Lost Diamond Wedding Rings .. Santa Monica Beach .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136












Michelle was visiting from Boston. Saturday she went to Santa Monica Beach near the pier with her mother and sister to take advantage of our weather. After most the afternoon on the beach they went up to the pier for dinner and a few drinks. That was when Michelle realized her two ring wedding set was missing. The last time she saw them was when she set them on the edge of her towel to apply sunscreen.

They walked a couple blocks back to the spot just before sunset but after 2 hours could not find the two white gold diamond rings. 

By the time they got online to locate me, it was after 10pm. Michelle said they would stay to meet me at 11pm. We met on the beach in an area between the first two lifeguard towers south of the pier. The next day was Sunday and there would be other people with detectors on that beach. 

It was dark, cold, and they were tired. Also a few extra adult beverages while waiting may have contributed to the confusion getting me in the exact location. I assured them that I could search the whole area but it would take a couple hours. It had been a long day for them so they decided to go back to their hotel. Basically they had given up hope that the rings could be found.

Later while working a methodical grid search, two other guys with metal detectors were working the same location at midnight. They were wondering through the general area and didn’t know what I knew, but I still worried that they might find the rings first and claim them as a treasure. Soon they wandered off down the beach. Shortly after 12:30am the magic moment came, when I scooped up a metallic signal that turned out to be Michelle’s beautiful diamond engagement ring. Three feet away was her diamond wedding ring. 

I texted a photo of the rings to her and immediately she returned a call with excitement in her voice that is hard to explain. I met with her the next morning to return the rings. Part of doing this, is being able to hand the ring back to the rightful owner and seeing how grateful they are to have something so very sentimental to them back after thinking it was lost forever. 

Ring Lost Off Fourth Floor Balcony .. West Los Angeles, CA. .. Found After Four Months

Georgina lives West Los Angeles. Her apartment is on the fourth floor. Four months ago she walked out on her balcony where she picked up a small hand full of leaves. She tossed the leaves off the balcony and her very special Cartier gold ring came off her finger at that same moment. She could hear the ring hit some cement or the rod iron fence separating the neighbors property. Her fear was that the ring may have gone over the fence.

After arriving Georgina told me she had another person with a metal detector search for the ring with no success. It was only about 15 or 20 feet from the balcony to the neighbor’s property. The landscaping below her apartment had two levels of plants. The top level was only 3 feet wide and was covered with leaves. The lower level was 6 feet wide with thick 3 foot high plants. I had two detectors with small coils but it was impossible to use them in the lower planter.

I had to bring out the hand held pinpointer to probe into the thick vegetation. Meantime I could see Georgina was starting to lose confidence that the ring could be found with such a small detector. She could hear the pinpointer sound every time it located a piece of metallic trash. After about 20 minutes of checking every metal signal. I reached down, with plants over my head, to remove what I thought was a piece of tinfoil.  It turned out to be Georgina’s very special ring. It had been waiting there to be found for more than four months.

Georgina was so happy that her ring had been found that she could barely speak. This ring was a gift from her husband many years ago, when she had received a promotion at her job. We went back into the lobby of the apartments where I received hugs from several of the workers and I was able to visit and tell ring recovery stories. Every search is a challenge and an adventure. This is all possible because of all the new technology, especially the internet and TheRingFinders.com.

Diamond Ring Lost While Gardening .. Newport Beach, CA.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136










Irene had been gardening Wednesday morning when she noticed her diamond wedding ring missing from her finger. The last she remembered seeing it was the day before, so it could have also been lost in the backyard where she had done another cleanup project.
Irene had worn this ring for over 30 years, a gift from her husband, who had recently passed away. She was very distraught, so she called her daughter, Karen to help her. They spent several hours checking the house and everyplace that it could be visible by eye. Because Irene had spent so much time in the gardens they both felt it had to be in the freshly tilled soil.
Karen went to the internet to explore chances of getting a metal detector expert. She found TheRingFinders.com and my contact information. I was able to meet them within a hour.
We spent a few minutes discussing the what actions might have caused the loss of the ring and explaining how the metal detector works. Then we walked to all the places Irene had been outside sense yesterday, gardens in front, along the side of the house and a lawn in the backyard. I now could get my detector and set up it up for the search.
As we walked back along the side of the house to get my detector, Irene spotted her ring in plain site on the side walk. All three of us walked over it at least once. They thought that it may have been hiding behind a box of leaves that she had moved off the sidewalk.
It doesn’t matter how we found the ring. What’s most important is that the ring is back where it belongs.
Another thing to remember is, that it’s not always about using the metal detector. Many searches will just prove that the lost article is not in that location. When a ring can’t be found with my detector. I always tell the people to check their washing machine and clothes dryer, pockets, purses, etc.
