Lost Wedding Ring found in Bell Canyon CA.

  • from Ventura (California, United States)

I got an email from my website ( from a young lady named Jourdan who had lost her wedding ring. She knew the area it was in because it ended up over the balcony of her home overlooking a steep canyon in Bell Canyon, a private community outside of Los Angeles. How it found itself over the railing and into the canyon was less important than getting ti back so we scheduled a time for me to come out. The area where it was thought to be in was a steep drop off of open dirt with pockets of dense brush and tumbleweeds and rocky outcroppings. It required me to detect mostly from my knees as standing up left me unbalanced and prone to falling.

I spent 4 hours during my first visit at her home removing hundreds of nails, bottle caps and various metal debris but did not find the ring. I agreed to come back out as I had time and today was that day. We started by throwing a couple of junk rings over the balcony to simulate the wedding ring and again I hit the ground from my knees and detected both with my equinox and my pinpointer. For most of two hours I got nothing but junk signals and I was close to giving up but I decided to move down the hill a bit even though logic said it didn’t get thrown that far. While standing over a large cattail bush I got a faint “10” on my equinox as I moved the coil through the bush. I had to walk below the bush in order to get on my knees and used my pinpointer to start seeing if I could locate the signal. I got a beep and then spied this:

 There it was! 6 hours of searching on a steep hillside canyon and I had found the ring! Needless to say I was overjoyed and I took a moment to thank God for allowing me to find it. I called up to the house and let Jourdan know that her wedding ring was coming back. We prayed over the ring and asked God to continue to bless Jourdan and her family. Everyone was happy and the story of the ring continues. If you lost your ring don’t hesitate to call me at 805-290-5009 so we can get it back.

Lost Engagement Ring found at East Beach Santa Barbara

  • from Ventura (California, United States)

I got a call from Ian on Tuesday morning asking if I could help he and his fiance Cielo locate her engagement ring that was lost Sunday evening. It was accidentally lost in the tide as Ian had been holding it for Cielo while she was swimming and it came off while he had handed her the towel. It immediately buried itself in the wet sand and as each wave moved over it got buried a little bit more. The conditions were great for a Tuesday afternoon search and I felt pretty confident that I could recover it unless someone else had beaten me to it.

I got there and met up with both Ian and Cielo and I started the search and began to grid out the area. I wasn’t having much luck going east so I went back to where I started and moved west and on my second pass I got a signal and two scoops later we had the ring back! It was an awesome recovery and it was so cool to be a part of it. If you have lost a piece of jewelry time is not on your side and the sooner you call or text me at 805-290-5009 the sooner it is we can plan it’s recovery.

Lost Wedding Ring Found at Ventura Beach

I got a call from Rigo this morning regarding his wife’s wedding ring. Rigo is a firefighter for Cal Fire and he was thankfully taking a break from fighting fires in the state and took his family on vacation to Ventura for some cooler weather and a little beach time. Unfortunately this great time was spoiled by an accidental dropping of his wife’s wedding ring out of her pocket where she had kept it for safe keeping. She had it in her pocket along with her phone and decided to take some pics of the kids and when she took it out the ring came out with the phone. The problem was she discovered the ring was missing after they had left the beach. I met Rigo at the location and he gave me an idea of where he thought they were and started to grid the area. A couple of passes later I got a nice solid tone on my equinox and had the ring in the scoop! Needless to say Rigo was super excited to get the ring back for his wife and also because they were all packed up in the car waiting for me to find it because they had to be back home that afternoon. They key thing is RIGO CALLED ME AS SOON AS HE COULD because time is the enemy of recovering your ring. If you have lost your ring, key’s, pendant or necklace call or text me(805-290-5009) as soon as you can so I can beat the tide or another would be detectorist. I hunt all areas of Ventura County and willtravel greater distances if necessary. Visit my website at 

Lost Engagement Ring Found Port Hueneme Pier

Imagine having a great afternoon with your fiance hanging out on the pier at Port Hueneme and feeding the birds. Then one toss does the unthinkable and your family heirloom engagement ring flies off along with the bread. It landed on the top of the pier but it didn’t stay there and went into the wet sand below. Thankfully I was able to connect with Haelei and I got out at 5am so I could work the area under the pier at low tide. The last few high tides have completely covered this area and this was the only time I could work the area. After I cleaned out the area of all the metal trash ( please don’t throw your bottle caps into the sand) I got a nice clean tone next to a pillar and scooped out the ring. This was a great recovery as there were many circumstances working against us but God’s timing got us back the ring. Remember if you have lost a piece of jewelry time is of the essence and you need to contact me at 805-290-5009 and let’s get it back. 

