool to find it. Also there are search areas can be littered with other metal trash. I have done searches where a dozen  people have spent hours searching with sifting tools and cheap detectors and couldn’t find the lost ring. I’m sure there are many times when people walk away thinking it was lost forever. They don’t know that TheRingFinders is a world wide directory of metal detector specialists with experience finding and returning sentimental keepsakes.

Alex told me the wedding ring was special to him because  it was made by his father who is a jeweler and he has worn it daily since his marriage.

Later Monday night after I had found the ring at Hermosa Beach, Feliz called me about a ring she lost at Manhattan Beach. She had been there earlier in the day, and gone in the water, but before doing so, she wisely removed her ring and placed it in her jacket pocket. After coming out of the water, and forgetting that she had placed the ring in the jacket pocket, she moved things around, and left the beach. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later at the gym that she realized her ring was missing. Someone she knew had found The Ring Finders site on the internet, and told her about us, where she was able to contact me. She told me the ring had special meaning to her, and she would appreciated it I could help her find it. I said I would be there in 30-40 minutes.

When I got there we met, and Feliz took me down to the beach to show me where she had been. The problem was that it was a little after 8:00 PM, and in the darkness it was difficult for her to find any landmarks that could help her find exactly where she had been sitting, so she gave me a pretty good swath of beach to go over. I knew I would be finding quite a lot of things just because of so much sand to cover, and was hoping she would not get too discouraged with the search. As I anticipated I found a lot of bottle caps, foil, some coins, and other metal, but no ring. She looked at photos she had taken while she was at the beach earlier, and we were able to figure out approximately where she was sitting in regards to the towel line, so I expanded my search. For most of this time Feliz had been looking herself, and also coming over to see what I had found, but then she just went over and sat down. I have seen this level of discouragement set in on a long search, but I know from experience that until you have covered every base, the search is not over. I kept working out, away from the slope, when one more good signal. I scooped it up and there was the ring. I grabbed it and called out to Feliz. She jumped up and ran over. When she saw the ring, and identified it as the one she lost earlier, she immediately broke down with emotion. She explained that the ring was her father’s, a man she so adored, and he had passed from this life just one month ago; my heart broke. This ring was something of his that she would wear to allow her to be close to him, and to lose it…well, I just can’t put that into words. What a wonderful day Monday was, and some awesome smiles. So glad to have been able to help Feliz restore her joy.

Ryan called yesterday. He was at the beach with his friends, and playing beach games. When playing beach racquet ball, he swung at the ball, and felt his ring fly off of his finger. The good thing is that they had not moved form the area, and knew and approximate area of where the ring had come off. I let him know that I would come right away because time is always the enemy in a loss at a public beach or park area.

When I got to the beach I found that parking was crazy, so not to waste time I found a parking spot about 1 1/2 miles away, but on occasions such as busy weekends I bring a Segway MiniPro. I grabbed all my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and was at the spot of the loss within minutes. I walked out to the area, and Ryan showed me what had happened. I explained what I would be doing to conduct my search, and that I would show him everything I found. I began and found a bottle cap, a penny, another bottle cap, another bottle cap, another penny, then boom, a real good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a real nice heavy ring. I held it up, and Ryan was very excited. This ring had been custom made for him by his fiancé, and given in preparation for their upcoming marriage. He gave me a big hug, and everyone celebrated the recovery; what a great day!

Kellen called, he had lost his wedding ring in the harbor where he, family, and friends had rented a house for their vacation. Across the street from where they were staying was a little beach with a swim platform about 70 feet out in the water. While he was walking to the swim platform, he was fingering his ring trying to make sure it did not fall off, but it was a little loose to start with and it slipped off of his finger to his surprise. He immediately tried to catch it but it was already gone in the chest deep water. This was the ring his wife had given him 10 years ago when they were married, and he didn’t want to lose it. He dove and dove about 30 times trying to find it but the bottom was covered in muck and some type of small mussel which made it very difficult to identify the ring in the murky water. He found me online and asked for help in finding the ring. I checked the tide chart, and saw the tide was rising, so we made arrangements for me to come back in the evening at the next low tide.

When I arrived Kellen was waiting. I donned my wetsuit, and he and I discussed how the ring was lost, where he thought it might be in relation to the swim platform, and at what angle he had entered the water. With that information I walked out to the area and began the search. I got a real good signal and tried to scoop, but had a hard time retrieving the object. The mussels on the bottom were tied together with what seemed to be a spiderweb like algae which made it difficult to get the scoop in and out. I kept working on that signal until I ended up with an aluminum bottle. I continued the search, next finding an old crusted folding knife. I worked a grid shallower and shallower until in about waist deep water I received a nice smooth tone in the headphones. I dug, and in one scoop I had the object, so I knew it was shallow. I shook the scoop out but the mussels and algae had to be removed by hand to search for the metal item. It was almost dark, but when I removed the last bit of mussels, I could see the ring in the bottom of the scoop. I reached in, and slipped it on my finger so as not to lose it, then looked to the shore where Kellen was sitting, and raised my detector and scoop to let him know we had success. When I got to shore I handed the ring to Kellen who identified it as his. His wife had been out riding bikes with friends, and she pulled up as Kellen and I were talking at the curb. She was very happy to see the ring again as well. Really a great feeling to be able to be a help to others, doing what you enjoy!

I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!

