  • You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners.
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2013)


    I believe in angels and one knocked on my door on Saturday, August 3, 2013. For the 5 previous days, my family and I had frantically searched inside my house and in the garden for my cherished engagement ring.

    I received this beautiful ring from my husband on December 23, 1967 and have worn it for 45 and a half years.My beloved husband passed away 13 months ago and my wedding rings and 25th anniversary band became an enormous comfort to me. I started wearing the rings 24/7 and even had the diamonds checked for loose stones.

    My worst fear was that I would lose the solitaire diamond from the engagement ring. Imagine my horror when on Sunday evening, July 28th 2013, I discovered the engagement ring missing from my finger after watering my front and back garden. After searching and searching for my ring to no avail, I found Chris Turner and TheRingFinders on my computer. He came to my rescue on Saturday August 3, 2013 and located my precious ring in my back yard in less than 5 minutes.

    I was completely astounded as my son-in-law and I had searched the area where Chris found it. Apparently, I had stepped on the ring and it was embedded in the dirt under the grass. I would never have found it on my own. I was overwhelmed by Chris' professionalism, experience, kindness and caring. To me that ring was irreplaceable.

    Thank you so much, Chris. You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners. I highly recommend Chris as I thought my beautiful ring was gone forever. It meant the world to me and am so thankful for Chris' help. I will never forget the sight of my ring in his hand as he presented it to me.

    With my grateful thanks and highest regards,

    Wendy Porter

  • Without the confidence of a professional metal detector operator I would have never gone back
    testimonial for Ron Wilton (2019)


    I lost my wedding band on a snow day with my family in Running Springs. I went downhill with a sled and when I stood up the ring was off my finger. I looked everywhere and I couldn’t find it. I went back with a cheap metal detector and all I found was pieces of chain and other ferrous metals. The metal detector wasn’t sensitive enough and the snow definitely didn’t help.

    Almost a month went by and my brother-in-law suggested I find someone on The Ringfinders. My wife looked on the website and it said Ron was in my area. As it turns out he lives so close to me it was probably easier to walk to his house than drive. Ron answered my email immediately and the next day we loaded up in his truck and we drove to Running Springs. The car ride was enjoyable. Ron is very easy to talk to. When we got there I was showing Ron the area I thought it would be. As Ron was re-parking his truck to unload I walked down and looked around. After picking up a couple pieces of garbage I saw something that looked too round to be a piece of chain. It was my ring!! I ran up the side of the hill and I told Ron I had found it. He was thrilled. I told him all I needed was some of his good luck!! I was very happy I called Ron. Without the confidence of a professional metal detector operator I would have never gone back up to look for my ring and I would have never found it. Ron has a new friend for life!!

  • Thank you again Dave! You are an angel.
    testimonial for Dave Cartee (2019)


    This guy is amazing! We had to call him out to our condo on Tuesday night. I lost both my wedding ring and anniversary rings at the beach. Lost them sometime around 11am and didn’t realize it until 6pm. I had taken them off to put lotion on and tucked them “safely” into my swimsuit skirt fold. Totally forgot about them and stood up at various times. The amount of sadness and panic I felt was overwhelming. By the Grace of God we found Dave and he came out that night and found them right away. So eternally grateful to him and his lovely wife. From the first phone call and several texts that followed he was very nice and tried to calm my anxiety (it was very high) and reassured me it should be an easy find. Thanks be to God he was 100% right. The flood of emotions were overwhelming at times. Thank you again Dave! You are an angel.

  • Thanks for your efforts Jonathan. You were very professional, responsive, and intelligent in your effort.
    testimonial for Jonathan Hamill (2019)


    I was playing basketball in my driveway one afternoon with my kids and after chasing down a loose ball, extended my arms to grab it. When my hand stopped its extension, my wedding ring kept going. As if in slow motion, I felt it slide completely off my finger, didn’t see where it went, and then all I heard was silence. No rustling of leaves as it hit the grass or flower bed and no ping sound of metal hitting concrete. Only silence, followed by that sinking feeling of something that’s gone horribly wrong. I proceeded to spend several hours over the next 2+ days performing the reenactment and sifting through leaves, grass, and street looking for my ring. While researching rentals and a potential purchase of a metal detector, I came across and Jonathan Hamill. Sent him a text and he was very responsive. Over the next half hour, we had discussed the story and coordinated a meeting time. He showed up at my residence and the search was on. About an hour later, I had news that he had found my ring, in a seemingly unlikely and impossible landing spot I might add. I was out of the doghouse and the world was right again! Thanks for your efforts Jonathan. You were very professional, responsive, and intelligent in your effort. You will be highly recommend to anybody I talk to with a similar situation.

  • I would totally recommend Dave’s services
    testimonial for Dave Cartee (2019)


    Absolutely amazing!! From the first phone call I had with Dave, till the last handshake, Dave was nothing but professional. Dave felt like a friend from the first moment I spoke to him. Dave is very personable and easy to talk to. I would totally recommend Dave’s services to any of my friends without a doubt. It only took Dave a few minutes to find my ring and he would have probably found it sooner if it wasn’t for the crushed beer can in my front yard haha. Dave, I appreciate your service and hopefully I don’t have to hire you again but will if I lose my ring again. Thank you so much and my wife also appreciates you lol
