The other day when I was searching and beach metal detecting for a clients lost Silver St Christophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And a Silver Ring at Scarborough Beach I found plenty of coins, but also a beautiful Gold and Ruby Ring which must have been lost recently, most likely by a overseas tourist as the Beach is right opposite the 5 Star Observation City Hotel.

Unfortunately I did not find my clients lost jewellery, but was very happy to find this beautiful Gold Ring with Nine Rubies on it.

Happy to reunite this ring with its original owner, but the person must be able to identify some of its unique characteristics.

Old Bottle Dump Find

Old Bottle Dump Find

I found a nice old Bottle Dump the other day on a farm just out of town in a very secluded and hidden spot. The good thing about this bottle dump is that know one has ever been through this dump and it is full of heaps of old bottles dating back to around 100 years.

I have been there a couple of times already and pulled out some really nice bottles to add to my collection, and obviously the old bottles are on the bottom of the dump.

The bottle dump is right next to an old tin clad house, so that also doubles as a great metal detecting spot for me to go to once the summer weather cools down a bit.

It must have been a beautiful old home back in its hey day, probably around the early 1900’s, the inside walls are all pressed tin, with beautiful patterns, now in rust and ruins…. but still a beautiful haunting sight.
I cant wait to metal detect around this old home in the near future, it will reveal its hidden treasures for sure!

Metal Detecting Honesty

A few days ago I wrote how I received a phonecall from Katie who lost her Silver St Christophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And a Silver Ring at Scarborough Beach near Perth Western Australia.

I did a 3 to 4 hour search of the area where she had lost the ring, but could not find it. So that night I asked on my blog if anyone who maybe had previously metal detected the area may have already found it to contact me.

Well yesterday I got a phone call from a friend Dick who told me his friend may just have found Katies lost jewellery which is fantastic news.

He informed me his friend found a Silver St Christophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And a Silver Ring on Scarborough Beach the day Katie lost it.

I told Katie of this great news, and now she has to wait a couple of weeks to be reunited with her lost jewellery as the metal detector guy is away working up North, so that is great news for Katie and for my blog that someone out there has the decency to return Katies treasured jewellery.

Who ever it is who found, a big thank you for me! Your honesty is beyond words.

Lost Scarborough Beach – Silver St Christophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And Silver Ring

Lost Scarborough Beach – Silver Saint Chirstophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And Silver Ring

If you are a metal detectorist and maybe you have found a Silver St Christophers Pendant, Silver Necklaces And Silver Ring?

I did a search of Scarbourough Beach last night to help Katie find these items.

The St Pendant and Necklace is of huge sentimental value to herself, it was recently given to her by her father, who just underwent major spinal surgery.

Katie was obviously very upset, she is new to Perth, from New Zealand. She told me the other day she accidently broke a mirror, and told me she is not superstitious, but now she is having second thoughts.

Katie was surfing down at Scarbourough Beach on Monday 8th December and removed her silver chains, pendant and silver ring and placed them on her towel whilst surfing, when she returned, she forgot about them, lifted her towel and dried herself and then went home.

An hour or so later she realised what she had done, and went back to the beach to do a frantic search … no luck.

She contact me, and last night I spent around 4 hours looking for the lost jewellery, unfortunately I had no luck.

So we are hoping that maybe someone may have found it, an honest person who could please maybe return these to Katie who is quite devastated.

I told Katie maybe a Perth Metal Detectorist may have found them, as I no other metal detecting guys frequent the beach on a daily basis.

So please if you have found it, please get in touch with me

2 Lost Rings, a Buried Rifle and a Lost Gold Chain!

I have done 5 ring  and lost jewellery metal detecting searches over the last 4 weeks and I have no success in finding the lost rings for my clients.

Lost Gold Chain

I received a phonecall from Guy who informed me his 4 year old daughter was playing with his thick gold chain in the backyard and she was throwing the gold chain high in the air and trying to catch it. Apparently this was a game she played on a regular basis.

This time she threw the gold chain and she told her dad that she did not her the chain land.

So Guy calls me in to do a search of his yard and surrounding areas.

It was a very frustrating search, because Guy was just relying on what his 4 year old daughter told him.

There could have been many scenarios about the lost gold chain such as follows.

  • She broke the chain and was too scared to tell her father, so she hid it.
  • Maybe she has hidden the chain from her Dad to put in her Glory Box to save for when she is a Big Girl!
  • Maybe the chain ended up high in a tree

Many more scenarios that could have happened.

Anyhow I went back to Guys place twice in the hunt for the lost chain, I searched up trees in his yard, on the other side of the fence which is very sandy soil.

