Wedding Ring lost in Malibu, CA Mountain Backyard…Found and Joyously Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was eating breakfast this morning when I noticed an email come in on my phone. I read that it was from Rosalie. She told how she had just gotten married yesterday, but her ring got lost in the backyard. She and her husband had their sweet little puppies as their ring bearers. The rings were tied, one around each of their necks with ribbons, and they were supposed to come to them during the ceremony to deliver the rings. The problem with puppies is that they are puppies, and they have a natural desire to play, and play they did. When they were supposed to deliver the rings, they began to rough house around the back yard; “wrestling” as Rosalie put it. When they finally got control of the dogs, they noticed that the ribbon on the one who had Rosalie’s ring had come untied, and the ring was gone. They and their wedding party searched for the ring, but to no avail. I got right back with her, and arranged to meet in a few hours.

When I got to their house they showed me the backyard, which was not very big, and explained what had happened. I had a few questions. There were some clumps of high grass, and a type of deep clover. It looked as if it would be a simple search, until I began, and realized that there was a lot of metal under the dirt. I searched with my standard coil with no luck, then switched to more of a sniper coil, and went over the yard again, still no luck. About this time I could see a look of resignation in Rosalie’s eyes, thinking the ring was gone for good. I then switched my program, to eliminate all iron from sounding and went over the yard again. This time I got a good signal next to one of the clumps of grass, put the pin pointer in, and it started screaming in my ears. I moved the grass around, and there was her ring. I looked around for her and noticed she had gone in the house, so I put the ring on my pinky finger, and put all my gear away. I then went over and knocked on the door. Rosalie came over, and I told her that I have finished my search, at which time I could see a slight downcast demeanor come over her. At that time I then lifted my hand and showed her the ring stating that is because I found the ring. Needless to say, there was instant joy emblazoned all over Rosalie’s face, as she exclaimed to her new husband how I was able to find her ring. What pleasure to be able to bring such joy to people, and what a great day it was today!

Rosalie sent the following testimonial:

Steve truly saved the day — after losing my wedding band just before the ceremony, my husband’s 8 year old god-daugther so sweetly offered me her ring.
The next morning I typed “lost wedding ring” into google and found Ringfinders and Steve. I emailed him and he got back to me within the hour (it was early) and made plans to come to our house later that morning. I was grateful for how quickly he responded. Once he got to work, he told me there was a lot of metal in the ground, making the search more difficult. After he had been searching for about an hour, I began to think it must have fallen beneath our deck and there would be no way to find it or retrieve it without pulling up the deck. I asked Steve if we should call off the search and he said he wasn’t ready to give up. I went back in the house, and had even called the jeweler to ask if they had a replacement ring in stock. A little while later Steve got my attention and I asked him if we should call off the search. He said “yes …. because I found the ring!” and a bright smile came across his face as I screamed “JEFF HE FOUND IT !!!!” I really couldn’t believe it — I was so surprised and thrilled! Steve is amazing, an expert at what he does, and he so clearly loves doing this – finding people’s treasures for them… You can see that the joy he brings to people is for him, priceless.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you Steve !

Custom Silver Ring With Black Diamonds Lost at Marina Del Rey Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Greg’s wife called me tonight about her husband’s lost ring. They had been enjoying themselves at the beach. Greg had taken his ring off, and put it into the cup holder of his beach chair while enjoying the sand and surf. Not thinking of the ring, when they were ready to go Greg’s wife folded up the beach chair, and the ring was gone. She felt very bad about what had happened. They found me on the internet, and I said I would come and help them, but they said the local police patrol was going to try to locate a detectorist the police thought they saw earlier. I told him, no problem, but if they could not find the guy to call me back, and that I was going to eat my dinner. About 20 minutes later Greg called back, the other detectorist must have left for the day. I told him I would be there as soon as I had finished my dinner, so he gave me directions.

When I got to the beach Greg met me to take me out to the area of the loss. They had stayed in the spot (very important), and had marked off an area they thought the ring may have fallen into (very helpful). I turned on my White’s Surfmaster PI Dual Field, and began my search. I made one pass, turned and got a strong signal, put the scoop in, and retrieved a bottle cap. I showed it to them, a little disconcerting I know when they are expecting to see their lost ring, but I feel the people I search for need to see everything I find. I took a couple more swings when I got another good signal. This time I pulled the scoop out and it looked like I had found real pirate’s treasure. This was a big custom silver ring loaded with black diamonds; real cool. Greg and his wife were so happy to see his ring, and lots of joy was restored today.

