*** Sergio spent two weeks searching his backyard lawn for his platinum wedding band. It was lost while he was cleaning his barbecue equipment on the lawn. 

I met Sergio at his home in Whittier, CA. the next morning after he called me. After walking into the back yard, he showed me where he had taken his ring off, setting it on a work table. Later his son came out to help his dad clean up. Sergio asked him to  spray off the barbecue grates, etc. which were on the same table as his ring.

Later that night Sergio realized that he didn’t have his ring on. Remembering that it was on the work table, he knew it must be in lawn. Using a flashlight in the dark the ring was not found that night. A couple days later he tried using a metal detector which was also unsuccessful. His last attempt was to pull all the grass from a 20 ft. x 20ft. area. After all that, he called me.

I grid searched the whole lawn several times with out getting a decent signal. Then used my detector to scan 4 bags of clumps of grass that had been pulled from the lawn. 

We had another talk about what other items may have been in the work area. As it could be possible the ring may have fallen into, then moved somewhere on the cement patio. Also the possibility the ring could have may have landed on the cement, rolling under or into another item on the patio. 

As a last resort we began a visual search. Boom! the ring was sitting in plain site on a shelf of one of three barbecues. It was 40ft. away from the location were Sergio had believed the loss occurred. The ring had been sitting there for two weeks, long enough to gather a ring of dust on the shelf where it had laid waiting to be found.

Sergio said he was surprised where the ring was found and couldn’t understand how it ended up in that spot. Nothing surprises me anymore about where these rings are found.

I dropped a ring in my kitchen, heard it hit the floor. Two weeks later I found it in my slippers which I had moved to the bedroom. I’m supposed to be a ring finder, two weeks?

Wife Loses Husband’s Hierloom Gold Diamond Ring in City Lake .. Lawndale, CA. .. Los Angeles County

*** Memo called me, telling me his wife was upset because she had lost a ring in a city lake while feeding ducks. I assumed she had lost her ring but she had actually lost an hierloom ring that was Memo’s. A ring that had belonged to his father that was given to him by his late father.

The day of the loss, Joanna had taken the ring to have it cleaned. On her way home she stopped by the city park lake to feed the ducks. She was wearing the ring on her finger because she thought it was safest place to keep it. As she was feeding the ducks she felt the ring slip off her finger and heard it splash in the lake.

That night Memo returned to the lake with a flashlight spending a couple hours hoping he could recover the ring. The next day he had  a guy with a metal detector search the area without success.

I met Memo and Joanna the third day after the loss of his very sentimental ring. They were upset and losing hope of ever finding this ring. It was helpful to have Joanna there to show me the place she had been standing and how she was gently tossing bread crumbs with a underhand motion.

The lake has a cement bottom without metal rebar which was a good thing. On the other hand the cement bottom made it difficult to retrieve flat metal objects, like coins and pull tabs. I started by dragging a high power magnet through the 20’x 40ft area to remove all the ferrous metals. This lake is more than 50 years old and was surprisingly clean of trash except for many coins. 

I was able to get out to shoulder deep water using a 6” coil which is more efficient in areas with many metal objects which can mask a ring. My plan was to clear this zone before having to dawn my Nemo surface air supply for searching deeper water.

I started off using discriminating modes of my detector. Then I went to all metal mode to remove any signals that can interfere with the detection of the ring. It was a tedious search and time consuming, yielding more than 50 coins.

After more than three hours of searching the relatively small area. Joanna and Memo had been patiently standing by waiting and I’m sure they were losing hope that the ring would be found. They even asked me if I thought the ducks could have eaten the ring. 

Joanna was going to get us some coffee. Just after I told her what I would like. I took one more scoop to retrieve a signal and BOOM!! .. Big Gold and Diamond ring in the scoop.

Right away I told Memo to stop Joanna. I was finished searching. He looked confused why I said that. He said, why? That’s when I held out the scoop saying, because I found your ring.

It was a great reunion of this so sentimental ring. After three days of searching and looking at a real possibility of not finding the ring. Within seconds everything turned into a joyful moment for everyone, including myself.

What an awesome couple and a special pleasure to be able to help Memo and Joanna. A moment to remember forever.!!

Huntington Beach Volleyball Player Lost Sentimental Military ID Tag in Sand .. Called The Ring Finders Directory for Help

*** Leor had lost a military dog tag while playing volleyball at Huntington State Beach. It had belonged his father and he wears it everyday. It was very sentimental to him. Leor had noticed his broken chain before leaving the sand volleyball court. He and his friends search by hand without finding it.

Leor was driving home to San Diego when he called me. We discussed the circumstances of the loss which gave me hope that I could find the metal ID tag. There are about 20 volleyball courts in this area of the beach. He told me it had to be a court number 15. 

