I got an email from Jeremy on Sunday night. He had lost his wedding ring at a sports park the day before in the grass, and was not able to find it. He had removed it, and placed it in the cup holder of his chair to apply sunscreen, a story we hear all too often for sure. I let him know I was available the next day if he could meet me to show me where to look. We agreed on a time, and the meeting was set.

When I arrived Jeremy was waiting for me, and took me right over to the area. He showed me what he had done, and how he had left the field, so I knew where I would be looking. Also knowing this was a relatively new field, I did not expect a lot of metal to be there (foil, bottle caps, pull tabs, etc). That was the wrong assumption for sure, it seemed like there was something almost every swing of the coil that I had to check. A lot of fencing from the field perimeter was in the ground, and giving off a real good signal. This made for a slow search, as I covered the area. I searched all that Jeremy had showed me, and it was now time to expand the search out of the box. I searched into one field with no results, and then went over to the other field, got a good signal, looked down, and there on the surface of some dead grass was the ring. It was white gold which reflected the true color of its surrounding, so it was pretty much camouflaged right in the open. Jeremy had to go back to work, so I called, and he came right over very happy for the recovery. As a member of The Ring Finders, it is a pleasure to create these smiles!

I got a call from a young lady who lost her rental car key in the sand at the beach. I had some previous commitments, so I was not able to go and do the search until many hours later. She decided to do the search when I was available later in the evening, and I called her when I was on my way.

We agreed on where to meet, and she and a friend arrived to help me locate the search area. We went out, and I began my grid of the sand. It was about 75 feet to each point of the grid, but I just kept to the pattern. After about 5 grid lines, and many bottle caps, the ladies went back to the car they arrived in. That is when I found the key. I walked out to them. They had gone to retrieve an electronic lantern to help them see better in the darkness. I went over and teased that I thought they had left me, and was assured that was not the case, when I held out the key to their surprise. They were very happy, because the rental company had been a bear for them to deal with all day. Anyway, a great end of the day!

Gold Wedding Band and Special Coin on Chain Lost at Santa Monica Beach…Found and Happily Returned.

DJ called me because he had lost his wedding ring and special coin at the beach the day before, and was wondering if I could help him. We talked about the loss, and where on the beach the loss happened, and I was very pessimistic of being able to make a recovery because detectorists ply that area daily, as well as the coverage of the County beach cleaners. I wasn’t giving him much hope of a recovery because of the area he initially told me the loss occurred. As we further discussed the loss, it came to be that it happened in an area further away from his original disclosure. I then felt there was some hope feeling that maybe all of the factors that would have caused the ring and coin to be gone did not add up. We arranged to meet at about 11:30 PM to conduct the search because I did not want any more time to go by, taking away any other possible factors that would make the recovery impossible.

When we met at the beach, DJ, his wife, and friend took me out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. It is very hard in the darkness to locate landmarks, and decide how far a person was from the water depending on tides as well. They gave their best estimate, and I began my search. As I was doing my grid, they were examining further down the beach to see if maybe we were in the wrong area. After about 4 passes, DJ came to me thinking I should maybe work in the area further in the direction they were looking. It was not more than 20 feet away, so I told him that I was searching in that direction, and should just continue the grid so as to not miss any possibility. Then when I got to the end of that grid pass, at about 12:00 AM, that sweet gold sound in the head phones. As I scooped, I saw the chain everything was attached to drape down along my scoop, and knew we had success. DJ’s wife looked over when I reached down to recover the ring and coin, and came over expectantly. I put it behind my back and asked if they still wanted me to move over to other spot, and then brought the chain with the ring and coin out, she just beamed. They were so excited, being married just about 1 year, and thinking the ring was gone forever. It was surely a special recovery, having been lost the day before in a highly searched area. A great night for sure!

Alejandro contacted me about 8:00 PM asking if I could help him find his lost wedding ring. He had lost it earlier that day, and had a pretty good idea as to the general area where it could be. He originally was thinking the next morning, but I convinced him that even though it was now dark, it would be best to go and try that night. I knew that everything would be fresh in his mind, and any even small markers would still be there to help narrow down the search area. He agreed to meet me there that night.

