I was awakened this morning at 6:30 AM by a call from Jason, asking if I would be available to look for a lost ring. I began asking questions, and found out that the ring was lost the night before. It was his partner Angela’s ring. I then asked if the sand was smoothed out from the beach cleaning machines, and he told me that the machine did not go through the area they were in. I asked if he was sure, and he told me he was, because they had been on the beach through the night searching for the ring, he said it was very special to Angela. I asked, the whole night? He affirmed his statement, in which realizing it meant a lot to her, I jumped into my clothes, shaved and brushed my teeth, and was on my way.

When I got there Jason had me rouse Angela who had been resting in her car after a long hard night, and we walked out to where he was. I could see the sand of the whole beach smoothed over like a person dragged a 2×4 over the sand, and was a bit disheartened, until I got to where Jason was standing. I could see that the tractors were forced to go around the area in question, which gave me a vision of Jason facing down the County tractor like the lone man in Tiananmen Square facing down a tank. The area in question was not touched by the machines. It took about 5 minutes to find Angela’s ring which surprised them because they had spent so many hours looking for it. I found out that Angela’s late father, had designed and made the ring for her, and gave it to her before he passed away. I understood why she did not want to leave the site without her ring, it is priceless. She was so very happy and thankful, and I was happy to be able to help. What an awesome morning indeed!

Mark called me about the loss of his wedding ring. He was visiting with friends on the beach, and throwing a football around, when going for a catch, he felt his ring fly off. It had happened earlier that day, so the possibilities of a recovery were high. I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there, and left immediately.

When I got there Mark met me, and took me to the area of the loss. He showed me what had happened, and where he believed the ring may have gone. I began my grid, and worked my way in the direction of the possible loss. I worked out about 8 passes with no ring, and decided to start working in the opposite direction. After 2 passes I received a good tone in the headphones. I scooped the sand, and in my scoop was one of the coolest looking wedding rings I have recovered. Mark and his wife have had these identical custom rings for 25 years, so this loss had great sentimental implications. I was able to give Mark his ring back, which really made his day. We were standing around talking after the recovery, when the 7.1 earthquake hit Southern California, and we felt like we were rocking and rolling, which made this recovery a very memorable event!

Katelynn called me the other day about her lost ring. She had been at the beach for a volleyball tournament when in the process of hitting the ball her ring flew off into the sand, and disappeared. Her grandmother had given her the ring 3 years prior, and she wore it every day; it meant a lot to her. We arranged to meet after the tournament was over for the search, so as to not disrupt the games.

When I got to the area, Katelynn and her friends were waiting at the volley ball court. I asked a few questions, and she showed me where she had been and what she had done, so I began my search. The court was clean of all metal. I was getting no signals whatsoever. Then I got my first signal, a silver tone, one scoop, and in my basket was Katelynn’s ring. I pulled it out for her, and she was elated. I am sure she thought it was gone forever, and I was glad to reunite her with such a sentimental item. I know she slept well that night. Love those smiles!

Katelynn sent the following testimonial:

Good Morning Steve!

Wow, what an awesome post! I can’t thank you again for taking the time and for your efforts in finding my ring. It’s hard to put into words just how much it meant. It’s not often that a stranger is so willing to show such kindness and willingness to help someone they don’t know. My ring is like my security blanket. It’s something so small, but I have with me at all times. It’s been there through it all and the second it’s not on my hand, something feels ‘off’ It was a strange feeling taking it off this Sunday before beach Volleyball, as typically I wouldn’t do that, but after learning my lesson from the previous week, I think it’ll have to start sitting the bench for games haha. I would hate for you to have to come out again and find it…while i’m positive that you would be able to do so! I’m not sure that many people are aware that a service such as the one you provide, exists so i’ll continue to rave about the convenience and helpfulness that you so kindly had shown me. Feel free to clip an excerpt for above to use as a testimony. Should you need anything else from me, please do not hesitate to reach out. I can’t thank you again Steve and think you’re doing a wonderful thing!

Warm Regards,
Katelynn

I received a call from Jane today about a lost ring. She had been in her backyard throwing a ball to her dog, when making a throw her late husband’s ring that she wore daily, flew from her finger, and was gone. I asked a few questions, and we arranged to meet later in the afternoon to do the search.

