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…

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

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.

Lost Diamond Ring Found at Whistler, BC

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

I just finished a successful recovery for a man’s lost ring at 3rd beach at Stanley Park when my phone rang with a US area code. The first thing the young man said was… Are you TheRingFinder guy?  Yes I am I said, thinking I was going to be giving him a number to one of my American members, then he said he was at Whistler and his wife lost her diamond engagement ring at a photo shoot near a water fall.

I listened to the story about how she took off her ring and put it in her shorts as she was climbing down some big rocks, down to the water fall. When she got there she pulled off her shorts and when she put them back on she noticed her ring was not in her pocket. Her husband searched till dark for the ring with no luck, his wife was very upset and cried all night.

The next morning Cole went online to look and rent a metal detector and that’s when he found TheRingFinders directory and called. He told me the hike down to the water fall was around an hour, he also sent me pictures of where Allie took off her shorts as he thought that would be the likely area the ring fell out.

I could tell that it wasn’t going to be metal detecting friendly as there was some big rocks in the area. He was desperate to have me come out on Friday as the two of them were leaving town on an Alaska Cruise ship Saturday.  The only problem was I had to work. After a long discussing I decided to take the Friday off and head out to help the young couple.

I drove 1 1/2 hours to Whistler and met the young couple and drove them to the water fall. We hiked for close to an hour and arrived at the spot they believe the ring was lost. I used the detector in a very small area, but no signal. After rethinking the search it was inevitable that we had to pry up the rocks in the area and look underneath them.  Cole found some nice thick branches that we used to pry up the rocks, after 45 minutes it wasn’t looking good and that’s when I moved a sizeable rock from the area, as we were sitting talking I put my pin pointer into the hole and received a signal, then I put my hand into the hole and grabbed hand full of small pebbles and “Bang” there was her beautiful diamond ring in my hand!!!

Lost Diamond Ring in New Westminster, BC…Found!

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

Yesterday I got a call from a young man who needed my help to find his girlfriends 2 rings that she tossed out of his SUV while driving down the road. People are human, its true! They get mad and when they get mad in most cases rings go flying! I’ve had many calls over the years for these types of recoveries. I’d say most times I’m unsuccessful because of the locations I search are not metal detector friendly. “NEWS FLASH” (While writing this post the couple called me and said that the other ring was found in their home! She has no idea how it showed up there as she is certain she threw it out the window with the other ring…Makes me feel much better! I hate the thought of not finding what I’m looking for).

Well that makes it a happy ending! I have met so many nice people over the years doing what I do and I look forward to meeting many more!

 

Here’s the couple and her beautiful diamond ring.

Lost Gold Wedding Band Vancouver, BC…Found

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

Yesterday I was on a water hunt that started in February but I had to put it aside for warmer water. Well the temperature was perfect and the water was warm but after 4 1/2 hours in the stinky the beaver pond  I sadly had no success. I put in a total of 7 1/2 hours in a relatively small area but with some difficulties. The only thing I could guess was that the ring didn’t go in the water where he thought it did…? It happens, I don’t always have success but with that said I received a call while I was wrapping up the search from a young man that needed help finding his lost wedding band at a playground.

I headed out to the park and got there before him, I started my search and within 15 minutes I found his ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was extremely lucky that no one found it before us, he had lost it the day before and the following day was a hot one and lots of people at the playground even when I got there around 8pm.

The ring was found in front of the slide and visible to the eye, the good thing was that the wood chips helped camouflage the gold ring.

 

I love my job! If you or someone you know has lost a ring please contact a member of TheRingFinders.com ASAP
