My wife woke me early this morning; my phone was ringing. I did not get to it in time to answer, but waited to see if the person calling would leave a message, he did. It was Matt, who had lost his ring at the beach the night before. I called him back immediately and we talked a bit, and from what he explained to me I thought his ring may be gone for good. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Southern California because the County cleans it daily with sifting machines that pick up virtually everything. I let him know that if he would meet me there in 30 minutes, that I would leave right away in order to try and beat the machines.

When I got there, I could see Matt out in the sand doing what I have termed, “the lost ring shuffle”, where someone is trying to find their ring by dragging their feet through the sand in grid lines. When I got out to him, I could see where the sifter had taken a swing very close to his grid lines, and also out on the towel line closer to the slope. He explained to me that he believed the sifter had gone outside the possible loss area. I set up to grid, turned my machine on, took one swing, got a good signal, put the scoop in and dumped the sand, and there peeking out was the ring. I reached down, grabbed it, and held it out to Matt, who was in total disbelief. He had told me that the night before he gave the ring to his wife to hold while he went to the water with their child. While he was gone his wife was dealing with their beach equipment when the ring fell off her finger, and was gone in the sand. She had a hard night, feeling guilty for the loss, but today all joy is restored. What a great morning. I then went home and had my breakfast and coffee.

Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

Friday afternoon I received a call from Madison. She had lost her ring at the beach earlier, and after a relentless effort to find it by her and her family, she got on the internet and found The Ring Finders where she got my name and number. She asked if would be able to help, and I let her know that I was on my way and would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach and walked out, Madison met me and walked me over to the suspected area of the loss. I could see an area about 8 foot in diameter that had been scooped out and surrounded by a berm about 8 inches high; this where they had searched for the ring. She explained that her mother had given the ring to her 3 years earlier, and that it meant a whole lot to her. Her father told me that she had been tearfully distraught since she knew the ring was missing. They explained that Madison had taken it off and put it into a hat so as not to lose it, but not remembering, later in the day shook out the hat, and the ring was gone. They were on vacation from London, UK, and Madison thought it was lost forever. I got right to work, and after 3 passes in the grid, I received a solid signal in the berm on the edge of the scooped out area. I scooped out at least 3 times, where they had unknowingly buried it much deeper than it had already sunk into the sand. I finally had the ring in the scoop, pulled it out to show Madison who was overcome with joy, I mean LOOK AT THAT SMILE! It was so awesome to bring her joy back!

A couple of days ago I received a call from Terisa about the loss of her Mercedes electronic car key. She had gone to the beach to relax, and laid out her blanket on the slope to the water to enjoy the sun and pleasantness of the ocean. She tucked her key in her waist band and laid down. When she awoke from a sleep she enjoyed her key was gone. It must have come out while sleeping and moving around. She searched, and others in the area helped, but were unable to find the key. I let her know that I would be there as soon as possible.

When I got to the area Terisa was unable to meet me there, so I was going to with the information she gave me to figure out where to start my search. As I was searching a gentleman came over to inform me that a lady had lot her car key earlier and was wondering if I could help. I let him know that was why I was there, and he proceeded to show me where the actual search area was. He was one of those who helped Terisa earlier in the day. I could see the drag marks in the sand where they had dragged their feet and hands in the sand hoping to feel the key. The sand moves so much when you search in that manner, it usually moves the object out of the way. I began my search, and during the second pass got a real strong signal, dipped the scoop in and out came Terisa’s key. She wasn’t able to meet for the return until the next day, so I got down there, let her know that I had arrived, and did a little metal detecting while I waited (always good to keep practiced up). When She arrived she was very happy to have the key back, and I was very happy to have made her day!

Ryan called yesterday. He was at the beach with his friends, and playing beach games. When playing beach racquet ball, he swung at the ball, and felt his ring fly off of his finger. The good thing is that they had not moved form the area, and knew and approximate area of where the ring had come off. I let him know that I would come right away because time is always the enemy in a loss at a public beach or park area.