When I got to Jane’s house, she took me to the backyard, and we talked about the loss. I asked her to reenact the throw, and then began a search in the direction of where the ball had flown. I went over the grass, checked all the flower pots, checked and shook all the bushes, under the bushes, and out to the fence; no ring. I then went over the yard once more to insure I had covered all areas, no ring. I asked if she had a ladder, and checked up on the garage roof, no ring. Jane had resolved to find the ring whenever it showed up, but I really wanted to know why we were not able to find it, so we went back behind where she had been standing, and looked on her gravel patio. I told her a story about how rings are not usually where you think they are, so we began to look around the patio. I just got finished saying that if it was here, that it would be in plain sight. I turned right looked down on the gravel, and there it was. I let out a whoop letting her know I had found it. It had come off of her left hand, and flown  15 behind and to her right about another 10 feet; amazing! Jane was so happy! This ring is something she wears to keep her husbands memory close to her all the time.

Jane sent the following testimonial:

You made my day & am truly grateful

Eric called today about his wedding band he had lost in his backyard over the Memorial weekend, during a grilling session. He went to wipe his hands off in the grass, when while swiping them his ring went flying. He and his family searched for a couple of hours without any luck. After a few questions, I agreed to do the search. He was going to be at work, so we arranged to have me meet with his wife Anna at the house later in the day.

When I arrived, Anna met me at the backyard gate, and took me back to the site of the loss. She showed me approximately what happened. From what it looked like, the ring should not have gone far, but having done these searches over the years, I have found that these rings sometimes go in the least expected of places. I searched the area where I expected the ring would have gone first, no luck. I then began a search over all the rest of the yard, and on the last pass, all the way on the other side of the yard, further back than it should have been, I found Eric’s ring. Rings are kind of like weird people; they just do their own thing. It was a pure pleasure to be able to hand Anna her husband’s ring, that they thought was lost for good. Truly a great day!

Eric sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

You are a great guy with a great calling in life! My lost ring in my backyard was probably a run-of-the-mill search and find for you, but I had been wearing it for over 20 years. I had been doing yard work the previous day and within minutes of it falling off my finger (still don’t know how it happened), I realized my finger was bare. But me finding you was a bigger part of the story. We looked for it all evening until it got too dark. The next day, I had to go to work. I told my co-workers that I had lost my ring the previous day, and the general consensus was that I would need to buy a replacement. I’m surrounded by co-workers wearing replacements. A couple of them had heard of your website. So I gave it a try. I think I called you around 11:00 in the morning, let you know my wife would be home by 3:30, and you were there by 4:00. I shared your emails and txts with my work mates so they were all along for the ride. – Ring found within a few minutes in a part of the yard that I didn’t think it would be in. “It’s never where you think it is” I believe you told my wife. Anyhow, I had to run around the office saying “Steve found it!” It was a nice touch to a stressful day.

Thanks again and best wishes in all your future searches!

Cinda called me today in the afternoon. She had been helping with a fundraising fair that was being put on by her children’s school. She had been in charge of the decorations, and like most people who volunteer, working hard to make the day a success. During the time she had been putting up some of the decorations she noticed to her disbelief that the center stone in her engagement ring was gone; a diamond at about 2 1/2 karats. The only thing that was in her favor was the fact that it was in a metal setting, even though it was no more than a stud earring, which are so very hard for a detector to find, because there is such a small amount of metal attached to it. She and her friends scoured the field where she had been working, and the areas she had concentrated on, but to no avail. She wanted to wait until the fair was over to begin the search, and I agreed to meet her then for the search.

When I got to the field, Cinda’s husband Mark met me, and took me up to meet Cinda. She showed me the field, and my heart dropped, it was huge, and the grass was pretty thick. Also I knew that I was going to have to check every signal which would slow me down considerably. I then began an inquiry to narrow down the search area if it was possible. Cinda believed that the best possible spot to begin the search was an area about 10×10 feet based on her friends best recollections regarding when they saw the stone in her ring, so I began there. I was getting signals, but they were all too deep to be her diamond. During my second pass, and after about 12 signals checked, I got another soft signal, and put the pin pointer in to check when it sounded off, and I could see the glimmer of the stone. I reached in, picked it up, and then looked for Cinda. She was working with people during the take down of the fair, so I began walking over. She had her back to me, but some of the ladies there realized I was going to her, and figured I might have found it. I showed them the stone, and then there was instant joyous chaos, everybody shouting, running around that the diamond was found. When Cinda realized what was going on she turned and came right over, and I put the jewel in her hand. She got very emotional, she had had that ring for 26 years, and it had great sentimental value to her. All I can say is, WHAT A BLAST! I was so happy help her out today.

