Jose called last night about 7:00 PM asking if I was the guy who finds rings, and I told him I was definitely one of the guys who help people find their lost rings. He told me his wife had lost her wedding and engagement rings (they were soldered together) at the beach earlier that day. After we talked for while and I asked a lot of questions, I let him know I was on my way, and would let him know when I arrived.

When I got to the beach it was already dark, and they were waiting in the parking lot. I met his wife Esmeralda and we talked about the loss as we walked out to the area they believed the loss to have occurred. I found out that she had these rings for 17 years. Esmeralda remembered taking her rings off to put on sunscreen and putting the rings in her shorts pocket. Later as they were getting ready to leave, she shook her pants out, and ring was gone into the soft sand. They told me they had searched the sand for over 3 hours before they called me, so by the time I arrived it had been at least 4 to 5 hours since they knew the ring was lost. When we got back to the area the darkness made it difficult to identify the exact spot they were, and they gave me an estimated area to search, so I began. I kept working my way out pulling up bottle cap after bottle cap. Finally After they thought I was going out of the area they thought the rings might have been lost, I showed them the bottle caps. I had at least 60 by that time, and I knew that for every dig I make their anticipation rate goes up, and then down until people begin to get discouraged. When we discussed the possibilities, Jose and Esmeralda were basically ready to throw in the towel, but I said “look, none of us has to go to work tomorrow, so I will continue”. Even at that they went back over by the parking lot as I continued my search. I searched down the slope, and then began my search in the opposite direction from my beginning search, when after about 5 passes and over 100 bottle caps later, one broken bottle, and a total search time of about 2 hours, one more good signal, and I had a beautiful set of diamond rings in my scoop. I threw away all the trash, and headed back to the parking lot with the rings on my little finger. As I got closer Jose and Esmeralda saw me coming and rose to meet me. I was looking down at the sand when I explained how I searched each area without any luck, but when I touched on the last area, I said, “AND THEN I FOUND THIS” as I opened my hand to show the rings. Esmeralda immediately went to tears and gave me a big hug, while Jose paced back and forth in total disbelief. I know that after all that time of their searching, and then watching me pull up bottle cap after bottle cap, they thought it would not be possible to find the rings, but WE ARE THE RING FINDERS, and if it is there we can find it. What an awesome couple, what an awesome night!

Esmeralda sent the following testimonial:

Steve is an absolute God send! He is professional, kind, courteous and relentless! My husband and I were at Santa Monica Beach where I took off my wedding bands and placed them in my shorts pocket. About three or so hours later I realized that I did not have my rings on and that I had left them in my pocket. When I went to go look in the pocket, which I had hung on our beach chair, I found out with great disbelief, and immediate alarm that my rings were missing. I immediately started to cry and panic, while my husband and I dug through the sand all around us. Hours later we decided to ask the lifeguard if anyone turned any rings in to him but to our dismay, he said no. He did say however, that he had some cards for people who found lost jewelry. I called the person on the first card that was handed to me but the phone just rang and rang. I called again and still got no answer. My husband called the person, Steve Smith, using the information on the second card and he received a quick and friendly answer. We were concerned that it was close to 8:00 pm, which is when the beach parking lot closed, but Steve stayed calm and told my husband that he would find other parking and for us not to worry about that. That in itself let me know how great a person Steve was without even meeting him. We were assured that he would come out as soon as possible -and he did. My husband and I told ourselves that we had a lot of faith and hope that the person that God sent to us would find our rings, but we’re also realistic. The fact of the matter was that it was past 8 PM at night and dark, plus we were sitting on a huge beach- sure we gave Steve an approximation as to where we were sitting, but with so many beach visitors moving around in the sand all day long, what were the chances of the rings been recovered? Our hearts aches knowing that there was a chance that we would never recover the wedding bands that my husband placed on my finger at our wedding a little over 17 years ago. We went through so many emotions that night, including a lot of praying as well as a lot of crying. When we wanted to give up, Steve was the first to say that he had all night and that we would get them back. This gave me and my husband great hope once again. About 2 1/2 hours after calling Steve out, he came walking back towards us and let us know about the specific effort he made to find our rings. Steve let us know that he found a lot of bottle caps and other items that were not our rings. As he talked about the process, I felt a sense of dread and great loss but at the same time I felt thankful that Steve spent so much time and energy really trying to help us. Just then, Steve pulled out my wedding rings from his fanny pack. He kept talking but I couldn’t hear anything else out of his mouth, I just saw my cherished rings and immediately started sobbing and with much gratitude, I gave Steve the biggest hug. He was truly our Angel that night. My husband and I are very thankful beyond words for all the effort that Steve put in to find something that is invaluable to us. If you or a loved one has lost a ring or another item that a metal detector can locate, Steve is your man!

