Couple weeks ago I got a text message from a young man stating that he lost two rings at Crescent Beach and asking if I could help? I replied right away with no response and called as well but didn’t hear from him till the next morning. Time is crucial on searches like this as we all know so many people are detecting beaches now that you have to respond quickly.

I talked to brown on the phone he told me the story about losing two rings wasn’t quite sure but felt it was somewhere on the beach from where he sat at the time he went into the water, after talking a bit longer I realized that he lost him over a week ago. He stated that there was a good chance it could’ve been by the log where he was sitting but it was 100% sure, we all know people hunt around the logs more than any other places on the beach because they know this is a great place for rings to be found.

Bryan could not meet me there but Google Earth me the location and when I got to the beach I FaceTime with him and we decided that where I was was the right location, it only took a few minutes before I found his first ring and then right beside it was the second ring. I got to tell you he was one happy camper! Even though these rings were not made of precious metal is sentimental value is off the scales!

Friday night was a busy night for me as I had three searches scheduled starting approximately 9:00 PM one was in White Rock but just before I got there they found the ring and canceled. The second was at Jericho Beach,  it was for a young man who lost his grandfather signet ring that was gifted to him. He believed he lost it in the area where they were sitting as he took it off and put it into a bag and later could not find the ring. I spent close to three hours searching for this ring with no success, as I was getting into my car I got a text message that he found it in the bag at home. It happens more than you know where I’m going to search for something that wasn’t there but that’s OK the main thing was he found his ring.

My next search was at 2 AM at Kits Beach, this search was for a white gold wedding band that was lost when he took it off to keep it safe and put it in the shirt forgot after his swim and picked up the shirt and walked away. They gave me a good description of the area I came in and did my great search and found the ring in lesson 45 minutes. The kicker was his second year anniversary was in less than 48 hours so you can imagine how important this was to get that ring  back to him ASAP. Also note this was a John Cryer effect, two years ago I found that actors ring and still people remember the story… Amazing!

Lost Rings Hayward Lake In Mission… Found

I received a call from a young lady who had lost her diamond engagement ring and her diamond wedding band but the only thing was she did not know where she lost them. This is when you have to ask a lot of questions to narrow down the search area, one thing that stuck in my mind was she was at the lake in Mission but did not remember ever taking her rings off. She went on to talk about watching her kids and her friends kids while she was at the lake, I asked her if she put on suntan lotion and she said yes, on her kids and herself. In my experience it’s very common when mothers are at the beach looking after kids and that’s all they think about, so I wanted to go and search the area she was sitting on the beach. The kicker was the rings had been lost for almost one week, the good thing was at this particular lake they do not permit people to detect there without permission.

We got the permission and headed down to the lake with high hopes but also realistic to the fact that these rings could’ve been lost in several different places, this would be a closure search so she could rest assure it wasn’t there and start the search in other places around her house maybe her vehicle. These rings meant absolutely the world to this young lady and after talking to her for a few minutes I could tell how bad she felt and how she also came to the realization that she may never see these rings again.

She took me to the area she was sitting at and within only a few minutes I found the first ring! I gotta tell you I’m as excited as the person I find it for, I absolutely love what I do and how it affects peoples lives in such a beautiful and positive way. The second ring was only a few feet away and the day was a success! It took an hour and a half to get there and less than three minutes to find her smile!

Metal Detecting Service in Wonnock Lake, Maple Ridge

I have the best job in the world, I love helping people more than anything I’ve ever done in my lifetime. I get to make people smile, I get to hear their stories of what their ring means to them, and I get to see how happy they are when I find it…

It was late in the evening when I received a phone call from a young man who told me he lost a very expensive, very sentimental, and very large gold chain off the dock at Wonnock lake in Maple Ridge. I was heading to another search in Vancouver when he called, after hearing his story and the fact that he was going to sleep on the dock until morning to make sure nobody came back to get it, I knew I had to act fast.

I do not dive and I really don’t know many people who do in Vancouver that can use a metal detector underwater so this got me thinking I had to go and grab some treble Hooks and Jimmy rig some way to try to hook it under the water as I knew it was gonna be over my head and it was 7 1/2 – 8 feet of water.