Gold Wedding Ring Lost in San Fernando Valley, CA Backyard…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from a young lady yesterday who explained that her husband lost his ring in the backyard. I had been waiting for a call back from someone, so I arranged to meet on the next day. The person did not call back, so I called them back and said that I could go immediately. They told me that it had been late at night, and the husband had been taking the ring off and putting it back on when he dropped it on the deck. When the ring hit the deck it was too dark to see, but they heard it roll to the edge, and then it was gone. They had searched that night, and then hours the next day to no avail.

When I got to their house, I was led to the backyard, and shown a nice new deck that had been built over a very steep hillside. I began my search at the top working around some metal that had been there. and then working down the hillside. I worked as much of the hill that I believed could have caught the ring on a downhill roll, but just came up with nothing but deck screws and nails, with the occasional beer can. I felt that I had completed a thorough search, but did not find the ring, so I went back to the deck, and sat in the area of the loss, contemplated and discussed the loss again with the husband and wife, that is when the wife said she thought it might be right where I began my search. I decided to remove the wires that were there, even though I did not know what they were attached to. As soon as I removed them the husband said that’s it, and I saw the slight glimmer of gold peeping out of the dirt from under where the wires had been. I removed the ring and carefully replaced the wires, with shouts of joy coming from them both. They asked that I did not identify them, but I will say they were very happy that the ring was found, and I will vouch for their smiles. It was explained to me that their rings had been sent to Brazil to be blessed by a priest before the wedding, and specially engraved, so how do you replace that? Another great day!

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Mission Viejo, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Anna last Wednesday for a lost diamond wedding ring. When I spoke to her, I asked the most important questions, and when done it was decided that the ring should be in the yard where she had been sitting with her husband. She had given the ring to her husband while they were visiting her cousin. When the day was done, she asked her husband for the ring, and it was gone. I arranged to meet the next morning to do a good thorough search.

When I got to the house, Anna’s cousin showed me the area which was a pretty good patch of grass which could hide a ring easily. I proceeded to search, and searched the whole area only finding some bottle caps. I went and got another detector with a better recovery, and searched it again, nothing. I knew the ring was not in that yard. Anna’s cousin had left for work, and Anna’s God Daughter stayed with me, also named Anna. I spoke to young Anna, and explained that there was no way the ring was in that yard, and that we should back track every where they had been the other day. She showed me a patch of grass that led to the pool, which seemed like a good search. I began my search there, and had it almost complete, when Anna’s God Daughter came running up saying she found it! There in her hand was a beautiful 3 diamond ring. She had taken my advice to retrace their steps, and while I was searching the grass, she went to where they had been parked 3 days earlier, and there on the asphalt under a car was Anna’s ring. Amazing! Sometimes we can help by just thinking things through for people. I have helped people find their rings just by talking them through the loss, and it ends in the same way, joy for the person who thought that what they had lost for good was found again.

Diamond Wedding Band Lost at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned!

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was on the road last night about 9:20 PM when I received a call from Chelsey. She had lost her wedding band at the beach earlier in the day. She had gone surfing, and wisely took her ring off and left it in her beach bag. When she and her family were getting ready to leave she noticed that another piece of her jewelry had fallen from the bag. She then picked up her towel, and shook the sand from it, the ring was gone. I wasn’t far from the beach, and told her I could be there in 20 minutes, she needed more time, as she was at dinner with her family, so we arranged to meet at 10:15 PM at the beach.

I was waiting as Chelsey and her family rolled up. There was about 7 of them, and we all made our way down to the spot of the loss. Well it was dark now, which made it harder to judge landmarks, so we had to widen the search area. The other problem was that the tide was super high, and as I searched the water would come up and wipe out my grid lines, so I had to pay close attention to where I had already searched in order to cover the area correctly. Chelsey and her family also brought along lights, sifters and colanders to continue the search they had begun earlier. The humor entered into it for me as I looked around, yet I did not say anything until the ring was found, that it looked like a Paleontology convention as everyone was spread around on the sand with their lights and sifters delicately searching for Chelsey’s ring.

I searched for about an hour, moving further out, and closer to the water than they had told me, and could see at times that there was concern that I should be staying in the area they felt sure of, and I understand that feeling. I have been doing this long enough though to know that sometimes the ring isn’t always where the person thinks it is, so I usually persist, and work out of the box, or color outside of the lines so to speak. Well I decided to work much closer to the edge of the slope down to the water when I got a real good signal in the head phones. I dug, and in the scoop was Chelsey’s ring; 11:30 PM. I lifted it up, and was immediately stormed by the entire family, who lined up to give me a hug. WHAT GREAT JOY RESTORED! What a great opportunity to be a help; love it!

