The other day I got a call from from a gentleman from Vancouver Island. He asked If I could help find his lost ring and went on to tell me that the ring was very special to him.
He put all the rings his wife bought him over the years and had them melted down and made into one heavey ring with diamonds.
He told me he was visiting his son in Pemberton, BC (3 hour drive for me) and they were working on changing the oil for his son’s car. That night his father went to the Bed & Breakfast that he was staying at and in the morning he realized that his ring was missing…He checked his room but nothing, So he started to think where the ring could be…
1- The car he and his son were working on was in the barn and when they finished working on the car he remembered brushing off the straw from his son’s back.
2-The father remembered taking the car mats out and brushing off the straw at a Bed & Breakfast that he was staying at in town…
He thought for sure it must have came off when he was brushing the car mats, so he spent time searching the grass and shrubs around the area where he parked. When he couldn’t find the ring he remembered the barn and brushing the hay off his son’s back. The brushing motions could have made the ring come off his finger?
After he and his son did a search of the barn and no luck he went online to find a metal detector and found me on The Ring Finders. We made arrangements and I met his son the next day. He showed me the area and it wasn’t a big area and within 5 minutes I found the ring!
We figured the horse had stepped on the ring as it was buried in the dirt out of sight. His son was very happy and sent a text message to his father to tell him the good news.
The drive was a total of 6 hours there and back and the search took 5 minutes. I love my job! I always get to meet interesting people and learn the story of their ring and hopefully find their Smile!
Lost your ring…Call me ASAP! Thanks for racing my story!
