It always starts off with a phone call or a text message in regards to a lost ring,  Strangely I was already recovering a ring only 4 miles from this young man’s location. The odds of that is incredible that I’d already be two hours from home doing a search and receiving another search request only minutes from where I was. After finding a beautiful custom-made diamond ring for a young couple I headed off to the next location to help this young man. He wasn’t there as he lost it days before, I asked him questions about the location and if he could send me Google earth and he did, I went out there and did my best but could not retrieve the ring.

 

I wasn’t too concerned that someone else may have beat me to it because of the location he had lost it in, it was deep deep water up to my chin, also muddy, branches and rocky location that a lot of people do not like searching because of the difficulty involved. We made arrangements to meet on the weekend 4 days later, I met this young man and he told me the story of his lost ring. He was only married three months so you can imagine how painful this was for him and his wife to of lost this beautiful gold ring.

 

I told him it would be a very difficult search due to the conditions and the depth but I was willing and up for the challenge. After only 30 minutes I was able to retrieve his ring out of this muddy mess and surprise him!

Lost Diamond Ring Hayward Lake, Mission, BC…Found

I get a call from a young lady who told me that she had lost her ring at the Hayward lake in Mission, this is about a 2 hour drive from where I live. We discussed the search over the phone and the fact that it was lost where someone else could easily find it with a metal detector I knew I had to get there as soon as possible. We met the next morning and I heard the story of the ring and what it meant to them to get it back. I assess the search area, which I thought was going to be smaller and it turned out to be half of the swimming area. This could easily take a couple hours to grid search, but that’s OK I will do what I have to do to find that smile.

Because this lake/park does not allow Metal Detecting we had to get permission first, the permission was granted and I began my search in the areas they believe the ring could be in, after 20 minutes and no ring I asked a few more questions, one place stood out to me and I started searching that area and found her beautiful custom made diamond ring only minutes later… A total of 30 minutes to find her lost Smile!

Lost Ring found on Vancouver Beach

I got a text message the other day in regards to Lost Ring at Locarno Beach Vancouver. I quickly called Maya to discuss the search and found out that she had taken the ring off and put it in your shorts pocket while she went for a swim, when she got out of the water she put on her shorts and didn’t realize till later that the ring was missing.

This has been happening a lot lately, people taking off the rings to keep them safe then forgetting and the ring falling out of her pocket or out of the shoe, very common. I found out that she had lost it the day before which always is a concern that somebody might beat me to it. When I arrived and started my search I quickly started finding pieces of iron, bottle caps ,and pull tabs so I was confident we had a good chance of finding it.

Maya also told me that she was going to dinner that night at her boyfriends parents place and it was her boyfriend’s mother who gave her the ring, so you can imagine how important it was that she had the ring on when she went there for dinner.

After 10 minutes I found her beautiful ring, I went to surprise her and my camera was full and I had no space to make the video I tried to do it on my GoPro I have to edit and see if I have enough footage to show you… the most important thing is we found her ring and her smile

I got a text message from a young man saying his friend lost a very special ring and asked if I could help. I asked him to get his friend to call me to tell me about the search area and where she thought she lost the ring. After discussing it over the phone we met up after work to take a look for it.

I met the young lady and her friend and she showed me where she was wiping some dirt from her pant leg and felt her ring fly off, there was a possibility it could’ve gone into the water but by the way she was standing I felt it was still in the grass. I was right it was further than I thought it would’ve travelled but you find them where you find them.

This ring was very special to the young lady it was a gift from her mother, a ring for protection. I was honoured to be able to find it for her and help continue the story.

Metal Detector Rental Vancouver, BC… Lost Rings Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting specialist, most people buy or rent and metal detector to find their lost ring.  When they do not find it, out of desperation they call me for help.  When I find it they ask me why did you find it and we couldn’t? I have close to 50 years experience in metal detecting, the equipment is only as good as the person using it. If you’ve never used a Metal Detector it’s not as easy as one would think, there’s a lot more to it than just swing the loop.

This ring was lost under a patio in loose rocks and leaves, the young man went under there for a little while but cannot find it. When I got there I search the outside edges of the patio and then I took my search under the patio. After a short time I got a signal my hand held pin pointer and found his ring under some rocks and leaves. It’s amazing how these rings disappear from sight and find a hiding place where people can’t see it.

I received a text message from a young lady who said she lost her engagement ring in the water at Trout Lake, this lake was only 20 minutes from my location and I just got off of work so I went to meet her at the lake. When we met at the lake it was just after 9 PM and it was the longest day of the year so I knew if I got in the water quickly I’d be able to record this search with the light we had left. I also decided to take a silver ring with me as I knew her ring was silver with gold,  just a fake her out when I did find it. She went on to tell me it was in waist deep water and she only lost it one hour before I got there so I was very confident this ring would be found quickly.

