*** Nick was skimboarding in a cove at Laguna Beach, CA. when his gold wedding band came off his finger and disappeared into the surf. Skimboarding is a board sport performed on the steep wet sandy slope in shallow surf as the wave recedes. This would give us a good chance to find the ring at the next low tide.

Nick had questioned me about his chances to find the ring if he took a rented metal detector to search for it himself. He felt it couldn’t be that difficult to use a metal detector. I explained to him that rental metal detectors are usually effective in salt water sand. Also, it is not practical to learn how to operate a metal detector while trying to find something as important as his wedding ring.

I made arrangements with Nick and his wife Ami to meet me at the location. I had a simple pulse induction metal detector that I could let him use while the both of us searched the 12:30am low tide. I even had an extra sand scoop that is important if you are trying to retrieve a target.

After giving Nick and Ami a quick lesson, we took off on our separate grid searches. I could see them struggle when they had to dig the few targets they did find. Nick did learn that the metal detector was not so easy learn. After about 40 minutes  my detector got a great signal outside the zone that Nick believed his loss had  happened. 

When I scooped the ring they were 100 feet from me. Walking back to the couple , I asked Nick if he thought the ring could be further out. Then I held the scoop with his ring in it for him to see. He and Ami were amazed and gave me the “Oh My God “ salute. They are a beautiful couple. It was a pleasure to help them out.

*** Adam is a lifetime resident of Newport Beach, CA. He was playing football with friends on the beach when his platinum wedding ring slipped off his finger into the dry sand. He knew from past experiences that it was his chance to find it was almost impossible, so he didn’t waste time searching.

Adam got on the internet and found my information on TheRingFinders directory. I met him on the beach soon after he called. We were lucky that he had marked off the spot where the ring came off his finger. Searching a football field area can be challenging. A short grid search turned up Adam’s platinum wedding ring in the scoop. Adam had to meet a friend so he was able to make it to his appointment without a delay. 

Another successful recovery because he called in a timely manner and he had the general area marked out.

Unexpected Wave Washes Cellphone into the Sand at Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, CA.

**** I received a call, asking for help to find a cellphone that was lost in the sand at Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point,CA. Saagar and his wife had driven from Los Angeles to enjoy the day day at the beach. All Los Angeles beaches were closed because of the pandemic.

The surf was very violent that day and they had set up their blanket and chairs back away from the wet sand. After a couple hours they were surprised by a rouge wave that came up to wash all their belongings all over the area. His cellphone phone couldn’t be found. It definitely had to be buried in the sand. 

This happened in the late evening, making it more difficult to search. The loss happened way up the high side of the beach, so the phone didn’t get pulled into the ocean. They returned the next morning to have a frustrating two hours of searching by dragging their fingers through the sand.

I was called and after having to park more than a mile away, I was able to walk to their location on the beach.  It didn’t take much time  to find the phone just outside the area they marked out for me. It was amazing how deep the phone had sunk into the fine soft sand. (Probably 4 to 5 inches deep)

It’s always interesting to see the surprised reaction of the people when they realize how close they were to finding their lost item. The important thing is the all important cellphone was found and still working.

Chloe had lost one of two rings her mother had passed down to her. It was one of two matching gold with diamond rings that her father gave to her mother. One was her mother’s  wedding ring and the other was given to her mother the day Chloe was born.

Chloe had been sitting in the sand at Belmont Shores on the bayside with her friends. It was dark when she flicked her hand and one of the rings went flying into the sand. Everyone tried to find it with no success. She returned to her house just a block away, where She began to search the internet for ideas to help her find the ring. She was able to get my contact information but was afraid to call so late at night. After not sleeping well , worrying that the heirloom ring was lost forever. Chloe called me at 5:30am apologizing for the early call. I assured her it is never a problem and it is important to call ASAP.

She was going to try to rest for a bit and said she could meet me at 8:30am .. I was at the location an hour early just to make sure I claimed the area as a search location. After Chloe showed up she gave me a smaller plot of sand to search. Her precious hierloom gold and diamond ring was in my scoop within  a few minutes. Then her face lit up with a big smile and you could see the relief from all the worrying she had gone through for the past 12 hours.

