How to find a lost ring in the sand, Spanish Banks Beach… Vancouver, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Summer is warming up and more calls are coming in…This call was from a young man who said that his friend lost a large gold ring while throwing a foot ball. These searches are usually 100% successful because they know that the ring came off while throwing the ball.

I told them to relax and I will find the ring, it was almost  a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, so I hit the road right away.

When I arrived and met the party I was introduced to the young man who lost what I found out was his wedding band, it was a huge one by the sounds of it. As I was getting ready to do the search and after asking my typical questions, I noticed there was a lot of eyes on me!  I knew the pressure was on! But not to worry as I also knew it was a matter of time before I find the ring. I knew I would find it as sand eats up gold, but the gold can’t hide from me and my detector!

30 seconds into the search I received a great signal on my detector and BINGO! I had his huge gold ring in my scoop. I loved the reaction of everyone on the beach as they cheered for the young man!

As always… I love the Smiles!

Lost Gold Wedding Band in Surrey/Langley…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Victim #3 (Lost Ring) due to recent snow storm… I got another call from Royal who told me that he possibly lost his ring while he was scraping snow off his truck. He said there was a possibility it may have been lost in his house, but him and his wife searched his place pretty thoroughly and could not find it. He was at work when he called and asked me if there was a chance I could come down and meet him so he could show me where he was parked. It was bothering him so much at work thinking it maybe on the road somewhere.

I told him I’d come out right away to help him search for his lost ring. Anytime a ring his lost in the snow on the side of the road, its important to get there as quickly as possible to make sure the ring is not driven away by someones truck tire tread. Also you want to make sure you beat the snow plow as it can push a ring hundreds of yards down the road, into a pile of the snow.

I met Royal a short time later at his place, he showed me where his truck was parked and also where he went to another vehicle and where he walked from the house to that vehicle. I started my search where he was scraping the snow off of his work truck, still no ring. I started to grid search from the vehicle furthest away towards his truck, as I passed by the truck that he was scraping the snow off …Bang! found it. Very close to the road!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can watch the video and see the surprise look on his face when I showed him his ring! He had already given up the thought of finding it as it was already 30 minutes into the search.

Metal Detector Rental Vancouver, BC.

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

 

Why rent a metal detector when you can hire a metal detecting expert who has found & returned over 500 lost rings to their very happy owners!

Most people think of renting a metal detector when they lose their ring, the problem is if you’ve never used one you can be walking away from finding your ring. Its not as easy as it looks and if you’re a first timer it can be confusing, that’s when a metal detecting expert comes into play.

This call was to find a lost diamond ring that has been handed down from generations, three to be exact. I’ve always said that every ring we find for someone has an amazing story attached to it and how that story ends if we can’t find it. This call was to help find her ring in the ocean at English Bay and how she went and bought goggles and searched for hours with no luck! Thankfully we live in the computer age and people have a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever!

I drove to the beach right away and met the young lady and her friend and they showed me the area they believed the came off. It took me maybe 10 minutes to find and the look on her face was priceless when I showed it to her!

Lost Diamond Ring at Kits Beach…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was out visiting my grandson on the Island when I received a distress call from a young lady who lost her diamond engagement ring at Kits beach. I listened to her story on how she lost her ring and how they searched but couldn’t find it, I could tell she was very upset and that she thought she’d never see it again.

She went on to tell me that she was calling me from the airport and she was on her way back home from visiting Vancouver. She also said that she was getting married in 3 months, I asked her if she took any pictures of the area on the beach where she had lost the ring and she said she did and sent them to me.

After taking a look at the pictures I knew exactly where on the beach she was, I told her that I’d be there in a couple of hours to find her ring. I headed back to Vancouver after a day with my grandson and went directly to Kits beach. I found the area she lost the ring and started my search, after 20 minutes and the good signal I was looking for and in my scoop was her beautiful engagement ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to send her a text message with a picture of her ring and when she landed back home In Saskatchewan the first thing she saw on her phone was a picture of her ring. The next thing I did was go to Fed-EX and ship back her beautiful engagement ring.

Lost Gold Wedding Band Vancouver, BC…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Yesterday I was on a water hunt that started in February but I had to put it aside for warmer water. Well the temperature was perfect and the water was warm but after 4 1/2 hours in the stinky the beaver pond  I sadly had no success. I put in a total of 7 1/2 hours in a relatively small area but with some difficulties. The only thing I could guess was that the ring didn’t go in the water where he thought it did…? It happens, I don’t always have success but with that said I received a call while I was wrapping up the search from a young man that needed help finding his lost wedding band at a playground.

I headed out to the park and got there before him, I started my search and within 15 minutes I found his ring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was extremely lucky that no one found it before us, he had lost it the day before and the following day was a hot one and lots of people at the playground even when I got there around 8pm.

The ring was found in front of the slide and visible to the eye, the good thing was that the wood chips helped camouflage the gold ring.

