Billy a relative of Karen called me asking if I could help them find a family heirloom diamond ring that Karen had lost at the beach just an hour before the call. Knowing that the weather had been nice, and there were a lot of people there I told him I would leave right away to do the search if they would await. They agreed to wait, and I left for the search.

Billy met me when I arrived and took me to the area of the loss. His family including Karen was visiting from Wisconsin, and were scheduled to leave the next day, so this loss created a high level of tension. The ring had been Karen’s great grandmother’s, and had a deep special meaning for her. They showed me what had happened, the ring had flown off of her finger while she was brushing the sand off of her clothes. I began my search and found bottle caps, foil, some coins, but no ring. I then began searching in the other direction, and a little further out, when I got a good strong signal. I put the scoop in, pulled it up and shook out the sand. When I looked in, expecting to see the diamond ring, I saw 2 rings, and was a little puzzled. Before I brought them out, I asked if I was looking for 1 or 2 rings, they then said that 2 were lost, but they were really concerned about the diamond ring. That is when I pulled them both out of the scoop to everyone’s surprise. Karen had an immediate flood of emotion when she saw the ring her great grandmother had worn, and came and gave me a big hug. I know it was bothering her to think she might have to go back to Wisconsin leaving this representation of her family behind. Boy it is great to see joy restored!

I received a somewhat desperate call from Sarah about 8:00 PM, she had been at the beach earlier in the day, and lost her Tiffany necklace. The weather had finally warmed up, and lured many to the beaches to enjoy the change, Sarah included. She was sitting on her blanket, and realized that her necklace was causing a bit of irritation, so she removed it and placed it on the blanket so as to not lose it. When it was time to leave she forgot the necklace was still on the blanket, got up, shook the sand off of it, and left for home. She got pretty far from the spot before she realized the necklace was gone. She called, and I told her if she would wait, I would come immediately to conduct the search. She agreed to wait, and I was on my way.

When I arrived Sarah told me that the necklace was given to her by her parents, and recently had lost her father, so this necklace loss was a very painful one. She took me out to the area, and explained what had happened. There were some people in the area, so I began working around them until they left. I set a grid, and worked in one direction, Sarah then told me that she believed she was more in the opposite direction, so I changed over to the new area. I was finding some bottle caps, and few coins, and continued the grid. After about 7 or 8 passes, at about 9:30 PM, I got a good silver tone in the head phones, looked down, and saw a partially covered heart. I reached down, and brought up Sarah’s necklace unharmed. I was surprised no one else had found it because it was not totally hidden. Sarah became very emotional telling me that it was one of the things she owned that her father had last touched, and that she had been listening to the music he enjoyed on her way back for the search. What a smile, right?!

Paul called explaining that he had lost his ring while pulling weeds in the yard. With the recent rains the grass had grown rapidly along with the weeds. As he threw a clump of weeds his custom ring that he had purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York City flew off of his finger into the tall grass. He began to strip the grass down to the ground in the area he thought the ring may have landed, but was not able to find it. Thinking it may have flown farther, and down a highly vegetated hillside, he sought more professional help. Paul found me on the Ring Finders web site and called, and we arranged to meet.

When I got to Paul’s house, he showed me the area where he was working, and the hand motion that caused the loss. I noticed that the grass had been stripped down to the dirt almost, so anything like his ring would be there in sight, but I ran my coil over the whole area nun the less. Finding nothing there, I began on the hillside that started on the edge of the small yard. I worked my way down the hillside slowly searching every inch of the ground; NOTHING! I looked at Paul asking if there was anything else that could have happened, and he assured me the loss occurred exactly as he explained, so I went back up to the original area. It was then I noticed the pile of grass that Paul had removed from the area of the loss, and began my search in the pile. After a few passes, I got the signal I was looking for, moved the grass around and there it was. I held the ring up, and Paul came running over. He was so surprised that it was in the pile he had set aside, but so very happy it had been found. I know that I made his day!

I received a call the other day from Alessandro who had lost his custom ring at the exercise yard at Venice Beach the day before. This was a ring he personally designed and crafted with his own hands, so it had a very special meaning to him. I wasn’t real confident of a recovery, but felt assured knowing that the County beach cleaning machines don’t go in there, so the possibilities were better than average for a recovery. I let him know I would leave immediately, and meet him there so he can show me the area and explain what had happened.

I got to the yard, and met with Alessandro. He took me to the area of the loss, and showed me the two areas he had focused on the day before while doing his exercises. He had put his ring in his back pocket, so as not to mar it on the equipment while he exercised. He did a lot of moves that caused him to be upside down in different spots in the yard, so the ring could have come out at one of those times. I searched the logical areas where one would have suspected the ring to have come out and landed; no ring. I went over the areas again; again no ring. One thing I have learned while being a ring finder, is that you have to exhaust all possibilities before you leave, so I began searching in an area that did not seem like a likely area, when I got a good signal. I scooped the sand, and saw a big shiny object. When I shook the sand, there it was. I had my back to Alessandro, and when I turned with his ring outstretched, he got up and ran over. He was very surprised and happy to see his ring again. I was very happy to make his day!