Santa Monica, California .. Lost White Gold Wedding Ring in the Sand .. Found and Returned to Owner

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)








Stan the Metal Detector Man is available to help you now .. call ASAP ..  949-500-2136

****Samantha and her husband took advantage of Santa Monica beaches being open after several months of being closed. They live close enough to walk to the beach. Sometime during their stay he lost his white gold wedding band.

After a frustrating search without finding the ring they returned home. Samantha did not give up.. She contacted me after finding my contact information on the internet. Hearing her story, I was convinced we had a very good chance to find the ring. Dry sand, lost four hours ago, and they knew the ring was missing before leaving the beach, perfect conditions to find a ring with a metal detector. 

****Samantha’s husband had given up and thought she was wasting her time. She walked back to the beach to meet me as most the people were finishing their stay at the beach.

I set up my detector as she was beginning to show me the general area they had been sitting that morning. There was a lady and her family sitting on part of the location we were to search. As I started my grid the lady on the beach blanket asked Samantha, “ What are you looking for?” Samantha told her and to her surprise the lady held up the white gold wedding band. Saying she had found it earlier while randomly running her fingers through the sand. 

Samantha was a very grateful lady. We discussed how lucky we were to come back to the scene of the loss before everyone left the beach. I’m sure if we put off searching for the ring ASAP. The person that found the ring would have been on the road  with no way possible to find the owner of the ring.

I like being the person that finds the lost item but the important thing is that the ring was found. This has happened several times before. It’s part of being a Ring Finder.

Lost Hierloom Gold Ring Found Five Months Later.. Cerritos, CA.

**** I had been called to double check a parking lot and planters where an earring had been lost the week before.. The odds were not favorable because it was a public area with not many places to hide an earring. At the last minute Daniel called to say he could not meet me at the location. Too much time had passed already so I decided to give it a try anyway.

While I was standing in the parking lot with a pinpointer in my hand, I was approached by a security guard named Emannuel. He asked me what I was doing. After explaining that I was searching for a lost earring. He asked me if I could find a gold ring. He said it was very special to him as it was gifted to him by his late father who had worn it for many years. I could see that Emannuel was beginning to tear up just describing how much it meant to him. 

He was a little reluctant to tell me the location until I told him I was a member of TheRingFinders. I thought maybe it may have been lost at another location. It was a surprise to find out that the ring had come off his finger just the other side of the building where we were standing.  Just before Christmas, about five months ago Emannuel had been brushing rain water off the seat of his motorcycle when his gold ring flew off his finger. There were several thick bushes near the location and he had torn through them several times in an effort to find the ring. There was even an area where the rain water drained off into a culvert. 

Emannuel was still working, so I began a general search with my detector. The shrubbery was very thick and I went right away to my Garrett AT pinpointer. Just probing into the base of the plants. After several pieces of tinfoil and a pull tab. I reached into examine signal from the pinpointer and my finger slipped into a ring. BINGO!! That special ring that he had described to me. Five months laying there in the thick shrubs just yards away from where Emannuel worked everyday. It must have been frustrating for him know something a special as his dad’s ring was possibly lost forever.

Needless to say the smile and the gratitude expressed by him was priceless. The original list earring was never recovered. In some situations timing is important. If Emannuel had known about theringfinders he may have saved five months of frustration. The important thing is his ring is where it belongs.

Lost Apple Watch in Sand at Doheny State Beach ..Dana Point, CA. .. Found and Returned

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)













*** Marisa had spent the weekend at Doheny State Beach campgrounds, Dana Point, CA. After returning to her home in San Diego, CA. she realized her Apple Watch was missing. She was sure it had to be at the beach in front of where she had camped.

Marisa thought maybe she could rent a metal detector and drive back 60 miles the next morning. During the process of searching for a metal detector, she found my contact information doing a google search.

She called me late that Sunday evening. After telling me that she had taken her Apple Watch off putting it into a small jacket pocket. She was sure it probably fell out of the pocket on the sloping sand in front of the campsite. I explained that I could drive to the location before dark and it wouldn’t be necessary for her to meet me there.

