Good Evening everyone,

It’s been a while since i’ve posted. Working evening shifts and having no searches in the last months, until last week on the 12th of May. Nemo was enjoying the beautiful day to do yard work on the 6th of May, he went to the garden to shake some trees to rid of dead leaves and needles. While going from tree to tree he noticed at the end he had lost his ring, he frantically searched but to know avail. While doing some searching on google he came across the ring finders and my blog, a phone call was made and an appointment was made. I searched the compost area where leaves and debris from the yard cleaning were thrown into some bushes. Nothing was found. I continued my search along the wall of the house where weeds were pulled and then made my way towards the trees which were shook. Going from tree to tree (around 6 in total), nothing beeped, I noticed I was on the wrong program, I immediately changed it, went to my first tree, and there it was that familiar ring tone in my ears, bent down pinpointed it and there she was that glimmer of gold. Nemo and Sarah were extremely happy, and so was I. If you know of anyone who lost a ring, bracelet, chain, give me a call The Ring Finder is there and will help you fing whatever that was lost. Call me at 819-332-3116 and ask for Stephane. Have a great evening everyone !  I use a White’s XLT for my ring searches please visit for great detectors and accessories.

Bonsoir à tous,

Il a déjà un moment que j’ai publié sur mon blogue du au fait que je n’ai pas des heures régulières à mon travail en plus du manque de demande de recherches dans les derniers mois. Ma dernière demande est venue le 6 mai dernier de la part de Nemo qui a profité de la belle journée pour faire du jardinage. C’est en secouant des arbres pour débarrasser des feuilles mortes et les aiguilles qu’il aurait perdu sa bague. Désespéré, il a cherché mais sans succès. En effectuant quelques recherches sur google, il est tombé sur mon blogue. Un appel et le rendez-vous était fixé. J’ai cherché là où les feuilles et les débris avaient été jetés. Sans succès. J’ai continué mes recherches le long du mur de la maison où les mauvaix herbes ont été retirés du sol, puis je me suis dirigé vers les arbres en question. En effectuant ma recherche, j’ai remarqué que j’étais sur le mauvais programme.  Une fois le bon programme entré, je suis allé à mon premier arbre, et c’est là que la sonnerie familiere à mes oreilles se fut entendre. En me penchant, je me suis apperçu de la lueur d’or. Nemo et Sarah étaient très heureux et soulagés.

Si vous connaissez quelqu’un qui a perdu une bague, bracelet, chaîne, ou tous autres objets, contactez-moi Stéphane Philippe Le Finder Ring de la grande région de Gatineau-Ottawa. Gagnant du chercheur de l’année 2010 du site Internet The Ring Finders. Je suis là pour vous aider à retrouver votre objet sentimental. Appelez-moi au 819-332-3116 et demandez Stéphane.

Words cannot express how happy I am to be back online. Working late shifts, and having slow weeks and months to  search for rings were in the schedule including having a hard drive completely damaged which took a very long time to retrieve all of my information, and personal files. So here I am up and running ! Looking forward to sharing my finds and searches. Have a great day everyone !

Kind Regards,


Lost platinum wedding ring recovered! Fort Meade, Maryland.

from Baltimore (Maryland, United States)
Contact: 1-410-215-7826

This is my 2nd recovery in 2011 so far….and I’m 2 for 2! I’ll let Jeff P. tell the story. Thanks for checking out my page!

In May 2011, my platinum wedding band came off during a soccer game. I knew I had it on at the beginning of the game and realized midway through the second half that it had come off. I thought back and suspected that it flew off during a throwin, but had no idea where on the field it had fallen. The field is a very large area, approx.100×75, so I thought it was a lost cause.
After the game, I went home and began researching metal detectors with the intention of renting one and searching for it myself. I was surprised to find the community and decided to contact Jim Wagner. Jim returned my email and within 2 hours, we were out on the field looking for the ring. After only 40 minutes of searching, Jim found my ring! What a feeling of relief! My wife was out there with us and she was thrilled. Thanks, Jim!

Jeff P.

Yours truly and a VERY happy Jeff P!


Lost Diamond Ring found in Salmon Arm

from Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-707-0618

On a sunny day in Salmon Arm BC, Mike & Kelly Wilson were taking a stroll along the walkway next to the river. As they stopped and leaned on the rail to take in the scenery, Kelly was twisting the ring on her finger when suddenly it slipped off her finger falling onto the rocks and bush below. No problem said Mike, I saw it bounce & we will walk down and pick it up. Well after a few hours of searching they could not locate the ring.The next day Mike went to the local store and purchased a metal detector to assist them with the search, with no success they considered making an insurance claim. Mike thinking that someone more proficient with a metal detector may be able to help them, found me on the internet and asked if I would be willing to assist them. I told him I would be only too happy to help him out. After a two hour drive to Salmon Arm from Kelowna, Kelly showed me the location that she was standing on the walkway, I procceded to search the area and removed various pieces of foil and bottle caps., when after a few minutes I got a good signal around some roots in the long grass. Unable to visually see the target, I probed around with my finger, I felt the shank of the ring and said that I thought I had found something,  much to Kelly`s excitement. I removed the ring and was shocked to see a large 14 karat yellow gold ring with 15 large diamonds that Mike had valued at over $15,000.  Kelly was now so excited she gave hugs all around and dashed off to show all her friends. Mike was more than happy to give me a large reward. Plus a feather in the cap for the “Ringfinders”