The fact that some people knew he had lost it that day made us all little nervous I got there 7 AM in the morning and there was three people fishing off the dock, I set up and started my search with the hook in line but after three hours I knew I had to find a diver for this young man. Not long ago I had a phone call from someone who was looking for help to find a lost ring in 15 feet of water, after talking to him I decided to lend him my underwater equipment as I do not dive.

Sadly he did not find the ring, but he said anytime you need help looking for something call me, this stuck out in my mind as I was thinking of who I could find to help, my first thought was my member in Kamloops but he’s hard to get a hold of so I reached out to this young man.

Surprisingly he rearranged his whole day to come out and help us and he was the reason this young man’s got his beautiful custom made gold chain back. The great thing was, Stan who found it, got to experience what I experience all the time and that is the excitement and joy of returning something back to someone and seeing how it affects their lives.

You see this chain was made up of gold from this young man’s brother, uncle and grandfather, who sadly had all passed away. You can never get something like that back even if it was insured which I believe it wasn’t. It was so nice to see how happy Justin was when he saw his chain again for the first time in over 14 hours. It was equally exciting to see how happy it made Stan to return it back to him. Win-win for everyone!

Thank you very much Stan for making this a very happy day for Justin and one I’m sure he will remember for a very long time! Stan in the blue sh

I was told in Chinese culture a lost wedding ring before the person gets married is bad luck, but not if it’s found! I was called out by a couple who lost a ring the night before, I met with them at the beach and they show me the approximate location it was lost. After asking my typical questions I began my search and within 10 minutes found a beautiful golden diamond ring. If in their culture a lost ring is bad luck then a found ring must be good luck… I was so happy to be able to find her ring for them and see the smiles on their face even though his wife was wearing a mask I could tell there was a big smile underneath that mask.

On a sidenote just minutes after I found a ring a metal detectors came walking on the beach in the same direction where I found the ring. Timing in life is everything, I’m so happy the timing worked out today!

Here at TheRingFinders we don’t just find rings…We can find cell phones too, cell phones are such a lifeline in so many ways and have become so extremely expensive and they have a lot of memories such as photos and videos & Banking info. I went out the other night and happened upon two cell phones and was able to get both of them back to the owners. I have found a way through help of other members to pull the phone numbers from iPhones I find by putting the Sim card in my iPhone. There’s a way you can find the number, I have surprise quite a few people now by contacting them and saying I have found your phone. Some people just give up and get another phone, but their phone number stays the same therefore it often is a nice surprise for the people to get their original phone back. Especially at the cost of replacement nowadays, this young man was very happy to get his phone back that I found on a beach beside a fire pit. Great guy and happy to get it back to him!

I have the best job in the world, I love helping people more than anything I’ve ever done in my lifetime. I get to make people smile!

 

 

How to find a lost ring with a metal detector…

Yesterday late afternoon I received a call for help from a young man who had lost his wedding band at Spanish Banks Beach in Vancouver. He sounded very upset and really really wanted me to get out there as soon as possible to help find it. I understand what these items mean to people so I jumped in my car rescheduled another search and headed to Spanish Banks.

After asking all my typical questions it sounded like it could be a relatively quick search, I’ve been fooled many times by thinking that. When I arrived I met Chris who showed me a very small area where he believe the ring had fallen, a gathering up my gear and within a minute found his beautiful ring.

It’s amazing how fast the sand can eat up a persons ring and make it near impossible to find a good medley text her and someone who knows how to use it.

This definitely made up for the last three outings where I spent over 14 hours looking for a platinum ring at Kits Beach with no luck. Unfortunately it was lost in the soft sand, but I gave it a good effort.

 

 

 

 

I was so relieved for this young man to see the ring in my scoop so quickly, sometimes it happens like that and I will take it when I get it. It was great to meet Chris and his wonderful family and to see that smile back where it belongs.

How to Find a Lost Gold Ring at White Rock Beach…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was on a very long search at Kits Beach when I got a phone call from a young man who lost his ring at White Rock beach. I told him I couldn’t make it out there until the next day and if he could meet me there but unfortunately he was working that day but he sent me a very detailed map and I knew right away where his ring was lost.