Friday afternoon I received a call from Madison. She had lost her ring at the beach earlier, and after a relentless effort to find it by her and her family, she got on the internet and found The Ring Finders where she got my name and number. She asked if would be able to help, and I let her know that I was on my way and would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach and walked out, Madison met me and walked me over to the suspected area of the loss. I could see an area about 8 foot in diameter that had been scooped out and surrounded by a berm about 8 inches high; this where they had searched for the ring. She explained that her mother had given the ring to her 3 years earlier, and that it meant a whole lot to her. Her father told me that she had been tearfully distraught since she knew the ring was missing. They explained that Madison had taken it off and put it into a hat so as not to lose it, but not remembering, later in the day shook out the hat, and the ring was gone. They were on vacation from London, UK, and Madison thought it was lost forever. I got right to work, and after 3 passes in the grid, I received a solid signal in the berm on the edge of the scooped out area. I scooped out at least 3 times, where they had unknowingly buried it much deeper than it had already sunk into the sand. I finally had the ring in the scoop, pulled it out to show Madison who was overcome with joy, I mean LOOK AT THAT SMILE! It was so awesome to bring her joy back!

Kellen called, he had lost his wedding ring in the harbor where he, family, and friends had rented a house for their vacation. Across the street from where they were staying was a little beach with a swim platform about 70 feet out in the water. While he was walking to the swim platform, he was fingering his ring trying to make sure it did not fall off, but it was a little loose to start with and it slipped off of his finger to his surprise. He immediately tried to catch it but it was already gone in the chest deep water. This was the ring his wife had given him 10 years ago when they were married, and he didn’t want to lose it. He dove and dove about 30 times trying to find it but the bottom was covered in muck and some type of small mussel which made it very difficult to identify the ring in the murky water. He found me online and asked for help in finding the ring. I checked the tide chart, and saw the tide was rising, so we made arrangements for me to come back in the evening at the next low tide.

When I arrived Kellen was waiting. I donned my wetsuit, and he and I discussed how the ring was lost, where he thought it might be in relation to the swim platform, and at what angle he had entered the water. With that information I walked out to the area and began the search. I got a real good signal and tried to scoop, but had a hard time retrieving the object. The mussels on the bottom were tied together with what seemed to be a spiderweb like algae which made it difficult to get the scoop in and out. I kept working on that signal until I ended up with an aluminum bottle. I continued the search, next finding an old crusted folding knife. I worked a grid shallower and shallower until in about waist deep water I received a nice smooth tone in the headphones. I dug, and in one scoop I had the object, so I knew it was shallow. I shook the scoop out but the mussels and algae had to be removed by hand to search for the metal item. It was almost dark, but when I removed the last bit of mussels, I could see the ring in the bottom of the scoop. I reached in, and slipped it on my finger so as not to lose it, then looked to the shore where Kellen was sitting, and raised my detector and scoop to let him know we had success. When I got to shore I handed the ring to Kellen who identified it as his. His wife had been out riding bikes with friends, and she pulled up as Kellen and I were talking at the curb. She was very happy to see the ring again as well. Really a great feeling to be able to be a help to others, doing what you enjoy!

I got a call this afternoon from a pretty distraught young lady. Taylor explained how she was at the beach with friends, took her engagement ring off and inserted it into her bathing suit top. She then moved around their position where the towels were, and then went down to the water. When she got back to lay down she realized the ring was gone, and began to freak out. I said to secure the area where they were laying in order to not let anyone lay their towels over the possible area of the loss, and told her I would be on my way in order to make sure I was the first detector to hit the area.

When I got there Taylor met me and took me to the dry sand area where she thought the ring might have fallen out of her bathing suit at first. I worked a tight slow grid, and came up with only 3 quarters and a few bottle caps, no ring. She showed me the path she took to the water, and I searched that whole area as well, no ring. I then took off my shoes, and prepared to search the wet sand into the water. There was another detectorist in the wet sand, and I was a bit worried he had already scanned the area I was going to search. Taylor’s fiancé James then told me that when the loss occurred it had been high tide, so I started my search from the high tide line and down. I made about 5 passes in my grid when I got a nice foil sound about 4 inches down. I scooped the sand, and when I dumped it, the round bottom side of Taylor’s ring was showing. Her fiancé saw it at the same time as I did. I brought it up with my scoop, retrieved the ring, a beautiful diamond halo ring with a pear shaped center stone, and handed it to James who then took it to Taylor and placed it back on her finger. Needless to say her joy was fully restored, and there were smiles all around. A great time was had by all!

