This morning at about 8:00, I received a call from a young lady telling me she had lost her wedding ring. I could hear the emotion in her voice, which let me know she was very distraught. She lost it the day before, and had searched for it herself and was not able to find it. We arranged to meet as soon as possible. I knew the area she lost it in, and also knew the beach cleaners worked that area meticulously, so I was a bit worried initially about being able to find it, knowing time is the enemy we deal with. When we walked down to the area she was in, and showed me the general location, I could see that the beach cleaners had not gone over that portion of the beach, so I was very encouraged. I set up a perimeter, and began my grid. I went out, and then came back, a foil lid, a dime, a penny, and then I heard that low growling sound in my earphones from my Minelab Excalibur ll. I was standing next to her when I pulled my scoop up to see what was inside, and looked at one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I have seen. I had showed her the foil, the dime, and the penny when I found them, so I imagine she expected the same when I reached into my scoop. All I can say is that the look of surprise, and joy which appeared on her face when I showed her what I had found was priceless. She and her husband had just gotten married last Summer, and there were some other things that made this ring very important to her. She said her husband had reassured her that it could be replaced, but she knew it would not be the same ring.

This nice young lady sent me the following email, wanting to share her experience as to what this recovery meant to her:

I lost my wedding ring at the beach on a Friday. My husband and I searched and searched the area with no success. It was a rough night to say the least. Early on Saturday morning I called the first 800 number I found after searching on the internet for help. I was in tears as the man I spoke with told me he could help me and gave me Steve Smith’s phone number. I was speaking with Steve minutes later and an hour later, Steve met me at the beach. Within ten minutes and three digs, I had my wedding ring back on my finger. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for Steve. He was quick to respond, very professional, and successful in finding my ring. Thank you Steve!!!

So the story of this ring continues. I am so happy to be able to bring this joy to people.

Lost ring

I was detecting down at Huntington Beach, California when one of the Lifeguards riding an ATV came up to me and told me about a couple that were looking for their wedding ring, thinking I might be able to help them. I went down to see what had happened, and to ask if I could help. When I got to them, I could see that they had purchased a new metal detector, but one that would not work well in the wet sand. It was at that point that I realized I might be able to help them find their ring, yet I was not able to find it that evening.

At this point I will let them tell their story that they so graciously wrote to put into this blog…

 

What a miracle it was that we met you Steve!

Our 1 year anniversary was less than 2 weeks away.  My husband lost his wedding band while he was surfing in pretty rough conditions.  I immediately assumed that it was lost forever, somewhere in the belly of the sea.  But we still went back to look for it the next day, and that’s when we met Steve.  He graciously offered to help us look for the ring until he had to leave for the day.  In that short time, he wasn’t able to find the ring but we shared our information and told him about the inscriptions in case he was to ever come across it.

The next morning, we were surprised when my husband received a text from Steve telling us that he was going to go back and look for our ring.  That afternoon, my husband thought he’d swing by and do some more looking himself, and when he got there, he saw Steve was still there, waist deep in the water searching for our ring. My husband realized that if Steve wasn’t able to find it, that we probably wouldn’t either, and he left the beach.   A few hours later, Steve sent us a text to tell us that he’d found the ring!

The following night we met up with him and he shared the incredible story about how he’d found the ring.  It brought me to tears!  What a miracle it was that we met Steve!

Steve – we could never thank you enough for what an amazing blessing you were to us and how dedicated you were to finding our ring. Thank you a million times, from the bottom of our hearts – you’ll never know how much this meant to us!
 It is a pleasure to be able to help people find those things that are most precious to them, and a pleasure to have met this wonderful couple. I am happy to be associated with The Ring Finders; what a great association of international metal detectors.

Hi, my name is Steve Smith.

I am retired, which allows me to do a search at all hours of the day or night. I look forward to being a help to all who call. This hobby has been a great learning experience, and I have made sure that for the searches that I go on, I am using the best up to date equipment that is available. I have also found that being a member of The Ringfinders, and helping people find what they thought was “Lost Forever” has been a very rewarding experience. Please make the possibility of finding your valuable a success by calling as soon as you can after the loss.

Best regards,

Steve Smith
