Billy a relative of Karen called me asking if I could help them find a family heirloom diamond ring that Karen had lost at the beach just an hour before the call. Knowing that the weather had been nice, and there were a lot of people there I told him I would leave right away to do the search if they would await. They agreed to wait, and I left for the search.

Billy met me when I arrived and took me to the area of the loss. His family including Karen was visiting from Wisconsin, and were scheduled to leave the next day, so this loss created a high level of tension. The ring had been Karen’s great grandmother’s, and had a deep special meaning for her. They showed me what had happened, the ring had flown off of her finger while she was brushing the sand off of her clothes. I began my search and found bottle caps, foil, some coins, but no ring. I then began searching in the other direction, and a little further out, when I got a good strong signal. I put the scoop in, pulled it up and shook out the sand. When I looked in, expecting to see the diamond ring, I saw 2 rings, and was a little puzzled. Before I brought them out, I asked if I was looking for 1 or 2 rings, they then said that 2 were lost, but they were really concerned about the diamond ring. That is when I pulled them both out of the scoop to everyone’s surprise. Karen had an immediate flood of emotion when she saw the ring her great grandmother had worn, and came and gave me a big hug. I know it was bothering her to think she might have to go back to Wisconsin leaving this representation of her family behind. Boy it is great to see joy restored!

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!

I received a call the other day from Alessandro who had lost his custom ring at the exercise yard at Venice Beach the day before. This was a ring he personally designed and crafted with his own hands, so it had a very special meaning to him. I wasn’t real confident of a recovery, but felt assured knowing that the County beach cleaning machines don’t go in there, so the possibilities were better than average for a recovery. I let him know I would leave immediately, and meet him there so he can show me the area and explain what had happened.

I got to the yard, and met with Alessandro. He took me to the area of the loss, and showed me the two areas he had focused on the day before while doing his exercises. He had put his ring in his back pocket, so as not to mar it on the equipment while he exercised. He did a lot of moves that caused him to be upside down in different spots in the yard, so the ring could have come out at one of those times. I searched the logical areas where one would have suspected the ring to have come out and landed; no ring. I went over the areas again; again no ring. One thing I have learned while being a ring finder, is that you have to exhaust all possibilities before you leave, so I began searching in an area that did not seem like a likely area, when I got a good signal. I scooped the sand, and saw a big shiny object. When I shook the sand, there it was. I had my back to Alessandro, and when I turned with his ring outstretched, he got up and ran over. He was very surprised and happy to see his ring again. I was very happy to make his day!

I received a call from Asher today, he had lost his wedding ring while pushing his daughter on a swing in his local park. He said it had happened today, and it sounded as though he had not left the area, so everything was sounding like there would be a successful recovery. Knowing this was in a public place the emphasis is on getting there for the search as soon as possible, so I told him I would leave right away.

When I got to the park, I walked over where the swings are, and Asher met me to show me what and where the loss happened. He had actually witnessed the ring coming off of his finger and hitting the sand, so he knew where it had gone, but yet he searched for over an hour with no luck in finding it. It is really amazing how the sand will swallow up a ring or piece of jewelry to where it is impossible to find. Fortunately I use the best equipment made for such a recovery, and have the experience to make the recovery happen. Like I tell the people who call me, if it is there I will find it. One short pass, and two scoops later Asher’s ring was in my scoop. He was very happy. This ring represented 3 years of loving commitment for him, he wanted it back, and I was happy to be able to make that happen for him. Awesome day!

II received a call from a young lady who had lost a safety deposit key. She thought she was holding an old key that was no longer usable, but her sister had given her the good key instead. As she was driving down the street she was thinking about the key and decided it was no longer needed, so she threw it out of the car window. It wasn’t until she contacted her sister later that she found out she had thrown out the much needed key.

When I got there she met me and told me all that had happened, and showed me the median. It was about 4:00 PM, on a weekday with a lot of traffic from people getting off of work on their way home. The median was no more than 8 feet wide, so checking on the tones that were on the edge would put me within inches of passing vehicles. The area was about 100 feet long, and I needed to make sure I covered to whole area because she had been moving, and the key most likely bounced when it hit, and was in an area further along from where it had been released. Fortunately she had another key similar to the one that was lost, so I was able to get a reading off of it to know what I was needing to hear. I found a lot of different types of metal during the search, and it wasn’t until neared the end of the median that I found the key underneath the grass. When I brought it back to her, she was very relieved and happy to have it back. Glad to have made her day.

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!