Lost wedding ring found at Rincon Beach Ventura

I got a call recently from Arthur who had lost his platinum Tiffany’s wedding ring at Rincon Beach in North Ventura. He was in Hawaii at the time and explained that he had been at an outing with a group of friends at the beach and somehow his ring had come off when he was playing with his friends dog. Fortunately I was 30 minutes away but unfortunately he was unsure of exactly where it might have come off. Thankfully his friends had taken some photos and he was able to give me a starting spot.

I’ve found several rings for customers at Rincon Beach park but in addition to the rings I have found thousands of bottle caps because folks seem to like to drink here and then forget to take their trash home with them and finding the ring meant I was going to find a lot of bottle caps and I wasn’t let down as I had pocketed about 30 when i got a sweet low tone about 15 yards from where we started and in the scoop was his ring. A call and text later and we conformed it was Arthur’s and I told him I would keep it safe until he returned from Hawaii and we met up today and it was back on his finger and his story continued. While time is often of the essence sometimes we do get lucky and find things weeks after they were lost but don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 and we can get your jewelry back. 

Lost Wedding Ring in Ojai CA found!

I got a call yesterday from Elizabeth who was getting a little gardening in while dodging the rain showers when she realized her wedding ring was missing. It was getting dark and while she franticly searched she was unable to locate it and found me. We scheduled a time for me to come out this morning and find the ring. She had narrowed down the area to about 400 sq ft and while this was good for me the issue was most of the area was covered with various knee high succulents with the majority of them having very sharp points protruding out. I checked the area without the plants and did not find the ring so I grabbed my pinpointer, got on my hands and knees and began an inch by inch search of the area. Without discrimination I was pulling up nails, wire and a penny or two as I worked my way into the space. I heard Elizabeth shout that she didn’t think there were any black widows in there but at this point I was committed to finding the ring so even though I had no gloves(left in the car) I kept going. About a minute later I got a nice buzz on my MI6 and pulled away the aloe leaves and there it was, the elusive wedding ring. If you have lost a ring or other piece of jewelry don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 so I can begin the process of returning it to you. Visit me at for more information as well.

Lost wedding ring in Simi Valley Found!

I got an email last night (Saturday) from Nancy who was distraught that she had lost her wedding ring while out in her orange orchard in Simi Valley. She had been cleaning up under trees and removing leaves and debris when she felt like something or someone was telling her to stop and look at her hand when she realized her wedding ring was gone. She reluctantly told her husband that she had lost it and after a few hours of thinking what to do they got the idea that they needed someone with a metal detector to help them. She located me on the Neighborhood app as she asked online and two folks recommended she contact me(word is getting around!) and she did and we made an appointment for today after church. Nancy directed me to an area and after covering it we had come up empty and so we began to retrace her steps. In addition to the orchard she had bagged up 3 bags of debris and I went through twom of the bags finding nothing. I was finding nothing in the orchard so I settled on the last bag of debris and after sifting it I was able to locate her ring with my propointer. Sometimes it’s not always the detector who finds the ring but the detectorist and this time I didn’t need my expensive equipment, just my propointer and bingo the ring was back. If you have lost a ring in sand, water or somewhere in the yard call or text Ventura County’s ringfinder at 805-290-5009 so we can get your jewelry back to you.

Lost Ring in Westlake Village Found!

  • from Ventura (California, United States)

I got a call from Mary this morning as she had accidentally lost her ring last week. She was out on her deck enjoying the creek view below and got to playing with her ring. As Murphy’s law states if something could go wrong it will and her ring slipped off her finger hit the deck and then disappeared. Evidently it had fallen through the slats in the wood deck and fallen below into a 6 inch cushion of oak leaves. Mary had tried to find it herself but couldn’t so she located me and I got out there immediately.

I took her broom with me to check for rattlesnakes as the underside of this deck is the perfect spot for one of those to hide and after I cleared the area I proceeded to get on my hands and knees to do a search with my handheld pinpointer. About 10 minutes in I got a solid tone in the leaves and I uncovered the ring. It was a sentimental ring for her as it was the only possession she had left that survived a fire at her other home last year where everything was destroyed. To some people it’s just a ring but to others these rings have a deeper meaning so I was ecstatic to find it and give it back. If you lose something like a ring, a pendant or other jewelry don’t hesitate to call or text me at 805-290-5009 and we can set up a time to get it back.
