Engagement Ring Lost in Cypress, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

I was out shopping today when I received an email from Russell asking for help finding his wife’s engagement ring. They had been out walking the day before when his wife swung her hand and her two rings (the wedding band and engagement ring) went flying off. Russell was walking behind his wife and was able to see the rings fly, and the location where they landed. The wedding band ended up rolling on the sidewalk, and was easily spotted and recovered. The engagement ring though landed in the mulch that bordered the sidewalk next to a short hedge. They looked around for it but were unsuccessful. Today Russell rented a metal detector to search for the ring and was again not able to find it. That is when he found me on The Ring Finders web site. I asked him to call me so I could ascertain the possibilities of a recovery, which he did. We arranged to meet about an hour later.

When I got to the area, Russell was waiting for me. He took me over to the spot and “walked” me through the loss. He showed me the stick he had placed at the spot so as to not forget where to begin his search. I then got my detector out and began a methodical search of the spot and surrounding area. I found numerous bits of foil, and other pieces of metal, but no ring. I then summarized that the ring may have bounced when it hit, and gone deeper into the hedge. I put the detector away, and got my pin pointer out to work in the hedge row. After about a 10-15 minute search, and outside of the search area I received a signal with the pin pointer down where the trunk of the hedge met with one of the large branches about 6-8 inches further into the hedge, at ground level covered with dead leaves, but could see nothing. I moved the many dead leaves and mulch out of the way, and then I saw it, the ring. I picked it up and turned to Russell and asked if this was what we were looking for. He got a big smile, but was amazed that it was not where he remembered seeing it hit. He and his wife have been married 1 1/2 years, and it was a blessing to be able to return this token of their love to them.

Wedding Ring Lost in Backyard in San Pedro, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

I received a call late this morning from Steve who had lost his wedding ring while gardening in his backyard. He had been getting his roses ready for the upcoming spring growing season mulching the area around each of his plants. It had been a cold day, and he had felt the ring a bit loose on his finger, but did not think much about it until later when after he had mulched all of his plants, he noticed it was gone. He looked all through the garden with no luck, and then found me on The Ring Finders web site. I let him know that I would be there as soon as possible, and when ready, I was on my way.

When I got there Steve took me to his yard, and showed me where he had been working. There was some wire to some lights that he was able to move, and some solar lights that I figured on working around. I was able to get to all of the areas that Steve showed me, but was unable to get a signal for the ring. The solar lights were providing a bit of a problem, but I worked around them as needed. I then went over the entire grass portion of his yard which was thick St. Augustine grass finding a dime and a penny. We talked, and then decided that we should detect the contents of the green waste bin, so Steve went out to get that ready. I told him I would go back once more and check the outer perimeter of the flower bed once more. I also worked closer to the solar lights, and near one was getting two signals, one strong one from the light post and another. I pulled the coil, and was still getting the second signal, and it was in the gold zone on my detector. I put in the pin pointer, and underneath a stalk of grass was his ring. I grabbed it and went out to tell Steve I had his ring, wherein he gave me a hug; he was so happy. It was so great to restore his joy! Another great day!

Two Rings Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from Dmitri yesterday regarding two rings that he had lost the night before. He and some friends had gone to the beach after dark, when Dmitri decided to go for a swim. Wisely he removed his two rings, and placed them on his shirt while he went in the water. When got out he went up and picked up his shirt, and remembered too late that his rings were there. He and his friends searched around for about an hour with no luck. Dmitri searched the internet, and found me through The Ring Finders web sight. We decided to meet as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach Dmitri and his family met me to show me the area he believed the loss to have taken place. The problem was that it was dark when the rings were lost, so being able to identify the exact area was very difficult, so I figured we would search quite a bit outside of the box. As I began, I was finding quarters and dimes, which to me was a very good sign that no one else had been through there. Also it did not look as though the county had cleaned the beach that morning which also made me more hopeful for a successful search. I continued to expand the area as Dmitri pointed out in pictures they had taken when they were there in the dark. I know how discouraging it can be for those we are trying to help when we keep pulling up bottle caps, pull tabs and miscellaneous coins, but Dmitri seemed to keep a positive attitude while I continued my search. After about 3 hours, I began a search along a ridge of sand just outside of the area I was shown by Dmitri, and got another good signal, but this time there in the sand was gold. I reached down and picked it up, Dmitri’s ring, then offered it to him. He was looking right at it but seemed a bit bewildered by the fact that it was actually found at first. He took the ring, then a few more scoops, and we had his second one. The word he said to his wife when he showed her the rings was, “Magic”. It sure is magic to see the smiles on the faces of those who have lost what they believe they might be lost forever, when it is handed back to them. Great day! Dmitri was camera shy, so I got to hold the rings for the blog.

