Julie called me an hour after losing her ring at Long Beach, CA. I only asked her if the ring was lost in the dry sand or wet sand and to text me the nearest address. 

When we met on the beach she was with John at an unoccupied lifeguard tower. She told me that they had climbed up the steps on the tower to the platform. When she got to the top, she brushed some sand off her leg and the ring flew off her finger. Both Julie and John heard the ring hit the deck but could not determine the direction it went.

I was a little overconfident that it would be a quick recovery. My first obstacle was many metal trash targets. My first grid of the small area was a rapid scan listening for a low gold tone. Next grid of scan was slow digging and removing every metal target. ”No Ring”. I knew that it was possible for the ring to be hiding close to the metal legs of the lifeguard tower but I was holding off on searching near the metal legs till later. 

Before getting on my hands and knees to use my handheld pinpointer. I used my sand scoop to move sand away from the metal legs where my detector had a chance to find a ring without being masked by the metal support legs. 

After one hour, the third grid of the area was successful. The ring was found within 18” of the metal tower supports. I’m sure that I moved it out far enough for the detector to separate it from the larger metal. Although it is possible that I may have just missed it the first times, the main thing is the ring was recovered. It always rewarding to see how happy John and Julie were to have the ring back. It was very sentimental to both of them.

Tim and his wife were at Venice Beach, CA.  for the day and walking off the beach to their car. When he put some trash in the trash can . Tim felt his gold wedding ring slip off his finger as he pulled his hand away. The ring fell into the sand disappearing immediately.

I received a call about 11:30 pm as I was driving home late that night. Tim apologized for calling that late, but I was totally ok with the call. It allowed us to set up a search time for the next morning when he could be there to show me the general location.

We met at a time that allowed us to evade the morning traffic rush. The area of the loss wasn’t in a location that the beach cleaning machines would have been a problem. 

When we met there was another obstacle. There was a movie crew set up exactly where we were going to search. The crew said it would be alright to do my search as I assured them it would be a short time.

I began my grid search and immediately had one 3’ x 3’ area that seemed to have a cement with rebar under 6’” under the sand. The metal detector could not work well with that interference. It might require hand sifting with my sand scoop. You never know what challenges can come up until getting to the search location. 

Just before having to resort to hand sifting the area that had metallic interference, I got a decent signal up against a wood piling in the sand. Boom!.. Tim’s ring in the scoop. About 8 0r 10 members of the movie crew witnessed the recovery, which gave me a chance to tell them about TheRingFinders.com.

Another fun recovery which, wasn’t as simple as I thought it might be. It was awesome to see how happy an grateful Tim and his wife were as they have this ring back where it belongs.

While I was on my way to meet with Gibreel in the previous post for the lost iPhone, I received a call from Bryan who had lost his wedding ring just about an hour before. It sounded like a good possibility of a recovery, so I let him know that I had a search to do before I could get out to where he was to do their search, but that I would be there. He was fine with the arrangement, because he had something he had to do in the mean time. I found the iPhone, and was on my way to Bryan.

Traffic was good, and I was able to get to the beach at the arranged meeting time. What had happened, was that Bryan and his wife were on the beach enjoying the evening, when it started to rain. They hurried to gather up all of their belongings to not let them get wet, when during the process Bryan flicked his hand, and his ring was instantly gone. They searched for about an hour before they decided to look for someone to help them. I am glad I was available and close. When I got there they showed me the area, and I could see that they had performed a good tight grid in the sand during their search. He showed me where he thought the ring might have flown because of the motion of his hand, so that is where I began my search. The ring was not there, and I kept the grid going. After a few passes I entered the middle of their grid area when I got a good signal, and let them know I believed I had found the ring. After scooping out the sand, I scooped once more into the dumped out sand, and inside was Bryan’s ring. I got a big hug from his wife and a hearty handshake from Bryan. They had only been married for 8 months, so the ring had a pronounced sentimentality for them. What a great ending of the day!

Laura was at Huntington State Beach with her family all day Sunday. She believed that her Rose Gold Diamond engagement ring fell in the sand when she removed her sweater from her beach bag. Late Wednesday night she found TheRingFinders website while researching metal detectors on line.

