Hi Stan! I stumbled across The Ring Finders this evening – I was at Newport Beach today and lost two rings that have great sentimental value. I wondered if you could tell me more about your service and if you are available!
I had taken the rings off because I was taking part in a cooking class for a work event and didn’t want them to get covered in raw chicken. I put them in the pocket of my apron and we ended up going to the beach to take a group photo with our aprons on – after the first photo I cast the apron aside, and the rest is history.
We were on Newport Beach this evening around 6:30 at the end of 49th street.
Thank you so much for any info you can provide,
Jessie

I couldn’t get a reply from her and it bothered me that the beach cleaning machine may get the rings before Jessie could talk to me. It’s less that 3 miles from where I live, so I took the above directions and drove to do a search. My plan was to grid search the first 40 feet from the towel line towards the beach front homes. The Beach King sifting machine normally does two or three passes along the towel line.
After about an hour I had confidence that the rings were not in beach sifting area. I could go home and wait for Jessie to call me with more definite directions. There was probably 150 yards of beach that the rings could be hiding, but they should be safe until I could talk to Jessie.
It was 1:30am as I walked off the beach, then I spotted finger drag marks on the dry sand. Set up a grid search and within 10 minutes I had Jessie’s two rings in my scoop.
Sent Jessie a email telling her I had found her rings and to call me so we could arrange at time and place to meet.. As it turned out I save her a trip from San Diego to Newport because I had another ring search the next day near where she lives. (Another coincident ? ). Jessie did give me some homemade brownies, a nice thank you card and a generous gratuity.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band .. In Sand .. San Clemente Beach, CA.

Saturday 8-8-15

I was checking my emails early Saturday morning when I found that Louis had sent me an email at 11:30pm Friday night. He had lost a ring at the beach and wanted to know if I could help him find it.
I immediately sent him a reply asking him to call me as soon as possible, it was going to be a big day for beach goers. I still had no idea of what beach or when and how it was lost. I waited for his call curious about which beach the lost ring could be. If I could get on the road before 9am., I could get to most the beaches before people started laying out their beach towels and umbrellas.
Just about 8am Louis called giving me the information I needed to get on the road. He had been at San Clemente beach pier surfing with some friends Friday about 7pm. He had wrapped his wedding band in his shirt leaving it on the beach with his towel.. When they came in his friend picked up the shirt and the ring disappeared in the sand. Louis verbally gave me the location so I took off to claim the search area.
Louis was across town on the west side of Los Angeles. He said he would be driving to meet me but it was maybe an hour and a half drive. I arrived San Clemente Pier and started gridding in front of the landmarks that Louis gave me. It wasn’t long before the ring showed up in my sand scoop. I took a picture of it sending it to Louis in a text message.
When Louis showed up he praised me telling me that I may have save his marriage. I know he was joking but I’m sure it makes life better not to have to tell your spouse that your ring is lost forever. It was another good day for all. “TheRingFinders Rule”.
