Lost Ring In Surf at Laguna Beach .. Found

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

 

Paul actually saw his ring come off his finger while searching for lost keys in waist deep surf. He was at Picnic Cove which is one of many small beaches in Laguna Beach, CA. When I talked to Paul he said it happened 3 hours before calling me. Checking the tide table, determining that it happened just about high tide. It was a good sign that we had a chance to find it at low tide. The only problem is all the beaches have different characteristics. They also change with the currents and wave action.

We made arrangements to meet that night just before low tide. Going by his verbal directions I arrived earlier to start the search from the upper sand slope as the tide receded. Paul and his wife Sonia showed up just before I reached he waters edge. He directed me out onto the bedrock reef, where I gridded in knee deep surf. It was dark and there were many crevasses that could hide a ring.

When I came back to the sandy part of the beach, Sonia told me she thought it was lost closer to the sand. I took a few minutes to finish where I had left off my original grid. Boom! Paul’s platinum rose gold with diamonds wedding ring, there in a couple inches of water right where the sand met the rock reef. Paul and Sonia were standing up further on the beach with that look of doubt on their faces, but that changed to smiles of joy when I held up the ring for them to see.

It was a beautiful custom made ring that Sonia had designed. She had custom made for Paul while she was on vacation in India. Paul was embarrassed that this happen after they had only been married four months. Finding the ring was a special moment for all of us. I love helping people.

Lost Celphone at Long Beach, CA. Found and Returned

Friday night Katie was with friends on the beach at Belmont Shores when she lost her cellphone in the dry sand. The next morning she was able determine that her phone was still at the beach using the “find my friend app” on her roommates phone. After several hours searching the sand with three of her friends, one of them searched the internet and found TheRingFinders site.

I got the call and met Katie on the beach soon after verifying that she could be there. It took about a half hour till I got the exact signal that matched my cellphone. Katie was close by, so I called her over to hear what I heard in my headphones. Then I let her retrieve the phone by feeling through the sand.
It made it a special recovery for her and it’s always safer not to damage the phone with a sand scoop.

These days of smartphones it’s not only the cost and trouble to purchase a new phone. These phones have photos and information that can’t be replaced. I love helping people find things that mean so much to them. It’s very difficult to rent or use a metal detector if you have never used a metal detector. Call member of TheRingFinders.

 

Gold Ruby Ring Lost at Huntington Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I got a call yesterday from Deena regarding a ring she lost at the beach. She was there with some friends and their dogs having a fun time, when she picked up a ball to throw for one of the dogs. She made an underhand throw, and as the ball left her hand, so did her ring. She thought it should be where the ball had landed, so she and her friends looked and looked with no results. She found me on the internet, and I asked a few questions, and then let her know I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I arrived, I found them down on the beach where the loss occurred, and Deena proceeded to show me what had happened. She had thrown towards the water which worried me a bit because the tide was coming in and the wave action was a bit intense at the water line. I began where they believed the ring had gone going up and down the slope getting a bottle cap, a few pennies and a quarter, but no ring. I then went down closer to the water when it receded and made a few grids there. They really did not believe it was that far, so I came back up and decided to cross grid the area I had already searched, but with a much wider grid. I made 3 more passes, and was way outside of the original search area when I got a real good signal in the head phones. I put the scoop in, shook it out, and there in the bottom was a cool looking custom gold ring. I reached in and held it up to Deena’s and her friend’s surprise. They had no idea that the ring would have gone so far to the left of where she had thrown the ball. Rest assured, we as Ring Finders know to look out of the box, because a lot of times rings seem to do the impossible. I was so glad to have made 3 wonderful smiles yesterday. A great time!

Wedding Ring Lost in Gravel .. Glendale, CA. .. Found

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

After receiving an email from James this morning asking if I could help him. I sent him a reply asking for him to call me. His email explained that he had only been married for one month and had already lost his wedding ring. He believed that it possibly came off while he was walking his dog. At one point his dog got in a skirmish with another dog. That was when he thinks it may have come off his finger, although he didn’t realize his ring was missing until 20 minutes later.

James could not get off work till after 7pm and it would be dark. His wife, Sarah could meet me at 3pm which was our best alternative. She wasn’t there when it happened but she did have a matching ring that helped me get an ID reading with my detector and she had good idea of the location. Both James and Sarah had searched for some time before I got to the location. They believed it may be in the 3/4”gravel ground cover used in the planters along the sidewalk.

As I scanned the planters, Sarah asked me a few questions about how the detector works. I remember telling her to keep her eyes open because I can’t get the detector into plants and difficult spots. After about 45 minutes I heard Sarah yell, “I found it” The gravel was a light gray color very easy to hide a silver colored ring. I had just past the place where she saw the slight glimmer of the silver colored ring. It was right up against a sprinkler head wedged in amongst the gravel. The sprinkler head definitely masking the signal of the smaller ring because it was a larger metallic target.

This is not the first time the ring was found by eyeballing (visual sighting ) while trying to use use the metal detector, but it will not be the last time. All is good because James and Sarah now have their original wedding ring back where it belongs. James agreed that he was getting it sized before he wears it again. Another great find and happy day for James and Sarah.

