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

    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,

  • “Words cannot express how thankful we are to Craig Ostendorf and his wife from The Ring Finders!

    “Words cannot express how thankful we are to Craig Ostendorf and his wife from The Ring Finders! We had been vacationing in Ft. Myers Beach, Florida and I had forgotten I had taken my rings off and placed them on my lap to put on suntan lotion. We left the beach and headed back to our condo. I realized hours later on a Friday night of Easter weekend that I lost them in the most crowded area of the beach. We contacted Craig and he graciously came to the rescue at 9:00 pm at night. They found my rings in 5 minutes! They were professional, courteous, and sympathetic to the most heartbroken wife in the world. It was truly a miracle. They were our angels and we are eternally grateful”

    Thank you!

  • The graciousness and caring Chris showed towards two complete strangers will never be forgotten
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2017)

    On April 14th, a friend of mine lost a coin holding much sentimental value in a grass field. With the help of many of our classmates, we searched the field for hours with no luck.

    In our search for a company that could rent us a metal detector on a holiday Friday, we came across Chris Turner and www.theringfinders.com. I left him a message and to our absolute delight he agreed to come help us with our search.

    In short. Chris came out to the University of British Columbia at 7pm on a holiday Friday (after a full day of work, I might add) and found the missing coin in 15 minutes!

    The graciousness and caring Chris showed towards two complete strangers will never be forgotten, thank you so much Chris!

  • I shared with him my story, he mapped out a grid, began to detect and the rest is history.
    testimonial for Steve Smith (2017)

    Item

    Walking to and around the Strand in Hermosa with my daughter has become routine over the past couple years. From the Baby Bjorn at just a few months, to the hip, an occasional seat on the shoulders overseeing what probably feels like sitting on top of the world, to now, keeping up with the little Olympic sprinter, one thing is certain, I am in love. Having married three years ago, my wife and I were blessed with a beautiful daughter and our lives were forever turned upside down from the moment she arrived.

    Recently, walks to the Strand have one general purpose, the swing. We wake up, we eat breakfast, maybe take in a little PAW PATROL and then we’re out the door. April 10th started as usual business. We crossed the street and I asked my daughter if she wanted down to walk. Of course, she declined. I asked if she were ready for the swings and she nodded while looking at me knowing I had the answer.

    As we approached our stomping grounds, on this morning, we would have company.

    Not paying mind to the closeness of the action, I put my daughter in the swing where she immediately focused on the volleyballs flying in and around our direction. As usual, I would give her a few pushes, move back a bit, drop to my knees and begin building my princess her sand castle that she eagerly awaits to climb, stomp, smash and use as a slide.

    We had been at the beach for no more than ten minutes. While constructing the castle, a ball zipped in my direction that I caught and without hesitation, threw back to one of the girls training. Moments later, another ball would finds its way in my direction that I would catch, again, throw back however this time, would throw with it my wedding ring. I immediately felt its weight “fly off” my finger.

    Happening so quickly, I couldn’t see the exact direction the ring would travel however, my world stop spinning. Flashbacks of my wedding day resurfaced. Forgotten faces would reappear, and the sentiment of life would take new ownership. The beach became a sea of memories and with it carried a feeling of unexplainable loss.

    I called my wife to share with her what happened. She would soon show up to help aid in the search. The volleyball team would literally come into play as well. A morning fit a father and his daughter would become without notice, a search and rescue effort.

    After forty-five minutes without discovery, a couple had approached the swings and learned of my story. Not too focused on their involvement, I would overhear the woman conversing with her partner that she was going to look for a metal detector. Having no success at a local restaurant on the Strand, she walked to the Lifeguard unit where she was provided a yellow piece of paper with a gentleman’s phone number on it. That gentleman would happen to be Steve Smith.

    Not losing hope, but confidence, I reluctantly dialed Steve who would answer and agree to meet with me. What would feel like an eternity, Steve would arrive a little over an hour after having talked on the phone with gear in hand and new life.

    I shared with him my story, he mapped out a grid, began to detect and the rest is history.

  • I’m so grateful for your efforts and enthusiasm in finding it. I feel whole again.

    Hi Sean

    Reading this brought tears of happiness AGAIN as I recall the last week and being reunited with my ring, which has felt much like a dream. This ring is one of those special rings that can’t just be remade or bought again, it signifies my first born child, years of marriage to a gorgeous man, and a Silversmith’s name which my daughter now carries. It is not something money can replace and I’m so grateful for your efforts and enthusiasm in finding it. I feel whole again.

    Thanks Sean!
