Yesterday I received a phone call from a woman. She told me that the day before her husband had lost his wedding band when he had been working on their farm. It was a really big ring , 25 gram, in white, yellow and red gold. They had been looking for it the whole evening, but could not find the ring in the snow. And it was still snowing…. They were pretty sure that it was lost outside the house. Could I give it a try she asked?
Of course I could, I put my gear in the car and drove over to their home. It started to get dark and snowing heavy when I got to the farm. I started to search the garden, outside the house, where they were sure they had lost it.
After a hour and a half I still no ring, I ask the owner if he was sure he had not been anywhere else. Well, he said, I was over to the parking lot a couple of hundred meters away, but I’m pretty sure i did not loose it there. At this time I was cold and wet, but I really wanted to find the ring, so I told him that I wanted to try the parking lot.
We went over there and after 15 minutes a got a nice signal. And there it was. A massive beautiful gold ring. Oh boy, was he a happy man when I gave him the ring! I just love this job!

Yesterday morning I got a call from a young lady. She told me that the night before her and two friends, had be out on the town. On their way home they had start playing in the snow. They were really having fun, but it was not that fun when she discover that she had lost her ring.
This was a ring was given to her from her aunt many years ago. It was white gold and five diamonds attached to it. They had tried to find it themselves, but they could not find it in the snow. Now she was really sad and desperate. They had found my contact details on my Norwegian webpage. Could I help?
Of course I could give it a try, it was a bit far to drive out to them, but I pack up my gear and jumped in my car.
Two hours later I met the young lady and her two friends. We all went down to the place they had been playing in the snow the night before. Very cold but I turned on my detector and start the search. The two or three first signals turned out to be trash and the girls started to look very sad.
A new signal, and this one sounds really nice, I put the scoop down in the snow and up comes a really nice gold ring inside it. I asked the young lady to come over and to take a look in the scoop.
I’ll never forget that smile when she saw the ring in there, and her hands was shaking when she picked up the ring… Yes she was happy! and so was I. What a great job this is!