It was almost midnight when she sent me an email. She was asking if I could help her. It was 9 am Thursday morning when I read and replied to her email, asking her to call me ASAP. Emails are nice but it was another couple hours till we were able to set up a meeting on the beach. 

We were lucky that it wasn’t Huntington City Beach which has very efficient beach sifting equipment. Also this time of year there is always a chance that recreational detectorist may have found it, not knowing who to return it to.

As we walked towards the fire pits where the ring was lost. I tried not to tell Laura about the negative possibilities that could hamper our search. Laura showed me the first of two places it could be. Setting up my detector, I took a couple practice swings. Beginning my grid I got nice solid signal that didn’t quite sound like gold. After scooping the target, I could see the rose gold engagement ring in the scoop. Rose gold is a composite of metals that gives a little different ID reading than other precious metals. 

Laura lit up like a light when she saw it in the scoop. She gave me a big smile for the photo as you can see. We walked back to our cars and she was full of joy all the way there. She had four miserable days worrying that her ring was gone forever. Now the ring was back where it belongs. It was definitely a pleasure to help her, it never gets old doing this. Thanks for TheRingFinders website and the internet.

Last Sunday I got a call from a young lady who had taken her 3 rings (2 18K, and 1 platinum) off at the beach, and placed them on her towel. When she and her friends went to leave they picked up everything and walked off, forgetting the rings were on the towel. They went back and searched desperately for her rings after realizing what had happened, but could not find them. They called me about 6:00 PM to see if I could do a search for them. I said I would be happy to, and told them when I could be there, but they decided to search some more, before having me come out. Well they did not call me out for the search until about 8:30 PM, and I left right away.

I got to the area about 9:30 PM, but was unable to get parking because the streets shut down at 10:00 PM, so I had to park about 1 mile North and walk back. I got to the area shown by the directions they had given me, and started my search; it was just me and the beach at that time of night. By 11:00 I had her rings in my hand, and was able to text her of a successful hunt. We got together yesterday for the ring return, and she was very happy to have her rings back, one of which had been her mother’s. A great hunt!

Mari called me asking for help to find her husband’s gold wedding ring lost in the yard while clearing debris from drainage gutters. Her husband, Ali didn’t feel the ring come off his finger. His hands were cold and wet. It had to come off while digging in the wet mud of the planter.

The next day Ali tediously removed all the wood chip ground cover looking for a glimmer of gold color. Then he sifted through a lot of the muddy soil. They called several stores trying to find a metal detector in stock. Then that afternoon they went to a local home depot tool rental store. Someone there told them about TheRingFinders. Ali called me, telling me the story. 

I was not sure what conditions I would have to deal with and it looked like it might be raining. I brought rain gear just in case. We were lucky that the rain had just let up when I met Ali that morning. He showed me where he had searched. It took a few minutes to set up my detector because there was some electrical interference near the house. 

The area was less than 20’x20’. I began swinging my coil over most the area hearing several potential targets without checking them. When swinging up under a small palm tree a stronger tone and good number ID came up on my metal detector. Ali was standing next to me with a small garden shovel in his hand. I ask him to dig that spot. He only pushed the hand shovel 3” on the damp mud then when he dumped it the gold ring popped out. Both of us were surprised, it was only a few minutes and it was our first target. The right tool for the right job.

I never get tired of doing this, even though there are times when the lost item may not be in the location where it was thought to be lost. You can’t find it if it isn’t there.

Steven was fishing in the surf at Long Beach, CA. His hand got hung up in his fishing line and his ring came off his finger flying into the dry sand. After two hours of searching the sand with his hands, he did a google search for metal detector service. That was how he found my contact information.

When I talked to Steven I was sure that the ring could be found if he could meet me at the location. He was concerned that the tide was rising and it would soon be under water. I assured him that would not be a problem as I would be there within an hour. Even if it was in the water we still can find it. The most important factor is that he can be there to put me in the general location. Sometimes people leave the area and can’t get back to the location, especially on the beach.

