I was contacted by Joe because he had been out body boarding 3 days before, and while out in the water lost his wedding ring. He was having to leave for his home up North in a couple of days. I did not have a lot of hope for this situation, but when we hung up I looked at the tide charts and realized it would be a negative low tide early in the morning. I called back to let Joe know I would attempt a search beginning at about 11:00 PM working into the early morning while the tide was going down. Still it had been 3 days, and he did not know how deep he had been when the ring came off, but he was able to narrow down the stretch of beach he had been on while he was enjoying the day. I readied myself, rested up, and got down to do the search at about 11:00 PM.

There was a nice open swath of sand to search due to the diminishing tide, so the search began at the edge on one side of the area. There was a lot of sand, and very few targets while the search went on. Back and forth over about 100 feet of sand, and silence. Then a signal, the scoop went in, and there was a ring, a Irish type Claddagh ring. Joe had not described the ring to me, so I had to contact him to find out if I had found his ring, it was not his. The search continued, and Joe sent a picture of his ring, a white gold band with beveled edges. Then I found another ring, a child’s diamond looking wedding band made out of very cheap metal, not Joe’s. Pass after pass working up the slope, and silence, then another signal, scooped, turned the head light on, and in the scoop was a Joe’s ring, 12:00 AM. I contacted Joe, and he came out to meet right away to get his lost ring back which I am sure he thought he would never see again. I think his smile says it all.

Neill called about his lost ring. He had been throwing a ball with friends when during a throw he felt his ring come off of his finger. It was a custom ring he had made in Japan, so it had significant sentimental value to him. He and his friends searched for what seemed to be easily found, but were unable to find it. I was available, and let him know I would come immediately.

When I got to the beach I found Neill, and he took me out to the area of the loss. He showed me what had happened, and replayed the motion of when the ring came off. After setting up the equipment, began a tight grid to insure not missing the ring. I made about 5 passes within their original search area, and then began to work outside that perimeter when a nice signal came through the head phones. I put the scoop in, and came up with a solid silver ring. I reached in and held it up for Neill who came over elated that it had been found. this made for the great end of the day.

Aidan contacted me about looking for a special necklace he had lost earlier that day. It was now about 8:00 PM, and I know the county cleans the beach regularly, so I asked him if he would be able to meet me there to show me where he had been when the loss occurred. He said he would check with his mom for a ride as he was coming from Pasadena which is about 30 miles from the beach. He called back to let me know that his mom was more than willing to give the ride, so I agreed to meet them as soon as they could get there.

It was about 9:45 PM when we all got there. Aidan was there with his mom and brother, and he walked me out to the area he had been. He showed me where he had set his things, so I began my grid. Pass after pass, and nothing. Not even very much trash metal. He then said that his friend had moved their stuff to the other side of the Lifeguard tower, so it might have fallen along the way. He then went over to the other side, and asked if I would come over there as well. I did while working in the area they had possibly walked, nothing. He showed me the new area, and I began a new grid. As I searched Aidan walked out over to the bathrooms where the showers were, but I plugged on. Pass after pass, then a really good signal, I scooped, and there in the bottom was a chain with some items attached, it was about 11:00 PM. I looked, and Aidan was pretty far from me, but his mother was on the other side of the tower, so I walked over to her, and said that I think we have looked long enough, and that they should get on their way home. She looked at me with resignation until held my hand out with Aidan’s necklace in it. When she saw it she just ran off yelling for him saying he found it, he found it! I found out that two of those pendants were given him by his mom, one at birth, and the other on another special occasion. The little soccer shoe was given him by a friend who had got it in Italy just a couple of weeks before. What great way to end a day!

I got a desperate call from Jake who had driven up from San Diego to surf the infamous Wedge in Newport Beach. He had worn his ring that was made by his great great grandfather, and had been handed down from generation to generation. Before he went into the water he put the ring in his shorts so that it would not be lost in the pounding surf that day. I let him know that I would be there as soon as possible, and was on my way.

When I got there Jake was worried because the tide was coming in and beginning to wash over the area he had originally put his belongings. It did not look too bad, so I reassured him that if it was lost there it should still be there. I began my search where he had first been, and worked my way out the way he had left the beach. I was finding a few items, mostly metal trash. I continued my grid working back and forth across where he had walked. I kept working finding more metal trash as I got further from the water, but no ring. It wasn’t until I got to almost where he was seated on a light post foundation that I got a signal, dug and saw a ring in the scoop. I could see that it was unique, so I closed it in my hand and asked Jake if he could tell me what the ring looked like. He gave an exact description, then I held my hand out and opened it to his excited surprise. He was able to drive back home with the comfort of having this precious heirloom back on his finger. Love to see those smiles!

