*** Ronald lost his IPhone in the sand at Victoria Beach one of the small coves that is in the city of Laguna Beach, CA. He wasn’t sure where the phone was lost until he got home where he could set up his find my phone app on his computer. 

He found my contact information on a google search for a metal detector. When Ronald talked to me he said the app was showing the phone at Victoria Beach near the volleyball courts. It still had 5% battery left so it had not been picked up. 

The call came to me about 10:30am that morning. I left immediately and was at the location 10 miles away shortly after the call. The grid search area was fairly clear as not too many beach goers on the sand. In less than a half hour I was able to locate Ronald’s iPhone. 

He picked it up later that afternoon and was totally elated, thanking me several times. He was also  happy that we were able to set this up without him having to drive to the location. It’s always better to have a person present to help zero in on the location, but in this case he couldn’t be there.

*** Grae was teaching his son to boggie board in the surf at a SoCal Beach. After walking out of the surf he noticed his palladium wedding ring was no longer on his finger. He was sure it was on his finger before entering the ocean. 

He texted me four days after the loss because he had not known this service existed. We were later able to discuss some of the details of his loss on a phone call. His first question was how does this work? This is the most common question. 

I explained that, if the ring was lost at a higher tide, we have a chance to recover the ring at the lower tides. All dependent on how much sand movement occurs over the next few days. I do need a general idea of where on the beach he was located. 

Grae gave me landmarks approximately 100 yards apart. The next morning I was able to get to the beach at a 4am low tide. Two hours of searching were not successful as the surf was difficult to keep a straight grid line. The next morning in the darkness it was a much calmer surf. I got a good signal that turned out to be a palladium wedding band. This had to be the one I was looking for. Palladium rings are not commonly found on the beach.

I know that people stress about the loss of sentimental keepsakes, so I try to keep them updated on the search and recovery as soon as possible. I don’t like to text the good news of a recovery. It’s much more rewarding to hear the voice on the other end of the phone. Good memories that I wish I could share with others. 

He was able to get my help using the internet, texts and a short phone call. We met later that afternoon to return his ring that had been in the ocean for more than five days.

…. Maddy had been laying out on the beach at Newport Beach, CA. working in her summer tan. She took off her white gold pearl promise ring setting it on her towel while applying lotion. When she got ready to leave, she pick up the towel and walked about fifty feet before realizing the ring had fallen in the sand. 

She called her friend to help her search the sand. They spent more than three hours methodically searching the sand with the help of several other people who were just passing by. Finally someone told her about my services. She got my contact information with a quick online search.

I met her on the beach which is only a few miles from where I live. We walked over to the 40ft.x 40ft. loss site. I chose to begin the grid search in the center. After beginning the third grid line I got a perfect signal. One quick shallow scoop revealed Maddy’s ring.

She was so grateful and happy to have this special ring back, saying I can’t believe we found it. She also was sorry that she had not called me sooner. She didn’t like how frustrating it was to hand search the sand for so many hours, but she commented she did get a little more tan time. 

Maddy’s smile tells the whole story. This is what keeps me doing what I do..

*** Donnie called me while he was driving to a local sporting goods store to buy a metal detector. His son Cameron had lost his cell phone at Newport Beach the night before. The phone was important because it had a special photo of Cameron’s mother who had past away recently. The photo was inserted into a custom phone case and there were no duplicates.

I was just finishing a search less than a mile away from the location he told me the phone was lost. It was an Iphone that was still transmitting its location on the lost my phone app. I told him,  I could find the phone and could meet him within twenty minutes. 

I finished up what I was doing and we both drove up to the site at the same time. We walked out on the beach and the phone showed up soon after I turned on my detector swinging for about twenty feet. They had spent almost two hours trying to find the Iphone by hand searching before calling for help. I saved Donnie the cost of buying a detector and probably a lot of frustration. The phone was actually in wet saltwater sand that most inexpensive hobby detectors can not handle. It was a pleasure to be available to help them.. They were so thankful, and I could tell this photo meant the world to the both of them.

Tiffany & Co. Gold La Pousette Stud Earring Back Lost in Backyard.. Tarzana, CA. .. Recovered

*** Laura lost her Tiffany & Co. 18k Gold  La Pousette earring back in the grass. The loss occurred when she decided to remove her diamond stud earrings so her new playful Labrador puppy wouldn’t accidentally pull the earring loose. She knew exactly where the loss happened but she could not visually see the small backing.

