Lost Gold Pendent Found in North Vancouver…

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

I got a call from a young man who lost a gold pendent, he told me that it was given to him by his father who was a fireman for 25 years and wore this pendent in over a 1000 calls. It was a gold firefighters helmet with the truck number inscribed on the front of the helmet and two dates on the underside. His father gave him the pendent when he retired and his son started in the same Fire Department and truck the day his father retired.

Needless to say it was very important to find this pendent and continue the story so one day his son could have it and know the history of these two great men that put their lives on the line to help others. So we discuss the search area and i start to detect and I’m getting nails and not much else. he shows me that he made a sifter and was checking for the ring but gave up. He dumped the sifter and guess what…It was in the dirt from the sifter! It’s funny where these irreplaceable items show up!

He lost his wedding band 60 years ago Hickory North Carolina.

from Greenville County (South Carolina, United States)
Contact: 1-864-905-0297

Received an email a couple weeks ago from Susan about her dad’s wedding band that he had lost in November of 1953 soon after marrying the love of his life. Susan went on to tell me that her dad was sowing grass seed in the front yard, and after going inside to take a shower he noticed the ring was missing. Susan’s dad is now in his mid-80s and has a great memory of what he did that day. Losing his ring weighed on his mind for all these years and he mentioned it again several months back. Susan’s parent’s wedding anniversary was yesterday, Oct 18, and she would have loved to give her dad his original wedding band back on his anniversary but several things stood in the way. First, she needed permission from the new owner of the house where her parents lived in ’53, and secondly, to find someone that would be willing to find the ring for her.  Where can you find someone like that? Susan said her son emailed her a story of a man that found an engagement ring for a lady that had lost her ring gardening  that was picked up by media and a story was run. Who was that man? Chris Turner is his name. He’s the original ring finder owner of THERINGFINDERS.COM a metal detecting service that is nation wide and is in 19 countries and based in BC Canada. Susan called Chris and he had her contact several members in the surrounding states in which she lived. I responded to her email and a date was set for the 18th for the search. I drove the 2 hours to Hickory North Carolina from Greenville South Carolina and met Susan for the search. I looked at some old photos that Susan brought for me to aid in my search. Susan and her parents had moved from the house in 1959 and in 1960 the city widened the road and took some of the front yard for the road. Although the house hasn’t changed, the landscape has, trees, bushes, roadway, and some loads of gravel in the driveway. I started my search and received many targets. I dug everything in the gold signal range. I spent around 4 1/2 hours in my search.  I searched with my Whites V3i metal detector but had no luck. Susan brought her dad out to give us more info on what was done and if he could aid in our search. I used his existing wedding band (exact copy of the original) to get the benchmark on what the signal would be and searched again, but no luck. I was very disappointed in not finding the ring. I can only hope I have a daughter like Susan that would do the same for me. As a ring finder you can only find what is there and I’m glad I can give some closure to Susan and her dad. I was honored to be asked to find this ring and wished for a happier outcome. Even though we didn’t find this ring it still is an incredible love story between a daughter and her dad and having no regrets and peace of mind.

Thanks Susan for the chance to be part of this story.

How To Find A Lost Ring At Spanish Banks Dog Park, Vancouver

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

Today I went out on a ring search at Spanish Banks dog park in Vancouver. I talked to Patrick over the phone and he gave me the details in regards to where he believed the ring was lost and how to get there. He sent me a google earth picture of the location and that sure helped! But that being said you still have to ask the question or you could be out by a little and that’s all it takes when you’re looking for something so small.He told me that I was looking for a white gold ring with six small diamonds that he lost while throwing a ball for his dog. He told me soon after he realized his ring came off the whole group of people he was with doing exercises held hands and formed a long line (15 people across) and did a grid search of the area…trying to eyeball the ring. Unfortunately the ring was not found so Patrick went home and found a place to rent a metal detector and came back and searched for five hours with no luck…A little about metal detector rentals…Yes, you can rent a metal detector but in most cases if you’ve never used one it may be a little overwhelming with all the signals that you are getting. You’re renting a very inexpensive metal detector that is going to be beeping every foot or so.That’s why there’s ”The Ring Finders”…A metal detecting service with metal detecting experts using the best equipment to find what you thought was lost forever.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love hearing the stories of about the rings I find and how much it meant to the person to have it found, and all so about the person that gave them the ring and how happy they will be when they get the good news. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI found the ring on my 3rd grid line in about 15 minutes! I never get tired of finding peoples lost rings and seeing the smiles it brings to a person when you hand it back to them. I have personally found over 300 lost rings for people and I look forward to the next 1000!Thanks for reading my blogs! I love my job!If you have lost something cal me ASAP!Best Regards, Chris Turner/CEO/The Ring FindersWatch Video of the search below…

Lost Diamond Wedding Ring in Vancouver Garden…Found!

