White Gold Engagement Diamond Solitaire and Diamond Wedding Band Set Lost at Redondo Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call yesterday morning from Sara, about some rings that she had lost in the water the day before. She and her family had been at the beach for the day while vacationing from Minnesota. She told me that she lost the rings in the afternoon and when I looked at the tide charts, I could see the tide was still low, but on its way up. I said I could meet her there in 30 minutes, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to the beach, Sara showed me where she believed she lost the rings, and I began my search. I searched for about 30 minutes, when Sara came over and said her husband Tony (who was up on the hill overlooking the beach with their son) told her we needed to move about 50 feet to the South. I continued my search, but the tide was getting too high, and the waves were making it more difficult to search any deeper. I knew the tide was going to be a minus tide this morning at about 6:30 AM, so I told Sara, I would come back for a search at 5:00 AM. She asked if there was any chance of a recovery, and I told her I always have hope.

Well I got up at 4:00 AM and was on the beach at 5:00 AM. There was definitely a lot more sand to search, and I knew that if it was there I had a good chance of getting it. I could not search where Sara’s husband had mentioned because at 5:00 AM in the dark there was a woman playing in the waves right in the exact area, so I chose to begin where Sara had originally shown me. I started, and began to work my way towards the spot of the loss, and when I drew near the woman left, which made it easier to search the area. Once I began in the area, I made a few passes, when I got a loud bang of a sound in my headphones. I dug, dumped the sand, kicked it around, I ran my coil over the sand, heard the bang in the headphones again, kicked that sand again, and then saw the rings, still together. The great help was that they were able to meet me at the beach the day before and show me exactly where the loss occurred. I got excited, put the rings in my pouch, and made my way home. I waited until a couple of hours later to send Sara the message, so she could sleep in and get some rest. I sent a picture of the rings, and she sent a text back of her unbelief and happiness. We met back at the beach about an hour later, and I was able to give Sara, Tony’s token of his love and commitment to their union, given to her 12 years before. They were leaving for home tomorrow, and she had been worried the rings might be lost forever. What a great day!

Gold Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Surf .. Paradise Cove, Malibu, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Mary’s husband called me the morning after she lost a white gold diamond ring in the surf at Paradise Cove near Malibu, CA. Mary was in waist deep water at a mid high tide when she was unexpectedly hit by a large wave. She felt her ring come off her finger right at that moment.
Her husband want to know if there was a chance to find it. I told him, we first needed to return to the general location. Then we had to see the sand conditions. ( The So. Cal. beaches vary from day to day ) Also our chances are better if somebody can be available to tell exactly what happened and where the loss occurred.
We agreed that Mary would meet me at Paradise Cove at 11:30am. The tide was rising which wasn’t a good thing. If necessary, I might have to return the next day at the lowest tide. First things first, meet the person that lost it, get the general location and give it a try with my CTX 3030 metal detector.
Everything went like clock work as we met on the beach. Mary told me that she had worn this ring for 10 years and it meant the world to her. She paced back and forth helpless on the upper sand watching me each time I dug a pull tab, etc. In my mind I was planning a return trip for the next day. Then the 12-07 reading on my CTX ID screen and a definite tone to match. I knew the ring would be in this scoop. Yes! Mary’s white gold diamond wedding ring. It was halfway up in the wet sand and must have been thrown forward as the wave hit her from her backside.
Where, how and when didn’t matter now. What was important, is the fact that all our efforts worked to get Mary’s rearing back where it belongs and the story of her ring goes on. I don’t get tired of doing this when I see how grateful Mary was. A sight to remember.