I asked her how she heard about TheRingFinders and she told me the lifeguards gave her the number… I got into the water and within 20 minutes I found her beautiful custom Silver & Gold engagement ring. I faked her out with my silver ring and then presented her with her ring, I love surprising people and seeing the reaction!

Lost Gold Ring at Kits Beach, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

Could you imagine how this young man felt when he lost a very special gift that his father gave him, it was a gold Cartier ring. He took it off when he went swimming and put it in his pant pocket when he got out of the water and dried off he put his pants back on, when he got home he realized his ring was missing.

He returned to the beach early in the morning and saw three people metal detecting, he asked all of them if they could help and they search the area but could not find the ring. He then found TheRingFinders online and gave me a call the next day. I listen to a story and the fact that people were already searching for the ring made me believe it could’ve already been found as a lot of people metal detector the beach during the night and in the early morning hours. I explained to Alex that someone may have already found it but what I would do is come out and search just for the closure aspect of it.

I arrive to the beach approximately 24 hours after the ring was lost at around 9 PM the beach was still full of people so I could not swing a detector, I sat and waited for a while as the area starting to clear off I started to grid search, a lady came running up to me crying and asking for help,  she lost a very special bracelet, I found that within a minute or two and continued on to my search for the lost gold Cartier ring.

I searched about 75% of the area but still had 25% or more to search but too many people were still showing up to the beach so I went back to my car and slept for a little while when I woke up it was late in the evening close to 2 am in the morning and hardly anybody was on the beach. I began my search and after 30 minutes to my surprise I found his beautiful gold ring!

I got a to say I was surprised!  I think he will be when I show it to him later on in the week. I decided to text him and tell him that I couldn’t  search as much of the beach as I needed to because of the crowds of people. I told him I’m going to go back in the middle of the week to continue my search. He agreed to meet me Wednesday afternoon and that’s when I was going to surprise him with his ring.

I love hearing the stories of what these items mean to people and I’m so honoured to be able to help continue this beautiful story for this young man.

Lost silver pendant at Jericho Beach… Found

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

This young man lost a very special silver pendant at Jericho Beach, three days later he reaches out for help. We made arrangements to meet at the beach unfortunately it would have to be after I finished work, so we set up a time for 1:30 AM to search for the silver pendant.

After meeting Vinny and his sister and her boyfriend in the early hours of the morning we walked along the beach to the area where he lost his pendant. After removing a lot of trash in the area I begin my search for almost two hours, after cleaning out all the target signals except for one big iron target, I decided to move all the sand away from the Iron and that was a good thing as Murphy’s Law would have it… I found his pendant which was right on top of the iron target.

Close to 3:30 AM I was able to surprise Vinny with his cherished silver pendant…

Lost gold wedding band at Port Moody Park…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

 

I was at the beach metal detecting when I got a text message at 6:00 AM asking for help to find a lost ring. I replied quickly and called to ask about the search. He went on to tell me that he had lost his wedding band the night before, after a soccer game, He and his teammates  spent an hour searching for it in the grass but couldn’t find it.

He was thinking of taking the day off of work to meet me there, I told him not to do as I felt the ring would still be there, because he and his teammates couldn’t find it last night after the game so I wasn’t worried about anybody else finding it.

We arrange to meet at 5:30 PM that day, I arrived at 5 PM and waited in the shade until we met. A nice young man name Alex and his wife Kaushal met me at the park and showed me the area where they believe the ring was lost. This search took a matter of 5-10 minutes before I found his beautiful custom made wedding band.

Even though his wife and wonderful mother-in-law said it was no big deal and that they could buy another one and redo their vowels, I’m sure they said that so he’d not be so upset and to rest his mind, because when I found it Kaushal became emotional showing Alex and me that it really did mean something to have it found…

Lost Engagement Ring UBC Rugby Field…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463

Beverley and I were working on a movie set in Vancouver,  close to the end of a 12 1/2 hour day I received a call from a young lady who had lost her beautiful engagement ring at UBC rugby field. She went on to tell me she was playing baseball with her friends and believe she had lost her engagement ring in one or two areas of the field. The great thing about this was it was only 15 minutes away from where we were working in Vancouver so it was quick to get there as the sun was setting. We meet the young couple at the field and they show us the area where they believe the ring could’ve came off, the first area was where she was putting suntan lotion on, the second area was where she had taken her glove on and off.

I decided to go for the area where she had put on suntan lotion on and took off her ring. I started my grid search and could tell the grass was very short hard to hide a ring, I told her and showed her examples of how the ring would probably sit up on this grass and someone may have found it. After six gridlines we started thinking of the other location because she had told me the grass was much longer. However I did not want to stop searching until I completed my grid and another line later into my grid I saw the ring on top of the grass. I love my job I really do it’s awesome to see how happy you can make a complete stranger by finding something as we all know, is so sentimental.
