This all started when Lana gave me a call early August 8th and asked if i would help look for her wedding ring which she lost in the water almost a week and a half ago. I let her know that I will do my best and give it a shot. Knowing that Waikiki is a detectors favorite and its been over a week I needed to get down there ASAP and bring along with me help. So, I asked my dad if he would be willing to help and as always… Dad said yes and we were out to Waikiki that very morning. After 4 and 1/2 hours my dad and I came up short. NO ring! We went home knowing we gave it a good scan but there was some variables like tide and there were a lot of people in the water. So, The very next morning I get a gut feeling to go back and look. I drive back out to Waikiki and start looking again. After 45 minutes I get a faint sound and decide to dig it. I dig a big scoop of sand out and toss it on the sea floor and run my coil over the hole. BOOM I get a louder tone and it sounds like gold. A few more digs and I run my coil over the gaping hole in the ocean bed in which i don’t hear anything. So, I run my coil over the mounds of sand that has been removed and BOOM its there. I scoop and whats inside my scoop is a huge size 11 14K White gold with diamonds and a center 2 karat diamond in the middle. I knew I found her ring. As i am on my way back to the shoreline to rinse off I see Hawaii News Now setup by the showers and I ask them if the lady from yesterday is ok? The exchange words and then Billy V from hawaii news now asked the question… Did you find her ring? i said YES! He asked to see it and if it would be ok to let hawaii News Now run a short story about this event. I said yes and the lights went on and then came ACTION! We were able to call Lana and film the good news of HOPE and ALOHA. Well this was definitely GOD orchestrated and the saying is true… ALOHA IS ALIVE.
On November 28th 2017 Steve just flew into Hawaii on a business trip. While here on island he decided to head to the beach and take a swim. He noticed a few kids playing football in the water and decided to join them. After some time playing he looked down and realized, NO WEDDING RING. It fell off and he started to look everywhere. The kids that were playing also stopped and put on their swimming goggles to help find his platinum wedding ring. After hours of looking they came up short. Steve was contemplating as to how he would tell his wife that while on a business trip in Hawaii “I lost my wedding ring”! Well, thanks to a friend of mine on the beach who noticed the commotion, he went over to Steve and asked if everything is ok. Steve said “NO, I LOST MY WEDDING RING AND DON’T KNOW WHERE IT IS IN THE WATER”. That’s when I got the phone call. I was able to confirm with Steve that I would help him find his wedding ring and would be there in 30 minutes. I packed up the gear and my family as we were on our way to pick up our Christmas tree that evening. I arrived to the beach and noticed Steve walking waist deep in the ocean and still frantically looking. As I got closer, he looked up to me and yelled “KAI”? I responded ” I’m Ready” and started to gear up as my wife and son played on the beach. It was later in the evening and the sun was setting. After 40 minutes I finally GOT THAT TONE! I looked up to Steve who’s eye was full of depression and a lost of hope and he says “Whats this in the scoop?” At that time I heard a loud “HE FOUND IT”! I got the biggest hugs of ALOHA. In the scoop was Steve’s Platinum wedding ring. My Family and I were excited to see his joy and gratitude all over his face. Steve was very grateful that he thanked me so many times and I had to return with IT’S MY PLEASURE… Thank you Steve for believing in me and we both will have a very Merry Christmas.
Received a call from a very upset young lady Sharon (Shenshen) B. in Toronto, Ontario.
She had placed her diamond filled engagement ring on the kitchen counter. She proceeded to do some cleaning, take some garbage out and was very upset she could not locate her engagement ring. She felt it could have fallen in the cracks of her deck outside or in the garbage bag that she took to the garage. She had checked the kitchen….counters…cabinets, garbage, and floor….and no luck.
I started in the grass in the backyard, then underneath the deck. Within 25 minutes I heard a wonderful scream “I FOUND IT”!!!
I dusted off and met her at the back door. She happened to go into the living room just off the kitchen and there it was in the medium shag carpet!! It must have rolled off the counter, along the ceramic floor and ended up on the carpet.
A very happy ending for this bride-to-be and another donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’s “Royal Distributing Sun Run” motorcycle charity ride in June of 2017!! <3
Received a phone call late in the afternoon from Jarom & Hannah H of Brampton, Ontario.
Church Friends & Friends of recent ring finder client Boris T again recommended me to assist in helping find a lost engagement ring.
The Family had gathered to have Family photographs taken in a beautiful field/pond setting in Caledon, Ontario. Hannah discovered she had lost her engagement ring and was unsure where it came off. I met Jarom at the location and we retraced their steps from the car, down the road where they had walked to the field, the ditch and a large area of the field. NO LUCK. …..2nd attempt, again NO LUCK.
I advised that I could pop over to their home in Brampton after work.
I was very happy to receive a message the THE FING WAS FOUND at home….in the laundry basket!!!
Wonderful news!! One very happy wife….and husband 🙂
Sometimes we don’t always find it….because it isn’t there. GREAT ENDING and a very lovely couple and Daughter xo
