Colin placed an ad asking for help re: his lost wedding ring. After reading the ad I sent Colin an email saying I think I can help.
Colin’s ring developed a spur inside and he had taken it off to get it repaired. But before he got a chance to get to the jeweller he lost it out of his pocket.
Days later we arranged for a search, I came with my trusty Whites MXT and bingo found it. OMG was Colin ever happy to get this very special 18K ring back.
After being lost for more then 18 months, Courtney contacted me to search for her lost ring. She was in a panic because she was moving within a couple of weeks. After meeting at the site, I searched until the rains came. I returned twice more and after 2 1/2 hours I was able to find Courtney’s ring.
Back Mid January Kenneth lost this wedding ring on the side of the road. He searched several times with no success. On Tuesday April 4th Kenneth emailed me
Hello! I’m afraid it’s been a couple months since this ring was lost but we were a little more confident than we should have been when we first dropped it. Out in deep cove a (I believe) white gold Band was dropped at the side of the road. I’m a little worried it may have been carried a ways by melting snow or rain, but I’m not sure how plausible that is. Its a rarely used section, we occasionally have someone park there, not more than a couple times per month.
I’m aware of roughly a 5×5 area I think it was initially dropped, but have been told by many people that white gold isn’t easy to detect. I’m mostly wanting to know how possible this could be after some time and with the metal involved, would love to pay someone good at this to find it instead of continuing to struggle.
I made arrangements with Kenneth to search today, by 10:05 am I was on site and started to search and within an hour I was able to send Kenneth a picture of his recovered ring.
Love my Job.

Sarah was training her horse on Monday, it was cold and she was wearing gloves.
Sarah took her ring off and placed it in her pocket for safe keeping. When she went to put it back on it was gone, so she searched and could not locate it. Sarah went home and told her husband I have really bad news.
She told me that she didn’t expect to ever see the ring again.

Thursday November 17th Kevan was playing Rugby and lost his wedding ring, it was dark when he discovered it gone. The next day he returned with a friend and a metal detector, they had no luck locating the ring. His wife Juliane heard about me from a friend Christine ( https://theringfinders.com/blog/Don.Marshall/page/2/ ) I had recovered her husbands wedding ring 3 years before.
Juliane called me and I went to the park Friday afternoon, no luck. After getting more details I returned Saturday am and recovered the ring.
I so love my job.
Chris was fly fishing in the Sooke River outside Victoria B.C. On Saturday October 15th, he got a fish on and was fighting this mature Salmon when he felt his Wedding Ring fall off. Now this is bad news but it gets worse, Chris was a newly wed only 7 weeks married and he losses his wedding ring.
Monday Chris did a Google search and came up with my name on THE Ring Finders web site.
We arranged to return to the River Tuesday at noon. After a short hike and a wade in the river, I got that strong tone, FOUND IT!
Chris screamed to the other fisherman, we found it, everyone was in shock. I so love my job!
My name is Susan and I saw the ad where you’ve found several rings from elk lake. I’m hoping my husband’s was among them.
A couple of years ago, he lost his original wedding band in elk lake while we were swimming. It would have been around the Hamsterly beach area.
The ring itself is really nothing special to look at…it’s just a large (like men’s size 12-14) round silver band with a bit of a round the overall shape (if that makes any sense). Although it’s not very expensive or anything special to look at, it holds HUGE sentimental value to him. It was the original ring we were supposed to marry with 16 years ago…then we parted ways for a while; however, we got back together and have now been married for 12 happy years.
I know it’s a long shot but I’m hoping this is one of the rings you’ve come across. I would love to surprise him with it.
Thanks for posting this ad and doing this for people. It’s a very kind thing to do.
Live ~ Laugh ~ Love=
Yes I had recovered this ring 2 years ago and today I was able to reunite it with Susan and Rob.
Lost Friday June 26th 2015 Recovered Monday June 29th 2015
I (Paul) lost my custom wedding ring last Friday at Durrance lake when I was at the waters edge with my son and I was throwing away a piece of fish bait my son had picked up. I only heard the sound of the ring hitting the water and couldn’t tell where it went. Incredibly Don was able to locate it three days later twenty feet from shore in less then ten minutes!
The hunt required my trusty water machine ( J.W. Fishers) and a long handled scoop. Paul had a good idea where he was standing when he lost it but no idea where it landed. I started a grid search and found it in ten minutes on the first pass.
Totally Awesome ring Paul and it was so great to get it back to you.
July 20th 2013 Roy lost a ring in Elk Lake that was a very special ring because it was custom made from his late mothers jewelry. When Roy was on an air mattress in July of 2013 he felt and watched his ring fall off and sink to the bottom. He jumped off and figured that it was about 10 feet deep.
Roy hired a diver the next day, who spent 1 hour and 20 minutes searching, but no luck.
Fourteen months later I was diving with my Hookah and an under water detector looking for another lost ring, when under 6 inches of silt found this ring.
I knew this was a very special ring so I had to try to find the owner.
I searched the internet and found Roy’s ad and texted him, ” I think I have found your ring I said”. A few minutes later my phone rang, the man at the other end gave me a description of the ring in my hand and we arranged to meet later that day.
Roy appeared to be in shock but very happy, fourteen months later his lost ring was recovered and returned to him.
I love my job.