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

One week ago I received a call from a young lady explaining to me that her mother may have lost her diamond engagement ring in her garden. After talking for a few minutes she said that she wasn’t clear if her mother lost the ring in the garden or if it was lost in her house.I told her that I wouldn’t be able to make it until the weekend, five days later, so that if her mother could check the house good and cannot find it I would come to search the yard on the weekend.Well come Thursday I received a call that they didn’t find the ring in the house and that they needed my service, so we arranged a meeting for 11 AM on Saturday morning.When I arrived I met a very lovely lady named Wendy who told me why she thought the ring could be lost in her backyard. She goes on to tell me that she was doing some yard work and watering the plants and pulling out some bushes and branches which is a very good way to lose a ring.This diamond engagement ring was very special to Wendy because she lost her husband last year as you can imagine the ring meant the world to her. She told me that ring was given to her in 1967 when her husband, boyfriend at the time proposed to her. She remembered that her husband was making payments on the ring… $10 a week and she had the payment sheet showing all the payments he made until it was paid off.I have to tell you I was really praying that I would find this ring for her, so I began my search in the area in the backyard that she showed me where she was pulling branches and watering plants. Wendy had to go in the house to get a battery for her hearing aid and within minutes I had found the ring!  I was so excited and couldn’t wait to show her what I’d found. When Wendy came back outside I showed her her ring and she was so happy! A I have the best job in the in the world! I get to make people smile…Every ring has a story and that story ends when the ring is lost…What I do is get to help continue that story by find that lost ring…This story was a love story about a lady who loved her husband very much and will miss him dearly.Thanks for reading my blogs!If you have lost something and need it found…Call me ASAPYou can watch the video of the search below.

Missing platinum wedding band found for newlyweds in Gulf near Sanibel Island, FL

from Sanibel Island (Florida, United States)

December 8, 2012

While shelling in the cool and refreshing waters of the Gulf of Mexico off of Sanibel, this newly married couple realized that the husband’s platinum wedding band had gone missing. The couple was extremely distraught as the band holds much sentimental value to them.

After searching extensively on their own, the couple gave me a call the next morning.  Within a few hours of the call, my wife and I were each in the water detecting.  Another few hours had passed with no success of finding the missing ring–we were all very discouraged.  After consulting with the couple again as to the exact area where they thought the ring went missing, my wife and I decided to split up again and return to the water to search.


After several minutes–SUCCESS!   The ring was found a few yards outside the search area.  My wife and I reunited the couple with the ring.  Hugs, tears and many thank you’s were exchanged and the couple can now rest easy knowing the missing ring is back on the husband’s finger where it belongs.


Brain Surgeon Buries Engagement Ring

This is a story about a guy madly in love with the woman of his dreams!

Like any guy madly in love, all that mattered was that she said YES!

Like any guy madly in love, all that mattered was that she said YES!

And, like any guy head over heels, I’m sure Steve wanted his proposal to Mary to be as sweet and amazing as could be… one of their happiest days ever.

They’d flown in from Denver for a romantic getaway on a beautiful beach in paradise.

And, as the sun was setting over the water, he was about to ask her to be with him forever!

If all had gone as planned, having her “find” the ring in the sand, would have been a wonderful memory! But, when it came to “finding the ring”, the ring could not be found. Steve and a dozen hotel staff and beach goers searched the beach for hours, in the rain, but had no luck.

Then, Mary got online looking for someone with a metal detector and found our listing in the directory on

Since it was already getting late, as soon as I got the call, I headed right over from the job I was on… didn’t even stop to change. When I got to the beach, I had them go over things with me and got right to work. I pushed my center stake into the sandbar where they thought the ring was lost and spiraled my search pattern out from there.

Here's what it's all about! Helping them find that ring!

Here's what it's all about! Helping them find that ring!



I found the ring after about twenty minutes of searching… 20 feet away.

When I looked up at them with the I-FOUND-IT smile on my face, they ran over to where I stood with their ring in hand. After a few seconds of cheers and hugs, Steve turned to Mary, dropped down to one knee, right there in the surf, and asked her to marry him. Talk about being able to “feel the love”! It was a powerful moment that I’ll never forget.

Dr. Steve’s patients are so fortunate to have found a skilled brain surgeon that also has a heart of gold!





Lost Platinum Wedding Band at English Bay Beach, Vancouver…Found

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



I helped David find his Platinum wedding band that he lost in the ocean 3 days before we made contact. He told me the story that just before they left the beach for home he was washing the sand off his daughter when he felt the ring come off his finger and into the water.

He spent the next 45 minutes searching for his wedding ring in the not so warm water but so often the end result is the sand wins! That’s only temporary as ”The Ring Finders” are there to help!



If David could put me in the area I will find it, if someone hasn’t beat me to it.

Well after searching the first area just 2 hours before dark we didn’t  have any luck. David started to think that he put me in the wrong location after his wife sent him a picture of him in the water. I decided to return the next morning for low tide and search the new area…



It took 2 hours and I found the ring! I love a good hunt! And I love my job!

Thanks for reading my blog.

Lost Platinum Diamond Ring in East Vancouver…Found!

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











Today I had a search for a platinum diamond engagement ring that was lost on Meaghan property along the walk way beside her house. Meaghan had searched for a week on and off in the area that the ring came out of her pocket, but just couldn’t find it.

That’s what prompted her to search the internet and see if there was someone that could help her find her engagement ring of 5 years, finding ”The Ring Finders” was exactly what she had hoped for!

I received the call and we set up a day to come out and find the ring, a week later I was there to check out the search area. Looking it over, I knew I’d be finding this ring without my detector.

After moving  a dozen concrete blocks that were a part of the walk way and a couple of long pipes and boards and about 30 minutes…There it was under a concrete block closes to the house…


What a beautiful ring! I was so happy that it showed itself and its now back where it belongs. Thank you for reading my blogs and until the next search…


I love my job!
