I got a call from Jenny yesterday afternoon as she was distraught that she had not lost one ring, but rather five rings at Carpinteria State Beach! In order to keep them safe while she went swimming, she had carefully placed her five rings in her beach bag while she went for a swim. When she got home she went to get her rings and they were gone. Thankfully she had some photos so she had an idea where she was sitting but after about a half hour of gridding and nothing but trash I asked to take a look at her photos. I took out my phone and we began to compare the photos she had with what i was seeing through my camera and it appeared we were not in the right place. I kind of recalibrated our location and moved to another area of the beach.
After about 5 minutes of searching the new area I got a series of hits on my Equinox 900 and one by one started recovering her rings. All five were in about a two foot area buried about 6 inches in the dry sand. All was now well and good for Jenny.
If you have lost your ring or other piece of jewelry do what Jenny did and contact Ventura County’s #1 ringfinder at 805-290-5009 so we can set up a plan to get your ring or rings back.
I got a call last evening from some nice friends of Karina and Drew who were camping with them at Carpinteria State Beach. The call was that Karina had accidentally lost her three wedding rings in the sand and that they had been digging and sifting the area for 5 hours with no luck. They had even bought a metal detector to use but no matter what they tried it didn’t work, still no rings. Luckily it was thought to google “Ringfinder” and when they did my name came up and I agreed to come right out and recover the rings. I knew I would be able to recover them and I assured Karina that I would.
There was a crowd of family looking on and I began to grid the area they thought the rings would be at. There was nothing there and I suspected that the rings (that had been placed on a chair) had been flung a bit farther so I moved outside the area towards the waterline and then detected and one by one, each ring began to reveal itself and in about 3 minutes we had all the rings back. Needless to say we were all pretty pumped at the outcome.
If you happen to lose your ring don’t wait, call or text me at 805-290-5009 and let’s get it back to you.
I got a text late last night from Ashley who had lost her engagement ring yesterday afternoon when a sneaker wave crashed their beach party and between the wave and the gathering of her stuff and moving it her 3 week old engagement ring was lost somewhere between the low and high tide line a 100 yards long and 20 yards wide! I searched the first logical location but the sand was quiet and I knew her ring wasn’t there. We decided I would follow her as she walked the 100 yards to where they ended up to see if it had been dropped along the way. I left a grid line with my scoop in case I needed to go back and we got to the spot where they went to regroup from the high tide and started to grid around it. About 3 minutes in I finally got a tone and it was clean and we had success in the scoop.
Needless to say we were both as excited as we could be because poor Ashley had been waiting 9 years for this ring and she deserved a better resolution than a lost engagement ring! Ashley did the right thing and got ahold of me as soon as she could and we didn’t have to fight the tides or other detectorists to recover her ring. I’m retired so I’m available at 805-290-5009 to hunt day or night to get you back your ring, bracelet, pendant, keys or even a phone.
