Well sometimes you find the ring quickly and other times it could take days. My last search was for a ring that was thrown out of anger and I spent 4 days and a total of 21 hours and no luck! I hate that result because it should be there? I believe I did my best but sometimes you just can’t find them for whatever unknown reason may be a squirrel, maybe a bird, maybe superhuman strength, and the ring went onto the road. Just to let you guys know I don’t always find everything I’m looking for, but I don’t give up easily.

Yesterday I got a phone call from a young man he said his friend lost his gold ring over his balcony down a bit of a ravine and no one could find it. He gave me the information and some details, then he connected me with his friend, the young man told me it was a custom-made gold ring with diamonds that he had for a very short time. I can sense his urgency and even though it was 5 PM rush-hour I jumped into my car and drove an hour and 30 minutes to Mission where he lived to help him find his lost ring.

When I arrived I met Terry and we discussed the search, I could see where he and his friends were searching with a metal detector but had no luck, it was just starting to get dark so I turned on my headlights and off to work I went. Strangely the search area was very similar to the last search that took me four days with no luck, uneven surfaces and lots of Ivy makes it extremely difficult.

After approximately 40 minutes and moving some logs and branches I received a very good signal and to my delight, I caught a glimpse of his beautiful custom gold ring! I was extremely excited and started packing up and climbing up the ravine, when I got to the top where I was putting down my equipment Terry drove up to the driveway, I didn’t know he had already gone and came back. When he got close I told him I needed to go get some more equipment because of the harsh terrain, then I held up the ring in front of him. I have the best job in the world I get to make people smile!

Terry was very happy and he was very kind with a generous reward for helping him find his recently made custom gold ring. Thank you, Terry, It was an honor to find that beautiful ring for you, and thank you for trusting me to search for it.

Lost Gold Pendant in Surrey, BC…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463


I received a call from a young man who told me that his sister lost a gold emerald and ruby pendant, possibly in their backyard. I set up a time to go meet and look for it when I received a call from a young lady who lost a ring in a public area, which is a high priority search. I recontacted with the young man and asked if he was OK that I come later on in the evening, he was fine with that.

When I arrived at his home he went on to tell me that the pendant was actually his wife’s pendant that she lent it to her sister-in-law to wear on her wedding day. While they were celebrating in the backyard the pendant broke loose of the chain but with all the confetti on the ground, it made it almost impossible for them to find it. They went out at night with flashlights hoping they could see the glitter of the emeralds & rubies.

The young man show me where his sister spent most of the time in the backyard and I knew it would just be a matter of minutes before I would find this beautiful pendant if it indeed was lost there. Ten minutes later I found it, because he did not want to be on my video I had to take a picture of me holding it with my smile. This is just to prove that I found what I was looking for so we can record it for a Book of Smiles.

Lost Gold Ring, White Rock Beach…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Call ASAP  Anytime 24/7   778-838-3463


I got a call about a lost ring at Cresent Beach, it turns out it was close to the area that I searched for a lost silver moonstone ring, 3 weeks earlier. It’s not my favorite area to search due to huge rocks and a long hike into the area.  After discussing the search and looking at the tide chart we set a date for 4 days later to do the search. The story about the ring was the young man had lost it in waist-deep water, they were smart to make reference markers, one was a huge rock he was by, and the other was the trail they walked down. This makes a huge difference in looking for something as small as a ring. The young lady told me the story about the ring and how important it was to find it, it was a gift from her late grandfather who was 94 years old when he passed. It was his wedding band and now handed down to continue a new love story!

We decided to walk the railroad tracks because of the trails were closed, I definitely didn’t bring the right shoes, I wore my water boots soft soul and the walk was approximately 45 minutes to the location. Because of all the rocks around the tracks, my feet were extremely sore! We arrive at the location and just as we got off the tracks a train came whipping by, I couldn’t believe how fast it came around the corner, good thing we were off the tracks.

The young lady showed me the big rock where her husband lost the ring and within minutes I found the ring! I get as happy as the person who lost it when I find what I’m looking for! I love the smiles I find and the stories that are attached to the rings…I called this recovery…The Circle of Love.

