Lost Diamond Ring Hayward Lake, Mission, BC…Found

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Chris Turner- Ring Recovery Specialist…Lost your ring?… Metal Detecting Service/Call ASAP  Anytime   778-838-3463


I get a call from a young lady who told me that she had lost her ring at the Hayward lake in Mission, this is about a 2 hour drive from where I live. We discussed the search over the phone and the fact that it was lost where someone else could easily find it with a metal detector I knew I had to get there as soon as possible. We met the next morning and I heard the story of the ring and what it meant to them to get it back. I assess the search area, which I thought was going to be smaller and it turned out to be half of the swimming area. This could easily take a couple hours to grid search, but that’s OK I will do what I have to do to find that smile.

Because this lake/park does not allow Metal Detecting we had to get permission first, the permission was granted and I began my search in the areas they believe the ring could be in, after 20 minutes and no ring I asked a few more questions, one place stood out to me and I started searching that area and found her beautiful custom made diamond ring only minutes later… A total of 30 minutes to find her lost Smile!

Lost Ring Found with a metal detector in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania!

  • from Altoona (Pennsylvania, United States)

Brandon is smiling again!

The beautiful rings and necklace that was lost.


I got a call from Brandon on Sunday that his wife had lost her wedding rings and a necklace at the Moraine State Park Regatta near Pittsburgh, PA. She had been swimming in the lake with her nieces while Brandon was on the shore with their dog. When she came back to the blanket, she reached up to her neck where her rings and necklace had been. Brandon said she had a look of sheer terror when she realized the rings and necklace had come off somewhere in the water.

I met Brandon at the state park the next day. After getting permission at the park office to search the water, Brandon and I headed down to the water to start the hunt. I had my Garrett AT Pro metal detector and Brandon had his snorkeling gear as he wanted to join in on the search. The odds were stacked against us… There was a detectorist in the area who had just worked the beach and reports of someone searching the water earlier in the morning. The swimming area is murky and has a concrete base which made my sand scoop essentially useless and my metal detector sound like a screaming child in the grocery store (for the metal detecting enthusiasts, I turned down the sensitivity of the machine and notched out the signals from the rebar in the concrete, making only the gold range audible). Brandon was pretty sure his wife had lost the rings in waist deep water which reminded me I still need to get waterproof headphones, especially if I have to bend down to pick up a target.

After about 30 minutes of grid searching, I found the first ring. « Is this it? » I said to Brandon holding the ring high in the air. He looked over in amazement with a huge smile on his face. A minute later I found the second ring and the smiles kept coming. I told him necklaces were really hard to find but we would certainly try. We searched in the same area for about 5 minutes and I kept getting a faint signal in the waist deep water. I reached under the water with my pinpointer but to no avail- it wouldn’t pick up the signal. Finally I said to Brandon that the signal is right under my coil and if he could dive down and pull up scoops what little sand there was down there we may find it. After about three tries, he came up with the necklace in his hand. Some great teamwork had paid off.

I am truly grateful for having met such a genuine person as Brandon, and for The Ring Finders for bringing us together for the day. Literally one day after joining this group I was able to help someone. Many thanks!



Found and returned lost iphone at Misquamicut Beach Rhode Island .

  • from Woonsocket (Rhode Island, United States)

On July 3rd, while metal detecting on Misquamicut Beach, I discovered an iPhone 7  buried in the sand.  Once the iPhone was charged, it gave a phone number to call if the phone was found.  Its owner had used a special application, which allowed him to put a message on his iPhone when it was lost.  I called the number and connected with Anthony, the owner, who was very glad to hear from me.  Anthony had lost the phone two days earlier.  After searching the beach, he didn’t expect to get it back.  He was in Boston when I called, and it was late evening, but he was happy to drive to Rhode Island to claim his phone.

On Sunday afternoon, I received a call from Brian, who had lost his wedding band in Barber Pond.  He explained that he had been playing with his daughter in about knee-deep water, when he saw his ring fall into the water.  Hidden by silt which clouded the water, the ring soon disappeared into the sand.  Brian, his wife, and friends searched but couldn’t find the ring.  That’s when Brian consulted the internet and found me on  I met Brian at a small parking area near the lake.  After a ten minute walk through the woods, the path opened to a beautiful little beach on the pond.  It would have been a lot more pleasant had it not been 95 degrees and very humid.  Fortunately, I was able to recover the ring in about 45 minutes.  Brian was a very happy young man!



