I got a call from Andrew yesterday about a ring his father lost at the beach. For Father’s Day the family buried their dad Edgar in the sand, and when he rose up out of the sand, he began to brush the sand off of his clothes when he felt his wedding ring slide off of his finger. The ring was gone immediately. They looked and looked, but were unable to find it. I told them I would leave immediately to come and help.

I got to the spot of the loss, and Edgar showed me what had happened, so I began a grid in the most likely spot, and worked out from it. I covered the whole area finding a few coins, bottle caps and other pieces of metal, but no ring. I decided to cross grid knowing that at times a ring or coin can land on edge, and only be found going in a particular direction. I did another grid perpendicular to the previous one, and then received the signal I was looking for, scooped up the sand, shook it out, and had the ring. Edgar and the family were very happy. Not a very happy thing to lose on Father’s Day, but definitely a happy thing to find! Smiles all around!

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

I had just gotten home from recovering an engagement ring, when a call came in from Jason who had lost his wedding ring at the beach. I needed to eat, because I hadn’t eaten all day, so I asked if he could wait, and he agreed to. I let him know I would be on my way as soon as I completed my meal and would let him know.

When I got to the beach Jason and his wife met me, and they took me directly to the area they had been. Wisely Jason had used landmarks to identify where they had been, which helped put me in a good place to help them faster. He had been worried that the incoming tide would have washed his ring into the sea, but from what he told me, I assured him, that even though the water would come up to where they had been sitting, I didn’t think it would wash the ring away. I began my pass, and took about 3-4 swings when I got the signal in the headphones. One scoop, and his ring was in my hand, held out to him. They were surprised it was so quick, but the fact that Jason had used landmarks to get back to the spot helped me to help him. To make the recovery more special, Jason and his wife were going to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks; how cool is that? What a great day, and what great smiles.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost at Venice Beach, CA…Found and Joyfully Returned.

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

I got a call from Alan yesterday afternoon. His wife had been putting sunscreen on at the beach, and had taken her ring off to do it. The ring had been in her lap, and then she stood up to do something. It was at that moment she realized the ring had been in her lap, and was now buried in the sand. Alan, and his wife, with the help of their friend proceeded to sift through the sand, but could not find the ring. I discussed the loss with Alan, and told him to secure the area, so that someone else could not lay out their towels over the area of the loss. I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know as soon as I arrived.

When I got there Alan met me on the strand, and he took me over to where they were sitting. I could see that they had created a circle around the area, and I knew that if the ring was there we would have a quick search. The reason I ask a lot of questions, and ask people to stay where they believe to loss occurred, is so they can help me to help them, and I can make the process less “painful” for them. I searched all around the center of the circle with nothing. I then went to move a beach chair when my coil swept over the area, and I could hear the low gold tone in the headphones. I missed it on the first scoop, and scooped again. There it was. I reached in and pulled out a beautiful diamond and white gold wedding ring that I handed over to Alan’s wife, who immediately became very emotional; she was so happy. To see the joy all around, and smiles everywhere; made for a great end of a day.

Electronic Car Key Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

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

A few days ago Caroline called after losing her electronic car key at the beach while on a church outing with friends. She and her friends had been participating in many different activities, and she had put the key in her sweater for safekeeping. It wasn’t until ready to go that she realized the key was missing. They looked, but were running out of time, because they had to leave in a while. When she called, I could tell she was desperate to recover the key, and told her that I would get there as quickly as possible.

When I arrived she took me over to where they had been, and I began to ask the questions I normally ask, which made Caroline a bit discomforted, and I understood she was running out of time. So we began. I started where she said they began, but that did not produce, and she asked that I go to a new place. I tried to explain that my process was slow and deliberate, because I did not want to miss anything that might have been her key. She asked me to move to another place to try again, it wasn’t working.  I could tell she, and she thought I were working against the clock. She then came to me and let me know that she had to leave. I let her know that I would finish gridding the whole area they had been in until I felt I was finished: I wasn’t working against the clock. Now I felt relaxed, and fell into my normal grid work, and within 5 or 6 passes (about 10 minutes later) I had Caroline’s key in my scoop. I figured she was gone already, so I gave her phone a call that went directly to voicemail. I turned around looking in the general vicinity of where they had been, when I saw her moving in my direction asking if I had found it. I held it up for her to see, and she proceeded to dash across the sand to give me a big hug and receive her key back. It did make it easier for both of us to allow me to work at this process the way I know that works best. It was wonderful to see Caroline go from a very distraught person, to one filled with extreme joy!

Wedding Ring Set lost at Topanga State Beach, CA…Found and Joyously Returned.

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

Genevieve contacted me late yesterday afternoon asking if I could help in finding her wedding set (engagement ring and wedding band). I asked her a few questions, and she let me know that the loss had happened not too long before her call which encouraged me at the possibility of a recovery. I told her that I would leave immediately in order to not allow any more time to elapse, causing the recovery to be much harder. I then asked her to secure the area, so that it would not be disturbed any further, and I was on my way.

When I got to the beach, I met her husband Carlo who led me to where Genevieve was waiting. They had laid out towels to secure the area where they thought rings had been lost. We discussed what had happened, and then I began the search. After about 3 short passes I got a good signal, dug, and in the scoop was Genevieve’s wedding band. I held it up, and said #1, she was so excited, as was Carlo. I continued my search working out of the area we discussed when I received another good signal, looked down and could see a small part of the edge of the second ring. In went the scoop, and out came the engagement ring. Needless to say, there were two very happy people at the beach yesterday. They had totally given up hope before they called. The call to me was a last resort. I am so glad I was able to answer that call, and restore their joy. Great day!

