An epic ring call with an amazing recovery in a cobble rock beach at Emerald Cove, Catalina Island, CA. four days after lost in the ocean. Catalina Island, sometimes known as the Island of Romance but this time it was not too romantic when Jacky lost her wedding ring at the island.

Dave Shenbaum’s sisters-in-law Jacky believed that her diamond wedding ring came off as she lifted her two small children into a shore boat. She was standing in knee deep water with a gravel type beach at Emerald Cove. Although she didn’t feel the ring slip off, she knew it was missing after getting into the dingy.

Dave put on his dive mask to search for over an hour to no avail. He knew he was not equipped with the right tools to ring a ring in this environment. This happened Friday and they returned to Redondo Beach the next day 26 miles across the channel. They had resolved that the ring was lost forever.

Dave, Manhattan Beach Fire Captain and lifeguard has used TheRingFinders to help people find valuable items for their owners. He contacted me Sunday at 4:30pm, asking if I’d be willing to go over to the island on his friend’s skiff or another larger boat.

We checked the tides and weather forecast to choose the best time to get to the site. Monday seemed the best but only allowed us a few hours to prepare.

I have never met Dave Shenbaum or Joe Bark retired fireman and I was a little apprehensive about jumping in a boat that I have never seen with strangers to cross the Catalina channel.

We met at the next morning to take the Joe’s ocean skiff to Emerald Cove. It would be the fastest and most maneuverable getting us to shore. Everything went like clock work we were almost like Navy Seals on a mission. I was on a small boat with trained first responders that have been on many rescues and other emergency situations. Can’t ask for better partners than that.

After an hour and fifteen minutes we landed on the gravel beach. Dave and I went ashore where he showed me his landmarks to where the loss occurred. It was low tide so I started at the waterline gridding parallel along the beach. Halfway on the third pass after I had dug two trash targets the next signal was the beautiful white gold diamond wedding ring. We took a few photos at the location then jumped in the boat for the return trip.

Arriving back a Redondo Beach King Harbor four hours round trip, including our search and photo-op.  Steve and Jacky Shenbaum met us at dockside not knowing we had already recovered her wedding ring. Dave held out his hand with a few pebbles from the beach and her ring. She did a quick double take then the tears of joy started to flow her husband Dave Shenbaum could not believe that his brother had set this recovery up and kept it a secret till he could surprise the both of them. This was definitely an epic ring recovery. I could not have done this without the help of Dave Shenbaum and Joe Bart two of Manhattan Beach’s finest.

Blaine’s family is from Utah enjoying a day at Newport Beach. Their vacation took a bad turn when Blaine’s wife lost her wedding ring set in the sand. She had placed her rings in her purse while on the beach.

They were about 20 miles away the beach on their way to eat dinner when his wife discovered the ring set wasn’t in her purse. She assumed that the ring may have been pulled out of her purse when she removed her cellphone. They immediately decided to return to the beach to search for the lost wedding and engagement rings.

While driving back, Blaine’s daughter, Abby got online finding my contact information. I talked to Blaine agreeing to meet him at the location. When I arrived there were 6 or 7 people walking an area looking down. They waved me over to show me the general area. There was a little disagreement as to the location. Six people with six different ideas but I knew we were close enough to find the rings if they were actually lost there.

If you start in the right place it could be a fast recovery. If the grid search is slow and thorough eventually the lost item will eventually show up. ( if it’s there )  This time it took about 20 separate by 30 ft. passes till the white gold diamond wedding ring set was in the scoop. Abby posed for a photo with the prize. Sounds easy but this happened on the towel line. The next day the beach sifting machines would have got it mixed with other beach trash.

We all walked off the beach together and the family still had time to enjoy dinner at a nice restaurant. Also the vacation wasn’t upset by the loss of such an important sentimental keepsake. 

If you ever talk to someone that has lost wedding rings or other heirlooms, you will find that it bothers some people for years. I wish I could return all the rings I have found.

It’s summer, if you lose a ring on the beach or other pubic place..  Please call Now 949-500-2136 *** 

Jessica and her family were enjoying their vacation at Laguna Beach when she lost her wedding ring. She contacted me after finding my phone number on TheRingfinders.com directory.

I was driving home when Jessica called. She told me that she had put her wedding ring set in a handbag while on the beach. The engagement ring was still in the handbag when she returned to her hotel room. The wedding band could have been lost in the sand or anywhere along the walkway to the beach. She would be able to meet me to get me close to the location.

There were a few unknowns but we have to start the process of elimination. After meeting Jessica we walked to the beach where she had an area marked off with beach chairs and towels. Even though she didn’t remember taking things from her bag, it’s always best to start where they spent most of their time. 

It was a short search, as I got a nice gold signal a short time after starting to swing my metal detector. Jessica’s eyes lit up and I saw that awesome smile that happens when I’m able to return a ring. 

It’s nice when people can tell you they felt the ring come off their finger, but that doesn’t happen often. Also, it does help when they can realize the ring is missing before too much time passes. Next, it is necessary to contact a member of TheRingFinders.com as soon as possible.

