Lost Engagement Ring in Farmers Field, Rolly View, Alberta Canada

  • from Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)




I received a call from Krystal regarding her white 14k gold engagement ring which she had lost out in Rolly View, in the county of Leduc.  After asking Krystal my usual questions I agreed to meet her.

Upon arriving at the location Krystal showed me exactly where she and her boy friend stood when he proposed to her and gave her the ring. With the excitement of accepting his proposal Krystal shook her hand and the ring flew off her finger into the snow! They searched the immediate area with no luck so decided to go back to the city and purchase a metal detector.  They headed back to continue the search but Krystal told me the metal detector made so many sounds that they did not understand and gave up the search and headed home.  While doing a Google search on “how to find a lost ring” she found me on the Ringfinders Blog Page. Within five minute Krystal had her ring back on her finger and was very grateful to have called me.

Thank you Krystal for getting in touch with me. I am so glad to have been able to find your ring.

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.

Jennifer called me yesterday afternoon! Asking if I could help her find her lost bracelet at a soccer field earlier that day, Jennifer told me she had a whole class of kids searching the grounds. They did find her pendant but could not find the bracelet. I agreed to meet her at the soccer field at six forty-five which it was starting to get dark at that time Jennifer told me the bracelet was given to her by her husband 30 years ago so it had a very sentimental value to her and imperative that the bracelet be found.

Jennifer took me to the approximately location where the pendant was found I placed my markers and told Jennifer to place other markers around the field where she thought she had walked before realizing that the bracelet was gone.

After about one hour searching her bracelet was found she could not believe how come the kids could not find the bracelet I told her without the markers it’s hard to concentrate on the field if you have no reference points to go by?

After asking Zack a few questions I agreed to head out to Skeleton Lake approximately 160km NE of Edmonton.

I meet Brooke at the lake and she showed me the approximately area that her ring slipped off her finger. It was roughly 40 feet from the shore line in 4.5 feet of water! Brooke told me they had bought a metal detector and had searched for a few hours with no luck at all.

After about 1.5 hrs searching the sandy gravel bottom of the lake I finely received the sound that I was searching for from my detector. I used my scoop and scooped Brooke’s ring from the bottom of the lake where it had been for the past 24 hours!

I called Brooke over and asked her to look in the scoop! The look on her face was indescribable and she had tears of joy to have her ring back on her finger.

I agreed to meet Blake at the church when I got there he showed me the location where he felt his ring could be, he was around a community garden plot picking garbage and cleaning up the yard then he tells me he put the garbage in bags and dumped them in the dumpster.
My gut feeling was that the ring was in the dumpster! I suggested to Blake to go into the dumpster and remove all the bags and spread them out so I would be able to scan each bag;  while inside the dumpster Blake found his ring lying at the bottom of the bin which made his day.
Thank you Blake for reaching out to me once again to locate his ring, I had done a successful search for Blake back in 2014 he had remembered me and the service I provide.

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.
