Lost ring with 44 diamonds at English Bay Beach…Where can you be?

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

A few years ago I received a call from a young lady who lost her custom made ring with 44 diamonds. She told me she was at English Bay Beach, after work I met up with her to go over the area were she believed the ring was lost.

As I arrived at the beach and met the lady, she showed me where she was swimming and where she believed the ring came off. She was lined up with the floating dock when she realized the ring was gone, this gave me a good line on how to judge the area when the tide was low enough to search. I knew that the dock would move approximately 40 feet with the slack.

I walked with her and discussed the area of the lost ring and knowing the time and the water level she lost it in, I had to hit a very low tide to have a chance to find this ring.

As we talked more she told me that she was leaving the next day to go back home to Austria. She gave me 100 Euros and told me to keep it for my time and effort for helping her find the ring. I told her I’d do the best I could, and I would keep her updated on the search.

I had to wait a week to the tides were low enough to give me a chance to get out to the ring, I started my search of the area. I did a slow grid search up & down the beach for hours and found no ring.

The next day I returned and did a grid search in the same area but this time I crossed the grid. I found nothing and spent more then 3 hours searching. I felt confided it wasn’t in the area that I did the cross grid in, so the next thing to do was re-think the area.

Could it of been further out or closer in? The next 3 visits to the area produced no ring, just change, pull tabs, and other junk. Where could this ring be? Knowing how large of an area the ring could be lost in, and how long it took me to do my grid search, this could take a very long time.

I’m usually very successful at recovery lost jewellery for people and I don’t like to give up, but I felt it was best to offer other treasure hunters a chance to find this ring and make the 100 Euros before the ring disappeared into the sand forever. I posted the lost ring and the location on my website Finders.

I contacted a few treasure hunting friends that I know and told them to spread the word. After my many searches and close to two months with others searching now, no sight of the ring.

Then one day I got a call from a local treasure hunter I know asking if the ring had been found, I said not yet. He asked how many diamonds were in the ring, I told him 44, he said his friend found it the other day!

Close to three months later the ring was found by a treasure hunter named… Jerry Russell. What a great guy to turn the ring over to me in order for me to return it to it’s owner! I was honored to give him the 100 Euros!

We met at the beach and he showed me where he’d found the ring, it was no where close to where the lady thought it was lost, and where I and other were searching. The ring had come off her finger close to the shoreline, almost as soon as she started her swim.

As she was swimming, and when she saw her ring was gone, that was where she believed it was lost. In actuality it was lost much sooner!

Are metal detectorist finding rings at the beaches? Yes they are! And most are great people who want to help find the owners of the rings, because they know how much it means to them!

I love my Job!

Tungsten Carbide Ring Found at Jericho Beach… Is it yours?

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I went out the other night at a low tide on one of our local beaches(Jericho Beach) to do a little metal detecting. As I was waiting for the tide to go out I decided to search the dry sand, I received a faint signal and scooped up a Tonnie (Canadian $2.00 coin) that was deep down in the sand.
After digging a few more targets I received another faint signal, this one was deep as it took me three scoops to get it out. It was a ring! It was heavy! But what kind was it… White Gold, Platinum, Silver? None of the above!

This was a first for me in the ring department, its a Tungsten Carbide Ring. Reading up on it, they are becoming very popular and commonly used as a wedding band.

Its a very heavy ring and very smooth, due to the depth it was found at, I’d say 12 inches or more, it makes me believe that it was lost last summer or the summer before.

I like this ring and I’d like to find its owner! The hardest part is just that! Finding the owner. Who ever lost this ring has given up now, who knows, he could of been visiting Vancouver.

Three other items of interest I found that night…

1st… A hat badge from…”The Seaforth Highlanders” Gaelic writing… Cuidich ‘n Rich (Save the King)

2nd… Commemorative Medallion, its hard to make this one out as it was so corroded, on the front is a picture of what looks to be a miner. Alaska Pacific Yukon Exposition 1909 Seattle USA, On the back I can only make out the words… Alaska Nugget. After researching this on the internet, it was Seattle’s First Worlds Fair.

3rd… Along with all the change I found that night, I also found a United States Silver 1880 (One Dime)… Bad shape as its been in the sand for a long time.

Help find my Diamond Ring at 3rd Beach…Leaving tomorrow!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463


A couple of years ago during the summer months I got a call from a man who said that his wife lost her diamond ring at the beach. He said they had spent hours searching for it and someone told them to get a flyer at the lifeguard tower for this finder guy who will come out and help them…

Would you be the finder guy he said in an English accent on the phone… I replied yes that would be me. He told me about the lost ring and gave me the location, I grabbed my detector and headed to the beach.

