Lost your ring at the beach…Call: Chris Turner 778-838-3463 Member & CEO of TheRingFinders.com
First Day of the Year and First Gold ring of the Year…Most of my recoveries start with a call followed with a location but this was different. It was Jan.1st 2020 and I went to English Bay beach after the Polar Bear swim where I waited for dark to start my search of the beach.
I started detecting the beach where just hours before there were thousands of people diving into the cold water to bring in the new year. I saw another detectorist (Steve) nice young man out detecting, we talked for a bit and continued on our way.
I’ve searched many years after the polar bear swim and I hardly find enough to buy a coffee and have never found gold after this event. That changed today, I found a beautiful 18 kt gold wedding band with 3 small diamonds. What a great feeling to see that in my scoop and I had a great feeling that I would find the owner as there was the wedding date and name in this ring.
When I got home I posted it on the Craigs List and when I woke up the next morning I had 4 bogus emails & text messages in regards to the ring…All scams! Then another hunter contacted me with a number of someone who had lost a ring that matched mine. I contacted the man and he called me back a few hours later with the exact details of the ring!
As most of you know I get joy out of returning these cherished keepsakes back to their owners and what a great young man I met today, as you can imagine he was very happy!
I love my job! Lost your ring…Call a member of TheRingFinders ASAP
I received a call at 8:30 p.m on Sunday in regards to a lost ring at a playground in Langley. The young man told me that the ring belonged to his 5 year old daughter and it was just given to her that day from her grandmother. The story was that the girls grandmother just arrived back from Ireland where she bought the ring for her granddaughter. It was lost only 4 hours after she was given the ring.
I was getting ready to hit the hay as I had to get up at 4:30 am when Scott called, I knew this had to be looked for that evening as a lot of people search playgrounds and that ring could have been found the next day. I jumped into my car and headed 25 minutes down the road to Langley to help find the ring.
It was just starting to get dark when I arrived and Scott showed me the area his daughter was playing in, so I started my search. About 20 minutes into the search I found the ring!
I love my job! Scott was so happy that the ring was found and I’m sure grandmother would be too!

I received a call from a young lady the other day asking if I could help her find a lost ring that was a gift from her mom & dad and daughter, many years ago. After asking a few questions I came to realize she wasn’t a hundred percent sure it was lost where she thought it was…in the garden.
To her it made sense because she put the rings on just before she went out for lunch then at the last second she jumped in the garden to do a few things, she didn’t realize until later she was missing one ring. After searching the car and then searching her house she thought of renting a metal detector and that’s when she found TheRingFinders.
Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert to come out and help you find your lost item…It will save you countless hours and ensure you that the ring is there or not there. I always wonder how many people have rented a metal detector and didn’t find their ring and just gave up? Its not as easy as we make it look, we know our detectors and importantly the environment we are searching and the questions that will help us get close to what we are looking for.
In this search I couldn’t use my metal detector because of the thick over growth of flowers & plants and the fact that there was wire hold the flowers up. OK bring out the handheld pin pointer and get on my hands and knees and start the slow search!
Not long after searching the first area, Bingo! I was lucky to find her beautiful ring in the second location!
I love my job! Did you know there is a global directory called TheRingFinders.com with over 430 members helping people find what they thought was lost forever…We find Smiles!

Another victim of our February snowstorm…I received a call from Linda who was extremely saddened by the recent loss of her Tiffany diamond engagement ring that she received at Christmas. After talking to her on the phone for around 10 minutes I learned that she had bought a metal detector, took the day off work and searched with friends but could not find her engagement ring. It’s not uncommon for people to rent or buy a metal detector thinking they will find their ring themselves. Most people don’t realize it takes practice to use a detector and I have over 40 years of practice.
It was snowing out pretty hard, I jumped into my car and headed to North Surrey to help her find her diamond engagement ring. The side roads were a bit of a challenge in my car but I made it to her place, She showed me the area where she was scraping snow off of her car and where her dad was shovelling snow. I started my search in the area where we believe the ring should’ve fallen and after 15-20 minutes and no ring I started searching away from the hot spot.
Not long after I heard that sweet loud and proud target signal and Bang! Found it…
I had one very happy young lady! I love my job! I get to make people Smile!

Dawna emailed me late last night asking if I would help find her ring. When I called her this morning she told me that she had been doing yard work on Tuesday and that evening noticed her ring was missing from her finger. Over the next few days she went out to try and find it but with no luck, then thought that perhaps she had lost it in her bedroom and was unable to find it there either.
When I arrived around 8:30 this morning she showed me where in the yard her ring might be, and said that she had also worked in her flower pots. I checked a small area in her front yard, then moved to the back yard and did the same. Her ring was in the last pot that I checked in the back yard. My pin-pointer picked up a strong signal about three inched down. Another Happy Client. Thank you Dawna for e-mailing TheRingFinders.
I got a call the other night from a young man who was on his honeymoon from Cleveland Ohio. He told me that he lost his titanium wedding band well paddle boarding at English Bay Beach, he knew the area where the ring came off because it was when he fell of the board.
We discussed the search and because it was going on a high tide there was nothing i could do until morning. The young man was able to tell me where the ring was lost because it marked off the area and had land marks for me to line up with.
I wanted to be on the beach by 7:30 but I couldn’t find parking because there was a huge marathon going on early in the morning , it took me over an hour to get near the beach where I could park.
After setting up my grid I began to search and only 20 minutes into the search I got a good signal and I looked into the sand scoop to see his titanium wedding band…
What a great feeling knowing that I get to call the young man and give him the good news. They were on their honeymoon and you can imagine how horrible that would feel to lose a ring that was the one your wife gave you…
I love my job!!! Lost something and need it found…Call me ASAP
I received a call the other night from a young lady about a lost silver ring that was in the shape of a pyramid. She told me she was at Jericho Beach at 1 am and dove off the swim dock and realized right away that her ring came off. This ring was special as it was given to her by her boyfriend and as you could imagine it was super sentimental.
The young lady went back to the beach the next morning at low tide to look for the ring but couldn’t find it. As she was walking off the beach she saw my pamphlet for The Ring Finders and she gave me a call… I took all the information over the phone where she believed the ring was lost as she she took a late night dive off the dock and that was all the info I need.
I arrived at the beach as the tide was going out and started my search, after 45 minutes I could not find the ring and I checked my email and realized I was at the wrong beach… I raced over to the beach where I should have started and I begun my search.
After only 15 minutes I got a nice strong signal close to the chain that held the dock in place, there it was just an inch or son under the sand…
What a nice ring and a nice smile!
I love my job! If you lost something and need it found call me ASAP
I received a call from a young man the other day telling me that he lost a very special ring that was willed to him by a good friend who passed away a couple of years ago. He then went on to say that his friend hired me 3 years ago to find 4 huge gold biker rings that he lost at the work place…I knew right away who he was talking about and I remembered the search like it was yesterday. It’s not often you get a call to find 4 big gold rings! When I found them I remember how excited he was and what it meant to him.
I was sad to hear that JP passed and I was determined to help find this ring for his friend. The hard part was that it was lost in about 7-8 feet of water , the good thing about this search was that the young man knew where he lost it.
I used my custom made extra long handle scoop and with a big bucket on the dock I began the process of scooping the soft and muddy bottom. After 1 hour of dumping the mud into the bucket I heard the sweet sound of ”Clunk” in the bucket…This was even bigger then the 4 I found for JP years ago.
I was video typing the search and for some strange reason most of my footage wasn’t there???
I can tell you this…When it came out of the mud & dirt you could only imagine how good that felt for Matthew…Update I recovered the video footage!
