Lost diamond rings in ocean surf waves found by metal detector at Camp Del Mar beach Camp Pendleton

San Diego Metal detector service for lost jewelry recovery Call Curtis Cox @ 760 889 2751 The Ring finders

Recently this summer of 2023 I received a call of urgent help from a lady who had 2 gold diamond rings disappear while boogie boarding at Camp Del Mar beach on Camp Pendleton marine base.

These type of calls are not what many people have worded to me; “Hopeless or a shot in the dark.” I know some mysteries of how the ocean works along this littoral cell. Especially when it’s only been a day or 2 in the ocean along this particularly flat wet beach. Gold has a density 19.3 times greater than water meaning it won’t move,,,Only sink!  I assured her there is a good chance I could find it!

So we arranged the very next morning during an early 7:00am minus Low tide then was shown an approximate area she was riding the waves 4’+ deep. She had to head back home nearby to take care of her newborn meanwhile I scanned & scanned & scanned some more for over an hour until I was nearly too far gridding from where it could of been,,,Like many times in my past,,,As soon as I think about calling quits…I end up finding it. That’s when a familiar itchy scratchy low tone signal beeped on my Minelab Equinox metal detector. After 2 Scoops the small round band came popping out!  I checked around the hole and no signals though where’s the 2nd ring??,,,I always fill my holes as usual and one important thing to do is check your holes before filling them as a detectorist’s Murphy law cause The main mothers diamond ring was just one more scoop down!  I text her pictures of the rings saying they are safe now and even delivered them for her. She was so relieved as you can see in the book of smiles:)

Saturday July 7th I received a call from John Hughes a fellow member of Theringfinders asking if I could take a call to Mission beach and help a guy find his lost ring,Again! John already had found and returned David’s ring a year prior at another beach but wasn’t able to go due to a painful back operation.

I called David and after a few questions of how it was lost I was on my way to help.
I showed up just before the sunset & met David who had placed his Gold ring in a bag for safekeeping while he went into the ocean for a swim.He showed me a 200’ area in the dry sand of where it may of dropped into. I proceeded with a grid search pattern for about 10 min and after digging just a couple penny’s I was able to recover this precious ring!
it was back on David’s hand,hopefully for the final time! Thank you for the generous reward.

Carlsbad Metal Detector Guy finds lost ring

  • from Carlsbad (California, United States)



The Ring Finders Metal Detector Service helped find a Lost wedding ring in the surf.
OPEN NOW; Call 760-889-2751

July 7th was a sweltering hot summer day in San Diego when I received a call from Gail about her husbands Lost wedding band which was dropped waist deep in Carlsbad just 30 min before. So I checked the tide books and it was not a good scenario because the tide was coming up fast forecloseing this search until low tide at midnight. I told Gail I was willing to give it a try knowing that it might be found “Now or Never” so I was on my way while she text me their GPS coordinates from google maps. I figured by the time I got there it would be chest to shoulder deep at this point but it was 95* outside and I was in the mood for a wet water search.

As I arrived to the scene of the lost ring the scenario looked even tougher than expected. The surf was pumping with lapping shore break at 2-3 second intervals.
I soon then met the nice couple from Arizona,Gail & J.C. After a few questions and concerns we both had,they pointed in the ocean where he felt the ring slip off waist deep into the breakers.Though It was hot plus worth the shot so I geared up and walked out nearly shoulder deep immediately getting tumbled for about a couple minutes.Suddenly I got a special signal on my Metal Detector and tried to dig it up before the next wave bashed into me,Over and over for what felt like 5 minutes I kept scooping at it getting pushed away from this target multiple times with white wash nearly over head high.I then took one last scoop blindly at this signal again,Swung my Metal Detector around the area and didn’t hear it anymore…OH NO!  Looking into my sand scoop I see a bunch of Cobble rocks but no ring? Then I shook the rocks around when what appeared was the  edge of a metallic circle?

I safely walked back out of the water to the couple,Friends,Family and beach goers who were watching,,while I was trying to look discouraged or maybe giving up the search? I showed them the sand scoop with beach rocks in it,I could only hold the bummed look for a couple seconds,so I pulled out J.C’s Wedding Ring out under the rocks like a magic trick!

Instantly the Hugs and cheering came pouring in from all over with pulsating energy electrifying the beach.The excitement from these calls are most rewarding and never get old.

Thank you Gail & J.C for the kind reward.

Lost Gold ring Camp pendelton

  • from Carlsbad (California, United States)


Lost Ring Found and Returned at Camp Del mar beach camp pendelton.  May 27th 2017

I received a call from John Hughes who is a good friend from Theringfinders. He had just got a call from a marine who had lost his ring on the beach and asked me if I could drive immediately to the base and find it for him. John ironically had another lost ring call in Carlsbad while I was headed to Camp pendelton to meet Kythan at the front gate. “Team Work” Like the NATO alliance!

Upon arriving at the scene of the lost gold ring he showed me the dry sand area where he moved a chair and noticed his ring disappear into the soft fluffy sand.  I turned on my Machine and began scanning in a 10’x12′ area.  In less than 5 minutes and 8 bottle caps I had found Kythans Wedding ring buried next to the chair.

They were very happy to have the ring back and asked me how much do they owe me for my service? I said it’s a FREE Charge to anyone in the service😀 Can’t beat that right!

He did cover me for the little fuel I spent but No matter,I always volunteer my metal detecting time to any USMC or Navy for sacrificing there time for our Freedom and this Great Country they serve and protect.🇺🇸

Call or text me at 760 889 2751 for a Fast response and recovery. I’m available 24/7