How to a Find Lost Ring in Cape Cod Waters – Call a Ring Finder

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

Family members, water and rings have been not mixing well this month. My third call to search for a ring lost while playing with a family member was the most difficult due to so many targets in a small area. Confounding the problem was that I chose to use my largest coil for a quick recovery. A combination not wanted in an area filled with targets. After the previous two finds I was confident it would not take long…not to be. A little over an hour and on my third pass over the gridded area I found and returned the ring to Sean. Time for smile and ring photos to be taken.

Lost Gold Ring in Daytona Beach surf….Found!

  • from Sanford (Florida, United States)

Last week I made plans to do some beach detecting and decided to search an area of Daytona Beach that had a couple of high end Hotels.  Lots of people vacation here this time of year and I figured there had to be some treasures lost in the surf and sand just waiting for me to dig up.  I arrived two hours before low tide and spent a total of 6 hours swinging my Whites Dual Field metal detector in and out of the water hoping for a few good finds.  I found a few coins , a couple of junk ear rings, loads of hair pins and even a small medallion off of someone’s necklace.  Then about 4 and a half hours into my search I got a really sweet signal and out pops a nice gold ring!  I had to wait till I got back to my van to read what was engraved inside.  The name Mariam and a date of 03.05.2003.  When I got home I showed my family the nice gold ring that I found and I figured it would be another nice addition to my collection of rings…but it was not to be.

Later that evening I sat down at my computer to check my e-mails and look up the markings on the inside of the ring.  The markings turned out to be Egyptian and told me the ring was 18 carat gold.  Next I checked my e-mail and there was a message thru from a lady who said the following:  « Hi Mike,  I found your info online.  My husband, Amgad, lost his wedding band in the ocean in Daytona Beach in front of the Hilton resort last Saturday.  We tried hard to find it with no hope.  My husband has had his ring for 11 years and it slipped off his finger in a second while surfing with our son.  Please, if you can help us find it we would really appreciate it.  We live in Missouri, about 15 hours away and we had to go back home last Sunday, but we still have hope and faith that everything is possible.  Please we  need your help, you don’t know how sad my husband is since he lost his ring!   Thanks, MARIAM

I could hardly believe what had just happened!  Could I have actually found the ring they had lost before getting the request to look for it?  There really was no doubt!!  The name Mariam— plus the fact that Amgad had worn his ring for 11 years and the date of 03.05.2003 was proof enough!

After sharing my MIRACLE with Mariam she wrote me back saying:  « Oh my GOD, I thought you ignored my e-mail.  It is a Miracle!  My hands are shaking while I write to you.  There are no words I can say to thank you enough.  You are the angel that God sent to find our ring.  You would not believe how this past week was for my husband.  I will tell everyone I know about »

Two days later Mariam wrote:  « I still cannot believe what happened!  I read your e-mail 10 times a day and tell myself God is so good!  What you do as a hobby (metal detecting) is really a very helpful thing.  Especially when people like us lose a very valuable thing – that losing it really touches their hearts and finding it by an angel like you touches their hearts even more!  As I said and I will be saying for the rest of my life, thank God and thank you for being God’s messenger that found our missing wedding band and delivered  the GREAT NEWS to us when we so badly needed it!! »


Miriams husband and ring

Mariam and Amgad, I am so happy to have been able to help you in getting your ring back and thank you for your generous reward and kind words.

Metal Detector Rental for Lost Diamond Engagement Ring and Gold Wedding Band

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

You can rent a metal detector and search for hours and not find your lost ring…Dose that mean your ring is not there? I have found over 300 lost rings for people over the past 20 years and I’d say more then 60% of my clients had rented a metal detector before hiring me to find their lost ring.

A very small percentage of people who rent a metal detector will find their lost ring as most people have never used a metal detector before, and the one’s you rent are not the best out there. The other factor is where to look for your lost ring…

For me, in most cases, I find the ring nowhere close to where people think they lost it. So how many people are out there who rented a metal detector and searched for hours to just gave up because the detector was beeping everywhere and they couldn’t find the ring where they thought they’d lost it…

That’s where this directory (The Ring Finders) comes in handy! The Ring Finders Directory consists of metal detecting specialists that can save you time and find what you thought was lost forever!

If you don’t find your your lost ring…Don’t give up!  Hire a metal detecting specialist!

And yes we can find your lost ring in snow!

Happy Holidays!
