*** Carol is visiting Laguna Beach, CA. Her daughter and her went to the beach the day before returning to Utah.. She took her white gold diamond engagement ring off while applying sunscreen setting it on her towel. The rest of the story happens every day, she got distracted, forgetting the ring was there. She didn’t realize her ring was missing until she got to her car. 

She returned to the location, spending over an hour of frantically searching for the ring. Someone passing by suggested that she search the internet for my contact information. I got the call taking time to ask a few questions and was able to meet her a half hour later. As we walked down a long set of stairs, she told me she knew it was a long shot but she wanted to make sure we at least tried to search for the ring. I told her if she can get me in the general location, we could find the ring.

As soon as I saw how positive she was about returning to same spot where they had been sitting, I knew this was going to be easy. I set up my metal detector and had the small white gold diamond engagement ring in the scoop a few minutes later. Metal detectors are a good tool for finding rings but the successful recovery has to be credited to Carol getting me to the general area.

She was more than grateful because she had already decided it was going to be impossible to find such a small item in the mass of sand on that beach. Another happy day for Carol and myself

***  Melissa and Jason had been hitting a volley ball around while on the dry sand at Surfruder Beach, Malibu, CA. Melissa felt her gold class ring fly off her finger, disappearing into the sand. After a hour or more of searching the area they gave up searching. A person on the beach told them about the ring finders directory of metal detector specialists. 

Melissa called me asking for help. I was available to meet them later that afternoon. There were many people still on the small beach. Actually it looked like we would have to wait till people left the beach. That is not a new problem, it’s just a matter of out waiting the beachgoers. The sun will set and the afternoon winds will chase them off the beach. 

There were a few open areas of dry sand that allowed me to start eliminating the some spots that the ring could be hiding. I very rarely ask people to move, I don’t feel like bothering people that are enjoying a restful day at the beach. Once in a while people will volunteer to move their towels which is nice. Most the time I try not to tell them I’m looking for a valuable item. Just an important key ( it’s just a little white lie ). Sometimes if you tell them your looking for a valuable item, it causes a searching frenzy. Everybody wants to help and it gets crazy.

Almost finished detecting the few 10’x10’ open spots with no success, the magic tone of a gold ring was heard in my headphones. One scoop in the sand revealed Melissa’s awesome gold class ring. Melissa and Jason were near me and didn’t realize that the ring was in the scoop until I held the scoop up for her to see her ring. A very intense moment with smiles all around. It was another win for The RingFinders website directory.

*** Adam lost his platinum wedding ring in the sand when he brushed sand off his leg. It happened while he was on a family outing at Aliso Beach a Orange County California beach park .

He contacted me the next morning after finding me on The Ring Finders website. The good news was he felt it come off. The bad news is this is a small beach and there is a chance it could have been found. Aliso Beach is normally a 20 minute drive for me. I was ready to drive to the location but Adam wanted to be there when I did the search. He could me later that afternoon. Even though it made me nervous to wait 8 more hours, I knew the search had a better chance of success if Adam was able to get me in the general location.

Adam took advantage of the moment by bringing his wife and child to the beach so the could have another sunset outing at the beach. We met where he could show me exactly where the incident happened. It was a small sand area next to breakwater rocks. Trying to stay positive, I tried not to think the ring did not go into the rocks. I took a few seconds to explain to Adam how my metal detector works. After that, We were lucky that the ring was found shortly after starting the grid search. I was a surprised that I didn’t get a strong signal. Possibly the ring was on edge or near an other type metal. What is most important, is Adam has his wedding ring back where it belongs and he and his family enjoyed another sunset on the beach. I did have to use a photo of me because Adam is camera shy.

*** I was detecting around fire pits at Bolsa Chica State Beach, CA., when I found a working cellphone. It must have been dropped in the sand the night before. The phone was locked but it had enough charge in it to receive a call. My hope was that the owner would try calling it from another phone.

The last time I found an iPhone there was a message on the locked screen that said, this phone has been lost and it gave a phone number to contact the owner. That was convenient and easy way to return a iPhone.

I was about to take the phone into the AT&T store for help finding the owner. It had been three days since I found the phone. Just before entering the store, looked at the phone clicking on Emergency Contacts. “Boom” .. three phone numbers that I used to let contacts of Taylor know I have his phone.

