Diamond Wedding Band Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Recovered and Joyously Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)


I got a call from Rose this afternoon about a ring she lost in the sand at the beach. She had taken her rings off to apply sunscreen, and not remembering they were on her shirt, she kind of flipped it over head to place it behind her, and the rings (5 in all) went flying. A couple of them landed on her, but 3 were gone. She searched, and was able to find 2 more, but the diamond band was elusive. I told her that I would leave immediately.

When I arrived parking was a bear, but I finally got to her location, and she showed me what had happened. I moved everything out of the way to search, and began. I was getting feedback from her sand chair, so I moved it out of the way, and was looking down right at the ring. I reached down and handed it to her. She was very surprised, because she had already looked in the same place, so maybe the movement of the chair when she replaced it, and when I moved it out of the way shifted the sand in such a way that it was exposed again. Needless to say Rose was very happy to have it back, and had that load of the loss removed. Great day.

Venice Beach Resident Lost Ring in Sand .. Found by TheRingFinder Member

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Even after many years living on the beach, you can not be too careful with your valuables. The sand can hide your dropped jewelry in seconds.

Jeff and Fran live on the beachfront in the Santa Monica / Venice Beach area. They spend much of their time on the beach at the towel line nearest to the water. Today Fran asked Her husband, Jeff to give his gold wedding ring for her to put in her bag for safe keeping.
After a few hours Fran notice the ring was missing from her bag. They had not moved so they were sure the ring was in the sand. Two hours later their attempts to find the ring was useless. Fran went to the nearest lifeguard tower to ask for suggestions. The lifeguard recommended they Google search TheRingFinders.com also suggesting that they call me.
They called me and I asked them to stay on the spot or Mark where they where. The traffic is always unpredictable but I was still able to meet them before they had to leave. That made it an easy search. With a few swings of my detector I had a solid signal which turned out to be Jeff’s ring. They were very grateful and told me this was 37 years of being married and living here in Santa Monica/Venice Beach. It was a pleasure to meet them and help them find their ring.

Ring recovered Friday 10-9-15 using a Minelab CTX3030 metal detector.

Ring Lost in Sand .. Venice Beach, CA. .. Found

Monday .. 6-22-15

Early Monday morning Kayley met with some friends for about an hour on the beach. She set her ring on her sandals when they walked to the water. On the way back to her house she realized her ring must have fallen into the sand. Returning to the place she was sitting, she could not find the ring.
Kayley called me and I was able to meet her about 12 noon. When I walked out on the beach I could see that the beach rake had passed over the area where she said she was sitting. My expectations for a easy recovery were not very positive until she told me that the rake machine had already passed before sitting on the beach.
I set up a grid search. After about a half hour with no success I started to cross grid the location. Kayley was sitting on the sand watching with hope that the next time I dug a target it would be her ring.
Then a young guy, that was part of a surfing school, walked up to Kayley. He wanted to know what we were looking for? She told him about her lost ring and to her surprise he had found it. He returned it to her. I believe that because we set up the search area, we attracted the attention of people around us. The most important thing was that Kayley’s ring was back on he finger where it belongs. She was also able to get to a 2pm yoga class that she was teaching. I call that “Good timing Luck”