I was able to get to the beach soon after the call. It wasn’t necessary to have Leor at the site. When I arrived there were a group of 10 or 12 players practicing on that court and I didn’t want to ask them to let me search. When they finished I began to grid the court. Then I was informed they were not finished playing. I courteously came off the court. While waiting for another shot at the sandy court, I search to sideline areas around the boundaries. Eight feet outside the court on the opposite side where Leor had felt the loss occurred, I found the missing SS metal military ID tag. I was basically using up time waiting to get back to the search zone. It was definitely a surprise to me but we do know how many recoveries happen when we search outside the box.

Leor was more than excited when I called him with the good news. He arranged for his friend, Ben to pick up this ID tag. Ben did tell me how much this item means to Leor. This is what makes my day.

**** Conner and Brianna had been a Newport Beach when he reached for her hand and accidentally pulled off her diamond wedding ring set. The rings dropped into the dry sand. After searching by hand they could not even locate one of the rings.

Conner’s mother got online locating me by a referral after calling several places trying to get help with a metal detector.

Many people are still learning about TheRingFinders.com. I am a member of the international directory which has more than 450 independent detectorists in many cities worldwide.

Brianna and Conner are newlyweds and have only been married for three weeks. This was truly frustrating and it seemed impossible that both rings had disappeared so easily. 

I showed up on the beach shortly after the call. When I met the couple they had the area secured. I always feel confident that we can find the lost article if the people do not leave the location. Sometimes it’s more difficult to get back to the spot where the loss occurred than it is to find the ring with the metal detector.

The rings showed up about 2 feet apart about 4” in the sand. It was a quick recovery because they didn’t waste time trying to buy or rent a metal detector to find the rings. Trying to learn how to use a metal detector to find a valuable sentimental keepsake is not the way to go. Call an experienced metal detector specialist from TheRingFinders.com  ..

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring in House.. Venice, CA. .. Found in Trash

I call this a Pre-Christmas Miracle … It’s really difficult to search for a ring in a house. First of all, normal metal detectors do not work inside of houses because there is electrical interference and many nails, screws, etc. In the construction materials. There are also many hiding places for items as small as a ring. Over the years of doing ring searches, occasionally I will do house searches.  Even if I don’t find the item, I have been told by people that I helped them locate the lost article.

Sara called me three days after she lost her diamond engagement ring in her small home. She was devastated as she only had it for three weeks. I normally suggest places for the person to search and to give it few days before making plans for me to do a search.

We discussed what she remembered and it seemed like I could at least check the most difficult nooks and crannies. I do use an endoscope camera along with mirrors and high intensity lights. Of course there seems to be a few places that I can use the handheld metal detector ( pinpointer ). I set up to meet Sara the next day. Later after to call, I texted Sara, asking her not to throw the trash away even though she had told me she searched it.

Long story, short! After two hours in the three rooms she had been the morning of the loss. I gave Sara my my ”I can’t find it” pitch,  giving her hope that she still had many places it could hide and from my experience with these searches, it will show up.

Then I remembered that I had not checked the trash bags that she had set outside the on the steps. We dawned our rubber gloves. We proceeded to go through each hand full of trash using my pinpointer detector. Just before getting to the bottom of the first bag of trash there was a glimmer of yellow gold on the very bottom. It was Sara’s beautiful gold diamond engagement ring. Sara had missed it when she searched the trash, day one. I came very close to forgetting to search this trash bag.

”I Believe In Miracles ”.. I hope I never take these miracles for granted. 

It’s beyond words to express what I saw watching Sara at the moment we spotted the ring in the bottom of the trash. After the first few minutes passed, she got on her phone calling her loved ones with the good news.

…. Ben and Analise had driven two hours from home to have dinner at a outdoor restaurant in the Dana Point, CA. Harbor. Ben had walked out to the walkway to look at the fishing boats. Standing next to the handrail he swung his left arm and felt his gold wedding ring come off his finger. It was dark but he heard it hit the breakwater rocks six feet below the walkway.

It was low tide at the time, so Ben borrowed a flashlight, spending over an hour looking for the ring on the slippery rocks. His wife, Analise couldn’t help except to google search for help. She was able to contact me about 7pm. I wasn’t sure what type of conditions I would find when I arrived so I brought several types of metal detectors and bright search lights. Arriving just before 8pm, I met Analise. We walked over to the spot where Ben was still searching for the ring.

This was a nightmare type search area. Large slippery rocks with holes deep enough to put my whole arm in. Then to top it off, many pieces of metal trash making it near impossible to use my metal detector even with the 6 inch coil. 

I gave Ben a better search light and told him this would probably be an visual search because of the crazy conditions. They had canceled their dinner reservations knowing that if they didn’t find the ring tonight, they lived too far away to return to search again. Also, the next low low tide wouldn’t be till 9pm the next night.

