Metal Detecting Vancouver Beach for Hong Kong Gold Wedding Band

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Last week I received a call from the Lifeguards at Spanish Banks Beach in Vancouver, they had a young couple from Hong Kong that couldn’t speak very good English and needed my Ring Finders Service.

I jumped into my car and headed to the beach to meet and help them find what they had lost. When I arrived and met Eugene and his wife I thought I was looking for her lost ring but after talking a while I figured out it was his 24k yellow gold wedding band.

He explains that he was swimming and on the second stroke not far from shore he felt the ring come off his finger. The only problem was both Eugene and his wife wasn’t 100% sure where he was in the water…This makes the search hard and I spent close to 3 hours in chest deep water doing a grid search, they both felt it was from the spot they showed me and west down the beach. I didn’t find the ring that evening and I couldn’t return until the next weekend at low tide.

When I arrived at the beach on the following Saturday I started my grid search of the same area but this time the tide was out and the grid search was much easier!
I searched in the rain and extend my grid west down the beach and no ring!

I wasn’t sure if Eugene and his wife might have came back the next day and found the ring, I emailed him twice but never heard back. This plays in the back of your mind when you can’t find what you’re looking for…

My instinctskicked in and I went against the flow and headed in the opposite direction and 30 + yards from my start point I found his beautiful 24k gold wedding band! This was no where near where they showed me but my thoughts are there is a ring out there…Find it!

I spotted the ring before my metal detector went over it and it was only half buried into the sand, the sand is very hard packed in this area of the beach and after 6 days of high & low tides it was still visible to the eye.

What I thought was about 1 1/2 hours of searching turned out to be 3 hours, in total for the two searches it took me close to 5 1/2 hours to find this ring…

I love my job!

Ring Testimonial…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I lost my wedding band over a month ago now and I was quite disappointed to say the least. I’ve never taken my ring off except for a few hours to do odd chores around the house for the last 10 years. After losing the ring, it felt like I lost a part of me. So I started scouring “lost and found” ads in the paper and craigslist hoping to find my ring. And this is how I found Chris Turner, on Craigslist, offering his service to find lost jewelry for people. So I contacted Chris, told him where, when and how I lost it. He said he’ll try to look for it but there won’t be any guarantee. I resigned to the fact that he won’t find it since it’s been lost in the lake for at least 3 weeks after calling him. But lo and behold, one beautiful Saturday morning he gives me a call to let me know he found it!!!! They say miracles don’t happen but it did, Chris happened. I want to take this opportunity to say thanks to you again buddy. Big Thanks!!!



Metal Detecting Lake Gold in Golden Ears Park

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Last week I received an email from Jason and he told me the story about his lost ring in Alouette lake in Maple Ridge. I was excited to search for the ring until he told me it was lost for over a month.

I knew this would be a difficult search due to the time the ring was lost and because lots of people search lakes. I was going to meet up on Saturday so Jason could show me the exact location but he had to work that day.

I had a few searches on Sunday so I told him that I’d go on Saturday and take a look. We discussed the search area and Jason gave me a good idea of the area it could be lost in, so off I went.

I got there early morning and I was surprised to see how big the lake was! I started my grid search and I was closing in on 4 hours and no ring.

I expanded my search to deeper water and just a few minutes past the 4 hour mark I received a good signal and in my sand scoop was a white gold ring! Was it his? He told me that the ring had his name and his wife’s name and the date they got married. I looked in the inside of the band and I saw writing and the name ”Jason”

I was so excited that I found the ring! In this big lake finding a small ring is like finding a needle in a haystack.

I called Jason and he was delighted! We met the next day and he got his ring back…It was great meeting you and your family Jason!

Check out the video below…

I love my job!

Metal Detecting Spanish Banks/Volley Ball Court Gold

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I just got home from a four hour water search in a lake in Maple Ridge where I found a lost wedding band for a young man.
I didn’t have breakfast so I made some lunch and fell a sleep soon after.

A few hours later a wake up to a phone call from a man named Scott who lost his wedding band at the volleyball court at Spanish Banks Beach.He got my number from the life guards, I listened to his story and felt it would take no time to find the ring as he had a small area for me to search because he saw the ring fly off his finger into the sand.

I jumped into my car and headed out, I met Scott and he showed me the area and no sooner did I turn on my metal detector… I found his ring!

Scott told me the story about how his mother gave him her fathers wedding band that was sitting in a drawer for 50 plus years… What a sad story but a happy ending!

I love my job!

Golf Course Gold/South Vancouver/Lost… Gold Wedding Band… Reward!!!!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Today I received an email from a young man who lost his wedding band at Fraser View Golf Course in South Vancouver…Here is his email…
I lost my gold wedding band on Aug 18th at Fraser View Golf course. I am sure that I had it because I was late and still wearing it on the first tee…. my mistake, I never wear it when I play and normally keep it in my car. After the round, I could not find my ring. it is a basic gold band with my wedding date engraved in it (08-31-2003). As you can see my wedding anniversary is coming up and the ring means a lot to me.
I am hoping you can help, in fact I can come out with you to retrace
my steps.

thanks again,


Well we retraced his tracks and eliminated the most likely possibilities and our thoughts are that it could be any where from the first tee to the last. Its a needle in a golf course sorta speak but there is a chance that someone can find it during their walk around the course.

Will is offering a reward if you find it and it means a lot to him, so please keep an eye out for the ring.

It was nice meeting you Will and don’t give up hope as there are lots of great people out there that might find and return your ring!

Thanks so much for the gift certificates to the Cannery! Very kind of you!!

I love my job!

Lost Diamond Earring/Spanish Banks/$200 Reward

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call to find a lost diamond earring this morning and the lady told me it had been lost for over 3 weeks at a dog beach in Vancouver, Spanish Banks. She went into the Ocean to cool down and she felt the earring come off…

Her and her husband came back the next day and searched for hours but no luck, I also had no luck as earrings are the single hardest piece of jewellery to find as there is so little gold on the post. If this was lost in a back yard I’d have a great chance in locating he earring.

The time frame would have something to do with it but most detectors will not get a signal on a solitaire diamond earring… Very little weight which would mean that it could have moved down the beach with the tide over the last 3 weeks.

It’s a half karat Diamond Earring exactly like the one in the picture above…$200 Reward if you find and return it to Liz… Contact me and I will put you in touch with the owner who would be extremely thankful to have it back!

I will go back a do a grid search of the area just encase I might get lucky!

Can’t find them all…I love my job!
