Wedding Ring Set Tossed in Anger… Adelanto, CA. … Found Four Days Later

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I’ve learned that this happens more often than most people realize. Monique had thrown her diamond wedding set in a passion filled moment. It was tossed in in the front yard that is landscaped with large white /gray gravel. Adelanto is located in the high desert of Southern California where they landscape with gravel to conserve water. I drove 90 miles from my base in Newport Beach the day we discussed the details of the loss.

Monique purchased a used metal detector and they spent four days trying to find the white gold wedding ring set. The rings were soldered together which makes a better target to find with a metal detector. They may have been able to find the rings if they had experience using a metal detector. All metal detectors are not equal and it does take time to learn how to use one. I’m sure the four days of searching for the ring set were frustrating.

Monigue’s brother was waiting for me when arrived to show me the location. I could see many places where they had moved gravel trying to retrieve metallic signals. I only received two signals that could have been gold. The white gold ring set blended into the white/ gray gravel and were almost invisible when I retrieved them. After waiting for Monique to return from doing her errands, I was able to personally give her precious rings.

I want to thank Monigue for being honest. Also, for allowing me to write the real story. I’ve been on many calls where the person was embarrassed to tell me how they lost their rings. There have also been on calls where they pretended to throw the ring. Then there have been calls where the ring was picked up by the other person involved in the argument and held in retaliation. We can’t find them all. We do have the best advantage to find metallic keepsakes because we have the best metal detectors, know how to use them and experience with all types of searches.

Lost Watch and Wallet at Hermosa Beach in the Sand.. Wallet Found

Dan had called me asking for help finding his expensive watch that was lost on the beach, two nights ago. He  mentioned that there was also a wallet lost at the same time. 

It’s the beginning of summer and the beach crew uses tractors to rake the beach daily. Dan lives nearby and believed that the area of the loss was not in a location that was raked by the beach cleaning crews.

Our hopes were that the watch was under the dry sand. The wallet may have been exposed and picked up by a person, as the beach has been very crowded. Dan sent me a screenshot photo of the area. After searching the location late that afternoon, I couldn’t find the watch. 

I did find a wallet under the sand. My detector picked up a signal because it had a metallic electronic key inside.  The only problem was the driver license and credit cards belonged to a person named Ron. Luckily there was a card inside the wallet with his phone number. After contacting him I was informed he was Dan’s friend and that this was the wallet lost the same time the watch was lost. 

We now knew we were in the right location where the watch may be hiding under the sand. After several attempts cross gridding the location with my metal detector, the watch could not be found. The losses occurred in the dark. It was probably not under the sand and someone may have picked it up the next morning? 

I know that the watch was no longer in the area searched, but I had to be satisfied that I was able to return the wallet to Ron. I can’t believe the wallet was still on this beach after three days. Beach rakes. many people on the beach and other people using metal detectors on the beach, are reasons to contact a member of TheRingFinders.com as soon as possible.

Lost Ring Found – Troy Community Center

from Wixom (Michigan, United States)
Contact: 1-248-622-7768

Narenda was at cricket practice when he noticed he lost his ring.  As they searched in declining evening light his coach Raj  visited my Ringfinder Directory listing and called me  for help.  I was home, but an hour away, so when I arrived  at the Troy Community Center it was just getting dark.  We searched without success until well after dark.

Naren explained the ring was a very dear gift from his mother, it was clear he was not ready to give up the search.  I knew the ring was somewhere on the field, and thanks to Coach Raj, I had a good Idea where to look.

I returned the following day in very poor weather for another unsuccessful hunt.  On my third attempt I set the marker flags for my search over a much larger area than the markers Coach Raj had made indicating Narenda’s position during the cricket drill.  Sure enough the ring turned up just outside the area of the original search.

When I recovered the ring I was dismayed to find it had been bent.  Knowing I had to beat the lawn mowers I started early hoping to prevent the possibility of damage.  Indeed there had been no mowing due to the rain.  The ring looked reparable and I told Coach Raj of the damage when I called him with the news of the find.

Narenda came that evening eager to pick up the ring.  I asked him again to describe his ring, a small gold ring with white stones in a square pattern.  He laughed when I told him it had been damaged, he admitted to denting the band himself and pantomimed the catch he made when he dented it. His smile told the story when he slipped the ring back on his finger.

The first day of Tiffany’s vacation started off by losing her Iphone in the sand at Santa Monica Beach. Tiffany is from Louisiana and was visiting her mother in Southern California. This is not a good start to a vacation. 

