**** Aly and Matthew were on the beach near the pier in San Clemente, CA. to watch the sunset. Aly lost Tifanny interlocking circle ring while waving her hands to chase seagulls that attack their snacks. They spent quite awhile searching the dry sand and it was beginning to get dark.

Mat found my contact information while searching the internet for help. I met the couple on the beach with my metal detector and a very high powered search light. We had two positives going for us. Aly had felt the rings come off her finger and marked the location with a stick. Secondly they were able to stay at the location of the loss till I arrived.

There was a 10 ft. slope on the dry sand where they had placed the marker. Even though I don’t depend on VDI numbers, I knew any high number or high tone could be Aly’s silver Tiffany double rings. Within the first couple minutes I got a high tone which I mistakenly told them, here’s your ring. Wrong! It was only a dime. Then, closer to the marker I got a another high tone which just turned out to be a quarter.

The search area had been grid searched in one direction, so I started a cross grid in the other direction, expanding it another 20 feet. I wasn’t quite sure of the size of the ring. A small silver ring on edge could have been missed, but in this situation that wasn’t the case. I found the ring 15 feet further away from where she was standing when the ring set came off her finger. It must have come off at the end of her arm movement.

Aly was very happy to have this special ring back, as it was a gift from her grandmother several years ago. Mat was also the hero for finding a RingFinder using his smartphone.

**** Travis and his girlfriend were at Newport Beach, CA. when his ring slipped off his finger into the dry sand. He bent down to retrieve it. His girlfriend, unaware what had happened saw an opportunity to tackle him while he was in a awkward position. Even though it was a small area they could not find his ring that evening.

Travis’s mother called me after finding my contact information online. She told me that Travis was driving back to the location from 40 miles away. She asked if I could meet him at the beach with my metal detector. She also added that this ring was very sentimental to Travis as it had belonged to his father that had past away recently.

When I met Travis and his girlfriend, we walked out to the beach where he had very good landmarks to get us close to the location of the loss. He had even paced off how many steps from the nearby trash receptacle. 

My heart sank as I we got close to the spot. I could see the dreaded path of the beach sifting machine which only does two passes of the towel line this time of the year. 

I began my search grid over the top of the beach cleaning machine’s path, hoping that I could find evidence that it left some metal trash. Sometimes they just set the machine to get surface trash. Not this time, I could not even find a pull tab. It was hard not to tell Travis that we were possibly too late to find his ring. The city’s maintenance crew boasts that this Beach King can sift items as small as a dime.

This time we were lucky, I expanded the grid search area and Boom!! just five feet outside the Beach King’s path there was Travis’s ring. It was meant to be. His very sentimental ring was not going to be lost forever. This was not the first time that I could have given up easily. It feels so good to know, if I stay positive and persistent we can have a successful search. I love doing this and seeing the happy results of returning a precious keepsake live Travis’s ring.
