*** Tom returned home from a camping trip. He took his camping gear into the back yard to clean it up before storing it in the garage. Two hours later, after going inside the house he realized his gold ring was no longer on his finger. He rented a metal detector from a tool supply business and was unable to find the ring. After doing some research on line about using a metal detector he found TheRingFinders directory. He called me.

I was able to meet Tom at his home a couple hours later. He showed me a small grass area and planters that the ring may be hiding. When I asked him about the last time he remembered seeing the ring on his hand, he couldn’t quite remember.

I only knew it was a yellow gold ring and that he had been shaking out the tent and some sleeping bags, hanging them on a cloth line type cable. First I did the planters as he assumed the ring may have traveled some distance. I also wanted to use a leaf blower to knock the ring out of the shrubbery ( that has been successful on a couple of my past searches )

Tom works from and had to leave me in the yard while taking a call. Before resorting to use the leaf blower I wanted to scan the grass area. BOOM ! Gold Ring in the grass directly under the clothesline where he had hung the sleeping bags. The grass wasn’t sparse and if I starred long enough at the spot where I got the signal, I could easily see it. Sometimes, time of day when the sun is just in the right position it will help to  make a visual search a success.

I left the ring right there where it was hiding. When Tom came outside I was able to guide him to his ring. He was amazed, because he had sent a lot of time with a rental metal detector and physically crawling on his hands and knees in that very spot.~ He was very happy and relieved that he had his ring back where it belongs.

Engagement Ring Lost in House Found in Trash by Metal Detector Man

*** Chloe lost her gold diamond engagement ring in her house. She called me for help.  Usually I, recommend that she not throw any trash away before checking it and check the house for a couple days before I do a house search. She was very upset and when she told me details of the loss, I had to go right away to do the house search in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.

Chloe had taken her two ring wedding set off before taking a shower. She set them both on top of a wrapped present that was on a chest of drawers in the bedroom. She took a shower in the bathroom that is right next to the bedroom. ( 5ft. away) After returning to the bedroom, she went to put her rings on but the gold diamond engagement ring was missing.

Curiosity got my attention, she said it happened yesterday and she had not left the house. I had to take this search on. I drove to her home in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. 

After arriving at Chloe’s home, we went to the room where the ring went missing. I now had a first hand view of where this loss happened. There was absolutely no place near where she set the rings to search. She said she had already checked the trash. 

I was completely puzzled, I thought there might be a crevice or drawer that the engagement ring could have been knocked off ending up inside. I always like to have a place that I can use my endoscope camera for searching. Nothing, like that ! We moved the chest of drawers away from the wall, no place for the ring to hide. 

While I was on my hands and knees on the floor, I decided to double check the small trash bin using my hand held pinpointer detector. ( this is the same trash bin Chloe had checked).. There were only a few tissues and the wrapper for the present she had opened. BOOM!! The ring was inside one of the first pieces of paper tissues. Chloe was beyond overjoyed and a little embarrassed that she had missed finding her ring when she searched it.. After many searches, I believe that a lot of rings end up in the trash and they don’t get found. 

If you loose something in the house, it’s not going to leave the house unless you throw it in the trash or it gets sucked up into the vacuum and hauled off to the local land fill .

**** Raloul and Lisa vacationing from Germany spent their last day with their kids at Baby Beach in Dana Point, CA.  Here we go again, Lisa took her wedding ring set off putting them in a pocket of her shirt. After a couple hours playing with her kids in front if their beach camp. When Lisa reached into her pocket both wedding rings were missing. 

Someone on the beach noticed both Raloul and Lisa searching through the sand. They told the couple how to contact me to help them find their rings. After they called me they agreed to stay in the asea till I arrived. 

We met on the beach less than an hour after the initial call. I this case, getting to the location could not be an advantage. Many people still on the small beach. Also, part of the sandy area was not soft sand. The rings may not have been under the sand and could have been picked up by one of the many people on the beach.

There was some searchable spots around the sides and in front of their beach tent. It took about 15 minutes to clear those open spots. Then just before I ran out of space to hunt, I got the first ring. The second ring was just two feet away. Both rings we’re less than two inches deep and only a few inches from the people set up next to them. The search worked out well with little wasted time. If we didn’t find the rings. I know I was willing to wait till everyone left the beach to complete the search.

