As the Manitoba winter temperatures drop lower & lower daily, it’s very important to have a good pair of warm gloves/mittens with you. Not only to help keep your hands from freezing in the frigid temperatures but also to keep your fingers from shrinking from the cold and thus having your wedding ring come off unknowingly when you pull your glove off. This is a common occurrence throughout the winter and “Lost Jewelry Recovery Service” receives many calls in regards to lost rings. With such cold temperatures people pull their gloves off fast to unlock doors or to deal with money not thinking that the possibility exists that their ring might come off and before you know it the glove goes back on without the ring on the finger. Many frantic calls come in to L.J.R. about lost rings and most scenario’s are the same: (it must have happened when I took my glove off). So the search is on once again. My best advise is: keep your hands warm so your fingers dont shrink from the cold and try to keep your hand closed when your gloves are off, this way your ring won’t be able to slide off your finger. It’s a real challenge to find a lost ring in the snow, because of the weight of the ring, it falls deep into the snow and works it’s way to the hard ground, so you have to clear the snow to swing the detector to get close enough to the ground if you plan on finding the ring. Like I stated: it’s always a challenge but with “good” metal detecting equipment, an experienced detectorist should have no problem finding the lost ring if in fact it’s where the owner said it was lost. On average L.J.R. get about 30 ring calls over the winter season but not all calls are “worthy of searching”, many rings are lost in parking lots, stores, and cars.So keep those hands warm and check those fingers whenever you take your gloves off. My service is always available to those who may need it in the future. visit the website for testimonials at: http://www.lostjewelryrecovery.com
Many people lose items such as wedding rings, chains & pendants along with keys , hearing aids, cell phones etc outdoors and the first thing that comes to mind is : I need to get a metal detector, where can I “rent a metal detector”? The answer to that question is simple: you can”possibly” rent a metal detector at the local equipment rental store if they have one available for $35.00 per day with a $100.00 deposit, but the detector you are going to rent is great for finding pull tabs & bottle caps and will pick up all types of trash unless you know how to set the “discrimination” mode on the detector and even then the constant chatter will drive you nuts. So why rent a metal detector when you can hire a “Professional” right here in the city of Winnipeg by contacting “Lost Jewelry Recovery Service“. With 6 seasons of searching for “Lost Jewelry”, L.J.R. has been very successful at jewelry recovery, and many other recoveries as well, just check out the website at: http://www.lostjewelryrecovery.com
Here at Lost jewelry Recovery, have thought about renting out metal detectors to the public but this technology is so “fragile” that any abuse of the detector will certainly lead to costly repairs, as well: the new technology takes many months to learn on a “high end detector”. We recommend that you save yourself the aggravation & cost of renting a metal detector that you will give up on within the first hour of use, So: why rent a metal detector? contact: http://www.lostjewelryrecovery.com or call us at: 204-291-1755…….. and let a professional find your lost item.
I received an email in regards to a lost “sweet sixteen gold ring” Jacqueline was devastated that she had lost her 14k gold ring that she had on her finger for the last 11 years given to her by her mother at the age of 16 of course. I was told the ring was not of great cash value but there was great sentimental value attached to it. The only problem was that it might be on private property, you see the ring had come off when Jacqueline had “flicked” something from her finger towards a chain link fence and heard the “ting” sound and quickly noticed the ring had left her finger. She did not know whether the ring had passed through the fence or hit the fence and bounced back in the grassy area, she and a co-worker searched on their knees with no luck and it seemed that the ring was gone forever.All Jacqueline had on her mind was that she needed to rent a metal detector but The next day Jacqueline had been driving with a friend in Winnipeg and happened to stop at a traffic light on the street directly behind my vehicle that has my “lost jewelery recovery service” logo on the windows, as well as the contact website. She emailed me and I responded. I went the next day and did a search of the area and quickly realized that the ring had to have passed through the fence. I would not trespass onto private property and risk my buisness so what I did was reach under the fence and pulled all that I could reach to my side of the fence which exposed the ring. the ring had to be picked up now by Jacqueline or a friend, and it was. Jacqueline now wears that same recovered ring. Glad I could help!