Guy also informs me that the grass on the other side of the fence was mowed by a tractor mower after the chain was lost,  so the chain could have ended up in pieces, chewed up by the mower.

Lost White Gold Wedding Ring

I got a call from Kate telling me she lost her ring when she was doing some gardening in her yard, and she noticed a day later that the ring was missing. So I went over and did a thorough search of the front and back yard of her place.

Unfortunately no ring was found. I told her there would be a good chance that maybe her ring was thrown out with the garden waste. I hate not finding rings for my customers! So frustrating.

Buried Hunting Rifle

This is a very unusal search, I got a phonecall the other day to help search for a buried hunting rifle which was buried by the deceased father of a kangaroo shooter on a rural property some years ago.

I don’t ask too many questions, I just do my job, there was nothing illegal about this buried rifle, it was buried for a reason I won’t go into.

The son was only had a vague recollection to the whereabouts of the rifle, so basically we were acting on a hunch to the location.

Anyhow, I spent around three hours search for the lost rifle, once again no luck in finding it.

Lost Gold and Diamond Ladies Engagement Ring

Tonight I did a two hour search on Watermans Beach for a lost gold engagement ring, the girl had the ring removed her ring from her finger and put the ring on her leg as she applied the sunscreen oil on herself. She then stood up and immediately felt the ring fall off her leg. In a frantic panic her and her finance immediately started search for the ring and could not find it.

She called me today to ask if I could help. And of course I said I could and arranged to meet her at Watermans Beach near Hillarys Boat Harbour. They new the exact location of where the ring was lost and I started doing a grid search of the area. Two hours later I was still searching and ended up finding only a few coins and plenty of junk rubbish.

So I only presume either another Metal Detectorist has already found the ring, which was lost 2 days ago, or maybe the ring has been washed out to the water by the high tide.

So if you are a person who metal detects in that area, and have found it, please get in touch with me, and you’ll get a reward for the return of the ring to the girl who is obviously very upset about losing her ring.

End Note!

When it comes to helping people find their lost rings, jewellery and other items of value, just because someone loses or hides something, it does not mean that the lost item is going to be found by myself.

Things to take note of are as follows:

  • Someone else, such as another person with a metal detecto may have already found it
  • A Bird may have picked it up … Crows and Ravens collect shiny silver and gold things to attract mates to their nests
  • It may have been washed away with the tide
  • It may have been moved by a machine, such as a lawn mower, grader, beach vacuum machine etc
  • Million more scenarios!

Remember, if you have lost your ring, I can’t guarantee you that I will find it, but I promise you I will do my best trying. There is nothing better that finding a customers lost ring, and bringing back a smile to their faces.

How much do I charge?

I charge nothing at all to search for your lost item, but my services is based on a reward only if found basis that is, if I find your lost ring, jewellery etc, then it is up to you what you’d like to give me as a reward.

A small fuel surcharge may be required depending on the distance I need to travel.

If I don’t find your lost item, then I don’t expect anything.

I do not hire out my metal detectors.

I love my job!

Metal Detecting Perth’s Swan River

18 CT Ladies Gold and Diamond Ring - Swan River Metal Detecting Find

Recently I have not had much time to do any metal detecting, as my partner and I have just bought a Post Office and News Agency in my rural town in the Great Southern of Western Australia, Dumbleyung. We have been very busy doing some training courses in Perth.

But last week I found the time whilst I was in Perth to head down to the Swan River for a few hours to do a bit of treasure hunting on the sandy banks of the Swan River.

I decided to find a new metal detecting spot, so I had a look through my Street Directory and I found a nice little spot where there would be a good chance to find some rings, relics  and coins, an area which has been well used by people for the last 100 years or more.

I have uploaded photos of what I found that day and evening, and also before and after photos after I have cleaned my finds, such as the Silver Ring above and below.

The place when I went metal detecting, was Clarkson Reserve on the Maylands Foreshore.

When I was there, I met a curious lady who asked me what I was doing. Her name was Jenny Seaton, a media, radio and television personality who currently has her own program on Curtin FM a radio station broadcasting in the metropolitan area of Perth, Western Australia.

So today she is going to interview me on the radio, so thats a bit exciting and a first for me.

I told Jenny I would post photos of the items I found that night for her listeners to look at.

I found some great items, especially the Ladies 18ct Gold and Diamond Ring, which I found in about 3 foot of water. And also the Mens Silver Wave Ring which was in about the same depth.

So here is what I found on the evening I met Jenny on the Swan.