Got a call the other night from Lucas about a lost ring. It had happened that day, and he was still at the beach, so I arranged to meet him for a search as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach Lucas was waiting for me, and walked me out to the search area. As we walked he informed me that the ring was not his, but a friend’s. As we got close to the area of the loss Lucas introduced me to Josh the gentleman who lost the ring. Josh is a pastor of a local church, and had “Church on the Beach” that day. When the service was finished Josh grabbed his backpack to which he had attached his wedding ring, and somehow his ring fell off the clip it was hooked to. He and his parishioners searched diligently for the ring without success. I turned my detector on and began my grid. One pass, then another, one more and the sound I was waiting for, right in the area they had been searching. I dug, looked in my scoop, and to everyone’s surprise, pulled out Josh’s Ring. Everyone was very excited at the return, as was I. It is always exciting when I have successful recovery.

I was doing some shopping in Costco when I received a call from Igor. It seems he had lost a ring, and was hoping I was available to help him. I let him know what I was doing, but told him that as soon as I was finished, and got the food home I would come to help. That sounded good to him, so I would let him know when I was coming.

When I got to his office area Igor showed me where he believed the loss occurred, and showed me what he did to make the ring come off of his finger. He also said that he had purchased a detector to find the ring, but to no avail. The loss happened about 3 weeks prior, but was in such an area that it was sure to still be there. The area was covered with a good cover of ivy and dead leaves. There were some metal objects,and wires that had to worked around, but there was not too many other metal signals coming from the search. I covered all of the area that Igor had shown me with no luck. With experience I have learned that rings do not do what they appear to do, but sometimes the opposite, so it was time to work out of the box. I began to search behind where he thought the ring went, and got a good signal, reached down with the trusty pin pointer finding Igor’s ring. He was very happy as this was given to him from his wife just a couple months ago. It was sure nice to make his day.

Igor sent the following testimonial:

Jewelry is about many things, not just about a monetary value of it. Most often, it signifies important moments in our lives, and treasured memories, that mean to us more than just a price tag.
I am so thankful to Steve for the selfless service that he provides to make people happy! He found my ring, that meant a lot to me, and interestingly enough, now memory of his help is a part of this ring story as well…
Thank you so much for rescuing my little treasure, and all the best to you!
Igor A. Len

Molly called me to report that she had lost 2 rings in the sand at the beach, and wanted to know if I was available to help her find them. I let her know that I was immediately available and would leave as soon as I could get my equipment together.

When I got there I thought I recognized her, and she let me know that I had found the engagement ring for her last year at another beach. I then remembered the search, and the ring. She and her husband Jay walked me over to the area where they believed the loss occurred, and I set up for a search. Just 3 swings of the coil and I scooped up the yellow gold ring. Now for the engagement ring. It was a fine band with a solitaire diamond. I went over the area but did not hear the ring. I went out of the box in searching, but still no ring. I knew the ring had to be there, so it was time to cross grid the area. I made pass after pass, and then a soft whisper of a signal entered my head phones. I scooped, and there it was, Molly’s diamond solitaire engagement ring. This type of ring sometimes does what is called parachuting, and this makes the ring harder to find. I believe this is what happened, and is why a cross grid search is so important if the item is not found the first time through. Because this was the second time she lost her ring Molly was a bit embarrassed to have her full picture taken, but did allow me to show her holding her rings. It feels good to be able to save the day for people.

Annette called me in the morning asking if I could help in finding a lost wedding ring. I was available and the fact that it was at the beach she identified I was concerned about a recovery because the loss happened the day before. I explained the possibilities to her of it being gone because of the County beach sifters and other detectorists, but let her know that we should go in the morning before the beach packs out. She agreed, and we decided to meet there as soon as possible.

I met Annette, and her husband Chris at the beach. Well wouldn’t you know, we got down there and the spot they said they believed the loss occurred was occupied by a big group of families with small children. We asked if they would mind if we worked around them, and they said it would be fine. It was rather difficult because of all the metal chairs, sport bottles, and metal toys scattered all around the area, but I gave it a good old effort with no luck. Chris and Annette had to leave, so I told them I would finish the area where the people were as much as was possible without asking them to move all of their stuff, as well as some of the other possible areas they pointed out. I let them know that if it wasn’t where I was able to look, I would come back later in the evening when everyone had left the beach. I did not find it, so I came back at 8:30 PM, and within 10 minutes had Chris’ ring in my scoop. We decided to meet at a park to make the return which I was able to do to 2 very happy people. Another great day!