Yuxi called last night, she had lost her engagement ring while cleaning the sand off of her belongings. She said she would wait at the beach, and I told her I would be on my way immediately. She sent me a text with the area she was at, and I knew the parking lot was closed for the night, so I would have to park pretty far from the area.

When I got to the beach, being Friday night at a very popular beach, I had to park over 1 mile away. Fortunately I have a Segway MiniPro, so I grabbed my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and headed down the bike path with my headlight turned on. When I got to the spot, I saw Yuxi looking at her phone and asked if she was waiting for someone to help find her ring, and she said she was. I must have been a sight to her, 6 foot standing another 6 inches taller on a moving platform with all my equipment, lights and all. She took me over to the area, and showed me where she thought it was lost, Which was maybe 8 x8 feet square (not very large). I could see a bunch of sand that had been scraped out, and a slight hole, so I started there. The ring was not there. I made another pass, and got a good signal outside of the dug out spot, put the scoop in, and found Yuxi’s ring. She was very happy. She and her fiancé Chenglong have matching engagement rings, so it would have been very disappointing for her to lose hers. I got some pictures, and we talked a while, they were so happy! I then hopped back on my Segway for my trek back down the bike path to my car, a very joyful evening indeed!

I was sitting at home when I received a call from David, he said that he had lost his wedding ring at the beach earlier and wondered if I could come to find it for him. The ring had been left with their belongings on the towel, when, then his wife Maria picked up something on the towel and the ring was swallowed up by the sand. He said he and his wife had not moved from the area of the loss, and would remain there until I came. It seemed as though they were doing everything right to enable me to help them, so I decided to grab my equipment and go right away.

Traffic was on my side and I got there a little sooner than I thought I would. It was after dark now so we needed to coordinate via phone in order to get together. David found me on the bike path, and walked me over to the area. They had left their towel exactly where they had been sitting, so I was encouraged for a recovery. One pass, one bottle cap, and then a good signal, one more scoop, and there was the ring in the bottom of my scoop. I forgot my headlamp in my vehicle, so it made it a little difficult locating the ring in the scoop, but once found I was able to hand it back to David who told me they had been married for 2 1/2 years. Dave and Maria could sleep well last night. It is always great to see the smiles after a successful recovery!

I got a text from Dino that I did not see until early in the morning asking if I were the Ring Finder that I answered in the affirmative. He got back to me later in the morning stating that he had been at the beach with family, when they flew into panic mode. One of the ladies had been holding onto her husband’s rings when he went into the water, but when they were ready to go she looked and 2 of them had come off of her finger and lost in the fine sand. Luckily they were able to find one of the rings, but the other eluded them. I told Dino I would come immediately because I knew this beach is cleaned meticulously by the county, and I was hoping to beat the machines to the spot.

When I pulled up to park my phone rang, it was Dino, a little disheartened. He told me he had gone out to the area of the loss and could see that the machines had gone through exactly where they had been, and asked me what I thought we should do. I let him know that I was there already, and there is always hope when it comes to ring searches. When I got to the spot it didn’t look good, the beach was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. He showed me where they were sitting, and I could see that there was about a 7 foot wide swath the machines had left while avoiding the trash cans. Dino asked how it looked, and I admitted it did not look very promising except for that 7 foot wide section. I said, “we could only hope it was lost in that area”. I began my grid through the whole area including the untouched swath, 1 pass, 2 passes, then on the 3rd pass just at the edge of that 7 foot wide swath I got a nice signal, put in my scoop and pulled out the ring. Dino couldn’t believe it; I couldn’t believe it! What were the odds, really! What a great morning! I love this service!

Saturday morning I received a desperate email from Katie. She had lost her gold coin ring in the water at the beach. She really wanted to know what the possibilities were of finding it, and if I would be willing to go. Her words in the email were, “This ring is the most valuable thing I own holding sentimental value beyond comparison to anything else. It means more to me than any object I have.” Her mother had made identical rings for her and her sister from her grandfather’s coin collection. I asked if she could meet me there immediately because it was low tide, and good for a possibility of a recovery. She was at work and not able to go, but did agree to send me pictures of the area of the loss. I got her pictures, knew the spot, and decided to right away.

