Tiffany Wedding Ring Set Lost in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Shona lost her Tiffany gold and diamond wedding ring set at Huntington Beach in the sand. She had taken them off, while applying sunscreen. She then put them in the cupholder of her beach chair. A few hours later after carrying her chair and other items to her car, she remembered the rings. The rings were not in the pocket of the beach chair.

Shona went back to the beach where a lifeguard told her to check the internet for TheRingFinders.com. She called me and I met her on the beach a short time after our phone conversation. That’s when I heard the whole story. It could possibly be a time consuming search, as the area she walked back to her car was almost a quarter mile. Now, she was having trouble finding exactly what trash can they sat near.

From experience I felt the rings most likely fell out when she first folded up the beach chair. Shona was going through he contents  the trash cans to identify things she had thrown in them. While waiting for her to give me the exact place she sat, I started a random search. Two 20 ft. passes in the general area, I got a simple signal and when I scooped it up, there were two Tifanny wedding rings in my sand scoop. They were definitely Shona’s rings. The lifeguard happened to be standing near me. I showed him and called Shona over to surprise her so the lifeguard could experience the joy of returning the wedding rings.

This is the second time recently that an impossible search turned out to be really easy. I know from experience these rings would have not have been here the next day. The dry sand next to the Huntington Beach pier gets detected everyday and every morning the dreaded Beach King beach cleaning machines invade the beach, claiming items as small as dimes.

It was a great day, also a pleasure to meet Shona and help find her rings.

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost Off Roof .. Long Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Craig was doing roofing repairs for a client in Long Beach, CA. when his platinum/ gold wedding band came of his finger. It rolled quickly down the roof just like a wheel. When he came off the roof he couldn’t find it in the 6 foot area between the house and the fence. The other option was the neighbor’s yard which was a heavily covered landscaping that had a lot of plants and dried leaves. After an hour of searching he decided to call for the help of someone with a metal detector. After a google search he found my contact information.

When I talked to Craig on the phone he told me the basic story. He would be to meet me with permission to search the neighbor’s yard. Less than an hour later I met him and he went over the events that led to the loss of his ring. Then we walked into the location directly in front of where he had been working on the roof next door. It was definitely a place where a ring could be hiding. A perfect place to use a metal detector and/ or hand held pinpointer.

As I was adjusting the settings on my metal detector and beginning the swing my detector, Craig yelled, ” there it is”.
The whole planter was covered with dry leaves, but the ring actually landed in the only clear spot, on the edge of the cement patio. It had flown more 20 ft. off the edge of the roof.

This has happened more than a half a dozen times, when the person or someone else spots the lost item while I’m doing a search grid with my detector. What is most important is Craig has his most sentimental wedding ring back where it belongs. It was a pleasure to meet Craig and help him search for his ring.

Surfer Lost Keys in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Recovered with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

While detecting at Huntington City Beach a lifeguard patrol vehicle drove up to me asking if I could help a surfer find his car keys. Most of the lifeguards know me and know I’m a member of TheRingFinders. I’m always willing to use my detector and my experience to help people who need help.
The lifeguard took me to Michael who was frantically digging in the sand where he had buried his keys before going surfing. This is not the first time I have seen this type of loss.

Michael was frustrated because he has done this many times before with no problem. He was beginning to think that somebody had seen him hide the keys and had taken them.

I have learned that key search metal detector settings should be an all metal mode. If not you might get a null instead a good tone. It depends on the materials the keys and the ring is made of.

I swung my detector coil around the inside of a 2 ft. deep hole that Michael had dug. On one side of the hole there was a positive signal. It turned out to be Michael’s car keys. Another happy surfer that didn’t have to have his car towed or pay for a locksmith to replace his keys. Both the lifeguard and Michael know how to get a metal detector expert if they need a ringfinder in the future. There’s a ringfinder directory as near as your celphone or computer.

Two Gold Rings Found Henderson Estate, Edmonton, Alberta Canada

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

I received a call from Nada this afternoon requesting my service to find her two rings which were lost while she was doing yard work on Monday,  however it was not until Tuesday that she realized  that her rings where not on her finger. I told her I would be there within one hour.

I met up with Nada at her home where she showed me the area she was working in the back yard.  She had been  pulling plants out of her flower pots and raised garden and was cleaning the back yard for the winter.

