  • 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

  • Thank you very much’ for your retrieval efforts and returning the ring my wife put on my finger 16 years ago.
    testimonial for Dave Cartee (2018)


    I can only say I could not ask for a better end to a situation I’d almost walked away from. After dropping the ring and the immediate search around my feet, I found a line reference on shore and began shuffling my feet hoping for the million to one chance of touching it…no luck. I explained to Ami that we were standing on top of it, that the density of gold took it to the bottom and the shape trapped enough sand that it was completely covered within seconds. After an hour of looking (36″ of water), I’d written off finding it. Being a land detectorist and a diver, I’d on several occasions considered purchasing an underwater machine and even suggested to Ami in the heat of the search that I should go ahead and buy one to retrieve my ring. We went about our day, down on the loss. That evening, Ami found Dave via an internet search and made contact. He responded Saturday evening and we returned an email Sunday morning, learning that he had already packed and was eager to help us. We were disappointed when Jeannie text us that he’d pulled a muscle, but gave him our best and checked out of the hotel. We were about to enter the Peg Leg’s for lunch when we got the call that he was better and enroute. When we got back to the hotel, Dave was already preparing to enter the water based on the references I’d given him. He gridded the area and in no time offered me the honors of scooping it up. All I can say is ‘Thank you very much’ for your retrieval efforts and returning the ring my wife put on my finger 16 years ago. It was a pleasure to meet both you and Jeannie and wish you both the best.

  • If you ever happen to lose something you are in great hands with Sean!!!
    testimonial for Sean Kelly (2018)


    Sean we cant thank you enough for helping us out! When you are so stressed from losing something so valuable you are rarely thinking clearly. We all started searching the lake for hours until it got dark which caused the ring to go deeper into the sand making it impossible to find without your help. Luckily we came into contact with you and its unbelievable how quickly you were able to get out there and how soon you were able to find the ring.

    For anyone who has lost something Sean was extremely responsive and is just such a genuinely nice and honest person. It was a long drive for him and he made it a priority to come out the next morning (we spoke at 1 am) because we were planning to leave back to New Jersey. If you ever happen to lose something you are in great hands with Sean!!!

  • Thank you Sean Kelly from the very bottom of my heart.
    testimonial for Sean Kelly (2018)


    I will be forever grateful to Sean Kelly for finding my wedding ring. I was devastated, hopeless, and quite positive that I would never see or wear my most valued possession again. We were far north camping with family on vacation when Mr Kelly left the message that my ring was found – he wanted us to enjoy vacation

  • You are an answer to prayer
    testimonial for Gregg Larabel (2018)


    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The diamond belonged to my grandmother so is an antique, so could not have replaced. You are an answer to prayer.
