Todd was bodysurfing while on a vacation. As he was coming out of the water he shook his hand and his gold wedding ring went directly into water. It was high tide and he was in about a foot of water. 

Todd gave up hope of finding his ring feeling it was lost forever. He and his wife had taken a walk. He was upset about loosing the ring. As they past a local jewelry store his wife suggested they look for a replacement. They decided to buy a new ring but they didn’t have a size 11. After telling the story about losing the ring in the surf, the person that was helping them gave Todd my contact information.

I met Todd at 7pm as the tide was receding. He put me in the general area. I could not locate the ring and it was not worth risking searching in the rough surf. I decided to wait for the lower tide. Returning three hours later with a Pulse Induction Metal Detector that has the ability to get targets deeper in the soft sand.

After an hour of grid searching the ring had not showed. My next plan was to cross grid swinging very slow. I got the faintest of sound in my earphones. It was more like a break in the threshold. After digging a deep hole in the damp sand, Todd’s gold ring showed up in my sand scoop. It’s difficult to understand how deep this ring was after only 6 hours. We have many miles of beach in Southern California with all types of sand conditions. I have recovered many rings only a few inches deep after several days. Sand conditions can be a problem but there is always a better chance to find a ring that was lost at a higher tide. Finding a ring in a lake or bay can be easier if there isn’t too much metal trash and if it was lost in water less than shoulder deep. 

Todd and his wife were flying home to Idaho the next morning. I was able to meet them to return the ring just before they left for the airport. It’s always nice to see the happiness and smiles when returning a ring that is so sentimental to someone that has worn it daily for more than 20 years.

Raul called asking for my help to find his wife’s platinum/ diamond and blue sapphire ring lost in the dry sand in Laguna Beach, CA. His wife Marisa had been sitting on the board walk with her feet touching the sand. She removed her wedding ring and it slipped from her grip falling out of site.

They spent a lot of time searching in the small area of sand. They panicked when the ring eluded them. They feared that the ring may have dropped between the wooden planks of the boardwalk. If the ring went under the the boardwalk it would not be accessible without major removal of sand.

I set up my metal detector and told them to cross their  fingers hoping that it was not under the boardwalk. It was a quick recovery, actually under Marisa’s foot in the sand. They had done everything right. Marisa had stayed in the location of the loss and Raul had got on line finding my contact information. Total time from when Raul called was less than 45 minutes including 7 miles drive, finding a parking spot on Sunday and a short two block walk.

One small note about this type search is the puzzled look you get when you find a small item so easily right in front of where they had been searching. “ Using The Right Tool For The Right Job “ .. Also knowing how to operate the metal detector. 

It’s always a pleasure to help reunite such sentimental keepsakes with the owner. It’s also hard to put in words the joy of seeing the happiness that people express at the moment the item is found.

When Cindy and her family went to Ponce Beach in San Clemente on a Sunday afternoon, Cindy put her rose gold wedding ring set in the pocket of her shorts for safekeeping. After returning home that afternoon she discovered the rings were not in her shorts pocket.

Her and the family returned to the beach later that evening attempting to find the rings in the sand. There were several places that the rings could have fallen out of the pocket but the most likely was at the beach where she had taken off her shorts to go swimming.

Monday afternoon Cindy contacted me, asking for help. She said that either her husband or herself could meet me the next morning to show me the location. After discussing the location, I felt I could go by myself with the screen shot photo Cindy had marked and sent to my phone. I know how difficult it is for a mother with two young children to leave the house and why should her husband lose part of a days work. Time is important especially in public places.

Ponce Beach is about 20 miles drive for me and I was there an hour after talking to Cindy. Walking to the marked location she had given me, I could see finger drag marks in the sand. It only took a short time to find the two beautiful rings. We were lucky that this beach doesn’t have daily beach sifting machines. Also, that the rings were hiding in sand and not in plain site in the parking lot.  I was able to call Cindy and I drove closer to where they live to return the rings that same evening.

Lisa and her friends had taken their you kids to Balboa Island for a few hours at the beach. There are several small beaches on the inter bay where the water is free of waves and it is not windy.

The children were getting tired after a few hours, so they prepared to return home. That’s when Lisa realized her platinum and diamond wedding ring was missing from her finger. It had to be in the dry sand because she had not been in the water. Everyone searched for the ring with no success. 

It was getting frustrating with the kids getting tired and hungry. Lisa called her husband, Ryan. He was at work where he couldn’t leave so he went online where he found my contact information. I was in my car with  my detectors when he called. It was a coincidence that I was less than a mile from where Lisa was waiting for help to find her precious wedding ring.

We met and it was a matter of a few minutes till my metal detector was able to locate her ring. I have a lot of respect for mothers of young children. It was a pleasure to help Lisa find her ring and get on her way to get the kids home for their lunch and afternoon nap.

Lisa was a little camera shy so I got to pose for photo with the ring for the book of smiles.
