Lost Engagement ring found in Carpinteria

I got a call on Thursday afternoon from some folks who really needed my help in finding their engagement ring. For confidentiality purposes I cannot go into much more detail than to say that it was lost in the water at high tide. I checked the tide tables and determined the tide at when they lost it and set an appointment for 5:30am so we could utilize one of the last good minus tides of the year. 

While there seemed to be a good understanding of the general area it was lost it was tough to determine as a ton of sand had moved in with the previous high tide and rocks that were fully visible 12 hours before were now barely sticking out over the sand. I began the search working parallel to the ocean and after about 10 minutes I got a solid but deep tone. It took 3 scoops to get it out of the sand but when it did pretty much all I could say was OMG! I was told it was a diamond ring we were looking for but this was a diamond ring and then some and then some more! Thankfully we had all the right things in our favor, time and tide being the most important. The key thing that made it a successful recovery is that the call was made right away so if you lose a ring, pendant, keys or chain call or text me right away at 805-290-5009 so we can get on finding your item as quickly as possible.

Lost wedding ring found Carpinteria State Beach

  • from Oxnard (California, United States)
I got call from Heather this afternoon that she had lost her wedding ring in the sand at Carpinteria State beach. She had been tending to her 5 month old daughter and somehow her ring had slipped off and landed somewhere she thought behind her away from the wet sand. I immediately headed out to Carpinteria and due to the late afternoon was able to get free parking close to the beach on Linden Ave. She had an area marked off where she thought it would be and I began to work that area but other than a deep bottle cap and a penny there was nothing. I expanded the area and still we failed to find the ring so I asked her to describe for me again how and why she thought it had gone in the direction she said it had. As I was listening to her I began to look around the area in the front of her and out of the corner of my eye I saw the top of a ring embedded in the wet sand. Sure enough, I reached down and picked it up and it was Heather’s ring. Sometimes the best metal detector is the one between your ears. If you ever lose a ring call or text me at 805-290-5009 immediately
