I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!

Yuxi called last night, she had lost her engagement ring while cleaning the sand off of her belongings. She said she would wait at the beach, and I told her I would be on my way immediately. She sent me a text with the area she was at, and I knew the parking lot was closed for the night, so I would have to park pretty far from the area.

When I got to the beach, being Friday night at a very popular beach, I had to park over 1 mile away. Fortunately I have a Segway MiniPro, so I grabbed my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and headed down the bike path with my headlight turned on. When I got to the spot, I saw Yuxi looking at her phone and asked if she was waiting for someone to help find her ring, and she said she was. I must have been a sight to her, 6 foot standing another 6 inches taller on a moving platform with all my equipment, lights and all. She took me over to the area, and showed me where she thought it was lost, Which was maybe 8 x8 feet square (not very large). I could see a bunch of sand that had been scraped out, and a slight hole, so I started there. The ring was not there. I made another pass, and got a good signal outside of the dug out spot, put the scoop in, and found Yuxi’s ring. She was very happy. She and her fiancé Chenglong have matching engagement rings, so it would have been very disappointing for her to lose hers. I got some pictures, and we talked a while, they were so happy! I then hopped back on my Segway for my trek back down the bike path to my car, a very joyful evening indeed!

I was sitting at home when I received a call from David, he said that he had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier and wondered if I could come to find it for him. The ring had been left with their belongings on the towel, when, then his wife Maria picked up something on the towel and the ring was swallowed up by the sand. He said he and his wife had not moved from the area of the loss, and would remain there until I came. It seemed as though they were doing everything right to enable me to help them, so I decided to grab my equipment and go right away.

Traffic was on my side and I got there a little sooner than I thought I would. It was after dark now so we needed to coordinate via phone in order to get together. David found me on the bike path, and walked me over to the area. They had left their towel exactly where they had been sitting, so I was encouraged for a recovery. One pass, one bottle cap, and then a good signal, one more scoop, and there was the ring in the bottom of my scoop. I forgot my headlamp in my vehicle, so it made it a little difficult locating the ring in the scoop, but once found I was able to hand it back to David who told me they had been married for 2 1/2 years. Dave and Maria could sleep well last night. It is always great to see the smiles after a successful recovery!

Saturday morning I received a desperate email from Katie. She had lost her gold coin ring in the water at the beach. She really wanted to know what the possibilities were of finding it, and if I would be willing to go. Her words in the email were, “This ring is the most valuable thing I own holding sentimental value beyond comparison to anything else. It means more to me than any object I have.” Her mother had made identical rings for her and her sister from her grandfather’s coin collection. I asked if she could meet me there immediately because it was low tide, and good for a possibility of a recovery. She was at work and not able to go, but did agree to send me pictures of the area of the loss. I got her pictures, knew the spot, and decided to right away.

When I got there the beach was full of people in and out of the water, but I was able to work a slow grid in and out of the crowd fighting the waves trying to be as thorough as possible. After 2 hours I decided to call it a day as the tide was coming in making it a more difficult search. I sent a text to Katie letting her know the outcome of my search, but I told her I would go back to try again if she would meet me there at the next low tide about 9:00 PM. She agreed to meet me, so I got down to the spot at about 9:15 PM. I had my wetsuit on to get wet so I did not have my phone with me. I looked around and no one came over, so I decided to begin another search when while I was out in the water a gentleman (Katie’s boyfriend) came out into the water to ask if I was here to find a ring for someone. I said I was and walked out to meet Katie who then told me she had given me the wrong site to search earlier. She had checked her landmarks, and realized her mistake, the actual spot was about 600 feet north of where my original search took place.

I began a new search in and out of the water working in the direction she showed me. After about an hour of searching I received a real good signal in the headphones. It took a couple of scoops and a little shaking of the sand when I saw the gold and the roundness of the coin implant in the ring, when I let out a whoop in the darkness (it was about 10:10 PM). Katie and her boyfriend came running over, and I held out my hand to Katie with her ring in it. When she saw the ring she gave me one of the strongest hugs ever, and was so overjoyed at having it back. It is truly a wonder to see the incredible joy restored when a recovery is made. I really enjoy this service of bringing smiles back to people who thought that what they lost, was gone forever.

