I received a call from a young man who told me that his sister lost a gold emerald and ruby pendant, possibly in their backyard. I set up a time to go meet and look for it when I received a call from a young lady who lost a ring in a public area, which is a high priority search. I recontacted with the young man and asked if he was OK that I come later on in the evening, he was fine with that.

When I arrived at his home he went on to tell me that the pendant was actually his wife’s pendant that she lent it to her sister-in-law to wear on her wedding day. While they were celebrating in the backyard the pendant broke loose of the chain but with all the confetti on the ground, it made it almost impossible for them to find it. They went out at night with flashlights hoping they could see the glitter of the emeralds & rubies.

The young man show me where his sister spent most of the time in the backyard and I knew it would just be a matter of minutes before I would find this beautiful pendant if it indeed was lost there. Ten minutes later I found it, because he did not want to be on my video I had to take a picture of me holding it with my smile. This is just to prove that I found what I was looking for so we can record it for a Book of Smiles.

Lost Gold Ring, White Rock Beach…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463

 

I got a call about a lost ring at Cresent Beach, it turns out it was close to the area that I searched for a lost silver moonstone ring, 3 weeks earlier. It’s not my favorite area to search due to huge rocks and a long hike into the area.  After discussing the search and looking at the tide chart we set a date for 4 days later to do the search. The story about the ring was the young man had lost it in waist-deep water, they were smart to make reference markers, one was a huge rock he was by, and the other was the trail they walked down. This makes a huge difference in looking for something as small as a ring. The young lady told me the story about the ring and how important it was to find it, it was a gift from her late grandfather who was 94 years old when he passed. It was his wedding band and now handed down to continue a new love story!

We decided to walk the railroad tracks because of the trails were closed, I definitely didn’t bring the right shoes, I wore my water boots soft soul and the walk was approximately 45 minutes to the location. Because of all the rocks around the tracks, my feet were extremely sore! We arrive at the location and just as we got off the tracks a train came whipping by, I couldn’t believe how fast it came around the corner, good thing we were off the tracks.

The young lady showed me the big rock where her husband lost the ring and within minutes I found the ring! I get as happy as the person who lost it when I find what I’m looking for! I love the smiles I find and the stories that are attached to the rings…I called this recovery…The Circle of Love.

Lost Diamond Engagement Ring, Crescent Beach, BC.

Today was a busy day! I started out with an early morning beach hunt in Vancouver, for a lost gold wedding band. (Found it after 45 minutes) Then I received a call to look for a lost gold pendant in a back yard in Surrey, I was just about to head out to look for the pendent when a young lady called for help to find her lost diamond engagement ring at Crescent Beach in South Surrey. I told her I had a search I was on my way to do, but I would call and ask if I could come later as searches that are in public areas are high priority.

I arrive at Crescent Beach and met the young lady, she showed me what she was doing and where she believed the ring was lost. She was sitting on a park bench, brushing the hair off of her dog, when she felt her ring go flying into the bushes. She searched but had no luck as her ring was rose gold and blended very nicely with the golden leaves. The young lady told me that she had lost her ring 4 times, the ring always found its way back to her…The pressure is on!!

After looking at the search area I could tell I would be crawling into and among the prickle bushes with my handheld pinpointer as there was no way to swing a metal detector in the bushes…After an hour and a bit, I thought that I could use the young lady’s help. I asked if she could find a big stick so to hold the bushes back as I used my pinpointer, this was a good idea as I was able to get into a spot that hid her beautiful diamond ring, way in the back of the bushes! I love the smiles and reactions & relief when I find what I’m looking for!

Lost Ring New Brighton Park Vancouver, BC… Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463

 

I received an email in regards to a ring that may have been lost at New Brighton Park in Vancouver. The young lady sent me a picture of the area and a picture of the ring that was lost. I asked her to call me to discuss the search and she did, I immediately went to the location where the ring had been lost the day before to search the dry sand and also check the low tide where he did take a couple of dunks in the ocean. The dry sand was hammered with fire pits and lots of metal, tin can lids, nails… After doing my grid search in the dry I moved to the low tide and started searching the rocky area of the beach.