It was about 9:00 PM when we met at the beach. He and his wife walked me out to the area of the loss. There was a great expanse of sand so it was imperative to get the location narrowed down as much as possible. On most beaches everything tends to look the same, and even more so at night with a limited light beam to lighten the area. Alejandro felt he had gotten me to the spot, and I began my search. I was finding bottlecaps, and tin foil, but not much else. Alejandro remembered having dug a small hole in the sand in the area they had been sitting, and proceeded to look for it. About 15 minutes into my search, he and his wife called me over, they had found the small hole. It was about 3 orr4 inches across, and looked to be about 6 inches deep, definitely unique to what I had been seeing. When I swung just to the right of the hole over a small mound of sand, I heard what sounded like the sweet sound of gold in my ear phones. One scoop, and there it was, Alejandro’s ring. I brought it out and gave it to him. He and his wife were very happy we were able to do the search. Not gone forever, but found and returned. Happiness all around!

I received an email from Kate about a ring her daughter lost at the beach the day before. It seems her daughter Nicole was coming out of the water when a large wave hit her from behind, knocked her to the sand, and with all the violence her engagement ring came off and was gone in an instant. I proceeded to inquire with my standard questions to see how likely there would be of a recovery. Kate explained what she could, and also sent me pictures, drawn, and satellite screen shots that helped define the area. Nicole was not able to be there to show me being a flight attendant, and was gone for work. I let her know that there was a possibility of a recovery, if someone had not found the ring first. I figured that I should go at the lowest possible tide, so I let Kate know I would be going at 12:00 AM to follow the tide down, and would let her know the outcome either way.

I got to the beach right about 12:00 AM and began my search. Because of the low tide there was a lot of sand to search on the slope, so I began my search slowly and methodically. There were virtually no signals, then maybe a penny, a half hour later a piece of aluminum, another half hour another penny. It was a search with little results, but I kept on with my methodical grid. I was wearing my waders, and working into the water, because of not knowing exactly how deep Nicole was when the ring was lost, and to be sure I covered all of the possible sand available. Then 2 1/2 hours later I received a good solid signal. I dug, dumped the sand, kicked it across the open sand, turned my headlight on, and there in the darkness was the sparkle of diamonds; my heart leaped. It was still there! It was now 2:30 AM. I got back to my car and immediately sent off a text to Kate with the words “I FOUND THE RING”. She slept through the early morning announcement, and contacted me later in the morning excited, and asked for a picture. She then let me know Nicole wanted to meet me and thank me personally for the recovery when she came back into town the next week, so I held on to the ring for that meeting.

The next week Nicole and Kate contacted me to let me know that Nicole would be arriving for a one day layover. Her hotel would be in downtown Los Angeles, so I asked if I could meet with her when she arrived at the airport which would be about 20 miles closer and a lot easier to get to, which she agreed to. I made sure I arrived a little early, and we were able to find each other. She even showed me the bruises she still had on her forearms from being knocked to the sand the week before. Nicole was so very happy to get back her ring that she felt was lost forever, and I was very glad to be able to be a help for her.

Kate sent the following testimonial:

My daughter was visiting Los Angeles and lost her engagement ring when she got knocked down by a wave in the surf. She was completely distraught and we tried contacting anyone we thought could help her. Totally by chance, I stumbled across The Ring Finders website and contact information for Steve Smith. With it already being 24 hours after the fact and her having already flown out of the area, I was not at all optimistic.

I sent him satellite pictures from Google maps of where she was, pictures of the ring, and told him what time of day she lost it. He immediately identified that when she lost it was at high tide and said he needed to look for it between midnight and 2 am so he would be out there looking that night. I was shocked that a complete stranger was willing to go out at midnight wandering on the beach to try to find her ring!! I was even more astounded when he messaged back that HE FOUND IT!! I can’t even begin to comprehend HOW he did it (other than he must be an absolute genius) but whatever he did, it works!!

Mr. Smith is nothing less than a true angel and we can’t begin to thank him enough!! Not only did he find a ring that everyone was certain would never be seen again but he did it in the middle of the night when he could have been home in bed asleep!! Mr. Smith, you have definitely restored my faith in humanity and proven that there are still truly good people out there who are willing to put others interests ahead of their own! The world is blessed to have people like you in it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Sentimental Heirloom Pendant Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

RJ called me in the afternoon on a hot day for a search. He had been at the beach the day before, and before going in the water he remembered putting his necklace with pendant into his bag. When he left though the necklace was gone, he figured in the beach sand. This piece of jewelry was given to him by his mother. It had been worn by his grandfather while he fought in World War 2. The pendant had the word LUCK written in Hebrew, and it meant the world to him. I came right away.