Paul called explaining that he had lost his ring while pulling weeds in the yard. With the recent rains the grass had grown rapidly along with the weeds. As he threw a clump of weeds his custom ring that he had purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York City flew off of his finger into the tall grass. He began to strip the grass down to the ground in the area he thought the ring may have landed, but was not able to find it. Thinking it may have flown farther, and down a highly vegetated hillside, he sought more professional help. Paul found me on the Ring Finders web site and called, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to Paul’s house, he showed me the area where he was working, and the hand motion that caused the loss. I noticed that the grass had been stripped down to the dirt almost, so anything like his ring would be there in sight, but I ran my coil over the whole area nun the less. Finding nothing there, I began on the hillside that started on the edge of the small yard. I worked my way down the hillside slowly searching every inch of the ground; NOTHING! I looked at Paul asking if there was anything else that could have happened, and he assured me the loss occurred exactly as he explained, so I went back up to the original area. It was then I noticed the pile of grass that Paul had removed from the area of the loss, and began my search in the pile. After a few passes, I got the signal I was looking for, moved the grass around and there it was. I held the ring up, and Paul came running over. He was so surprised that it was in the pile he had set aside, but so very happy it had been found. I know that I made his day!

Diamond Engagement Ring Lost in Barnyard .. Costa Mesa, CA. .. Found in Muddy Grass

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

Casey called me asking if I could help her friend find a ring that was possibly lost in a stable area on a small ranch property. I told her could be there in 30 minutes.
She sent me a address where I could meet her friend Michelle. This property is a small ranch in Costa Mesa, CA., that has stables set up for 4-H projects. Michelle and other parents were helping clean up stalls and pens for goats and chicken projects.
She had taken her 14 year old engagement ring off putting it in he back pant pocket so she could put on gloves. A couple times during the day she also put her gloves in the same pocket. Her thought was that the ring came out when she removed the gloves from her pocket. Where and when was the question? Michelle even told me she was worried that one of the goats could have eaten the ring. I told her to stop this thought, we had to first eliminate all the dirt and grassy areas the ring could be hiding.
I did a warm up lap on a dirt area before proceeding to the most likely location which were the stalls. As I walked the wet grass towards the stalls, I got a nice low tone that was worth bending over to check. Put my pinpointer into the grass and spotted the back edge of the beautiful diamond white gold/platinum ring.
It was one of those easy searches but it could have taken much longer. She had been all over the property that morning.
If it were not for Michelle’s friend Casey, helping to set this up this could have gone another direction. It could have been a very miserable night at the least, if we didn’t on top of this right away. Michelle and Her husband Mark expressed how grateful they were and thanked me for helping them.

Platinum Diamond Wedding Ring Lost .. Newport Beach, CA. .. Found Five Months Later in Wet Sand.

Newport Beach 19th Street Ring .. Lost August 2016,
found Dec. 31, 2016

I bought myself a new XP Deus metal detector that can be used to find small metallic items. Even though I have been using metal detectors for years, it does take practice to learn to set up and feel confident with a new machine.
It was the last day of 2016 at Newport Beach, when I was testing my settings in wet sand. The light rain was making it difficult to stay focused. Just before stopping for the day I got a nice signal. It turned out to be a platinum wedding ring with 14 diamonds in the bottom of my scoop. Not bad for the first good ring with my XP Deus detector.
The next day, I remembered a ring search I did last summer. I went to my list of past searches locating Robbie and Francisca’s Celphone number. I texted them that I found a ring that could be theirs. He sent me a photo of the lost ring that matched the ring I had found.
Another Miracle find, five months after Francisca lost the ring. Last August she had been on the beach with her grandson playing in the sand in and out of the water. She wasn’t sure if the ring had fallen off in the house, on the beach or the two block walk to the beach. After 6 hours of a thorough grid search I could not find the ring.
We will never know where the ring was hiding, it could have been on edge or too deep to detect. What is amazing, is this ring escaped many other metal detectors because it was just 100 yards south of the Newport Pier, heavily hunted by many detectorists. I did check the ring using my CTX 3030 and it had no problem getting a good solid signal flat and on edge.
The most important thing is the ring is back where it belongs. Another successful return even though it took some time.

Engagement Ring Lost in Backyard … Compton, CA. … Found in Sandy Soil

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

Dustin called asking me if I was available to search his back yard. His wife Candy had dropped her wedding ring set in the sandy back yard. They had actually found the smaller rose gold wedding band, but after three days the engagement ring was not to be found.
After arriving at their house, I was able to see what the search area looked like. Got real excited until I turned on my CTX 3030 metal detector. There was lots of metal trash which could mask a signal of a small rose gold ring. Small 20’x 20′ area. I did a quick grid with my stock 11″ coil with no results. I changed to a smaller 6″ coil. Many many signals, but swinging very slowly on a third grid I caught a short low tone mixed with other high tones. Looked down catching a glimpse of the band actually vertical in the sand. The diamond setting was down in the dirt. Bingo! Ring found.
It did take about an hour but Candy and Dustin were surprised and gratefully thanked me with sincerity. It was a pleasure to help them.
