Lost Gold Wedding Band Spanish Banks, Vancouver…Found!

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

I was at work when I received a call from a young lady who told me that her husband lost his gold wedding band in the sand just in front of their pop up tent. She said that they had looked for the ring but it was impossible to find with all the sand.

Strangely I was getting off work early that day and I was only 15 minutes away from there location. I headed over to the beach and found parking and met the young couple, he showed me what he was doing and where he felt the ring was lost.

I turned on my detector and the 3rd target about 1 minute the young man had his gold wedding band back on his hand! I love the stories attached to the rings I find and I’m just as happy to find it as they are to get it back!

Lost & Found Ring in Langley BC…

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

I received a call at 8:30 p.m on Sunday in regards  to a lost ring at a  playground in Langley. The young man told me that the ring belonged to his 5 year old daughter and it was just given to her that day from her grandmother. The story was that the girls grandmother just arrived back from Ireland where she bought the ring for her granddaughter. It was lost only 4 hours after she was given the ring.

I was getting ready to hit the hay as I had to get up at 4:30 am when Scott called, I knew this had to be looked for that evening as a lot of people search playgrounds and that ring could have been found the next day. I jumped into my car and headed 25 minutes down the road to Langley to help find the ring.

It was just starting to get dark when I arrived and Scott showed me the area his daughter was playing in, so I started my search. About 20 minutes into the search I found the ring!

Lost Ring 3rd Beach Stanley Park…Found

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

I’m finally back to work after extended time off for a broken elbow, I finished a long day in downtown Vancouver and headed home, an hour drive away. I just parked the car at home, it’s 10:20 pm and the phone rings… A  young lady on the other end said are you the ring finder guy ? I said yes I am,  she went on to tell me that her very good friend lost a very sentimental gold ring at third beach in Stanley Park…Only 10 minutes away from where I was just working. I jumped back in my car and headed back to Vancouver.

I arrived just before 11:30 and met both ladies in the dark and they showed me the area the ring was lost. It only took about 6 minutes to find her ring, it was a very cool and different style of ring that was custom made. It gave me an unusual target signal and I was expecting that after she described the ring to me before I started the search.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She was one very happy young lady when she got her ring back! I love my job!

Lost Ring in Coquitlam River…Found.

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

A concerned mother called me yesterday and told me that her son lost a silver ring that was given to him by his late Uncle, the mothers brother. She said the ring was lost in the river and the current was pretty strong. These can turn out to be a very difficult search as the bottom of the river is rocky not sandy. That means the ring could bounce along with the current and travel down stream, so I started at the top where it was lost and did a test drop with a sliver ring to see if I could find that one. The first drop I could see that it settled behind a rock.

I started my search where the young man said the ring had fallen into the water but no luck. I worked my way down stream 3 or 4 times, up & down, but no luck. I asked the young man again if he could show me where he thought the ring fell into the water, he asked his friend and they were pretty sure of the location.

Because I worked that area 4 times I decided to go up stream a little and bang! about 8 yards up from the spot they said it fell in I found his ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love video taping and surprising people with their ring and for some reason when I got home I lost the footage of his reaction from my phone…

How to find a lost ring in the sand, Spanish Banks Beach… Vancouver, BC.

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

Summer is warming up and more calls are coming in…This call was from a young man who said that his friend lost a large gold ring while throwing a foot ball. These searches are usually 100% successful because they know that the ring came off while throwing the ball.

I told them to relax and I will find the ring, it was almost  a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, so I hit the road right away.

When I arrived and met the party I was introduced to the young man who lost what I found out was his wedding band, it was a huge one by the sounds of it. As I was getting ready to do the search and after asking my typical questions, I noticed there was a lot of eyes on me!  I knew the pressure was on! But not to worry as I also knew it was a matter of time before I find the ring. I knew I would find it as sand eats up gold, but the gold can’t hide from me and my detector!

30 seconds into the search I received a great signal on my detector and BINGO! I had his huge gold ring in my scoop. I loved the reaction of everyone on the beach as they cheered for the young man!

As always… I love the Smiles!

Lost Platinum Diamond Ring at Crescent Park, Surrey…Found!

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

I got a call from a young lady a week ago explaning how she had lost her ring at a park not far from where I live. I went out to the park the next day and we met and she showed me the area and it was a pretty big area. It was a hot sunny day and

I started my grid search, after 4+ hours and no ring I decided to come back with a friend when the weather cooled down a bit in the early morning. That way I could drag a foot and see the grid lines from the dew on the ground, this helps because its such a game of inches and could be missed very easily.

Flash forward a week and I’m in the grocery store waiting to pay when the lady in front of me with three kids looks at me and says I know you, I recognized her as well, but I could not put my finger on where we met. I thought for moment and said TheRingFinders? Her son looked up and said it’s Chris! He remembered my name…Amazing!