Greg had been at Will Rodgers Beach in Santa Monica, CA. He lost a very expensive high tech hearing aid. He called me asking if I had metal detectors that could find a hearing aid lost in the sand. I have several metal detectors that are specifically for finding small objects. The most important factor, is getting me to the general location as soon as possible.

I met him about 3pm in the afternoon with probably a couple hours of daylight left before dark. These hearing aids actually have gps locating capabilities and the last location was across the street near the bus stop. We went to search that location first without success.

Greg brought the matching hearing aid and it was quite easy to get a good signal. Now he pointed out an area of the beach where he had been flying a kite with his son.

It was a massive area, probably as big as a football field. Plan “A” was to start gridding 30’x 30’ quadrants. While starting the first 30 feet, Greg told me that he had fallen down at the other end of the search area.

I changed my search plan, deciding to start from the place where Greg had fallen. 

We proceeded to walk over to that location. I left my detector on as we walked diagonally to a new starting spot 100 yards away. Stopping a slow grid and stepping up my pace, I only went 20 feet when I got a signal that was worth checking. 

Unbelievable! There was Greg’s hearing aid. First target 20 minutes after starting a search that I felt was going to be possibly 3 or 4 hours.

Greg later told me that he had only been using these hearing aids for 4 months and the whole set was valued at more than $10k. We saved a whole lot of trouble getting it replaced besides the expense to get a replacement.

I believe in miracles, but they don’t happen if you don’t try.

I received a call from Asher today, he had lost his wedding ring while pushing his daughter on a swing in his local park. He said it had happened today, and it sounded as though he had not left the area, so everything was sounding like there would be a successful recovery. Knowing this was in a public place the emphasis is on getting there for the search as soon as possible, so I told him I would leave right away.

When I got to the park, I walked over where the swings are, and Asher met me to show me what and where the loss happened. He had actually witnessed the ring coming off of his finger and hitting the sand, so he knew where it had gone, but yet he searched for over an hour with no luck in finding it. It is really amazing how the sand will swallow up a ring or piece of jewelry to where it is impossible to find. Fortunately I use the best equipment made for such a recovery, and have the experience to make the recovery happen. Like I tell the people who call me, if it is there I will find it. One short pass, and two scoops later Asher’s ring was in my scoop. He was very happy. This ring represented 3 years of loving commitment for him, he wanted it back, and I was happy to be able to make that happen for him. Awesome day!

Mari called me asking for help to find her husband’s gold wedding ring lost in the yard while clearing debris from drainage gutters. Her husband, Ali didn’t feel the ring come off his finger. His hands were cold and wet. It had to come off while digging in the wet mud of the planter.

The next day Ali tediously removed all the wood chip ground cover looking for a glimmer of gold color. Then he sifted through a lot of the muddy soil. They called several stores trying to find a metal detector in stock. Then that afternoon they went to a local home depot tool rental store. Someone there told them about TheRingFinders. Ali called me, telling me the story. 

I was not sure what conditions I would have to deal with and it looked like it might be raining. I brought rain gear just in case. We were lucky that the rain had just let up when I met Ali that morning. He showed me where he had searched. It took a few minutes to set up my detector because there was some electrical interference near the house. 

The area was less than 20’x20’. I began swinging my coil over most the area hearing several potential targets without checking them. When swinging up under a small palm tree a stronger tone and good number ID came up on my metal detector. Ali was standing next to me with a small garden shovel in his hand. I ask him to dig that spot. He only pushed the hand shovel 3” on the damp mud then when he dumped it the gold ring popped out. Both of us were surprised, it was only a few minutes and it was our first target. The right tool for the right job.

I never get tired of doing this, even though there are times when the lost item may not be in the location where it was thought to be lost. You can’t find it if it isn’t there.

I got a call last week from a gentleman who was on vacation from Switzerland with a friend, and staying with a another friend a the beach. It seems as though they were out at the beach sitting watching the waves, that the key their friend had given them to enter the house was lost in the sand, and they were unable to find it after about 2 hours of searching. I told them I would be able to be there in about 30 minutes, and was on my way.

When I got to the beach I found them waiting at beach bar, and they took me out to the area of the loss. They showed me where they had been sitting, so I began my search. It took me about 3 passes, and then I got the sound I was wanting to hear. I put the scoop in and had the key. The guys were very happy to have it back, wanting to not feel as they let their friend down by losing his key. Some thankful guys for sure.

II received a call from a young lady who had lost a safety deposit key. She thought she was holding an old key that was no longer usable, but her sister had given her the good key instead. As she was driving down the street she was thinking about the key and decided it was no longer needed, so she threw it out of the car window. It wasn’t until she contacted her sister later that she found out she had thrown out the much needed key.

When I got there she met me and told me all that had happened, and showed me the median. It was about 4:00 PM, on a weekday with a lot of traffic from people getting off of work on their way home. The median was no more than 8 feet wide, so checking on the tones that were on the edge would put me within inches of passing vehicles. The area was about 100 feet long, and I needed to make sure I covered to whole area because she had been moving, and the key most likely bounced when it hit, and was in an area further along from where it had been released. Fortunately she had another key similar to the one that was lost, so I was able to get a reading off of it to know what I was needing to hear. I found a lot of different types of metal during the search, and it wasn’t until neared the end of the median that I found the key underneath the grass. When I brought it back to her, she was very relieved and happy to have it back. Glad to have made her day.
