Gold Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Surf .. Paradise Cove, Malibu, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Mary’s husband called me the morning after she lost a white gold diamond ring in the surf at Paradise Cove near Malibu, CA. Mary was in waist deep water at a mid high tide when she was unexpectedly hit by a large wave. She felt her ring come off her finger right at that moment.
Her husband want to know if there was a chance to find it. I told him, we first needed to return to the general location. Then we had to see the sand conditions. ( The So. Cal. beaches vary from day to day ) Also our chances are better if somebody can be available to tell exactly what happened and where the loss occurred.
We agreed that Mary would meet me at Paradise Cove at 11:30am. The tide was rising which wasn’t a good thing. If necessary, I might have to return the next day at the lowest tide. First things first, meet the person that lost it, get the general location and give it a try with my CTX 3030 metal detector.
Everything went like clock work as we met on the beach. Mary told me that she had worn this ring for 10 years and it meant the world to her. She paced back and forth helpless on the upper sand watching me each time I dug a pull tab, etc. In my mind I was planning a return trip for the next day. Then the 12-07 reading on my CTX ID screen and a definite tone to match. I knew the ring would be in this scoop. Yes! Mary’s white gold diamond wedding ring. It was halfway up in the wet sand and must have been thrown forward as the wave hit her from her backside.
Where, how and when didn’t matter now. What was important, is the fact that all our efforts worked to get Mary’s rearing back where it belongs and the story of her ring goes on. I don’t get tired of doing this when I see how grateful Mary was. A sight to remember.

Lost Tungsten Wedding Ring .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found and Returned

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I woke up to find an email from Katelyn whose husband had lost his Tungsten Carbide wedding ring at Huntington Beach three days before. She wanted to know if I had found a tungsten ring recently.
I sent her a reply and asked her to call me if she was interested in me searching for the ring.
When she called I told her that this beach is heavily hunted with detectors and the beach cleaning machines are very efficient. I would still be willing to go if I could get her husband Casey to give me details of where and how the loss occurred.
Casey called explaining that he had put his ring in one of his shoes for safe keeping while he went swimming. When he got back to his towel which was near lifeguard tower number 3 at Huntington City Beach. (heavily searched everyday by detectorists)
He picked up his shoes and walked 100 yards to the wall near the pedestrian/ bicycle path. That’s where he checked his shoes, discovering that his ring was missing.
I told him as honestly as a could that our chances were not the best but I was close to the location and I would give it a try. I understood his directions so it wouldn’t be necessary for him to drive 50 miles to show me the area.
When I got to the beach I could see that they were preparing for a big surfing event. There were materials on the beach for building bleachers, etc. This was in our favor because the beach cleaning machines could not sift close to the materials. I grid search most of a football field size area from the lifeguard tower #3 to the wall when I got a signal that turned out to be Casey’s ring. What a surprise for me and anybody else that knows this beach. Rule of the day… “You can’t find it if you don’t TRY.”

Called Casey with the good news. He could not drive to Huntington Beach from Yucaipa,CA. So we agreed that I send it by mail which only took two days. Casey sent me the photo of himself and Katelyn just after they received the ring. I’m learning everyday to stay positive on these searches, it’s not easy if you think you know everything. Stay Humble!

FitBit Watch Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I happened to go to local beach last night to do a little metal detecting to keep my skills sharp. I was working down the beach when I saw a group of about 8 people down a way, scurrying around the sand with their phones out and lights on. It looked like a desperate search, so I made my way over to them, and asked if I could help. I explained that I was with The Ring Finders, and we help people find things that they lost. They explained the watch had been on a towel, and then they were chased back by the incoming tide, and believed that is when they lost the watch.

I began my search where they thought they had lost the watch, and found a lot of bottle caps and a few coins. I kept up the grid with similar results. Then the young lady who originally pointed out where to start, realized that we needed to move North of our position after she noticed the trash cans they were in front of earlier. I continued my grid in the new area, working my way closer to the water, again finding more bottle caps and a few more coins. I got to where the water had come up over the edge when I got another good signal. This time it was the watch. Well there was a great hug given, and a lot of excitement. It was now about 10:00 PM, and I did not know how long they had been searching before I arrived, but they were very happy now. A great night out indeed!

