While sledding at a Vancouver park with his daughter, Chris lost his white gold wedding band. When I met Chris he was very certain that it was lost at the park and he even had a video of him sledding, at one point he was shaking his hands in the video and he felt that was the moment the ring must have come off. Watching the video, I too felt the same way as Chris did as he said the ring was very loose, shaking your hands like that would make the ring come off for sure.
After Chris showed me the area, he went to work, I started my search at the top of the hill. I worked my way grid searching north/south and after 30 minutes I found his 19k white gold wedding band. I feel just as happy as the person I find it for does…Very Happy!

I got a call last night from a guy who had lost his wedding band the day before Christmas. He was so shook up, he said it felt like his arm was missing. Luckily, he was on break from college and I had today off, so I went early to help him find it.
He had been shoveling snow at his house and at his mother-in-law’s house, and had also been taking out the trash and doing dishes (good husband!). He really wasn’t sure which house he had lost it at. He searched so hard for it, even rented a metal detector, looked through all the trash and took the sink drain apart. No luck. They got married about a year and a half ago, and have been sweethearts since middle school. They had gotten the ring from a goldsmith in Maine who had custom made it for them. I told him we should have a good chance of finding it even if we have to do a lot of shoveling.
We started at his mother-in-law’s house. It was about zero, but not windy yet. There was no ring presenting itself here. I figured we should go search at his house first, before starting to shovel through the snowbanks here. There were lots of signals at his house, some were in 2 inches of solid ice. He boiled some water and we poured it onto a couple spots that sounded possible. No luck. He went inside to boil some more water, and I moved out behind the house to try there. I thought that there might be a chance the ring went flying when he shook snow off his gloves. My machine gave out that awesome ring signal, I reached in with the pinpointer and about 6 inches down in the snow, there it was, in perfect condition!
When he came back out I said “you can use that water for some tea, I found it!” He was so relieved and happy. He called his wife, and she and her mother came over to celebrate. We had a nice visit trading stories.
