**** Faye and her husband Riley were at Huntington City Beach, Orange County, CA. with their two young sons. She had lost her wedding ring near their beach blanket after removing it to apply sun screen.. The area of the loss should have been in a 20’x20’ area.

They had another person with a metal detector searched the location with no success. I was called, asking if I was close enough to help. Fortunately I was just a mile away and was at the location within 15 minutes. 

When I arrived Riley described the ring as a small white gold woman’s wedding ring that had small diamonds 3/4 around the band. These can be elusive especially if laying on edge in the sand. Then they did recall two incidents where she went outside the original search site.

They had been searching for several hour by now. As I completed 5 passes of my grid, Riley got a call from his wife who was waiting in the car a the parking lot. She told Riley that this was ”MisSion Impossible ” she was ready to give up and go home.

At the very same moment I dug the signal discovering her wedding ring in my sand scoop. He was elated, then without calling his wife, we walked over to the parking lot. He approached the car not saying a word. He held up the ring for Faye to see. Boom! her eyes lit up then the tears of joy started to flow. We still didn’t under stand why the first detector missed the ring. The ring was recovered and back where it belongs.The important thing was the ring was found. . A very happy couple and it was a pleasure to be a available to help them..

**** I was called to help Ella find her engagement ring that she thought may have been lost at Laguna Beach, CA.

Ella and her fiancé had been staying at a hotel on the beachfront. The weather had been a bit chilly, keeping people off the beach. Ella regularly works out with a hula hoop, so she thought it would be nice to work out on the beach with her hula hoop. She was sure her engagement ring was on before walking to the beach. After returning to the room she discovered her heirloom engagement ring was missing. The situation involved walking to and from the beach plus an hour and a half of walking two or three blocks at waterline of the beach.

I met her shortly after she called me. We were fortunate that the tide was receding. It was going to be raining so I came prepared with rain gear. We were not quite sure that the ring had been lost at the beach area, but that was where she did the most physical activity. I told Ella that if the ring was there, I could find it. If it didn’t show up we can eliminate that area, so she can check the other locations she had been.

Ella couldn’t stay, which was a good thing. I knew that this was going to be a long search. After three and a half hours, there was just a small area remaining. I was already trying to think of what I would text Ella. Then I got a strong signal that turned out to be Ella’s ring. I was surprised and happy that I could send a successful recovery text with a photo of the ring. 

She replied right away saying she had given up hope and had figured I didn’t stay to search in the rain. We met two days later when she had time to pick up the ring. This was my first hula hoop ring loss and recovery. What’s next?

… John and his wife were enjoying their last day of their vacation at Santa Monica Beach, CA. He stood up near their blanket in the dry sand brushing sand off his leg, when his gold wedding ring went flying into the sand.

He was able to locate me online at TheRingFinders website. I made arrangements to meet him at the location  Our main concern was that he had to catch a flight back to Denver, Colorado soon. He might only have 15 minutes to show me the area of the loss. I suggested that he mark the spot with some markers and continue to grab into the sand. There was always a chance that traffic could delay my arrival.

I parked very close to our meeting place. They were still at the location. It was one of those quick recoveries because John called me shortly after the accidental loss and he stayed at the location. All searches are not this easy but we at TheRingFinders know how to conduct a proper search using the most efficient metal detecting equipment. 

John and his wife were able to catch their flight home with his wedding ring on his finger.

Metal Detector Specialist Recovers Stud Earring in Grass .. City of Orange, CA

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

“I FIND JEWELRY”  call Stan the Metal Detector Man if you need  help ..  949-500-2136

… Kristen had taken her afternoon walk with her children and their dog. They were at a neighborhood park when she went to adjust her small stud style earring. The dog got a little excited pulling on her hand that held the earring and it went flying into the grass. 

Several of her neighbors attempted to find the stud earring. They even had a metal detector which couldn’t find her favorite piece of jewelry.

The next day, one of Kristen’s friends suggested that she go online to call a ring finder. That was how she found me. I met her a couple hours after our phone conversation.

Kristen had the matching earring which helped me set up my metal detector. We walked a couple blocks to the park where she showed me a small area in the grass, 10’ x 20’. She couldn’t stay which wasn’t necessary because I had all the information I needed.

I decided to use my high frequency settings on my metal detector. The search site was fairly free of metal trash signals which helped to make it a quick recovery. Also,  the earring was .925 silver making it an easier target to identify. 

After getting the signal I was looking for, I took a look into the grass and the only thing visible was the thin post. It seems to be normal for these stud earrings to fall with the heavier end downward. 

It was a good feeling to recover this because these small earrings are always a challenge. Kristen was very happy to get this back. It had special sentimental meaning to her.

Exactly why I love being able to do these recoveries.

**** On our Southern California beaches it’s popular to spend the evenings sitting on the sand at the fire pits. This call was from Patrick’s friend, who had found me on TheRingFinder website. They had spent a couple hours enjoying sitting around a fire at Newport Beach,CA. As they started to leave, Patrick picked up his towel and brushed sand off with his hand. He felt his ring slip off his finger into the sand.

After a half hour searching the small area, they were frustrated with their unsuccessful attempts to find the ring. It was getting cold and they had to be home soon. I was able to meet them on the beach which is less than three miles from my home.

It only took a few minutes after setting up my detector to find the ring. Patrick and his friend were happy to have the ring recovered and able to get on their way home. I love these quick recoveries. From the time I left the house till I got home was less than an hour. That includes taking photos for the book of smiles. All ring calls are not this easy. This year I had one ring search in the Mojave desert 135 miles away and it was 104 degrees. Then I had another 100 mile drive with a 3 hour hike to a hot springs for a ring lost in the water. Both of these searches were unsuccessful. We don’t get all of them. I still can’t wait till the next call out. They are always a new adventure and so rewarding to make another smile.