I got a call from her because she believed her only chance to find it would be a metal detector. I had a short discussion with her, explaining the complications of finding small gold items with hobby metal detectors. We agreed that I could meet her at her home that afternoon with my detectors that are set up for small gold items. We still wouldn’t know what the search conditions would be like till I arrived at the location. She would have a matching piece of the gold backing, so I could test my equipment for a signal in the soil conditions of her backyard.

Two of my detectors and two different pinpointers had decent signals. I did get a weak signal in the grass with both detectors, but couldn’t get either pinpointers to give me a signal. The small backing must have been on edge or possibly there was something making the signal from the pinpointer? After some frustration, I decided to carefully scratch through the grass catching a small glimmer of the white gold. Boom! Successful recovery.

I’ve never heard of a La Pousette earring backing so after I returned home researched them on line. They are the the most secure backings for expensive diamond stud earrings. As I understand, some of the most expensive are sold as set ( post and backing). Over the past years of finding jewelry for people, I’m learning a lot about jewelry.

I was looking forward to helping Laura find this small piece of gold. Also, knowing it was going to be a challenge. Laura was appreciative to see how difficult the search was. She was glad that she didn’t buy or rent a metal detector for a Do It Yourself Search.

*** Lianne called me asking for help finding her ring that she had lost last night at Santa Monica Beach, CA. Like most of my calls, she wanted to know how my service works. Every search is different, so I need a few minutes on the phone to discuss basic information. There are situations where the person can not meet me at the location. With good information I can do a search without the person meeting me at the location. I have a basic fee to help with my travel expenses. We are usually able to take care of that by electronic money transfers after I do the search.

Lianne could not leave work but she gave me very good idea of how the ring was lost and she was within 30 feet from the north side of a lifeguard tower. She did feel the ring come off her finger. (a bonus clue, many times people don’t have an idea when the loss occurred ). I agreed to drive to the location at Santa Monica Beach.. She said, if I had anymore questions she could take phone calls anytime. We were also able to do FaceTime calls on our iPhones. That did  help because when I arrived at the parking lot there was a little confusion about the lifeguard tower number. We straightened out that problem using a FaceTime phone call.

After clarifying the lifeguard tower number I was able to recovery Lianne’s ring after after a short grid search. Lifeguard towers in Southern California are usually not moved except in the winter.. I understand that on the east coast of our country they move lifeguard towers where they have flat beaches with lone tide movement. 

After notifying Lianne, I called her , offering to deliver her ring if she was available. It worked out fine because her work place was just a few blocks my drive home. Actually we met at lunch time. She was very surprised that we had accomplished the search, recovery and return using our cellphones and the mapping apps. The RingFinders directory service works because of the internet and all the new technology we have today. I love what I do !

… Karin and Cory were enjoying their vacation in Newport Beach, CA., their vacation was disrupted, when Karin lost her three ring wedding set. The three rings were soldiered together so all were thought to be lost forever. She didn’t realize the rings were missing until they returned to their hotel. Cory got into action by checking the car and Karin checked all the belongings they had taken to the beach. The only place the ring could be was at the beach. Cory knew it would be impossible to search the dry sand without some sort of sifter or maybe a metal detector.

Before attempting a search they went online to inquire about metal detectors. They happened onto TheRingFinder website, where they got my phone number. Cory talked to me and we met at the main Newport Beach near the pier in the dark. This is the most popular daytime beach area and very well maintained. In the summer season the beach king sand sifter is used here almost everyday. Also a very heavily detected beach in the summertime, day and night.

