Lauren’s parents had passed down their wedding rings to Lauren to be used for her marriage next week. The unique gold ring that her father had worn for over 35 years was lost three hours after they gave them to her. Lauren had put both rings on her fingers till she could put them in a safe place. 

She was at her new home that was in the process of being remodeled when her whole day turned into panic. Her project for the day was to organize some of the boxes stored in the garage. Also, unpack a few of the boxes of items to go into kitchen cupboards. We also had an area of the front yard where she had removed some weeds.

Timing was important because Lauren was able to recall most of the places she had been. We did a quick grid of the front yard where I could use my big metal detector. Then the kitchen area boxes and wrapping where I could use the handheld pinpointer metal detector. Last place was the garage that had 30 or 40 boxes plus the floor area around them. Starting at one side, we opened each box and it was helpful that Lauren could remember the boxes she didn’t open. 

The ring showed up in a box of halloween decorations that she had searched without success before calling me. It was great to see how happy she was and the look of relief on her face. We definitely saved many hours of grief if it wasn’t found. It could have been next Halloween till she opened this box again. I was kind of hopeful that the ring would show up inside one of the boxes as this has been the action in past searches that caused rings to slip from fingers.

Kim and Alex were visiting Santa Monica beach while on vacation from New Jersey. Alex handed his wedding ring to Kim to hold so he could do a short workout on the athletic rings. Shortly after that she dropped the platinum wedding band in the sand. It disappeared immediately and their attempts to find it were unsuccessful.

Alex had tried to ask some of the local businesses if there was any place to rent a metal detector. Someone told him to google search TheRingFinders.com .  I was in my car on the freeway when I got the call from Alex. After hearing what had happened, I asked if they could stay at the location and assured him that we could find it if they could stay there. I was able to get there 45 minutes later and found a parking less than a block away. ( that’s a miracle).

The rest of the story was simple. Timing and the fact they could stay at the location made it easy to find the ring. It took me longer to turn on and setup my detector than it did to actually find the ring. Losing a ring in the sand can be frustrating if you don’t have the right tool to find it. Also there are search areas can be littered with other metal trash. I have done searches where a dozen  people have spent hours searching with sifting tools and cheap detectors and couldn’t find the lost ring. I’m sure there are many times when people walk away thinking it was lost forever. They don’t know that TheRingFinders is a world wide directory of metal detector specialists with experience finding and returning sentimental keepsakes.

Alex told me the wedding ring was special to him because  it was made by his father who is a jeweler and he has worn it daily since his marriage.

Ryan and Anna had been married one day when Anna accidentally dropped Ryan’s gold wedding band in the sand. Ryan has given Anna his ring for safekeeping while he went swimming in the ocean at Laguna Beach, CA.

After futile attempts to find the ring by several people it was looking like the ring may be lost forever. I’m sure Anna felt guilty for losing the ring. Anna called her father, David for ideas of how to find the ring. David was able to search on line coming up with my contact information on TheRingFinders.com website.

I was in my car, on my way to metal detect on another beach. David told me what beach the his daughter and new son in-law were. He was also on his way to help. 

We met a half hour later at Cress St. Beach. Walking down to the beach took longer than the time it took to find the ring. It’s nice to get these type searches now and then. Timing was important to make this a successful search. 

These fast searches don’t happen often. I have had several searches lately that have taken more than 4 or 5 hours. When the ring is not there it can take many hours to eliminate possible hiding places. 

It was a pleasure to help this  newly wedded couple find this ring,
especially while they are still celebrating their marriage. It was also nice to meet David, who was proud to have a part of finding someone with a metal detector.

Bill gave his wife, Taylor his white gold wedding ring to hold while he went swimming in the bay at Newport Beach, CA.  Sometime during the next couple hours she had lost the ring, but they didn’t realize it was lost until they returned home. This was exactly what happened about six weeks ago, when I was able to find the same ring in the surf at a San Clemente, CA.

This time Bill knew to call me that night as soon as could. We set up a time when he could get away from his job at lunch break the next day. The area they had been that day was approximately 40 feet square. Then there was the walk to the car, something like 100 yards across the sand.