When I walked out to meet Steven, he was a little frustrated as he and his friend had been sifting through the sand with their hands for a couple hours. He showed me what had happened when he felt his ring fly off his finger. 

I set up my metal detector, beginning a short 15 ft. grid pattern. I got a nice signal on my third pass which turned out to be Steven’s platinum wedding band. He was ecstatic and surprised that it was more than 10 ft. from where he thought it would be. As usual he couldn’t believe how fast it was found. It has a lot to do with timing, also having the right tool (metal detector) for the right job.

I love being able to help people find things that are so important to them. .. I WILL TRY ANYWHERE

I received a call from James, who had lost a hearing aid in his yard when bees attacked him as he was doing yard work. He had rented metal detector and it was not able get signal from his other hearing aid. 

I was only a half hour from his home in Sherman Oaks which is part of the Los Angeles suburbs. We met and he was concerned that the bees may hamper my ability to search the hillside landscape. I was just happy that my high frequency metal detector could get a decent signal from an identical hearing aid.

The hillside was steep and was fairly free of vegetation. It was possible to search about 35 feet from the underground bees (wasps) nest without arousing them. After about a half hour with a few signals from pieces of wire and nails, I got a signal that turned out to be the missing hearing aid. 

I used a XP Deus metal detector with a 74 kHz high frequency coil that has been awesome for finding small gold and platinum stud earrings. It was a fun hunt and pleasure to help James find such an important item that he desperately missed after three days without his hearing aid.

If you lose a ring or other important metal item call ASAP .. “I WILL TRY ANYWHERE”

Lauren’s parents had passed down their wedding rings to Lauren to be used for her marriage next week. The unique gold ring that her father had worn for over 35 years was lost three hours after they gave them to her. Lauren had put both rings on her fingers till she could put them in a safe place. 

She was at her new home that was in the process of being remodeled when her whole day turned into panic. Her project for the day was to organize some of the boxes stored in the garage. Also, unpack a few of the boxes of items to go into kitchen cupboards. We also had an area of the front yard where she had removed some weeds.

Timing was important because Lauren was able to recall most of the places she had been. We did a quick grid of the front yard where I could use my big metal detector. Then the kitchen area boxes and wrapping where I could use the handheld pinpointer metal detector. Last place was the garage that had 30 or 40 boxes plus the floor area around them. Starting at one side, we opened each box and it was helpful that Lauren could remember the boxes she didn’t open. 

The ring showed up in a box of halloween decorations that she had searched without success before calling me. It was great to see how happy she was and the look of relief on her face. We definitely saved many hours of grief if it wasn’t found. It could have been next Halloween till she opened this box again. I was kind of hopeful that the ring would show up inside one of the boxes as this has been the action in past searches that caused rings to slip from fingers.

Platinum Wedding Ring Lost in Sand at Santa Monica Beach .. Recovered

Kim and Alex were visiting Santa Monica beach while on vacation from New Jersey. Alex handed his wedding ring to Kim to hold so he could do a short workout on the athletic rings. Shortly after that she dropped the platinum wedding band in the sand. It disappeared immediately and their attempts to find it were unsuccessful.

Alex had tried to ask some of the local businesses if there was any place to rent a metal detector. Someone told him to google search TheRingFinders.com .  I was in my car on the freeway when I got the call from Alex. After hearing what had happened, I asked if they could stay at the location and assured him that we could find it if they could stay there. I was able to get there 45 minutes later and found a parking less than a block away. ( that’s a miracle).

The rest of the story was simple. Timing and the fact they could stay at the location made it easy to find the ring. It took me longer to turn on and setup my detector than it did to actually find the ring. Losing a ring in the sand can be frustrating if you don’t have the right tool to find it. Also there are search areas can be littered with other metal trash. I have done searches where a dozen  people have spent hours searching with sifting tools and cheap detectors and couldn’t find the lost ring. I’m sure there are many times when people walk away thinking it was lost forever. They don’t know that TheRingFinders is a world wide directory of metal detector specialists with experience finding and returning sentimental keepsakes.

Alex told me the wedding ring was special to him because  it was made by his father who is a jeweler and he has worn it daily since his marriage.