When I arrived at the location I saw people kicking the sand and looking around, I was greeted by a man and woman who were very happy to see me. They told me they were from London, and they were leaving tomorrow to go home.

They were a very nice couple and had made friends very quickly with the people on the beach as most of them were busy searching for the ring. I listened to the story about how the ring was lost and where, she had taken the ring off and put it on the blanket so not to lose it when she went in for a swim.

Before they were leaving she picked up the blanket to shake off the sand… Ring goes flying! OK I have the idea now where the ring can be, I start my grid search of the area and find the usual garbage, pull – tabs, bottle caps, some change.

Every signal I get, gives the lady hope then she gets depressed when I show her a pull tab. I heard people on the beach telling her… he’ll find it don’t worry!

After extending my search further out and across I received a good signal, I bent down and scoop up the sand and at the bottom of my scoop this time is the glimmer of diamonds, as I pulled out the ring she gave a little scream and the people on the beach started cheering. That was a first for me!

They were very happy and I could tell how relieved she was to have the ring back on her finger, It took 10 minutes to find, for her it felt like a lifetime.

I love my Job!

Shaughnessy Vancouver, Midnight Diamond Ring Discovery

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I get call a few years back when I was at work, this young lady tells me that she just lost her diamond ring while wiping the snow off the car window.

She goes on to say that it was a three Layer White gold wedding band with 30 small diamonds, ten in each band.

Unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to get out to her place to search for it until I was finished work, and that would be late as I work in the film industry and our hours are long.

She decides to search for it herself and call me back if she doesn’t find it. She and her neighbors search for hours in the snow between the road and sidewalk where her car was parked.

Later in the day with no luck she called around and found a metal detector to rent. After hours of searching and no luck she called me back later that day.

I told her that I would get there as soon as I could after I got off work, and that I had to go home first to get my metal detector .

I arrived at her place shortly after midnight, she showed me the area that she had searched and it was pretty easy to tell as the snow was packed down from everyone walking on it and searching for the ring.

After listening to where she believed the ring had flown off her finger and landed, that’s where I began my search. I think she was so frustrated from searching all day that she started to believe that the ring wasn’t there. It took me appoxatmently 3 minutes to find her ring, she was ecstatic!

I love my job!

White Rock Beach in February…

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Here’s a beach I searched just for fun the other day, no rings but keys and lots of change. Last year around this time I found a beautiful diamond ring for a lady that lost it off the pier into the water below.

This is a beach that our parents took us to every weekend in the summer time, when we were kids. What makes this beach so difficult to search is that it’s such a big beach and the tide goes out a very long way… Making it hard to concentrate on a specific area where lots of people gather.

Searching the area around the pier is where you will have a chance to find rings & coins. That being said get ready to dig many pennies as I believe people make a wish and toss it into the water.

As I was searching the beach on Feb.4th near the end of the day, I was blessed with this amazing sun set! I love the search for hidden & buried treasure and I treasure this world we live in…

Diamond in the snow…New Westminster

Contact: (778) 838-3463

Jan 21/09

Today I found a diamond egagement ring for a young lady who lost it on Dec.31/08

This took me over 5 hours and four visits till the ring showed up in a pile of snow on the side of a road.

After grid searching and cutting back the pile of snow I knew I’d have to come back when the snow had melted.

Today was the day as I searched an area on the side of the road where the snow was piled up and got a good signal… and there was the ring!

I drove to where the lady worked and walked into the store to give her the ring, she was very excited and very thankful. I love this job as it makes people feel good and me as well…

Lost my rings in the snow! Surrey BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

The picture above is of a lady who lost both of her rings… diamond engagement ring and diamond wedding band, while shoveling snow off her mothers driveway in late December.

After 5 minutes or so of shoveling the driveway this young lady took off her gloves because they were soaked, 20 minutes later she looked down and noticed both rings were gone.

It became dark and cold, with her car lights aiming at the piles of snow, she spent the next few hours that evening searching for her beloved wedding rings.
She didn’t want to go home and tell her husband that she lost her rings.

Soaking wet and cold she finally pack it in and later that night when she got home she broke the sad news to her husband…
The next day they would search together for the rings, after digging and searching in the cold snow without any luck they gave up the search.

The evening before, her sister had heard of the lost rings and researched the internet for someone that could help.
She typed in the words… ”lost my ring in the snow” and found the number for a treasure hunter in Vancouver who has a service called… ”Finders”
I received the call and was on my way to help find the rings, when I got there I listened to her story and I was very confident that I would recover them for her.
It wasn’t a hard search as it only took me 5 minutes or so to find the diamond engagement ring.

