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!!

 **** Ari’s mother Bryn had been on the beach with the family watching her grandson taking surfing lessons. She took off multiple rings setting them on her lap while applying sunscreen. Her wedding ring set and three other rings. One ring was her husband’s ring who had past away just a month before. Late that night after returning to their summer beach house, she realized that her rings must have fallen into the sand.

The next morning her son Ari was able to borrow a metal detector to search the beach. Besides not knowing anything about using a metal detector he had difficulty remembering where they had been sitting. Ari decided that he would try to locate a professional metal detecting service. He went online where he found my contact information. I was only a couple miles away so we met on the beach about 11 am. There were already many beach goers setting up their blankets and umbrellas on the beach. Making it difficult to do a proper grid search. I did a preliminary search not bothering the people set up on the beach.

Returning later that afternoon I set up a large search grid and after 2 hours I found the two ring engagement/wedding ring set. A few minutes later the other three rings showed up in my scoop. All rings very sentimental especially at this time of grieving over the loss of her husband.

The rings survived over 24 hours on a highly populated part of the beach that gets sifted by very efficient beach cleaning machines and the possibility that someone could have accidentally found the rings. 

Knowing this beach well, I had a hard time staying positive about finding multiple rings in this section of Newport Beach. Another lesson for me to stay positive and be persistent.