Dmitri sent the following testimonial regarding the loss and recovery:

Hi Steve,

We would like to thank you once again for your great search of the rings today! It was a really great help to us and we are very happy! Best of luck to you and best wishes from us!
We are attaching our story for your website, as we discussed today:
———–
In the evening, I decided to swim in the ocean at Santa Monica beach. I left my rings on my T-shirt and after swimming I took it so abruptly so the rings fell in the sand. It was already dark, so I spent an hour trying to find them but it was not possible. I tried to take a picture of the place and views to be able to track this place. In the morning, I looked up in the Internet where I can buy or rent metal detectors, but all of them must be only shipped.

I had to be quick to start searching since other people could also find them. So, I googled the website theringfinders.com and read all amazing stories about wonderful results of their search. I found Steve Smith who covered our area. His reviews we excellent. He helped many people in the same situations, so I immediately called him.

Steve promptly asked me questions about the location, and we met in less than 2 hours. After identifying the area, he started searching. He found a lot of coins and can caps. He told me it was a good sign because it meant nobody was there, and there was a big chance the rings were still in the sand.

After 3 hours of searching, we went all over again, taking wider area into consideration. And suddenly at one more sound of metal Steve dug the sand and there found my ring. The second ring came right after it. They were around 5 inches deep in the sand, so obviously, they could not be found without Steve’s help. Steve said you should never give up while searching things in sand and he was absolutely right! Thank you, Steve!

Best Regards,

Dmitry & Natalia

Wedding Ring Lost While Gardening in Thousand Oaks, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

Andrew called me a few days ago explaining how he had been gardening in his yard, moving a lot of gravel around, and installing stone steps. When he was done with his work he noticed his ring was gone. He asked me questions usually asked by people who call, and I told him I would be able to help the next day if that would work for him. He thanked me, but told me he had purchased a metal detector, and was going to do a search on his own. I encouraged him, and tried to give as many pointers as I could so he could be successful. Later that next day I received another call from Andrew, he had been unable to find the ring, and asked if I could possibly come out and help. I told him I was going to be out in his area the next day, yesterday, and would drop by when I was done.

We connected, and I arrived at Andrew’s house. He took me out to the area where he believed the loss occurred, and showed me the many screws, nails and bits of metal he had found with his $49.00 detector, and I said at least he knew the detector was working. If he had not already purchased the detector I might have tried to discourage him a bit because most of the inexpensive detectors do not have to capability to distinguish metals like the ones I use. I always bring the best and most up to date detectors that can be purchased to my lost item recovery searches. He explained what he had been doing, and where he had been when moving the rocks around, so I then went to work. I swept my coil around the area he had been working, there was a lot of iron, but not the tones I was looking for. I then made a wide sweep, and way over to the right of the working area, I heard it, the tone I was listening for. I looked over at Andrew, and asked if he had been over on that side. I kept moving my coil over the tone as I asked. Andrew moved over, looked down, and saw a glint of gold coming from under a rock, and said that’s it! He reached down and retrieved the ring that had eluded him for 3 days. It was his wedding ring, that had been his dad’s wedding ring. Now that is special. What a great day, and much happiness!

Andrew sent the following to include in this post:

Two days ago I lost my wedding ring doing yard work. It was my fathers wedding ring so it had double sentimental value. My wife and I were sad about losing it so I went out and bought a cheap metal detector and found a bunch of screws. I googled ring finders and found Steve. I couldn’t believe he would come all the way out to Thousand Oaks from Palos Verdes for a donation but he did and much to my surprise he found it in no less than one minute. I took him to the part of my yard where I was putting in stepping stones into some 1” gravel. I had used my metal detector down a 4 foot path of rocks and like I said, only found screws. His metal detector was much more sophisticated then mine and with it and his expertise found my ring almost instantly. He told me it has a certain tone for gold. I just couldn’t believe it. We are so happy. Steve was super nice and very professional. If you lose a ring or anything else metal, I highly recommend you call him.

