Nitin from Brampton & Bhavna from Caledon were recently engaged to be married within the last week. They made a trip up to Blue Mountain Village in Collingwood, Ontario for some fresh air and a day out!
Nitin decided to make a snow ball on the pathway between the parking lot and the village stores. He felt his 11g 14k white brushed gold and diamond filled engagement band fall off his finger.
Nitin purchased a metal detecting as well as a blow torch to melt the snow. Unfortunately, Nitin had no success but tried his best.
Nitin searched the internet and found the ‘The Ring Finders Dot Com’ directory where he found my information. We made arrangement to meet at the Village on Monday late afternoon.
With-in 54 seconds, I had a sold 9 VDI signal on my Minelab Equinox 800 detector with-in 2” in the snow. I cleared the snow with my boot and spotted the Nitin’s engagement band!!
Check out the video and surprise;
A very happy couple alongside Bhavna’s Mother who was visiting from overseas. All were elated with joy!
Nitin made a generous donation to the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation’ on my behalf at my requirement for my ‘pay-it-forward’ campaign raising charity donation using my passion for metal detecting/scuba dive detecting for this charity I’ve been associated with 13 of 22 years!!
Thank you Nitin & Bhavna for allowing me the honour to recover and return Nitin’s sentimental engagement ring!
I wish you both much love & forever happiness with your upcoming nuptials in May! Blessings to all!
I received a phone call from Jessica who was heartbroken as she lost a very sentimental Family heirloom pure gold ring that was made in Shanghai. Jessica graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master of Laws degree just two weeks ago! She wore her ring for her graduate photos. The wind caught Jessica’s graduation cap. Jessica quickly reached for the cap and felt her loose ring fly off her hand. The Family searched the area for some time with no luck. Even some of the University staff helped to look for her ring.
Jessica then obtained permission from the University of Toronto staff to allow a metal detectorist from ‘The Ring Finders’ directory to assist! I alway respect private property and am grateful to be granted permission to detect and help recover Jessica’s special ring! I would love to have permission to go back to recover & donate all the lost relics/history still in the ground! Saving history from generations ago! Who knows, there could be more lost U of T alumni rings!
I had many memories flooding back just driving down to the location! I even shed a few tears. You see, my late Father WO George Walker worked for Toronto Hydro for 40 years! As well, my Father was a well know bagpiper for the 48th Highlanders of Canada for over 50 years! He piped many weddings at Hart House and well as graduations ceremonies at the University of Toronto and York University! Happy proud tears for sure!
Check out the video of the ring return surprise! Great deal of thanks also to the Campus Police Officer Matthew for going along with the prank surprise as Jessica had left the location for a quick coffee!
This unique pure gold ring is not like any normal ring as it is a wrap-around ring with no connecting loop! Jesica and I thought the ring was 14k but it turns out the inside symbols represents the makers mark, a karat stamp referring to 99 pure gold and the number 14 which refers to ring size 14! Who knew!
Thank you Jessica for your generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation and entrusting me to help recover and return your priceless Family Heirloom graduation gift from your beloved Grandmother!! Happy, healthy, bright and safe future ahead and many years to come!!
I received an email from Adrienne that her husband Michael lost his platinum wedding band in the silty waters dockside at their cottage in Lake Rosseau!
Lake Rosseau is an absolutely beautiful area in Ontario’s cottage country!
Michael was covering up their boat on a cold day and his wedding ring slipped off between the boat and the dock into the silty waters six feet below.
They made attempts to find the wedding ring themselves with no luck. A Friend suggested to contact my through The Ring Finders Dot Com website in which Adrienne connected with me!
Ontario cottage country was ablaze with the various trees “fall colors” on my trip up to Lake Rosseau in the Muskoka Lakes region!
I brought along my brand new hookah system called the “BLU3 NEMO”! This unit has a total weight of 10-12lbs total! I still had my fill scuba gear just in case!
Michael showed the exact location on the dock where he watched his wedding band fall into the water.
I proceeded into the water with the hookah unit and my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector. Five minutes later the wonderful “tone” of platinum sounded off in my headphones after I pulled two nails! BINGO!!!
I proceeded up from underneath the dock with the beautiful wedding band leading the way!
Here is the video of this beautiful wedding band recovery for Michael & Adrienne;
Happy smiles all around!!
Thank you so very much Michael & Adrienne for entrusting me to recover this beautiful wedding band but also your very generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I am humbled at your generosity as a credit to my metal/scuba detecting skills!
Michael and his family rented a cottage in the Port Carling, Muskoka Lakes Cottage country area in Ontario!
The cottage was nestled in the pine trees with an incredible view on Lake Joseph!
Michael had gone for a swim and later in the day he realized his custom wedding band crafted from an engine fan blade of an F-16 fighter jet was no longer on his finger! He and his wife Heather searched their cottage and boat with no luck!
Michael somehow got talking to my Friend Don “The HULSTER” Hulse whom works at the transfer station. Don advised Michael to call his Wife Laurie for my information!
I received a message from him and agreed to head up very early the following Labour Day holiday morning to search in the water!
Happy to have pulled off the surprise in recovering Michael’s unique wedding band!!
Check out the surprise In this video link…I reversed it up from my normal routine!!
Another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation 🌸💖🌸
Thanks to my dear Friend’s Laurie & Don for their recommendation 🌺❤️🌺 #LakeJoseph
Young man Shaw was attending a Family Wedding with his Family recently. Later in the day he noticed his late Grandfather’s wedding band that was gifted to him missing off his finger.
