Young Newly Engaged Couple lose Heirloom 18k Engagement Ring in the waters of Gulliver’s Lake, Hamilton ON 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a phone call from newly engaged Crystal inquiring about the recovery process of her recently lost 62 year old Heirloom 18k white gold with diamonds that belonged to her late Grandmother in the water at Gulliver’s Lake in Millgrove, Hamilton, Ontario! A popular RV camp ground, water activities, swimmers, beach goers and scuba divers with no motorized boating allowed!

Crystal advised her Fiancé Garrett of what we discussed but Garrett wanted desperately to find the ring himself due to his fun play of throwing his Fiancé into the water. He purchased a detector and wrapped it in plastic. They searched for hours with no luck and decided to call me back and book me for Sunday morning!

With permission granted from the Manager Debbie I arrived to meet them onsite 10am Sunday.

Unfortunately, Crystal felt her engagement ring fly off. They had a 10′ by 10′ exact area but us detectorists know how  trajectory and ring weight can play an important role to determine its path!

With a silty bottom and not too bad visibility I decided an underwater circular grid would be best at 6″ to 8″ depth with my scuba gear, 2 fiberglass poles, high viz yellow line and my Minelab excalibur2 with short dive shaft was set!

I set it up with Garrett that we were going to surprised Crystal as I felt strongly this wouldn’t take long in which it was amazing it took 25 seconds after my initial set up!!! A PERSONAL RECORD FOR ME!!

Check out my YouTube video and surprise!!!

Well, we definitely surprised Crystal to say the least…. BEEP……BEEP and Garrett and Crystal’s Father a sign of relief!!

Happy to help this young couple out on retrieving her beloved late Grandmother’s Engagement ring that meant the world to them and the Family!!

Thank you Garrett for his donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in my “PAY-IT-FORWARD CAMPAIGN”!! Using my passion for metal/scuba dive detecting to raise much needed funds to breast cancer Patients! Instead of my receiving a “reward” for finding the clients item, I insist the clients makes a donation to my Charity that I’ve Snowmobiles/Volunteered with TGE last 11 of 20 years bow onto Year #12!! Garrett will receive a tax receipt for his donation!! 🌸💖🌸

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Adam & Lindsay from Kingston, ON we’re visiting Wasaga Beach 3 with Family members! The guys were playing with a bounce ball in the water when Adam felt and saw his wedding band fall off his finger into the water. The three guys all started looking to try to see the ring but had no luck.

Lindsay was checking beach goers to see if anyone had swim googles to loan to assist looking for the ring underwater.

Ann Maria and Kaitlin visiting the beach from Collingwood had suggested calling THE RING FINDERS Alison as they had recently saw a post of another ring recovery & return the previous day!

I had been dealing with a blown serpentine belt on my diesel truck and advised I could attend the location in an hours time to assist.

Arrived and discussed the details of how Adam had lost his wedding ring. Decided to complete a circular grid at first but after 6 passes changed to a back and forth grid. After 45 minutes, I had a beauty of a tone.

I had winked to my Friends Heather & Greg (Greg fixed my truck hours before) to restart the video…then the surprise!!

Check out the video!!

Adam was in disbelief!! I could see that he was giving up….but I never give up!

I wish this lovely young couple the very best for the arrival of their first born child in October!! Also, I I am grateful to have another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my PAY-IT-FORWARD fundraising efforts!! Using my passion for metal detecting for charity!!

LITTLE BOY TOSSES HIS MOTHER’S BFF’s PLATINUM DIAMOND WEDDING BAND INTO THE GRASS in KLEINBURG, ONTARIO

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Kleinburg, Ontario – Received a referral from RingFinder Steve Z for a lost wedding band in the tall grass of a backyard!

I called the client Gabriel during dinner for the details and proceeded to head over before dark!

An hour later I arrived into the beautiful quaint little Village of Kleinburg in Vaughan Township!! Sure brought back memories travelling from Rexdale up Highway 27 to Nobleton many moons ago!!.

Gabriel’s Wife had her Girlfriends over in the afternoon. One of her Girlfriends took her Platinum Diamond Wedding band off and put it down on the table. Camillo, the couples young Son took the wedding band and flung it over his shoulder into the tall grass behind him!! They searched for hours and decided to call upon THE RING FINDERS DOT COM professionals!

I set up my Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector with the extra large 15” coil! 3 minutes later I asked if the wedding band was Platinum instead of 925 silver as originally advised. (I had a sweet low tone but caught a glimpse of the band buried in the grass)

Gabriel’s Wife called her BFF to check what the wedding band was made of… but I then called little Camillo over to help me and gave him my pinpointer!! We then pulled the beautiful wedding band out!! Check out our video!

I think we have a new DETECTING PIRATE in the making!!! On the flip side…instead of receiving a reward, I always ask my Clients to PAY-UT-FORWARD by making an immediate online donation to the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation in which I have snowmobiled/volunteered for the last 11 of 20 years now my 12th year!  Here is a link to my KSBCF fundraising page!

NEWLYWED LOSES TUNGSTEN WEDDING BAND IN ROUGH WATERS OF WASAGA BEACH, ONTARIO 🇨🇦

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Gerard was in Wasaga Beach for his Brother’s bachelor party. All of the guys were throwing a football in the water. Gerard dove in the water to try and catch the football. As soon as He came up from the water He noticed his tungsten wedding ring was missing.

Gerard’s heart sunk with immediate panic setting in. After a few hours of looking, he finally gave up.

