EDMONTON – When you lose a piece of jewellery and you’ve exhausted all your energy trying to find it, who do you call? The Ring Finders, of course.
Norm Peters is a salesman from St. Albert, but his true passion is ring finding.
“Really it’s not a business, it’s a hobby. The hobby consists of metal detecting, of course, and trying to find, locating missing rings.” says Peters.
He’s is part of an elite group of metal detectors with over 350 members worldwide and has about a 95 per cent success rate.
“It’s kind of detective work,” adds The Ring Finder.
Peters has searched for lost jewellery far and wide. Everywhere from backyards, acreages and farms to ponds and lakes, even the garbage.
Over the years, there’s been many success stories. For example, recovering a ring that’s been missing for four years.
Peters works on a reward system and accepts what his clients feel his service is worth.
In the small percentage of cases where he can’t find the lost jewellery, he will charge a small fee for his time.
