I got a call last evening from some nice friends of Karina and Drew who were camping with them at Carpinteria State Beach. The call was that Karina had accidentally lost her three wedding rings in the sand and that they had been digging and sifting the area for 5 hours with no luck. They had even bought a metal detector to use but no matter what they tried it didn’t work, still no rings. Luckily it was thought to google « Ringfinder » and when they did my name came up and I agreed to come right out and recover the rings. I knew I would be able to recover them and I assured Karina that I would.
There was a crowd of family looking on and I began to grid the area they thought the rings would be at. There was nothing there and I suspected that the rings (that had been placed on a chair) had been flung a bit farther so I moved outside the area towards the waterline and then detected and one by one, each ring began to reveal itself and in about 3 minutes we had all the rings back. Needless to say we were all pretty pumped at the outcome.
If you happen to lose your ring don’t wait, call or text me at 805-290-5009 and let’s get it back to you.
I got a call from Emily Saturday afternoon asking if I could help her son-in-law find his platinum wedding ring at the beach. My first question was did he lose it in the dry or wet sand? Her response was neither, he was neck deep in the ocean boogie boarding when it fell off. I did a quick check of the tides and it turned out he lost it at high tide so I knew I had one chance to find it today (Sunday morning) as we had a decent minus tide at 6am. Carpinteria is about 45 minutes from my house so I headed out at 5:15am to see if we could recover this ring. Gideon and Erica had been married less than a year and losing this ring was a blow for sure. Gideon is an ER Dr. in Ventura and finally had one day to rest at the beach after a 36 hour shift and he ended up losing his wedding ring.
I got out there and the tide was right where I needed it to be and I had around 20 minutes of search time before it came back in based on where I had plotted his location from yesterday. I was about 10 minutes in and I got a nice tone on the minelab equinox and two scoops later I had the ring in the scoop. Gideon, Erica and Emily met me at the beach and the return was complete. It was an awesome way to start a Sunday morning and I’m thankful we had the opportunity with the tides. If you happen to lose a piece of jewelry time is not on your side so make sure you call or text me at 805-290-5009 and ask for Dave.