Lost Gold Wedding Band Spanish Banks, Vancouver…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was at work when I received a call from a young lady who told me that her husband lost his gold wedding band in the sand just in front of their pop up tent. She said that they had looked for the ring but it was impossible to find with all the sand.

Strangely I was getting off work early that day and I was only 15 minutes away from there location. I headed over to the beach and found parking and met the young couple, he showed me what he was doing and where he felt the ring was lost.

I turned on my detector and the 3rd target about 1 minute the young man had his gold wedding band back on his hand! I love the stories attached to the rings I find and I’m just as happy to find it as they are to get it back!

Lost Platinum Diamond Ring at Crescent Park, Surrey…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I got a call from a young lady a week ago explaning how she had lost her ring at a park not far from where I live. I went out to the park the next day and we met and she showed me the area and it was a pretty big area. It was a hot sunny day and

I started my grid search, after 4+ hours and no ring I decided to come back with a friend when the weather cooled down a bit in the early morning. That way I could drag a foot and see the grid lines from the dew on the ground, this helps because its such a game of inches and could be missed very easily.

Flash forward a week and I’m in the grocery store waiting to pay when the lady in front of me with three kids looks at me and says I know you, I recognized her as well, but I could not put my finger on where we met. I thought for moment and said TheRingFinders? Her son looked up and said it’s Chris! He remembered my name…Amazing!

I told her that I would go back the next morning to take another look for her ring…I got there early in the morning and there was a group of kids setting up the area to play soccer so this put me in the lower area of the field which happened to be the hot spot…20 minutes into the search I found the ring!

This is the best part of the search & recovery…The Smile!

Metal Detector Rental White Rock BC

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Most people will rent or buy a metal detector to find their lost ring. The only thing is if you’ve never used one you will have a slim chance in finding your ring. The members and myself from have many years of experience and the know how…This search today didn’t need the use of the detector…How many people who would have rented a detector would have found this ring? One thing we all do is think out of the box. Lynn was shaking a towel over her balcony when her 2 rings flew off her finger…

She found one ring in the small rocks very quickly. No need for a metal detector for that ring…But where did the second ring go? Maybe into the garden/rhododendron bushes but it would have been an easy eye ball search. I asked Lynn if there was a chance the ring could have slipped off finger in the house? She question herself and went inside to look. I stood there and thought… one ring fell on the rocks and why not the second ring?

Just then I notice a dip alongside of the foundation of the house, the rocks  sunk into the ground in a very small area so I took a knee and had a look and BINGO there was the ring! I was so happy!










I was able to surprise Lynn, I have the greatest job in the world! I get to make people smile!

Lost Diamond Ring in New Westminster, BC…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Yesterday I got a call from a young man who needed my help to find his girlfriends 2 rings that she tossed out of his SUV while driving down the road. People are human, its true! They get mad and when they get mad in most cases rings go flying! I’ve had many calls over the years for these types of recoveries. I’d say most times I’m unsuccessful because of the locations I search are not metal detector friendly. “NEWS FLASH” (While writing this post the couple called me and said that the other ring was found in their home! She has no idea how it showed up there as she is certain she threw it out the window with the other ring…Makes me feel much better! I hate the thought of not finding what I’m looking for).

Well that makes it a happy ending! I have met so many nice people over the years doing what I do and I look forward to meeting many more!


Here’s the couple and her beautiful diamond ring.

Lost Tiffany Silver Necklace, Found Kits Beach.

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Thanks to an anonymous person who contacted a lady on the craigslist in regards to my service, I was able to help her find her lost silver Tiffany necklace that was gifted to her by her mother.

It was a bit of a longshot because the necklace was lost for three days on a very popular beach where everyone metal detects. The other factor was it was lost by a log, and everyone searches the logs. I was a little nervous that someone may have already found the necklace.

We met that evening and I told the young lady the bad news that due to the time that had passed the necklace may have been found already. That being said  I was excited to start the search and I was very hopeful that the necklace was still there.

Within 5 minutes at about 4 inches down I received a soft signal and there it was in my scoop! I was as excited as she was to see it…If it’s there I’ll find it.