It’s nice to hear someone say they felt the ring come off and they are standing in the location, but this was not the case.  When I get those type calls I know the odds are good that we can recover the ring. Because they had returned to the hotel before knowing the ring was missing, I could assure them that I could eliminate the area , if they could get me close. If the ring was there,  my equipment can locate it. We met at the location as the tide was beginning to cover the dry sand. I tried to keep my grid lines in front of the incoming tide. After about a half hour I got a solid signal and a quick dig with my Xtreme sand scoop. I had the whole wedding ring set in the bottom of my scoop. White Gold Engagement Ring, Wedding Ring and anniversary rings all very sentimental impossible to replace originals. As we were running out of places to search we were all losing hope. Then the magic signal “Boom” successful recovery and tears of joy for Karin. Cory had that special, “I don’t believe it look”  It never gets old doing this service for people, I love it!1

George called me early in the morning asking for help to find his white gold wedding ring. He was sure it was lost while he was with his family at Lighthouse Bay Beach in Newport Beach, CA. His only concern was he had walked several different places while at the beach. He had not been in the water.

Rings slip off fingers at the beach many times because some types of sand have powder like texture that help make the fingers slippery. After asking George if he had been doing any activity that would have caused the ring to slip off, he said he had not. He did know the ring was missing before leaving the beach. 

George said he could meet me at the location but it would take him about an hour to drive from his home in Corona, CA. I could be there much sooner so he gave me a good idea of where they had been sitting on the beach. This would be where I could start the process of eliminating potential areas that he could have lost the ring.

I was at the location shortly after our phone conversation. My first grid line was an attempt to see if I could visually recognize where George had searched the sand the night before. Many times it’s easy to see where people have dragged the fingers through the sand attempting to find a lost item. This time I couldn’t see anything indication of a search site. After about a 25 yard straight line grid, I reversed my direction. Then half way back to my starting point I got a nice signal. ” Boom”, digging the target revealed a white gold wedding band in the scoop.

I returned to my car to finish drinking my morning coffee while waiting for George to show up. When  we met he introduced himself and I ask him if he was the ” ARTISTE”.. he was immediately surprised because this was the inscription inside the ring. He knew I had found the ring. 

After talking to him he told me, he was afraid the the ring could have been in many places that he had been that day. It was another great day on the beach helping George find his wedding ring.

***  I received a call from Natalie in Long Beach, CA. She had lost her wedding ring in the backyard while pulling weeds. She had put the gold w/ diamonds ring in her back pocket. When she returned to the house the ring was not in her pocket. 

I was able to meet her a few hours later. Natalie showed me the small backyard explaining that she had also had her cellphone in the same pocket as her wedding ring. Evidently the ring came out of her pocket when the she used the cellphone. This is not the first time I’ve heard this same story. It happens quite often because these cellphones have a lip that can drag loose items out of a pocket.

I started by checking the pile of weeds that had been pulled. Then I began the grid search of the 40’x 40’ lawn. It is an older piece of property with a lot of pieces of metal trash in the lawn. I usually search in all metal mode setting with my metal detector. This being a small yard I discriminated out the ferrous metals. 

Halfway through the yard I had two similar signals very close to each other. One was a pull tab and the other was Natalie’s beautiful gold diamond wedding ring. It was another successful ring recovery. Natalie was very happy and relieved that she didn’t have to lose sleep worrying about if she could find her ring.

*** Kristal had been married less than a month before losing her white gold diamond wedding ring. She lives in an apartment complex with a nice work out gymnasium near the pool. She walked the half block from her apartment to do a routine exercise session. She had not left her new wedding at her residence, so she wrapped it in her face mask putting in a hand bag. Her idea was protect it from being scratched.

After exercising she walked back to the apartment along a sidewalk. She had been holding the face mask in her hand but didn’t put it on. When she got back home the ring was missing.

One week of checking the grass along the sidewalk, reporting the loss to management, the gardeners, community online forum and posting flyers the ring was still missing.

Kristal called me saying that I was her last hope. We met and she walked me through where she had been when the ring disappeared. The first thing I told her was we are beginning the search now as we walk the path she took that evening. We got to a street crossing and she didn’t want to go any further. I asked that she show me the entire route to make sure I can clear the grassy hiding places. I had not set up to use my metal detector.

As we walked, we visually spotted the white gold diamond wedding ring on the surface of the grass. It had survived the lawnmower and many people that could have easily spotted it. Kristal was more than elated, a very happy and amazed young bride. She told me that she’d  never forget this moment.

This has happened several times where we spot the missing item on the initial walk through. What made this different was that it was lying there for over a week and she said, she had probably walked passed it 20 times. Also, it was a very public area with lots of foot traffic. Moral to the story, “Don’t give up just before the miracle happens