Diamond Engagement and Wedding Ring Set Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received an email from Pierra this morning explaining how she had lost her engagement and wedding rings the evening before. She had them “safely tucked away”, when her small child apparently opened up the purse and dumped them into the sand. They were unable to find them, but did not contact me until this morning. This worried me, because I know that this beach is meticulously cleaned by the county daily, and I feared the rings may have been swept up by the mechanical sifting machines. Her husband called, and I agreed to meet Pierra at the spot, because I know that not everything happens as we think.

When I got to the area, and was shown by Pierra where they had been sitting, I was encouraged because I could see that the sifting machines had gone through the area, but not where she had been sitting. I began to search where she showed me, and found a dime. I made a few more passes when Pierra came over to say that she thought the area might be a bit more South of my search area because of some trash she had recognized from the day before. I then lined up in that spot and began a new grid. After a few more passes, I got a good signal and dug. I checked my scoop and saw a real nice diamond band, so I asked her how many rings were involved; she said two. I scanned the remainder of the sand I had removed, and recovered her engagement ring as well. She was very happy, and with great joy to have her rings back on her finger. It was a great opportunity to see such a wonderful smile, and to know that after a tough night’s sleep last night, tonight’s sleep for her will be sweet.

Lost Ring in Surf, Throwing Football .. Strand Beach, Dana Point, CA.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I’ve been checking my emails more often than usual, because more inquiries about TheRingFinders service have been coming to me through emails. Most of them seem to be written late at night or early am hours. Most likely because they are not able to sleep thinking about their loss.
Lisa had emailed me asking if I could help her and her husband Logan find a gold wedding ring lost at Stand Beach, Dana Point, CA.
It was lost the day before at high tide in knee deep water while throwing a football. He felt the ring come off his finger the moment it happened.
I get excited with this kind of story because it can be a successful search if the sand is not too mushy. We need to get close to the general location which sometimes can be a problem.
I talked to Logan on the phone and he told me it was just south of the last lifeguard stand and he could see a large blue tarp covering a fence on the slope directly in front of where he lost the ring.
I arrived a half hour before Logan and Lisa, at low tide the next morning. The wet sand conditions were perfect, not too soft. Walking down the beach I found the landmarks Logan gave me. It didn’t take long and I had the ring in my scoop. Twenty minutes later they walked up to me on the beach. I asked them a question about what type metal the ring was then held the ring up for them to see. They were surprised immediately and the smiles were a sight to remember.

Local Newport Beach Surfer Loses Ring in Sand .. Found and Returned

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I got a call from Indy who was standing on the beach at 38th Street, Newport Beach, CA. He had been searching the sand for an heirloom ring that had been given to him by his grandfather. A unique ring made of rose gold, white gold and yellow gold. It had fallen out of his backpack where he had put it for safekeeping while he surfed that morning. Somebody on the beach saw him searching and told him about TheRingFinders website.
Indy is one of our local Newport Beach surfers who is on the beach every day in the summer. He was very courteous on the phone explaining he didn’t have much money. I told him it doesn’t matter, I will be there in 20 minutes, just don’t bury it any deeper in the sand. I could find it if he can stay in the area till I get there.
It did take awhile to find parking but after walking onto the beach, Indy showed me where he had laid his backpack. These are the easiest searches so it was seconds till I had his ring in the scoop. This ring meant a lot to him, I could tell by the look of relief on his face.
I’ve been on the beach most of my adult life, I would have loved to have been a teenager living near the beach. It was a pleasure to help this young man.

Lost Rose Gold Wedding Ring .. Monarch Bay Club, Dana Point,CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Krystal had been at Monarch Bay Club on the beach, Dana Point,CA. with relatives and it was a great day until she got home. That’s when she reached into her beach bag to retrieve her Rose Gold wedding ring, which she had placed there for safe keeping. It was not in the bag. Krystal and her husband Bob looked everywhere in their car without finding the ring.
She believed it may have been pulled out of the bag when she was pulling out items during their day at the beach.
The next day they brought a borrowed metal detector to the beach.
They spent a half day with the detector scanning the whole beach. Now the tide was starting to move in. Their friend google searched several key words when she came up with TheRingFinders.com.
When they called me I told them we still had enough light to do a search. The area could possibly be massive.