When I got to the beach I found that parking was crazy, so not to waste time I found a parking spot about 1 1/2 miles away, but on occasions such as busy weekends I bring a Segway MiniPro. I grabbed all my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and was at the spot of the loss within minutes. I walked out to the area, and Ryan showed me what had happened. I explained what I would be doing to conduct my search, and that I would show him everything I found. I began and found a bottle cap, a penny, another bottle cap, another bottle cap, another penny, then boom, a real good signal. I put the scoop in and pulled out a real nice heavy ring. I held it up, and Ryan was very excited. This ring had been custom made for him by his fiancé, and given in preparation for their upcoming marriage. He gave me a big hug, and everyone celebrated the recovery; what a great day!

Kellen called, he had lost his wedding ring in the harbor where he, family, and friends had rented a house for their vacation. Across the street from where they were staying was a little beach with a swim platform about 70 feet out in the water. While he was walking to the swim platform, he was fingering his ring trying to make sure it did not fall off, but it was a little loose to start with and it slipped off of his finger to his surprise. He immediately tried to catch it but it was already gone in the chest deep water. This was the ring his wife had given him 10 years ago when they were married, and he didn’t want to lose it. He dove and dove about 30 times trying to find it but the bottom was covered in muck and some type of small mussel which made it very difficult to identify the ring in the murky water. He found me online and asked for help in finding the ring. I checked the tide chart, and saw the tide was rising, so we made arrangements for me to come back in the evening at the next low tide.

When I arrived Kellen was waiting. I donned my wetsuit, and he and I discussed how the ring was lost, where he thought it might be in relation to the swim platform, and at what angle he had entered the water. With that information I walked out to the area and began the search. I got a real good signal and tried to scoop, but had a hard time retrieving the object. The mussels on the bottom were tied together with what seemed to be a spiderweb like algae which made it difficult to get the scoop in and out. I kept working on that signal until I ended up with an aluminum bottle. I continued the search, next finding an old crusted folding knife. I worked a grid shallower and shallower until in about waist deep water I received a nice smooth tone in the headphones. I dug, and in one scoop I had the object, so I knew it was shallow. I shook the scoop out but the mussels and algae had to be removed by hand to search for the metal item. It was almost dark, but when I removed the last bit of mussels, I could see the ring in the bottom of the scoop. I reached in, and slipped it on my finger so as not to lose it, then looked to the shore where Kellen was sitting, and raised my detector and scoop to let him know we had success. When I got to shore I handed the ring to Kellen who identified it as his. His wife had been out riding bikes with friends, and she pulled up as Kellen and I were talking at the curb. She was very happy to see the ring again as well. Really a great feeling to be able to be a help to others, doing what you enjoy!

I got a text from Dino that I did not see until early in the morning asking if I were the Ring Finder that I answered in the affirmative. He got back to me later in the morning stating that he had been at the beach with family, when they flew into panic mode. One of the ladies had been holding onto her husband’s rings when he went into the water, but when they were ready to go she looked and 2 of them had come off of her finger and lost in the fine sand. Luckily they were able to find one of the rings, but the other eluded them. I told Dino I would come immediately because I knew this beach is cleaned meticulously by the county, and I was hoping to beat the machines to the spot.

When I pulled up to park my phone rang, it was Dino, a little disheartened. He told me he had gone out to the area of the loss and could see that the machines had gone through exactly where they had been, and asked me what I thought we should do. I let him know that I was there already, and there is always hope when it comes to ring searches. When I got to the spot it didn’t look good, the beach was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. He showed me where they were sitting, and I could see that there was about a 7 foot wide swath the machines had left while avoiding the trash cans. Dino asked how it looked, and I admitted it did not look very promising except for that 7 foot wide section. I said, “we could only hope it was lost in that area”. I began my grid through the whole area including the untouched swath, 1 pass, 2 passes, then on the 3rd pass just at the edge of that 7 foot wide swath I got a nice signal, put in my scoop and pulled out the ring. Dino couldn’t believe it; I couldn’t believe it! What were the odds, really! What a great morning! I love this service!

