*** Laura was on her vacation with her family visiting Newport Beach. She called me the day after closing her white gold Cartier Love Bracelet. Her call came about noon which concerned me as this beach gets a daily sifting by the beach cleaning crew. Objects as large as a bangle type bracelet can be picked up by the sifting machine or moved a distances from the loss zone.

Like many people, Laura had no idea of how a metal detector works, so I took a few minutes to demonstrate. We discussed where she had been the day she realized her precious bracelet went missing. I told her I would be removing all metal signals as I did the grid search and this is a tedious process that may take a couple hours. It is not something that she has to stand by to help. She could go about her day on the beach and I would let her know when and if I found the bracelet.

About an hour into the rather large search area, I got the perfect signal. I was almost positive that this was the treasure I had been searching for. One scoop with my sand scoop prove this was Laura’s White Gold Cartier Love Bracelet. I walked over to where she had set up her beach chair at the waters edge to present her with the bracelet. Always a very emotional moment and definitely hard to express the reaction we get when we can return an item that they believed was lost forever.. 

I provide a mobile metal detecting service for all of Orange County and Los Angeles County. Basically any of the Southern California cities.. Call or text now for service or information on how this works… Stan the Metal Detector Man .. 949-500-2136 … I WILL TRY ANYWHERE

Small Gold Pendant Found in Sand at Newport Beach, CA. Returned to a Grateful Mother

*** Anna was on the beach with her husband and two small children. When the picked up her young son, she inadvertently snagged his necklace braking it. She salvaged the gold chain but the very small gold pendant disappeared into the sand.

The loss occurred a short distance from where I live  but I was an hour away on another search on the other side of town. They said they would be on the beach for a couple more hours, so we set up to meet later in the afternoon. 

Traffic was cooperating and parking was easy to get me there before they had to leave. I was glad to have my high frequency metal detector with me which is a must for finding micro small jewelry. Anna had marked the spot with a stick. She also showed me an identical pendant which she also wears. 

A short time later I got a very short but solid signal on my metal detector. It took about five or six attempts with my sand scoop to retrieve the pendant as it kept falling through the larger holes in the scoop. Anna and her husband were totally surprised and expressed their joy and gratitude for my help.

Wedding Rings Lost in the Sand .. Malibu, CA. .. Recovered Next Day By Ringfinder

… I received a early morning text asking help to find three rings lost the day before. Lisa told me that the rings were set on the towel while putting on sunscreen. She didn’t realize them missing until they were driving home. 

The next morning Lisa and her husband went back to the beach with a metal detector they purchased at a sporting goods store. Knowing they didn’t have any experience with a metal detector. They called me to ask for help. I asked them to claim the area so nobody set up in the search site.

I met them on the beach after they spent an hour with the metal detector none of the rings showed up. We were lucky that the beach cleaning machines had not worked the beach that morning.

I set up my machine knowing we had three targets which made the odds of finding the lost rings better. I didn’t start in the best area, but I did get a single signal as I narrowed down the search location. Everyone was starting to lose nope. Then I got a single signal with no other signals near it. One dig with the sand scoop prove to be a yellow gold Cartier Love ring. I called Lisa over to claim the ring as I swung my detector coil for another signal. No signal. 

When I looked back in my scoop, there were two white gold rings hiding in the silver colored stainless steel scoop. Amazing and another learning experience for me. They must have been laying together or maybe the thicker yellow gold ring dominated the signal. The most important fact was these irreplaceable sentimental rings were saved and back where they belong.

It’s always a gamble to try a beach search after days have past on our Southern California beaches especially on the dry sand towel areas. I’ve learned that we can’t give up. Part of the search process is to confirm that the lost item is not there. I try to give people that ask for my help that information so they understand how it works. I use the best metal detectors and have experience using them. If the item isn’t there, I can’t find it, but in most cases I can verify it’s not there. Which helps people to eliminate an area. Finding lost items is a process of elimination..

