Lost Ring In Surf at Laguna Beach .. Found

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

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.

Lost Ring .. White Gold with Diamonds .. Downey, CA. .. Found in Tot Lot

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

Amber called me after Sharon found TheRingFinders website. Her first question was to ask about how the service works? Her concern was, that she wasn’t sure where her,white gold with diamonds,ring was lost. Amber and Sharon had been several places including a sandy totlot and Chucky Cheese amusement center in Downey, CA. Amber noticed the ring missing that evening after several hours away from the house.

Amber thought it was probably lost at the Chucky Cheese business which would not leave much hope to find it. Sharon believed that the ring was at the totlot in the sand. After hearing the list of events and knowing that Amber had not felt ring slip off. It was now just a matter of eliminating the sandy totlot before some other detectorist found it.

I was out of town but told Amber that I could be at the location before 4pm. She agreed to meet me at the location as I had told her, our chances of finding the ring are better if she can narrow the search area. Both Amber and Sharon were there when I started the search, I could tell Amber had not much hope of finding the ring. She had to leave for a few minutes, so Sharon was there when I found the ring near the children’s slide. When I held up the ring, Sharon broke out with a giant smile and her eyes lit up. Then we waited for Amber to show up. That’s when we were able to make it a second surprise moment. As we walked up to her, I asked her if she had been near the swings. As she was answering me Sharon held the beautiful gold w/ diamond ring up for Amber to see. Surprise, another big smile from Amber.  Sharon was right about the location.

They were so nice and appreciative. I enjoyed helping them and it was worth the extra drive to have a successful search.

Sunday of Labor Day weekend, I was sitting near the office at the Newport Dunes RV Resort. Mike called asking if I could help him find his Platinum / White Gold wedding ring lost in dry sand. I asked him where he was located. He told me he was at the Newport Dunes on the beach. Couldn’t believe that I was less than 50 yards away. I walked over to talk to him, but had to go a couple blocks to get my detector.

When I returned Mike told me that he had put 3 rings in the cupholder of the beach chair and they fell out when picked up the chair. He found two of the rings but this one wouldn’t let him find it. The area was well marked off, so began a small grid search. Actually, I missed it on my first grid. It showed up in the scoop after I did a cross grid and it was a very scratchy signal, possibly because of the two different metals. The ring is mostly platinum with white gold filigree inlaid. I didn’t have time to re-scan the ring with my detector to learn why it was such an iffy signal. Possibly the ring was vertical in the sand which coming in from the other direction may have helped the signal? No time to play around we had photos to take for the book of smiles.

It was a good short search with smiles everywhere and Mike was grateful to have his wedding ring of 20 years back on his finger. I still can’t believe how close I was when he called.

Wedding Ring .. Zirconium Rose Gold with Black Diamonds .. Lost in Shrubbery at Cliff Restaurant .. Laguna Beach, CA.

Vip and Krishna are from the San Francisco Bay Area. They are visiting Laguna Beach on their vacation. While having lunch at the Cliff Restaurant, Vip’s Zirconium/ Rose Gold w/ black diamonds wedding band slipped off his finger falling into some dense Bougainvillea shrubbery. ( this plant has vicious thorns )

The staff at the restaurant helped him look for it and somebody suggested that he try to get a metal detector. Vip google searched metal detector and my name came up in TheRingFinders website. After calling me, I met them about 45 minutes after they called. The restaurant had one of the waitresses escort me to the lower deck where I could get behind the thick growth. I was hoping that the ring did not hang up in the dense upper growth. At ground level I couldn’t use my normal detector, even with a small sniper coil. Lots of obstacles and small metal trash.

I proceeded using a Garrett handheld pinpointer. After pulling out salt shaker tops, forks, bottle caps, etc., I reached under the Bougainvillea plants to pull out the dead leaves so I can scan them with the small pinpointer detector. While moving these dead leaves, I pulled the ring into an area that the waitress saw it as I began to detect the leaves.

There it is yelled the waitress! Many times one of the people helping finds the item while I’m searching. It doesn’t matter who finds it. It was just nice to see the smiles on Vip and Krishna’s faces, this is their first year of marriage and this ring very important to both them. Also losing a ring on vacation doesn’t make a good memory. Now they have a great story to add to this vacation.

It was a very ugly area to loose a ring you can see the area of the loss in the background of the photo. I was having second thoughts about how much time it would take to find this ring. Nevertheless it all worked out well with a successful find and smiles all around.