Lost Tungsten Wedding Ring .. Huntington Beach, CA. .. Found and Returned

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I woke up to find an email from Katelyn whose husband had lost his Tungsten Carbide wedding ring at Huntington Beach three days before. She wanted to know if I had found a tungsten ring recently.
I sent her a reply and asked her to call me if she was interested in me searching for the ring.
When she called I told her that this beach is heavily hunted with detectors and the beach cleaning machines are very efficient. I would still be willing to go if I could get her husband Casey to give me details of where and how the loss occurred.
Casey called explaining that he had put his ring in one of his shoes for safe keeping while he went swimming. When he got back to his towel which was near lifeguard tower number 3 at Huntington City Beach. (heavily searched everyday by detectorists)
He picked up his shoes and walked 100 yards to the wall near the pedestrian/ bicycle path. That’s where he checked his shoes, discovering that his ring was missing.
I told him as honestly as a could that our chances were not the best but I was close to the location and I would give it a try. I understood his directions so it wouldn’t be necessary for him to drive 50 miles to show me the area.
When I got to the beach I could see that they were preparing for a big surfing event. There were materials on the beach for building bleachers, etc. This was in our favor because the beach cleaning machines could not sift close to the materials. I grid search most of a football field size area from the lifeguard tower #3 to the wall when I got a signal that turned out to be Casey’s ring. What a surprise for me and anybody else that knows this beach. Rule of the day… “You can’t find it if you don’t TRY.”

Called Casey with the good news. He could not drive to Huntington Beach from Yucaipa,CA. So we agreed that I send it by mail which only took two days. Casey sent me the photo of himself and Katelyn just after they received the ring. I’m learning everyday to stay positive on these searches, it’s not easy if you think you know everything. Stay Humble!

Lost Ring in Surf, Throwing Football .. Strand Beach, Dana Point, CA.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I’ve been checking my emails more often than usual, because more inquiries about TheRingFinders service have been coming to me through emails. Most of them seem to be written late at night or early am hours. Most likely because they are not able to sleep thinking about their loss.
Lisa had emailed me asking if I could help her and her husband Logan find a gold wedding ring lost at Stand Beach, Dana Point, CA.
It was lost the day before at high tide in knee deep water while throwing a football. He felt the ring come off his finger the moment it happened.
I get excited with this kind of story because it can be a successful search if the sand is not too mushy. We need to get close to the general location which sometimes can be a problem.
I talked to Logan on the phone and he told me it was just south of the last lifeguard stand and he could see a large blue tarp covering a fence on the slope directly in front of where he lost the ring.
I arrived a half hour before Logan and Lisa, at low tide the next morning. The wet sand conditions were perfect, not too soft. Walking down the beach I found the landmarks Logan gave me. It didn’t take long and I had the ring in my scoop. Twenty minutes later they walked up to me on the beach. I asked them a question about what type metal the ring was then held the ring up for them to see. They were surprised immediately and the smiles were a sight to remember.

Local Newport Beach Surfer Loses Ring in Sand .. Found and Returned

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I got a call from Indy who was standing on the beach at 38th Street, Newport Beach, CA. He had been searching the sand for an heirloom ring that had been given to him by his grandfather. A unique ring made of rose gold, white gold and yellow gold. It had fallen out of his backpack where he had put it for safekeeping while he surfed that morning. Somebody on the beach saw him searching and told him about TheRingFinders website.
Indy is one of our local Newport Beach surfers who is on the beach every day in the summer. He was very courteous on the phone explaining he didn’t have much money. I told him it doesn’t matter, I will be there in 20 minutes, just don’t bury it any deeper in the sand. I could find it if he can stay in the area till I get there.
It did take awhile to find parking but after walking onto the beach, Indy showed me where he had laid his backpack. These are the easiest searches so it was seconds till I had his ring in the scoop. This ring meant a lot to him, I could tell by the look of relief on his face.
I’ve been on the beach most of my adult life, I would have loved to have been a teenager living near the beach. It was a pleasure to help this young man.

St. Christopher Pendant Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

As I was traveling to Zuma Beach last Saturday to find a ring, I received a call from Olivia asking if I would be able to help find a pendant she lost while playing volley ball. I asked if she could wait until finished my search for the ring, and if so, I would head directly over to look for the pendant. She happened to be at work, so she was able to wait. When I found the ring, I headed straight to the area she had given me.

When I got there Olivia had thought she would have some time to come over and show me where the loss occurred, but it didn’t work out. We talked over the phone, and she explained where the loss occurred. I was standing there, and made sure I understood everything she told me. I then got to work, and found the pendant within 20 minutes. I could tell it was old, and it must have been given to her by someone special, something she for sure did not want to lose. I waited until she got off of work, when I was able to give it back to her. She was so thankful, and very happy to have it back again. A wonderful day!

Gold Ring Lost at Zuma Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Brad called last Saturday. He had been playing volleyball with friends, when he hit the ball, his ring flew off of his finger and was swallowed up in the dry sands. We arranged to meet as soon as I could get there. Traffic was a bit tough being on a hot weekend, but I was able to find him.

