I received a call from Virginia today, New Years Eve Day, She had lost her ring set of 36 years in her back yard, and was unable to find them after much looking. After asking a few questions about the loss, and knowing it was a recent loss, I let her know I would be there in about an hour.

When I got to her house, Virginia and her husband met me and took me to the area where she believed she lost the rings. It was a relatively small wood deck area with some wide sections between the boards. She had been dusting in the house, and came outside onto the deck to remove the dust off of the duster, and when she was done she saw that her rings were missing. Where could they have gone? The deck was completely surrounded by a wood lattice fencing, and she did not hear the rings fall; they had completely disappeared! The only thing she thought could have happened was that the rings fell through an opening in the wood deck, which sounded reasonable to me, so I got my equipment ready and squeezed under the deck for a search; nothing.  Well I have done this long enough to know that rings do things when they leave the hands they are on that sometimes defy logic. So I expanded my search outside of the lattice fencing with a flashlight looking down into more of the wood decking with no luck. I was about 15-20 feet from the original spot of loss when I looked under the ledge of their shed and saw this huge soldered ring set. The rings must have left Virginia’s finger at a perfect trajectory to make them go precisely through a 1 1/2 inch hole in the lattice fencing, and landing 20 feet away; amazing for sure. I brought them to her, and she was very happy; what a great way to finish off the year!

I got a call last night, Christmas night, from Charles who had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier that day. He went to go surfing, and wisely took his ring off , and handed it to his wife for safekeeping (people lose a lot of rings in the water). She put the ring on her finger, but because it was much larger in size than her finger, somehow within the space of an hour it had slipped off and went into the soft sand to disappear. They had searched for it, and had not been able to find it, so they did a web search, and was able to find my site on the internet. I was visiting relatives, and had to get to my house to acquire my equipment, so I gave him an estimated time that I would be able to get to the area, and we arranged to meet.

Charles met me at the beach about 9:40 PM, and showed me the area his wife had been sitting. I began my search, and got one bottle cap, and one small piece of tin foil, happy to know that the beach was real clean of trash. About 2 grid passes more, and I had his ring in my scoop. So by about 10:00 PM Christmas night, he was wearing his wedding ring again. Charles was very happy, and told me that I had made his day. I knew that he and his wife would end this Christmas on a merrier note! Glad to have been a help.

Charles sent the following testimonial:

I gave my ring to my wife when going surfing in Malibu on Christmas Day, in the afternoon.
When asking her to give me back the ring, she realized she lost in in the sand as it slipped from her finger.
We searched in the sand for 30 minutes but were unable to find it. We finally drove back home later in the afternoon.
As searching on Internet for a solution, I ended up finding the Ringfinders website and emailing Steve. He answered super quickly and we met on the beach in Malibu around 9.30PM.
It only took him 10 minutes to find my ring. I was really happy with such a happy ending ! Thanks a million to Steve for this, a great, helpful and friendly professional.

I got a call from Nuna, she had been running on the beach, when a great dane dog came running full speed at her and collided with her knocking her down. When she got up she realized that the collision was so extreme, her earring was dislodged from her ear and lost somewhere in the sand. This earring was part of a set, that was originally her mother’s who had passed away a few years prior, so the recovery of this piece of jewelry was  very important to her. I left right away.

We met up at the beach after I arrived, and walked over to spot of the loss. The lifeguards had raked the area over real well, as the sand was smoothed out over a 30 by 30 foot patch of sand. I began my search, and began finding some odds and ends like bottle caps and foil, but no earring. I just continued my grid making sure I covered every inch of the area. I showed Nuna the items I had found, and continued the search. Then as she was coming back from talking with one of the lifeguards, I got a good gold sound in the headphones, scooped, and had her earring. I pulled it out of the scoop and held it up so she could see it, and she came over in disbelief. She thought as many do, that her sentimental item was lost forever, but we as members of The Ring Finders are here to do our best to make sure that isn’t the case. So glad to have made Nuna’s day, and give her reason to smile; GREAT DAY!

Bryan contacted me the other day regarding the loss of a pendant he wore around his neck. He had been playing football in the sand at the beach, when as a result of an attempted tackle, the necklace that held the pendant came apart, and the pendant was engulfed by the sand. He told me that it had high sentimental value, and it would mean a lot to him if I was able to find it. I let him know that I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the area, I began walking out on the sand, and Bryan met me and walked me over to the spot of the loss. I could see where he and his friends had been combing the sand with their hands and feet. We talked about what had happened, and how it happened, so that I had a good idea of where I should begin my search. I also asked what I was looking for, and Bryan said, “a silver bullet”. I began a grid, and worked it to the outer edge of where they had been searching. I did not find the “bullet”, so I began searching the other side when I got a strong signal and dug. In the scoop was a key, and as I usually do I held it up for Bryan to see, and let him know it was just a key. I was getting ready to put into my finds bag when he came up and said, “wait, that key was also on the necklace”. I then ran the detector over the spot again with another good signal coming through. I scooped again, and in the scoop was a cylindrical shaped pendant, but not a bullet. When I pulled it out Bryan got so very emotional and said, “You have no idea what this means to me”, so I asked if he would let me know. He told me his father had passed away a couple of years ago, and this cylinder held a portion of his ashes. At this point I realized how important this recovery was to Bryan. He was so relieved, and I was very happy to have been able to help; a great day!

Brad called the other day about his lost ring. He, his wife and some friends were at the beach throwing a football around. When it was thrown to him, he reached out to catch it, and the ball hit his hand and his ring went flying. They searched for quite sometime before calling, but I was able to leave right away to get there to perform the search.

