Pam called me regarding her lost wedding ring. We talked, and she told me she had lost it at the beach 2 days before, and my heart dropped, because time ALWAYS works against a successful recovery. I then began my litany of questions, and as she described where it was lost, my hopes of a recovery buoyed. We arranged to meet at the beach where she would take me to the area of the loss, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Pam met me, and took me out to the beach to show me the area. When we got there I could see that the total area was not big, but she said that there was also another spot if this one was not successful. I began my search right where she said she had put her chair. She had been sitting there pulling her sunblock gloves on and off, and suspected that is the reason the ring came off. As I searched Pam went out and looked out over the water. I found a couple of bottle caps, and pull tabs before getting a strong double beep in the headphones. I put in the scoop, and raised it up with a huge beautiful diamond ring in it. Pam had not described it to me before I began, and I had no problem knowing that this beauty was her ring. I said out loud that it must be a beautiful ring, and she turned to see me holding it up for her. Pam was stricken with unbelief, that ring was found, but overcome with happiness. It was great to experience her joy, and be able to return a ring she had had for decades, and thought was gone forever. What a wonderful day!

Pam sent the following testimonial:

Dear Ringfinders,

I just want to acknowledge the professionalism of Steve Smith of Ringfinders.
From the moment I reached out to him I knew this man was a professional.

His care in asking the right questions. His ability to arrive quickly. His compassion and quiet fortitude in his search.

I would call him an angel. I had lost my wedding ring and I had all but lost hope of recovery. I believed it would be a real miracle to find my ring after 3 days lost at the beach. He found it in 5 minutes! It was completely miraculous.

Steve is a the real deal. A truly nice person wanting to help others. What a great job!

So grateful to have met this wonderful person!

Diamond Stud Earrinng Lost in the Sand at Manhattan Beach…Found and Happily Returned.

I got a call from Christy regarding her friend Erin. Erin had been surfing, and when she came out of the water, she removed her wetsuit causing her diamond stud earring to come off of her ear, and into the sand. Stud earrings are one of the most difficult items to find because there is such a small amount of metal attached to them. We arranged to meet, and I set off to do the search.

When I arrived at the beach, I looked for her, but there were a number of people out on the sand. I asked her to let me know where she was, and she began waving her arm. What I saw disheartened me a bit. She was standing in a group of no less than 30 people, mostly children moving around, and I began to think that the earring might have been stepped on and pushed out of detecting range. Erin had the other earring, so we put it in a ziplock bag, and placed it on the sand. When I tested the earring with my detector the furthest I could get from it and still detect it was about 2 inches, so I knew to find it, it needed to be close to the surface. As I began my search, everyone began to leave, and then as they were almost gone, Christy drew a circle of about 20 feet around the area where she believed the loss to have occurred which seemed rather large for such a small item. I worked slowly checking every faint signal I heard, and laid out a grid on the whole area. After, I began a cross grid, in order to not miss the earring because it might have been turned a different way. Then right in the middle of the circle I heard another faint signal, and moved some sand to check again. The signal came in stronger, so I moved a little more sand and rechecked. Now the signal was strong, so I dipped in my little scoop, and there in the bottom was the earring. I let Christy and Erin know it had been found, and Erin asked her husband to come and get it. He was reluctant to have his picture taken with the recovery, so He took one of me. Then I told him he might want to buy a lottery ticket because the odds of a recovery were so slim. Another great day.

Darren called; he had been at the beach with his family celebrating an anniversary, and had removed his ring to enter the water, putting it in a bag. When they moved everything to leave and got to the car he realized the ring was missing. They went back and conducted a thorough search of the area, with no luck. I told him I would be there as soon as I could make it, and he agreed to meet me when I arrived to show me the area of the loss.