I love what I do!!    ” I WILL TRY ANYWHERE”

Maylee called asking for help to find a silver Pandora ring, possibly lost in the sand two days before. She and her friends were on the beach most of the day. They did take a long walk on the Venice Boardwalk. After returning to her hotel room 40 miles away from Venice Beach, she realized her ring was missing.

It was already two days since the loss and the only reason she believed the ring might be at the beach was after reviewing photos during the day. The ring didn’t show on the last photos before leaving the beach.

I almost told her that too much time had passed and there were too many other locations that he could have lost it. I looked at the clock and knew the traffic would not be too congested. I agreed to give it a try, even though she could not meet at the location.

Trying to keep a positive attitude,  I made it to the beach parking lot in less than an hour. It had just turned dark outside but that never is a problem. It was only a short walk to the lifeguard tower where she had been that Saturday. 

Started a 30ft. grid line and on the third pass I got a nice high tone on my equinox metal detector. ”YES” a nice silver ring with a black center stone surrounded by cz’s.

Sent a photo to Maylee. We decided it would be easier to mail it to her home in New York. She only had two days left of her vacation before returning to her home.

I learned again that you can’t really tell for sure if the item is there until you swing the coil over the area. Then, it’s still a game if inches.

After thinking about this whole ordeal, you might agree that the service worked out well for Maylee. She called a RingFinder from her hotel room 40 miles away from the beach where she thought she may have lost her ring. An hour and a half later I sent her a photo of her ring. She enjoyed the last two days of her vacation without having to take time and can fare to pick it up. When she retuned home, her ring showed up in the mail. Almost as easy as ordering something using Amazon prime. 

I love doing what I do!!

When Martha called me I could see that she was calling from an international phone number. Martha is from the UK and will be returning the next day. She had just dropped an heirloom gold ring in the sand while watching people working out on the athletic rings near the Santa Monica Pier. This ring was very sentimental to her as it was passed down from her mother. She was devastated.

Some local people told her how to contact me. When I talked to Martha she was concerned how long it would take me to get to the location.
It was late afternoon with Los Angeles traffic I couldn’t give her an accurate arrival time. After hearing how she lost the ring, I did assure her that if she stayed at the location I could find her ring.

I was able to get there without any traffic delays and found parking only a block away. The search was quick, finding her ring right against the wall separating the walkway from the sand. I could only get a decent signal by swinging my coil with the tip of the coil facing the wall.

Martha’s face lit up with a big smile which made my day. She was a little late for a family dinner but she would not be going back to England without her ring. It was a pleasure to meet her and help make her trip to California a good memory.

 

Family Hierloom Ring Lost .. Santa Monica, CA. .. Found 6 hours before Flying to the U.K.

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

I received an email from Annabel just before 11pm the night before she had to return home to the U.K. She didn’t have regular celphone service as she was on vacation.

Hi Stan

I got your details but from the ring finders website and I know it’s a long shot but I really need your help!

I was at the beach today in Santa Monica and lost my nans engagement ring and searched and searched through the sand and couldn’t find it. I think I know the small area where it was probably lost as I took my ring off (with my watch) before going into the ocean and when I came back I could only find the watch in my bag, so it must have slipped out.

Would you be around tomorrow morning to help? The only problem is that I fly back to the uk tomorrow and need to leave at 4 for the airport! If you are able to help at such short notice, how much do you charge?

I know it’s a long shot but thought I would see if you could help.

Thanks

Annabel

I was on the beach at 6am, and began my search before Annabel arrived. We had a mix up about what lifeguard tower she was near when the loss occurred. When we got to the right location the first 30 minutes did not turn up the ring. I asked her which way she walked off the beach. That was the right question and it only took a few minutes to find this very sentimental ring. The ring had come out her beach bag as she walked off the beach. Another nice lady that I had the pleasure to help find such an important piece of family memories. I know how much a person can worry about the loss of this type keepsake. I’m sure her trip home was much happier than it would have been if she didn’t find it.

Custom Rings by James Avery Lost at the Montage Resort .. Laguna Beach, CA .. Found

from Newport Beach (California, United States)
Contact: 1-949-500-2136

Wade sent me an email in the early morning, actually 12:30 am. He had spent several hours searching the sands at the beach in front of the Montage Resort, Laguna Beach, CA.
His niece, Sydney had put her James Avery rings, a gift from her grandparents, in a pocket of her beach chair. She didn’t realize till they returned to their hotel room that the rings were missing.
I talked to Wade, who told me what had happened and that they would be leaving for the airport to fly back to Houston, Texas soon. We were able to meet the family on the beach an hour before they were to leave. Wade’s niece, Sydney was so upset that she could not leave her room. He put 4 items at the corners of what he thought was the location they were the day before.
I started the grid search in the center rotating to the outside. When I got to a tee shirt which marked one of the corners, there were two high tone signals right below the marker.. I knew it had to be the rings. One scoop in the sand proved to be the two unique rings.
The whole family was elated. Uncle Wade was a hero for staying awake the night before searching the Internet for TheRingFinders.com.
Another beautiful day and a happy family returning to Texas after great vacation on one of our most beautiful beaches here in Laguna Beach, CA.
