Backyard Gold… Lost Engagement Ring in Coquitlam BC

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Today I received a call from a young lady who lost her engagement ring in her backyard two weeks ago. After reading her email then talking to her on the phone I realized I knew this person! She works in the film industry and we haven’t talk for very long time so it was nice to connect and help her find her lost wedding ring.



When I arrived I was promptly greeted and shown the area where she believed the ring was lost.  I asked if she could tell me what the ring meant to her and what the story was that made the ring so special.

She told me that her fiancé proposed to her in Mexico and gave her this temporary ring until they got home where she could have one designed.

Even though she had a beautiful ring designed, one that she wears now, I could tell that the ring she had lost meant a lot to her as it was the ring he proposed to her with.

I set up my equipment and started to go to work, unfortunately her property has powerlines very close to the search area. Thankfully with the new modern technology I was able to cancel out most of the interference from above and zero in on her lost ring.




This search took me 15 minutes, I was very happy to get the signal and find her lost engagement ring.

I absolutely love my job!  Thank you for the very kind reward I really appreciate it!

15% goes to Children’s Hospital…Thank you!

Found…100 Year Old Prescription Glasses

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
100 Years Old

100 Years Old


Most of the time I’d get called out to search for a lost ring, but on this day ,on my own time, I went to English Bay Beach just after the Polar Bear Swim to search the low tide…January 1, 2013.

On this nice but cold evening when the tide went out it exposed many pairs of prescription glasses, in total 15 pairs were found that evening. One in particular was a pair of spectacles that I found buried completely in the sand. Because of the amount of  prescription glasses that were being found I took my time digging this signal, as I reached into the hole I pulled out  a cool looking pair of spectacles. I have to say my first thought was ”Harry Potter”… I carefully wrapped it up in a cloth and put it in a safe pocket and resume my hunting.

When I got home that evening I posted on craigslist that I found prescription glasses along with a few other things I found at the Polar Bear Swim at English Bay Beach. I only received one reply from someone asking about a pair of Ray-Ban glasses (Aviators) but I did not find those, it took almost 3 weeks before I got a reply from a young man asking if I found a pair spectacles.

I took a picture with my iPhone and sent him the photo of the glasses and I received an email immediately… Those are the ones!!!

I have to admit it’s the first time I experienced how much it meant to to that person to have their prescription glasses found. I didn’t realize what the story was that came with the glasses until I talk with him. You see these were not ordinary prescription glasses, these glasses were from his great grandfather, over 100 years old! How can you ever replace a family heirloom like that? That’s why I love what I do! I love helping people and given them a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever!




Here’s what he put on The Ring Finders Face Book page…

“Thanks to Chris Turner and The Ring Finders recovered my Norwegian great grandfathers old pair of glasses that I lost during this years Polar Bear Swim in Vancouver, BC. Chris found them the same day and posted them under the lost and found section on Craigslist. And although it took me 20 days to even think that someone would be kind enough to put it on Craigslist, Chris convinced me that there still is some good in this world. These 100 year old glasses gets to continue their story and continue being a family heirloom.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