Lost My Ring While Raking Leaves In The Lower Mainland/Vancouver

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Well it’s that time of year again when people are losing their jewelry while gardening and raking leaves, It happens every fall! The sad thing is most people just give up the search after they can’t find their lost item. I got a call from a young man named Joe who didn’t give up the search and found TheRingFinders.com online while looking to rent a metal detector.

Joe explained to me over the phone that he felt that the ring might have come off his finger when he took his gloves off to answer his phone in his front yard. He wasn’t 100% sure but he thought it was the most likely place where the ring could be lost. Joe searched himself but to no avail,

He was not ready to give up the search so he had me come out to take a look.

I was excited for the challenge but I only had a 4 hour window before I started work so I drove out to his place (over an hour drive each way) and to both of our surprise the search only took 10 seconds! That’s right… turn on the machine 10 seconds later I found his ring, I have the best job in the world… I get to make people smile, Joe was in a little bit of shock as he couldn’t believe I was holding up his ring so quickly. In over 500 recoveries that I have made, you get lucky once in a while! I was extremely happy to have found this ring for such a nice young man.

Lost Wedding Band Vancouver, BC…Found

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Rings get lost…It happens!

I was away in Europe when I got the phone call from Fran about her husband Dan’s lost ring. I told Fran I’d be back in a week and I would come out and find the ring for them, I forgot. I got the call yesterday to remind me about the ring in the garden and I apologized and met them the next day and found his lost wedding band of 25 years. Fran told me that the ring was made up from her old gold rings so that was very special indeed.

It was lost in the front garden and I found it with my Minelab CTX3030.

The wonderful thing about this couple is they grow flowers for charity in their backyard. How wonderful and thoughtful of them to do this and what a great way to give back! Dan put together a wonderful bouquet of flowers for my wife who wass very excited when I presented them to her when I got home…Thanks Dan & Fran!

Lost Gold Krugerrand Coin at UBC…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was out searching the beach at Point Roberts when I got a 911 call in regards to a lost family heirloom at UBC. I listened to the message and could hear the desperation in the young mans voice and just how important it was to help find his friends lost item.

I called them back and we talked about the search, I headed back across border and straight to UBC. When I arrived at UBC night was fast approaching, I met the two young men, Isaac & Jackson, who are majoring in iron engineering. We discussed the search and where they felt the gold coin could be…I had lights with me so I was prepared to search into the night, if need be so.

I started my grid with Isaac following my every footstep and watching every signal that I checked with my pin pointer. After 15 minutes of doing my grid I saw the gold krugerrand coin right in front of me! I stepped on the coin and put down my detector and turned on the camera on my iPhone 7+

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I calmly reached down and said… Is this what you’re looking for? I loved his reaction as he was speechless! Jackson was just as happy to see his best friends gold coin!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jackson was a huge reason why his best friend got his gold coin back as he was the one who searched online and found TheRingFinders. I always wonder how many people walk away and give up the search for their lost items. Thankfully the internet has made it possible for people to reconnect with their cherished keepsakes.

Found Wedding Ring at English Bay Beach… Flying Home to Owner

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I got a call Friday and the young lady asked me what the chances are in finding a ring that was lost earlier in the week at English Bay Beach…She thinks it was lost there but wasn’t 100% sure of the location.

When I get calls like this I like to ask lots of questions and one was, why do you think it was lost at English Bay? She replied that she was in town on business and at lunch she went to the beach, ordered a hamburger and sat on a log enjoying a sunny day. After eating the hamburger she walked to the Watersedge and washed her hands, then went back to her hotel where she realized her ring was gone.

To me it made the most sense that the ring must have come off when she was washing her hands and I felt confident if she could put me in the right area we’d have a good chance of recovery. That being said it was lost for four days and there’s always a chance some other metal detectorist may have found it.

The other factor was that she was now back home in Ottawa, Eastern Canada, 4 hour flight away. Saturday morning I picked up my metal detector and headed to the beach, I took pictures of the area she believed she was sitting and she confirmed the location…You have to love the internet! Without it, people wouldn’t find TheRingFinders and no second chance!

Within a couple of minutes I found her wedding band! I get as excited as the people who lose it when I see it in my scoop. I quickly took a picture of the ring and text messaged her it was found.

I then raced over to FedEx and sent it back home to a very happy young lady.

Lost gold ring in backyard…South Surrey, BC

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I was at work when I got a call from a young lady who said that he daughter lost her ring that was given to her by her bother. She said that she googled and found TheRingFinders and thought that she would give it a chance.

I could tell she was a little sceptical but most people are until you find what they’ve lost then they become belivers!

She told me that they had a wedding party in their back yard and that’s where her 9 year old daughter was last seen with the ring.

I arrived at her place in the evening and it was dark but that is fine for me! I don’t mind working at night and sometimes its easier and not as hot.

She showed me where her daughter said that she’d lost the ring and after a couple of minutes and no ring I just expanded the search a little and bang! There was her ring sitting in the yellow grass and hard to see but my detector see’s it all…
