Lost Rings found at Carpinteria State Beach

  • from Oxnard (California, United States)

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.

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
