The Tale of Three Missing Rings! Parkland County, Alberta Canada.

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)

Debbi called me yesterday to see if I could come out to her acreage and help her find her Engagement/Wedding/Anniversary rings which where solder together. They were lost about 30 days ago while she was pulling her plants and cleaning up her flower beds around her house, so she thought!.

After asking Debbie my usual questions in regards to her lost Rings I agreed to meet her at her home around 2 pm. She showed me where her rings could be and the area she traveled to her compost pile with her wheelbarrow.

Firstly I search the flower beds and immediate area, no rings. I then headed to the compost pile, still no rings.  I asked Debbi more questions to try and trigger her memory as to where she had been that day. When she realized her rings where lost she told me she was all over the place and the rings could be anywhere?

After exhausting all possible search areas I told Debbi her rings where not in the area she told me they could be.  I told her the rings could be in the house and to look there.   I also asked if she had looked in her car but she said she had looked so I asked her to take another look. While I was picking up my markers I heard a loud scream, “I FOUND THEM”!  Her rings were in the spare tire wheel well, in the trunk of her Honda. They were in a safe place and who knows how long they would have remained there if I had not insisted that she checked her car.  Debbi was over the moon to have her rings back on her finger.

The moral of this tale is never give up! Thank you Debbi for entrusting me to help you locate your rings.

14k Promise Ring Lost! Travelodge Parking Lot, Edmonton Alberta.

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)


Jake called me requesting my assistance to locate his girlfriend’s 14k yellow gold promise ring lost while brushing off snow from their vehicle.

I met up with Jake and Emma at the parking lot. I could sense that both where very stressed that the ring was lost and assured them I would find the ring for them.

Jake had bought the ring for Emma 1 day ago and while Emma was brushing off the snow from their car roof without gloves.  In our Canadian cold climate your fingers got very cold quickly and the ring flew off her finger onto the parking lot somewhere.  They had searched for the ring with no luck.

Within ten minutes of arriving the ring was found and returned to a very happy couple after an extremely stressful afternoon.

Unique Two Gold Wedding Ring! Lost Bonaventure Industrial Park, Edmonton Alberta.

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)


Ashley called this morning requesting my service to locate her husband’s wedding ring which he lost yesterday while at work.  Ashley gave me Nick, her husband’s cell phone so I called Nick and asked him a few questions.  I agreed to search and told him I would be there within a ½ hour.

Nick showed me where the ring could be.  He was opening a gate and felt the ring slip of his finger and ended up in the snow. The temperature yesterday was -28 Celsius.  This morning Temperature was a cool -32 with a windshield of -40 Celsius.

Nick had searched the area but could not find his ring.  It was apparent that a truck had driven over the ring and buried it.  I had a hard time to dig the ring out of the frozen packed snow.

Nick was very happy to have the ring back on his finger and he told me the ring was very sentimental to him as the ring belonged to his late father and his wife’s late Stepfather.  They had been welded together.

Thank you Ashley and Nick for allowing me to locate your Unique ring.

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)


Lloyd was a past client of mine about four years ago, He had called me to locate his gold ring which he lost while throwing a ball for his dog which I found and returned to him.
This time he had lost a sterling silver ring which was given to him from a dear friend that has since passed away so this ring has a very special meaning to him.
Lloyd told me he was planting shrubs in his front yard and picking weeds in his back yard so he said it could be anywhere! Lloyd had a couple of friends with him looking for the ring but had no luck in finding it. I searched his front yard and then the back yard and it was in the back yard where I found his ring along his flower beds. Lloyd was relieved to have his ring back on his finger.
Thank you Lloyd, for another successful search.

10k White Gold Diamond Ring Lost! Back Alley Wainwright, Alberta, Canada

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)


Branden called me yesterday afternoon around 3pm asking if I could locate his girlfriend’s ring which she had lost in the back alley the night before. Alberta has been under an extreme cold weather warning for the past 12 days and the temperature in Wainwright was -31 with a windshield making it feel like -40C. Wainwright is a 2.5 hrs. drive east of my home base. After asking Branden a few questions and realizing how sentimental the ring was to him I agreed to drive out and do the search.

I arrived at 6pm and met up with Branden and Selina in the back alley. I asked Selina to show me exactly what she was doing when she lost her ring. Selina told me she reached into her car to take a block heater cord out to plug her car in for the evening and as she was doing so she felt her ring slip off from her finger and into the snow.
They both searched desperately for hours for the ring and even piled the snow in buckets and brought them into the house for the snow to melt but had no luck.

Branden had a metal detector and checked the area, but again had no luck, so decided to do a Google search for a better detector and found the Ringfinders website. He checked the directory and found my blog page, He was very impressed with my returned finds and called me.
I spent 2.5 hours with Branden in the extreme cold weather in the back alley searching all possible areas with no luck and by this time Branden was giving up on the search. After again listening to Selina’s story, I recalled a similar situation where a ring had ended up behind the person when they thought the ring had gone forward.

I searched six feet back from where Selina said the ring could be and received a very low tone. I told Branden that this must be the ring.
There, buried 3” deep in the hard packed snow was the ring! Branden could not believe his eyes and the smile on Selina’s face said it all.
Thank you for entrusting me to locate your very precious ring.