I arrived, beginning my search grid to stay ahead of the incoming tide. After about an hour and a half I was preparing my words to tell them I can not locate the ring. I could only see a small 20’x 20′ area to search. Bingo! I got the sound and reading I was looking for. A quick scoop in the wet sand and I had the ring in my hand.

Krystal, Bob and their friend were standing off in the distance and they had that hopeless look on their faces. I walked up to them asking for a description of the ring at the same time I held it up for them to see. Happy faces with a little bit of tears of joy. We had a nice conversation walking back to our cars. It never gets old finding these sentimental mental symbols of Krystal and Bob’s love for each other.

Gold Pendant Lost at the Beach .. Salt Creek Beach, South Laguna, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Megan called asking my help finding a gold pendant that had been lost in the sand at Salt Creek Beach. Share had been at the beach that afternoon with her nieces. Towards the end of the day she felt her gold chain dangling from her neck with the clasp open. A gold pendant that had been gifted to her by her mother was missing. This was a gift that was purchased in the Far East and was symbolic for Megan’s name.

She thought we could meet the next morning but I convinced her that she could sleep better if we could find it tonight. The area she believed it to be was less than 40’x40′. That would take a half hour or less. Megan said, she could be there with her uncle and aunt to meet me at 9pm.

It’s about 4 or 5 blocks down to location. She was having a slight difficulty finding the exact spot because the tide had risen and it was dark. I started to grid search when another detectorist came out of the darkness asking if we had lost something. He acted a little strange and seemed like he wanted to help. I did not need another detector interfering with my detector in such close quarters. I told him I could handle the search and if we needed him we would ask him later.

At the end of an hour unsuccessful searching I was beginning to think that the other detector guy may have found the gold pendant and didn’t tell us. It’s hard to search when your mind keeps trying to discourage you. I moved closer towards the incoming tide just at the edge of the damp sand when I got a nice gold tone that proved to be Megan’s pendant.

Everybody was on edge because we were running out of places to search. They had even quit watching me. So it was easy to not give away that I had found it. I walked up to Megan asking her to look into my scoop. She yelled, you found it and immediately broke out in tears of gratitude. This special gift from her mother was back where it belongs. It took a little longer than I thought but everybody slept well that night including me.
I probably should apologize to that other detectorist for thinking that he may have already found it and didn’t tell us.

Sentimental Silver Cross Lost .. Victoria Beach, Laguna,CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Robert called, asking if I was available to help him find a silver cross in the sand at Victoria Beach, South Laguna. This was a sentimental keepsake that his wife had for many years and she was devastated with the thought that she would never see it again.

He could not meet me at the location as he had a meeting that next morning. For me it was not necessary for Robert to be there. His description of where they had been was clear and would be easy to find. All I had to do was be there early enough to beat any other detectorists to the beach. Besides I know there is a missing silver cross and nobody else knows that.

As I suspected, I reached the area to the right of the lifeguard tower and began my grid. Three passes and Boom! Robert’s wife’s cross in the scoop. Called Robert with the good news. Robert me met a few hours later picking up the cross and telling me that he was going to surprise his wife when he got home. I wish I could have seen that. Another fun search with a happy couple that I enjoyed helping.

 

Mercedes Electronic Key Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from a young man Wednesday evening, explaining how he had lost the electronic key to his Mercedes, and asked if I would be able to help. It had happened just a couple of hours before, so I knew the likelihood of a recovery was good. We arranged to meet within a half hour, and I was on my way.

When I got there he explained that he had left the key on his towel when he went into the water, and when he picked up the towel, the key vanished. He and his friends had searched the area quite thoroughly before I got there, as I could tell by the grid lines in the sand where he took me to. I began my search, and came up with numerous bottle caps and other metal debris, but no key. It was then when I got out of the search area, that I got a good hit in my head phones, and dug. There in my scoop was the key, which when seen, caused the young man to run over an greet me with shouts of joy and hugs. It must have been a sight to see. He did not want his picture taken, but his friend volunteered for a picture. A fun day indeed.
