  • 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

  • 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!!!

  • I have shared this story with everyone I know, you made my entire summer.
    testimonial for Darrin Gray (2019)



    We can’t thank you enough for all of your help, I still can’t believe we found the ring!! I have shared this story with everyone I know, you made my entire summer.

    On a side note, my daughter’s reward that day was mini-golf and ice cream, thought it was well-deserved.

    Thanks again!!


  • Chris’s dedication and perseverance absolutely made my decade!
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2019)


    What can I say... this guy has a heart of gold!

    One day, my toddler was holding my hand and fiddling with my wedding band while we walked across a huge grass field. Much to my dismay, when I looked down, my wedding band was missing. I could not believe that the wedding band that I had kept safe for the past ten years was gone in an instant. I looked with a large group of people for about 45 minutes with absolutely zero luck. We even bribed the kids at the birthday party to look for it. They were crawling around in the grass looking everywhere. I thought it was lost forever for sure. Particularly because it is a dainty, thin, little band that could easily hide in grass. Someone suggested that I call Chris Turner, the Ring Finder, so I thought I would give it a shot.

    Chris took my call right away and offered to help me look for my lost wedding band the very next day. Chris came right on time and spent quite a long time searching meticulously, narrowing down the possible location of the missing ring. Unfortunately, it did not turn up that afternoon, and I was further convinced that it was gone for good.

    Chris kindly offered to come back and search again with a more sensitive metal detector. I didn’t get my hopes up, since I didn’t want to be disappointed if it didn’t turn up on a subsequent scan. Well, it must have been my lucky day because Chris found my tiny little ring hiding in the grass. I was truly not expecting that it would turn up, so I was absolutely amazed and so incredibly grateful!! Chris’s dedication and perseverance absolutely made my decade! It was a truly irreplaceable item and Chris found it for me. I cannot thank Chris enough for time and energy that he put into reuniting me with my lost wedding band.

    Thank you so much for your time and your efforts Chris! You are a true gem!!