Within 10 minutes Taylor called me. We set up a time and place to meet. Taylor was so excited and happy to have his phone returned. I know how he felt because I had also lost my iPhone 11 a couple days before and a couple called me right away. I didn’t have it locked, which could have been a disaster. Security plus expensive to replace $$.

Two Rings Lost in a City Park Lake in Irvine, CA. … Recovered and Returned

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)


Don’t wait, call as soon as possible… Stan the Metal Detector Man …  949-500-2136  .. “I WILL TRY ANYWHERE “

*** Roz and Nema were sitting on a bench next to a local city lake in Irvine, CA.. She took two rings off her finger placing them on her lap while applying hand sanitizer. Forgetting that her rings were on her lap, she stood up and both rings fell into the lake.

A neighbor saw they needed help, volunteering to use his pool cleaning scoop to hopefully find the rings. The water depth varied from 3ft. to 4ft. with zero visibility. As he was attempting to find the rings, another neighbor told the distressed couple about TheRingFinders.com. She actually called me with her phone, handing it off to Roz. 

Roz told me about the loss while I was just leaving another search. I had my water detector with me, so I was able to drive directly to their location. We only had about an hour of daylight left. Right away I got into the water and after pulling out many trash targets, the promise ring was found. They were amazed and happy to have this ring back. 

It was dark so I decided to return the next day, even though they said it wasn’t necessary. They were very happy to have the promise ring recovered.

As a ring finder, I couldn’t give up so easy. Especially when we know the rings were lost directly in that location. It was less than ten miles from were I live. 

I returned the next morning with my wetsuit and a 6” coil set up on my detector. My plan was to dig everything,  as we weren’t sure what type metal the ring is. Roz thought it might be gold plated. After another hour in the water there was a high tone signal that gave me a #30 ID reading. It could be a quarter coin, aluminum or something silver. I scooped at the signal then looked into the scoop. “Bingo” gold colored ring with a big yellow stone. (Roz’s Ring). When I checked the ID reading out of ether water, it gave me a number #15. It was in the undercut of the embankment 4 ft. deep probably being masked by a piece of aluminum (?). I only regret that I didn’t find out what metal was masking the signal. Every search is a chance to gain more experience and I believe I’ve been on more than a thousand searches.

The rings are both back where they belong. This story of how the rings were lost and recovered will always be part of the Roz and Nema’s memories. I love being able to help people.

Lost 22k Gold Chain with Pendant on Crowded Beach … Newport Beach, CA. .. Found after a Day in the Sand

*** Bob called me after he spent the morning looking for his 22k gold chain with a gold / diamond pendant. He is a local resident of Newport Beach and had spent the afternoon on the beach. He wrapped his gold necklace in his shirt while he took a quick swim in the ocean. While laying in bed that night he realized that his necklace was missing. It had to be somewhere on the beach.

His attempt to see if it had been turned into the Newport Beach lifeguard lost and found was not successful. After he contacted me, we met on the beach where he was able give me a good location to search. I happy to see the beach sifting machine had not worked the towel line that day. 

I began to grid search the towel line before people began to sit in the search zone. I started to worry that the necklace could have been picked up by a passerby, as the chain could have been particularly exposed. Then there is always a possibility that a recreational detectorist could have found it. Many of these people would return an item like this if they had a way to contact the owner. That is not always easy to do. 

Before beginning the search Bob told me that he had worked in India and this was a gift he bought himself to remember his time there. The pendant is called Ganesha which is well known in the culture of India. He told me that of all his jewelry, he’d rather lose his Rolex than this sentimental keepsake.

He did mention that if we couldn’t find it, he was ready to accept that the loss was meant to be. I don’t run into that attitude very often. Well, a half hour later I got a very low tone with a one digits TDI number on my Equinox 800 detector. I wasn’t really expecting anything decent when I scooped the signal, but there in the bottom of my scoop was a beautiful 22k chai and pendant. In the sunshine the color is awesome and it feels so smooth, almost soft.

Bob was sitting patiently in his beach chair 30 or 40 ft. He noticed me stop then he could see the some of the chain trying to slip out of the holes in my scoop. He came running over to me in a calm but excited manner. He was so happy to have his prize possession back.  He did say again he knows it’s material item and he was willing to accept its loss if it was meant to be. I was grateful to be a part of helping Bob find his necklace and pendant.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band in Backyard .. Whittier, CA. .. Recovered after Searching Two Weeks

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

 

If you lost a ring or other valuable in your yard call Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-2136

*** Sergio spent two weeks searching his backyard lawn for his platinum wedding band. It was lost while he was cleaning his barbecue equipment on the lawn. 