When I got there the beach was full of people in and out of the water, but I was able to work a slow grid in and out of the crowd fighting the waves trying to be as thorough as possible. After 2 hours I decided to call it a day as the tide was coming in making it a more difficult search. I sent a text to Katie letting her know the outcome of my search, but I told her I would go back to try again if she would meet me there at the next low tide about 9:00 PM. She agreed to meet me, so I got down to the spot at about 9:15 PM. I had my wetsuit on to get wet so I did not have my phone with me. I looked around and no one came over, so I decided to begin another search when while I was out in the water a gentleman (Katie’s boyfriend) came out into the water to ask if I was here to find a ring for someone. I said I was and walked out to meet Katie who then told me she had given me the wrong site to search earlier. She had checked her landmarks, and realized her mistake, the actual spot was about 600 feet north of where my original search took place.

I began a new search in and out of the water working in the direction she showed me. After about an hour of searching I received a real good signal in the headphones. It took a couple of scoops and a little shaking of the sand when I saw the gold and the roundness of the coin implant in the ring, when I let out a whoop in the darkness (it was about 10:10 PM). Katie and her boyfriend came running over, and I held out my hand to Katie with her ring in it. When she saw the ring she gave me one of the strongest hugs ever, and was so overjoyed at having it back. It is truly a wonder to see the incredible joy restored when a recovery is made. I really enjoy this service of bringing smiles back to people who thought that what they lost, was gone forever.

Katie sent the following testimonial:

I contacted Steve because I lost one of my most important possessions in the Pacific Ocean, on one of the largest beaches in Orange County. As I was swimming my fingers shrank from the cold and suddenly I felt my ring slip off my finger into oblivion. I tried to catch it but I couldn’t, and neither could my boyfriend who was near me. We searched forever in the surf and the through the sand however we knew it was useless. With complete devastation I went home. That ring was a family heirloom and I lost it. I actually dreamt about it that night and woke up with the simple idea of googling “how to find a ring lost in the ocean?” And Ring Finders came up. I found Steve and was very impressed by his bio and finding record. So I sent him an email where he responded within 10 minutes. Then we spoke on the phone where he asked where I was, what time, how far out I was, how tall I am, the works. He knew high tides and low tides and the perfect times to search. I showed him the location where I lost it on a map via screenshots and by 10:30-11am he was already there at Hunting Beach looking for it. Around 2 he texted me to let me know so far no luck but he will continue after high tide has gone down and asked if I could meet him there after I get off work. I would up arriving around 9pm only to discover that I had circled the wrong spot on the map and Steve had been searching in the wrong spot. However he didn’t seem the least bit annoyed and after we found the correct spot it did not take him more than 45 minutes to find my ring. Steve has the entire set up, he was out there with a wet suit and all. I trust this man could find the Holy Grail. I simply could not believe that he has actually found my ring! He was amazing and so nice! And after everything was found and photos were taken I was shocked to learn that now at around 10pm he was on his way to another search. Steve is incredible and I highly recommend him. He is determined and trustworthy.

Special shout out to Mike from RingFinders, who happened to also be searching on the beach that night and after letting him in on what we were looking for he too offered to help. So kind!

I received a desperate call from David. He had gone to the beach for the day, and when he decided to go in the water, he buried his keys in the sand so no one could find them. The problem was that when he was ready to leave, he moved his towel, and then forgot where the keys had been buried. He called his father who found me on the Ring Finders site, and told his son to give me a call. I told him I would come right away.

When I arrived David and I found each other, and he took me to the spot where he had been during the day. He showed me where he had been, and I could see where he had been digging in the sand, so that is where I began my search. The keys were not in that area, so I began to expand the search. I was finding a few metal items such as bottle caps and foil, but not the key. I continued working back away from his original spot, and then all of a sudden a real nice signal in the headphones. I scooped, and there were his keys, about 15 feet from where he thought they were. I was glad to have been able to help him out.

I was at the dentist this morning (always a pleasurable occasion:-0). When I got out, I noticed that I had received a call. I called the number back and talked to Walt. He had lost his wedding ring on the beach earlier in the morning. Time is always the enemy of a recovery, and because this had happened today, I told him I would be on my way as soon as I picked up my equipment at home.

When I got to the beach Walt met me and walked me out to the spot of the loss. He told me how he had put his ring in his back pocket, and when removing something from the pocket the ring must have flipped out into the sand. I began my grid, going over the possible area of the loss, and then expanded it out with no luck. Walt and his friends had moved their towels to give me access to more area expanding my search, but no luck. I did a cross grid over the whole area just in case the ring was on edge and turned, but no luck. We talked, and I let Walt know that the ring was not in the searched area. He felt I had searched all of the area he thought the ring would have landed, but I asked him to move the towels back, and I would go over the area they had moved their belongings to although it was way outside of the possible area of the loss. As I completed the first pass, I got a good signal, dug, and had Walt’s ring in my scoop. I held it up to his total surprise, he could not believe it had landed in that spot, so far from where he thought originally, no way. An awesome recovery!