Gold Masonic Ring Lost at County Line Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was on my back home from finding the earring earlier when I received a call from Jeff. He had been surfing, but had brought the ring he had received from his late grandfather with him. So as not to lose it he put in his tight fitting wet suit. He came out of the water and began to remove the wet suit, when the ring popped out and landed in the sand. He searched for about an hour, but was unable to find it. He then searched the internet, and found me. I was about an hour away, and told him I was on my way. He had time constraints, seeing his friend was getting married tomorrow, and he had to be at the rehearsal later in the evening.

When I got there Jeff led me down to the spot of the loss. He had piled stones to mark it, and it assured me that we would be able to make a quick recovery. I could see that some of the shrubbery had been moved around, and the sand had been piled up in the center of the area. I proceeded to search where Jeff thought the ring may have landed. It wasn’t there, so I worked my way back. I searched the pile of sand where it looked like Jeff had done most of his  own searching, it wasn’t there either. I then started to work back almost behind where he had been standing when I received a good repeatable signal, dug once and missed it, dug a second time and in my scoop was a nice big gold Masonic ring, the ring he found among his grandfather’s belongings after he had passed away. This was so important to Jeff, a precious memory of his late grandfather, who he had just found out was a Mason , which also meant a lot to Jeff. I could tell the pride he had for his grandfather, and this made for a wonderful recovery. Also he still had time to make the rehearsal.

Tiny Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Backyard in Los Angeles, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

Lisa called last night wondering if I would be able to find her daughter’s diamond stud earring. I inquired as to where and how it was lost, and of course how long ago. Apparently her daughter was playing volley ball in the back yard when she went up against the net. At that time her earring hooked in the net and pulled off of her ear. She saw it fly off and land in the grass, but found searching for it an effort in futility. The loss happened about 45 minutes before Lisa’s daughter found me on the Internet, and the call was made. We arranged to meet today at about 11:30 AM.

I arrived just a bit early, and was able to park and enjoy the coffee I bought at the fast food restaurant on the way. I called Lisa to let her know I was outside. She led me to the area of the loss. They had cordoned off the area her daughter saw the earring fly into with volley balls (nice touch). The thatch was good and thick, perfect for hiding jewelry. I then asked to see the twin to the lost one. When Lisa showed it to me, I got a bit concerned; it was so small my pin pointer could only barely pick it up if I touched it, and my detector could only pick it up at about 1 inch. I proceeded real low and slow checking every faint sound. I then got a nice faint repeatable  signal, and went in with the pin pointer and my fingers, gently moving the grass around when I saw the thin pin shaped shank of the earring. I grabbed it, held it up, and handed it to a very surprised Lisa. This was a very precious item for her daughter, and she was very happy to know she would be able give it back to her. A real nice beginning of the day.

Wedding Ring Lost in Panorama City, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Joe this morning explaining how he had lost his wedding ring while washing his car yesterday, hoping I would be available to help him. He told me that the grass was  very deep, and to find the ring in that thatch was not something he was able to do. We arranged to meet at his house at 12:30 PM to conduct the search.

When I arrived I could see that the grass was deep, and definitely a good set up for my AT Pro with the 5×8 coil. A few passes around the area of the wash, with no ring, then time to move out. I was only working the edges Joe had shown me, ready to expand into the main lawn are if necessary, when I received a great hit in the head phones. I grabbed my Pro Pointer AT, stuck it in the grass, and pulled out Joe’s ring. I was able to hand him back his token of commitment which he wasn’t sure would be found again. His wife Sarah came out excited that the ring had been found. That is when I found out they had just been married 6 months ago. So precious is the ring with such a fresh memory, what a great day!

Intertwined Platinum and Gold Wedding Ring Lost at Zuma Malibu Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

While out detecting today I received a call from Ian who told me how he had lost his wedding ring after surfing yesterday, and wanted help in finding it. I arranged to meet his employee Dave in about 1 1/2 hours because of Los Angeles traffic. Ian and Dave had been surfing yesterday, but before they entered the water Ian realized he still had his ring on, so prudentially he removed it and put in his tight fitting wetsuit and went into the water. After a good session of gliding on the water, he got back to the car, and proceeded to take off the wetsuit forgetting for a moment that the ring was there. It didn’t take long for him to realize that it had disappeared into the beach sands.

Well I met Dave at the appointed spot, and he showed me where they thought it might have fallen. I then got to work, finding bottle caps and other pieces of metal. It took about 10 minutes, and then there was that sound I was expecting. Dave had done well to put me in the right spot, which saved time in the search. he told me that Ian had been distraught over the loss, so I knew there would be joy in his house tonight, and sweet sleep. So happy to be of service, and to supply joy to those who have lost the things that mean so much.