I received an afternoon text from Brock as he was out on the beach on the 4th of July. He was out enjoying the day when he noticed his wedding ring was gone. He said he and his friends searched for it, but were unable to find it. He had not left the area, and I told him that if he stayed, and secured the area, I would come and do a search for him; he agreed.

I knew that parking was going to be a problem on this day, one of the busiest beach days of the year, so I brought along my trusty Brompton folding bicycle in case I had to park far away. Well lucky for me that I brought the bike because I had to park about 2 miles away, but no problem. I put the equipment I needed into a bag, and slung it over my shoulder as I rode to the search area. When I got to the site and met with Brock, I folded the bike, putting it into a bag that I could shoulder and we walked out over the sand to do the search. When we got there he showed me where he thought the ring went. I got my equipment ready, and proceeded to search. Two passes later, and his ring was in my scoop. He was so happy explaining that he had only been married one month wherein I assured him that the finding of the ring will insure him of at least another month of marriage🙂 We talked a bit after, then I got on my bike and rode back to my vehicle. What a great day!

Brock sent the following testimonial:

Hi Steve,
Thanks again for the major save yesterday!
Here’s a short review about my experience:
“It was the Fourth of July, and as I sat back in beach chair I came to the realization that my 1 month old wedding ring was gone. I spent the next hour searching the sand in the immediate area to no avail. A google search for metal detecting services led me to Steve, who would turn out to be my savior.
A quick text and Steve was on his way to keep me out of the doghouse. Steve was polite, prompt, and found my ring in less than five minutes (realistically probably less than two minutes). I was ecstatic. I could not have asked for a better solution. Steve and I ruminated on lost jewelry and surfing, and then went our separate ways. I would highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in dire straits, on your hands and knees, desperately searching for your lost jewelry.”
Best,
Brock

I got a call from Nick the morning of the 4th of July asking for help in finding his wedding ring that he had lost the day before at the beach. Well I let him know about the County’s meticulous cleaning procedures, but told him I would meet him later in the evening to do the search because I knew the beach would be filling up in the morning and during the day, and someone might park on top of the area which could hinder a thorough search. I figured if we got there after everyone left we would have the whole area to ourselves, and I could grid to my heart’s desire.

I met Nick at the arranged spot at 10:00 PM, and he took me out to the area he had been in the day before. Right away my expectations were buoyed as looked around and realized the machines had not gone through that morning. I asked Nick to show me the boundaries of  the area they had been in, and began my search. This beach is extremely clean of metal trash, and I got very few signals. It is like a desert of metal. I got a key, a penny, and a piece of foil, but I maintained my grid, pass after pass; silence. Then after about 30 minutes a good solid sound in the head phones. I dug, and a nice silver colored platinum ring was in my scoop. I had my back to Nick at the time so I looked inside and saw there was an inscription with 2 initials with a heart between them, one of the initials being an “N”, I knew this was the ring. I turned and walked over to him with the ring in my hand. I then asked inquisitively if there were any engravings in his ring. He said there were, and told me what they were. As he was explaining to me I held out his ring in the light of my headlight, and when he saw it he was in total disbelief. He told me he had only been married for 2 months; whew! What a great ending to a great day! My bad on his picture.

Nick sent the following testimonial:

To whom It may concern, I write my client testimonial for Steve Smith of Ring Finders, who found my lost wedding ring on July 4th 2022….

I was out celebrating the Independence day weekend with my new wife of two months and friends on the beach. A beautiful day was had enjoying the wonderful weather. Only once sat at home and about to start a film did I realise my wedding band had come off my fingers. A small breakdown and copious amounts of anxiety ensued and the following morning, frantic messages to social media were posted. A kindly neighbour posted about Steve the ring finder and I called him up. Despite it being July the 4th he kindly agreed to meet that evening due to time being of the essence.
We met at 10 pm once all the fireworks had died down, and Steve got to work. He was meticulous and methodical and to my utter amazement, he found my band. Need to mention again this was all in the PITCH DARK. I was amazed, and I honestly can speak highly enough of both Steve and his work. He’s a true gentleman and very skilled. I sit here typing this testimonial with not only my ring on my finger, but a smile on my face. Steve, you legend.
– There you go!
Thanks again and I hope you have a great week
Nick