Bill had to return to work which didn’t bother me. I had what information l needed and I could take my time to do a thorough grid search. 

The beach was very clean without bothersome bottle caps and pull tabs. I was nearing the end of the main search location and it looked like my next grid would be the long walk to the parking lot. Then the sweet tone of a gold ring in my headphones. Boom! a quick dig and I had Bills wedding ring in my scoop.

Just as I was getting ready to send Bill the good news I received a text from him ..  “ Any luck? If not please forget about it.” ..  I texted Bill a photo of the ring and he called right away. It was nice to hear the joy in his voice. I was able to hold his ring for more than a week, until he was could pick it up. It’s always great to see the smile and the eyes light up when you hand the ring back to the person that thought it was lost forever.

Laura had lost her wedding ring in her front yard. After returning from her OB doctor where he recommended she not wear her ring as her fingers were beginning to swell. Laura temporally put her wedding ring on her smaller finger.

Later that day she had been standing on her front porch shaking a blanket when the ring went flying off her finger. She was several months pregnant which made it difficult to search for the ring. Then she remembered seeing recommendations for TheRingFinders on line from people on her local community forum.

I was able to meet Laura at her home on Mission Viejo shortly after her call. Even though it was a small search area, it took about 45 minutes to locate the small wedding ring. I typically do a thorough scan with my detector. The I visually search the sidewalk and porch area. Lastly, I get out the hand held pinpointer detector to get the areas underneath plants and up next to metal objects.

The ring was found visually a couple inches from a metal post that masked any signal of the ring. If you rent a metal detector they don’t tell you about electrical interference, other metal trash and most the time rental people don’t know how to use the detector. Also, the quality of the detectors leave a lot to be desired. 

Laura was ecstatic to get her ring back. It had a long history including having to be cut off her finger several years ago when she with her last pregnancy.

Todd was bodysurfing while on a vacation. As he was coming out of the water he shook his hand and his gold wedding ring went directly into water. It was high tide and he was in about a foot of water. 

Todd gave up hope of finding his ring feeling it was lost forever. He and his wife had taken a walk. He was upset about loosing the ring. As they past a local jewelry store his wife suggested they look for a replacement. They decided to buy a new ring but they didn’t have a size 11. After telling the story about losing the ring in the surf, the person that was helping them gave Todd my contact information.

I met Todd at 7pm as the tide was receding. He put me in the general area. I could not locate the ring and it was not worth risking searching in the rough surf. I decided to wait for the lower tide. Returning three hours later with a Pulse Induction Metal Detector that has the ability to get targets deeper in the soft sand.

After an hour of grid searching the ring had not showed. My next plan was to cross grid swinging very slow. I got the faintest of sound in my earphones. It was more like a break in the threshold. After digging a deep hole in the damp sand, Todd’s gold ring showed up in my sand scoop. It’s difficult to understand how deep this ring was after only 6 hours. We have many miles of beach in Southern California with all types of sand conditions. I have recovered many rings only a few inches deep after several days. Sand conditions can be a problem but there is always a better chance to find a ring that was lost at a higher tide. Finding a ring in a lake or bay can be easier if there isn’t too much metal trash and if it was lost in water less than shoulder deep. 

Todd and his wife were flying home to Idaho the next morning. I was able to meet them to return the ring just before they left for the airport. It’s always nice to see the happiness and smiles when returning a ring that is so sentimental to someone that has worn it daily for more than 20 years.

Raul called asking for my help to find his wife’s platinum/ diamond and blue sapphire ring lost in the dry sand in Laguna Beach, CA. His wife Marisa had been sitting on the board walk with her feet touching the sand. She removed her wedding ring and it slipped from her grip falling out of site.

They spent a lot of time searching in the small area of sand. They panicked when the ring eluded them. They feared that the ring may have dropped between the wooden planks of the boardwalk. If the ring went under the the boardwalk it would not be accessible without major removal of sand.

I set up my metal detector and told them to cross their  fingers hoping that it was not under the boardwalk. It was a quick recovery, actually under Marisa’s foot in the sand. They had done everything right. Marisa had stayed in the location of the loss and Raul had got on line finding my contact information. Total time from when Raul called was less than 45 minutes including 7 miles drive, finding a parking spot on Sunday and a short two block walk.

