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.

White Gold and Diamond Pendant Lost in Sand .. Malibu, CA. .. Found

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

Marie had been surfing at the beach near Malibu Lagoon State Park. She had left her white gold diamond pendant on the beach with her friend. After surfing, she came back to the blanket where her friend was sitting to retrieve the pendant. As she was putting the necklace on, it slipped from her hand and the pendant dropped into the sand.

After a couple hours of searching with no success they got on their smart phones, locating me on TheRingFinders.com. Malibu lagoon is a State Park about two miles from Malibu Pier. It’s a beautiful beach. It took me about an hour till I could meet Marie at the parking lot. Then it was about a quarter mile walk to the location on the beach.

They had staked out the area well. It looked like it would be an easy search, but it took a bit longer than I thought. The pendant had many small diamonds and not much white gold. It came in with a sound similar to a small piece of tin foil. (14k White gold is 58% gold and the other 42% is different metals?). I have run into this same type situation with small white gold women’s bands that have many diamonds. They aren’t impossible to find but it’s nice to know that they don’t always give you a solid signal.
We had a lot of people on the beach, so everybody celebrated when the pendant was found. It was a pleasure to meet Marie and her friends and to retrieve her diamond pendant.
