metal detecting Oxnard Tag | The Ring Finders

Lost Promise Ring found and returned at Oxnard Beach Park

I got a text late Monday evening from Kaitlyn who wanted to see if I could help her and her boyfriend find a promise ring that had been lost in the surf/wet sand at Oxnard Beach. I agreed to go out early Tuesday morning to take advantage of the low tide and based on their recollection of location, find the lost ring. I spent 3 hours gridding the area given to me and didn’t find the ring. I informed Kaitlyn and she agreed that if her boyfriend Flavio could meet me out at the beach we would have a better chance of finding the ring.

I met Flavio early Wednesday morning and we returned to approximately the same area I had searched the day before. Some more sand had moved so it was worth re-gridding the area. After a couple of hours we expanded the area again but still came up empty. I decided to move to the opposite of where it was thought to have been lost and searched the slope area and again nothing. The only place left to hunt was the high tide line and I began to move slowly through the area when I got a decent high tone on my XP Deus 2 and after a couple of shakes of the scoop I had the ring!

Flavio was clear on the other side and hadn’t seen me dig the ring so I gave him a surprise when I presented the ring back to him. Sometimes the item isn’t where you think it should be which is why you need someone willing to work to bring your ring back so like Kaitlyn,  you need to call or text right away at 805-290-5009 so I can immediately begin to work at recovering your jewelry.

Lost Gold pendant and Chain found on Silverstrand Beach in Oxnard

I got a text this afternoon from Dave who had inadvertently lost his daughter’s gold pendant and chain while they were playing at the beach. Ironically she had given the chain and pendant to Dave to hold for safekeeping while she went boogey boarding. Dave put it in his shorts pocket and when they got back to the house noticed it was missing and that he had a hole in his pocket so somewhere between the hide tide section of the beach and about 100 yards of dry sand he had lost the pendant. The beach had become crowded since it had gone missing and pretty much everyone within a 25 yard radius knew it was missing and why I was there so the pressure was on. I hunt Silverstrand a lot and parts of it can be tricky as it tends to get a lot of sand pushed in and pulled down each tidal cycle so I knew I had to work fast if it was in the wet sand. I hit several targets right away but nothing what we wanted and we had decided to move up into the dry sand but something told me to make one more pass in the wet sand so I did and at the bottom of my grid I got the tone I’d been looking for and out popped the pendant and chain intact!

I brought it up to Dave pretending to get ready to hunt the dry and then I showed him and the place around us erupted in cheers and claps as the missing pendant was now back home. Dave did the smart thing and called an expert out to solve his recovery problem and if you have lost a ring, pendant, bracelet or chain don’t hesitate to text or call me at 805-290-5009 and we can make arrangements to getting your items back safe to you. Time is always the enemy so don’t wait call as soon as you can.