Gerard called his wife Angellie, to tell her the bad news. After a few minutes, his  wife came across One of my Facebook pages with my “The Ring Finders” blog stories, “Metal Detecting for Charity” and told him to contact her to see if she could help.

I responded immediately to Gerard’s FB PM. After he gave me the details of his lost wedding ring, I contacted some of the other detectorists that were at the location already to see if they could help. They were busy with another ring search and the water conditions were deteriorating.

I advised Gerard that I would drive up to Wasaga the next morning and because he called immediately, I advised him I was confident I had a great chance to recover it.

I arrived very early Sunday morning. Saw some of the other detectorists out and started a very close/tight grid search shoreline to 100’ out before the first sandbar as per Gerard’s perimeters! Four hours later, I had it!!!

I immediately headed back to my truck and decided to call Gerard with the great news that I recovered his wedding band!! I told Gerard his prayers worked and that I found his wedding ring!!!

He said he felt like I won the lottery! The van load of Bachelor patty goers immediately turned around and met with me a short time later.

As soon as I stepped out of my truck we started recording and I was holding up Gerard’s wedding ring!! He couldn’t help but give me a big hug! LOVE THAT!!!!

I advised Gerard because he was a Newlywed that I was forgoing my charge and asked him to “PAY-IT-FORWARD” with a nice donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’s on-line link with the amount of his choosing! The Foundation will in turn send him a tax receipt!

Gerard thanked me for my hard work, determination, and most of all my kind heart.

Gerard said “Alison is truly an amazing woman and I am forever be grateful to her.” Thank you l!!

I am very honoured to se a very generous donation from Gerard & Angellie was immediately sent in!! It sure made me feel that my efforts were truly gratefully acknowledged!! Thank you so very much Gerard & Angellie!!

I love my passion for this hobby and use it to help others in need!! I have raised over $7,000 in the last 4 years with my metal/scuba dive detecting through The Ring Finders dot Com!!! 98% of the population have never heard of this GLOBAL SERVICE of dedicated detectorists helping others locate lost rings/jewellery/keys/cell phones and many other items!!

14k WHITE GOLD/DIAMOND ENCRUSTED ENGAGEMENT RING LOST AT LARGE SPORTS COMPLEX Ancaster, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a Facebook message from a long time Girlfriend Tracey F’s Daughter Senna that her engagement ring was lost at a large baseball complex in Ancaster, Ontario! OMG she was devastated to say the least!!!

Senna is a Fastball star Pitcher for the Port Perry Angels and was in a tournament that day. She had taken off her engagement ring and had placed it in her jacket pocket. Seena’s Fiancé Matthew had even went out and purchased 2 metal detectors from the local Canadian Tire. They searched for 7-8 hours prior to calling me. Her baseball team, Family, Friends and Fans were also searching between games with brooms and rakes. Senna missed her last because she was so distraught!

I arrived after 7pm. I discussed with Senna, Matthew and Tracey to retrace her steps on the field area, dugout, grass and sheltered areas. I started on the infield down the first base side where she had warmed up pitching. I then moved into the dugout area. This is where Senna had her baseball bag and dropped her jacket down to warm up. I had a very low tone VDI 5 on the Minelab Equinox 800. It was 1″-2″ down. I had told Tracey a key world phrase “can you get me some water” which really meant “I FOUND THE RING”!! Then the surprise video/return…..

Here’s the video on the SURPRISE recovery & return!!

I just LOVE it when the SHRIEK & TEARS of shear disbelief & joy happens on the return!! #priceless

  

I was very grateful to Matthew as he donated one if the junior detectors to my upcoming ‘ Pink Power Ally Kids Treasure Hunter Club’!! He also made a Charity donation to the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”!! #PAYITFORWARD

LOST SENTIMENTAL 925 SILVER RING IN BRAMPTON, ON PARK GRASS

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I received a phone call from Sam from Brampton, Ontario as he lost a very sentimental 925 silver ring recently.

Sam was walking his two dogs in a City of Brampton park. He ran with the dogs when the leashes crossed and came to a stop 40’ away! He realized he had lost his cell phone and his silver ring!

Sam luckily found his cell phone that night but not his ring. Sam then rented a metal detector which sounded like they gave him a locates machine. He then turned to YouTube to find one of my ring recovery videos but also a former member of “The Ring Finders” ‘Mark’ suggested he look up “The Ring Finders” to find a dedicated detectorist close to his location to aid in the search!

I advise Mark my fee and my “Pay-It-Forward” program that when I find his ring he is to in-turn make an on-line charity donation towards the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”

We searched through the long knee deep grass with no success for 1 hour & 40 minutes. After 20 minutes I decided to switch my medium sized coil on the MINELAB Equinox 800 to the small coil! Continued to search and go over the initial search areas! No luck! I then went over the first area search  but expanded towards the path and BOOM!!!! FOUND IT!! Saw the silver and started the video…. check it out!! He’s making a DONATION!!!

https://youtu.be/

I ….NEVER…. like giving up and offered to come back throughout the week once the grass was cut!! But we had FAITH!!

NOTHING BEATS THE SHEAR EXCITEMENT & AMAZEMENT IN THE CLIENTS REACTION!!!

i asked if he had any change or metal in the wallet so the detector could pick up a signal and he did indeed have change from Tim “Timmies” Horton coffee run!!

I popped over Friday morning during my 10 minute coffee break and found his wallet quickly on the other side of the snowbank on the front lawn area!!