With all the negative search conditions the ring was found amongst the rocks, luckily it didn’t find one of the many deep holes. Ben was tired and had all but given up before I got the the site. That made it more of a celebration once the ring was found. It’s hard to stay positive when searching such a difficult site. This time it paid off with a successful recovery. Now this ring has more of a story to remember, as every ring has a story starting when Analise and Ben were married.

They were very happy and grateful, thanking me for the help. This is why I love doing these searchers.

*** Adriana had lost both her diamond gold wedding ring set. After three days of searching many different possible areas she had been, she called me for help. 

We discussed the many places where she had been the day of the loss. The family had driven out of town to visit friends, she had made a trip to a local grocery store, she also walked across the lawn to a community mail box (150 yards.) and lastly she had done many chores inside the house. A lot of nooks and crannies for rings to hide. Adrianna and her husband, Jon desperately searched for days without success. She told me they had given up hope but wanted me to check the grass before completely letting go.

After hearing all the potential places the loss occurred, I could only suggest that with my equipment I could definitely eliminate the grassy area that she walked to pick up the mail and play area where she was with her children. There could be places to search after I get to the location.

We couldn’t meet up till the next day. Jon was there to meet me and Adriana would show up to give me person to person description of what she had done the day of the loss.

Jon showed me the path across the grass to mail box. This would keep me busy until Adriana got home. I did the whole grass area even though she probably walked a narrow pathway. After 15 minutes I got a surface signal and looking down I could see the diamond wedding ring. About 18” over there was the diamond engagement ring. I left them there.

When I walked up to the door Adriana stepped out to meet me. I asked her to show me where she had walked. As she was showing me, I said, I think you just stepped on something. When she looked down she saw the first ring. She was shocked and told me they had gone over that area a couple times, in the daylight and at night with a flashlight.

She let Jon know we had the rings and he met us outside to make a video recording of the recovery to share with his friends.

Another great recovery because it almost seemed impossible considering all the places she had been when she lost the rings.   I run out of words to explain how happy they were..

**** On our Southern California beaches it’s popular to spend the evenings sitting on the sand at the fire pits. This call was from Patrick’s friend, who had found me on TheRingFinder website. They had spent a couple hours enjoying sitting around a fire at Newport Beach,CA. As they started to leave, Patrick picked up his towel and brushed sand off with his hand. He felt his ring slip off his finger into the sand.

After a half hour searching the small area, they were frustrated with their unsuccessful attempts to find the ring. It was getting cold and they had to be home soon. I was able to meet them on the beach which is less than three miles from my home.

It only took a few minutes after setting up my detector to find the ring. Patrick and his friend were happy to have the ring recovered and able to get on their way home. I love these quick recoveries. From the time I left the house till I got home was less than an hour. That includes taking photos for the book of smiles. All ring calls are not this easy. This year I had one ring search in the Mojave desert 135 miles away and it was 104 degrees. Then I had another 100 mile drive with a 3 hour hike to a hot springs for a ring lost in the water. Both of these searches were unsuccessful. We don’t get all of them. I still can’t wait till the next call out. They are always a new adventure and so rewarding to make another smile.

****Erick and his family live near San Clemente. They regularly come the this same small beach and everybody knows each other. The week before his friend lost a platinum out in the ocean while surfing.

Erick normally doesn’t take his ring off but this day he decided he didn’t want to lose it in the water. He took his platinum wedding ring off wrapping it in a towel that he place on a large rock. When he returned from the water his ring was not in the towel. He was baffled because he had not moved the towel before checking for his ring.

He was able to call me for help finding his ring with my metal detector. We met in the parking lot. Then he told me he believed it may have been stolen. He wanted to make sure it hadn’t been dropped in the sand. We walked to the large boulder were he put his belongings.

I was afraid that the ring might have fallen into many inaccessible spaces between the breakwater size rocks. This time we were lucky. The ring was under the sand right next the place were the towel had been. We figured that someone may have moved the towel while Erick was surfing. Sometimes we never know what caused the loss. The most important thing is we found and returned the sentimental wedding ring. Erick was elated and very happy that it wasn’t lost forever.

**** Alexio had put his single car key in the pocket of his pants. After taking a swim in the ocean he put his clothes on he believed the key fell out of the pocket into the sand. He and his girl friend, Malle were at Newport Beach and they live more than 40 miles away. It was starting the get cold and dark which hampered their attempts to find the key. 

Malle got out her cellphone google searching howWe to find a key in the sand. TheRingFinders website came up giving her my phone number.  I was available to meet them shortly after she talked to me. It was only about a three mile drive for me.

Alexio marked out a 20’x20’ square in the sand. He was right on with the general area. Fifteen minutes later we had the car key in the scoop and two very happy that were not stranded on the cold dark beach with no way to get home. Another fun hunt for me that made me feel good to help a nice young couple out of a predicament.