When I arrived we met up quickly, and went directly to the search area. I could see that there had been an extensive search because of the grid marks in the sand. I began my search, and found that the area was very clean from metal debris. I found one bottle cap, and right after got a good signal digging up a nice chunky gold ring. I held it up, and Darren was totally surprised, because it was right in the middle of their grid search. He wanted to give me a hug, but because of COVID stood down. Needless to say he was overjoyed to have his ring back, but did not want his picture taken. A great day!

Matthew contacted me last night. He had been at the beach earlier in the day throwing a ball for his dog, when after a good toss, he realized his ring was missing. The ring was a bit of a loose fit, so they figured it flew off in the direction of the thrown ball. The ring was a special gift from his girlfriend, who had it custom made for him with special engravings on the sides. I let him know that we should get on the search as soon as possible, so we arranged to meet as soon as I could get to the area.

When I arrived, we met up, and Matthew and his girlfriend took me over to the area of the loss. I could see where they had been searching, and Matthew showed me where he had been standing when he threw the ball, and direction the ball was thrown. I started searching, laying out a tight grid finding bottle caps, and other various pieces of metal, but no ring. I expanded the area thinking he might have thrown it further than he thought finding more bottle caps but no ring. I widened the search area, no ring. I then went back to the starting point, and began a backwards search, and on the first pass, got a booming signal, scooped, and in the scoop was this big beautiful silver ring. I pulled it out, and they were baffled by the fact that the ring was found just behind where Matthew had been standing when he threw the ball. I always tell people that what they lost isn’t always where you think it is. That is why we as Ring Finders can be so effective at locating lost jewelry, it is because we are not emotionally tied to the search, and can think out of the box. A beautiful warm Summer evening!

Brooks contacted me after losing his cell phone at the beach the day before. He had spent about 3 hours searching for it with no luck. I wondered if the county machines had picked it up during their beach sweep, but Brooks assured me that it was still showing up on the “Find My iPhone” app. We arranged to meet up at the area, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Brooks had another phone, and was able to show me the latest report from his phone, and it showed we were almost on top of it. I set up, and began my grid. After about two passes, and about 3 minutes time, I was able to dig his phone out of the sand and give it back. He was very relieved to have it back. A worthwhile morning!

I received a call from David who was calling for a friend that had lost his ring in the sand at the beach. David remembered me from 3 years prior when he called me for another friend who had lost his ring, which I found. This time his friend Brian had put his wedding ring in his hat when he went into the water, but forgot when his belongings were moved so the two of them could practice their Wifflle Ball skills. I let them know I would be able to come right away.

I got to the area, and David found me to wave me over the spot of the loss. He showed me the area, which did not seem to be large, right next to a trash can. I began my search grid, not finding anything. I then began a grid behind the trash can, and right next to it received a good signal. I had to scoop a couple of times because the target was moving, but when I raised the scoop, inside was a nice gold ring. I gave it back to Brian, who was happy he did not have to go home and have to explain to his wife how it was lost.😊 Another great day!

White Marlin Open Tournament Ring Lost in the surf at Manhattan Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

I received a distressed email from Tommy the other day. He had lost a very special ring in the surf at the beach that he had been wearing for the past 23 years. He had won the ring at the Maryland DC White Marlin Open Tournament in 1997, a tournament that he had fished for most of his life, and to lose this precious reward was a major blow. The problem was that the ring was lost 3 days earlier, and I was already thinking that the possibility of a recovery was going to be slim to none. The best chance of a search was going to be the next morning, so that was going to be 4 days. I called Tommy and we discussed what had happened. There were details about the loss that were favorable, like the fact he lost it at high tide, which would have put me in a good position at low tide the next day. He was not able to meet me there for the search, but was able to give me a great landmark to use to do the search, so I let him know I would go, and let him know one way or the other if I was able to locate his ring.