Ian sent the following testimonial:

Greetings,

My wife and I would like to thank you so much for finding my lost wedding ring. After getting out of the ocean at Zuma Beach I completely forgot that I had put my ring inside my wetsuit. I stripped off my wetsuit while standing in very deep sand despite all kinds of instinctual internal voices telling me that I should be peeling on a better surface. Hours later my wife asked me how my surf session was and I realized that I had no ring on. The evening had set and I knew that I was going to be unable to seek out my ring. Fortunately my good friend Dave volunteered the next day to put some energy into trying to find what truly was a needle in a haystack. After his searching and scooping the area that I hoped I had dropped my ring, I had given up. Then Dave asked, “What about Ring Finders.com?” A few minutes later I was speaking to Steve who generously volunteered to go to Zuma Beach after he finished a search in Venice for a misplaced phone. It took Steve less than 5 minutes to find my ring nearly a foot beneath the surface of the sand.
Angels come in many forms and I feel truly blessed to have encountered such an amazing and generous soul.
My ring is a matching ring to my wife’s and it’s loss would have been sad. We have always told our 2 children that they will each inherit one so thank you, thank you, thank you.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Cemetery in Valencia, CA…Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I received a call from Arvin last night asking if I would be able to help find a lost diamond stud earring in a cemetery. I told him I would help him only after we went to the main office, and received permission to do the search. I did let him know ahead of time, that diamond stud earrings are one of the hardest pieces of jewelry to find, because they are made with such a small amount of metal. We agreed to meet today at about 3:00 PM.

When we met, Arvin’s wife Larraine explained that it was their daughter Lauren who had lost the earring. Lauren’s grandmother had given her those earrings, so there was a very strong sentimental value attached to the missing jewelry. Larraine, Lauren and I went to the office where they explained what had happened, and I said that I would only be there for that particular search and then leave, so the manager gave us the go ahead for the search. When Arvin took us to the area, he and Lauren showed me the boundaries, and explained that Lauren had been holding her baby brother while the family were paying respects to Larraine’s grandparents. While Lauren had her brother, he reached up out of curiosity, grabbed her earring, and pulled it right out of her ear. She reached up, and all she had was the back stuck to her ear. They checked the brother’s hand, no earring. They checked the mat Lauren was sitting on, no earring. They then deducted that it had fallen into the thick grass. The family had searched for the earring for 2 days without success, so Lauren went to the internet, and found me on The Ring Finders site.

I began by testing my equipment on the remaining earring, and was able to get about 1 to 1 1/2 inches on the detector. I then checked my pin pointer, and it had to touch the earring in order to get a response, so I knew I had to pin point well with my detector. I was receiving many signals, many were too strong, but checked them all. I searched the original area I was shown, but did not find it. Then moved a few feet lower, and received a faint signal. I put the pin pointer in the thick grass, and got a response. I kept the pin pointer in the grass as I moved the grass around. I could hear the pin pointer, and was looking at the earring which I could barely see in the dirt below the grass, but there it was. I grabbed it by the shank, brought it up, and held it out for Lauren, she and her father were totally surprised. One of the hardest items to recover, found and returned. Needless to say, we all felt real good at that moment.

Lauren sent the attached testimonial:

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 I lost my diamond stud earring in the grass at Eternal Valley Cemetery. My little brother accidentally took it off my ear and it fell somewhere. We looked for two days but we couldn’t find it. On Monday, May 1, 2017 that night I searched up on google how to find an earring in the grass” and that’s where I found out about this website called, The Ring Finders. I read through the website and it said something about someone being able to find their diamond stud earring, in the grass with the help of whoever is in charge of this website. I looked for more information and then I read a name. Steve. And so I assumed that he was in charge of this website. And I was right. His number was there, so I tried calling him. We arranged a meeting for the next day, May 2, 2017 and that’s on a Wednesday. At 3pm. At first, I was hesitant. Although I’ve read his blogs about him being able to help some people, I was still a little worried. I thought, would he really be able to help us look for my earring? Because I know we’ve looked for two days and we didn’t find it. But I took my chances. I knew that diamond earring had a sentimental value to me, so I just hoped he would be able to help us. And he did! It took him an hour and I almost thought he would never find it, but he did. He found it. We were all so happy. My parents, and especially me. It was really unexpected, but with the help of Steve and his equipments, my earring was found. I can attest to this event, and I am a witness that The Ring Finders is legit.

Sincerely, 

Lauren