When I arrived, I found Brad, and we talked about what had happened. He showed me the area, the way he was standing, and the direction the ball had hit his hand. Looking over the sand I could tell there had been a lot of digging for the ring. I began my search, not hearing any signals (this beach is sifted daily by the county, and very clean), but continued my grid. Finally on my second pass, I got a signal, and in the scoop was Brad’s ring. I reached in and then held it up for him to see, as he came running over with his wife. She looked at me and with a glint in her eye said, “it was a good thing you found the ring, I was getting ready to file an annulment”, and then laughed. I found out they had only been married 2 months, so this loss would have meant a lot to them. So happy to have made their day!

Austin called a couple of days ago asking for help in finding his ring. He had been at the beach, and wanted to go in the water, which is what he did. He came out of the water and as he walked back to his belongings he started shaking his hands to remove the water as he walked along. When he got back to his towel, he realized his ring was gone. He did remember it being on his finger when he came out of the water, but now it was gone. I happened to be coming back from my son’s college and asked if he would be able to wait for me to get home and get my equipment, and he said he could. I then said I would be there as soon as possible and let him know when I arrived.

When we finally met up, Austin took me over to where he had been, and where he believed he had shaken his ring off of his hand. I then began a close grid making sure I covered every inch. I found numerous  pieces of metal, bottle caps, foil, and some coins, but no ring, so I expanded my search area. Austin continued to show me where he might have been as my search area expanded. I started to work more towards the water, and he kept saying he believed the ring to have come off in the other direction, but I asked if he would just allow me to search a little more in the direction I was going, I would go in the other direction after. As he was looking over on the other side of the search area, I got a good signal, dug and had his ring in my scoop. I then called him over to ask him again about where he might have been when the ring came off, and as he started explaining again, I held up his ring. He looked over and saw it, and did a double take; he could not believe it was found, and that it was all the way over where I had found it. I let him know that we sometimes have to go “out of the box” sometimes to find what people thought was lost forever. This ring is very special to him, his wife has a matching one. So glad to have made his day!

Mary Ellen contacted me yesterday about an earring she lost in her backyard. She remembered walking down the walkway to her garage when one of the overhanging plants caught her earring and then it was gone. These were her mother’s earrings, so they held a special place in her heart. We talked a bit, I asked some pertinent questions, and we scheduled to meet this morning to search her garden area.

I got to her house, and she came out right away and took me back to the area of the loss. She then showed me how she had been walking on the walkway, and the plants that snagged her earring to pull it off. There was some thick ground cover, that could have swallowed up an earring in a second. I began my search, and fortunately found that there wasn’t a lot of metal in the ground, which I have found to be very uncommon over the years. I had a few good signals, but they were too deep for what I was looking for. I got another good signal, and while moving the groundcover around noticed the glint of gold. I pushed the greenery aside, and there was the lost earring. I walked it right over to Mary Ellen, and she seemed very relieved to have it back. This made her day, and made mine as well to see her smile!

I got a call from Axtlan’s mother. It seems he had been working out at the old Muscle Beach, climbing the ropes, and working on some of the other equipment, and lost his car key in the sand. It hadn’t been too long, and I wasn’t very far from there, so I told her I would come right away.

When I got there they showed me the 3 possible areas the loss could have occurred, and I got to work. I searched the first one, and no key. I then went to the second one, no key. Finally I searched the third spot, no key. I told them I would expand the search, but also asked if they had checked the nearby snack stand to see if someone might have found it and turned it in, and they hadn’t. I encouraged them to do so, and they seemed a bit apprehensive, I guess feeling the key would not have been turned over, and because it was a little out of the way, but I pressed the issue, letting them know that I would expand my search of the key in the mean time. Axtlan decided to walk over to check, and on his way over, he found the key sitting on top of a bench. Someone had found the key and placed it there hoping the owner would find it. Axtlan and his mother told me he would not have walked that way if I had not pressed the issue, and needless to say were very happy with the outcome. Always glad to help!

Later Monday night after I had found the ring at Hermosa Beach, Feliz called me about a ring she lost at Manhattan Beach. She had been there earlier in the day, and gone in the water, but before doing so, she wisely removed her ring and placed it in her jacket pocket. After coming out of the water, and forgetting that she had placed the ring in the jacket pocket, she moved things around, and left the beach. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later at the gym that she realized her ring was missing. Someone she knew had found The Ring Finders site on the internet, and told her about us, where she was able to contact me. She told me the ring had special meaning to her, and she would appreciated it I could help her find it. I said I would be there in 30-40 minutes.

When I got there we met, and Feliz took me down to the beach to show me where she had been. The problem was that it was a little after 8:00 PM, and in the darkness it was difficult for her to find any landmarks that could help her find exactly where she had been sitting, so she gave me a pretty good swath of beach to go over. I knew I would be finding quite a lot of things just because of so much sand to cover, and was hoping she would not get too discouraged with the search. As I anticipated I found a lot of bottle caps, foil, some coins, and other metal, but no ring. She looked at photos she had taken while she was at the beach earlier, and we were able to figure out approximately where she was sitting in regards to the towel line, so I expanded my search. For most of this time Feliz had been looking herself, and also coming over to see what I had found, but then she just went over and sat down. I have seen this level of discouragement set in on a long search, but I know from experience that until you have covered every base, the search is not over. I kept working out, away from the slope, when one more good signal. I scooped it up and there was the ring. I grabbed it and called out to Feliz. She jumped up and ran over. When she saw the ring, and identified it as the one she lost earlier, she immediately broke down with emotion. She explained that the ring was her father’s, a man she so adored, and he had passed from this life just one month ago; my heart broke. This ring was something of his that she would wear to allow her to be close to him, and to lose it…well, I just can’t put that into words. What a wonderful day Monday was, and some awesome smiles. So glad to have been able to help Feliz restore her joy.