Texas A&M Aggie Gold Ring Lost on a Southern California Beach .. Found and Returned

… JONES called me after losing his Texas A&M Gold Ring in the sand at a Southern California beach.. He said he didn’t feel it come off.  It was going to be dark by the time he could meet me on the beach. JONES said he believed the ring came off when he rinsed his hands off in the cold water. 

We met on the beach as the tide starting to come up. After looking at all the possibilities to where the ring could be lost. I elected to search the towel line because that’s where he spent most of his time on the beach. Also the tide had already advanced high enough that tomorrow’s low tide would be best time to go for the ring. He hadn’t spend much time at the water’s edge and did not feel the ring come off his finger.

From my experience the ring had a better possibility of being in the area he spent most the day. Tomorrow the city beach cleaning machines will be sifting the sands and the usually hit the towel line thoroughly.

After about 20 minutes the big heavy gold Texas A&M Aggie ring was recovered. Jones was a happy guy. These rings are very coveted by graduates of Texas A&M. I was also happy that I guessed the ring was in the dry sand and I hadn’t wasted time trying to find it in the crashing surf.

I can search cars, homes and water where metal detectors can’t be used. I you need advice or assistance looking for a lost or misplaced valuable please feel free to call or text.

Big Diamond Ring … Recovered from Sand at Southern California Beach by member of TheRingFinders

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)













.. Britney believed that her very sentimental and very expensive 7 ct. diamond ring was lost at a Southern California beach. The loss happened three days before contacting me. She didn’t feel the ring fall off her finger, only realizing the missing ring while driving home.  Her insurance company recommended that she contact a member of TheRingFinders. When I replied to her text, she told me that she just a few minutes to talk before leaving to pick up her daughter from school.

It was late in the afternoon and I thought I might have to set up this search for the next morning. I did have time to find out Britney would not be able to meet me at the location. In my opinion, I believed I should make the hour drive attempting a preliminary search with the sketchy directions she gave me.  Part of the area is a play area that gets a lot of attention from hobby detectorists. The other possible location was a large section of main beach which is sometimes known as “no man’s land”, the area of sand between parking lot and the towel line.

I made the drive and was able to talk with Britney one more time after I arrived. She couldn’t add much to the directions given to me on our first phone call. I made sure to thoroughly grid search the play area first. Then proceeded to grid search half a football field zone that she had set up their beach blanket. 

There was 30-35mph winds blowing sand that evening as the sun beat an to set. It was looking like I might have to return the next morning. This area might be larger that Britney described, she said it was about 100 -150ft out. ( some people are good about judging distance?) I started in the middle going north. Then I came back to go south. The second 150 ft pass I got a great signal just where I was doing the turn around. Boom !! Big 7 ct. diamond in a white gold setting. Successfull recovery just before thinking this was going to be a two day search.. This was an awesome search because I had very few details to work with and three days had passed. Sometimes you just have to try.

Britney and her husband met me near where I live to pick up their very sentimental ring. Ending several days of frustration and sleepless nights upset with herself and believing the ring was lost forever.

Diamond Wedding Ring Lost in Surf at SoCal Beach … Found and Returned to Grateful Owner

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

















If you lost your ring in the sand call  “Stan the Metal Detector Man” available now … 949-500-2136

***  Maria found my contact information on the internet a day after her white gold and diamond wedding ring slipped off her finger into the surf. She had taken her young son for his first time at the ocean. While holding him in shin deep water her ring slowly came off her finger. She couldn’t let go of her son to retrieve the ring as the next wave washed the ring out of sight.

The loss occurred at a high tide but this SoCal beach is one place that can pull a ring down into a deep trough of cobble stones. I made arrangements to meet Maria just a little after noon which is the best low tide.

When I arrived Maria her mother and sisters were all at the site. She had good landmarks that helped make this a successful search. I began my grid search approximately 20 feet below where she dropped the ring. Working up the slope to where she said the loss happened. I got the perfect white gold signal exactly where she said it dropped. The ring had not moved from that spot all night with two high tides. 

The whole family was excited as were several of the beach goers that witnessed the recovery. This never gets old for me, it’s great to see the joy and feel the gratitude from the  people I’m able to help.
