I received a text from a manager of a recreation complex that he was cleaning the snow off his car knocked his hand on something. Next thing he noticed his 2 month old cobalt wedding ring was missing!
I new right away that it was a colleague at my work place! I messaged him back if he was a COB employee 😂 after that exchanged he called me and we had a bit of a laugh over it!
I met him bright and early the next day. Unfortunately, the area still had snow and ice but the worse was that the area was rebar encased concrete parking pad/walking area. I had my work cut out for me. Gave it 4 1/2 hours, I lowered my sensitivity to 2 but only had my 15” coil with me. I called it quits and decided to go back the following day on my lunch hours.
Well, 4 minutes into my 2nd attempt with my small coil and decided to check the snow piles / iced areas that were still present. I had a solid 9/10!! As I kicked the snow away, out popped the iced up shinny cobalt wedding band!!! WHAHOOOO!!
Now to surprise Antony!!!
As I was heading back into the building to surprise Antony… he walked out to check on the status. I pretended that an emergency call came in for a street light pole down. Then I pulled out his beautiful shinny cobalt wedding band!! His reaction was priceless!! Antony was so grateful to receive his 2 month old wedding band back. He was dreading telling his telling his Wife!
Check out my YouTube video for this recovery;
Thank you Antony for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation as I don’t take the reward for finding the lost item! Instead, I have the clients pay-it-forward with a donation! He receives a tax receipt.
I will be riding a snowmobile in honour of his dear Friend Rachel who passed away from breast cancer far too young!
BREAST CANCER DISCRIMINATES NO ONE!! Early diagnosis saves lives!
Vanessa and Danny took their young Family for a drive to Toronto. Vanessa removed her engagement ring and wedding band and set it on the center consul inside the van. After applying hand cream, 10 minutes later she went to put her wedding rings back on and only saw her engagement ring and no wedding band.
After searching the vehicle, bags, and hand bag Husband Danny decided to pull apart the center consul as they noticed the ring likely slipped into a small crack. No luck.
Vanessa found my Ring Finders blog page and contacted me! I arrived after work and agreed with Vanessa that the ring was still inside the vehicle!
Danny assisted me with pulling apart the consul (again) and checking cracks in the plastic and upholstery with my Stanley scope. I then lifter the spare tire compartment behind the two front seats, checked across the seem and spotted the glorious glitter of the diamonds on the end of the scope camera!
Then of course…. Scheming with Danny and then surprising his Wife with the pink plastic kids ring to return her beautiful 18k white gold/Diamond wedding bands!!
Check out the video!!
YES, TEARS OF JOY!! PRICELESS!
Grateful for Vanessa & Danny’s generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation as part of my PAY-IT-FORWARD program instead of receiving a reward! They will receive a tax receipt for their donation 🙏🏻💖THANK YOU💖🙏🏻
Breast cancer has touched both their sides of their Families 🙏🏻 Also, an 🙏🏻AMEN🙏🏻 to our PRAYER to St Anthony for lost/stolen items!
Young couple was building a snowman ⛄️ in a school sports field yesterday and the young man took his gloves off at one point. He then realized after a while he lost his platinum wedding band in the snow. They purchased a metal detector but had no luck. They reached out to me late last night and I made arrangement to meet them at the area very early this morning with all respecting COVID-19
I started off by circular gridding the snowman. Then at one point I continued in a half moon grid as it was evident I wasn’t required to check down the slop. A half pass later, I heard the double tone with a 16 number on the Minelab Equinox 800! I cleared the snow away and saw the round ring shape in a portion of the snow I had just moved.
I then asked to do a video for the blog for good luck ….and here’s what happened!! Video link below
Another #PAYITFORWARD donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! In turn the clients receive a tax receipt for their donation!!
Thank you Aman & Harman for calling upon my services!! I love using my detecting skills/passion to help other on lost sentimental/valuable items!!
Last Saturday a young man named Shamir was out with his Friends Saturday evening in a Brampton Park calked “Black Forest South Park”.
Shamir was gifted his late Grandmother’s 24k Indian gold & diamond wedding band 10 years ago. He had the ring hanging from a thin 24k good chain.
While out with his Friends they were horsing around. He soon noticed his gold chain & ring were no longer around his neck and panic set in!
Shamir and his Friends started to hunt around for both of these precious items and spent 3-4 hours that night as well as a number of hours the next day. Shamir found the broken gold chain but did not find the precious heirloom ring.