Genevieve sent the following testimonial:

“Steve came to the rescue when I honestly though I had forever lost my rings! A lazy day at the beach in Malibu quickly turned to a really stressful afternoon when I realized we were on our way home…without my engagement ring and wedding band. Luckily, when I contacted Steve, he immediately responded. Within 10-15 minutes of arriving at the spot on the beach where I had hung out, he had found BOTH the rings!! I was immediately in disbelief that I was able to get them back and extremely grateful for Steve’s services. He was very friendly, highly skilled with the gear he brought and pinpointed with good accuracy where the rings were in the sand. I’ve never been so overcome with relief and gratitude, thank you Steve for doing what you do!!!”

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

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

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.

Venice, Florida ring recovery

Susana and Kharlo Quinones were in Venice for their usual visit all the way from Orlando to the dog beach in Venice, Florida.

While playing with their dog, Susana felt her ring come off her finger and had a general idea of where it had fallen.

After searching in the sand, they googled lost rings and metal detectors and found SRARC’s email addresses. Member Stan Flack emailed Susana back and arranged for member Joe Borg to contact Susana direct and set up a time to meet as soon as possible.

Susana met Joe early the next morning and downloaded him on the details. Joe went straight to work and within 10 minutes had found Susana’s ring to the delight of a very happy Susana smiles for everyone.

Well done Joe.

Heirloom Pendant and Chain Lost in Malibu, CA…Found and Happily Returned.

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

I received an email from Aarti last night regarding a pendant and chain she lost that day. She had been at the beach, and realized after she left that it was missing. This pendant her mother had made, after her father died 2 years ago. It had a little lens inserted in it, that when held up to the light enabled the viewer to read a special prayer dedicated to her father. She searched her car, and every other place it could have possibly been with no luck. She then surmised that it must be at the beach, lost somewhere in the sand. she called, and we discussed all of the possibilities, and arranged to meet this morning for a search.

When we met, Aarti took me to the area, and explained what she believed to have happened. We discussed the possibilities, and I told her how I would conduct my search, and then began my search. She told me that she was going to the car to look in that area just to see if it may have fallen off there, and I continued my search. I kept searching, finding numerous bottle caps, and other small pieces of metal. I then got a good strong repeatable signal, and when I dug the chain came out. I scanned the spot again, and in the same hole was the pendant. I looked to the area of Aarti’s car, and saw she was sitting there, so I gathered my equipment and started towards her. She saw me coming, and walked over. I told her that I thought I had been detecting long enough, to which she gave me a quizzical look. It was then that I held out my closed hand, she open hers, into which I dropped to her surprise, the pendant and chain. She was so happy, and relieved to have this special piece of jewelry back. I was so happy to have been able to help her today.

I woke up this morning and checked my email. I found that I had received an email from Clemens about his wedding ring that he had lost the night before. I asked if he would call me so I could ask him about the loss. He called and described what had happened, and everything seemed to be in his favor, so I told him I would meet him at the beach as soon as I finished my breakfast. Clemens and his family are here from Vienna, Austria, and I knew it would be sad to have to leave such a cherished possession behind when he had to go home.

When I got to the beach Clemens and his young son met me and took me to the spot of the loss. He explained what happened, and I figured there was a good chance of a recovery. I began my grid, and made about 5 passes. I stopped to talk to Clemens when behind me I heard the sound of a tractor. It was the County beach cleaner towing a sifting machine behind the tractor, and he was stopped wanting to begin his pass right where I was looking for Clemens’ ring. Also this was in the wet sand where they never usually clean. Now in all of the years I have been helping people, never have I experienced the greedy audacity of the County employees like today, he knew what I was looking for. This guy wanted to get this ring before I did. I told Clemens not to move and make the County guy go around the area we searching, which he finally did. I made 2 more passes, and boom, Clemens’ ring in my scoop. He was very happy, as was I to be able to hand the ring back to him. Another great day!

Car Key Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA…Found and Returned.

Contact: 1-310-953-5268

I had just finished dinner last night when I received a call from Cagil who had lost his car key in the sand at the beach. He had gone surfing, and buried his key at the high tide line so no one could find it while he was in the water. He had marked the area with a stick, in order to find it when he got out. What happened though was that while he was surfing, someone moved the stick, so he was unable to pin point the exact area where his key was. Cagil searched for over 2 hours, and was very frustrated at not being able to find his key, and the tide was rising. He then found me on The Ring Finders web site, and I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach, I met Cagil’s friend Easy, who contacted Cagil, then we all went out to the spot where Cagil remembered burying his key. I began my search with no signal whatsoever. Cagil then directed me to another spot where he thought the key might be. I searched one side of the area with nothing, then I moved to the other side, and on the first pass got a solid signal. I scooped, and shook out the sand. There in the bottom of the scoop was the key. Needless to say, Cagil was very happy, not only because all of his belongings were in the car, but also the parking lot closed after dark, and he would have gotten a substantial ticket for having his car there. Well he was also able to finally get out of the wetsuit he had on for hours. It was very nice to be able to help him out last night, and see him happy when I left.
