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.
I hope she sends me a picture of her and her smile so I can take my ugly mug off this post.lol
I love my job! You can watch the video of the search below.
On Friday the 4th I received a frantic 2am text from Stefan who lost his gold and diamond wedding ring on the Barry University campus after a soccer practice. I spoke to him at 4 and we met at first light.
Stefan had seen it fly off his finger on Thursday evening while walking down a pathway but it disappeared into the bushes and he was unable to locate it. He was truly panicked for he stays on campus during the week but was going home to see his wife that night and could chance doing so without his ring on his finger.
He showed me the area where he lost it and I proceeded to start searching.
Within a few minutes, and with the help of my Garrett pinpointer, I found it in the mulch below the bushes. Needless to say, he was very happy and only now would he share the story about the lost ring with his wife.
Another couple saved from heartbreak thanks to The Ring Finders!
I will search land or sea(including scuba dive) to help you get reunited with your lost treasure and heal your heartbreak.
Baham from Minnetrista, Minnesota lost his family heirloom that was handed down to him. Bahram was climbing up the rear of his boat and the medallion caught the platform of the boat and dropped into Lake Minnetonka, His wife’s friend looked up the Ringfinders on the web and contacted me, I was there the same day with the scuba gear and the underwater metal detector. This was a nice dive and a great recovery.
This past week has been very busy and I love it! I work 12 + hours a day and when I get off work I’ll go on a night search as we all know timing is everything when a ring is lost in a public place. The call I received yesterday was a distress call form a young man who lost his gold wedding band in Alouette Lake in Maple Ridge.After talking to Ray on the phone we decided to meet at 7:00 am at the park to search for his lost ring. When we met I could tell how much his ring meant to him as we talked about how it was lost. Its great to see men these days that are so much in love with their wife’s and to see how much that ring means to them and how bad they want it found! Ray helped me on my search today and he also spent a good amount of time snorkelling to try and find it…If you have never lost a ring you probably will never know the sick feeling you get thinking you’ll never see it again… Ray was very grateful when after close to 4 hours of searching the ring showed itself…Thank you Ray for the kind reward and I hope you never lose your ring again! I love my job! Lost something? Call me ASAP!You can watch the video of the search below…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFqRH8sUeS0
I helped David find his Platinum wedding band that he lost in the ocean 3 days before we made contact. He told me the story that just before they left the beach for home he was washing the sand off his daughter when he felt the ring come off his finger and into the water.
He spent the next 45 minutes searching for his wedding ring in the not so warm water but so often the end result is the sand wins! That’s only temporary as ”The Ring Finders” are there to help!
If David could put me in the area I will find it, if someone hasn’t beat me to it.
Well after searching the first area just 2 hours before dark we didn’t have any luck. David started to think that he put me in the wrong location after his wife sent him a picture of him in the water. I decided to return the next morning for low tide and search the new area…
It took 2 hours and I found the ring! I love a good hunt! And I love my job!
Thanks for reading my blog.