I told her that I would go back the next morning to take another look for her ring…I got there early in the morning and there was a group of kids setting up the area to play soccer so this put me in the lower area of the field which happened to be the hot spot…20 minutes into the search I found the ring!

This is the best part of the search & recovery…The Smile!

Lost Gold Ring in West Vancouver…Found!

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

I received a call from a young lady the other day asking if I could help her find a lost ring that was a gift from her mom & dad and daughter, many years ago. After asking a few questions I came to realize she wasn’t a hundred percent sure it was lost where she thought it was…in the garden.

To her it made sense because she put the rings on just before she went out for lunch then at the last second she  jumped in the garden to do a few things, she didn’t realize until later she was missing one ring. After searching the car and then searching her house she thought of renting a metal detector and that’s when she found TheRingFinders.

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert to come out and help you find your lost item…It will save you countless hours and ensure you that the ring is there or not there. I always wonder how many people have rented a metal detector and didn’t find their ring and just gave up? Its not as easy as we make it look, we know our detectors and importantly the environment we are searching and the questions that will help us get close to what we are looking for.

In this search I couldn’t use my metal detector because of the thick over growth of flowers & plants and the fact that there was wire hold the flowers up. OK bring out the handheld pin pointer and get on my hands and knees and start the slow search!

Not long after searching the first area, Bingo! I was lucky to find her beautiful ring in the second location!

Metal Detector Rental White Rock BC

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

Most people will rent or buy a metal detector to find their lost ring. The only thing is if you’ve never used one you will have a slim chance in finding your ring. The members and myself from TheRingFinders.com have many years of experience and the know how…This search today didn’t need the use of the detector…How many people who would have rented a detector would have found this ring? One thing we all do is think out of the box. Lynn was shaking a towel over her balcony when her 2 rings flew off her finger…

She found one ring in the small rocks very quickly. No need for a metal detector for that ring…But where did the second ring go? Maybe into the garden/rhododendron bushes but it would have been an easy eye ball search. I asked Lynn if there was a chance the ring could have slipped off finger in the house? She question herself and went inside to look. I stood there and thought… one ring fell on the rocks and why not the second ring?

Just then I notice a dip alongside of the foundation of the house, the rocks  sunk into the ground in a very small area so I took a knee and had a look and BINGO there was the ring! I was so happy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to surprise Lynn, I have the greatest job in the world! I get to make people smile!

How to Find a Lost Ring in Snow/ White Rock, BC…

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

Victim #4 (Lost Ring) due to the latest snow storm… Very shortly after my third successful recovery as I walked into my place to sit down and start the video process for my recent recovery, no sooner do I sit down, I get another phone call for a lost ring not far from where I live. I got a tell you, I love each and every call, the excitement of going out to help someone…The young lady who lost the ring her name was Alana, but I was on the phone with her mother who told me her daughter bought a metal detector to search for a diamond ring her grandmother gave her just the day before… I could tell by the tone of her voice that she believed the ring was gone. After talking for about 10 minutes I was confident that the ring would be found.

I asked her where she had lost the ring, she said one of 3 places…House, car, snow. Snow makes the most sense to me, so I arrange to come and meet them and search around the car we’re she was scraping snow off the windshield. When I first got there I met Alana and we discuss the possibilities and where we should start the search. She takes me over to the car we’re she was scraping snow off the windshield. Alana and her mother watch on as I begin to metal detect that area.

The first target signal turned out to be a target in the grass, not her ring. A few steps after that another signal and Bang! found it! This was a very quick search, most of our time spent was discussing where the ring could be, and it was where I thought it would be.

Picking up the ring without them knowing and then surprising them is always fun for me. I feel as good as the person I found it for!!!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Surrey/Langley…Found!

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

Victim #3 (Lost Ring) due to recent snow storm… I got another call from Royal who told me that he possibly lost his ring while he was scraping snow off his truck. He said there was a possibility it may have been lost in his house, but him and his wife searched his place pretty thoroughly and could not find it. He was at work when he called and asked me if there was a chance I could come down and meet him so he could show me where he was parked. It was bothering him so much at work thinking it maybe on the road somewhere.

I told him I’d come out right away to help him search for his lost ring. Anytime a ring his lost in the snow on the side of the road, its important to get there as quickly as possible to make sure the ring is not driven away by someones truck tire tread. Also you want to make sure you beat the snow plow as it can push a ring hundreds of yards down the road, into a pile of the snow.

I met Royal a short time later at his place, he showed me where his truck was parked and also where he went to another vehicle and where he walked from the house to that vehicle. I started my search where he was scraping the snow off of his work truck, still no ring. I started to grid search from the vehicle furthest away towards his truck, as I passed by the truck that he was scraping the snow off …Bang! found it. Very close to the road!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can watch the video and see the surprise look on his face when I showed him his ring! He had already given up the thought of finding it as it was already 30 minutes into the search.
