  • 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 truly grateful for all your aloha and genuine desire to simply help others.
    testimonial for Joe Au-Franz (2018)


    It’s crazy to think that after hours of searching on my own I had almost given up. I’m so glad I found your website and decided to give you a call. Seeing you pop your head out of the water holding my ring in your hand was an incredible relief… exactly where I thought it was yet i would have never found it on my own. I am truly grateful for all your aloha and genuine desire to simply help others. Mahalo Joe!

  • Richard gave up his time to come and search for it for me. He is an amazingly generous person
    testimonial for Richard Higham (2018)


    We can’t thank Richard enough for coming all the way from Swanage to find my engagement ring for us.

    I was absolutely devastated when it had slipped from my hand and we were unable to see it anywhere.

    I am so unbelievably grateful that Richard gave up his time to come and search for it for me.

    He is an amazingly generous person, both with his time and the fact the only payment he wanted was a donation to charity which we gladly made. Thank you so much!

  • Mark is really good at what he does and is also a super nice guy! Give him a call!
    testimonial for Mark Rubey (2018)


    Mark was a veritable life saver! After my wife’s expensive ring literally disappeared into the sand we figured it was gone for good. Even though we had a good idea of where it was, searching by hand accomplished nothing. Mark arrived right on time with the most impressive looking metal detector I’ve ever seen. Within minutes he found the ring — in the exact area we had been searching so carefully by hand! Mark is really good at what he does and is also a super nice guy! Give him a call!

  • DON’T GIVE UP and give CHRIS a call “
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2018)


    To be honest I never expect that I would lose my wedding ring . It flipped my emotion upside down , not that because how much the ring is worth . It’s because it’s a wedding ring , it’s a symbolic item and it means a lot to us. I spent countless hours searching for the ring and even bought a metal detector to try finding it. Obviously I am not a professional and I decided to give up. The next day when I woke up , I was annoyed by my finger without a ring on there. It’s just like a missing puzzle.

    Guess what everyone do when they need help ?? Answer is google , that’s where miracle start to happen. I still remember I was talking with my co-worker about my lost ring and the website I said how in the world that there’s person who dedicate themselves to find the memorable pieces for others ? Since I have nothing to lose already and Chris is my last hope. I gave him a call right away and the response is quick and firm “ I will be right there for you” . Words can’t really describe the feeling that someone who doesn’t even know you are willing to offer you hand.

    “The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens. DON’T GIVE UP and give CHRIS a call “

    Best Regards