Both Lisa and Raloul were excited and happy to have their wedding rings back. It would not have been terrible to return to Germany without Lisa’s rings. Another happy day on the beach with several beach goers witnessing this ring recovery. Most people say they didn’t know the ring finders metal detecting service exists.

Gold Wedding Ring Lost In Surf at Newport Beach, CA. .. Found Next Day with a Metal Detector

*** Greg and Jolene are from the San Francisco Bay Area and  vacationing at Newport Beach for a week. The third day Greg went into the ocean for a swim in the surf. As he was walking out of the surf he shook his hand and his gold wedding band flew off into waist deep water. The waves were coming in at such a rate he could not see the ring before it disappeared into the sand. 

I got an early morning text from Jolene asking how and what my service works. I told here I work on a gratuity basis. They could decided what it was worth to them after they see how I perform the search.After determining that they were just minutes away from my location and the tide was as low as it could be until tomorrow. I told her that I would be right there if they could meet me. 

We met on the beach which is what I call a short beach, that beach has a steep incline. The tide does not go far out from the upper slope (dry sand towel line) The important thing is that they could give me the best North/ South location. I didn’t feel the ring was far out at the low tide but that’s where I started to stay ahead of the incoming tide. 

After about a half hour I had grid searched to mid-slope where I got the one an only signal. Two digs with my sand scoop and I had Greg’s gold ring in my scoop.  The incoming tide forced me to start in knee high water, even though I felt the ring was up higher on the slope. Best to eliminate the lower area before the water was too deep to search. 

Both Jolene and Greg were elated and relieved that they had the ring. Now they could enjoy the rest of their vacation, They admitted to me that they didn’t believe the metal detector could find a ring that had been in the surf for almost a whole day. Like most people that call The Ring Finders they told me I was their last hope. I love doing this, even when I can’t find the item, you can’t get them all and you can find the item if it isn’t there.  Reality!

Unbelievable Gold Earring Recovery near a Firepit at Huntington State Beach, CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)












If you lost your ring in the sand call  “Stan the Metal Detector Man” available now … Call or Text  .. 949-500-2136

*** Jeremy and his wife had been at Huntington State Beach sitting around the firepits the night before calling me. His wife had lost a gold earring in the sand near the firepit. It was a very special hierloom passed down to her from her grandmother. I was at the general location before Jeremy showed up and I could see a guy detecting the firepits.

Jeremy arrived about 10 minutes later. We walked out to the firepit where the loss occurred. I could see that the other detectorist had already worked this firepit area. Jeremy marked a 15’x 15’ zone that he believed the gold earring should be. Beginning to swing my 11” coil set up on my Equinox metal detector,  I knew there was a lot of trash metal in this location. It would be better to get my other detector with the 6” coil. 

I asked Jeremy to go ask the other detectorist if he had found the earring and he had not found the earring. I went back to my car to get the better detector for this trashy area. I also brought a small hand sand sifter to use up close to the cement firepit that is reinforced with iron rebar. If the earring was close to the firepit, the rebar might mask the possibility of getting a signal from my detector.

You won’t believe what happened after I got back to continue the search. Jeremy had a rake that a camper had lent him. I told him the rake was a waste of time for a small earring. It would be more helpful if he could use the small hand sifter to pull the sand away from the rebar cement firepit. 

Then I gave him a demonstration of how to use it. I took two short scoops with the scoop and the miracle happened. “BOOM “ there in the scoop was the gold earring. Exactly on the opposite side of the firepit where he believed the loss had happened. 

Unbelievable!! This was completely unexpected and I’m starting to get used to these types of recoveries. The best thing about it was Jeremy could return to the hotel to surprise his wife.

Gold Diamond Stud Earring and Backing Lost in Grass… Pasadena, CA. .. Found using a Metal Detector

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)










“I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136  ..  Email:





*** Sarah’s daughter had just completed her first day at preschool. Her first day away from her mother. When the little girl ran across the lawn to hug her mother. Sarah dropped to her knees to greet her daughter. A happy memorable moment, until Sarah realized her gold diamond stud earring fell into the grass.

I was on the beach detecting when she called, asking for help. We were able to meet a little more than an hour after discussing what had happened. Sometimes fulltime mothers have trouble getting free from their motherly duties. It’s always nice to have the person that lost the item present at the location.