Everything went well, I got to the campsite with enough daylight to search the steep sandy slope which was about a 30ft x 40ft zone.  Fifteen minutes into the search I was able to find the watch with my metal detector.

I called Marisa to hear the joy in her voice when I told her I had her watch safe in my care. We discussed the possibility of mailing it to her. I just don’t like trusting the mail. I already had another errand to do in San Diego. So I met her the next day to personally give her the watch. No waiting to 2 or 3 days for the mail to get delivered.  Also, I was happy to get my other errand taken care of while in San Diego. Plus I know a place where I can get the best burritos in the southland. 

On my trip home I got another ring call in Laguna Beach.

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring in Sand at Newport Beach .. Found and Returned by a Ringfinder

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)




















The RingFinders Service helps man to find his cherished wedding ring … available to help you now .. 949-500-2136

*** Viet had been surfing at Newport Beach, CA. Just before going into the water he realized he still had his platinum wedding ring on. It was too far back to his car, so Viet put his wedding ring in a pocket of his backpack.

That evening when he got home Viet discovered his ring missing from the back pack. He and his wife drove more that 30 miles back to Newport Beach searching that night in the dry sand with no luck. He returned at 6am the next morning using a loaner metal detector that the lifeguards gave him. 

After two hours he was totally frustrated and he took a few minutes to google search ideas on how to find a ring with a metal detector. That was how he found my information on TheRingFinders metal detecting directory. I live very close to where the loss occurred, so I was on the beach by 9am. Viet was totally frustrated and tired from the many hours of searching. He did feel that he was searching the wrong areas and suggested I try a spot on the beach where he recognized a piece of ribbon in the sand. 

I started my grid search in that location while Viet went to his car for some water. Before he got 30 yards away from me I got a strong signal in my headphones. After retrieving the target I could see the platinum wedding ring in my scoop. I got his attention before he got to his car. When he saw his ring, couldn’t hold back his emotions, he choked up and took a few deep breaths. The sentimental meaning of his wedding ring and the frustration of so many hours of searching for the ring was overwhelming. Now the relief of having his ring back was real after coming so close to thinking it was lost forever.

I wonder how many people walk away from sentimental keepsakes that could have been found if they only knew a service like TheRingFinders exists. Many people find our service by accident searching through the internet. We have members internationally in over 400 cities.

Irreplaceable Ring Lost in the Sand at Newport Beach, CA. .. Saved from the Beach Cleaning Machine

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)
















**** Travis and his girlfriend were at Newport Beach, CA. when his ring slipped off his finger into the dry sand. He bent down to retrieve it. His girlfriend, unaware what had happened saw an opportunity to tackle him while he was in a awkward position. Even though it was a small area they could not find his ring that evening.

Travis’s mother called me after finding my contact information online. She told me that Travis was driving back to the location from 40 miles away. She asked if I could meet him at the beach with my metal detector. She also added that this ring was very sentimental to Travis as it had belonged to his father that had past away recently.

When I met Travis and his girlfriend, we walked out to the beach where he had very good landmarks to get us close to the location of the loss. He had even paced off how many steps from the nearby trash receptacle. 

My heart sank as I we got close to the spot. I could see the dreaded path of the beach sifting machine which only does two passes of the towel line this time of the year. 

I began my search grid over the top of the beach cleaning machine’s path, hoping that I could find evidence that it left some metal trash. Sometimes they just set the machine to get surface trash. Not this time, I could not even find a pull tab. It was hard not to tell Travis that we were possibly too late to find his ring. The city’s maintenance crew boasts that this Beach King can sift items as small as a dime.

This time we were lucky, I expanded the grid search area and Boom!! just five feet outside the Beach King’s path there was Travis’s ring. It was meant to be. His very sentimental ring was not going to be lost forever. This was not the first time that I could have given up easily. It feels so good to know, if I stay positive and persistent we can have a successful search. I love doing this and seeing the happy results of returning a precious keepsake live Travis’s ring.
