Lost gold ring in White Rock BC…Found!

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

I get a call from a young lady telling me that she was at White Rock Pier when her husband was giving her a beautiful 22k gold band when it suddenly slipped out of his hand and fell into the ocean below. She told me at that moment they both thought it was a gone forever.

She went back the next day and thought she saw the ring in the water below but it wasn’t the ring. She went home that night and went on google and searched the internet and found TheRingFinders. We decided to meet at the pier and she showed me the exact location the ring had fallen into the ocean.

Because the tide was low in the early morning I decided to go before work the next day. I got up at 3:30am and was at the beach by 4:50am I had the ring by 5:15 am and on my way to work! It was lucky the ring was there as its a very popular place to metal detect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoy the recoveries and I’m as excited to find the ring as the people are who get the ring back!

Lost Gold Family Heirloom Ring/Vancouver, BC… Found

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

I was at work when I received a phone call from a gentleman who told me that his daughter had lost her ring at the park. He asked if I could help her,  I said of course, I asked him to have his daughter call me so I can discuss the search time and place.

After talking to Sabrina for approximately 10 minutes in regards to her lost ring, I felt confident we would find it. I also knew how important it was to find because it was gifted to her by her late grandmother, this ring meant the world to her! I could hear it in her voice!

I arrived at 9 PM on the side of the street where I met Sabrina and her father, we walked to the park and she show me what had happened and where she was sitting when the ring came off her finger. I did a reenactment and watch my ring land on the sidewalk, this made me think if they hadn’t checked the sidewalk someone may have already found it. Sabrina was very confident that she saw the ring bounce up off the pavement and go into the bushes along the side of the walkway.

I started my search and after close to an hour and a half and no ring I decided to look under the bench that she was sitting on, to my surprise there was her beautiful gold ring! It was very dark so I put the ring in my hand and told them I needed to go back to my car and get another metal detector.

I did this because it was so dark I knew I wouldn’t be able to get the footage of her smile and reaction when I surprised her with the ring… When we got to the car I started up my camera and videotaped her by asking  a couple of questions about the ring and the search.

I love getting the reactions of people for the first time when they see their ring… it’s priceless!!

Contact: (778) 838-3463

My wife and I gave a ride to a friend from work few weeks ago and we talked about TheRingFinders and how we help people find there lost jewellery…Flash back a couple of weeks and my wife meets Liz at a concert and they start talking and Beverly mentions TheRingFindersw and her friends expression tells her that she’s going to hear a story of a lost ring and so we begin!

The story was that she gave her boyfriend a nice silver ring 3 months ago and how he lost it a few days ago. They searched for hours but couldn’t find the ring and her boyfriend felt naked without his ring. We made a date to search for the ring and we picked Liz up and she showed us the area the ring was lost in, long grass and hard to find without a detector. I set up my detector and within 3 minutes I had found the ring…

Lost Gold Pendent Found in North Vancouver…

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

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.

Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!

Found Wedding Band at 3rd Beach, Stanley Park.

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

I get a call from a young lady that told me her husband lost his titanium wedding band at 3rd beach in Stanley park. After asking a few questions I find out that he lost the ring 2 days ago, that’s a long time to be lost on a public beach. I looked up the low tie and it’s 10 am the next morning, so I get up at 4:30 am and head to the beach to hunt the water as its going out. I had to be at work at 10 am so I needed to find the ring quickly.

When I get there I kill some time searching the dry sand as the tide goes out, I was getting lots of change and lots of garbage but it wasn’t why I was there. Tide was starting to go out so I hit the area the ring was in and I start to do my grid search. After around 45 minutes of searching I get a good signal and one scoop later I see his Black titanium ring.

Lost Platinum Wedding Band Fraser River, Richmond…Found!

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

I get a call from a young lady who tells me her husband lost his platinum wedding band off a dock on the Fraser River…My first thoughts were I need a diver and that it could be a dangerous search as that river has a strong currant. After talking to her she said that her husband dove in and tried to search for it and that he was able to touch bottom at low tide.

This was encouraging as i don’t know of many fishing docks that you can touch bottom, we discussed the search and made a time to meet the next day at low tide.

I decided to bring my wetsuit and I’m sure glad I did as the water was very cold surprisingly! When I jumped in I could barely keep my head above water and that made it very hard to search on my tip toes! After 20 minutes or more I got a good signal but had a heck of a time trying to scoop it up. It was a chin deep water hunt!

Finally I checked my scoop and saw it in the basket so I put it in my hand and told them that my batteries had died and that I needed to change them…This bought me time to do the surprise reveal and capture the excitement on camera…

It was a very hot day, temperature 105 degrees as I was home trying to keep cool I receive  a call for help in regards to a lost diamond ring possibly lost in some hay in the barn. The young lady told me that there was a few places it cold have been lost but the one place she felt it could be was the barn. Her and others searched the hay but no luck. Its like looking for a (Ring in a Haystack)

I jump in my car and head out on a little over an hour dive to get to the location. When I arrive I was greeted by Bev and her nephew (great young man). We went to check her vehicle first and nothing there. Bev walked me to the barn and minutes later she had her beautiful diamond ring back on her finger!

Metal Detector Rental Vancouver, BC.

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

 

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert who has found & returned over 500 lost rings to their very happy owners!

Most people think of renting a metal detector when they lose their ring, the problem is if you’ve never used one you can be walking away from finding your ring. Its not as easy as it looks and if you’re a first timer it can be confusing, that’s when a metal detecting expert comes into play.

This call was to find a lost diamond ring that has been handed down from generations, three to be exact. I’ve always said that every ring we find for someone has an amazing story attached to it and how that story ends if we can’t find it. This call was to help find her ring in the ocean at English Bay and how she went and bought goggles and searched for hours with no luck! Thankfully we live in the computer age and people have a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever!

I drove to the beach right away and met the young lady and her friend and they showed me the area they believed the came off. It took me maybe 10 minutes to find and the look on her face was priceless when I showed it to her!

Lost Wedding Band at Wreck Beach…Found!

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

It was a hot Sunday evening when I got a call about a lost wedding band at Wreck beach, I listened to how he lost his ring in chest deep water and that he was only married 3 weeks and how important it was to find it. I asked him what time he lost the ring and checked my tide table cart and if I left right away I could get there and still have a chance to find it before the water got too deep.

It’s important to act quickly as there are a lot of people now a days searching low tides in the mornings. So I headed out and met the young couple and we headed down the 500 steps to the beach to find his ring. They showed me the area in around waste deep water and it only took around 20 minutes to locate.

I never get tired of seeing peoples smiles when I put that ring back in their hand!

Lost Diamond Ring at Kits Beach…Found!

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

I was out visiting my grandson on the Island when I received a distress call from a young lady who lost her diamond engagement ring at Kits beach. I listened to her story on how she lost her ring and how they searched but couldn’t find it, I could tell she was very upset and that she thought she’d never see it again.

She went on to tell me that she was calling me from the airport and she was on her way back home from visiting Vancouver. She also said that she was getting married in 3 months, I asked her if she took any pictures of the area on the beach where she had lost the ring and she said she did and sent them to me.

After taking a look at the pictures I knew exactly where on the beach she was, I told her that I’d be there in a couple of hours to find her ring. I headed back to Vancouver after a day with my grandson and went directly to Kits beach. I found the area she lost the ring and started my search, after 20 minutes and the good signal I was looking for and in my scoop was her beautiful engagement ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to send her a text message with a picture of her ring and when she landed back home In Saskatchewan the first thing she saw on her phone was a picture of her ring. The next thing I did was go to Fed-EX and ship back her beautiful engagement ring.