This was the big diamond ring and they were very happy that was found first! It was the wedding band that would be the tough one to find.

After a search of the area the first ring was found in, it took almost 1 hour to find the wedding band, I found it close to my truck on the side of the road.

It was a good thing she called as that ring would have been found by someone after the snow melted or it could have been caught in someone’s car or truck tire and driven away.
I love my Job!

Large White Gold Ring…Lost in Snow/Cypress Mountain

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

We just had a big dump of snow in mid December and the first call I get was from a young man who lost his big 8 mm white gold ring up at Cypress mountain.

He tells me that his call car got stuck in the snow and he got out and started to dig out his front tire.

All of a sudden he looked down to see his ring was no longer on his finger… Panic sets in as he spends the next couple of hours searching for his lost ring.

Cold and dark now he decides to go home and look to find a metal detector to rent. The next morning he drives back up the mountain with his rented metal detector to search the area.

As he arrives he notices that the side of the road where his car was stuck in the snow has now been plowed and the snow pushed up and over. This changes everything! He spends 3 hours searching but has to call it quits… No ring.

That day when he gets back home he gets on the computer and starts searching for a way to find his ring. Something he types in takes him to Finders and he reads the website and sends an S.O.S

I reply to his distress call…email… and we set up a time to meet and search for the ring the next morning.

I met up with the man and we take my truck to search for his ring. On the way up he tells me how sad he is as his wife is out of town and they were only married for 8 months and now he lost the ring.

I could tell how much the ring meant to him and how bad he wanted it back. I assured him that I’d do my best and if it was there, I’d find it.

We get to the spot and he shows me where his car got stuck, but now it’s been plowed and that changes everything.

I tell him to wait in the truck and stay warm as it was very cold out. I started my grid search and within 5 minutes I got a great signal about 30 feet from where he was parked. I start to dig and out pops a big white gold ring… I hold it up and he comes running and screaming…No way! You found it!

Every ring has a story attached to it and it has an amazing meaning for the person who lost it. I help continue that story by finding it for them…

I love my job!

African Gold & Silver Ring Lost In Vancouver Ocean

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

A few years back I received a call from a man who was very upset about losing his wedding band that was made for him while he and his wife to be were in Africa. He’d never be able to replace it as he couldn’t just fly to Africa…

It was a gold and silver ring and it meant the world to him, he told me the story on how they got engaged in Africa and how they wanted the rings to be from there. He told me that he had lost it at a beach in Vancouver called Spanish Banks, he was enjoying a hot summers day in the water when he felt the ring come off his finger.

Instead of panicking he make a mental note of the location , this would give me a good chance to find the ring when the tide was out the next day. I checked the low tidechart and it was a very early 5am low tide.

The young man wasn’t able to meet me that morning as he had to work, but I felt good because he gave me a very detailed description of the area he felt the ring was in. As I started my grid search and within 5 minutes I received a good signal, only an inch or so down was his ring!

I think you can tell how happy he was by the picture above when I delivered his ring to him that day…

I love my job!

Gold Celtic Ring…Found in a strawberry patch in Poco

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I received a call from a gentleman early last year in regards to a lost ring, he goes on to tell me that as he was walking up the steps of his friends place when the lady in front of him trips and falls backwards, he quickly throws his arms around her and they both fall to the ground.

He saves the lady but by doing so he brakes a few ribs and as he threw his arms around her, his ring goes flying off his finger into a strawberry patch. The next day in pain he rents a metal detector and searches for his custom white & yellow gold Celtic ring .

He tells me that he spent close to 6 hours searching for it with the metal detector, and he was on his hands and knees searching the dirt but gave up when he just couldn’t find it.

That night he went on the computer to find a treasure hunter, someone that could help him find his ring. He came across my service ”Finders” and called for help, I listened to his story and we met the next morning to search for his ring.

When I arrive at the location I see the area of the strawberry patch is very small, I think to myself this shouldn’t take long. I turn on my metal detector and begin my search, within seconds I receive a good signal, I bend down and move the dirt and out pops his ring… He was so happy!

He told me how frustrated he was after searching the day before and not finding it. He started to think that maybe it wasn’t lost there, how did you find it so fast he asked?

I told him that I’ve been doing this for years and that I have the best equipment for the search, also the metal detectors that people rent are not the greatest and if you’ve never used a metal detector before and if you don’t perform a grid search, it could be difficult to find.

I love my job!
