After church I got a phone call from a nice young lady who was having a terrible weekend. While camping at Carpinteria State Beach for the Avocado festival she had somehow lost the ring her mom had given her. Ironically her mom had given her this ring to help combat some of the bad luck she had been having lately. To add insult to injury the people camping next to her had backed into her Honda Civic on their way out crushing her left rear quarter panel! So we had our work cut out for ourselves when we got there. Since it’s a beach camping spot there were nails, bottle caps and about .70 cents in the sand. We had been hunting for it for about 20 minutes when I got a mid tone 57 on my new XP Deus in amongst the iceplant and sand so I dug it up and BINGO! WE GOT GOLD IN THE SCOOP!
Here’s the aftermath
Amrit and all her family were pumped and we were too as it’s always exciting when you can help someone. In the event you have lost a ring call Ventura County Metal detecting Services at 805-290-5009 as soon as you can because time is not on your side when it comes to finding your precious jewelry.
Brandon had just recently bought himself a really nice, shiny cobalt ring and was still getting used to wearing it. He and his girl friend were out driving around and as his custom was, he would hang his hand out of the car window. Normally that is not much of a problem but on this night he was in the passengers seat and he was wearing his new ring on his right hand. As they were driving along he had his hand sticking out of the window and he sort of liked the feel of his new ring. It was so smooth and had that heavy feel of a quality ring and before he knew it the ring came off of his finger and dropped into the darkness. His girl friend had the presence of mind to immediately pull off the road. Even though it was dark Brandon could faintly see about where they were when the ring came off of his finger. So they decided to stop and try looking for his lost ring. The long grass and the darkness made their search seem futile, so they figured they would come back and try again in the morning.
That evening they found theringfinders.com website and decided to give me a call the next day. I was able to meet Brandon and his girlfriend at 8:30 the next morning and they explained what happened. The ring had to be there and we just needed to find it. Thankfully the mowers had just finished mowing the whole grassy area where we would be looking and I set out swinging my trusty Whites DFX. As Brandon and his friend anxiously watched me check every signal, Brandon decided to help out and started looking ahead on his own and after a few minutes, Brandon hollers, “I found it!” So another happy ending and the beginning of another great day!
Have you lost something special? Maybe I can help! Call ASAP!