Katie sent the following testimonial:

I contacted Steve because I lost one of my most important possessions in the Pacific Ocean, on one of the largest beaches in Orange County. As I was swimming my fingers shrank from the cold and suddenly I felt my ring slip off my finger into oblivion. I tried to catch it but I couldn’t, and neither could my boyfriend who was near me. We searched forever in the surf and the through the sand however we knew it was useless. With complete devastation I went home. That ring was a family heirloom and I lost it. I actually dreamt about it that night and woke up with the simple idea of googling “how to find a ring lost in the ocean?” And Ring Finders came up. I found Steve and was very impressed by his bio and finding record. So I sent him an email where he responded within 10 minutes. Then we spoke on the phone where he asked where I was, what time, how far out I was, how tall I am, the works. He knew high tides and low tides and the perfect times to search. I showed him the location where I lost it on a map via screenshots and by 10:30-11am he was already there at Hunting Beach looking for it. Around 2 he texted me to let me know so far no luck but he will continue after high tide has gone down and asked if I could meet him there after I get off work. I would up arriving around 9pm only to discover that I had circled the wrong spot on the map and Steve had been searching in the wrong spot. However he didn’t seem the least bit annoyed and after we found the correct spot it did not take him more than 45 minutes to find my ring. Steve has the entire set up, he was out there with a wet suit and all. I trust this man could find the Holy Grail. I simply could not believe that he has actually found my ring! He was amazing and so nice! And after everything was found and photos were taken I was shocked to learn that now at around 10pm he was on his way to another search. Steve is incredible and I highly recommend him. He is determined and trustworthy.

Special shout out to Mike from RingFinders, who happened to also be searching on the beach that night and after letting him in on what we were looking for he too offered to help. So kind!

While out on the beach doing the night search for the lost wedding band I got a desperate call from Josh. He had thrown his car key and remote off of his apartment balcony into the ivy and bushes, and was unable to find them. I let him know that I would come over as soon as I finished my search for the ring.

I finished my ring search about 10:00 PM, and arrived at Josh’s house about 10:30 PM. He explained what he did and showed me the area. There was not only ivy, but bougainvillea as well, two forms of shrubbery that can hide things well. I put on my headlight, and grabbed my detector and pin pointer and began my search. I found a number of metal items such as cans and bottle caps. I continued my search a little out of the initial area, and found the car key. Josh was surprised and very happy. I continued the search for the remote doing battle with the bougainvillea, but I was losing the battle with blood dripping from my arms from the wicked thorns that were hard to see at night, so I told Josh that I would come the next day when the sun was up to do a more thorough search for the remote. I got there today and asked Josh to recreate the actions he took the previous night. It looked as though the remote was going to be in one of the bushes. I was able to get my detector coil under the bushes, and under one of the bougainvillea got a real good signal. I put the pin pointer under the bush being careful of the thorns, and deep in the bush was the remote. Josh was overjoyed to get his key and remote back, and I was happy to have made his day.

I received a desperate call from David. He had gone to the beach for the day, and when he decided to go in the water, he buried his keys in the sand so no one could find them. The problem was that when he was ready to leave, he moved his towel, and then forgot where the keys had been buried. He called his father who found me on the Ring Finders site, and told his son to give me a call. I told him I would come right away.

When I arrived David and I found each other, and he took me to the spot where he had been during the day. He showed me where he had been, and I could see where he had been digging in the sand, so that is where I began my search. The keys were not in that area, so I began to expand the search. I was finding a few metal items such as bottle caps and foil, but not the key. I continued working back away from his original spot, and then all of a sudden a real nice signal in the headphones. I scooped, and there were his keys, about 15 feet from where he thought they were. I was glad to have been able to help him out.

Payton and his wife, Madeline were at a local beach in San Clemente, CA. Madeline forgot to leave her rings at home, so she put the three rings in the zippered pocket of her beach chair.

As they were leaving Madeline remembered her rings when they were about 30 feet from where they had been sitting on the sand. She went to get her rings out of the pocket that was partially closed. Only two of the rings were there. The smallest gold ring had somehow fallen out. After not being able to find it in the sand they returned home not far from the beach.

Payton got on the internet and contacted me using TheRingFinders directory. I met him on the road above the beach entrance. When we walked to the beach, a lady walking towards us, ran up to me yelling RingFinder man. She gave me a big hug and told her friends that I had found her wedding ring a few months ago. I know it surprised Payton, he didn’t know me and wasn’t quite sure if my metal detector could find his wife’s small gold ring. 

When we got to the area of the loss there was two other people sitting there. I choose not to ask them to move but asked them if I could swing my detector close to them. Boom! within a few inches of the lady’s feet I got a nice tone from my detector and I dug the small gold ring as Payton watched. 

Another successful recovery and Payton immediately took a photo sent it to Madeline. We had only been on the beach a short time but the walk back to our cars was much more enjoyable than going to the location of the loss. It was a pleasure to help them find a ring that had so much sentimental meaning to both Madeline and Payton.

