I received a call from Justine around 1:56 pm asking if it was possible for me to come out and find her 10ct white gold friendship ring that she had lost this morning, along the side walk in Bearspaw Park. We were in the midst of a heavy snow storm with about 4 inches of snow. She told me her and her boyfriend had searched in the snow for about three hours with no luck. She turned to the internet and found theringfinders.com and called me.
I told her I would be down in 45 minutes, met up with Justine, and together we went over to the park where she showed me approximately where the ring had flown off her finger. It took me approximately 45 minutes to locate her ring. She was a very happy young lady when I found it as the ring was of sentimental value to her.
Received a call yesterday afternoon from Matt in regards to finding his ring which was lost last November after his girlfriends chucked it over the fence into somebody’s back yard after having a disagreement, I asked Matt why it took him this long to try and find his ring he said since it had snowed that day his ring would be buried and it would be safe there until spring, yesterday he was searching on the internet and found me and the rest is history.
Matt told me he had permission from the owner to look for his ring. Made arrangement to meet this morning at the lactation, arrived in the back yard where there was around two feet of snow lucky for me the yard size was only 33’ x 50’ with a deck and fenced; Matt told me it was a heavy gold ring with his initials. Searched the area for about 30 minutes with no luck, then bingo ring found! Underneath the table on the deck somehow the ring must have bounced off something and ended up there as you can see by the picture the ring was very large. Mat & Sam was very happy to get the ring back once again. Thanks Matt for entrusting me and the TheRingFinders to search for your ring.
Received e-mail from Stephen on Thursday July 11, that he had lost his wedding ring the night before while he was playing soccer in the rain at a soccer field in west Edmonton. I spoke to Stephen in regards to his lost ring; he was not sure where about he had lost it. I meet up with him at the field and he showed me where he was playing. He told me he was taking turns playing goal keeper and his ring could be anywhere on the field. after about 20 minute searching “bingo” I found his gold wedding ring about 20 feet from the goal post I called him over he could not believe his eyes that his ring was reunited once again, Another happy client.
The call came in Saturday afternoon and the young man said that his wife had lost her wedding ring at Stanley Park while taking wedding photos. He asked if I could come out and take a look and I said that I could be there in two hours as I was visiting my dad who lives a good hour plus from Vancouver.
I grabbed my detector and headed for the park and when I got there I received a call from the young man who I thought was going to meet me there to show me the area but as we talked I realized he was the groom and it was his bride that lost the ring.
They were at the reception celebrating and he told me over the phone where he knew the ring was lost and I thought I was in the right area but not 100% sure. After 3 1/2 hours I packed it up until the next morning when I received a call from her bridesmaid.
We met up and she was able to show me the area that they were taking pictures and she told me the story about the ring that was lost…It was the brides great-grandmothers ring that was handed down to the brides grandmother then past on to the brides mother and her mother gave it to her on her wedding day.
This would make the ring extremely sentimental and to lose it on that special day just broke her heart. After getting good directions of where they were and what they were doing I was able to utilize my process of elimination and shortly after three hours I found her great-grandmothers wedding ring.
I have the greatest Job in the world… I get to make people smile!