Brad explained that his mother had given him that ring 20 years earlier, so it was a very sentimental loss for him. He showed me the area, and I got to work. After about 5 minutes, I got a good signal in the head phones, dug and had a nice big gold ring in the scoop. Needless to say, Brad was very excited to see the ring again, and very thankful for the service of The Ring Finders. Another great day!

Lost Rose Gold Wedding Ring .. Monarch Bay Club, Dana Point,CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Krystal had been at Monarch Bay Club on the beach, Dana Point,CA. with relatives and it was a great day until she got home. That’s when she reached into her beach bag to retrieve her Rose Gold wedding ring, which she had placed there for safe keeping. It was not in the bag. Krystal and her husband Bob looked everywhere in their car without finding the ring.
She believed it may have been pulled out of the bag when she was pulling out items during their day at the beach.
The next day they brought a borrowed metal detector to the beach.
They spent a half day with the detector scanning the whole beach. Now the tide was starting to move in. Their friend google searched several key words when she came up with TheRingFinders.com.
When they called me I told them we still had enough light to do a search. The area could possibly be massive.

I arrived, beginning my search grid to stay ahead of the incoming tide. After about an hour and a half I was preparing my words to tell them I can not locate the ring. I could only see a small 20’x 20′ area to search. Bingo! I got the sound and reading I was looking for. A quick scoop in the wet sand and I had the ring in my hand.

Krystal, Bob and their friend were standing off in the distance and they had that hopeless look on their faces. I walked up to them asking for a description of the ring at the same time I held it up for them to see. Happy faces with a little bit of tears of joy. We had a nice conversation walking back to our cars. It never gets old finding these sentimental mental symbols of Krystal and Bob’s love for each other.

Gold Pendant Lost at the Beach .. Salt Creek Beach, South Laguna, CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Megan called asking my help finding a gold pendant that had been lost in the sand at Salt Creek Beach. Share had been at the beach that afternoon with her nieces. Towards the end of the day she felt her gold chain dangling from her neck with the clasp open. A gold pendant that had been gifted to her by her mother was missing. This was a gift that was purchased in the Far East and was symbolic for Megan’s name.

She thought we could meet the next morning but I convinced her that she could sleep better if we could find it tonight. The area she believed it to be was less than 40’x40′. That would take a half hour or less. Megan said, she could be there with her uncle and aunt to meet me at 9pm.

It’s about 4 or 5 blocks down to location. She was having a slight difficulty finding the exact spot because the tide had risen and it was dark. I started to grid search when another detectorist came out of the darkness asking if we had lost something. He acted a little strange and seemed like he wanted to help. I did not need another detector interfering with my detector in such close quarters. I told him I could handle the search and if we needed him we would ask him later.

At the end of an hour unsuccessful searching I was beginning to think that the other detector guy may have found the gold pendant and didn’t tell us. It’s hard to search when your mind keeps trying to discourage you. I moved closer towards the incoming tide just at the edge of the damp sand when I got a nice gold tone that proved to be Megan’s pendant.

Everybody was on edge because we were running out of places to search. They had even quit watching me. So it was easy to not give away that I had found it. I walked up to Megan asking her to look into my scoop. She yelled, you found it and immediately broke out in tears of gratitude. This special gift from her mother was back where it belongs. It took a little longer than I thought but everybody slept well that night including me.
I probably should apologize to that other detectorist for thinking that he may have already found it and didn’t tell us.

Sentimental Silver Cross Lost .. Victoria Beach, Laguna,CA. .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)

Robert called, asking if I was available to help him find a silver cross in the sand at Victoria Beach, South Laguna. This was a sentimental keepsake that his wife had for many years and she was devastated with the thought that she would never see it again.

He could not meet me at the location as he had a meeting that next morning. For me it was not necessary for Robert to be there. His description of where they had been was clear and would be easy to find. All I had to do was be there early enough to beat any other detectorists to the beach. Besides I know there is a missing silver cross and nobody else knows that.

As I suspected, I reached the area to the right of the lifeguard tower and began my grid. Three passes and Boom! Robert’s wife’s cross in the scoop. Called Robert with the good news. Robert me met a few hours later picking up the cross and telling me that he was going to surprise his wife when he got home. I wish I could have seen that. Another fun search with a happy couple that I enjoyed helping.
