Chad was in Skaha Lake behind his family home teaching his daughter how to swim when he realized his !8k White Gold wedding ring was missing,  he searched the water to no avail. 3 weeks later he found me on The Ringfinders website. The day I got the call I was searching Okanagan Lake for an engagement ring successfully, so I responded the next morning. After almost 2 hours of searching in the mucky silt I was feeling discouraged knowing that the ring is there somewhere, I took 3 steps from the boat dock and success there was the ring.

Shantel called me early morning that her brother in law had lost his 14k wedding ring in the Lake at Gyro Beach. They spent two hours the evening before searching for it, to no avail. I responded to her call right away, and started my search pattern, fortunately they knew the approximate location. My only concern was that there was another metal detector working the area, however within forty minutes I had the ring in my scoop. The owner Javid had not yet told his wife that he had lost it, so he was delighted to have it back on his finger.

John`s daughter had the ring custom made for his birthday out of 18k white gold and 7 diamonds. John was planting potatoes behind his orchard when after spreading the straw around them he noticed his ring was missing.  After calling me I arrived the next morning, surveyed the potato plot and decided that I could cover the whole plot. Luckily the corner that I started at was where it was lost, and it was found within six footsteps.  Another happy customer.

It was an unusual Winter day in Lake Country BC, when Naomi was out in the  backyard with her dog. On returning indoors she noticed her 14k White Gold Diamond Wedding ring was missing. She looked me up on The Ringfinders website and asked if I could help her. The day she called at 6:45 am, it was -10 degrees Celsius and she had over 2 feet of snow in her yard, I responded by noon the same day, it was still snowing heavily. She was not sure of the location in the yard, but had an idea, her husband Jason was out with a flashlight hoping to locate it, without any luck. After the hour drive to their home they showed me their yard, I was surprised at the depth of the snow but suspected that the ring would not have fallen all the way through the snow. I spent an hour gridding the yard which was difficult going, I told them that if I did not locate it I would return the next week when the snow would have melted to a lesser depth, in the worst case I would return when the snow was gone and not to worry, it would be found. After recovering my breath and warming my hands I gave the worn down pathway one last sweep when I got a good signal, success the ring was found.

I just got home from 3 hours of swinging my detector in Okanagan lake when there was a phone call and an email from Jaime that she had lost her ring in the Lake. She was at the Doggie Park throwing sticks for her 2 dogs Tosh and Reo  when her ring caught on the stick and went into the water. I met her at the park within 30 minutes and she showed me the location of the throw, I knew from experience that this part of the lake is littered with metal junk but figured a gold ring should be an easy find. On my first sweep one way with no obvious good target, I did a sweep the other way and dug every signal. After 90 minutes and a bag full of junk I was starting to get discouraged, but I knew the ring had to be there, so after searching the beach I widened my search in the water away from the target area and within 10 more minutes we had the ring, persistence pays. Jamie had sentimental feelings for the ring as it was handed down to her from her Auntie, she learned that when throwing sticks into the water do not wear your rings.

I responded at 8am the next morning, Chris suspected that it came off while he was shaking the snow off a tree, we went back and searched under the tree, then started a circle around the tree. Within 10 minutes we had the ring and Chris was happy. A quick response and a good suspect location paid off.

Caden was celebrating his graduation with a large group of his peers at a beach resort North of Kelowna when he realized he had lost his ring next to a cliff leading down to the beach. He marked the location and returned later to search for the ring with no success. His mother Tara was very concerned as the ring was a gift from his grandmother, she found me on the website and phoned me. I responded within the hour and started me search in the bushy slopes, within 10 minutes the ring was located. If Caden had not marked the location it would have been a difficult search.

Louise`s daughter and friends were out of High School enjoying the recent snow fall when she realized she had lost her mothers gold ring and her silver finger splint. Louise had 6 school friends out three times searching for the rings, they even used a metal detector to no avail. I was out of country, but as soon as got home my wife gave me the message and I arranged to meet Louise at the location. It had been almost 2 weeks since the loss, she gave me the story and showed me the trail they took from the school to the park, and were they played throwing snowballs, I told her that would be the prime location, take me there. Once we arrived at the location low and behold we looked down and there was the gold ring melted out of the snow, the silver finger splint took a little more searching but we were successful.     I made another friend.