After about 45 minutes I received a good signal close to the waterline and to my surprise I found his beautiful gold ring! The young couple were not there to show me the area, I took a nice picture of the ring and sent it to them via text message. Within seconds they had replied that’s the ring!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They sent me their address and I dropped off the ring and met the young couple, they were so grateful and so happy to have that ring back! After talking for a little bit she went on to tell me that this was the second time they had used my service, a week before they had asked me to search a park where her husband believed he had lost his ring. I searched for 3 1/2 hours but no ring, I told them to put up some lost posters in the area and not to give up the search and to check their house. 45 minutes later I got a call that the ring was found in the house. This happens more than you know, the most important thing is the ring was found, the sad thing was it was lost again a week later!

Lost Gold Wedding Band China Creek Park, Vancouver…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463

I received a call this morning from a young man who told me that he lost his gold wedding band at China Creek Park in Vancouver. He went on to tell me he was about 80% sure it was lost in the park, I asked him a few questions and explain to him that this would be a closure search, meaning that if the ring was there I would find it, and because there was a 20% chance it wouldn’t be there it could show up somewhere else…Car, house, store…

He also told me that he lost the wedding band four days ago and that he came back with his dad and they both raked the area hoping the ring would show up. This is the second search in a row that I’ve heard that the people have been raking the grass looking for their ring, it’s not a bad idea, it might pop it up, but you have to go over it.

When I got to the park (Murphy’s Law again) they were already halfway through cutting the grass, I saw a young man walking towards the lawnmower 4×4 and he started talking to the Parks Board gentleman who was cutting the grass. When I got closer and met Devon (Great Guy!), he told me they were going to hold off on cutting the grass where the ring was lost, as they hadn’t made it to that area yet.

Devon showed me the area where he believed he had lost his ring, I asked him to make a square in the grass by dragging his foot as the grass is a little damp and left marks so I can see where he thought the ring was lost. I began my search and after 10 minutes I found his beautiful wedding band that was hiding inches under the grass.

I surprise Devon with the ring and got to see his great smile and how happy it made him, he was married for less than a year and told me how hard that was knowing that he lost it. It was an honor to find your wedding band, Devon!

Lost Ring Aldergrove Regional Park…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463

I received an email from a young lady and this is what it said…

Hello Chris,
My name is Erin and I am hoping you can help me find my wedding ring that I lost yesterday afternoon, somewhere in a small section of Aldergrove Regional Park. I noticed fairly quickly that I lost it, so I spent most of my time there looking for it instead of enjoying the park. Are you available to help me look for it with your metal detector? I would be very grateful if you could! Please let me know.

Thank you,
Erin
I replied back that I would be very happy to help and asked her to call me which she did pretty soon after, it’s very important to get there as quickly as possible in order to have a chance to find it before someone else does. I met Erin at 7 pm, she was a very nice young lady, she showed me what she was doing and where she believed the ring was lost, it didn’t take long before I found her smile. It really helps when people can put you in the ballpark, sort of speak, and she did that. This was a first for me to find what they call a ”ring jacket” it’s two rings soldered and separated so that the engagement ring can sit the middle. Aaron also told me her husband said to her don’t worry I will buy you another one, what a great guy, I think I saved him a few dollars by finding this one.

Lost and Found Rings, Third Beach, Stanley Park…Found

Murphy’s Law, who is this Murphy? I’m in the ferry lineup to go see my grandson very early in the morning on Saturday when I get a phone call from a young lady who needs my help finding her lost rings that she lost at the beach the day before. Unfortunately, there is no way of turning back to help her so I told her that as soon as I get back Sunday evening I would go straight to the beach to search for her rings.

I know three days is a long time for people not to find the rings as there’s a lot of new detectorist’s out there now, that being said, it is a game of inches and I know the approximate area of the rings, so my chances are most likely better.

The young lady, Yoshi, told me that she couldn’t meet up that evening because she had to work, she sent me pictures and told me the exact location where she was sitting. I was totally fine with that as I know the beach pretty well.

When I arrived at the park I could not use their paid parking as it was closed, because of COVID-19. I drove further down the road and did find a spot and had to walk about 15 minutes to the beach. I figured it was a good thing because less people would’ve hunted that beach because of the inconvenience of parking.

I got to the beach just before dark went to the location she had sent pictures of and started my grade within minutes I found her two beautiful rings that were just inches in the sand, and lost for three days. I was so excited they were still there and more excited to send Yoshi a picture of her rings. We set up a time to meet the next morning.