Lost Dental Retainer Returned.

from Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-707-0618

My strangest Find on the Beach in Kelowna has to a youths Dental retainer. The retainer had a name embossed inside the resin. I checked the names in the local phone book, and started calling. The very first name I called I told them who I was an why I was calling. The lady on the other end was so excited and couldnt believe her luck. Her sons retainer was placed on the beach towel while he went for a swim. When leaving the beach, they forgot about the retainer and just grabbed the towel. They went back later and searched but could not find it. The following morning was when I detected the beach and found the unusual item. They tell me the wires in the retainers are platinum, sounds expensive to replace. Another happy customer.

Lost White Gold Ring at Cocoa Beach, Florida….FOUND!!

from Sanford (Florida, United States)
Contact: 1-321-363-6029

Early Monday morning I received an e-mail from Chris stating that his girlfriend had lost a small gold ring at Cocoa Beach late Sunday afternoon. As they were leaving the beach they realized their bag had a hole in it and the ring had slipped out. They spent an hour looking in the sand but were not able to find the ring. That night Chris went online to look for information on recovering lost jewelery and came across my name at theringfinders web site.

Later Monday morning I was able to talk to Chris and we set up a time to meet up half way and drive to the exact location. It was an absolutely beautiful spring day in the low 80’s with a cool breeze coming off the pristine Atlantic Ocean!

Chris showed me right where they had put their bag and the two paths on which they had walked to and from the car. (He also had lost a single car key that later on as we were searching the sand Chris was able to spot by eye and we were only 15 minutes into the search!)

I found the usual junk items in the sand–bottle caps and a few pull tabs along with a cool little hot wheels car–but no ring! I then decided to widen my search along one of the path ways and got a small signal that was barely audible and as I kicked the sand away to reveal the item— there was a small silver part of a band showing in the sand!!

It was such a thrill to be able to hand Chris his girlfriend’s precious ring and to see the joy it brought him!

And now what was lost has been found!!

Lost something?

Lost Wedding Band in Okanagan Lake

from Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: 1-250-707-0618

Joe had checked the dive shops for assistance, but no one could help him. As President of the Kelowna Metal Detectors, Joe contacted me for help, I responded to Joe and met him at his campsite on Okanagan Lake where he showed me approximately where the ring was lost as he was throwing a ball with the kids. I told him I would return the next day with my detecting gear and attempt to find the ring. The next morning at 7am I entered the water and proceeded to grid the area. It soon became apparent that the that the soft muddy bottom was heavily littered with metal garbage. After 4 hrs I still had not located the ring, I decided that I would quit for the day and return with Joe  for the specific lost location. It was 3 days later when we returned with Joe feeling badly all week. I entered the water to once again continue the search. After another 2 hours of sifting through the many pieces of junk metal, I peered down into my scoop after retrieving a solid signal and there it was…..a mans white gold ring surounded by 24 diamonds! I was out in the water and let out a loud “yahoo” but Joe was fast asleep on the beach. Hurridlay I went ashore and woke him up with the good news and we both danced around with delight. On the way home Joe stopped in at the local store and as he entered the store the background music being played was his wedding music. How appropriate it brought tears to Joe`s eyes.

Lost Ring, Found at Joe Rich

David was operating an excavator loading a dump truck on a construction site. He stepped off the excavator to move the truck and to shake his hands of mud and dirt. During this process, he heard a ping and noticed that his wedding band was missing. He searched but was unable to locate it. He moved the dump truck and excavator and called his workmate over to assist him. The workmate went home for a metal detector, and together they searched the site for a few hours but were still not able to find the ring. He returned in the evening with his wife, and they both did a visual search of the site without finding it.

At 8:30 the next morning, he phoned the Kelowna Metal Detectors Club contact number and asked for assistance. I arrived at the site at 9:15 a.m., and asked David to show me exactly where and what happened. The location he showed me had been traveled over with the dump truck and was a muddy mess. He had pretty well given up on finding the ring and expected it to finish up in the landfill on the housing site. He explained that he had been married only 5 weeks and that the ring was a band of yellow gold and a band of white gold that his wife insisted he wear to work. We moved the dump truck, and I set up my Detector and started to work in a grid system. On the second pass, I got a strong signal in 6 inches of oozing mud. Reaching down I felt and recovered the metal rings. I walked over to the dump truck, and David asked me what the problem was. I told him that I had finished, and he responded, “No, don’t quit already!” I showed him the band, and he was ecstatic!