Diamond wedding Ring Lost in Grass in Long Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

I got a call from Jay this morning asking for help in finding his wife’s wedding ring. He had been at a place of business the night before, holding his wife’s ring in his pocket. When he reached in to get his keys, the action inadvertently pulled the ring out also. It was at night which made the search very difficult, but they did look very long and hard for it. They could not find it, so he came back this morning, and spent about 3 more hours looking, but to no avail. we agreed to meet at the spot of loss later in the afternoon.

I got there a little before Jay, and could see deep grass, so I could understand where their search would have been difficult, but it also gave me some relief, to know that it would not have been seen by a casual passerby, and taken. It was also white gold, which can be a little hard to see in grass because its mirror finish reflects the grass, making it look like grass itself. Well Jay showed me the area he believed the loss to have occurred, and I began my search. I worked through the area finding a few deep targets, but no ring. At each target I would let Jay know if it wasn’t the sound I was looking for or not. I then went to a different mode on the detector to make sure there was nothing being missed, still no ring. I then noticed Jay looking in the grass over in an area he had not pointed out, so I figured he must have been mulling over what had happened, and realizing that he may have been in an area different than what he originally thought. I started searching the new area, and had a target that was near the surface, but I thought too deep. I dug the target, but it turned out to be a small piece of construction material. I walked a few more steps, and got another deep target. One more sweep, and then got the shallow tone I was looking for, I looked up at Jay and said, “Now this one sounds good”. I pulled out the pin pointer, put it in the grass, and there was his wife’s ring. When he saw it he just could not believe it. He told me that they had just got married in April, so this loss meant a whole bunch to them. What a pleasure to bring the joy back to couples, especially newlyweds.

Gold Wedding Ring Lost in San Fernando Valley, CA Backyard…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I received a call from a young lady yesterday who explained that her husband lost his ring in the backyard. I had been waiting for a call back from someone, so I arranged to meet on the next day. The person did not call back, so I called them back and said that I could go immediately. They told me that it had been late at night, and the husband had been taking the ring off and putting it back on when he dropped it on the deck. When the ring hit the deck it was too dark to see, but they heard it roll to the edge, and then it was gone. They had searched that night, and then hours the next day to no avail.

When I got to their house, I was led to the backyard, and shown a nice new deck that had been built over a very steep hillside. I began my search at the top working around some metal that had been there. and then working down the hillside. I worked as much of the hill that I believed could have caught the ring on a downhill roll, but just came up with nothing but deck screws and nails, with the occasional beer can. I felt that I had completed a thorough search, but did not find the ring, so I went back to the deck, and sat in the area of the loss, contemplated and discussed the loss again with the husband and wife, that is when the wife said she thought it might be right where I began my search. I decided to remove the wires that were there, even though I did not know what they were attached to. As soon as I removed them the husband said that’s it, and I saw the slight glimmer of gold peeping out of the dirt from under where the wires had been. I removed the ring and carefully replaced the wires, with shouts of joy coming from them both. They asked that I did not identify them, but I will say they were very happy that the ring was found, and I will vouch for their smiles. It was explained to me that their rings had been sent to Brazil to be blessed by a priest before the wedding, and specially engraved, so how do you replace that? Another great day!

Tiny Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Backyard in Los Angeles, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

Lisa called last night wondering if I would be able to find her daughter’s diamond stud earring. I inquired as to where and how it was lost, and of course how long ago. Apparently her daughter was playing volley ball in the back yard when she went up against the net. At that time her earring hooked in the net and pulled off of her ear. She saw it fly off and land in the grass, but found searching for it an effort in futility. The loss happened about 45 minutes before Lisa’s daughter found me on the Internet, and the call was made. We arranged to meet today at about 11:30 AM.

I arrived just a bit early, and was able to park and enjoy the coffee I bought at the fast food restaurant on the way. I called Lisa to let her know I was outside. She led me to the area of the loss. They had cordoned off the area her daughter saw the earring fly into with volley balls (nice touch). The thatch was good and thick, perfect for hiding jewelry. I then asked to see the twin to the lost one. When Lisa showed it to me, I got a bit concerned; it was so small my pin pointer could only barely pick it up if I touched it, and my detector could only pick it up at about 1 inch. I proceeded real low and slow checking every faint sound. I then got a nice faint repeatable  signal, and went in with the pin pointer and my fingers, gently moving the grass around when I saw the thin pin shaped shank of the earring. I grabbed it, held it up, and handed it to a very surprised Lisa. This was a very precious item for her daughter, and she was very happy to know she would be able give it back to her. A real nice beginning of the day.

Diamond Stud Earring Lost in Cemetery in Valencia, CA…Found and Returned.

