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.
