  • From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for finding my lost 1980 NFL Conference Championship ring

    Item

    Dear Dave,

    From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for finding my lost 1980 NFL Conference Championship ring with your metal detector.

    I was reasonably sure I lost the ring while doing spring clean-up in the yard. The day I called you in desperation for help, you came over immediately to try and find the ring. Although the weather was miserably cold and pouring rain, you nonetheless scanned the yard for hours trying to find it. I was obviously disappointed when you could not find it, however you said you would like to return in warmer weather to try again.

    I was not absolutely sure I lost the ring in the yard, and for weeks looked everywhere but unfortunately it did not turn up. By summertime I had completely given up hope and contacted the NFL League office to inquire about replacing it (custom molds for all Super Bowl rings are kept on file).

    Then out of the blue in August you called me again, offering (at no fee) to come back for another search. On your second search, to my unbelievable surprise, YOU FOUND THE RING! under a landscaping bush. I was so thrilled when you told me, I actually broke down and cried with emotion/thankfulness.

    I cannot thank you enough for your dedication, honesty, integrity and persistence, and whole heartedly recommend anyone contact you for help locating lost items.

    You are truly and Angel of God!

  • I am so so grateful to Chris and The Ring Finders!

    Item

    I am so so grateful to Chris and The Ring Finders! It was so nice to have a happy ending to a really bad week.

    I lost my rings in the snow and then shortly after that had a pretty bad car accident. When I found The Ring Finders I was a little sceptical but thought, "this is probably my best shot at getting my rings back".

    After talking to Chris on the phone and then meeting him I was totally put at ease and felt confident that he could find my rings and sure enough he did.

    This man is such a kind hearted, easy going, truly good person. He has no fee and works purely on a rewards basis, which to me showed me that what he really loves is helping people.

    The world needs more kind people like Chris who are passionate about bringing joy to people's lives!

    If you ever lose something close to your heart, call The Ring Finders - they will do everything they can to help you find it, and in my experience they're pretty good at what they do! Thank you Chris!

  • You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners.

    Item

    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

  • Jarrod was there the next day when we returned to help us. We are so grateful for his help.

    I was so elated to find Jarrod! I was traveling from the Midwest, and lost my phone in the drift on the beach. We dug for so long, but could not find it.

    Jarrod was there the next day when we returned to help us. We are so grateful for his help. He was friendly and very prompt.

    Thank you so much!"

  • If you’ve lost something of value to you, call H. Connell Raate, he’s good at what he does

    Item

    When I went out to sunbathe in my backyard in June of 1966, I never expected that I was at the beginning of a 49 year adventure.  

    It was a beautiful summer day right after graduation, so I went outside in my yellow polka dot bikini (NOT), took my recently acquired high school class ring off, placed it on the blanket, put suntan lotion on, and laid down with a good book.  

    Later, I stood up, shook out my blanket and headed back to the cool house.  It was only later that I remembered my ring.  Out I went to get it.  Oh, no!  Where is it?  I looked for quite a while with no luck.  My hunt continued most every day for the rest of the summer.  Where the hell is this ring?  It was gone.

     

    Life goes on and I moved out.  When visiting my mother, I occasionally would go out and look for that beautiful green ring.  Nothing.

    After my mom died and before the house was sold, an acquaintance just happened to mention a friend of his whose hobby was metal detecting and who specializes in finding gold rings.  Why not?  Wouldn’t it be a hoot if, 49 years later, he found my lost ring?

    Imagine my surprise when that machine started singing and Connell eventually came up with a grungy and dirty but definitely green gold ring.  Good thing the house was in the country because I did come out with a whoop and holler heard for miles.

    I went to my 50th high school reunion the following summer and proudly wore that recently cleaned and re-sized (whose weight doesn’t change after 49 years?) new-looking class ring.  

    If you’ve lost something of value to you, call H. Connell Raate, he’s good at what he does, his charges are very reasonable and, most importantly, he is passionate about what he does.  If it’s findable, he’ll nab it!