Lost Ring Kits Beach…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  778-838-3463

This afternoon I received a call from a young lady who’s husband lost his ring in shallow water while paddleboarding at kits beach. She told me her husband was still in the water with others searching for the ring. I told her to tell him to relax and that I’d be there in 45 minutes,  I assured her I would find the ring if it was there.

The most important thing I told her was to mark the location where he belived it came off his finger. So many times people panic and forget to make mental notes of the approximate location the ring came off which makes it very difficult as we are looking for something very small in the ocean.

When I arrived and met Sam we talked a little bit and he showed me where the ring came off his finger. I grab my gear and headed into the water and after 15 minutes I tightened up my grid search and ask more questions, there’s a lot of iron pieces, pull tabs, and bottle caps in this area. I knew I would find his ring and I was listening for a very loud short signal in about 25 minutes I got that signal and pulled out Sam’s beautiful white gold wedding band. Sam was spot on with the location the only thing was that the tide went out by the time I got there and the ring was found close to shore.

I’ll never get tired of what I do, I absolutely love finding people smiles and seeing the reactions when I find their ring and put it back in their hand. I also get to meet some amazing great people and Sam is one of them, I have the best job in the world! Thanks for the virtual hug Sam and the kind reward, historical times this COVID-19.

White Rock Beach Lost & Found Ring

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  778-838-3463

I received a call to help a young lady find her ring that she lost a few nights ago at White Rock beach. We talked on the phone and she told me the story how her ring was lost, spending the night at the beach with friends having a few drinks, and just being young and having fun, she felt her ring slip off her finger while in the water at about waist deep. Polina then told me the story behind the ring and how much it meant to her to find it, I was up for the challenge.

This was a bit of a hike down to the beach as it’s not a place I normally search, Polina sent me pictures of the area and told me a friend of hers had searched a couple of times with the metal detector in hopes of finding her ring. ( Nice guy)!

Polina decided to meet me that day to show me the areas she was in and where she believed the ring was lost. The poor thing, she was pretty beat up from the coral on the rocks, she could barely walk, she was so cut up and scraped up. When we made it down to the beach I could tell it was going to be a very difficult search due to the size of the rocks in the area, the one good thing was Polina remembered a rock that was a pyramid shape where she believed the ring may have slipped off her finger.

With alcohol and the fact that it was dark out and the beach was lit by the moonlight, it was almost hard to believe she could remember seeing such a rock. When we got to the beach she pointed out a pyramid-shaped rock that she wanted me to check around and I did, but had no luck. I took a look around and started to do a grid search the best I could do considering the difficulty of the size of rocks in the area. After approximately two hours I found her beautiful ring! Guess what it was near, yes the pyramid-shaped rock… Amazing! Polina was correct in believing she had lost the ring by a pyramid-shaped rock… Fantastic memory! Great Smile & happy ending.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polina was walking down the beach quite a ways away when I found the ring, I decided I was going to fake her out and tell her my batteries were dead in my metal detector and I had to go to my car… That’s when I surprised her with the ring!

How to find a lost ring, Vancouver Park…

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-778-838-3463

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  778-838-3463

 

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call from a young lady who said she lost her ring at a local park in Vancouver. She asked if I could come and help look for it, I asked her to make sure to check the area really well before I came out. Sometimes people can find their own ring just by looking in the area they believe it was lost in, after a half-hour I got the phone call to come out and help.

Paula was at the park with friends and family celebrating her nephews birthday, I asked her to text me when the party was coming to an end, she said around 6:30 pm. I arrived at 6:15 and was greeted by Paula, we discussed the possibilities of where the ring could be. I started a grid search in the most likely area I believed the ring could be in,  after one hour and 45 minutes I shifted my search into a bushy area that was very hard to swing my detector, I knew I had to use my pinpointer in this area.

Paula asked me if it was OK that they went home to celebrate her girlfriend’s birthday, I told her absolutely, as I knew I had another 45 minutes of searching left before it goes dark. Shortly after they left the area I found the ring and was able to call Paula back before they drove away.

Surprising someone with a ring that they lost is the funniest part of my job! I love the smiles and happiness it brings to a stranger! This ring was her father’s wedding ring that he gave her before she moved to Vancouver from Brazil. One can only imagine how sentimental that ring is to her and how important it was to find.