I got to the area, and began my search at the top of the slope working North and South, and worked my way down to the water. There was so much sand, and I was not getting any signals although I was using one of my deepest detectors. I finally found one crusted penny. I reached the water’s edge, and donned my chest waders to search in the surf. I now worked East and West trying to maintain a close grid working down the beach. I was able to go out into the surf quite far because after going through a hole, there was a sand bar that raised back up, and was flat out to the breaking waves. I found another crusted penny out there, and ended up covering the whole area that I had searched up on the slope. Tommy had told me that if anything, he might have been more North of the landmark as opposed to South, so I moved up to continue searching in the Northern direction. I made a few passes from the top of the slope into the water, and while about 30 feet out in the water, out on the bar I got a good signal. I was able to scoop the target digging once, and after washing the sand from the scoop saw the ring I was hunting, I couldn’t believe it was still there, but seeing it made me very happy. I took a picture of the ring and sent a text to Tommy letting him know about the recovery, and he sent a me a text back, one of total disbelief. We arranged to meet when he got off of work, to return the ring. When we met, he told me how he had been in communication with the tournament to find out if the ring could be replaced, because he thought it was lost forever. I was very honored to be able to hand this precious memory back to him; made his day!

Lit Papi (Stage Name) called me last night explaining that he lost his girlfriend’s ring at the beach. I had just finished dinner, poured myself a cup of coffee, and let him know I would be on my way.

When I arrived Lit Papi met me and showed me where they had been sitting and explained what happened. The area was not large, so I knew this would be a quick search. I searched on the one side of the area, finding only a nickel. I then began in the other direction, when after one pass, I got a good signal, put in the scoop, which now had the ring inside. He was happy to be able to get his girlfriend’s ring back. They would both sleep well now, I was sure.

Keith called me for a search of a church rectory and children’s play yard. The rectory had recent work, and they were worried about nails and other pointy things left over from the construction, and he also wanted me to check the play yard for dangerous items. I let him know this would be possible, and we arranged a time to meet.

When I got to the church, Keith met me, and showed me where to search. I began, and found that there were many deep items, but not much surface items, but I was able to find some around the rectory. After searching the rectory, we went over to the play area, where in the crumbled tire mulch that surrounded the equipment I was able to find many items that could have caused serious injury to the children. After I finished Keith seemed very happy to know that the children would be safer.

I was out on the bike path of the beach yesterday getting some exercise when I received a call from Eric. Eric explained to me that he had been in his yard with some friends the other day when somehow his new hearing aid fell from his ear into the grass. He told me how they had searched, but were unable to find it. We arranged to meet today to do the search.

I got to his house as soon as I was able, and met Eric. He had his remaining hearing aid in a “Zip Lock” bag waiting for me so I could check to see if my detector would be able to pick it up. I laid it out on the grass of his yard, and scanned it, there was enough metal for it to see. I then checked it with my pin pointer, also a good signal. Eric showed me where he had been most of the day, so I began my search checking each good signal, but it was not in that area. I then began moving out of the box. Eric showed me where he had raked the leaves and debris to the edge, so I made sure to check there as well, no hearing aid. As soon as I moved out of the area he had showed me I got another good signal, put in my pin pointer, and there it was. The color was somewhat neutral, so it really blended in with the surrounding grass and dirt, but there it was. I brought it over to Eric, who was very happy to have it found. I was great to be able to help him out; a fine day!

Eric sent the following testimonial:

“I cannot say enough about how lucky I feel that I found Steve Smith via Ringfinders network. A relatively new and expensive hearing aid somehow fell out of my ear while having a small , “social distancing” cocktail with friends in our backyard recently. My wife and I raked and raked the grass with expectation that we would find it-but failed. I then decided to try to rent a metal detector to search again by myself-but, found that to be a tough process. And, as my new hero Steve pointed out, I would have had trouble learning how to use it. I found Steve via a Google Search and the rest was history. We live in Pasadena area Foothills-which is a long schlep for Steve-but he drove over the next day. He is a class act and a real gentleman and he found the device after almost an hour of very dedicated searching. My only “quibble” with Steve’s services is that he lets the customer decide on payment. I decided to both pay him, and then make a donation to a charity that he chose. Eric”