****Erick and his family live near San Clemente. They regularly come the this same small beach and everybody knows each other. The week before his friend lost a platinum out in the ocean while surfing.

Erick normally doesn’t take his ring off but this day he decided he didn’t want to lose it in the water. He took his platinum wedding ring off wrapping it in a towel that he place on a large rock. When he returned from the water his ring was not in the towel. He was baffled because he had not moved the towel before checking for his ring.

He was able to call me for help finding his ring with my metal detector. We met in the parking lot. Then he told me he believed it may have been stolen. He wanted to make sure it hadn’t been dropped in the sand. We walked to the large boulder were he put his belongings.

I was afraid that the ring might have fallen into many inaccessible spaces between the breakwater size rocks. This time we were lucky. The ring was under the sand right next the place were the towel had been. We figured that someone may have moved the towel while Erick was surfing. Sometimes we never know what caused the loss. The most important thing is we found and returned the sentimental wedding ring. Erick was elated and very happy that it wasn’t lost forever.

Bella had been at Santa Monica Beach with her friends. She went into the water not realizing that she was still wearing her Cartier watch. It was actually an hierloom that her mother had passed down to Bella. 

She was out about waist deep water with small waves when she felt the watch slip off her wrist. The tide was beginning to come up. On the Southern California beaches we get high tides that range between 4.5ft to 6.5ft. high. The tides raise approximately one foot an hour. 

When I received the call I knew the water level could be too high to do a proper search. My priority was to get to the location before Bella left the beach. This may take two trips to do a proper search. I only discuss the general idea if the loss occurred in the dry sand or water and if they can stay at the location till I arrive. For beach losses it’s more important to get on the road and meet the people before they have to leave. 

I was at the Santa Monica beach location within an hour of Bella’s call for help. The tide was rising and I was hoping that she had been wrong about how deep she was when the watch slipped off her wrist. It’s really hard to judge how deep you are in the surf with 3 or 4ft. waves.

I went directly into the surf with my waterproof metal detector. It wasn’t necessary to go into the crashing waves as I was pretty sure I would have a better chance to find the watch the next day at a lower tide.

Within fifteen minutes I got my first good signal and BOOM!! One very sentimental gold Cartier watch was in my scoop.

Bella, her friends and all the people on the beach were excited, amazed and joyful that the watch was saved and not lost forever.

*** When Jenn called me for help to find a lost rose gold ring in the sand at Bolsa Chica State Beach I assumed it was going to be an easy search. Usually, if the people haven’t left the beach it can be a quick recovery. Most important is to get to the location before they leave.

I met Jenn and her husband Eric shortly after talking to Jenn on the phone. After discussing the loss of Eric’s rose gold ring, I knew this was going to take some time. They had been at the beach for more than 4 hours and Eric had not felt the ring come off his finger. To top it off he had been in the ocean. Most the time was spent on the dry sand near their blanket and umbrella. Then he had helped build a sand castle half way between the upper towel line and the water. 

I did a quick swing over the blanket area then went into the water to waist deep water while the tide was low. Next I jumped over to the area around the sand castle project. No Find! After the concentrating on the most likely spots i began a tight grid search to and from the damp sand to the incoming water line.

Bingo! The ring was found after more than an hour of thorough searching in the wet sand. It was a large search area but I only had to do less than I expected to grid search. Nobody that was there would have guessed that the ring would be where it was found.

Christina found me after a google search. She asked me if I could check her floor heater vent for a ring she lost a year ago. She had the heater company look with a camera several months ago. This was an area I couldn’t use a metal detector and I’m sure the heater people had a good camera for inspection of heat ducts. Basically I told her I couldn’t do that type search after professional heater service had already looked.

Then Kristina told me that there was another ring lost in the shrubbery of her back yard. Her husband’s platinum wedding band had come off his finger last week while waving his arms. He felt the ring come off but it had to land in the landscaping shrubs because they never heard it hit the deck or cement sidewalk.

I met Kristina the next morning and she showed me both locations. I did another camera inspection of the heater vent without success. Also crawled under the bathroom floor to feel what vent ducts looked like. I advised her that the duct could be easy disconnect for a better search. I will not do that, just don’t need to liable for any damages heater system.

Next I started to use my Deus metal detector in the planter on the side of a backyard slope. I did get a faint signal but the 5”x 7” coil head could not get into the thick overgrowth. I pulled out my Garrett Pinpointer taped it to a 5 ft. pole. Probing into the thick growth I got a strong signal in the same area that the Deus had sounded off. A quick look into the bushes allowed me see a round platinum ring in the dried leaves at the base of plants. Boom! Successful recovery for Kristina and her husband. Than you for calling TheRingFinders and trusting me to search for your valuable and sentimental keepsake.

*** Anthony called me after spending several hours trying to find his platinum wedding ring in the sand at Dockweiler Beach , Los Angeles county, CA.  

We didn’t talk much about the loss on the phone as one minute can equal one mile down the road. All I needed to hear was he felt it come off his finger while sitting on his towel. The other thing I needed to know was that he could wait at the location till I arrived,

I arrived at Dockwieler Beach after driving in fast moving traffic. Parking was easy as people were beginning to leave the beach. Anthony answered his phone right away, directing me to site. Within a few minutes I had his platinum wedding ring in my scoop. 

Many people just give up and walk away from their sentimental keepsake, not knowing that it can be found with the right tool (quality metal detector) and a experienced person to do an efficient search.

Anthony and his wife were very grateful and appreciative that they found me on TheRingFinders website. I had to hear again that they never knew a service like this existed.