When I went to the beach the next day the sand looked very high in that area and I knew the ring could be buried a bit deeper, I set up my grid and began my search. There really wasn’t many targets in this area which made me a bit nervous but after 45 minutes I got a great signal on my Knox 800 and I turn my cameras on and revealed the ring in its natural hiding place.

I have to say I’m as happy as the person I find the ring for when I see it in my scoop! It makes my day when you can walk onto the beach and find a ring for someone and know how that will affect them in such a positive way. I text messaged JP with a picture of his ring and moments later I got his response. Because he works so far away I dropped the ring off to his brother-in-law who lives closer to the beach.

His brother-in-law told me about the day the ring was lost and how hard they search for it, he was pretty amazed that the ring came back and he was able to get it back to JP.

I received a text message early yesterday morning in regards to a half of a gold Cartier love bracelet that was lost somewhere on Karen’s property. The young lady I went to meet told me the story that she had no idea where she lost her bracelet, it wasn’t until her housekeeper found half of Karen’s bracelet in the garden. That’s when she remembered working in the garden all day in the front and the back, the chances are the bracelet will be close to where the other one was found but we also knew it was possible it could’ve got caught up in the sleeve of her jacket and walked away to another location.

Karen wasn’t there to show me the area but her housekeeper came out and showed me exactly where she found the half of the Cartier bracelet. In my mind I thought this would be a very quick search and recovery, unfortunately it was quite the opposite. After spending several hours in the front garden area I move my search to the backyard, Karen came home and we met while I was in the backyard and she show me all the areas to search. We talked a bit more about the day she was in the yard and the possibilities of where it could be and it wasn’t till halfway through the day I realized the bracelet had been missing for over a month.

I was under the assumption it was lost only a day or two ago that made me think a bit more out of the box and you’ll see why later. After exhausting the backyard I moved back to the front yard and found a green bin full of yard trimming that was from the housekeeper the day she found the bracelet. I felt confident I was going to find the bracelet in this bin, unfortunately no such luck. Getting close to 7 hours and on my hands and knees in the garden, pulling out the recently planted plants and checking underneath in case the bracelet had fallen into the hole, this took a very long time with a lot of nails being found.

Knowing I’ve done everything I could in the garden the last thing that needed to be done was the front yard and after Karen showed me she crossed the yard to the fence and walked along the fence line I knew I had to search the whole yard. My thought process was I would see it before I even went over it with my detector because their lawn was so perfect, short grass and easy to see if something had fallen in between the blades of the grass.

I started my grid in front of the area where the other one was found but on the grass and within a minute I got a great signal and looked down but did not see the bracelet, I move the grass and moved a bit of the dirt and I saw the beautiful gold colour of her amazing Cartier bracelet. I got to tell you I was so happy to be able to find it for her, and now to surprise her, I got to meet her son who is a great young man her husband early in the morning who was working out and the housekeeper everybody was so kind and so nice and everybody was so excited to see that bracelet back where it belonged!

What I learned about this search was the fact it was lost a month ago, we had a horrible spring with lots of rain which does make sense that it was stepped on and completely buried out of sight. My lesson do not assume you’re going to see it, in actual fact it was out of sight.

Some searches are harder than others, some could take minutes, some could take hours and some could take days. This search took a hard four hours because of where this young man’s gold cross was lost. John attempted to search unsuccessfully and reached out to his father who had found TheRingFinders online and told him to call me. After hearing about the location John had lost his cross I knew it was going to be challenging, one of my first thoughts was to unscrew the wood planks from the deck and search from the top which would’ve made it so much easier, unfortunately the screws were stripped and this was not on private property it was public therefore I attacked it from underneath the structure.

For a long four hours of digging I hit pay dirt!!! I was so happy to see the gold looking back at me knowing this was going to make this young man very happy. I found out after meeting John the story of this gold cross and how it was from his late grandfather who had the same initials as John… These items that are lost with incredible stories attached to them can now be found by a group of Metal Detecting specialists on a global directory called ”TheRingFinders” over 550 members in 22 countries over $12 million returned in lost jewelry… That’s a lot of Smiles!!! That’s not including keys or cell phones or any other items people have asked us to find.