I received a call from Arvin last night asking if I would be able to help find a lost diamond stud earring in a cemetery. I told him I would help him only after we went to the main office, and received permission to do the search. I did let him know ahead of time, that diamond stud earrings are one of the hardest pieces of jewelry to find, because they are made with such a small amount of metal. We agreed to meet today at about 3:00 PM.

When we met, Arvin’s wife Larraine explained that it was their daughter Lauren who had lost the earring. Lauren’s grandmother had given her those earrings, so there was a very strong sentimental value attached to the missing jewelry. Larraine, Lauren and I went to the office where they explained what had happened, and I said that I would only be there for that particular search and then leave, so the manager gave us the go ahead for the search. When Arvin took us to the area, he and Lauren showed me the boundaries, and explained that Lauren had been holding her baby brother while the family were paying respects to Larraine’s grandparents. While Lauren had her brother, he reached up out of curiosity, grabbed her earring, and pulled it right out of her ear. She reached up, and all she had was the back stuck to her ear. They checked the brother’s hand, no earring. They checked the mat Lauren was sitting on, no earring. They then deducted that it had fallen into the thick grass. The family had searched for the earring for 2 days without success, so Lauren went to the internet, and found me on The Ring Finders site.

I began by testing my equipment on the remaining earring, and was able to get about 1 to 1 1/2 inches on the detector. I then checked my pin pointer, and it had to touch the earring in order to get a response, so I knew I had to pin point well with my detector. I was receiving many signals, many were too strong, but checked them all. I searched the original area I was shown, but did not find it. Then moved a few feet lower, and received a faint signal. I put the pin pointer in the thick grass, and got a response. I kept the pin pointer in the grass as I moved the grass around. I could hear the pin pointer, and was looking at the earring which I could barely see in the dirt below the grass, but there it was. I grabbed it by the shank, brought it up, and held it out for Lauren, she and her father were totally surprised. One of the hardest items to recover, found and returned. Needless to say, we all felt real good at that moment.

Lauren sent the attached testimonial:

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 I lost my diamond stud earring in the grass at Eternal Valley Cemetery. My little brother accidentally took it off my ear and it fell somewhere. We looked for two days but we couldn’t find it. On Monday, May 1, 2017 that night I searched up on google how to find an earring in the grass” and that’s where I found out about this website called, The Ring Finders. I read through the website and it said something about someone being able to find their diamond stud earring, in the grass with the help of whoever is in charge of this website. I looked for more information and then I read a name. Steve. And so I assumed that he was in charge of this website. And I was right. His number was there, so I tried calling him. We arranged a meeting for the next day, May 2, 2017 and that’s on a Wednesday. At 3pm. At first, I was hesitant. Although I’ve read his blogs about him being able to help some people, I was still a little worried. I thought, would he really be able to help us look for my earring? Because I know we’ve looked for two days and we didn’t find it. But I took my chances. I knew that diamond earring had a sentimental value to me, so I just hoped he would be able to help us. And he did! It took him an hour and I almost thought he would never find it, but he did. He found it. We were all so happy. My parents, and especially me. It was really unexpected, but with the help of Steve and his equipments, my earring was found. I can attest to this event, and I am a witness that The Ring Finders is legit.

Sincerely, 

Lauren

Newlywed Wedding Ring Lost at Newport Beach, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

A week ago Saturday, the 22nd, I had fallen asleep in my chair in the living room, I woke up close to 2:00 AM, and went to the kitchen to get a drink of water before going to bed, when I saw that I had received an email from Mary regarding her husband’s lost ring on my phone. I checked the email, and saw that I had received it just minutes before at 1:51 AM, so I responded immediately. She responded right back and said it might have been lost in the water probably when they were playing with the football, so I checked the tide chart to see when the next lowest tide would be, which would be the next afternoon. I also told her that I was headed to bed, and asked if she would give me a call. Mary responded back, that I could call her, which I did in the morning to get all the specifics. Mary related to me that she and her husband had only been married 4 months, so I could tell this recovery was special. She also said it would be difficult for her to meet me there because of the distance to the beach from her home. She did the next best thing by providing me photographs from satellites that helped me narrow down the area, so with the pictures and her interview, I waited until the tide started to drop the next day, and made my way to the beach.