I set out early this morning for the three hour drive, met up with Shaw to discuss the areas and the second pass back we had an amazing tone!
This Heirloom wedding band meant the absolutely world to Shaw and we are so happy to have helped recover and return it quickly!

Jessica and Jackson had just become engaged within the last week. Jessica had just put on some sunscreen and felt her Engagement ring was OK to leave on her finger! Not too long after, her ring slipped off her finger through the deck boards and into the waters below. Jessica Panicked but she was smart enough to put dimes down and placed a nail with rope/washers in location she felt her ring fell through the deck! Jessica then googled “Lost Ring and waters“, “The Ring Finders” directory came up and she called me immediately!
She was extremely upset when she called and inquire about The Ring Finders services!! PANIC HAD SET IT!
I made arrangements to come up the following evening immediately after work! I assured Jessica that she would not be going home without her engagement ring!!
I arrived in good time, set up all my scuba dive equipment and dive detecting equipment as the dark rain clouds moved in! Jessica’s Father was a huge help with my equipment!
Into the waters I went! Up once after a few minutes to re-check my position as there was ZERO VISIBILITY !! Could of targets later… THAT TONE!!!
Check out the video!!
Lots of patience and removing a few targets and there was her beautiful 10k white gold and diamond filled engagement ring!!! A very happy young couple indeed! CONGRATULATIONS Jessica & Jackson on your very recent engagement!!! ❤️💍❤️
Another donation coming in to “The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation” shortly for my “PAY-IT-FORWARD” campaign as I forgo the ‘reward’ in recovery their lost item! Tax receipt provided by this awesome Foundation! 🌸💖🌸 Thank you again Jessica & Jackson! 🌸💖🌸
Mr. Lee and his family decided to go swimming at Wasaga Beach #1 on his 25th wedding anniversary!
The waters were getting rough mid-afternoon. He felt his ring pop off his finger and he tried to find it!
I received a call shortly after and headed up after work meeting Mr Lee and his Family! I started my grid search pattern with Mr. Lee in the water beside me and had no luck. The waters were calming down but there was still a little bit of an undertow. I had no luck after searching for 4 to 5 hours and decided to go back early Saturday morning! I continued again starting to grid search To the East of the previous days attempt!
Once I got back to the area where Mr. Lee felt his ring come off, I decided because of the undertow to search 10 to 50 feet behind where the area.
i had a solid crisp signal on the Equinox 800 with an “11” VDI reading! There was Mr’ Lee’s wedding band in my scoop!!!
check out the video!!
Here comes my favorite part!!! “THE SURPRISE”
It was an honor and a pleasure to help Mr. Lee recover his precious lost wedding ring of 25 years! I will be grateful for his donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer foundation when it comes in and he will receive a tax receipt for the amount!! My Pay-It-Forward” program !!
🌸💖🌸 Thank you Mr and Mrs Lee! Happy 25th Anniversary 🌸💖🌸
Last Saturday a young man named Shamir was out with his Friends Saturday evening in a Brampton Park calked “Black Forest South Park”.
Shamir was gifted his late Grandmother’s 24k Indian gold & diamond wedding band 10 years ago. He had the ring hanging from a thin 24k good chain.
While out with his Friends they were horsing around. He soon noticed his gold chain & ring were no longer around his neck and panic set in!
Shamir and his Friends started to hunt around for both of these precious items and spent 3-4 hours that night as well as a number of hours the next day. Shamir found the broken gold chain but did not find the precious heirloom ring.
Shanir did a google search and a number of pages came up… Kijiji, Marketplace, CarryAll Canada detector sales in Toronto. He called CarryAll and spoke to Shawn Hamilton who recommended me from “The Ring Finders” directory. Shamir called late Sunday for help.
I was able to meet up with Shamir today at lunch During my workday! We pulled more than the normal beer caps, pull tabs, along with a tonnie, a dime, an American penny, 2 keys, tons and tons of can slaw and an old broken watch… I noticed the Parks staff must have had the lawn cutting machines out so hope was fading!
My lunch hour was up and I decided to circle backto my work truck widening the grid pattern! I said one more target and BINGO there was a VDI “4” on my Equinox800 but a solid signal. I always dig the solid signals not paying attention to the numbers as Shamir wasn’t sure The karat of the ring…. so now to surprise him with a so called sad faced (lol) “wrap up” video!
Check out the video here;
Shamir was elated and was a bit in shock!! So happy to help him and his Mother to find this very sentimental heirloom wedding band!! 🌸💖🌸
A dear Friend and Co-worker Rockin’ Robbie sent me a message last night that his son little Robbie Jr. lost his prescription glasses playing in the snow. Robbie knew I was a detectorist registered with TheRingFindersDotCom and I was successful helping others!
I brought my metal detectors into work and we decided to meet up at lunch break!
Rockin’ Robbie said his son was playing on the pile of snow in the cul-de-sac as well as on the front yard of two homes. His pocket was undone and he thinks the glasses fell out.
I started grid searching with the ExcalibarII on the mini mountain. Then after a car moved in the front of one home I switched over to the Equinox 800. Within two minutes we found little Robbie Jr.’s glasses!! Unfortunately, they were damaged and we had figured the snow blower must have eaten them!! Lucky Robbie Jr. Still has his old pair!
I was happy to help my Friend & Co-worker but sad his Son’s glasses were damaged!
Here’s a video link:
I felt like a kid again standing on top of a snow mountain!!
