**** Aly and Matthew were on the beach near the pier in San Clemente, CA. to watch the sunset. Aly lost Tifanny interlocking circle ring while waving her hands to chase seagulls that attack their snacks. They spent quite awhile searching the dry sand and it was beginning to get dark.

Mat found my contact information while searching the internet for help. I met the couple on the beach with my metal detector and a very high powered search light. We had two positives going for us. Aly had felt the rings come off her finger and marked the location with a stick. Secondly they were able to stay at the location of the loss till I arrived.

There was a 10 ft. slope on the dry sand where they had placed the marker. Even though I don’t depend on VDI numbers, I knew any high number or high tone could be Aly’s silver Tiffany double rings. Within the first couple minutes I got a high tone which I mistakenly told them, here’s your ring. Wrong! It was only a dime. Then, closer to the marker I got a another high tone which just turned out to be a quarter.

The search area had been grid searched in one direction, so I started a cross grid in the other direction, expanding it another 20 feet. I wasn’t quite sure of the size of the ring. A small silver ring on edge could have been missed, but in this situation that wasn’t the case. I found the ring 15 feet further away from where she was standing when the ring set came off her finger. It must have come off at the end of her arm movement.

Aly was very happy to have this special ring back, as it was a gift from her grandmother several years ago. Mat was also the hero for finding a RingFinder using his smartphone.

I don’t check Craigslist very often, except when I’m trying to locate an owner of a ring. The other day I saw a Craigslist lost and found  post that gave too much information about where the ring was lost. I called Ryan to ask if it had been found? It had been lost  on a Thursday on the dry sand in Laguna Beach,CA. This being the beginning of summer with many new people searching the beaches with metal detectors I thought that the ring probably had been found.

I volunteered to go give the area a quick grid search. It’s a short beach with only about 30 ft of dry sand from the beach homes to the wet sand. Ryan had put his white gold wedding band in the cupholder of his beach chair. He forgot it was in the cupholder when leaving then walked less that 200ft to leave the beach. 

When I got to the beach I found a gold colored ring within the first few minutes which turned out to not to be Ryan’s ring. Later I searched the whole area of dry sand with no success.  That night I started to think about one small spot that people were lying on the sand and the possibility that the ring could of fallen out of the cup holder on the walk to the car in the wet sand.

I returned he next morning at a lower tide and found Ryan’s ring in the area where people had been sitting the first day. It was difficult to stay positive when I knew it had been over four days in such a heavily hunted beach. 

I sent Ryan a picture of the ring and he immediately text me a reply.,” That’s it! I can’t believe you found it, I thought it was gone forever”

Ryan and his wife were out of town for a few days, actually planning to purchase a replacement ring.  I returned his ring a few days later. Sometimes it’s easy to give up on a search if you think about all the negative possibilities of where the ring could have been lost. I just concentrate on eliminating the hiding places that a metal detector can be used find it.
