**** Mila called me from Sunset Beach, CA. asking for assistance to find her platinum and diamond ring. The ring came off her finger as she jestured with a flick of her hand. It went directly into the dry sand disappearing immediately. 

She and her friend spent an hour feeling through the sand realizing it was going to be impossible to find the small ring in the sand. They also had to a very important appointment across town in just a few hours.

Mila told me she could be at the location till I arrived. From what she told me, I assured her we could find the ring in a short time. It was just a half hour drive and a short walk to the beach. I set up my detector and within a few minutes we had the beautiful platinum diamond ring back on Mila’s finger where it belongs.

On Sunday we had a special winter beach day. The daytime temperature was near 80 degrees at San Clemente, CA. I received a call from Julie just within minutes after her husband, PJ lost his tungsten wedding ring in the surf. She had my contact information because I had found the same ring last summer in the dry sand.

The tide was actually a medium high level when the ring was lost. PJ had retrieved his son’s surfboard when it washed ashore. He walked out to thigh deep water to push the surfboard to his son. That was when he felt the ring come off his finger. It’s always nice to know the person felt the ring come off and they have marked the location.

I was there to meet PJ shortly after the phone call. Even though it wasn’t low tide yet, it was more important to get the location and see the sand conditions. I thought it was worth a quick try knowing that my best chances were waiting for low tide. Starting with my Minelab Excalibur metal detector, I walked out into the surf. Thirty feet out I stepped into a 4 ft. trough that put me in water up to my shoulders. It was smarter to wait 2 hours for a lower tide. I tried again in the dark at 7 pm. Terrible search conditions, a deep trough with moving sand from past experience in the same location, I felt the ring was not findable. So I texted BJ and Julie. They thanked me saying the understand.

Three days after the first search I returned to the beach where the loss occurred. It was a much lower tide so my intention was just to see how much change the beach sand and cobble had made. We have many different type beaches and sand conditions vary.

I took out my Minelab Equinox 800 detector and my “Lucky “ new Xtreme Titaium sand scoop to the location planning to just see if there were any targets. When I saw the beach at a minus low tide, the cobble was still there and the sand had filled in the deep trough. I figured that the ring had to be at the bottom of the 4 ft. trough. I didn’t even want to get wet but just before leaving I walked into ankle deep water to do a couple test swings. It did get a signal that was more like a penny signal. Took my lucky Xtreme Ti scoop and retrieved PJ’s tungsten wedding ring. I couldn’t have been more surprised.

I texted PJ the good news with a picture of the ring. Later that evening I was able to return the ring to Julie. This was a special find for me because it’s my #400 recorded ring recoveries. Many searches and other types of finds like keys, cellphones, and once I located an abandoned bomb shelter. I love doing this, it’s not a job, it’s a passion!!

Ed called me from his home in Rancho Cucamonga after losing his ring at a small beach cove in Laguna Beach, CA. He stumbled onto the TheRingFinders website while trying to seek information about renting a metal detector. 

He told me that his wedding ring was in his beach chair and had fallen out as he left the beach. Now he was 60 miles away from the beach.

Knowing this beach very well and I was less than 8 miles away, I told him it would be unnecessary for him to meet me at the location. Such a small beach, I could be there and grid search the whole area in less than an hour. 

It was already dark when I arrived. I went directly to where Ed described he had been earlier that day. A few bottle caps and pull tabs then, BOOM, ED’s Tungsten Wedding Ring in the scoop. I sent a photo of his ring and he was able to pick the ring up at my place before 10 pm.  I love being able to have the time and the equipment to help people like Ed find such sentimental irreplaceable items like wedding rings.

**** Chris and Laura are from Georgia, they had just finished a road trip down the coast of California. Spending  the last day of their trip by enjoying the ocean sitting on the sand at Newport Beach, CA. Their day was upset by the loss of Laura’s platinum with diamonds wedding ring set.

When I received the call I had just finished another ring recovery 20 miles away. They were staying at a hotel very close to the location where they believed the loss occurred. So it helped that they could be there to guide me to the general area.

We began the search just as the sun was setting. They believed the rings were lost about 3pm that afternoon. My concern was they had set up their beach chairs on the wet sand. The rings would not have been buried as easily as if had been soft sand. After three or four hours with many people on the beach, someone could have visually found them.. 

After triple cross gridding and expanding the search area it was dark. I was running out of places to search. Both Chris and Laura were ready to give up. I told them I could not leave with good conscious until I did a couple passes on the upper soft sand. Half way into my second pass I got a strong signal, dug into the sand with my scoop. It was dark so I reached into the sand that was in my scoop and felt a large diamond ring. I knew it had to be one of the rings I was looking for. 

I held the ring up for Chris and Laura to see but they didn’t realize I had found their ring. They still had the sad look , that the rings were lost forever. Then I said out loud, I found the big ring. (2.67ct. Diamond/ platinum ring). It was a priceless moment, I can’t explain with words.

I took a few seconds more to swing the detector over the same area hoping to get the wedding band, no signal. Then I had second thought, I reached into my scoop and there was the wedding band lying flat in the bottom of the scoop. I had dug both at the same time. They had not remembered that they first set on the upper beach for a couple minutes before moving to the wet sand location.

A very happy couple that could finish their special vacation with a happy ending. It was a special search with emotions up and down. It was a pleasure to meet and help both Laura and Chris.

Beach Party Interrupted by Engagement Ring Lost in Sand .. Doheny Beach, Dana Point, CA.

****’Kerry and her fiancé Ben were attending a beach party at Doheny State Beach Campgrounds, Dana Point ,CA.  She put her platinum/diamond engagement ring on her lap while applying sunscreen. After getting up, the ring fell into the sand. She didn’t notice her ring missing for about an hour after getting up. Even though she knew the small area where the ring should be, neither she or any of her friends could find it.

One of the friends in their group told Kerry to call TheRingFinders. So Kerry called me asking me if I was available to help her find her engagement ring. I was just finishing another search, so I met her an hour later.

It was a happy group of beach people waiting to see if I could find the ring that everybody had tried to find. I just told them that I have the best tool to find rings and I know how to operate it. Fingers do not work well to find rings in the sand. I started in a straight line towards the suspected zone of the loss, when I got a signal. About 10 or 12 of the group got excited when the saw me pause over the signal. I just said, “calm down, this could be a pull tab or a platinum/diamond engagement ring” … Boom !!!  Kerry’s ring in the scoop.  She lit up like a Christmas tree, big smile and relieved that she had her special ring back where it belongs. It’s nice to get an easy search now and then. The unsuccessful searches take hours and we don’t write about them in our blogs.
