  • 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

I am so grateful to Kent and TheRingFinders for finding my lost ring!

  • Sean was awesome! He worked tirelessly until he found the ring
    testimonial for Sean Kelly (2019)


    While boating with friends, my wedding band & engagement ring went flying off my finger when I tried to swat a fly away from my face. Thankfully the engagement ring landed on our friend’s boat which was tied up next to us, but the wedding band was gone. We searched our boat and our friends, we weren’t even sure it landed in the water but my husband jumped in anyway to look for it, nothing. The next day we went back and my husband spent over two hours snorkeling trying to find it, no luck. After contacting our insurance agent we confirmed that it was fully covered but we didn’t want another ring, we wanted that one.

    I found Sean Kelly from on line, located in Rockport over 100 miles away, I wasn’t even sure he would travel to Rangeley but thankfully he did. Sean and his wife Darcy drove nearly three hours to help us.

    The ring was in 6-8 feet of water, the bottom was really silty, it took very little movement and visibility was almost completely gone. Given the size of the ring, the conditions and the amount of time that had passed (a week by the time we found Sean and he was able to come to our rescue) I really didn’t think it could be found but I knew we had to try, it was our Hail Mary.

    After an hour of searching, Sean came back to the boat for a second tank of air, a short rest and back into the water he went. Visibility was near zero due to the silty bottom, we could tell he was having a difficult time keeping his bearings but he was persistent.

    Nearing the second hour, I had pretty much given up hope and was resolved that my ring was gone forever. I started putting things away, preparing for the trip back to camp, and trying not to cry. But then Sean swam back to our boat, held out his hand and showed me my wedding band, I didn’t even try to hold back the tears. I think I was just as shocked to see it again as the day I lost it.

    Sean was awesome! He worked tirelessly until he found the ring and was invested in the search as much as we were. You can tell this is very personal for him, and his family. His wife couldn’t wait to call their daughter and let her know her Dad had found the wedding ring. We are so grateful and thankful to Sean, and his family who are so supportive, we could not have done it without him.

    If you lose something, first don’t panic. Second find some way to mark the location as best you can (my husband used gps, and took a photo of the shore line). Next, contact Sean! Oh, and DO NOT post on social media, let the professionals get there first!

  • We truly think of Tom as a friend now...
    testimonial for Tom Perry (2019)


    Tom is a blessing. To be honest, I was not sure that this service was actually a possibility. It sounded way to good to be true. But, when I called Tom, he instantly said he was on his way and that he would give it a shot. Meanwhile, so many friends and family (and even strangers) told me it was going to be ok. They told me that the ring was only a piece of metal and that I should be thankful for my life and the lives of others that I love. Of course, I understand this since I have lost one too many in my life, and this entire situation made me appreciate all that I do actually have. Still, it hurt to lose such a sentimental piece. My mother in law who gave me this ring trusted me with it. When I called her to tell her that I lost it, she sang “Mother Ocean” by Jimmy Buffet to me focusing on the line “And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen”. I was beginning to accept the lose since the ocean had my treasure, and after all, my husband and I are pirates, so it made sense. But, when Tom jumped off that ferry, we snatched him up on our golf cart and headed to the beach. He went straight to work and found the ring in about 20 minutes. My husband and I celebrated with each other, our friends, and our family. I learned so much through this experience: be thankful for what you had and what you do have, trust humanity, and never give up. Also, don’t put lotion on your ringed hands before swimming in the ocean, or if you do, TAKE OFF YOUR RINGS!

    We truly think of Tom as a friend now and hope to see him some time in the future.

  • The Spring Lake Police Dept recommended TheRingFinders and we called Dennis...
    testimonial for Dennis Burlingame (2019)


    Dennis is seriously amazing! We lost our engagement ring on the beach and didn’t realize until we got home. The Spring Lake Police Dept recommended TheRingFinders and we called Dennis right away. He met us 15 minutes later on the beach and asked us to mark off the area where we had been sitting hours earlier. We left him to do his work and he scanned the area. About 15 minutes in he began digging, and removed his headphones because he had found the ring. We couldn’t believe our eyes – we will never forget Dennis and can’t recommend him enough. Thank you, Dennis!!!