I received a call from Christina whose husband Bill lost his ring the day before while enjoying the beach with his family. They are vacationing from Sacramento, CA, and to lose his wedding ring of 21 years was not what he expected on the trip. Knowing the County and how they keep this beach clean, we arranged to meet about 30 minutes later.

When I got there Christina and Bill met me and walked me out to the area they believed the loss occurred. I looked around and realized that the beach sifters had not come through the area, so I felt good about the ring still being there. I started my search immediately because although it was morning, people were already filling the beach. I searched the area as fully as possible considering the beach was filling up, but was unable to find the ring. I then let them both know that it was going to futile to continue the search with so many people coming, so I let them know that I would be back to search the whole area again at 8:00 PM when people had gone home. When I returned there were very few people left, and I began again starting from the lowest point on the beach working my up the slope. My first signal was a silver color wedding band, and I thought I had it, so I sent Christine a picture asking if was Bill’s. Bill then met me out on the beach to check the ring. It was not his, it was about 3 sizes too large and made of a different metal than his. He and his son went to get dinner, and I continued my search. About an 1 1/2 hour later I got another good signal, and in my scoop was another silver color ring. I got my flashlight and gave it a closer inspection. This time I could read PLAT on the inside, and it was a much smaller diameter than the previous find.

I called Bill to him know, and he and his son made their was over to where I was waiting. When I showed him the ring he was a bit hesitant regarding claiming it his, until he placed it on his finger and it fit perfectly. He told me he thought the ring was lost forever, and really was appreciative of my effort. I then said The Ring Finders don’t give up! It is so great to know that his joy will be going all the way back to Sacramento.

I received a desperate call from David. He had gone to the beach for the day, and when he decided to go in the water, he buried his keys in the sand so no one could find them. The problem was that when he was ready to leave, he moved his towel, and then forgot where the keys had been buried. He called his father who found me on the Ring Finders site, and told his son to give me a call. I told him I would come right away.

When I arrived David and I found each other, and he took me to the spot where he had been during the day. He showed me where he had been, and I could see where he had been digging in the sand, so that is where I began my search. The keys were not in that area, so I began to expand the search. I was finding a few metal items such as bottle caps and foil, but not the key. I continued working back away from his original spot, and then all of a sudden a real nice signal in the headphones. I scooped, and there were his keys, about 15 feet from where he thought they were. I was glad to have been able to help him out.

Kevin called last night asking for help in finding his wedding ring. He was playing football in the sand on the beach, when his friend threw the ball to him. As he went to catch the ball, the ball hit his left hand knocking his wedding ring off of his finger. The loss had happened just a little while earlier, and he knew the spot where it happened, so it sounded like a real good possibility of a recovery. I told him I was on my way.

When I got there Kevin met me, and took me to the area of the loss. We talked about it, and he explained and showed me what had happened. He showed me where he figured the ring would have landed. I then let him know that things don’t always happen as we think they do, but sometimes the forces that cause the loss often make a ring go into a direction we would not normally think. I figured on doing a complete grid of the area, and set to start back away from where Kevin had originally thought; 1, 2 , 3 swings boom, a good solid tone in the headphones, one scoop, and I had Kevin’s ring in my hand to his surprise. He was overjoyed, and was able to reunite with his friends. What a great evening!

Kevin sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

Thank you once again for coming down to the beach on such short notice to help me find my ring. I truly appreciate your help. The review I wrote up is below:

“When I lost my wedding ring on the beach and my friends and I spent 45 min rooting through the sand for it unsuccessfully, I thought it was lost for good. Thankfully I found Steve at theringfinders.com and he was able to come out within 30 minutes. I am not exaggerating when I say he found the ring in ONE MINUTE! It was incredible. Such a nice guy and such an expert at his craft. If you lose jewelry in the South Bay, call Steve.”

Keep up the good work!