Tiffany’s mother was able to find TheRingFinders website, using her cellphone. She called me and I asked her if they could stay at the location till I got there. Our best chance to find a cellphone is the first few hours. They are often picked up by other people or the beach cleaning machines get them the next morning.

We met on the beach just before sunset. Tiffany and her mother showed me an area approximately 50’x 50’ square. After searching that location with no success, I found the phone 20 ft. outside the original search area. 

Tiffany was truly grateful to have her phone. I was also surprised when her young son told me, thank you for finding my mother’s phone.

Canandaigua NY, Wedding band lost in yard, FOUND

from Syracuse (New York, United States)
Contact: 1-315-652-6996

Wednesday June 12th.  I received a call from a James (last name withheld) who lives in Canandaigua NY.  Yesterday James was doing some yard work and he walked over the edge of his grass to throw some twigs etc. into the woods.  When he threw the twigs his wedding band of 55 years came flying off and into the high grass along the edge of his yard.  He actually saw the ring as it flew into the high grass.  James quickly realized that he had to cut down the high grass if he was to have a chance of finding his ring.  He went back to his garage and the only thing that he had to cut the grass was a small hand held grass sheers.  So he went back with those small grass sheers and started cutting grass and looking for his wedding band.

 

James worked somewhere around 2 hours cutting, clearing and searching an area that was about 10 x 10 that he was sure his ring was because he had watched the ring fly off his hand and land in this general area.  It was getting dark so he called it a day and went into the house to tell his wife the bad news.  At this time both James and his wife was counting the ring as being lost and they would have to bear the expense of purchasing a replacement ring.

 

All night long James was thinking about his lost ring so in the morning before his wife arose, James searched his phone using the following phrase. “ How do I find someone who would search for my LOST RING”.  Now Goggle uses logarithms in their searching and those two works are the key.  James was pleasantly surprised when my name popped up along with my phone number.  He called me and we set up a time for me to search for his lost ring.

 

I arrived and I started asking all the questions that I need to better locate his ring.  I also asked permission to film him and the search, but James was not happy about that, so I was not able to get any video of the search.  I think James was just a little embarrassed that he had lost his ring.

 

James showed me that area and the place where he had hand cut the tall grass.  It was down a slope, into the woods.  There was tall grass between the edge of his lawn and the area that he had cut then the “cleared area” and then into the woods. From where he had cleared the grass and also into the woods the forest floor was a tangle of sticks, grass clumps etc.  A perfect place for the ring to hide.

 

I fired up my detector and started working the tall grass on the side hill that he had not searched between the edge of the lawn and the cleared area.  Although I did get two “hits” in this area, the tones on my machine told me that these were most likely not his ring.  Now I searched his cleared out area but did not get a hit, so I stated working deeper into the woods on a straight line that he had saw his ring flying when it came off.  Just off his cleared area but into the woods deeper, I got a nice solid low tone that most times are gold rings.  I used my pin pointer and moved it around and down into the sticks etc. that are on most forest floors.  Yes it was his ring, but his ring was down into all those sticks and leaves 3 to 4 inches.  I doubt that if James had worked this area he would have found his ring as it had already worked it’s way though all the “flotsam” on the ground right down to the soil.  Total search time – less them 10 minutes.

 

James was happy, his wife was happy, and yes I was happy.

 

I wish all searches were this easy

Lost Ring Lanikai Beach Oahu: Found!

from Honolulu (Hawaii, United States)
Contact: 1-808-282-6978

It began early Sunday morning with a referral phone call from another of the Ring Finders here on Oahu.  He had received multiple calls for lost items and could not possibly make them all in the same day.  He asked if I would take the call for a lost ring at Lanikai Beach on the east side of Oahu.  I was more than happy to and immediately called the client, Stewart, for the details to recover his lost wedding band.  Stewart explained that he had been tossing a football back and forth with his son on the shoreline.  Something felt wrong and he looked down at his left hand and immediately noticed that his wedding band was missing.  Yikes!  As soon as he had the opportunity to he did a bit of research and looked up TheRingFinders.com and gave us a call. Not knowing exactly where the ring went missing he knew about where within 30 yards or so.