Shanir did a google search and a number of pages came up… Kijiji, Marketplace, CarryAll Canada detector sales in Toronto. He called CarryAll and spoke to Shawn Hamilton who recommended me from “The Ring Finders” directory. Shamir called late Sunday for help.
I was able to meet up with Shamir today at lunch During my workday! We pulled more than the normal beer caps, pull tabs, along with a tonnie, a dime, an American penny, 2 keys, tons and tons of can slaw and an old broken watch… I noticed the Parks staff must have had the lawn cutting machines out so hope was fading!
My lunch hour was up and I decided to circle backto my work truck widening the grid pattern! I said one more target and BINGO there was a VDI “4” on my Equinox800 but a solid signal. I always dig the solid signals not paying attention to the numbers as Shamir wasn’t sure The karat of the ring…. so now to surprise him with a so called sad faced (lol) “wrap up” video!
Check out the video here;
Shamir was elated and was a bit in shock!! So happy to help him and his Mother to find this very sentimental heirloom wedding band!! 🌸💖🌸
A dear Friend and Co-worker Rockin’ Robbie sent me a message last night that his son little Robbie Jr. lost his prescription glasses playing in the snow. Robbie knew I was a detectorist registered with TheRingFindersDotCom and I was successful helping others!
I brought my metal detectors into work and we decided to meet up at lunch break!
Rockin’ Robbie said his son was playing on the pile of snow in the cul-de-sac as well as on the front yard of two homes. His pocket was undone and he thinks the glasses fell out.
I started grid searching with the ExcalibarII on the mini mountain. Then after a car moved in the front of one home I switched over to the Equinox 800. Within two minutes we found little Robbie Jr.’s glasses!! Unfortunately, they were damaged and we had figured the snow blower must have eaten them!! Lucky Robbie Jr. Still has his old pair!
I was happy to help my Friend & Co-worker but sad his Son’s glasses were damaged!
Here’s a video link:
I felt like a kid again standing on top of a snow mountain!!
I received a phone message this morning from a young man Satvir K. of Brampton Ontario.
I called Satvir back and spoke to him. He had shovelled the snow late last night and then proceeded to spread salt on his driveway with his bare hands. When he came into his home he noticed his sentimental wedding band recent made/purchased in India was missing! Satvir went back out to check the snow banks for 3 hours with no success.
Satvir googled lost ring and “The Ring Finders Dot Com’ page came up!
I immediately headed down after speaking with him. Within 5 minutes I located Satvir’s beautiful wedding band at the bottom of the driveway! He and his Wife were so thrilled and very happy!
Here is a video link to the ring recovery!!
I am grateful that another charity donation has come into ‘The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’ through my fundraising page! Satvir receives a tax donation receipt!
I received a phone call from Sam from Brampton, Ontario as he lost a very sentimental 925 silver ring recently.
Sam was walking his two dogs in a City of Brampton park. He ran with the dogs when the leashes crossed and came to a stop 40’ away! He realized he had lost his cell phone and his silver ring!
Sam luckily found his cell phone that night but not his ring. Sam then rented a metal detector which sounded like they gave him a locates machine. He then turned to YouTube to find one of my ring recovery videos but also a former member of “The Ring Finders” ‘Mark’ suggested he look up “The Ring Finders” to find a dedicated detectorist close to his location to aid in the search!
I advise Mark my fee and my “Pay-It-Forward” program that when I find his ring he is to in-turn make an on-line charity donation towards the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation”
We searched through the long knee deep grass with no success for 1 hour & 40 minutes. After 20 minutes I decided to switch my medium sized coil on the MINELAB Equinox 800 to the small coil! Continued to search and go over the initial search areas! No luck! I then went over the first area search but expanded towards the path and BOOM!!!! FOUND IT!! Saw the silver and started the video…. check it out!! He’s making a DONATION!!!
I am honoured to be finishing off 2018 with 13 successful clients and look forward to many recoveries and returns for 2019! I have met some really amazing people and raised over $1,300 going to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my #PayItForward campaign using my metal/scuba dive detecting hobby raising donations which is all my reward monies going to this wonderful charity!
I have completed a compilations of most of my successes in this YouTube video
I had a few unsuccessful attempts but will be heading back to those locations this summer to continue searching. I will continue to search for some of the owners of the other rings I have found during searches using social media. THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT “THE RING FINDERS DOT COM” !!!
I wish all “The Ring Finders” dedicated MEMBERS/TEAM MEMBERS a very successful 2019!! Stay safe and keep the S*M*I*L*E*S coming!!
