Had a Facebook message from a great Friend Tracy A from Hillsburgh, Ontario. Ivan G, a fellow member of the Church was cleaning up the flower boxes in the front of the Church. Ivan arrived home to notice his wedding band was missing. This was his replacement wedding band after loosing a diamond filled wedding band at a golf course over 5 years ago.
I arrived the next evening with Tracy. Tracy filled me in on the details. This was a 2′ wide by 20′ to 25′ length flower box. The areas below the flower planter boxes was 2′ by 6′ roughly. This was a job for my GARRETT ‘CARROT’ PIN POINTER. So “grinding’ with the pin pointer was the plan of action!
I decided to do a live recovery video on “Facebook Live”. We checked the one side below the flower boxes….nothing. Moved over to the other side…I had to remove some of the “Erin Fall Fair” display. The metal chair the (stuffed) gentle was sitting on was in the way. Within 5 minutes I was very happy to find the massive SIZE 15 10k Platinum/Gold ring!! What a WHOOPER OF A RING!! Largest one for me to find!
We went into speak to the Minister. We decided not to keep Ivan in suspense…so Tracy called and left a message that his wedding ring will be waiting for him at Sunday Church.
I had a returned Ivan’s call and offered to help locate the beloved lost Ring #1!! Ivan was very grateful and is very kind in offering a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run that I will be riding my snowmobile Feb 2017! This wonderful charity provide financial assistance to patients fighting this terrible disease!! “PAYING IT FORWARD”…rocks!! Here is a link to my “Metal Detecting for Charity” FB page <3 https://www.facebook.com/metaldetectingforcharity/
He said “I never knew there was such an organization of “The Ring Finders”!! I filled him in on the global directory of excellent Detectorists!!
I am looking forward to assisting in finding Ivan’s 1st lost wedding band at a Golf course in the near future!! Stay tuned….
I got an email asking if I could help find a lost pendent the other day so I replied yes I can…We later take on the phone and arranged a time and place to search for the lost diamond pendant.
I showed up to a lovely neighbourhood and met the husband (Howard) of the lady who lost the pendant. He showed me the location and it wasn’t big but had its challenges due to the beautiful flowers and plants in the garden.
When this happens I use the detector in the area but not close to the plants then I come in with the pin pointer to search around the plants and bingo! There it was under a plant in only 1 inch or so in the earth. I love this job because its the best job in the world to be able to find peoples lost smiles!
I asked how he found me and he said while he was looking for a way to search for the ring himself online he found TheRingFinders Directory and thought he’d give it a try.

It happens a lot…You’re out gardening in your back yard and after a long day working on your garden you come to realize that your wedding band or engagement ring is missing! It’s truly a horrible feeling! Where do you start looking? It could be buried in the garden or in a bag of leafs or it went over the fence when you threw away the weeds.
I have found many wedding bands and engagement rings over the years for people and the most important thing to do is… Don’t Throw Away the Bags of Yard Trimmings! That is the big mistake because that’s where I find lots of the ring!
The next thing to do is go to… www.TheRingFinders.com and find a metal detecting specialist in your area that can help you find what you thought was lost forever…
Today I had a search for a man’s diamond wedding band that was lost in the garden some where on his property.
I received a call early last week from a lady who told me the story about how her husband had lost his ring while he was outside gardening.
I met up with the couple this morning and Umberto showed me the area where he thought the ring could be lost in and I started my search.
Around the side of the house he had a little garlic garden and he showed me the area he sifted the dirt to search for his ring. I searched that area and received a good signal and found Umberto’s diamond ring within 5 minutes.
I could see the ring as I moved the dirt and I turned on my flip video and started to record… He didn’t what me to tell his wife, he wanted to act as if we didn’t find it.
We went into his house and pretended that we couldn’t find the ring, she was sad and wanted me to check some other areas, Umberto then held up his hand and showed her the ring…She was so excited! She told me that she couldn’t afford another ring for her husband and that ring was very special as it was his wedding band, and you can’t replace that with a new one.
We had an espresso and talked for a while, such a lovely couple!