When I got there, the beach was starting to fill in with people, so I got started, working in and out of the water, waiting for children to play, and then moving forward, waiting for people walking by, and then moving forward, making sure I covered every inch, as much as possible. Targets were few. I was not finding too much, and after about 2 hours started to get a bit discouraged myself, as I saw the beach getting more crowded, and the tide starting to come back in. Then on the outer edge of the search area, I found a set of USMC dog tags (which I will be sending back to the DOD) wherein I started to feel like I just might find the ring. About 1/2 hour later I got a good signal in the head phones, dug, and it was the ring, this made my day.

As soon as I was able I sent a photo of the ring to Mary, and she was surprised, but very happy. We decided to meet today, a week later for the return because of her schedule. She was willing to drive to me to receive the ring, but  I decided to drive out towards her direction to make the return easier for her, because a round trip for her to me would have been almost 400 miles. When we met, and she saw me coming with her husband’s ring, she seemed a bit overcome with emotion, but instantly happy. It is a beautiful thing to see the joy a return of those items such as wedding rings bring to those who have them returned. One look at the picture above, and you see joy that is not manufactured, that’s what this is all about!

Mary sent this testimonial to include here:

We were looking forward to spending a day at the beach and had a great time there. However, after driving 3 hours home, my husband realized his ring was missing. We had pretty much just accepted that we wouldn’t be getting the ring back because for all we knew the ocean could have taken it anywhere! After going to bed, I just couldn’t sleep thinking about it and started to research of our insurance policy would cover the lost ring. In my searches, the Ring Finder website came up and I clicked on it out if curiosity. After reading Steve’s testimonials, I read about another couple who had lost their ring in the water. This gave me some hope, so I sent Steve an email late at night figuring we had nothing to lose! I was surprised when he emailed back right away, volunteering to go look for it the very next day.  I kept checking my email the next day to see if we had anything from Steve, and a few hours after he started looking for it, we received a picture of the recovered ring! We were BEYOND happy and grateful for the work he put into finding it!  We highly recommend Steve if you’re reading this wondering if you should contact him.  The sentimental value of things like this can’t be replaced, and he is such a genuine person to work with!  He was so kind during the whole process and even volunteered to meet us closer to our home to save us some of the drive.  He is very professional – the ring was even returned to us in a little jewelry box! I can’t say how happy I am enough that we have the ring back.  Steve offers a great service and you can tell he really cares about helping people recover their valuable and sentimental items.  God bless you, Steve! We are so so grateful!

Key Lost in Los Angeles, CA Park…Found and Returned.

from Redondo Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I was having lunch yesterday with my wife and son who we were fortunate to be able to visit with his busy college schedule, when I received a call from Nate about his key that he lost at his local park. Nate had been exercising, and left his key and phone in a specific spot in the grass so as not to lose them while running. When he was finished, he picked up his phone, and forgot the key. When he got home he realized the key was still back at the park and went back to search for it. He told me that he searched for about 4 hours, and was not able to find it. I told him that because I was with my family, I could meet with him in the morning today to do a search. I figured that if he could not find it with a thorough search that no one was going to happen upon it before I got there.

I met Nate at the park at about 10:00 AM , and he took me to the area where he left his phone and key. It wasn’t huge, and the grass was not very high, but just high enough to hide a small item such as a key. I grabbed my detector, and pin pointer, and checked every signal, some were deep, and some surface (bottle caps and such). After about 3 passes in the grid I got a good signal, looked down, and in the grass saw Nate’s key. I walked over to him asking a question about his key when I opened my hand to show that it had been found. He just could not believe it was still there, thinking that possibly a dog might have eaten it, or someone might have found it. This key was his house key, and was so important that he had spent 4 hours searching for it, and looking on the internet in hopes of finding a way to recover it, where he found me on The Ring Finders site. I am glad he was successful in his internet search, and that I was able to be a part of the operation; GREAT SMILE!

Nate sent the following:

Hey! It was nice meeting you as well and I thank you again for helping me out.

Yesterday (03/24/17) I lost my house key at the park and I searched 3-4 hours for it on my own and had no luck. I called Steve and he said he couldn’t make it out that day but tomorrow would be better. We agreed to meet the next morning and he was there on time. He asked me a few intelligent questions, and his patience was remarkable. The hardest part about finding the key was that it was not on a keychain and not uniquely designed, but it still only took him 15 minutes to find it! I really needed that key to get in and out of my house. He pretty much made my week by finding it, and I thank him for taking the time to help me out. He didn’t make me feel like I was wasting his time, and I could tell he enjoys his job and takes it seriously. Thank you Steve!