I was at the dentist this morning (always a pleasurable occasion:-0). When I got out, I noticed that I had received a call. I called the number back and talked to Walt. He had lost his wedding ring on the beach earlier in the morning. Time is always the enemy of a recovery, and because this had happened today, I told him I would be on my way as soon as I picked up my equipment at home.

When I got to the beach Walt met me and walked me out to the spot of the loss. He told me how he had put his ring in his back pocket, and when removing something from the pocket the ring must have flipped out into the sand. I began my grid, going over the possible area of the loss, and then expanded it out with no luck. Walt and his friends had moved their towels to give me access to more area expanding my search, but no luck. I did a cross grid over the whole area just in case the ring was on edge and turned, but no luck. We talked, and I let Walt know that the ring was not in the searched area. He felt I had searched all of the area he thought the ring would have landed, but I asked him to move the towels back, and I would go over the area they had moved their belongings to although it was way outside of the possible area of the loss. As I completed the first pass, I got a good signal, dug, and had Walt’s ring in my scoop. I held it up to his total surprise, he could not believe it had landed in that spot, so far from where he thought originally, no way. An awesome recovery!

Kevin called last night asking for help in finding his wedding ring. He was playing football in the sand on the beach, when his friend threw the ball to him. As he went to catch the ball, the ball hit his left hand knocking his wedding ring off of his finger. The loss had happened just a little while earlier, and he knew the spot where it happened, so it sounded like a real good possibility of a recovery. I told him I was on my way.

When I got there Kevin met me, and took me to the area of the loss. We talked about it, and he explained and showed me what had happened. He showed me where he figured the ring would have landed. I then let him know that things don’t always happen as we think they do, but sometimes the forces that cause the loss often make a ring go into a direction we would not normally think. I figured on doing a complete grid of the area, and set to start back away from where Kevin had originally thought; 1, 2 , 3 swings boom, a good solid tone in the headphones, one scoop, and I had Kevin’s ring in my hand to his surprise. He was overjoyed, and was able to reunite with his friends. What a great evening!

Kevin sent the following testimonial:

Steve,

Thank you once again for coming down to the beach on such short notice to help me find my ring. I truly appreciate your help. The review I wrote up is below:

“When I lost my wedding ring on the beach and my friends and I spent 45 min rooting through the sand for it unsuccessfully, I thought it was lost for good. Thankfully I found Steve at theringfinders.com and he was able to come out within 30 minutes. I am not exaggerating when I say he found the ring in ONE MINUTE! It was incredible. Such a nice guy and such an expert at his craft. If you lose jewelry in the South Bay, call Steve.”

Keep up the good work!

Last night I received a call from Fred, he had lost his wedding ring while at the beach with his family. He put all of the belongings that he thought could be lost in his chair while he went in the water and played with his children. What happened though was that when they were packing to leave the beach for the day, he forgot about the ring when gathering up his belongings, and when he picked the chair up, the ring disappeared into the sand. When he called, even though it was getting late, and he had already gone home, I convinced Fred to meet me at the beach so he could guide me to the area, and help me to help him. It is so important in a public area such as a beach or park, to do the search right away so as to eliminate many of the factors that could make a search impossible. In these recovery’s, time is the enemy.

Fred beat me to the beach, and with the dwindling light and lack of crowds, it made easy to find him. He led me out to the area, and showed me what had happened, and in what direction they had left the beach, so I began my search. As I searched, I would stop when I had found a bottle cap, foil, or some other metal I would turn to show Fred in order to let him know that I had not found the ring during that dig, but it seemed he was in deep thought (or prayer) hoping for the ring’s return, that he did not notice my showing of the metal most of the time. I searched from the first area up to the exit of the sand with no ring. I then took off my shoes to go into the water in the incoming tide, and began my search in the wet sand planning to work into the water. I got a good signal and dug. It wasn’t in the first scoop, so I dug again, and this time the metal was in the scoop. I shook the sand out, and there was Fred’s ring, a big heavy platinum ring. My scoop is 14 inches long, and that ring had sunk at least that deep in the soft sand in just a few hours, helped by the water going over wave after wave. I held the ring up for Fred, and shined my head lamp on it so he could see what I was holding. I waited for him to realize what I was holding in my hand, and he came immediately over. He then took the ring, but I believe he had convinced himself it wouldn’t be found, and was trying hard to find the markings that would prove it his. When he finally realized the ring was his, he blew out a sigh of relief, which made it very evident that this ring meant a whole lot to him. He then informed me that he and his wife were going to celebrate their milestone 15th wedding anniversary next month. This was the ring his wife had given him on that celebrated day, and it held a great sentimental value for him, all of this exposed his huMANity. It was great to have been able to help him; a wonderful day.