When I arrived there was still a lot people on the sand, but RJ believed that it was in an area that people were not in at the time. I did a search the best I could, but was not able to find the ring. I let him know I would go back when everyone had gone home. I got there about 8:30 PM, and began my search. After about 1 1/2 hours, and many bottle caps, pennies, and tin foil, I got another good signal. When I dug, there in my scoop was the pendant, not where he had thought it was, in fact way over to the other side of where he had conducted me earlier. This is the reason it is best to get on the search as soon as possible, because over time people tend to forget exact details that we as Ring Finders need in order to have a successful search. Of course we need to think and search “out of the box” at times in order to have a complete search of an area, and this is what was done this time. I sent RJ a text to let him know I found the pendant and chain, and arranged to meet him at the bar he was at to return it. Needless to say RJ was very happy that night!

I received a call yesterday from Jon, he was on vacation with his family from Texas. They took a trip to the beach to enjoy their last day in California before flying home. He was out in the surf amongst the breakers, when he got hit by a wave that knocked his ring off of his finger into the churning surf. Shocked to realize his ring was gone, he began trying to find it with goggles on, and the breaking waves moving him all around. He spent about 3 hours searching before he found me on The Ring Finders web site. When he called I asked my general questions, and after he said he did not think he was too deep, I let him know I would be there soon.

When I got there Jon met me, and took me over to the area of the loss. He explained what had happened, and how deep he thought he was. The problem was that the tide was coming in, and now 3 hours later was probably out of reach for me, by the look of the breaking waves. I did a search the best I could out in the surf, with not even a signal, it had been too long, so I told Jon, I would come back at 3:00 AM today when the tide would be at its lowest for the day and do another search. I let him know he would be welcome to meet me if he was so inclined, and he accepted the invitation. I got to the beach a little before 3:00 AM and began my search. About 10 minutes later Jon, his wife, and Father in Law came over to where I was searching. I had a couple of faint signals that caused me to dig deep thinking the ring had sunk deep into the soft sand, only to come up empty. Then a couple of passes later I was out in the water about knee deep when I received a good strong signal, dug, rinsed, and there in the bottom of my scoop was Jon’s ring. For the ring to still be knee deep showed that Jon had been much deeper than he originally believed because of today’s 1.3 minus tide. I walked right over to them and presented it to him, to which they were all surprised. So by 3:30 AM Jon had his ring of 10 years back on his finger. He told me he thought it had been gone for good, and that is why we do what we do, to find that which people thought they would never get back, and produce such great smiles. So thankful to make a happy ending to their California vacation, and make their trip back to Texas a pleasurable one!

I received a call earlier today from Devon who was calling for his friend Kari. Kari had been sitting in a beach chair, and decided to apply some sunscreen. She did not want to mess her wedding band with the cream, so she removed it and put it on the chair. She then moved forgetting it was on the chair, and in that process it was gone in the soft sand. She searched where she thought it might have fallen, but was unable to find it, even with the help of friends. Kari’s husband had gotten the ring as a special gift for her, so it had a special sentimentality. I let Devon know that I was on my way and would contact him when I arrived.

When I got to the beach, we were able to find each other after a little communication, When they showed me the area, I knew that if everything played out as they explained to me, the ring was going to be found. They had many things in their favor, but the two most important were that they called right away, and that they had not left the area. I set up after they had moved the beach chairs, adjusted the detector’s sensitivity, and proceeded to search. One swing, nice tone, one scoop, and in the scoop was Kari’s ring. I pulled it out and held it up, when at that point the whole group of people surrounding me burst into cheers, and when I handed it back to Kari, she became very emotional. It took all of about 10 seconds to have the ring back in Kari’s hand. I love to see joy restored!

Kari sent the following testimonial:

Hi Steve,

Thank you again so much for finding my ring yesterday. I just posted a review on your yelp page.

Here is a testimonial for your website:

It was a typical beach day. I removed my diamond eternity band to apply sunscreen as I always do but somehow got distracted and forgot to put it back on. Suddenly about an hour and a half later I realized my ring wasn’t on my hand. I had set it next to me on my beach chair and now it was gone. Likely buried in the sand somewhere. I was distraught. I had a fast thinking friend who called a metal detector shop and they referred us to Steve. We had tried to contain the area where we thought it might be as best we could. Steve showed up and saved the day! After going over some details with me, he put his equipment to work and sure enough, the first swipe yielded my ring! I will be forever grateful to Steve for finding this very sentimental gift given to me by my husband.

Thank you again Steve!

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!