One small note about this type search is the puzzled look you get when you find a small item so easily right in front of where they had been searching. “ Using The Right Tool For The Right Job “ .. Also knowing how to operate the metal detector. 

It’s always a pleasure to help reunite such sentimental keepsakes with the owner. It’s also hard to put in words the joy of seeing the happiness that people express at the moment the item is found.

When Cindy and her family went to Ponce Beach in San Clemente on a Sunday afternoon, Cindy put her rose gold wedding ring set in the pocket of her shorts for safekeeping. After returning home that afternoon she discovered the rings were not in her shorts pocket.

Her and the family returned to the beach later that evening attempting to find the rings in the sand. There were several places that the rings could have fallen out of the pocket but the most likely was at the beach where she had taken off her shorts to go swimming.

Monday afternoon Cindy contacted me, asking for help. She said that either her husband or herself could meet me the next morning to show me the location. After discussing the location, I felt I could go by myself with the screen shot photo Cindy had marked and sent to my phone. I know how difficult it is for a mother with two young children to leave the house and why should her husband lose part of a days work. Time is important especially in public places.

Ponce Beach is about 20 miles drive for me and I was there an hour after talking to Cindy. Walking to the marked location she had given me, I could see finger drag marks in the sand. It only took a short time to find the two beautiful rings. We were lucky that this beach doesn’t have daily beach sifting machines. Also, that the rings were hiding in sand and not in plain site in the parking lot.  I was able to call Cindy and I drove closer to where they live to return the rings that same evening.

Lisa and her friends had taken their you kids to Balboa Island for a few hours at the beach. There are several small beaches on the inter bay where the water is free of waves and it is not windy.

The children were getting tired after a few hours, so they prepared to return home. That’s when Lisa realized her platinum and diamond wedding ring was missing from her finger. It had to be in the dry sand because she had not been in the water. Everyone searched for the ring with no success. 

It was getting frustrating with the kids getting tired and hungry. Lisa called her husband, Ryan. He was at work where he couldn’t leave so he went online where he found my contact information. I was in my car with  my detectors when he called. It was a coincidence that I was less than a mile from where Lisa was waiting for help to find her precious wedding ring.

We met and it was a matter of a few minutes till my metal detector was able to locate her ring. I have a lot of respect for mothers of young children. It was a pleasure to help Lisa find her ring and get on her way to get the kids home for their lunch and afternoon nap.

Lisa was a little camera shy so I got to pose for photo with the ring for the book of smiles.

Stephanie is from Utah, visiting family here in Laguna Beach, CA. They spent the day at 1000 Steps Beach. Where she had placed her Rose Gold Engagment Ring in her backpack. After leaving the beach returning home she could not find the ring. They returned to the beach that evening to search for the ring with no success. Making it more difficult she was not sure that the ring had been pulled out of the backpack.

 I received a call from Stephanie late that evening just before the beach closed. This beach is gated and closed from 10pm till 6am which made me put off the search till the next morning. She would not be able to meet me at the location because she would be driving back to Utah that day. We spent a few minutes on the phone where Stephanie gave me simple directions to the place they had been that day. 

I was on the beach early the next morning. After the first hour it was not looking like the ring could be found. Before giving up I was able to talk to Stephanie’s brother on my cellphone. He clarified the location and it only took another 15 minutes till I got the gold tone in my earphones. There in my sand scoop was a beautiful diamond engagement ring.

Texted a photo of the ring to Stephanie who was on the road near Las Vegas, NV. It’s awesome that we have the internet and cellphones that make a difference when it comes to finding sentimental items like wedding rings, etc. successful. Her brother and sister in law met me about noon to get the ring. Which they were able to take to Stephanie the next week when they had scheduled a vacation to Utah. 

It has happened several times over the past several years where rings get pulled out of beach bags or backpacks and end up lost in the sand. We had to try this search even though she didn’t see the ring fall into the sand. I knew we had a chance that the ring was lost in that location. This time it was a successful find.