After asking Nada a lot of questions I started checking the flower pots and then couple of bags full of leaves with no luck.  I headed to her raised garden plot in the corner of her yard where I found the larger ring. The smaller ring proved much more difficult to find. I searched around the yard for another hour.  Nada was realizing that the ring was probably lost elsewhere but I told her not to give up yet.  She went in the house to warm up.

I continued searching and headed to another raised bed. There I heard a faint sound in my headphones.  The ring was covered in leaves! I called Nada over and told her it was her lucky day as both rings had been found.  She was very happy to have them back on her finger.

Thank you Nada in entrusting me to find your rings.

 

 

 

 

Lost Platinum Wedding Ring ..Huntington Beach, CA. .. Lifeguard Tower 18

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Keith was at Huntington Beach with friends. They were throwing a football on the lower beach. As Keith dove forward to unsuccessfully try to catch the football his platinum wedding ring flew off his finger. He and his friends spent a couple hours searching the sand.
It was getting late when Keith’s brother Google searched the Internet for a metal detector specialist. They called me and I was just two miles away detecting on another beach. I asked them what lifeguard tower and was it lost in the water or sand.

It was only a few minutes when I parked bringing my XP Deus because it is fast and has been awesome finding platinum rings lately. When we talked on the beach the tide was coming in. Kieth said he thought his ring flew towards the upper dry sand embankment when he dove for the football. Because the tide was coming in I started at the waterline working toward the upper embankment. Thirty minutes later I had covered the whole area with no success. I ran back to my car to get my Minelab CTX metal detector because I needed to work the incoming tide. Ten minutes in shin high water I got a 12-15 ID reading. I scooped the signal, taking the sand and target up to Keith. I dumped the pile of sand at his feet telling him, your ring is in there. He retrieved his ring, breaking out with a big smile thanking me.

This is not the first time the ring went in the opposite direction everybody thought it had gone. Evidently the ring came off after he missed the ball with his arms going back towards the water. The pressure of the incoming tide made it a race to choose the most important areas to search first. Even though we knew the ring was somewhere in this location it got a little crazy when it didn’t show up as quick as other searches of this type.

Lost Wedding Ring Set .. Paradise Cove, Malibu, CA. .. Recovered

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

 

Fernanda had been at Paradise Cove Sunday with a bunch of friends and their kids. They had reserved a couple lounge chairs with umbrellas for the day. It was a beautiful day with friends to have a beach party. That evening at home Fernanda realized that her wedding ring set was not on her finger. Missing was a Platinum Diamond solitaire engagement ring and a White Gold with 10 small diamonds and she had not remembered taking them off or doing anything to cause them slip off her finger.

She searched the house and the car without succcess. Monday Fernanda and her husband, Julio drove back to the beach to search through the sand for the rings. Tuesday they located a guy with a detector to search the same area, but he was only able to search a short time late in the evening before he had to leave without finding the rings. He suggested that they call me.

When I got the call it sounded like a long shot, because she had been many places Sunday before she realized her rings were gone. On top of that, someone had tried searching the beach area with a metal detector. It was a 75 mile drive but I felt it would be worth the drive to see if the beach area had more possibilities for searching again with my metal detectors.

Fernanda and Julio met me at noon Wednesday. I had a feeling that she had hope that I could find the rings. On the other hand Julio seemed skeptical that the rings were here at the beach. After a quick run down on where Fernanda had been the day of the loss, I started to grid in front of the lounge chairs. My plan was to move the chairs forward after clearing the area. Then swung my XP Deus metal detector between and under the second set of chairs. Boom! The first ring, then a second swing Boom! The second ring in the scoop.

Both Fernanda and Julio had walked down to the water’s edge to give me a little space while I searched. I caught Fernanda’s eyes first and she ran up to me to see the prize in my scoop. Then came Julio who told me I made a believer out him because all the time he thought he was wasting his time. It as an exciting moment for all. It’s not hard to understand that it seemed impossible that we would find the rings when she had not remembered taking them off or doing anything to cause them slip from her finger. It paid off to try one more time.

Lost Wedding Ring. In The County Of Ponoka. Hoadley, Alberta Canada

from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
Contact: 1-780-497-2118

I received a call from Brandon last week asking me if I could find his white gold wedding ring in three feet tall grass. He had lost it while out scouting for a good hunting spot in the bush.  I told him if it was there I would find it.

We agreed to meet this morning and drove out to the spot out in the country, as we drove and got talking Brandon told me it was imperative that the ring was found as he had just been married a month ago.

