Irene had been gardening Wednesday morning when she noticed her diamond wedding ring missing from her finger. The last she remembered seeing it was the day before, so it could have also been lost in the backyard where she had done another cleanup project.
Irene had worn this ring for over 30 years, a gift from her husband, who had recently passed away. She was very distraught, so she called her daughter, Karen to help her. They spent several hours checking the house and everyplace that it could be visible by eye. Because Irene had spent so much time in the gardens they both felt it had to be in the freshly tilled soil.
Karen went to the internet to explore chances of getting a metal detector expert. She found TheRingFinders.com and my contact information. I was able to meet them within a hour.
We spent a few minutes discussing the what actions might have caused the loss of the ring and explaining how the metal detector works. Then we walked to all the places Irene had been outside sense yesterday, gardens in front, along the side of the house and a lawn in the backyard. I now could get my detector and set up it up for the search.
As we walked back along the side of the house to get my detector, Irene spotted her ring in plain site on the side walk. All three of us walked over it at least once. They thought that it may have been hiding behind a box of leaves that she had moved off the sidewalk.
It doesn’t matter how we found the ring. What’s most important is that the ring is back where it belongs.
Another thing to remember is, that it’s not always about using the metal detector. Many searches will just prove that the lost article is not in that location. When a ring can’t be found with my detector. I always tell the people to check their washing machine and clothes dryer, pockets, purses, etc.

Ring Lost at Huntington State Beach .. Found with Metal Detector

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Samantha had read a posting on social media about a ring that I found for a lady a couple weeks ago. She had no idea that she would need my services.
Saturday Samantha and her husband Steve went to Huntington State Beach. Before going into the water Steve put his wedding ring in the cup holder of his beach chair. The rest of the story is like many other lost ring stories. Ring in the sand then the hours of raking their fingers through the sand to no avail.
After giving up, returning home Samantha remembered the story about TheRingFinders.com . She contacted me giving me perfect directions so I could start the search before they arrived. It was another easy search because I found the trash can that they were near and then I could see the finger marks through the sand. It still took about 20 minutes as they were about 10 feet from the actual location of the ring.
Text message them a photo of the ring and when they got to the beach I got to see the smiles and the gratitude they both had for the return of wedding band. Steve said, that last night he had thoughts about how he had worn the ring everyday for six and a half years and it was now gone.. We changed that part of the ring’s story. It was a pleasure to meet Samantha and Steve. This does not get old, I can’t wait till the next call.

Javier called me about 8 pm, Monday night. He had lost his wedding ring the day after his marriage to Stephanie. They had a big reception, Sunday at his parent’s home. He wasn’t quite sure where or when it was lost but he was able to eliminate a few areas by reviewing photos taken during the day.
He believed it was lost on their large lawn. It was not a public area so it wasn’t necessary to do the search that night. It’s always a question in my mind, what kind of conditions will I find when I get to the search area. It was a nice yard area that had quite a few metal trash signals, mostly deep. I set my sensitivity on my detector low because there is no need to waste time investigating deep targets. I concentrated on the low tones with surface depth readings ( 1″ or 2″ ). After about 30 minutes I got a got the perfect gold tone at 2 inches. Javier’s ring in the grass probably stepped deep into the grass by several people during the party.
The family had left me to do the search while they waited inside the house. I did not touch the ring, I wanted them to see how well it was hiding in the grass. We all enjoyed the moment, sincerely thanking me and taking time to take photos. It was definitely a pleasure to help them find their wedding ring.

Metal Detector Rental ? To Find Your Lost Sentimental Jewelry

Renting a metal detector is time consuming and will be frustrating if you have never used one. Especially near salt water or trashy parks were there are years of pull tabs and bottle caps to make things interesting.
Jessica called me asking me if I rent metal detectors and how my service works. She found my name on TheRingFinders.com.. I replied by saying I want to help you find the lost ring. You the rest is up to you. Time is very important and I’m available anytime you are. Her husband Andrew had lost his platinum wedding band while throwing a football at the top of the high tide line Sunday about 6pm.
They were at Surfside Colony a private community near Sunset Beach in north Orange County, CA.. Jessica said that she could meet me to get me in the gate and show me the location. I told her that it works better if her husband, who had lost it, could be there to explain what had happened. Lately, I’m finding out that it makes the search much easier if the person who lost it gives me the details.
Andrew could meet me a couple hours later after he got off work. He brought his son Cole, so I gave them a short lesson about how the detector works on the walk to the beach front. The two high tides since he lost the ring had moved in several inches of sand over the top of the slope. I started the grid in the center of the 40×40 ft. location . There wasn’t much trash so the grid search was moving fast except for my explaining to them what I was doing. Then I got a fare sounding signal, after three scoops I lost hope that it was Andrew’s platinum ring mainly because it should have been a surface find. One more scoop and there was a beautiful platinum ring belonging to Andrew. You have to stay positive the ocean does strange things. In this case it had to deposit about 8 inches of new sand over the top of the slope onto the towel line in less than 24 hrs.
We took a few photos then I let Andrew and Cole swing my detector as we walked off the beach. I think we will have a new member joining this hobby of metal detecting. Again it was a pleasure to meet Andrew and Cole and help them find the lost.

Platinum Ring lost 10 days .. Doheny State Beach, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Monday 7-27-15 morning I had an email from Brandon inquiring about the cost of my service. He mentioned that he had lost a platinum wedding band ten days ago in the sand. The family had spent the evening at the beach enjoying a fire on the beach. When they packed up to leave he noticed his ring was missing. The beach closes at 10pm. Figuring it was lost forever in the sand they went home.
After ten days Brandon thought that there might be a chance to find it with a metal detector. His search online brought up TheRingFinders.com
After exchanging a couple emails Brandon said he had to work , but Isaac could meet me at Doheny State Beach. It was near noon when I arrived. Isaac was there to show me the general location telling me that they had stayed most the night in the small area. Fire rings are usually littered with small metal trash which may have been a factor that kept the ring from being found by other detectorists. I set up to dig all metal trash and it wasn’t long till the ring was in my scoop along with a pull tab and a few rocks.

After returning the ring to Isaac I spent a couple hours detecting. I realized how lucky we were on this recovery. There were signs of a recent metal detectorist working these tables and fire rings. The lifeguard told me this beach has several guys working the fire pits every couple days. They missed this one for 10 days. Reminding me not to give up. I’ll try Anywhere.