Bracelet Lost at Hermosa Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I was getting ready for dinner tonight when Manola called regarding a bracelet her daughter had lost while jumping off of a lifeguard tower at the beach. When she jumped it either came off when in the process of the jump or during the landing, but for sure it was gone in the sand. Manola, her daughter, and a friend had searched to no avail. They found my number and called, and I told her I would be there in 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got there, Manola met me, and walked me down to the area. She explained that this bracelet was given to her daughter recently by her grandmother, who had just passed away 2 weeks ago, so this recovery was very important. I used one of my best detectors, and was not able to find anything. The area was very clean of any metal, and I was not getting the bracelet, so I figured it was a very small chain which makes it very hard for most detectors to be able to detect. Fortunately, I had brought another detector that could be used to find the very small stuff, so I went back to the car to exchange detectors. When I turned on the new detector I was not finding very much but a couple of small pieces of trash metal. I made a another pass when I heard a faint sweet sound in the head phones. I gently put the scoop in and dumped the sand out. I then re scanned the pile and the sound was the same, so I scooped the pile again and gently shook it out, and there hanging out the holes in the bottom was a very fine gold chain bracelet. I was able to hand the bracelet back to Manola and her daughter, and I knew that this would be a great evening with wonderful happy smiles.

Surfer Loses Wedding Ring in Sand .. 1000 Steps Beach, South Laguna Beach, CA. .. Found and Returned

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

While searching for a wedding rings lost at Salt Creek Beach I received a call from Keoni. He was located at 1000 Steps Beach and had just discovered that his tungsten wedding ring had fallen out of his backpack. It had to be one of two places, as he had to move his belongings when the high surf came up on to the dry sand.

Keoni was late for an appointment and had to leave the beach. I told him that I knew the beach well and assured him I could get to the area of the loss with the directions he had given me. It was less than a mile from where I was when he called.

After a finding the first set of rings sooner than I thought, Drove to 1000 Steps Beach. It is only a couple hundred steps to the beach and going down is easy. Then I walked over to the location near the volleyball court where I used the photos that Keoni had texted me to start my grid. Picking a spot to start my grid, it took about 45 minutes to find Keoni’s ring.
The ring was found within two feet of where I started the grid search. It would have been just a few minutes if I had gone north instead of south.

I contacted Keoni and arranged to drop off his ring at his house as it was on my way home. He was very grateful for having his wedding ring returned. I think you can see by the smile in his photo.

Heirloom Diamond Wedding Rings Lost .. Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, CA. ..Recovered

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

This search was a surprise to me as well as Farimah and her husband, Ehsan. Farimah had called me early Sunday morning asking for help to find two heirloom wedding rings that were lost somewhere at Salt Creek Beach near Dana Point, CA. She was devastated because two years ago her original wedding rings were stolen when her home was burglarized. These replacement rings were family heirlooms that were given to her by her mother in law.

Her description of what happened before discovering her rings were missing sounded like it could take many hours to search the large area she had been. A large section where she had walked was hard packed wet beach with many people on the beach. If the rings fell off there, they would have probably been picked up by other people that often walk the beach searching for sea shells.

Discussing the events of the day, Farimah did not remember doing any activity that would cause her rings to slip from her finger. The best clues I had was that she did realize the rings were missing before she left the beach and her husband, Ehsan had found a bottle cap that was at exact area where they had set on the beach.

I started where they had spent the most time sitting on the beach, then the 50 yard section of dry sand towards the restroom. Next I went to the damp soft sand where her daughter had been playing in the sand with other family members. I was dreading the 8 – 10 blocks of hard wet sand that she had walked. Then, Boom !! A Big beautiful diamond ring in the scoop. Next signal less than a foot away was the wedding band. I called Farimah telling her I needed some help.

They had walked down the beach to get some snacks from the little restaurant. Farimah walked up to me and I surprised her by holding up the wedding ring. She exploded with joy and before she could get her breath I said, how about this one, showing her the beautiful engagement ring. She was speechless and gave me a big hug. We had time to pull off another surprise, as Ehsan was still coming from snack shack, unaware that the rings had been found. She walked up to him presenting him with her own surprise. It was beautiful day for all.

Farimah told me she could not believe that the ring was found in that location because she had spent less than 10 minutes there. Another bonus was several of the people on the beach were also able to witness the return and learn about TheRingFinders metal detecting service.

This search taught me to stay positive even if you know how impossible it may seem. If  you have lost any metallic valuable in a place where a metal detector can be used try to mark the general area. Call a member of TheRingFinders as soon as possible. ‘I WILL TRY ANYWHERE”

 

Angry Wife Throws Wedding Ring .. Anaheim, CA. .. Found in Grass

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

Bill called me Sunday evening asking me if I could help him find a diamond wedding ring lost in his backyard grass.
I told him I could come that night if he couldn’t wait till tomorrow. We agreed to meet early the next morning.

When I arrived we walked into the backyard, where there was a metal detector and two rakes that Bill had used to unsuccessfully search for the ring. He was frustrated that he couldn’t find it. When I asked how the ring was lost, he told me that his wife had actually thrown the ring in a moment of anger. I told him that this happens more than people know. It’s looking like one out 10 calls I get are rings that were thrown.

After setting up a grid search the ring was located deep in the 3 inches of grass completely out of site. It must have been stepped on while searching. Even raking the grass didn’t pull it up.

I think Bill was a little embarrassed that this had happened. I just consoled him that ” This Happens More than People Know”

It was a good feeling to help him find the ring.

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.

Platinum Wedding Ring Found in Grass .. Newport Beach, CA.

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

Nate called me reminding me that I had found his platinum wedding ring two weeks ago, when his wife Julie had dropped it in the sand. This time he had lost the same ring in their backyard possibly in the lawn. I was at his house within a half hour.

Nate was throwing a large beach ball to his son two days ago when he felt the platinum ring leave his finger. Several people spent two days searching the grass, but there were also some planters with wood chip ground cover that could hide it
and Nate thought it may have gone over the fence.

The grass area was the easiest to eliminate as a possible hiding place, so I started at one end of the 20ft. x 50ft lawn. Boom! The ring was hiding in the first few feet of my grid search. It was at the base of the grass and completely out of site because it was probably stepped on into the damp topsoil.

It was great to be able t help Nate find his ring one more time. He will be taking it back to get it resized.