I recently received a call from Jason that told me he had lost his 10k white/gold wedding band in 5 feet of water out at Gull Lake will visiting friends and tossing the ball in the water. The ring had slipped off jason’s finger due to the cold water temp and the fact that it was a little too loose fitting.Jason had searched on metal detector rental and found my service and I made arrangement to meet with Jason Saturday morning and drive out to the site. Indeed the ring was lost just past the docks end of which was 5+ feet deep. I used my Detector Pro Pirate water detector and found many targets before recovering Jason”s ring 4 hours later. All in all the search was successful and the wedding ring is back on Jason’s finger once again. (better get it properly sized Jason). chalk up another successful recovery for “Lost Jewelry Recovery”
I recently got a call from “Brenda” who came to Transcona to visit her folks for the Christmas holidays. While attending a gathering at a relatives house, Brenda had her engagement ring slip off her finger just before she entered the house. The ring fell and hit the cement step and bounced out of site. Brenda and her husband to be, drastically sifted through the snow in freezing temperatures (-30C) to no avail. The next day while talking aboutthe lost ring, Brenda was told by her mother in law that she heard on a CBC Radio Winnipeg program about a Metal Detecting Service available that searches for lost jewelry. Without hesitation Brenda went on the internet and before long she came across “Lost Jewelry Recovery Service” and emailed Randy (myself) who responded and set up a search time. When I arrived at the location in -29C weather I knew I had to search reasonably fast so the detector wouldn’t freeze up from the intense cold. I searched the area in question with my White’s XLT detector set in Gold mode but could not come up with any solid hits, So I went outside the grid that Brenda told me the ring might be in and came upon a pile of snow that was piled up after the couple had been searching on their own the night before. The ring was not in the pile of snow but I swung the detector outside the pile and soon got a strong signal about 3 feet away from the pile. I gently swept the snow way from the target to reveal a beautiful white gold diamond solitaire engagement ring. I was very happy that I was able to find this ring when I did because the detector was very cold and so was I. The search took about an hour in total and at -30C that”s long enough outdoors. When Brenda came outside from warming up in the house and seen that I had recovered her lost ring she was jumping for joy. I guess it looked pretty grim there for a while but persistence paid off once again for “Lost Jewelry Recovery Service”
I’m glad you don”t have to go back home to Edmonton without your ring Brenda, and I’m sure you feel the same.
Only 2 days after being call out to recover a lost ring for Andrew, Matthew, Andrew’s buddy had lost his ring in the same way Andrew had. In fact: he had lost his ring at Andrew’s house during yet another snowball fight. This time the ring was lost at night time and in the front yard area. The guys looked unsuccessfully for sometime and gave up to the next day when a call came in to me to come search one more time. I thought the guys were pulling my leg when I was told about the ring being lost in the same yard doing the same thing as previous but when Matthew said he would meet me there at noontime, I was sure it was for real. Searching the front yard with the White’s XLT detector in “silver” mode didn’t take long to locate the lost 925. silver ring. I’m sure the guys are going to lay off the snowball fights for a while now, or at least take their rings off first before the next snowball fight.
The Manitoba winter has arrived and with it come the enjoyment of snowball fights and frolicking in the snow, But beware, cold temperatures and wet snow create conditions that may cause your wedding ring to easily come off without notice until it’s too late. Trying to find a lost ring in the snow is like finding a needle in the haystack (impossible) unless you have a dam good Metal Detector and lots of persistence to search in cold weather.
Such an occurance recently happened to Andrew after he and his wife of 2 years arrived home from the movies,after getting out of the vehicle Andrew grabbed a handful of snow and threw it playfully at his wife who was just exiting the car thus causing a challenging retaliation. Andrew chased his wife from the car throwing up snow at her not realizing that his wedding ring had come off. The next day Andrew has noticed that there was no ring on his finger. Doing a visual check of the path from the house to the car only brought on loss hopes of ever finding the lost ring, but after turning to the world wide net and searching Metal Detectors Manitoba Andrew came across my website http://www.lostjewelryrecovery.com and gave me a call.
I happen to be off work the morning the call came in and I was able to make my way to his house for noon time to start the search. After going over the details of the snowball throwing event I started working my way with the detector set on the “Gold” setting from the back of the carport towards the house and it wasn’t long (10 mins) before I got a strong signal tone through my headphones and I knew it would be Andrew’s lost ring and sure enough it was! I went and got Andrew from the house to show him the location of the recovered ring and watched the ear to ear grin on his face once he seen the ring once again.This is the part of the service I provide that I love, and I just can”t wait to see what challenge the next call brings.
