*** Dave and his wife were at Crystal Cove State Beach which is in Newport Beach, CA. His wife lost an hierloom gold ring playing in waist deep surf. He contacted me by text asking for help. I was able to get the location of the loss using text photos as Dave could not meet me at the location.

The first attempt was the day after the loss. It was a “no find” because the tide wasn’t low enough to allow me to get far out. The minus low tides were happening at early am hours and the main park is closed at 10pm. Conditions of the sand looked favorable but I would have to wait 4 days for the best tides. I had to walk in almost 2 miles at 1:30am.

It was a very dark night with no moon but I had a feeling that if the ring was still there, I had a good chance to find it. This was going to be a one time search. Can’t hike in two miles very many times. Anyway, I did a 45 minute grid search and the ring showed up 30’ to 40ft. outside the search zone only about 4 inches deep. 

Dave met me the next day where I was able to give him the ring. He had not told his wife, so he was going to surprise her that evening.  As always, it was a pleasure to help Dave and his wife to find a sentimental keepsake like this awesome gold ring that spent 4 days hiding under the sand in the Pacific Ocean.

***  Maria found my contact information on the internet a day after her white gold and diamond wedding ring slipped off her finger into the surf. She had taken her young son for his first time at the ocean. While holding him in shin deep water her ring slowly came off her finger. She couldn’t let go of her son to retrieve the ring as the next wave washed the ring out of sight.

The loss occurred at a high tide but this SoCal beach is one place that can pull a ring down into a deep trough of cobble stones. I made arrangements to meet Maria just a little after noon which is the best low tide.

When I arrived Maria her mother and sisters were all at the site. She had good landmarks that helped make this a successful search. I began my grid search approximately 20 feet below where she dropped the ring. Working up the slope to where she said the loss happened. I got the perfect white gold signal exactly where she said it dropped. The ring had not moved from that spot all night with two high tides. 

The whole family was excited as were several of the beach goers that witnessed the recovery. This never gets old for me, it’s great to see the joy and feel the gratitude from the  people I’m able to help.

….  Sukhm had proposed to Banpreet at beautiful Laguna Beach, CA. beach. They had a photographer record the moment. The photographer suggested they set the engagement ring in the wet sand for a photo with them in the background. An unexpected wave came up and the ring disappeared below the sand. I’m posting a copy of Banpreet’s side of the story below.

My fiance had just finished his proposal to me and we were beginning to take pictures with my new ring. We were attempting to take a picture with the ring in the sand and as our photographer was focusing-in on the ring, a wave came and swept the ring away. Our photographer frantically began to dig around the area to look for the ring, and my fiance immediately jumped into the water. I followed him and we were both waist deep in the water, grabbing at anything that felt like it could be my ring but would only turn out to be shells and debri every time. 30 minutes passed and we still couldn’t find the ring, my worst nightmare was becoming a reality and as the sun began to set, I started to believe that my ring was gone forever. 

I called my brother and asked him what we should do and he googled Ring Finders and Stanley was the closest to our location. My brother contacted him and before he could hang up the phone, Stanley was already on his way to us. Stanley arrived quickly with all of his equipment and began searching the area. We watched as Stanley scanned over the area where we lost the ring. Within a minute he scooped up the sand, and nodded his head with a smile. My fiance jumped up and shouted “No way!” Stanley found our ring! We were overjoyed and both embraced Stanley. 

Stanley truly has a talent for locating valuables and allowed us to have our happy ending. He was very kind, professional and helpful. We will always remember how he helped us during one of the most stressful situations in our life. We highly recommend him to anyone who loses something valuable. Thank you Stanley!


I would like to hear the photographer’s story, how he felt after suggesting putting the ring in the wet sand.

Gold Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Surf at Santa Monica Beach .. Found with Metal Detector

***** Emil and his family had been at Santa Monica Beach in Southern California. The beach had been closed for a couple month and many people were taking advantage of getting out of the house after staying at home for such a long time. After returning home he realized that his Gold and Diamond ring was missing. He assumed the ring was lost at the beach. 

Emil’s family were set up on the dry sand near the waters edge. They didn’t go swimming but did have some active playing in knee deep surf. These were places the ring could be hiding. Emil was able to find me while he was researching how to find a ring in the sand on a google search. He called me early the next morning. We met on Santa Monica Beach just north of the pier. A very heavily searched area by metal detector enthusiasts and raked daily by the beach maintenance personnel.

Emil was confident that he found the location they had been sitting the day before. I set up my equipment a began my grid search. Starting with the dry sand I could see evidence that this area had been search by other detectorists. I continued my scan of the area just as if no body
had detected it at all. After finding a few coins I had hopes that the persons that had been here before were not very thorough. We still had a chance to find the ring if it was lost here yesterday evening.

After finishing the dry sand, I started a grid on the damp sand. It was low tide so I wouldn’t have to go as far as the water level. Five grid lines down the wet sand slope I got a great signal. Two scoops down “Bingo” Emil’s 22k gold and diamond ring was in my scoop. I was very surprised, because I had only asked him if it was yellow or white gold. I had no idea it had so many sparkly diamonds. It was a bright sunny morning and that helped to just make that 22k gold with diamonds pop.

It was a great day and they kept saying “I can’t believe it” over and over.

***  After weeks of beach closures Ali’s family organized a family beach party at San Onofre State Beach, San Clemente  CA. While there Ali’s white gold diamond wedding ring set slipped off her finger into dry sand. Six or eight of their party attempted to find the rings. They did find the main ring but the enhancement ring could not be found.

Ali’s mother, Ester got into internet search mode, looking for metal detector services. She contacted a member of TheRingFinders who referred me to her. I left right away and was at San Onofre State Beach in a little more than a half hour. The beach had a limited entry quota and I got in a huge lineup up of surfer’s cars waiting their turn to enter the beach. ( possibly a 2 hour wait)

Ester saved the day by arranging with park officials to pick me up at the gate with her vehicle, saving a long waiting time. I loaded up my detector and scoop and we were at the location of the loss within minutes. Ali explained what happened and her husband Max told me it was a silver ring (wrong). It turned out to be white gold after I found it with less than a dozen swings of my detector search coil. The whole family group witnessed the quick recovery. They were amazed at how easy it was to find the ring after so many of them tried to search the small spot where the rings were dropped.

Ali and Max were excited and grateful to have their wedding rings back where they belong. The real hero was Ester , Ali’s mother, who found my contact information calling me and arranging for my entry passed the long line of surfers waiting to get into the crowded beach.