I met Sergio at his home in Whittier, CA. the next morning after he called me. After walking into the back yard, he showed me where he had taken his ring off, setting it on a work table. Later his son came out to help his dad clean up. Sergio asked him to  spray off the barbecue grates, etc. which were on the same table as his ring.

Later that night Sergio realized that he didn’t have his ring on. Remembering that it was on the work table, he knew it must be in lawn. Using a flashlight in the dark the ring was not found that night. A couple days later he tried using a metal detector which was also unsuccessful. His last attempt was to pull all the grass from a 20 ft. x 20ft. area. After all that, he called me.

I grid searched the whole lawn several times with out getting a decent signal. Then used my detector to scan 4 bags of clumps of grass that had been pulled from the lawn. 

We had another talk about what other items may have been in the work area. As it could be possible the ring may have fallen into, then moved somewhere on the cement patio. Also the possibility the ring could have may have landed on the cement, rolling under or into another item on the patio. 

As a last resort we began a visual search. Boom! the ring was sitting in plain site on a shelf of one of three barbecues. It was 40ft. away from the location were Sergio had believed the loss occurred. The ring had been sitting there for two weeks, long enough to gather a ring of dust on the shelf where it had laid waiting to be found.

Sergio said he was surprised where the ring was found and couldn’t understand how it ended up in that spot. Nothing surprises me anymore about where these rings are found.

I dropped a ring in my kitchen, heard it hit the floor. Two weeks later I found it in my slippers which I had moved to the bedroom. I’m supposed to be a ring finder, two weeks?

**** Conner and Brianna had been a Newport Beach when he reached for her hand and accidentally pulled off her diamond wedding ring set. The rings dropped into the dry sand. After searching by hand they could not even locate one of the rings.

Conner’s mother got online locating me by a referral after calling several places trying to get help with a metal detector.

Many people are still learning about TheRingFinders.com. I am a member of the international directory which has more than 450 independent detectorists in many cities worldwide.

Brianna and Conner are newlyweds and have only been married for three weeks. This was truly frustrating and it seemed impossible that both rings had disappeared so easily. 

I showed up on the beach shortly after the call. When I met the couple they had the area secured. I always feel confident that we can find the lost article if the people do not leave the location. Sometimes it’s more difficult to get back to the spot where the loss occurred than it is to find the ring with the metal detector.

The rings showed up about 2 feet apart about 4” in the sand. It was a quick recovery because they didn’t waste time trying to buy or rent a metal detector to find the rings. Trying to learn how to use a metal detector to find a valuable sentimental keepsake is not the way to go. Call an experienced metal detector specialist from TheRingFinders.com  ..

*** Adriana had lost both her diamond gold wedding ring set. After three days of searching many different possible areas she had been, she called me for help. 

We discussed the many places where she had been the day of the loss. The family had driven out of town to visit friends, she had made a trip to a local grocery store, she also walked across the lawn to a community mail box (150 yards.) and lastly she had done many chores inside the house. A lot of nooks and crannies for rings to hide. Adrianna and her husband, Jon desperately searched for days without success. She told me they had given up hope but wanted me to check the grass before completely letting go.

After hearing all the potential places the loss occurred, I could only suggest that with my equipment I could definitely eliminate the grassy area that she walked to pick up the mail and play area where she was with her children. There could be places to search after I get to the location.

We couldn’t meet up till the next day. Jon was there to meet me and Adriana would show up to give me person to person description of what she had done the day of the loss.

Jon showed me the path across the grass to mail box. This would keep me busy until Adriana got home. I did the whole grass area even though she probably walked a narrow pathway. After 15 minutes I got a surface signal and looking down I could see the diamond wedding ring. About 18” over there was the diamond engagement ring. I left them there.

When I walked up to the door Adriana stepped out to meet me. I asked her to show me where she had walked. As she was showing me, I said, I think you just stepped on something. When she looked down she saw the first ring. She was shocked and told me they had gone over that area a couple times, in the daylight and at night with a flashlight.

She let Jon know we had the rings and he met us outside to make a video recording of the recovery to share with his friends.

Another great recovery because it almost seemed impossible considering all the places she had been when she lost the rings.   I run out of words to explain how happy they were..