We met on the front lawn of the private school where she showed me the thick grass and a 15’x15’ area. I had asked her to bring the matching earring in a sandwich baggie so I could test it with my metal detector.

This earring had enough metal to get a fair signal. It still took about 15 minutes to coach a decent reading in the thick growth of grass. I use a high frequency detector for stud earring searches. Sarah was very happy to have her favorite earring set complete. She asked if it was possible to find the custom backing.

It was not easy to locate that piece. I was beginning to think it may have hung up on Sarah’s or her daughter’s clothing, dropping off further from the stud earring. After more than a half hour, I switch to a multi frequency metal detector using a 6” coil. BOOM! the small custom backing was almost 3” deep in the grass, imbedded in the clay mud. I did tell her that the backing was going to be a challenge. After my favorite small gold metal detector didn’t get it. I was surprised that the two pieces were only 12” apart. The important thing was we got both pieces and Sarah went home delighted to have her favorite earring set complete again.

Gold Wedding Ring Lost while Installing Grass Sod in Rialto, CA. .. Found by Stan the Metal Detector Man

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)


Mobile Metal Detecting Service .. Call Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-2136 .. Email:

Mariano called me after finding my contact information on theringfinders website. He believed his white gold wedding band may have fallen off his finger while installing grass sod in his front yard.

Mariano reviewed several cameras and photos taken the day of the loss. He was very sure the ring was somewhere in the 40’x 75’ front yard. He bought a metal detector from a local sporting goods store. After a couple day of frustration,  trying to understand his new metal detector, he gave up. 

When Mariano called me, we made an appointment to meet the next morning. This type of search was a first for me. I knew it could involve rolling back the newly installed grass sod. It could be tedious work if there was a lot of metal trash under the sod. 

I began a grid search marking all potential targets with plastic markers. My metal detector has target identification numbers and tones which can be helpful but when searching for important sentimental jewelry, I do not rely on that feature of the metal detector.

After a scan of the whole lawn, there were approximately 20 markers that I would individually check with my pinpointer detector. Mariano was close by, so I explained my next move. I would start with the best signal which had been marked with a double marker. 

Both Mariano and I checked  the target. He anxiously pulled back the first 3” of sod revealing his white gold wedding ring perfectly visible as if someone just set it there. ( I believe those rolls of sod are 5 or 6 ft. of long). Again a lucky choice of direction to begin a search.

Mariano immediately let his wife know that the ring was found and called his father who had been a part of the original search. Another happy grateful family that didn’t know a service like this was available.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)




 “I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136

**** Grant and Taylor had been sitting on the sand watching the sunset at Newport Beach, CA.. When they returned to the car Taylor noticed her Cartier Love Ring was no longer on her finger. They returned to the spot on the beach where they had been sitting to sift through the sand by hand. Because she didn’t know when the ring came off her finger, it could be anywhere within the 200 yards across the sand to their vehicle.

After more than an hour if searching in the cold dark evening they returned to the car. Frustrated, they went to the internet for help. That’s where they find my contact information.

I was able to meet them shortly after the call. We had to start at the place they had spent the most time. Luckily,  I found the ring within a few minutes. They were very happy to get this very sentimental ring back where it belongs. I was also happy because I know in this area the ring would not have survived the city sand sifting machine that would surely get it the next morning.

Lost Gold Ring in Sand Playing Beach Volleyball.. Newport Beach, CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

… Most people that play volleyball often do not wear jewelry. What usually happens is they lose their ring the one time they forget to take off before playing. Sometimes they feel it come off but that doesn’t mean they can find it in the sand without experienced help.

Ava was playing volleyball on the sand with her friends at Newport Beach, CA. She felt her ring fly off her finger into the sand. She and her friends spent a couple hours crawling through the sand searching for her sentimental gold ring.

Somebody on the beach recommended that they search google for a metal detector specialist. 

They contacted me and I was able to meet them at the location shortly after talking to them. Parking was not a problem so I walked a short distance to meet Ava. I wish all searches were this easy. After setting up my detector, I was recovered the ring on the second grid line about 4” deep in the dry sand. Quick and easy but it’s surprising how many people give up on finding small metallic items lost in the sand.

Ava and her friends were surprised that it was found exactly where they had spent so much time digging through the sands.