Last Friday I woke up early to go surfing, the waves had been real good, and it had been a while since I had been. I looked at my phone and noticed I had an email. I opened it and there was an email from Shane who had lost his wedding ring the day before, which had been sent at 1:00 AM. Well scratch the surfing, I had someone to help. I knew that an email sent that early in the morning meant someone who was having a hard time for sleep, and seeking any way to get the ring back. I answered his email, and he got back with me not long after. He explained that he had been playing Frisbee, and believed the ring came off when he threw the disk. We arranged to meet at the beach, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach, I met Shane, and he took me out to the area where the loss occurred. I could see that he had made grid marks in the area he remembered. We discussed what had happened, and I set out some cones to mark a beginning grid (the area was pretty big). I began to search. I went over the entire coned off area, no ring. I then widened the search to overlap Shane’s own grid marks, no ring. I then went out of the grid area quite a bit thinking that his throwing action might have been a little more severe than he believed it was, no ring. I got with him again, was there anything you might have done to have lost the ring? He told me he had been with the children digging on the slope, sounded likely, searched the slope, no ring. Enter now Shane’s mother, she got with him to explain that she thought he was playing Frisbee even more out of the area we had been searching, so we decided to do a search in the place she recommended. After about 3 passes and 3 and 1/2 hours of total searching, my head phones exploded in sound, I dug, and in the scoop was color, pure color. I put it on my index finger so that when turned to face Shane it would be the first thing he saw. When he did a great big smile came on his face as he exclaimed “I can’t believe it”. Everyone else around came up and wanted to see the ring, which turned out to be 22 karat, or almost pure gold, that had been hand carved in wax by his bride to be, to be poured and finished as her token of her love for him.

Shane and his wife had just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary just 14 days before, so this recovery meant so much more, WOW this was fun. So much joy this day, flowing in the sands of Newport Beach. What a great day, love it!

I was on my back home from finding the earring earlier when I received a call from Jeff. He had been surfing, but had brought the ring he had received from his late grandfather with him. So as not to lose it he put in his tight fitting wet suit. He came out of the water and began to remove the wet suit, when the ring popped out and landed in the sand. He searched for about an hour, but was unable to find it. He then searched the internet, and found me. I was about an hour away, and told him I was on my way. He had time constraints, seeing his friend was getting married tomorrow, and he had to be at the rehearsal later in the evening.

When I got there Jeff led me down to the spot of the loss. He had piled stones to mark it, and it assured me that we would be able to make a quick recovery. I could see that some of the shrubbery had been moved around, and the sand had been piled up in the center of the area. I proceeded to search where Jeff thought the ring may have landed. It wasn’t there, so I worked my way back. I searched the pile of sand where it looked like Jeff had done most of his  own searching, it wasn’t there either. I then started to work back almost behind where he had been standing when I received a good repeatable signal, dug once and missed it, dug a second time and in my scoop was a nice big gold Masonic ring, the ring he found among his grandfather’s belongings after he had passed away. This was so important to Jeff, a precious memory of his late grandfather, who he had just found out was a Mason , which also meant a lot to Jeff. I could tell the pride he had for his grandfather, and this made for a wonderful recovery. Also he still had time to make the rehearsal.

Gold Earring Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Joyously Found and Returned.

I was getting ready to eat my dinner last night when I received a call from Judith who had lost her earring in the sands of the beach. She had been walking along when she adjusted her hat. When she moved her hat, she heard a click, and reached up to notice one of the earrings her grandmother had given her was missing, it must have hooked in her hair which moved with her hat. She desperately searched for it as did her friends and some of the other beach goers to no avail. She then was given my number, and called for help. I was only 20 to 30 minutes away, so I grabbed my equipment, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach Judith and I found each other, and she led me to the area of the loss. I asked my questions trying to narrow down the search area by deductive reasoning. I began my search as I thought it should be done. My first signal was a hair pin. I then, as I moved in closer to where Judith and her friends had been sitting, received a real good sound in the head phones, and dug with my scoop. As I pulled the scoop out Judith told me her friends were sure the loss took place further out, and not where I was searching. While she was explaining this to me, I was looking at her earring in my scoop. That is when I reached in and held up her earring jokingly stating that the ring I found could not be the one we were looking for. Withing 2 minutes I was able to hand her earring back to her. Right away instant joy flooded her, and everybody around got excited about the recovery. When inquiring further about her grandmother and what this gift meant to Judith, I could see that it was a very emotional recovery indeed. What a wonderful thing to be able to produce this type of joy when something you thought was lost for good is found and returned.

I got a call from David this afternoon about a lost wedding ring. Apparently the ring had been taken off so he could go into the water without losing it (a very smart idea). It was wrapped in a towel so as not to lose it. Unfortunately when he went to shower, the towel was opened up, and before anything could be done it was gone. I was only 30 minutes away, and headed right over.

When I got there David was with his friend Chris, and it was then I found out that the ring was Chris’ and not as I assumed, David’s. David had researched, found me on the internet, and made the call for his friend. They showed me the area where they believed the loss happened, which wasn’t very large. It took all but about 5 minutes, and I received a nice tone in the head phones, and in one scoop I had Chris’ ring. I then found out he and his wife had only been married for 8 months, so this loss was very disconcerting for him. It was awesome to see the great sense of relief and joy overwhelm him when I pulled the ring out of my scoop. What a great day!
