Metal Detecting for a lost Diamond Wedding Band in Vancouver, BC


Last night I got a call from a young man by the name of Aim who lost his diamond wedding band . He told me he lost it in a small section of grass in front of his brothers place, he and his bothers and friends along with his sister-in-law spent a few hours searching for the ring, but no luck. This worried me because it was such a small section of grass with a good chance of eyeballing the ring… Why didn’t anybody see it? I l learned that they had raked the whole section from one side to the other hoping they could rake the ring forward into sight. The biggest fear factor in this search was that there was only 10% grass and 90% concrete… If the ring bounced off the grass and onto the concrete, it could’ve ended up on the road…he may never see his ring again or it would be flat like a pancake. The other problem was his wife had no idea he lost the ring as she was back in Toronto, so Aim needed his ring found! That’s when he went online and found The Ring Finders, he was looking to rent a metal detector but thought he’d have an expert take a look. It was a good thing he did as there were lot’s of interference due to overhead eleictrical wires  just above the search area. This always makes the search more difficult, so after 20 minutes of searching with my metal detector I used my light source and walk the area just to see if I can catch the glint of gold & diamonds. I then decided to use my handheld pin pointer, I started to grid search the grass on my hands and knees…This was a good thing!  Aim wasn’t looking and I found the ring just inches away from the sidewalk. I think it must have been racked close to the sidewalk and covered by grass.





What a beautiful looking ring! I was able to surprise Aim by turning on my video camera and asking a few more question…the ring was in my hand and he saw it and the smiles started!






I truly have the greatest job in the world!  I love every single search I do and helping people!  The last two days I’ve had three searches and I was unsuccessful for two of the three searches…Nice to get back on the finding track!

Good Luck on your music career Mr. Aim!

Thanks for reading my blog! Lost your ring… Call ASAP!


Best, Chris Turner

  1. Even though it looks like a small area, it appears to have been a difficult search. Back on the winning streak!

    Super awesome find Chris. Wow what a small area. It just shows how rapidly a ring can disappear, and how hard it can be to recover. To get down on your hands and knees with your knee bothering you, shows your dedication to bringing the joy back.

    Also I would definitely enjoy wearing a The Ring Finders shirt when I go out on a recovery, so let us know when they are available.

    Thanks for your post Steve, yes it’s amazing how fast a ring that size can hide itself from all the people that were searching for it before I got there…The knee is very sore but I go slow and rest it when I need too…I’ll keep you updated on hat’s & shirts…Happy Hunting, Chris