I met Stewart on the beach about noon in the general area where he and his family had been relaxing and playing the day before.  Stewart placed me in the center of the general area of where he thought he had lost the ring ranging from knee deep water to the damp sand.  Being forever the gambler I asked him if he wanted me to start to the right or to begin my search.  Stewart said lets go left, so I faced left, turned on the metal detector and tuned it for the  sand conditions and started swing the coil.  Almost immediately I hear a solid BEEP! looking as the screen it says a solid target about 3 inches deep in the sand.  So I inserted the scoop gently into the wet sand and pulled it out.  Looking in the scoop I saw a gold colored circle and immediately asked: “Is this your ring?”  Stewart looked in the scoop smiled and said “You Found It!”.  He immediately took the ring and put it back in its rightful place on his left hand.  Any further visit to the beach the ring will be on a leash.  Although the search was a short one it was great that the missing ring was found and back where it belongs.  Aloha Stewart!

Denise called, she had been at the beach, when brushing the sand off of her clothes, her ring flew off into the sand and was gone. This was her grandmother’s ring, and she cherished it. She had not left the area, and it had happened just a little bit earlier, so I knew the possibilities of a recovery were very good. I let her know that I was on my way, and would let her know when I arrived.

When I got to where Denise was she showed me where she had been standing, and what she was doing when the ring flew off, so I began my search. I searched all of the area she had gone over, and the ring was not there, so I expanded the area. I found the ring about 10 feet from the original area, sitting on top of the sand. Denise was very grateful, and figured she would not even have looked there had I not come along. What a nice end to a day!

I received a call from Jane today about a lost ring. She had been in her backyard throwing a ball to her dog, when making a throw her late husband’s ring that she wore daily, flew from her finger, and was gone. I asked a few questions, and we arranged to meet later in the afternoon to do the search.

When I got to Jane’s house, she took me to the backyard, and we talked about the loss. I asked her to reenact the throw, and then began a search in the direction of where the ball had flown. I went over the grass, checked all the flower pots, checked and shook all the bushes, under the bushes, and out to the fence; no ring. I then went over the yard once more to insure I had covered all areas, no ring. I asked if she had a ladder, and checked up on the garage roof, no ring. Jane had resolved to find the ring whenever it showed up, but I really wanted to know why we were not able to find it, so we went back behind where she had been standing, and looked on her gravel patio. I told her a story about how rings are not usually where you think they are, so we began to look around the patio. I just got finished saying that if it was here, that it would be in plain sight. I turned right looked down on the gravel, and there it was. I let out a whoop letting her know I had found it. It had come off of her left hand, and flown  15 behind and to her right about another 10 feet; amazing! Jane was so happy! This ring is something she wears to keep her husbands memory close to her all the time.

Jane sent the following testimonial:

My late husbands ring found today after an extensive search by Steve. Can’t thank you enough for all your help. Just when we were ready to give up the search, there it was hiding in plane site👏 I can’t tell you how happy & relieved I am.
You made my day & am truly grateful

Eric called today about his wedding band he had lost in his backyard over the Memorial weekend, during a grilling session. He went to wipe his hands off in the grass, when while swiping them his ring went flying. He and his family searched for a couple of hours without any luck. After a few questions, I agreed to do the search. He was going to be at work, so we arranged to have me meet with his wife Anna at the house later in the day.

When I arrived, Anna met me at the backyard gate, and took me back to the site of the loss. She showed me approximately what happened. From what it looked like, the ring should not have gone far, but having done these searches over the years, I have found that these rings sometimes go in the least expected of places. I searched the area where I expected the ring would have gone first, no luck. I then began a search over all the rest of the yard, and on the last pass, all the way on the other side of the yard, further back than it should have been, I found Eric’s ring. Rings are kind of like weird people; they just do their own thing. It was a pure pleasure to be able to hand Anna her husband’s ring, that they thought was lost for good. Truly a great day!

Eric sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

You are a great guy with a great calling in life! My lost ring in my backyard was probably a run-of-the-mill search and find for you, but I had been wearing it for over 20 years. I had been doing yard work the previous day and within minutes of it falling off my finger (still don’t know how it happened), I realized my finger was bare. But me finding you was a bigger part of the story. We looked for it all evening until it got too dark. The next day, I had to go to work. I told my co-workers that I had lost my ring the previous day, and the general consensus was that I would need to buy a replacement. I’m surrounded by co-workers wearing replacements. A couple of them had heard of your website. So I gave it a try. I think I called you around 11:00 in the morning, let you know my wife would be home by 3:30, and you were there by 4:00. I shared your emails and txts with my work mates so they were all along for the ride. – Ring found within a few minutes in a part of the yard that I didn’t think it would be in. “It’s never where you think it is” I believe you told my wife. Anyhow, I had to run around the office saying “Steve found it!” It was a nice touch to a stressful day.

Thanks again and best wishes in all your future searches!
