I got a call from a young man who told me that he lost his custom gold wedding band in the ocean while trying to learn how to paddle board.
The water was rough that day and he had a hard time getting up on the board, he kept falling into water and he remembered that it was waste deep and a sandy bottom.
That helps me a lot as when I went down there on the slope at low tide there was a lot of rocks and further out there was the sand. He told me that he didn’t know when the ring came off his finger and that makes it hard to narrow down the area.
He put me in an area of about 70 yards wide and about 60 yards long…That is pretty huge when you’re in water and looking for something as small as a ring but I love the search!
After listening to his story many times I desided to start the search out front of where he entered the water and I went up to waist deep and started searching up and back from waist deep to ankle deep and after the 5th gridline and only an hour I hit a strong loud & proud signal and I was thrilled to see the gold in the scoop!
I love my job! If you’ve lost a ring contact a member of TheRingFinders to help you find what you thought was lost for ever!
This evening I got from a young lady who lost her silver ring at Kits beach. She told me that she had been looking for the ring in the water for 2 hours! I knew right then that I’d be on my way to help her find it. I asked her to make good reference points to where the ring came off in the water and she did. When I arrived at Kits Beach at 9:30 PM I met Kristina and she told me the story about the ring and that it was a native carved ring that was given to her by her boyfriend 1 1/2 years ago and she went on to tell me how important it was to her and how much she’d love to get it back. We discussed the search area and she was very confident that she could put me in the exact area where she felt the ring come off her finger and fall into the water. Only one minute in the water and I found her beautiful silver native carved ring and the smile tells you the rest! I wish I had my camera on when I first found the ring to show you her reaction…I’m blessed with the ability to make people smile…I love my Job!Lost your ring? Call me ASAP!You can watch the video of the search below… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXrik0idlRE
Just before I was getting ready to call it a night I received an email that a young lady had lost both her wedding & engagement rings at the dog park at Kits Beach. I emailed the person right away and asked them to call me, minutes later we were discussing the search.
Because the rings were lost at such a high risk area…(beach and by a log) I knew that we’d have to get out ASAP to search for the rings. The young man agreed to meet me at 11:45 pm, we met and he showed me the area he thought the rings would be in…
After a few swings of my metal detector and no rings I began to move to the front of the log where they never searched for the rings and within a minute I found one of the rings…
Minutes after the wedding ring was found I found the engagement ring! Smiles all around! The rings were not where he thought they’d be but its my job to think of why they’re not there and expand my search area. For some reason the rings were deep! After discussing the search he told me that they have a 70 lb. dog that was play right were the rings where found…
I receive a call this morning from a young man who told me he lost a very special silver chain that was given to him by his girlfriend. He lost it at Kits Beach in Vancouver the evening of the fireworks.
That’s the worst time to lose something on the beach because after the fire works many metal detectorists will search the beaches all night long. I thought fore sure someone would have already found the chain.
I put out a few calls but no one heard of a silver chain being found on Kits Beach so I called the young man and we set a time to meet at the beach that day.
After about 20 minutes of searching for a parking spot we hooked up and discussed the search area and I told him that our chances where low and he understood.
He took me to the area and I set my grid and started to search, the people around the area were curious and watched as I searched. One pull tab, one bottle cap, one washer and then…Up from the sand hanging half out on my sand scoop was his beautiful silver chain!
Within seconds of seeing the silver glinting in the hot sun people started clapping and cheering… The young man and his girlfriend were all smiles.
I have found lots of rings and things over the years, this recovery made me smile to see how such a young man was so happy to see his silver chain that was given to him by his sweetheart. He told me how much it meant to him and another one wouldn’t be the same…