I asked Brandon how he lost his ring he told me he was brushing the grass off his pants near his jeep when he felt the ring fly off his finger but he had no idea of the direction. For me it was a good clue and with past experience I knew the ring had to be close by.

When we arrived at the location Brandon said the whole terrain had changed stating that the grass was standing at the time he lost the ring, and now all the grass was laying down like a strong wind had blown the grass down or animals had trampled it down.  This made the search a little harder.

After about two hours of searching I heard a fantastic sound in my headphone.  There was his ring well hidden in the grass about ten feet from his Jeep.  I called Brandon over and the expression on his face said it all.  He could not believe his eyes. He was very happy to have his ring back on his finger.

Another happy client.

Thank you Brandon for calling me.

 

Platinum Diamond Stud Ear Ring Lost For One Year… Found in Pea Gravel with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

I received a call from Connie in Los Angeles, she told me that her mother in law, Priscella had misplaced a set of platinum/ diamond stud earrings almost a year ago. They were a gift for a special occasion over ten years ago and very sentimental to Priscella. After all the time that has past they had believed these ear rings were gone forever.

Fast forward ten months, Connie was visiting Priscilla and while sitting in a patio area Connie spotted the glimmer in the pea gravel that turned out to be one of the ear rings. They spent some time searching through the gravel for the other stud ear ring but not quite sure that the pair had been lost in the same location. To make things worse, the house had been sold. They would be leaving the property in two weeks.

After hearing the story I told her we had to give it a try. After all it wasn’t like she was sure both studs had been dropped in the same location.  I was available to meet her the next day.  Connie said, she would have the time to be there with the matching stud the next day at noon.

When I arrived we walked to the patio area where I set up my XP Deus metal detector with a hi frequency coil set at 74 KHz. The ladies went inside to take care of something. I began to search for “the needle in a haystack”. I immediately found two small pieces of wire, then Boom! One small platinum/ diamond stud ear ring that had been hiding for almost a year, looking at me from 2″or 3 ” in the gravel.

I was at the table taking photos of the prize when Connie walked up behind me asking “What’s the best thing you have ever found” .. My answer was .. A diamond stud ear ring as I pointed to the esr ring
on the table. Hugs and excitement from both Priscella and Connie. They had not built up their hopes of finding the matching ear ring so finding it was an awesome surprise.

I won’t get to see Priscella’s husband when she surprises him this evening by just wearing them at the dinner table. It was another special search and recovery. Also a pleasure to meet and help such nice people.

Contact: 1-732-581-0285

While out with my family at a friends bbq with bad cell reception as we were leaving i received a message from Edward Cropski Aka NJ Lost Ring Finder about a Diamond wedding ring set lost in Sandy Hook NJ. I also had a voicemail from Jessica, The woman who lost the rings. She had taken her rings off and put them into the cupholder of her chair to put lotion on and forgot to put them back on. It was not until they were packing up for the day and her father began to shake the sand from the chairs when she realized she never put them back on. But it was already too late, They were gone! I called her to make arrangements to conduct a search and explained to her that special permission was required since the beach she is at used to be a military base and is now a Federal park where metal detecting is prohibited. She called me back about 15mins later as i as driving home to tell me she has gotten the permission needed for a search but i would have to get there quickly as the park is closing at 9pm. Within minutes of getting home I said goodbye to my wife and daughter i grabbed my Minelab Ctx 3030, Jumped back into my truck and started the 45min drive to Sandy Hook. The ride then became longer as i got caught it traffic along the way. When i finally arrived i only had 15 minutes to conduct the search! Luckily her family had marked out the area with umbrellas and other items where they were. Within 10 minutes i had found both rings, 6 ft apart from one another! Another happy ending!

Lost Key Fob in Sand .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

During the month of August thay have a country music festival on the sand at Huntington State Beach. That night during the event, Daniel lost his car key fob in the sand. He returned the next morning driving more than 50 miles in hope of finding his keys.

After attaining permission from the supervisor dismantling the structures Daniel began to shuffle though the sand hoping to see his key fob. The supervisor saw how frustrated Daniel was and gave Daniel my information. I was able to meet Daniel soon after he called me as it was only a 6 mile drive.

The tractors and forklifts were courteous enough to give us space to work. After digging a couple dozen aluminum beer cans the keys showed up in my scoop. It did take about an hour because Daniel was a little confused about where he was the night before.

Daniel and his friend thanked me and told me they were beginning to feel that their long drive was going to be a waste of time. It was a good search. I always find the item I’m looking for in the last place I look.😎
