Wanda Golemiec's Bio
I have been metal detecting for over a year now, hunting beaches and parks mostly for lost rings and coins. It is wonderful to see a smiling face as someone is re-united with lost items. It mean something to them, that no one else will ever know the true value of.

Lost gold wedding ring in the snow covered parking lot, found and returned. Bedford, Nova Scotia (2020)
January 2020 Kevin gave me a call to ask if I could find his gold wedding ring. The ring had fallen from his finger after shaking snow from his hand in the parking lot. We had a good chance of finding it except when we got there I was worried it might have fallen down […]
It was a chilly day in November 2019, Kevin and I took a drive to beautiful Prince Edward Island to look for a set of wedding rings. They were lost when tossing a ball to the dog in the evening just before dark. We thought it would be an easy 10 min search, but after […]

I could not have asked for anyone better than Wanda (2018)
"A million Thank you’s!
On July 10th I was visiting a beach in Prince Edward Island with my girlfriend when I felt my ring begin to loosen on my finger. In mere seconds, it went from my finger right to the bottom of the ocean floor. To anyone who has had a valuable lost under similar circumstances, it was the worst feeling in the world – I have never felt my heart sink so quickly.
The water at the beach is very light under foot and it was as if the sand opened up and swallowed it whole. My girlfriend was quick to jump into action and we had 5-10 people out scouring the water for any sign of my lost ring but to no avail. We returned later that night with rakes and snorkels but optimism began to give way with every passing minute and the deteriorating conditions. I left on Wednesday to drive back to my family home in Nova Scotia with little hope of retrieval.
People had been mentioning the idea of using a metal detector so on Wednesday night I decided to at very least cover my bases and see what was out there. The first thing that came up on google was TheRingFinders website and upon entering in my geographical location only one listed member came up – Wanda Jewers. She was listed in Amherst – only an hour and a half from the PEI beach – so I sent her an email later that night.
To make a long story shorter, I could not have asked for anyone better than Wanda and her boyfriend Kevin to aid me in my search! It was truly as if they were heaven sent. I received a quick response from Wanda and on just two days’ notice, they were happy to make the drive to PEI with their three metal detectors in tow to look for my ring.
On Saturday, July 14th, exactly 4 days after losing my ring in the ocean, I received the greatest phone call in the world saying my ring had been found! This was my university graduation ring, something I had just earned 7 months prior, and something that held a tremendous amount of sentimental value.
Thank you to TheRingFinders website for running such a tremendous service (reading other people’s success stories kept me hoping and praying), and thank you to Wanda & Kevin for being the amazing people that you both are. It was truly refreshing dealing with such caring and good-natured people – beyond getting my ring back, I come away with a tremendous appreciation for the selflessness you have shown me!
Warmest Regards & Happy Hunting,
All the best,
